Reviewed By Charles - Spanaway | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
I have worked with Sydney on two vacations in the past two years. She has always provided the utmost professionalism and ensured that everything was done so that I would have no worries on my trip. Excellent job and I will use her expertise next year as well.

We'll always have Maui

Reviewed By Sun seekers - Gig Harbor, Wa | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Sydney was great to plan with. By email and phone we compared notes on potential places, locations, and things to do etc., and made decisions quickly. We saved time and money and began enjoying our vacation before we even left. We picked the perfect location for beach and town roaming. Lahaina shores beach resort has the cleanest room we've ever seen. Sydney's genuine enthusiasm for Hawaii travel makes us want to go again soon. She's professional and personable - calm, cool, collected and very sweet too! We highly recommend her!

Best Honeymoon Ever.

Reviewed By The Stanifers' - Lakewood Wa | Traveled to Mexico
Amazing, awesome experiance. My wife and I spoke with Sydney 6-7 months prior to our wedding to plan our honeymoon. We explained what we wanted, all the must haves and she found us the perfect location. We said that we wanted and all inclusive over the water bungalow but Sandals was to expensive. After some research and back and forth emails; she nailed it. We will definitely be using her again for vacation planning. She did an awesome job. Thank you so much.

Syndey did it again!

Reviewed By Reka - San Leandro, CA | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
I can always count on Syndey to book an awesome trip. She helped me plan a surprise bday trip for my husband in Las Vegas during Super Bowl weekend. The pricing that she found was unbeatable and everything went smoothly. She’s always so patient and kind. I know that she loves what she does. My husband loved the trip so much that we decided to do a yearly trip to Las Vegas for his bday/Super Bowl. Thanks again Syndey!

This is the 2nd trip Sydney has helped plan for us. This one included: 6 flights, 3 islands in Hawaii, 1 hotel, 1 rental car and a 2 bedroom house rental. It was absolutely perfect! Every plan at every turn was perfect. Sydney will always be our go-to sweet lady for our travel needs, she is superb!

Surprise New Year trip

Reviewed By Moritta - Indianapolis, Indiana | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
My experience with Sydney from beginning to end was more than I expected. I decided to give my family a trip to Punta Cana for Christmas and she did it disappoint by preparing a package in our budget, allowing us to pay off during a short period. A couple days before our trip I asked if she could contact the resort and have decorations for both our kids (age 20 and 25) who just had a bday and one about to have a birthday. Upon arrival we went to their room and it was decorated with towel art and flowers! In addition, Sydneybwas always available to ask questions and obtain additional info regarding excursions, etc. We have already recommended Sydney to family and friends and will be accessing her services for future adventures.

Saddest trip of our lives.

Reviewed By The Kirks - Roy, Washington | Traveled to Washington D.C. ~ District of Columbia ~ USA
We just love Sydney! This trip was very difficult, we needed to go to Arlington National Cemetery where our beloved nephew was being interred with full honors. Sydney was able to make all arrangements for us over the phone. She is such a kind and compassionate lady, she really made this trip easy for us. Our flight was non-stop and our accommodations were excellent.
Sydney also has made all the arrangements for our 30th wedding anniversary trip to the Hawaiian Islands where we will visit three Islands, have 2 rental cars, one hotel and one cottage. Not only will we recommend her, we already have.
We cannot thank her enough.

First vacation & Best vacation ever!

Reviewed By Jesse Kern - Laguna Hills, CA | Traveled to Cabo San Lucas ~ Baja California Sur ~ Mexico
I have been working with Sydney for, I believe, a couple years. I originally wanted to surprise my wife with a trip but that ended up falling through due to reasons of my own. I changed jobs and because of that I completely lost her contact and was devastated but did everything I could to find it (because of how fantastic she was). I FOUND IT!!!

She then helped book a vacation for my wife and I to Cabo Mexico. No longer a surprise therefore my wife was mostly in communication.

Sydney was fantastic with recommendations, communication, and preparation for the trip! She was always available (even when she was on her own PTO).

As long as Sydney is with Travel Leaders, I will never use anyone else to book travel. No other company, no other individual.

THANK YOU SYDNEY!!!

Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Dianna711 - Vancouver , Washington | Traveled to England ~ Europe
Sydney is a good listener who seems to be in tune with what the client is looking for. She asks plenty of clarifying questions regarding a client’s travel plans and needs to ensure all are on the same page. Sydney is creative, and she is able to offer ideas and make suggestions regarding a trip that you’d never think of. She is also a master of the computer and can access online travel information at the blink of an eye! An added bonus is her thoughtfulness. On a day that was scheduled for my mom and me to finalize our trip with Sydney, she brought me a fancy cupcake for my birthday!
