Thank you for visiting our media page. We know your time is precious, so let us quickly show you the highlights of our exceptional coverage, which is national and international in scope.
Getting to Know US
We understand you don’t know us, so it helps if you have some reassurance, via our press affiliations, that we will deliver as promised. We’d also be happy to send you links to PR professionals with whom we’ve worked over the years who would be more than happy to give us a reference. Just ask!. Our press affiliations include:
Society of American Travel Writers (SATW)
San Diego Press Club (multiple travel article award winners)
For a current look at all our articles, MuckRack does a great job of scanning the web to search articles and photos that we generated. Check it out here: DiBona MuckRack site
Each of our posts on this national site has an estimated media value of $30,500+ reaching 5 million+ readers—and growing! 10Best is quickly taking over as the travel arm of USATODAY, thanks to the quality of its journalists and photographers, and we are proud to have been part of the team since its inception in 2010.
An important part of our ROI is that, in addition to this international coverage, we will provide you with complimentary use of our photos/videos for promotional use to highlight your destination.
We invite you to review all the many galleries we’ve produced for 10Best over the years, and you can see them all here on our personal 10BEST link.
We LOVE print, and have dozens of print articles in major publications (San Diego Union Tribune, LA TIMES, AAA Magazine, The Week, Chicago Tribune, Charlotte Observer, Baltimore Sun, New York Daily News, and the list goes on) published over the years (beginning with my first travel article ever written, which appeared as the lead article on the LA TIMES travel section back in 1988!)
Here’s a link to our PUBLICATION PRINT GALLERY that features PDFs of a few of these articles. This is our most recent:
We are syndicated with the Tribune News Service, which means our articles, published regularly in the San Diego Union Tribune, are sent out to national and even international media for reprint after publication. Our 10Best galleries also are syndicated with Gannett Syndication Service, so you never quite know where in the world our galleries will appear!
We specialize in experiential ocean and river cruises, covering the historical, cultural, social, and natural flora and fauna of every port we visit. We’re happy to jump into a kayak to maneuver through ice floes, snorkel in waters to capture magnificent coral reefs and playful seals, or just relax on deck and photograph the amazing scenery as it floats by. Since a photo is worth a thousand words, check out some of these recent cruise articles in USATODAY 10 Best and USA TODAY Travel:
SAIL LIKE A VIKING INTO THE MIDNIGHT SUN
We think the best way to see any destination is by train (or luxury bus, too). Sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenery you would never see if you were driving.

US NATIONAL PARKS
This is a partial list of all parks we’ve visited and photographed over the years, but we know there are still many more out there to explore. And we are ready for the challenge!
Europe is one of our favorite destinations, to be sure. We love traveling outside of the big cities, discovering smaller towns and villages whose history speaks to our souls-- and to our cameras, of course! These galleries are among dozens we’ve produced on European destinations over the years.
While we concentrate mostly on California wine trails, for obvious reasons, we’ve also had incredible experiences outside California.
We’ve visited vinyards from Texas to Virginia to Idaho. And we will NEVER forget the wine trails along the Rhein, with Reisling like we never tasted before!
So please feel free to invite us to discover your region’s vintages, wherever in the world you are! Here a few of our most recent winery-based articles:
Many of our press trips involve soft adventure, from swimming with the sea lions and turtles off the coast of the Galapagos Islands, to kayaking through the ice floes of Alaska, bicycling along the waterways of Europe, and trekking through countless numbers of picturesque hiking trails around the world. Here was one of our favorites!
10Best loves the quaint and historic towns across the USA (and the WORLD, actually) so please don’t hesitate to pitch your town/city to us for consideration.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Luxury health/wellness travel is another one of our specialties.
Our Photography Website
As if the above wasn’t enough to convince you we should be part of your PR outreach, our travel photography website, JOANNE & TONY DIBONA PHOTOGRAPHY currently generates 120,000+ photo views each month. As an added bonus to any of our press trips with you, complimentary photos and video clips are provided to our hosts for promotional use, just in exchange for a photo credit.
