There was indeed an adventure of a lifetime! I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the itinerary and management of our group. Having traveled extensively, I can appreciate the “behind the scenes” work it took to pull off such a seamless trip – D. Moore

Your dedication helping each person get all they could from this trip as well as making all feel a part of the AFS family made this one of the best vacations of my life! – S. Sanford

Finding you guys on the internet was one of the best things that ever happened to me. You’ve opened up a world of travel adventures. – L. Hanson

This was my first “Suzy” trip as it is called by your regulars, but not my 1st singles trip. …Your trips are truly amazing. It was well planned and well lead, you can tell that you love what you do and that you have strived to give your customers the best experience possible…I will refer your company to other travel mates…You addressed the hiccups we even had a chance to contact which is also great…Until I travel again thank you for planning a great trip. C. Warren A big thank you to all who made this trip (Thailand 2008) so special for me.

We had such a fabulous time. I experienced things I would never have thought possible ( …. saw the Southern Cross for the first time… ((gee I should write a song 😉 )) the Milky Way and shooting stars were literally in our face and the colors of the Barrier Reef were more vivid than one could imagine. It was a positively magical time…I can only imagine how much hard work you put in on the front end to give us all the adventures of a lifetime and I know that we can’t express our appreciation enough. Thanks for everything you do and I can’t wait for the next “adventure – JC Rutherford

This was my third trip with AFS and as expected, it was again spectacular! …Everything was so well organized and Kevin is an amazing team leader!…The people on this trip were so much fun and everybody got along well. I had brought my friend Daneen with me this time and she is now also hooked on AFS – M Gursky

A big thank you to all who made this trip (Thailand 2008) so special for me. Of course I have to begin and end with Suzy and Terry, who planned it, arranged it, made sure we were well protected and entertained at all times. My roommate was wonderful and even though we were strangers for only a moment in time, we will now be life-long friends forever. All the other travelers on this journey were friendly open people that I would travel again with anytime. I only expected to meet and remember a couple of people, instead, I traveled with 45 family and friends whom I will share these precious memories with forever. We all happened to be in the right place at the right time to see history being made. The guides, Vanna, Usa, Ty and Natalie, gave us an education and taste of life that was real yet, easily learned and I think, absorbed by us all. We are better people for their efforts. I look forward to many more trips with Suzy and Terry. Thank you again. – G. Cochran

I wanted to thank you for the work you put into creating such diverse and unique adventures. I am coming to love group travel more and more each time I sign on with you. So many of your trips are ones that you won’t find anywhere else and are to areas in this world that one probably shouldn’t travel without an expert guiding their way. Its so nice to just sit back and be confident that someone else has your back and all we have to do is just simply enjoy. What else is unique about your trips are that you find so many “friends” from past trips due to your loyal followers and each subsequent trip is like a family reunion that only gets bigger each time. I have met so many sweet, sweet people and am lucky to be able to call most of them friends now too. In addition, I have to tell you that Janice and Carol are two of the greatest guides/people/friends. So happy to have roomed with them and getting to know them. Thank you. Jennie Toale

Suzy and Terry, Thank you for a Great Trip to Kenya. You went above and beyond and it has far exceeded all expectations. We have always enjoyed traveling with your company, and this Trip was not Exception! Again,……Thank you! 🙂 Bryan White

Suzy, you are the OPRAH of TRAVEL! Words can’t express my gratitude for the Kenya trip. Wendy Trenchard

Italy was a dream for me….and this trip only proved that there is so much more of Italy to discover. Thanks to Suzy and Terry for a great trip, well planned and implemented. I have made even more new friends on this, my 3rd \”Suzy\” trip. Loved every minute! Denise Baldwin

Suzy & Terry, While Africa was on my bucket list, it was not necessarily at the to of my list. AFS offers several different African country opportunities which is wonderful. I just returned from my first safari in Kenya. Beyond amazing is how to best describe this trip!! It far exceeded my expectations! The first game drive produced so many different and plentiful animals that I was fully satisfied, feeling that anything more would simple be icing on the cake. Each following day and game drive produced even more thrilling experiences! How do you top a cheetah jumping on a safari van?! And yet, we did! Every day brought an even more incredible experience! Kenya, the bountiful animals, and best of all, positive AFS community of like minded fellow travelers made my FIRST Africa trek soo memorable! I immediately wait listed for my next Africa experience just a couple days into my Kenya Safari! My fingers are crossed! Suzy & Terry, you deliver exciting experiences & lifetime memories! I couldn’t sleep the first few nights because of all the excitement! Janina Dionisio

Just returned from Forks&Corks in Italy with Suzy and a great group of experienced and fun travelers. I can\’t believe how many unique experiences we had in just a week…from tortellini to chocolates and parmigiana to vino. We toured beautiful little towns plus Florence and Bologna and I left my heart in Tuscany. Can\’t wait for Australia and Borneo in 2015. AFS is THE way to tour as a single! Franette Armstrong

This was my first AFS trip. My nerves quickly dissapated upon arrival at the first lovely old and charming hotel in Modena. From this point things only got better, if indeed that was possible! Suzy, Terry, Joann (Guide from the heavens) and wonderful Stefano (driver) took this large exuberant group to magical places filled with amazing food journeys, mystical wine cellars, lots of prosciutto and breathtaking landscapes. Italy is more than beautiful-BUT Suzy thought of EVERYTHING, and then some! Fear not those skeptical about booking with AFS- pack your bags (lightly- leaving room for your purchases) and sit back and enjoy the wonder, love and expertise known as Suzy!! Thank you Suzy- you have opened my heart and mind and filled it with love, gratitude and a forever friendship in you!! Love Dee Sternlieb

I returned from my 8th AFS trip last week and am still reveling in the beauty of the sights and sounds from the Elephant Whisperer trip. From the tent at Thula Thula where I would wake up to birds and monkeys greeting the sun to the thatched cottage at Thonga Beach Lodge where I could see the Indian Ocean from my bed, each day brought new discoveries and fun. Thank you for what was the best trip ever. I don\’t think I will ever have a better birthday! You found the perfect roommate for me and the time you spend in researching the locations and preparing the itineraries is greatly appreciated. I look forward to the 2015 trips! Sheila Sandford

Just returned from another amazing AFS trip to the beautiful Greek Islands. It was everything I had imagined and more. Suzy I am grateful for all your hard work in putting together these wonderful adventures. Our GTL was the lovely Margo. She always has a smile and is available to anyone who needs her. A beautiful joyful spirit and makes everyone feel at ease. It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. All that is part of the adventure. Thank you once again and I look forward to the 2015 adventures. – Kathy Colleran

Suzy & Terry…..I just wanted to express my extreme pleasure and appreciation for the work you put into your trips. I have now gone on two (Bali & South Africa/Mozambique) and have enjoyed every single minute. I have been fortunate to travel the world plenty on my own and continue to do so so was hesitant at first to join a \”group\” – especially a large one like yours. But your itineraries and prices were just too tempting to ignore and I\’m so glad that I did. You really put together packages that have wonderful experiences, superb accommodations, afforadable pricing and the \”large\” groups are full of old-time friends, new ones that are quickly brought into the fold and overall wonderful, wonderful people. Its nice for me to travel on my own but I sure love to travel with friends too and even after only two trips – I now have a large group of friends. Thank you for all of that so I will continue to grab up a space on your trips (if I\’m fortunate enough to get in before they fill up) and see the world with you as well. PS – I\’m signed up for China and Lapland with you too and I can\’t wait…..I am soooooooo excited. And eagerly awaiting your announcement of the 2015 trips….please hurry. 🙂 Jennie Toale

Hi Suzy- This trip was an amazing itinerary – I think we all enjoyed being able to enjoy the safari on both days. Guides were fabulous & I didn’t really have any expectations.  Just hoping to see some wildlife. We saw rhinos, elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, wildebeest, etc. all within 20 feet of the jeep. Still gives me chills to think about how incredible it was to see them in their own environment & free & THAT close up. Unreal.   Our guide felt we must have brought good kharma & expectations on our drives as we got to see a lot:)  Loved the tree lodge! Food was fabulous (loved the outdoor dining)  & accommodations really nice. White Pearl was outstanding in every way. How great to unwind @ that beach after the go-go-go vibe of game drives. PERFECT. Loved everything about White Pearl.  Food, atmosphere, drinks, staff, accommodations.  Being 41 & single, I felt like I was on my own single honeymoon that I took myself on, in being able to experience that kind of luxury resort:) We had a great time meeting new friends on this one:) Thanks again for another life changing adventure!!!!!! Peace & hugs- Amy Allen

Hi, Suzy!  I wanted you to know how wonderful the Namibia trip was!  First of all, it is such a beautiful country – I don’t know where to begin!   We stayed at wonderful places and the itinerary was incredible – we saw so much of the country as we were traveling from place to place. We had amazing adventures – from our visit with the Himbas, our Safari in Etosha,  our tour of Walvis Bay, our fly-overs, the quads on the dunes, the incredible wonders in Twyfelfontein – too many to list here! But travelling with a group of adventurous, fun-loving, kind-hearted people is what truly made this trip so special! Our GTL Roxie did a fantastic job of working to make sure that all went well So – thank you, thank you, thank you — I look forward to my next adventure and seeing some of my new traveling friends again! Warm regards, Rosemarie

Hi Suzy & Terry, Great New Zealand trip! Awesome way to celebrate my 30th AFS adventure. Never disappointed. Thanks,- Bob H

Suzy, I just returned from the \’best vacation ever”. ..(For 2 years) I (would) haunt your website and dream about the trips. Then my friend Nitzi convinced me to (go) and I am so glad that I did. I knew from day 1 in Venice that this group was going to be great and they were absolutely the best. I had soooo much fun and truly enjoyed every member of the group. I can\’t wait to travel with you again. Just wish I didn\’t have to work so I could go when ever and where ever I wished. -Shirley Winkler

A+, Superb, Awesome, Fantastic and any other word that can be used to describe AFS, its participants, trips and leaders. This is what sets AFS apart from any other travel group. I just returned from the Dalmation Coast and can’t even come up with the words to describe the trip and the people who partook. The group had participants from multiple age groups, ethnicities and all around the world. What a blend of wonderness (if that’s even a word). The places we visited were just gorgeous. This can be said of any other trips I’ve taken with AFS. Antartica, Thailand, Israel – Jordan amoung many others the people and places make the trip. Thank you to Suzy and Terry for such a First Class travel group. Can’t wait for Lapland and who knows what else in 2014! Anne Miseyko

Just returned from The Dalmatian Coast trip – in one word SPECTACULAR! The ship was enchanting and the first night as we sailed out of Venice with all sails unfurled; brought me to tears. The group of people from AFS were fantastic; everyone lent to the overall experience of trip – I would travel with those wonderful people to any place. And the other passengers on the Royal Clipper gave our group high praise – saying how friendly and engaging we were. Can’t wait until next year – Holly Baldwin

I just returned from a singles trip to Kenya, a friend of mine had signed up with XXX and I figured why not go. Being that I have been on a few of your trips and friends that travel with you regularly I come to expect good customer service while on a singles group vacation. Let me tell you the service provides by the owner of XXX was more than appalling it was unprofessional and at times downright rude. There were a few ladies on the trip who love to travel and use them because they didn’t know other companies where out there with good prices, good itineraries and 5 star hotels all rolled into one. So after one night of some very embarrassing and rude actions by the owner/ trip leader I told them about AFS and that the service provided by Suzy and her trip leaders has always been over the top, that you will never here one of them answer a complaint with “that’s your problem not mine go find someone who cares” this was when our (mine) safari van broke. Needless to say that did not go over to well with me and that is just one example of the many things. It was nothing like the excellent customer service I have always received from your company, you are there to make sure it is a trip of a life time not to pad your wallet which is the impression I got from this other company. I hope the ladies I talked to look into your company and plan trips with you I think they would have a lot of fun and enjoy a trip the way it is to be enjoyed.- Carissa Warren

I just wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed the Sri Lanka trip. It definitely exceeded my expectations! I look back and can’t believe how many things we saw and did. It was so organized and chock full of a variety of things to see and do. The other group members tell me all your trips are this fabulous, busy, and fun! I recognize the amount of work this planning takes and I am in awe you do this every year for many many destinations – incredible! GTL Carol was wonderful, and I enjoyed meeting all the groups members. You have a large following of some great travelers who are also big fans of yours. This was my first trip with AFS and definitely not my last. I have made some good friends, and gained some great memories. Thank you! – Cindy Spooner

After my 2nd trip with AFS, I am compelled to write this and hope anyone thinking of trying this group travel but reluctant to do so, will read my note. I have always dreamed of going to Rome, but did not think I would find my way there until I retired and kids grown. Thanks to Suzy and Terry offering this fun and professional option to travel, I made to Rome before retirement and still with kids at home. We had a wonderful Tour Guide, Tricia who was very patient and understanding to my fears, and lack of European travel experience. Tricia gathered us up at JFK and greeted everyone with a smile. Off to Italy we went and had a wonderful time and met some amazing people. I want to also add that people who travel with AFS will care about you and help you have a fun and to have a positive experience. A big shout out of gratitude to Kathi, Ralph, Cheryl, Howard, and Jennifer who came to my rescue when my American Express did not work and was left with no way to get Euros. This was frightening to me, but very quickly relieved of my fears when others jumped in to help me. I can’t believe how nice everyone was not only to me, but to one another. Both trips that I have been on with AFS have left me with wonderful memories, new friendships, and a craving for more! Thank you Suzy and Terry and can’t wait until next year’s trips are announced. – Karen Scileny

I have been traveling with Suzy and Terry for the last 6 years and all I can say is that each adventure tops the last. I have visited Angkor Wat and played with live tigers. I have treked in the mountains of Rwanda/Uganda searching for gorillas and chimpanzees. I have visited the Holy lands and climbed the Great Wall of China and played with pandas. But nothing prepared me for the wonderous experience of petting a wild baby grey whale while the mother watched just yards away. Suzy, I know I tell you this everytime but you have once again outdone yourself. This was the most awesome trip ever!!!! You rock. Thank you for allowing me to share in these adventures and the many that will come. You have opened my eyes and heart to so many wonders the world has to offer. I will never get enough!! Till the next great adventure! Virginia Cochran

The Sea of Cortez trip was amazing! It exceeded our expectations! We got to swim with sea lions, pet wild baby whales and help with the conservation effort for sea turtles. I couldn\’t have asked for a more amazing trip! Thank you Suzy and Terry for putting this trip together! What an amazing organization! – Tanya Threewitt

What a great trip Suzy put together for Lapland.  No need to be afraid of the cold weather!! Three of the days we were in super snowsuits when we were outside for 6 hours.  I have never been so warm inside.  The glass igloos were magical. Loved the variety of outdoor activities-snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing, snowmobiling- it was awesome.  Another great trip with 33 wonderful people. Margo Bailey

Just returned from Turkey, my 6th trip. As usual Suzy and AFS put together an awesome trip. Salanda, our trip leader, was terrific and Gigi, our tour guide was absolutely the best! The travel group was interesting and fun – part of the pleasure of these trips is meeting new people and getting reacquainted with folks from earlier trips. We saw and experienced beauty and antiquity throughout the country and an Istanbul that was an exciting and cosmopolitan city steeped in history. I am looking forward to my next trip to Sri Lanka and Singapore! – Julie Cunningham

Just back from Chocolate Cows – Switzerland Gone Wild! Suzy planned a great and unique trip and Tricia was a wonderful GTL. Where else would we have a yodeling bus driver to entertain us all week. This was my 3rd AFS trip and I always come home with great memories and lots of new friends to travel with. – Kelly Hester

ust returned from Italy II. The group was a lot of fun and interesting to be with. The itinerary had something for everyone to enjoy and the enthusiastic tour guides in each beautiful city helped us to know the history before we wandered off to enjoy the food, wine and shopping. Greg our tour leader was the best. Given that we were group of 38 with different personalities, etc., he always had a smile and a solution. This is my second \”Suzy\” trip and I look forward to others Marie Buckley Marie Buckley

Just returned from Unseen Italy #1 and it was a truly magical experience. Everything far surpassed my expectations from the incredibly beautiful scenery, the guides who so enriched the experience by bringing history to life, the warmth and humor of our group leader, Robert Carman, and the congeniality of our travel mates. The whole experience was awesome in the literal sense of the word! Patty Jordan

I wanted you to know how AMAZING the South Africa trip was. I was so nervous about traveling that far from home and was worried it would be a little too ‘rustic’ for me. Well, in the end, I just loved every minute of it. The accommodations were great. Kwa Madwala was the best – beautiful, beautiful setting. Staff was very friendly. The Beehive huts were a bit rustic but were still very comfortable. Food was terrific everywhere. The daily activities were all packed with adventure. LOVE those chimps. The last-minute optional game drive at Hlane National Park in Swaziland was unbelievable. The drivers are permitted to drive off the road into the bush – not so at Kruger. The things we saw there were National Geographic worthy. Swaziland is the most beautiful country and the people and culture are so interesting. You could do an entire trip just to Swaziland. And I must mention how phenomenal Nicki was. She is soooo good at this and the sweetest person ever. You should use her again and again. I will definitely return to Africa for a new adventure. June Hansen

To sum it up this was an AMAZING trip!!! From start to finish, everything we had the opportunity to experience was fun & will be some of my best lifetime memories… From wildlife encounters/game drives in Kruger & Hlane Royal National Parks (my personal favorite) , as well as at Ubhetyan-O-Africa and Kwa Madwala, to learning about & observing the Chimpanzees at Jane Goodall\’s Chimp eden, riding elephants at Elephant Whispers, hiking the Hippo Trail and staying in the \”beehive huts\” in Swaziland and visiting local craft markets & Mantenga cultural village, our agenda was packed with non-stop fun & adventure. Our leaders were exceptional, and the group of 35 travelers meshed so well, that it made this 1st time AFS experience for me great and I can\’t wait to book my next trip for 2013. I would highly recommend a trip with AFS and especially S. Africa/Swaziland as a destination. Alissa Oxenfeldt

Another fantastic trip! I can not say enough good things about all the trip leaders that managed to fall into place for these trips! Our guide …was with us the entire trip could not have been more pleasant…knowledgeable, charismatic, witty and passionate…The entire staff…was always helpful. The trek was completed and we had a great time! Thanks again Suzy. I can’t imagine my life w/o these trips and look forward every year to see what is going to be on the list! Katie Cafferty

Four days – three nights hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu! I call it \”Glamour Camping\”. Two outfitters and 22 porters carried the supplies to the campsite. The porters set-up and broke down each campsite and greeted you upon your arrival. Day one was a 7 miles hike outfitters called flat; we called it \”Peruvian flat\”. Mostly up and down. Day 2 was to a beautiful 14,000 foot mountain pass. Day 3 was a 10 miles hike mostly downhill, again \”Peruvian flat\”. Day 4 we woke around 4:45 am to begin the final 2-1/2 miles hike to Machu Picchu. We arrived at the Sun Gate around dawn where we were greeted with a beautiful sunrise. It was an emotional moment to see Machhi Pichu! Afterwards we rode the train back to Cusco for a well needed shower and a warm bed. It was an incredible trip! Gregory Hiebert

This trip was hands down the most amazing African experience I have had yet, and I have visited seven countries on the continent! It was a blast! It is amazing how quickly you can bond with your fellow travelers and the Bushman experience was like being a Rock Star in a National Geographic film. Click, click, click, click….keep up the good work so we can continue to make new friends and experience travel to new, exotic places. Looking forward to Madagascar! Linda Stalvey

We had a wonderful time in Botswana. A great small group of unique individuals made it fun! Can’t wait to do another trip! Vija Ilze Pukulis Carney

I had no idea how I would fit in with an unknown group of men and women and travel with them for days on end. My anxiety was soon put to rest. Everyone I met was friendly and open. We shared meals, experiences, travels and our hopes and expectations together. There was not a time that I did not feel part of the group. I enjoyed the travel and people. The trip far exceeded my expectations. Suzie and Terry thank you for helping to make this a great trip. – Ed Brent

What an amazing trip. Ship in full sails, great food, beautiful places, but best of all new friends. Suzy and Terry are the consummate hosts. Very impressed how personal they treated each of us, in our large group. I actually overheard Suzy identifying everyone’s bag on the luggage carousel. – Mary A Courtney

After traveling with AFS for 12 years and 25 trips, you still amaze me… Cry of the Kalahari was one of your most creative and original trips yet! As one who loves Africa, this trip tops the charts… the beauty of the African bush and the Delta, the sound of the lions at night, the cultural connection with the Bushmen, the FABULOUS accommodations along with the incredible hospitality we received at each of the camps, and the wonderful group of friends to share it all with. All I can say is THANK YOU and I\’m looking forward to the next one!!! I appreciate YOU and all you do! Carol Huntington

I had to keep pinching myself to make sure I wasn\’t dreaming!! Adrienne Seelig

Tall Ship Sun Splash was my first AFS trip. Sailing in the Caribbean on a \”Mega Yacht\” with all the fine furnishings of a 5 star hotel (and then some). This trip was a floating paradise. Great friendships, fine dining, and wonderful excursions. Terry and Suzy, this was a first class act. Very Many Thanks, Kim Reddington

AFS did another outstanding job of putting together a fabulous adventure for an amazing price. It was my third trip with AFS and all three trips were as advertised and exceeded expectations. Terry and Suzie are quality people and they enjoy what they do and take great pride in putting together memorable trips. I highly recommend them. George Drake

The Tall Ship Trip on the Royal Clipper was amazing. We had great group of singles, gorgeous locations, and a wonderful crew on the ship taking care of us. Best Vacation yet! Kelly Hester

I had the most amazing trip and have come back and told everyone at work. This trip exceeded my expectations and I will forever be fortunate that I had the opportunity to attend. The group that I was with were so friendly and welcomed me into the group as a newbee. I now understand why your clientele are repeat customers. Not only are the relationships warm and caring, the destination was fabulous! Cathy Dillard

Awesome Tall Ship Experience! Kelly Hester

You folks have done it once again. What a fabulous trip! I am going to have to make room in my Top 5 Trips for this one…thanks to AFS, it\’s sure getting crowded up there. Debra Harrell

Thanks for an awesome trip to Japan & Hong Kong! Our 3 tour guides were so professional & had great personalities! I loved the way AFS handled all the details – everything was well-organized and very efficient. Our travel group for single women and men was great – lots of interesting, fun people! My only criticism is the day we went to Mt Fuji, rode the cable cars, took a boat cruise & rode on 2 trains. There was so much crammed into 1 day which made it feel so rushed. I look forward to taking another AFS trip soon!

Thank you for the fabulous trip to Asia! This was my first adventure with your group and I loved it! What a great opportunity to see far away places with people who have the same interests! Susan Shellsburg

Greetings to all my fellow India travelers. I really enjoyed our time together and want to wish you all many more exciting future adventures. Thank you for making our journey so very special. Ciao, Anne Marie

Suzy\’s itineraries are amazing! You get to see what most people go to see and then \’wait…there\’s more\’!!! We came across other groups throughout India but NONE, I mean NONE, had gone to Pushkar for the camel fair. It was VERY fun to fill them in on our adventure!! Tricia M

Awesome Adventure!!! Lions,zebras,elephants, and giraffes in their natural environment. A wonderful time was had by all. This was my tenth trip, and many more are in the works. Every trip is a connection with nature and the people that live there. Thanks Terry and Suzy for fulfilling my life- Pamela Winfield

Thank you for putting together another great trip. I think this one topped Africa and I didn’t think that was possible. Trish did a great job in leading…We also had the best guides that I have ever seen. Sandy and Harsh went beyond the call of duty to make this a trip to remember. … We had a great group of people which made the trip even more enjoyable. All I can say is WOW, what an experience. Kathy L

I recently did my first trip with AFS – to Japan and Hong Kong. It was wonderful! I\’ve never met a nicer group of people than my travel group and guides. And our trip leader, Kevin, did an outstanding job. All told it was an experience of a lifetime. Thank you very much AFS! Brent Torgrimson

Hard to know where to start – the guides in each city; Yama in Tokyo, Mickey in Kyoto and Joyce in Honk Kong – were phenomenal. And just when the trip couldn\’t get any better; the optional 1-day excursion to mainland China – put the cherry on top of the sundae. THANK YOU for a lifetime worth of memories! Holly Baldwin

I was on this trip with my sister and we had a BLAST. I travel extensively for work and personal so have seen a lot of the world – and I would say this trip was one of the best ones. No doubt it was due to the thoughtful planning that you and your team put into this (I hear amazing things about you – you’re a bit of a legend from what I can tell from people who have traveled with you before). The amount and diversity of things we did and saw was quite impressive. It was the perfect balance between being on the go – jumping from place to place – and downtime. Thank you so much for making this experience a great one! – Jenic M.

The trip to Italy was so much fun. I really enjoyed all of the things we saw and experienced as well as the people in the group. This was not my first experience traveling in Europe but was the first time with a group, and I can not say enough about the great experience that I had. I am looking forward to traveling again with AFS. Thank you Suzie and Terry for all the hard work you did to plan and execute such an amazing trip. – Linda Stalvey

This was my first trip to Italy and about the 20th trip with Suzy\’s Adventures for Singles. Each day was filled with adventure, seeing the sights of Cinque Terra on the Italian Riviera and Monte Carlo. We travelled by motor coach and by boat with a fun loving and congenial group, and always had a professional local guide. The afternoon at the winery was very informative, followed by a delightful wine tasting and superb lunch. As always, AFS delivered its promises, and we were never disappointed. This trip will remain in my heart forever. Thank you Suzy & Terry, Adventures for Singles, for making this happen. Ciao! Jo

Just wanted you to know that I had a wonderful, wonderful time in Italy! I met some lovely people and really enjoyed Rapallo , Santa Margherita , Lucca and our very special trip to Cinque Terre! I was lucky enough to have a terrific roommate and I haven\’t laughed so much in years! Becoming acquainted with your company and the many wonderful trips you plan, seems to have opened a whole new world for me. Until now, I always had this yearning to see the \” world\” and now I feel as if I have a safe outlet in which to do so! Priscilla B

I just want to let you both know that I had the most amazing time of my life and have never seen as many breathtaking sites as I did in the 10 days that I was in Italy. I still can\’t believe that I have been to Italy!!! I also cannot believe how amazingly organized this trip was. It was so nice to just show up when you told us to and viola’ you would whisk us away to amazing places…you two are awesome!!! Can\’t wait to book my next trip. Joyce Pierce

I have traveled with AFS for many years now. Every time I take a trip I think \’This is the best trip ever!\’ – then I go on the next one and it\’s even better. Suzy and Terry\’s travel enthusiasm is contagious. People marvel at the places I’ve been: Romania to Borneo – and I tell them how lucky I was to discover AFS: the hidden gem of single group travel! Holly Baldwin

Where did you find such good suppliers and endless energy?- L. Trudeu

Truly the best vacation I ever had and been praising your organization to everyone. J. Moody

d Absolutely outstanding! Our accommodations, meals and safari guides were the best. On a scale of 1 to 10, this was 11. Never had a better vacation in my life. I’m hooked. J. Giles

I’ve had the best year of my life with AFS trips. Thank you for your dedication to detail and your knack for making everyone seem special. I never felt unsafe in these foreign places. The world isn’t as scary as I imagined. Thank you for opening the door. B. Crites

I so appreciate your graciousness, exuberance, and professionalism in management. M. Walker

What an adventure once again with AFS! I never laughed so much nor imagined that I’d meet so many fun people in one group. What a great mix. J. Corey

It was a pleasure as always to travel with you. You make me feel safe and secure and I’ve met so many wonderful people on the 3 trips that I’ve now been on. I can’t wait to travel with you again…the difficulty is that I want to go on ALL of them… Great job, great friends, great places to stay, great camaraderie…..what else can I say except MUCHAS GRACIAS! B. Whitley

You have a special quality of putting our travel in the right sequence and bringing together such a fun group of people. You make these trips so great! H. Zwanikken

Thank you for another outstanding trip…with your hard work and energy, it was simply outstanding. L. Edkins

Thank you for providing a wonderful trip of a lifetime. P. Butler

Since this was my first trip I didn’t know what to expect. I honestly don’t think I could have had a better time. This is definitely one of my best vacations ever. R. Ladewick

As a first timer, I had no idea what to expect and everything exceeded my expectations. I’m already recruiting other single friends to join in the adventures too. AFS is awesome! L. Stevens

Thank you so much for a great trip that was extremely well planned and was much, much fun! I particularly enjoyed making new friends… Thanks so much for the many, many extras…This was my first trip with AFS, and I look forward to traveling with you in the future. S. Neubert

Enjoyed the trip. Visited fantastic places in various ways – planes, trains, boats, taxies and elephants!!! Met wonderful people. Thank you for all your time and effort. Plan to see you next year. P. Hecht GA

Not only do you provide a phenomenal vacation in a luxury setting, you blended a group of strangers who became friends in less than a week! My hat’s off to you for perfect planning K. Caldwell

Our first trip with you was exceptional – the best ever. Your professionalism, hard work and travel knowledge knows no bounds. Best yet, I met my husband on your trip! Together we look forward to our next trip with you. L. Cohen

I will only plan my future vacations with AFS A. Martello

Thanks again for a ‘trip of a lifetime and the group was great! You work hard to help us have a good vacation. I continue to tell my friends how wonderful they are. F. Cochran

Thank you again for a wonderful time in Costa Rica. It was fabulous and as always, first class “Suzy trip”. The 5-Star pampering was a real treat, the most luxurious I have ever experienced L. Edkins

I want you to know the (Asia) trip changed my life. Can’t believe it was only 10 days. I love surrounding myself with people who live life passionately. You are one of those! G. Peterson Once again, I was not disappointed. Your planning, attention to detail and personal touch keeps bringing me back to AFS year after year. M. Bender

I’m an independent world traveler and was hesitant to book a group tour. Africa with AFS exceeded all my preconceived ideas. You delivered more than promised. The best part was returning home with a whole new set of friends. It was a life-changing experience! C. Wagner

You really deliver on your promise of quality product, trip after trip. I always say it can’t get any better this and it does! H. Benton

What a gift to not only have such a wonderful trip but to discover the likes of you TWO! What amazing individuals you are and I am blessed to trudge the road to happy destiny with you. P. Collins

Wow! This was more than a trip. It was a combination of your talents that made a well rounded week of adventure, relaxation and fellowship. Your efforts exceeded my expectations N. Crosby

Holy shit, I had a blast! Thank you.” (This note was accompanied by a bouquet of roses.) G. Grantham

I can’t thank you enough for the great time I had in Switzerland. I would have never seen so much had it not been for your perfect itinerary. Will definitely recommend you to others!- J. Rhoades

It’s been 2 weeks home and I’m still on a high! I don’t know how you draw such like-minded people. And you treat each person special whereas other company’s treat them like commodities – it felt like a family vacation.- R. Koon GA

Jambo Suzy & Terry. Many thanks for my best trip ever! I’ve traveled extensively around the world and lived on a boat in the Bahamas, but this trip was definitely the most fun and memorable experience of my life. You do a great job of bringing joy to peoples lives. – C. Roberts

I wanted to drop you a note and tell you what a great time I had on the India trip…I’m a buyer so I’m skeptical when things sound ‘too-good-to-be-true’, but AFS delivered exactly as promised. Actually it was better than promised. I have been telling anyone willing to listen (friends, business contacts, coworkers, and family) the details of my recent adventure since returning. I realize that AFS is growing …be sure to keep that small-business, appreciate-you-as-a-customer, hands-on, personalized touch that was apparent on this trip. I like the way AFS handled things. Having used the big-boys (Globus, Brenden, and Delta Dream) it is now apparent how much a value this personalized touch adds to a trip. – R. Koon

After having some time to reflect on my travels with you this past year I’d like to share my thoughts. The first being that your organization and planning keeps everyone on track without you having to be a ‘Mother Hen’. You treat your groups like adults and people seem to respond as adults. You also have a knack for making everyone seem special. That’s a quality my father had and it’s a admirable trait that is hard to cultivate. Kudos to you. Another item is, even though we did travel to some “very” foreign places (like Pushkar vs. say, England), I never felt unsafe or at odds with my surroundings. But the most important realization I came to is that world travel is not nearly as scary as I had imagined it could be. Thank you. Thank you for being there to open the door, I’ve had the best year of my life. I’m looking forward to my trips the upcoming year. Warmest Regards to both you and Terry, – B Crites

Your dedication made this trip such a success! You guys have endless to deal with each person individually and I’m amazed how thorough you are.-  L. Babitts

A ‘vampire-licious’ thank you for the fabulous Transylvania trip and for making it so affordable – D. Arnison

Another perfect trip Suzy. You scored a perfect 10!  – Jo Burns

Thank you so much for all of your planning, preparation and making it happen. I’ve already been passing along your website to others with the highest of recommendation and will be checking on the upcoming trips for myself.. – Mille Grazie C. Vines

This trip was absolutely incredible for me and truly one of the best experiences of my life. Not only seeing fascinating, beautiful Italy of which I love and want to return to, but meeting and sharing the experience with people that I now consider true, lifelong friends. Anon

I must tell you how glad I am to have encountered you a few years ago and for the AFS trips I’ve taken. You run a class operation and have made me feel like I’m part of your ‘travel family.’ I marvel at your cheerfulness. Thank you for opening new doors to the world. I hope you stay in business a very long time. – M. Walden

Last month’s trip was the best adventure trip ever for me and a group of wonderful friends that I will remember and cherish a lifetime. Thank you both for all of your hard work and taking care of us before, during and after our adventure. I have complete trust and faith in both of you and am so blessed to have traveled and come to know you as friends. On my own, I could never have planned such a trip with the diverse and memorable friends you coordinated for all of us. This is why I come back year after year. – B. Kelley

Fantastic experience in Dubai & Cairo Suzy! I felt like royalty staying in such elegant hotels. I can’t believe how much we covered in 8 days, yet never felt rushed and still enough free time to explore on our own – J. Shultz

Suzy and Terry, Thank you for a Great Trip to Kenya. You went above and beyond and it has far exceeded all expectations. We have always enjoyed traveling with your company, and this Trip was not Exception! Again,……Thank you! 🙂 – Bryan White

Suzy, you are the OPRAH of TRAVEL! Words can’t express my gratitude for the Kenya trip. – Wendy Trenchard

Italy was a dream for me….and this trip only proved that there is so much more of Italy to discover. Thanks to Suzy and Terry for a great trip, well planned and implemented. I have made even more new friends on this, my 3rd \”Suzy\” trip. Loved every minute! – Denise Baldwin

Suzy & Terry, While Africa was on my bucket list, it was not necessarily at the to of my list. AFS offers several different African country opportunities which is wonderful. I just returned from my first safari in Kenya. Beyond amazing is how to best describe this trip!! It far exceeded my expectations! The first game drive produced so many different and plentiful animals that I was fully satisfied, feeling that anything more would simple be icing on the cake. Each following day and game drive produced even more thrilling experiences! How do you top a cheetah jumping on a safari van?! And yet, we did! Every day brought an even more incredible experience! Kenya, the bountiful animals, and best of all, positive AFS community of like minded fellow travelers made my FIRST Africa trek soo memorable! I immediately wait listed for my next Africa experience just a couple days into my Kenya Safari! My fingers are crossed! Suzy & Terry, you deliver exciting experiences & lifetime memories! I couldn’t sleep the first few nights because of all the excitement! – Janina Dionisio

Just returned from Forks & Corks in Italy with Suzy and a great group of experienced and fun travelers. I can’t believe how many unique experiences we had in just a week…from tortellini to chocolates and parmigiana to vino. We toured beautiful little towns plus Florence and Bologna and I left my heart in Tuscany. Can’t wait for Australia and Borneo in 2015. AFS is THE way to tour as a single! Franette Armstrong

This was my first AFS trip. My nerves quickly dissipated upon arrival at the first lovely old and charming hotel in Modena. From this point things only got better, if indeed that was possible! Suzy, Terry, Joann (Guide from the heavens) and wonderful Stefano (driver) took this large exuberant group to magical places filled with amazing food journeys, mystical wine cellars, lots of prosciutto and breathtaking landscapes. Italy is more than beautiful-BUT Suzy thought of EVERYTHING, and then some! Fear not those skeptical about booking with AFS- pack your bags (lightly- leaving room for your purchases) and sit back and enjoy the wonder, love and expertise known as Suzy!! Thank you Suzy- you have opened my heart and mind and filled it with love, gratitude and a forever friendship with you!! Love – Dee Sternlieb

I returned from my 8th AFS trip last week and am still reveling in the beauty of the sights and sounds from the Elephant Whisperer trip. From the tent at Thula Thula where I would wake up to birds and monkeys greeting the sun to the thatched cottage at Thonga Beach Lodge where I could see the Indian Ocean from my bed, each day brought new discoveries and fun. Thank you for what was the best trip ever. I don\’t think I will ever have a better birthday! You found the perfect roommate for me and the time you spend in researching the locations and preparing the itineraries is greatly appreciated. I look forward to the 2015 trips! – Sheila Sandford

Just returned from another amazing AFS trip to the beautiful Greek Islands. It was everything I had imagined and more. Suzy I am grateful for all your hard work in putting together these wonderful adventures. Our GTL was the lovely Margo. She always has a smile and is available to anyone who needs her. A beautiful joyful spirit and makes everyone feel at ease. It was great catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. All that is part of the adventure. Thank you once again and I look forward to the 2015 adventures. – Kathleen Colleran

Suzy & Terry…..I just wanted to express my extreme pleasure and appreciation for the work you put into your trips. I have now gone on two (Bali & South Africa/Mozambique) and have enjoyed every single minute. I have been fortunate to travel the world plenty on my own and continue to do so so was hesitant at first to join a \”group\” – especially a large one like yours. But your itineraries and prices were just too tempting to ignore and I\’m so glad that I did. You really put together packages that have wonderful experiences, superb accommodations, affordable pricing and the \”large\” groups are full of old-time friends, new ones that are quickly brought into the fold and overall wonderful, wonderful people. Its nice for me to travel on my own but I sure love to travel with friends too and even after only two trips – I now have a large group of friends. Thank you for all of that so I will continue to grab up a space on your trips (if I\’m fortunate enough to get in before they fill up) and see the world with you as well. PS – I\’m signed up for China and Lapland with you too and I can\’t wait…..I am soooooooo excited. And eagerly awaiting your announcement of the 2015 trips….please hurry. 🙂 – Jennie Toale

Hi Suzy- This trip was an amazing itinerary – I think we all enjoyed being able to enjoy the safari on both days. Guides were fabulous & I didn’t really have any expectations.  Just hoping to see some wildlife. We saw rhinos, elephants, lions, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, wildebeest, etc. all within 20 feet of the jeep. Still gives me chills to think about how incredible it was to see them in their own environment & free & THAT close up. Unreal.   Our guide felt we must have brought good karma & expectations on our drives as we got to see a lot:)  Loved the tree lodge! Food was fabulous (loved the outdoor dining)  & accommodations really nice. White Pearl was outstanding in every way. How great to unwind @ that beach after the go-go-go vibe of game drives. PERFECT. Loved everything about White Pearl.  Food, atmosphere, drinks, staff, accommodations.  Being 41 & single, I felt like I was on my own single honeymoon that I took myself on, in being able to experience that kind of luxury resort:) We had a great time meeting new friends on this one:) Thanks again for another life changing adventure!!!!!! Peace & hugs- Amy Allen

Hi, Suzy!  I wanted you to know how wonderful the Namibia trip was!  First of all, it is such a beautiful country – I don’t know where to begin!   We stayed at wonderful places and the itinerary was incredible – we saw so much of the country as we were traveling from place to place. We had amazing adventures – from our visit with the Himbas, our Safari in Etosha,  our tour of Walvis Bay, our fly-overs, the quads on the dunes, the incredible wonders in Twyfelfontein – too many to list here! But travelling with a group of adventurous, fun-loving, kind-hearted people is what truly made this trip so special! Our GTL Roxie did a fantastic job of working to make sure that all went well So – thank you, thank you, thank you — I look forward to my next adventure and seeing some of my new traveling friends again! -Rosemarie

Hi Suzy & Terry, Great New Zealand trip! Awesome way to celebrate my 30th AFS adventure. Never disappointed. Thanks, – Bob H
