-- Travel Services --
In early 2023 I opened my own company!
Together with my long-time friend and colleague Manu, we opened the Italy-based travel company called WILD SAGE (<-- click on that link to go to our web page)

Tour with Wild Sage
With 25 years of experience organizing and guiding tours throughout Europe, Claire and her colleague Manu created Wild Sage to help you design your dream vacation. It can be active (or not), with a focus on whatever you like to do: food & wine, art & history, spas & wellness, artisans and local crafts, or total relax. It's your trip, you make the rules!
I've lived in the city of Florence for over 20 years so know all of the best places to hike and bike, both near and far. I can also take you on an informed city walk where we can see the main sites and sample the local food. Day tours or multi-day tours as per your schedule.
Online Travel Consulting
Sometimes you don't need a guide but you'd love some guidance in setting up your next trip. I can schedule a 30- or 60-minute online consulting session where I answer your specific travel questions. You can do it from home in your pyjamas, so what's easier than that??
Prints & Photographs
Many of you have asked over the years if I sold my photographs (in print form or in full-size JPG), well now I do! If you see anything you'd like to own and hang on your wall just let me know and we'll set up an online sale. One day I'll get around to posting my favorites here so you can see what's available. Stay tuned!
