My Background

Do you love exploring the outdoors? Are Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific on your bucket list? Do the American West and US National Parks intrigue you?

I am a Premier Aussie Expert, chosen by the Australian Tourism Board for my knowledge and passion of the destination, and the proud recipient of an Opal Award for marketing and promotions from Tourism Australia. Tourism New Zealand has given me Kiwi Expert golden designation.

As a Travel + Leisure Magazine’s A List Agent, I specialize in itineraries to the American West and National/State parks, where I travel as often as possible for my own “hit” of Mother Nature. If you want to experience Alaska and Canada…let me at it! How about Hawaii? I have travelled to all the islands many times. Photography is also a passion. I won first place in the prestigious Virtuoso Travel Agent Photo Contest with my photo of Monument Valley.

Other accolades I have received include Virtuoso Most Innovative Agent nominations and two platinum awards from Swain Destinations.

I look forward to hearing from you and making your dream trip a reality! BTW I am not just limited to the above destinations. I have the whole world in my hands!

Debbie put the entire trip together. She grasped the environment and style of vacation my wife and I were trying to achieve. I think that's the most difficult task and she did a terrific job understanding exactly what we were looking for. I will use Debbie again!

Debbie provided scheduled tour operations that were outside of our requested time frame and included more than we requested on one instance. Otherwise, she was extremely helpful and helped us with information needed to prepare for our trip.

Thanks to Debbie I had one of the best vacations of my life, and she made it so simple. I told her exactly what I wanted and she worked with me till we got it done. As a single lady traveler I found Debbie's expertise to be key to putting me in the best part of town considering things to do as well as my safety.

Thanks for the suggestion of the RIU Palace Tropical Bay in Negril, Jamaica. Our group of 21 had a great time. The rooms were very nice and the food was good. We ate at the buffet each night as we are a large group and could not get a reservation for the other restaurants. The theme at the buffet changed each night so we had a great variety to choose from. The staff assisted in helping us celebrate several birthdays with cake and singing.

I came to Debbie and explained to her I wanted to go on an escorted tour to Australia and I asked her if it was doable to book a trip leaving in a couple of weeks.  She said yes.  The next day she got back to me with an option.  Over the next week we communicated back and forth to come up with an itinerary that would meet my interests.  It was a short window of time, but she managed to get everything done to book the trip I wanted and make it happen for me.

With short notice Debbie planned a fabulous trip for us.

On our recent family trip to Oregon, we had the pleasure of working with Debbie Trevino of Hobson Travel. After talking to me about the types of activities we wanted to do, our budget and timeline, Debbie came up with a plan that fit all our criteria and exceeded our expectations. The guide service that she coordinated with in Klamath Falls was outstanding, and we were very comfortable in the accommodations. Debbie did an excellent job of keeping us updated when there was a tour time departure change and I truly felt that we could call her at any time if there were any problems along the way. I would definitely use Debbie in the future and would recommend her to my friends and family.

Debbie is an exceptional travel advisor and it's enjoyable and satisfying to work with her. She asks questions to gather information about our desires and expectations for the trip. After collecting information, she offers ideas and suggestions. After the discussion she then makes suggestions followed by more discussion and finally we book the trip. Debbie listens closely during our conversation and clarifies when necessary. She "reads" us well and has a delightful sense of humor. She makes planning our adventures enjoyable, easy and a breeze!

I don't think Debbie has been to Slovenia and Croatia. All rooms had double beds so an additional person could have joined our group with our single. Debbie said no rooms available but single already booked so room there. Info said both euros and kunas good, but Croatian stores wanted kunas. I'm general, trip was wonderful and I'd return to Slovenia and Croatia in a heartbeart!

I loved Croatia but felt Deborah did not do her homework. A friend of mine wanted to go on the trip. Deborah told me one of the rooms was a single and could NOT be changed. However, the single room was indeed a double room the ENTIRE trip and she could have gone!! Also, my son & daughter-in-law did not stay at hotels the first 3 nights and they they were charged the same price for the trip as I was. They had a 3 hr car ride from Slovenia to Croatia and she said it was the same cost. Really? They were very nice hotels! Otherwise, the trip was lovely. I would go again.

Debbie was very responsive to all of our questions during the initial trip planning, and before we knew it, she had a first draft itinerary created for a 3-week trip!
