My Travel Stories

Cruising the Nile

Nekhab, was one of Egypt's oldest and most important cities, the capital of the south before the pyramids were built. Nekhab, now El Kab, dropped off the tourist circuit long ago. But the city remains - or, at least, you can still view the great outer wall, temple ruins and some tombs - and its existence...Read more.

Customer Testimonials

40th Birthday In Isla Mujeres

Kim Steiger was a delight to work with when planning my 40th birthday trip! This was my first time using a travel agent; I had always taken care of my travel arrangements myself. I am now at a point where I do not want the responsibility of planning. I wanted easy and accommodating. Kim took care of it all; she was responsive, professional and understood my desire to make it a memorable trip. The trip was flawless; she took care of flight, hotel and transports. She even arranged a meeting with a local guide to set up various activities, including spearfishing! I would highly recommend Kim to anyone planning a getaway.

Removing the Worry
Kim takes care of every detail ensuring a vacation is not work! Going through Kim allowed us to plan ahead and actually enjoy vacation rather than trying to piece the trip together ourselves. Dealing with an agent gives that extra sense of security knowing things have been planned appropriately. She listens to her clients and delivers above expectation! Her passion for the business truly shows.

Awesome Family Vacation
Kim was extremely helpful in planning our family vacation. We had a huge group of 20 and trying to please everyone and meet everyone's requirements was never easy but Kim was so great at getting us more info and finding us other places to compare and answering all of our questions. She was there the whole way, even after we booked she was answering questions up until the day we left. I would highly recommend Travel Leaders and especially Kim!

Kim is The Best!
Our trip to Hawaii was more than we ever expected! From the hotels that were perfectly located and provided phenomenal service to the cultural experiences. Kim made sure we experienced everything on our checklist and gave us great ideas for tucked away restaurants that had fantastic food and service. Having worked with Kim for years I continue to tell all of my friends and family about her services. She always knows how to make us feel like we are her "only" client's and get's us excited when we meet with her for our ideas for the following year! Thank you, you are the Best!!
