Paul Irvine

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT South America

Eleven years ago, Paul Irvine’s love affair with Brazil led him to leave his career in London’s financial industry and open Dehouche Travel in Rio de Janeiro. Today, with a second office in Buenos Aires, the company handles custom travel arrangements to most of South America. Paul is most passionate about planning vibrant itineraries, incorporating as much nature, sea, and culture as possible. He’s constantly traveling around the continent, digging up intel on fabulous new hotels, hidden beaches, and wilderness adventures, and checking in with his carefully chosen team of guides, drivers (cars and speedboats), and private-jet pilots. His relationships at the hottest hotels often translate to upgrades and gifts for his clients. And though Paul likes to leave some flexibility in his itineraries to allow for the spontaneous moments that are often a trip’s most memorable, his staff is also on hand 24 hours a day to attend to any client’s need. Paul was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013.
