Can't Wait to Go Back!

Reviewed By Anglophile - Oxford, MS | Traveled to England ~ Europe
Sonia was helpful, responsive, patient, and enthusiastic about helping us plan our 30th wedding anniversary trip to the UK. Her detailed research and professional knowledge provided us with peace of mind as we planned the myriad details of car rental, lodging, and train schedules--and ensured some WOW moments for us during the journey. AND she was always available to answer questions before and during our once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Amazing trip to South America

Reviewed By Dom - Woodbury, MN | Traveled to Sao Paulo ~ Brazil ~ South America
I wanted to go to Brazil to visit some friends in multiple locations and had a very limited window to work with. Sonia was super friendly, she helped me work around my personal plans and worked out an itinerary that fit my needs perfectly. Got a good deal on my flights (I was comparing flights at home) and a really good insurance plan to go along with it! I was also alerted to slight departure time changes which I really appreciated. Overall I had an amazing time in Brazil and a great experience with Sonia!

Sonia exceeded my expectations at every turn. I have never taken my 2 younger sons on a vacation via an airplane. Sonias hatd work and communication made it go smoothly. For me it was effortless to plan and take the trip of ours. Not only was she very knowledgable about the disney process, she went above and beyond again by creating a card stock anouncemnt disney design for me to use to announce our trip as a christmas presenet. I would certainly reccommend her to anyone who is planning to travel anywhere

Wonderful trip!

Reviewed By Aleena - Woodbury, MN | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Sonia was excellent in helping us plan our trip to the Dominican Republic. She was extremely friendly and was able to work around any issues that came up while planning (like a date change). She made things stress-free and really worked with us to make our vacation great. She made phone calls when needed and set up everything ahead of time for us. It was easy to follow the finalized itinerary and we never had any issues while down there. She was great and I’ll definitely use her for future vacation planning! I’d highly recommend her for anyone planning a trip!

The best family trip ever!!!

Reviewed By CB - Oakdale | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
A family trip for 10, everything booked 5 months ahead. I made many changes along the way & a 11th hour significant change; Sonia calmly took care of all. We were off on our vacation, having a wonderful time. The day before we were to fly home I end up in the hospital – Sonia calmly dealt with all the travel changes. It was scary times; this was all happening at the same time Covid-19 was hitting the US, things were crazy. Sonia checked in with me constantly & went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. I am sure this was her busiest time ever due to Covid-19, she made me feel like her #1 priority - I have no doubt she made all her customers feel the same.
When I started planning this trip I really pondered whether to do it myself or get a Travel Agent, I am so thankful I got a travel agent & am thankful it was Sonia/Travel Leaders – she went out of her way to take care of us before & during the craziest time in the travel industry w/Covid-19. Thank you, Sonia!

Sonia is very professional. We told her the kind vacation and area we were interested in visiting. Sonia quickly followed up with different options for us. Once we chose our destination we met with her to discuss details of our trip. Throughout the process she kept in touch with us.

Sonia also helped me book a trip to New York. Due to the coronavirus we had to cancel. She let us know our options and cheerfully refunded our money.

Thank you Sonia we will be in touch when we want to travel again!
