I cannot say enough about my experiences with the Virtuosa team. I have been working with them for more years than I will admit to and they are always there to help with a trip. Whether I am traveling for pleasure or business they do it all. Thank you Michele (and Sarah!)

Michele was fabulous! She planned out our entire Paris/Italy trip and made it so special. Her suggestions were right on, hotels perfect, private tour guides were exceptional! I was nervous since we had never traveled to Europe before but she was patient, very organized and always got back to me with questions/concerns very promptly. Definitely will use her again for our next trip....now that we have caught the travel bug!

Michelle has assisted me with my travel needs for several years and has always done a terrific job. She greets one in a most friendly manner and with a great smile! Michelle is very efficient, prompt, great with suggestions, ideas, and, most of all, dependable. Qualities not quickly found anymore these days! Need literature or brochures? Michelle will get them to you quickly. Wonderful to work with!

My husband and I took our 4 grown children to Hawaii - knowing that this would be most likely our "last family trip" before spouses and grandchildren are added to our family.  Michele as always recommended the best accommodations and activities for our children ages 18-26.It was a trip of a lifetime and are so grateful that we used Michele!  We have used her for many other trips and she never disappoints!  Highly recommend using Michele for any travel plans you may be thinking of taking!

Michele has helped us plan several vacation trips outside the United States.  She understands the type of travel we enjoy and offers professional insights in crafting an itinerary.  On our most recent trip we encountered travel problems due to bad weather and she helped us secure a hotel at our connection.  While I feel confident in handling travel in the US and Canada, Michele is the person we go to when we travel outside internationally.

Michele, thank you for organizing our trip to Hawaii we would never have pulled it off without you. Our largest concern about the entire trip was how all the travel arrangements would go with 6 adults and 3 small children while making the long plane flights and inter island moves during our stay. Looking back, we cannot believe how smoothly everything went and that allowed our entire family to have an incredible experience. All your recommendations were excellent and we look forward to working with you again. Than you. -Matt and family

Michele is always very helpful and answers all questions. She has much knowledge and is able to guide our choices based on what we are interested in and enjoy. She even knew there was a bridge that might slow us down on the way to our cruise ship. Great advice!

Michele did and outstanding job on putting together our trip to Spain. EVerything went well. There was one glitch but it was not her fault rather the company that was suppling the transportation. Properties selected were great. When we had to call from Spain, she made herself available to take the call to answer questions and resolve some small issues. Again, not her fault. She will be following up with one company to help us seek a refund based on the quality of tour and the lack of professionalism of the guide. Would differently use hMichelle again! She does great work and provides timely follow up.

She really listened and matched our trip to our interests!

We have worked with Michele for dozens of travel arrangements both professionally and personally. She has always been responsive, pleasant and thoughtful about our needs. Her expert advice has helped our decision making process immensely. She has never been pushy in trying to get us to go in a direction we preferred not to. She has also been willing to suggestions we make after our travels. Lastly, whenever there has been a problem on a trip, she has helped get it rectified. And she loves chocolate.

Last minute trip to Puerto Vallarta

By: Shelley Juedes

Reviewed on: 22 Mar 2017

Michele is great to work with, she is very helpful and efficient. She finds several travel options for you, all within your price range. Not only does she provide excellent service, she is very friendly when speaking to her. She accommodated us at the last minute and we greatly appreciated that! The all-inclusive was amazing and we may return. Because it is 45-50 minutes from the airport, it's occupancy is only 50%. That meant no waiting to book meals, no waiting for beverages, and first class service from hotel employees. The resort being only 3 years old, had updated rooms and bathrooms. The entertainment at night was very good and the fitness center had newer equipment which were added pluses. If someone is looking for a quiet resort with no "college crowd, " this is the place to go! Thank you Michele for recommending Iberostar Punta Mita and booking the trip for us!

Enchantment Trip to Sedona

She is the best travel agent we have ever worked with in our travel history. We had a long weekend available and at the last minute, wanted to make a trip out of it. She came back with several options including the trip to Sedona. We selected Sedona and the Enchantment Resort. We LOVED the whole thing! Plus, being a Virtuoso Member, we got an incredible upgrade on our room! It had it's own pool!!! Michele nailed it again!!! She knows what we want and what we will enjoy. She's incredible at anticipating our desires, needs and expectations. Then, she delivers and exceeds our expectations. How do you beat that? You just don't.....
