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)
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.

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 ...

Traveling through Europe on a River Cruise is really a stress-free, fun way to adventure. This past August, I had the chance to sail the Danube River, Vienna to Nuremburg. It was truly a blast. Our river cruise ship, the AmaSonata, carried only 160 passengers & dropped us right in the ... Read more from my Danube River Cruise – Authentic, Effortless & Fun! story.

Romantic Beach Vacation
Top 5 Trip of All Time !!!
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
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!
Wes and Cindy Rogers
Dear Wes & Cindy: Thank you for taking the time to write. I enjoyed hearing about your train trip to New Orleans. Glad I was able to help with the tour change. I look forward to working with you again. Sincerely: Andre' Leavitt Time Travels Inc.
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!
