Traveling to Italy has been one of the highlights of my career. From the cobble stone streets of Rome to the magnificent waterways of Venice, Italy will not disappoint. It feels like it was yesterday when I stood in the Vatican and looked up at the Sistine Chapel. Even if you don't know much about art or the Renaissance Period you will be in complete amazement when you discover Italy and it's many hidden treasures.

Excellent, Personalized Service

Reviewed By Alissa and Dave B - Augusta, GA | Traveled to Australia & New Zealand
We have had the pleasure of working with Jody for many years. During that time, she has set up numerous, sometimes complex trips for us. This has included working with many international hotels, and negotiating with the airlines over the use of frequent flyer miles for International travel involving multiple destinations.

Jody is always great to talk to, and very available. She is extremely knowledgeable about the travel industry.

Based on our recommendation, our daughters and their husbands have used Jody's services as well, with complete satisfaction.

There is true "value added" to what Jody does, and we give her an unqualified recommendation.

Happy Sailors!

Reviewed By Jo - Lansing | Traveled to Caribbean
Jody has been a pleasure to work with. We have booked 5 cruises through her, 2 of which were back to back, and have never been disappointed. She is always available to discuss the details, make changes, etc. Jody is wonderful at keeping on top of the process and reminding us when something is due, needs to be signed, payment needs processed. She makes the whole planning process stress free. We are very happy with the excellent service we receive from her.

Customer Testimonials

Alaska Group Travel

It began with an idea to extend an existing trip to the U.S. Open in Seattle. My husband and I decided to add a cruise to Alaska. We knew that Travel Leaders specialized in cruises. When we walked into the Grand Ledge office we were greeted by Jody Carpenter. We hoped we might have 2 or 3 more couples interested in going, but Jody suggested spreading the word. As it turned out, we had 20 additional family members and close friends that joined us. Pleasing a group of 22 people is no small task. After about a year of planning, many telephone calls and e-mails (as most of our group was not from the Grand Ledge area, and a few even out of state), we set sail for an Inside Passage cruise to Alaska! All of the details, including shore excursions, were handled expertly and efficiently by Jody. Everyone was thrilled with the quick and timely responses to all of our questions and concerns. We all will travel in the future, and will not hesitate to call upon Jody again.
