Growing up overseas, adventure travel is second nature to me and I’ve always preferred to plan and book my own itinerary. Doria has definitely changed that. Our stay in Belize was perfection, and she made sure everything was seamless and every step of the way was taken care of. The whole family had a blast, and we were able to truly relax and unwind because everything had already been taken care of. Thank you, Doria for the excellent experience! Anthony Homer

Doria, our honeymoon in Hawaii was amazing! It was the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure which is what we wanted. Thank you for all of your suggestions and for making it an unforgettable trip. Jorge and Maria Esbona


Doria Gomez made my lifelong dream trip to Italy a reality! Her attention to every last detail – private cars, first class trains, phenomenal boutique hotels, balloon rides, cooking classes and private tours was phenomenal! I have and will continue to recommend you to all of my traveling friends. Can’t wait to go on my next trip! Thank you Doria! Mercedes Angell


Doria has been our travel consultant for over five years. She began by booking our flights and ground transportation every year to Colorado both in the summer and the winter. She convinced us to do something different in the summer of 2008 and booked our party of seven to New York City. We had an amazing trip with wonderful memories! When we were looking for something again for Thanksgiving 2009, Doria suggested Atlantis … once again a wonderful vacation. I highly recommend working with Doria and Travel by Appointment. We are planning a huge group to Alaska this summer and will look to her to organize our entire group! Ken & Jan Barkett


We’ve had the pleasure of working with Doria for 25 years. Her vast experience and capabilities have enabled us to enjoy our worldwide travels without trepidation. To us, Doria is a travel partner, not an agent. She understands our preferences and, consequently, designs and implements our travel requirements accordingly. We would not consider traveling without her involvement. Jim & Jane Paladino


Travel by Appointment is a wonderful travel advisory that has assisted me on my many vacations throughout the years. In 2009, we took the most amazing trip to Machu Picchu. It was on my ‘bucket list’ but it was so confusing for us to put this trip together. Doria somehow made this so easy for us. She is wonderful and I would not go anywhere without her advice. Nick & Rose


We have had the pleasure of working with Doria on several travel destinations both domestic and international. Regardless of your destination you can rest assured that Doria will have each and every detail covered. Her keen level to detail is unmatched which makes for “worry free” travel. Another factor that differentiates Doria from other travel agents is her follow-up once your trip has concluded. She is consistent in gaining feedback from her clients to not only ensure your satisfaction but also share your experiences with other potential clients. This bank of knowledge that she has built is invaluable when you’re searching for a destination.

Our family vacation to Greece this summer was extremely memorable and thanks to Doria at Travel by Appointment, every detail was well thought out. Her willingness to listen to our thoughts in the planning process truly makes her exceptional at her job. If she didn’t “know” the answer, she would find out. Her passion for her work, shines through in the details and her ability to create wonderful memories! Lou and Kelly Varsames

castellon Everything went perfect, there was no glitch at all, all the transfers in Tahiti were as described to us and the people that greeted us were extremely courteous and helpful. It was everything we thought it would be and more. The transfers from airplane to hotels and the incredible Paul Gauguin cruise were excellent and went smoothly, thanks to your diligence in planning so many activities. Truly the trip of a lifetime on our 35th Anniversary…thank you Doria. Armando and Orquidea Castellon


Doria, it’s a pleasure having you as our travel consultant. Your vast experience and attention to every last detail help make our travels truly enjoyable. Thank you for all you do! Our sons were right on target when saying you are the best. Your customers for life… Jesus & Maria Rivero

Doria has planned a variety of trips for me. Sometimes they’ve been an incredible value; other times it has been a logistical challenge because of where I wanted to go and she met the challenge. I think she’s a great travel advisor and have often recommended her to my friends! Our best trip yet was to Nuremberg, Germany for the Christmas Festival. Vicki Wagner


Doria makes the difference not only selecting places to stay and activities to pursue more importantly when unexpected problems occur-like it happened to us- she immediately takes the initiative and works through the obstacles to resolve the painful issues of flight delays and/or cancellations. We have traveled all over the world for many years and have always called on Doria’s services and expertise. Without a doubt, she is a true professional and efficient like no one else.

Doria, I want to thank you for planning our honeymoon to Italy. We could not have done it without you! Our pre-planned tours were all fabulous and definitely made the experience over the top. Your advice for hotels, restaurants, shopping and places to see while in Rome, Florence and Venice were all phenomenal recommendations and made our honeymoon even more enjoyable having our days planned out. Our honeymoon was a once and a lifetime experience and you have made it one we will remember for a lifetime! Thank you for all you do! I see a wonderful anniversary trip in our future! Ryan and Stephanie Beaudoin


I first worked with Doria when she put together a fantastic trip to Italy for me. Her recommendations fit our needs and budget and every part of the trip went smoothly. Last year, Doria coordinated travel for 50 guests for my destination wedding in the Dominican Republic. We received several compliments from our guests on the great job she did coordinating all aspects of the travel and for making special arrangements with the resort.

I highly recommend Doria not only for her knowledge and suggestions, but also because she is a pleasure to work with. Sean & Lori Dunne


Thank you Doria for all your help in planning our accommodations for our destination wedding in Dominican Republic! You were great! We will definitely refer you to our friends and family! Donnie & Stacy Whitehead

Doria is very personable and easy to work with. She listens to your requirements and then works very hard to help you achieve those goals. As an Executive Assistant for several Fortune 500 Companies, I have had to plan many sales & marketing domestic and international meetings and have called on Doria for help in booking airline reservations, hotel, catering and entertainment activities. She does her research and then will help you plan all activities keeping your budget constraints in mind. I have also called on Doria for my personal travel and have received the same wonderful results. She does her research to ensure that you get the best value and have the best time of your life.
