Customer Testimonials

Destination Wedding Success!

Jessica has been extremely helpful for all of our guests that attended our wedding in Puerto Vallarta. She has helped us get the best rates and made sure everyone in the group understood their itinerary. I was very overwhelmed with my wedding planning and was relieved when I could trust her to take care of all of my guests. She has helped the travel portion of our wedding run very smoothly! We are so thankful for her help.

Honeymoon in Jamaica

Jessica helped us so much last year when it came time to plan our honeymoon! We both had heard of so many cool places to go, and things to do for our honeymoon, and we were feeling extremely overwhelmed before we decided to come see her. She helped us figure out exactly what we were looking for! One of the best parts was when was able to get a lower rate for the hotel and flights than what we had expected. We had such a blast the whole week, and it was absolutely perfect! It was the trip of a lifetime!

Peru Adventure

Our Peru trip was outstanding! All the hosts and guides from Condor Travel were excellent, very knowledgeable and courteous. We loved the food, and the Machu Picchu and Sacred Valley tours were fantastic. We also were blessed with outstanding weather, as you can see from three photos attached from our first day at Machu Picchu. We appreciated being able to acclimatize in the Sacred Valley first, at the lovely former monastery in Urubamba, and enjoyed the food and sights at Casa Del Sol at the base of Machu Picchu. The train ride was also a blast. Thanks for a well-orchestrated adventure. (Please see stunning photos in photo album)

Jessica was extremely helpful

Had a complicated trip to plan and she both worked hard to find flights to meet my needs. And managed to keep it below my budget!! My husband has also used Travel Leaders for his travel needs. Will definitely be using Travel Leaders and recommending them to my friends!

Best travel agent ever!
Jessica was extremely helpful with special requests and very quick in getting the job done, but the best thing about working with Jessica is her sparkiling personality. She was so very pleasant, helpful, and kind! She should be your employee of the year in my book! I was very very impressed! Thank you Jessica! You made this a great experience!

Family Trip of a Lifetime!
Jessica was quick to respond to my calls and emails. She helped plan our first international family vacation and everything was perfect! She worked hard to stay within our budget and yet was able to give us upgrades when available.

12th Man in LONDON
Jessica is always amazing! We have used her for many of our vacations domestically and she never disappointed us. Which is why we entrusted her w/our first international trip and we couldn't have been happier! The trip was to LONDON to see the Seahawks first game over seas. Our budget was tight but Jessica worked her magic and was able to meet all of our request with in the budget. The flight was direct (which was amazing), the car service was great made us feel extra special having a driver w/our name waiting at arrival. The hotel was in South Kensington which really was centrally located to all of the major sites. The hotel room was much larger than I had expected for the "european" reviews, it came with a breakfast and $15 credit for evening drinks or in our case much needed deserts!
