The best trip of our lives!

Reviewed By Lynn - Freehold, New Jersey | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Lea Rufo is without question the best travel agent I have ever worked with! She was well prepared for our intimate group by researching and communicating with us from the time our words were only thoughts until we returned from a fabulous amd memorable vacation in Ireland. She thought of everything. A dream came true for one of our friends who wanted to explore and gather information regarding her Irish ancestry. She still talks about it and attributes it all to our wonderful travel agent Lea. She is very passionate about her clients and goes above and beyond making sure everyone is happy and pleased with the work that she does. Lea is always pleasant and cares about her work and the people she works for. I have used her on more than one occasion and she never fails to amaze. We are looking forward to booking another adventure with this amazing travel agent Lea Rufo!

The best travel consultant!

Reviewed By Elvie - Copperas Cove, TX | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
Lea is the best! She's professional and very attentive to her customers' travel needs. She coordinated two of our recent Globus trips and has always provided exemplary follow through to ensure that we have the best travel experience. She takes that extra step to make sure that when we arrive at our destination that we are equipped with the right maps and information to show the best places to eat, shop, etc. around our hotel areas during our 'at leisure' times. No other travel consultant does that! She gives you her undivided attention -- always makes us feel as if we're the only customers she's working with at the time - unlike other travel companies where customer service stops once you've paid your fare. She takes much of the stress out that sometimes comes with making travel arrangements. She even welcomes you back upon your return. We highly recommend Lea----she's a real pleasure to work with...a true gem! Thank you, Lea!

A travel advisor who truly cares

Reviewed By Felicia - Richmond, California | Traveled to Manila ~ Philippines ~ East and Southeast Asia
I can’t express how grateful I am to Lea Rufo. She booked my flight to Manila and I was amazed that she went far and beyond her usual duties for me. First, I had mentioned to her how I have been having issues with my feet swelling every time I travel by plane and so she suggested that a seat at the bulk head where there is plenty of legroom just for an additional payment of $80? I wouldn’t have known about that and it really made my flight experience much more comfortable. Secondly, my flight was very late in the evening which got delayed twice and she was kind enough to check on me considering I am in the West Coast and she is in the East coast. Since then I have been recommending Lea to all my friends and family for their flights/bookings not to mention hotel accommodations and tours. Truly grateful to have found an amazing travel advisor in Lea who not only is dedicated to her work but would go far and beyond to help others have stress-free bookings and and comfortable flights.
