“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!”

“The best customer service along with amazing travel deals. The process was smooth and really added value to my vacation.. I would not use anyone else but Creative Travel and Events period!!”
Johnny B.

“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.”
Gary & Sophia D.

“Above & beyond all the way!”
“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.”

Chris H.

“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!”
