What our clients are saying about us

“GR8 Miami put up a great event and they proved that they are the ones to contact for luxury concierge matters. And in the end, the important thing is the amount raised in order to help people in Japan through the Red Cross. Once again thanks for everything to this great team.”


Novak Djokovic

“It was a pleasure to partake in such a great event for an even greater cause. I would like to thank GR8 for giving me the opportunity to play tennis with one of the legends, Novak Djokovic. It was an unforgettable experience.”


American Express Centurion

“I cannot begin to express my thanks with all of your efforts. We created some magic! I knew I had found the best partners in the world that understand my vision. I have to say I was a little teary-eyed pulling into the airport.”


Experience Director of Exclusive Resorts

“As an icon in the industry, our team is delighted to associate with such a knowledgeable and professional group of experts that understand the world of fashion as we do.”

YPO

WPO Member

“GR8 Group, as a recent patron I can applaud the access that you provide. Thanks again for the great experience and for all the special and spectacular enhancements to a trip of a lifetime.”


Fortune 500 Entrepreneur

“The feedback we have received from those that attended (your event) has been overwhelmingly positive, particularly with regards to the Masquerade Ball, which was a truly spectacular event. Many have even gone so far as to say it was ‘the best party they had ever attended, which is truly high praise!” “


PARTNER AT OLIVER WYMAN

“My husband and son rave about their experience at the World Cup with GR8. It was truly incredible. Meeting Casey Keller made the year for my son.”


Exclusive Resorts Member

“The quality of the experience CANNOT be exceeded… If you want the best experience, you are going to get it through GR8.
The onsite staff are there to ensure a seamless experience from A to Z. I have worked with DMC’s all over the world, and I would work with GR8 over all of them, hands down. GR8 was recommended to Inspirato for our exclusive pre & post cruise programs that have become very popular with our Members. Never knowing what you might get when working with a new partner, I was immediately impressed when they came back with the proposal for our Venice and Rome programs. They listened very well to everything I needed, especially around budgets and exclusive access to some of the best known sights in Venice and Rome. I knew immediately we were on the right track, and I could sell these programs to my Members as something very special. Inspirato has now gone beyond just the pre & post cruise programs, and consulting with GR8 on other experiences as well.”


Holly Bryan (Rome and Venice 2016)
