A great time on Kauai
Karen did an excellent job setting up our Hawaii trip. Flight connections worked well. The condo on Kauai she selected far exceeded our expectations. The beach, the grounds, and accommodations were outstanding.

50th Wedding Aniversary Celebration
We were looking for a place our whole family could go to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This meant finding a place children, teenagers and adults could all enjoy. Karen gave us several options and we settled on Tulum, MX. Karen made all the air travel, local transportation and lodging arrangements for us. Gave us good suggestions of things to do there. Everything was provided as promised. She is a great vacation planner.

Karen's invaluable assistance!
Tina and I both have been very happy with all of Karen's efforts in coordinating trips we've taken the past several years. I'll come in with a destination and time frame to to work with, and Karen always has great suggestions and knowledge on when to go, where to stay, options to consider, things to remember when planning a vacation.
Having a packet of travel info, vouchers and a printed record has proven invaluable for us.
Karen and Travel Leaders saved us in Spain this Fall when we had an airport snafu. I highly recommend Karen if you're looking for assistance in travel adventures. Tina and I look forward to working with in the future.
