My Background

I've led somewhat of a nomadic life, fueled by a restless desire to experience the unknown. As a result, I've never lived in any place for longer than two years. Although I was born in Beijing, I spent my formative years in New Orleans, where the melting pot of French and Spanish cultures taught me a love for languages and good food.

Seizing every opportunity possible to travel, I've visited six continents, and spent summers living in Paris, Berlin, and Shanghai, as well as a year-long stint in Bologna, Italy. My favorite part of each trip is discovering the best local restaurants to add to my continuously growing list.

If my time spent traveling has taught me anything, it's that the littlest details can make or break a trip. This is why I take meticulous care of every trip from beginning to end, to make sure every aspect of the trip is perfectly tailored to my clients' needs. I can't wait to begin working with you!

Specializing in luxury travel, Suzy was named to Travel Agent Magazine's top 30 Under 30 Travel Agents for 2014. She is also a Tourism Australia certified Aussie Specialist Travel Agent.

Super Helpful and Fun!

By: Shakti

Susie has helped me with several trips now. Some for pleasure and some for business. She is professional and efficient. She works with me on the business trips closely because plans change frequently. It never seems to be a problem for her. I really enjoy collaborating with her on the vacations. She always listens to my desires and needs and then gives great suggestions based upon what I indicated. It's super fun to collaborate with her. She is my "go-to" when it comes to travel.

2 days before our planned vacation, our airline decided to cancel our flight, throwing all of our plans into disarray. suzy and her team worked hard and were in constant contact with me to re-plan the entire vacation. this incident made the value of working with Suzy extremely obvious, and I look forward to planning future vacations with her!

Suzy Xiu is fantastic. I have used her for several trips and she always does a magnificent job. She recommends great places to stay and great restaurants. If you need airport transfers, she sets those up too and she uses wonderful car services with expert and courteous drivers. I am a nervous traveller. Suzy listens to my fears and answers all questions fully so I can relax and enjoy my trip. She is very patient. She takes care of everything for me. I will use Suzy for every trip I take, no matter how large or small. She is the best.

Amazing Service, Reccomendations, and Reliability

By: Asia Trip

Suzy planned the perfect honeymoon by giving us recommendations and challenging us to ensure we had a trip that exceeded our expectations. Her relationships with direct hotel staff added to our comfort and experience as the hotels upgraded and took exceptional care with us at every stop. When an issue arose, Suzy was accessible late at night US time to solve it without hesitation. We are beyond satisfied and highly reccomend that you work with Suzy for an Asia or other trip.

Suzy Xiu is a rock star travel advisor -- she is responsive, prompt, knowledgeable, and willing to make suggestions based on carefully listening to what we wanted. Even when I was being indecisive about arrangements, Suzy stuck with me and helped me sort out our travel preferences. She knows her stuff and is great fun to work with. You really couldn't find a better person to help plan a complex, multi-step trip. (We traveled through NYC, Egypt, and Amsterdam, and Suzy made the arrangements a piece of cake.) Plus, of course, SmartFlyer provides such GREAT VALUE to travelers -- great rates at the best places, with lots of amenities thrown in to make travel even more enjoyable. We are hooked on using SmartFlyer -- the best travel company we've every heard of, and one we recommend to ALL of our discerning traveling friends. Thanks, Suzy!
