I'll find just the perfect resort and destination for you and your budget.

My Travel Specialties

European River Cruise

Have you seen those Viking River commercials on PBS? Well, the river cruises look just like that!

  Viking is one of my favorites. I took a Danube cruise in November. We stopped and visited all those wonderful Christmas markets along the way. The snow was falling gently, everyone was out walking...

My Travel Stories

Costa Rica ziplines, butterflies and monkeys!

A few years ago I traveled around Costa Rica for a week. What an amazing trip!

  I went on one of the longest ziplines in Costa Rica located in Manuel Antonio Natl Park. A funny thing happened to me that I will never forget!

Customer Testimonials

Another great trip!

Most recently my self, my wife and two teenage kids went to Punta Cana 3/18 - 3/24/2016. Anytime I had a question, Kathy was always available to help. About a week before we left, Kathy got us upgraded to a NOW resort. If you have not stayed in one of these resorts, you won't be disappointed. She got us the upgrade for the same price and had an awesome time. The reason I keep coming back to Kathy, and Travel Leaders is we get the same great service every time.They make travel so easy that all you have to do is show up to the airport. She even solved a small hiccup that happened at the end of our trip that didn't even involve the travel company. They go above and beyond and have a customer for life. Thanks Kathy and Travel Leaders

My Reviews

outstanding service
Our local Travel Leaders and Kathy Yarian are fantastic
We have used their services for years. The attention to detail has made our travels fantastic. Never a hiccup no matter how complicated our itinerary. Currently Kathy is helping us navigate changing plans for Spain and Portugal in light of the pandemic. She has taken the worry out of rescheduling plans.

Things couldn't have been better!!!
Kathy put together an affordable, fun filled, great sight seeing, awesome hotel accommodations trip for us to Spain! Being new travelers to Europe, Kathy took care of every detail for us. She perfectly planned all our excursions and tours , each was better than the next but still with free time built in. And when our flight was cancelled on the way home, Kathy was right there on top of things getting us on a new flight in no time. We were so comfortable in Kathy's hands and look forward to planning another vacation with her soon! Give Kathy at Travel Leaders a try, You will not be disappointed!

Great family vacation!
Kathy was very knowledgeable in guiding us in choosing the Now Jade resort for our vacation. She also assisted us in making sure we received our refund for a cancellation for one of our parties.
