Dream Vacation

Reviewed By Lucy and Ricky - St Paul MN | Traveled to Kauai Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Michelle is on it! We had a problem with the auto rental agency when we arrived in Kauai, and a problem with Delta. Michelle immediately got a refund for us with Delta and has filed a complaint re: auto rental agency. She wrote a very detailed letter and has kept us informed.

We had a dream vacation and felt so fortunate to have Michelle at our fingertips when we ran into issues. We would definitely use Michelle again. I can't imagine have Expedia, etc. doing much.

We have our new travel agent!

Spring Getaway

Reviewed By Krings Family - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
This was the first time we used Michelle for booking our family vacation. We had specific dates to work with and Michelle was great in finding us the perfect vacation package. We had been to Mexico several times, but never on the Puerto Vallarta side. We stayed at the Grand Fiesta Americana. It was an adult only hotel which was also a first for us. The hotel, staff and amenities were awesome! We would definitely go back!

We will use Michelle again to plan our next adventure!

Thanks Michelle!

An Amazing Trip

Reviewed By Chuck and Judy - Oakdale, MN | Traveled to Kauai Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Michelle was great to work with. We met early (9/15) to lay out our plans and Michelle was so helpful in making suggestions and recommendations. With plans finalized, we received a summary of our itinerary and constant updates on any changes. We upgraded to comfort seating and paid extra. Just before we left, (1/13/16) there was a change of aircraft. Upon boarding, we were assigned regular seating. We notified Michelle from Kauai and within a couple days, we were reimbursed for our seat upgrades.The car rental company was not able to provide the vehicle size we had reserved and paid for. Rudely they offered a larger vehicle AND additional fee of $280. Michelle became aware of this and is in the process of following up. When traveling, it's comforting to know there is someone to call if problems arise. Michelle has gone above and beyond to insure that we had the most awesome vacation. We will definitely work with Michelle again (and again).

Review of Globus, Italy and Michelle

Reviewed By Kevin - Cottage Grove, Minnesota | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Well Michelle, we did it. We were impressed with Globus. Our tour director, Elena, our bus driver, Bruno, and the local tour guides were great. Elena was especially exceptional. She took care of all 46 of us. The bus was very comfortable as we drove around northern Italy. Hail Bruno.

Air Canada is a good airlines, but we probably wouldn't fly through Canada again. The Toronto airport is one big hassle. We literally almost missed our flight from Toronto to Rome, give or take 5 minutes. Overall though it was a super vacation. We highly recommend Globus. Thanks for everything.

Excellent trip with Globus

Reviewed By Dutch - Hot Springs Village, Arkansas | Traveled to Canada
Michelle is a very professional travel agent, and is particularly good when there is a problem! She knows who to call and how to solve issues that arise even at the last minute. Michelle presents options for travel, flights and such which helped us get the most for our travel dollar.

We were also very pleased with Travel Leaders as an agency. We had a specific flight request that Globus changed without notifying either Michelle, or us, in advance. It was a deal breaker. However, the Travel Leaders agency absorbed some additional cost in order to solve the problem. The result was an excellent trip.

WE LOVED SAN DIEGO!

Reviewed By GH - Oakdale, MN | Traveled to San Diego ~ California ~ USA
Michelle,

We had a wonderful time is San Diego. Thank you for booking our family vacation. When you have 8 adults and 5 kids under the age of 4, it can be a challenge for everyone to be on the same page but we made it work and it was great. Your group booking and car rental reservations were excellent. Being able to sit on the plane all together made it easier for everyone to help each other out. I think this is our 5th trip we have booked with you and they have all been fantastic.

Thanks again,
GH

30th wedding anniversary trip

Reviewed By Happy Couple ( Kris & Joe ) - New Richmond, WI | Traveled to Europe
This was our first trip using a travel agent. Because of our very limited travel experience, we were very happy that Michelle knew the process and was able to book all the flights, hotels and car rental for us as well as organize the trip in an itinerary that was easy to follow and understand.

She was always responsive when we had questions or worries about the trip. Before the trip and during the trip as well.

The next time we consider a trip, the first call will be to Michelle.

Orlando or Bust

Reviewed By Mike - Cottage Grove, MN | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
We have worked with Michelle on several trips and have enjoyed our experience. She provides excellent customer service.

This time she assisted us with the planning of an Orlando Vacation for our whole family. There were eight of us in total and Mom & Dad were footing the bill.

We stayed at Cabana Bay at the Universal Studio's. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and had a great time at the various theme parks. We also made a road trip to Cocoa Beach. It is was a fun filled day and it was the first time that our Grandchildren had seen the ocean. The weather was beautiful and the day provided a great deal of memories for everyone.

But alas the trip had to end and we had to return to reality.

Our Wedding!!

Reviewed By Mrs.B - Woodbury | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Michelle recently planned our destination wedding for a group of 50. Michelle picked the perfect resort to fit our needs and the needs of our group. The resort made our wedding dreams come true. With the assist of Michelle we got all 50 people to and from Minneapolis without any delays. Which included planning members trips from other parts of the country, making special arrangements, and booking additional days. We are so glad we made the decision to work with travel leaders compared to other options that are out there. I could meet with Michelle in person, and she was prompt to all my bridal needs. We plan to use travel leaders for our upcoming trip!!

The Best Honeymoon!

Reviewed By Mr. and Mrs. Reddington - Gillette, WY | Traveled to Mexico
Michelle helped us plan our amazing honeymoon in Puerto Morelos, located in Quintana Roo, Mexico's easternmost state, on the Yucatán Peninsula. From the early planning stages, Michelle was eager to share with us her knowledge of the area. With her advice, we stayed at Excellence Riveria Cancun. The accommodations, hospitality and food were everything and more Michelle had described. We can't wait to book our next vacation with Michelle!

Pleased first timers

Reviewed By Rita RJ - Cottage Grove, MN | Traveled to Kauai Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
We have never consulted a travel agent before and Michelle made it an easy experience. While planning our trip to Kauai, we ran across date conflicts which caused us to change travel dates multiple times. Michelle must have researched dates and packages at least 5 times and answered our many questions with courteousness and cheerfulness. Phone calls and emails were returned within very reasonable time periods. She checked in with us at the beginning of the trip and followed up upon our return. Our trip was a refreshing break to every day life. We would certainly use Michelle's services again.

Puerto Vallarta All Inclusive Family Trip

Reviewed By J9Reds - Saint Paul MN | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
We have worked with Michelle for years and she is really great to work with. She is knowledgeable and goes that extra mile to get us the best deal and to make sure we are happy. She is very easy to work with and you can ask her anything and if she doesn't know the answer she will make sure she finds out. Her follow up is the best and she keeps you in the know from the beginning stages of planning a trip to touching base after the trip to see how we enjoyed our vacation. When thinking about travel for work or pleasure I immediately contact Michelle. I will continue to work with her for all my travel needs, she is an incredible person and agent. We just got back from RIU Vallarta in Puerto Vallarta Mexico and decided to do an all inclusive and that is definitely the way to go with a 5 year old. The RIU is a beautiful resort with a lot of activities and events planned each day. The beaches were gorgeous and the location was perfect. The only negative was the pools closed at 6pm.

Michelle was great to work with for planning our honeymoon. We narrowed down to a few locations, and she gave us the best resorts to choose from for each location based on our needs. We wanted to go on a honeymoon to relax not be a part of a huge party scene and she pointed out the sandals in st. Lucia to us. We chose the Halcyon and it could not have been more perfect!
