Daria Westerfield of River Oaks Travel Agency: Travel + Leisure A-List Advisor 2022
Our travel agency has exciting news! We are proud to announce that our very own Dasha Westerfield has been named a Travel + Leisure Top Travel Advisor!
Travel + Leisure’s 20th annual A-List is highly selective and exclusive – advisors are named to this prestigious list based on their high degree of travel expertise, global connections, and insider access. Every year, Travel + Leisure editors evaluate hundreds of travel advisors to showcase the best travel professionals in the business. To be nominated for inclusion is itself a major achievement, so we’re thrilled for Dasha to be named to the list for 2022!
What sets our offerings apart from those of other travel specialists?
While the tangible benefits of working with us are wonderful (think perks like having breakfast included, complimentary upgrades, and more) the intangible benefits are what really make us shine! When working with clients we put together insider experiences customized to their personal interests. These range from tickets to sold-out events and coveted dining reservations to visits to iconic sites, often with a twist such as early access or even private visits. While it’s easy to check a city off your bucket list, we like to find ways for clients to experience destinations through off-the-beaten-path experiences that allow them to experience the local lifestyle.

Dasha has been working in the travel industry for more than 30 years, and while COVID-19 regulations and restrictions are certainly new, handling the complex logistics involved in travel is something she is very familiar with. “Since my travel career began in Russia for inbound leisure travelers, government officials, and foreign dignitaries, navigating through bureaucracy and the complications of entering and exiting is second nature to me,” she says. “Moving to Houston 22 years ago allowed me to open my own travel agency where I could take my logistical expertise and apply it towards concierge-level service for our clients.”
While navigating travel logistics is a key component of travel planning, Dasha offers even more benefits to our travelers – from arranging unique experiences and personally-vetted guides, to upgrading clients and adding amenities at the finest hotels around the world. Her thorough approach to travel planning ensures that every trip is flawlessly designed and customized to your own unique style, and is one of the many reasons why she was named to the Travel + Leisure A List for 2022.
