For more than 30 years, travel has been more than my profession — it's been a way of life. During college I began working part-time in a travel agency in order to do filing and answer the phones. As a travel consultant, I work with clients who are looking for extra special experiences with a high touch. I know where luxury meets adventure, and I provide expert recommendations for every destination I book.

Our Wonderful Travel Agent

Reviewed By Beau - Norfolk, VA | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Carol is wonderful!!! Her planning and suggestions for travel are just what we needed... Her planning is complete and we know exactly where to go and what to expect. She has excellent ideas and alternatives for seeing a different place.
But when something goes unexpected she is right there to assist and solve the problem..She know when you are suppose to take off and land and if there is a glitch you can count on your email to "bing" with a question from her on your status and follow up solutions. We once missed a tour due to the in country agency mistake and she got our money back.
We have recommended her to our traveling friends and they have all had the same great experience.
You may think that just a travel guide book is enough but you will be missing
some great experiences if you don't talk to Carol and see what her ideas of what additional things to see and do.

Carol Horner responded:
Thank you so much for your kind review. I have enjoyed all the vacations I have planned for you and your family and look forward to the upcoming ones. You know you can always count on me. Carol

1) Moscow and Baltic Cruise

I travel with 8-10 people for cruises and land tours. Carol is always pleasant and very professional whenever I need questions answered despite her very busy schedule. She always put in extra effort whenever I need help. She follows our trips if there are any delays or cancellations from the very start to the end. She was exceptional in dealing with the Insurance company when we had to cancel our trip to Brussels and the Netherlands to make it easier for us all to be reimbursed. She also made it so easy for us all when we had a 24 hour delay in New Orleans for hotel stay and meals.

Carol to the rescue!

Reviewed By Sheryl - Collinsville, MS | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
This is the second trip I've had Carol plan for us. Due to bad weather, our first early morning flight got pushed back several hours throwing all our connecting flights and ultimately our whole trip off a day. Carol jumped right in and started calling airlines, hotels, and rental car companies getting everything changed around so that the rest of our trip was corrected. She kept me updated every step of the way communicating via phone calls, email and text. Couldn't have asked for someone to handle it better!

Trip to India

Reviewed By Chuck - NORFOLK | Traveled to India ~ Central Asia
We recently took a trip to India, part work and part fun. Greaves Travel was our agent in India; we were introduced through our local agent, Carol Horner. It was a delight to be supported by those teams.
The guides we had were superb!! Their knowledge of the history and what we were seeing was wonderful... My wife had three days in Delhi with the same guide and she was excellent. This made the Delhi part of the trip special to be able to really get to know her. We really enjoyed our interaction with all the Greaves staffing
We were met at each hotel and their agent assisted in the check in/check out details. The hotels they selected were not only lovely hotels but they all had a historical association that was unique
When we had a problem, very small by most standards, they stayed on the scene and took care of us. we were very very impressed with their service and follow through and would very highly recommend them for a visit to India

Travel Leaders Review

Reviewed By mjustaslost - Virginia Beach | Traveled to Caribbean
We have been working with Carol for 10 years now and continue to have stellar service year after year. As her client I feel like I don't have to worry about anything because she takes care of everything. I feel like my vacation is so organized and well put together that all I have left to do is enjoy it! Carol also emails me along the way to make sure I am getting everything ready for the trip. It's nice to know I have someone there if I have a question or need help with anything, trust me she has done that before! One time there was a problem with our flights overseas and she was at her home after 9pm changing our flights so we didn't get stuck in a worker's strike and miss our honeymoon cruise. Now that's a dedicated travel agent! I hope we ne er have another bad incident but I know I can count on Carol to be there. She even checks on us after our trip and if we had a good time. Carol is an exceptional travel agent and a fabulous person. So much better than online services!

Carol always responds quickly to our questions and inquiries about trips. She provides a lot of information on destinations and spends time going over the itinerary before we leave. Carol always "has our back" if any issue arises when we are traveling; she finds a solution right away. She knows almost immediately if there is a connection issue when flying (sometimes before we do), and she works to find another flight to get us to our destination as soon as possible. Over the years, Carol has arranged dozens of trips for us and our family, and we have never been disappointed. She is like our American Express card - we would not leave home without her.

Best honeymoon ever!

Reviewed By The Smilsons - Virginia Beach, Virginia | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Although I have not worked with any other travel agency or travel agent, I know I don't need to. Carol and the Travel Leaders team was extremely detailed and took every step to ensure we had the best trip of our lives. From the initial planning stage until the moment we were back home from our trip, Carol was just a call or text away. She was genuinely excited for us and our adventure and had great tips for myself as this was the first time I was traveling outside of the country. I was most impressed with her organization and quick response with any question we had (even investigating the name of the small taco hut near the beach in Tamarindo). The two resorts treated us spectacularly and everyone we met was extremely accommodating. Having excursions nearly every day could have been a scheduling nightmare, but everything went off without a hitch! I would not change a thing about our trip and can say with certainty we absolutely could not have done it without Carol.

Trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Pam - Virginia Beach, VA | Traveled to Basel ~ Switzerland ~ Europe
Working with Carol Horner at Travel Leaders was an absolute pleasure. From the first meeting she was always very personable, informative, and knowledgeable. She gave us excellent advice and suggestions, since we were first time river cruise travelers, concerning destinations, best time of year to travel, choice of staterooms and more. Closer to departure she provided us with detailed documentation that covered all aspects of the trip so we would know what to expect regarding flights, transfers, accommodations, excursions, etc. In addition, she tracked our travels in order to provide assistance should we have difficulties along the way. Our entire experience from the planning stages with Carol's help to the trip itself was fantastic. The Viking Rhine Getaway River Cruise was the perfect choice for us. The ship and all its crew were wonderful, accommodating any request. We enjoyed visiting all the cities on the river and the guides were terrific. It was a fantastic experience!

An Italian Adventure

Reviewed By Sharon's and Marc - Virginia Beach, VA | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
My husband and I booked an anniversary trip,to Italy. Carol was amazing. We used another local travel agency before to book a trip to Hawaii for our last anniversary, and that agency did not come close to what Carol did for us. Her attention to detail, her work to make sure everything ran smoothly for us was amazing. We have not been abroad for over 30 years and were very nervous about our trip. Carol had the patience to take multiple phone calls, and set up multiple meetings with us (she even scheduled them before her normal office hours to accommodate our work schedules.)

I have never worked with anyone who followed our trip step by step to ensure that we had no hiccups. We take trips every two years and we will, without a doubt, without one s cond of hesitation, user Carol again.

Reviewed By The 3 Cousins - Norfolk, VA | Traveled to Europe
Carol is so fun and easy to work with! This was our 2nd time working with her on extended (3 weeks) trips to Europe, each including Viking river cruises. All details were taken care of and she made sure we had every piece of documentation we needed before leaving. I had 1 "hiccup" when we missed a connecting flight in Europe. Carol was on top of it as soon as I texted her the situation. She was even up working on rescheduling a tour we had missed at 6:30 AM the next morning! Couldn't ask for a more competent travel agent!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

When we use Carol, we absolutely travel better!

Reviewed By Sara - Virginia Beach, VA | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
I have worked with Carol for years, and have always had an excellent experience. She is efficient, knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. She always has great recommendations for family travel. She is amazing when flights are delayed or cancelled! She is right on top of it and fixes it usually before I can get in touch with her. I can't say enough positive things about Carol and the service she provides.

Best TRIP"S" we have had since Carol as our agent!

Reviewed By Kelly - Branchville, Virginia | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
I have used Carol for almost 10 yrs! She keeps me on file and knows the type of vacation's we (friends/fam) like to enjoy!(Budget/ quality /entertainment/atmosphere/resort type) I have never been disappointed going to places I have never been before. I have been on several cruises (3 or more) using her services, and 4 times at a reasort! We loved one resort so much we got some family members to return to get married there and we went again. We have recently returned from Costa Rica-RIU Palace... Again we are planning to return but stay 7 or 8 days next year. Carol is always on point! She will be our travel agent until she is no longer in service.
Oh-and the personal services you receive are the best ever. About 2 weeks before your trip you will receive a packet and a little binder with tips on your travel, about your destination, airport layouts-and private airport teansfers etc. And you get a personal note upon your return and she appreciates feedback-(-or+)
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Outstanding Vacation!

Reviewed By Guy - Suffolk, VA. | Traveled to Mexico ~ Mexico
I have worked with Carol and her team at Travel Leaders since moving to the Hampton Roads area in 2010. As a small business owner there just isn't the time it takes to book travel and prepare yourself for a trip. That's where Carol and her team come in and shine every time. From the seamless travel packages they provide to the outstanding customer service. I simply won't travel without the professional assistance from Carol and Travel Leaders.

Caribbean Dream

Reviewed By Thomas - Virginia Beach, VA | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Having never booked an international trip before, Carol made the experience as simple as possible. The attention to detail and overview/insight Carol provided us was fantastic. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and often already provided material on the issues before we could think of them. Our stay at the Sandals Regency La Toc was top notch and was an experience both my wife and I will remember always. We look forward to our next trip and can't wait to begin planning it again with Carol and her team.

Our Favorite Award Winning Travel Agent

We leave most of our travel headaches to our favorite, award-winning travel agent, Carol Horner at Travel Leaders in Virginia Beach. Carol, an old friend and professional travel agent has managed dozens of trips for us from her agency in Kempsville. Carol and Travel Leaders are good at what they do and she has access to discounts and deals we normal people don’t usually see. I like having her on my side when travel-related issues rear their ugly head.
