My Background

As the owner of Landings Travel and a Certified Travel Consultant I have learned that my most valuable asset is the expertise and continual education I bring to my clients’ experiences. I believe in serving all my clients exactly the way I would like to be served. The internet offers many travel inspirations, but when it comes to the details of planning a trip, there is not substitute for the expertise and advocacy of a Certified Travel Professional.

My Favorite Places

My husband and I have traveled to 50 countries on five continents, and Africa stands out as one of my favorite destinations. It’s like a fairy tale flying into the safari camps – I am always itching to go back. We are avid cruisers and love the high-end lines – Crystal, Seabourn, Silversea. We also enjoy river cruising and love how they give you easy access to smaller towns and cities.

My Specialties

I loved planning a recent multigenerational trip for a mom, grandmother, and granddaughter. They attended Garter Day and saw the royal family – and even had tea with the Queen’s cousin! I’m very knowledgeable about cruising and have been planning cruises for 33 years. I’m an Elite Cruise Counselor with CLIA, as well as a Southern Europe destination specialist with the Travel Institute.

OUr Christmas trip to Sedona last year was wonderful, thanks to Kathleen arranging reservations at the wonderful Enchantment resort. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in the area. Service was low-key but exemplary, and I appreciated the Virtuoso extras we received . I appreciate that Kathleen exhibits the same care and professionalism whether we are booking back-to back European cruises, as we did two years ago, or simply a night or two at a resort hotel

Kathleen and John are the BEST ! When every I call, for what every we need, they are always right there. If we are looking or need for something special, they always get back if they don't have that answer. I have and will recommend the Sutter's to anyone that travel. Again, the BEST.

Kathleen is very competent and knows her way around a great many ships, ports and travel destinations. She keeps her clientele by being attentive to the needs and preferences of her clients, and by being personable and pleasant to work with. Most importantly she keeps up with all the changes in the many things that travelers need to know.

Crystal never disappoints. The new CEO, Edie Bornstein, was aboard and made herself available to everyone, taking note of all comments. I'm satisfied she is committed to exceeding the high standards of Crystal.

I sent this review before, apparently to the wrong email address.. so I am sending it again. Kathleen's arrangements for our world cruise this spring were excellent and everything ran smoothly, as usual.

Fall glory on Seabourn

By: charlie51

Reviewed on: 27 Oct 2015

As always, Kathleen made trip planning effortless. Thanks to her, we got a room upgrade, hotel credit and free breakfasts at the Ritz Carlton Montreal. She had spoken highly of Seabourn, and while I was a bit worried it might be too formal and stuffy for me, her instincts were correct. It was elegant, yes, but the mood was relaxed and comfortable and we met great people. The limo service she selected for our pickup at the Fort Lauderdale terminal was also first-rate, and we are planning to use them again for airport needs.

Travel Scotland via rail

By: Tpalynne

Reviewed on: 20 Sep 2016

The vacation of my dreams. The Balmoral Hotel is beautiful, we were offered tea in the Palm Court. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Our hotel room looked out over a castle. Once we boarded the Bolmond Royal Scotsman we were treated like royalty. Food was subpurb and the bar car had high tea. A very knowledgeable bar staff were available for advise on the many different beverages available. We met there after our dinners for entertainment. We enjoyed the tours to various manor homes and castles, on one tour we were able to feed the deer that were being raised for venison and were given a history of the estate. The castle tours were filled with historical information. The beauty of Scotland that we were privileged to view was more than we ever expected. I would recommend this adventure to anyone looking for a great experience.

It is always a pleasure to work with Kathleen and Jon Sutter. Both are great about getting back to me quickly with answers to questions, and sorting through various options. She was particularly helpful on the Cuba cruise I just took, as it was a bit confusing to figure out how much we would be allowed to do on our own while in Cuba.

European trip

By: Hking

Reviewed on: 11 Jul 2018

This was a last minute trip, and Kathleen was great about quickly securing a cabin on the the Windstar and helping me negotiate the complicated procedure of finding eligible frequent-flier flights to and from europe. On the second half of the trip, to Switzerland, she used her Virtuoso connections, to get me great rooms at the Mont Cervin in Zermatt and the Baur au Lac in Zurich..both fantastic properties. She even remembered my birthday with welcome champagne and chocolate in Zermatt.
