My Background

In 2013, Grace joined Elli Travel Group. Much of her life has revolved around travel, having moved too many times to recall, including overseas stints in Europe and Asia.

Prior to joining Elli Travel, Grace formed a relocation consulting business. She assisted both returning ex pats as well as newcomers, all of whom were facing large-scale moves. Before this Grace had to organize her own family’s move from Hong Kong back to New York.

While in Hong Kong for five years, Grace traveled extensively. She served on Asian Tours Committee of the American Women’s Association (AWA) of Hong Kong. For the AWA she selected and planned group trips, and served as a trip leader for several tours including those in China, Vietnam and Cambodia. Prior to life in Asia, Grace and her family had lived in New York and London, the latter of which allowed her to visit many of the special places throughout Europe.

Before becoming a full-time mom, Grace worked in the fashion industry for many years. Her appreciation for design, culture and food is prevalent when helping clients plan their own trips.

Grace was a pro all the way. She understood the needs of the group, made great recommendations and helped us deal with some unexpected issues. She was in touch on a Saturday night to make sure all was well with our trip. This experience has made me see the value in using an experienced travel agent rather than trying to plan and book everything on our own. Thank you Grace!

We have been working with Grace for a couple of years now and it continues to be a smooth and pleasant experience. Grace knows our family's travel preferences and selects appropriate hotels or resorts, as well as tours and sightseeing destinations. Grace always follows up during and after our trips to see how we're doing or how it went, and is open to and appreciates hearing negative comments as well as the positive ones. We highly recommend her and look forward to continuing to work with her.

All worked out very well. My only complaint was that we didn't go over the final itinerary in detail. There were some aspects that would have gone smoother on the trip if Grace had pointed out to us the options. This may be a case of buyer beware; we could have pored over the details ourselves, but we might not have spotted the potential problems as well as a professional. On the other hand, Grace did point out one potential problem with the flights on our way back. That saved us from possibly missing our flight home. All in all a good experience.

Ski trip

This is the third trip Grace helped us plan. As always we were very appreciative of her insight with helping us choose lodging and work out transportation logistics. This time we also needed advice on different ski locations and what would work best for our family for a first time ‘out West’. Grace had a lot of advice to offer and took the time to help us plan a great trip.
