In 1957, my parents Leni and Preston Epstein were married in Verona, Italy. Dad was stationed in Verona while serving in the US Army, and Mom flew from New York for the big day (and Italian honeymoon!). Their love story has certainly been a lot happier and lasted much longer than Verona’s other famous couple: Romeo and Juliet. This also sparked their love affair with European travel.
In 1990, my parents began Celebrated Experiences, and I had the pleasure of joining them in this incredible journey in 2006. Today, Celebrated Experiences has an incredible team of destination experts as passionate about the UK, Ireland and Italy as we are. We are proud to be recognized by Condé Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure, wendyperrin.com, Town & Country Travel and many other publications for our expertise and special travel experiences we deliver for our clients.
We are proud of our beautiful collection of Celebrated Hotels, and we cherish the friendships we have made at each property. Our process of seeking out new hotels, apartments and villas never ends, and our Collection constantly changes. Our Collection is less about how famous a hotel might be and more about finding those exceptional properties with extraordinary service, experience and value
Over our 25-year history we have worked equally hard at sourcing the very best drivers, guides, and experiences in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. With all of these ingredients we are able to design special and unique itineraries.
It is our goal to make the booking process fun and to create a beautiful experience that our clients will be talking about for many years to come. Please give us a call or email us to begin the process of planning your next vacation. We are eager to assist!
All the best,
President, Celebrated Experiences
