No one travels to Asia without a travel agent.  After years of experience traveling to Asia, I knew I could advise the world explorers, the heritage and cultural travelers, those folks with adventurous bucket lists on the best way to see the Asia they wanted to discover.  I wanted to the travel agent who asked the traveler questions and listened for the answers so I could build exactly the trip the traveler wanted and provide the best possible value.

Even before I began working as a travel agent, I had traveled to China, S. Korea, the Philippines and Hong Kong many times as a volunteer for an international adoption agency.  Since 1996, I organized Motherland Tours (also known as Homeland or Heritage Tours) to S. Korea for foreign-born adoptees and their families.  In 2004, I started to organize Motherland Tours to China and Vietnam.  The Motherland Tours are custom tours arranged to fit the needs of the adoptee and their families.  Tours visit cities and provinces, cultural highlights and orphanages.

When experienced travelers talk about traveling to a new place, they have concerns about meeting the guides, languages, types of hotels, sightseeing experiences, food and more.  Because of my first-hand experience with travel to so many Asian countries, I can put their mind at ease with information I have learned through my travels.  In addition, I can assure travelers that I use only reputable, reliable and locally licensed tour companies that show the utmost care with clients.  Despite arranging travel for hundreds of travelers to Asia, I have never had a client disappointed with my services or the services of a local tour company contracted through me.

My travel to Asia includes visits to Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Singapore as well as China, S. Korea, Hong Kong and Macau.  In the past few years, I have earned specialist certificates from many Asian countries as well as being a Certified Travel Counselor, a Certified Niche Travel Specialist, and an Accredited Cruise Counselor.

It was because of my attention to detail, knowledge of Asia and specialty travel work with foreign-born adoptees that I was recognized as one of the top 25 Travel Advisors by Travel Agent Magazine.

Of course, I arrange river cruises, big ship cruises, European travel as well as Asia but my heart and my passion is in Asia Travel.

My Reviews

Most Wonderful Trip

Reviewed By Patty Zicky - Jersey City, New Jersey | Traveled to China ~ East and Southeast Asia
Kate has been absolutely fabulous. She arranged our tour in China (from Kunming to Xi'an, from Xi'an to Beijing, and from Beijing to Hong Kong), taking into consideration what we want to accomplish while in China. Her advise has been so valuable in terms of where to stay, where to go, best way to maximize stay and time. Her overseas partners are equally great (and they speak English!)

We have been so "wow-ed" by her services which made our trip seamless and memorable!

Thank you Kate! You rock!

South Korea

Reviewed By Beidel's - Newburg PA | Traveled to South Korea ~ East and Southeast Asia
Great trip to South Korea. Kate helped plan a visit to our son at Osan Air Force Base and a tour of the country side. The countryside tour had great food and accommodations. Enjoyed the company of both the other tourist and guide. Finished trip in Seoul. Kate booked lovely hotel in central location for our final days. Flights also booked by Kate and were flawless. Thanks for everything Kate.

Susan, So glad your trip to visit your son, Ben, went well. S. Korea is a beautiful country with exceptional people. Glad you got a chance to see the countryside and meet some of the people. Please keep me in mind for any of your further travels or referrals. Kate

Wonderful tour service

Reviewed By marjay3 - East Meadow, NY | Traveled to China ~ East and Southeast Asia
Kate DeLosso has wonderful contacts in the Far East to make a trip memorable. We used her services to hire a guide and driver for two trips that we took to the Far East. Both times, we had wonderful local people who took excellent care of us. I recommend using Kate to arrange this wonderful service.

A perfect 10!

Reviewed By Jim M. - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
My wife and I found Kate to be very responsive and easy to work with. She quickly understood the prime objectives of our trip and developed an itinerary that included all the principal sites and attractions that we were hoping to visit. All reservations and transfers went flawlessly and we had complete confidence that there would be no issues with the 9 hotel stays and 11 separate flights that our trip encompassed. Our room locations in hotels that offered views were excellent. Every detail was addressed down to the excellent seat location of our tickets to 2 days at the Australian Open tennis tournament which were close to the action and fortunately shaded from the midday Melbourne sun which can be quite uncomfortable.
We were also very pleased with Kate's travel services for previous trips to several European countries as well as add-on travel for cruises to Alaska, the Baltic Sea and Greek islands.

Without Kate I'd still be trying to figure it all out!

Reviewed By Susan - Chadds Ford, PA | Traveled to
We have used Kate DeLosso Travel for years and she is currently planning our trip for 2016. Whether it be land, sea and/or air, Kate is there for us. Yes, we could do it ourselves but I have discovered over the years the advantages of using a really good travel agent who has knowledge & savvy saves time & money. Looking on line for air, travel tours or great cruises is really time consuming and we don't know all the resources available which makes for a lot of waste. Kate knows from personal experience (she's traveled far & wide) and if she doesn't know, she has the network & resources to find out. We've used Kate for river cruises, Mediterranean & Panama cruises, Europe, Argentina, land tours & bus trips. When we want to travel by ourselves, she arranges our air, pickup tours, cars and train info & giving excellent experiential tips. In emergencies, she has proved to be the best. While on a cruise trip with Kate's group several years ago, I fell in Croatia and was seriously injured which ended my cruise mid trip. Kate was our group leader--she sprang into action and helped me through the morass of medical, trip insurance details & intervened for me with the airlines and ship to get me safely home. She followed up with me by helping me with the trip insurance co. (which is both a lifesaver & tangle of paperwork!) for reimbursement. That's a travel agent who cares as well! Finally, Kate is patient with our questions or trip inquiries regardless of whether we are booking or not. My husband & love to travel and have done it extensively, together & solo, so I am glad to have Kate DeLosso Travel as our travel guru. Susan C.

Simply the "Best"

Reviewed By Pat & Bob J - Delran, NJ | Traveled to
I have known Kate for 20 years...she's my friend, my sister at heart and simply the "best" at what she does...travel. I wouldn't go anywhere without her knowledge and expertise. My husband and I have traveled many times with Kate and hubby Tony and we just have the best time, no high pressure to do this or do that, after all, we're on vacation. Recently Kate planned a river cruise for 10 couples...unfortunately my travel buddy had to cancel at the last minute due to emergency knee surgery...no problem...we both had insurance, what could go wrong? Two weeks after our return I learned that I almost didn't get to make this trip of a lifetime. The cruise line insisted that I had to pay for a single room at almost twice the cost. Kate fought for me, and from what I understand it was quite a fight, but thanks to Kate I was able to go on this incredible journey without incurring any further expenses. This is why you need a good travel agent. Whatever your travel plans are...a honeymoon, first time cruiser, family reunion or just a good time vacation...Kate's the one you should call.
