Cuba Small Group Specialist

My first trip to Cuba was not a was so much more, an experience really. There are the classic cars of course, and rum and cigars, but that just scratches the surface.

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!!!

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.
