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. I provide 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.  I am a logistics expert and know people all over the world. 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.  

Bucketlist Travel: Everyone who travels has list of places that they'd they dream of seeing but they just can't figure out. Whether it's Bora Bora, Egypt, an African Safari, Antarctica, or Nepal; I arrange travel to the ends of the Earth to fulfill your wildest travel dreams. Maybe your dream is an around the world cruise, or a private jet to Paris for you and your family,  I can turn travel bucket lists into completed check-lists.

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.

Close to Perfect Cruise
Dave understood what my husband and I wanted in this trip. He helped us arrange the cruise. We wanted to have better seats on our overnight flight while not paying too much extra. Dave arranged a driver to pick us up at the airport and a great boutique hotel for the night before the cruise began.

Amazing Honeymoon
Dave was easy to work with and had lots of tips about our travel to Greece. We were always in the loop with updates on flights as well as hotel recommendations and activities. We also stayed on budget (which is half the battle when planning a trip). Great communication and will recommend to anyone planning a trip!
