Vicki Hedberg

Lee's Summit, Missouri Travel Agent

The Travel Source Inc, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

River Cruise Specialist

If you are like me, you don't want to visit a destination, you want to experience a destination. I want to see life through the eyes of the persons who call the destination home. I want to immerse myself in the traditions and experiences that are unique to each destination.

This lust for learning about cultures has led me to experience life in ways I would never dreamed of! Some of my own travel experiences include:

  • Releasing over a thousand sky lanterns at the Yi Peng festival,
  • Sailing on the Sea of Galilee
  • Holding a tiger by the tail
  • Watching the sun set  while sipping a liqueur on safari
  • Experiencing an authentic Thai massage
  • Soaring over Napa Valley in a hot air balloon
  •  Eating mousaka in a cliff top cafe in Santorini
  • Relaxing on the deck of my over water bungalow in Bora Bora

Let me help you experience your trip of a lifetime!

My Reviews

Highly Recommend

Reviewed By Derek - Kansas City | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Vicki was very easy to work with and we are extremely happy we talked with her when looking to book our trip.

We were referred to her through a friend of ours. Without ever meeting her, we were able to have a sit down meeting and determine which vacation spot was best for us in under 20 minutes. She provided a few great options for us and gave us great recommendations that we wouldn't have thought of if we didn't speak with her.

The whole process was very easy and she helped eliminate any stress that would've been possible if we were to book on our own. We would highly recommend to anyone and we will reach back out to Vicki for our next trip!

This was one of the best trips of my life.

Reviewed By Sue - Kansas City MO | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Vicki was amazing. She listened to what I wanted to do and found the perfect trip for me. Everything was handled in a professional and easy manner. All I had to do is pay for the trip and pack my bags. I was a little shocked at the price but you pay for what you get. I am a very busy business woman and traveled alone. She found me a tour that I felt safe, loved and cared for. The tour person was so knowledgeable. The hotels were very clean and quaint. She answered all my questions in a timely manner and even got back with me when I got lost. I will definitely be referring Vicki to anyone who wants to travel. I could not have done it without her. Thank you so much Vicki. I will be ready for another trip soon, just let me know what you find.

Great Trip and met our expectations.

Reviewed By Ken - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to Budapest ~ Hungary ~ Europe
She was prompt and accurate when we asked questions and left messages for her to get back to us. Her advice was very welcome and pertinent to our travel.
Our river cruise was booked on Avalon and they were great and the room on the mid-level with water only a few feet below us exceeded our expectations. Service and food were great!

A trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Kathy - Lee's Summit | Traveled to Prague ~ Czech Republic ~ Europe
When my girlfriend and I decided we wanted to take a Viking Riverboat Cruise from Prague to Paris, Vicki gave us several options from which to choose, describing each one in detail. Since we wanted to spend more time in Prague and Paris, she made recommendations on packages to extend our stay. She was prompt and thorough in answering all our questions. Vicki suggested we book a year in advance to get the best price on our package. She also made sure that I got credit for being a return traveler on Viking. Since she had been to Prague, she gave us tips on places to visit while we were there. When we returned, she followed up to see how our trip was and to ensure that it was a good experience for us. Vicki has been my travel agent for years and years and I have always been very pleased with the trips she has planned for me. She is definitely an expert in the travel world. Thanks, Vicki, for all the wonderful vacations you've planned for me.

A Great Experience

Reviewed By European River Cruise - Overland Park, KS | Traveled to Budapest ~ Hungary ~ Europe
We knew only that we wanted 1) our first river cruise and 2) in Europe. Vicki helped us screen the possibilities and used her own experience to guide us into a marvelous two weeks traveling up the Danube. She carefully followed up with us to make sure we didn't miss any of the many pre-departure actions. Even during the trip, she continued to help us -- her note awaiting our arrival on-board advised "don't miss having a trdelník in Budapest!" (yes, we had to look it up, too!).
Vicki also facilitated extra arrangements, coordinating with the cruise line to secure an early arrival and extra days at our hotel so we could spend time with our Hungarian friends in Budapest.
Best of all, Vicki's office is in Lees Summit. We were able to sit down with her and discuss our options. We knew that if any problems came up (I should emphasize that none did!) or changes needed to be made, she was only a short drive or a local phone call away!

Always the best

Reviewed By Sam - Goodson, MO | Traveled to
Our latest adventure was a South Pacific get-away during the cold winter months of the mid-west. Vicki takes time to understand our objectives and our desires as well as our budget. She always creates an awesome itinerary, suggests tours and activities, follows up throughout the booking and upon return. Vicki is always interested in our experiences and seeks our comments and recommendations - so she can make it better for others as well as tailor our next adventure.

Fantastic!

Reviewed By JoyM - Kansas City, MO | Traveled to
Vicki recently planned a vacation for my husband and I along with two sets of our friends. She managed all three families, securing us the best rooms at a resort in the Riviera Maya. Every detail was planned efficiently and explained to us in detail. We basically just picked the resort and rooms we liked best (from options Vicki had researched) and she did the rest. Our travel arrangements were thorough and easy to understand, but best of all, maximized our time in paradise. I felt at ease knowing that we were going to have an amazing trip thanks to Vicki's planning, and she most certainly exceeded our expectations!

Great experience!

Reviewed By Sherri - Lee's Summit, MO | Traveled to
When we met with Vicki, we weren't sure what type of trip we wanted to take. She provided info on a variety of different options and we decided on a cruise. Vicki handled all of the arrangements quickly and efficiently, which we appreciated since we wanted to leave in about 6 weeks. She provided the information we needed and responded to our questions in a timely manner. We had a fabulous time on the cruise and everything went very smoothly! We're ready to go again!
