My Background

Having done a bit of travel as a daughter of an airline employee, I had the bug to further my adventures from a very early age. My career in the travel industry began in 1997 when I joined All World Travel. As a travel specialist I have the experience necessary to properly guide you in planning distinctive and unique experiences. Helping you to realize your dream vacation is my goal.

My travels have taken me around the world from places as near as Mexico, Hawaii, Canada and the Caribbean to much more exotic destinations as Thailand, Hong Kong, and French Polynesia, by both land and sea. I love the antiquity and charm of Europe and with relatives who live in Germany, I have a good excuse to visit there often. I have explored England, France,Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Greece Netherlands, Belgium, and Turkey. I have zip-lined through the rain forest, rode an elephant through the jungles of Thailand, and went camel riding through the desert of East Africa. My favorite and most memorable trips however, are to East and South Africa where I have had the pleasure of staying in tented camps as well as luxury lodge accommodations. Skiing is also one of my passions and I have skied in Canada, Utah, New Mexico, Lake Tahoe, Wyoming and most of Colorado.

We have booked many trips with Sue Bauer over the years and would never consider working with any other travel agent.  She is always very professional and helpful.  We can trust the accuracy of everything she does.

Wonderful for Grandchildren

Had a great time and was amazed at how much fun adults can have on a Disney cruise - the bonus is watching the children having even more fun.  Our trip was the best planned, best documented trip I have ever been on.  All World Travel has spoiled us many times before but this was over the top.

Highly recommended

We have used Sue and All World Travel for years,maybe 15+ years. Sue has been patient and sincere with us in selecting vacations and the incidentals associated with them. We could never be able to do her work now because we rely on her so much.

Your planning was perfect.  The weather a bit tough in  the beginning but we got used to the 57 -62 degrees throughout the trip.  Unusual for the Baltic countries to have this cool of weather at the end of June, but this is what we got.  Marriott in Copenhagen was a very nice hotel.  Rain during our two days there dampened our visit a bit, but we still enjoyed it.  The Regent ship was much more than my wife expected and she actually enjoyed the Cruise.  Visiting Berlin, Tallinn, St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm was great.  You arranged a great room for us in Stockholm's Grand Hotel and the Concierge  gave us wonderful restaurants to dine in.  Thanks for being a party to this trip.

Sue was very professional,informative and very personable. She notified us when there were upgrades available. We took advantage of those upgrades. When we had difficulties when on the trip she was available 24/7. We will certainly recommend her to other people if the situation arises.

Sue organized a complicated trip to South Africa for me and my family with her typical friendly good cheer. Her first hand knowledge and advice were excellent. Our trip was wonderful and the accommodations and internal connections were well coordinated. The cape grace hotel was magnificent. Finest hotel experience of all time. Walkersons in Dullstroom was beautiful and elegant. Ngala tented camp was spectacular with outstanding world class casually elegant service. I can always count on Sue to facilitate my needs and expectations.

The Riviera was as good as it was 2 years ago. I would sail anywhere either the Marina or Riviera sail. The ports were very nice to visit. The only issue was when traveling to ports where we will need money to pay for guides (horse handlers on the island of Dominican Republic) the ship should advise the passengers. Many on the trip with us had no money with them and were very upset that they were unable to give money to people who had spent 3 hours walking beside us. The people of those islands need the money very badly and they would have received much more had we been made aware of the situation. Since they give a talk the day before and send the cruise paper to our rooms the night before the ship could have easily advised us of the need to have money with us.

Expert friendly service

The Princess cruise trip was a 99.9% complete success including all of the services rendered by Sue Bauer. The Princess services but for one area were beyond expectation. The excursions management could be improved; eg. manning of the desk on the ship, and getting all of us from the ship to the provided transportation. We actually ended up once on the wrong excursion bus because there were not enough guides to tell us where to go - we discovered the error ourselves in time to de-bus and find the correct one "to the right of the building vs to the left". Almost lost one piece of luggage upon debarkation as it was put with the "Navy 8" area instead of the "Navy 3" group - again we found it at the other end of the building in time. Sue could not of assisted in those two issues.

Wonderful trip. Tour guide and local guides were terrific. Changing dinner partners and alternating bus seats really allows for a group of 38 people to feel like they know one another. Navigating the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Ana Capri done amazingly efficiently . Sightseeing in Rome very comprehensive and private tour of Sistine chapel highlight of trip! This was our first Tauck trip and it certainly lived up to everything we had heard.

Tauck BDP-AST Sep 2016

By: John2016

Reviewed on: 05 Oct 2016

As expected, Tauck delivered and delighted. This 2 week river cruise on the Swiss Jewel was no exception - quality vessel, excellent crew, exceptional food & service, and very knowledgeable docents complimenting the experience of Tauck's tour directors. Shore excursions were well planned & conducted; the on board activities entertaining. A well paced agenda. In our instance, the weather was excellent which further enhanced our experience. One note of caution: We & our traveling companions booked the mini-suites (317, 318) on the assurance of Tauck sales that they were quiet and comfortable notwithstanding their location at the back of the ship. That is definitely not the case as they were very noisy and vibrated given their proximity to the engine stacks. A good sleep was difficult. As only one full suite was available due to a late cancellation, our companions won the toss and upgraded to that suite located on the same deck amid ship. Noise and vibration not a problem there.

Epic 37 day European adventure

By: Wanderlust*Kim

Reviewed on: 08 Aug 2017

A trip of many firsts: my husband and I had never before ventured out of the U.S. or worked with Sue Bauer and Virtuoso. Sue spent countless hours planning an itinerary that exceeded our wildest expectations and created a personalized, unforgettable experience! Traveling to 7 European countries in 37 days (England, France, Austria, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Italy) we expected some bumps in the road, but every aspect of our trip unfolded without a single glitch-from reservations at spectacular hotels (we stayed at 10 different properties) to flights, trains, boats, transfers, tours, drivers and guides. This speaks volumes about Sue's expertise as a top travel advisor; she fit the puzzle pieces together, with a plan for every circumstance we may have encountered. It's this attention to detail that allowed us the confidence to enjoy every moment of the journey. Sue's part teacher, counselor, friend and magician! We look forward to working with her on many future adventures!
