My Background

Fifteen years ago, I sailed on the maiden voyage of the P and O ship Canberra for a cruise around the world. That was the trip that altered my entire perspective on life.  Being in the travel industry for over twenty three years, I have had the opportunity to travel to all parts of the globe.

 I am especially fortunate because I got to travel with my three children. We shared all the priceless experiences together. Now a days, I reside in Malibu. During the time that I am not planning family or couple travel I fill my days with volunteering. I belong to Trojan Guild of Los Angeles and currently hold the position of Auction Benefit Chairman for Social Service Auxiliary, a group who supports the Sisters of Social Service.

Patricia was able to get me very good airline tickets for travel during the Christmas holidays. As usual, she did an excellent job!

Patricia recommended we stay at Rosewood's Little Dix Bay Resort in the British Virgin Islands. The trip was the best we've taken and everything Patricia planned worked out perfectly.   It was truly an awesome vacation.    Thank you Patricia!

If you are a traveler who wants ultimate luxury but you don't want to spend a dime more than you must, PLUS you want professional advice from a highly experienced professional who personally knows the finest properties and cruise lines, I suggest you work with Patricia Dowling.  She has guided me and my family for at least 20 years, with numerous trips throughout Europe and Asia, always recommending the highest standard of travel for the best deal out there.  She is knowledgable and accessible, and simply lots of fun.  I highly recommend Patricia!

VIP Treatment

Virtuoso Agent Patricia Dowling made our break in Ashford Castle truly special. We were upgraded on check- in to a Deluxe Room with a magnificent view from the main window of the double-arched bridge entrance to the castle and of the river and lakeland walk from the side window. As Patricia is a Virtuoso agent we received a €85/$100 credit to be used towards food & drink —which enhanced our enjoyment of evening aperitifs in the Prince of Wales Bar and post-prandial drinks in the elegant drawing room where we were entertained on both evenings by the resident pianist. To crown things off we availed of the guaranteed late check-out offered to Virtuoso clients with a last stroll through the grounds after a wonderfully leisurely breakfast. Superb service Patricia—thank you!

Patricia is wonderful to work with. She has a lot of experience and great ideas. She stayed in close contact, kept us informed, and let us know immediately of any changes. If we had questions she always got back to us right away to answer and we always knew she was there if we had any problems.

Fantastic! She saw to our every need, and even things I didn't know we needed. I was traveling with my granddaughter and wanted it to be a special trip for her graduation. The trip exceeded our expectations.. Our lodgings were gorgeous everywhere we went and when we boarded the Windstar our cabin was upgraded (spectacular) and the ports of call were interesting. Patricia has such a calm and reassuring demeanor and attention to detail that it takes the worry out of planning. Of course, the fact that she graduated from USC is a huge plus for some of us, too. (Heh Heh).
