Most of my fees are paid by the hotel, vendor or service provider. You'll pay no more (and often less) than rates you'll find online or directly. In addition, I may charge a research and planning fee as a one-off or, if you're a regular traveler who prefers a concierge service then let's chat about a subscription service and whether that makes sense for you .
Booking through a Virtuoso agent means complimentary benefits that you'd otherwise miss. While these vary by property, they may include breakfast, drinks, spa treatments or room upgrades. Let me guide you based on the interests you have, to enjoy an upgraded experience on your travels.

'Fantastic trip with every detail accounted for. Claire and her Norwegian colleagues were wonderful!! The guides and other service providers (Kayak & Glacier Hiking) were always on time, professional and very attentive to our needs.

'My wife and I worked with Claire Hearn to plan a 25th wedding anniversary trip to Greece recently. We just returned from two weeks in Athens and Santorini. Claire and her in country Greek colleagues helped plan a great trip. She listened to our needs and made excellent suggestions. She was flexible when we wanted to change our minds on a few things (more than once!). The trip went flawlessly - even down to the smallest of details! Excellent work Claire and team!'
