My Background

I've been helping couples and families plan their vacations & honeymoons for over 16 years now. My goal is to match clients up with the right destination and property to meet their wants and needs based on the information I uncover during our Discover More conversation. My goal is to ensure this vacation is exactly what you hoped it would be. The destinations I have a passion for are: Hawaii, Caribbean Islands, Mexico, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, Australia & New Zealand, South Africa, Peru, Argentina, Italy & France just to list a few ! I love to help plan active, adventurous things to do in each destination so clients can experience the destination and all the fun things it has to offer and maybe step outside their comfort zone a little bit.

Deborah, who was recommended to me by my boss, did an outstanding job of organizing my two week vacation. This also goes for her assistant Hannah Dow. I gave her a clean sheet of paper and she came back w/ multiple excellent ideas. She was able to answer my questions via email/phone quickly, even last minute questions as I was headed to the airport. I would highly recommend her (and have since) to my friends and family.

The honeymoon that Deborah planned for us was amazing. She arranged for our flights, easy transport to and from the airport, and a week in beautiful Riviera Maya. No stone was left unturned and she had us covered every step of the way and planned our entire trip for us. All we had to do was say "yes!" and give the credit card info then enjoy the trip. Thank you for everything!

I have never used a travel agent before, but decided to give it a try in order to plan a trip for our family - my husband and me, our daughter and her husband, and our single adult son - to Scotland.  Deborah listened carefully to all my "wishes" and made it happen.  It was truly a trip that had something for everyone.  She worked in conjunction with a golf tour operator and together they came up with the perfect combination of lodging, restaurant suggestions, tour guides, tee times, auto and plane reservations, and sight seeing recommendations.  Every detail was spelled out.  I really appreciated that she made enough copies of the final itinerary that I could give one to each person.  They tried to ask me questions about upcoming events, but I trained them early to look at the itinerary for themselves!  We had a wonderful time.  Thank you, Deborah.

Deborah returned my emails quickly and really made me feel like my trip to Key West was top priority, even if she was busy working with other clients. I haven't traveled much within the last 5 years, and no matter what silly question I had, she made me feel comfortable about every aspect of this trip. We had a great time in Key West and are already thinking about where we're going next. And I know who I will be calling...so be ready Deborah:)

Deborah planned our vacation to the British Virgin Islands where we staye don Peter Island - this was an incredible trip and can't thank her enough! This was our second vacation planned by Deborah and there will be many more to come! She makes the details so easy and it's great to have someone work through everything for you - I especially like that Deborah has actually been to the places she has recommended to us. We capped off the trip with one final night in Puerto Rico (where we started our trip from) and we stayed at the Ritz-Carlton. This was a perfect top off to the trip - the hotel was great and the service couldn't have been better. Deborah is my top recommendation if anyone is looking for a travel expert to help plan that perfect vacation!

Wonderful Staff, Amazing Beach

By: LKemp


Reviewed on: 12 Mar 2015

The staff at Excellence was amazing.They were kind, happy and very attentive. The grounds of the resort are truly spectacular as if you are in a secluded jungle on the beach. Room selection is key. We stayed in the suite with the private rooftop pool. We either spent time on our rooftop or on the beach. There are several pools to choose from, if you want a more relaxed pool experience there is a more private one with a winding river like feel that is very peaceful. The main pool is much louder and crowded with music, swim up bar etc. The food was much better than expected given our previous stay at an all inclusive. It is not the best, but it still pretty good. The nightly entertainment reminded me of a cruise ship type vibe but you can easily partake or not partake in the nightly shows. The key to this resort would be room location. If you want a more private and quiet area stay in the buildings farthest away from the main pool and beach. I would definitely return to this resort.

I wanted "the" place for my wife's big "Five Oh" birthday. It was to be a surprise, and we had just come from a horrible experience with our 25th anniversary at a resort in the Caribbean that HAD BEEN "our" place. But, alas, that resort had become enamored with greed over experience, and had started allowing more and more corporate events. In fact, even though I had planned for OVER a YEAR every single minute of our visit on our anniversary, and had confirmed EVERY one, we were "bumped" several times from events, including our anniversary dinner on the beach that was supposed to have been the "climax" of the trip. Yet, we got screwed, because "OFFICEMAX" employees got to use "our" beach, and "our" areas at the times we wanted, even though I had made plans for us WELL before they were even calling for their visits. Were we hot? Yep. Never again... So, Deb to the rescue. She listened to my requirements...and more than met them. We had a heavenly experience at a place never experienced

Hawaiian trip

We had a great 10 days trip to Hawaii. My only complaint is that there was NO inflight entertainment offered on the flight from Charlotte to LAX and again on the return which were lengthy flights. We purchased first class tickets and I never thought this could even be possible. There were no television screens that I could see on the entire plane. I would have hoped that our agent would have known this when booking the flights and either told us about this ahead of time (so we could have been prepared) or booked us onto another flight. Not impressed with American Airlines. Deborah and her assistant had great follow up with me and I would use her again for future travel.

We just recently came back from a trip to Costa Rica where we visited two locations - one at the Volcano area and another on the coast. This was our third trip planned with Deborah and as always, it was amazing! We have been to Mexico, Peter Island in the BVI, and now Costa Rica and they have all been incredible trips. What I love about Deborah and her team is that all of the places that are recommended to us, they have personally been to. This is great because they discuss the details of the location with you from personal experience - there is nothing quite like a recommendation from someone that has actually been there. All three trips have been well planned out and went perfectly. It's nice to have all of the details worked out (transfers from airports, transportation to and from resorts, etc) in advance. When we plan a trip with Deborah, the planning is done up front and we get to focus on enjoyment of the trip! I can't wait to plan the next trip with Deborah and her team.

Great Recommendation

Deborah recommended Nayara Springs for our honeymoon destination and it did not disappoint!! The photos on the resorts DO NOT do it justice. We had a view of the Arenal Volcano from our own private villa. The staff at the resort go above and beyond to treat you like a special guest! The cooking class is a must and there are so many great excursions in the area. Deborah and Dara did a great job organizing EVERYTHING and I can't wait for them to plan our next trip!

I had never used a travel agent before, but since this was an important trip to our family, I decided to go with Deborah Barth as she had been recommended to us by a trusted friend.

The air reservations had to changed suddenly for several in our group - and since I was in the hospital with our family member, I was unable to do anything. Deborah handled our complicated, emergent airfare needs quickly. And did I mention Deborah did most of this on the weekend? I really don't know what i would have done without her.
