Took care of everything for my destination wedding
I worked very closely with Sue for my destination wedding – I cannot say enough positive things about my experience! First, I was always impressed by how quickly Sue replied to my emails/calls – I always had reliable answers immediately, sometimes we exchanged several emails in one day, which for a bride was an immense relief as I can imagine waiting around for answers could just add to the stress! She was also willing to work with me nights and weekends to fit around my schedule, and the weekend of the wedding she let me know that she was basically on call the entire time – as she saw to every detail well in advance of the wedding, I did not actually need her on the wedding weekend, but just knowing she was available provided me with peace of mind.Sent on 03/05/2020
In addition, Sue guided us to our resort for our destination wedding, and it was perfect! The resort was beautiful like many others in the Caribbean, but their focus on weddings (only one wedding a day), attention to details, and personalization not only blew me away but my guests as well! In addition, Sue knew that this resort held a Bride’s Dress Rehearsal, an event where we could see the resort, meet the vendors, and make decisions well before the wedding – all of which Sue helped us arrange.
While working with Sue, I felt like no request was too large or small as she worked with me on every single detail – she ensured that certain guests did not have rooms next to each other (family drama is unavoidable), she switched flights when schedules changed and made sure to get the best prices, she was willing to work with our crazy budget (we helped pay a portion of the trip for all of our guests, of course it was on a guest by guest basis so the amount was always different, but she never complained about the additional burden of figuring out how much we owed and how much each guest owed), and she even talked me off a ledge and arranged travel last minute when two additional guests were invited by someone other than myself or the groom. Further, I appreciated that Sue was budget conscious for me – for example, when deciding on which location to have the wedding reception, she suggested a particular location that was free (as compared to $950 for the location I was considering), as it was not only free, but it also overlooked the dance floor which would be nice for our grandmother in a wheelchair to observe the action – we felt this was so thoughtful of Sue to consider her, and we were so grateful at the time of the reception to have our grandmother so close to us! And the location was just beautiful!
Finally, Sue was always available to bounce ideas off of, and she provided insightful suggestions. I sent all of the wedding design ideas to both her and my wedding coordinator so I could get her opinion, as well as other items unrelated to booking travel arrangements. Overall, working with Sue was such a pleasure, and I know that she is responsible for making the wedding process as smooth and as stress free as it was. I would recommend Sue to anyone, for any kind of travel, and definitely for destination weddings!

We are so thankful for Susan Blume at Personal Escape Travel for making a dream vacation come true. Susan was able to tailor our vacation to Munich Germany perfectly. Susan planned out perfectly how we could visit all the spots on our list. We were able to enjoy a carefree vacation knowing that every detail was planned for us. Our trip was mapped out professionally from A-Z, no details were left out. We will be forever grateful to Sue for creating a once in a life time experience. I can't wait for our next adventure planned by such a wonderful person.Sent on 01/14/2020

Spring Munich group trip
Wonderful spring trip to Munich with a group encompassing 3 generations. Tours and events were first rate with something for everyone. Susan knows the area well and was able to provide some excellent choices and recommendations. Enough free time for shopping, exploring or relaxing. She made special arrangements for last minute air travel changes which were seamless and didn't require fees (travel insurance is worth it...you never know).Sent on 01/15/2020
Looking forward to booking future adventures through Susan.
