My Background

After many years spent in corporate America, I started my second career as a Luxury Travel Consultant in July 2006. I'd had the "travel bug" for many years, so launching my own business with Brownell was a dream come true.

I love tropical destinations and have extensive experience planning luxury travel to the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, Central America and the South Pacific. Europe, South America and the US are also specialties of mine, and I've traveled extensively to both continents.

I focus on family, honeymoon, couples, and multi-generational travel to all of these destinations but also worldwide. I live in Richmond, VA and travel abroad whenever I can. My blog (www.kgouldtravel.com/blog) chronicles my adventures.

Amazing Service!

By: Joe

Reviewed on: 07 Nov 2013

I could not be happier with the service provided by Katherine! She was attentive to my requests and provided information from her own stay that was useful in making decisions about the trip. She made the process very smooth and easy. She made resolving a small billing issue that cropped up after the trip easy. I let her know what had happened and she took care of everything on my behalf. I couldn't be happier with this service!

Katherine made our trip extremely memorable. She thought of everything so we didn't have to lift a finger or worry about any aspect of our trip. Katherine is extremely responsive and takes time to answer any question we had. She really went the extra mile for us (free room upgrade, champagne upon arrival, etc.). I would highly recommend Katherine to anyone planning a special trip or even just a regular family vacation. We will definitely be using her services from now on.

Amazing Trip

Katherine planned a terrific trip for our family. She did excellent research, gave us great options and the final resort we choose exceeded every expectation. We don't normally trust others with our travel plans and generally have a few high-end resorts that have been our go-to destinations. Since we were looking for more family-friendly options, yet didn't want some disney-esque all-inclusive, we put our trust in Katherine. We will be using her again, you should too.

I recently engaged Katherine to help me plan an extremely important trip for my wife and I to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Italy.  I've never utilized the services of a travel agent, so I honestly didn't know what to expect, and at what price point.  In short, Katherine provided exceptional guidance, support, suggestions, and planning that went well above and beyond anything I could have expected, and at an affordable rate.  She made everything easy for us, from drivers to hotels to personal tour guides, all of which made our trip stress free and truly relaxing and enjoyable - exactly what I was hoping for!  She met and exceeded expectations, and I will definitely use her again in the future.  In fact, I'm already referring friends and co-workers to her as well.  Katherine - Thank you for making this anniversary one of the most special and perfect moments in our marriage!  It wouldn't have been that way without you!

Knows her stuff!

For someone I have never met face to face, I will entrust Katherine with all future travel plans after my trip to St. Martin. From convenient flights I could not find on my own to added bonuses to our hotel package (which were awesome since it was our honeymoon!), her assistance was superb. We picked St. Martin because of its reputation with cuisine. Katherine was not short on recommendations. Our favorite place came from one of her list. We had fine dining every night and local spots during the day. Katherine helped with both. The other side of Katherine I really appreciated was her response time and professionalism. When she wasn't able to assist, she had her assistant or someone on her team help me with my abundance of questions. She never let me waiting more than a day for an answer and she was so helpful with reminders, follow ups and helpful hints of what to bring. I would recommend Katherine Gould to any of my friends and family to help them find a place to visit!

We haven't used a travel agent in years and after our recent experience with Katherine, I'm wondering what we we've missed in the past. Our trip was last minute, but she didn't miss a detail. Great recommendations on the property and room choice. She knew the property and took care of transportation and dining reservations. What really impressed me was her checking in with us right before we left, once during our trip, the day we were to leave and shortly after our return. She actually was concerned that we had a great time. Can't recommend her highly enough and can't wait for our next experience with her guidance.

Outstanding stay at Ritz Carlton San Juan

By: mph

Reviewed on: 02 Apr 2015

Katherine, The Ritz at San Juan was perfect! Thank you for your encouragement on that choice. We stayed there about 3+/- years ago after it was renovated and I was a bit concerned after reading Trip Advisor posts that the hotel was a little frayed and not 'as good as a Ritz should be.' I have to say that is not the case at all. The physical campus was well maintained, up to date and additionally the service outstanding. We used the concierge who gave great suggestions for activities. I still think that beach is the nicest in San Juan. We rented a car and had a great time going to rain forest, catamaran/snorkeling and old San Juan because there 4 of us. No need- really - to have a car since airport close by. Additionally it is a nonstop flight from Boston and no passport/customs. I appreciated the fact that you were able to arrange for us to have breakfast and lunch included- I think that played a big role in our enjoyment!

Helped Us Choose Our Dream Vacation

We wanted to take a Caribbean vacation with our adult daughters and their husband/boyfriend. We were overwhelmed with all the choices on the Internet … so many islands, so many resorts, so many room types! Then we found Katherine. We gave her our list of requirements and she helped us narrow down the options and make a final selection. We just came back from our trip to Couples Swept Away in Jamaica and could not be happier with our choice. The whole week I kept pinching myself. I can’t believe they have such a beautiful long beach to walk on… and great tennis facilities… and kayaks… and great food…. and yoga classes… and ping pong… and a beach sunset view from our patio… and then I’d remember… oh, yeah, that was all on our wish list for Katherine. Katherine was easy to work with, very responsive, and never seemed annoyed by our incessant questions. Thanks for making our dream vacation come true!

Good hotel locations and wonderful drivers

By: cmmva

Reviewed on: 22 Sep 2015

Valesa arranged our trip in Portugal & transport to Spain. The Lisbon hotel was about 8 blocks from the hop on/hop off bus stop. Great way to see the city. Our driver for the Sintra day trip was very well spoken and very considerate of our needs. He recommended local pastries to try and a nice little lunch place. There were no time limits placed on us. "When should we be back" was met with the response "whenever you are done...I'll be watching for you." The hotel in Porto was on the river, in the heart of the old city. Loved it! Lots of places to eat, drink sangria or port, and to people watch. Again, just blocks away from the hop on/hop off bus stops...great way to get around when you don't have days in the city. Our driver to Santiago de Compostela was absolutely delightful, excellent driver, full of history and facts of both Portugal and Spain. He was well versed in the area of our trip. Our hotel was a cnverted convent and lovely. Minutes away from the cathedral. Excellent trip!

Katherine helped us plan our honeymoon in Moorea and Bora Bora even though it was not her area of specialty. She was so detail oriented that I did not for a second worry about anything. She made sure all our needs were met, got us in touch with the right person specialized in the French Polynasian reservations and followed through with us till the last minute to make sure everything was perfect. She is very knowledgable, professional and attentive. As an example, eventhough our honeymoon was over the thanksgiving holiday, when I had a request for a change sent to her during our trip, she responded and took care of the matter in a timely manner regardless of the fact that she was on holiday herself. I highly recomment Katherine and will definitely ask for her help in our next trip planning.

Katherine continues to be a wonderful travel agent for us. She did extensive research for our most recent family trip, getting pricing and detailed information for several resorts in the Carribbean, Mexico and Florida. Having two toddlers, we wanted a short flight, a very kid friendly hotel, as well as a destination where my husband and I could have some fun. We communicated with Katherine at length through email and over the phone and no question went unanswered. With her guidance, we chose the Four Seasons Palm Beach and it was perfect. The hotel met our needs 100%. Katherine assisted in making requests to assure our rooms were kid friendly, and kept us up to date with activities happening at the hotel during "Festive" week so we could book in advance where necessary. Needless to say, we are booking our holiday week vacation with her next year!

Our recent family spring break trip to Half Moon in Jamaica was outstanding! From the moment we entered our room in the Royal Suites, we were overjoyed by the view of the clear blue Caribbean water, just steps from the patio where we enjoyed breakfast on several mornings. Our children loved the beaches, the pools, and Anancy Children's village. We were impressed by the value of the children's village, which offered activities such as arts and crafts and visiting & petting the ponies among many others. My husband and I were able to enjoy a round of golf and a trip to Fern Tree Spa, both of which get high marks. Half Moon is a resort of timeless luxury, offering something for everyone in the family. Katherine's guidance helped us ensure a smooth and efficient arrival through customs and pleasant departure experience at the airport, as well as with a medical issue with which travel insurance she recommended had on-island experts available by phone to assist.

I've known Katherine for a long time as a former co-worker and friend... But I hadn't worked with Katherine on any travel planning. With our honeymoon approaching, my now-husband and I already had a resort in St. Lucia picked out (based on our cursory internet research) - and we reached out to Katherine to book it for us. After speaking with Katherine for only a few minutes, she was able to summarize back to us exactly what type of honeymoon experience we were looking for. And she was very honest in her assessment of our previous choice - it wouldn't give us what we wanted. Instead, Katherine recommended a resort in Antigua. We trusted her judgment and booked it. And what an amazing recommendation it was! The resort and the island were perfect for us in every way!

Amazing Family Vacation to Punta Mita, Mexico

Working with Katherine was invaluable as we planned our first international family vacation. We don't travel much outside of visiting family, and Katherine's help on some good and trustworthy destination options was immensely helpful. I had many questions along the way as we made decisions and she was always prompt and thorough getting back to me. In the end we chose to go to a Four Seasons resort in Punta Mita, Mexico. This place was so wonderful and comfortable! We were treated like royalty, the food was SO good, the hotel rooms were beautiful and we didn't need to leave the resort at all. There were plenty of activities organized by the hotel, and MANY nooks and crannies to just hang out in. Although the resort was big, it didn't feel big or crowded. Katherine also arranged for dinner reservations for us, a massage appointment at the spa for me, and an excursion to swim with dolphins one day. She helped us know how to tip people there, and all other random questions.

Katherine is a pleasure to work with, and does a great job of finding accommodations and suggesting activities well-suited to my wishes.

Katherine and her partner service in Portugal got everything quickly re-arranged to our revised wishes and stayed in touch to throughout the trip to ensure that all changes were realized for us by the local service providers. Knowing that we have that kind of support - ESPECIALLY when things don't go according to plan - makes it so much easier to relax and enjoy a great vacation.

Both worked out splendidly; AmaWaterways definitely provides a luxurious, comfortable experience, and Hotel Caesar Augustus, perched on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples 1000 ft. below, was a friendly, indulgent experience. And I have to say that both provided very impressive dining services. They're the kind of reliable recommendations I can rely on from Katherine, but more importantly, knowing that she and her staff and partners take care of all the details in accordance with my wishes - and handle any adjustments required along the way - makes it that much easier to relax and enjoy the many experiences.
