“My husband and I used Diane to help us plan our honeymoon in Italy after a recommendation from my uncle — and boy am I glad we did because we truly had the trip of a lifetime. We were skeptical to use an agent; we had never used one before on our travels and figured we could easily plan any trip we wanted to take. But after our first phone call with Diane we knew we made the right decision. Planning the trip then became fun, exciting and incredibly easy. We gave Diane our itinerary, budget and interests, and she took care of the rest. Our itinerary across Milan, Lake Como, Cinque Terra, Tuscany and Florence was simply spectacular. Transportation between towns was easy — having the itinerary all on our app it felt like we were just whisked away from one adventure to the next. We were especially impressed with the lodging Diane had booked for us at each place. I can’t count the times we shouted DIANE HAS DONE IT AGAIN! At every place we checked in to! Communication leading up to the trip and even during was a breeze — she was on a trip while ours was going on, so i especially found it helpful and thoughtful that she was able to communicate and help us with anything while abroad. The last thing I’ll say is working with Diane has made us want to travel so much more — working with someone you trust when planning travel makes a huge difference. We can’t wait to get some more time off so we can give her a call for our next trip.” Francie – Denver, CO
" A huge Thank you to Diane Barron. We had limited time and wanted to see as much of Ireland as possible. She did not disapoint! All accomodations were beautiful and comfortable. We had absolutely zero issues the entire trip and enjoyed our adventure immensely. We could not have done it without her." Lisa - Seattle, WA

"Fabulous vacation to Portugal: Porto, Douro Valley, Coimbra, Lisbon and San Miguel in The Azores. Thank you Diane Barron and Premier Escapes for your expert advice along with that of your Portugal specialists. Hotels were great, tours were well selected to meet our interests and that pre-programmed GPS for the car was a lifesaver!" Mary - Kirkland, WA
