“I’ve had the opportunity to travel extensively, and have also HAD to deal with multiple travel agents.  Needless to say, many have not been pleasant — until I had the opportunity to work with Sue. Not only is Sue a pleasure to work with, I can rely on her to understand my needs as a high-maintenance traveler.  She listens to the details and anticipates my requirements based on previous experiences.  I can rely on her to take care of me, not only before my trip, but during and after.  I look forward to working with Sue to plan my next adventure.”

“Sue has a knack for finding the right accommodations for us. We were planning a girls’ weekend in Hilton Head, and she came up with the perfect option. It had three separate bedrooms and bathrooms, and was set in a lovely resort where we could rent bikes, hang out on the beach and more. Plus, it was in a great location near fun restaurants and shops. It’s like she read our minds! ”

“I, like many others, always dreamed of travelling overseas! However, when going through the process of planning my wedding, I became suddenly very stressed about also planning our honeymoon. Flights, car services, hotels, tours and guides… how would I know if I was making wise choices?

Using Sue Girardier at Destinations Unknown was my wise choice. First and foremost, our trip was mapped out and scheduled to perfection. Everything was completely stress free. We felt completely taken care of and comfortable.

In addition, we had exceptional hotels. Booking through Sue came with many rewards! Each room came with upgrades and special amenities to enjoy. Everywhere we stayed gave us the best possible service and made us feel right at home.

Travelling through a new country might seem overwhelming or even daunting. Not for us! Sue had arranged private tours with excellent guides. We had the opportunity to truly experience European culture. The 1:1 tours Sue arranged completely customized our experience.

Sue arranged all of this and then some. She was available to answer any and all questions—and the itinerary and send-off documents were so thorough! They even included helpful advice on currency and local events. Every detail was masterfully managed.

Our honeymoon was perfect—absolutely the trip of a lifetime. I would have never been able to plan a trip this amazing on my own. Our two-week romp through Spain and England may have come to an end, but our engagement with Sue will not. I can’t wait for our next adventure, planned by Destinations Unknown!”

“Sue’s travel expertise made this bucket list vacation to Cape Cod, for a group of sisters, a wonderful experience.  I was delighted by the arrangements, which were somewhat complicated in getting five sisters to one destination from different cities.  The arrangements included air travel, a hotel by the airport, and finally the luxurious Chatham Bars Inn Resort with all the amenities. I look forward to Sue arranging my retirement celebration travel plans.”

“Working with Sue as my Travel Consultant was invaluable for me since I was planning multi-city, 2 week-long trip to Spain.  Finding great hotels and getting advice/suggestions on things to do/see in each location was amazing.  For example, she recommended staying at the winery and doing the wine/olive oil tour; this  would never have been something I would have chosen on my own but it ended up being one of our best experiences.  I will definitely keep Destinations Unknown in mind for future trips!”
