Lisa is always knowledgeable and accessible about every aspect of a trip. Regardless of the level of travel, business, pleasure, family, etc she understands our wants and needs and can advise us to make the best fit. We recently went to Shutters on the Beach, and it was exactly what we were looking for this trip. Thanks for consistent and friendly help and advise. You make each trip better by being a part of it!

Quintessential Professional

By: Discerning Traveler

Reviewed on: 16 Dec 2017

I have been working with Lisa for over 25 years, and she never disappoints! She is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and quick to respond to all inquiries. She knows my travel style, and always recommends the perfect fit for me and my family. She handles absolutely everything for us, and always provides us with wonderful recommendations and her restaurant recommendations are always spot on. On the rare occasion, there is a travel snafu (flight delays, cancellations, problem with hotel), Lisa rectifies the situation quickly and efficiently. I can't say enough about this incredible travel professional. Virtuoso is lucky to have her!
