Incredible India

Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal

I just returned from a wonderful tour of India and visited Delhi, Agra and Jaipur.   Yes, there was a lot of traffic and horn honking, as well as cows, monkeys and mules walking around the streets.  We were able to see some unbelievable sites such as Akshardham, a Hindu Temple, a city tour of old and new Delhi, we took a rickshaw ride through the streets, and visited many temples.  At the Sikh Temple in Delhi, they feed the masses here of over a thousand people daily.  We were able to go into the kitchen and see how they can make enough food and feed them so quickly. We had meditation the first few days of our trip which really helped you think and refocus on life.  We had excellent food and the curry was wonderful.  After Delhi, we drove to Agra and visited Fort Agra which is where the Emperor used to live.  Now you can see the emperor’s palace, but the remainder of the Fort is a military installation.  The next morning, we drove to the Taj Mahal to see it at sunrise – unbelievable!  You have seen pictures of the Taj, but it is so unreal when you are actually there.  It was a highlight to see one of the wonders of the world. We were then on to Jaipur.  This was a very clean city, but still inundated with traffic.  We visited the Water Palace where the women sat behind the screens to see what was happening without being seen.  We then rode elephants up to Amber Fort.  There was a wall around the fort, just like the Great Wall.  We were able to visit stores where they made camel hair rugs, jewelry stores and to the bazaar for souvenirs.  Then it was time to return to Delhi after a week of exploring India.  We had a fabulous time and a great tour company for our Incredible India Tour.

Very Professional, Easy to work with, close to home that I can stop by with any questions.. Knows what is going on with my travels and keeps us updated with any changes...
When we had to cancel our cruise in 2014 due to a emergency medical situation, she was on top of things, making it easy to make other arrangements which was a very big help...When we rebooked the following year, she was right there making the arrangements for us. We enjoy working with her and will continue to do so.....

Viking Rhine River Cruise is a "Bucket List" trip.

A fabulous trip
LaVonne spent lots of time with me helping me plan our trip. She was very patient and gave good advice when I was confused or unsure of something. I had a small problem with a reservation while in Scotland. I emailed LaVonne, and she took care of it for me. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

The all inclusive resort exceeded our expectation

A carefree trip
LaVonne was a pleasure to work with. When we stopped in at Travel Leaders we kind of knew what we wanted but weren't sure of everything we had to do to get our trip booked. We explained to LaVonne what we wanted and she took over from there. She showed us our options, explaining them all, and made all the necessary bookings. All our flights got us where we needed to go, our land tour went off without a hitch and the cruise was a great way to end our 2 week adventure. We looked at booking our trip online but there were questions we couldn't find answers for. LaVonne had all the answers and even gave us ideas on excursions to take. We walked out of there feeling great knowing our trip was finally booked and everything was in place for a great trip. Thank you Lavonne for a great trip; 2 weeks of fun, adventure and relaxation. We couldn't have had such a great time without your help!
