What People are Saying About Trish Gastineau

Trish Gastineau, Virtuoso Travel Advisor Specializing in Europe

Trish Gastineau, European Travel Specialist A Proud Virtuoso Travel Advisor

The trip was perfect. Trish made sure that there were no surprises. She made sure that our room was located near everything so my husband did not have far to walk to dining room etc. She checked on us during the trip to make sure we did not need anything. There is not one detail that I think she missed. Our flights were planned to meet our needs and we had no problems. The cruise was more than I had expected, I could not have asked for anything better. Prior to leaving she meet with us, explained each excursion we had planned on taking and made sure all our questions were answered. This is the second trip Trish has planned for us. We will definitely use Trish for our next trip. She is the best, she wants you to have the best experience possible and does everything in her power to make it happen.

Trish did an excellent job of helping plan the perfect trip. She coordinated 3 peoples different goals and made us all happy. All details were handled and communicated to me before the trip in an organized fashion which made everything easy to find. Everything that was within her control was handled professionally and correctly. Even flight cancellations and plan B’s were handled timely and efficiently. I absolutely would recommend Trish if you are wanting a professional travel planner who is organized and friendly. ~Kay C.


Trish is an energetic person who brings enthusiasm and superior customer service to everything she does. She is a competent and diligent sales professional that would be a wonderful addition to any team. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Trish  ~Pam M


My husband and I have not travelled internationally until now. We were excited and apprehensive. Trish Gasteneau helped us to make wise choices and arranged a trip that was trouble-free and all we had anticipated. The weather for our Rhine River Christmas Markets river cruise was less than ideal. Every detail of our trip went off without a hitch. The ship recommended by Trish was fabulous. The food was delicious and plentiful! The staff were Ritz Carlton quality. And we made some wonderful new friends. We are planning an Alaskan cruise in the near future, and Trish will be “in charge” of that adventure as well.  ~Sandra N.


Trish helped us plan our dream trip to Hawaii with some very difficult flights in to our island. She also planned a large family cruise that was one of the best trips we ever took. She is knowledgeable, and competent, while having a deep passion for meeting the needs of her clients. I have recommended Trish over the years and will continue to do so. With years in the travel business, and a heart of gold, it all makes her a top pick.  ~Susi H.


This was my 1st trip to Europe and I can honestly say that it was the most enjoyable trip/vacation that I have ever experienced! That was due to Trish’s experience and expertise, if something  even surfaced it was quickly and efficiently taken care of before it became a ‘problem’! I can’t remember ever taking a vacation that I had absolutely NO complaints what-so-ever!  Trish is the best!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent river cruise on Amawaterways. Trish was excellent to work with in deciding which cruise line and itinerary best suited our desires. We are frequent travelers and Trish shared many options and provided her insights into the pros and cons of each. We settled on an Eastern Danube cruise which took us to several former soviet republics that we had not visited before. Great experience all around. She also was helpful in planning our individual pre and post cruise extensions.

During our last trip, Trish made some difficult, last-minute hurdles look like mere bumps in the road- and handled everything graciously! She’s resourceful, creative, and generous with her ability to make a trip turn out beautifully despite any surprises that come along.  ~Emily F.


I had the fortune to with Trish on many occasions : we worked side by side creating very special Italian Experiences for her clients. I always found her to be detailed, thorough, thinking outside the box and above all totally professional and caring about her clients exact needs.   ~Andrea A


I have been planning vacations with Trish for 20+ years.  She takes the time to listen to what you want in a vacation ie…how much you want to spend, how much activity you want or what kind of food & drink you like.  She thinks of everything and is a dream to deal with.  I never hesitate to refer people to her because I know she will take great care of them.  She will never book something for you that she wouldn’t book for herself or her own family members.  She has integrity and truly enjoys helping her clients plan the perfect vacation.  Virtuoso is lucky to have Trish on their team.

When I served as President of a local Business networking chapter I met Trish Gastineau. She is a very caring and concerned professional. Her objective is to always serve her clients well. Trish would often inform the group of travel arrangements and discounts that would have taken us long hours to search out.

She has always carried herself with integrity as her longtime loyal clients will attest. I wholeheartedly recommend her.   ~Rick W

Patricia Pitsel, Ph.D. Trish has been wonderful in helping us arrange our frequent flier miles – even through Air Canada which has to be one of the least friendly airline point systems in the world!
