My Background

I was in my mid-teens, on adventure in Washington DC., when the travel bug first stung me. From that moment on, the opportunities that life offered my lust to experience the sights, sounds, cuisines and cultures of our world have taunted me.

Upon graduating college, a favorable combination of circumstances granted me a total cultural emersion as an au pair in Germany and student of German language in Basel, Switzerland. The European travel bug gave me a new injection of wanderlust.

During my university years I worked full-time in management roles for a major travel company; the exposure to corporate structure gradually evolved into a career directly overseeing 72 travel marketing representation offices around the world. Additional opportunities, as my career progressed, have afforded me growth in all facets of the travel industry.

The World has exposed it’s wonders to me from the simplest to the most complex travel on land, sea and air. From rainforests of Latin America to views from the Eiffel Tower plus the most awesome and humbling natural wonders. From tasty street food to the most elaborate dining establishments and cuisines the world has to offer. From opulent accommodations at the world’s finest resorts to trekking the Galapagos.

In 2002 I founded Critics Choice Vacations; moving forward ever since to share the marvels of travel with those who share my passion. To weave dreams and fantasies of exotic faraway places into reality. YOUR style of vacation.

Hi Susan, Let's just say we love working with you. You are the consummate professional! Gently reminding us of what we do next, keeping us on track. We always have a great trip when you are arranging it for us. You let us change things around as the trip evolves and doesn't seem to phase you a bit. You seem to always have our best interest at heart, never pressuring us to fit your agenda. Thanks so much for all your help in making our trips so memorable. Aloha, Florence & George Fujiwara

Just Amazing!

By: Beadgirl

Susan has planned two trips for us... An AMAWATERWAY river cruise out of Paris, and a Celebrity cruise/land tour from out of Vancouver and on to Denali National Park in Alaska. In both cases we never had to lift a finger, once we sat down on the first plane. Every connection went smoothly. The accommodations were exactly what we wanted (and upgraded in most cases). The Virtuoso additional benefits at the Fairmount Waterfront in Vancouver added at least $250 in food and drinks. Virtuoso upgraded our room there from city view to waterfront. I loved the morning we woke up to see our cruise ship docking just across the street, no more than 200 yards away. I will never book another trip on my own. Susan does an amazing job, including all the special details that make a trip really memorable.

Susan did a GREAT job. Everything was planned perfectly and the tour guides were the best. She even sent reminders to check in for flights and handled a change on the tour guide when we contacted her. I know our trip would not have gone as well if we had not used Susan as our travel agent. Her knowledge of the areas we were visiting and suggestions of things to do and where to eat were so helpful. Her relationship with one of the hotel managers even helped get us a last minute upgrade and personal service for our stay.

Susan Boehnstedt has been assisting my wife and I on several VERY memorable trips, from Rome to Jerusalem... from Norway to Denmark and now to New England and Canada. Susan has many excellent ideas to help us see the things we may not ordinarily see and helping to arrange transfers at places that we have no familiarity. She makes it easier to see the things we will never ever forget and gets the deals that help us save, so we can do it all again. Thank you Susan and excellent work! Paul

A perfect, wonderful travel agent!

Susan Boehnstedt, Virtuoso Travel Agent Extraordinaire, has orchestrated 3 major trips for us: a river cruise with a wine theme in France, a cruise/land tour of Alaska, and a fantastic road trip through Colorado, Wyoming and Montana. Susan always finds excellent flights (we only go first class when flying outside North America), gorgeous hotels (gracious, often luxurious, excellent locations... but always with friendly and interesting staff), and lots of information about where we are traveling. We love all the "extras" she is able to supply through her Virtuoso connections. Susan has so much personal experience of travel that she knows the realities. Our son and daughter-in-law, both young professionals with little time to travel, rely on her skills as well, currently looking forward to a photography- and educational-themed joirney to the Galapagos this fall. Susan Boehnstedt has become a good friend, and we plan to use her as our sole travel agent from now on, for all our travel.

Susan was the most responsive, caring travel agent or service related person I have ever worked with. I could tell that she wanted us to have a great time on our trip and was as excited about it as we were. She contacted me during the trip to see how things were going. When we had a problem with our flight being canceled, she assisted us until it was fixed. She followed up all discussions with follow up emails and was incredibly detail oriented.

We decided three weeks before our trip to Italy and France that we needed help setting up transportation along the way. We got in touch with Susan and sent our itinerary to her and within a few short days if it was all figured out. We hit 4 destinations on our ten-day trip. She helped us by telling us that we were backtracking at one point of the trip. Could not have done this without her. She set up trains and a rental car from two of the spots. When we arrived in Europe all of the bookings went very smoothly and were set up right near our hotels. I recommend everybody now to go to Susan for any traveling help. She is very knowledgeable and has been to Europe herself. I give her five stars. Thanks again Susan!

WAY Beyond the Best!

By: Nan and Tom

Reviewed on: 16 Jan 2016

After doing several significant trips created by Susan, we now simply tell her where we want to go, what we want to see, and what our budget is. The result, especially as she continues to learn more about our likes (and dreams), is an entire package, from our front door to our return. We end up with a well-organized and very complete document package that covers every step of the journey... transits, hotels, tickets, complete descriptions of what is (and is NOT) included, as well as many suggestions of things to do and see while on the trip. Susan's own personal experiences add a great deal to our comfort level in having her prepare our entire itineraries. She has truly "Been there, done that." Susan also takes care of the travel planning for our kids, busy young professionals. We have had some great excursions with them and are currently planning several more. About the only services Susan does not provide are packing and the inevitable after-trip laundry. Beyond The Best!

Susan was always one step ahead as far as keeping us up to date with her clear and concise communication. Our trip was a long time in the making but she always checked in with us at critical times for permissions and payments so there was never a misstep. Our travel documents and materials were well organized and presented in person at mutually agreeable times. She went through all of the materials prepared by the travel company and highlighted each with pertinent information needed along the way. There was never any doubt as to when to do what. If we ran into problems during the trip, which we did not, she made it clear that she and her company were always available to solve them.

Susan did a fantastic job for us from beginning to end. In the initial planning stages her experience and expertise were both evident. Both her love of travel and her love of people makes her the perfect vacation planner. She really went above and beyond for us. She had champagne waiting in our room to help us celebrate our anniversary. She put us in THE best room on the property. She listened to what I wanted and made it her business to know enough about me to tailor the experience to my liking. Everything went very smoothly. I knew that was because Susan had already dotted every "I" and crossed every "T" for us. Many times along the journey either one of us or someone else would comment about how nice it was that we used a travel agent rather than booking everything ourselves. Not all travel agents are created equal and frankly Susan is heads and shoulders above the rest - at least that is how we feel after this trip. The ease and convenience of this trip made us want to take more.

She has arranged European trips for us that are literally "Door to door" as well as making all the arrangements for a Virtuoso stay in a city we drove to. When medical problems caused us to miss a very special vacation in British Columbia, Susan went to bat for us; result: the travel insurance company paid the claim!

Susan Boehnstedt's help with a multiple-stop Vancouver to Hawaii bucket-list trip

By: Paul-ASU

Reviewed on: 09 Oct 2017

Susan Boehnstedt has helped me and my family with many vacations over the years. She is always kind, has excellent suggestions, helped me with issues and questions with the cruise line and airlines, given the hurricane issues we were going through in Florida. Susan knew specific places to visit in Vancouver, for us to visit prior to boarding the Celebrity Solstice, sailing to Hawaii. Hawaii was fantastic too. My first time there. Her ideas for Vancouver, were perfect and we saw many beautiful places, all within our budget. Hawaii was fantastic with her ideas. After years of working with Susan, on our vacations from the Caribbean to Rome, I will continue to use and recommend Susan Boehnstedt. I have just made initial reservations for a future trip to New Zealand where Susan has just visited and I look forward to her suggestions and help. Thank you Susan.

Before I begin to extol the many virtues of Susan Boehnstedt, our amazing Virtuoso travel agent, I have to say she completely outdid herself on our latest trip, to Sonora Island Resort in British Columbia. It was a long-awaited vacation with two family members, also Susan’s long time clients. From our arrival at the airport to stepping off our private float plane onto Sonora Island, travel flowed seamlessly. She took care of every detail, including selecting the most wonderful suite for us all to share, overlooking the sea lions and seals. Susan knew all the questions to ask the resort owner, a personal acquaintance, to be sure we were going to have a fantastic time. We are getting ready to call her and request the same trip next year! Susan Boehnstedt has been our extraordinary travel agent for several years. She has repeatedly proven to us that we can travel anywhere in the world, in any style, and at a price we can afford.

Susan is extremely helpful in assisting with our travel plans. Even though we are very comfortable in Europe, it is great to know she has our backs as we move around, often on our own. Susan knows the ins-and-outs of European travel, and her experiences are helpful as we make our plans, and then get on the plane. Her attention to detail makes our experience as hassle-free as it can be. She remembers birthdays and other occasions, and she often arranges for special surprises and unexpected perks. Susan always checks in with us along the way, and she is available day and night to help with any hiccups we may experience.

She is much more than a travel agent--she is a friend who travels virtually with us and we are grateful.

Susan helped us arrange an Alaskan cruise, our graduation gift to our HS graduate grandson. We had cruised to Alaska previously, making our own arrangements, but we wanted this trip to be memorable and we had some special requirements because of a wheelchair-using guest. She was very focused on making sure we anticipated every need, and this attention to detail can absolutely make or break a vacation for a special-needs guest. We could not have achieved the stellar travel results we enjoyed without Susan! She provided us several options of cruise ships, and we finally decided on a Princess cruise booking a beautiful ADA-compliant suite. She encouraged us to purchase travel insurance (we did!), and she helped us to explore our options for renting a wheelchair for the duration of the trip (we didn't, we brought our own travel WC). Her extensive travel experience, and especially dealing with many special-needs travelers over the years, made this a trip we will never forget!
