My Background

I have long been enchanted with the world beyond my native Florida. Born of Cuban and French Canadian parents, I had an early fascination for diverse cultures - their history, customs and cuisines - which remains a constant source of travel inspiration. My first impressionable travel experience was a study abroad program in Spain which markedly revealed to me the charms of soaking in local life. I still love to balance classic sights with lesser known paths - both invariably leading to delicious and interesting local food!

Excellent Advice

Irene helped us save money and obtain extra upgrades we did not even know existed with our trip to New York over New Years. We will be using her again for our next trip that we are already planning. She had great advice on restaurants, hotels, shows, transportation, and put together a nice package that we want to repeat. Thank you Irene!

Irene took care of every aspect of our trip, and confirmed our bookings prior to our arrival. She is one of the most conscientious travel advisors we have ever dealt with and her attention to detail made everything go very smoothly. We would highly recommend her as a travel advisor.

Personable, returns emails or phone calls quickly. When she couldn't answer questions she was able to put me in touch with the right person.

Irene organized our 21st wedding anniversary trip to St. Lucia at Cap Maison. She arranged luxury hotel transfers to and from the airport, communicated with the hotel prior to our arrival making sure we would be taken care of, and secured a room upgrade...all within our travel budget! She will be organizing our trip next year to Ireland through Backroads. We have no doubt that Irene will plan another amazing trip for us! Thank you, Irene!

We just returned from another wonderful Holland America cruise, however, this one was was better! We booked it through Irene Quisenberry. She surprised us with a few great Ship Gifts and saw to it that every last detail was taken care of even though she herself was heading out on her own family vacation. We have recommended Irene to so many people within the last few months. She is an amazing agent that sees that every detail is not overlooked. We look forward to our June vacation to the DR where we will renew our vows. Thanks Irene!

My husband and I had a wonderful visit to the Ritz Carlton NYC - Central Park that was facilitated by Irene Quisenberry. Irene's thoughtful planning helped us with hotel and restaurant arrangements, as well as ground transportation. Upon check-in, we were upgraded to a park view room and surprised with a welcome gift of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. She checked in with us as the vacation date approached - always making us feel special and cared for. We are incredibly grateful to Irene for creating this special vacation for us!

Irene Q. was a DREAM to work with!

We are so thankful for the expertise and care which Irene showed us as we planned our trip to Costa Rica. We would have been lost without her guidance and her attention to detail, especially since this was the first time ALL of us were traveling internationally. I HIGHLY recommend Irene as an advisor and would 100% ask for her help the next time we plan a trip!

Attention to detail service

My family, consisting of my daughter and two teenagers, another daughter, her husband and their three month old son and myself, had the most fantastic vacation in Italy. The whole team worked together to make our trip appealing to everyone's varied interests and to accommodate my three month old grandson. A changing table, bed, diapers and wipes were for us at every hotel. We one room upgrade at every hotel. In Tuscany, we had a villa. Parents and baby had the guest house. We all enjoyed the pool, view, breakfast and dinner on the patio. Freshly baked croissants, bread, orange juice, and fruit were waiting for us every morning. All hotels were unique and excellent accommodations. My daughter and my teenage grandchildren had a palatial suite at the Hassler hotel. Our transportation was on time. Drivers and guides were knowledgeable and very helpful. Our tour Angels were available for us to call when needed and meet us at airports and train station. a trip of a lifetime. Thanks to all

Irene did a wonderful job helping me to choose the best hotels in Rome, Florence and Sorrento for my family. She also set up tours of the Vatican, Ancient Rome, Pompeii, Capri, and the Uffizi Gallery. Lastly, she arranged all of our train travel and transfers. Irene was always available to answer any questions and I would not hesitate to use her again and again!!

Great Trip

Irene worked with us to find just the right trip. We had been to Antarctica and were looking for a similar experience for the Northwest Passage. She found us a trip with the same company, but the ship had been booked by a separate travel organization and did not show on the ship's web page. Irene handled everything for us -- including booking the trip, insurance, and hotel in the origination city. She was always available and very enthusiastic about our trip.

First Class in New Zealand!

By: Michael Palermo

Reviewed on: 10 Jul 2017

My wife and I were planning an extended trip to New Zealand. Neither of us had been there nor did we have any friends that had visited New Zealand, so our information sources were limited. That turned out to be a blessing...we put the entire trip in Irene's capable hands and she created an incredible itinerary that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Everything Irene planned for us was absolutely first-class...from the private wine tours to the 5-star hotels to the private helicopter ride over Milford Sound (by the way, breathtaking!) detail was left unturned. We cannot thank Irene enough for planning this trip of a lifetime and would highly recommend her to anyone needing travel planning advisory assistance.

Paris - Lyon Getaway


Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2017

This was the second overseas trip this year that Irene helped us plan. She knocked it out of the park again! Irene is incredible to work with. She listens to her clients’ wants and needs then executes a perfectly laid out plan. Irene’s attention to detail and dedication does not end after the planning phase of a trip. She ensures that every aspect of your trip is as expected...even when the unexpected happens. For instance, the driver from our hotel in Paris dropped us at the wrong train station for our journey to Lyon. That caused us to miss our scheduled train for which Irene had scheduled a driver to pick us up upon arrival in Lyon. One text conversation to Irene and viola...problem solved! The limousine company was notified of the delay and was there to pick us up upon our late arrival to Lyon. I will continue to use Irene for all of our future travel plans and highly recommend that you do as well.

Irene booked an amazing trip for me and my family. Not only were the hotels top notch but it was the little details that she went out of her way to ensure happened for us. She remembered my daughter’s birthday was around the time of our trip and personally contacted both hotel managers to be sure they went all out to make her feel special- and they certainly did! I have never used a travel agent before but I certainly hope Irene will plan our next trip for us! We can’t wait!!
