Jessica, David, and the Ourisman Team are brilliant and extremely service oriented advisors that unfailingly provide an unparalelled level of service, satisfaction, and enjoyment. We have had over several years now numerous truly memorable stays and experiences due to their dedication and hard work. We often say when checking in - the Ourisman magic!

I rely on Ourisman Travel for so many of my luxury travel needs, and they never disappoint! This particular trip was for my honeymoon, and it was an incredible vacation -- thanks so much to the Ourisman Travel team for helping to arrange and for also the super warm welcome when we arrived at our bungalow in paradise. :)

I used the virtuoso instant direct booking feature and indicated Ourisman as my agent. They immediately followed up asking thoughtful questions about the purpose of the trip,any celebrations and also birthdays of my family members. Hotel treated us very nicely. I especially appreciate the instant booking feature of virtuoso though recently it doesn't seem to be there anymore.

The team at Ourisman Travel helped me book two reservations for my father in law's 80th birthday. They reached out to the hotels before hand to ensure everything was set up to my satisfaction and reached out to me a few days before ensure that all my needs were captured. When booking with team Ourisman I'm confident that things will be taken care of and this gives me great peace of mind.

Great Travel Advisor

Jessica and her team were fantastic to work with both during the initial planning, lead up time and during our trip. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable and caring; this group us with everything and more than we expected and their little ‘surprises’ before, during and after our trip just made the experience all the more special. They offered advice when requested, followed up to get queries answered and conducted a pre-trip conference call as well as post-trip review conference. Her relationships with hotel providers provided us upgrades, special attention and care throughout our trip which contributed to our trip of a lifetime. Not only would I highly recommend Jessica and her team but we booked another stay using her advisors since we were so impressed with them and the care they provide clients. If you are looking for personal professional assistance and attention to detail, this is your travel advisor.

I absolutely love booking with Ourisman Travel. Not only do they have an extensive knowledge of the industry, but the amenities that come with their bookings (which range from spa credits, upgrades, and welcome packages) are top-of-the-line. There’s something to be said for arriving on vacation in a new place and feeling welcomed by a staff that’s been prepped on all your requests, needs, and the details of your stay. It also goes without saying that their hotels are always beautiful, their tips are truly insightful, and the boutique agency is full of impassioned individuals who can empathize with your every need. Whether I’m traveling for work or pleasure, I love knowing that my check-in and stay will be seamless and go smoothly thanks to having an Ourisman Travel rep behind it. They’re without a doubt the smartest agency around and totally attuned to the needs of the luxury traveler. Thank you to the whole team!

Booking through Ourisman Travel is always a seamless and enjoyable experience. Angela, who assists with hotel-only bookings, is a pleasure to work with and always addresses questions and concerns promptly and has excellent knowledge of the various properties being discussed. Although I also have access to American Express Platinum's Fine Hotels and Resorts program, I prefer booking through Ourisman Travel for most stays at Four Seasons properties due to their Preferred Partner status, as well as for any trip involving a special occasion as I know they will effectively communicate with the hotel on my behalf.

Working with Ourisman Travel was incredibly easy. All that I needed through them was a booking at a hotel and that was done quickly and easily. While I appreciate not being upsold with tours and other add-ons, others may prefer to have all the extra options laid out to them even if they already know exactly what they are looking for. Overall it was a great experience.

When our hotel that we had booked through Ourisman 7 months in advance with a full deposit cancelled on us due to overbooking 2 weeks from our trip date Ourisman Agency could not have done poorer job responding. They showed no empathy and demonstrated a completely nonchalant attitude that “this happens all the time.” When I addressed this with the owner they only dug in further and refused to contact the hotel on our behalf. Beware.

I’ve just completed 3 recent stays over the past few weeks all booked with the assistance of Ourisman Travel. It continues to be a pleasure to work with everyone at the firm. Angela, Rebecca, and Samantha, who typically handle hotel bookings, are miracle workers and their established relationships with individual hotels and companies is evident with all special requests always being communicated to the properties ahead of arrival, and I can’t help but feel truly spoiled by the frequent upgrades extended by the hotels. Although I have other channels available for luxury bookings such American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts, I routinely return to Team Ourisman for my travel needs and look forward to working with them again on next year’s trips. Five star service all around!

I've had poor experiences with travel agents in the past, and I usually book hotels through Amex Fine Hotels and Resorts. For this trip, Amex did not have the Four Seasons 5th night free, so I booked direct. I then transferred the booking to Ourisman Travel to have the backing of someone if things went wrong. Luckily, they didn't! Our Four Seasons Lana'i room was upgraded to a much higher level, and I believe this was partly due to the previous business that Ourisman has done with the Four Seasons. I will likely book many future trips with Ourisman
