My Background

I was 12 when my grandmother said, "Cheryl, it is a big world out there." She was so right, and I have been so very fortunate to have traveled a lot of it.

Travel to me is about the journey of being part of another culture. One of my most magical trips was hiking, biking and trekking in Bhutan. I work hard at finding the best experience for the highest value for my clients. I particularly love crafting active adventures.

As my client, you will get my extensive travel knowledge of 30 plus years across all 7 continents. You can expect my dedication to crafting once-in-a-lifetime experiences that will meet or exceed your expectations. Continuous follow through with my clients keeps everyone informed about where we are in the planning process. 

Prior to the travel industry I owned and operated a very successful franchise of an international employment agency.  Listening to my clients was critical to my success. Listening to you is key to planning your travel dreams.

Great trip, great advisor

By: DScott19

Virtuoso Travel advisor Cheryl Cashman put together a spectacular vacation for us, starting with two nights in Quito, then 7 nights on the boat while exploring the Galapagos Islands, and ending with three nights at the fabulous Finch Bay resort in the Galapagos. For the price, Ms. Cashman got us a very good deal on a trip we will remember forever. She did all the work "from soup to nuts," including booking all flights, a private guided tour in Quito, an upgraded cabin on the ship in the Galapagos, tips on packing and attire, and suggestions for activities while we were "winding down" at the Finch Bay Resort after a very active expedition in the Galapagos. "Active" is a key word for anyone considering a Galapagos trip, because the itinerary on the Metropolitan Touring boats (ours was La Pinta) is not for the weak or infirm. They keep you moving every day, with snorkeling, hikes, kayaking, glass-bottom boat rides and skiff excursions.

Galápagos trip

Cheryl planned and organised a wonderful trip to the Galápagos. We stayed in a marvellous hotel,the Casa Gangatena,in Quito,where the service and attention to detail was fabulous.The day spent in Quito was led by a Metroplolitan tour guide who was excellent.Involving a local guide we had a fantastic tour of the city taking in its colourful market,artisan religious restorer,chocolate maker and flour miller .we saw its fantastic church and at the heritage centre walked the equator. The next 7 days spent aboard La Pinta were breathtaking.The crew and Naturalists aboard were all helpful and well informed,food and service excellent.All the islands visited had different things to offer and we explored them by hiking,swimming,kayaking and snorkelling. It was a marvellous experience to see the animals and fish so close.. Our trip ended with a stay in the finch bay eco hotel where we could relax and explore at leisure. This was surely the holiday of a lifetime!

Attention to detail

By: PressBoxGuy

Reviewed on: 21 Jan 2017

Cheryl Cashman spent many hours planning every detail of this trip, and her careful attention led to an 18-day vacation in which everything went according to plan. Nothing was left to chance. She is always willing to spend as much time on the phone with you as you want, she pays close attention to your travel preferences, and she is somehow able to produce unexpected free perks for you. In this case, it was a sizeable ship credit on our cruise and a cabin upgrade. She is now my go-to source for all travel planning.

We had a great trip! Started in London then to Barcelona, Seville, Cordoba and Granada. Cheryl and Susan did a perfect job on hotels and travel between our different cities including local tours. Planes, trains and automobiles, at our request, Quite a bit of logistics for them to sort and they did a beautiful job. We look forward to our next adventure. Salud.
