My Background

Bob Watson has been in the travel business for 30 years, having established Watson & Watson, Ltd. in 1985 with his late wife, Pat. Initially they drew on their personal travel experiences and subsequently developed a reputation for selling what they had experienced.

As a member of the Travelers Century Club, Bob has visited 183 countries or island groupings. A turning point in his career happened in 1995 when Watson & Watson Ltd became a member of API, later to become Virtuoso. It was a perfect marriage as both organizations are committed to the sale and promotion of luxury travel. Bob became active in the organization serving as the first chairman of the air committee, then a long-standing member of the hotel committee; subsequently elected to consecutive 3 year terms to the Member Advisory Board with responsibility of overseeing the Hotel & Resort Program.

He has been honored for his work within the Northeast region with "The Chowder Bowl'; following that with the coveted "Ruby of Siam" Award" given to the Virtuoso member who distinguishes himself (or herself) through service to the network and the travel industry. Bob has also been recognized by the Virtuoso suppliers as "Most Admired Advisor," and is a frequent addition to the Travel + Leisure "A-List" of the top travel agents. He is a member of several advisory boards and has keen interest in the promotion and selling of Luxury travel in all of its phases.
