Awesome Wild West Adventure

Reviewed By Joanne - Nampa, Idaho | Traveled to Yellowstone National Park ~ Wyoming ~ USA
Sue helped me determine if this destination was a good fit for what we wanted and also encouraged me to purchase travel insurance as I was booking out almost a year. Great advise as my spouse broke his leg and couldn't make the trip. The rest of the family's adventures included seeing grizzly bears, buffalos, elk, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding. The ranch had awesome food, great service, clean cabins, and best of all fun employees who were there to show us a great time. This is a trip we would do again! It was something different every day.

Best trip yet with kids and grandkids.

When my wife said she wanted to take the family on an Alaskan cruise on short notice, Sue was extremely helpful. We had never taken any type of cruise. Sue was very patience with all our questions and answered the questions quickly and explained all the options in great detail. Since we were "rookie cruisers" Sue went above and beyond in making our arrangements. We will definitely give Sue a call, when we take another trip of the magnitude of an Alaskan cruise.

Australia-Fabulous Mix of City and National Parks

Sue was so helpful in planning our 14 day trip to Australia. We personally asked for a very full schedule visiting the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney and Sue planned flights, accommodations, some excursions and handled all critical pieces. Sue picked fabulous accommodations that fit our needs as a family of 4. That included accommodations in perfect locations so we could access some of the highlights of the cities . She left some of the planning to us as we requested so we had some days to schedule for ourselves. Her work was very timely and her communication was really great! We would definitely use her again!

Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Bucket List Travelers - Eagan | Traveled to Australia ~ Australia & New Zealand
Sue is fantastic to work with which is probably more than I can say for us. :-) We like to research our destination thoroughly prior to researching a potential agent. Our destination was Australia and after several failed attempts to find an Australian agent who could meet our expectations we turned our focus to the Twin Cities market which led us to Sue. Sue listened to our drafted itinerary, provided outstanding input based upon industry knowledge and personal experience (she really knows the Australian tour possibilities) and crafted an "experience of a life time" for us (first time clients). Three more services we want to highlight. Sue coordinated all our tours, all our transfers to and from airports and placed us into hotels which were strategically located to maximize our experience.

Thank you, it was also a pleasure working with you and planning such a wonderful trip and destination that I am passionate about. I hope I can help you again in the future with your travel plans. Best Regards, Sue

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!
