My Background

Travel+Leisure "A-List Travel Agent" Awarded for my destination expertise in Italy + Small Ship Cruising.

Certified Travel Consultant. I have been booking journeys for clients all over the world for 30+ years. Singles, couples, families, as well as small groups with special interests. It gives me great pleasure to assist my clients in fulfilling their expectations and enriching their lives through travel. Custom planned travel itineraries and Small Ship Cruises are my vocation and Italy and Villa Rentals are among my specialties. I am well traveled in Europe, particularly Italy, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal and Greece. I've been on safari in Africa, danced the tango in Buenos Aires, strolled the Copacabana beaches, cycled in Chianti, romanced in Bora Bora, skied in Queenstown, enjoyed the cherry blossoms in Kyoto, floated the klongs in Bangkok, shopped til I dropped in Hong Kong, been dazzled in Dubai, have fished in Cabo, and crewed in Alaska.

Recent journeys include extensive sightseeing in South Africa...from Cape Town, Jo'burg, Durban, and onto a safari camp. A return visit to the Masai Mara in Kenya...return visits to the Cyclade islands of Myconos and Santorini, Ephesus on the Turkish coast via the Crystal Serenity. Sailing the coast of Spain, with visits to Barcelona, Valencia, Granada, and Malaga. Northern Spain..enjoying the beautiful Basque and Rioja regions..well known for their excellent wines and cuisine. A fascinating return visit to Naples, and dinner in Rome with Mayor Gianni Alemanno. A revisit to the Italian Lake District, particularly enjoying a stay on Lake Como before dropping down into Verona, Vicenza, Padua, and finally Venice staying at the favorite boutique Palazzo Stern on the Grand Canal.

My advice comes from years of experience, this is my passion, my avocation and I take it very seriously. My goal is to surpass your expectations each and every time.

Working with Colleen is always a pleasure. I have the utmost confidence that she finds the best trip for me because she knows my style and preferences and always keeps them in mind. She always manages to cross all the T's and dots all the I's, and gives the information to me in a easy to follow format.

Best Agent I've Ever Worked With by Far

By: SingleTraveler

Reviewed on: 09 Nov 2017

I've worked with Colleen on several trips over the last few years - all international travel where I'm not 100% comfortable booking things on my own. She has always been very friendly, knowledgeable and professional in our dealings. She has made suggestions that have enhanced my trip and/or saved me money. Can't beat that. I have confidence that any arrangements booked through Colleen will come off without a hitch.

Colleen is the Mary Poppins of Travel agents, she is 'practically perfect in every way'! She is a delight to work with, she is very organized, listens to us and takes quest from that on what to suggest, and she always responds to our queries. We know, with Colleen's help, very 't' has been crossed, every 'i' has its dot!
