Customer Testimonials

80th Birthday Celebration!

I asked Mel to help me plan my mother's 80th birthday vacation to London, Scotland and Ireland. There were 7 of us traveling. She helped us find great prices for our airplane tickets. She found out that the trains were booking far in advance and seats were running out. She advised us to buy our tickets quickly and booked them for us. She helped us with a lot of the logistics of our trip since we were doing it on our own without a tour. She was very useful and I will surely ask for her help for our next big vacation.

Mel was very helpful!

By random draw of the phone lines we were connected with Mel last year for WIIL Rock's Cabin Fever Getaway trip. Mel was very helpful, asking the questions we hadn't thought of, and follow up emails or calls to be certain of how we wanted our trip to be. So, of course we kept her info and booked again this year. The whole TLD team is a pleasure to work with.

Trip went off without a hitch!

Mel is a consummate profession in her work. She has planned trips for me and my family to Europe, the Caribbean, and Mexico. Her recommendations were always on target and she goes out of her way to ensure we were prepared and that the trip went off without a hitch.

Mexican Adventure!

I have dealt with Mel for 4-5 years for my vacations. She is polite, caring and effective for planning our vacations. She checked on everything from prices, to the hotel you want and rooms. I would not plan a vacation with out her.

Great Agent!

I was introduced to Mel by an associate of mine who highly recommended her. It was an excellent referral and Mel does go the "extra mile" to satisfy her clients - sometimes who have unreasonable changes. Great agent.

Made my dream happen!

I was finally planning a vacation away to Florida after not having any time off in several years due to life circumstances. I walked in to Travel Leaders and met Mel...If I could finally get away I knew exactly what I wanted, which was somewhere on a beach with an ocean view where I could relax to the sounds of the waves at night. Mel was so easy to work with and made my dream happen! I came back and shared pictures and used her on my next vacation and will be using her again. Thanks Mel!

Booking a hassle free vacation!

Mel is wonderful. I have worked with her now for years. She knows what I like, and the things I tend to worry about. She makes my precious time off worry and hassle free. And she has directed me to travel experiences I never would have found on my own! Many thanks from a grateful client!

Dream Honeymoon brought to you by Mel!
Everything was taken care of from beginning to end. She went above and beyond to make sure that our honeymoon was everything we wished it would be.

We gave her an extensive list of requirements, including LGBTQ friendly, and she showed us resorts that only fit our specific criteria, unlike some agents where you feel they are pushing certain resorts because of kickbacks they may be receiving; not Mel!

The little touches like champagne upon arrival, dinner on the beach, and the romantic turndown service were things she went out of her way to set up for us before our trip. Communication was 5 stars through the entirety of the booking process and stay. A quick email or text and we had all the info we would request.

I highly recommend Mel to anyone who is looking to book a vacation, she truly goes above and beyond for her clients!

Most beautiful and perfect vacation
Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful in planning the exact vacation we dreamed of. Everything from the island we stayed on, to the hotel, to tickets/flying/car rental, to suggestions of things to do would have been a nightmare without her great communication and customer service skills. She took all the stress of planning off our shoulders and was prompt and explained everything thoroughly. Mel did an exceptional job and she is just a complete joy to work with.
