My Background

My love for new adventures and learning about other cultures, has influenced my personal travel for more than 25 years. I have been fortunate to have embraced the variety of cultures during the Olympic Games in London, celebrated ancient ancestors at the Obon Celebration in Kyoto, Japan and honored the fallen heroes in Normandy, France, during the 73rd Anniversary celebration of D-Day.

I enjoy planning special interest trips and uniquely, personalized itineraries. I take pride in listening to my clients and fulfilling their wishes. I believe it is the attention to detail that ensures special memories.

I look forward to learning about your desired travel experiences and helping you create lifelong memories with YOUR style of vacation.

Wonderful Windstar

By: Paul

Reviewed on: 19 Jul 2018

Donna was the perfect blend of advisor, coordinator, and expert. She provided excellent advice on travel, cabins, and excursions, listening to our desires and making the trip very special. I'd definitely work with Donna again and recommend her and Virtuoso to others.

Donna did an amazing job of tailoring a cruise around the Andalusian coast of Spain to help us celebrate several special occasions. She handled all the details - big & small - and accommodated our requests and questions with grace and patience. She even helped put together a last minute side trip to Porto after our cruise ended in Lisbon that was a highlight of our trip! We enjoyed the small ship cruise experience and service on Windstar.

Trip by Collette called the Heritage Tour.

Everything was booked through Donna and it was perfect. She handled all our questions and took care of our concerns. The Collette Tour was very good. The accommodations were first class, the food was fine including some great unusual meals in Colonial homes served by waiters wearing Colonial clothing. The local guides were very knowledgeable as well as the tour guide. I chose this tour because I wanted to get the feel of the American Revolution and I received it. She took heroic action when Delta s computers failed and took good care of us.

Awesome time in paradise

Donna planned a wonderful trip to Bora Bora for my husband's birthday. It was great not to have to worry about scheduling our flights/boat ride to our hotel. We were greeted by the hotel manager who acknowledged that we were Virtuoso guests and were given some great perks during our stay. Wonderful experience. Would highly recommend Donna to plan your vacation.

Staycation HEAVEN

By: Jo

We were so fortunate to have Donna as our travel agent for this last minute staycation booking. Everything was taken care of from the room reservation, early check in, spa appointments and dinner arrangements. Check-in was a breeze and when we walked into our room we were presented with a special treat from Donna! Added bonus! It was a busy weekend for travelers, yet Donna was able to assist with all our accommodations without any problems. There are so many perks working with Virtuoso that we didn't learn about until booking our weekend stay. We will definitely stick with Donna the agency going forward with all our travel plans. Thank you Donna for everything! Jo

It was a pleasure to work with Donna. Her attention to detail by listening to our needs to plan a memorable and enjoyable vacation for us was outstanding! The hotels were beautiful, comfortable and perfectly located for all our activities. The hotels served delicious breakfasts and had very friendly and accommodating staff. The drivers she arranged were timely and helpful. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and kind. We give Donna a 10/10 for her customer service! And we hope to work with Donna again in the future.
