Testimonial Tuesday: Emily + Austin

Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?

A: While craving a much needed get-away, I read about Pack Up + Go on a travel blog and was instantly hooked on the idea of a ‘surprise’ destination trip. I was hoping for a fun, new location that I’d never been, and I wasn’t disappointed!

Q: Did you have hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A:  My only worry was ending up somewhere that would be too similar to the trips we normally take. We were looking to explore somewhere with a different style, and Savannah was the perfect location to do so.

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: After getting our 'hints’, we were betting on Charleston, New Orleans, or Savannah. I was surprised overall by our destination, but after being there, I realized it was the perfect choice based on our initial survey answers.

Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some perceptions about your city prior to the trip?

A:  We were definitely expecting some serious HEAT in Savannah in July, but were excited about lots of great restaurants and bars, and charming historic locations.

image

Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?

A: Our survey answers were definitely taken into account. We love good food, hole-in-the-wall bars, and adventuring in new cities. Walkable Savannah offered all of that and more.

image

Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?

A: The location of our hotel was right near the center of everything. It was great being able to walk everywhere and not deal with Uber or renting a car!

Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?

A: We had a lot of fun going on a local ghost pub crawl, and seeing the historic sites around the city.

image

Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is shareworthy?

A: We decided to venture a bit further to the Wormsloe Plantation. The oak trees dripping with Spanish moss along the mile-long driveway were beautiful (and totally Instagram worthy!)

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: Getting able to experience a new location without the hassle of making our own travel arrangements was amazing. The ease of the process allowed us to focus on relaxing and having fun!

image

Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?

A: We learned a lot on the trip about the history of Savannah…but I also learned the importance of taking some time off to relax, reset, and just have fun.

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your friends and family?

A: Amazing team and an awesome experience!

Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway

A: Just trust in the process!! My boyfriend was hesitant and wanted to peak once we got our envelope, but ended up having a great time.

Testimonial Tuesday: Matthew + Sarah

Q: Why did you sign up for your trip? What were you looking to get out of it?

A: Go somewhere I have never been. Adventure, fun, new experiences.

Q: Did you have any hesitations about taking a surprise trip? Were you nervous?

A: Extremely nervous. That was part of the fun. For an entire month, my wife and I speculated on where we would go. It was a lot of fun. That experience was a big part of why we did it.

image

Q: Where did you guess you were going to travel? Were you surprised by the destination?

A: We thought it might be Charleston SC. We were very surprised. My wife has wanted to go to Savannah for some time. I just wanted to go somewhere I have never been and I was not disappointed.

Q: Upon discovery of your destination, what were some of your perceptions about the city prior to your trip?

A: It was very old, and lots of things to do and see. The food would be amazing and it was.

image

Q: What made the trip feel unique and tailored to you?

A: We got exactly what we wanted. We wanted an old city with lots of charm and good food. We wanted to get out into it and see it. We wanted to meet new people and have fun.

image

Q: What did you like most about your travel accommodations?

A: We didn’t spend much time there. The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. One amazing thing about the hotel was that they knew this was for my birthday and they left a beautiful note and a bottle of wine in our room. I specifically made sure to thank them for that.

Q: What was your favorite experience that we recommended for you?

A: Seeing all of the squares that Savannah had. The tour was worth the money. I wish we could have eaten at all of the restaurants that were recommended.

image

Q: What did you discover on your own (not on your itinerary) in your destination that you feel is share-worthy?

A: We didn’t really discover anything new. We wife and I both like haunted locations so we knew about Bonaventure Cemetery from various tv shows. That was the one thing we made sure we did.

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: #1 was the anticipation of where we would be going. #2 was just how easy it was. Made it very easy to just enjoy ourselves. Making travel and hotel plans are not fun at all. Since we didn’t have to do that we could concentrate on why we took the trip.

Q: If you could do the trip over again, what would you do differently?

A: Longer stay.

Q: What did you learn on your trip, or from your trip?

A: I am not too old to learn something and I still know how to have fun.

image

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your friends and family?

A: We have said it was the most fun we have had in a long time. From the minute I purchased the trip on your site the speculation began. For one month this was our main focus. “Where will they send us? Maybe here, definitely not there, what about here?” It was just like Christmas when I was a child. We loved it!

Q: What would you say to someone who is hesitant to go on a surprise getaway?

A: Take a chance. As life goes on you start regretting the things you didn’t do. Life can be summed up as 2 dates with a dash in the middle. Make that dash count!
