My Background

Hello! My love for travel has brought me to the best in my industry, Virtuoso, so that I may help to personalize and get the most out of each trip you take. When we work together it's important for me to know what yours and everyone traveling's interests are, what's on your bucket list, what experiences do you want to have? The more information I have helps me create a unique, amazing, un-googleable itinerary.

My luxury, boutique agency specializes in group travel for corporate incentive/team building groups, destination weddings, milestone celebrations and small & large yacht charters. I even help others "create" their own group - wine themed, golf, food, etc and help the group leader have an extra revenue stream while traveling for free. Let's chat!

I am always available for questions or for any assistance needed. I love what I do and I hope that shines through when we work together. I can't wait to hear about your future travel ideas and help you cross them off your travel list! Check out my website for more information

Perfection to Paradise

By: Markis

Reviewed on: 01 Apr 2017

This was one of the best experiences my wife and I have had. We travel quite a bit, for both work and personal, and the attention we received from Carissa was unmatched. Carissa truly listened to what we wanted, read between the lines and made thoughtful suggestions at evey single turn. Every piece of the trip was seamless and she checked in with in a thoughtful way to ensure we had all we needed. My wife and I could not be happier with the resort we ended up with, the excursions we chose and the overall experience from start to finish. I will reach out tinCarissa for any and every need going forward and have already began encouraging my family, friends and colleagues to connect with her as well.

Absolute perfection. My wife and I celebrated our birthdays and anniversary with a trip and it was flawless. It covered 3 states, several flights and multiple activities (day and night). It literally could not have been better.

The best travel experience ever

By: Sherry

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2017

Carissa is the most professional, sincere, and talented travel planner that I've ever worked with. She made the planning so easy for us. It was perfectly planned and executed. The app that she provided to track our trip was wonderful and gave us instant contact to her throughout our trip. I feel that Carissa always goes above and beyond the call of duty. Knowing this was our honeymoon, she made special arrangements for us at restaurants and worked with our friends and family to have champagne waiting for us at various places. This was the most incredible trip I've ever had, and I will most certainly use Carissa for any future travel. I've recommended her to everyone. People just don't understand the value of hiring a professional to work with in your travel planning, and I'm hoping to change that by promoting Carissa continually.

Carissa was absolutely the best. Once we told what we wanted out of our trip, Carissa was able to present us with multiple options. If we had any questions, her responses were prompt and knowledgeable. Carissa really impressed us when our initial trip had to be cancelled due to Hurricane Irma. Carissa was able to find and reschedule our trip in less than a week. Carissa exceeded our expectations and we look forward to planning other trips through her.

Greece Trip

Reviewed on: 20 Jul 2018

Carissa was very attentive and professional in helping us plan our trip to Greece for a destination wedding. She made sure to answer all our questions about flights, hotels, etc. and I was impressed with her patience as we did have a lot of questions. We got a spot in the hotel right near the wedding venue thanks to her diligence, and she booked us in a hotel in the heart of downtown Athens, conducive to sightseeing. She went above and beyond to help us get good seats coming back as well. I would recommend Carissa's services, she did a fine job.

Carissa was amazing. She worked with us every step of the way to both give GREAT suggestions, but also was very flexible with us in planning the way we wanted things. She was even available when we were In turkey and the hotel wouldn’t take our credit card and solved the issue for us from abroad. She was responsive and planned everything to the T!

There are truly no words to express how thankful my husband and I are to have been connected with Carissa. After searching for months for someone to help us plan the trip our destination wedding with 65 guests, a mutual friend gave us her info...and thank God they did! Carissa has been nothing short of amazing and has made the process easy and stress free for us. She dealt with issues with the resort, countless changes with guests accommodations, planned excursions for the group, handled transfers, flights, organized everything for our trip to checkout resorts we were considering, and many other aspects of the trip. Carissa treated us like family; as though our wedding was just as important to her as it was to us. She was always available and made us feel as though we were top priority. Her assistance, knowledge, and suggestions helped to make our wedding-moon a dream come true! We will be forever grateful to have worked with Carissa for this trip! We recommend her to everyone!

Carissa is the BEST

By: Sean M

Reviewed on: 03 Jun 2019

We love working with Carissa on all of our travel. This trip was a unique one because she helped us manage room blocks across three hotels for our wedding. This would typically be an up charge from a wedding planner, but Carissa handled everything seamlessly. Not only did she book all of our guests, she provided regular updates on those bookings to us, and helped us negotiate additional rooms when we ran out. She even took care of a last minute cancellation that we would have otherwise been responsible for.

Italy was Awesome!

By: Dan

Reviewed on: 05 Aug 2019

I had wanted to take a family trip to Italy for a long time. Finally, we did it and I owe so much to Carissa for making our vacation everything we hoped for and more. We went from Venice to Rome to Positano over 12 days and every part of it was wonderful. The amount of time she put into helping us plan everything was really appreciated. The hotels, tours, flights, restaurants...everything was thought out based on what we wanted to experience. The one and only time there was a snafu, Carissa was on it. Literally on a Sunday at 6:00 AM her time, she was on the phone with the car service who supposed to be picking up in Naples. It was a simple mistake on their part, and Carissa figured out and made sure our driver was there. I couldn't believe that she was there to help us on Sunday morning like that. My family is now thinking about doing another European trip and for sure our first call will be Carissa.

Grateful we found Carissa!

Amazing Experience!

We were referred to Carissa and she did not disappoint with helping us plan the honeymoon of our dreams! We changed our minds a few times in regards to location and she was very patient with us and gave her professional opinion to help guide us! Carissa took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for and she definitely delivered. We went to the Maldives for two weeks and Carissa was there every step of the way. There was a fire at one of the hotels we booked 8 months before we arrived and within a week Carissa already had new options for us. We had the most unbelievable 5 star trip that felt once in a lifetime. We have recommended Carissa to all of our friends and plan on continuing to reach out to her for all of our future trips!
