Luxury Adventures, Destination Weddings & Groups

Planning Luxury Adventures & Romance Vacations evolved because I enjoy trying to surpass my client’s expectations.  Being a Romance Vacation Specialist was my first travel specialty.  I still wear the slogan proudly on the company car. Creating destination-wedding trips taught me how to book travel groups. Helping couples plan their honeymoon escape is fun. 

Over the past 25 years, I have built a successful travel agency in St. Paul MN by serving my clients with passion, creativity and personalized service. I have learned to be a good listener.  Then I work to find the destination that fits your dream & budget.  I pride myself in taking care of my clients from the beginning to the end of their vacation. 

Working toward my specialization as an Aussie & Kiwi specialist was exciting. Completing certification by visiting both Australia & New Zealand were amazing experiences. Specialization means continuing education, which helps me continue to create unique customized itineraries to Australia, New Zealand & the South Pacific.

I spent my last semester of college studying in Rome & then traveled through Europe ending up in the Greek Islands for several months before returning home. My love of travel began that year. I have been enamored ever since. 

“Finding the best itinerary with the most value is important to me. I always look for the best experience for your travel dollar. Whether it is choosing the perfect luxury resort for a couple’s honeymoon getaway or finding the best supplier for a Africa group travel adventure, I focus on You and crafting the vacation of your dreams.  It is what I do best.  “- Andre’ Leavitt 

Luxury Adventures & Wellness Getaways

Whitehaven Beach (Whitsunday Island)
Whitehaven Beach (Whitsunday Island)

After 20 years of practicing yoga & a lifetime of fitness, designing Wellness Vacation packages for individuals & groups seemed like a natural progression. The trend in Wellness Travel is to workout, relax & reconnect in natural luxurious surroundings.

I have been fortunate to stay at a few of these elegant, Wellness Resorts designed to indulge & pamper. I find that Luxury Adventures embraces the same concept as long as there is a Yoga, hiking & a spa on premise.   

I enjoy selling & visiting Costa Rica. This exotic destination & natural paradise has fully embraced wellness trends with amazing Luxury Wellness Resorts. You don't have to go very far to find adventure, as you're surrounded by it.

Australian Whitsundays and Hamilton Island

Airlie Beach, an Australian resort town on Queensland's Whitsunday Coast, is a gateway to the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. When I visited this past year, I felt as if Airlie Beach was on the verge of change. Yes, it still has the laid- back hippy feel but the ...

Andre was incredibly easy and comfortable to work with. She advised us on great locations to visit in the Canary Islands, as well as found us affordable and convenient airfare and lodging. She had a variety of suggestions for us to choose from, giving us room to select what we wanted while still giving us valuable information. I would definitely work with her again and highly recommend her services.

Wonderful Trip to Ireland

Reviewed By Sarah - St. Paul | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Andre is an excellent travel agent. She has planned several trips for me in the past. She is very easy to work with and makes sure that each trip will be memorable. When she started planning my trip to Ireland, she recommended a tour. I am so glad she did because I was able to see a wide variety of cities and sights in Ireland. The tour covered large cities like Dublin to small towns in the Irish countryside. Andre also recommended a tour because she knew I would get to stay in a castle. The castle was my favorite place that I stayed on the tour. I recommend Andre as a travel agent because she is very knowledgeable and has excellent recommendations for places to go and sights to see.

Great Trip! Catastrophic start

Reviewed By Jon - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We debated doing the internet search to plan a recent family trip but decided to enlist Andre's services based on Angie's list. She found us a variety of options to choose from. However it was the day of our departure that Andre excelled. We found out the hard way at airport check in that a minor's passport is only good for 5 years, not 10 like the rest of the family, so my daughter was denied boarding. I sent the wife and our eldest daughter and I stayed behind with the younger daughter in a frantic attempt to recover and adjust our plans. After leaving Andre a message on a Saturday morning, she quickly called me back and got to work to help me change and extend travel plans. Andre spent the better part of a Saturday on the phone with her contacts but was able to secure a new plan allowing us to pull everyone together after an emergency passport renewal. I honestly don't know what I would have done without Andre's tenacity and travel knowledge. She definitely went above and beyond!

Andre is amazing at fulfilling trip of a lifetime experiences. I have very high expectations and she has delivered on all counts. She has put two amazing trips together for me. One to Peru and one to Africa. These were both private trips. Everything was amazing, from the pick up at the airports to the private English speaking guides to the top shelf accommodation. I can highly recommend her for you trip of a lifetime. Her attention to detail is over the top.

Peru & the Amazon

Reviewed By Yogalift - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Peru ~ South America
Over the past decade Andre has helped me plan several varied and fantastic vacations. As a choosy and experienced traveler I know that I demand a high level of both expertise and service that includes exploring different itinerary possibilities and answering a multitude of questions. I always appreciate Andre’s thorough itinerary investigations and straightforward answers about what will and what will not work well on each trip. The best part is that I never have to worry about the details- tours, connections and transfers,- that can make or break a trip, being addressed and taken care of. Thanks again!

Wonderful. She takes the time to understand the kind of experience you want and does it within your budget. As she says, " I will try to get you the most bang for your buck."

Top 5 Trip of All Time !!!

Reviewed By JP - St Paul, MN | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
We booked a trip for 6 to the Big Island and I was probably the most needy client ever!! Andre took extraordinary measures just to get out hotels and airfare handled through all of my many special requests regarding hotel rooms and plane seats!!!! Andre' was absolutely awesome! That hotel was 5 star charming and the food was outstanding (especially the omelets and fresh fruit ).
I experienced a little hiccup at the second stop, receiving the wrong room type from the host. When I told Andre of my issue she went to bat for me, solved my problem ASAP and actually got us refund from the hotel!

The planned accommodations, flights, excursions and valuable advice made this trip to the big Island the best ever. Thank you Andre so very much for guiding us through this most wonderful trip, and handling our hiccup. We cannot wait to call you for our next adventure !!!

Great train vacation

Reviewed By Wes - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to New Orleans ~ Louisiana ~ USA
Andre booked an Amtrak passenger-rail vacation for us: Minneapolis to New Orleans, round-trip. While in New Orleans, an alternate Tour was desired due to unexpected cold weather. We wanted to change from a Swamp/Bayou Tour (outdoors) to a Plantation Tour (warm bus and indoors). Andre' took care of us! Just a quick phone call to her and she had everything rearranged in minutes with minimal cost to us for an upgraded tour!

The entire vacation was interesting (train travel) and carefree. Andre took car of all the details - booked the trains, hotel and Tours. We haven't used a travel agent in many years, but will be using this agent for future travel plans!

Customer Testimonials

Honeymoon on the Rivera Maya

Neither my fiance or I had ever used a travel agent before, and we decided to try using one for our honeymoon. Based on Time Travels' high marks on line, I decided to call them. I wanted to go to Cozumel for our honeymoon. Andre, from Time Travels, listened to what we wanted to do, asked some questions and then recommended staying on the Riveria Maya instead of Cozumel. She said we would be closer to the attractions we wanted to do/see and we could stay at a much nicer resort. My fiance and I talked it over and decided to go with her suggestion. We are so happy that we listened to Andre! The resort she recommended was fantastic. We really enjoyed our honeymoon. She organized the flights, resort, and our day trips from the resort. Everything went off without a hitch. I recommend Time Travels Inc. She listened to what we wanted to do, and then made suggestions based on her expertise, experience. We had a great honeymoon as a result of listening to her recommendation.

Absolute Dream Honeymoon

André planned an absolute dream honeymoon for my husband and I! We spent two weeks in Europe visiting Barcelona, Spain and Sorrento, Florence, and Rome, Italy. She was very knowledgeable about all the cities and gave great advice on hotels, tour groups, and general site seeing. All of our hotels were smack in the center of the city which made getting around very easy. Our rides were prearranged to and from airports and train stations which really alleviated a lot of the stress of commuting between bustling European cities. This was the European honeymoon we dreamed of and couldn’t have done it without André and Time Travels, Inc. We have recommended her to several of our friends who had amazing trips as well. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone! She has been in the business a long time and really knows her stuff. She will give you her honest advise, listen to what you want, and help plan the trip of your dreams!
