My Background

Sarah W Lee is based out of NYC but when you ask her friends where she lives, their response is “on an airplane”. In a recent three month span, she flew 89,083 miles, which is going around the equator 3.6 times. She does this because her passions are exploring the planet (from the comfort of Egyptian cotton sheets), finding the best food the world has to offer, and sharing it with you.

Her favorite destinations are still skewed towards Asia since she was based out of Hong Kong for almost seven years working in the finance world. In her mind, some of the best beaches in the world are in the Maldives and the best powder in the world is in Niseko, Japan. She is also a fan of any place with great food and has flipped her own itinerary upside down just to make the last lunch at El Bulli. If you’re a food fanatic, she has you covered – from securing tables at Michelin-starred restaurants to giving directions to secret hole-in-walls that only locals know about.

Above and Beyond


Reviewed on: 10 Aug 2014

Sarah went Above and beyond Expectations to make our stay great. From walking into the upgraded room, which was bigger Han my apartment, and seeing the rose petals and swan shaped towels, to feeling like VIP at breakfast when the Straits lounge sent champagne to us at the main buffet, and everyone looking at you when they hear"POP" . It was a most memorable stay in fact I let Sarah know it was a quasi Honeymoon. My wife and I have been together 3 years and married just this last year but never have been on a vacation alone. So this was our first one and it's going to be hard to top the service. Sarah had told the hotel this apparently and they sent a bottle of wine and strawberries to the room complimentary with a note telling us to enjoy our honeymoon. How Awesome. Everything was more than perfect and more than we imagined. Thank you so much

Our trip to the west coast was simply perfect and exceeded all expectations thanks to Sarah and her travel expertise. She helped us to plan the perfect 30th wedding celebration by coordinating all aspects of our trip including hotel upgrades, car reservations, restaurants recommendations and day time activities. She went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our trip was a special first class experience even stepping in to rearrange some of our travel/hotel plans mid-trip without skipping a beat AND securing a refund for us on some of those pesky "non- refundable" hotel room deposits. Even though it was a very busy time for her she was there for us all the way to ensure all travel went off without a glitch. A true professional!! If your not using Sarah for your travel plans you're missing out on taking your trip to premium status!!

Sarah was amazing with our trip to Barbados, picking out a hotel that fit our needs perfectly and hooking us up with their tourism vouchers. She helped us with all the details, like making sure we were all set with airport transfers and how to get around the island. We had an amazing time, and Sarah's experience and guidance was most appreciated. Thank you, Sarah!!!

Sarah planned a fabulous trip to Tuscany for my husband and I. It was everything we could have asked for and so much more. It was truly a memorable experience in no way I could have planned on my own by reading TripAdvisor reviews. I often enjoyed planning my own trips in the past, but Sarah made everything super easy, really listened to figure out what we liked, and worked within our budget and planned the perfect trip. Sarah made sure we were well taken care of from the minute we landed to the minute we left. Once you've experienced a "travelee" trip there is no other way to travel. We are super excited that Sarah is planning our next trip to Hawaii. Wholeheartedly recommend!

super efficient and a always gets it right!

My husband and I found out very last minute that we had the time to take a trip to South America. I had no idea where to start, and so I reached out to Sarah. She was absolutely amazing and incredibly professional. Not only did she come up with two different itineraries for us, she also facilitated everything, took great care to match our itinerary to our lifestyle and preferences, and came in under budget. And, she did all this with only a few weeks notice before we took off. She even took care to let our guides all know about my gluten sensitivity (I had only mentioned it to her once, in passing, but when we arrived everyone made sure to give me the gluten free food options). I can't say enough good things about Sarah. We had the time of our lives, and I cannot wait until I can work with Sarah to plan our next vacation!

I've worked with Sarah a few times now and continue to be incredibly impressed. She is so thoughtful with her suggestions, and really listened to our thoughts and goals. This last trip she planned for us was the perfect mix of relaxation and exploration, and the hotel was unique and comfortable with amazing service and somehow no stuffiness. The best part about working with Sarah, though, is that she makes everything SO easy. You set the vision and she gets it done. I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to planning trips myself!

Sarah was so helpful for booking our wedding stay in SF, and our honeymoon. There was a huge conference that week and so many of the hotels were sold out. Sarah was able to find us a beautiful room at The Ritz, and some extra bonuses that made our stay very special. She also helped us add our little dog to our stay last minute when we couldn't find a sitter for her. For our honeymoon, she planned the best vacation we've ever taken. We knew we wanted to stay in the Mexican Riviera, but had no idea where to stay or what to do while we were there. She found us the cutest, most romantic boutique hotel in Tulum, and got us an awesome deal. She planned fun excursions for us to explore the area, and gave us tons of ideas of what to do on our free days if we felt like being adventurous. She was available to answer questions the whole time we were on our trip, and even took care of things when I forgot my sweater at our hotel in Cancun. She'll be planning all our trips from now on!

Sarah knocked it out of the park once again. I used to book online - no 'travel agents' traveled the way that I did so I would just go and find what I needed and book it.

My trip to France and Italy was planned by Sarah Lee and the results were outstanding from beginning to end. First, Sarah paid attention to my interests and wants for the trip and tailored the experience to fit my desires. I wanted a trip heavy on historical and archeological interests and short on shopping. She planned an agenda that fit my interests with many suggestions on the variety of tours and sights to see. These suggestions were nicely tailored to my style of touring, including avoiding circumstances that would negatively impact my enjoyment of the experience. Second, I was very pleased with the guides she chose and the accommodations. The guides were knowledgeable, flexible, and enthusiastic about their jobs and the cities I visited. I could not have been happier with their service, professionalism and dependability. My drivers were professional and showed up on time. The accommodations were a revelation!

Sarah was a great partner to have to help plan this trip. She was pretty much always accessible, except for one or two times when she was in route during her travels (which is understandable).

Also it was great to have the mobile Umapped application that had my whole trip including documents (train tickets) on my phone for easy access which Sarah set up.

So sad to be back. My family had such a great time on our trip. Sarah was amazing planning and working with us! We truly loved our vacation. It was a great mix of relaxation, tours, activities, and places. We loved every stop and every island. Sarah understood what was important to my family as whole, and to each person individually. She helped arrange awesome group activities; we ate at some great restaurants, loved the swimming and enjoyed the touring and found little things for each personality to enjoy along the way (napping, photography, history, action, etc). The favorite activities were: Swimming in the coves that Ivan found as we went from island to island, the bike tour/time in Mljet, a countryside dinner in Vis, lounging at villa dubrovnik, and exploring the cities of vis, hvar, split and lastovo. Also, it was great to customize the trip as we saw fit along the way to incorporate our skippers suggestions. WE LOVED IT! I will definitely use Sarah again going forward.

Sarah did a great job of putting together a complex itinerary for us in Southeast Asia, including airport transfers, expedited visa processing, tour guides and hotel accommodations. She had it all handled so thoroughly that I actually got nervous -- since I usually do everything myself, I was expecting to have to deal with a lot of paperwork. When I expressed my worry, she reassured me that everything was taken care of, and we just had to "show up." She was right! Everything went without a hitch. My travel companion and I were super impressed with how well we were treated and how easy everything was.

Sarah helped me book a bunch of rooms for corporate travel, and was flexible with changing names, dates, adding loyalty program numbers, with such great spirit and cheer. She helped me cancel a room reservation without penalty, even though the cancellation date was past. So grateful to her for all her help in making my work easier!

The trip of a lifetime!

Having never traveled to Central America, my husband and I put our complete faith in Sarah to plan our honeymoon... and it was the best decision we could have ever made! After a phone call and exchanging a few emails regarding our ideal trip she constructed an 11 day Costa Rican excursion involving everything we had asked for (a jungle experience, fishing trips, surfing, beaches to relax at and environments to explore in). What she came up with was better than we ever expected - the trip was flawless! Sarah was reachable during our whole trip which gave us some peace of mind knowing we had someone to lean on if necessary. We couldn't recommend Sarah enough!

Sarah planned the most amazing trip to Greece for me! She knows exactly what I want and tailors trips perfectly to meet my expectations. More than that, she is a life-saver if anything comes up last minute, helping me move around flights to be with my family. I flew into Athens and then connected to Santorini where I was welcomed by the Grace Hotel with an incredible bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolates. I immediately set to relaxing and looking through the carefully planned itinerary Sarah sent along with suggestions for day trips. I balanced poolside with some fun excursions and had the most wonderful experience. As a benefit of being Sarah's client, I was given a lovely complimentary meal at the hotel as well. After Santorini it was to beautiful Mykonos. Sarah planned everything perfectly, taking the burden off of me to arrange for transports, flights, hotels, meals, etc. I will always use Sarah for my personal travel!

We were planning to celebrate our 20th anniversary in a luxury hotel in Tokyo. I had stayed at Virtuoso Hotels before so I decided to check their web site to see if there are any advisors that can help me to make the decision. There, I came across Sarah Lee who has 100% good reviews on the web site. When I called her, I was merely trying to get a quote for a night’s stay. Sarah was very helpful and informative and gave me great recommendations based on my needs. Frankly, in the luxury travel market, I am just a customer asking for a little quote. I was very surprised by the services and the attentiveness she gave me. In this digital era, anyone can get a good price by using internet search. What makes agents stand out is their great service and follow-up. Most importantly is that they listen to what a client want and not what they want to sell. Sarah was able to give me the service that I need (plus the upgrades/perks at the hotel). I will recommend her to my friends down the road.

Australia Honeymoon

By: Australia Honeymoon

Reviewed on: 16 Feb 2018

The trip that was planned was great. Here are my gripes: 1. We were never told we needed to get a VISA and almost missed our flight. Luckily, it's super easy to get one. 2. Part of our trip got affected by a Cyclone off the coast of Australia. Sara Lee was great about finding a new place but refused to rebook our flights. Keep in mind this was the day before our wedding and we had to spend 2 hours on the phone rebooking things. 3. She had her idea of a good trip and in some ways, this was her trip. She was rigid about what she wanted us to do and had very strong opinions. The trip was planned well and we had an amazing time. But, those issues above is why we will never use her again.

As always, Sarah delivered with an excellent trip and beautiful hotel stays. Some of the properties she recommended I had never heard of and they turned out to be my favorites of the trip! Like The Farmhouse Inn in Napa and L'Horizon Resort and Spa in Palm Springs. Sarah is always available to answer questions or follow-up with issues during the trip and she's great with short-fuse requests (which seem to be my thing lately).

Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand Honeymoon

Great! Sarah helped plan our honeymoon in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. We started almost 11 months ahead of time letting her know we wanted to book our own international flights with points, and she was able to put together a general itinerary so we could coordinate which airports to fly (into and out of) internationally. She was able to help us plan each location by "experience" after we let her know what we were specifically looking for (beaches, temples, elephants, and natural beauty). Each location was so unique. All tours, pick ups, and transfers went smoothly in Asia and almost all hotels had additional perks that we probably would not have been able to get without her help in booking the hotel. I would highly recommend her if looking for a luxury vacation.
