My Background

I've always loved traveling and sharing my experiences with friends. How fortunate I am to have a career that dovetails with my passion! Creating customized itineraries for people who truly want to explore the world and understand its people and cultures is extremely rewarding for me.

I make it a point to really listen to my clients, to understand the "why" for their trip. Since I've traveled extensively (to date: 50 countries and 47 states), I can leverage my destination knowledge and strong industry relationships to design detailed itineraries full of rich experiences. Anything's possible – from a Bar Mitzvah in an Alaskan Tlingit Indian Spirit House to special access to the Vasari Corridor in Florence. I've arranged it all. While I’m well-versed in all areas of the globe, I have particular expertise in travel to Africa and Italy. I’m also adept at planning multi-generational trips and those revolving around art history and the culinary arts, two special interests of mine.

It's extremely important to me that I deliver a high level of customer service.To do so, I've assembled a team of talented travel advisors – all with great experience and contacts – to assist me. Thus my clients, and the many friends that they refer to me, can expect personalized and responsive service.

I'm very involved in the travel industry. I participate in several advisory boards and am honored to have been twice nominated as one of five Most Admired Travel Advisors at Virtuoso Travel Week.

Whether you're looking to expand your horizons with a visit to a new-to-you continent or you’re a seasoned traveler wanting to push the envelope and explore off-the-beaten-path destinations, I enthusiastically look forward to working with you.

We just completed a complicated trip for 10 family members to Paris and Burgundy. Debbie arranged everything, and every detail worked out perfectly. Debbie listens well, and is very responsive. In addition with her years of experience she had developed an amazing list of contacts and suppliers that allow her to craft a travel experience you just cannot achieve by planning the trip on your own.

Her recommendations were excellent; she took care of all details; manages changes well. I had the same experience this time with Jamo. I highly recommend her.

Debbie and her team recently planned a ten day trip to Ireland for us. This is one of about a dozen trips she has planned for us - and as usual, it was a wonderful trip. In addition to very special hotels, and the much appreciated Virtuoso amenities, Debbie gave us some great suggestions on sites to see along the way, and the best locations to visit.

Well, Italy was our 3rd trip with Debbie after trips to France and Hawaii.  All 3 have been exceptional.  What separates her from the rest?  First, she listens.  Second, she develops a plan tailored to our taste.  Third, she takes care of every detail.  The accommodations?  Always first class. - we have always been centrally located in American friendly, English speaking hotels that are just exquisite, charming and friendly.  The tours?  Guides for private tours that give access and brilliant insights to sights, monuments, museums, etc. that simply are not available to everyone. The transportation?  Always minimizing downtime and logistical headaches by making it simple, accurate and perfectly suited.  Whether flights, lay-overs, limo transportation or car rentals - always spot on to relive what could otherwise be 'tense' moments. To underscore our complete confidence, we like to say, "In Debbie, we trust"...

Debbie handled our honeymoon trip to Pairs and did a great job. We were slated to stay at the George V for a few nights then change to another, less expensive hotel. My wife didn't like the second hotel as much and we called Debbie that day. She immediately called the other hotel and arrange an even better deal for us for the remainder of the trip (5 days). This felt good-to have someone taking care of us on our special vacation. Debbie is seasoned, straight forward and matter of fact. She spent enough time with me over the phone getting to know our goals of the trip and our taste. I would use her services again for another international trip. Bon Voyage!

Debbie ( and Tracy) are consummate advisors on all things travel. We have done many trips with them over the past decade. Knowing that they have reviewed all details takes the burden of planning away from me. Instead, I get to dream about the trips and then enjoy the adventure!

We have been working with Deborah Bush for many years now. The expeditions and trips that she has organized have all been epic in their own ways. Some relaxing and luxurious, some encompassing high adventure. Each extremely well planned out and executed. We as a family wholeheartedly have and will continue to recommend Deborah to anyone with a deep passion for travel. The Walker Family
