Custom Holidays

Making Lifetime Memories... 

Sue Biggs, CITM, CTP (Owner)

Sue began her company in 1986 as Christian Holidays and her first tour was escorting 26 friends to Hawaii.  Sue then took a travel agent's course and discovered that her training would qualify her to take people all around the world as a tour escort! The company became Custom Holidays after a few years and currently offers approximately 200 days of touring annually.

Sue is a proud member of the Travel Alliance Partners, where she serves on the Marketing Committee and is chair of the Guaranteed Departures. Sue is a Certified International Tour Manager as well as a Certified Tour Professional.

Ron Biggs

Sue's husband, Ron, was in the Marine Corps for 20 years and retired as a band director of one of the field bands. During their time in the service, they were stationed on the east coast and the west coast. Upon retirement, Ron finished his college education graduating with a degree in Sacred Music. Ron took a job as Minister of Music at a church in Allen Park, Michigan which he worked at for several years. He currently runs a piano tuning business and works in the office on all of our accounting & financials. He loves travel, and enjoys escorting tours with Custom Holidays - especially to the Detroit Symphony Orchestra!

Amy Garcia, CITM

Amy Garcia, Sue’s daughter, has recently joined the Custom Holidays team. Amy lives in Nashville, Tenn., and her background in graphic design and business marketing helps us focus on communicating with our current customers and bringing in more travelers in 2018. Since graduating from the International Guide Academy as a Certified International Tour Manager in February 2017, she also escorts various tours for Custom Holidays. Although you won’t see her in the office, may see her on some of our upcoming trips including the Canary Islands Cruise, Ireland, and Christmas Markets on the Rhine. Being part of the Biggs family has definitely given Amy the travel “bug” and when not traveling around the world, she is home enjoying time with her two kids, Maddi (22) and Max (14).
