Been there, Done that!

I delight in helping my you fulfill your vacation dreams. Having traveled with my family and spent quality time in 42 of the 50 states, I have seen the USA from Boston to Hawaii. I especially enjoy and specialize in planning vacations to Alaska, U.S.National Parks, and to All Inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. I have been on over 20 different cruises aboard the ships of 6 different cruise lines. In the process, I have cruised around Europe, Northern Europe, Australia and North America, which includes Alaska as well as Hawaii. I can work with you to determine the itinerary and experience best suited to your tastes and budget. Allow me to give you more time to dream about your next vacation by letting me handle all the details.

Alaska, U.S. River Cruises and more, Oh My!

Alaska is the 49th state of the Union, but should be first on your bucket list. Majestic Denali is not to be missed. After experiencing Alaska up close, from the mountains to the fjords, I’ve “been there, done that”. Let me help plan your trip to “The Last Frontier”.

Cruising the Rhine River with Viking River Cruises

How do you describe the indescribable?

There are no words to give you the fullness of the experience we had during our trip in April but let me say that Viking River Cruises did not miss one detail. From the moment of embarkation, they made us feel like family coming home again. On Easter...Read more.

Customer Testimonials

Bellisimo Italy!

Fawn, I want to thank you for everything you did to help us plan and execute our trip to Italy. It was PERFECT! All the arrangements were stress free and everyone showed up when and where they were supposed to, despite there being a taxi strike. The private tours were all phenomenal! All of our guides were wonderful and seem to get better with every new excursion. Our last guide Alberio Astarita who was in Sorrento became part of our family. My sister was a bit compromised and needed a cane to get around. He was patient and we all were able to see everything without a glitch. He guided us in all 3 of our tours near Sorrento; 1)the second day Walking tour, 2) the tour to Capris and 3) Positano, Amalfi and Ravello Tour from Sorrento. He helped us get reservations at some of the restaurants we wanted to try and of course took us to some of the shopping areas we wanted to see. It was all perfect and I cant wait for our next adventure!

Thank you Fawn. We enjoyed our Alaska trip very much! The scenery was breathtaking of course. Princess Cruise service was top-notch throughout. The food on the ship was excellent. We enjoyed the McKinley Lodge much more than the Denali Lodge. The Music of Denali at the Denali Lodge area was great, as well as the Sled Dog Excursion in Skagway, and the Mendenhall Glacier excursion in Juneau. No other trips planned right now, but we'll see you again in the future. Thanks for your help in booking this trip for us.

Hawaii Cruise

Hi Fawn, back from our trip. We had a wonderful time.!! Princess fast tracked us to elite status to thanks us for our past business. Between our suite's perks and the elite upgrade we were treated like royalty! The overall service, club class dining, comfortable accommodations, and exceptional crew was all anyone could ask for. We were impressed with Princess cruise lines in every way.It's hard getting back to life as usual. We greatly look forward to our September Alaskan cruise with Princess. Once again, thank you for your assistance. Everything went smoothly from start to finish thanks to you!

Thank you!

As a company our corporate travel has been booked through Fawn at Travel Leaders for a total of 8 years. The IndyCar Trackside Support Team which consists of 14 plus employees all travel together so booking flights, cars and hotels can become cumbersome and time consuming. Fawn relieves Ilmor of this burden and frustration making travel less of a concern. Due to the nature of our business plans change regularly and sometimes last minute, Travel Leaders always reacts and modifies our travel requirements as needed in a timely manner. We highly recommend the professional staff at Travel Leaders to take care of all of your business and personal travel arrangements.

Hi Fawn: Mary ann and I would like to thank you and Travel Leaders for your thoughtful onboard gifts. We both enjoyed the dinning package as well as the beverage card. They only added to the enjoyment of the cruise as well as creating memories. I would also like to let you know of our positive experience with D & D Transportation. There drivers were very prompt, polite and helpful. Their cars were nice and clean. Exceptional service on both transfers! Thank you for steering us in their direction. Again thank you and looking forward to scheduling another trip soon.

Thanks Fawn!

I have known Fawn for about 20 years. We worked together while I was a travel professional, then I retired. Luckily Fawn didn’t. I wouldn’t go to any other person for my travel. Fawn knows her stuff!!! When I got married, my husband liked to play around planning trips for us. After he finished with the first one, I said “Let me check with my buddy to see how well you did”. Well, needless to say, Fawn did much better than he did. That was enough to convince him to let her do our travel from then on. Fawn has planned many trips for me. She has the tools to do the complete job; air, land, cruise, on-board amenities, insurance, cars. You want it, she will get it for you. Now, the next generation of my family, my son, is calling Fawn. If you are looking for the complete travel professional, Fawn is your go-to person. Her extensive travel experiences have given her the knowledge to help everyone whether first-time or many-time traveler.

Un Cruise experience

Fawn, I can honestly say that our family absolutely loved our UnCruise vacation. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a close encounter with Alaska. The crew was friendly, efficient and informative; we could be as active or relaxed as we wanted to be; the food was very good. But, the best part, for me, was getting up close and personal with the wild life. If we spotted whales, our captain would very slowly creep towards them and eventually stop so we could watch them and take pictures/video. Doesn't get much better than that. Something I hadn't considered was how close we would get to the other passengers. Our girls made so many friends on the boat. It was the same for Gary and me. I actually cried Friday night while we all watched the slideshow of pictures from our week! It was hard to say goodbye to our new friends. Thank you for recommending the company. Unfortunately, our kids are ruined now. They already told us they will never go on a big ship vacation.
Gary, B, Plymouth Mi
