My Background

My love for travel started at a very young age when I would travel to Colombia, South America when I was a little girl. There was something about the excitement of being in an airport knowing that I would soon be taken to a place very different than what I was used to. Since then, the intrigue of foreign destinations and cultures has always been a fascination of mine. I don't just want to say that I went somewhere, but to say that I actually experienced it! Whether it be beach vacations, ski vacations, adventure vacations, or cultural vacations.....each one is amazing and unique in it's own way. And not only is each destination different, but how each traveler wants to experience it is different. I will listen and help you plan your perfect vacation based on your needs to make it the most memorable trip ever!

Beyond Expectations

By: Greg


Reviewed on: 10 Feb 2015

My wife and I just enjoyed a fabulous honeymoon Dyane arranged for us. Prior to the trip Dyane was easy to work with and quickly found us options that were exactly what we asked for and within our budget. She provided us insightful information to help us land at the resort that was most appropriate for us, something we did not regret upon arrival when we had the chance to see the other resorts firsthand. She provided us documents and a detailed itinerary that made our distant travel (3 flights and a boat) seamless and comfortable. The package Dyane arranged for us was the envy of other honeymooners at the resort as we had the best bungalow location and additional perks such as an island tour that turned out to be another highlight of the trip. Overall it was the trip of our lifetime made all the much better from the help and guidance provided to us by Dyane. No regrets whatsoever!

Poor guide

By: Oz travellers


Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2015

Our guide of the Normandy beaches was very knowlageable but very rude and discourteous. He made no effort to even call us by name, he swore many times whilst driving and was rude and discourteous to us and to other tourists. He was quite elderly and although this should be no barrier in itself he was very inflexible. Accommodation was extremely good. Our tour of the Loire Valley was excellent with a very good guide and drivers. Accommodation and food was excellent.

She was very helpful in arranging our private transfers and tours. It was a little difficult communicating due to her part time status but we got everything booked in time despite this.

One of the best agents i’ve Worked with

By: Blessed


Reviewed on: 08 Aug 2018

Dyane was fantastic to work with! She helped plan our cruise for 17 family members. Nine were ages 18-3 and eight adults. She worked with my husband and myself mostly because we were treating. Dyane was always in contact and helped us to book the best cruise/ship for our needs. We worked together for a year to plan. Dyane answered questions from each of us via email or phone, and contacted us regarding insurance needs and onboard credits. We also met at the office, and she often answered my questions when off from work at the office. We couldn’t have had this great experience without her!

Dyane has changed our way of travel. My husband was not a traveler and now we travel more than 10 times a year. I recommend Dyane to everyone I know because what she does is plain magic.
