Susan Whitson - Owner & Travel Advisor

Susan has been designing and creating unique travel experiences since 2014, earning her the honor of being named a Conde Nast Top Travel specialist since 2020. Prior to joining the travel industry, Susan worked in government public relations and communications, including White House press secretary to Mrs. Laura Bush, with whom Susan traveled the globe and experienced some of the world’s most beautiful and culturally rich places, and made deeply meaningful personal connections.


Having traveled to 70+ countries on six continents and 49 US states (Nebraska still eludes her), Susan's expertise is planning trips to emerging destinations and creating unique, off-the-beaten path travel experiences specifically tailored for each client. She is most passionate about and has deep expertise planning travel in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, French Polynesia, Spain, Scotland, and South America. Honeymoons, multi-generational family trips, and adventure travel are also areas of Susan's expertise.  


When not exploring the world, Susan lives in the Virginia countryside with her family.

Lindsey Knutson - Travel Advisor

Although born and raised in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Lindsey quickly fell in love with diverse cultures, people and beauty in her travels to over 70 countries and all 50 states as Mrs. Laura Bush's personal aide. After serving in the White House, Lindsey directed the global community investments portfolio for Hunt Consolidated, Inc., a group of entities with activities in oil and gas, real estate and ranching. Prior to joining Susan Whitson Travel, Lindsey was the inaugural Director of Leadership Programs at the George W. Bush Institute. 


Lindsey can find a gem just about anywhere on the map, but she especially enjoys planning trips to Central and Eastern Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa. When Lindsey is not exploring and seeking the next exciting destination for clients, she enjoys spending time on the water with her husband and her two children in her native home state of Texas.
