Wonderful trip to Ireland

By: Beth

Reviewed on: 23 Oct 2014

I believe that the services of a professional travel agent are underrated and underappreciated in this internet age, and I have experienced the difference that the assistance of an experienced Virtuoso agent can make in planning a trip! Patty Shachat assessed our travel interests, laid out a leisurely travel route, and reserved properties where we were comfortable and relaxed throughout our entire 45th wedding anniversary trip to Ireland. Most importantly, Patty listened to our concerns and preferences, and planned a vacation that was effortless on our part and worry-free. Always reluctant to end our stay at one blissful and beautiful location, thinking the next destination on our trip could not equal or exceed our last experience, we were constantly delighted that the following venues held their own charms and surprises, and we excitedly looked forward to each new destination. We would not hesitate to recommend Patty Shachat and Virtuoso! Perfect vacation!

Patty Shachat continues to allow us the flexibility to customize our trips and choose tours along with independent plans that have truly met all our needs and expectations for travel. With her expertise we decided on the Normandy, Brittany, Paris, & Loire Tauck tour of France. It was wonderful to travel in a smaller group and from start to finish the accommodations, food & dining, amazing scenery and guided visits along the way have created memories and impressions of a lifetime for us. Patty has gotten to know us both well and her outstanding communication skills continue to help us research and choose the best travel experiences. We stayed on for an additional three nights in Paris and were able to experience this glorious city even more on our own. Patty was in communication with us while handling the necessary changes of our return flight due to an Air France strike. Her professional & friendly manner adds to each of our trips!

Kauai 5 star all the way!

By: Rachel

This was our 4th trip booked with Patty - she's fantastic! We went to Kauai, which was our first time to Hawaii, and stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Poi'pu which was the sunniest spot on the island. We booked an oceanfront suite and were upgraded upon arrival to an even better suite twice the size and a huge veranda! The staff was friendly and very attentive and quick with any requests. The breakfast buffet was included in our package which was phenomenal. The grounds of the hotel are kept with care and everything is so vibrant, lush and tropical. The 5 acres worth of pools and salt water lagoon was my favorite aspect of the grounds. My husband went boogie boarding right outside at Shipwrecks Beach, and I would go for a lovely hike right next to the hotel where you can see turtles and whales along the way. We zip lined, went ATV'ing and went on a breathtaking helicopter ride around the island. Patty is always spot on with her recommendations and we can't wait to go back next year!!

Outstanding Friendly Service

The Danube River Cruise was a solid 10 with one exception: the "stateroom" was very small, barely had enough room to get around the bed and the French balcony is a joke: it is not a balcony, it is a rail. 128 square feet is almost the size of our walk1in closet at home. The tours, wait service and F & B was excellent. The Cruise-line was well run and organized. On the flights, no upgrade on short flights, on long flight, extra leg room was next to the toilets where there is constant traffic and people stepping on our feet / uncomfortable / not allowed to store carry-ons anywhere except in overhead / waste of money.
