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.

First Family Trip To Europe!

Reviewed By Gilliam - West Bloomfield, MI | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Melissa was very helpful with planning our family vacation to Europe. We had never visited Europe before, so she was able to provide hotel and flight recommendations to ensure we had a great location and enough time for activities. Melissa was very attentive to our needs as a family and helped make sure we had a great flight (regarding time) and private transportation to and from the airport. I will definitely work with Melissa in the future!

Best trip EVER!

Reviewed By caseysstorm - Westland, MI | Traveled to Europe
As a couple who has never been to Europe before, we tried to plan our anniversary trip ourselves but were easily overwhelmed. I contacted multiple travel agencies to get their help, but no one responded. Then I found Travel Leaders. I contacted them via message online late at night about going to Rome and Athens and got an immediate response from Melissa. She said she would start helping us with out trip right away. Throughout the planning period, my boyfriend and I had many questions that we threw at Melissa, and she was willing and able to answer all of them quickly and in a way that was easy for us to understand. Even while we were on our trip, I had questions about coming back, and she answered me right away. She was beyond helpful and made our trip a blast. She listened to everything we wanted to do and made it happen! I will definitely be coming back to Travel Leaders and Melissa for all of our future travel plans.

I would recommend Melissa to any friend or family member looking to plan a trip. My mother and I were looking to plan a 2 week trip to Ireland and Scotland. Melissa accommodated our wish to travel by car. The timing at each location was perfect. We saw everything we wanted to without feeling rushed.

Melissa is wonderfully attentive to her clients. She alerted us to discounts being offered through Monograms that fit our itinerary and she made sure we booked within that window of opportunity. When we ran into trouble getting home due to an Italian airline workers strike, Melissa worked diligently with the airlines on our behalf to get us home on-time.

Thorough travel agent made for wonderful trips!

Reviewed By Amanda - Broomfield, CO | Traveled to Switzerland ~ Europe
Melissa is wonderful to work with! Through her, I booked a trip to Italy with my best friend, & my honeymoon to Switzerland this year.

I have nothing but positive feedback for the planning process. She listened to what we wanted out of the trips & made it happen. She kept in touch throughout the planning process, took our feedback & made changes as necessary-- all with a smile! She sat down with us & explained our itinerary before the trip, which was very helpful. Even after my friend & I unfortunately missed a flight in Italy because we misread the departure time, she arranged a late night pick up (like, 2am!) to take us to our hotel AND was able to get us reimbursement for the tickets!

She was very friendly, very organized & very professional-- I can ask for nothing more in a travel agent! I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know!

The perfect family vacation abroad!

Reviewed By Angela - Chelsea, Michigan | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
I knew that I needed help for international plans for our family of four. We wanted flexibility with a few specific details in mind. Melissa was wonderful at patiently continuing our search with us as our ideas became more clear, and I appreciate that she took all of our thoughts into consideration while developing the best plans for us. We had exactly the trip we were after - a combination of tours in various parts of Germany with time on our own, at family-friendly areas of the cities we visited. She was clever at finding age-appropriate details (we have 10yo twin boys) so that all four of us enjoyed ourselves. Our accommodations were just right and our transportation was fun (one of our requests!). The highlight of the entire trip was the delightful castle that she secured for us, Schloss Kartzow, that we never, ever would have found on our own. I am absolutely won over to working with Melissa for her expertise!

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.

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

My husband and I had dreamed of taking a tour of Italy. With all of the site seeing and history there, we knew we had to cram a lot into a short trip. Melissa was so knowledgeable on the country, and provided the perfect trip for us. She signed us up for the Monograms package in Sorrento and Rome, which was incredible. I highly recommend this package because it was the perfect combination of guided tours and "free" days where we were able to explore on our own. We then traveled up to Florence followed by Venice. Melissa booked us great hotels and the transportation from one location to another was totally seamless. It was such a luxury not to worry about getting around. Melissa was so responsive during the planning process, and even during the trip itself when I had last minute questions. The only thing I would change is the timing. We traveled in mid August, and it was uncomfortably hot in Italy!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Melissa Becker responded:
I'm sorry it was so hot but you two were wonderful to work with! Hope to see you again. : )

Awesome family trip to Italy

Reviewed By Wendy - Troy, Michigan | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Melissa was wonderful to work with! I had a very specific and detailed trip in mind for seven family members, and she worked hard to meet all of my requests. I consider myself to be a fairly particular and experienced traveler, and Melissa did a great job satisfying all of my requirements. From the very first time we met she made it a point to explain everything in detail, make changes when necessary, and answer any questions that I had in a timely matter. I would highly recommend Melissa's services as a travel agent.

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!

Wonderful European Vacation!

Reviewed By cmc - Northville, MI | Traveled to Europe
Melissa was wonderful to work with while planning our European vacation!! Beginning with our first interaction with Melissa, she made sure to gain an understanding of what we were looking for in our vacation. Her recommendations for hotels and travel were spot on and met our travel needs perfectly.
Even after our travels began, she was in touch to advise us of any itinerary changes occurring as she became aware of them (flight changes, etc).
I highly recommend Melissa to assist with travel planning.

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.

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!

The most beautiful trip ever!!!

Reviewed By Megant - Minnesota | Traveled to Canada
Melissa is AMAZING!! She helped us out every step of the way and was available for us 24/7. I have used other travel agents in the past, and Melissa was BY FAR the best. She helped us travel around Canada for a very decent price, organized everything that we did, and was always checking in with us if we had questions. When I emailed her with questions or comments, she immediately got back to me. I would suggest using Melissa to everyone and will definitely be passing her information to family and friends.

One of our BEST Trips Ever!!

Reviewed By Traveling Austinites - Austin, Texas | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Melissa did a fantastic job of coordinating one of our best trips ever to Ireland. We spend 2 fabulous weeks there in July, 2017. Melissa was great to work with but her real strength is her responsiveness and ability to fix issues on the fly. As with any trip there were a few hiccups along the way and a quick text from Ireland and Melissa was on top of it and fixed whatever the issue was. I would highly recommend her to anyone thinking about traveling to Ireland. She has personally been to Ireland several times and really knows how to help you plan a wonderful vacation. We will be going back and we will use Melissa again to book our trip. She was AWESOME!

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!

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

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.

Successful first trip to Europe

Hi Melissa, My daughter and I had a great trip to Vienna, Prague and Berlin. We really enjoyed the Monograms Tour company and agree with you that its a great way to have the benefit of a tour company while giving us flexibility when we reach a city. We ended up going on some of the optional tours through Monograms but also found some on our own as well. The local guide was very helpful particularly since it was my first time in Europe. We met briefly with the local guide the first day in Vienna and Prague and then took a 1/2 day tour the next day with the local guide and group. Both were very informative and gave us a great understanding of the city and its history. Since we stayed at the same hotel in Berlin as the Monograms group we ended up hanging out with several of the monograms couples from the prior cities. Thanks again for all your help with getting this put together. My daughter and I have many great memories from my first trip to Europe!

Fun trip to London, Paris and Edinburgh

Thanks so much for helping us plan such a wonderful trip. We really had a fantastic time overall. The scenery was wonderful in England, so green. We got to see Stratford, Stonehenge and Bath. Normandy was very cool and a very long day, but very worthwhile. We took at bike tour to Versailles, saw the palace, rode around the grand canal, had a great picnic lunch on the canal. We bought our lunch at an open air market in Versailles prior to starting our ride. This was our best tour. We saw so many wonderful things, so much history, we had wonderful weather overall. Each and every day we spent walking the city, using the metro systems, touring the various sites. We walked miles on this trip, so we didn’t gain weight with all the good food we were eating. We took 600 pictures of everything, and I mean everything. It was fun. I so look forward to you helping us do another trip in the future. Don't know when that might be, but we'll be back.

Wonderful custom Italian exploration

Hi Melissa, Our trip was absolutely wonderful. The tour was a bit exhausting, but we saw and did a lot. Our tour director, Jane, was the best and very knowledgable. Our train experience was just that -- quite an experience. The only one thing we would have changed, we would not have left Monterosso. We would have taken the train to Santa Margherita. But, as it was we enjoyed it. Portifino was beautiful. Cinque Terre was everything we had hoped. We took the train to Vernazza and Corniglia and loved it. I don't think I need to tell you about the Amalfi coast. Spectacular! Our extra night in Sorrento was just what the doctor ordered after the tour. We loved it. Driving south to Calabria was nothing short of amazing. The two nights we spent in Paola was a true Italian experience, not to mention the time we spent with my family. The food we ate in the south as well as Cinque Terre was to die for. In Paola we literally had a woman who cooked for us. I could go on and on...

Smooth trip to London for the Tower Poppies

Hello Melissa, I am back from London and wanted you to know that everything went smoothly. Thank you! Transportation to and from Heathrow to the hotel was very good and did not take nearly as long as I anticipated. Threadneedles Hotel was definitely business guest oriented but suited my needs well. It was only a little more than a block from the tube station so that I was able to get around very easily. Thank you very much for the excellent planning!

Truly Memorable trip to France

First, let me thank you for all your work that resulted in a truly memorable trip to France. I’m still dreaming about it at night!! Also, a BIG thank you for the limo service to and from the airport that I understand from Doug was a gift from you. That made things soooo much easier, especially on the way home when we were all tired. The private tour of Normandy was phenomenal! Our guide was very knowledgeable and the lunch stop was incredible! Thank you! You made travel planning for a big trip effortless on our part, and made it seem effortless on yours. You responded promptly to phone calls or e-mails, even on days when you were not in the office, and when you returned the call you always had answers to questions previously asked or had researched options in response to our queries. You have spoiled us for ever attempting big-trip planning on our own, and we will use you again without question, even though we live 200 miles north of Plymouth.

Italian Family Vacation Success!

Ciao Melissa, Our efforts paid off big time. Everyone loved Italy-the sights, the food, the wine, the people, the hotels and, yes, the gelato exceeded our expectations. Our kids regretted not booking additional days. The best trip ever!!! Insight Vacations, the Italian Intermezzo and our Tour Director, Gloria Marchena were phenomenal. I would highly recommend them to your clients. My entire family would like to say to you, Melissa, and Travel Leaders "Grazie mille" Without your help, advice and patience this trip would not have been such a success. I will not consider anyone but you when planning our next trip. I am looking forward in working with you in the future. Have a great day!
