Amalfi Coast 2.jpg


Andrea came to me to plan a vacation to Italy and Portugal. Her husband is from Portugal and they were meeting her in-laws there to sightsee and visit family. Andrea was traveling with her husband and teenage son. She needed to make the trip fun for her son who (as she described), is an old soul, as well as making it interesting and fun for her and her husband whose primary interests are food and wine, museums, and the outdoors. 



We were able to combine their interests to design a trip that was perfect for all. Their private experiences included a food walking tour in Rome, visiting the Vatican, the Colosseum, and Pompeii, and exploring the Amalfi Coast (by boat and by land). In Portugal we mixed in family time with some spectacular activities such as a walking food tour of Lisbon and visiting a medieval walled city. They also spent time in Porto and the majestic Douro Valley.


"I know in the age of the internet and AirBnB people think they can do it all on their own, and I have, but I can tell you it was nothing compared to what we experienced working with Distinct Vacations. We originally booked before COVID and had to delay the trip 2 years. I had to do NOTHING except say when we wanted to go and everything was rebooked, all credits were handled, flights rebooked, etc. Had I done it myself, it would have been tons of emails and a lot of frustration. Not to mention that everything that was scheduled as part of our trip was excellent. Everyone from transfer drivers to tour guides, everyone was TOP NOTCH, friendly, kind, and went out of their way to make sure we had a vacation of a lifetime. And it was. We did a two-week trip, Italy and Portugal, and I cannot wait to book my next trip. We are all so spoiled now, and in love with both Portugal and Italy. If you want a hassle-free trip, that is 5 stars all the way, work with Belkys and Distinct Vacations - you will NOT regret it. We found her via word of mouth and if anyone asks, I tell them to call, it is well worth it!!!"
