My Background

Travel is a passion for me. From the time I was 5, I flew with my dad, who was a private pilot, my mom and sister on numerous adventures near and far.

Whether I'm luxuriating in a suite at Casa Gangotena in Quito, Ecuador or hiking and camping in the Mountains of Montana, I'm happy either way. Marrying a native Italian who regularly loves to return "home" has given me plenty of opportunity to escort small groups to Italy or wherever there's great food and wine! It's all about getting to know the locals and experiencing the culture....... in exciting cities and way off the beaten path.

As a travel advisor for 38+ years, I'm a member of the Virtuoso Adventure Travel and Family Communities, a Destination Specialist for Italy, Scotland, Costa Rica and Belize, a Sandals and Beaches Specialist, as well as an Un-Cruise Adventurist.

My travels have included hiking in the highlands of Peru and the Cloud Forest in Ecuador, the Cairngorms in Scotland, skiing all over North America and Austria, kayaking beside the glaciers in Alaska, floating in the Dead Sea of Israel, sailing in the Sea of Cortes, scuba diving the reefs in Turks and Caicos, swimming with sea turtles in Belize to hiking Haleakala Crater in Hawaii. I'd love to share my my passion for travel and adventure with you by collaborating with you on YOUR next journey.

Our Trip

By: Hawaii 2017

Reviewed on: 26 Aug 2017

Deb did a wonderful job for us starting many months before our departure date. She helped us find the excursions we wanted to take, the airline tickets we needed, and all the other "little things" that are often overlooked. It was a wonderful trip and we would not have changed a thing.

Deb is always great to work with. She knew everything about our cruise and held our hands all the way through the planning and pre-trip stages. She even took is out for cocktails a couple of weeks before we left to help us know what to take and what luggage to use. She is just great!

Highly Satisfied Traveler

Working with Deb of Rocky Mountain Travel was great. She was so friendly and knowledgeable about the Uncruise experience and what to expect and what to dress and plan for. And she was right on the button. All of our trip reservations were handled perfectly and her knowledge of the cities and recommendations worked out just fine. We packed just enough and had everything we needed. Should we go on another UnCruise Adventure we will definitely go through Deb.

It was a very enjoyable process. Since, for me, planning is an enjoyable part of the trip I found Deb’s help in getting my questions answered and getting timely answers indispensable. She was responsive to all my travel needs. I have already mentioned her to friends and certainly look forward to working with her again.

Loved Our Trip to Costa Rica!

By: Jane C

Reviewed on: 10 Apr 2019

Deb is wonderful to work with! Quick to respond, and take action if needed. I gave her an outline as to what our family wanted in terms of a Costa Rica vacation (and previously one in Mexico), and she just had that sixth sense of knowing who we were and planning the trip accordingly. Out of ten stars for Deb, I would give her 11!

We will definitely work again with Deb. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and gave us great advice not only about our cruise but about local hotels at each end, finding flights, and helping us with what to bring (and what not to bring).

Deb was very accommodating and helped us to choose a good fit for our vacation goals. We feel she worked to get us a good value for our money. She put all travel arrangements together in packet that was easy to carry with us for reference while on the road. We will definitely call on her to help with further travel plans!

Deb is a pleasure to work with. She listens to the traveler’s wishes and tries to turn them into reality. She is responsive to needs and that does not stop upon departure. Deb was available to us throughout our trip.

Costa Rica

By: Lance

Reviewed on: 19 Jul 2019

Deb was diligent in finding a trip to meet my requirements, and did a good job when delays cropped up, adapting as circumstances required. The ground arrangements came out flawlessly, and everyone on the ground in Costa Rica performed their part courteously and well. American Airlines proved a major disappointment with flight delays and cancellations and an unwillingness to help stranded and inconvenienced passangers

We had weather issues that caused our trip agenda to change! Deb handled the situation immediately and found us plane tickets, ground transportation and lodging within the hour! Absolutely marvelous trip and we owe it all to Deb Velli

I have worked with Deb twice on tours and several times for flights alone. She listens to what we want and provides great value. When I last traveled she was available when I needed her to answer questions and help me through tricky situations. She is knowledgeable and creative at finding the best rates. I will definitely work with her again and would highly recommend her to others.
