Our Client's Feedback
"My wife and I decided to take our two teenager daughters on an all-inclusive Caribbean vacation over the Christmas holiday. We have not been out of the country with the teens before, nor have we done an all-inclusive in over 20 years. We initially had met with a travel rep from a larger name Madison area company and had a very lukewarm, discouraging experience. A friend recommended us to Sue and See Your World Adventures. Sue was very helpful to us. She really made this pretty easy for us through excellent communication, being proactive, informative, and excited for us. We ended up in Punta Cana, DR for a week and it was excellent. A few specifics:Sue helped us navigate the many different resort options. She monitored prices for us and was super-proactive about helping us lock in and secure a room when a price dip appeared unexpectedly. We had a similar experience when our flight was unexpectedly cancelled - Sue notified us immediately, calmly layed out our options and helped us lock into a new flight. She also guided us through what we found to be confusing options for travelers insurance. On top of all of that Sue was also willing to handle ad hoc inquiries that popped up as we neared the day of departure. The entire experience was just easy for us, and would not have been without Sue's expertise. Thank you Sue for helping us put together a vacation that we will remember for the rest of our lives.We are likely to travel again with our younger daughter in two years and will certainly hope to work with Sue again."

"Thank you so much for helping us with everything!!! Your expertise and knowledge put our minds at ease while we were planning our trip and all the while we were on vacation. We did the Marinarium snorkeling cruise and Dune buggy excursion and everyone enjoyed both. Our resort was awesome! The food was great, staff was amazing, our room was perfect and the beach... the beach was our favorite! We will definitely contact you with future vacations because you made it so easy! THANK YOU!!!"
Angie, Jeff, Quinntin, Connor, Claudia and Logan (Iberostar Bavaro, Punta Cana)
I have now used Sue two different times to help me make plans and both experiences have been phenomenal. She has been so great, that I have recommended her to my family and friends and they also loved her. I most recently used her to take my 5 year old to Disney, and if it wasn't for her and all of her help and knowledge it may have been a disaster. It never mattered when I contacted her or if I may have even asked the same questions twice, she was always right on top of everything getting back to me promptly. I will continue to refer to other people who may need help and I will most definitely continue to use her for future trips I may take."
Jill Salmon, Soldiers Grove, WI (Disney World, Orlando Florida)
Ron and Sue planned our first trip to Costa Rica and we could not have been more pleased! It was a trip of a lifetime, completely tailored to my family's interests and desires. With all their vast travel experience, they know the best places to stay and adventures to take! Sue helped us plan each day of our trip so we did not miss any cool side excursions, while also blending in just the right amount of "down time". Ron helped us secure the best flights and routes to fit our time frame. We were supported through the whole process, from dreaming it to making it a reality. Thank you, Ron and Sue, for helping us create such fabulous family memories!"
The Sullivan Family, Oregon WI (Arenal and Moteverde, Costa Rica)
"Sue did a marvelous job coordinating travels for 15 of us on the Avalon Danube River Cruise. We began our adventure on April 1. Traveling on the "shoulder season" had the great advantage of smaller crowds on the boat and in the cities.Budapest and Prague are sublime and not to be missed. Avalon includes informative, guided tours of the bigger cities. These were a great introduction! Our personal favorite add-on excursion was to Cesky Krumlov, a medieval gem in the Czech Republic. The Avalon Panorama boat was extremely well designed with understated elegance. Staff were very helpful and engaging. It was such a memorable trip!!!"
Elly & Tim, Madison WI (Avalon "The Blue Danube Discovery" River Cruise)
"Sue helped us book our trip to Clearwater, Florida. We had wonderful accommodations. Our hotel was in a great location. We had a very relaxing vacation. We will be contacting Sue when we plan our next trip."
Jerry and Brenda Roth, Evansville, WI (Clearwater Florida)
"We are so grateful that we had your help in planning our honeymoon. We both had not traveled without our families before and had a completely stress free trip. You guys helped us find a great deal through apple vacations square deal, and got everything together for us along with travel insurance so we had nothing to worry about. I'm generally get stressed out while traveling, and not once did I have a worry. It was very nice that we didn't have that stress during our relaxing honeymoon.We will definitely be coming back to you guys for any and all trips we plan in our future. Thanks again!"
Brin Davies and Jared Lehner, Madison, WI (Square Deal-Breathless Punta Cana)
"This was our first international family vacation and working with Sue and Ron at See Your World Adventures made it easy. They found out what we wanted to do, did the research, gave us options, and then took care of all of the details. We didn't have to worry about anything other than getting our passports and getting to the airport. We definitely recommend working with them for your travel needs and will work with them for our future travel needs."
Dave & Sue Moran, Oregon, WI (St. Maarten)
"Sue was referred to me by a co-worker who travels much more than I do. She was able to secure an INCREDIBLE deal on a trip to Punta Cana that we would have traditionally not been able to afford. We don't travel a lot so there was a lot of hand holding involved. She was genuinely excited for us and not even remotely bothered by our continual questions. Everything went off without a hitch, she thought of everything because we didn't even know where to begin. We were very well taken care of and I think I would be much more comfortable traveling in the future. The resort was wonderful and I really appreciated getting first hand recommendations since Sue had recently been there. The Hard Rock worked great as a family trip. We especially enjoyed swimming with the dolphins and parasailing. Anything you wanted to do, someone was there to help you. Thank you Sue, I look forward to traveling with you again!
Lisa & Kent Christensen, Brooklyn, WI (Hard Rock Punta Cana)
"Sue did an excellent job helping us coordinate our wedding at NOW Larimar in Punta Cana. She took care of getting the flights, reservations, parking, and transfers for over 30 people. She set me up with the wedding coordinator down in Punta Cana and told me all the things I needed to get started on to plan a wedding. Whenever anyone in my party emailed Sue with a question she answered ASAP. I had no stress about traveling thanks to Sue. I will use Sue every time we plan a vacation.
Allie Clausen and Zach Thornton, Prairie du Chien, WI (NOW Larimar Punta Cana Destination Wedding)
"I have been thinking of you and wanting to thank you so much for the coordination of our fabulous trip to Cuba. Cuba was amazing...we both loved the tour. We had a diverse group of 21 and then a total of 24 which included tour director, tour guide and bus driver. The accommodation were very good and the food was excellent...no complaints there. Almost too much food. The groups we met with were very well chosen, diverse, extremely talented and excited to host Americans. It is a beautiful country, still in a time warp, but now is the time to go. Soon it will change and an increase in tourism will add problems.
I will add that our group was very compatible....ages ranged from mid forties to mid eighties. Truly a great trip...so glad we went." Sylvia and Dennis Bailey, Beaufort, SC (Globus- Cuba's Charming Colonial Cities and Havana)
"I have just gotten home from the Avalon Riverboat tour of Prague to Paris. It was amazing. The ship far exceeded my expectations. The floor to ceiling window view was unbelievable, the food was delicious and lots of variety. The rooftop deck was a bonus. Having everything taken care of for you was the best, from transfers, hotels, and daily tours. Our cruise director Danielle worked around the clock to ensure that everything went smoothly and was always available for questions or help. We would definitely do this again. We just need to decide which tour!"
Jonna and Rick Hobbs, Hartland, WI (Avalon's Central European Experience on Artistry II)
"We were referred to Sue by friends who booked a European river cruise through her and were extremely satisfied, so we chose to go with her. We booked the Rhine River Cruise starting in Basel, Switzerland and ending in Amsterdam and added four days in Paris at the end. Sue was very patient with my many questions and worries and answered all my questions promptly. She gave us a "book" that contained all the information we'd need on our cruise, excursions, and add-on to Paris (including phone numbers and contacts at each place), and before we left she reviewed every detail with us. Before we got to O'Hare airport, I received a message from Sue that the first leg of our cruise would not happen because of the high water levels on the Rhine and that we'd start the cruise in Strasbourg, France. She told us there'd be a motor coach taking us from our hotel to the ship the next day. Other people going on our cruise were unaware about the delay and change in departure plans. The trip was a wonderful experience thanks to Sue and her meticulous assistance and communication."
MaryLou and Mark Condon, Stoughton, WI (Rhine River Cruise and Paris)
"Sue and Ron have helped us book our vacation the past few years. Anytime I've had a question, they have responded quickly. They are very pleasant to work with and make every effort to make my trip an enjoyable vacation. Sue was out of the country on vacation, yet she still helped make an adjustment to my booking. We will book future trips through them."
Sue Grady and Todd Schneider, Cottage Grove, WI (Punta Cana)
"Sue at See Your World Adventures went out of her way to guarantee we had a stress-free Caribbean honeymoon. She met with us and took care of a number of details that we would have never even thought about. We got to breeze by people in the airport, were seated for our dinner reservations promptly, and knew about all the extra amenities we had access to because Sue had taken care of absolutely everything. The only thing left for us to do was relax. Our week in the Caribbean sun was more than we could have expected at such a great price. Thank you for your expertise, professionalism, kindness, and for ensuring we had a perfect honeymoon that we will remember forever!"
Michael D. and Ashley G., Madison, WI(Punta Cana)
"I would like to Thank Sue for helping us book our trip to Mexico! She did an awesome job finding exactly what we were looking for. She was so patient and helpful answering a lot of questions. Sue also suggested flying out of Rockford International Airport instead of Milwaukee or Chicago. It was so easy to find, easy to get in & out without all the hassles of the bigger airports. Will definitely fly out of there when we decide to travel again. Thanks again Sue!!"
Lisa Salmon, (Cancun Riviera Mexico)
"Just back from a wonderful trip to Mexico that was planned with the help (who am I kidding, she planned it all) of Sue!!! This is the second trip that Sue has planned for me, (the first being to Europe) and both were equally wonderful. She works through all of the details, from flights, to parking, to phone apps. for the trip, and then explains and explains again for those of us who are not so 'tech savvy'. I think I'll just let Sue pick my next trip! I know it will be awesome! Thanks so much!"
"Thank you so much for helping plan our family vacation to Europe. We had a great time and everything was very well organized. Sue was great to work with — very patient and always willing to look into any questions that we had. We will definitely use See Your World Adventures for our next vacation."
Jim, Jane & Maria Cisler
"Thank you so very much for all the planning and work you did for our trip to Europe! See Your World Adventures did such a wonderful job of thinking of different scenarios and travel options so that I knew I had all the information I needed to make an informed decision. They worked with me as I kept changing my ideas and possible itineraries and always had options for me to chose between. The pricing they were able to get was excellent and I was right in the heart of all I wanted to see and do. I cannot wait to involve them in my next adventure!"
Christine Johnston and family (Budapest and Prague)
"I loved having Sue and Ron help plan our vacation! They provided expertise and recommendations to help us make our selections and handled the booking details. That was welcomed help for a busy family! As we got closer to our trip, they gave us an organized packet with all the detailed information to take along. Finally, I got a personal note from Sue wishing us well on our way, and a follow-up when we returned. It is very clear that Sue and Ron love what they do and truly care about making sure their clients are taken care of from initial planning through return. Thanks so much for everything - we'll definitely be back!!"
Erika Mundinger and Christian Witek (Disney World-Animal Kingdom Resort)
"You were always so patient and available - I so appreciate your services - I would use your services again and recommend you to anyone!"
Christina and John Ross (Universal Studios and Cocoa Beach)
"We really liked the flexibility that Sue provided us. She came to our house to discuss the details of our trip. She got to know us and made hotel suggestions based on our personalities. She worked around our schedule, which was great for us. Our Disney Cruise turned out to be even better than we expected it to be. We didn't expect to enjoy it as much as we did. If you like Disney, then a Disney Cruise will take that up by 10. The Characters are very accessible, the food is all-inclusive and delicious, and the service is spot-on. The Cast Member interaction was, probably, the best part. Photographers remembered our children based on their outfits from the first day of the cruise. Even the Cruise Director got on one knee and assisted my son with a question about the best place to watch the fireworks (which were really fun to see over the ocean). It is definitely something that we plan to do again in the future :-)"
Nick, Jennifer, Alexander and Sylvia Nelson (Disney Dream)
"The resort was absolutely fantastic! By far the best that we have ever been to. They upgraded us when we got there and honestly believe we were in the best room location on the entire resort. We were at the corner of the pool and the ocean. Wonderful waking up every morning and being right next to the ocean. The staff was wonderful and we had our own private butler the entire time which was very nice. Didn't take full advantage of it but every night we came back to the room they had different things set up in the room whether it be rose petals, candles or bottles of wine. I would definitely highly recommend this resort in the future. Again, thank you very much for all of your help with a great honeymoon! Look forward to working with you in the future."
Alex and Danielle Peterson (Iberostar Grand Rose Hall,Jamaica)
"If you want a successful vacation of anywhere or any size, Sue and Ron Marsden with See Your World Adventures are the travel agents to call! They helped my extended family book a 2 week vacation to Hawaii for 14 people last summer. They were efficient and organized - always sending email and hard copies of receipts and schedules and regularly checking in with the next decisions to be made. They were willing to answer so many questions and search for the best deals that fit what our family was looking for. Because of their extensive travel, they had unique and creative suggestions that made our trip even more special. We've also used them to book hotels for our kids’ sports teams. They have made the weekend away tournaments much easier. They currently are in the middle of planning a 14 person Caribbean Cruise for us for next year. I would never again travel without See Your World Adventure at the foundation of my planning! They are definitely the best travel agents around."
Michelle and Ric Pearson and Family
"My experience with Sue at See Your World Adventures could not have been better. She worked with our group to decide where to vacation- not an easy feat in and of itself! We were all coming from multiple destinations and Sue was able to procure favorable rates and arrange arrival times close together. Prior to departure, we all received hard copies of our itinerary with hand written notes- it was INVALUABLE! She assisted in making our travel a priceless experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!"
"Ron and Sue were wonderful to work with. We had some issues with our passports and Sue was able to find us contacts to help us get them in time. She definitely went above and beyond for us! As for our trip, it was wonderful. She set everything up for us, we didn't have to worry about a thing. Can't wait to book another one with them. They were FABULOUS!"
Nikki and Mike Kipp and Family
"I want to thank Sue and See Your World Adventures for the work they did in coordinating our latest vacation to Cancun. I cannot express how nice it was for our busy lives, to have something coordinated completely so it wasn't our burden. I think there is a perception that using a travel agent will increase the cost of your trip--this is not what we found and, in fact, when you discount the time it would have taken us to search discount sites and other resources to book, we probably realized a cost savings. We had a "hiccup" with our hotel when we first arrived (not the fault of See Your World Adventures) and I was able to loop in Sue to resolve the issue only after a short period of time. We had a great vacation!"
Joni Simmons and Family
"Ron and Sue did a great job helping us organize our two month visit to New Zealand. They helped us secure the best prices on flights and car rentals and booked lodgings that met our specific needs. Before we left, they provided us with a folder with all the information we needed for the trip; all we had to do was pack. We found their service invaluable.
Melanie Tavera and Greg Hotmann
"THANK YOU for planing our cruise to the Southern Caribbean on RCI. We really appreciate your attention to detail. Our average temperature was 83.6 degrees, love it! We arrived in San Juan a day early and your hotel recommendation was very nice. It was a 1200 sq. ft. one bedroom sweet, clean spacious and comfortable. Also a roof top infinity pool, small but cool. The Cruise was FANTASTIC! Four of the ports we have never been to and were great. Our favorite was Granada. People were very nice and our excursion of the Western part of the island was super. Spices galore, including visiting a couple of nutmeg plantations and waterfalls. Thanks for all the information prior to leaving for this cruise. It made for a relaxing week."
Tim & Anne Olson
"Thanks for helping plan our cruise and hotel reservation on such short notice. We all had a good time and it was enjoyable just watching our grandchildren's faces with each new experience for them."
Rick and Marcia Boylen
"Sue did a wonderful job working with me to get my family of 4 to Mexico. She suggested ideas, came to the house to drop off paperwork and booked our excursion. I had LOTS of questions and she was very patient with me :) I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to take a trip because they have resources we don't. Thanks again for the great trip!"
Kelly Lyn Maguigad
"We are home and what a wonderful trip we had!!! We can't thank you enough for all your help with this. We were really happy with Monograms!!! It was a life saver to have them taking care of our pickups and departures and getting us to our hotel. After seeing the mass confusion at the train stations it was nice to know they walked us right up to our train car and made sure we got on!! When we got to the hotel they had the rooms all checked in and we just had to wait for them to give us our keys, they did a little orientation speech and by then our luggage was in our room. The local hosts were very helpful with local info tips and the city sightseeing guides did a great job explaining the sights and we got to see the major highlights with them. So glad we did the Vatican/Colosseum "free" tour in Rome. I could not believe the lines for the Vatican for those not on a tour!!"
Darla and John Saxby
"It is wonderful to not have to worry about all the trip planning. This is the first time we have used a travel agent and I must say when our folder arrived it became very real and now I am soooo excited I can't wait. Thanks for all you do!!"
"We enjoyed our European Sampler trip very much. We did lots of things and learned a lot about Europe. Would like to go back and spend some more time in Germany. That was our favorite stop. Sue did a marvelous job in preparing us for our first trip over seas. Everything went smoothly thanks to her."
Louise and Carl Endres
"See Your World Adventures" first helped our family with a fun-filled trip to New York, after which we decided that we had found our match! They understand our needs and wants, take the stress out of planning with excellent organization and comprehensive information, and allow us to relax and enjoy our time away together. When you work with Sue and Ron, you will quickly recognize the personal touch that has become their trademark."
Kristin and James Lyerly
"We just returned from a two week cruise and land excursion to Alaska and Canada. Planning a trip of this magnitude seemed a little daunting until Sue and Ron took over. They planned everything and all we had to do was show up on the right day and time! Sue had our entire trip organized in one folder that she presented to us prior to our leaving. All we had to do was follow her instructions! Because of their own extensive travel Ron and Sue knew just where to send us and had many helpful tips to share. We are already working with them to plan our next vacation!"
Ed and Carol Shirk
"As my fiance and I are just a little over 2 months away from our destination wedding, we are finding ourselves very relaxed, excited, and anxious all at the same time! This is fully due to Sue Marsden of See Your World Adventures. Sue is extremely organized, helpful, and knowledgeable. Having never traveled over seas, my fiance and I were extremely nervous about pulling off a destination wedding. Those nerves were very quickly erased after a friend recommended Sue. Prior to the recommendation, we were trying to work with another travel agency out of Iowa that we found in the yellow pages. We were very frustrated with other agency and even questioned our decision to do a destination wedding. However, after contacting See Your World Adventures, we quickly realized that this could be done. Although we have never met in person, Sue has made our planning, preparation, and payment seamless from 2 1/2 hours away. I cannot say enough great things about Sue and her company. We feel as though we know exactly what to expect when the time finally arrives and cannot thank See Your World Adventures enough!!"
Kelssi Copus and Tim Dueluhery
“Every suggestion that you made was wonderfully helpful and the trip could not have been better!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help, patience and guidance in putting this trip together. It was awesome!”
Leanne, Jordan, Sydney and Michael Hake
"Ron and Sue at See Your World Adventures have planned numerous trips for our family and all have been very unique and outstanding experiences. They were genuinely interested in getting to know our family and our vacation desires which resulted in a "white glove" approach to travel that leaves the headaches of planning to them and has provided memorable vacations for us!"
Ibuki Kimura and Scott, Alex and Megan Button
"You are both so great to work with and willing to go the extra mile for so many things!"
Tina and Brandon Halverson
"THANKS for all your help, we LOVED our mini-California get-away and are so happy to have you helping us with our next mini trip."
Katie and Tom Grady
"I wanted to thank you for helping us plan our Washington D.C. vacation this July. We had a terrific time and your help in getting our trip organized and planned was really appreciated. We met up with another family and really enjoyed the ...trip. Many highlights including the National Mall tour, museum visits especially the Air & Space Museum and National Archives, Nationals baseball game and watching the fireworks on the 4th. Arlington National Cemetery was another must-see."
