Pasadena, California Travel Agent
Customized Luxury Travel Advisor
Daydreaming in Ubud, Bali
I was born in Vietnam, and at the age of 13 I joined my mother and sister in America for a new life and adventure! I quickly began traveling all over California which I was proud to call my new home. I studied in Irvine but eventually completed my doctorate in New York City so that I could experience true city living.
Even now that I’m settled in Pasadena, I have rarely experienced a California summer since I always travel during these months! I love traveling to different islands and cities, and I often mix the two during my trips to get the best of both worlds. From bustling European cities to the great pink sand beaches of Bermuda, I am always looking for a new place to explore! I have visited over 24 countries and counting!
I became a travel agent because I care deeply about the benefits of traveling, and I want to help everyone experience it for themselves. When I work with a client, I take the time to listen and ask questions so that I truly understand what they want. I want them to be beyond thrilled, and I always go the extra mile to get them the best for their trip.
Everyone travels in a different way, and I tailor the trip according to each person’s specific goals so that it’s a unique and memorable experience. This ranges from customized all-inclusive packages to guided tours, multi-destination journeys, honeymoons, and family or group travels.
I have been to many of the most booked destinations along with other lesser seen places. I wish to go everywhere that my clients desire so that I can provide insider tips and knowledge. Some of my most recent travels and bookings include:
- Hong Kong
- South Africa
- The Caribbean
- And more!
It is my love for travel and the curiosity to learn-- of the new place and its surrounding, the beauty and its luxury, and the simplicity and its authenticity. I feel traveling is emotional and spiritual growth for the soul. It is a journey of fleeting moments yet profound memories lasting a lifetime. I want you to have these same great moments and experiences, and I will work with you to prepare an incredible vacation!
I trust Debbie's planning for my travels.
“Debbie has arranged for my traveling to many beautiful destinations such as Europe, Bali, Greece, Israel and Costa Rica. I could not have been any happier to have her as my travel agent. I was so pleased with her planning and her professionalism every time. She was so considerate about all aspects of traveling from recommending how many days would be enough to be spent at specific destinations and safety issues as what to expect there including the cost. She was able to find great deals for my flights and hotels. The hotels’ locations and quality were amazing which made the experience even more pleasant. I was specific in my traveling and she customized it perfectly. She has exceeded my expectations in every way. I highly recommend Live Travel for all your traveling needs.”
Debbie is very honest!
"Debbie has been making travel arrangements for me for many years. I'm very happy with her and am always satisfied with her planning. She takes into consideration of my needs, interests and specific situations. She is prompt and cautious making sure I would receive what I want or need. She'd make a booking for me and when the price is lower she would re-book so I could save money! I would talk about how having vegetables is important in my diet and I am a tea drinker, and she is caring enough to put in a special request for those things in our cruise’s lunch menu. She is very honest! I didn't know that we could receive an extra discount for being seniors and was thrilled when she told us so. It is like she takes care of everything from A to Z so we don't have to worry about anything and just have a good time. She surely will bring comfort and happiness to many travelers. She definitely will have my support!"
A genuine and professional travel advisor.
"I needed to book some last minute tickets for a domestic flight. Live Travel was the fastest response I had comparing to all other resources to provide me with several options within my price range. Debbie offered to take care of my hotel and rental car arrangements as well. Debbie was very professional and courteous. I will continue to use Live Travel due to her prompt attention and level of customer service."
Debbie listens and is conscious of my travel time.
“After reviewing many websites I realized that Live Travel could provide all the travel services that I needed for my trip. Debbie listened and made it easier and more comfortable for me to specify the details of my get-away. She was quick to answer my questions and by providing information along with suggestions of new hot spots, she made me feel very personable. I appreciated that she was conscious of my travel time and be sure I would have the best deal. Debbie is extremely knowledgeable and is very pleasant to work with. I will definitely recommend all my friends and family to book all their future travels with Live Travel and keep in touch with all her future deals.”
