City Tripping in Sydney, Australia

So what's it like to travel Down Under for a visit to one of the most vibrating cities in the world: Sydney, Australia?

As I suffer from jetlag a lot, I was quite surprised to find out I felt really energetic and rested when I arrived after a 15-hour flight from LAX. I... Read more from my City Tripping in Sydney, Australia story.

Island hopping in Hawaii

The Hawaiian islands were on my list to visit for a long time, and when I finally arrived in Honolulu, I was wondering why I hadn't visited sooner! The island breeze that greeted me at the airport was so refreshing that it put me on "island time" from the moment I... Read more from my Island hopping in Hawaii story.

Paul Gauguin Luxury Cruise from Tahiti

Ia ora na! My boyfriend and I recently experienced the paradise of French Polynesia in an entirely different way than back in December 2018: this time, we stayed in what we like to call a "floating over water bungalow" called the Paul Gauguin cruise ship! Not having to worry about food and drink... Read more from my Paul Gauguin Luxury Cruise from Tahiti story.

My Reviews

Strongly recommend working with Ann!

Reviewed By Deb - New York, NY | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
From start to finish, Ann was an incredible resource for us, as we planned our 15th wedding anniversary trip. Ann fielded my *many* questions quickly and with expertise - and always with an upbeat and positive attitude. She let me know what was possible and what wasn't - my family has a unique set of (great!) circumstances that makes planning a trip particularly challenging - and Ann worked within our constraints to send us on a vacation that was absolutely what we were looking for. She did not consider her job done when we were booked - she checked in on us to ensure we had everything we needed up to our journey's start, and checked in with us after, to ensure everything was as it should have been. Ann cut through the clutter of too-much-information available on the internet, got us the real, informed scoop on the place we were going, and got us the vacation we were dreaming of. What a difference it made, to use an expert, versus trying to do this on my own. Huge thanks!!

Dream vacation in Cambodia

Reviewed By Traveling Hoosier - Indianapolis, IN | Traveled to Cambodia ~ East and Southeast Asia
We contacted Daily Travel Dose to provide us with a two-week customized tour of Cambodia for a family of 4 (with 2 teenagers). We could not have been more pleased with the result. From day one, Ann Bishop listened to our requests and wishes, made recommendations based on her own experiences, and quickly put together a draft of a proposed itinerary. After several reviews, we settled on an incredible tour at an amazing price point. The trip itself exceeded our expectations: the local guides were fantastic and knowledgeable, the hotels were fabulous, and the local tour operator was very responsive to last minute requests. We highly recommend Daily Travel Dose, and will definitely entrust Ann with our future travel adventures!

Phenomenal trip to Disney & Universal!

Reviewed By Deb - New York, NY | Traveled to Florida ~ USA
Ann is a consistently fantastic travel concierge. This was the 2nd trip we went on through Ann - and I am 100% certain we will work with her again.

We have complex travel needs that would probably turn a less customer-focused professional off. Ann does not back down from a challenge, and embraced working with us! She worked directly with the property to advocate for us on many levels - taking away all stress from us in planning this trip.

Going to Disney and Universal with 3 kids is a big deal (logistically, financially, emotionally). Ann was absolutely fluent in all aspects of visiting both franchises, and used her expertise to make sure we optimized our time there, and got the most out of our visit. She gave us insider tips and went above and beyond in researching every aspect of what we wanted to do with our kids.

Ann did not consider her work done, once we were booked. She checked in before and on arrival - and followed up after. A true professional!

A Trip Postponed

Reviewed By Inge - Carmel, IN | Traveled to Arizona ~ USA
We originally planned a trip to Arizona during March of 2020. Ann proposed an amazing itinerary and arranged all the bookings. Due to the Covid pandemic, we had to postpone our trip. Ann managed to get full refunds of all our planned activities in a timely manner.
Ann rebooked everything for March 2021 and we couldn't have been more pleased. Arizona was wonderful, and Ann's proposed itinerary proved to be the perfect balance between sightseeing and relaxing!

Delighted - repeat clients!

Reviewed By Deb - New York, NY | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Ann is a phenomenal resource, and absolutely our go-to for trip planning (this is the third trip she has helped us plan!!). She knows her stuff - and does a great job keeping me on track, which is no small task. I love to travel, but get stuck in the details if I try to go it alone. Ann takes the stress out, and keeps it fun - she clearly enjoys what she does, and is genuinely excited about the trip we'll take, and cares a lot about us getting the trip we want. She is extremely detail-oriented, and makes sure I have everything I need, well before the start of my trip. It really helps me relax and truly enjoy the vacation with my family.
