Dan Mackey – Century Travel – Church Group Trip
Kitt Garrett, and her team at Discover New York & Beyond, do an absolutely fabulous job in organizing specialized programs. I know because I am a travel agent who specializes in arranging special interest tours for small groups of friends. I have found to my delight that there is no request so unusual that Kitt cannot meet it. The tours she has arranged for my clients have included a pearl exhibit at the Museum of Natural History and a meeting with a jeweler who works exclusively in pearls; an extensive, exclusive tour of the Cloisters at the Metropolitan Museum with a widely known authority on Medieval Art; a walking tour of Edith Wharton’s New York with her biographer,and a visit to a paper making studio to observe the process of creating rare papers for artists. Other clients have experienced the art of Harlem; private performances by Broadway actors who demonstrated the audition process with seats at their production following; and an entire wonderful restaurant reserved only for my clients.
Above all, there is phenomenal quality in everything Kitt Garrett and her team does from designing a program, to fitting a budget, to booking great restaurants with customized meals, to arranging transportation that minimizes distances and keeps costs down.
Group travel arranged by Kitt Garrett has proved to be a way to maximize profits by putting a multiple on the time invested in programing an individual client. I also create satisfied clients who experience a whole new kind of group travel, one that is seamless and personal.
