Why Work with a Travel Advisor

You could book travel yourself – but why would you want to?  In today’s world, time is a precious commodity that once gone, we cannot get back.  By working in collaboration with our clients, we curate a journey for our clients so that their precious time is wisely spent on the more important things in life: enjoying the experience and peace of mind.

We Take it from Ordinary to Extraordinary.

As a Virtuoso travel advisor, we can secure special benefits that you can’t get on your own, such as complimentary breakfast, food and beverage or spa credits, and upgrades at hotels.  But we also see the nuances in every trip.  From big-picture aspects (where to go – and when) to the little details that matter - booking the hotel rooms with the best views or where to get the most authentic pizza on the Amalfi Coast.  We know how to plan a memorable trip.


We Know the World.

Just as you might use a financial planner, an interior designer, or personal trainer, it makes sense to entrust your most valuable asset - your time - to an experienced travel advisor.  We also personally travel to numerous destinations to gain "on the ground" expertise and strengthen the vendor relationships, so our clients are truly treated as VIPs when they arrive.

We Learn Your Travel Style.

We collaborate to discover what’s most important to you.  You may want to take a cooking class or a private tour, or you may not want to leave the resort pool!  Perhaps you want to use travel to educate your kids, plan an unforgettable anniversary trip, or celebrate a milestone birthday with friends and family.  Whatever you are dreaming about, we can plan it.


We Expand your Horizons.

We will help you think creatively about where to go and what to do.  Italy, France, and Hawaii will always be popular.  But we also know the best ways to see Chile, Portugal, New Zealand, as well as the latest hot destinations as well as new ways to experience the places you’ve already visited.  We use our creativity to spark the imagination, which allows us to orchestrate an extraordinary journey for our clients.

We can Handle Anything.

Have you ever been on a trip where everything went exactly as planned?  No, right – this almost never happens.  Issues are bound to pop up, and we are your personal help line and “fixer” who knows how to quickly turn things around for the better, allowing you to move onto the next adventure on your journey.
