A new year, a new vision and a new perspective

Cowardice aside – this year we are taking the services for direct clients to a whole new level as we are aiming at new destinations and new visions!

We want to pay that extra bit of attention to detail and make every last one of your wishes come true, guide you along your holiday and try to be one step ahead preventing any mishaps along the way so you can relax and unwind as you deserve it.

Our offers are going to be better, bigger and bolder and break down new frontiers – no challenge is too big for us – we will always find a way. And even if we can’t you won’t know as we will make sure the proposed alternative is just as fantastic.

It is that sort of courage that presents itself in one of the team members of Travel by XO – Alessandra – your dedicated Travel Expert.



Alessandra has travelled the world living and working in three continents. Luckily for us she fell in love with Cape Town and decided to make this wonderful city her home. She joined the XO Africa team 3 years ago and works with clients of all nationalities seeing as she is fluent in English, German and Italian and speaks even a bit of French!

She is passionate about creating the perfect proposal for clients and is always willing to go the extra mile. Her creativity, determination and positive attitude are not only important aspects to the team but reflect in the process of making the dream holiday a reality.

Attention to detail and professionalism are the two pillars she bases her work on but being a new mommy has also taught her to know when to just breathe and relax.

Her little bundle of joy has given her more expertise in assisting you with your family related enquiries and concerns when it comes to travelling as she can relate to them all herself.

She loves anything that has to do with the culinary world – whether it’s cooking and healthy eating, restaurants or a good food related show or documentary. So it’s really no surprise she married a chef with whom she can share this interest. She will be able to point out the good spots you should visit during your stay in South Africa.

Another great passion of hers is languages and literature. Aside from the few mentioned above she has done language courses in Hebrew, Chinese and Spanish and previously studied Languages and Literature and worked as a Lifestyle Editor before switching to the field of Diplomacy.

According to her this New Year will see new trends and new challenges for tourism in South Africa – what she has prepared for you in this respect are new destinations and new themes for both activities and packages alike that you won’t be able to resist.

So what are you waiting for? Get in touch and let us share our vision with you!
