Guided Vacations including small groups

Ancient Rome!

I love guided vacations and think they are a wonderful option for my clients to explore a new destination. Not only do you have the value of a well-informed guide, driver and itinerary, but you get to share your experience with a group of like-minded travelers. Many of us conjure an image of large clumps of tourists taking photos at a roadside stop but today's guided or escorted tours couldn't be further from the truth. Today's guided vacations are small groups, staying in unique hotels, and enjoying the freedom of touring without the hassles of the logistics.

My favorite part of a guided vacation is the guide. He or she is a wealth of knowledge, full of interesting stories, and also advice for when you have time on your own. This guide keeps you engaged, and also provides priority access to sightseeing and the opportunity to try new things like cooking in Tuscany, or wine tasting in the Loire Valley.

If you want to experience a new country or even explore more of our own, I work with a variety of companies that offer high quality guided vacations to match almost any travel wish you have in your bucket list. Please contact me by phone or email and let's make an appointment to learn more about your options on a guided vacation.

Anniversary trip

Reviewed By Judy - Inver Grove Heights, MN | Traveled to Kauai Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
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.
