Being Brave - Traveling Alone

Reviewed By Darlene - Bow, WA | Traveled to Spain ~ Europe
Kimberly is great to work with. She is flexible, kind and fun. I plan to book a lot of travel with her in the years to come.
She has helped me transition from traveling with my husband to traveling alone now that he has passed. I appreciate her support a great deal.

Amazing Help On a Complicated European Trip

Reviewed By Darlene - Bow, WA | Traveled to Barcelona ~ Spain ~ Europe
Kimberly is great to work with. She helped me, my sister and two of my friends with fairly a complicated trip to Spain flying into and out of Barcelona and Madrid and including trains and hotels. She helped me coordinate with my various travel companions for the different stages of the trip. I appreciated her assistance and suggestions tremendously.
Kimberly is fun to work with, extremely detail oriented and has lots of creative solutions. I don't know what I would have done with out her.

And I am so glad she recommended travel insurance because one of the individuals involved fell and suffered a serious injury while we were abroad. The travel without insurance was invaluable and will save my friend around $10,000.

The trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Jim n Gretchen - Lk Stevens WA | Traveled to Europe
Kim has been a powerful asset. I was nervous about taking on all the minute details that can make or break a good time . I told Kim what I wanted generally and she helped me shape and fine tune until it became specific. When we were out adventuring she checked in to wish us well and when we checked in if a hiccup arose she was quick to resolve it. It was a huge weight off of our minds. We're very grateful for the wonderful experiences that we had as a result of working with Kim.

Last Minute, but Smooth

We so enjoyed our trip, glad you got us scheduled and all for us to be able to get through some of the luggage and all. It didn't take as long to get through the airports, thank you for getting our last minute flight. We may go in November and will be sure to deal with you again when we go!

Relax and Enjoy

Reviewed By Mike & Roberta - Burlington, WA | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
My wife and I recently booked a vacation with Travel Leaders. Our agent, Kimberly Riley, did a fantastic job of putting together a package that met all our wants and needs. She took into consideration what traffic would be like going to and from the airports, gave recommendations on hotels based on her experiences and even suggested not renting a car but rather using a car service (which was a money & stress saver). Every aspect of our vacation was taken care of without worry, including multiple hotels, theme parks and air travel. It was so nice to leave the planning and booking in the hands of a professional. Using a travel partner like Kimberly allowed us to just relax and enjoy.

Worked like clockwork

Reviewed By Dr. Barb - Binghamton, New York | Traveled to Panama Canal ~ Panama ~ Central America
I’ve always done my own travel arrangements but decided on this big trip to have some assistance. The work I had done before hand helped me to make decisions ahead of talking with Kimberly but she did the footwork and made all the arrangements and finalize what I had found myself. Her knowledge of San Diego for our pre cruise days were a bonus. Everything that she arranged worked like clockwork.

First Trip Abroad

Reviewed By Danyelle - Bonney Lake, WA | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
We have returned from our adventure and would like to say that we had a good time! Not only did we learn a lot about the history of Paris but I also got to learn about my family's heritage. To find the park that the Eiffel Tower stands in bears my family's name was a happy surprise to me. I even found my family's coat of arms in one of the palaces we visited on our trip.

The tours you booked for us were great, "Paris in a Day" was my favorite by far. It is an amazing way to really learn about and see Paris.

At night, we found that pretty much everyone who is not a tourist is sitting along the river with wine and a meal having a good time. Doesn't matter on the day. It is a fun time. Also a good way to see the locals and meet some new people.

Paris is pretty friendly to those who are there to see their city. We were hard pressed to find someone who did not speak English.

Thank you again for your help. You will most definitely be hearing from us when we go to plan next year's

Happiest Trip o Earth!!

Reviewed By Sara M. - Shelton, WA | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
I tried booking our Disneyland trip on my own and was so overwhelmed by everything. We reached out to Kimberly and she put together the perfect trip and I didn’t have a headache! She took everything we wanted and was able to put together the perfect package for us. She got us as close to Disneyland within our budget and only a block away, at a place that I wasn’t even considering when trying to put our trip together on my own. For the most part everything went off without a hitch- there was a minor hiccup but it was on the Resorts end and it was worked out very quickly. I will never try to book a trip like this on my own again. Kimberly will be our go to!

Family Trip to LA

Reviewed By Danyelle & Josh - Bonney Lake, WA | Traveled to Los Angeles ~ California ~ USA
I wanted to let you know that we had a good time on our trip and to thank you for your help in making it happen. The girls had a good time especially at Universal’s park. They particularly liked the Harry Potter section. The only down side I would have to say is that we weren’t able to stay longer, so I can see us going back to LA sometime to finish exploring. Thank you again!

Dream Alaskan Vacation

Reviewed By Marti - Marysville, WA | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
I have dreamed of an Alaskan adventure as far back as I can remember.
Yes, I wanted the cruise, but I wanted the land as well. After years of dreaming and becoming frustrated trying to put this together on my own, we are finally going. I handed Kim Riley at Travel Leaders my dream package ideas and she helped me bring it to life. Kim handled everything.
In August we will set off to Vancouver, BC where we will begin our 20 day journey to the Yukon, Fairbanks, Denali, Anchorage, plus a 7 day cruise back to Vancouver. Kim is handling those confusing things like transportation to and from Vancouver, special upgrades on the cruise ship, the best location for our stateroom , etc. And if I have a question, she is just a quick phone call away. This whole process has been so much easier using a trained and competent professional like Kim!
I am so pleased with our results and excited to embark on my dream vacation. Thank you Kim Riley!

A Trip of a Lifetime

Reviewed By CaroleS - Mount Vernon, WA | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Kimberly has our hearty thanks for taking the pain out of making travel arrangements for our cruise to Alaska. Not having to enter the maize of internet travel sites to find the best accommodations for us and coordinate the transportation to and from Vancouver, BC, proved to be the best decision we made for our trip. Kimberly was knowledgeable and efficient in making all the arrangements for us and our friends and communicated with us all along the way. I am happy to know that she is available to help us with our future travel plans. She and her agency still priovide a valuable service for those of us who don't have the time or patience to do it ourselves.

Rhine Cruise and Italy Adventure

Reviewed By Tim and Kerri - Bothell, WA | Traveled to Europe
Kimberly worked hard to make our trip convenient for traveling to many places with two carry-ons and two backpacks. We were able to get to and from our planes, trains, boats, buses and hotels without having to hire porters or taxis. Accommodations were in convenient locations and easy to find. Kimberly is very pleasant to work with and caring.

AMAZING to say the least

Reviewed By Beverly - Monroe, GA | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
The trip was AMAZING to say the least. it's hard to put into words and hard to say what my favorite part was. Enjoyed every day and wish we would have had longer. Staying in New Jersey was a good decision and the bus ride was the best way. The hotel was clean and quiet, we were right on the Hudson and had a great view of New York! Found a great seafood restaurant to eat at.

The Broadway show you booked for us was amazing. We probably wouldn't use the Hop On Hop Off bus again, it took a long time to get where we were going and on the days it was raining the inside seats filled up too fast.

We did Washington on Sunday and I think we walked 20 miles!

Thanks again for all you did, our trip was amazing!

Outer Bank Experience - Smooth Planning

Reviewed By Mary Frances - Everett, WA | Traveled to Outer Banks ~ North Carolina ~ USA
Kimberly Riley was extremely helpful with my trip to the Outer Banks, NC. I had never been there, and the trip was on short notice so I left searching for accommodations and flights up to Kimberly. She did a lot of research and work on a unfamiliar location and she found wonderful hotels in great locations with all the amenities I preferred. The trip to the outer banks involves a long drive and ferry to catch and Kimberly arranged flights that allowed enough travel time to make good connections and have time to enjoy the car trips. The hotel staff in Ocracoke mentioned they enjoyed talking to Kimberly and asked about her when I arrived, which was nice to hear and a tribute to Kimberly. The Outer Banks are known for beautiful beaches, historical lighthouses and museums and it was a great place to visit. With Kimberly’s help and arrangements, I had a wonderfully planned and enjoyable vacation.

Helped tie up loose ends!

Reviewed By Kelly - Vancouver, WA | Traveled to Copenhagen ~ Denmark ~ Europe
The hotel you found in Odense was comfortable with a great location. We loved the cake and tea in the afternoon and breakfast was a full spread. The customer service was perfect, it was exactly what we were looking for while we recovered from jet lag.

The hotel in Copenhagen was not as customer oriented, but location was really good.

The tours you booked at Kronsberg and Windsor were fun and the skip the line at the Eiffel Tower was an excellent benefit.

Thank you for putting together all the loose ends of our vacation. The hotels and locations were ideal for us and we felt safe and had a lot of fun.
