My Background

Travel changes people. I’m energized by creating life-transforming experiences for my clients and enjoy the entire process of trip planning, from conception to revision to final product.

Having traveled extensively around the world, I’ve made great connections in destinations such as Italy, the Caribbean, and Africa. Most recently I’ve explored the Lake area of Italy, Alaska, Iceland, the Dominican Republic, Barcelona, Chile, and Paris.

On my travels, I’m constantly looking for that perfect experience for my clients, from seeing the Big Five in Tanzania and Botswana to taking amazing cooking classes in Florence.

I focus on planning customized itineraries, honeymoons, and experiential family travels, from quick getaways to large multi-generational adventures.

I especially enjoy hearing feedback from my clients upon their return so that we can begin planning their next dream trip.

Ann was extremely helpful when planning our trip.  We could not have done it without her!  She took all of our needs into consideration to help us plan the trip of a lifetime without breaking our budget.

Great Trip to Puerto Rico

Ann Calve recently planned a trip for my Mom, sister-in-law and me to spend a few days in Puerto Rico to get away from the winter weather in the northeast.  We all wanted to stay at the Wyndham Rio Mar even though it is currently undergoing renovations.  Rates were very reasonable for a property on the beach with two beautiful pools and a casino -- they even hosted a Super Bowl party.  The included breakfast (thanks to it being a Virtuoso property) is one of the best at any hotel I have visited.  Had a great time and looking forward to returning next year.  Thanks, Ann!!

Ann arranged a fabulous "girl's trip" for 5 of us to go to the Cuisinart in Anguilla. Ann set up our transfers and spa treatments and gifts in the room. She got us an upgrade to the rooms and breakfast was included. It was so much fun we are going back next year!

Best there is!

Ann is a wonderful travel agent, both as someone who comes up with great ideas and then makes the trip work perfectly from a logistical point of view.  She anticipates problems with things like airline cancellations and is three steps ahead, proposing solutions and making sure your trip happens as planned.  I've been working with her for years, and have referred numerous family members and friends to her -- all of whom continue to call her!  She's also just a really nice person to work with.  I can't recommend her highly enough.

Ann is the the best. Always so helpful with very quick results at any time of the day that I email her. She remembers the kinds of things that I like and has always done a great job for me. I feel like she goes out of her way for me and wants to make sure that everything is in order for me, which it always is!

We contacted Ann for recommendations on a Mother-Daughter Spring trip.  She got back to us with several wonderful options.  We decided on a trip to Anguilla and it was a wonderful trip to take at a very special time in our lives.  We have Ann to thank for great times and great memories!!!

Ann did a great job of getting my daughter to Capetown, South Africa on VERY short notice. She is our "go-to" person for ideas, execution and on-the-ground relationships.
