Katie DeFilipps

Scottsdale, Arizona Travel Agent

Luxury Travel Agent (Gluten-Free!)

During my travels I have learned to expect the unexpected and appreciate the experiences that surprises bring. What could be better than wandering the arrondissements of Paris and not caring if you get lost because of the new discoveries to be found down every cobblestone street? I value my client relationships and my #1 goal is to turn your travel dreams into unique, unforgettable experiences. I am also an expert at helping travelers with gluten-free and dietary restrictions navigate the world.

Katie's The Best!!!!

Reviewed By Al - Scottsdale, AZ | Traveled to Galapagos Islands ~ Ecuador ~ South America
Katie DeFilipps has been our "Tour Specialist" for a number of years. She is thorough, detailed, professional and extremely courteous. We have never had a "glitch" with Katie. She will travel to your home and meet at odd hours (evenings and week-ends) to complete the necessary paperwork for any trip. Katie always has a smile on her face and projects a positive, can-do attitude. We highly recommend Ms. DeFilipps for any of your travel needs.

Katie is the "crème da la crème" when it comes to assisting with anything related to travel. She is knowledgeable about everything from transportation reservations to housing options to extra travel tours to ground transportation etc. There isn't an aspect that she can't help with. She is available for assistance even while you are traveling. It's like she is on call 24/7. There is a high level of confidence in the plans made with Katie's guidance. She is prompt and professional in her role as one's advisor.

I had a very complicated, international, family trip that Katie planned for me. Katie was knowledgeable, organized, and patient! We traveled to many different countries and family members flew home on different dates and times. Katie handled all the plans (and changes...she’s patient, remember?!) like a pro! I highly recommend Katie.
