“Michael is an absolute joy to work with. He listens and provides a truly unique travel experience no matter what your destination. We have traveled domestic and abroad on his advice and I no longer travel without his assistance. We Love Michael! And so will you!”

L. Atkins

“Mike has booked several trips for my family. The service has been excellent and the special touches we received upon arrival have been wonderful. My kids were blown away by the special attention they received from the various resorts and hotels. This would not have happened if not for the connections we receive by dealing with Mike. I have recommended him to friends and family.”

M. Parks

“Thank you Michael, for making all of my travel arrangements so much easier. I typically do all of the research and reservations myself and decided to use you for my 24th anniversary trip with my husband. It was so much easier and you got us a better price. We were treated like royalty because of the VIP status you were able to get for us. Because of that, I am so glad you are now taking care of my family vacation for the summer along with booking all of our dinner reservations and excursions. Your extra services has really made this a true vacation this year!!! I couldn’t thank you enough.”

T. Pittman

“Our first cruise was an amazing experience, with our Virtuoso Voyager club amenities it really helped personalize our experience. Kudos to our Travel Advisor Michael Podina. We very much look forward to working with him in the future.”

J. Graham

“I have worked with Michael on several trips and each and every time he is consistently on top of every detail. He goes above and beyond to take care of our requests and offering additional services. Michael takes the stress out of planning trips and turns it into a fun experience. He is creative with ideas, fast in response and always ahead of the game. I would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for their next getaway!”

M. Lawrenz

“This was our second booking with Michael and again, he and his contacts in Italy delivered big time! The accommodations were perfectly located and the views were breathtaking. We him budget, what we wanted to be able to do/see and he took care of the rest. It was so nice not having to worry about where to pick up a taxi from the airport to the hotel and not having to lug our over packed suitcases through the streets. For our future travel plans, which I hope will be many, my first and only contact to help us with our journeys is Michael at Lifetime Getaways.”
