Amy and her network of team members are super solid. Their recommendations on how and where to travel hit or exceed our expectations again and again. Whether your travel is domestic or abroad, you can count on Amy. Her attention to detail and coordination of so many moving parts is nearly flawless.

Holiday Resort


By: Curtis 

Amy planned the trip of our lifetime to the Seychelles for our Honeymoon and couldn't have been happier with the results. She is always easy to work with, understands our needs and preferences and in the rare occasion of an issue arising, is always available to rectify it quickly and satisfactorily. We don't trust anyone else to plan travel for us and have never been anything less than ecstatic with our results!

Hawaiian Vacation

By: Joe & Shannon

Amy set up everything from start to finish, which included visits to all four Hawaiian islands, rental cars, and daily excursions. Amy was extremely accommodating when we wanted to tweak our plans even at the last minute. The itinerary she provided was very detailed and easy to follow. We could have never planned this trip on our own.

Applauding Amy

By: Mandy

Amy was amazing in all regards. I swear she doesn’t sleep! No matter when you email her she gets right back to you. Day or night. If she is stateside or abroad. Does not matter, she is on it! She is professional, informative, knowledgeable and extremely thorough. She took the worry and stress out of planning a big trip. I felt the utmost confidence in her highly capable hands. No question was too minute. She treats everything you ask her with high regard and precision. I highly recommend her and will definitely seek her for future trips!

Amy never disappoints!

By: Gina

I contacted my go-to Amy for a last minute all-inclusive trip suggestion for the month of July. She suggested Secrets Los Cabos and it was perfect and just what we were looking for. In less than 24 hours flights and hotel were booked and we left in less than 30 days of booking. I couldn’t have asked for a better service. Amy is fast, efficient, and proactive in making sure we had everything in line for such a quick booking. She’s literally the best! We’ll be back soon!

By: Joseph

Amy was great to work with. We are a family of six that was meeting from three different places around the world to enjoy a once in a lifetime vacation in Italy. Amy listened to our ideas and balanced what we thought we wanted with her experience and expertise to softly suggest ideas to explore. She then put together a trip that was absolutely fantastic. Amy helped us with the right places to stay, the right things to see and the perfect itinerary so that we had a lot to see and do and still felt relaxed. There we a lot of little things that needed to be scheduled. With Amy’s help everything fell into place and our hope of a lifetime of memories became pictures and stories that we will be able to share forever.

Attention to Detail

By: Bradley

Amy is amazing. She is very patient in answering all of my many questions and works hard to understand the type of trip we are hoping to have. Our recent trip to Alaska was a trip of a lifetime, most likely never to be repeated, and Amy fully delivered. Everything was perfect, relaxing and just as she outlined it would be. She is always available to help and no questions asked by me ever made me feel dumb or too needly (even though I am sure I was both at times).

Thank you, Amy.

Cannot say enough good things about Amy Rectenwald

By: Angela

Working with Amy was an amazing experience. Every single thing was planned out for us without having to think twice. She was quick with responses and made sure the trip was everything we asked for down to every detail, even with last minute requests. I’ve been on many trips but this exceeded my expectations. So much so we plan to go back. We have never gone to the same place twice. I told Amy what I was looking for in a resort and it ended up being the best resort I’ve been to. There is no doubt that I will be using Amy for my travel plans in the future. Very impressed!

Rating: ★★★★★ We recently had the pleasure of Amy as our Travel Planner for our family vacation, and I must say it exceeded all my expectations. Planning a family vacation can be a daunting task, but thanks to Amy, our recent trip was nothing short of extraordinary. I cannot praise her services enough for their meticulous attention to detail, personalized approach, and unwavering commitment to making our family vacation truly unforgettable.

She provided expert advice and suggestions, going the extra mile to ensure that our family vacation was tailored to our specific needs.

Excellent and seamless 

By: Rosanne 

Amy is service-driven, and we know we can always expect a no-worries, fabulous trip. She arranged our Paris hotel with transfers, and a food tour. Our hotel package included bar service as well as a delightful wine and cheese picnic we could use in our room, or as a picnic to-go, any time we requested it.  She also arranged our pre-cruise hotel, and the Sea Dream cruise. It's so nice to know she is a phone call away should we have any troubles.

Absolutely marvelous!

By: Kristin

This is the first time I’ve used a travel advisor and I’m so glad my friend recommended Amy to help plan our vacation in Italy. Amy’s itinerary (transportation, tours, transfers, and accommodations) was perfect for my family. We loved the drivers and tour guides and stayed in fabulous hotels and apartments. The Axus travel app was so nice and kept all of our tours, transfers, and accommodations organized at our fingertips. I would highly recommend Amy and look forward to working with her for future adventures. Thank you Amy!

What can I say, Amy continues to outdo trip after trip! Each trip Amy plans gets better and better! This trip was absolutely unbelievable! Amy put everything together from the best hotels to the greatest excursions and of course, her perfect little touches go such a long way. We felt like we were on an unofficial honeymoon filled with adventure, relaxation and ultimate tranquility! The trip was absolutely magical. Not sure how we're going to top this trip but knowing Amy, I have complete faith that she will! So grateful for Amy's knowledge and meticulous attention to detail. Can't wait to plan the next one!

By: Tampa LT 

Amy is the best and well worth the money spent. I would highly recommend her!

By: Tonya 

This trip was wonderful and Amy was so good at making this easy for me. So many times I didn't do what I was supposed to and she would gently remind me, update me, and answer my questions again and again with the patience of a saint. I really didn't have to do much of anything--it was all so easy. I got to St. Lucia, my driver was there, I had the paperwork I needed and it was a delight. Thank you, Amy! This trip was amazing! You found us just the right space and helped to get us there and back with grace and style. Thank you!!!

First time using a travel agent 

By: Clare  

We had never used to travel agent before and we were very happy with all the different options that Amy came up with. Amy was very patient every time we had changed our minds and asked questions and had more requirements! She came back with multiple choices and we ended up having a great time on our trip. Things were seamless , from the flight plans, hotel plans and even connections from the hotel to the airport. We really enjoyed the experience working with Amy.

Travel Planning at it's Finest!

By: GC 

Amy was unbelievable as usual! I have been working with Amy for a few years now. When I came to Amy with this trip, it was a special trip that I wanted to plan for my mom's 70th birthday. My mom's dream was to go back to Italy with her family. I asked Amy to come up with a trip that included both tours (but not too much walking) and leisure. We started off in Rome and ended in Sicily. There was nothing that I could think of that could've made this trip any better. From a welcome bottle of Prosecco to the Hotels selected, even the partners Amy works with were unbelievable. This was a trip that we'll talk about for a lifetime. Her expertise and attention to detail is unmatched. From start to finish everything was taken care of seamlessly. Thank you Amy for another unforgettable experience, can't wait for the next one!

Working with Amy was so easy and fun! We knew where we wanted to go and what we wanted to see, and she handled the rest! It was so amazing to take a trip and just show up. The details were all taken care of - from booking us a dinner reservation to organizing transfers from location to location. We would highly recommend booking with Amy to our family and friends!

Honeymoon Review

By: Court & Mike

Amy helped my husband Mike and I plan our honeymoon and choosing to work with her was one of the best decisions we have made! Amidst all of the wedding planning craziness, it was SO nice to have Amy on top of the honeymoon. Amy is patient, extremely responsive, kind, dedicated, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and an overall pleasure to work with. She planned for us two unforgettable weeks in Cabo San Lucas at the Resort at Pedregal and One & Only Palmilla and every single day was absolute perfection. The amenities we received through Amy/Virtuoso were great - spa credits, breakfast daily, upgrades upon arrival, etc. It was truly a stress free and enjoyable experience working with Amy and we will certainly not be planning any future travel without her! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Amy - you are the BEST in the industry! We are forever grateful for you and we will never forget our magical honeymoon. We absolutely recommend her to any and everyone!!!
