Thank you!Italy was amazing!!!!We loved everything - all the tour guides were fantastic, especially Alessandra in Rome. The transfer folks were also great. Very kind, punctual and informative. The hotel choices were also perfect (beautiful, perfect locations and great breakfasts with very friendly staff) and we enjoyed all the restaurant recommendations. Flawless! Magical! In Munich the bike tour was a fun way to see Munich highlights, and the tour to the castles was amazing - our tour guide though very, very knowledgeable. The Sofitel had yummy breakfasts, was conveniently positioned, had wonderful staff and also beautiful. Thank you again!!!!!
Lisa -We had a great time. Wow. Kids loved every part and the private tours made the trip. All of them were great and each had their own unique style. Each of the cities blew us away and we’re already starting to talk about a trip back to Italy. I have already mentioned your name to friends who are talking about a trip.Thanks again for everything. You set us up well with some great folks that took good care of us.All the best,
Hi Lisa,First thank you so much for organizing this trip. Michele and I appreciate all the hard work you put into it. The planning was obvious!Overall it was the trip of a lifetime. We loved everywhere we went but the highlights at least from my perspective were Murano, Portofino, Cinque Terre and Calcio Storico in Florence. Yes! We got back from the Chianti region just in time to witness this unbelievable sporting event. The Paris tour of Notre Dame cathedral was very special as we got access to areas I know very few go. The tour guides Fernanda, Sylvia, and Alessandra were all wonderful. The hotels were all fantastic but I think I would give the highest mark to The Belmond in Portofino as our view of the Mediterranean was fantastic. Michele and I would like to return there someday. Michele loved the spectacular suite at the Plaza Athenée - she almost started crying and thanks you for all the treats!! But best of all was Blake’s face when he saw the Dr. Who pieces you left for him at Plaza Athenée. You should have seen him. He says today that that was still his favorite part! Thank you so much for being so thoughtful!I need to go now but with the bottom of our hearts we thank you for this trip.Your friends forever,
Hi Lisa,Now that we are back home and settling in, we thought we would touch base with you about our trip.We had an absolutely wonderful time. Thank you for all of your help (and patience) in helping us plan our trip. We don’t think we could have done it without you.We thought we would give you a run down of some of our impressions about transportation, restaurants, guides, accommodations, etc. so you have a reference for the future. Apologies in advance if this is too long.Nash, the person who guided us through Heathrow to our connecting flight to Edinburgh, was a godsend. He took out all of the stress and guess work after a long overnight flight. Well worth the cost and highly recommended.Kevin, the person who transported us from the Edinburgh airport to the Balmoral and took us to Glenkinchie, was as sweet and nice as can be. Easy to talk to, informative, pleasant, etc. Also well worth the cost and highly recommended. Cameron, who guided us on the Stirling Castle/ Braveheart/Loch Lomond tour, was also nice and sweet. He was in full Scottish dress (kilt and all) and was very knowledgeable about the history of the area we traveled through. He also sang us a couple of songs!David, our Highlands tour guide for 2 days, was absolutely perfect for us. He was knowledgeable about the history, geography, geologic characteristics, etc. of the places we traveled through. He is also an outdoorsman (a hill walker, as they say in Scotland) and his perspective of the Highlands mountains was something unexpected for us and just added to our overall positive experience with him. The routes he took and recommendations he made were spot on. He was a nice guy and very easy to talk to. We can’t recommend him highly enough. All four accommodations were lovely and each very special. The Prestonfield House was a little over the top for us so we were glad we only had one night there. But, we were very happy and pleasantly surprised with the upgrade to a suite. We could not have been more pleased with your services and are happy to recommend you to our family and friends who are planning a trip to Europe.Thank you again for all of your help and patience. We look forward to working with you again!
Dearest Lisa,I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for all of your help and planning. We had such a wonderful time in Italy. 🇮🇹 Everything went off without a hitch. I will definitely recommend your services to all of my friends. You simply made this a special vacation and I am grateful for everything you did. Thanks again!😊
Lisa, We are back stateside, but would rather be in Italy!! Thanks to you, our trip was fantastic!! I am in awe about how well everything was coordinated and on time. You really are a professional and we are so fortunate to have “accidentally” found you. You know all the secret spots of Rome, Florence, and Venice, not to mention Paris as well. Dino was our driver in Rome and he was so pleasant and patient with our family. Irene was such a gem!! We begged to her come visit us in the US and praying she takes us up on the invitation. Our private Vatican tour was worth getting up bright and early for! As we explored Ancient Rome, Irene shared with us her vast knowledge of all things related to art, history, food, and shopping.The quiet, more intimate moments spent in the van with our young adult girls will always be something that I will treasure. We laughed and had lots of memories made due to your experienced team! Once we moved onto to Venice and met up with Ziggy and Sylvia, we knew we were in good hands once again!The private tour of Venice and the outer islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello via a beautiful water taxi were nothing short of amazing! It was refreshing to get out and see a different way of life on these smaller islands. Murano and the Venetian glass making were fascinating to witness.Sylvia was accommodating, punctual, and a delight to be with for two days in Venice. I have been daydreaming about the vacation and all the new discoveries I made while in Italy.Lisa, you are dedicated and determined to make sure your clients have a personalized trip no matter their wants, needs, and desires. From suggestions to the actual reservations, to the printing of train and museum tickets, all is handled well in advance. There is no struggling, no worries and if something should change, you are available and ready to help. Until our next trip, we will have just to draw on our precious memories and perfect vacation that you helped create.You are talented, brilliant, and unique in your services. Many thanks!
I have been truly blessed to be on both ends of a “YOUR WORLD EXPERIENCE” trip to Europe!!Experience # 1 My wife and I were guests of my CEO who had hired Lisa to arrange a week in Paris for 16 couples. As avid travelers , my wife and I were totally blown away by the remarkable attention to detail of every facet of the trip. From the driver at the train station (who knew our names), to the fine dining private experiences in the Louvre and Eiffel Tower, every part of every day was meticulously planned. I quickly realized that whether you wanted center court at Roland Garros, reservations at an exclusive restaurant, or just a scenic day on the Seine after a morning at Giverny, Lisa could make it happen!! We still don’t know when or how Lisa slept? She was available 24/7. This was an experience of a lifetime.Experience #2I hired Lisa to arrange a “guys only” 60th birthday celebration trip to Edinburgh, Scotland. I got to see first hand how hard Lisa worked behind the scenes in finding the best venues, at the best times, with the best service. The folks who drove us to and from the distilleries, the Highlands, and the golf course, were the kindest and nicest we had ever met. An exclusive dinner in the “Collection Room” at the Scotch Whiskey Experience” will be something no one in our group will ever forget. Accommodations for “the birthday bash” at the Prestonfield House were first class…including upgraded suites, personal wine selections, and a custom designed birthday cake shaped as a bottle of MacCallen 12!! Every detail was covered. Lisa went beyond creative when she actually had her husband join the “Scotch Whiskey Society” just so our group could visit, taste test cask only whiskey, and dine in their private members only facility. If you want it, Lisa can arrange it.Can’t wait to hire Lisa for our third “World Experience”
Hello Lisa,Happy 4th of July. I first want to apologize for my delay in closing with you. It has been hectic for me since I returned from my trip. I had an incredible time in Paris. Renting an apartment made all the difference in my getting a very different perspective of the French and its culture. I can’t begin to thank you enough for the recommendations and support you provided to me before and during my stay in Paris. I especially wish to thank you for connecting me to the apartment rental service—it was a great and experience-changing recommendation. I will always thank and remember you for doing this. I have already started to plan for my next stay in Paris. Staying in two apartments added to the overall experience for me. Both were excellent and of outstanding quality but in several respects were very, very, different. I would readily stay at either place and I hope one of them is open for my next stay. Having a chef cook us dinner was the highlight of my stay. My friends loved it and we still talk about it. Your add great value to a trailer like me in offering the opportunity to experience this type of event. Based on my life prior to my trip, the thought of engaging a chef would have never crossed my mind. In addition to the offering these unique experiences those whom you do business are nothing less but outstanding and professional. This same thanks can be applied to the tours/guides you offer. All my past guides were expert in their knowledge/subject and all exceptionally kind and professional. The Chenenceau tour was amazing. It was a place I have wanted to visit for several years. Helene was amazing and most patient with me in speaking and practicing my French. I told her that on my next trip to France I will definitely look into booking a full day tour. I have a great deal of knowledge about the personalities, events, and history of Chenenceau, yet Helene was able to add some new information and historical facts about the Chateau. In summary my trip was a 10 and your support was an 11—which made the great fun I had while on vacation possible. I look forward continuing working with you on my future travel plans.
Hello Lisa,Wow - we are happy to be home, but I just wanted to get back to you with a proper thank you for all the help you gave us to make it such a memorable trip!Venice was just wonderful, and I’m so happy you suggested an escort - it is so complicated a process, and we were pretty tired on the way in. Elisa (spelling?) was very helpful and the result so worth the cost. We actually found Acqua Pazza the first day for lunch, so we got to enjoy it twice. It was our favorite. The Guggenheim went just as you said it would, and Vino de Arturo was just amazing - with all the celebrity around it, it was so interesting, but the food had the starring role! As did the people of Venice - just lovely.Gritti Palace was also a great suggestion we enjoyed. We missed out on Harry’s, but Terry had been to the one in London. When we met Ziggy on the way to the airport in Venice - I was suitably impressed with all her expertise.Then, we come to our London experience! The car service airport trips were great - very professional! The Dean Street Townhouse treatment was superb (Sandra putting us in the perfect quieter back room so we could talk together easily and making sure we were safely tucked in taxis she had called). Everyone was happy, but I would say I adored my meal. Donna was a most amazing fountain of information at the Tower tour. She handled the day perfectly presenting us with a lot of information in the best and most interesting way. Getting to meet Simon at Nopi was such a treat. I loved that he dropped by to say hello. We also enjoyed Nopi’s food and atmosphere as well. The London Zoo as both even better than expected! Terry got plenty of information for his report to the Smithsonian Zoo, we got great behind the scenes watching a tiger feeding from 2 feet, actually feeding the Aardvarks, petting the Gallapagos tortoises, and we saw an original copy of Darwin’s Origin of the Species in the Zoological library! The Shangri-La was phenomenal in so many ways - I loved laying my head on the pillow at night and looking at the Eye. We also learned first hand about London fog.We walked and walked, explored and just had a generally unbelievable trip! I basically ate and drank my way through the two beautiful cities because my dietary restrictions of gluten and butter in the states don’t seem to apply across the pond. I was truly a happy girl even though I now need a sincere diet prior to Christmas parties.I got the credit with my husband and friends, but we know who really deserves it. I just can’t say enough good things and can’t say thank you enough to you. I made sure my mates knew how to reach you for future help, and am always willing to give you a recommendation any other way you can think about. Until our next trip, all our best to you!
Lisa, We had an AMAZING trip! Everything was absolutely incredible that you set up. Some notables: 1. We loved all the guides. It would be difficult to pick from best to least as they were all so good, and appropriate for their area.2. We were most appreciative that you had someone escort us through CDG on our flight out. That place is a total nightmare and there is no way we would have made our connecting flight without him.3. The water taxi in Venice was a great way to start the trip and we really appreciated Ziggy sticking around waiting for us for an hour as we tried to locate Steph’s luggage.4. All our hotels were phenomenal! We have already given your name out and will be posting some of our pictures on Facebook with a recommendation for you. We could not have done this trip without you and can’t thank you enough!
Lisa-Everything was awesome- and according to my daughter -“The best ever!”We were met by Grant and our guide, Nigel, at the hotel and proceeded according to plan to do all were scheduled to do on the itinerary. It was perfect! We met Paul the zoo handler who was so entertaining and engaging with the kids -I just was thinking, at the time, “yeah it doesn’t get any better than this.” Koalas, Kangaroos, platypus- a nine year old girls dream. She is still glowing several hours later. Then on to lunch and Manly Beach for a bike ride which was just as awesome as the zoo! Pam and I smiled the entire day.Australia is amazing! Thank you so much for arranging our wonderful day. We head home tomorrow and honestly don’t want to leave Sydney and Australia. It has been a wonderful holiday - truly wonderful. And, thank you for all you have done for us this season. We will definitely use your service in the future and spread the word of your spectacular service. After all we got in touch with you via a recommendation from a friend! We’ll talk soon!
Lisa,I wanted to follow-up and thank you deeply for guiding us through our vacation plans. The experience was beyond our expectations and (having just come back) we are still processing it all. There was so much happening every day - we took 7,000 photos! Every detail worked perfectly. We loved doing photos with Lindsey, staying at hotel Esprit St Germain, all the information you had compiled for us about the sites to see (and all the specialty knowledge within), the VIP vehicle service and drivers, Laurie was so nice as well! I also cannot say enough about the company you paired us with in Rome. They matched us with Catia and she was absolutely amazing at getting us to see the Vatican, Colosseum, and Roman Forums in a single day - she would use her charm everywhere we went (employees at sites) and got us in the front of any line anywhere (even security screening lines) and also added (on the fly) special access to parts of the Vatican such as the Cabinet of Masks. I don’t think I can thank you enough for customizing our plans - you made our vacation absolutely amazing! Shall I keep you updated on future travel plans when we are in the planning stages!
Lisa,We just wanted to thank you for your assistance in making our trip to Ireland and and the UK care and stress-free. We absolutely had such a wonderful trip abroad and cannot wait to return next year (hopefully Paris and Italy). If we do, we will contact you again. Everything you did for us is truly appreciated and without your input and assistance, it wouldn’t have been as enjoyable. By the way, the driver in Wales (Noah) was beyond superb...we thoroughly enjoyed his company, his knowledge and guidance. Thank you again, we feel so fortunate to have connected with you and only wish we could’ve met you in person. All I can say is we did NOT want to come home so that’s a pretty good indication that we WILL be back!!Have a wonderful week and take good care.
Hi LisaNow that I am settling back to our life, just wanted to say that this was a trip of a lifetime for our family. We loved Italy and can’t wait to go back. Kids want to do more adventure stuff and my wife/I wanted to spend more time in Florence. All the side trips to Pompeii, Amalfi coast, Pisa, Lucca, Sienna, San Gimignano, Dolomites - were wonderful.Thanks for such a well planned itinerary - we had plenty time to relax and enjoy everything!
Fellow lovers of Paris:To make your experience truly unique and enjoyable please contact Lisa. She’s the one to provide you with the best trip you could ever imagine and it’s tailored to what you want to see and do. She’s been my trusted guide for my last 2 visits. I’ve been to Paris many times but when Lisa helped me I was able to see things that I wouldn’t have known about on my own. She’s very professional and there to help if you need her. I wouldn’t go back without contacting her.
Dear prospective client,I contacted Lisa to help me organize a trip for my family of five plus my in laws… so 7 people, 3 generations, lots of opinions!At first I signed up only for the single phone call, I questioned how much value someone who didn’t know us could add. We were not on the phone for long when I realized Lisa’s help would be invaluable. She organized our wish list into a wonderful and sensible itinerary and gave us many additional wonderful ideas. A few days after our call I received our comprehensive itinerary. I was amazed by the detail!Lisa not only helped us to plan our itinerary, she booked all of our restaurants, she obtained the tickets to attractions we wanted in advance and she organized the most amazing day trip to Normandy. Once we arrived, used our plan, ate in the restaurants and met our Normandy guide we were all amazed at how spot-on her recommendations were.Vacation stress can come from difficulty navigating, trouble choosing and pleasing everyone. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone planning a trip to Paris. You get Lisa’s intimate knowledge of Paris, but you also get access to her curated and wonderful network. She will keep you on track (your itinerary contains details about how to get from A to B), you will always know where you are and what things are around you even if not on your itinerary.Lisa’s service is a wonderful value, we are so glad we made this choice!
Hi Lisa, The trip to Paris was absolutely fantastic! I cannot thank you enough for helping us plan everything along the way. You will definitely be recommended to everyone should they be vacationing in France! It was a pleasure to work with you! Thank you!
Dear Lisa, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again! Having heard snippets about your work over the past couple of years, I just knew we had to call upon your wonderful insight and passion for Paris to help us plan our weekend break. Your recommendations and detailed itinerary were invaluable and ensured we could make the most of our trip – incorporating both the key tourist sites along with some lovely streets, parks and shops that we would definitely have missed without your help! We had an amazing time and are already planning a springtime trip in the near future – we have certainly fallen in love with this wonderful city! Thank you so much again.
Hi Lisa, The four of us had a fabulous time in The City of Light! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I believe we are still all on our Paris high, even after a week of being home! The apt was lovely and spacious... a great location and terrific view! Our days were hectic and busy but we saw everything we planned on seeing. Restaurants were all unique and different, and food and wine choices were many. Flora was an excellent guide at Versailles, it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. And the SHOPPING……….. fantastique!!!!! We all so appreciated your guidance, suggestions, and MAPS!!!! Your professional services gave us the opportunity to see Paris with ease and with an abundance of information which certainly added to our overall enjoyment and fun. We are all thinking about our next trip together in 2016……….. A return to Paris is on our list of possibilities. We will certainly keep you in mind should we decide to return! Merci again for your help. Will check you out on Facebook!! It was a pleasure to get to know you!
Dear Lisa, Just a word of thanks for all you did to make our week in Paris so lovely! Dinner last night at Goust was heavenly and the champagne you arranged for us to sip before dinner was delicious. What a nice gesture and we so appreciated it! Our Privileged Opéra Garnier tour with Sophie was unbelievable! We loved every minute and it was so special to be able to learn about the Palais Garnier with her. Really an amazing experience! Thank you very much again. We will definitely return and will also pass your name along to any of our friends who are planning a trip to Paris. Kindest regards,
Hi Lisa, I’m at the Lyon airport about to leave for Amsterdam, and wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your help with Paris. We enjoyed each day we had there, including the private tours of the Louvre, Giverny and Versailles. The 4 hour driving “tour” was also perfect for us, as was lunch at 39V Restaurant. It could not have gone smoother and I’m so very pleased at how it all turned out. My mother was so happy, which is all that I really wanted to achieve. Thanks again, Lisa. Your support and help was invaluable, and I truly and deeply appreciate all that you have done! Best regards,
