“Michele was amazing to work with. She found us a beautiful hotel in our price range that we just loved. She was able to get us upgraded to a room with a spectacular view of the Matterhorn. We had train tickets from the airport to Zermatt, everything was organized and easy. She even gave us amazing restaurant and ski guide information. We loved it and can't wait to use Michele again, we have actually already started planning the next trip!”
“It was a pleasure to work with Michele. She was helpful, responsive, and thorough. She explored the possible options, and was able to arrange a wonderful vacation despite the fact that we started the process in the fall and wanted to plan a Christmas vacation in a warm climate for a family group of 22 -- not an easy task on relatively short notice! She worked diligently to ensure that we would be able to get the rooms we wanted in the location we desired. She examined air travel and trip insurance and made arrangements for ground transfers. She didn't leave anything to chance!”
“Working with Michele was great. She was unbelievably responsive to us, and very patient even as we asked her to perform miracles (building a whole trip from scratch 6 weeks in advance). She did a great job, did a huge amount of legwork, comparing various options, negotiating great rates for us, and set us up on a wonderful tour of Costa Rica even though we went into the process knowing next to nothing about the country.”
“Michele is fantastic. Michele asked many questions about me and my families likes and dislikes, so she could make the best suggestions for our family. I called her several times to plan the trip. She was always responsive, had lots of great ideas for restaurants, activities and hotels and we had a wonderful trip. I look forward to using Michele for our next vacation.”
“Michele was amazing to work with! She took so much care in making sure that everything with our trip was perfect! Her energy, enthusiasm and professionalism are top notch! She is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I’m excited to work with her again and highly recommend her! Her attention to detail is superb. Everything exceeded expectations.”
“We usually do not employ a travel consultant but this time, we were so busy and pressed for time, we decided to try. We got amazing Michele who worked on our request into the evenings, even nights and weekends. She managed to secure impossible (sold out 6 months in advance) rooms. Once we got to the resort (Enchantment, Sedona), we got a free upgrade and free breakfast ($120 value) for 4 people. Another surprise was a silver platter with sweet-smelling jumbo strawberries and fruit. Not only did she send me a list of tours in advance, she helped me pick out the ones that answer my particular preferences (saved me tons of time) and then booked them for us. When the tour canceled because of the weather, she immediately got us 2 other companies that were open. When we were about to get snowed in in Grand Canyon, she secured another night in a different hotel for us at moment’s notice in wee hours of the morning. Did I mention she is extremely intelligent, funny and resourceful? Can’t wait for our next trip with her!”
“At the very Last minute towards the end of July 2019 our “finicky” family of five decided to travel to the Canadian Rockies.
Within a matter of literally 36 hours Michele seamlessly planned a trip for us that was remarkable. From smoothly flying into Calgary and staying two nights at a perfectly situated hotel, to getting us into another perfect hotel for two nights overlooking Lake Louise with hiking and biking and lastly two more nights In Banff with white water rafting and more hiking Michele accomplished a miracle! Everyone was happy!
Everything about our trip was top notch! The trip was flawless and without one single hiccup!
There was even complimentary fruit, cheese and wine waiting for us in our hotel rooms!!
I never thought that we would be able to take a trip so “last minute” during tourist season at such a popular location. We could never have accomplished it without Michele’s impeccable help.”
No matter the disruption, my primary focus remains the same – keeping your interests at the forefront of everything I do.
