A Letter From Lisa
An independent affiliate of Travel Experts,
a Virtuoso agency
Welcome to Thornton-Hall Travel. I’m Lisa Hall, founder and leading travel advisor. I believe that travel enriches our lives, giving us fresh eyes to see not only the world but also ourselves from a new perspective. So let me introduce you to an elevated travel experience you will find nowhere else—an experience both distinct and authentic.
Creating a seamless travel experience requires not only careful, detailed planning but also a comprehensive knowledge of the destination. A seasoned traveler myself, I have toured over 35 countries, including a recent immersion experience in Italy with my family. Either I or my partners have personally inspected the destinations and properties I recommend so that I can advise my clients with firsthand experience and insider tips.
And in my 25 years as a professional travel agent, I have cultivated relationships with the best luxury travel brands and experts around the world, giving you access to exclusive opportunities unavailable by booking your trip on your own. I view my relationships with my colleagues and suppliers to be just as important as my relationships with my clients, and I strive to maintain trust and respect with each person I work with.
With me as your personal travel advisor, the only thing you will need to plan is what you will pack in your suitcase. You can be confident that I will plan your trip with both expertise and enthusiasm, making you the VIP of your vacation.
Let’s get started.
