Best 30th Anniversary Ever
Danikas professionalism and knowledge of the travel industry made the experience for out 30th wedding anniversary exceed our expectations. We have recommemed Travel Leaders to all that would listen. With it being our first cruise we had no idea of what we were getting in to. From booking our stateroom to printing out our boarding passes and luggage tags she went above and beyond in making sure our adventure was flawless. She even took it upon herself to send us a bottle of wine and a cheese and fruit tray on our anniversary. All of our future travel plans will be going through Danika.

Trip of a Lifetime
I found Danika via random google search. I wanted someone who was accessible to communicate/plan online. From day one, she did not disappoint. This was the first big international trip for my family (husband, 13 yr old, and 10 yr old) and although I researched, I was still uncomfortable planning the 10 day excursion by myself. I gave her a list of things we wanted to do. She also confirmed and added other activities that she thought we would enjoy. Airport transfers, museum tickets, a Mt Fuji hike, and hotels, Danika did it all! I know she worked outside her "normal business hours" because I would send an email at night or on the weekend and she was always quick to respond. I honestly could not have done this without her. She was flexible when I needed things changed and was ALWAYS pleasant. Thank YOU Danika and Travel Leaders for an amazing vacation.

Wonderful anniversary trip
Danika was an amazing resource for helping us get our 5 year anniversary trip to Japan planned and booked. Traveling internationally can be intimidating, so it was wonderful to have an experienced travel agent helping us.
The hotels Danika reserved for us were absolutely perfect for our needs, and we got to have an amazing, immersive experience in both Tokyo & Kyoto. For traveling to/from airports and between cities on shuttles and trains, everything was handled so we didn’t have to worry. She also shared many other recommendations of things to do or ways to make our trip easier, and worked with our hotel concierge on restaurant reservations. It was nice to know that she cared about our trip going well in every aspect.
I'd recommend Danika for travelers going anywhere. I’ve even passed her contact info along to some family members planning a trip in the future, since I can personally vouch for what an excellent job she did planning for my husband and I and how smoothly everything wen

German Adventure!
All I can say is that everything was great and a huge THANK YOU to Danika! She was so patient, I had never planned a vacation to Europe before and she was amazing! She helped me plan a great itinerary and helped me keep it realistic, as in the time we had and all the places we could visit :) We ended up visiting Frankfurt ~ Nuremberg and Stuttgart ~ Germany. Without her this would have been a horrible vacation. With her handling all the details it was an amazing and I cannot wait to work with her again on the next trip!!

Amazing Family Vacation, Perfectly Planned.
Danika helped us plan our trip from the very beginning...we started with only a rough outline of cities and attractions we wanted to see. We were in constant contact until we got the details just right. The trip was amazing mostly because Danika anticipated possible problems and solved them before we even left! She helped us balance travel days with sightseeing days so we felt like we got time to know a city before moving on. We didn't want to drive, and her knowledge of transportation available made that easy and fun for us. Her train schedules were spot on, Hotels were expecting us, the event tickets we held worked perfectly. Everything was so well planned that we could just relax and enjoy it. All her suggestions ( where to stay, when to get a driver due to tight train schedules, events to pre-reserve) turned out to be perfect. It was exactly the trip we wanted and I can't thank her enough for helping us navigate the planning process.
