I greatly enjoyed my trip experiences [with Virginia] which were customized for our group's interests and needs. Virginia planned everything carefully so that literally all we needed was our passports. I have participated in two river cruises, one on the Seine and the other on the Danube. Both were extremely pleasurable. I have traveled to Europe many times in the past, but as I have aged (gracefully I hope!) and with the current uncertain climate in the world today, to say nothing about the fact that air travel is no longer fun, it is reassuring to have someone else "sweat the details". I am glad that Virginia enjoys doing just that.

We first used Virginia by taking a Mediterranean cruise she arranged sponsored by the Ulster County Chamber of Commerce [as a group tour.] It was wonderful, and we were glad to have had Virginia’s expertise and guidance. We have since then had Virginia assist us as we created additional vacations. Now that we are well into travel by cruising ,we often start the process and then turn to Virginia for her professional guidance. [She creates] memorable trips.

We were thrilled to be part Virginia’s spectacular group river cruise on the Danube! It was our first trip to Europe, and the cruise through Hungary, Austria and Germany exceeded our expectations in every respect. [Virginia’s services were] Incredible…fabulous! We highly recommend Virginia! Her fantastic customer service and attention to detail assure a memorable travel experience! Plus she is a lot of fun!

[We use Virginia’s services because] we do not want to make any of the arrangements ourselves and she always seems to know how to make us happy. We have never tried to make our arrangements ourselves. We just completed our third European trip and will continue to use her services….SIMPLY MARVELOUS. We have already recommended her to other people and will continue to do so in the future.

We live in Tennessee and were referred to Virginia by one of her Tennessee colleagues who knew she had expansive experiences in travels to Italy. Her recommendations were excellent. We had only planned 1 of our 3 weeks-- a Seabourne cruise from Venice to Athens. We asked Virginia to fill in the rest of the trip, focusing on Florence and Tuscany. Virginia found us a fabulous villa in Tuscany and booked wonderful (unique and "behind the scenes") tours in Florence. Virginia thinks of everything. She planned our hotels and tours around where we would be when. She places herself "in the moment" and lets you know where you need to be to catch which train and how many blocks you have to schlep your luggage. She anticipates all your needs and nuisances-- and solves them before they happen!
I have recommended Virginia and I will use her again!! She is so easy to work with; she adheres to your budget; she knows all the "hidden" costs; she lets you know when you can save money or when you need to spend the extra dollars for service; her bookings/ reservations are always complete, and there are few surprises ! Once while I was in Rome I texted her for the protocol on tipping and I got an immediate reply. Love Virginia! Can't wait for our next trip.
