New Travel Advisor Blair Kochar was amazing

By: TB

Reviewed on: 24 Oct 2017

We had a fantastic experience working with Blaire on our Italy trip. Besides the great recommendations, planning and help with our 15 year anniversary trip, Blaire also helped us reschedule the entire trip when it was delayed due to Hurricane Harvey that hit Houston. With her help we were able to move the entire trip at almost no additional cost and had a great time visiting Cinque Terre and several other Italian treasures. It was a great balance of physical activity, cultural experience, food/wine and fun. We highly recommend Blaire's professional services and intend to use her again. Arrivederci!

Great Trip to South Africa

By: John Wagner

Blaire selected and helped us book 4 absolutely wonderful hotels. The highlight was our four nights in an incredible safari lodge that we consider to be the highlight of our trip. We also had various other excellent experiences such as hiking, wine tasting, mountain biking, and many fine meals. We would recommend visiting this country to anyone who asks.

Blaire helped me and my college girlfriends plan our 50th Birthday Girls’ Weekend. She listened to our wish lists for what we wanted to do and worked with our budget. The location she suggested was exactly what we wanted and she was able to throw in many “extras” that we would not have know about was a trip of a lifetime.

I would HIGHLY recommend Blaire Kochar as a travel advisor! She was very organized, thorough, personable and patient. She not only helped arrange our booking at The Shore Club for our stay, but also recommended the best excursion company for a day out on a catamaran which was incredible! I've spread the word to friends and family that if you'd like the best in luxury travel, contact BPK!!

Great 30th Birthday Trip

Blaire made my 30th birthday trip so special! Upon arrival, the hotel staff had decorated my room with balloons and 'Happy Birthday' confetti. It was such a nice surprise! And so was the complimentary bottle of champagne that arrived shortly thereafter! I really appreciated that Blaire went above and beyond to make my trip the most memorable one yet. I can't wait to go on another trip so we can have Blaire help us out again!

Couldn't have made this trip without her

Blaire made the entire process of planning our honeymoon so wonderfully easy from start to finish and we highly recommend her! We didn't even know Bora Bora was a viable possibility for our trip until she brought it up as an option. The travel time was shorter than we thought it would be, and we are so glad she told us about it. We had a worry-free, first-class honeymoon experience thanks to Blaire. The excursions, the resort, the logistics - everything was planned out for us so we could just enjoy our trip. The value of the service she provided far exceeded our expectations. We have traveled quite a bit, and have never experienced service like this. She ensured every transfer, every interface along the way, every experience would be first class. She took care of all the details and made it so easy for us to travel internationally. When we had questions, she always answered them quickly and provided great insights and alternatives. We look forward to working with Blaire again!

Russell Trip

By: Russell Family

Reviewed on: 17 Sep 2018

This was my first time using a travel agent. It was nice to have someone to ask questions to and get tips, but I'm not sure there is much value in it since it was just booking hotels/car in this case. I think the value would come form having someone who is an expert in that location (like the Disney agents) or for that type of trip. We were planning a family trip with a toddler in tow and wished we would have been given better information on the two different resorts we booked. We would've switched it around to spend more time at the first place since that was more family oriented - while the second place had beautiful views, it felt a bit oversold to us and not the best fit for trip with a toddler. I also would have liked to have been told how much more rain the north side of the island gets vs the south and that some of the towns in the north were shut down due to the April floods. I would've thought having a travel agent would have removed those surprises.

Great experience

I have never used a travel agent before but, after this experience, I will use Blaire for all of my trips! It was so nice not to worry about the reservations, transportation, etc., especially in a foreign country.

Blaire Kochar was absolutely amazing planning our Napa trip. She knew the best hotels to stay and made great recommendations. She was super quick checking availability and didn't stop until we had our hotel secured. She's extremely easy to work with and someone you want to call your friend. Not only did she plan our amazing trip but she also had a very sweet surprise waiting for us in our room - delicious wine and snacks.

Blaire was amazing through the process of planning our perfect honeymoom! She found the things that were important to us, such as a plunge pool, all adult (we were going over thanksgiving!!), and a place to be active but also relax.

She was also there every step of the way even when we had an issue with transportation when we got there.

Blair was amazingly easy to work with. She listened to all the wants, concerns, restraints from the couple and planned an amazing honeymoon. The groom does not see well, cannot drive. He did not want his bride to have to drive. Blair had it all worked out with a wonderful group of drivers/cars at each location. They were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable. The drivers were available to take the couple anywhere they desired to visit in the area. The resorts visited were among the best the couple had ever stayed in. All the employees were helpful without being overbearing. The app made the handling of the train tickets so very easy. No fuss, no worry.

Blaire made the entire process so easy! She really listened to our "wishlist" (and budget) and kept within the parameters. She had great suggestions for excursions and tours that we were not aware of. Any questions were promptly responded to (and there were a lot!!!) and she was thoughtful in bringing up questions we didn't even know we had! Her attention to detail was spot on and she even followed up with us along the way, making sure everything was going well - that is customer service! The "treats" that awaited us in our hotel rooms were a nice bonus, as well! Our family vacation was for two weeks and I was intimidated planning on my own, with the various locations we were visiting and everything we wanted to see. The entire trip was seamless - the whole family was happy with everything we did, everywhere we stayed and every restaurant recommended - how often does that happen?!?! We definitely give our trip, and Blaire, 5 stars!!! Thank you Blaire!!!

Best Travel Advisor

My husband and I both work stressful jobs, so enjoying stress-free vacations (from planning to execution) is critical to us. We have used several travel advisors in the past, many of them affiliated with Virtuoso, but none have been easier to work with than Blaire. Because Blaire also has personal knowledge of the challenges of working in the corporate world, she's able to deliver a level of service to the busy professional that can simply be described as "above and beyond." The level of attention and detail she ascribes to each itinerary is excellent, and she goes out of her way constantly to make sure her clients receive good care at every property. Others constantly comment on how much better our vacations appear to them, and that's because Blaire does all of our planning! Blaire is the only travel advisor we will consider using in the future. After all, if you're going to be spending money on vacation, you might as well get the best of everything, and Blaire is certainly the best.
