Ms. Guided Reviews
"I leaned on Jessica and Ms. Guided Travel to plan a solo Italian vacation as an extension of a work trip. Though I am well-traveled, I wanted all guesswork removed and take full advantage of a white-glove experience - and I was not disappointed! Jessica took the time to learn about my likes and dislikes, my absolute must-haves and tailored the perfect Italian Summer vacation for a solo female traveler. All accommodations were exactly as expected and every excursion was carefully planned with the help of local representatives. I would highly recommend Ms. Guided Travel for anyone looking for a stress-free vacation (as they all should be). Thank you, Jessica, for a trip I will never forget and I look forward to my next planned adventure!" - Ms. S. Hall, Scottsdale, AZ. Italy, August 2019
"Superb attention to details. Excellent suggestions for making your trip easier. I absolutely recommend Ms. Guided Travel. Give this a try you will not be disappointed. Five-star service." - Sally & Kim, Arizona USA. Amsterdam & Rhine River Cruise, October 2019
Jessica planned my dream vacation to Germany. She planned every step for us and provided invaluable advice. The hotels were located near numerous restaurants and shopping. We moved between 6 cities in 16 days. Everything went smoothly with the drivers. The tours she provided were outstanding. I will use Jessica again. If anyone would ask for a personal reference I would be happy to give it. - JC, Pennsylvania USA. Germany, September 2019.
When we saw the “surprise vacation” concept pop up on facebook, we thought: This is perfect for our honeymoon! We jumped at the opportunity to be the inaugural 'Ms. Guided Journey'. A surprise destination filled with once in a lifetime experiences meticulously planned out by travel experts, AND it's all within the budget of our choice—count us in!
From the moment we said “yes please!” to Ms. Guided mystery travel, we’ve been nothing short of blown away. To begin the planning, Jessica asked us a series of carefully chosen questions, covering various aspects from personality traits to bucket list adventures, to paint a picture of what we think makes travel unforgettable. She then followed up with a close friend of ours (one that can keep a secret!) on details to ensure she was building the perfect trip for us. It’s clear she has a passion for making her clients’ travel dreams a reality!
Confirming our trip schedule and approving the cost was a breeze, and Jessica ensured making the payment would not reveal the destination in any way. You know you’re in good hands when all your booking concerns are already anticipated! Jessica’s enthusiasm for creating a unique experience for us has been a delight. If the planning phase is any indication, we know we’ll have any support we need while traveling abroad. From trip insurance info to itinerary updates, communicating with Ms. Guided Travel has been ideal—we’ve only been kept in the dark about one thing: our top secret destination 🙂 - Whitney Hackstadt, Texas USA.

Holidays in Italy with friends were great for my soul and body. Jessica made sure that the days were full of new discoveries, culture and excellent cuisine. The accommodation was dreamlike, with great views. A wonderful surprise was the movie under the stars, prepared by Jessica. I recommend that you organize your trip with Ms. Guided Tours - there will be something special. - Jasmina Opec Voroš, Murska Sobota, Slovenia. Ms. Guided Summer Umbrian Retreat, 2018
Jessica set up my entire holiday in Scotland, quite the undertaking since I was there for a month, and I stayed in 8 different accommodations and drove 1,200 miles. It was an outstanding tour, with all her picks on where I stayed, She has impeccable taste in where to go. I have had many agencies set up trips, but none were as passionate as Ms.Guided tours at making sure things go as perfect as humanly possible. I did have a couple of things happen that were my fault, and even though Jessica was in Italy busy with another project, she made it her responsibility to make sure that my problem was taken care of, and made sure that I knew I could depend on her if anything else came up!
I give Jessica Avery's, Ms.Guided Tour's 5+ Stars! You won't find a better Agent! - Randy Skeen, Alaska USA. Scotland, 2018
The Ms. Guided Tours Umbrian Summer Retreat was an amazing experience in every way! The remote mountain location in a beautifully restored farmhouse surrounded by greenery and trees as far as the eye could see in the rolling hills of Umbria, Italy was the perfect spot for a retreat. There were butterflies flitting by day in the flower gardens and fireflies dancing all around by night…magical! On the evenings we weren’t enjoying the outstanding local restaurants or visiting other cities (Venice, Florence Assisi and more), we would watch Italian movie classics under the stars with blankets and pillows on the lawn sipping wine and eating fresh, local bread and cheese. Delicious and fun!
The beautiful and historic nearby towns of Citta di Castello and Pietralunga offered outstanding local produce, shopping and dining experiences that were surprisingly budget-friendly, and the locals are very warm and welcoming, making you feel like family. No touristy feeling at all!
On my way from Rome, I got stranded at a train station late at night. Jessica immediately made the almost two-hour drive to pick me up. I felt so secure knowing she would find me, no matter where or what time. I joked that she should make “No woman left behind!” a part of her company motto. It would certainly be apt.
One of the two nights we stayed in Venice, we took in a Vivaldi concert and afterward had champagne and hors-d'oeuvres in St. Mark’s Square, where they were playing live classical music. It was beautiful and magical.
I hope to make this retreat every year and visit the new friends I made there. I would definitely recommend a Ms. Guided retreat! Jessica took care of everything, so I could just relax and enjoy myself. I left feeling refreshed and with a renewed dedication to self-care.
Great company, great food, great scenery, great overall experience! - Madelein Davidson, Arizona USA. Ms. Guided Summer Umbrian Retreat, 2018
I joined my wife for her last two days at the Women’s Retreat and the setting was magical. Jessica helped organize activities for us while we were there, including a day trip to Florence and a personal visit at the home of a local artist. These touches made Italy come alive. Thanks, Jessica. - Lance Davidson, Arizona USA. Ms. Guided Summer Umbrian Retreat, 2018
