Well Done

Richard organizes 90 % of my trips...well organized and never steered wrong. D

Superb handling of every detail

By: Paul

Reviewed on: 30 Jun 2015

Richard handled the hotel reservations for 18 different individuals ranging from 82 years old to 8 months. Every detail was carefully arranged in advance with a minimum of fuss. He arranged a dinner for 50 - a number that increased several times as the date approached - with every aspect working perfectly. The menu selection, the quality of the food and the service were flawless. When we needed a photographer in a small town in France with just tw days advance warning, he made it happen seamlessly. Truly an outstanding travel professional.

Tahiti paradise

By: Paul

Reviewed on: 18 Oct 2015

Richard helped me arrange a surprise vacation to Tahiti. Everything worked perfectly, the hotels, the transfers, the flights to Bora Bora, Moorea, the ferries, the restaurants. As usual, he had all the details worked out and arranged. Excellent service. I would never do a trip like that without his help.

Richard was very attentive and promptly responded to all requests. He followed up on our requests for special airline meals and made sure all hotels provided refrigerators to store medication and knew that my husband needed his medicine freezer pack needed to be stored in Hotel freezer

I'd recommend Rich very highly. This is the third time that Rich helped us with our travel plans. Each time our trip went flawlessly. Rich was friendly, efficient, and found us economical alternatives.

Richard is spectacular. He anticipates our every need and is always one step ahead. He optimizes every booking for cost effectiveness and convenience. His fee is definitely good value particularly when something goes wrong. He is always available to find suitable alternatives. I am a AMEX platinum card holder, I have consistently found his service and responsiveness superior to theirs.

Richard assisted us with planning a family vacation (6 of us) to Universal Studios Orlando over Christmas. He was easy to work with as we compared various flights, local hotels, and ticket package options. We just returned and overall the vacation was great! I'd definitely recommend Richard & look forward to working with him on our next trip.
