The travel to Budapest, Amsterdam and all the ports between on the Viking River Cruise was a wonderful trip. The special private guides in Budapest and Amsterdam made the trip especially seamless and a pleasurable trip. I highly recommend Susan to anyone planning a trip. She utilizes your time to the fullest and her planning and expertise make the trips wonderful!!

Susan was an integral part of our Mediterranean cruise planning process. It was a trip of a lifetime, and it would not have been so without her help! She took care of every detail, and gave excellent advice on our pre- and post- cruise stops. I would have been completely lost without her!

Susan has always provided stellar service and plans trips for my husband and I (including our honeymoon!) that always exceed our expectations. This is why we went to her for help planning our first anniversary trip to Antigua. She set us up at Hermitage Bay, and it was absolutely fantastic. Outstanding food, service, and overall ambiance. It was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks again, Susan - you're the best!

Susan Butler recently arranged a European trip for my husband, my 14-year old son and me. It included a soccer game, trips to World War II sites, old traditional European castles, soccer excursions, etc. In other words, it was an absolute nightmare to arrange. How in the world was someone to include all of these into a 2-week trip? I am not sure how she did it, but Susan Butler did it and did the job amazingly well. My family had a fantastic time. I am recommending Susan to all of my friends planning a vacation to Europe or anywhere. She is easy to work with and listens to you. She was wonderful in setting up our trip and communicated clearly and concisely everything that needed to be done. Her timeline was understandable, I understood when I needed to make my payments and nothing was left to chance. I will definitely be using Susan again in the future. Love, love, love her services! Cannot recommend her enough.

Booked Us A Great Honeymoon!

We first approached Susan with a broad idea of what we wanted for our honeymoon: beach, all-inclusive, relaxation! She sure delivered on that and then some! Susan's travel expertise helped us every step of the way. Based on our budget and what she wanted, Susan knew where she wanted to send us right away. As we researched the resort (Secrets Maroma Beach in Mexico), Susan answered any questions we had promptly. When we were ready to book, I can't believe how easy she made it for us. And finally when we got to the resort, we were blown away! We had an amazing trip made possible by Susan! We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to plan a vacation.

Susan never fails to exceed my expectations. Our 5th trip booked with her was no different. Her attention to detail and thoughtfulness allows us to enjoy our vacation with no worry. In my opinion she is an expert in the field and the reason I will continue to use and recommend using a travel advisor. The other two couples in my group described her as phenomenal. Could not be more pleased with this memory making trip of a lifetime. Cheers to Susan!

Amazing Experience in Croatia!


Reviewed on: 21 Sep 2016

Susan planned an amazing trip to Croatia for me, my husband and our 4 friends. We spent 2 nights in Dubrovnik then drove up to Split and spent a night there before embarking on a week long chartered yacht with the best skipper and hostess we could have asked for. We followed it up with one last night in Dubrovnik. The hotels Susan recommended were great but the best part by far was the week island hopping via out private yacht. There's no way we could have found such a unique experience on our own! Thanks Susan!

Goes above and beyond

By: Sullygirl

Reviewed on: 06 Jan 2017

Susan went above and beyond in assisting me with our first out of country family vacation. We had originally planned on going to a particular location and resort but after discussing it with Susan she felt there might be better options that were more aligned with our budget. She presented us with a variety of options and we ended up going with her recommendation. Since this was our first out of country family trip and our first all inclusive trip I was extremely particular on all the details. We had certain things that I just wasn't going to compromise on and Susan delivered. She helped us organize not only our trip but also coordinated a variety of activities so they were all planned in advance and ready to enjoy once we arrived. Our trip was a smashing success - I highly recommend Susan for any travel needs!

I was referred to Susan Butler by a friend who had used her services for an overseas trip.We had a trip planned to Isreal and wanted to incorporate a 5 day layover in Paris,and make a day trip to London...when I told Susan my idea I think she thought I was crazy. She helped orchestrate the most amazing family trip we have ever experienced. Every detail was exactly as she had told me. We communicated through email and text most of the time. I called her several times as well; and she was always available. She booked all of our transfers to and from the flat we rented. Also,the car service and guided tours for the days we were there were amazing! She truly knows what she is doing, and has amazing connections everywhere! Our family of 5 had the trip of a lifetime for those 3 weeks.We will forever remember all the memories we made, and cherish the 1500 pictures we took! I can honestly say that I not only found an amazing travel expert in Susan, but also made a new friend! THANKS

On our trip to Paris, Normandy and Provence France Susan arranged our trip with no detail left untouched. From the expert travel guides to the fabulous location of our hotel Susan made our trip without stress and a great experience. She even made plans and arrangements for an evening concert at St Chapelle Chapel one evening which was a special performance by talented musicians. Our trip included river cruises to Normandy and Provence France as well as personalized guided tours of Versailles, Foutainbleu, and Vaux Le Vicomte Palaces. The personalization of the private guides were especially helpful in maximizing our time giving us a historical perspective of the sites. I recommend the advice and expertise Susan offers since she gives you a trip of great memories from one that obviously loves to travel.

Susan planned an amazing honeymoon for me and my now wife. We had three separate locations in mind and she was able to pick hotels in each spot to suit our budget and schedule. Travel was a breeze with the transfers she had set up and we had the best times for our more touristy itinerary items. Would highly recommend people to work with her as it relieved so much stress from us with all the other planning leading up to the wedding. Thanks!

We worked with Susan to book and then reschedule our trip to Turks & Caicos. We were originally scheduled to go immediately following Hurricane Irma but the locals and staff were still trying to get their feet back under them. We wanted to be able to experience restaurants and local life off the resort so postponing was our only option. Susan worked with us to find a new date and made the transition of the reservations seamless. We had such a good experience that she is now helping us plan a trip to Greece.
