"Clifford has been crafting celebratory itineraries for 33 years. His industry contacts result in benefits like suites in sold-out hotels, tours led by the hotel managers themselves, and guides vetted for their LGBTQ-friendliness, even in places like the Middle East. He also goes to great lengths to arrange activities tailored to personal passions. On a recent trip to India, he paired an international interior designer with celebrity tastemakers for a personal design session. Clifford is also applauded for his extensive hotel knowledge. He’ll pair clients with hidden gems like a suite from a chic boutique in The Catskills to an ultimate glamping getaway in Luang Prabang. He’s often invited to scout new hideaways long before they’re on the radar of the mainstream, giving his clients an inside track to new experiences long before they hit social media stardom"
