• New Client to Italy & Portugal

    The honeymoon that Derek planned for us went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined.

    We started off our honeymoon in Italy where we were welcomed by a friendly private driver and taken to our beautiful central hotel overlooking the river in Florence.

    The room was absolutely gorgeous and regardless of how early or late it was I couldn’t stop heading to the balcony just to take in the amazing scenery.

    The amenities left in the room were also a beautiful touch. Private wine tour and an Italian village excursion was unforgettable.

     

    Followed by that we went to Naples where we were welcomed by a private driver that took us to Positano.

    We were welcomed at our luxury hotel hotel and we’re assigned an “hacienda” type room with white and blue colors, and a terrace overlooking over the colorful town which made the “Italian/Sea” theme feel even more real.

     

    In Portugal we ventured off to Sintra for a few days where we had an organized tee time for my husband and I got to relax by the pool.

    We had a welcome amenity provided of champagne and local sweets.

     

    Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, our last days in downtown Lisbon were so nice.

    The luxury hotel Derek confirmed for us in Lisbon is recently remodeled and we received a congratulations letter from Derek for our honeymoon,

    followed by more local pastries and a bottle of Port the next day.

     

    All of our drivers were wonderful, the amenities were great, the hotels were beautiful and luxurious, and we had the most memorable and fun time.

    Thanks Derek for organizing everything from start to finish, for your amazing recommendations, and for making our honeymoon truly unforgettable.

     

    I highly recommend Derek to help anybody plan their luxury travel getaway!

    I have recommended Derek over and over again.

    Love working with him and planning trips. Derek's recommendations are always right on!

    His comments on accommodations is very insightful down to the nuances of each location.

     

    During recent trip Derek had us stay at three truly wonderful 5 star resorts & locations.

    However his choice in Mykonos was even a step higher than the others.

    The staff was extra attentive and personal. Made us feel like family!

     

    Would trust him on any trip in future.

     

    The Avenue Two Travel mobile app is wonderful and so handy

    even be able to use it offline on the go is nice and useful.

     

    His assistance before, during and after trip is beyond expectations .

    Thank you for a trip of a lifetime & the Greek wine!

    New Clients to Italy!

    Highly recommend Derek Schemonitz!!! Our recent very much delayed honeymoon to Italy was an absolute dream. First, Derek was the calming force when we had to push it back not once, but twice due to COVID, and I’m so glad we decided to keep our plans because it was definitely worth the wait.

     

    When we decided to go to Italy, I talked to a few travel agents that had “standard tours” set up, but my husband and I really wanted to customize a trip to what we wanted and that was when Derek at Avenue Two Travel was recommended to us. When I spoke to Derek, we only had an idea of some of the cities and places we really wanted to see and the type of hotels we typically enjoy staying at.

     

    Derek really listened to all of our wants and preferences and was able to take what little info we gave him and curate a dream two-week Italy vacation for us that I know was not easy as there were many, many moving parts! Our trip included a stay in Rome, Positano, Florence, Venice, and Bellagio on Lake Como; with private tours arranged at each destination.

     

    Derek was worth every penny and more!

    Grazie millie, Derek!

    We will be in touch for our next vacation!

    Hi Derek. We had a really nice time that was the right blend of activity and relaxation.

    Everything that you set up for us really made our vacation that much more stress free and organized.

    The resort was beautiful and going during a slow period proved to be a good decision as we were able to carve out parts of the resort that gave us some seclusion and privacy.

     

    I’ll leave a glowing recommendation for you on Facebook, you really made yourself available to get this trip booked and provided a great service.

     

    We are very interested in booking a trip to St. Lucia next year with your assistance.

    So we will be in touch to start looking at next trip.

     

    Thanks for everything Derek.

    I will ALWAYS come to you for trip guidance, recommendations and reservations.

    There is no way anyone can do the same by searching themselves.

    We had the perfect day in the town of Mykonos. We ate dinner here at the hotel and it was great.

    Property is beautiful and staff were so kind.

    Now as for Santorini, Canaves is perfect and well worth the price. This place is jaw dropping gorgeous!!!

    We did the 8m mile hike from Oia to Thira, soooo beautiful.

    I will say Greece was one of our favorite trips we have taken.

    You planned a beautiful trip!

    Thank you again for all of the time you put in planning our trip, it was really great!

    Honeymoon planning during a pandemic can be stressful, to say the least.

    Derek helped us plan not one, but three separate honeymoons after the first two destinations imposed travel restrictions.

    He took the stress out of planning and the 3rd time was definitely a charm.

    I recommend his services to anyone wanting to travel!

    Derek has planned two wonderful trips for us! The first was to Italy and it was absolutely perfect from start to finish.

    The hotels, tours, and entire itinerary were all flawless. All travel was pre-arranged.... all executed quite smoothly! A complete pleasure.

    Our second trip was to be to Hawaii. Given the situation with COVID-19,

    Derek is now advising us of all options. It is so nice to know that he will be guiding us and taking care of all modifications.

    Thanks so much Derek for your expertise and timely responses to all questions. Job well done!!!!

    Great trip - lots of sun and hiking - only a brief morning of cloudy weather. We really like the resort in Phoenix - we'd go back there.

    The one in Tucson was great too, but Phoenix was really nice.

    Flight back was no problem, and the car situation straightened itself out nicely.

    We got a Rogue which worked well throughout the trip - drove about 400 miles total.

    We are now thinking of Canada and wondering about the COVID-19 stuff. Thanks!

    New Clients to St. Lucia

    St. Lucia was so beautiful. The weather was absolutely perfect every day - a steady 80 degrees with a constant breeze.

    We enjoyed a lot of time laying on the beach and by the pool. We didn't get in to anything very active on the island, but simply enjoyed relaxing in the sun.

    The resort was nice! Thank you so much for your help getting us set for our trip.

    In the end it was very relaxing and we enjoyed the crystal clear waters and relaxing in the sun.

    We certainly look forward to working with you for any other trips in the future!

    Everything was amazing on our Germany adventure. Your guides were excellent. Peter in Munich was very pleasant and gracious.

    He presented a lot of detail that others that I have spoken with since the trip had never heard before. Great choice.

     

    Thank you for arranging things and making my life worry free.

    We had a great time in Norway!

     

    The hotel in Bergen was fantastic, and the private full day tour of the fjords was great (off season, no crowds) and the food was fabulous.

     

    We probably should have spent another day or 2 in Oslo, but we just didn’t have the time

     

    As always, a great trip through you!

    New Clients to Greece

    We absolutely loved Greece and its food and its people. Better than Italy!

    We should have booked many more days with Olga and Johnny. They were incredible. We hope they can visit us in the US.

    At some point, we’d like to do islands and see Corfu too, maybe Thessaloniki. Again,

    Olga made me understand so much more about ancient history, worship, music and art than any of 3 prior visits to Italy.

    Thanks for choosing this company for us!

    Happy New Year! Thanks again!

    They spoke very well, and were patient with the fussy kids and late arrivals.

    Very knowledgeable and we learned a lot.

    Derek is the very best travel advisor. He has arranged 9 trips for us and each trip has been excellent and without any problems due to his great expertise.

    I would not use any other travel advisor but Derek and would very highly recommend him to other travelers.

    He is very friendly, knowledgeable and professional.

    He has first hand knowledge of many of the places that we traveled to.

    He will surely is a number one travel advisor for years to come.

    The feast in Bobby’s family hometown was a highlight for us. Cefalu was beautiful and the hotel was a gem (I could have stayed there for a week!).

    I loved Taormina and wish we had another day there (we spent the last night at the opera with a performance of Carmen in the Ancient Theatre…that was special!

    The Villa Ducale had a spectacular view and lovely staff, rooms are looking a little tired though.

    Overall it was a great trip!

    It was fantastic and you did an amazing job, as usual.
