If you want to experience the food, history, art, architecture, nature, and culture of a destination, Diamond Travel of Capistrano Beach is the agency for you. I plan custom travel, with concierge service, within your budget.

Diamond Travel clients fully experience a destination rather than just having Instagram moments with thousands of other travelers.

Whether you are planning a tour of your favorite European country, a romantic or family beach vacation, a trek to the Outback, an African Safari, or a relaxing cruise for a couple or a crowd, I will create a custom itinerary that meets your dreams and stays within your budget.

I have traveled extensively throughout the world and plan each trip as if it were my own. One of my favorite destinations is Italy. The art, culture, food, and sunshine are as magical as its people. I`d love the opportunity to take the stress out of planning the trip of your dreams!

Ellen is amazing! I have traveled on escorted trips with her, had her plan trips for me and highly recommended her to family and friends who were also very pleased. Ellen uses great care in working with me and my husband on travel plans, budget and tours with great outcomes. Her knowledge of places to go, how to get there, what to see, do and eat make for the most wonderful vacations. Ellen_`s knowledge of the European countries (and especially Italy) have made us use her services for land and cruises, private and public tours and unique trips to less traveled locations even in big cities. She always works within our budget and suggested many ways to save and spend depending on our tastes and preferences. She has also planned trips for us to US destinations with great knowledge and care. I highly recommend her...she is the only travel advisor I would use!
