Italy, Europe and Cruise Specialist

"La Dolce Vita " or "The Sweet Life". To me that describes what traveling is all about. My career began right after graduating from Johnson and Wales University with a degree in Travel-Tourism Management. After 16 years in this industry my desire to help clients fulfill their travel dreams is stronger than ever. Traveling creates experiences that are priceless and life long. Whether its sipping a cappuccino in the morning on your balcony as you sail into Venice or riding a camel between the pyramids in Egypt, these are memories to be treasured. My travels have taken me to Europe, Egypt, Canada, the US and the Caribbean. I have been on 25 cruises including Alaska, Europe, Panama Canal and the Caribbean. However my favorite destination to travel to and help clients with is Italy. I enjoy putting together customized packages for clients looking to experience Italy more independently. Maybe its researching your family tree and connecting with relatives whom you have never met. I have experienced this with my own family and as a result have made strong relationships. If its an escorted tour that you would prefer I can make that happen. I have created and escorted various church groups as well. Using our resources and preferred vendors I can help you create your next vacation and help you every step of the way. Vacations come in all sizes. Let me create something special for you! Sincerely Matt Balsamo

This trip was amazing, more than we could have ima
A year ago when we started to think of a family trip to celebrate our 50th anniversary, of course we thought of Matt as our travel agent.
We wanted an experience that would accommodate or family of 17, 8 adults and 9 kids.
We were thinking of an all inclusive but were not sure not sure that was right or affordable for our family.
Matt guided us to a Villa experience in Jamaica.
We knew after some research this was the way to go for us.
Matt’s patient ways was amazing, there was not a question he would not check out for us.
I would never trust anyone else with my travel plans. Matt B is our man!

Marvelous Travel Arrangements
Dealing with Matt was the absolute best! He was very attentive to our needs and matched our desires for accommodations, transportation, and tours perfectly. Matt was always either available or very responsive to our inquiries pertaining to the travel plans. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him to anyone needing travel arrangements, particularly in Italy. My wife and I look forward to working with Matt again!
