Paul Gauguin- Tahiti/French Polynesia "Excellent- Stefany Ceccato was very easy to work with. She answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly. I’m sure I asked too many since this was my first cruise and using Stefany. I sent emails and she sent them back the same day or the next morning. I would not hesitate to use Stefany again for my next cruise or trip."
Tahiti/French Polynesia "Easy to work with over email and phone. Offers first hand experience planning a trip."
Tahiti/French Polynesia "Stefany was very professional and efficient."
British Virgin Islands "Perfect trip- After a brief conversation with Stefany she was able to identify the perfect location for our anniversary trip. She listened to us both and was able to plan for us a trip of a lifetime. She is professional, organized, and amazing at what she does."
“My trip to the Italian lakes and Venice with Stefany-I consider myself to be an experienced traveler. I have been to Italy twice and many other places in Europe. I traveled to Asia, to Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Thailand. I also traveled to Palau and Truk Lagoon scuba diving. I have been in many South and Central American countries. I know the Caribbean Sea like it's my neighborhood. I planned all of this travel without a Travel Advisor. But my last trip has changed me. The experiences, the accommodations and the dining in Italy were much better than I could plan and execute. Stefany holds the keys to Italy. She opened doors that I could not have found on my own.”
"Outstanding travel advisor! I have worked with Stefany for several years. She is outstanding! Everything she has booked for us has been perfect. She is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to help her clients. She finds outstanding hotels and books really wonderful tours. She then follows up after the trip to de-brief about the trip. She found us the loveliest hotel for our recent Rome trip and worked with the tour folks in Rome to plan great tours. She even booked dining reservations at the hotel for us. She booked a France river cruise for us a year before the pandemic started and booked the pre-cruise for us as well. When the tours for the pre-cruise (scheduled but the river cruise company) were not as advertised, she worked tirelessly to have that portion of the pre-cruise reimbursed. I love it that she and her company can follow your flight and help you in the event your flight is canceled and they are available for emergency situations when you are traveling. We always get Stefany to plan our trips."
“Trip of a lifetime to Italy - Stefany did such an outstanding job on planning this trip! It was simply perfection! Everything and I do mean everything, was top notch. The hotels, buses, restaurants and excursions were beyond my expectations! It was very obvious that Stefany went way beyond the call of duty regarding the research that she must have done to locate the best of the best! Having Stefany and her husband, Daniele accompany us on the trip truly made it that more special and intimate! It did not feel as though we were on a trip with a group of unknown companions but, a group of friends! I took my niece on this trip and it was her first European trip. She loved it! Her father said that all she talks about is her trip to Italy! They want to go next year and of course Stefany will arrange all of the details. I have referred her to so many people even seat partners on flights! She has such a passion for what she does and it really shows! Thank you again, Stefany!! :)”
“Over and Beyond- Stefany is well known to my husband and I as a travel specialist and friend. In the past she has planned 2 trips for us. She herself was on a trip out of the country and went above and beyond to coordinate a stay for us at Hotel Bennett through the contact there. It is always a pleasure to work with Stefany."
“Italy Trip! Stefany was absolutely wonderful to work and travel with! She was so thorough in her planning and making sure all the guests were taken care of. Stefany made traveling so easy, care free, and fun! I would recommend Stefany to anyone who is interested in planning a luxury international trip!”
“Zurich/Lucerne-Excellent as always”
SCOTT & FRAN WILLIAMS
“Italy 2022 Stefany is very informative and quick to answer questions. She set up a wonderful trip with lots of exciting adventures. She has lots of insider knowledge of Italy which was very helpful on our trip.”
“Italy Adventure- Stefany was awesome! This is our 2nd trip planned by Stefany. Both were in our top 5 favorite trips. Stefany is very attentive and genuinely interested in a seamless, excellent trip for her clients.” JOHN AND JODY VARVARIS
“A superb personal service experience- A very efficient personal service and excellent choice of itinerary. From start to finish, our booking arrangements were handled in a very helpful, professional and pleasant manner by Stefany. Great advice, sending us to great places and planning a fantastic holiday with memories to last a lifetime.”
"We have now been working with Stefany for about two years. Our first trip that she planned for us, three weeks in Europe: Prague, Cesky, Vienna, Dubrovnik, Split, sailing, Santorini, was one of the best trips we have taken with our daughters and in celebration of our 30th anniversary. This time, there was no planning for what I needed. My wife and I decided to spend a long weekend in Miami Beach and were completely unhappy with the hotel that we reserved for our stay in Miami. The morning after our first night in the hotel I called Stefany to check if she could help me find a better hotel in Miami Beach considering the long Easter Weekend. She came through with an amazing hotel, the Faena in Miami Beach, including all the amenities that come with Virtuoso membership and an upgrade of the room. It completely changed the outlook of the weekend and my wife calls it one of her best short-stay vacations. As I told Stefany, she saved my 'bacon'. I recommend Stefany to anyone."
"Stefany was amazing to work with. She made planning our 10yr anniversary seamless. We did not have to worry about booking our room, dinner reservations or any extra activities during our stay in Naples. Her attention to detail and just giving us that sense of peace was awesome! Cannot wait for her to plan our next trip! If you have not worked with Stefany before please do yourself a favor and have her take care of you. You are in good hands! We love her!"
“Phenomenal Attention to Detail! What was supposed to be a simple Montreal hotel booking and a few restaurant recommendations turned into a complex and ever- changing set of circumstances. Conditions for border crossings, unresponsive restaurants and our own discomfort with changing regulations, created a situation that had Stefany seeking advice, clarification, and recommendations. She did this with incredible calm, persistence, expertise and kindness. We had a marvelous, relaxing and very rich experience Thanks to Stefany’s exquisite professionalism, genuine concern and ability to get all the information necessary to assure we were able to visit this lovely city in a time of such uncertainty. An irony is that Quebec just added additional restrictions. We are thrilled to have had this lovely adventure when we did!”
Barcelona and Costa Brava- “Excellent -Every detail was covered. Local guide and driver were superb.”
Orient Express “Great. She was very on top of things and always very kind. She got us wonderful rooms and offered us lots of good options. She even looked up some local stores and restaurants for me.”
“Stellar! Stefany was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was prompt in her responses, thorough in her recommendations and extremely knowledgeable, attentive and candid in her efforts to assure that we had a wonderful experience in Charleston. To boot, she made all our arrangements for our two stays in Columbia SC as well our rental car, which meant we had our trip planned with very little muss or fuss. We are very excited to have met Stefany and are looking forward to working with her for travel going forward.”
Italy vacation- “Stefany was awesome! She handled everything promptly and was always helpful. Her knowledge of Italy made our trip wonderful! She is a 10 out of 10!!”
“Stefany is my travel advocate! Stefany is great. We asked to vary from the Rocky Mountaineer tour itinerary and she made it happen. We flew into Moab (rather than Salt Lake City) two days early. Our tours in Moab were beautiful and would not have happened without her help. All of our arrangements were flawless.”
Bear Camp- “She was awesome! Her connecting and networking skills are very good as she made all the arrangements to this far and away place. The fact that she was unfamiliar with Great Alaska and how to get there did not stop her.”
“Stefany is a talented advisor and she does fabulous work! I had not traveled in four years and I chose a difficult and off the beaten path as my destination. Stefany put the trip together for me taking care of all the details! I had a very memorable and perfect trip! I am planning another trip and it will be a joy to plan it with her!”
“Outstanding Stefany! A true pleasure! Stefany reached out to me on LinkedIn and I have never used a travel concierge before. She makes travel more pleasant, has great attention to detail, is very responsive and truly cares”
Crystal river cruise- “It was great, she was very helpful and prompt. Always available to answer my questions.”
Very Patient- “Stefany was so pleasant to work with to plan our trip to Savannah. That was not our original place to go and Stefany was extremely patient while we changed our minds several times. We celebrated a 50th birthday at an amazing hotel and restaurants that Stefany set up for us. We would definitely recommend and have Stefany help us plan trips in the future. Thank you Stefany”
San Francisco- “Stefany was a joy to work with again for our San Francisco + wine country excursion. The bike tour across Golden Gate bridge was really fun. Can’t wait for the next adventure!”
“Still pinching myself!!! We couldn’t have imagined a more magical Italy experience! Words can’t accurately describe how amazing Stefany was to work with. She spent an hour on the phone with us asking questions: our goals, what we wanted to do, what we like/dislike, etc. and discussed our must-haves. It wasn’t until after she learned about us that we discussed our budget. I can’t stress how valuable that was; it showed us that she cared about our experience and creating a trip that we would never forget. She kept in contact with us leading up to the trip and was very responsive. Every single detail was flawlessly executed including her own personal touches (like remembering our Anniversary!) Our transfers, drivers and excursions were top notch and checked every box on our must-have list. We loved every minute of our trip and it all began with choosing the perfect travel coordinator. Thank you, Stefany for making our dream of visiting Italy a reality in a way that we never could have imagined was possible!”
“Stefany was wonderful to work with she was always extremely responsive and always helpful. She did everything she could to help recommend the best places to stay and see. She made our first Europe trip one we will never forget. Everything was perfect…. Bravo.”
“Rome and Tuscany group organized by Stefany Di Manno Ceccato-Stefany is professional and friendly in her communications. She is prompt and courteous in her handling of all questions and concerns. Stefany dealt with any incidentals that occurred during our group trip and communicated effectively with us. Our trip to Italy was everything we were told and more with some special surprises.”
“Fantastic Advisor- Stefany did a wonderful job planning our Italy trip. She thought of every last detail and helped us create many wonderful memories. It was a tremendous advantage having someone who could speak the language guide us through our adventures.”
“Thank you for a memorable trip to Spain. We want to take this opportunity and thank each and every one of you for making this experience as amazing as it was. Your warmth, understanding, patience and support made a huge difference throughout the entire vacation and beyond. It was an absolute pleasure spending this 12 day vacation touring in Spain and we look forward to having you plan Mr.’s upcoming 60th birthday next year. Stefany and Daniele – your calmness and energy, your ability to deal with any change request that we made if in advance or on the fly made this experience unforgettable, the level of service you extended to all of us is remarkable, THANK YOU!”
London- “First class all the way!”
SCOTT & FRAN
“Constantly ahead of the game. I’ve now booked two major European trips through Stefany. Her detailed planning on my behalf made the complicated itinerary go smoothly and effortlessly. She has introduced me to private tours and skip the line tickets, huge time savers. And of course there is always her personal touch. Welcoming letters at each hotel and a welcome home gift upon return. A total pro, give her your dreams and she’ll have you waking and walking there.”
“Above and Beyond. Stefany has been just amazing to work with on planning a very cool adventure to Portugal and Malta. She knows all the lux hotels, set up connecting flights and transfers and cool adventures while there. This is my second time using her for our travels! She even helped me with a last minute hotel issue in the US unrelated to the trip just because she is awesome!”
“Outstanding! Perfect! Very Enjoyable trip planned and coordinated by DMC Travel Tailor! My wife and I were blessed to experience the Perfect trip to France due to the guidance, coordination and arrangements made by DMC Travel Tailor.
We traveled to France for 14 days including a Uniworld River Cruise from Lyon to Avignon in between a personalized 3 1/2 days in Paris and 1 1/2 days following the cruise in Avignon. Stefany, the Dream Travel Designer was outstanding in making recommendations and suggestions as well as arrangements that met our personal taste. The River Cruise was perfect and included tours that were recommended by DMC Travel Tailor and a few that were coordinated uniquely for our small group within the cruise. The hotel arranged for us by DMC Travel Tailor in Paris was beautiful, perfectly located, with a stunning view of Paris! Thank you DMC Travel Tailor for making our Perfect trip a reality!”
JOHN & JODY VARVARIS
“Outstanding trip and Fantastic Agent (Stefany) A+++++. We have wanted to go to Italy for years and finally did it. We worked with Stefany who helped us plan this trip down to the smallest detail and it was perfect. We had a truly amazing 2 weeks in Italy and we owe this all to her planning and help. We had the perfect worry-free trip because of her. We had a very small issue come up part way thru the trip and Stefany took care of it for us that same day (even being 5,000 miles away). We were so impressed. You will not find a better travel agent to work with than her. We would recommend her to anyone and we will definitely use her services again in the future. WE thank DMC Travel Tailor and Stefany for a perfect trip throughout Italy that we will remember always.”
JOHN & ANNETTE D'ACQUISTO
“Stefany is wonderful! She is attentive and knowledgeable. She always responded to my questions very quickly–sometimes even late in the evening. She planned a once-in-a-lifetime experience on a Uniworld river cruise with a much beloved Charleston area chef. It was a fabulous experience! She and her husband also went on the cruise which made it even more special. She is very customer service oriented. At every destination ( as we had her schedule a pre-cruise and post-cruise for us), there was a sweet letter from her and her husband. They even sent us a thank- you gift which arrived the day after we arrived back from our trip with treats to remind us of France. She carefully researched the activities we wanted to do. She was meticulous in arranging our trip. We will definitely have her arrange our travel plans in the future. In fact. all of us in the Charleston group asked her, “where are we going next?” She and her husband call themselves the bucket-list fillers and they certainly are!”
“30th Anniversary Italy DREAM Trip-Florence and Amalfi Coast-Working with Stefany was great! She is sweet and thorough, asked us lots of questions about how we like to travel, what we like to do, the types of hotels we prefer, and was able to accommodate both of us equally. The tours she set up for us were perfect, the guides knowledgeable, the hotels exquisite, and I don’t know how she pulled this off, but the weather spectacular! 😉 I’m sure we could have done our own planning, but Stefany’s knowledge of the area and expertise in travel and tourism made it all the more special and is a trip I’ll remember for a lifetime.”
MICHELLE BASTIAN RICHARDS
“Stefany was amazing. Her team prepared an awesome itinerary. The private tour day in the Burgundy region included a lunch stop at winery that was one of the best meals of the trip. The hotels she booked in Lyon and Beaune were over the top great. I will be using her for my travel going forward. Could not be happier with my experience here!”
“Thoughtful and seamless. It was terrific working with Stefany. She was proactive, constantly in communication, took care of the littlest detail and infinitely patient. Every leg of our travel had somebody waiting to greet us and get us through the travel mazes. When we reached our accommodation there was always a personal letter from Stefany greeting us. When we arrived home, there was a gift awaiting us, reminding us of our superb holiday. Stefany should get a special recognition or award for dealing with the Uniworld cruise director, who clearly was having trouble coping. She will get my business again!”
“Stefany was the most attentive travel agent I’d ever worked with. No detail was too small for her to respond to immediately.”
“Thumbs up for Stefany! Very easy to work with, punctual, professional, made an effort to understand her clients and went beyond what was expected to give a personal touch to the trip.”
“Stefany was great – effective, creative and responsive. We look forward to using her services again.”
SCOTT & FRAN WILLIAMS
“Stefany was great to work with. She paid attention to all details, no matter how small, to ensure that our trip was spectacular. While on the cruise, she paid attention to everything that was going on with her group and worked to quickly resolve any travel issues.”
“Rhone river cruise-Stefany is very courteous, kind, always available to help.”
“Stefany recommended a great tour for us based on her very good listening skills. She was totally conscientious in dealing with the before and after of our trip.”
“Excellent Experience. Stefany made both planning and experiencing our vacation wonderful. She provided options based upon our preferences so we could make choices but not be overwhelmed. We definitely felt our trip was personalized just for us. All details of our trip were covered which made for a relaxing and stress free experience. Stefany’s kind hospitality “touches” made for an “ahhh” experience throughout our trip. We are not normally big travelers but Stefany made our trip so great we believe more travels, arranged by Stefany, are in our future.”
“BEST part of our trip!”
“Stefany helped us plan a 9-day Luxury Mediterranean cruise and a 5-day extra stay in Italy. Stefany was always incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about what we were wanting and what types of accommodations and services best suited our tastes. She followed up if she didn’t have answers for us and recommended some great things.
One of the best parts of our 3-week vacation was the last 5 days that we spent on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Stefany planned the whole thing for us, from the car service pick up, tours and hotels. It was one of the best parts of our trip! Service was spot on! We also enjoyed our little cards and welcome gifts at each different place we went to.
I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to travel for any type of business or pleasure.”
LISA RICHART-HERNANDEZ & GEORGE HERNANDEZ
“Best Service. Stefany was wonderful, professional, attentive to details and my needs. I would highly recommend her.”
“I’d give Stefany 10 thumbs up if I had 10 thumbs : )
I’m pretty particular and therefore I often hesitate about turning over the reigns when it comes to planning. Stefany took the time to get to know our individual and group needs and desires, so I trusted she was finding the best options for us. I was able to comfortably take a more hands-off approach, which made my life and schedule less stressful. Her attention to detail helped the trip run smoothly and her thoughtfulness showed she really cared about us and our happiness. Work with Stefany to create your next dream adventure with ease.”
Working with Stefany was a delight. She went above and beyond with her expertise. So willing to go that extra mile to be sure that you experience your dream vacation. Summing up Stefany is amazing!”
“Simply the best. We have worked with Stefany Di Manno Ceccato for all of our business and personal travel plans. She is incredibly knowledgeable, organized, thorough, and always goes above and beyond to help her clients. She provides excellent suggestions during the trip planning process; whether you are looking for a structured day to day itinerary or just some recommendations for those who are a little more spontaneous with their plans. She is always incredibly responsive by call, text or email and each interaction is always welcomed with warmth and a smile. We highly recommend her to all of our family, friends, and clients.”
ASHLEY SOCKOL AND JASON PRUGER
“Our trip to Prague and Vienna turned out to be beyond our expectations all customized just for us!! Each leg, each touch point, each adventure, felt like it was planned with attention to detail with regards to our needs. The various excursions, private walking tours and castle tours made the best use of time to make for a very memorable vacation. We had no worries that we would be greeted and directed in a timely and professional manner, that the accommodations were superb, and that we had been guided by someone who knew the culture and history of each country.
There is nothing we would have changed. Just an outstanding trip we will always remember.
We would definitely use you again for future travel plans.”
“I recently had the pleasure of traveling to the Amalfi coast. We had enlisted both Stefany Di Manno Ceccato, and Daniele Ceccato of DMC Travel Tailor to help us come up with a few very unique ideas while we were visiting the Amalfi coast. They had proposed the idea of chartering a private yacht for the day. We really liked the idea. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical as I thought the price would be astronomical. It turns out it was not! It was super affordable, and definitely over delivered on many levels. DMC Travel Tailor had found a private yacht that launched out of Salerno, took us up the gorgeous coast, and returned the same day. The Captain of the boat, Pasquale, and his wife were wonderful hosts. They were warm and engaging. And, phenomenal cooks. The Captain was so kind, and extremely interesting. He is a classical guitarist, and, a professor of music and art. Most importantly, he was a very astute Nautical Captain. He grew up around boats, and always wanted to do exactly what he was doing in hosting our group. We felt like we were in very capable hands. Upon arrival, they greeted us warmly. The Captain went over a few safety points, and we were off. We moved through the water at a pleasant pace. They prepared a wonderful, healthy, flavor filled lunch. The pace of the day was very relaxed, yet, had direction. Being I am a hands-on person, the Captain let me drive the boat all the way back down the coast. Upon arriving back to port just before Sundown, the timing was perfect. We walked around Salerno for an hour or so, while the Captain and his wife were preparing our dinner. It was incredible. A great ending to an already exquisite day. This was our first experience with DMC, we will definitely be contacting them for our next adventure! Both Stefany and Daniele were kind, professional, and fun. We wish them nothing but the best, and will certainly recommend our friends to enlist their services on their next “bucket list” trip.”
“Ms. Stefany Di Manno Ceccato has worked via a network that we were part of flying us nearly five years starting in 2011 thru 2016. During that time, she distinguished herself as being an excellent flight attendant with superior service and attention.
Stefany frequently went above and beyond the call of duty, and helped make our journeys comfortable and enjoyable. She is always helpful, courteous and reliable.
I would highly recommend Stefany as a private flight attendant, and other roles in which she can use her vast travel knowledge and experience.”
“I have known Stefany Di Manno Ceccato since 2004. We worked together in a client-broker relationship in New York city real estate. Stefany has always performed above expectations and has a keen ability to understand our needs, communicate clearly, find the absolute right opportunity and deliver the deal – all while managing any issues with relative ease. She was part of the largest success story in the company’s history in coordinating the highest grossing unit in the chain. Her client dedication and ethics are superior and I would highly recommend her work to potential clients.”

“Stefany brings an enthusiasm to her work that brightens a room! She is always very professional, open to feedback and eager to learn. I admire her creativity!”
“I had the pleasure of working with Stefany in a multiple of various roles including; sales, marketing and business development roles. Besides being a joy to work with, she is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. Her keen business insight and in-depth knowledge of improving operations while leading tactical marketing activities will enable her to impact any bottom line.
She really cares about her clients and she ensures a great deliverable, offers clear branding and strategic insights, and is filled with creative ideas that have real application.”
