Fantastic Service and Upgrade

I recently had a last minute business trip planned in CA, did not have the time to research where I wanted to stay.I called Debbie for assistance & she gave me a few hotel options & recommendations,citing all the pluses and minuses of each hotel.She booked me a room at a very good rate that was not available online, & I was able to take advantage of the Virtuoso amenities as well.I called the hotel the morning before checking-in, in order to request a late checkout.I was quickly denied. I asked to speak with a supervisor,who told me the same thing. I called Debbie,asking her for her help. She gladly obliged,and within 20 minutes of hanging up with her, I got a call back from Debbie saying "You are all set with a late check-out". It was a very important meeting,& I needed the extra time in my room to finish my business. I was very grateful. I have been using Debbie for all my travels for a few years now,& will continue to do so.Her expertise & passion for travel is an invaluable asset!

Travel is one of our great passions, and we plan a special trip each year. We met Deb Crockett-Rice many years ago through mutual friends and have used her services ever since. She learns your preferences, and works with whatever budget you provide to optimize and maximize your trip. We have been to South America, Galapagos, Ireland, Europe (several times), Australia and New Zealand and each and every trip is flawlessly planned, transfers in place and never any surprises. We also appreciate the caliber of company partnerships you encounter in the virtuoso family, everyone we meet and every place we stay is exceptional and well-located to easily take in the local venues. We have great confidence in Deb and a great deal of respect and gratitude for her exceptional service to us over the years and we look forward to our continued relationship. We plan to see the world, and we know with Deb's expertise it will be most enjoyable!! Thank you so much Deb, Kendall & Mendy
