Authentic Experiences for the Luxury Traveler!

Pompeii...Bucket List Destination!
Pompeii...Bucket List Destination!

As the owner of Luxury Travel Destinations in Winston Salem I help my clients plan extraordinary and unforgettable vacation experiences. Every traveler has a picture of what his or her dream vacation looks like. My job is to make that dream a reality!


Having been an agent for over 22 years, I’ve helped plan hundreds of vacations but some of my absolute favorite types of trips to book are luxury river cruises to Europe and China. River cruising is truly one of the best ways to experience Europe because, historically, all of the major cities were developed on rivers. Arriving directly in the city center, you get to experience all of the highlights of Europe while only having to unpack once. Add to that, luxury accommodations, delicious dining options and endless amounts of pampering and you have the perfect European getaway! My favorite city to visit over and over again is Amsterdam. The beautiful canals surrounded by years and years of history are absolutely magnificent. River cruises often end or begin in Amsterdam so I always suggest my clients spend a few extra days there to have the chance to see all the city has to offer. A trip to the Rijksmuseum and the Anne Frank house are must-sees at this port.


If you’ve already had the wonderful opportunity to experience a European river cruise or are perhaps looking to expand your travel horizons further, I highly suggest river cruising in China. These river cruises have gained immense popularity over the years and for good reason. While sailing down the Yangtze River, travelers will take in the untouched beauty of China’s landscape on their way to historic ports. Every port during a Chinese river cruise provides visitors with a chance to experience years of history and culture. With an opportunity to see the terracotta army in Xian and the Great Wall in Beijing, visitors are guaranteed the trip of a lifetime. However, not all historical destinations are easily accessible in port. For those travelers looking to expand their river cruise, I recommend participating in a land tour. I’ve helped book a number of these unique land tours for past clients and would be happy to provide my top recommendations!


Throughout the years I have so enjoyed working as a travel agent in North Carolina. My clients know that I will help design the perfect travel experience that fulfills all their travel needs while ensuring that every detail of the trip is taken care of. I’ve created so many unforgettable vacations for my clients and look forward to learning how we can make your next trip the best one yet!

TESTIMONIAL - Bruce & Barbara - VA

In October of 2014 we took a long anticipated trip to Europe through Diane Michael. We told her what we were hoping for and she arranged a trip of a lifetime for us. She booked us on the Viking River Cruises from Amsterdam to Budapest and it was truly what we were hoping for and much more. Diane made suggestions for extended stay in Amsterdam and a tour package which turned out to one of the high lights of our trip. From beginning to end our travel, arrangements and tours were perfect. Diane worked hard and provided for us more than we ever expected.

The best agent ever!
Diane is a true professional who never stops working for you ! What a pleasure and comfort knowing Diane is available, 24/7. When a snowstorm hit our departure area, Diane was constantly checking to make sure we had a place to stay and transportation....and getting alternatives to what could have been a very bad holiday. In addition, she works to ensure your money has been well spent and your travel was as advertised.

Exceptional Honeymoon
Diane planned our honeymoon and did an extraordinary job. We were able to visit several locations around Europe with pleasure and ease. She was responsive both as we planned and if we had any questions while we were abroad. My wife and I are very thankful for her service.

Best Travel Agent Ever!
I would HIGHLY recommend Diane for any travel arrangements you need made. She first booked a trip for my husband and me back in 2013, our honeymoon to Bora Bora! She helped so much during the planning and booking process. She made it so easy for us! She was also "on-call" while were in Bora Bora and did have to use her once or twice while there! She was so helpful! Since then she has helped book numerous cruises, Disney trips, and other vacations for my family. I have recommended her to many family and friends and she has also helped them with their travels and made their experience with her just like me! She simply is the best travel agent around!
