Patrick De Gabriele

Travel consultant focused on cultural travel in the Middle East & Mediterranean



As a passionate traveller with great curiosity about the big world out there, I offer a personalised travel service for special interest groups and independent travellers. Working with a licensed travel agent, I tailor itineraries and accommodation to the needs of particular groups and individuals. My main focus is on the Mediterranean and Middle East, simply because I know and love the cultures of these regions. My clients include adult education organisations, schools, church groups, social clubs and family groups.

My approach is personal, not the ‘one size fits all’ attitude of large organisations, and the emphasis is always on listening to the needs of travellers. Typically, a group tour will begin with a discussion about where travellers most want to go, followed by a proposed itinerary that has been carefully thought out and fully priced, a presentation to those who may be interested in joining the group, all the necessary bookings and administration, and a pre-departure meeting. I escort the group from Australia and look after the all-important details on the road.

Alternatively, I’m always happy to organise itineraries for independent travellers and unescorted groups of friends or families.
