Hotel staff were very friendly food was excellent. Weather was a bit iffy. It rained or was overcast every day. Excursions were great, lots of fun and exciting. Overall I think I preferred the Costa Rician experience to the Mexican experience.

An Incredible Trip to India and Nepal

By: Bill-Patti

Reviewed on: 01 Apr 2014

This was another outstanding trip for us coordinated by Diane Crisman-Race. She maintained contact with us throughout the trip planning process and responded promptly to any questions or concerns which we had. Fortunately, there were no problems or delays during this trip; but we knew that she was available if an issue did arise. She has been an excellent partner as we have planned several trips over the past 10 years. We highly recommend the services of Diane Crisman-Race and the Valerie Wilson Travel office in Clinton, New Jersey.

Diane is a most effective and accommodating travel agent .  Recently we had to make quick changes in our travel plans and she was able to accommodate the request without hesitation.  She is extremely effective in understanding the client's needs and building travel plans around them.  I have highly recommended Diane to my friends without hesitation.

Diane was the perfect honeymoon planner! We had a wonderful time on our honeymoon thanks to Diane's meticulous planning and preparation. Thank you for all the attention to detail, communications with vendors, and special surprises you arranged! It was truly a trip of a lifetime. It was the perfect trip to kick off married life!

By: Clinton

We have worked with Diane before and she was great. In that trip and this trip, she took care of the details to the point we didn't have to worry about anything on our trips. Working with her on these trips truly make the vacation enjoyable. We would certainly work with her again for another significant vacation.

Trip to Ireland.

Very pleasant. Understood our interests and need to travel independently, then made excellent recommendations. She spaced our destinations to allow us ample time to enjoy sites along the way. Our hotel accommodations were just what we wanted and even more so.

Diane Crisman-Race the best

By: The Canoeists

Reviewed on: 19 Nov 2017

Diane is great to work with. She is always there with the answers to my questions which lead to more questions and she has the answers to those too. We have work long enough for her to understand our desires and handles the tiniest details to make our travels and adventures seamless and stress free every time. She thinks inside the box at first and there have been times she was thinking outside the box to find answers to our questions and sometimes dumb questions, always the professional person. I know there were times that we did not make her job easy and she took it in stride and was always polite and courtesy and professional and found and provided us the answers. I try to refer anyone that needs a travel agent/advisor to Diane. She goes up and beyond what you expect. You want the best, you get the best with Diane

Diane Crisman-Race - Priceless

By: Ellen

Reviewed on: 11 Dec 2017

Over the past several years Diane has consistently planned and executed much travel for me. This past trip was over 42 days and went around the world with two cruises and hotels in between. Diane never misses a detail and I am delighted to tell all of you about her skills as a travel professional. As you can imagine, a trip this long required lots of planning and much detail work. Over the entire trip everything that was planned worked perfectly. Car services were on time, hotels where early arrivals were requested, were ready, there were many complimentary additions in the hotels as a result of Virtuoso's membership. On a previous trip we had a cancelled flight in Japan. Diane worked on the week-end to get us another flight out of Tokyo. When we landed in Houston, it was flooding. Again, Diane stayed with me throughout the day and night to arrange an hotel and a flight home the following day. Yes, having Diane as my travel professional is priceless.
