My Travel Stories

A Magical day at the Alhambra in Spain

If you were to ask me the #1 place to visit in Spain, I would have to say the Alhambra in Granada.  When we went, we had a guide bring us there early, with pre purchased tickets.  This is an important detail.  We were surprised to see that the Alhambra is not just a palace, but a walled citadel with...Read more.

Trip of a Lifetime on Safari in Kenya and Tanzania

Wow!!!!! What a trip! It exceeded our expectations by far and I had high hopes already. The accommodations were outstanding. Gorgeous hotels and glamping.The food was delicious. Buffets as well as five star dining plus the surprise lunches at gorgeous locations. Along the way. we had Incredible scenery with the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. I've saved the best for last. Oh my goodness, the animals! We saw all of the Big Five, just what we were hoping for. Hundreds of animals that we saw each day- some around every corner. Lions every day! From cute gazelles to elephant families and giraffes. We even saw some of the great migration! This was truly the trip of a lifetime and I would go back in a heartbeat. Worth every penny. I brought things home that remind me of our wonderful journey. I also have what seems like a million great photos.Every detail was taken care of. We had the best guide ever. I can't thank you enough for setting us up for such a great adventure!

Luxury River Cruise with side trip to London

My husband and I just returned from a once-in-a lifetime, bucket list trip to Europe arranged by Diane Frisch Destinations. We traveled six countries by plane, train, automobile and ship! Diane’s attention to detail was phenomenal. She updated us constantly and checked in to be certain everything was going smoothly. She obtained extra perks for us in hotels and on the ship. On excursions that we booked ourselves Diane gave us tips on what to see and where to stay and eat. Diane is always available (which is important when your time zone is different). You ask, why do I need a travel advisor when I can book over the internet? If you want impeccable attention to detail and a perfect trip without hassle, consult Diane.

A Very special vacation to London and Amsterdam

The vacation was absolutely wonderful. The hotel you suggested gets 5 stars from my hubby (best martini ever). Delightful service from the entire staff and food was excellent. Best location to walk to so many venues or to take the Underground. The hotel in Amsterdam was also excellent. Great location and wonderful service. Rebecca and I even used the spa and it was delightful (now she is spoiled for any future facials and massages). All the tours we booked through you in Amsterdam were excellent (our tour guide for private day with windmills and tulips was especially good). Nothing anyone can do about a taxi strike in Amsterdam. So glad we decided to walk with our luggage to hotel b/c people were stopped for hours. And only one day of rain :) I really appreciate all your help making this a very special vacation!

Worry-free honeymoon

You were by far the biggest blessing in all of our wedding planning! We didn't have to worry even one bit about planning or traveling requirements for our honeymoon! We are so thankful!
Nicole E. San Francisco

We had the best honeymoon!

The honeymoon was perfect. From Hawaii itself being a great playground for adventure, to the amazing hotels we stayed at. We cannot thank you enough for planning and providing us the perfect honeymoon we envisioned. All and all, it was just perfect. we loved relaxing at both the Fairmont and Andaz, and really enjoyed our time at both. The excursions that you arranged were perfect too, we learned so much and had a blast. Again, we cannot thank you enough Mrs. Frisch. We had the best honeymoon!

Diane is a complete professional

I can without any hesitation completely and highly recommend Diane Frisch Destinations. We worked together over a full year planning the most wonderful France/Italy trip and then Covid-19 hit. She spent weeks un-planning my trip and making sure that I was properly refunded all the money I had paid. I think that showed me more about her level of customer service than I had already learned from the planning of the trip. Diane is a complete professional and will be with you every step of the way. Even in the middle of a pandemic, she had me top of mind. You won't go wrong utilizing her services to plan your next trip! I can't wait to re-plan my trip with Diane!

Loved our Active family Alaska Adventure

Everything was spectacular, and as you pointed out, the weather was actually hot and sunny for 5 days. My kids, especially my 15 year old son, was engaged the entire time, looking out the van windows, conversing with our guide, and taking lots of pictures. We saw and learned so much more about Alaska with the guide than we ever would have on our own - he was invaluable! We really did have an absolutely amazing trip - we were so happy with the itinerary you put together - I love the non-stop activity on vacations - now the hard part is deciding which pictures to put on our vacation wall!

Great Holiday trip to Florence and Rome

We had a great time on our trip. We took the Frecciarossa train straight from the Rome airport to Florence and never stopped moving. The hotels were great. We had a beautiful balcony overlooking the city of Florence and Santa Croce. The hotel in Rome upgraded us to a big suite. Our favorite part of the trip by far was the cooking class we did in Rome.We met in Campo dei Fiori and walked a few blocks to an apartment that had been converted to solely host cooking classes. The actual cooking took place on the rooftop terrace! It was tented with a heater but I can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the spring or summer. We highly recommend this tour to other groups! The cooking class was a few couples and a family with their four kids who were between the ages of 13-20. After cooking we ate the meal family style. Thanks again for all of your help!

Wonderful Agent
We booked our European vacation, including a river cruise and an additional week in Germany, with Diane over 1 year ago. Who knew Covid would still be so prevalent in our lives. We are in the process of rebooking and she could not be more accommodating. Diane has been there every step of the way, keeping us informed and giving us options. She has been so patient and helpful with our questions, and concerns. Diane is amazing at what she does. She truly cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her for any type of vacation plans you are considering. She is very knowledgeable and well traveled.

Trip of a lifetime!
We contacted Diane earlier this year to begin our travel plans to Italy. Diane was not only super responsive and friendly but she was also very knowledgeable in the cities we were considering in Italy. She travels frequently to several destinations each year. I think this is a huge advantage when she makes recommendations on travel plans, excursions and hotels.

We gave Diane tentative dates and cities and she was able to quickly put together several options. Everything was handled with exceptional attention to detail.

Our vacation was absolutely perfect. Every hotel check-in, train ride, flight, car service, and excursion went perfectly! Her list of preferred vendors and hotels can not be beat.

We absolutely recommend Diane's services to any one looking for the ultimate vacation experience.

The best trip of our lives!
Diane planned our first trip to Spain and we couldn't have done it without her. She was detailed, quick, and answered every question I had. She planned our whole trip, which included transportation to/from airport, train rides, hotels, and excursions. Diane was fantastic and I highly recommend her.

Above-and-beyond every step of the way
I have known Diane for over 30 years and she is one of the most elegant people I know. So, luxury travel is right up her alley. However, I put our friendship to the test and asked her to find me a "City Slickers" style cattle drive. And she did not disappoint! I am just back from my week on the range and am a better person for it. Not only did she ply her network to find the best outfitter, but she made the initial contacts and set me up with top-shelf travel insurance. 'Cause you never know what's going to happen out there. Upon my return, I thought I left my iPad in airport security and Diane committed to help me out (and I quote) "I will do whatever it takes to make it right for you on my end". She is truly the best of the best, don't think twice about contacting her.

Diane Frisch responded:
Thanks so much, Joni - I am so glad that the trip was everything you had wished for! I am glad I could work my connections to find you the best guides to put this together, and that your IPad was so quickly located! Your review means the world to me and I am truly grateful.
