Customizing Cultural Adventures

Experiences feed my spirit and I intend to continuously expose myself to new adventures near & far. I’m not the type of person to spend much energy fantasizing about the places I’d like to go. I’d rather be the one who creates a way to bring dreams to fruition. I’m an avid traveler and my journeys have taken me around the world. I am always looking to find the hidden gems of a destination and I tend to lead myself off the beaten path. A few of my adventures have taken me swimming in the Dead Sea, standing at the equator, cruising on Ha Long Bay, climbing to the Monastery in Petra and glamping in the Arabian Desert. If we don’t decide to make it happen…we’re not going anywhere. So, Where to next? “The gladdest moment in human life, methinks, is a departure into unknown lands.” – Sir Richard Burton

Best Travel Service Ever

Reviewed By Twins fans in Boston - Cottage Grove, Minnesota | Traveled to Boston ~ Massachusetts ~ USA
Leslie was so helpful putting the Boston trip together for us. She gave us tips and information that made the trip so smooth. She arranged the flights and hotel, a car picked us up at midnight at the airport and took us right to our hotel. The arrangements were excellent-Leslie even had us staying at the same hotel the Minnesota Twins were at! Leslie was so good to work with, she answered all our questions and got answers for us when needed. We had a medical emergency the last day of our trip and missed our return flight home. With this delay, we had less than 48 hours to get home for a family funeral. We knew we had to get a new flight as quickly as possible. When no one else was able to help us, we called Leslie. Within an hour Leslie had a flight for us to ensure we would be home in time for the funeral. Without Leslie, we may have missed the funeral. Thank you Leslie for everything you did for our family.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Great Job!

Reviewed By Happy Cruiser - Lino Lakes, MN | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
I had an idea of the type of trip I wanted with no idea of where to go or how to start. We wanted activities. Not one to lay on the beach all day. Good Food & Drink. A variety of locations. No more than a 10 hour plane ride. No big hotels. No crowds. Something out of the ordinary. Leslie planned perfect trip. It couldn’t of been better. She selected an Hawaiian UnCruise. Small expedition ship. Only 18 cabins. Kayaking, snorkeling & swimming in waterfalls. Gourmet cuisine & craft cocktails. 4 Hawaiian islands without repacking our suitcases. Great job.
