Luxury Cruise & European Destination Advisor

My life is travel! I divide my time between planning trips, traveling, and spending time with my family. I also love photography, so traveling and taking pictures make a great combination,

I am a travel agency owner with over 20 years of experience in luxury cruising and customized trips around the world. Through my ongoing relationships with preferred suppliers, I am able to provide exceptional deals and privileged treatment for my guests.

As a European custom travel specialist, I have created over 100 unique trips all over the continent. Whether it’s a journey for a couple, extended family, or a group of friends, I’ll do all of the planning and legwork in advance to provide you the best Europe has to offer.

The tour companies that I work with like Tauck, Tradesco, and Abercrombie & Kent regularly deliver impeccable experiences and service for my most discriminating explorers.

I’ve personally traveled to a dozen countries in Europe, with the majority of my time spent in Italy. I have sent many guests to Italy on custom trips, including cooking classes, winery visits, heritage touring, and more.

An Italian vacation can please anyone, from honeymooners to extended families! You might stay at a restful villa in the countryside, explore romantic Venice during the carnival season, or possibly discover the beautiful lakes district where you could spot George Clooney!

I have also arranged many European river cruise tours on Viking Cruises and AMA Waterways. These lines provide the luxury amenities cruisers expect and offer unmatched access to the quaint villages and towns that dot the Danube, Loire and Rhine.

I’ve also designed combination land-cruise trips with customized itineraries to make the most of your vacation time.

I’m a Luxury Cruise Specialist certified by CLIA (Cruise Line International Association) with personal experience on over 30 cruises and a dozen cruise lines.

Lest you think I only have experience with Europe, let me tell you I’ve traveled extensively to Mexico, the Caribbean and other exotic locations to experience the finest resorts and restaurants first-hand.

My most recent trip took me to Belize. I stayed in two Francis Ford Coppola resorts and snorkeled with stingrays and nurse sharks.

Before I send a couple to a romantic destination, I always ensure they’re going to a place I have seen and approved.

My favorite honeymoon to book? Africa. For a recent honeymoon couple who wanted something exotic, I planned a trip to South Africa. This exceptional journey combined the exciting contrasts of Africa. From private touring in the cosmopolitan city Cape Town to the natural wonders of game drives in Kruger National Park.

This lucky duo saw the "Big Five"—5 astonishing African animals to see in the wild—including leopards at night! Stops included 2 different luxury safari camps and then on to a beach resort in Zanzibar to relax and refresh. I’ve enjoyed sending honeymoon couples to Africa to form memories that will last a lifetime. I can’t wait to go back myself!

Regardless of the occasion, I can take the planning off your plate and arrange the accommodations, transportation, and other details to make it effortless for you. Put me to work on your next trip and see the difference a customized vacation can make in your life!

My clients expect top-notch service and I deliver! I like to keep my business small, which allows me to provide superior customer service to each individual.

Contact me and you'll understand what makes Prestige a preferred travel resource for discerning travelers.

"You are the best travel agent we have ever worked with! I know this is a service business—but you go way beyond what anyone would expect. Every detail, no matter how small was always addressed." —Shelley & Saul

"Thank you so much for everything you did for our honeymoon. We couldn’t have asked for a better travel agent. Everything was taken care of; we literally had to worry about nothing! This is huge when you’re planning a wedding and have really no time to focus on anything else. Costa Rica was such a great experience! If it weren’t for the packages you showed us, my wife and I probably would have missed out on some great adventu

We Cruise!

Reviewed By Jim the Lizard - Cleveland, Ohio | Traveled to Carribean
Kate is a vital source of information regarding our travel arrangements. She is well versed with port information, cruise destination information, and particularly overseas info. Can't think of a time in our three years utilizing her as our travel agent that she has not answered the call personally, or responded to an email within a few hours. Exceptionally friendly, but not afraid to offer her insight or opinion; I value that, rather than have someone not advise me on their own experiences. I would highly recommend Kate (and have recommended her!) to others for their travel arrangements. She is professional, thorough and efficient, as well as friendly and accommodating.

Best time of our life

Reviewed By Molly George - Ambler, PA | Traveled to Mexico
My husband and I were very fortunate to work with Kate when it came time to plan our honeymoon. She answered all of our questions, and gave us exactly what we were looking for. From the beginning, we discussed budget and what we had in mind for our ideal honeymoon. Kate found us an all inclusive resort and it was within our budget. The resort in Mexico was absolutely perfect, especially being newly weds. The resort accommodated our every need, and we were given a little wedding package, which was absolutely amazing. If it wasn't for Kate, we would not have been able to go on our perfect honeymoon! We cannot thank her enough, and we appreciated everything she has done!

It's hard to appreciate how much work goes into planning a vacation. There are so many moving parts, and Kate handled every one perfectly. Our trip was flawless, down to every minute detail. Every flight, transfer, tour, hotel, and even restaurant suggestions were spot on. The guides she provided for us were prompt and extremely personable. She provided suggestions for activities and day trips. She makes it all seem so easy. I can't imagine how our trip could have been any easier or more fun. We have used Kate on previous vacations, and have always been extremely happy. I can't recommend her highly enough. I wish I could give her 6 "stars".

We used Kate to help plan and manage our Honeymoon. She made life SOOOO much easier for us, especially considering all the wedding plans we already had to deal with. We ended up with a 3 day stay in Rome, followed by a 10 night cruise through Italy, Turkey and Greece. She handled everything from airline arrangements to private guided tours. She had a driving service there for us at the airport, as well as to take us to and from the port of the cruise. I 100% plan to use Kate for all my future travels. She answered every question we had, and made life so much easier for us to travel.

Amazing Trip w/ a Serious Twist

Reviewed By Steven E. - Pittsburgh, PA | Traveled to Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
The bucket list trip of a lifetime with my wife and daughters to celebrate her special birthday. We had worked with Kate on several other memorable trips . The trips have always been terrific and without issue. I worked with Kate who concurrently worked with an established DM firm on this Japan trip to pull together all the amazing and time consuming details necessary to make this trip extra special. Without warning and after being fully planned and paid directly by us the DM firm abruptly shuttered their doors and became silent. We learned that no payments had ever been forwarded to the Japanese firms who would deliver the on ground services. Kate became Super-Kate. She immediately did all of the research necessary to help us restore our financial loss. She found a way to work directly with the in Japan supplier to restore their trust, and exactly rebuild the trip. I recommend Kate and Prestige Travel to anyone who wants to know that she has your back and is a real Pro.

Top-notch Agent with a Personal Touch

Reviewed By Demanding Traveler - Merion Station, PA | Traveled to
Kate has been planning all of my trips, both domestic and international, for several years and I wouldn't even think of using anyone else. Her suggestions re locations, including specific hotels and activities, have made trip planning fun when it could have been tedious, since I have trouble making decisions. She also finds great options that don't strain my budget. I appreciate that she encourages communication about everything, including my detailed trip recaps. She's also always available when problems arise, such as my most recent near disaster, when she wasn't even in town, but calmly walked me through how to salvage my vacation when my daughter discovered that her passport had expired the same day that we were scheduled to leave for Italy. She's simply superlative!

Reviewed By Dave - West Chester, PA | Traveled to
Been working with Kate for more than 10 years. She is attentive and plans things according to our budget. If trying to save a few dollars when taking the kids to a resort or over seas etc she has great suggestions. When planning for just the 2 of us and we want a little more luxury she knows how to get it done. Fabulous trip to Greece last month. Everthing perfect without a hitch. Arranges transfers, hotels, guides, tours, etc and make the whole experience fun and without hassle, so when we arrive we can relax and not stress the little stuff that everyone knows can put a serious drag on our short times to unwind and get away. Who needs to worry about getting taken for a bad taxi ride when there is a van prepaid waiting for you. Use Kate. Won't go wrong. And she's been everywhere so nothing like first hand knowledge.

Honeymoon Savior!!!

Reviewed By Evan - Malvern, PA | Traveled to
My wife and I owe everything to Kate for putting together such an amazing honeymoon in Saint Lucia! Throughout the entire planning process, she was incredibly patient with us as we overloaded her with potential destinations we were curious about. We eventually booked Saint Lucia in May 2016 for a September honeymoon - Kate set us up with the right flights, arranged for our transportation on the island, and booked us at two wonderful resorts (one more intimate/romantic; the other a smaller all inclusive). It was everything we wanted that fit our interests and, of course, budget. And so it wasn't until the night before our 6 am departure (as I was checking us in online) that I realized my passport had expired 6 days prior.....sure enough, Kate was there to save us! She was on the phone with me that night (about 10:30 pm) to figure out a revised game plan. Within 24 hours she managed to preserve our entire honeymoon package by moving our departure out 4 days, allowing me to renew my passport and re book our flights (Delta miraculously gave me a 100% refund without penalty). Had this happened without Kate as our travel agent, I don't think we ever would have gotten to Saint Lucia. Kate, you're the best - thank you for setting Anita and I up with such a memorable honeymoon (we know you went above and beyond)!! We'll most definitely be in touch when we plan our next trip!

Reviewed By Our Honeymoon was Perfect Thanks to Kate - King of Prussia, PA | Traveled to
Kate helped us with our honeymoon. We had a place in mind that did not match our budget. She spoke to me at length to find out what exactly we were looking for and what type of people we were. She gave us a location that I never would have thought about explaining that we will have a five star place and treatment for exactly what we were looking for. The other location was over our budget and we wouldn't have had such a great place and wouldn't have been able to stay for as long as we wanted to. Kate explained to me what would be expected, organized great flights, transportation to and from the airport, sent us an extremely helpful book with our itinerary, information about the resort and area, etc., neon luggage tags and all in an convenient travel bag. Everything went so smoothly and she was right on point with where we stayed. She travels personally to a lot of these places, so her recommendations are personal a lot of times. I will use her again when I travel and recommend her to others in the future. Kate is extremely helpful, personable, pleasant and takes the time to learn exactly who you are and what you want to she can send you to the perfectly fitting place. Thanks so much, Kate, for making our honeymoon perfect.

Amazing Honeymoon. She made everything possible.

Reviewed By Will and Kristina Honeymoon - Federick, MD | Traveled to
Kate was recommended to me through my boss. Right away I told her our budget and places we would like to go. She recommended Jamaica out of our choices. This was definitely a great choice. Moshe found us a romantic resort and a great room that fit our budget. She even got us a credit at the resort which was great! She gave us plenty of international travel tips and safety information. All of our information was sent in a timely fashion. When we returned home we even had a gift from her. She was more than helpful and very sweet. Easy to work with and will be working with her again.

Portugal: Kate appreciated the type of vacation we were seeking

Reviewed By MK - Charleston SC | Traveled to
We wanted a fun, interesting as well as relaxing vacation this year and wanted it too be in Portugal, a place where we never had visited. We stayed at a great location in Lisbon- Pestana Pousada. Not only was the hotel and staff first class, the location could not have been better. Kate had recommended some day trips and, although we did no book them ahead of time because of medical issues, in retrospect, we wish we had. We also rented a car and drive to the Algarve for several days. There was a little snafu at the car rental with the company itself but we contacted Kate and she was very responsive. Kate booked us in a great location in the Algarve. We returned for one day to Lisbon and stayed at another Pestana- the Palacio-- exceptional choice! We have used Kate for several European trips,?inclyding our honeymoon, and every trip has been ideal!

Travel made easy!

Reviewed By Busy Mom! - Maryland | Traveled to
As a busy working Mom, it was difficult for me to make the time to properly research the overwhelming Disney experience. Friends of mine have spent months/ even years researching and planning their Disney trips and I just didn't have the time so thought to reach out to Kate. I expressed to her that I wanted the trip to be Toddler friendly, and as "easy" as possible for us. Kate made everything from the flights, travel connections, hotel and activity reservations EASY and SEAMLESS! She also gave me a "Disney 101" education. Everything I needed to know, she taught me :) We had only one minor glitch in our airport transfer that had NOTHING to do with Kate, and she went above and beyond to reach out to that vendor to not only express our frustration but to have our entire cost refunded for the service. Bottom line- Kate is knowledgeable, VERY responsive, and truly cares about her clients and the level of satisfaction they receive. I would highly recommend Kate and will continue to use her services exclusively!

Italy!

Reviewed By Florida Girl - Vero Beach, Florida | Traveled to
Kate booked us an amazing trip to Italy. She was easy to work with and extremely responsive to all our questions. We started our trip in Rome, then a week in an incredible villa in Tuscany we then ventured to Venice and Stresa where we spent another week on Lake Maggiore. Forget about Lake Como and let Kate take you to Stresa what a beautiful place. Everywhere we went was amazing, her recommendations, were just what we liked. She really listens to your needs to get you to the best places. The transfers & car rentals were so reliable that in itself was unbelievable. We didn't have to think of a thing. Kate got us an english speaking GPS and an Italian cell phone to make calls to make reservations at restaurants or if we were walking around a city and were lost we had someone to help us. Kate was soooo good that we have booked another trip with her for next year, this time a cruise to the Baltics and I am entrusting her with my son and future daughter in law. She has booked their honeymoon and they have never been out of the country and I know they will get to everywhere they are going with ease. Thank you Kate you truly are the best!

Wonderful custom trip to Italy

Reviewed By Michele B. - Phoenixville, PA | Traveled to
Kate designed a fabulous 12-day trip for us to Italy. In addition to seeing the sights in Florence, Tuscany, Rome and Pompeii, we took a side-trip to the remote town of Gamberale to visit distant relatives whom we'd never met. This was a true highlight of the trip. We ended our vacation with 3 relaxing days in Positano on the gorgeous Amalfi Coast. Throughout the trip, our hotels were perfectly located, our guides were knowledgeable, and our drivers were terrific. Every detail was expertly handled and the entire trip flowed flawlessly. Kate's knowledge, connections and top-notch service made this our best vacation ever.

Norwegian Cruising for Us!

Reviewed By Jim The Lizard - Cleveland, Ohio | Traveled to British Virgin Islands,
Prompt, knowledgeable, and not afraid to offer her insight or opinion, Kate has been a true advocate for our travel needs. Compared to agents I have worked with in the past, Kate listens to what we would like to do on our vacations and travel, then works hard to implement our desires into functional and realistic planning. Not afraid to offer her two cents, she is a great guide to cruises and land travel. In addition, I found Kate to not be pushy or overbearing - she is available when we needed her, but did not call too often or waste our time with unwanted or unnecessary sales or deals. Funny and down to earth, I highly recommend Kate -

She ensured I had an amazing Bachelorette Party!

Reviewed By Lauren - Philadelphia, PA | Traveled to
Kate worked with me for almost a year to ensure I had the perfect bachelorette party. After discussing our group's budget and areas of interest, she came up with a few all-inclusives she felt would best suit our needs. We then worked together and agreed Breathless Rivera Cancun would be the perfect spot....and it was! The Resort was incredible and had everything we were looking for. Prior to leaving, Kate provided us with a booklet listing all of our trip's confirmation details. She also sent reminder emails to ensure we had everything we needed for international travel. When we returned, she also reached out to see how everything was. From start to finish she was kind, professional and efficient. I am so looking forward to my honeymoon that we are planning with her as well!

Preparation is the key

Reviewed By trijohdk - Aarhus, Denmark | Traveled to
From first idea to final itinerary Kate's knowledge and help was extraordinary all the way. As a European I was amazed that she knew all of our travel regulations when going on vacation outside EU and how easy she made everything. The final organization left no details behind; the preparation was superb. When choosing Prestige Travel as your travel agency you're not only in capable and safe hands, you're also sure to discover that hidden gem on your travels you don't want to miss out on. Thank you for arranging our wonderful trip to China, Kate.

Family Travel

Reviewed By Steven E. - Pittsburgh, PA | Traveled to
We have been using Kate's travel planning services for about 4 years. We have taken several trips, some with our daughters (18 & 26) and some alone with just my wife and I. The travel has been to Western and Eastern Europe and into the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. When planning travel and tours with Kate to places where she has travelled, and experienced activities there; she is amazing! All has been right on target for our style and caliber of travel. The 1 and only cruise was also excellent. When Kate has not personally traveled to a location or done certain location/tour activities, she relies on a professional Supplier/Broker with whom she has a business relationship to recommend tours and lodging. Our experience in this area with Kate has been reasonably good. All in all Kate is a high caliber travel professional and has provided services to us at that level.
