Next to word-of-mouth referrals and testimonials from satisfied clients, the kind of compliment that means the most to me is one given by my peers. I have been fortunate enough to be recognized in this manner:

“Louisa did a great job for us. She took care of all details. And made wonderful recommendations for hotels, restaurants and touring. When our flight was cancelled coming home she stepped in immediately and got a good alternative lined up. Can’t say enough good things about her.”
~ A.C., Birmingham, Alabama
“This is my third trip with Louisa and she is consistently amazing! I recommend her to all my friends. She is thoughtful and detailed and responsive and I trust all of her recommendations.”
~ E.H., Boston, Massachusetts
“In the midst of wedding planning, Louisa made honeymoon planning a fun and stress-free process. She took care of all the details. We were able to customize the trip and she catered it to our specific budget and needs. It was wonderful! However, we did not truly recognize the value of her service until we were turned away from the ticket gate with my husband’s damaged passport. We were devastated that we had to leave the airport and could not board the plane for our honeymoon. Louisa saved the day! She took so much of the stress away from us. Despite it being a Sunday, she worked for hours to re-book everything. She was able to shift our resort reservations and worked with the airlines to find the best rates. We drove to the nearest Passport office and before we arrived, she had already taken care of every other detail. I cannot imagine what we would have done without her help. We will not be taking any trips without Louisa’s help!”

“I got a reference from a trusted friend that Louisa was a different type of travel planner. With about 2.5 million air miles under my belt and every airline/hotel sucking up to me along with an admin that took care of everything, times changed since retiring but my expectations haven’t . I have used numerous travel companies/agents/web sites to seek good deals with sacrificing service. DONE with that now. After spending an hour with Louisa on the phone, she had my profile (quirks) figured out. Suggestions based on our desires for the Christmas trip became fun to think about with no hassle. She came back with three or four destination options and we decided based on our wants and her homework. All without having five or more tabs open on the computer. After deciding Louisa followed up on the extras (spa/sites/dining reservations) we wanted. She dealt with the hotel directly and sent us our final agenda. Yes I will use her again..”
~ B.C, Denver, Colorado
“On behalf of both Travis and myself, THANK YOU for everything you did to make our Chicago trip the best I have ever had. From the early check in — to the unbelievable lakeside suite — to the birthday dessert for Travis — and then the champagne and pictures of us — amazing restaurants –we honestly cannot thank you enough. This weekend was the best of my life — and I’m so thankful for all of your help making it special!! Thank you also for helping Travis with finding proposal spots and a photographer — he went on and on about how great you are!!”
