My Background

I have spent over 30 years in the travel industry, 12 of those with the Brownell team. I have specialized for many years in Africa, Southeast Asia, India, and France. I have a particular love for Paris, as I lived there every summer for 10 years on L'Isle St. Louis. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a BBA degree in Marketing.

I am passionate about travel and love the excitement of sharing my personal experiences—whether that is a restaurant recommendation, activity suggestion, or even sharing her favorite places to shop. I aim to give every client an unforgettable experience for good value. I want my clients to have insider, private, and out of the ordinary travel experiences that will form memories of a lifetime.

Highly recommended - Catherine was superb!

By: CB

Reviewed on: 01 Oct 2013

Catherine did a great job organising our Hong Kong visit. She spent a lot of time working out our requirements. We stayed at the Mandarin - enjoying a complementary upgrade. My only complaint was that Mandarin charges for WiFi - especially as one can enjoy free WiFi throughout much of HK!! Mandarin needs to wake up that charging for WiFi is going to loose them business!

Catherine just recently planned our Honeymoon to Italy. Simply put, she did an incredible job! We spent time in Rome, Capri and Positano and we were treated like VIP everywhere we went. She planned guided tours in each location as well as transportation. All of the guides and drivers were on time and extremely nice. Additionally, Catherine picked amazing Hotels at each location that fit in our price range without sacrificing quality or service. Last but not least, we unfortunately missed our connecting flight on our way home and ended up being stuck in Paris for night. With one quick phone to our travel advisor Catherine, she was able to set us up with a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of the city and a diving tour of Paris. It ended up being a highlight of our trip! From the planning stages, hotels, restaurants, sites and tours, Catherine planned us a Honeymoon we will never forget! I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to take a unique unforgettable trip!

We have two children, ages 10 and 7, and planning a two week trip to Italy seemed somewhat daunting to me and my wife. Catherine worked tirelessly for months, patiently answering all of our questions, until we found the right combination for the adults and the kids. We had a fabulous experience on our trip. Our in-country agency was great, helping us though at every step. Catherine was so excited and anxious to hear about our trip when we returned. We will definitely be using Catherine for our next excursion.

Our Virtuoso trip planned by Catherine Whitworth and the IC Bellagio team in Italy was everything we dreamed it would be. Catherine is a highly talented professional who is most knowledgeable and attentive to the interests of her clients. We thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She really removed the stress of trip-planning and allowed us the opportunity to enjoy the fun aspects of getting ready to visit Italy. While we were on our trip, everything went so smoothly. We really relaxed and absorbed the culture and lifestyle of the Italian people! We highly recommend Catherine and will be using her again very soon! Our tour guides and drivers in Italy were extremely reliable, pleasant, and full of great information and tips. We were especially thrilled with Angela in Rome, Attilio in Tuscany, and Rita at Lake Como! Our guide in Florence, Tonya, was terrific! Her knowledge of art history was amazing and a real education for us! Many thanks to all who worked on the trip!

Catherine Plans the Perfect High End Trip

By: Travel Mom

Reviewed on: 30 Dec 2019

We just show up and enjoy the trip. Catherine plans everything down to the smallest details. And goes above and beyond to make the trip run smoothly. Even when I fall and brake my shoulder. Every hotel had a next of pillows for me thanks to Catherine. We had the best Christmas Market trip ever! We saw at least 35 Christmas markets and 20 huge pyramid nativities and a double decker carousel. We drank Gluhwein after Gluhwein. And had fine chocolate after fine chocolate! It was absolutely an enchanting trip. Our favorite hotel was a small luxury hotel in Heidelberg that was adorable and offered views across the river of the huge castle in Heidelberg that was reconstructed in 1559-1606. At night the castle lights up with am amber glow. We had the perfect balance between time on our own and time with wonderful tour guides. We stayed in super deluxe old hotels and super deluxe modern hotels. We loved taking trains across Germany and having a driver there whenever we needed a car.

We stayed at the W and Ritz Carlton in Santiago de Chile. As always Catherine went out of her way to make sure everything was taken care. We received an upgrade and a bottle of wine with a personal note from Catherine. This was very much appreciated!

Catherine and Charleen were so easy to work with. I decided to upgrade my room at the last minute and they took care of it immediately. I would definitely work with them again! Our trip was effortless and truly a vacation. I loved the amenities we got for booking with them, too.

Disney Cruise

Reviewed on: 20 Mar 2020

Our Spring Break trip, which consisted of everything Disney, was planned by Catherine Denham, colleague of Catherine Whitworth's. We contacted C. Denham for her help later than ideal when booking a Disney Cruise. Most everything was booked, but she worked her magic and got us an incredible deal on a verandah room for less than what I saw online. She took care of our Epcot tickets, & sent us all the necessary information & links on getting passports for our children, since we were traveling out of the country. Leading up the trip, Catherine kept us informed with breaking news & information on how COVID-19 was affecting travel. She called us at 6:30 am the day we were to board our cruise, telling us new guidelines from the CDC were released overnight & it was specific to all cruise travel. Catherine's attention to detail while planning, her valuable input when weighing options, & her genuine concern for us was priceless. She will forever be our go to contact for travel!
