My Background

Kristen Lowrey Larson has been selling travel as a Virtuoso Travel Advisor since October 2014. Her specialties include honeymoons, babymoons and anniversary trips (or what she calls “milestone trips”).

Some of the top destinations she specializes in are Hawaii, Napa & Sonoma, Italy and Southeast Asia.

Kristen’s passion for international travel began with a semester abroad to Florence, Italy while earning a Journalism degree from Pepperdine University. She later returned to Europe to live in Heidelberg, Germany and again in Florence to study art and Italian. Each weekend living abroad was spent exploring Western Europe and developing her travel prowess and troubleshooting skills.

These skills remain important today as she collaborates with clients to create custom itineraries and support her clients from booking to debrief.

“I believe that no vacation time should go unused and any travel dream can become a reality through a Virtuoso Travel advisor.”

The Extra Mile.

By: Gem84c

Reviewed on: 28 Feb 2015

Kristen recently helped me arrange my birthday trip to Vegas for me, my boyfriend and my parents. Not only did she do a fantastic job researching the best accommodation for what I wanted, but she certainly went above and beyond to make every little detail absolutely perfect for my trip. She made all kinds of incredible recommendations from shows to restaurants, even suggestions of what my dad and boyfriend could do while mom and I hit the Bellagio Spa! Kristen is a fantastic travel agent. She certainly went the extra mile to make my birthday memorable, and it was definitely one to remember!! Thanks Kristen, can't wait to start planning the next one!

Fantastic Vacation!

My husband and I were initially planning to only visit Italy, but Kristen suggested a Mediterranean cruise and we are so glad she did. We got to see so much more (Italy, Monaco, France, and Spain) and we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise experience (it was the first cruise either of us had been on). Kristen was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations of what to do and see in each city and she made the planning experience so easy; it was so nice to have someone plan all the details so we basically just had to show up for our vacation. We will definitely be using Kristen in the future and highly recommend her to anyone else!

Highly personalized service!

Kristen Lowery Larson found us a comfortable hotel at an affordable price within close walking distance to public transit, great restaurants and shopping, right in the heart of Zurich. Most importantly, she carefully considered our requests, and found us exactly what we were looking for. I couldn't have done better if I did all the research myself. I very much appreciated her travel expertise and thoughtfulness, and will gladly seek her assistance with future travel plans! It was a pleasure working with her!

Perfect Tour of Scotland and Ireland

By: KSilva

Reviewed on: 13 Apr 2016

Kristen found the perfect tour of Scotland and Ireland for us that allowed us to see everything we wanted to see, plus some. Kristen is very knowledgeable and created multiple itineraries for us before we finally settled on this tour. The tour included everything we wanted to see, plus some places we didn't think we would be able to (the Titanic Museum in Belfast, the Cliffs of Moher). Because it was an organized tour, we did not have to worry about transportation within Scotland and Ireland, or most of our meals. This made the trip even more relaxing and enjoyable. This is the second trip Kristen has planned for us, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a vacation!

Trip of a lifetime with the help of an awesome travel agent!

For my mom and me, going on safari was a lifelong dream. But the planning seemed daunting - neither of us had traveled to Africa before, and there are so many countries, parks, accommodations and package options to choose from. Luckily, we found Kristen through the recommendation of a mutual friend, and things were smooth sailing throughout the entire process! Kristen was extremely responsive via phone and email, answered all of our questions and helped us book the trip of our dreams at a budget that was even lower than we imagined. Kristen is very knowledgeable, caring and thoughtful - she even sent us some safari-friendly clothing as a little gift before we set off! We loved working with Kristen and would highly recommend her to our friends and family for their next big adventure. We hope to work with her again in the near future!

A stress free girl's trip

By: missyby

Reviewed on: 12 Mar 2017

Planning a trip for 5 women sounded overwhelming so I immediately called Kristen. Se knew we wanted to go to Napa and had a budget in mind, that was all Kristen needed to get started. She gave us 4-5 great hotel options all with various benefits and Virtuoso exclusives. She also planned and booked our winery tours and lunch/dinner reservations. I literally did nothing but show up and have a great time. It was great knowing too that if anything went wrong she would fix it. We will be using her again for sure.

Best vacation!

Kristen was great to work with, achieving all of the special requests we had to create our perfect getaway! Then, when we had problem with a connecting flight, she worked to fix that for us too, quickly - and then throughout our trip, we didn't have to worry, or think about it!

We feel fortunate to have worked with Kristen. I asked a myriad of questions and she answered them all in a timely manner. She was well prepared and supportive when it came to changes and indecision with our planning. Kristen did an excellent job of assessing our interests and suggesting a variety of adventures to consider. She was spot-on with restaurant recommendations, as well as taking in some of the local island flavor. I would highly recommend Kristen's services in the future and hope to book another trip with her soon. Thanks Kristen!

Kristen was very helpful and flexible with the planning. We gave her a vague idea of what we wanted, and then she helped us navigate through all of the different options and create an amazing and well thought-out trip for us. She was also available via text, which was super helpful when we were actually on our trip and had questions.

Great research and recommendations!

Kristen was very quick to reply when I was organizing the trip and provided great insights and suggestions along the way.

Kristen is AWESOME!

By: Jackie

Reviewed on: 03 May 2018

She put together a once-in-a-lifetime trip for my Aunt and I. 30 days, 14 flights, Tasmania, Australia, New Zealand and Tahiti. Incredible tours and knowledgeable guides, drivers that picked us up on time every time, she thought of things I had never thought of that either needed to be done, or experiences we should do. The only hitches were things that I changed at the last minute, and she made those changes seem effortless and all went flawlessly. I couldn't recommend Kristen more highly and I've already recommended her to several friends. I will definitely ask her to plan trips for me in the future!

Kristen came highly recommended to us from a close friend. She planned a thoughtful and relaxing babymoon/work trip for me and my husband to Sydney Australia. She created a great itinerary with a perfect combination of rest and play. She also went above and beyond to work with us on last minute reservations due to issues interfacing with our employer's travel requirements. She was incredibly helpful and responsive. We can't wait to work with Kristen again. Thank you so much, Kristen!
