Looking to tour the Vatican after hours or get a reservation to that new restaurant? For over 30 years, I have cultivated and developed close partnerships with Luxury Hotel General Managers and Top Destination Specialists all over the world that act as an extension to my expert planning services to further enhance your travel experience and ensure a memorable and unforgettable journey. Private tours, late check-out and access to hot spots before anyone else are just a few benefits of these relationships.
Custom Travel Planning
Developing an intimate relationship with my clients enables me to create and design travel adventures that are truly unique and life-changing. Every trip begins with a fact finding call where I ask you about your prior travel experiences, what you are looking for, and what you like and dislike. I then work with my partners to craft you a truly customized trip with exceptional value.
Value added Amenities
Travel in Luxury is a proud affiliate of Avenue Two Travel, a Virtuoso Member Agency. Virtuoso is the the travel industry’s leading luxury network of travel agencies, hotels, cruise lines, and tour operators. This by-invitation network grants our clients privileged access to travel and hotel offers, exclusive amenities, like complimentary breakfast, $100 hotel credits, early check in, and rare experiences not obtainable otherwise.
We have been clients of Christina O'Toole of Avenue Two Travel for many years and have had too many great experiences with her to recount them all. We love traveling with our teenage children and also travel separately for work from time to time. Christina's help and advice are invaluable in booking air travel, finding just the right hotel or resort and in ensuring the best experience. When I went to meet two friends in New York City, Christina was able to secure us a great rate with added amenities at a 5-star hotel. We tried numerous times without success to secure a dinner reservation at the nearby Polo Bar. I mentioned it to Christina and, within hours, we had a confirmation of a table for us at a peak time. When our family traveled to Italy last summer, Christina arranged each part of our journey from hotels to train travel and even a personal tour through the Vatican. She is also knowledgeable about travel insurance and other details that you don't necessarily think of when focused on vacation planning. When things go wrong (e.g. flight delays or cancelled plans), Christina is always quick to respond and uses her professional skills and connections to make necessary adjustments. Although many people make their own travel arrangements online, we have found that there is no substitute for the calm, competent and experienced service that Christina delivers whether for a quick overnight business trip or a lengthy international vacation. We recommend her highly to all of our friends, many of whom are also satisfied clients.
