Marie Bernardo

I've worked for non-profit and government entities for years, a volunteer to local community groups in the Bay Area. My love for travel made me change my career path to working with people who aspire to see the world.

Since I started in the travel industry, I've always been excited to hear from clients who are thrilled to just go and see what's out there! My trips to different parts of the world will be passed on to anyone and everyone I meet.

I'm always open to share my trips, dreams and discoveries with you!

Let me assist you in making memories all over the world!


Debra & Tony

Debra and Tony LOVE to travel! Their love for exploring the world led them to become travel agents so that they can help others explore the world, too. Together, Debra and Tony have been to 28 countries. (Debra has been to 45 countries. She started her travels a bit before Tony, but Tony is trying to catch up!) Their all-time favorite trip, so far, was a safari in Africa. (Ask Debra to show you the absolutely incredible picture that she took of a leopard in a tree.) Their favorite cruises have been the Baltic capitals, Alaska, the Panama Canal and a 21-day cruise from South America (Chile) all the way to San Francisco, California. Oh, and if you haven't been to Iceland yet, you may want to consider adding it to your list. (Debra and Tony love Iceland so much that anytime they fly or cruise to Europe, they try to route through Iceland!)

In addition to their personal travels, Debra and Tony regularly attend travel conferences, seminars and webinars in order to keep up-to-date in regard to what's happening in the travel industry.
Debra and Tony both retired from careers in law enforcement. If you are active or retired LEO, please let them know. They love to take care of their brothers and sisters in blue.
