I love Germany!! As some who has lived there I love going back.

This May I took 20 of my favorite people for a week and we had a total blast!

Marien Platz is where all the action is - restaurants,cafes, shops and bars.

Foodie paradise with beer and wine.

When fears ran rampant, Susan had the steady hand.

Reviewed By Dr. Paul & Family - NYC | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Long story short - 1st class Maui trip booked early, then canceled due to pandemic.

Fortunately for us, Susan was on the case with updates, emails, phone calls & text messages. Not a day went by when she did not at least send a comforting message about what to expect and how it would happen. Of course, since Susan has been our travel agent for many years, we count on her for the right products every time, the right trip insurance among them.

We got a full refund of our trip within 30 days, just like Susan promised, while frightening stories were found in the news daily about thousands of travelers who would likely never see a return of their money from well-known online travel sites who relied on small print legalese to allow them to wiggle out of refunds.

So..... Susan was with us through all the good times and, thankfully, helped steer us through the uncertain waters that came upon us all in early 2020.

What's a travel professional like THAT worth? For us, there is no
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Susan Blume responded:
In difficult times we must all pull together and give 150% to make sure our guests needs are served as quickly and professionally as possible. I am so happy that I was able to do that for you. No matter what happens we will always put our guests first and we greatly appreciate the loyalty our guests show us in return. Thank you and looking forward to working with you family for many years to come!

Living a Dream in Greece!!

Hi Susan , So sorry I have not gotten back to you yet ! With settling back into reality and setting up my classroom I have been so busy . I just wanted to say thank you for planning us such an absolutely amazing trip ! We had such a wonderful experience due to your perfect planning . From the time we got to Athens to sadly leaving Mykonos we felt like we were living in a dream ! I have already recommended you to a couple that is looking to go to Greece next September for their honeymoon ! Hopefully they reach out ! Here are a couple pictures from our journey ! Thanks again , and I will definitely be in touch again to plan future trips !

Don't even THINK about another agency....

We have benefited from Susan's trusted services for at least 15 years (and still counting!). She's booked trips for us on many occasions. She and her team have connections for things you COULD NEVER KNOW for your trip - hidden upgrades, better accommodations, discounted luxuries, time-saving ideas on excursions - as the saying goes, 'you can't get what you didn't know you needed.' Susan has saved us thousands just by asking the right questions and doing WAY MORE than just scouring google for good fares. She and her office are plugged into the 'secret handshake club' where everything is for the asking. If you want a trip planner who'll just get you a decent rate and be gone, you don't need Susan. BUT if you're looking for a trip of a lifetime and have an idea of what, where and when (and how much) she's the guide who'll get you the trip you want with the amenities you need and the 'stuff you forgot about.'

Same sex couple looking for a honeymoon!

Easy process, great experience, excellent customer service Susan at Personal Escape Travel was a pleasure to work with. As a same sex couple, she understood our needs and arranged the most amazing honeymoon ever! The communication was spot on and the process was very easy. I would recommend her services to any and everyone. Go check the team at Personal Escape Travel out for your travel needs!

Susan is Awesome!!

We always book our cruises and all inclusive resorts through Personal Escape Travel! Susan is always so knowledgeable of many places and so helpful in making travel plans. She recently booked us on a 14 night Cunard cruise to New England and Canada and was able to tell us what to see and how to get around at each port. We will not have to take many ship board excursions. She is always quick to respond and always so helpful in our decision making.

She is a true blessing!!

Planning a wedding is never easy. I had no idea where to start for a destination wedding I was ready to pull my hair out till I met the wonderful Susan Blume! She was beyond a pleasure to work with. Very professional , responsive and easy to work with, she has a very calming way about her that makes everything so much easier:) I never once felt I was getting the run around or felt on hold. She truly makes you feel like your the only bride she’s working with. She truly cares and wants to make you 100% happy . I recommend the world to work with Susan!! The best!!!

First time to Vegas but not the last!

Hi Sue, Our apologies for not getting back to you sooner; we have been busy trying to catch up with everything. However, we did have an amazing time, it was one we will remember forever! We are truly so grateful for all your help and patience with us through the booking process and we are looking forward to our next trip. Thanks you again! Amanda and Brandon

Paris birthday group blast!!

Sue, It was fantastic! The hotel apt was perfect for our group. The walking tour of Montmartre was fabulous, excellent tour guide. The private driver and guide at Giverny was perfect! I highly recommend it. This was the highlight of the trip for most of my group. And our private tour of the Louvre was great as well, and really helped navigate such a big space and provide historical context for things which made it much more interesting. We also went to St. Chappelle and an interactive Van Gogh exhibit on our own, both I recommend if you have others interested. The weather was unseasonably cold while we were there, and if rained at least once a day, but we had a great time. It hit the bucket list for sure! Thank you for all of your help planning! Alicia
