Luxury Travel and Group Travel Specialist

Hi, I’m Susie. I LOVE to travel. I grew up in the Southeast – Georgia to be specific. My family traveled a lot and I caught the wanderlust bug early on. I have traveled all over the United States, 37 states so far, developing plans for more domestic travel, and internationally as well including Canada, Belize, Costa Rica, Bahamas, Eleuthera, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, and the British Virgin Islands.

 I enjoyed traveling so much that I chose that path after college working in luxury hotel management for the Nestle company Stouffer’s Hotel Chain now Renaissance Hotels, American Express Business Travel focusing on international and domestic business accounts and United Airlines as an international agent in domestic and premier services customer service. My specialty is in providing fantastic, upscale, authentic, travel experiences for discerning clients. I can create a custom, luxurious journey for you anywhere in the world. However, I love to create custom trips to the Lowcountry of South Carolina.

I offer planned group getaways with a slower more intentional approach to exploring. Think local inns, area history, kayaking on the inlets, and cocktails at sunset overlooking the marsh. As the mother of three active boys raised in Colorado, I know the High Country too. I can develop a package for your family that showcases the best of spring skiing along with non-snow activities for your family so you can relax. Colorado is amazing in the summer too with hiking, biking, dude ranches, and more. Whether it is a girl’s trips, private trip, or multigenerational travel, I can develop a trip full of memories for you. Having over 19 years of work experience and life experience in travel, I help individuals, groups, and small businesses plan and book travel. Let me take the worry and stress out of your next adventure. I will research as many options as we need until we find the perfect fit for your travels!

Travel agent with southern charm

Reviewed By Elizabeth - Denver,United States | Traveled to South Carolina ~ USA
Susie is an expert in planning and organizing small group getaways with luxurious touches. Her specialty is attention to detail. My sister and I recently joined her on a lowcountry girls' getaway. She is from the area and knows it well. She planned great, private, customized excursions. We enjoyed the latest local cuisine. And we had enough downtime to relax. She has traveled internationally as well. I particularly want to join her in Iceland and the Bahamas.

Thank you so much Elizabeth! I receive so much joy when I am able to help my clients enjoy themselves fully on a getaway or long international vacation! I look forward to being able to lead our group to ICELAND and then go warm up later in the year in the Bahamas! Yours, Susie McMahon

Best family reunion

Reviewed By Leslie - La Grange , Texas | Traveled to South Carolina ~ USA
Excellent. Susie was the perfect travel consultant for our family. This was a trip to Fripp Island in South Carolina for a family reunion. Susie obtained lodging for the entire family, airport transfers , golf carts to be used on the island and places to get food durning our stay. Susie made arrangements so that the family could experience the sights and sounds of the Beaufort SC area. We were able to spend the days on the beach, a afternoon on a tour boat of Fripp Island, golf game, even have a competitive fishing tournament between the family. Plus if you just wanted to relax at the house you could do that also. Susie set up a dinner on the island for our family and the last night a dinner at a restaurant in Beaufort. We had no worries or concerns with Susie taking care of everything.

Susan McMahon responded:
Leslie, I am so glad you enjoyed your time on Fripp Island and in Beaufort, SC. The Lowcountry is a magical place. I hope I can help plan your future getaways or luxuriious journeys! Yours, Susie McMahon

A Wonderful Wellness Weekend!

Reviewed By Alex J. - NYC | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Susie helped to facilitate a wonderful women’s retreat in Mexico, with just the right balance of group experiences and leisure time. Susie selected a tranquil resort which allowed us to relax, unwind and recharge. She planned a welcome cocktail hour, a group luncheon, and a farewell dinner which provided our intimate group a chance to get to know a little more about one another and share our experiences. In between these planned activities, she encouraged us to explore the property, book a spa appointment, partake in any of the on-site wellness programs, or just enjoy the amazing pools and oceanfront. The structure of the retreat allowed plenty of free time to wind down and reflect.

Worry Free Travel

Reviewed By Deb - Oak Lawn, Illinois | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I have worked with Susie for arranging 2 trips. . One was a trip I had taken to the resort Palmaïa located in Playa del Carmen, Mexico in November with her and a group of women. The trip was fantastic! Susie made it extra special by setting up private events for our group such as welcome cocktail party, meditation, lunch, and dinner. Susie took care of keeping us informed of all aspects of the trip from the first moment of booking to what to expect on arrival, while at the resort, to our departure. She was always available for questions we may have had. The 2nd trip is for a trip to Iceland in February 2022. Once again she went above and beyond to make sure our booking went smoothly and we are aware of all the changes occurring due to Covid. Susie is a fantastic travel agent and I will definitely use her services for all my future travel!

Winter Spa Getaway, Extraodinary!

Reviewed By Karen - Denver, CO | Traveled to Colorado ~ USA
I am making plans to reserve my spot for next year's Winter Spa Getaway at Devil's Thumb Resort, in Tabernash, Colorado. Susie provided an itinerary for the weekend's activities, which included everything from snowshoeing, horseback riding, deep tissue massage, yoga, private hot tub and dinner reservations. The employees and visitors all abided by COVID protocols and I felt that I was able to relax and be protected from the virus. The accommodations were outstanding. Susie was easy to communicate with and provided attention to all of the details to make the weekend memorable. Susie exudes a love of travel, and wants you to love your experiences while traveling during a pandemic. It was a mother/daughter trip with experiences that will always be remembered!

Karen, I am thrilled that you enjoyed our Winter Spa Trip with your daughter! I look forward to helping you plan future journeys with family, friends or solo travel! Thanks again for your support!
