“Outstanding trip and Fantastic Agent (Stefany) A+++++. We have wanted to go to Italy for years and finally did it. We worked with Stefany who helped us plan this trip down to the smallest detail and it was perfect. We had a truly amazing 2 weeks in Italy and we owe this all to her planning and help. We had the perfect worry-free trip because of her. We had a very small issue come up part way thru the trip and Stefany took care of it for us that same day (even being 5,000 miles away). We were so impressed. You will not find a better travel agent to work with than her. We would recommend her to anyone and we will definitely use her services again in the future. WE thank DMC Travel Tailor and Stefany for a perfect trip throughout Italy that we will remember always.”

“Stefany is wonderful! She is attentive and knowledgeable. She always responded to my questions very quickly–sometimes even late in the evening. She planned a once-in-a-lifetime experience on a Uniworld river cruise with a much beloved Charleston area chef. It was a fabulous experience! She and her husband also went on the cruise which made it even more special. She is very customer service oriented. At every destination ( as we had her schedule a pre-cruise and post-cruise for us), there was a sweet letter from her and her husband. They even sent us a thank- you gift which arrived the day after we arrived back from our trip with treats to remind us of France. She carefully researched the activities we wanted to do. She was meticulous in arranging our trip. We will definitely have her arrange our travel plans in the future. In fact. all of us in the Charleston group asked her, “where are we going next?” She and her husband call themselves the bucket-list fillers and they certainly are!”

“30th Anniversary Italy DREAM Trip-Florence and Amalfi Coast-Working with Stefany was great! She is sweet and thorough, asked us lots of questions about how we like to travel, what we like to do, the types of hotels we prefer, and was able to accommodate both of us equally. The tours she set up for us were perfect, the guides knowledgeable, the hotels exquisite, and I don’t know how she pulled this off, but the weather spectacular! 😉 I’m sure we could have done our own planning, but Stefany’s knowledge of the area and expertise in travel and tourism made it all the more special and is a trip I’ll remember for a lifetime.”

Michelle Bastian Richards

“Thoughtful and seamless. It was terrific working with Stefany. She was proactive, constantly in communication, took care of the littlest detail and infinitely patient. Every leg of our travel had somebody waiting to greet us and get us through the travel mazes. When we reached our accommodation there was always a personal letter from Stefany greeting us. When we arrived home, there was a gift awaiting us, reminding us of our superb holiday. Stefany should get a special recognition or award for dealing with the Uniworld cruise director, who clearly was having trouble coping. She will get my business again!”

“Excellent Experience. Stefany made both planning and experiencing our vacation wonderful. She provided options based upon our preferences so we could make choices but not be overwhelmed. We definitely felt our trip was personalized just for us. All details of our trip were covered which made for a relaxing and stress free experience. Stefany’s kind hospitality “touches” made for an “ahhh” experience throughout our trip. We are not normally big travelers but Stefany made our trip so great we believe more travels, arranged by Stefany, are in our future.”

“BEST part of our trip!”

“Stefany helped us plan a 9-day Luxury Mediterranean cruise and a 5-day extra stay in Italy. Stefany was always incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about what we were wanting and what types of accommodations and services best suited our tastes. She followed up if she didn’t have answers for us and recommended some great things.

One of the best parts of our 3-week vacation was the last 5 days that we spent on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Stefany planned the whole thing for us, from the car service pick up, tours and hotels. It was one of the best parts of our trip! Service was spot on! We also enjoyed our little cards and welcome gifts at each different place we went to.

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to travel for any type of business or pleasure.”

Zivile Rezgyte

“I’d give Stefany 10 thumbs up if I had 10 thumbs : )

I’m pretty particular and therefore I often hesitate about turning over the reigns when it comes to planning. Stefany took the time to get to know our individual and group needs and desires, so I trusted she was finding the best options for us. I was able to comfortably take a more hands-off approach, which made my life and schedule less stressful. Her attention to detail helped the trip run smoothly and her thoughtfulness showed she really cared about us and our happiness. Work with Stefany to create your next dream adventure with ease.”

Kristen Winnicki

Jeanne Winnicki

“Simply the best. We have worked with Stefany Di Manno Ceccato for all of our business and personal travel plans. She is incredibly knowledgeable, organized, thorough, and always goes above and beyond to help her clients.  She provides excellent suggestions during the trip planning process; whether you are looking for a structured day to day itinerary or just some recommendations for those who are a little more spontaneous with their plans. She is always incredibly responsive by call, text or email and each interaction is always welcomed with warmth and a smile. We highly recommend her to all of our family, friends, and clients.”

“Our trip to Prague and Vienna turned out to be beyond our expectations all customized just for us!! Each leg, each touch point, each adventure, felt like it was planned with attention to detail with regards to our needs. The various excursions, private walking tours and castle tours made the best use of time to make for a very memorable vacation. We had no worries that we would be greeted and directed in a timely and professional manner, that the accommodations were superb, and that we had been guided by someone who knew the culture and history of each country.

There is nothing we would have changed. Just an outstanding trip we will always remember.
We would definitely use you again for future travel plans.”

“I recently had the pleasure of traveling to the Amalfi coast.  We had enlisted both Stefany Di Manno Ceccato, and Daniele Ceccato of DMC Travel Tailor to help us come up with a few very unique ideas while we were visiting the Amalfi coast.  They had proposed the idea of chartering a private yacht for the day. We really liked the idea.  Honestly, I was a bit skeptical as I thought the price would be astronomical.  It turns out it was not! It was super affordable, and definitely over delivered on many levels.  DMC Travel Tailor had found a private yacht that launched out of Salerno, took us up the gorgeous coast, and returned the same day.  The Captain of the boat, Pasquale, and his wife were wonderful hosts.  They were warm and engaging.  And, phenomenal cooks. The Captain was so kind, and extremely interesting.  He is a classical guitarist, and, a professor of music and art.  Most importantly, he was a very astute Nautical Captain.  He grew up around boats, and always wanted to do exactly what he was doing in hosting our group. We felt like we were in very capable hands. Upon arrival, they greeted us warmly. The Captain went over a few safety points, and we were off.  We moved through the water at a pleasant pace.  They prepared a wonderful, healthy, flavor filled lunch.  The pace of the day was very relaxed, yet, had direction. Being I am a hands-on person, the Captain let me drive the boat all the way back down the coast.  Upon arriving back to port just before Sundown, the timing was perfect.  We walked around Salerno for an hour or so, while the Captain and his wife were preparing our dinner. It was incredible. A great ending to an already exquisite day. This was our first experience with DMC, we will definitely be contacting them for our next adventure!  Both Stefany and Daniele were kind, professional, and fun.  We wish them nothing but the best, and will certainly recommend our friends to enlist their services on their next “bucket list” trip.”

“Ms. Stefany Di Manno Ceccato has worked via a network that we were part of flying us nearly five years starting in 2011 thru 2016. During that time, she distinguished herself as being an excellent flight attendant with superior service and attention.

Stefany frequently went above and beyond the call of duty, and helped make our journeys comfortable and enjoyable. She is always helpful, courteous and reliable.

I would highly recommend Stefany as a private flight attendant, and other roles in which she can use her vast travel knowledge and experience.”

“I have known Stefany Di Manno Ceccato since 2004. We worked together in a client-broker relationship in New York city real estate. Stefany has always performed above expectations and has a keen ability to understand our needs, communicate clearly,  find the absolute right opportunity and deliver the deal – all while managing any issues with relative ease. She was part of the largest success story in the company’s history in coordinating the highest grossing unit in the chain. Her client dedication and ethics are superior and I would highly recommend her work to potential clients.”
