About

Le Faiseur de Rêves, Ltd. (LFDR) is a global holding company that incorporates multiple verticals in the experiential travel & event design space.
OUR LEGACY

Founder Gregory Patrick established Tours of Enchantment in 1988 and was the first in the world to merge luxury hotel services within private estate settings, allowing control over the entire guest experience.

For over thirty years, Patrick has honed his craft as an experiential artist offering highly personalized experiences. In 2017, the company began its global expansion and was rebranded as DreamMaker®. After three decades of setting new benchmarks in creative travel, Gregory launched Experientiality®, a complementary B2C brand catering to the same UHNW clientele.

DreamMaker® now serves the B2B market offering “never-to-repeat” designs through its strategic marketing partnerships. This collaboration helps its partners differentiate their luxury offerings in the oft-crowded top of the market, a domain DreamMaker® knows well.

Experientiality® offers personalized experiences that can be repeated, but whose level of creativity, attention to detail and personalization remain unmatched.

The two brands together shape the House of DreamMaker, having earned the status of a true Design House. Gregory Patrick (a.k.a. The DreamMaker) is to the House of DreamMaker as Valentino Garavani is to the House of Valentino.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

At the House of DreamMaker, we believe that memories of one’s best-cherished experiences become their favorite stories. We are entirely committed to guaranteeing the satisfaction of, not only our guests but our staff, friends, family, and as importantly, ourselves as individuals. Every experience is a chapter to be added to the story– a promise we strive to keep in each and every experience we create. It’s in the House of DreamMaker’s DNA to deliver authentic experiential designs at every turn of the page.

OUR VISION OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The House of DreamMaker is more than a house of brands dedicated to authentic travel and event experiences. We are a group of individuals committed to building profit with purpose. We see the world as our stage filled with endless possibilities – and through our creative experiences, we relish the opportunity to help and entertain children across the oceans.

Every client’s trip design includes the necessary resources to help the children we intend to encounter. We make a profit designing and delivering those children’s experiences, which in itself guarantees sustainability in our charitable efforts globally.

EXPERIENTIAL GIVING

It is our commitment to give back in every country we explore. The DreamMaker has been blessed to visit many of the world’s SOS orphanages, and despite their challenges, they receive constant sustenance, support, education and love.
We’re committed to share the experiences and memories through that which entertained our guests; the music, the dances, the horse rides, the falcons, the magic – every child is entitled to such joyous moments.

Without the UHNW community we serve, it would be challenging to offer the less fortunate those little things we all treasured as children; gifts that delight, that giant swirl of cotton candy, or anything that gives a feeling of nostalgia when reminiscing about their childhood

OUR MISSION

Creating first-mover boutiques that amaze our clients and materialize their dreams when immersed in any of our experiential offerings

Businesses

As a group of operating companies under the leadership of LFDR, Ltd., we pride ourselves in the creative design and execution while offering one-of-a-kind differentiators in the increasingly commoditized world of luxury services

OPERATING COMPANIES

DreamShare® is the first branded collection of private trophy homes whose ownership is shared amongst several families; the perfect hybrid of the ultimate Boutique Hotel, Residence & Destination Club models. DreamShare® goes far beyond the simulated boutique hotel (or private villa) experience whilst eliminating most of the industry’s pain points.

Its luxurious all-inclusive features such as ultra-fine dining, unlimited use of a supercar/coach and spa therapists redefine the boutique hotel value proposition.

DreamLife® is a lifestyle management offering which complements our sister brands. It includes cost-sharing for the UHNW who love to indulge in life’s ultimate luxuries, but at a fraction of the cost. At its core, it’s “collaborative consumption” for the ultra-wealthy.

Tours of Enchantment is our legacy brand, founded by Gregory Patrick in 1988, pioneering the rental of private estates some 30 years prior to its booming growth today. In our quest to scale globally, Tours of Enchantment split into DreamMaker® and Experientiality®, serving the B2B and B2C markets respectively.

Experientiality® is a “ready-to-wear” designer travel line ~ unforgettable vacations and events executed with flawless precision by a traveling butler in concert with our 24-hour command center.

Experientiality® is designed to scale with personalized experiences that may be repeated yet remain without peer due to our creativity, attention to detail and personalized design.

DreamLeap is the first mover in the experiential travel and event space, combining Broadway Theater, Cinematographic Visual Effects, Augmented Reality and Projection Mapping, all of which shall engross them in an illusion that has the family spellbound. It’s Disneyland for eight children at a time.

A new venture inspired by a long history! 32 years ago, we cut our teeth in the hospitality game by creating the first hosted million dollar super coaches in the United States, with tuxedo clad servers, entertainers and full dining service. DreamSuite takes it to another level offering shared ownership of multiple super coaches in Europe, Australia and the Americas with a rolling hotel suite accompanied by a mobile entourage of including a Physician, Butler, Chef, Nanny, Tutor, Video Producer and Mechanic.
