About Deb Velli

Travel became a passion for me after flying with my dad, who was a private pilot and my family on numerous adventures near and far.

Whether staying in a luxury suite at the Eden Hotel in Rome or setting up a backpacking tent in the Beartooth Mountains of Montana, I’m happy either way. Marrying a native Italian who regularly loves to return “home”, has given me plenty of opportunity to take small groups to Italy or wherever there’s great food and wine! It’s all about getting to know the locals and experiencing the culture……. in exciting cities and far off the beaten track.

I’ve been a travel adviser for 35+ years and am a Destination Specialist for Italy, Scotland, Costa Rica, Belize as well as an Un-Cruise Adventurist and a Sandals and Beaches Specialist . Skiing, hiking and diving are a few of my other passions.

My travels have taken me from the highlands of Peru and the Cloud Forest in Ecuador to the lowlands of Scotland, the glaciers of Alaska to the Sea of Galilee, sailing in the Sea of Cortes, diving the reefs in the Turks and Caicos to hiking Haleakala Crater in Hawaii. I’d love to share my experiences and love of adventure with you by collaborating with you on YOUR next journey.
