Outstanding Travel Advice and Support - Sheila Gallant-Halloran
Working with Sheila was a fantastic experience. She was extremely well-informed, organized, responsive, attentive and focused on my specific individual needs despite the fact that I was travelling with a large group. An unusual situation arose in Prague when I lost my phone on a coach that was taking us to the airport. Sheila, even though her official duties with our group were done and she was on a personal weekend, took a sincere interest in my situation, connected me to the coach company, identified a hotel employee who could speak to the bus driver in German, provided me with telephone numbers for the guide and bus driver etc. The phone was miraculously located and Sheila assisted in coordinating its return to me in Canada!! I can't say enough about her degree of care and professionalism, and would recommend her without reservation.
TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE

Sheila is a superlative travel agent. She has helped me choose trips that align with my interests and travel style. She is also able to find good fares for solo travelers.
Regent Cruise - By: Christopher in Ottawa
We have booked two cruises through Sheila and are in the process of booking a third. She is extremely professional, very personable and a wealth of information. We had a couple of mishaps (no fault of hers) to which she went out of her way to rectify. If you are planning a trip, talk to Sheila and get it done right
Customized trip to London & Paris -By: Sharon42 in Ottawa
Our recent trip to London and Paris was a wonderful family experience due in large part to the expert advice we received from Sheila. From the selection of a suitable tour company to helping us decide how to plan our “off-tour” time, Sheila was there to answer our questions and to provide excellent guidance. I would, without hesitation, recommend Sheila!
Every detail taken care of beautifully
By: Happy Couple Who Needed a Romantic Getaway - Trefor in Ottawa
We had an idea where we wanted to go, but Sheila really made it happen. We have three wonderful children, but we needed some time that was just for us. So we found remote Greek island and shared our ideas with Sheila. Quickly and easily, Sheila took care of all of the details, found us the absolutely best place to stay on the island, coordinated all the flights and layovers so all we had to do was relax. Sheila is such a clear communicator and was able to deal with every question we had. We ran into complications on our return trip and Sheila had a new plan sorted out in no time at all. We can't say enough about how wonderful Sheila is to work with. We highly recommend that you connect with her.
Experience Makes the Difference - Customized Getaway
I have always booked our get-aways, so I wasn't really sure what a "travel advisor" could offer our family of seasoned travellers. I was wrong. Sheila Gallant-Halloran added the finesse and expertise that made a good vacation, fantastic. She took the time to understand the needs of our family in order to create an experience... not just a vacation. And she found operators and hotels that I would likely have never considered. Sheila's knowledge and partnerships meant we were well taken care of while away.
Highly recommended - again!
New York Getaway -By: Nicole in Ottawa
Sheila has now convinced me of the benefits of using a travel advisor for travel!! I was somewhat skeptical at first thinking I could do just as good, and maybe even better, on my own. Not the case. It was very reassuring to know during our recent trip to NYC that Sheila was in contact with our hotel to ensure all went well with our arrangements with the hotel, especially given our travel delays. And indeed all went very well! We were treated like important guests and I'm certain it all had to do with us being Virtuoso guests! My only regret is that we didn't use Sheila to book our hotel for our upcoming trip to Montreal (it was booked months ago), but we will definitely be using .her for any upcoming trips. Sheila is a true professional and a pleasure to work with! thanks again Sheila!!
Highly Recommended - Every Detail was Perfect!
Tauck trip - By: Jennifer in Ottawa
I am extremely pleased with the trip Sheila booked for me. From flights that went very smoothly to being picked up at the airport to special experiences in Florence, Italy to a superb hotel, every single thing was perfect. The trip was everything I hoped it would be and more. Thanks so much to Sheila for making all the arrangements.
Regent Cruise - By: Hatsoff Harry in Ottawa
Sheila did an excellent job in finding us just the right trip to celebrate a special anniversary. Before giving us a few ideas she took the time to find out our likes and dislikes in a trip which was greatly appreciated by my wife and I. She is a very dedicated and thorough person and will use her again.
