Multi-Generation, Groups, River Cruising & Safaris

As a seasoned traveler and travel coordinator, travel has been my greatest source of education, entertainment and happiness.  It also serves as a meaningful legacy to my grand kids when I include them in my adventures whether by photos or trips. If I had just one trip to take with my family, it would definitely be an African Safari.   It's an amazing, magical experience and you will never forget its lasting impact.

Group and Multi-Generation Travel.  I've helped arrange trips for multi-generations and groups.  It provides an awesome memory for the entire family and/or group.  Taking care of all the logistics of air, transfers, hotels, land and cruises.  It's vital to keep everyone informed, making sure everyone's needs are met while they travel.  

As a gourmet cook and wine aficionado, I particularly enjoy booking group tours for my fellow foodies. Whether you fancy a cooking class in France or a vineyard hopping through Tuscany, I can’t wait to help you plan a customized food and wine tour. If your desire is to go to Australia or New Zealand, I have been certified as a Australian and New Zealand expert.

I also love booking river cruises. This intimate, relaxing and all-inclusive mode of travel includes thrilling excursions to fairytale castles and half-timbered villages all while feasting on gourmet dining.  You can cruise domestically in the USA, travel throughout Europe or new to river cruising is Egypt, Viet Nam and Cambodia.  You will not be disappointed!

Prior to joining the travel industry twelve years ago, I worked in mortgage banking and event planning. My sales experience, people skills, and attention to detail continue to serve me well in my career as a travel agent.

St. Augustine said, “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.” I look forward to helping you add the next chapter to your travel memoirs!

Wonderful Cruise through the Panama Canal
Wonderful Cruise through the Panama Canal

Hawaii is one of my favorite places to relax and recharge.  I'm familiar with all the Islands, but my favorite places is Kauai on the North Shore.  It's quite, peaceful with many solitude activities, such as hiking, swimming, kayaking and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere.

My Reviews

Highly recommend using Dianne to plan your trips
Working with Dianne was such a pleasure! Leading up to our family trip, we had everything we needed electronically, and could print out anything we needed well ahead of time. She did a great job keeping us on time with the various things we would need for our trip to Costa Rica - such as passports (and also let us know what we don't need to travel there - such as shots). She also made it super easy to pack with a great list of suggestions.

From the minute we were on the ground in the bus going to our first resort, her team on the ground in Costa Rica was in contact and easily accessible. We really enjoyed the convenience of having everything booked and the rides pre-arranged for all of our fantastic outings. Everyone was on time and we had a blast on every adventure. Everyone she connected us with were super friendly and helpful (even with our mangled Spanish).

We also had such a great variety of memorable things to do that fit the tastes of myself and my two older kids.

Inventive, Personal, and Incredibly Proactive
Thoroughly detailed and inventive! Gave us ideas of things we would have never known about in the first place, such as ways to dine with real Parisians while in France, the most protective travel insurance when I went to the World Cup in Brazil, and off-the-beaten path attractions which aren't swarmed with tourists. We actually had to cancel our last trip to the UK because of Covid, and the insurance she set us up with (cancel anytime for any reason) paid out perfectly. I will never try to book a foreign vacation or cruise on my own again! I'd recommend Dianne to anyone.
