London Bridge
London Bridge
Over many years of traveling, I've been to nearly every corner of England and can help you plan the vacation you want including every destination, big and small.

I'm a big fan of London, having been there over a dozen times, and yet I STILL haven't had a chance to ride the London Eye. However, I have explored more museums and historic sites than I can count, and had a chance to get a tasty pint in a pub and enjoy some chips (I like mine with mayonnaise). I've spent enough time in one neighborhood to notice when new businesses came in and old ones changed hands. Each little corner has it's own unique sense of charm, from Rye to Oxford and Canterbury to Bath. I am familiar with so many other beautiful and special areas of England, Scotland and Ireland. There's just something special about walking into a building filled with antique stained glass, dark hard woods that make the best thumping sounds when you walk on them and knowing it's older than the country you are from.

Some of my favorite places include the medieval walled city of Chester, Stratford-upon-Avon which is where Shakespeare lived, and Warwick castle, where you can still crawl into the dungeon where they held prisoners! The seaside town of Brighton is good for lively fun, and the far west counties of Cornwall and Devon have rustic villages, more opportunities to explore by the sea, and some world-class gardens.

I know who to work with for that perfect vacation package, and who to call for custom arrangements when it is needed. From gardens to castles to cities to historic sites, let me help you!

First Overseas Trip was fabulous because of Melis

Reviewed By Travel Bug - Canton, Michigan | Traveled to Denmark ~ Europe
From the initial planning stages to the final execution all interactions with Melissa were fabulous. This was my first ever overseas trip. To say I was a little nervous was an understatement and to make me even more nervous I was doing the trip by myself but Melissa made sure everything was taken care of down to the finest detail.

I thought it was going to be a problem when the tour company changed the dates of my tour because the one I originally signed up for did not have enough travelers. Melissa not only sent me the notification to let me know of the change but she also contacted the company who I bought Travel Insurance thru to inform them of the change.

The only thing I had to do was go on my trip and enjoy it. Melissa took care of everything else.

I think my next tour will be a domestic one but I will definitely be needing Melissa's help again.

This was the best trip we have ever taken together

Reviewed By David - Allen Park, MI | Traveled to England ~ Europe
Melissa worked with us to extend our trip by a couple of days and was able to get us a fair price on our hotel. She also worked With Globus to arrange our flights that fit the schedule we were working towards.

First Family Overseas Trip

Reviewed By Karen - Northville, MI | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Working with Melissa was a very positive experience. I appreciated her patience with every change I requested and with every potential change I inquired about, she responded quickly with information and options. Our spring break trip was not planned well in advance, so I was thankful for Melissa's speed and thorough assistance in securing our trip.

We have never traveled as a family out of the country. Our trip was very smooth from beginning to end and I would highly recommend Melissa for her professionalism and cares in making our trip what we wanted!

International travel - more info, less headaches

Reviewed By Mike S - Sterling Heights, MI | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Unsure about what a travel agent could offer in this day of everything being on the internet, especially when I am use to making my own domestic travel arrangements. So glad that I took a chance and called Melissa, as I was traveling to Ireland, then Amsterdam. She had most of the answers to my questions and the ones she didn't, she found the answers and got back to me in a timely manner. She also had information/questions for me that I was not even thinking of. I had very little time from when I contacted her to when I was wanting to take this international trip. Airfare,hotels,trainfare, currency exchange,and transportation in between. She also researched some tours for us to try(with reviews). Very professional,very nice demeanor,which always helps when you can tell that someone cares about their job. The experience was so good that I have already had her help me with an upcoming trip to New York.

Italian Family Vacation

Reviewed By Laura - Belleville, MI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Melissa helped book and plan a recent trip to Italy. I was so thankful for her help the whole way! She helped eliminate stress out of the planning process completely. When we arrived Italy, we had means of transportation at every step of the way and never had to worry about a thing. After using Melissa’s assistance, I’ve determined I never want to travel without the help of a travel agent again. When I first came to her office, I told her what I was looking for in an Italian vacation and she was able to provide me with ideas I had never even thought of and ultimately saved me hundreds of dollars on my trip. I would DEFINITELY recommend Melissa’s services in the future, in fact- I’ve already recommended her to several friends and family members.

Thank you again Melissa!

Fantastic Europe Trip

An amazing Europe trip!

Reviewed By Maria - Westland, MI | Traveled to Europe
Even though I only used Melissa with booking my flights, she easily helped me save $300+ compared to if I had done the booking myself. She got me an amazing deal on my flight and hotel in Italy. She was very helpful and gave great advice and tips for my first trip to Europe. If you have any problems or concerns, she will be there to fix them. I would recommend Melissa and definitely work with her for my future trips.

Judy's best trip ever, and I enjoyed going back.

Reviewed By Geoff and Judy - Canton, MI | Traveled to Rome ~ Italy ~ Europe
We were so impressed with Melissa researching and setting up our trip to Rome and the Almafi Coast. There were a lot of challenges to overcome in the planning process. She came up with options and spent time meeting with us to close in on our plan. It was a great trip.

I can't commend her enough for her excellent professional and people skills. Melissa was supper!

Therefore, we are back with her to plan our next trip to England and Ireland!

Great, well planned trip.

Reviewed By Karen - Northville, MI | Traveled to Europe
We are so glad we used Melissa to plan our London and Paris trip. She was friendly and super thorough and gave us many touring options. I especially appreciated all the "European Travel Tips" she gave me when I picked up our itineraries. Melissa was especially professional when we were debating on whether to keep or cancel our trip as planned (Paris). She carefully guided us through our options but we decided to stay on our course. We are now thinking of what our next vacation could be and plan on using her again!

Wonderful Experience

Reviewed By Leslee - Orland Park, Illinois | Traveled to Portugal ~ Europe
I was having challenges finding a travel agency that would provide their expertise on a trip to Portugal. I selected Travel Leaders because it was close to my traveling companions.

Melissa was awesome. She had spent some time in Barcelona, where we spent three days, and was very candid about what we should do and expect; she was right. The next nine days were in Portugal and in spite of never visiting here, Melissa was right on when it came to our preference in hotel locations, tours and time off. She did a significant amount of research and we were able to book everything prior to taking the trip including a flight from Barcelona to Porto and train trips from Porto to Algarve and back to Lisbon. This really reduced the time spent and the stress attached to doing these tasks while traveling. Melissa was constantly in touch, even on her days off, and was very timely in her responses to info needed. (I even received an email while traveling.)

I would highly recommend Melissa

Best trips of our lives!

Reviewed By Rebecca - Canton, MI | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
She really knows what she's doing; really well informed. She has never steered us wrong on our 3 trips to the UK. If Melissa says it's all set, then its all set. From finding week-long guided tours to turning us lose on our own, or with day trips, she knows them all. We completely endorse her work, she is great. Very professional and friendly too. Have total confidence in Melissa!
