Amazing Experience! - Lynette - Manhattan Beach | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America ~ March 2018
Darby is awesome! She goes above and beyond for her clients. She thinks of every little detail -- our trip was seamless thanks to her planning. She was able to plan an amazing trip for us at a price that was much less than I was able to plan myself. And it's so nice to know she's always available in case there is ever an issue or question. I highly recommend working with Darby, especially if you aren't an experienced traveler.
Perfect Trip Planning - Jessica & Casey - Cape Cod, MA | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe ~ December 2017
Darby planned our entire trip to Paris and Normandy, France over Christmas and New Years. Darby was an absolute pleasure to work with and we let her totally take the reins in selection of hotel and airlines and tour selection. She took care of every little detail of planning our trip and it went flawlessly. From the selection of hotels to advice on how to best see the sites we wanted to visit, it was all perfect. While we were traveling, she even responded to emails from the hotel for us, taking care of early check-in logistics so we didnt have to. By the time I saw the emails, she had already taken care of it. She sent us all of our travel documents in a well organized binder (which we nicknamed "the Darby purse"), even with printed tags for our luggage. Everything we needed was in this binder, I never had to print a thing. She reminded us of things we needed to bring and made sure we had reservations for New Years dinner. I can't say enough about the value of Darby's expertise.
Another great trip by Darby! - Robby - Mansfield, MA | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean December 2017
Darby is a great Agent to work with! She is always willing to answer questions and really wants you to have the best vacation you can. She takes time to make sure that you’re vacations are well planned out, organized, and you are treated as VIPs. Even while you are on your trip, she makes sure she is available for you to contact her. Would highly reccomend to anyone!
A magical vacation! - Patrice - Wrentham,MA | Traveled to Danube River Cruise ~ October 2017
Working with Darby was a pleasure! She was always available and knew all the answers (if she didn't she quickly found out the answer). Darby's suggestion to go with Avalon Waterways for our river cruise proved to be the absolute right choice. We look forward to using Darby's expertise to plan our next vacation.
Pre and post Alaska cruise tour - Kathryn - East Falmouth, MA | Traveled to Seattle ~ Washington ~ USA August 2017
Darby worked with us on all the arrangements and was very responsive answering our questions. She made suggestions which we integrated into our plans. One was a stopover in Seattle which made the fight to Fairbanks more palatable and allowed us to tour Seattle. Another was the add on days in Vancouver when we toured Vancouver and spent a day in Victoria.
Darby arranged the tours and shuttles for us at each location. We felt that, with Darby, we we were in very good hands and wensisnt lose any time in our destinations because our arrangements were very clear.
Unique Europe Vacation Excellence - Jen - Foxboro, MA | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe July 2017
My experience working with Darby was fabulous. She handled all of the details helping me create a unique personalized vacation. It was my first trip alone to Europe, so I was unsure of what to expect. Darby walked me through each step of the trip from planning what I wanted to do, finding the best options for travel, hotels, excursions, and transfers from station to station. Before I left, we had a wonderful one-on-one review where she answered all of my questions. Throughout the trip, she kept an eye on my journey, reminding me to check in for flights, and generally being there. It was reassuring to have someone ready to help in any situation. Finally the trip was one I will never forget. She was able to combine personal interests with visiting family and relatives. I didn't have to worry about anything. All I had to do was show up and enjoy the experience. I highly recommend Darby and Darby's Destinations for anyone wishing to create a unique customized vacation.
Maui Family Vacation Dave - Stoughton, MA | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA May 2017
We had a wonderful family vacation to Maui and Honolulu which was set up by Darby. She provided our family of five with a well planned trip including travel to and from the islands, a lei greeting when we stepped off the plane, an inter-island flight, and car service to and from the airport and to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. We did have one problem with the air conditioning at our Maui accommodations, but Darby was right there to coordinate with the resort management getting us a replacement, upgraded villa. What started as a once-in-a-lifetime trip has turned into, "we can't wait to go back." Thanks Darby!
Great Family Trip!! Shea Family - Mansfield MA | Traveled to Grand Cayman ~ Cayman Islands ~ Caribbean June 2017
This was our first time using Darby and our experience could not have been better! She offered many options for our family vacation. She provided all the details including prices and features of our destination. Darby is very easy to work with. We did everything via email or phone. We look forward to planning another family vacation with Darby!!
Fantastic Tour of Spain, all the embellishments By Kevin - Norwood, MA | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe June 2017
Darby took care of all the arrangements. Checked in every step of the way Perfect flights, perfect trip. Flawless!
Dangling off a Pirate Ship in Aruba By Clinton Family - Mansfield, MA | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean June 2017
From our first interaction with Darby, it was clear she was all about what WE wanted in a vacation. She worked tirelessly to provide many options for our very special vacation --we ended up in Aruba and could not be happier with our choice.
We had many requests from a non-stop flight with extra leg room, to an ocean view room to a destination that was great for older teenage and adult kids. It was truly the perfect spot!
I wouldn't hesitate at all to contact her and have her help us with our next dream trip!!
Our fabulous 50th By Brenda - Framingham MA | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean May 2017
From the moment we decided to take a vacation to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, Darby Savasta was, without a doubt, the one to make it happen. She was extremely helpful every step of the way. She helped pick a resort that would be fun for 14 people ranging in age from 8 to 74. She took care of all the details regarding the resort, air, and transports. She was also very responsive to my many phone calls. We had an amazing trip. She took all the worries away! We are grateful to her for giving our family a beautiful lifetime memory. Thank you, Darby.
Trip of a lifetime! By Kathy - Stoughton, MA | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA May 2017
Everything was great! Our family of 5 had an excellent time in Hawaii! Maui was beautiful. Our visit to Pearl Harbor, in Oahu, was fantastic due, in part, to the tour company. Our guide, John was awesome.
It's so nice to have a travel agent to guide you and support you through the process of choosing a great vacation. It's also good to have someone to advocate for you when you're traveling. If things aren't perfect, you don't need to worry or attend to any details ~ they take care of everything, THANKS DARBY:)
Awesome trip to The Windy City!!!! By Holly & Guy Dupre - Fairhaven, MA | Traveled to Chicago ~ Illinois ~ USA April 2017
Darby did a fantastic job researching our options for a trip to Chicago. We arrived at our hotel and she had sent a courtesy VIP letter introducing us to the hotel, and when we checked in they gave us free drink coupons because it was my husbands birthday while we were there.
She also took the extra time to look up and include some dining recommendations to popular restaurants on our itinerary, which saved us some time.
All in all we had a great trip and were very pleased with Darby's service. We will definitely be booking future vacations with Darby!!
Europe Cruise By barnesp - North Attleboro Ma | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe March 2017
Darby Is very professional. Knowing our needs are important and Darby knows what we like and dislike. We know only use her for our travel needs and we travel at least 3 times a year
Has to be 6 stars for Darby! By Diane - Haslett, Michigan | Traveled to New Orleans
Darby has made trip planning for us easy. Quick turnaround time with any questions we had. Would definitely refer friends to her!
Amazing vacation! By Carol - Mansfield, MA | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean March 2017
I reached out to ‘Darby’s Destinations’ over a year ago, to plan a trip for March 2017. I was very indecisive in choosing the destination: (Florida/ St. Thomas/ Aruba)….. Darby helped me to narrow down the search by sending me detailed information and quotes on all of these destinations. Once I finally decided on Aruba - Darby sent me several all-inclusive property quotes and helped me to decide. Finally chose the Rio Palace Antillas, and we were very impressed with the accommodations at this resort. We arrived on a Tuesday and on Saturday received an email from Darby informing us of the potential storm in Boston and offered to change our flight to either the day before storm or day after. I was so grateful that she gave me the heads up, as my husband wasn’t feeling well, and we didn’t want to take any chances of not getting off the island…..so she was able to get the last two seats on the flight day before. We communicated for several hours via email and text….. & was so relieved when Darby forwarded the new e-ticket. She went over and above to give us trip options, plan our trip, and monitor our return flights. Thank you Darby for a great vacation and going that extra mile to make sure every last detail was handled with care. Your knowledge patience and service exceeded all expectations, and we look forward to working with you on future trips.
With great appreciation.
Best vacation EVER ! By British Traveler - Mansfield, MA | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico March 2017
Darby is extremely easy to work with, she has always found us delightful places to visit and stay, our most recent trip was to Mexico and it turned out to be the best vacation we have ever had, well, till the next one she sets up for us !
Everything in one place By MKLane - Michigan | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean February 2017
Darby always sends us reassured. She is always available and our trips are always well organized.
Amazing Anniversary Celebration! Reviewed By Jen - Stoughton, MA | Traveled to Grenada ~ Caribbean February 2017
Darby truly cared about our experience from start to finish. She wrote a letter to the resort to make sure they were prepared for my husband's food allergies and saw to it that we had an amazing stay.
Stress Free By JDI62679 - Foxboro, MA | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA January 2017
We have used Darby 2X now for our Disney World trips, she makes everything so easy! I will definitely use her again in the future for any big vacations we decide to go on!
Great First Night in Boston By JRH - Mansfield | Traveled to Boston ~ Massachusetts ~ USA December 2016
I contacted Darby for recommendations on where to stay and what to do for First Night in Boston this past year. Although it was a local trip lasting less than 24 hours, you might think it was a trek around Europe with the effort she put in. The itinerary she provided was just great to have as we moved from place to place, and the VIP client letter she sent to the hotel on our behalf made my teenage son feel like royalty. It was a great way to bring in the New Year and we have already contacted Darby again about this summer's more extensive vacation to California.
Amazing, Relazing, Vacation! By Bryan - Stamford, CT | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico December 2016
Darby really planned a great vacation for my group of friends and myself. We were a pretty big group, and had a budget and Darby delivered beyond our beliefs and expectations! By having such a bigger group, Darby relived the stress of booking our vacation and handled everything phenomenally! When we needed her outside of the country on our trip, she was right there for us! She truly is a great agent and person, and I can't wait to use her for any future vacations! Thanks Darby!
Her planning allowed me to vacation stress-free By Shannon - Mansfield, MA | Traveled to Mexico December 2016
I can't say enough great things about Darby. I traveled with a large group and she was very helpful in organizing everything for us and being patient with the many different people involved. She gave us a variety of options which allowed us to pick the exact trip we wanted. She was always available right when we needed her, even when we were out of the country. I will definitely be using Darby's Destinations the next time I travel!

Fabulous Family Vacation By Todd T. - Boston area | Traveled to Disney Cruise August 2016
We highly recommend Darby's Destinations for any travel plans - business or pleasure!! I contacted Darby to plan a ambitious family vacation before our daughter went off to college. We had so many ideas - cruise, Disney, Universal? What to pick?? Darby made it ALL happen! And affordably! It's hard to please 7 people, ages 12 to 70, but Darby had great advice and made sure everyone (including 4 teenagers!) got what they wanted, and not break the bank. Everything she suggested turned out to be 5 stars in our eyes. She even gave us hints as to where to get the shuttle at the airport and best way to use our Fast Passes. She did all the work, so we could have all the fun!! Many thanks, Darby! Looking forward to seeing what you recommend for us next :-)
She planned a great trip. By Frank & Janet - Braintree, MA | Traveled to Alaska July 2016
She did an excellent job planning the 12 day Alaska trip. We had several transfers and all were covered with vouchers and other necessary documents. She altered our initial return flights to provide even better arrival times. All in all this was an A+ effort on her part.
Italy By Cheryl - Metrowest Boston | Traveled to Italy June 2016
Darby went above and beyond in helping plan and execute our trip to Italy in May. My daughter was studying in Italy and I came for a long weekend. She expertly handled all our flights, transfers and accommodations. The hotels that Darby found were just the perfect match for our mother daughter experience. We were not easy customers...my daughter missed her original flight and Darby was in constant contact with us and the airlines trying to, and successfully, re routing her and getting her to Italy on time. During a stressful time Darby was the cool head amongst us all. Thank you Darby, we will be using you again for sure.
Cruise to Bermuda By Doris - Bermuda | Traveled to Bermuda July 2016
Darby made our trip so easy. If we had any questions she responded right away with the answers. Our documents for the trip were ready for us and her assistance with all that made our trip trouble free!! We will definitely contact Darby with travel plans in the future.
Planning a Surprise Trip made easy! By smitell - outside Boston, MA | Traveled to Florida May 2016
Tasked with finding a quick weekend escape to celebrate a milestone birthday, Darby quickly and efficiently provided many options and the pros/cons for each one. The breadth of choices was amazing - from local to tropical, from domestic to international, and from all-inclusive to pick-and-choose - all within my price goals!! Once the destination was set, the rest of the planning was made so easy - Darby took care of it all, including rental car, special upgrades at the hotel and easy payment options. I'd recommend Darby to anyone and everyone!
Paris France By Terry - Fairfield, CT | Traveled to France May 2016
This is the second time that Darby put together a trip for myself and my family to Paris, France. Once again we had an absolutely spectacular time. Starting from the ease of communication with Darby which includes her patience with schedule changes and trip detail changes, everything needed for the trip was handled with ease and confidence. Her recommendations were awesome and included a highlight of our trip that I would not have known about and the hotels that she helped us choose were among the best in Paris for the value. Their locations ended up better than we could have imagined. She obviously loves what she does and puts a great deal of effort, time, and passion in her work. We simply cannot wait for our next trip!
Darby is a pleasure to deal with ! By Steve&Judy - Mansfield MA | Traveled to Panama Canal March 2016
This was our first cruise and Darby was extremely helpful in assisting us with the many choices and decisions we had to make. In the end, we followed Darby's advice and everything she said and did turned out exactly as she had predicted. She paid much attention to all details, and we had a fantastic time! We definitely plan to book more travel with Darby's Destinations.
Royal Caribbean Oasis of the February 2016 Seas by Stacie
Darby is the best! We were tossing around so many different vacation ideas and Darby helped us with our final decision. Darby always makes herself available for questions. This is the second time we used Darby and can't wait to use her again on our next vacation. I highly recommend her services. I swear she has traveled everywhere and is very knowledgeable on all sorts of vacations and travel.
Israel Vacation April 2016
Darby has helped my family and I plan a number of vacations and has always gone above and beyond to make sure that every detail of our trip is as we dreamed it to be. Most recently, we took a trip to Israel. As I thought this could be a tricky one to plan without being a boutique Israel travel agency, I started by emailing a few of the bigger Israel tour companies. I had some very specific things that I wanted to do (as I had been there before), I had some safety concerns, and I wanted to get there and back within my budget. Suffice to say, each and every big-name tour company fell extremely short of my hopes. I reached out to Darby to see if she would be able to take this on, and within days she had used her connections and put an ideal vacation together for us. Down to every last detail, and dealing with a family who changed their minds on things a few times, Darby was nothing less than amazing. She found out about safety issues, she advised us about some very smart travel strategy (for safety and for cost savings), and we had her support up to and through our adventure. What can I say, we had an absolute blast! We did everything I had hoped for and more. Darby helped my family create some life-long memories, and she served as a source of support and experience for both my immediate family and my parents (who wound up needing to cancel their trip at the last minute). Thanks Darby!!
Great Trip to Spain March 2016 by Leslie
Darby was so helpful in planning our trip to Spain - she is so responsive, easy to reach, patient and gave us great recommendations. A resource we have used in the past and look forward to using again, can't wait to plan our next vacation!
Florida Vacation April 20 by Ruth
Another Great Trip!
We have used Darby in the past to plan our vacations. It is wonderful to just send an email or make a quick phone call, and know that your vacation will be planned thoughtfully and quickly. The process is so stress free, that I cannot imagine ever trying to plan any kind of vacation on our own. Darby is Fabulous!!
California Vacation February 2016 by Simon
Stress Free Vacations
Working with Darby was a breeze, simply say where you want to go and when you want to go there and leave the rest up to her. She made some excellent recommendations and we had a fabulous time. Will absolutely use her services again.
Caribbean Vacation January 2016
My husband and I recently decided to go to a destination wedding in Punta Cana, which is why we enlisted the aid of Darby at Darby's Destinations. Boy, was that the right thing to do! A few days before, I realized I was having some anxiety about a number of questions I had about the travel details. I sent Darby numerous emails and received prompt and thorough answers. Definitely helped me relax. When we actually traveled, we found that Darby had taken care of all the details, such as transfers to and from the airport and room selection in the same area as family members. In addition, the prices she was able to get were amazing! As far as I am concerned , Darby took all the 'angst' out the travel and vacation and left only the enjoyment part. She is more than just a travel agent; she is your travel buddy who thinks of everything and is available if there is a snafu. We may travel more now that we know how easy it can be!!
Jamaica Vacation January 2016
Planning with her is a piece of cake!
Darby is simply the best! She is organized and always thinking ahead for the needs of our large family. We have utilized her services for our last 3 vacations and we have always been pleased. Darby is prompt, thorough, and extremely wonderful to deal with. We are looking forward to our 2016 summer vacation she is currently planning for us!
Solo Europe Vacation August 2015
I apologize for not sending this earlier--.....--but I wanted to say an official thank you!!!

You saved me so much time and head aching and allowed me to just enjoy myself :) I really appreciate everything you did for me so thank you thank you thank you! I will be sure to recommend you to people whenever I hear them in need of a travel agent! I hope you enjoy what is left of the summer!
All the best,
Family Vacation to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios January 2015
Bob and I want to thank you again so very much for setting up our vacation. Yes, we had a great time because it was warm, sunny Florida and Disney. But more importantly Bob and I were able to relax because of your planning expertise!
From the arranged transfers to the dining plan to the hotel rooms, we were consistently pleasantly surprised with the quality and ease of traveling, transferring and vacationing. There is no way we would have had the time or the knowledge to put it all together like you did. We agree, hiring your travel services was the best decision we ever made!
If you ever need a reference, Bob and I would be happy to sing your praises anytime. Thank you so much!
Holiday Vacation to Riviera Maya December 2013 by Lisa
I keep wanting to write you all about our trip and thank you so much for your planning and suggestions but it's kind of crazy right now. So the short version is we had an absolutely fabulous time, loved the resort and the weather was perfect! Pouring rain on the way to the airport on the last day but that’s the only rain we had (except a little sprinkle for about 5 minutes one day).
Disney Cruise November 2013 by Julia
I hope you enjoyed Europe. We all absolutely loved the Disney Cruise!!! Thank you so very much for organizing such an amazing vacation for us. From our flights, transportation, hotel, to the cruise itself, everything went very smoothly thanks to your wonderful skills. I also really appreciated all of the updates you provided along the way and for the personal attention to every detail of our trip.
Holiday Vacation to Riviera Maya December 2013 by Ellen
I wanted to thank you so much for your great service and assistance with our vacation. You were so professional and thorough and we would love to work with you again. We had a great vacation. I will give you some feedback for your reference for the future. We loved the resort. It is beautiful. We were in the Palace in the Oaxaca building, way towards the back away from the beach. The rooms were very nice and we had rooms that were adjacent.
Thanks again for you help.
Hope to work with you again.
Vacation to Hawaii September 2013 by Sandra and Bill
"We really enjoyed our trip and thanks for the candy, we've enjoyed it also. It was nice to be away from everything for two weeks though. We were treated well everywhere and all the accommodations were comfortable and beautiful. The grounds were just gorgeous. Take care and I've enjoyed you working with us on getting everything scheduled and taken care of.
Sandra and Bill W.
Vacation to Aruba August 2013 by Ruth M.
"We wanted you to know how much we appreciate all of your assistance in planning our Aruba vacation. It was truly PERFECT in every way! The hotel was beautiful, and the view from our rooms was breathtaking. We had the nice surprise of receiving champagne, wine, and fruit and cheese trays in our rooms on the first day. (I think that might have been your influence, as it was from the hotel manager. Thank you, again.) We would highly recommend Aruba and the Hyatt.
So, it was a wonderful vacation. We are sad it is over. We did some really fun things: jet skiing, parasailing, and rented a Jeep Wrangler to tour the island and the coast for a day. If you know anyone with teens or young adults going to Aruba, the “Jolly Pirates” cruise was a lot of fun. It was a cruise on a pirate ship that included snorkeling, rope swings off the boat, and of course, a bit of alcohol for the “over 18” passengers. But, there were many children on board, too, so it really was a fun thing to do.
Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer. I will be in touch when it is time for another vacation!
Thanks for everything,"
Vacation to Spain August 2013 by Marianne, Christine, and Joanne
"Yes, we did have a fantastic “sisters” vacation thanks to you. Going to another country and not speaking the language that well (although my sister Tina did great job getting us around) it was wonderful that you took care of all the details for transfers, hotel reservation, and the Madrid tour. What a relief to have someone waiting for us at the airport after we landed, and the transfer from our hotel to the train station. The hotel in Madrid was wonderful – very nice!
I appreciate all you did for our Spain trip! You are wonderful at what you do. The sisters are very appreciative too!
Vacation to France April 2013 by Terry and Joe K.
"Everytime I sit down at my computer to write you a thank you note, I get side tracked. UGH! No more. I have to tell you what an amazing vacation we had. So, so much fun. EVERYTHING went so smoothly from flights, to hotels, to transfers to passes to tours....., YOU NAME IT!! It was as if all the planets were aligned and we were destined to enjoy ourselves. The hotel in Paris was in an AWESOME location. Right near the metro, walking distance to the Louvre, and so close to incredible shopping. We wanted for nothing. We had a wonderful breakfast served right there every morning, and the staff was so sweet. The place itself wasn't that big, but it worked perfectly for us. We were psyched we got the 2 rooms. The girls are messy and noisy. I so miss it. I cannot tell you how much. We became really good Metro users by the end of the 3 days. The pass you got us was key. We also visited Versailles. The weather was amazing. Each time we had to be met by the airport or train transfer cars, it went perfectly! On time, no problems and the driver in Nice was so funny and sweet, we LOVED him.
I cannot tell you enough, how thankful we are for all of your help and preparations and work on our behalf. It made such a difference. No stress at all!!
Hope all is well with you and that business is busier than ever. Cannot wait to call you up for our next vacation."
