Kim always kept our best interests in mind. :-)

Reviewed By Steve P - Rochester, MN | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Kim was always very helpful and made herself very accessible to us.

Kim was willing to flex her personal schedule to respond to emails, phone calls, and to meet with us during the planning of a week long, once in a lifetime adventure for 13 family members to Alaska.

Our large group contained people aged 2-78. 2 had special dietary needs and one had walking limitations. Kim took all of this into consideration and communicated with restaurants and hotels at each stop to ensure they could accommodate our group appropriately.

Kim was always very pleasant and genuinely concerned about ensuring the best experience possible to ensure the life-long dream of one grandma to take her family to Alaska was realized.

Great Family Spring Break

Reviewed By Tim & Marcia - Altura, MN | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Had a wonderful experience working with Kim. Normally do the planning ourselves, but were interested in trying something different, and we were glad we used Kim and Travel Leaders. We were planning a spring break trip with our Son and looking to stay at an All Inclusive. We had only been to Cancun/Riviera Maya area in the past, and Kim suggested trying Puerto Vallarta. It was cheaper and it was a new area we wanted to see, so we went with that. Having never been to that area, we knew nothing about the hotels, so it was very helpful having Kim to suggest a property that would be right for us, and she delivered! She suggested the Buenaventura Grand. The location was perfect, right on the ocean and walking distance to the Malecon and to many attractions in town. From our first contact with Kim all the way through the process she was very attentive to our needs and even checked with us when we returned to make sure everything went great on our trip.

Adventure Like No Other

Reviewed By JK - MN | Traveled to Europe
The trekking trip through Greece, Croatia and Slovenia was the trip of a lifetime! The private guides in each destination were superb and really made us feel comfortable and cared for. The lodging was fantastic and the food even better! They where very helpful with making suggestions or taking us to areas that were not on our scheduled path. Sometimes if felt like it took longer than expected for Kim to get back to us with updates from the guides, but she did make sure that this experience was flawless. I am excited for the next adventure we coordinate with Kim.

Hiking in Costa Rica

Reviewed By Tony - Rosemount, MN | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
The trip was fantastic! I absolutely loved the guided hikes in Corcovado National Park at the Sirena Station. Our guide, Kevin, was excellent and I would highly recommend him to any other visitors in the future. Unfortunately we did not get to do whitewater rafting at Rios Tropicales, but that was due to unusual amounts of rain fall. I definitely plan on returning to do it because our guide, Louis (I think that's how you spell it), was great and the ecolodge at Rios Tropicales was beautiful with great service.

Costa Rica Sun Tours was great and made sure we were always taken care of. I definitely plan on returning and hope to do a bit more exploring in Central/South America when I do.

After discussing this trip with my parents, they are now considering trying to do a similar trip. If they decide to pursue it I will definitely send them your way.

Thanks for all your help and for the fantastic trip!

We had a small problem at the hotel, but Kim fixed that for us right away.
The tours, transfers, the VIP Polynesian Cultural Center experience and arrangements for this group of nine was seamless! Kim met with us personally to review tour options and to review the documents as well.

Generational Girls Weekend

Reviewed By Tracie - St Charles MN | Traveled to New York ~ USA
I was trying to plan a girls trip to New York City for my Mom, Mother -in-law, and my 2 daughters and I.

As most people know planning these things are very over whelming, especially if it is a surprise.

I finally called Kim Steiger, she was a great relief. I told her what I was looking for, and with in a couple days she had given me

all the information I needed.

She set me up in a great hotel, downtown, in walking distance of everything.

We booked the flights and hotel and everything went so smooth.

I strongly recommend Kim to all of my friends, when they are looking for vacation packages, she was fast, friendly, and just what I needed. I will definitely go thru Kim for all of my future vacation planning.

She offered me a great experience and a trip of a lifetime.

Thanks Kim!

Maui-Hawaii Highly Reccomend

Reviewed By K.Kester - Mankato | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Kim has been a pleasure to work with over the last couple of months. She booked my boyfriend and I a trip to Hawaii this spring. We were thinking about going over the summer but Kim recommended looking into the spring-time due to the whale season over there. She was great when it came to these small details. Kim was very patient when it came to all the questions I had as it was our first travels along.

The Scottish Highlands were my absolute favorite, totally loved it and want to go back! We hiked at Lock Ness, drove around the Isle of Sky, and saw the Wallace Monument. But my younger daughter's and my absolute favorite part of the trip was Tulloch Castle! Thank you for all your hard work putting the trip together!

Beautiful trip

Reviewed By Heidi - Kasson | Traveled to Norwegian Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Kim was so helpful in arranging our trip. She looked at different times to help insure a less expensive price. When I first tried to schedule the trip by myself, I didn't realize all the variables that you need to consider in order to make sure you can get from one destination to the next. Kim helped us navigate our choices with little time on our part

Beware

Reviewed By T.Errthum - Rochester, MN | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
After researching, we selected Kim as our travel agent because she had several years of experience, high star rating and she was local in our area. Our experience was less than ideal from the beginning! Kim's lack of attention and detail made the planning very stressful. She charged my credit card without my approval (she never once apologized for the error and left it for me to resolve with my bank). She also left me a message (including credit card information) for another client (when I contacted her about this, she again never acknowledged her error). Her lack of knowledge on Ireland cost my family unnecessary expense while on vacation (example: the car rental agency did not have car seats for the kids, so we had to go purchase just for the day). Knowing Kim has soo many previous positive reviews, perhaps she was struggling with personal issues. HOWEVER she never apologized for errors or wished us well on our trip. Her lack of professionalism was overwhelming.
Kim Steiger (Schott) responded:
I don't know what I can say other than I am sorry if you had any troubles on your trip. It is my goal to collaborate with my customers and to share my personal travel experience and my professional advice with all of the customers I work with so that they enjoy the trip they are expecting. I did call the car rental company to confirm they had car seats at that location. My track record with my customers has proven that I have done just that and my list of repeat customers would agree.

European River Cruise

Reviewed By Brenda - Tama IA | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
For my first time traveling to Europe Kim made this a seamless experience. From the upgraded seats to comfort class, the balcony cabin, transfers and shore excursion. She also recommended a first class cruise company, AMA Waterways. The service, food, shore excursion options and the staff were courteous, helpful, and very customer service oriented. My family and I have used Kim in the past and will continue to do so in the future. I work in the customer service industry and Kim showed great professionalism and care with these arrangements.

A Wonderful Family Trip to Cancun

Reviewed By Melissa - Waconia, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Kim recently booked a family vacation to Cancun for our group of 13. It was much easier to have Kim handle all of our reservations instead of having to worry about those details myself. I like that Kim has been to many of the resorts in the Cancun area and was able to tell us firsthand what to expect. Kim was very friendly and answered all of our questions thoroughly. I have already sent Kim three other referrals because people get so overwhelmed trying to narrow down options online. Why not let a real expert handle the details so all you have to do is pack your sunscreen and enjoy the sun!?

Kim Steiger (Schott) responded:

Kim organized an Alaska experience I will never forget! I traveled via the Alaska Rail through the areas I wanted to experience. The hotels were perfect the Gold Star service and food on the Rail was outstanding and the excursions were even better. Via a small boat I got up and close to the glaciers, was served a cocktail using the glacier ice and the guide was fantastic.

More AMAZING than we could have ever dreamed!

Reviewed By HAPPY TRAVELERS! - Rochester, MN | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
When my husband and I started our planning for our trip, we had no idea where we wanted to go. We were going to go to Hawaii, but I wanted something EXCITING. When Kim told us about Costa Rica and the amazing things to do there, I was sold immediately. It took my husband longer, but we decided to go for it, and honestly, I never dreamed a vacation could be so perfect!

Yes, there were things that didn't turn out as we had hoped, but that is life. We went with them. We had so much fun! Costa Rica is an AMAZING place and the more time you have, the more things you can do.

Thank you Kim for helping us have a trip that we could not have dreamt of! :-)

Repeat Customer

Reviewed By Live for Vacation! - St. Charles, MN | Traveled to Mexico
Kim has always been so helpful. I have utilized her services multiple times and it has always been a pleasant experience. Even when some of our group travelers have originated in different states she coordinated everything successfully. I also feel the bonus of going back to her is that she knows my likes and dislikes and veers me to good choices accordingly.

Kim has also stayed within our defined budget (sometimes quite restricted) so I have appreciated her willingness to be patient and keep looking. She is dedicated to her clients.

I think it is Kim's personable approach that resonates and set her apart from the rest. She makes you feel as though she sincerely cares about your vacation experience and wants to do all she can!

I will definitely be reaching out for our next vacation!

40th Birthday In Isla Mujeres

Kim Steiger was a delight to work with when planning my 40th birthday trip! This was my first time using a travel agent; I had always taken care of my travel arrangements myself. I am now at a point where I do not want the responsibility of planning. I wanted easy and accommodating. Kim took care of it all; she was responsive, professional and understood my desire to make it a memorable trip. The trip was flawless; she took care of flight, hotel and transports. She even arranged a meeting with a local guide to set up various activities, including spearfishing! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone planning a getaway.
