My Background

I have loved being a hero for clients! How?

a. Sharing personal, extensive experiences and destination knowledge for the past 20 years, while planning travel personally customized for clients. Like: having lunch in a private residence in Italy or meeting a fashion designer to see her new line of clothing in Provence or playing golf with Billy Casper on a golf-themed cruise or meeting a personal shopper in Venice.

b. Asking MY contacts for VIP treatment for clients with upgrades and special amenities

c. Monitoring my clients' travels and caring about them as I would my own family.

I am frequently invited to Host for Virtuoso Voyages on the Premier Cruiselines where I meet Virtuoso clients from all over the world and host them for a VIP cocktail reception and a full day excursion with lunch in a local port of call. I love doing this professional hosting.

A recent trip to New Zealand included:Jetboating, helicopter tour of Milford Sound, visit to Otahuna Lodge, a trout fishing adventure on Lake Taupo on a private yacht and a visit to the original bungy jumping site

One of my favorite clients, Beth Skudder, says: "I wouldn't dream of traveling without Patty's arrangements. She always plans exactly what we love and she is extremely knowledgeable and caring."

Patty, Thank you so much for arranging our exceptional trip to the Pacific Northwest! It's such a beautiful area. We hiked Grouse Mountain, walked the Calipano Suspension Bridge, followed some humpback whales in Victoria, and hiked around Mt. Rainier. Our accommodations were wonderful. Thank you again! Eric

Professional Personal Attention

The Viking Cruise was excellent. My husband and I learned a lot about the Balkan states while sailing on the Danube. Our stateroom was well maintained and the food excellent. The staff was most gracious at all times. We had some weather delays in our trip from our Memphis airport and in Atlanta. A call to Patty Calvert and her staff reassured us that we were rebooked and the trip would continue, and it did. These 12 days were exceptional, and we hope to book another river cruise with Viking in the coming months.

We knew what we wanted for our 10th anniversary get away but didn't know where to find it. Patty knew exactly where, and how, we should travel, and took care of all the arrangements like a true professional. We always check with Patty whenever we make travel plans, and are never disappointed when booking through her. Thanks Patty!

Hawaiian Super Vacation

By: Family Traveler

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2014

During the summer of 2014, our family of 5 (children's ages of 14, 13, & 5) completed a fantastic 12 day trip to Hawaii. While always challenging to plan trips that are enjoyable for parents as well as each of the children, Patty was successful! We spent 2 days in Oahu and 9 in Maui. Our accommodations on both islands were superb. Our activities, and there were many, allowed us to experience the islands in many different ways. We had a great trip and are very happy we made the investment to create our family's own Hawaiian memories! Patty hit a home run once again... Thank you Patty for all you do to create experiences for our family.

Help When I Needed It

By: Preds Fan

Reviewed on: 03 Oct 2014

I'm typically a do-it-yourself type of traveler as I prefer to spend airline and hotel points vs. actual cash. But for some things cash is necessary and when I need help, Patty's always willing to point me in the right direction. Whether it's pointing me to a website or putting me in touch with a local Virtuoso agent at my destination, she always gives me exactly what I need to have a terrific vacation. Thanks, Patty!

An outstanding trip and itinerary planned by seasoned experts!

By: Two Twenty-Something Travelers

Reviewed on: 03 Mar 2016

With the help of Patty's Getaways & Bucher Travel Inc., my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days in Switzerland. Our itinerary included everything we were seeking: adventure, luxury, action, beauty and authentic, local experiences. Our travel experts made sure we enjoyed the best seats on the trains we took so that we wouldn't miss a gorgeous view. They arranged efficient and reliable transportation. They hired excellent local guides to provide us with walking tours of the cities we visited. We had a sufficient amount of time in each city to enjoy a few highlights in each place, which included Zurich, Lucerne, Interlaken, Montreux and Geneva. We also took day trips by train into the surrounding mountains. Our Switzerland adventures included wonderful food, gorgeous scenery, mountain hikes, walking tours, snow skiing, chocolate tasting and great hotel accommodations in fantastic locations. We're thankful we had experts arrange our itinerary so that we could enjoy smooth travels!
