My Background

Do you enjoy exploring the world as much as I do? I believe life is an adventure and here are a few I've experienced around the world: white water rafting on the Futaleufu River in Patagonia; climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; and snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef with a marine biologist. While others were learning cursive I was busy spotting the Big Five on safari 3 times (And you guessed it - I don't like to write in cursive). I've played tag with sea lions in the Galapagos; tried to get the guards at Buckingham Palace to smile; climbed the Eiffel Tower in Paris; sampled gelato in Rome; and survived the hairpin turns on the Amalfi Coast. I saw the remnants of the Holocaust in Poland and celebrated Independence Day in Jerusalem, Israel. Of course, I love our country and have visited many of our 50 US states. So, what do you say? I know you and I will create your adventure filled with priceless memories. Let's get started - where do you want to go next?

Great Follow Up

Josh did a great job setting up my cruise and his follow-up was exceptional

Great GetAway

By: PJN of Texas

Reviewed on: 21 Nov 2016

Josh suggested for a weekend getaway The Inn & Spa at Loretto in Santa Fe, along with some other places. The area and property in Santa Fe looked to meet our wants and style and he made the arrangements. It was a great weekend and the benefits that came from booking with Virtuoso made it even more enjoyable.

We were looked after on all accounts. Any questions we might have had he was very prompt in answering. Very personable and if he wasn't sure of an answer, he found out and let me know straight away... A pleasure to work with. Great job!!! Thanks Josh. Great holiday!!

Unforgettable Greece trip!

By: Philadelphia Newlyweds

Reviewed on: 06 Dec 2016

We had not worked with a travel agent before and were hesitant to do so, but with all the details leading up the wedding we decided to look at Virtuoso for our honeymoon. Josh reached out right away and very conveniently communicated with us over chat, email, phone and text on our terms. He understood our idea of a perfect honeymoon and put together really personalized proposals for us to consider. We chose to split our time between Santorini and Crete per Josh's recommendation and we are glad we did! We had a good experience before the trip but we realized we made the right choice once we landed in a Greece. From the airport to the hotel and beyond, we were treated like royalty, enjoyed upgrades, unbelievable service and experiences that we will always remember. We plan to reach out to Josh for our next trip now that he has raised the bar!

Josh was great. I emailed him for a last minute Bali trip after reading about him online. He exceeded my expectations by quickly responding to my emails and assisting me in booking my reservation. There were some last minute changes but Josh was great in accommodating me. I am currently in the process of planning my next getaway with Josh. I strongly recommend him to anyone wishing to plan a memorable vacation.

New Zealand Honeymoon

By: Koch

Reviewed on: 10 Apr 2018

Josh was fantastic to work with. We talked about what we wanted to see or do and he worked it into a wonderful itinerary. He kept us up to date with any chances that came up and answered all of our questions. When we had flight interruptions due to weather, he helped rearrange our flights and that helped minimized stress. Our trip was a memorable one for sure and we are very pleased with everything. Thank you Josh for everything you have done for us.

TEN STARS --->Incredible!

By: Angela J Jones

Reviewed on: 25 Sep 2018

The time that we landed at the Beijing airport, we had a person that greeted us to walk us to a secret location within the airport to leave in our already waiting Rolls Royce. The royalty treatment began the moment we walked off the plane, and it did not end till we checked out from The Peninsula. This hotel was off the charts fancy! I have never stayed in such a place that walked you into your room to check you in, and then proceeded to go over all of the super techy things that go along with their rooms. Everything was hands down the most amazing experience I have ever had in a hotel room. The service, the staff, the attentiveness, the food, the drinks, the live music, the feeling of being on cloud nine is nothing short of spectacular! In love with The Peninsula and all that it stands for...

Incredibly accessible and communicative

By: Liza and Alex

Reviewed on: 11 Aug 2018

Josh was so knowledgeable about the area but also incredibly patient with us and our millions of questions. We changed plans a lot throughout the course of the process and he was always flexible and understanding. He “got” us and understood perfectly what we as a couple were hoping to achieve on the trip. I didn’t feel like he was giving us the canned tourist package that was a safe bet. We loved working with him and know how much we asked of him. Highly recommend !!

Josh King is the most attentive travel agent I have ever worked with, I always knew if there was any problem at all, I could email and he would respond in seconds (literally seconds). When I would request certain rooms that I have seen on Google, he will make every attempt at getting me exactly what I want. I feel as if I have a magic genie at my finger tips, eager to make traveling easy and comfortable, anything that I want, within reason of course, he would find a way to make it possible. I will never travel without him, that's for sure!

Five star luxury in Italy

By: Louie

Reviewed on: 09 Oct 2018

We have worked with Josh on several trips to date and they have all been fabulous . I always prefer to do some research on my own and then approach Josh for his expertise and advise. He is attentive to details and always responsive to our requests for advise or direction. On this last trip Josh suggested the Villa Cora in Florence Italy. It actually surpassed our expectations in terms of beauty, service and location. Our only regret was not having more time at the hotel before we had to continue our itinerary. Josh is always available for consult or assistance even while we travel which is a great comfort in case an unexpected issue arises. We are already planning our next excursion with him and bringing along 8 friends!

Great. Very responsive and attentive. Great ideas and suggestions! Even if an idea did not work, he was cool with that and gracious. Much appreciated. The property upgraded us upon arrival because of Josh and Virtuoso and we had an amazing 3 BR Villa on the beach!! So pretty and so great! We loved our time at the villa because it had a pool and a hot tub and that made it great! Definitely made it extra special. Had great dinner reservations thanks to Josh and overall we would highly recommend him.

Great Family Trip to Thailand!

When starting to plan our trip, we started working with another travel agent who was not responsive and left us concerned about planning a trip half way around the world with them. We decided to switch agents - and we are definitely glad we did! Josh was a pleasure to work with and always responsive. All his recommendations are great from tours to accommodations. Our local tour guides also were amazing! I would highly recommend Josh for your upcoming trip (we are already planning our next one with him!).

Memorable New York City 21st Birthday Trip!

By: Priscilla

Reviewed on: 08 Feb 2020

Josh King was a responsive, friendly, and knowledgeable travel agent who secured the Virtuoso discount for our daughter's 21st birthday trip to New York City. Josh secured our stay at a 5 Star luxury hotel in Manhattan for the price of 2 nights with the 3rd night being free and there was complimentary (free) continental breakfast every day! He made restaurant and other celebration suggestions. He made an afternoon tea reservation for us and was willing to make any and all reservations or other arrangements for us. I recommend Josh King to other travelers because he will listen to your requirements for your trip and he will work hard to ensure that your trip is memorable.
