“There is no substitute for a personalized travel advisory service. The travelers I assist would not have it any other way. Exhausting internet searches or phone calls to a distant call center is not the way to plan your leisure time when lifetime memories are at stake. A personal experience with expertise and accountability is what the sophisticated, discerning traveler deserves. As a travel advisor I look for ways to constantly meet my client’s expectations while delivering value."
DORIA GOMEZ OWNER / AFFILIATE
Since 1990, Doria has represented and consulted many clients with the creation and planning of the most memorable times of their lives. It has been a passion since a young age when she captured the wanderlust of travel. She has travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean.
Doria listens carefully to her clients and then crafts every itinerary based on their needs and expectations. Doria can arrange an independent tour to any part of the world – if she has not been there, she’s likely arranged plans for someone to go there and either way, will know and research the perfectly planned vacation. From an excursion to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, a private tour guide on the Great Wall of China, or a culinary experience in Rome, Italy, Doria can help you get there with accountability and confidence that your lifetime memories deserve.
Doria is a native of Tampa and of Cuban and Italian descent. She is involved in several community organizations and is proud to be co-founder of Dalia’s Reach, Inc. – a not for profit organization that focuses on the safety of students on college and university campuses.
