A trip to Greece was always on my bucket list. I was blessed to finally go in May 2019. Greece was absolutely phenomenal. The history and architecture are very intriguing. Mykonos is truly a treasure and was so enjoyable. I am not much on museums but the Acropolis Museum was one of the... Read more from my Greece May 2019 story.

It is a pleasure to work with Melinda, at Travel Leaders, when booking my upcoming travel needs. I know she helps countless people every day, but she always finds time to answer my call or promptly return my emails. She provides the personal touch you rarely find in today's frenetic pace. I recently had a travel mishap with the airlines canceling almost all of their flights into a particular city. Rather than stand in the long lines at the airport, Melinda was on the phone with me discussing my options. She then searched for an alternate flight plan and contacted the airline to get it booked. I made it to my destination and more importantly didn't miss my business meeting. Melinda Patton has my highest recommendation and continues to exceed my expectations.
Truly Dedicated Agent
Melinda was a big help to us! She promptly responded to all of our questions and concerns and always took care of the small details such as our dinner reservations and seat assignments. She worked very hard with the cruise line to get us the best price/value possible and really went above and beyond when she was booking back to back cruises for us. Thanks again Melinda!
Our permanent Travel Agent
Before Melinda I would usually just do research and bookings on my own, but I was always so worried about booking something incorrectly or getting the wrong dates for something. Next time around, we decided to go to Melinda to help plan our next vacation-an Oceania cruise through the Greek Isles and Mediterranean. She did such an excellent job of taking care of all the finer details-restaurant reservations, air travel-so we had no worries whatsoever. She would follow through with a phone call to make sure we arrived safely and on time and that our trip went as expected. So who are we getting to help plan our next trip to Australia and New Zealand? Melinda of course! We are truly indebted to her and I just can't say enough nice things about her.
I have used Travel Leaders in Danville for several vacations and they have never let me down. Melinda is a pleasure to work with and she has made our complex trips worry-free! I would strongly recommend Travel Leaders Danville and I would strongly recommend Melinda!
Melinda was immensely helpful in organizing two Sister Cities trips to Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, Danville’s Sister City. She is knowledgeable and has excellent ideas, such as planning at the Titanic Museum in Belfast a replica of the actual dinner served on that fateful ship the night before it went down.
