My Background

There are about 196 countries on Earth at Present, and I’ve been blessed enough to visit over 110 of them. It’s really hard to pinpoint my favorites, but some of the top ones are in Africa, Antarctica, Asia, India, The South Pacific (specifically Micronesia) and Papua New Guinea. The latter one is still one of my most memorable trips I’ve ever taken.

I can arrange travel experiences pretty much all over the world, although I tend to do more with exotic locations; in the past few months, I’ve been getting more South Pacific, India and Africa inquiries. I’m based in San Francisco and have been doing this for 20 years.

I work in a Collaborative Planning situation with most clients, trying to determine the best match for desired travel experiences. I have worked recently with many small-group (friends and family) and multi-generational family travel as well. It’s interesting and rewarding for me to work with all ages.

This trip was very last minute on our part, probably gave Tom & DeRose our plans/expectations about 4-6 weeks before departure. We needed to get away after dealing with an unexpected death in the family. In the weeks preceding our departure & in the final planning/booking stages Tom himself was on holiday. We didn't miss a beat. Signed, sealed, delivered. Once in Colombia & Panama, we did experience some serious difficulties & fumbles by the local tour operators, but Tom & DeRose were available by email & phone to mitigate/resolve the problems. Despite the frustrating speed bumps,  which were NOT  Tom's or DeRose's responsibility/fault, we had a wonderful trip. Tom and DeRose is currently planning our next trip to occur in December.

Tom and Reggie did a wonderful job planning our 25th Anniversary trip to Hawaii. I was recommended to Tom by a friend and colleague who absolutely raved about him. From the first conversation I knew he was the real deal. Tom took time to find out what was important to us in order to plan the perfect trip. Reggie was responsive and very nice to work with as well. I will definitely use De Rose Travel for all of our travel needs!

We recently visited Puerto Rico and used De Rose Travel for this vacation.My wife and I had a Wonderful time at the Gran Malia Resort. The package also included a personal butler,  which made the trip even more memorable since it was a vacation for my wife's birthday.The staff at the resort were wonderful very attentive and took care of every little detail, which made it all the more special. I would definitely recommend De Rose travel to anyone. Thank you Tom and his Team.                                                               Frankie
