Great Trips from a Great Agent

Reviewed By E and R - East Meadow, NY | Traveled to South America
We have worked with Richard Myers on several occasions, including two trips in the past year. When we express an idea to him, he immediately gets "on the case", providing us with different approaches and options for travel. His first hand knowledge of many destinations, as well as his ability to dive in and find out anything we ask him about, shows his obvious love of what he is doing. We travelled to South America last January/February with his guidance, and were wowed by his attention to every detail making it a fantastic trip. We are excited to be working with him on our trip to Iceland in July.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Richard Myers responded:
Ellen and Rob, that was an incredible note, so beautifully crafted and written, thoughtful, kind and sincere, For someone who has been everywhere, there is little that I can guide you or advise, yet you gave me an opportunity to perform and ... even booked another adventure - to Iceland! You'll probably be my first Elon Musk booking, no!!! Truly, thank you for your nice words and constant encouragement to do research and share stories and information with both of you!

Wonderful 50th Anniversary

The vacation left our family with many wonderful memories. We're grateful to Richard for his time, effort and outstanding work

That's What I Call Service!

Reviewed By Sarah M. - East Hampton, NY | Traveled to Turks and Caicos Islands ~ Caribbean
Richard was a true pleasure to work with. He helped our family expertly navigate the process of retaining the Global Entry (now Trusted Traveler) status - which was quite extensive - and helped us to locate a resort the hit the nail on the head of everything we were looking for. After the major devastation in the Caribbean with the hurricanes of 2017, Richard was in constant communication with us about the status of the island and our hotel, including connecting us with clients of his who traveled to the same resort before us, but still after the hurricane. The travel was simple and the accommodations and surroundings were terrific. One rule of thumb, best to not leave T&C's airpoirt on a Saturday afternoon - we barely made our flight as the lines were dreadfully long and slow moving. Richard's recommendations were superb and he was there anytime we needed him. Being in the service industry myself, I know great service when I see it. I undoubtably will recommend him from here on out.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Richard Myers responded:
It's always a challenge to represent the needs of a family with small children while traveling, especially when everyone has varied and different activities that require planning and extra care. Truly, you were fun and exciting to meet your standards of excellence combined with all the excitement you were determined to explore and enjoy. I'd jump through hula hoops for your family and look forward to my next assignment and the planning you'll request!
