My Background

As a former magazine editor (Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, SPA, Modern Luxury) and travel writer, I have spent 20 years exploring the world, focused on luxury and romance travel. I put my extensive knowledge and contacts by planning exceptional trips for couples, families and small groups. My passion is "special-occasion" travel -- honeymoons, but also destination weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, family gatherings and bucket-list adventures that mark life's most important milestones. I love those trips that deserve special attention to detail, which is what I bring to my clients.

The Honeymoonist went above and beyond

By: Scotland, Norway ... you name it

Reviewed on: 20 Aug 2014

My husband and I were stumped as to where to head this summer. We wanted different types of vacations in different types of locales. Susan Moynihan from The Honeymoonist/Largay listened carefully, then came up with several spot-on ideas, each detailed in terms of what we'd do and why it matched what we were seeking. Once we picked a destination, she worked like mad checking itineraries, prices and hotels with different wholesalers until she came up with a plan that was right for our wants and budget. Essentially, she did every single bit of the work, then sent me ideas of what to do in each location. Our trip was fairly basic, at our request, but Susan has traveled all over the world and has written about honeymoons for consumer magazines for years, so I'd also recommend having her plan special-occasion travel. She has been all over the globe and has experienced first-hand the super-special offerings that newlyweds and big-budget travelers seek out. Knowledgeable & thorough.

Susan picked the perfect spot

Susan picked the perfect location for me when I was traveling to a wedding in St Martin. I was traveling alone and I told her I wanted a great resort, on the beach where I could relax and also feel safe (since I was traveling alone to this trip). I gave her an idea of a budget and she came back right away with this amazing recommendation. The hotel was fantastic. She not only secured a free breakfast every day for me but also got me an upgrade into a beautiful suite AND she arranged for dinner and champagne to be delivered to my room (with no bill from the hotel) as I was traveling in late at night. The nice dinner was waiting for me when I arrived. Susan did a fantastic job of listening to what I wanted for my trip and making sure it matched perfectly. I will be using her for ALL of our travel plans!

Our trip was amazing. Susan Moynihan knew exactly what we wanted and came through with flying colors. The hotel was superb in every way. The room, view and service were impeccable. We were impressed from start to finish. Susan left no rock unturned and assisted us with every detail on and off the property. She misses nothing! We will use her no doubt on our next adventure and highly recommend she and the property to all who prefer things a step above. Perfection!

My husband and I cannot rave enough about Susan and the ease with which she planned our honeymoon for us. We had never heard of a "honeymoonist" before, so we were thrilled to let her take the reigns, especially when we were already so busy with wedding planning. We found her extremely resourceful, efficient, and reliable. She always got back to us right away if we had a question. She obviously is a world traveler and we felt she "got" our taste and what we were looking for after a short phone conversation. The honeymoon was exactly what we would have planned on our own, however with a lot less headache and likely for much less cost. We hope to work Susan again on many, many trips to come.

Best trip ever!

This was honestly the best trip my husband and I have ever been on! I have been to Rome before, but that trip paled in comparison to this experience. The company was absolutely fabulous - everything was so well organized, every driver was on time, easy to find, spoke English, was kind, professional, and so helpful. We had the same tour guide for all our day trips, and she was just incredible! So smart, resourceful, explained things so well, so passionate about Roman history, she had answers to every question we asked! I cannot say enough good things about her, she brought everything about ancient Rome to life for us! As usual, Susan Moynihan was absolute perfection in how she planned everything for us. The hotel was just a dream, the day to day activities were just perfect, everything was top notch. All her instructions were crystal clear, everything went so smoothly without even one mishap! Only bad thing - I don't think we'll ever be able to plan a trip without her now!

My trip was flawless, thanks to Susan! Having never been to Europe, I was very nervous and needed to rely on her experience & expertise. I was impressed at every turn! Susan understood my desire to see & do as much as I could in the 2 weeks that I was traveling and planned everything at the perfect pace. Her recommendations and connections made this a trip of a lifetime!! I can't wait to return and would use Susan in a heartbeat. I will highly recommend her services to my clients, family and friends.

Ski Vacation

She is amazingly thorough and covers every little detail so you don't have to. She continually matches us with the vacation of our dreams and ensures that everyone on the trip will have a good time no matter the age differences or differences in interests. She is always available when you need her, even for the most abstract of requests. I could not recommend her more. She is amazing.

Perfection in India

Susan organized our days in Mumbai and booked us at the Taj Palace Mumbai. We were so pleased with her recommendation and our stay. We felt and were treated like VIPs from the moment we walked in. We were upgraded, received the nicest room and also received amenities during our stay! We could not have been happier with the service with Susan and also our stay! HIGHLY recommend working with her and this hotel if you are traveling to Mumbai/Bombay!

Outstanding service from a very insightful agent

From my first conversation with Susan I knew I was in good hands...she was smart, delightful, and intuitive. I transferred my reservation from the cruise lines to Susan because I wanted extra attention and advice to make this cruise really special for my wife and I. Susan had terrific ideas and recommendations on the more private beaches in Bermuda, dining venues, and private tours just for us. We were in a suite onboard Celebrity and she gave us very good advice about enjoying Luminae, and which specialty dining might be worthy of consideration. Susan was very organized and timely in getting me information and always having a backup assistant (Jane) available if I had a question before or during the cruise. I was extremely pleased with the service I received from Susan, Vurtuoso, and Largay. Everything she told me was spot on. I chose her to handle my next cruise booking on Azamara next year as well.

Winter Wonderland in Jackson

Susan was wonderful to work with! She helped plan a perfect Winter Wonderland vacation for our family of four to Jackson, WY after Christmas this year. Listening and understanding what we were looking for out of this trip was her strong point. She found lodging and activities for us that balanced our desire to enjoy the gorgeous Jackson outdoors, but also rest and recharge!
