Sugar Beach in St Lucia was awesome.  The island has so much to offer and the accommodations were lovely.  Staff was amazingly helpful.

Polly does a good job.

The Istanbul to Dubai cruise on Regent was great! Upgraded room was perfect location on the ship. Food fantastic as usual. Weather was great too. Petra, Luxor area, Oman and Dubai were favorites. Booked next Regent cruise while onboard (Tokyo to Singapore March 11 - April 16, 2015). Thanks for all of your help.

We returned recently from three weeks away, that can only be described as fantastic. Polly put it all together for us, including air travel and a cruise at great prices. The hotel choices in the UK were terrific, and the sightseeing tours in Scotland and York, were relaxing and informative. The Virtuoso extras were very nice too. Again, many thanks to Polly for he advice and efforts to organize a great vacation. We look forward to working with her again for our future travel plans.

The Best!

We did enjoy our entire trip! We ate foie gras almost every day in France. Returned with 2 cans of it and we have wonderful photos. Spent great times with family and friends. On the go all the time. The area we toured from the exceptional city of Bordeaux all the way down to Mezin then East to Blaziert, then south and East to St Nicholas du Grave Moissac and Auvillar, then a little south to Montauban where we went through the Musee d’Ingres and ate in the beautiful old city square,and then Toulouse walking along the Quai, then St Cirq de lapopie then Cregols, then Lyon. Came back wanting to plant Acanthus in our garden but alas I think I will have to special order it and keep it in a pot that comes in every Fall. Sicily was fabulous too. I mean Taormina. The food is exceptional and we walked at least two or three miles everyday up and down steep hills. A good place to relax. Swim in the Ionian Sea, eat Gelato and drink espresso, eat fresh figs and drink Sicilian wine.

Polly has made our travel arrangements for 3 very memorable and different trips: Italy Cruise, Paris and Antigua. She knows what we want, recommends the best options and finds a few money saving solutions along the way. She is very professional with a personal approach. Thanks to Polly we have had exceptional experiences and have returned with wonderful memories of some great places.

Great trip

Polly is just terrific. We had a difficult time with airline reservations, but Polly kept trying to get the best situation for us, with the best price. We came up with Lufthansa and we were most pleased with the airline. The hotel in Florence which Polly suggested was perfect, well located, nice room, great roof restaurant overlooking Florence at night. (The Grand Hotel Lucchesi.) The breakfast was great; the location of the hotel on the Arno nice. We had very hot weather and Florence was busy, but situations like that cannot be controlled.

Another great trip!

It is terrific to work with Polly. She is thorough, careful, and prompt. I wonder how she always keeps in good spirits and calm despite sometimes obvious changes which occur. Polly has always looked for the best airline prices for us which is certainly appreciated. Polly is A+.

Polly knew what we wanted and put it together very quickly. She was a great help and made it easy. We had a great time at Curtain Bluff, which she recommended a year ago. We want to go back again next year.
