Japan and Palau vacation

complicated trip with upgrades, miles, multiple cities and countries, lots of hotel and tour details. Jane handled them with aplomb and a smile. there were no errors or omissions and for the best prices available. There is no agent that can take the responsibility for all aspects of one's travel, especially a complicated itinerary and horrible airline restrictions, but Jane did it as well as it could be done. The traveler still has to do the homework necessary to get the trip they want and take responsibility for the choices. Janey, just gets it done. Thks, Jane, b

Amazing Jane did it again!

Brussels to Bruges to Paris via plane, train, barge, van and foot. It could have been a movie that was part travel adventure, part romantic comedy. Jane Scarcello made the planning fun and introduced us to barge travel. We are so glad she did --we had absolutely no idea how lovely two weeks could be on a luxury adventure full of amazing sights, lots of history, being pampered, gourmet food and a stateroom we wanted to live in forever.. We wanted to adjust to all those time zones with a few nights in Brussels and of course she arranged a wonderful, centrally located hotel absolutely to our liking. Afterward, there was the fun of showing her some of our photos and reliving the trip with her. Jane is gifted professional who is amazing at tailoring a trip to specific requests and needs and interests. We are so glad we wandered into MVT several years ago. We wouldn't think of going anywhere else--we can always count on the friendly greetings of the entire staff as we wait for Jane.

Jane creates rainbows for drought-weary Santa Barbarans

Once again, Jane created a superior vacation for us, this time to Ireland. She searched out airline routes with great connections, organized the Airbus to LAX, had a rental car waiting for us and booked a terrific hotel in Dublin. Then we set out exploring on a route we'd talked over with her. We saw the best of Ireland at a time of fewer visitors and lovely weather. We saw abbeys and castles and rainbows and cliffs and beaches and mountains. And sheep...lots of sheep. We emailed her a few times while we were in Ireland to share a photo or two, and she always made us smile with her enthusiasm and clever comments. Thanks, Jane!

Another Fun, Creative Trip from Jane

This is the highest recommendation for Jane. She is fun, creative, never flustered--the perfect travel agent. The Smith Hotels in Portugal she recommended were a real highlight for us, especially the Palacio Ramalhete. The Palacio was so amazing I went on Trip Advisor and did a rave review--and I never do that. We were treated like royalty, and the hotel was so amazing, from the hotel itself, to the friendly and informed staff, to the amazing breakfast buffet to the history of the place. Hotel Teatro was unique and quirky and also had superior staff in the hotel portion--rooms and concierge were lovely. We also stayed at a Posada in Coimbra which was historic and lovely. The people of Portugal are genuinely glad to see tourists.The sights are terrific--even in the off season when it is rainy. Again, a big shout out to the amazing Jane for planning our air travel, bus to and from LAX, all the accommodations,and gave us a list of highlights to be sure to check out.Let's plan another

Fabulous Trip

We loved our wonderful trip with Regent's Navigator. It was terrific and without stress to be on a ship where everything is included. We did not have to waste time signing bills, deciding if an on shore activity was "worth it", figuring out who and how much to tip or paying extra for drinks and speciality restaurants…!! Our travel agent, Jane Scarcello, made all the arrangements and took care of any details that came up before we left. She answered all the inane questions and even provided information to our family while we were gone. Thanks to Virtuoso for providing us with extra spending money (that was fun to spend) and one of the many cocktail parties that were offered on the trip.. All was perfect!!!!

Jane sent us off on a Hurtigruten cruise to Norway. She spent time and effort researching the different ships and plans, and she even arranged for us to speak to another client who had gone on a cruise. It was truly the trip of a lifetime, a bucket list dream come true. We sent her and the office a few photos along the way, then went in to visit and giggle over the funny happenings a few days after we got back. Jane is a real pro, and she arranged everything from the Airbus out of SB to the flight to the hotels to the train to Bergen to a few primo excursions and the trip back to SB. She thought of everything and we are happy and grateful.

Jane plans still another "once in a lifetime" trip

Jane organized still another "once in a lifetime" vacation for us--a Zeagrahm cruise called "Best of the Baltics". Everything about her planning was perfect, as always, and she works cooperatively with other members of the staff to get their professional input. It is fun to go to Montecito Village Travel and Jane and the others really help take away the potential stress surrounding travel. Jane is honestly interested in hearing about the trips when we return and the whole staff gathers around to see some photos. Jane really cares and is an expert, unflappable, creative travel specialist. Go, Jane, go!

Once I call Jane I am stress free and flying! I have worked with many travel agents over my years of travel, but until I moved to Santa Barbara and Jane was recommended , I was always the one in charge to be sure I had the best money could buy. If I go for a night or a month, I am stress free with arrangements, Jane's on the top of it. Wherever I go, once I enter the hotel, I am greeted with a special welcome and taken often to a room with a view unexpected. I let go and enjoy all the beauty she arranges and with many added surprises. Chocolates are my favorite along with the suite I was surprised with. Jane is compassionate, fun, and always with a smile she says ENJOY! Never a worry, she's knows her client's heart.

Whenever it is time to travel, we say "Better cal Jane" Jane is always the absolute best. She has planned trips both large and small for us, and she shows the same professionalism--and her lovely British charm--whether it is a complex foreign vacation or a simple domestic one. She knows so much about making travel more fun and less stress. She even recently sorted out an emergency flight for a godchild of ours on a moment's notice and even called us after hours to make sure he was okay. We tell everyone to go to MVT and ask for Jane.
