Great Advice and Suggestions
Sridevi did a fabulous job of planning some extended time around a Mediterranean cruise I took in the fall of 2019. She had great advice and suggestions regarding tours from the cruise line, and especially helped with booking everything for before and after my cruise. I didn't have to worry about anything, she took care of it all - from private tours to transfers to/from airports and hotels. For a solo traveler, this was perfect. The hotels she booked were great finds, in good areas an in-budget. Even though I'm nervous about being on small boats, I had a great experience in Venice with the private water taxis she booked for me. No problems at all! I highly recommend her service to anyone traveling abroad, whether in a group or traveling alone.
She is the epitome of gracious, organized, and helpful
Sri Chandra was a pleasure to work with. She is the epitome of gracious, organized, and helpful. She organized a trip for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary to London. In London, we rented a premium luxury yacht and cruised the Thames River to Oxford and back. While cruising the river, we were able to stop whenever we wanted to sightsee, shop, eat at pubs, and enjoy the sights. The boat had a full kitchen and we were able to prepare meals onboard if we didn't feel like leaving. Upon return from Oxford, we moored just outside of London and Sri arranged for private tours to the London Tour, British Museum, and St. Paul's Cathedral. We slept in our boat at night and toured London by day. It's the perfect way to see the English countryside and London.
Amazing Holiday Experience
Sri helped organize our Italy trip covering Rome, Vatican, Naples, Pompeii, Amalfi Coast, Florence, Milan, Pisa, Cinque Terre, Venice over 2 weeks. She is extremely detail oriented, planning the minutest detail perfectly. She offers her suggestions and at the same time lends a patient ear in taking up our views as well, the result of which has been an amazing holiday experience. The best part is that she can curate the experience according to any budget and time, to make it a cherished experience. Our tour consisted of a heady mix of historical site visits, magnificent Basilica/Duomo visits to viewing Art and Architecture at its best and exhilarating view of the Tuscan countryside and sea side visits. Interspersing natural wonders with art & history made us absorb the Italian way of life better. Throughout the planning process Sri kept sharing valuable nuggets of information. Sri ensured an immersive experience and I look forward to planning the next with her in the near future.
A Trip of a Lifetime to New Zealand
Sri with Storybook Getaways organized a trip of a lifetime to New Zealand for our 10 year wedding anniversary trip. Sri took the time to listen and understand exactly what we were hoping to do on this trip, which was adventure! She designed a perfect trip and had everything organized and set up flawlessly. In addition, plans had to change last minute while we in New Zealand due to rain. Even with a significant time difference, Sri was available, rearranged our plans, and ensured we were taken care of throughout the entire trip. Her service, creativity and organization was outstanding. I highly recommend Sri and Storybook Getaways and can't wait to start planning our next trip with her!
Our Trip Was a Truly Magical Experience..
Sridevi Chandra and Storybook Getaways recently took us away to Europe. I highly recommend Sridevi's travel services.
Her flawless bookings and attention to detail, made our trip effortless and memorable. It was a girls trip for 5 to Paris, London and Amsterdam. From the flights, ground transfers and train tickets, all of our travel and lodging was perfectly booked. Sridevi posses excellent knowledge, and knows how to book your hotels near all of the places you want to be, she is also helpful in booking activities and tickets for the places you want to go. She has excellent customer service and is always just a text away for any questions before, after, and during your trip.
I could not imagine taking this trip without her expertise. Our trip was a truly magical experience..
I'm planning a trip to Italy next year with my family and I know I will be in excellent hands with Sridevi Chandra.
Implementing and Designing the Perfect Excursions for Our Family
One of my favorite quotes is "Alone we can do so little and together we can do so much" by Helen Keller. When I think of the work hard work Sri puts into coordinating, implementing and designing the perfect excursions for our family, this is the quote that comes to mind. She is a true joy to partner with and my family will continue to reach out to with Sri for our future "bucket list" destinations. We rest with great confidence knowing that she will go the extra mile to make sure we have a lovely experience built for our love of outdoor adventures, great food and wine, and learning about new cultures! There are only 5 stars here but I will give 10 plus!!
My name is Sridevi Chandra (you can call me Sri), founder and travel designer of Storybook Getaways. My passion is helping families create a lifetime of memories by designing custom vacations that are filled with authentic and culturally enriching experiences.
My husband and I have always shared the idea that we would travel to new places and experience new cultures as often as we could with our boys before they go off to college, and that is what we have started to do. We both feel it is important that learning extends outside the classroom, and in discovering new lands, distinct cultures and diverse people, we broaden our horizons and see just how large - or small - the world can truly be.
My goal is to find your family the perfect trip and then take it one step further with small surprises along the way, by drawing on our contacts with top travel suppliers around the world. I strive towards providing you a stress-free vacation experience with continued support from planning stage all the way until your return home.

This starts with an in depth consultation with you to discuss your unique passions, interests and travel desires which helps me to put together a personalized itinerary for you.
