Michele was very professional and friendly to work with. We traveled to London and really didn't know where we wanted to stay. She made a couple wonderful suggestions of hotels and we settled on one of them. It was exactly where we needed to be and was first class for a great price point. We also wanted to have High Tea while there. Michele found us a perfect place. It was so authentic and first class. Michele is efficient and very good at making recommendations as well as listening to what our needs were. I would definitely use her to help book my next trip.
Outstanding travel planning!!
Reviewed on: 21 Apr 2015
After many years of planning trips on my own working directly with hotels, airlines, etc., I thought I would give a local travel agent a try. We were looking for a different island to check out that was relatively close - Bermuda fit the bill! Michele worked very hard to get us the perfect flights, hotel that we heard good things about, and all airport transfers. When there were hiccups in the booking process, she quickly engaged her network to resolve issues and deliver what she promised. She kept us informed during the entire planning process - and we got some luggage tags to boot! :) If you are looking for an experienced travel agent who can help make your trip a success, look no further than Michele Grace! Thanks for making our anniversary and birthday celebrations memorable!
Persistent and resourceful

Michele tapped into her resources, friends, other travel agents, clients and other travel agencies outside of the country to gather information so we could make the best decisions for our vacation. She also called the hotels where we were staying prior to our arrival and all details were nicely handled. I think her personal touch resulted in excellent room assignments and service.

My fiancee and I had a perfect honeymoon. The island of Antigua was the best spot with two different resorts. Curtain Bluff offered the small family owned resort with lots of services to the premier corporate resort of Jumby Bay. We had some of the best rooms in each place as well as all the activities we could have wanted.
Thanks for a fantastic baby moon!!
Reviewed on: 25 Aug 2015
We called Michele to help setup our baby moon - one last big trip before the arrival of our first child. We've been to many places, but had always wanted to checkout the Maldives. After a brief conversation with Michele explaining what we were looking for, she promptly responded with 5-7 incredible looking options. We selected one and she handled the rest! We visited Maalifushi by Como for 5 nights in mid-August - service, location, food, activities were all fantastic! The hotel staff were all extremely customer service oriented and were genuinely concerned that we were satisfied! Though Michele was traveling quite a bit in the weeks leading up to our trip, she always responded quickly and professionally to my inquiries. Thanks for another fantastic trip! Highly recommended!

Michele arranged our honeymoon in Costa Rica this fall. It was an amazing experience, and her help with the travel, hotel, and any other details we needed information on was invaluable. We will definitely be contacting her again in the future.

Excellent service and advisor!
Reviewed on: 31 Dec 2015
We had a great time on our trip and it started off on the right foot with the great service received from Michele at West U Travel. She found a great resort with exactly what our family was looking for and was great following up when final payment was due and before the trip to make sure everything was in order. The resort was incredible, the room was fabulous and everyone in the family had a great time. I would recommend the Paradisus Resort to any traveling family and I will recommend Michele as an advisor for anyone who wants a great trip with no stress! Thank you Michele for a wonderful Christmas vacation!
Knowledgable, Organized and Experienced Agent

We are thrilled with Michele Grace! Michele worked on three of our most recent international trips: Moscow and St. Petersburg, Russia, Hong Kong and Macao, China, and Cordoba and Buenos Aires, Argentina. Not only finding great bookings for us in luxury hotels, Michele gave perfect recommendations on stellar restaurants and customized tours. We also took full advantage of the Virtuoso amenities in each of our hotels - breakfast, snacks waiting in the room, massage credits and early and late check ins/outs. Our city and history tour in Hong Kong was first rate - and we bypassed hours of lines for the tram to Victoria Peak. The city tour in Buenos Aires was also wonderful. I most appreciate Michele's attention to detail, sage advice on specific accommodations within the cities we visited, and patience in dealing with us in finalizing all the myriad details. A huge plus was that Michele had already traveled to all the places we were booking. Kudos to an exceptional Virtuoso agent!
Thank you for telling us about Virtuoso!!

A wonderful 2 week European river cruise on the Maria Theresa. The dinner for Virtuoso members allowed us to visit with a smaller group. We also had our own tour in Vienna which was unique and the lunch was delicious! We are looking forward to future Virtuosos enhanced trips and will seek out Virtuoso members!

Michele is a first rate travel agent. She is full of great ideas, has extensive travel knowledge, can work with any budget, and will do the work to make sure that every last detail is taken care of. Also, she is very responsive during the planning process and, more importantly, afterward - if you have an issue during your trip, she will be there for you 100%! In addition, she will often get you "freebies" (upgrades, free meals, etc.) that you cannot get on your own. She is my go-to agent and always does an amazing job!
great suggestions and attention to detail; impeccable service!
Reviewed on: 08 Jun 2018
Michele was a top notch advisor from start to finish - from her knowledge of my destinations, great suggestions of things to see and do, to holding my hand in every step of the planning process. Her local connections run deep and she was able to set us up with terrific guides and drivers everywhere we went. Her attention to detail is outstanding, she is always looking to get the best value for my family, whatever our budget, and she even checked in on us during the trip to make sure everything was running smoothly. Plus she was able to get us things like free breakfasts for the whole family that we wouldn't have been able to get if we had booked on our own. I highly recommend Michele for all your travel needs!
