What are people saying about Meridith?

'When Meridith is helping with my travel plans, the attention she gives me makes me feel as though I am her most important customer.' J.S. St. Paul, MN The honeymoon was FABULOUS...great hotel picks, they were perfect in every town. I especially loved that we were upgraded to “superior” rooms...everything went so smoothly. I have told several people already that going through a travel agent was the best way to go – I will pass your name on to others as I hear about their travel plans. Thank you so much for all of your help! K.T. Plymouth, MN

Awesome Spring Break!

Reviewed By Chriso - Chaska, MN | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Meridith planned an exceptional vacation for our family of five. From the morning (but not too early) non-stop departure, the fabulous all-inclusive resort, and the tour coordinator who was present as we arrived at our destination- everything was taken care of. We were able to enjoy sun, relaxation and family time instead of worrying about all the travel details

Amazing trip!

Reviewed By Laurie - Mendota Heights, MN | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Meridith was amazing to work with planning our first family trip overseas! She made a few suggestions that I declined, and now that I’ve made the trip, I wish we would have taken her advice. Although our trip was fabulous, from fantastic accommodations to coordinated transportation, if we did it again, I would take her recommendations to take the train to more cities to expand our experience. I highly recommend Meridith for your travel needs. She was great!!

Anniversary trip

With the hope of celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary by taking a dream vacation, I contacted Travel Leaders and Meridith answered the phone. She is professional and knowledgeable and the trip ended up being perfect for us because she is an excellent listener and asked a lot of good questions. She understood what we were looking for and did a remarkable job providing options within the framework of our desires. We especially appreciated that she stayed within our budget and that correspondence during the planning stages was always prompt and courteous. We are thrilled with the service that Meridith provided and highly recommend her for your travel planning.

Meridith O'Toole is a fantastic travel agent. We tell her our dream, and she finds choices for us. Meridith even customized a cruise for our special interests. Then she takes care of all the pesky details. When we had a death in the family, Meridith took care of all the cancellations, and even got us refunds.
