Customized Travel Specialist

Ph. 785.842.4000

Travel is my passion and what I love to do. I create seamless trips for individuals, couples, families and small groups. 

Customized Travel Services: I create day-by-day itineraries customized to your requests with reservations, confirmations and contact numbers at your fingertips; all just to make your travel seamless and trouble-free. A face to face consultation can help me to create a trip specified to your desires.  Do you have a bucket list of destinations but have no idea where to start? I am a logistics expert and know people all over the world. I turn travel bucket lists into completed check-lists. I can line up back to back cruises, combine escorted tours with cruises, and create multi-country itineraries from scratch. The possibilities are endless!

Luxury Travel: Luxury travel could include privately guided tours, river and ocean cruises, business/first class airfare, boutique hotels, luxury villas, over-water bungalows, or private luxury tented safari camps. While traveling with convenience and ease is important, my job is to make sure that your travel is worth the investment. With so many travel options available it is essential to have an expert with the specific knowledge of the services and details.  

Honeymoons: I love booking honeymoons. Your honeymoon may be the most important trip of your lifetime. My goal is to make the "honeymoon of your dreams" a reality. Some couples dream of relaxing on a beach with endless waves of margaritas delivered to their hand. Other couples dream of hiking volcanoes and zip lining through rain forests. Some couples use their honeymoon as a perfect excuse to travel across Europe and see some of the world's most romantic places. I can make any of these a possibility.

Customer Testimonials

Family Vacation

Our experience with Travel Leaders has been excellent. Dave gave us more information and tips on places to stay and things to do then we could have imagined. He was extremely helpful and contacted us via email and phone several times during the process of getting reservations set up. He never hesitated to answer a question or find out the answer to a question if it was one he did not already know. My wife and I would highly recommend him for any travel related plans where some expert advice and assistance is needed.

Oceania Cruises and St. Andrews!

My wife and I recently returned from a two-week journey bookended by stays in Istanbul and Venice, with an Oceania Cruise connecting those two cities by way of the Greek Isles and several Adriatic ports, and Travel Leaders did a five-star job in arranging passage on Oceania, setting up the necessary flights from Dulles International to Istanbul and back, setting up a guide service for us in Istanbul and Ephesus, and overseeing the details for the entire trip. The best recommendation we can give Travel Leaders---and our travel manager there, Dave Bonnel---is this: we have called on Dave and Travel Leaders to arrange our trip next summer (2015) for a tour of Scotland that includes golf at four courses and two days at the Open Championship at St. Andrews.

True Travel Expert!

We've worked with Dave at Travel Leaders twice and had phenomenal experiences both times. He's organized, responsive, efficient and he's a true travel expert. I appreciate that I can give him a general outline of the vacation I'm imagining and he makes thoughtful recommendations that are right on point. Booking travel online is really accessible these days, but also comes with a lot of risks. I will continue to use Travel Leaders because they always find the most competitive pricing and I know they'll be there to address all of my questions & concerns.

Romantic Rhine River Cruise
When you take a large trip, there are so many details involved. Dave was instrumental in making certain our trip went smoothly including airfare, airport transportation, transfers, river cruise, and hotel. We basically had nothing to worry about except showing up. We would certainly recommend Dave for your upcoming trip. He is a delight to work with.

The trip of a lifetime!
Dave was pleasant and accommodating, traveling to Topeka twice to meet with us and handling 8 of us with our questions and concerns throughout the process. I’m sure, at times, he wanted to just “turn us off”, but never let on. I would definitely recommend Dave and would use his services again.

2018 Italy
At the first meeting, he took time to get to know us and listened to our wishes. His knowledge of the areas we wanted to travel was top notch. He responded to our phone calls and emails in a very timely manner. He also gave us his contact information, if we needed to reach him during the trip. The itinerary booklet he prepared for us was exceptional and we referred to it as our "travel Bible" every day. Our accommodations were perfect. I would highly recommend him for anyone planning an adventure. The fee for this service was very reasonable. All his planning and coordinating gave us the opportunity to enjoy each and every day of the trip! I know we will definitely use him again! Keep up the good work, Dave and thank you!

Fun in the Sand, Sun and Blue Ocean
Our vacation really began when we called Dave and let him know what we were planning. We are beach people and he is so knowledgeable of various Resorts in the Caribbean. He's sent several options to choose and our trip was booked! Dave made the reservations at the Resort and flights. It was so easy and less stressful, thanks to Dave! Spent 7 days relaxing and soaking up the sun, and I even swam with the Pigs!
