Excellent service and amazing contacts!

Elizabeth had been our go-to travel agent for almost 13 years now. She has repeatedly found us places that perfectly matched our means and our preferences as both have changed over time. She first sent us to Carlisle Bay Antigua in 2010, and we were concerned by some of the online reviews we saw. She did the research and persuaded us that this was the right fit. We have been back 5 times now and cannot imagine going anywhere else in Antigua. Every time we go back, Elizabeth ensures we get the best price and all of the little extra benefits possible. She looks out for us to make sure all of the details are seen to in a timely fashion. A perfect travel professional!

excellent planning

By: Barbara

Reviewed on: 06 Mar 2017

Elizabeth was efficient, offered excellent choices of tours for my destination at the level of accommodations I was considering, and offered clear explanations about international travel when there were additional details to attend to, i.e. visas, transports. She was thorough in her research, even contacting local representatives to find a venue for some charitable donations we wanted to make upon arrival. I was extremely satisfied with my travel experience thanks to Elizabeth. I have planned with her another trip for this year!

Mayakoba amazingness

By: Don't Travel Often but When We Do, We Do It Right!

Reviewed on: 02 Jun 2017

We took an amazing, much needed five days at the Rosewood Mayakoba in April 2017. This place exceeded our expectations in so many ways. Maybe it's because of the 2 kids under 2 that we left at home, but moreso I think it was our confidence that Elizabeth wouldn't steer us wrong. Oh, and once there - all the rooms are spacious and face either the lagoons or the beach, there is nature all around you, there is a "butler" with app to access him/her - out of soap? ask. out of chardonnay? ask. need a dinner reservation or an excursion last minute? just ask. Beautiful beach club with pool, dining and drinks - and nice clientele - a mix of families and adults only. Had dinner one night at the Banyan Tree. And played some golf at El Chameleon. Our family has worked with Elizabeth for at least 10 years on many trips - including a trip of a lifetime with my Dad to Africa. She does the research, knows her stuff, thinks of all the details - and you couldn't be in better travel hands!

Galapagos Islands adventure

By: Sandi

Reviewed on: 10 Jul 2017

Elizabeth Clyde was very interested in providing the best experience for my grandson and me. She confirmed her ideas and knowledge about the Galapagos Islands adventure with another travel agent who had actually been on the same cruise. I felt my concerns and questions were well addressed before we departed. The planned cruise more than met my expectations. Elizabeth planned the airfare giving me plenty of time to negotiate the major airports with luggage in tow. She also had suggestions for making the layover in Guayaquil more comfortable and fun. I chose to try to get home without spending another night away. In hindsight, I will listen to my travel agent next time as Elizabeth does try to make one comfortable in all aspects of the journey! I certainly will have Elizabeth plan my next adventure with another grandchild!

Elizabeth was a real pleasure to work with. I found her on a virtuoso web site and called. We’ve never met but I really was lucky because I must have had her check about 10-15 locations and each time she got back to me she was as patient and pleasant as the time before. She’s a real find!!!

Elizabeth made planning our honeymoon SO easy and painless. She was patient with me when I was indecisive. She always respected our budget and offered us multiple options within our price range. When there was a minor hiccup at one of our hotels she handled it so quickly and got us an amazing upgrade. Truly, our honeymoon would not have been as great if Elizabeth had not helped us! I have already recommended virtuoso to my other honeymooning friends.

Elizabeth did a phenomenal job! She planned every part of our trip to the final detail. She was extremely communicative and informative when we had questions. She brought her impressive knowledge of the area to craft an itinerary that exceeded even our highest expectations. Our favorite part of the trip was the Sydney Bridge Climb. It was absolutely stunning. I plan to work with Elizabeth on all my trips in the future.

Elizabeth Clyde is fabulous

By: Lisa

Reviewed on: 11 Jan 2018

Elizabeth is a top notch professional-I love working with her and have worked with her on a wide range of trips over the past decade or more. Elizabeth helps you plan the trip, identifies great places to stay that meet youe budget and other requirements, keeps you informed about upcoming deadlines and provides helpful information throughout the process. She is super accessible before during and after the trip and is always available via email and phone to help if any glitches arise in your travel, including hotel overcharges, room mixups, and travel delays due to weather). One could not ask for a more helpful, informed, professional and responsive travel consultant; Elizabeth is a rare gem and i recommend her to all of my friends.

We have worked with Elizabeth several times in planning and booking travel and it is always a pleasure. Sometimes you just need more information than a standard internet search will generate and Elizabeth was always there to provide knowledgeable advice and suggestions tailored to our needs. Patient and thoughtful with all questions and prompt with all responses!

I've worked with folks at Virtuoso before but this was my first time with Elizabeth. We booked travel to Nizuc Resort in Cancun. We spoke over the phone initially, and then communicated the remainder of our planning over email and I could tell after our first conversation that she was on top of it! She is responsive, proactive and detail-oriented which you really come to appreciate working in NYC! I look forward to planning my next trip with her and so glad we found someone dependable to work with going forward.

Elizabeth did an excellent job coordinating our hotels, tours and transportation for our Italy trip. She was very responsive to our requests, handled our changes with great patience and flexibility and made excellent recommendations for our trip.

excellent person to work with, highly recommended

By: Mystiqz

Reviewed on: 06 Oct 2018

I have never used virtuoso before but was recommended by a friend and was pleasantly surprised with the service offered. Feels a little strange not having met her in person but perhaps this is how we've adapted to the times. She responded to my inquiries within 1-2 business days. She let me know if she was going to be away for an extended period of time. I had a few inquiries and she was able to provide a pdf of various room rates in a timely fashion. The pdfs can get a little lengthy but everything is easily comparable. She even followed up with me a few days after I came back from vacation. I really appreciated that. Not only in this profession but wherever you're providing a service, attention to details is what truly sets you apart from the rest. I am not sure how virtuoso works in terms of can each agent book whatever you need or only specific agents can book for certain geographic areas. Overall I would highly recommend her and will be using her services in the future.

Panama - Fall 2018

By: Family Man

Reviewed on: 11 Dec 2018

Working with Elizabeth was a success on all fronts. She was clearly invested in making our trip as interesting as possible without taking over the itinerary. She listened to our collective input and crafted an array of disparate information into a trip that was somehow diverse, active, and relaxing all at the same time. She is very adept at picking up the vibe of a group and turning that into a fantastic set of memories. Great communication, and highly recommended!

Felt like a VIP

Elizabeth is so easy to work with. I've been working with her over the last couple years and had a long weekend in Vegas to plan. I'd ordinarily do it on my own but decided to ask her for assistance. She helped me book a room at The Cosmopolitan with Virtuoso amenities and I was able to check in at the Autograph Lounge which has much more intimate service and they were able to give me a room upgrade on a higher floor. She also sent a nice welcome gift which was delivered to my room the first night. Elizabeth is professional and prompt and always checks in to make sure things are going fine. I'm so glad I found her!

One of my friends recommended Elizabeth to me after she and her boyfriend had taken a trip with Elizabeth's help. My husband and I loved our friend's trip so much that we had to (almost!) replicate. Elizabeth worked with us every step of the way in order to tailor our 2-week trip to our liking. She had suggestions for everything (scheduling, restaurants, tours, etc.). She even made edits to our trip after other visitors had reporting not liking a particular tour, which we really appreciated. Lastly, she threw in a little surprise for us to ensure our trip was amazing and everything we hoped for. Thanks Elizabeth - we look forward to working with you again soon!

Elizabeth helped my family plan our recent trip to Norway, and it was truly our best trip ever! Elizabeth was fantastic—knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, and enjoyable to work with. The arrangements she made for us went flawlessly, and were exactly what our family needed and wanted. She gave great advice, and she also listened to our input, helping us put together a trip we will never forget. Her service didn’t end once the arrangements were complete—she followed through to make sure each detail came together, making the trip extra special. We highly recommend her!

Advisor. Planning partner. Cheerleader!

By: Beck

Reviewed on: 12 Jul 2019

Elizabeth is an attentive and creative advisor. She listens well to understand exactly what your expectations and dreams are for your trip and offers well-researched options in your price range. For me that meant keeping things flexible, affordable, comfortable AND memorable. (A tough combination!) Yes she is well-informed and organized. Yes, she is patient. Yes she is a good communicator. But most importantly, Elizabeth is enthusiastic. She makes planning a trip an exciting and enjoyable part of the adventure. FYI she is also very calm and helpful if/when countless airline cancellations/delays ( from the airline you booked before consulting with her) throw a monkey wrench into your plans.

Elizabeth was very helpful contacting management at the hotel where I reserved a room for extended days before and after my Hawaii tour. She arranged for early checkin and upgraded my reserved room which was a wonderful surprise! She also recommended a tour company in Hawaii which was very reliable, punctual, and informative. I would certainly contact Elizabeth for future travel plans as she is thorough and knowledgeable. She has a network of experts to contact for travel plan suggestions if she has not had the experience herself. Thank you for your valued assistance, Elizabeth!

Found Elizabeth on the virtuoso website. She already had excellent reviews, which was the reason that we took her for a “test drive”. It was a relatively simple “starter kit” trip which she handled very well, demonstrating efficiency, knowledge and value consciousness. We will continue to use her services going forward.
