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.
Personal Escape Travel Inc.'s reply:Such a pleasure to work with you family!! So happy that everyone had a wonderful time. Looking forward to planning our next adventure soon!!

Last May, Sue Blume organized a trip to Munich, Germany for 9 High School Seniors and their parents. I was one of the parents. This was my first time visiting Germany. It was the highlight of our High School Seniors lives. Mine too! All the details of the journey, including Air, Hotel, transfers to and from the Airport, and various excursions, were managed to a tee. Changes in excursions because of weather, cancellations, or other factors, were all handled effortlessly by Sue. In addition, Sue was also a great German Tour Guide, having lived there with her husband many years ago. I would wholeheartedly recommend Sue to anyone planning this type of adventure.Sent on 01/14/2020

Truly an expert!
Sue is amazing at what she does! I had no idea where to start when it came to planning for our honeymoon. With us getting married during “hurricane season” I felt we would be limited in choices of destinations and activities. Sue took the time to listen to my questions and concerns and put together a number of recommendations for us to look into. She was very responsive via both email and phone calls, answering the hundreds of questions I must have thrown at her. I loved that she not only knew about these vacation destinations, but also had visited and experienced the resorts and locations, and was able to provide her hands on experiences and knowledge, and trusted in her opinions and insight. Our honeymoon to Riviera Maya, Mexico was unforgettable and we can’t wait to work with Sue again. Thank you!!Sent on 12/29/2019

Our experience was GREAT!
We stayed at the Sonesta Ocean point resort in Saint Martin 9/20/19-9/24/19 and had a wonderful time! The resort was beautiful, and we had a great room overlooking the ocean.
The workers at St Martin were very accommodating to all our needs. From the pool to room service they were always around to get us what we wanted. We enjoyed all the restaurants as well. Food was great at each one. We especially loved the Azul restaurant, beautiful views, delicious food and great ambiance! Thank you Susan Blume from Personal escape Travel for recommending this resort to us, you did a great job at organizing our stay from start to finish!
We will definitely be going back in the near future.Sent on 10/01/2019

Susan is awesome!!
We always book our cruises and all inclusive resorts through Personal Escape Travel! Susan is always so knowledgeable of many places and so helpful in making travel plans. She recently booked us on a 14 night Cunard cruise to New England and Canada and was able to tell us what to see and how to get around at each port. We will not have to take many ship board excursions. She is always quick to respond and always so helpful in our decision making.Sent on 08/20/2019

My husband and I had an outstanding experience working with Sue from Personal Escape Travel to plan our honeymoon. Sue was so amazing and a wealth of information from the very beginning when my husband and I weren’t even sure where to go. We gave her a budget and a few details about location, activities, and length of stay, and Sue got back to us promptly with detailed sample itineraries for us to choose from. Sue helped us figure out which trip would best fit what we were looking for by comparing important details like climate (rainy/hurricane season), sightseeing opportunities, and travel/accommodations. We ended up deciding on a trip to Bali that, despite the long flight (about 20 hours total one way), was truly the greatest, most unique, and luxurious vacation of our lives!Sent on 10/21/2019
Before leaving on our trip, Sue made sure to send us vouchers with details for our different accommodations and activities and a detailed itinerary. Now, the trip itself… Sue planned us a truly extravagant adventure across the country of Bali for our honeymoon. We started in one of the top resort hotels in one of the main cities, Seminyak, then traveled north to Ubud, and back south to Sanur. Sue made sure our accommodations only got nicer and more luxurious as the trip progressed. The final resort in Sanur included a private two story honeymoon villa, complete with a private butler and pool. We were blown away by the graciousness and kindness of literally all the staff at every resort. Sue arranged private transportation for all of our excursions and Oka, our great travel guide, accompanied us on all of our trips, telling us all about Balinese culture and suggesting areas to visit for our next visit- we have to go back! Throughout our trip we felt perfectly safe and secure, which is so important when traveling across the world. Sue checked in with us to make sure there were no issue with our flights and was very prompt to answer any impromptu questions we had before and during the trip.
Some highlights on our itinerary included a food tour of Bali where we got to try local food and visit a farmer’s market and try some of the delicious fresh fruit Bali has to offer and a beautiful candlelit dinner in a cave on the beach. We visited several Balinese temples and one was a cliffside temple where we also got to see a traditional Balinese fire dance- a must see if you visit Bali! Needless to say, the photo ops were abundant throughout this entire trip.
A honeymoon is a once in a lifetime trip and that is certainly what this was and we are so grateful to Sue for putting everything together for us so perfectly! I can’t say enough how much of an amazing experience we had in Bali and I highly recommend Personal Escape Travel for anyone looking to have a unique and memorable honeymoon. We can’t wait to go back and we fully intend to work with Sue and Personal Escape Travel when planning all of our vacations in the future!

My family’s favorite vacation to date!
The trip I booked through Susan Blume with Personal Escape Travel was for a graduation gift for my son. We toured Munich and the surrounding area with a large group of friends and family. The excursions we decided on based on Sue’s suggestions were beyond our expectations - we went on an unforgettable food tasting tour through the Marienplatz, road on the romantic road to Rothenburg and spent the day at King Ludwig’s castle. Our accommodations were comfortable and a convenient walking distance to the Marienplatz where we dined, shopped and drank often (not always in that order)! I would not hesitate to reach out to Sue for all of my travel needs going forward. Sue is knowledgeable, warm and friendly. No task is to great or small for her when she plans your long awaited adventure.Sent on 01/15/2020

Sue Blume planned the vacation of a lifetime in Germany! The itinerary had something for everybody - fun for every age and energy level. Her communication is thorough and organized, and she thinks about the details that can make or break a trip.
