Gracias, gracias, gracias!

Reviewed By Joey - Anaheim Hills, CA | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
We put everything into Janice's hands, which wasn't easy for me. It was so nice to have every detail taken care of, from the moment we got off the plane to the time we went home. She arranged day trips, gave us enough free time, recommendations for restaurants, and every aspect of the trip went off without a hitch. Her connections in Spain made it very easy for us to get the best out of our trip

My Favorite Trip

Reviewed By RCianfrani - North Tustin, CA | Traveled to Snake River ~ On the River ~ At Sea
Janice has been instrumental in helping me plan my travel. I have traveled all over the world, and her knowledge and experience has made for incredible trips. She customizes everything down to the last detail, taking into account all of our travelers needs and desires. She is the first person I go to when even considering if I should travel to a location. My elderly mother had just had surgery and we wanted a mom/daughter trip of a lifetime. Janice sat down with me and planned the most perfect small ship cruise in the Footsteps of Lewis and Clark. The trip was perfect for us, as we had personalized service, five star food and drink, and amazing offshore excursions. It really was one of my favorite trips with my mom.

Fantastic Weekend Getaway

Reviewed By Sonja - Laguna Niguel, Ca | Traveled to Palm Springs ~ California ~ USA
Janice was so helpful in creating a spectacular weekend for my small group. She provided some great options/ideas for my friends’ and my 50th birthday celebration getaway, and she arranged all of the details at the resort. We were treated to special perks/ extras (that we probably wouldn’t have received had we booked the getaway ourselves.)

The ultimate vacation

I took a tour of Cuba through Janice, and it truly was an amazing experience! I visited with artists, musicians, many Cuban people Janice has strong bonds with, and also saw the Rolling Stones play their epic concert in a Cuban park. She is constantly traveling and adding to her personal knowledge of the most fascinating places in the world, and she is eager for her clients to have the same experience! Janice is simply The Best!!!

Janice is the perfect travel agent for us. Her recommendations are always spot on, and she is very good at visualizing what we will like and then finding it for us. She has helped us with several trips and the results have been excellent and all we could ask for. She is very responsive and communicative. Always available when you need her. She has made every one of our trips better and the Virtuoso amenities have been the perfect added bonus. We will always have Janice help with our vacations.
