Luxury Travel Advisor

Ashley Gallo joined Royal Travel in 2017 and has since been named Travel Expert Select for the Middle East/Dubai by Signature Travel Network. In addition to the Middle East, she also specializes in Italy and family travel.

Prior to working at Royal Travel & Tours, Ashley went to culinary school in Boston and lived in Abu Dhabi for 3 years teaching young children. She has traveled extensively throughout the world, visiting over 40 countries. Some of her favorite travel memories are from meeting the local people and experiencing their culture and cuisine first hand.

Ashley graduated Magna Cum Laude from The Ohio State University where she received her bachelor’s degree in strategic communications. A few years later she received her master’s degree in education from DePaul University, graduating with honors. Ashley is happily married with 2 young children who keep her busy. When she is not traveling or taking care of her family, she enjoys cooking and working out.

My Insider Travel Tip

Always travel with a scarf/shawl. It can be used for so many things and takes up very little space. A scarf can keep you warm (especially on a plane), dress up an outfit, protect you from the sun and even cover you for modesty if you are visiting a place of worship. I never travel without one!

My Travel Specialties

I am an expert in travel to the Middle East. My favorite destination there is the United Arab Emirates (Dubai & Abu Dhabi). I also specialize in travel to Europe, specifically Italy, France and Spain. If you are also looking for a luxury vacation with every detail meticulously planned to your specific desires, look no further.

Ashley is an expert on UAE, given her experience living there for many years in the past as well as her frequent travels to the area since she moved back to the US. She provided excellent recommendations on areas to stay at as well as touristy attractions, travel within the country, COVID requirements...etc. I had an amazing time in Dubai and Abu Dhabi largely due to her insight. If anyone is considering traveling to the UAE, I highly recommend that you take advantage of her wealth of knowledge in the area. She is beyond outstanding.
