“What special memories I will have for the rest of my life of my time alone with my first born daughter in Paris. Thank you so much for all of your time and hard work putting this magical trip together. Not surprisingly, everyone I met just gushed about how wonderful you are. The only part missing on this adventure was that you were not in Paris to share a bottle of champagne with us. Next time, I hope.” With love and appreciation. - Kathy H. California

Our Personalized Trip to Japan!

Arlene Santos and her team at DAI Travel in Nashville, TN, planned and flawlessly delivered a 2-week trip to Japan for my family and me in April, 2016. We gave Arlene a few ideas on which cities we wanted to visit and the kind of things we liked to do and she put together a terrific bespoke set of accommodations, activities, and in-country travel arrangements that moved us masterfully from one friendly, knowledgeable English-speaking guide to another across 4 cities – Tokyo, Kyoto, Hakone, & Takayama -all with the stunning beauty of Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms as the backdrop.

Highlights included a private sushi-making class in Tokyo, sake tasting in Kyoto, and an unforgettable stay at a ryoken in Hakone. The success of this first encounter with Arlene has ensured that we will absolutely turn to her for our future travel planning needs.
