One of my greatest rewards is listening to clients’ stories when they return from their trips. I hope they enjoy travel as much as I do!
Africa, South America, Australia/New Zealand, Western Europe
My love of travel began when I was a young girl, watching black-and-white home movies of my father’s trips to Africa and India. Though the exotic has always had an allure for me, I’m equally happy sipping wine at a favorite winery in California or wandering the backroads of Europe. I have been lucky to travel quite a bit in my lifetime, and love sharing my enthusiasm when planning trips for others, whether gorilla tracking; seeing the sights in Paris; or relaxing on the beach with family. Through 27 years as a travel consultant, one of my greatest rewards is listening to clients’ stories when they return from their trips. I hope they enjoy travel as much as I do!
What My Clients Are Saying
Suzan makes great travel recommendations and helps with everything from soup to nuts. She was very responsive to all of my questions and our trip was PERFECT! We will continue to work with Suzan because she makes terrific suggestions and her follow-through is top-notch.
Suzan did a terrific job helping us plan our recent family trip to Hawaii. Making sure we had the room set up right for adjoining spaces, and even getting us breakfast included at a great rate. She checked up a few times to ensure it all went smoothly. Thank you Suzan!
Suzan was excellent & booked a trip of a lifetime for us to the Amalfi Coast. Her hotel recommendations were magnificent. We loved both properties in the Amalfi Coast & hope for a return trip sooner than later! She was detail oriented & anything I asked her for information on she quickly gained the info & shared! Could not have asked for a better trip! So pleased with Suzan’s efforts. The trip was seamless, we had no surprises or complaints.
Suzan has been our agent for well over 12 years and every trip has been well planned and she has is always a pleasure to work with. This spring she helped organize our trip to Italy and booked our family for a lovely stay in New York City. We look to Suzan for all our trips and and appreciate her expertise and professional manner.
Suzan was an excellent communicator — wanted to understand our family’s needs and desires for a rare holiday getaway. She worked quickly to present us hotel options, and provided us accurate detailed instructions for transport. She obtained the best toons st the resort for us without a lot of notice and we had a beautiful, luxe getaway. Suzan is a delight to work with and she’s a seasoned, experienced professional. Many people forget that travel agents are still an option in the age of the internet but we were in much better hands with her and the Virtuoso program than if we had planned our vacation ourselves.
Susan constructed a wonderful 3 day swing in Hong Kong on the heels of our Beijing trip. The visit included excellent tours that were both large and small in scope. We stayed at the Peninsula and there is no other hotel situated and appointed that could rival this experience. Every aspect of our stay was a true delight because she pays close attention to our preferences and plans the experience accordingly. We have been working with Susan for years and when we plan a trip she is our first call.
Suzan is a delight to work with. She asked appropriate questions to help us plan a trip that exceeded our expectations. Rather than spread our allotted time over a few countries she suggested we spend all our time in Slovenia. That turned out to be excellent advice as the diverse countryside provided unique experiences: Piran for Its beach town relaxation and fish restaurants, Brda for vineyards and excellent wines, Lake Bled for its charm and romance, Ljubljana for a big city with small city accessibility, and Bovec for heart-stopping views of the Alps. We look forward to planning our next trip with Suzan.
We have planned many stellar trips with Suzan and the most recent to SE Asia proved her value once again. We were overwhelmed with the decisions about which countries to visit, where to stay, and what excursions to plan. Based on our unique preferences, Suzan planned an itinerary that exceeded our expectations and reduced our anxiety about getting from point A to point B, hotel accommodations, restaurants, country-specific activities, and arranging guides and drivers. We look forward to planning our next trip to New Zealand with her.
