Benefactor Travel was founded in 1993 by Athlyn Fitz-James and Thomas Hamilton. They continue to lead the company overseeing a highly talented staff fluent in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German and Dutch. Our team also has expertise in the fields of art, architecture, history, music, dance, wine and gastronomy.

BT is the only cultural travel company to have offices on both sides of the Atlantic and this makes a huge difference in terms of up-to-date information, ongoing knowledge, trip quality, daily responsiveness to clients and also price. Being close to the product ensures that we are always on the cutting edge in terms of private collections, exhibitions, performance schedules, emerging artists and the best hotels and restaurants to enhance your program.

But we are also close to you. Our Client Relations Office in the Eastern Standard time zone can be reached at 800-801-6147 and handles all mailings, travelers' assistance, program registration, payment and insurance. Once the program is established, this office handles questions from the institution and individual travelers. We look after all the details and questions that crop up daily so that you can concentrate on running your institution.

Our Marketing Office is located in the Boston area and if you would like to discuss a destination, talk about a potential program or receive a proposal, we will telephone or arrange a face-to-face meeting. You can reach us there at 508-736-0053
