Stress-Free Multi-City Travel for You

This is my 11th year of making your travel dreams come true! I am an ARC-Verified Travel Consultant and a CLIA Master Cruise Counselor. I specialize in creating a custom vacation experience for each of my clients as I plan every detail from flights to hotels to activities and everything in between.

I work interactively with you to learn about your goals and travel desires. Next, I carefully research and organize every aspect of your trip. I also serve as your vendor advocate and am there to help you with any needs or concerns each step of the way.

Over the years, I have found my favorite trips to plan and book are multi-city European vacations. I enjoy the planning required to ensure a well-paced trip while helping you get the most out of each city in your trips. I love creating custom itineraries for destinations such as France, Italy, England, and Spain.

Through my experience as a traveler and travel consultant, I have formed relationships with travel suppliers and vendors on location that allow me to set up tours, transportation, and other activities through those I trust to provide the best service.

In addition to my European expertise, I am an expert on booking resort trips to the Mayan Riviera. I know the flights that will get you there whether you're leaving from Casper, Wyoming, Newark, New Jersey, or almost anyplace else in the US. My experience includes a wide range of resorts in the Riviera Maya, from adults-only to family-friendly.

I'm also super-experienced in planning out European and Alaskan cruises. When I book your cruise, I include everything from flight plans to shore excursions to pre-hotel stays so that your travel experience is complete and stress-free.

Through my own experiences, I have come to believe there is nothing like meeting new people in their own countries. I love the interactions that come from travel and the way each new contact adds up to make a difference in our world view.

Let me help you create unique experiences as we plan a vacation to your next amazing destination.

Why choose me to plan your trip?

Great Time Across the Pond

Reviewed By Chris - Stirling, NJ | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
We decided in September that we wanted to take a vacation during NJ Teacher Convention week in early November. Despite the tight time frame, Dave found us several options. We opted for a week in London, then Dave took care of the rest. Great centrally-located hotel, flights and transfers, tour passes and the hard-to-get Harry Potter Studio Tour - all we had to do was say yes! Dave is so helpful, and he does his best to take care of the details so you don't have to worry about anything except enjoying yourself. This was not our first time working with Dave, and it surely won't be the last!

Trip of a Lifetime!

Reviewed By Doctor - Providence, RI | Traveled to South Africa ~ Africa
I cannot recommend Dave Rosenthal more highly. Our trip to South Africa was flawlessly planned and executed, from start to finish. We spent time in the Cape Town area and in Kruger National Park on safari and could not have dreamed up a better experience. Each and everyday exceeded our expectations. We were able to fully relax on our trip and engage in our surroundings knowing that Dave had taken care of everything. Dave is extremely knowledgeable, detail oriented, and meticulous; he works tirelessly to customize the trip that is desired by and appropriate for your group. Dave is also extremely honest, approachable, and easy to work with. We cannot wait to work with Dave again for our next “trip of a lifetime.”

Miracles do happen!

Reviewed By Co-pilot - Riverside, CT | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
Dave is a miracle worker. He took a bucket list dream for my husband to return to Oahu where he had done his military service decades ago and combined this goal with a reunion with longtime neighbors and turned it into a most memorable vacation. From sorting out which islands to visit, comparing cruise versus island-hopping by plane, hotels versus condominiums, and which of the possible tours to do, Dave was doggedly driven to put together an itinerary that worked for us. He even managed to have a rainbow to greet us as we arrived in Honolulu!

All four members of our party appreciated the quality of the accommodations and tours that Dave arranged for us. We also appreciated the downtime he built into the itinerary so we came back feeling as though we had been on vacation and not frenetic.

Mahalo!!

Wonderful excursion to Norway!

Reviewed By CCT - Westchester NY | Traveled to Norway ~ Europe
With work and several family matters underway, we had no time for planning our vacation. With only a month to go, I contacted Dave Rosenthal to help organize our trip to Norway. What a lifesaver he was!

We were traveling in peak season, and were late to start planning. Dave investigated availability, and took care of our airfare (four flights), hotels, and excursions. He researched and booked, so all I needed to do was review the opportunities.

The family had a wonderful time. We will be using Dave again.

An Amazing Northern Europe Trip !!

Reviewed By Rich & Monica - Staten Island, NY | Traveled to Norway ~ Europe
We have been using Dave / Daydream Excursions for many years - and each time he never fails !! He surprised us with his new excursions and trips. He goes ABOVE AND BEYOND what he needs to do.

He plans the air, airline seats, last minute changes, cruise arrangements around Norway and Amsterdam. He then arranged for us to take a transfer to the Thalys (train) to Paris.

We did the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre tours as well as sight seeing.
On top of that he arranged the transportation to Disney Euro in Paris where we stayed another 4 days and obtained park passes which he managed as well.

I can't say enough on how personal and professional Dave is - please use him as you wont have to research anything or arrange as he is a one-stop shopping.

We will use again and again and again.

Thanks again, Dave.

Dave To the Rescue!

Reviewed By AliciaS - Boston, MA | Traveled to
Dave planned a great trip for me and my Mom to go to New Orleans and then onto a cruise to Central America. I wanted to keep our vacation within a tight budget. Dave was able to keep our total vacation cost below our budget limit. This included airfare, hotel, 7 day cruise with a mini suite, unlimited beverage package, upgrade on specialty restaurants, excursions, car service and insurance! He even checked in with me a day before we left to make sure I had all of my confirmations. Dave has planned a few complicated trips for me in the past to Europe. One time I left all of my tickets at home and didn't realize it until I was already in Germany. I called Dave in a panic and he was able to work with my husband at home to get the tickets overnighted to me. I know that Dave is always there for his customers and he will go the extra mile for them. I would recommend Dave to anyone who is planning a trip.

What a wonderful time!

Reviewed By Mark - Middlesex, NJ | Traveled to
Neither my wife nor I had been to London in many years so we relied upon Dave to help us plan this trip with our 13-year-old daughter. Dave suggested a lovely apartment-style hotel very close to many of the places we wanted to see. We ended up just walking to most of the places with a few trips on the Underground to supplement. Dave booked us to fly on Virgin Atlantic which was a cut above many domestic carriers I've used in the past for business. We wanted to get tickets to see In the Heights while we were there and, once again, Dave came through, this time with 5th row center seats! Knowing that my wife, my daughter and I are Harry Potter fans, Dave arranged for us to go to the Harry Potter Studio Tour which was, in a word, magical! It was a truly lovely trip and Dave was essential to helping us plan and working with us. Thanks again!

We spent 14 days in Italy with 2 days added on each end for travelling. My only worry was making the connections from hotels to trains and other transportation. All our connections were perfect. The one time we didn't book a connection was from the Termini train station in Rome to our hotel and it was a real pain in the neck. I wish I would have made sure someone was there to pick us up! Our cab probably cost as much as a driver would have - and there was a very long line at the taxi stand at the station. So if Dave tells you to purchase a transfer - listen to him!!! I can't count how many hours I spent on the phone with him planning this trip. It was a "bucket-list" trip for me and he made sure everything was perfect. I will definitely call him the next time I'm planning a long vacation. Thanks, Dave!!!

Italy trip

Reviewed By Stuart - Dublin, CA | Traveled to
Dave did an amazing job in planning our trip. His attention to every detail helped make our trip that much easier and more importantly, allowed us to maximize the whole experience. He is very knowledgable about how to get the most out of every city, where to stay and what to do while at the same time gives you the flexibility to build the trip based on your own preferences/interests. Dave was great about helping sort out last minute confirmations/changes and very responsive when we needed something during our trip. Highly recommended!

When I want to travel, I want everything handled for me. Sure, I can review websites and look at pretty pictures of different cruises, tours or destinations, but ultimately, I will rely more on a good travel agent's opinions and advice than anything else. Dave Rosenthal has book a half dozen cruises for me in the past and the best trip I ever took, an 8 day trip of Italy to celebrate my 50th birthday last year. He booked our travel, transportation, tour group and hotels and allowed me to enjoy the trip without investing a ton of time planning every detail. I've recommended Dave to my in-laws and two or three other friends, and have no qualms about talking up his services. He's become more than my go-to-guy for travel. Dave is a genuine friend. (And Dave, if you ever need a referral, please feel free to give out my phone number.) Looking forward to cruising on the Oasis...16 days and counting.

Dave has always been most accommodating when we plan our trips. We never have any questions unanswered. He has always given us good advice and very helpful when we are questioning what type of room we want for our needs. We have never been disappointed when we work with Dave.
