My name is Jeffery DalPoggetto. I grew up in Marin County ... attended Marin Catholic
High School and University of San Francisco where I obtained my degree in Accounting and
Business Administration. My heritage is Italian with both my grandfather’s being born in
Northern Italy. As a result of my Tuscan and Ligurian heritage. I have a passion for Italy.
Whether it be food, wine, art, culture, architecture, or language. I have a love for things Italian.
My first international trip was to the Orient after I graduated grade school. Whether it was the airplanes, hotels, sightseeing, diverse food and culture. I was bitten by the travel bug.
While in high school I got my first job working at Greenbrae Travel. The owner took me under her wings and personally trained and taught me all the facets of the business. The way I was trained and the time devoted to me just aren’t available the same way. I spent months assisting Rae Rutledge helping out on client bookings. Within 6 months I was able to start taking on clients and trips. That was over 40 years ago. My passion is creating that dream trip for a client.
I have created my "Black Book" of contacts around the world. These are the people that I entrust my clients trips to. Whether it be that hotel General Manager that can assign the perfect room .. or that guide in Paris that can show you a behinds the scene tour of a Parisian bakery that makes those buttery flaky croissants.. I can make your dream trip a reality.
I have travelled to almost 70 countries around the world. I have flown on everything from a glider to the Concorde from New York to Paris. I've tented it up on Mt. Kilimanjaro and luxed it in a One Bedroom Pool villa at Amankila (David Beckham and his wife had previously stayed in this same villa). I've flown in First Class on many international carriers and also on budget airlines.
Let my past experiences and contacts help create that special trip. If you can dream it .. I can create and arrange it.
