Due to my years of expertise,I  have been participating on  the Virtuoso Preview Advisory board for hotels.

My husband and I have booked many vacations over the years and have never been disappointed. Natalie's suggestions on hotels and tours have been perfect, and we would never use another travel agency other than Bayside Travel

Wonderful experience in Mayakoba, Mexico!

Natalie was a pleasure to work with, and was super helpful and informative about restaurants and activities for our vacation. She helped us get amenities that we could not get on our own and that greatly enhanced our trip and experience. Will definitely work with Natalie on all planned trips in the future!

Couldn't have asked for a better person to plan our trip. We had a wonderful time. Everything worked out flawlessly. Cruise and Paris accommodations were both fabulous. Flights and train arrangements worked out just fine. Natalie took care of every detail. Thanks so much!

Another great trip

Natalie planned us another great trip out to Paws Up in Montana. We'd been looking for a fun outdoor adventure, but we were traveling with 8 children, some very small, so we needed something that was super fun but also structured for kids. Natalie found the perfect fit for us. Everyone in our party had a wonderful time. And all the details were prepared perfectly by Natalie.

Natalie did an excellent job of planning and coordinating all aspects of the trip. Flying from JFK to Naples nonstop was a blessing and the cars were waiting at the airport. Hotels were excellent. Due to heavy rain and road flooding, we were forced to stay in Calitri instead of going to Candela because the highway was flooded.

Natalie was excellent. She handled all the details of the trip including the air and optional tours. Natalie is a true professional and I recommend her highly.

Excellent Virtuoso Agent

By: Suze

Reviewed on: 24 May 2017

We've been working with Natalie for several years on the recommendation of a friend. She has been thorough, responsive to our needs and patient. When a cruise was cancelled because the cruise line ran our ship aground (!) and this was not covered by insurance, she never stopped calling and emailing them until we had a full refund. This is why you use an agent. She is our advocate at all times and gets us the best rooms and upgrades.

Although she didn’t plan the tour we took through Chile and the Fjiords, she was most helpful with the small after tour and gave excellent advice. Her sugggestion to spend no more than 2 nights in Buenos Aires was exactly correct.

Girls' Trip to Europe

By: Deanna

Reviewed on: 15 Aug 2019

Working with Natalie to plan this trip was amazing from start to finish. She managed to get us an itinerary that stayed in our budget, booking hotels that far exceeded our expectations. Anytime I reached out and asked Natalie to add something else to the trip, she was more than happy. Everything went along smoothly without a glitch. When our flight was delayed from Greece to Barcelona and we were stranded in the airport, Natalie made sure we were on the next flight out as soon as possible. She also made sure that we had the new transfer contact info since we'd be arriving well after midnight. Her first priority was making sure we were safe and prepared. Her attention to detail was so appreciated. I look forward to using her for any future adventures!

Natalie is a quintessential travel professional with excellent suggestions for hotels, transportation, activities, local guides, and restaurants. She has excellent attention to detail, and just created a three-city itinerary for us in Italy with seamless transfers between Milan, Florence and Lake Como. Natalie is an excellent listener who tailors every itinerary according to my family's interests. Last year, Natalie rescheduled complicated travel plans with a full refund when illness resulted in my husband having to cancel a trip to Italy. This year, Natalie moved us to a new hotel only ten days before travel when the original hotel received negative online reviews. In addition, she managed this without complaint and without a cancellation penalty for us. Working with Natalie is creative, fun and stress-free.

We are very happy with all of her help!
