At Foster Perry, we tell you to dream it and let us make it come true. Only makes sense, since that's what we did! Founded by Dionne Roberts, Foster Perry Travel is the culmination of 20 years of planning trips for herself and others, and loving (almost) every minute of it. Based in San Antonio, Texas, Foster Perry plans escapades, experiences and adventures for clients across the country, from the couple taking their first vacation to the college friends vacationing together for twenty years. And that's the best part - there is no one right answer, no one perfect trip, just the perfect one for you. And we're here to help you find it.
A Message From Our Founder
Hi, I'm Dionne Roberts, the founder of Foster Perry Travel, and like you, I love to travel. Over the last 20 years I've been to 49 states, most of the US territories and protectorates, and 25 countries. If I could bring my 75 pound dog, the list would grow a lot faster, but alas. I try to combine my love of travel and love of music and culture to make every trip unique. Best of all, I get to bring all of my great experiences (and some tough lessons too) into the process of making sure your trip is one you will never forget. Since I do travel frequently, make sure to follow us on Facebook so you can come along for the ride, and get some ideas for your own bucket list!
Dionne's Recent Trips
These last couple of years have been a whirlwind! Some of my 2016 highlights included a jazz cruise in the Caribbean, and combining a Celebrity Mediterranean cruise with some extra time in Milan and Cinque Terre. Please, ask me about the mussel farm in Kotor - off every beaten path but so amazing! Then there was the New Orleans Jazz Fest, where we just about floated away! Before 2016 ended there was a trip to Quito, Ecuador, a quick visit to the Bahamas, a cruise to Cuba and a conference in Las Vegas. Not too hard to understand why I love this work! 2017 was just as tough - an amazing journey to Costa Rica, an Alaskan Cruise and then our amazing Jazz Cruise out of Galveston with Billy Ray Sheppard, his band and 83 of our closest friends. I would tell you about what 2018 has in store, but ask me in person instead!
