The two best trips ever

Reviewed By Barbara and Dennis - Duluth, MN | Traveled to Caribbean
Susan has always given us prompt, efficient service. She is very knowledgeable about the different cruises we have considered, and she has been able to help us choose the best options for us. She is also good at helping us choose good flights. I have no complaints, and we already have plans to have her help us with our next travel plan. We went to Alaska last June, and we just got back from the Caribbean. We plan to visit different islands in the Caribbean next year.

A trip of a lifetime.

Reviewed By Charles - Maple Grove, MN | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
In the beginning of our planning work for our trip to Peru and Ecuador, we tried to work directly with Globus, the tour operator. This was difficult and we were running into misunderstandings and other difficulties. That is when we asked Susan to do this for us. From then on it was smooth and efficient. A last minute problem surged when some of our return trips as proposed by Globus were long and cumbersome. Again Susan was able to solve the issue and offered a much better flights schedule.
Susan was also very responsive when we had questions about our travel insurance, or flight schedule.

Amazing first time cruise with family.

Reviewed By Mike and Heidi - Brooklyn Park, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Susan worked with us on our first family vacation and first cruise. She helped make our trip beyond all our expectations. She helped us through all the planning, documentation, ticketing and answered all of our many questions. She made an overwhelming process very pleasant. I will never book anything like this without her!

Fun with family and friends!

Reviewed By Happy Traveler - Rogers, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Susan did a great job organizing all six families with our flights and rooms. She did quite a bit of research to find a resort that worked for all six families and took care of everything once we made our decision. Susan was very easy to work with and answered everyone's questions as they came up. I would absolutely recommend Susan to others for their travel planning! We had a wonderful trip!

An amazing cruise.

Reviewed By Debra Z - Bethel Minnesota | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Susan is one of the most pleasant and hard-working people I have ever met. On our Alaskan cruise, we had two people in wheelchairs, two people on oxygen and one with a bad back. This was our first major travel experience and our first Cruise. Susan handled every single detail and I didn't have to worry about anything. We contacted her so many times with small details, questions, and concerns--some, just because we hadn't been on a cruise before. And every time we contacted her, she was gracious and clear. I've taken a second cruise with Sue as our agent. And again she handled this trip awesome. We are planning a third cruise with the same oxygen and wheelchair issues. I would wish to have no one else help me help me plan other than Susan!

Best Travel Agent

Reviewed By Mary - MN | Traveled to Europe
Outstanding. Started working with Susan when we wanted a trip to the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, CA. Our previous agency was unable to help with our request. Since then we have also used Susan for a trip to England, Scotland and Ireland (CIE tours) and a trip to Italy (Insights). All the experiences were great and memorable. Each time she made it easy from start to finish.

Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By CT - Plymouth, MN | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
We were lucky to connect with Susan when we happened to walk into her travel agency as we first began to plan our trip. Susan was helpful and dependable throughout the process - answering promptly any follow up questions we had as we were planning our trip. Our itinerary was complete and we had no problems on our trip. She was a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end!
