The Best Trip Ever!

Jackie was very helpful in all stages of the process from offering us options of where we could go, prices, resort options, transportation, documents needed and then planned some day trips for our group. She is very responsive to questions and answers very quickly. We had an amazing trip because of all her planning!

Perfect Vacation! Perfect Travel Agent!

Reviewed By Katie W. - Centerville, MN | Traveled to Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Working with Jackie was a pleasure from the first moment. During all the COVID restrictions, with policies and practices changing daily she navigated the hoops and jumps without causing any panic. Even with hotel changes and COVID testing requirements being implemented we had the best trip ever! We will NEVER book another vacation without Jackie again.

Reviewed By An extremely thankful customer - St Paul, Minnesota | Traveled to Palm Springs ~ California ~ USA
Spring break 2016 :) Our family was looking forward to our first trip to California. We unfortunately were rushing our daughter to the ER just a few hours before our early Sunday morning flight. We contacted Jackie, our travel agent (on a Sunday) and told her we were in the hospital. Jackie was amazing! Extremely helpful!! She got on it immediately! She was in contact with everyone from the airlines, to the resort, to the rental car. The next day, once we were out of the hospital and ready to go, she had our trip, for all 4 of us, rescheduled and we were leaving Monday afternoon. Without any monetary penalties!! Who can do that- Jackie, that's who! We won't travel anywhere without Jackie's assistance and if you are smart you will do the same!

Jackie Taylor responded:
I am glad that we were able to work together, and still allow you to enjoy your spring break vacation! Palm Springs was waiting for you to arrive!

Family Birthday Trip

Reviewed By Tonia - Minnesota | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Hi Jackie,

We had a wonderful time at this resort. The resort was beautiful. Great service. Huge variety of food. Lots of high quality shows. Lots of pool activities. We only dined at the steakhouse which was fabulous for the specialty restaurants. We had 2 birthday boys (my brother turned 50 and my son turned 15) this week, both of whom enjoyed the singing by the staff in the dining room. LOL! Overall we would definitely stay here again! Thanks again for all of your help in making this a great vacation for my family! Hopefully we will work with you again for any of our future travels!!!

Thanks again,
Tonia

Customer Testimonials

Jamaica with Friends

Jackie, Thank you so much for all your help in setting us up on our wonderful vacation. The resort and the people were awesome. We couldn't have had a better time. Jamie and I were very impressed with everything. We would recommend the Jewel Dunns River to anyone who asked. Thank you for the bottle of wine waiting in our room and for requesting that the resort put our room and the Webb's room right next to each other. The weather was perfect and we didn't want to come home. Next time we are looking to book a vacation we will not hesitate to contact you. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING !!!!

Our Jamaica Adventure!

We had an amazing vacation!! The day we got there it had rained all day and every day prior for a week. We got lucky and had wonderful weather!! The Jewel Dunn's River was an absolutely wonderful resort......not one complaint....okay well maybe I could have had a flatter pillow! We went to the Blue Hole which was an amazing excursion!!! I now know I love resorts without kids also!! Bonus since myself and Jamie both do daycare. Thanks for sending the wine to us, it was a nice thought! The Mobay Club was also a nice addition!! Thanks for helping us to go on another amazing vacation.....we appreciate you!!

Much needed R & R

Hey Jackie - just wanted to let you know the trip ended up great! We found an awesome area of town I had ever been to before that had so many little bars and locals mixed with ex-pats it was awesome. I did some of my own ex-pat research! The hotel did lack in some areas but the service, people, food and drinks were awesome! Just not much for pool parties and partying in general there but we did our partying in town so all good.

Excellent Bachelorette party and honeymoon

We recently used Travel Leaders to plan our honeymoon as well as my bachelorette party in Vegas through your representative, Jackie Taylor and I wanted to send a review of her services for future prospects thinking about going with a travel agent (and Jackie, specifically). We had a GREAT experience! Jackie was so helpful when we were planning the bachelorette trip to Vegas, assisting us with coordinating multiple flights and getting us a great deal during a very busy weekend on the strip! She was wonderful in helping my husband and I plan our honeymoon. Jackie suggested a beautiful resort in Jamaica and we had an amazing time during our trip last week. We would have never considered Jamaica had Jackie not weighed in. She was prompt, fun, energetic, and caring during the entire process, which was stressful at times. We are so glad that we decided to use Jackie's services throughout this past year and will definitely be reaching out to her in the future for our travel needs.

LGBT Travel to Mexico/Riviera Maya/Punta Cana

I would like to commend Jackie on the amazing job she did on planning our vacation. With the abundance of all-inclusive resorts, it was a daunting challenge trying to pick one on my own. After contacting Jackie, I found her expertise in this area a breath of fresh air. After telling her about what we were looking for in a resort, she was able to pinpoint a perfect property. The resort not only met our expectations, but exceeded them. From here on out, I’m entrusting Jackie with all my travel needs… it just makes sense to use a travel agent
