Testimonial Tuesday: Leorah + Allison

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

A: My bestie + I take a trip every year for our birthdays and we thought this was a cool idea. We wanted an adventure!

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

A: I think we were mostly just excited. Although we were occasionally a little worried that we would get sent somewhere lame because we could only do the lowest budget option.

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

A: We guessed a few places, based on the weather report. Actually, several of our friends guessed our destination correctly, too, so we weren’t SUPER surprised about it, but definitely excited for the unveiling.

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

A: We were excited. One of us had been before as a kid, but we knew that it had a reputation for being a pretty hip city.

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

A: Our PU+G agent was so nice. She really tailored everything to us very well and communicated with us a lot. Plus, we were traveling for both our birthdays and we got some wonderful surprises - like champagne from the hotel + a gift card to a nearby wine bar.

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

A: Our hotel was great. I love that the Kimpton hotels have a happy hour in the evenings in the lobby, and I thought this particular hotel was really cool and funky. Plus, it was located almost downtown, so we walked almost everywhere. 

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

A: Loved the foodie tour of Pike Place Market!! It was so fun to try all the different foods and hear about the history of everything.

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

A: When we found out where we were going I texted some friends who lived there. We got brunch which was great and also ended up getting together at night. I think with such a sort trip it’s hard to do everything, so if we did it again I’d probably stick to one non-itinerary meal.

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: I think the Chihuly Glass Museum + the Pike Place Market foodie tour were my favorite parts. But traveling with my bestie is always fun, especially when so much of the trip is celebrating and drinking wine!

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

A: Seattle is a lot like Denver!

Q: How would you describe Pack Up + Go and your experience to your Family and Friends?

A: It was a great way to do a short, domestic adventure. It a totally new way to travel for me, since I’m usually the planner for trips.

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

A: They’ll take care of you. It’s totally worth it!

Testimonial Tuesday: Paige + Dan

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

A:  It was an anniversary gift to me from my boyfriend. We were looking to take a trip just for ourselves that didn’t involve traveling to see family or weddings.

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

A: I was very nervous. Being Type A, it’s hard to relinquish control, but it was also freeing not having to plan anything.

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

A: We thought we for sure were going to the East Coast. I thought Philly + Dan thought Boston. We were both shocked but in a very good way. :)

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

A: I don’t think we had any prior conceptions before our arrival.

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

A: We were on our own schedule. We could do whatever we wanted whenever we wanted to do it. Also, the suggestions felt catered to us by the fact that we love live music and specialty cocktails and there were great recommendations that we took advantage of in finding those two things in New Orleans.

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

A: The location in the city and the grandiose of the hotel.

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

A: The WWII museum and the Lafayette Cemetery were our favorite activities. Also riding the streetcar on St. Charles.

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

A: We would have left earlier on Friday and earlier on Sunday. 

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

A: We had dinner at two great spots: one was Amelie cafe in the French Quarter. It’s great farm-to-table with an amazing patio tucked back off of bourbon st. Also, Superior Seafood along St. Charles was delicious!

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: Being with each other and on our own schedule.

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

A: Letting go of the planning process was a challenge but it worked out for the best! Every second of a trip doesn’t need to be planned before arrival for it to be memorable.

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

A: Do it! The customer service is outstanding and they work so closely with you to ensure a proper fit for location and budget.

Where you have a romantic getaway?
