Custom European Travel Planning

After traveling the world for 30 years and operating a travel business for 7, I feel like there is no trip we can’t plan!

But I do specialize in Custom European itineraries. I can help you plan that once-in-a-lifetime experience:

  • Sitting on the Grand Canal in Venice eating homemade gelato
  • Sipping Sangria on the Plaza de España in Seville, Spain
  • Hiking in the Swiss Alps after visiting quaint Swiss villages
  • Cooking or wine tasting excursions that allow you to apprentice with the world’s best local chefs and winemakers
  • River cruising, luxury, and small ship sailing
  • Independent or escorted tours

My husband and I owned a business for 30 years that required international travel. We had the good fortune to visit amazing places all over Western and Eastern Europe, as well as China, Tahiti, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, Israel, and Cuba. Throughout the years of traveling, I often spoke of how I would love to help others see the world as I saw it. After 30 years, I decided to go into the travel business!

My extensive firsthand knowledge and attention to detail is of great benefit to my clients when designing their own custom travel packages. I attend many educational seminars and workshops and travel often to personally explore the resorts, destinations, and ships that I can confidently recommend to my clients.

When my clients travel, they know that all aspects of their itinerary come together with an even flow and everything connects, from the transportation, hotels, museums and restaurants. My clients are always amazed by how the pieces all fit together on such detailed itineraries.

Regardless of your travel desires, using my comprehensive personal travels as a solid foundation, you can book with the confidence that your vacation will be perfectly planned and filled with memories to last a lifetime. Think of that special anniversary, honeymoon, or dream trip, and I can make it happen.

Let your stress unravel...when you book...with Hooked On Travel!

River Cruise Specialist

As a European travel specialist, I felt that River cruising would be a natural addition to my profile.  River cruising is about destination immersion. You dock right in the heart of a city and can begin touring wonderful destinations. There are many river cruise lines to choose from and I can help match you to the right brand depending upon what you are looking for.

Made our Belated Honey Moon To Maui Great

Reviewed By R. Trujillo - Fontana, CA | Traveled to
We gave Debbi our budget for our 5 year belated honey moon to Maui. She not only got us in budget but the accommodations she got us made us feel like we spent much more. It was a trip of a life time for us and it could not have gone any smoother.

Debbi has arranged multiple vacations for me and my wife, and each time the accommodations and service levels of the recommended properties, airlines, and other service providers have exceeded our expectations. In addition, she recently arranged a magnificent honeymoon trip for our son and his wife. She always takes time to provide multiple options and really listens to the needs/wants of her clients, in addition to following up after the trip to make certain of our satisfaction. Cannot say enough good things!

She helped my 81 year old mother plan a cruise

Reviewed By Multigenerational cruise - NJ | Traveled to
Debbi planned a cruise with very specific constraints and a multitude of ages (from a 6 year old to a 85 year old with a walker). My parents also did not want to fly to the cruise. Debbi found what they were looking for, no easy task and booked cabins at a very busy time of the year with not much notice.

Helpful, knowledgable, and flexible

Reviewed By Jon R. - Silver Spring, MD | Traveled to
Debbi did a fantastic job of helping us book our trip to Ireland. There was plenty that we knew we wanted to do, and Debbi made suggestions for days we were less sure of, offered opinions on our planned itenerary without being pushy, and helped us find excellent deals on everything from the flight to the rental car to the hotels/B&Bs. On top of all of that, Debbi is sweet and wants the best for you and your trip, however you want to do it. I could not speak higher of her and Hooked On Travel. Highly recommended.

Fabulous trip to Spain

Reviewed By RG - New Jersey | Traveled to
My husband and I just took a fabulous trip to Spain that was planned for us by Debbi. Every detail was attended to from our arrival, transfers, hotel tours, car rentals, and the flights were so easy and well planned it made seeing 3 cities in eight days a breeze. The accomodations chosen for us were lovely and perfectly located in an accessible area to all the major sites. I can not thank Debbi enough and I can not wait to plan our next trip!
