Kind Words from Clients

"I would like to thank you for a fabulous, well-planned trip we had last 2 weeks. We had fun, good lodgings and meals, learning experiences and a wondering bonding time together. It would have not turned out that well if it had not been for you. I can ask you to plan my next trip anytime."

Tracy & Andrew

Traveled to Peru & Bolivia

"Jeanie helped us plan a trip to Italy. Not only did she know the language, she immersed herself in the history and culture. She knows the BEST outdoor restaurants, where we got to enjoy the scenic views. She also shared her advice on how to travel smart and safe."

Suzie

Traveled to Italy

"My trip to Italy was one of a lifetime! Jeanie at Riveting Trips made it all possible!! Jeanie nailed the locations of my hotels and the quality was excellent based the budget I provided. The itinerary provided by Riveting Trips was detailed, easy to follow (especially since it was my first time to Italy), and a life saver. Make sure you have a plan before you travel to Italy!! No one better to assist with your plan than Jeanie at Riveting Trips!!!"

Jack P.

Traveled to Italy

"Jeanie was super helpful in planning extra special things to see on our recent trip to Rome and Florence. She's connected with wonderful tour operators, and knew loads of little off the beaten path spots. She listened to what we wanted to see and stayed on our budget, always a plus. Highly recommend her."

CJ

Traveled to Rome & Florence, Italy

"Jeanie helped craft a fabulous Roman itinerary for my sister and I. Not only did she take the time to get to know what types of things we like to do on vacation, she did some very thorough research to provide personalized recommendations–and her enthusiasm and love of travel and travel planning showed. It almost felt as though I was planning a trip with my bff. She provided great information and tidbits about those “off the beaten path” wanderings. There were times that we found ourselves hanging amongst the locals instead of the tourists and it gave us a different, richer perspective of the city."

Aileen

Traveled to Rome, Italy

"Working with Jeanie has been so easy and seamless. She really listens to our dreams. I was so stressed about finding the right person to help me plan my wedding in Italy. She is making everything super pain-free and I feel like she cares about our wedding as if it were her own. 🙂 I would totally recommend her services. She's presented us with different venues and has educated us about the differences in getting married in Italy."

Sarah T

Traveled to Italy

"As an executive at a Fortune 5 company, I don't have a lot of time to travel, much less arrange my travel. I contacted Riveting Trips for a last minute vacation to Paris and London. Jeanie's extensive travel experience and knowledge clearly added value that I wouldn't have been able to obtain any other way. She was able to share options that were not publicly advertised, and helped create an itinerary that maximized my time and enjoyment in Europe. Jeanie not only obviously loves travel, but delights in sharing that love with others, as well. She was well informed, conscientious, and accessible for my many, many questions. Many thanks to Jeanie and Riveting Trips."

Janet

Traveled to Paris and London

"Jeanie was helpful and organized in planning my trips to Chile, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Responses are prompt and within one business day at the latest. Just tell her what you want and she will accommodate. If I had no ideas on what to do, Jeanie will suggest great activities to do. I loved the travel suggestions in biking around Chile, going up Machu Picchu, and snorkeling in the Galapagos."

Erwin

Traveled to Latin America

"We just finished an AWESOME trip to Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Galapagos Islands! It was truly a trip of a lifetime, all thanks to Riveting Trips. Everything was so well planned out, we didn't have to worry about a thing besides having fun 🙂 Jeanie was accessible and helpful during the entire trip to ensure that everything went smoothly. We are already planning our next trip with Riveting Trips... can't wait!"
