Expert Friendly Service

Thanks Janet for planning a great trip to Barcelona, Paris and Nice! The hotel choices were great, conveniently located so walking was always easy. Tours were also fabulous. Always appreciated your availability to respond by email, text or phone to all of our needs. I would highly recommend Janet Lewis and Largay Travel!

Luxury Travel Agent

By: bv

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2015

Janet was our travel agent for a trip we won through a TV station. She is a luxury travel agent for those who can afford the best. We are recently retired and on a fixed income. She explained the airline info as well as our hotel in Milan. She was very helpful in getting us accommodations in Lake Como to extend our trip 2 days. But when we needed info on tours and transfers, she supplied pricing for expensive private tours and limos. We did go with the limo driver from the airport to the Four Seasons (this hotel was part of our winning trip); however it ended up being a lot more expensive than we were quoted. The concierge at both hotels were the most help in scheduling tours, local travel, and transfers for rail and air. It was often difficult connecting with her via phone. Email proved to be better when she gave us particular information. I would only recommend her for someone who was planning an expensive vacation.

Amazing honeymoon

By: Alyssa

Reviewed on: 01 Jul 2016

We had an incredible honeymoon in Italy that Janet Lewis planned. The hotels were beautiful and the service was great, everyone was so friendly and attentive. We also had a few tours that were great, specifically in Pompeii. Our tour guide was really knowledgeable and it was a great experience. Another highlight was a boat trip that we took to Capri - we had a private speedboat for the day and the driver took us around the area before dropping us at Capri for a few hours to explore. Overall this was the best trip my husband and I have been on.

Every place was so beautiful I wanted to call Janet and say " I want to stay HERE!" I am glad Iwe stayed on the itinerary she crafted Otherwise I would have missed Shutters on the Beach . What a place . You know it's luxurious but it feels like home! Janet reserved the perfect room for two beach lovers who also want privacy ! Once again I was sad to leave . We drove up the coast and up and up and up And there it was ... Our trip ended with a magical place called the Post Ranch which should be on everyone's bucket list .At one point as I was standing in our all stone open shower looking out over the mountain as the sun was going down with the fog rolling in... I know I thanked God and felt so lucky to be in that moment . What a day ,What a trip , Life is Good

Alaska Cruise

By: colleen

Reviewed on: 19 Aug 2017

My family and I decided on an Alaska cruise for our summer trip this year - early into the planning I could see that I needed some guidance from a pro, and Janet Lewis was the perfect match. Janet helped us in deciding everything from the cruise line to the itinerary (including a side trip to Seattle) to shore excursions that were best suited to our family which includes 2 older teen boys. The shore excursions she selected for us were amazing and the perfect addition of adventure and activity to the cruise. We travel quite a bit, but rarely use travel professionals - not any more! As my husband said - "we've never had such a well planned trip - no last minute crises!" and my boys "Why hasn't Janet planned all our trips?" Janet will be our first call in planning our next trip. Thank you Janet!

Janet was great! She listened to our needs and planned a perfect trip to Hawaii for our family of five. With 3 teenagers, we needed to find a place that would entertain them and this was the right spot. Mostly we were impressed by the level of service that we received that was obviously due to Janet and her affiliation with Virtuoso. She knew the places that she was sending us very well and they really catered to us and met our every need. I will definitely use Janet for our future travels and highly recommend her!

Hawaii trip - August 2018

Aloha! Janet Lewis hit a home run with her amazing itinerary and flawless attention to detail for my families recent trip to Hawaii. On this year's trip (our first to Hawaii), Janet put together a perfect balance of properties, activities and experiences. We started in Maui, staying at the Grand Wailea Resort - the ocean front rooms were exquisite and the beach and pools provided non stop fun, we were thrilled by the Old Lahaina Luau.Next we flew to the Big Island and stayed at the historic Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, which is an architectural beauty with a gorgeous white sand beach. We did a lot of snorkeling, paddle boarding and took a Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour of the island and volcanoes. Last stop was Waikiki for a quick overnight at the gorgeous Moana Surfrider hotel and a chance to see Pearl Harbor. The trip and all the details were perfectly planned, allowing us to relax and enjoy. Janet is the consummate travel advisor - Mahalo for an unforgettable trip!
