We cancelled the Fairmont Whistler reservation and instead went to the Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria on Vancouver Island. Karen did an excellent job with the cancellation and re booking as well as other reservations to and from Victoria. I will continue to use Karen as well as Virtuoso in the future.

Best Trip Ever

Our all girls trip exceeding or expectations to the fullest. This was the first time it was all woman, the husband's normally tag along when we travel and this was definitely the best one we have had so far. Can't wait to plan the next one and Karen will definitely be our go to travel agent. We have used Karen before but someone else handled the details and it was years ago. That trip then was spectacular and this one was phenomenal so our next trip she will be called for the planning. Thank you for all your help. Planning a trip with 8 ladies can be difficult but she remained professional at all times.

Karen was great to work with. She was super responsive, gave a lot of information for various requests we had, and I always received a response within hours with all the needed information. We planned the trip 9 months prior and everything went smoothly. Highly recommend working with Karen.

She was very helpful and answered all my questions I had. I probably sent 10 emails because I had never traveled to this extent before and she was very patient with me. She answered emails very quickly! Everything in the trip from the flight, check in, check out, driver, everything, was perfect. 100% recommend and I am definitely using her for my next trip!
