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!

Elizabeth has planned several trips for my family and each one has been better than the last! She outdoes herself every time and is a joy to work with!

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!

Thanksgiving getaway

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.

Australia Tour 2017

By: Ryan Brauchler


Reviewed on: 07 Jan 2018

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

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.

Fourth trip booked with Elizabeth Clyde

By: Traveler22


Reviewed on: 26 Feb 2018

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!

Easy planning

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.

Review of Italy planning

By: D&B


Reviewed on: 15 May 2018

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. We were very pleased with the choice of hotels, both in quality and locations in the locations we visited in Venice, Rome, Florence, Sorrento and Bologna. We recommend her services to others!!

We've done 4 trips now with Elizabeth and every one has been amazing. I am already planning my next trip with her. We have also recommended Elizabeth to several of our friends and work colleagues who now also use her services. We wouldn't plan a major vacation without her!
