About Me

Founder and Jet-setter, Binta Fondwi, caught the travel bug at the age of six and never looked back.

Binta’s passion for the travel industry was the catalyst to her leaving an established career in healthcare after 14 years. Now, she helps others to see and fall in love with the world just as she has.

She has visited dozens of destinations and used her experiences as inspiration for her travel writing and editing. Her work has been featured in Black Bride Magazine, LuxuryLaunches, and more.

Binta has always been the go-to girl for making every aspect of a trip feel like an adventure for her family and friends- and now, she shares her expertise with her clients.    

Why Elise?

The name Elise originated from one of my childhood tutors who couldn’t say my middle name (Elsie) to save his life. After many attempts, I got tired of correcting him & Elsie became Elise.  


Why Us?



Time is one asset you can’t earn back. So, why waste it scouring the internet for flights, excursions, and hotels? Leave the travel planning to an expert. Elise Travel provides personal, customized service before, during, and after every trip we plan. Whether you enjoy being involved in your vacation planning or prefer having someone you trust take the reins, we personalize our services to meet your desires.

Personalized Service.

You’re not just a name in our contact list, and you won’t be treated as one. We take the time to get to know who you are and what you truly want. We know how important leisure time is to hard working professionals and will work to maximize every minute of it.

Experiences Created Just For You.

Anyone can book a flight and find a hotel. But, not everyone can experience the best of what a destination truly has to offer. Luckily, we have the expertise you desire and know exactly how to construct the perfect trip, just for you. Whether you prefer a tranquil getaway or an adventure packed expedition, Elise Travel is your perfect partner.

Exclusive Access.

We truly believe you deserve the best when you travel. Our deep relationships with resort managers, tour operators, and sales managers, allow Elise Travel to provide exclusive pricing to our clients.  Additionally, we are able to offer you VIP benefits, amenities, access, and extras that are not available for the general public.
