My Background

Born and raised in France and a real passion for travel! I've been living in the Seattle area since 1997 with my husband and our 3 kids. I started working in the travel industry back in 1998. I was then a Travel Advisor for European luxury travels. I joined Virtuoso network in 2003 and plan leisure vacations to all destinations. I'm especially excited to plan trips to France and all across Europe, Hawaii, Mexico and worldwide cruises.

I hold many destination and resort specialist certifications and I am a Preferred Advisor with Four Seasons, Relais & Chateaux, Belmond, Ritz Carlton, Luxury Collection, just to name a few.

I am a River Cruise Specialist and Certified with many cruise lines such as Seabourn, NCL, Silversea, Windstar, Princess, Cunard... and love to send people of cruises around the world.

With these partnerships, I can wow you with upgrades, complimentary breakfasts, hotel credits, and special rates for your travels.

Let me help you create lifetime memories!

My favorite destination is the French Riviera, Provence, Italy, US Virgin Islands, Mexico and wherever the sun shines.

I highly recommend Geraldine to anyone traveling especially 1st timers going abroad.  She was on top of things throughtout the entire process frm researching different vacation packages to keeping us posted on any possible changes. She even did follow up after we returned.  She shows a true interest and makes each client feel like they are her only clients.  I like this about her. Thanks Geraldine!! We will definitely use you and your travel agency for future vacations!!

Geraldine planned a great "stay-cation" for us to stay downtown Seattle at the Fairmont. She arranged for milk and cookies in the room for the kids and fresh fruit for us. We also got gift vouchers as part of the resort package. Geraldine has planned other trips for us and adds her own personal touch with personalized notes and chocolates. Thanks for going the extra mile!

Total Relaxation

By: Bob

Reviewed on: 26 Apr 2015

Our stay at Occidental's Royal Hideaway at Riveira Maya was total relaxation. Room was perfect with a view of the blue carribean, just what we asked for but only a very few rooms have. Our rom was decorated in celebration of our 13th anniversary, unexpected. The grounds were lovely and miticuously maintained. The pools and beach was lovely. But it was the dining that was exceptional. Fantastic menus combined with perfect service. We never left the 'compound' in 8 days. No need to. And Geraldine made it happen.

Great Trip

Geraldine was like having a best friend available while on my two week trip to France. I'm not much of a traveler outside of the US and Eastern Canada, and prior to this trip I had only been to Paris once, and that was twenty two years ago! I'm not young either, so I was nervous about going ahead with my itinerary, which took me from Charles de Gaullie in Paris to the Dordogne area (based in Sarlat per NaPolule Art Foundation) to meet up with other for a week long artists' retreat. Upon my first destination, I was greeted with a welcoming email waiting on my desk from Geraldine who let me know she was on hand if I should need her. She has assured me before the trip that I'd be fine, and she was right! It was as though I had known Geraldine for a long time and I've never met her! This was the trip of a lifetime for me! Thank you, Geraldine!

Friendly, good communication, good price!

I had the pleasure of working with Geraldine recently while planning a trip to France, and I highly recommend her, both for her timely and professional communication and bookings, and for her appropriately tailored selections of hotels and tours. I found her name online and took a chance, and I'm glad I did! She helped with two different hotels that perfectly met my requested needs. In Bordeaux, due to Virtuoso amenities, I received a free fabulous daily breakfast buffet and a spectacular suite upgrade that I would not have been eligible for if I had booked the room myself online. The hotel website had not even shown availability on my dates. Geraldine also booked a private two-day wine tour that included winery visits, tastings, and education, an experience of a lifetime for a wine lover. Additionally, she helped me select a travel insurance policy which gave me peace of mind. Give her a call or send her an email, she is friendly and professional, and works internationally.

I have had Geraldine help me with travel arrangments in the past and she has always been an IMMENSE help. All I had to do is shoot her a mail with some guidance on what I wanted and she provided me with choices. She also reminded me when I had some outstanding actions to take regarding cruise reservations and such and helped me when I had problems. It is always a pleasure to work with her when I'm planning a complex vacation.

Another solid performance

Made a trip out west to the Tetons and Yellowstone. As you may know, reservations for the parks must be made well in advance. we made ours in Nov 15 for a Sept 16 visit. Unfortunately, we ran into a huge overbooking mistake in the Tetons. The hotel, The Jackson Lake Lodge, found us alternate accommodations in the park but it was not what we had prepaid for. Geraldine got involved and got us a substantial reduction in our rate. That's what you expect when you use a travel agent.

Exceptional, attentive, a pleasure to work with.

I just want to take a few minutes to thank Geraldine for the most wonderful trip we just completed. It was truly a trip of a lifetime and Geraldine planning was a huge part in making this happen. From our first meeting she was attentive to our interests even though at the time it was a "work in progress" as to what we really wanted to do. We kind of knew where we want to go but didn't really know much more than that. Geraldine patiently worked with us to define and plan our trip to Paris and London. Offering wonderful suggestions as to what to see and which excursions to take. The hotels in France that she suggest were impeccable, and made for a truly wonderful experience. Geraldine was always aware of our budget and always ready with a great alternative. Geraldine put together a trip that we could never have accomplished and for this we will have her plan our trip to Italy in near future.

Once again, Geraldine planned a great trip for me and a friend, this time to Hong Kong! She helped us select from several hotel options, assisting us in weighing pros and cons. Then with her facilitation, we were able to receive a discount at the Four Seasons Hotel, along with a spa credit and an amazing free breakfast buffet each day (fresh fruit, waffles, dim sum, cheese, smoked salmon, salad, cereals, superb coffee drinks, etc.) that would otherwise have cost at least 40 US dollars a person. We also received a free upgrade to a room on a higher floor with big windows and a tremendous view! She took the time to research transportation options for us from the airport, and helped us buy travel insurance policies. It was a comfort knowing she was there along the way, and I highly recommend her!

2 trips. Great advice

By: Bob

Reviewed on: 20 Mar 2017

Geraldine has been great in planning two big trips. The big one is to Europe this spring. 17 days in western Med. Found great hotels in Sorrento and Rome for our sightseeing their. Then linked us into Silversea cruise from Rome to Barcelona. She really helped on transportation. Getting between sites in Europe can be very tricky from here in US. But she really helped with a quick trip to Punta Cana for my 70th birthday. We nailed down a great ocean front room just 4 weeks before the trip. We have been working with Geraldine for 5 or 6 years and she now knows what we like so we are always satisfied.

This is about our 6th trip with Geraldine. And this one was a dozy. 17 days in Europe, three hotels and a cruise. She did it all and everything was perfect. As I learned a long time ago 'Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance'. Geraldine really shined with travel arrangements. All the pickups at airports, hotels, etc were on time and great rides.

Having Geraldine plan my family trip was great. She was available and kept in touch though out the planning process. She responded to my emails in a timely manner and answered our questions. She also made good suggestions when we were hesitant about something. The trip ended up being a great experience. My family and I are grateful for Geraldine's assistance and we will definitely ask her to plan our next trip. Thanks Géraldine!

Awesome Honeymoon

By: Robert

Reviewed on: 05 Aug 2017

Working with Geraldine was great! Since this was my honeymoon, I thought it would be a good idea to use a travel agent to help with the logistics of the trip and help take some of the planning off our plate. She was able to get us flights were the airlines checked trough our luggage to our final destination (which is extremely helpful when traveling overseas and when you have connecting flights). Geraldine suggested and provided us with a number of good choices for places to stay that were close to sites that we could visit. She also suggested two tours that we went on which were very fun; a Swiss cultural tour and a Maltese cave tour. If/when I plan anymore extensive European trips, I will definitely be calling Geraldine! Thank you for making our honeymoon as stress free as possible Geraldine!

My partner and I booked our Philippines vacation through Geraldine and we were so happy with the experience. I had never worked with a travel advisor before and had my hesitations. Geraldine quickly eliminated any hesitations I had. Her communication was frequent during the planning process and she really understood exactly the type of experience we were looking for. She was able to get us into resorts that had no vacancy and booked all of our flights, ferry and transfers. Her thorough research, planning and professionalism really made this experience amazing. Thanks so much, Geraldine!

She did a great job on a relatively simple vacation. Got us a great rate with bonus perks on site at Sandals. Good job on airfare with American, not my preferred carrier. She is very easy to work with even when you plan 6 months ahead and sometimes forget some details. She has it all covered.

Working with Geraldine was a dream. Her insight and knowledge were indispensable. I emailed her a few times with questions during our trip, and she responded quickly. The tours, drivers, hotel accommodations that she arranged were top notch and went off without a hitch. My experience with Geraldine has left me with a firm conviction. I won't plan another trip without her help.

Another awesome trip!

Unlike previous trips, we used Rail travel extensively this time. What a great way to see Europe! Geraldine took care of all our arrangements after getting our input. The hotel accommodations she found for us in Paris, Amsterdam and Hamburg were eclectic but all very satisfying, each having different benefits. Always willing to provide support during the trip, she also arranged for a last-minute airport transfer after we decided against using the Metro with some unwieldy baggage. We've been working with Geraldine for years and will continue to do so. I also recommend to any friends interested in taking advantage of a travel agent to help plan their vacation.

Great trip out west

By: Bobo

Reviewed on: 13 Oct 2018

This is probably the 6 or 7th trip with Gelardine. Another super job. She got us the rooms we desired in Vegas, St George, Utah, Palm Springs and Santa Monica. Her big hit was suggesting Sixt for our car rental. The car type we desired was not available and they upgraded us to a great Volvo V60 at no extra charge. Perfect for our 1100 miles of driving. Sixt will be my preferred rental from now on. She also got us some nice Virtuoso upgrades. Gelardine will continue as our trip planning expert.
