Honeymoon of a lifetime!
My husband and I worked with Lee to plan our honeymoon to Greece. From the start, Lee carefully planned our trip to fit our budget and meet our travel needs. He found beautiful hotels that made us have an amazing honeymoon! Once in Greece, Lee surprised us with a bottle of champagne on our first night and the last night! Lee planned for us to go on a mythological tour, a day cruise with snorkeling, and a wine tour! All of the events were amazing! We owe a lot of thanks to Lee for planning the greatest honeymoon!

Best Travel Agent!
Lee has planned a cruise and two overseas trips for us. He not only created itineraries with experiences we were unlikely to find in our own, but he is also extremely responsive to questions. A pleasure to work with!

Lee & his team have taken care of our domestic & international travel for years not only with reliable efficiency & professionalism but always in a helpful & courteous manner. They are a trusted member of our family — one who is a veteran traveler who we can turn to anytime for unbiased advice & counsel. They offer helpful suggestions to speed us on our way & insider advice to maximize our experience. As the years have gone by, more destinations have become more affordable, crowds have become more mobile, travel routes have become more crowded, itineraries offer more variables, in-transit processing has become more complex. It has become increasingly essential to have a travel consultant who is familiar with such challenges & knows what it takes to navigate them to achieve a smooth, carefree experience. Lee and his associates are our go-to travel team whose industry knowledge & expertise have become indispensable.
