Europe Travel Specialist
Strolling through France's picturesque villages
Growing up in a small village in the Austrian Alps, I became enthralled with travel when taking a school trip to Greece. The excitement and enrichment I felt led me to take any opportunity to discover different parts of the world.
Europe remains on top of my travel list. Every country is so distinct with so many beautiful sights, picturesque little villages, full of history, continually being restored to welcome visitors for an authentic experience.
A trip to Europe is on many US travelers wish list, but they feel it is complicated and expensive to get there. With flights to Europe being on an all-time low and the US Dollar having good conversion rates, travel to Europe has become very affordable. Based on my own travel experience and the travel suppliers I use, I can make your trip unfold seamless and with ease. And, in case there are some unforeseen events, I am always available to guide you through them or make phone calls on your behalf, so that you experience the least inconvenience.
I can assist you in seeing Europe as a solo traveller, a couple, a family or a group, in whichever style you wish, by
- guided tours
- river and ocean cruises
- independent travel
- self drive
- a combination of the above
I love to introduce first time travelers to Europe, guiding them every step of the way. If you have been to Europe several times, based on my connection with specific travel suppliers, I enjoy to find you experiences that are off-the-beaten-path, like a stay in a castle, a Tuscan cooking class, a wine tasting tour in the Bordeaux region, a traditional meal on a local farm, a Home of Thrones Tour in Ireland, or a tour to see the Christmas Markets, to name a few.
In addition to my own travel, I regularly attended seminars online and supplier sponsored events to constantly further my knowledge about different travel products. Just last week I had the pleasure to meet the managing director of Brendan Vacations, Catherine Reilly, in a seminar about travel to Ireland.
Living in Manhattan allows me to do different ship inspections as they are in port at the cruise terminal, the Viking Star being a recent one.
I completed a river cruise specialist course with Avalon, Ama Waterways, and Viking River Cruises, and received travel certificates from the Globus and Trafalgar Family of Brands.
I graduated from the College of Disney Knowledge. Disney is known for it’s theme parks and ocean cruises. In addition, Disney offers family travel in Europe, on land and on some rivers.
Among the European countries that I visited in depth are
- Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg

Really great trip
Our Italian Adventure
Gabriella was responsive throughout the process, offering not only her insights and recommendations but also delivering on our personal requests. She delivered all the necessary paperwork electronically and in printouts, highlighting the sections we should pay close attention to. It was a huge relief to have her support and knowing we can reach out to her even while on the trip if anything came up.
We would highly recommend using a caring and capable travel professional such as Gabriela!
Thanks Anoush for your kind words. It is my quest to make each vacation tailored to the specific wishes and requests of my clients. I am so happy to hear that everything worked out well and you both could enjoy your trip.
Fantastic Memory celebrating our 30th Anniversary
Thank you! Happy to read that you had a great time on the MSC cruise.
Great Personal Service
I always thought that going on line was the best way to go, but found I was overwhelmed with conflicting and sometimes incorrect time tables, schedules and pricing.
Her arrangements for flights-hotels and auto saved time and money- information is given promptly with options that helped me make the best choices- along with a great personal touch-
She helped with insurance claims that saved hundreds when unforeseen cancelations occurred while outside the US.
I plan to travel more and will entrust Gabriela with a lot of our future plans.
Thanks Paul for your kind words. Looking forward to be there when you are planning your next trip.
