My Background

In the early 70s, Patti Olshen began her career as an advisor in New York and carried her profession and clients with her to Florida in 1994.

Over the years, many of her top travel destinations have transformed into specialties: the islands of the Caribbean, with their pristine white sand beaches and azure waters. Santa Fe, for Canyon Road’s art, the cultural experiences, Native American history, and a hot air balloon ride that delivers stunning panoramic views. And more marvelous than anywhere else, Paris, which Patti declares “the most magical city in the world.”

Patti’s expertise is all-inclusive properties, tours and cruises. Her dedication to her clients’ satisfaction takes her on a yearly weeklong scouting trip to experience the hotels in different regions. She has explored Turks and Caicos, Mexico (a top destination), Nevis, Jamaica and the Canadian Rockies. Patti can definitely orchestrate beautiful adventures and trips you will truly never forget.

Alaska is awesome and scenic but this trip should be made by young people and not in September. Also it's pretty expensive, but in most cases, worth it. Go when you can, don't put it off, the glaciers are melting.

Patti Olshen has serviced my professional as well personal travel needs for 14+ years. She is a perfectionist & always has the best interests of her client in mind. Patti has booked many business trips to "hard to travel" destinations & they always go off flawlessly. We have also used Patti for family & friends vacation travel and everyone is always very pleased with their travel experience...I would highly recommend Patti Olshen for any travel planning needs...Ray Drake - Fair Oaks, CA

Patti is a great listener which is sometimes half the challenge when working with an agent on a winning vacation.  We have used her expert professional skills many times (six+) and each time have been very happy with results. She knows the market well for cruises, hotels, and airlines worldwide and can give expert advice on visas and associated paperwork.  Another much appreciated practice is to call and or email back very quickly, if she cannot be reached live with first try.  All in all we find Patti to be the best 'special experience' planner we have ever worked with.

enchantment resort in sedona

By: sm

Reviewed on: 20 Sep 2014

Patti is professional, very helpful, pleasure to work with. I really appreciated the "Welcome Home" note I received after my trip. The discounts/vouchers I received with Virtuoso were very significant - $100 credit towards spa treatments, up to $40/day for breakfast and more. The Enchantment is a first class resort/spa. The facilities and service were excellent. Sedona is all they said it would be. I recommend it and would go again. Enchantment: The concierge was routinely very difficult to access by phone. The rooms (casitas) are spread all over the property, some way up on hills. Walking back and forth, especially at higher altitude, can be taxing. So it is something to consider when booking a room (You may request closer to the main lobby or spa, for example). There were a couple activities that either did not occur or were not what was listed on the activity sheet. So it is worth checking ahead of time to make sure things are a-go for a particular activity. Thank you Patti!

The Azamara Cruise was its usual superior experience. The ship is the perfect size. The crew is very well trained & helpful. All of Patti's recommendations were good. Except the Westminster Hotel in Nice. It was undergoing a major remodeling & was not worth the $600 USD per night rate. We should have received a discount or refund. Patti's help was excellent.

She knows what we like and always makes great recommendations. She is well traveled and gives us her insights to the places we are off to.

Alaska is great

Our trip was great. Well planned and just the right amount of time. Coral Princess was nice but they need to upgrade the specialty restaurants. One was good, the other awful. Princess knows which one as we told them on the ship and afterwards. Alaska is well worth your time to visit. The side trips to Vancouver and San Francisco were also good. Hotels were well located and very comfortable.
