To make this step easier, we put together a list of the top things to consider when filling out the Pack Up + Go pre-trip survey so that our travel agents can plan a great surprise trip that matches your travel preferences!

Testimonial Tuesday: Bailey + Matthew

Testimonial Tuesday: Bailey + Matthew

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

A: To take stress off of my plate! A nice, relaxing, romantic weekend.

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

A: Yes, I think mainly because I like to know what’s going on + I am such a planner!

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

A: I actually guessed Chicago or Seattle so I was thrilled when we opened and saw it said Chicago.

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

A: I really didn’t know too much aside from the comedy scene!

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

A: We had asked for somewhere with comedy and live music - Chicago was perfect. They also made sure we had a fun activity for my birthday!

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

A: Holy wow, the hotel was the best we’ve ever stayed in + now we’re Kimpton reward members. We were blown away!

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

A: We loved all the recommendations but, specifically, Buddy Guy’s for live blues. We actually got to meet him + I danced with him as they sang happy birthday. It was a magical night!

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

A: I wouldn’t stress at all pre-trip because now I know we’re in good hands.

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

A: I feel like you guys nailed it with the itinerary but, I’d say just telling people to branch out from downtown is important. Downtown is great but, it’s a little expensive and we had some really great meals + experiences when we went out further into the city!

Q: What was your favorite part of your trip?

A: Everything, it was honestly the best trip we’ve ever been on together.

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

A: We’ve told everyone we know how incredible it was to experience a destination that we might not have picked for ourselves + ended up having the time of our lives!

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

A: That Pack Up + Go is the best way to take a few days off from being in charge.

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

A: Just do it. Don’t think about the ‘what ifs’ - Pack Up + Go is there for you to answer your questions but, they will handle everything for you!
