Client Testimonial:

“Our Virtuoso advisor has become an essential part of every vacation we now take. Olivia arranged a once in a life time anniversary trip for my wife and I to Paris where every detail was thought of and planned for. Amazing meals, personal tours, multiple options and suggestions depending on our mood. We could never have arranged such a  great trip on our own. We now use her for every trip we plan as she is able to add value in multiple ways.  Thanks for helping us making memories Olivia!  -Mike and Renee K”

About Me:

About Me:

I lived in Germany and Guam for many years, and traveled extensively from these locations. I traveled from Guam to Japan, through Russia, partly on the Trans Siberian Express visiting Tashkent, Moscow and St Petersburg and across Europe.

I am a graduate of UCLA and was a professional dancer and television producer before I moved out of the US. I have been a travel consultant since 1985.

Client Testimonials:

“About 10 years ago a dear friend of mine recommended Heather Ross to me as a travel agent.  I travel several times a year, always seem to have special travel needs and changes in my work that make it a real necessity to have a good travel agent.  I was delighted to come to know Heather and to experience a level of expertise and service far above anything I had known before.  Heather searches out the best connections, the best seats, and has been extremely helpful and generous in making the changes that inevitably come with my travel plans.  For example, when a flight is cancelled, and I call her, she has already begun checking how I can make another flight, and directs me where to go in the airport to make that happen.  She has spent a lot of time on the phone, on my behalf, with the airlines.

Recently, with the change in United and Continental, Heather has been spending several hours at a time arranging the possibility of upgrades, different schedules, retrieving pin numbers and seat assignments that seemed to somehow get lost in United’s shuffle.  Her patience amazes me, as does her dedication to really working with me as a client.  I feel well taken care of with Heather’s high degree of knowledgeability, and can trust that I will get where I am going in the most direct and comfortable way.  She has also taken care of my car reservations and recommended hotels to me – one of which is now my world favorite in Warsaw, Poland.

If you are looking for a travel agent, I could not recommend anyone more highly than Heather.  She is a pro.  WHen you have a question, she answers it and any problems arising for the traveler, she handles with ease.”   – Sharon Binder

Client Quotes:

Spain was wonderful and we all really appreciated the hard work you put into finding us such great hotels as well as tours and travel suggestions. Our guide at the Alhambra was incredibly knowledgeable as was Sebastian in Madrid. We ended up spending 7.5 hours with him including a long lunch. He sure knows his history and was eager to educate us. I think he appreciated how curious we all were.” -Pam, Laura & Jeff ”

We had a fabulous vacation. The time you spent finding out our needs was clear from the itinerary. You did an unbelievable job on our itinerary and the guides and drivers were awesome. The itinerary was flawless and hotels were very nice. I carefully kept tract of the name of each guide with the intention of singling the best out for praise, but I rate each of them at 10 out 10. They were all exceedingly professional and knowledgeable, projected pride in their work, and did a wonderful job of seamlessly adjusting their tours to match Jackie’s abilities. I will be happy to serve as a reference for you.” -Jackie & Bruce

He loves to share this fascination with others and in the process, opens your eyes and mind to these new adventures. He has gathered a generation of explorers from around the world to share their personal stories of adventure, just so that we all can marvel and dream our own travel adventures.” -Bruce Naglee, Hotel management Arizona

“For our honeymoon Tom personally planned all details of our three week trip to Thailand. Every little detail was well planned, including the best hotels, guides, drivers conveniences, adventure, etc., all at a reasonable cost. We had a a fabulous experience and we would not hesitate to have Tom do travel planning for us in the future.” – Nancy & Jeff, Ashland, OR

About Me:

About Me:

My passion for travel began at age 12 when traveling alone on the Orient Express from Paris to Salzburg each summer. After being exposed to numerous foreign nationals at a young age travel sparked my interest with the desire to explore the world. After a career in education and approaching retirement years it seemed only natural to jump start a new career to finally fulfill my dream of travel! Having now worked in the travel industry for 15 years my passion for travel continues! Every vacation package is like my own! Expertise, experience and enthusiasm are key to success. Creating a unique experience with classic flair yet value driven is my goal!

Client Testimonials:

Gudrun has been a godsend for our family, managing five complex trips on three continents. Nothing seems to phase her: special events, unusual housing requests, and family members converging from multiple points. We have visited a favela school in Rio, taken a jeep tour of the Golan Heights, crossed heavily armed boarders, rented an apartment in Rome, and sailed blissfully on a gulet along the Turkish coast. Gudrun has arranged for expert guides and flawless service everywhere we have gone. Traveling by plane, train, speedboat, sailboat, bus and automobile (even camel!), our family has benefited from her attention to detail.
Gudrun has addressed the needs of all the members of our family, from finding the perfect place for a seven year-old’s birthday dinner to arranging activities suitable for a pair of teenage boys and their grandmother! She was indispensable when weather delays in the US caused a significant revision of our itinerary, and I am grateful for her advice and her flexibility. I plan to call on her again for our next adventure.

“I have been blessed with an extraordinary travel agent whom I also consider a close friend – Gudrun Vest. Her knowledge, attention to detail, and customer service is by far the best we have experienced with all of our vendors and agents with whom I have dealt with during the 30+ years I have been traveling. She goes above and beyond the call of duty with cheerfulness and efficiency every time!”
