  • While working with Adventure Nannies as a travel and touring nanny, I have been able to explore everywhere from the beautiful Highlands of Scotland, the ever-romantic Paris and islands throughout the Caribbean. Being able to get behind the scenes of so many talented and wonderful families has been indescribable.

  • Adventure Nannies diligently worked to get our family the ideal private educator for our family. Starting with a very thorough conversation on our needs to a collaborative process of writing out the job description, we felt like we had a very caring partner working towards the best interests of our family. Our placement counselor Elizabeth worked hard to find and vet very talented candidates for us to review. Along the way, she tuned the candidates based on our feedback and walked us through the offer process when we found the ideal candidate. Along the way, Adventure Nannies provided many helpful resources to help us navigate a very new and different path for us. We felt heard and taken care of and are so happy with the outcome.

  • What can I say… Thank you so much for being the wonderful, positive, high spirited, YOU! Thank-you for helping so much and being a fantastic inspiration to our grandchildren. What a wonderful summer vacation you have made it for them… and US! We couldn’t have pulled of the great summer of memories for them without you!

  • Our experience with Adventure Nannies has been nothing short of amazing. Their ideas for activities with the girls continue to impress us, and our girls absolutely love or nanny.  She has enriched our lives in many ways, and we hope our relationship with her continues long into the future. She has become a member or family, and we can’t wait for upcoming adventures with her.

  • Every evening our one year-old waddles to dinner while doctors and nurses and patients call out his name, and the sun sets behind the dragon-tooth Himalayas. For two comfortable Americans, the thought of raising our son on the grounds of a public hospital in rural Nepal seemed like it would be impossible. Until, thanks to Adventure Nannies, we met Eliza. Because of her, our son isn’t just surviving here – he’s thriving. And because we know he’s safe, and loved, and well cared-for even while we’re working, we’re thriving as well. We can’t fathom how our family would have made it this far without her.
    – Daniel Stiepleman, Nepal

  • “We were extremely satisfied with our experience working with the Adventure Nannies team. They were efficient, conscientious, thoughtful and meticulous in their search for a nanny for our touring family of three children. They maintained regular correspondence with us before, during and after we had employed her. We also found them incredibly helpful when we had to replace our nanny at short notice. They provide a really unique and specialized service and handle their clients and nannies with the utmost professionalism and discretion. We are very grateful to Adventure Nannies for matching our family with our very own “Mary Poppins.”
