Havana

My first trip to Cuba was not a vacation...it was so much more, an experience really. And I left knowing I would go back!
How can that be, isn't it just another Island in the Caribbean? There are the classic cars of course, and rum..and cigars... but there is so much more. From the moment I looked over the city of Havana there was a sense of wonder and couldn't wait to explore and figure it out!
There are so many unknowns when traveling back in time to this mysterious country and I have the honor of working with, in my opinion, the best company in Cuba including the English speaking Cuban guides that are proud and excited to introduce you to their beautiful country and culture. They truly support the local people and make sure that coming from the US we are compliant with the reasons we are there.
If you have a group of 10 (think of that, only 5 couples) up to 40 , I can arrange a 7 day tour of this beautiful Island customized to what your group wants to see. Photographers? Hemingway buffs? Old car enthusiasts? Doctors or teachers? These special interests can all can be incorporated into a trip of a lifetime.  
I feel this is a country that you need to experience first hand before you can give advice on travel. It isn't scary in the least but the rules are very different.
What did I love the most?
The beautiful people of Cuba, you will too!

Florida Keys Specialist

If staying closer to home is appealing to you but you are looking for something totally unique, when you arrive in the Florida Keys you immediately feel that you are a world away. You can take the scenic 3 to 4 hour drive from Miami through the islands to reach Key West(although it may take you a couple days with all of the sightseeing and crab shacks on the way down) or fly directly into Key West to make the most of a long weekend or relaxing vacation. With accommodations ranging from luxury hotels, bed and breakfasts and private bungalow's there is a place for you. Activities range from ocean fishing and water sports to historical sights, great food and drink and an amazing feeling of totally getting away!

Cruise to Cuba
Linda you are so amazing at what you do! Thank you for the VIP treatment on booking our cruise to Cuba! All your tips really paid off. We didn't feel like we got the same experience as a "first timer" to Cuba. Your insights helped us explore the city like a local! Everything I needed was provided by you in advance and it was first class service. Thank you!

Fatastic Alaskan Adventure
From the very beginning, when we told her that we wanted to go Alaska what we wanted to see, Linda listened carefully and provided great options.

We indicated that Denali was a must and that we wanted more land than sea on the tour. We also wanted to travel to the Yukon and experience the Domed Train to Denali and the White Pass Train. If possible, Glacier Bay was a must.

When Linda's proposal came back, it hit all our buttons. Each and every day seemed better than the last. In other words, she not only met our expectations but exceeded them. The entire experience was a "best memory".

Holland America handled everything and we can't say enough about their professionalism and the wonderful Journey Guides. The cruise portion ,at the end of the trip, was perfect.

Family vacation
We booked a family vacation to San Diego in May and Travel Leaders Chippewa handled literally everything from our flights to car rental to finding fun activities for us to do though a "city pass". We will most definitely be using them again for our next family trip. They took the stress out of planning a vacation. I told them our budget and everything was planned for us with money to spare. So happy, thanks for everything!!!
