Testimonials

“Sutra was an amazing agent, knowing I could reach out to her at anytime took so much stress off of me. My travel plans had some major changes (Covid, adding on travel partners) but Sutra never missed a beat!
Thank You!”

“Creative Travel & Events arranged my first real family vacation to Orlando, Florida. The itinerary was so simple that I questioned it, but everything went according to plan.  The airlines treated us so good and put us on first. Each plane was spacious with plenty of leg room and comfort. The rental car staff was great and the hotel staff treated us very good. All I had to do everywhere we went was show my Identification and our plans were found perfectly. When we got to Universal Studios, they gave us our passes and explained we had early entry each day and could go back and forth between theme parks if we desired to. We were moved ahead of everyone. I never thought our travels would be so wonderful. We had free character breakfasts and photo shoots as well. I couldn’t have done what Creative Travel & Events did for us. Thank you Sutra for all your hard work and for all the extra perks.”

“I used Creative Travel to book a recent trip to Lucerne Switzerland. After researching the details of international travel and coordinating flights with rail schedules I decided I needed a pro. Sutra was amazing and handled ALL the details for me and kept me informed every step of the way. I HIGHLY recommend her and Creative Travel for coordinating all your travel needs.”

“Sutra took care of all my travel needs, finding me a clean nice place well within my budget. Would highly recommend and will definitely use her services again.”

“We appreciate Sutra from Creative Travel& Events! She listens in detail to what we want then delivers with amazing experiences and specialized activities that make the trip memorable and special. For example, on our trip to Spain, Sutra found a hotel right on the beach that had the luxury of a full service resort yet staff that made you feel like you lived there- a second home. We also appreciated having a car rented- definitely made the trip individualized in that we could go where ever we wanted without being in a group! Thank you Sutra!”
