Our first cruise...beyond our expectations

Reviewed By Sue - St. Paul MN | Traveled to Anchorage ~ Alaska ~ USA
This was our first cruise and we were clueless as to how to proceed with our plans. JoAnn was our life saver. From the first time we met with her until we sailed, she was our trip planner, advocate and mentor. From the time we arrived at MSP airport throughout our Vancouver arrival, transfers to the cruise line, boarding the ship, all on shore excursions and the final train ride into Anchorage and transfers back to the Anchorage airport and then home our trip was flawless. Because this was our first cruise we had numerous questions and concerns and JoAnn was extremely patient with us and basically explained how the entire process works and offered many options and suggestions. She was available to us whenever we needed to meet with her or contact her by phone. She kept us informed of any flight changes and time restrictions so we had ample time to make all of our connections. The call to wish us a good trip and the follow-up call when we returned were very special. Thank you

JoAnn Plans Our Best and First Cruise

Reviewed By Judy and Joe - Minnetonka | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
JoAnn is friendly and efficient. She met with us several times to plan our Alaskan cruise.
She gave several options choosing a ship line. She answered our many questions. She showed us options like choosing a beverage package and specialty meals package. She was knowledgeable about shore excursions.
She was patient with us about our indecision on choosing something. JoAnn is the most knowledgeable travel agent we've ever worked with. The cruise came off with no problems. I would definitely go back to JoAnn to plan my next trip/cruise. She scheduled flights. She did it ALL. What a caring person.
This gal is the BEST!

Travel Agent JoAnn was our savior!

Reviewed By Grateful Sandra - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
My sister and I traveled to Venice, Italy for a Greek Island Cruise in August, 2017. JoAnn made reservations for us with excellent results: transfer from airport to Venice hotel, hotel in Venice near ship port, and our Greek Island Cruise Ship. However, even more impressive was how JoAnn helped us in our time of need during a misadventure on our cruise, causing us to miss our ship. My sister tripped with a Coke bottle in her hand in a gift shop in Corfu, Greece and sustained a large laceration in her left palm. After an ambulance ride and stitches, they refused to release her because of her blood work. My sister has been fighting cancer for 10 years and has some chronic blood count issues. JoAnn was our shining star, navigating us through it all: making our plane reservations, giving me our travel insurance information, advising us in our challenging predicament. We were able to get back on the ship and enjoy the rest of our fabulous vacation. Thank you, JoAnn!

Beauty/Adventure--JoAnn helps/back on missed ship

Reviewed By Cindy - Eagan MN | Traveled to Santorini ~ Greece ~ Europe
My sister and I were in the middle of deciding when,where to take a cruise for my 60th bday. Met with JoAnn -she gave me info,brochures. We decided NCL for Greek cruise start in Venice. JoAnn answered all our questions thoughtfully. I especially liked if she did not know she was willing to pick up the phone and check.---we also changed type of room to balcony for one of us with her--no prob--my sister was only a few rooms away-this was late in game. JoAnn arranged van service to/from Venice. Loved the little hotel on canal in Venice she booked for us and yet a good price. We received all our documents etc needed. Did not have to wait for email responses,or to reach her.
--important in Corfu!!!! I tripped,fell on broken coke bottle with hand,needed stitches hospital.. We called her from Greece-she arranged plane reservations next day -- got to Santoriniand BACK ON BOAT AGAIN!! Recently visited her,asked her about remote beach in Greece--she said sure--I'll check on it. Going back.

Great cruise--thanks in part to JoAnn.

Reviewed By Gerry & Joyce - Wayzata, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Choosing our cruise to Alaska was somewhat intimidating. Several cruise lines do this tour with nearly identical itineraries. Every cruise line's website makes theirs sound wonderful. And we had three couples involved in the decision making process. So how does one sort it all out?

JoAnn met with the six of us, gave us her verbal impressions of the different cruise lines, and provided an excellent written summary based on criteria that were high on our list: age/size of ship, pricing for different types of cabins, etc. We met with her in her office, at which time she had all cruise lines' info up on her computer. This enabled her to answer our questions on the spot, which was extremely helpful.

JoAnn's resourcefulness helped us come to an informed decision and book our cruise before we left her office.

Excellent Experience

Reviewed By Jimi - OC, California | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
JoAnn was phenomenal. She was very involved with our European trip from start to finish. Being our first European vacation we had a long checklist full of destinations and wishes. She was able to work with us to create an outstanding vacation in which we accomplished an unbelievable number of experiences. We have had so many envious friends and relatives ask how we were able to accomplish so much and stay within our budget, our answer, "JoAnn's help!"

We have shared her contact information with a handful of friends already and eagerly recommend her to any one who asks about travel. We are so appreciative of all that she did to help us with our vacation and can't wait for the chance to work with her again! Maybe Spain, Scotland, Asia....? Hopefully it is sooner than later!

Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Jason - Bowling Green, KY | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
JoAnn was absolutely fantastic to work with. At first my wife and I wasn't sure exactly what we wanted to do with our vacation. We discussed a European Cruise, Austraila, Hawaii, and other options. After talking with JoAnn about what we were wanting to do, and the budget we had, she helped us pick out an absolutely amazing trip to Hawaii. We split time between Maui, and Oahu. JoAnn took all of our questions, and answered them very quickly. We knew we were in for a good trip, and a wonderful experience, but it exceeded our expectations far more than we could have imagined. I would definitely recommend JoAnn and Travel Leaders to anyone looking to book a trip!

She has always worked hard to get us to a place that fits us. If we bring children, the resort is kid friendly. She looks for good prices as well. She has never disappointed us and is always there to answer questions. We have used her for many years and plan on using her till she retires.

Amazing Trip!

Reviewed By Kim - Bend, Oregon | Traveled to Fiji ~ South Pacific
JoAnn was extremely helpful when we began researching ideas for our trip. She was very professional, responsive, and made sure she provided me with all of the information and details that was important to me when researching information around our trip.

Due to hazardous weather conditions when we were initially suppose to go to Fiji, we ended up needing to rebook our travel and stay. JoAnn was immediately available and helpful at providing new dates/flight information through the stressful situation.

She was absolutely wonderful and always willing to help and answer any questions or concerns I had. She made sure I received our full itinerary and were set to go. In addition, she followed up upon our return from our trip to check and make sure everything went smoothly.

I would definitely recommend JoAnn to any family/friend traveling, she was absolutely wonderful to work with!

Best Trip Ever!!

Reviewed By Pete - Jordan, MN | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We would not have been able to plan such a great vacation without the help of JoAnn. From start to finish she took care of everything we needed for the trip. If we had questions she would always get back to us the same day. JoAnn is a very experienced agent and we will definitely work with her again for future trips :)

Perfect Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Lizzie144 - Minnetonka, MN | Traveled to Nassau ~ Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Joann was the best agent we could have found! Before Joann, we had spoken to two other agents at two other agencies and still had no idea where we wanted to go for our honeymoon. Joann walked us step by step through the process and helped us narrow down our search. This was the first time travelling out of the country for both of us, so her expertise and suggestions were a great help to us! We ended up decicing on a Sandals resort in the Bahamas and couldn't have imagined a better trip within our budget! Thanks Joann for spending so much time helping us through our planning process!
