Ewa has extensive knowledge of travel and of the destinations. More importantly, she knows how to get the best means of transportation. She always returns my calls in the shortest possible time. I would strongly recommend her to my friends.

Ewa is always most helpful to make travel arrangements that meet with the requirements that I had requested. Often times, this needs her to do extra research and time, which is much appreciated.

Ewa is always very responsive and provides excellent suggestions. She is always willing to provide details on multiple options for departure/arrival dates. Her attention to detail always puts my mind at ease. We've used Ewa on a few occasions now and couldn't be happier. We look forward to using her in the future.

Amazing 4 Night Getaway at Pelican Hill!

By: sillygirl_l


Reviewed on: 02 Mar 2014

We were looking for a recommendation that was somewhat local (for Los Angeles) for my birthday weekend.  Ewa recommended a few options and we settled on Pelican Hill resort in Newport Beach, CA.  Ewa, as always, setup everything so that we didn't have to lift a finger!  We were upgraded to a beautiful 3 bedroom villa overlooking the ocean which was AMAZING.  The level of service at Pelican Hill, from the food to the spa, completely exceeded all of our expectations.  We cannot wait to return to Pelican Hill in the future.  We had the most amazing 4 night getaway and we owe it all to our amazing Virtuoso agent.

Ewa so competently handled our booking on the Nieuw Amsterdam.  We had an upgrade to a suite, the perfect location of which was picked by Ewa.  This ship was absolutely wonderful as far as the staff (impeccable), the service, the food, the entertainment, the ship (beautiful) and the itinerary. Ewa always handles our air reservations perfectly as well as booking our one night stay at the Hyatt Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale.  We could not be more pleased with Paul Klein Travel over all the years we have used them and we are particularly thrilled with all the wonderful service we have had with Ewa over the year.

We have been with Ewa for many, many years now and every trip we have taken has been perfect.  All the hotels that have been recommended to us have been amazing and the service we get being associated with Virtuoso have been wonderful.  Ewa is always available for conversations and recommendations.  Everything is done immediately.  I don't know what we would do without her. We are thankful for all the services that Virtuoso gives us.

Loved Sedona and the Enchantment Resort!

By: Leslie


Reviewed on: 25 Aug 2014

We loved our stay at the Enchantment Resort and enjoyed all of the activities as well as the Jr. Suite we were booked in. The only downside was the view from our balcony, as it was of a large parking lot (apparently that is the view of all Jr. Suites). Good to know for our next booking! We are looking forward to our return trip which we are planning with Ewa now! Overall it was a relaxing, adventurous trip and we couldn't be happier with the advice to stay at Enchantment and the level of service.

Ewa is always extremely helpful in planning trips. We were originally looking at another cruise but she guided us to this instead. The ship was fantastic, the room was perfect for our family and we loved every bit of the itinerary. She really helps to take the guesswork out of the equation when planning for these trips. She is always very responsive to emails and helps to make it a stress free experience. I highly recommend Ewa and the Baltic itinerary we were on!

Ewa, once again, left nothing to chance in accommodating our reservations requests for a three city tour. From the complexity of booking numerous legs of not uncomplicated air travel to briefing five star hotels of our room preferences, restaurants and tickets requests, she provides service that is both pleasant, personal and superbly executed. We travel with confidence and reassurance thanks to Ewa and Paul Klein Travel.

Easy Weekend!

By: LAK1976


Reviewed on: 22 Sep 2015

Ewa planned an easy getaway for us at our favorite spot in Sedona. Since she knows our preferences, planning and check in was a breeze. We ended up being upgraded to a room we didn't like our first stay (overlooked a parking lot) and they made note of this after talking to Ewa and made sure we did not end up in the same room. Our room this time was nice and we look forward to using Ewa to book our next trip to Sedona and trying a new room location on the property. We had originally thought that we wanted to see the grand canyon, but we have moved twice in the last three months, so we decided to forgo any plans and just relax. It was exactly what we needed. I really appreciate Ewa's help in trying to plan something exciting for the grand canyon, and we will use her when we are ready to venture that way on our next trip. Overall our vacation was fantastic and we loved every minute of it. Thanks Ewa!

Eva was great as always. Princess, however, was a disappointment. Due to very poor communication from Princess by the time we got back to the airport to make our pre-paid transfer to the pier in Houston, all the Princess reps had left. Even though I called Princess all they did was put me on hold. We had to make our way ourselves and fortunately found a coach driver who agreed to make arrangements to take us to the pier. The food on Princess was over-salted and not as tasty as usual. The entertainment, with the exception of "Bravo" which was absolutely outstanding, was incredibly mediocre. This time Princess did not measure up to our other Princess cruises.
