Everything went very smooth. The drivers that did our hotel and airport transfers wer first rate, the tour guides very very professional and we had very informative and enjoyable tours, The hotel selections were very nice and hope to return to the hotel in Paris the next time we go.
Excellent service and knowledgable staff

Shawn and his staff planned an excellent river boat cruise for us. The ship that they recommended, the timing of the cruise, and the arrangement of air transportation were all arranged with us in mind. When the airline neglected to inform EnRoute nor us of a significant time change of their flight, Shane was able to more than adequately arrange for "replacement air." We have another cruise booked with EnRoute and are looking forward to it and continued use of EnRoute services
Shane is terrific

We have worked with Shane for over three years and we take two or three major trips a year. I can truly say we go on every trip with PEACE OF MIND and that we know all details are taken care of, our wishes for the trip are always provided for. Shane is the most knowledgeable agent we have worked with and fun to. We would never consider working with anyone else!!!!!

We have taken many trips through arrangements by Shane and they always work out great. On our last trip he arranged our flight reservations to the Dominican Republic and everything went smooth without a hitch. We are about to plan a major family vacation and Shane will set it up for us.

I cannot say enough good things about Shane and the incredible job he did organizing our trip. Everything was absolutely perfect. I have traveled extensively over the past 45 years and I can honestly say this was one of my very best trips ever. I will definitely be using him for all my future travels and have already recommended him to my friends.
Outstanding service and recommendations!

We have received outstanding service from Shane Paquette for group tours, cruises and individual international travel for many years. Shane's recommendations have been excellent 100% of the time. We have also appreciated the Virtuoso upgrades that he has extended to us. Never have we been more appreciative than this past September when we could have been stranded in Eastern Europe as a result of the Air France strike. After Air France canceled numerous flights, Shane and his team immediately re-ticketed us on other carriers so that we could proceed with our planned itinerary. We look forward to continuing to benefit from Shane's vast knowledge and superior service for all future travel!

Shane didn't forget a thing. We were checked in before we had to think about it and didn't have to worry about anything. Our hotel rooms were exactly what we asked for and transportation was arranged and perfectly timed. He is amazing at all European destinations and keeps in contact with you any time day or night. He and his staff are very detail oriented and could help with any questions or concerns. We can't wait to have Shane plan another great vacation for our family. He works to please.

Tours, free and paid for were all good. Service was good. Cabin service was exceptional. Food was lackluster and sometimes unedible. French restaurant was the excleption, tasty and good presentation. Heard so much about above average Regent Line but found it no better than any line I've been on and I' be cruised on many different lines. Saw no sign of Virtuoso, was I supposed to?
Great attention to detail.

The trip went well
Reviewed on: 11 Oct 2016
The trip was exciting and Swain did a great job arranging tours and transportation. The biggest problem was with my passport. I was not aware that my passport had to have 6 months or more to go to be valid. Mine had 4 months. After much discussion and special security screening I made it to Singapore. I went to the American embassy my first morning to apply for an extended passport.By the second day I got the extended passport and then I went to the Indonesian embassy for a visa to Bali. By 3p.m my last day in Singapore (I was picked up to go to the airport to leave for Bali the next morning at 7 a.m.) , I got my Visa. I got hassled by immigration at every country, but I made it through . I could give you more details, but that's the gist of it. I've already filed for a new passport. Vance

Shane once again did a stellar job booking our stay. This was a complicated itinerary since we had 5 different couples involved. To add to the complications, this was a last-minute booking.

Yet another memorable trip arranged by Shane. The key was getting the half-board package at the One and Only. The Maldives can be notoriously expensive but this helped keep the cost of the trip from getting out of control. We also had a complicated flight itinerary and his agency sent us a folder before our trip that had all our flights and confirmation numbers in it.

She is easy to work with when he's around. He had a colleague do much of the work because he was out of town when we were doing our planning for this trip. We loved his recommendation of staying at the Rosewood hotel. Our only problem was that whoever ordered our airline ticket put down my last name as Kirwan Hanna, not Hanna. I didn't notice until we were trying to get our miles and my last name did not match the last name United has for me. I had to make a call to United when I returned home to get the miles credited to my account.
