My Background

Growing up in Belgium, I developed a curiosity for cultural diversity—having been encouraged to travel, and going from place to place has always felt customary. I became interested specifically in soft adventure while working on a college thesis when the Berlin wall came down. I created programs designed to stimulate youth into travel, where combing local cultures, exploring nature, and promoting personal growth fosters compassion. From here, a career in travel came very naturally.

When I travel the world, I expect great customer service. I know you do, too, so I take great pride in being your personal travel concierge. I specialize in Europe and Virtuoso’s VAST program,creating adventure travel to Africa, the Americas, and Asia. I believe that designing an exceptional travel experience starts with a white canvas. This canvas progressively brightens with passion, innovation, honesty, and excellence only because I get to know you. Ultimately, it becomes a tailor made masterpiece!

Can Always Count on Her

By: RR

Reviewed on: 25 Nov 2013

Pascale has helped us with several trips, and the latest was another great success. From room upgrades to Virtuoso amenities, she made sure we were taken care of. It was our first visit to Prague, and the smooth transition to our hotel made the trip that much more enjoyable.

Very pleased with her knowledge and advice

By: TomD

Reviewed on: 07 Jan 2014

We are going on our first European Tour next fall (2014) and, as "greenies", Pascale has been invaluable in assisting us. The combining of ancestral homeland visit (Slovenia) with a coastal Croatian cruise took more planning than normal situations. That is were Pascale provided excellent guidance !

Fantastic experience

By: Fishwife

Reviewed on: 19 Jul 2014

Pascale is an extremely conscientious travel consultant, and we are not the only ones who think so. A number of our friends have given her high marks as well. The ship, crew, food and itinerary were all wonderful, beyond expectations. We couldn't imagine letting anyone else to arrange our travel.

Great Trip!

By: TomBeck

Reviewed on: 19 Aug 2014

We contacted Pascale to help with planning our first European vacation based on the recommendation of a friend that has used her services many times. Pascale is located on the west coast and we are on on the east coast, which was not a hindrance at all in the process. She is very responsive and accessible via email and phone in both the planning process and during the trip. Pascale came up with suggested trips based on extensive questioning to determine our interests. She was very patient answering questions and addressing all requested modifications. It was great to have a bound itinerary with maps and recommendations to refer to during the trip. Having all of our transfers prearranged relieved a lot of anxiety. As did knowing that her suggestions were based on her own travel experiences. The hotels that Pascale chose were outstanding in both quality and location. Places that we would highly recommend.

Responsive, Knowledgeable and Cordial Service

By: Bill&Linda

Reviewed on: 25 Oct 2014

As a European living in the U. S., Pascale understands the expectations and needs of the American tourist. For us, she listened carefully to our key interests, style of travel and budget. She designed a program perfectly aligned with our parameters. We had a last minute snafu develop with the hotel that caused a late change in plans, that was orchestrated quickly and satisfactorily, indicative of Pascale's commitment to quality service.

Week in Kauai

By: TomP

Reviewed on: 04 Jan 2015

The lodgings at Koloa Landing at Poipu Beach were first rate--quality construction and lots of room, nice outdoor area. I'd recommend it to anyone. Captain Andy's Na Pali boat trip was FABULOUS, the highlight of the whole trip--lots of whales and dolphins and a great guide. The Wailua Kayak trip was also excellent. BUT, the Smith's Garden Luau was a bit of a stinker--the food was dull and the whole event smacked of a church social, so we actually left about halfway through. We had been to a really good luau before, and this one was just really poor. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. Overall, very pleased with having Pascale lift the burden of trip planning from our shoulders.

Expert Personalized Service

By: Sofia

Reviewed on: 09 Jan 2015

Pascale recently planned a trip to Ireland for New Year's Week. Now this is not necessarily the best time to visit the Emerald Isle because of the cold, damp weather but we were attending a family wedding in Donegal. Pascale was very gracious in working with a limited structure of events and cities in North West Ireland and still managed to give us her unique personalized touch on all of our arrangements. The highlights of our trip were the special hotels she chose for us in Galway and Dublin and the travel book listing all the sites to see while we were there. I highly recommend Pascale for those seeking a unique travel experience.

Fabulous family vacation

By: Rod123

Reviewed on: 27 Feb 2015

Pascale did a fantastic job at understanding what our family likes and doesn't and arranging the perfect holiday for us. We stayed in a beautiful resort, swam with dolphins, explored Sayulita and just generally hung out at the beach. Pascale made sure our travel and stay were as painless as possible. Given it was our first trip to Mexico she also did a great job of helping us understand what to expect and what to watch out for. Thanks Pascale!

Supreme attention to detail

By: Don

Reviewed on: 19 Jun 2015

We presented Pascale with a proposed agenda for a central European river cruise and asked for her input. She provided this of course as she had before, but also suggested that we change the arrival port city to save ~$1000 in air fare, changed the river cruise company to AMA Waterways who had launched a new ship, located a hotel in Prague located on the verge of the scenic Old Town, and made arrangements for a private tour for the four travelers to places we had never considered much less had ever heard of (Kalstejn Castle, Karlovy Vary, and Kunta Hora). When our return flight from Budapest left at a very early hour, she split the return trip to stay overnight at the 5 star immense Sheraton airport hotel in Frankfurt. All went as planned until the private tour guide in Karlovy Vary did not arrive. While on her way back from her trip to Costa Rica she filed a claim on our behalf and negotiated a credit posted to our account before we even got home. One cannot beat such service.

Seamless execution and good judgment


Reviewed on: 10 Jul 2015

Pascale did all of the work planning my husband and my trip to Iceland - which is exactly what we were looking for! She did a great job creating an agenda and getting everything booked. I think she did a nice job thinking about where we would like to stay and what we would like to see on our vacation. Also, great communication. Highly recommended.

what does this mean?

By: Karen

Reviewed on: 03 Sep 2015

Pascale helped us plan a trip to Europe - 4 countries in 8 days! Everything went perfectly, the transfers were smooth, the hotels were excellent, and having private guides in each country to make sure we were fully immersed and got to see everything we wanted was key. The guides were incredibly knowledgeable and worked hard to make sure our teenagers were also engaged in what we were seeing. All and all a very busy, but very enjoyable trip. We can't wait to go back and dive deeper into Austria and the UK!

Small Request, Big Memories!

By: Karen

Reviewed on: 11 Dec 2015

We head to NYC one weekend each Holiday Season as a family and stay in a nice hotel, grab a special dinner, and see a show. We've always planned these ourselves as we live nearby and are familiar with the city but this time we thought we'd see if Pascale could help us make it extra special - and she did! We were upgraded at the Carlyle Hotel which was a lovely old traditional hotel that has been well-maintained, and we had a delicious surprise delivered to our room with the Managers regards. I would highly recommend leveraging Virtuoso for even your simplest trips - their connections definitely add value and Pascale got the reservation in a flash.

Delightful and charming hotel

By: Michelle

Reviewed on: 26 Jun 2016

Our hotel stay was perfect. The service was outstanding. The hotel provided us with wonderful recommendations and directions. We enjoyed complimentary wine and a cheese platter in the evenings. Breakfast was a relaxing start to the day. I especially enjoyed the coffee and pastries. The room was very comfortable. I would stay here again. Thank you Pascale for recommending such a beautiful hotel in a great location.

Great Planning ! Again !!

By: Tom & JoAnn D.

Reviewed on: 12 Aug 2016

Thanks to Pasquale everything came off as planned - as novices we were a little apprehensive (only our second real "tour") - even though we used Pasquale before this was a 21 day combined land and sea tour with many more opportunities for "missteps" (of our own doing) - it didn't happen - everything "clicked" - what a great journey and adventure !

Fabulous trip!

By: Tuli12

Reviewed on: 16 Aug 2016

Pascale was absolutely wonderful the whole process of planning this trip, even before we were entirely sure what we wanted to do. She helped us to not only find the trip of our dreams but also took care of all the details to make the trip go flawlessly. We were in Iceland for 8 days on a walking and hiking tour along the southern coast of the country. The trip was very nicely organized and had a great flow. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to answer questions. We had the perfect amount of planned time vs down time. My husband was worried about having an itinerary, but he ended up loving the balance of planned and unplanned built into the trip. We were able to see so many more amazing things because of this trip than we would have if we planned it on our own, so many amazing hikes that would have been very difficult to find. We are so pleased! It was a wonderful trip and it was wonderfully planned. Thank you!

Great Trip

By: KW

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2016

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. It was our first. The design of the ship with a medium capacity (about 1000 passengers) seemed like the ideal size. It was the perfect way for us to get to know all our friends better. Really enjoyed my Eggs Benedict each morning.

Not Recommended

Pascale was full of excuses

By: Jo

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2018

Pascale started out fine . However, as we got closer to the cruise Pascale was supposed to contact us to set up our excursions. She did not. When I emailed her to ask where the communication breakdown was she started to explain to me that a medical issue with her daughter was her priority. My excursions were not. I can empathize with people‘s personal lives. But to try and make me feel guilty about asking why we weren’t contacted? Not very professional. I would think my request could have been forwarded to another person in her office to assist us while she dealt with her personal issues. I would not recommend Pascale.

Pascale LeJeune

By: Kim Rowe

Reviewed on: 08 Oct 2018

Pascale custom designed our trip to France based on the wine regions I wanted to see. She planned a day with a private wine guide in Beaune that was probably the best Grand Cru tour imaginable. All of the pick ups and drivers and train tickets were scheduled. She also arranged a small group, no line, guided tour at the Eiffel Tower. And the small group of eight to Giverny and Versailles was so educational and had a lovely lunch as well. Pascale helped us with our trip to Australia many years ago. I highly recommend Pascale LeJeune! Ps... she was very patient with some changes that came up in our itinerary plan.

Dover-Calais and Normandy Trip Plus Airfare SEA-Eur-SEA

By: Gary

Reviewed on: 11 Nov 2018

It was easy to work with Pasquale whether by phone or by email. She made good recommendations about places to visit and arranged for us to stay in very suitable hotels in communities with excellent dining opportunites. She helped us rent a car in Calais and helped get us to Bordeaux from Nantes by air. She provided excellent day-by-day trip descriptions as well as all the coupons or certificates we needed for our vehicle and the occasional guide, e.g. a day at Omaha and Utah beaches.

Chistmas in the Cotswolds

By: Don

Reviewed on: 10 Jan 2019

Pascale has arranged several trips for us and this 18 day trip to England for the holidays was just the last one. She and my daughter have been friends for a long time and so Kathleen had very specific requests and places to visit based on her internet searches. The result was magical. And yes you might ask what happens when it all goes wrong? Being in an eight hour different time zone was a challenge but when our prepaid hired driver never showed up to get us to our hotel in London Pascale had our credit card reimbursed before the day was out.

Stop Here for the Best Treatment and Experience

By: WonderWoman

Reviewed on: 16 Feb 2019

I can not recommend enough to have Pascale handle your travel plans. I've worked with many in the travel industry and have never experienced such step by step care starting with her excellent active listening skills. Her knowledge, expertise, understanding, and her above and beyond effort is extraordinary. She is dutiful to check in, touch base, and follow up making certain our itinerary is/was working well for us. Each transition was so well handled with such ease and comfort that we traveled stress free and 100% satisfied. We had no surprises as she also spent a lot of time giving us clear directions and expectations. We have planned our own trips spending so a lot time in research when one call to Pascale would have given us so much more free time to do other important things. Not to mention she was meticulous in making our vacation positive, fulfilling, and satisfyingly designed to perfection! Pascale is simply the best!

Another Great Trip With Pascale LeJeune's Help!

By: Gazza

Reviewed on: 04 Mar 2019

Very easy whether by email or phone. On really complicated adventures she comes by and we review the booklet she normally prepares describing all the arrangements. She has helped us plan and execute entire trips from start to finish, or, she has helped up plan and execute trips on either end of a trip we have booked with another tour group, or, sometimes she arranges our flights both ways rather than have the tour operator do it. She is flexible and creative and has a great wealth about travel overseas.
