Owner & Travel Consultant
Sue has owned Lake Zurich Travel & Cruise since 1992, and has traveled extensively throughout the world and her passion is to make every client have the best vacation possible.
When asked where her favorite place is in the world, Sue has a hard time answering, and has different favorites for different reasons! Hawaii is always near the top, and she travels there often, enjoying the surf, the wonderful hotels, beaches, local people, and golf courses. An avid golfer herself, Sue has played many of the top courses in Hawaii and elsewhere.
Alaska is always alluring, and she strives to make sure the clients have a variety of experiences there, including her favorite whale watching with a great old seaman in Juneau!
Her choice for "most beautiful" is the Canadian Rockies, especially Banff and Lake Louise, and for the top of her bucket list, she was glad to check the Galapagos Islands, which is a true lifetime experience as you swim with the sea lions and stand next to a hundred-year old turtle.
Another of Sue's favorite destinations is Ireland, and has taken many groups to enjoy the scenery, the pubs, the friendly people, the castles, trace their geneology, and of course, play some golf.
Sue's son and daughter both live in the south of France, so she travels often to Europe, and loves both France and Italy, as well as Turkey and Greece. One of her favorite experiences was a Riverboat cruise on the rivers of France, enjoying the food, the wine-tasting, the vineyards, and the spice markets. She loves shopping in Italy, and relaxing with the wonderful Italian peoples.
Sue has also visited South America, Costa Rica (zip lining was amazing), Peru, the Amazon in a tree-top jungle lodge, Brazil, Mexico, most of the Caribbean islands, as well as China, the Yangtze river cruise areas, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong and more.
Sue has also been on over 40 cruises, most major cruise lines from the largest ship at sea, The Oasis of the Seas, to small, intimate luxury yachts such as Seabourn's Odyssey and Silversea's Silver Wind, as well as several River cruise ships and expedition ships. The most beautiful waters she ever sailed was in French Polynesia with her husband on the Paul Gauguin, through the islands of Tahiti, ending with a few days snorkeling off the balcony of their over-the water bungalow.
