We were recently on a trip to Panama that Shonah planned for us. The trip was great. All the transfers and excursions were well planned. We wanted to change hotels early and she contacted the hotels and made that happen for us. We have used Shonah before and will continue to in the future.

Great for business and personal trips.

Shonah responds very promptly to calls. She provides several options to choose from and makes great recommendations. All the paperwork is thorough and complete. I have used her many times and will continue to do so in the future.

We gave Shonah the challenge to send us on a five-day vacation, somewhere with warm sunshine & total relaxation--next week!  She gave us a few options and recommended a resort in the Caribbean that exceeded our expectations.   We had a wonderful, refreshing vacation that we will long remember.  Thank you, Shonah!

The trip was great. We loved the trip up North and the day trips offered in the International Kitchens program were terrific. The cooking school as more of a demonstration than hands on cooking school. There were three serious cooks in the group that left wanting more - but the others were satisfied. I would suggest IK offers a more intense program for those who want to really cook. But nonetheless we so enjoyed our Chef, Joan. Loved learning about the fish auction too. Our guide Jordi was very accommodating and took us to some of the places only he knew having grown up in one of the small towns. He was the type of guide that answered questions when asked - and was great one-on-one. He didn't always make an effort to point things out as we were driving - but I think it was more of a language barrier than a lack of knowledge. A lovely man. Barcelona was great - easy city to get around in and our guide Susanna was very good and I would recommend her to others.

Perfect hotel in NYC!

In planning a last-minute trip to NYC, Shonah found us a perfect hotel--and it was the (busy) weekend of the NY Marathon. The Hotel Plaza Athenee was lovely, in the neighborhood we wanted, and we would return.

wonderful as alaways!

We have used Shonah for several years and have found her so helpful in meeting our family's needs when when helping us choose a travel destination. She has also gotten us some really great deals with several really nice properties as a Virtuoso member. My husband also has used her for years for his business travel and has been very happy. Thanks Shonah!

The recommendation of the Corinthia Hotel in London was spot on. A wonderful hotel! Our room was superbly comfortable. (And, the Corinthia will bill in US Dollars, avoiding conversion fees charged by the credit card company.) Thanks again, Shonah!

Loved the Veendam--friendly and attentive crew, good food, comfortable accommodations, and a lot of talented musicians for our evening entertainment. We found Quebec charming, enjoyed the Bell Museum in Baddeck, and were happy to have had the opportunity to see Acadia National Park. All in all, a relaxing and enjoyable seven days. Lyn13 ,

Shonah took care of our reservations at Rancho Valencia and at Banyon Tree Mayakoba. We were able to check in early and received wonderful service on both trips.
