Honeymoon Trip

Reviewed By Cristina - Eagan, MN | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
My fiancee (now husband) and I have never worked with a travel agency before but since we were overwhelmed with trying to plan our honeymoon trip ourselves we decided to try Travel Leaders. We were a little hesitant in the beginning, but after first speaking with Sue over the phone we felt more comfortable. She provided us great options based on our budget and she was very friendly with answering our many questions.

Sue found us a beautiful resort in Maui Hawaii that was within our budget. When we first walked into our hotel room the first thing we noticed was a box of chocolates with a note from Sue. This was very welcoming especially after our long flight from Minnesota. After discovering the ocean view room we requested faced the courtyard instead of the ocean, Sue was able to change it to an actual ocean view room. She did this on a Saturday!

Sue went beyond our expectations to make sure we enjoyed our honeymoon at a beautiful location.

Best Honeymoon Ever

Reviewed By C&J Newlyweds - Eagan, MN | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Throughout the process Sue was extremely helpful. In the beginning she gave us a breakdown of the different island in Hawaii. We initially wanted to do island hopping, but Sue didn't recommend it during our first trip. She was right; it would have been too stressful! Maui was the recommended island and it was the right choice. Sue was very accommodating when finding us a resort to stay. She understood what we wanted and brought up the Royal Lahaina. The RL was the perfect resort for us. Sue also gave us an idea of some activities to do on Maui. We didn't book any activities with her directly because of the stressful wedding planning. We did however do a lot of the activities she recommended. When we arrived at the RL, my wife was disappointed with the view as we thought we booked an ocean view. We emailed Sue and she connected with her contact in Maui to accommodate us. I must add it was on Saturday, her day off! She took care of us and we couldn't be more grateful. Thank you Sue!

NYC - 2016

Reviewed By SB - Hastings, MN | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
Late last year we traveled to NYC. Sue understood our concerns about staying "close to the action" and staying in a safe (and affordable) area. She found us great rates for our flights and an amazing hotel just a block or so away from Times Square. I cannot thank her enough for the time and effort she put in to ensure that our trip was exactly as we imagined it.

Newbies in Belize - not a problem

Reviewed By The Helms - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Belize ~ Central America
Sue was great. She was very understanding and patient working with me (I'm terrible at answering my phone, and often on the move for work), and took time to understand what type of honeymoon we'd like, our budget, and make great location and resort choices. Everything went smoothly once we got to Belize and we had a fantastic time. Thanks Sue!

Great Vacations Every Time

Reviewed By B&B - Savage, MN | Traveled to London ~ England ~ Europe
We have been working with Sue since 2008. She was actually recommended to us from another friend. She has provided exceptional assistance with trips we have taken. She helped us organize a trip to London prior to picking up a cruise out of Southampton. She got us a great deal on a hotel/airfare package. Also, she assists us with decisions on cruises and working with the cruise company to get us the best deals as well as being a liaison with the cruise company when we have made special requests. We have utilized Sue's experience many times now and we really enjoy working with her and will continue to work with her for all of our future vacations.
