Bridge of the Avalon Tapestry II
Bridge of the Avalon Tapestry II

I have always dreamed of traveling to far away places, exploring new cultures and experiencing new things. At an early age I would sit in my grandfather's living room surrounded by National Geographic magazines, secretly planning all kinds of amazing adventures. As a teen, I had subscriptions to Conde Nast Traveler and Travel magazine and would often ask my aunt, who was a travel agent, where she would send her clients and what experiences they had. When I got older, the desire to travel stayed with me so I started exploring the world myself with my travels taking me to Europe and Costa Rica. In 1994, I enrolled in a program for Travel and Tourism and while in the program I interned at AAA in Heathrow, FL. Once I graduated I joined an agency in Port Orange that specialized in group and senior travel, primarily cruises and motor coach tours. My experience has since grown to include travel to the Caribbean, Europe, Costa Rica, and North America. I specialize in river cruises, tours, cruises to the Caribbean, Alaska, Transatlantic, and Europe. I would love the opportunity to create your dream vacation with you!

Paris & the Heart of Normandy

This was the trip of a lifetime! From the moment I boarded Avalon Waterways Tapestry II, I was transported to another time and place. Exploring France by river was a truly unique and magical experience. The staff and cruise director were warm and friendly and the accommodations on board were more than ...

A success trip abroad.

Reviewed By Trina F. - St. Augustine, FL | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Julia was quite pleasant to work with. This was my first trip out of the country and she helped me plan a trip to Italy. I asked A LOT of questions and went back and forth multiple times and Julia never appeared to be bothered, which greatly helped my anxiety level. The trip went off without a hitch and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. THANK YOU Julia for your expertise. I will definitely recommend and will be back to plan our next adventure.

Hawaii lives up to the word PARADISE (went to Mau

Reviewed By Dottie - Palm Coast | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
She's a busy lady, but always makes time for you, even if it's after hours for her. After giving her ideas of what you'd like and where, she takes the reins and gets the job done. She checks up on flight times and alerts you as necessary. She took care of our flights, and car rentals at two locations. Only issue was had was the flight back from Hawaii, it was too long (9 1/2 hours into Dulles from Honolulu), then another 2 hours from Dulles into Orlando. (going was Orlando to Denver which wasn't bad - just 4 hours, then a break for an hour or two, then on the plane for another 7 1/2 hours to Maui, but it broke it up nicely) - coming home should have been more of another 4 hour with a break and then the remaining hours. But all and all, Julia did a great service for us and we of course will continue to use her and Travel Leaders for our travel needs.

Outstanding travel agent!!!!!

Reviewed By FCT - Gainesville, FL | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
To describe the pleasant experiences of having Julia make travel arrangements one must resort to superlative adjectives: patient, competent, resourceful, timely, excellent communications, all are appropriate!
For my travels, Julia is the first I call, and I highly recommend her!
