Hello Patricia, You, you are a problem. Every trip you have arranged for us has been over the top! You are spoiling us. The Italy & France trip last year was incredible. The hotels. The tour guides. Everything was absolutely amazing! Now you send us off to Greece. Having never been to Greece I was, well, maybe a bit worried about the logistics of the trip. Damn if you didn't make this one of the easiest trips to take! Athens was fabulous. The hotel was amazing! And our tour guide did an excellent job of showing us both the tourist sites, and the sites tourists never see. Mykonos. The hotel was incredible. We so enjoyed relaxing and enjoying cocktails while looking over the Med. Our sailboat trip was both great, and occasionally on the verge of scary. A wonderful trip! When Laurie told me we were taking a ferry from Mykonos to Santorini, my expectation was a "cattle call". Instead, you booked us into a luxury class that was nicer than first class on an airplane. We were disappointed when the ferry ride was over. And the hotel on Santorini....I'm speechless! Words cannot describe how nice the room, the view and the wine was. I would highly recommend Canaves Oia to anyone. We are now relaxing over cocktails in Athens on our way home. Because of your superior planning, we are talking about a future trip to Spain and Portugal. I'm old. I'm retired. But you keep making each trip more spectacular than the last....so how can we stop traveling? Patricia, you are simply amazing! There is no way Laurie and I will take an international trip ever again without you handling it, and I'm sure that will translate to domestic trips too. Can't wait for Meadowood! Thanks for all your help! You arrange the absolute best trips ever! Sincerely, W Eckholm
Erika designed Jacquelyn's and my trip to Italy for our 16th Wedding Anniversary. We gave her the parameters of what we would like and then she made it better than we could have expected. Erika was very well organized and took us step by step through the entire trip before we booked any hotels, tours, etc. She helped us with navigating the normal trials of transportation to and from airports, train stations, day trips, and all across Italy and into Switzerland. She expertly and wisely used her contacts at the five star hotels to help make us feel as if we were the most important guests. Everywhere we went, she had provided a touring plan that we could follow to see all of the sites or use as a general guide if we decided to just stroll. Her attention to the smallest details is what really set this apart from anything we have ever done. A week before we flew to Italy, Erika had provided us with a complete packet that included itineraries, hotel contacts, train tickets, names of drivers for hotel transportation, where the driver would meet us and many other useful items or suggestions. I can only say that this was a trip of a lifetime and it could not have gone more smoothly or been more memorable. Oh yeah, did I mention that Erika is my ex-wife? I cannot stress enough how well your trip will be planned and how memorable she will make it. Thank you Erika for making Jacquelyn's and my anniversary one where we made wonderful memories and that we will never forget.
Heading to dinner, just wanted to say thank you for a very enjoyable trip. I truly understand the value you bring to a vacation/trip and wanted to let you know it's very much appreciated. Thank you!
Paris was amazing, thank you! And I think we spent the perfect amount of time there. We are all checked into the Westin in Rome. The balcony is a pleasant surprise! We're going to drink the lovely bottle of wine you sent before venturing out for dinner.
What a trip to Napa! Eternal thanks to Patricia McLemore and Mary Ellen who arranged 5 of the most fabulous days of wine tastings and tours possible! We were welcomed at wineries that typically don’t allow outsiders. Just incredible times. The arrangements for lodging at Meadowood in Napa were 5 star!
Dear Patricia, As your clients, there is something Jeff and I would like to say. I realize you are there for your clients 24/7 and they all bitch about something. We are afraid to inform you we can't come up with one thing to bitch about, so sorry. I guess you will have to accept that you are unparalleled at your job and too fucking good at what you do. So, sorry but we felt compelled to tell the truth. Signed, Your completely over satisfied clients. L. Frye and J. Campbell
And thank you for all you did in regards to our travels and honeymoon. It was a perfect first week as husband and wife. B Hoag
