My Background

About me………… I’m originally from New York, I’m married, and I have two grown children. I’m friendly, outgoing, detail oriented and organized; all of which contributes to my success as a travel advisor. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people and exploring new destinations which is why I pursued a career in travel. Anyone who knows me, knows I hate to fly but it doesn’t stop me from seeing the world!

I have firsthand experience in the wonders of Italy, the intrigue of Greece, the gentleness of Portugal, the grandeur of England, France, Spain, Monaco, Austria, and more. I’ve cruised the Mediterranean, The Sea of Cortez and the Caribbean. In addition to my credential as a luxury travel advisor, I’m a graduate of the NextGen Virtuoso Boot camp and a member of VAST. I love wowing my clients by adding a special, personal touch to their itineraries; such as a visit to a school in Africa, or an Alpine Lake picnic via sea plane in Whistler, a class in gladiator school in Rome or a lesson on how to wear a kimono in Japan. Having a father from Calabria and a mother from Naples, I’m an Italy expert. From Lake Como to the Amalfi Coast my extensive knowledge and contacts will help me to plan your trip to Italia!

When I came to Diana and said I wanted to see Turkey, she recommend I see it "her way." From transfers to hotels to guides, etc., everything was top-notch. And although I had reservations about cost before the trip commenced, I can not imagine seeing Turkey any other way. Thank you, Diana, for your wisdom and expertise!

Very accommodating to our needs and wishes; we had a wonderful trip and for the most part all went well. The only glitch was that was that the over-seas company that did our itinerary did not take into account that we would be crossing the international date line. Our poor guide Putu, showed up the day before we arrived and waited around the airport for 3 hours; the hotel also was expecting us a day earlier. It did not inconvenience us at all, but I felt bad none the less.

Diana has planned two trips for me and my fanily. One to Hawaii and one to Cancun. Both of theses trips would be on my top five highlights of my life.From start to finish she was there to make it the absolute best. When I say she really cares I mean it!!!! I followed each one of her recconmendations to the tee and was glad I did. I can't say enough about her and I will never take a trip without her planning it for me.

Diana put together a 16 day trip to Italy for us. She understood what we were looking for and what was important. She put together everything from hotels, transfers, train tickets, special tours, etc. to make it quite memorable. It was an amazing trip and she helped make it even more special with her recommendations that enhanced the trip. She loves what she does and she does it well! I would recommend her for all your travel needs.

Bumped into Europe

By: CMJEurope

Hi Diana, First of all thank you for all you did at the last minute after Sea Dreams bumped us from the cruise. Sea Dreams decision days before departure was unexpected. I understand decisions have to be made but I'm not at all pleased with either of their options. Your alternate plan was great. Specifically, everything was great except for the two tour guides we received. Nic in Montenegro was non stop talk. Extremely annoying and dramatic. He experienced no self control. Our Vatican guide, Leonardo, was an art history buff who wanted to tell us instead of show us. Our first 50 minutes he spoke to us with book in hand standing on a patio. 1,000+ people walked by us. We just made it into the Sistine Chapel before closing and he had to convince a guard to let us into St. Basilica church. In this 3 hour tour, the two highlights of the Vatican were rushed because this guy wouldn't shut up and walk. Even when we repeatedly requested him to do so.

Sure Knows Her Stuff!!

We have used Diana on previous trips and she has always done a great job. She was immensely helpful in planning our trip to Amsterdam and South Africa which turned out to be last minute. We were originally planning on a 2017 trip but decided in June to go in Aug. and Sept. of this year. She jumped in with both feet and planned an incredible trip! Recommended excellent accommodations, activities and sites. Set up our local travel (we took care of our international airfare) which was a huge relief. All we did was show up and there was always someone to meet us as soon as we stepped off the plane. Guides were excellent...knowledgeable and personable. Had a great time making cheese at a private farm in Zaanse Schans, The Netherlands! The South Africa stint of the trip was incredible. Our accommodations were amazing! She knows what we like and suggested only places she knew we would consider. Animals, food, game rangers/trackers...everything was amazing! Highly recommend Diana!

Diana is super. Helpful, friendly and generally great.

Diana was the person who directed us to Crystal Cruise. I had always done Princess. I have now been spoiled. Our cruise was wonderful! The food, service, ambience was all perfect. I really enjoy the size of the ship as compared to the mega ships. And the cost was good. I will continue to look for other Crystal Cruises in the future.

If you're looking for help finding top notch accommodations that will make your trip unforgettable, go with Diana. If you just want a hostel with shared bath and no a/c, there are plenty of travel books to choose from.

On a recent trip, I was concerned that my airline had messed up my return reservation following my outbound check-in. Diana confirmed my return flights and gave me piece of mind that all would be okay. Thanks, Diana!

Eating and drinking through the salons of Northern Italy and Southern France

By: Walt Fey

Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2017

Diana put together an excellent trip for my wife and I and another couple. We have an active lifestyle, though we do like to drink wine at lunch, and there was just the right amount of planned and unplanned activities. Diana knows her stuff and we got a great sampler of a variety of towns, cities and villages in the region. We did have a snafu about our rental car drop off fee which kept surprising us by getting higher and higher and I would give Diana a 'fair' rating on handling that situation. But, other than that, very happy overall with our trip.
