The joy of a vacation can come through some of the big moments experienced, but the satisfaction of a restful trip comes through the smallest details. That's where Leslie Erickson's expertise is priceless! After many years of dreaming about an Italian getaway, our family made a rather spontaneous decision to go this past summer, and while we had fantasized about the places we would go and the sites we would see, we had little idea about how to plan for this trip. Leslie thoughtfully considered our individual likings and clearly understood our family's hopes for this vacation; in addition, she provided us with the benefits of her experience by making suggestions that we could not have known to consider. From the train schedules, to the right place to stay, from the arrangement of tours, to the purchasing of tickets, Leslie gave us the peace of mind to know that everything was taken care of, and she did so while being patient, pleasant, and prompt. We left for our vacation without worry, and we came back with a lifetime of memories and a great deal of gratitude for her help.
I can’t say enough about the service that Leslie provided for us. From the plane reservations to the hotel accommodations. We had a lot of special requests and Leslie was able to manage all of them with a smile in her voice. I really enjoyed having her put together the trip for us as we both have very busy schedules. She was quick to respond to our questions and provided us with great information regarding Italy. We are planning another trip in the Spring and are looking forward to Leslie planning the trip for us.
First let me start out by saying BRAVO Leslie, for a job well done on planning our amazing trip to ITALY! Upon exploring several options for a vacation for my family I came across Leslie’s web site and it was at that moment that I realized I had found the perfect gift for my wife’s birthday, (who was 7 months pregnant at the time of the trip). Leslie let me know through e-mail that she had planned many other trips for families to Europe and that she would customize an itinerary for myself, my pregnant wife and my four year old son. This included restaurants, maps, airlines, dinner times, lunch times, must see sights as well as activities that would cater to my child and us as well. For such a nominal fee you receive “top notch” custom vacation planning. I would highly recommend Leslie Erickson for your next dream vacations experience. FYI, we will be going back this upcoming September and will be utilizing the talents of Leslie Erickson once again this time with our latest addition LORENZO!!
I found Leslie Erickson’s travel services through the Internet. I gave a brief outline of what kind of vacation my husband and I were looking for in a trip to Italy. I have nothing but praises for her services. She customized our vacation to exactly what I had imagined for myself and husband. Leslie recommended great places to stay as well as restaurants and “tips” on things to do. Initially, I was hesitant about renting and driving a car through Tuscany but she encouraged going ahead and driving and I am so glad she did. She made all our hotel and transportation reservations (even looking- up train schedules) and coordinating all our travel plans within Italy. Her quick response to my many questions by email or phone were greatly appreciated. Leslie’s enthusiasm for Italy was contagious and I always trusted her advice. I would not hesitate for a moment using her services again on our next trip to Italy.
