Dear travelers, My dad inspired my passion for traveling by taking me to the airport numerous time as a child while enjoying our time together watching the planes take off. Traveling became my passion and that is what lights up my eyes! For the past 36 years I have been traveling around the world, not to escape life but for life not to escape me. Travel helps us find our purpose and puts focus into our lives. The more we get lost in our travels, the richer our lives become. Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps.

Customer Testimonials

Best cruise ever

Tina: We had a wonderful cruise. First class we thought, The room was comfortable and the deck was well used by us. All the meals were delicious and lobster offerings were frequent enough, Charlie had two lobsters one night. Pleasant evening entertainment. Wine and beer offered every lunch and dinner. Open bar each afternoon and evening. The crew was great. For our anniversary we were sent a tray with chocolate covered strawberries and a note with a bottle of champagne. Thank you. We even had a lobster fest with mussels, corn on cob and potatoes under a huge lighted tent. It was a happy ship. Thank you so much.

Rocky Mountaineer

We LOVED it as well. The Rocky Mountaineer was simply amazing. The food was fabulous but most importantly the people who worked on the train were wonderful. Their service and knowledge were outstanding. The trip from Vancouver to Kamloops was not very scenic but the staff was so interesting and informative about the area we were in we hardly noticed. The next day however from Kamloops to Jasper was breathtaking. Jasper was a great town and a perfect setting to take day trips from. The Maligne lake boat ride was well worth it. I don’t think I need to tell you how amazing Lake Louise and the Fairmont was. Banff was great town and not nearly as crowded. The thing that surprised me the most was the Icefield Parkway. It is well known for its scenic drive but it was incredible. Thank you for all you did to make it happen. The trip was absolutely wonderful.
Mary Shaughnessy


Rocky mountaineer was fantastic. They wined and dine us and the food and drinks were great. Breakfast and lunch on the trains and drinks basically all day. Our hotels were fantastic. Not great scenery the first day but the second day was fantastic. The Rocky Mountaineer people definitely have it down in terms of guest experience. The accommodations were fantastic. I think we told we didn’t want 5 star hotels but the Fairmont Chateau at lake Louise was a must. We sat out on our patio every night at dinner and looked at the lake. Mike took 1800 photos and be glad to share with you if you would like to see them. Thanks again.
Barb Smith

I would definitely go back

hi Tina The resort was beautiful. Weather was perfect. We opted to upgrade to the adults pool and beach area. I think it was over 100.00 per person. Our rooms were great and yes we all got upgraded rooms thanks to you with pool view rooms. I would go back in a heartbeat ?? The hibachi restaurant was really good and so was the seafood restaurant. You always navigate us to the perfect spot! Thank you so much ??
Jean Komor

Wonderful trip

Hi Tina Everything was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful, the resort was beautiful, clean, great entertainment and good food. Thanks for booking us another amazing trip!
Kristen Williams

Loved the itinerary

Hi Tina We loved the itinerary You were right about the crowds. We took your advice and packed our patience. Florence was crowded but we eventually got to see the highlights. We loved Venice! This is the one place in Italy we might consider going back to and interested in the Amalfi coast and Sicily. Switzerland was spectacular! Loved the Mount Pilatus excursion! We also enjoyed the folklore show. We also enjoyed Paris. We did go to the Moulin Rouge and it was wonderful. London was awesome and the location of the hotel was perfect. The hotels in London and Switzerland were very nice. Included meals were good and we loved our travel group. Our tour guide was Liz and I can’t say enough nice things about her! Our driver was Ferdinand’s and he provided exceptional service . We did enjoy traveling by Eurostar! We saw so many incredible things and made lifetime memories! Thanks for all your help!
Beth And Darrell Pulley

Fantastic Trip to Italy and Sicily

Indeed it was a trip of a lifetime-fantastic. Rome was a highlight. Weather was unseasonably cold and some rain. We had the best tour guide and bus driver ever. I can’t say enough good things about Mario and Dario. We visited on the last day in Palermo a mansion and in their basement they had a workshop making their own jewelry. We had. A buffet luncheon upstairs out on their lanai. Very best part of the trip was when we spent time in Angelina hometown. I’m sure she told you all about it. The joy on her face and in her heart made the entire trip worthwhile. Thank you for all your help and for planning a wonderful vacation for us
Linda Jones

Trip to Italy

Loved my trip to Italy. So happy I went. Was very exhausting to keep up the pace for me. Our tour guide Lino was so kind, considerate and so knowledgeable. Best tour guide ever. Really enjoyed Florence, Andrea. Her voice was so calming and again so knowledgeable. The views from our hotel in Sorrento was beautiful. Pompeii I found to be most interesting excursion. Best bus driver, smooth never felt in danger with Paulo. Very nice man. Thanks so much for your service, the call you made to me going over everything helped put me at ease.
Brenda Palmer


Hi Tina We had a great time in Mexico, Unico was incredible and in many ways exceeded our expectations. We were upgraded the next level suite when we arrived thanks to you and it perfect. The food was top tier and probably one of the best parts of our stay. We didn’t book any excursions but we did a couples massage at the spa that was great all around. The only downside was the beach covered in seaweed but heard that was an issue all over Riviera Maya and the Gulf of Mexico right now. Thanks for everything.
Cameron S.

Jamaica trip

Hi Tina We had a great time. We were so impressed with the cleanliness, food, drinks, service, etc. The weather and beach were amazing with the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. We would definitely go back. Thank you again for the recommendation and booking our trip for us. You were so easy to work with. I will likely be contacting you in the near future for trip recommendations. Thank you for checking in.
C. Walker

Great Holiday Vacation

Hi Tina Our trip was great. The weather was perfect. The flight was good especially considering the recent craziness with Southwest Airlines. None of the rest of the gang went on any excursion but we did and it was great. A bit of an adventure. The rest of the time we stayed at the resort and it was perfect. Nice clean great food and drinks and Beautiful beach. The newly built water park was only a short walk from the hotel and the kids had a lot of fun there too. Thanks again for everything and looking forward to our summer trip to Iceland.
Vicki L.

Wonderful time

Hi Tina We had an amazing trip. Thanks so much for getting all our plans in place, We are hoping to get back to Europe in a couple of years, We are planning to go to Hawaii in 2023, Do you offer any planning/bookings there? Thanks

Wonderful time in Italy

Hi We had an absolutely wonderful time! Our favorite cities were Venice; Tuscany (San Gimignano) and Sorrento, When we were in Florence we did an extra day with our driver and he took us to a private wine tasting at a small winery in San Gimignano which was our favorite day out of all, the weather was the hottest in Rome and Florence reaching temps high 90s and the most crowded but we still enjoyed it, all in all the tours were great. Thanks for all you help!
Andrew Milano

Wonderful time

Hi Tina. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. Our trip was everything we had hoped for. It was wonderful. Viking does an excellent job! We were very pleased. Everything was top notch. I am so glad we upgraded our hotel in Prague as we were so close to the city center compared to the other hotel. We were delayed in getting out of Chicago and we missed the original connection in London to Budapest. But American Airlines was awesome and re book us before we even landed on another flight that day which was great but our luggage got delayed but only for a day. Other than that everything went well. We had a wonderful time and met many people on the trip. We have highly recommended Viking as a great choice for travel. The guides were great too. I can understand why you go on so many river cruises. Thanks again.
Glenna Interwicz


Hi Tina; We had a great time with perfect weather. All of our excursions tour guides were awesome, especially the Prague guides. No complaints. The Viking staff were always courteous and very helpful. Our favorite cities were Prague; Regensburg; Salzburg and Budapest. The afternoon going through Wachau Valley was beautiful and very relaxing. Thanks for all you did to help us take this wonderful vacation.
Marty Van Buskirk


We enjoyed ourselves. The weather was great; the resort was beautiful and wonderful service. We went snorkeling at pelican rock, zip lining at wild canyon and a sunset sailboat ride. We really enjoyed all of the excursions. The staff was very helpful. Thank you
Teena Sanders


Hi Tina Our trip was fantastic. We had a blast. Everything was perfect. We did not take any excursions as we wanted to enjoy the resort. We are planning on doing that next time. Weather was perfect. Really a great week. My wife said she was so glad we used you. Me too. Thanks again for all your help along the way. It was truly a amazing place. I would send all of your clients there.

Loved it all

Hi Tina Just wanted to touch base with you and tell you we had a wonderful trip! Loved it all. No Problems with travel for us. Everything went as planned and smoothly. Thank you
Carol Cleary

Great family trip

Hi Tina; The trip was great It was fun to be with my family. The Iberostar Cancun was very nice but not quite up to the level of our recent trip to Secrets Maroma which you know we enjoyed the trip you booked for us. Secrets Maroma is a pretty resort. We liked the Maroma beach; personnel; activities: food; and room better but all in all Iberostar is still very good,
John Gleason

Great time

HiTina We are having a great time! Place is beautiful and the food is spectacular! The beach is public because it’s located on Cancun main hotel strip which was crowded at times, But still enjoyed our time!!
Kim K.

Perfect anniversary

This is my second booking with Tina Kennedy at Travel Leaders and I cannot recommend her enough! She contributed experience based knowledge to help us pick the perfect anniversary destination! We spent seven days in paradise and from our initial communication to our flight home,,,Tina was available every step of the way to make sure we knew all the best restaurants, activities and entertainment worth seeing and then some, she was patient in talking through all the covid guidelines, precautions and worst scenarios with me, She gave me the reassurance and advice we needed to make it to and from our destination safely. If there’s an upgrade to be had or a perk to be found, she will work her hardest to secure these for you where possible. If there’s a hiccup or a flight change, she will have your back! Thank you Tina for making this so easy for us Gorgeous resort, Incredible food and friendly staff,
Abigail Rosenkoetter

Retirement holiday

Hello Tina. We thoroughly enjoyed Secrets Maroma. We had one day of rain but on all the other days the weather was ideal. We stayed at the Maroma site and felt no need for excursions. The experience was great. Thanks for rescheduling flights and accommodations after the original flight cancellation. Gracias
J. gleason

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh Tina it was amazing!, the service was impeccable and it was so beautiful relaxing and fun. It was very laid back and they had the perfect number of activities if you wanted to do something at night or during the day. They had kayak racing and volleyball. I cannot say enough good things about this place. I would go back in a heartbeat. The hardest part was setting up the babysitter and all the paperwork but well worth the amazing memories we made there. Thank the for taking such great care of us and getting everything set up! I hope you have a Merry Christmas as well
Denise Schick

Amazing trip

Hi Tina It was an amazing trip, Thank you so much for helping us get there successfully. The weather was absolutely perfect couldn’t have asked for anything better. We did an excursion through Happy Fish and rented a private catamaran. They were wonderful and loved the whole thing. Beyond that we stayed at the resort because it was so perfect. Loved the rooms and swim out Geury was great Thanks again for everything. Someone from our group will be reaching out to you at some point to chat about Mexico and our next trip !
Sara H.


Hi Tina, We had a great time. The weather was perfect everyday. No rain except for one early morning shower before anyone was up. The resort was very nice. Well maintained and very clean. No real waits for dinner to speak of. The food was very good and the drinks were excellent. Yes we walked over to the Dreams property a couple of times and had dinner at Portifinos our last night. I went off the resort on Friday scuba diving near Captiva island and the water on that side was much cleaner. Sherry visited the spa while I was diving and said they did a very nice job. Our room was on the top floor with a partial ocean view overlooking the quiet pool. Thank you again for your assistance. It was a fun trip.
Neal K.


Hi Tina, The trip was fantastic. Loved the hotels and tours. Gondola rides are probably over rated in general but we just had to do it and glad we did. Food, wine, and shopping were great. Thank you for all of your help.
Erin Wideman

Family Vacation in Mexico

Hi Tina, We had a great time. It was very active and Kim & I did some things that we probably weren’t planning on doing (zip line & jump off cliffs into cenotes, Sea Treks with Dolphins and Sea Rays, and a stroll through a cave with complete sensory deprivation in the pitch dark!). Xcaret was truly excellent. Absolutely gorgeous location, food was fantastic and service was outstanding. Grounds, beaches and pools were beautiful. We would highly recommend the resort to anyone. Our rooms was excellent also. It had a steam shower, indoor and outdoor jacuzzi and even the bed was great. Our room had 2 personal butlers. One named Stephanie was fantastic..Your part was flawless as usual. You had us completely prepared in advance with the required documents. We had a wonderful time and were so glad to be able to spend a week with the boys and our soon to be daughter-in-law. I know they had fun also. Now looking forward to Josh’s wedding then Europe.Thank you for everything talk soon
Brett Wolff


Hi Tina, The El Dorado Maroma was amazing! We enjoyed it so much and can't wait for our next vacation. The weather was great too! We booked a snorkeling excursion and went parasailing after it rained while we were snorkeling, but we were already wet so it wasn't a big deal. We truly had a great time!!
Ty Fischer


Tina, We had an absolutely amazing time! Sandals Mo Bay was gorgeous and had everything we needed. The workers were so friendly and treated us like family. We met some other honeymooners and travelers that we believe will be life long friends! We did check out Sandals Royal Caribbean and their private island which was a great little getaway! We went there with 2 other couples and had a relaxing time! We also went to Dunn's River Falls and Mystic Mountain one day which was a blast! I only felt the need to do an excursion one day because the resort itself is just so beautiful! Thanks again for everything and sticking with us through all of the craziness due to the covid crisis. Hopefully we will travel again soon!! Thank you :)
Alison Salivar


Hi Tina! We had a great time in Punta Cana! Now it's just hard getting back to reality :( The weather was good for the most part, had a shower here and there but overall we had plenty of sun and beach/pool time. The one day it rained, we went on a dune buggy excursion, so we were fine getting wet and dirty that day :). This was our first all-inclusive so we really enjoyed the Hideaway Royalton. It was a little different not having the entire resort as adults only, just the Hideaway section of the resort, but it wasn't a problem for us. The food and drinks were excellent throughout the resort. One dinner was better than the next! Kevin and I said we'd gladly go back to Punta Cana someday. It's a beautiful, relaxing place to get away for sure! Thanks for all of your help getting us there! Have a great day!
Lisa Bazzell


Hi TIna, We had a great time! The adult section of the Now Onyx was fabulous. Our room was very nice and comfortable. The weather was nice and hot, but very windy. The beach was closed due to the strong winds, so we were at the pool every day. Not really a problem for us. The sun was out and the wind finally would die down. The service was outstanding. Anything we needed all we had to do was ask. Jean had a massage and really enjoyed that. I would recommend the trip for anyone. Thanks for finding us this trip. We loved it!
Susie Komor


Hi Tina, Loved everything about it and the weather was perfect for Fall. No favorite port of call but we really loved the day we stayed on the top deck and viewed the scenic middle Rhine. The service was excellent and I couldn't believe a Viking rep was at the airport to help us get our boarding passes! That being said, I will never plan another trip that takes us through the Amsterdam airport - one hour and 40 minutes from checking to gate, but that's not Vikings fault. I hope to do another one someday. Thanks for all your help with this trip!
Susan Cassimatis


Tina our trip was fantastic! Our tour guide was very nice and very friendly. I've been thinking about Sicily ever since we arrived home. This trip was a great way to spend our 50th anniversary! Thank you for all of your help!
Jim Frese


Tina, our trip was AMAZING! I gave your email to several people we actually met in Italy (and to another in St. Louis-couple from Sunset Country Club. WE LOVED the cooking classes - both of them! We loved Roberto - our tour guide to the Vatican and the Colosseum. The hotels got better throughout the trip. Probably the least attention to personal service was in Siena (the 5 star one - go figure). But they were all great. We were not able to get tickets in Florence because of our trip to Cinque Terre - but I wouldn't trade that day for any naked statue - LOL! The winery tours and tasting were also wonderful. The two were different from one another -one big and in the family since 1700s and one small one person organic so it was neat to see them both. Every single meal we had was phenomenal and of course the wine - WOW! Thank you! Now I want to take all 4 kids to Sicily to meet Vince's family. They would just love it! Best regards!
Michelle Murray


Hi Tina, The trip was amazing! Dominican is a beautiful country. The resort grounds were breathtaking. The staff at Secrets are committed to their customers. We had a butler named Jose who was very nice and always available if we needed something. The extra honeymoon perks were one of a kind! Sheryl was especially surprised with the champagne that was in our room when we arrived as well as the honeymoon ban was laced around our door. Towards the end of the trip, they surprised us again with champagne, chocolate strawberries and I Love U written on our bed made out of rose petals. Scape park was very cool. The nice thing was the fact there were many activities to do. Food was amazing but I definitely ate and drank too much. I gained 10 lbs when I was there! But, hey its a vacation, right! It was very nice working with you. We look forward to contacting you in the future when we are ready for our next trip!
Danny Looby


Hi Tina, We really loved this resort! I keep telling everyone it was like a tropical oasis. Cap Cana was amazing! The resort was beautiful, service was fantastic, everyone was so friendly and helpful, food was good. Thank you for the recommendations, we loved everything about the trip! We are already starting to think about a trip for next year, any places you would recommend? Let us know what you would recommend!
Ashley Roesslein


Hello TIna, Our trip was an absolute blast from the moment we landed in Punta Cana til the flight home! What an amazing resort and a well comforting staff. We did receive your gift and loved it! Everything couldn't have gone more perfect. Brittany and I are already hoping to plan another trip there again. We did do the Scape Park excursion, which is a lot of fun, swimming in the Cenote "Blue Hole" was my highlight. We also did the marinarium excursion which we got to swim with the sharks. We met the other couple you booked there at the same time we were there, Cheryl and Danny from St. Louis and instantly became good friends. Overall it couldn't have gone any better! And I would highly recommend this resort a 5 stars no doubt! Thanks again for all of your help!!
Kyle Zumsteg


Good afternoon Tina, Our trip was truly fantastic! That week at Hotel Xcaret was one of the best of my life! In fact, Desiree has already vowed that we "need" to go back with her family and mine next year and that it would even be a wonderful wedding location for us the following year. I am thrilled that her first trip outside of the United States, first long distance trip with just me and her first trip to Mexico were all such positive experiences for her. After scheduling our included excursions we went to the main Market restaurant which really is amazing! We also got to try out the Casa Fuego restaurant . We also went to enjoy the rooftop pool/bar and had it all to ourselves. It is calm and peaceful away from any kids and my parents would have loved it here. The last restaurant was called Las Cuevas, the caves. We got a table right looking out over the water of the river with romantic lit caves stretching out to the other side. Amazing! Thank you for your recommendation
Joshua Wolff


Hi Tina, Unico was great! The food was fantastic, the service superb and the grounds were beautiful! The worst part? Leaving!! I did the whale shark excursion. What an awesome experience! Although many even after taking dramamine got sick, I fortunately did not. Brett and Gabe were not so lucky. The pools were wonderful and the food and beverage service perfect. I would definitely recommend Unico for those looking to relax, unwind, and enjoy great food and service! Oh yeah, the weather was mostly sunning and warm with a nice ocean breeze. The evenings cooled down but generally hovered around 80 degrees! Thanks!
Greg Butler


YES! We had a great time! The resort was beautiful and modern and the service was absolutely incredible. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We were assigned our own personal staff member that sent us snacks and champagne to our room several times, unprompted. We went swimming in the pool around 1a.m. no one else was out at all and a staff member came by and asked if there was just the two of use and he came back with warm beach towels and two bottle waters for us! I would absolutely recommend Secrets Cap Cana for an adult getaway and I would love to take my mom there too. Thank you!
Katie Tulk


Tina, We had a fabulous time! Thank you! We were pleased with our accommodations. You placed us in some nice hotels! We loved sightseeing in Rome, tasting the gelato, seeing Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, Colosseum and Forum were amazing! The Holy steps were a powerful experience and of course the piazzas crazy traffic, quaint allies, pizzas, wine, etc. each part of the trip was exciting. I thought of you so much in Venice. It really is a unique city and yes, romantic. We enjoyed the gondola-a must do Venice experience. We even saw a funeral with a casket being transported in a boat. Don't see that in St. Louis! Our Backroads trip was fabulous! They too provided a top notch experience with excellent guides. The accommodations were wonderful and every meal was an event, in an awesome setting, rather it be a restaurant, winery or a picnic in the hills of Tuscany. The hikes also varied a lot which was fun. Thank you!
Chris Slattery


Hi TIna, Yes it was such a great time. It is hard not to write a book about our experiences. We went to several of the castles along the way and we also went to the Black Forest. We wound up buying a cuckoo clock from there. The night watchmen tour in Rothenburg was awesome! The tour guide/owner was very unique and funny. We ventured around each stop as much as possible. It was exhausting, but so much fun. W really loved Fussen and being able to see the Alps from our hotel. The architecture in Germany is so amazing! On Friday we met our friend Peter and stayed with his family in Lichtenau. It was so beautiful up there. We also walked around Buren and Paderborn on Saturday and had a blast. A very memorable vacation. Thank you so much.
Melissa Soriano


Hi Tina, Jamaica was beautiful and our resort bad to the bone! Service was great, food was great, spa was great and room just as pretty as the pictures in a brochure! I'd go back every week if I had the money to! I really liked how quiet our resort was compared to neighboring properties; it made for a more enjoyable honeymoon. Thanks again!
Paul Bickford


Hi Tina, We got in late Saturday night and were happy to be home, but we had the time of our lives on the river cruise. AMAWaterways was so good to us and the whole experience was everything we hoped for and more. We had the time of our lives and it far exceeded our expectations! Thank you!
Kim & Brett Wolff


Tina, We had a great time! The trip was wonderful and the weather could not have been better! Rome was beautiful and the hotel was so easy to get to the Vatican. We ended up taking the tour Monday morning with Royal to the Sistine chapel and loved it!! The Jewel of the Seas was excellent! Service and staff excellent! Thank you for everything!!
Anne Ferretti


Bon Journo Tina, What a wonderful trip!! So many beautiful cities and wonderful things to see. We definitely have called it a trip of a lifetime! Thank you for everything you did to make it such a wonderful experience. As for details of what we liked, I would say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. As we went to each city, it was "this is the best" only to go the next city and say "no" this is the best". What a problem to have! We had an amazing trip and you did a fantastic job for us. We couldn't be happier and are telling all of our friends what a great job you and Journey did for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you as they say in Italy Ciao!
Chuck Emmenegger


Hi Tina, The trip was unbelievable and all the planning was first class. We rated your agency after the first few days and we all agreed A+. The trip ended up with a strong A so well done and thanks for helping our trip be so memorable! Thanks again!!
Michael Rallo


Hello Tina, Italy was absolutely beautiful!! All the cities were absolutely beautiful in their own way! I think we agree that Venice was our most favorite city because of the beautiful San Marco square, Murano Island, and the uniqueness of having only boats as a means of transportation. All the excursions were great...we honestly can't pick one to say it was our favorite because all of them were perfect! We loved the Vatican tour seeing the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter's Basilica brought tears to our eyes...the Amalfi Coast seeing the beautiful view from Positano was amazing! And to end the trip with a lovely gondola ride with everyone recording and taking pictures was priceless! Thank you again Tina for making this dream come true! Tina, you personally have made sure this trip was the best honeymoon we could ever asked for!! Best regards,
Joshua Korba


Hi Tina, Cabo was AMAZING!! We actually just stuck around the resort and we didn't go downtown at all but it was perfect! It poured the first day but nice the rest of it, the pools were great, service was great, and food was great. The only unfortunate thing was that the Hibachi place only had 3 tables so it was extremely difficult to get a reservation. We wee able to sit on the regular seated side and loved the food, but we were said it wasn't possible to experience the hibachi. Other than that, it was wonderful and couldn't have asked for a better time! Thank you so much for setting it all up and can't wait to go back! :)
Sara Hill


Hey Tina, It was a great trip!!! Very busy and have lots and lots of pics. Scenery was great and so was the Avalon cruise! I would definitely recommend this cruise. Thanks,
Scott Vedder

Wonderful family vacation

Hi Tina, Our trip was fantastic! Had a great time! Breathless was very beautiful. The beach was very nice, got to enjoy it for a few days til the hurricane came, category 2 so they roped off the beach but nonetheless we enjoyed the pools, both the quiet and the loud. Met so many wonderful people. Went on a boat ride to the arch, did the pub crawl. My daughter Serena & Seema had a blast! The food was fantastic at the resort. We loved it that we did not have to reserve, can walk right on in and get waited on. Very friendly staff. We went to Kibbeh twice (the Mediterranean one) west to Spumante and also Fish Nets. All were excellent! We took a cab to a Mexican restaurant called Maria Jimenez. Authentic Mexican food. Also loved the fact that downtown Cabo was only about a 10 minute walk. Overall wonderful trip! Impressed with Breathless! Thanks again for arranging the rooms to be next to each other. That worked out well.
Asma Hodge


Thank you Tina! We had an amazing trip and appreciate all of your help and expertise! It was just fabulous!!
Melanie Bath


Hi Tina! We had a wonderful time! The resort surprised us with champagne one evening and then another night decorated our room and bed with rose petals, candles, filled the jacuzzi tube, it was so nice! Thanks for the extra perks! The room was fantastic! We petted the dolphins and did the sunset cruise, which was terrific. We sent to the spa and did a couples massage and hydrotherapy, then went another day to do it all over again. It was so relaxing. Food was good, Thanks so much for the great care you took of us! I am handing out your business cards to everyone. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thanks so very much
Debby Buffa

Huatulco, Mexico Vacation

Hello! We had a great time. The food was good. The service was great. Once again we got the preferred amenities. Lol! I didn't use the spa. We did the 7 Bay Tour that was nice. I did the turtle release. It was amazing!! I would highly recommend it. I got to see the mamas laying the eggs also. I went into town for shopping and it was very nice. The taxi driver stayed with me and took me to stores that had the things I wanted. He was a sweetie! Only downside was the layout of the resort was weird. You had to take elevators to the beach and for dinner but that is because Secrets is built on the cliff side where we spent hours watching the amazing views from our room. Can't wait for Secrets Cap Cana!!
Teena Sanders


Hi Tina! Our trip was wonderful! The staff was so helpful and attentive. Our views from the rooms were amazing and our rooms were just a few rooms apart from each other thanks to you! The hotel rooms were super nice! They now have a pizza oven by the pools which I think might have been the extra restaurant they recently added to the resort. Thank you so much for making sure we were taken care of! Our mom and dad had a fantastic time and couldn't stop raving about it! Thanks again!
Kelly Markovich


Hello TIna! It was absolutely wonderful, the weather was perfect, the service, and the food didn't change at all-still amazing! As soon as they entered our names in to the system they said: You guys are returned clients so we will upgrade you to a better room, and they did thanks to you notifying the resort! They gave us our usual partial ocean view room on the third floor right above the stores. We had a fantastic time. Thank you very much!!!

Hey Tina! We had a fabulous time! The resort was divine and probably the best one I have ever been to. Service, second to none! We met a few other couples and we all plan to go back together in 2018! I will keep you posted! Thank you,
Jennifer Heilwagner


Hi TIna! Everything was great!! We loved the hotel you booked us in and enjoyed all the parks. Especially loved adding the Memory Maker to the package. All went good, although I wish it could have been a little cooler-lol! Thank you!

Hi Tina! The trip was great!! Best moments: Walking in the neighborhoods of Tokyo, exploring the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest and lunch at a cafe near the preserved streets in Kyoto; Enjoyed South Korea with the kids; JeJu Island and Buson - beach and walking along the coast to a Temple. Seoul was fun - great food and after a few days, I mastered the metal chopsticks! You know us, we like the outdoors - forest, beaches, and such so we had a blast!! Thank you again for planning our trip!

Hi Tina! Thank you for checking in with us. We had an amazing time in Europe! I think the few days in Barcelona and the cruise were the perfect way to see the sites over there for the first time. We were very pleased with our accommodations and the ship. We definitely want to go back and see more! Thank you for arranging everything. We will contact you when we are ready for more! Best regards!

Dear Tina, We are back from vacationing in Cabo San Lucas and had an amazing time!! First time in Cabo and won't be the last time. Will have to say the waves did knock us down a few time on the beach but needless to say we did spend more time at the pools on this trip. Did enjoy our boat ride to the arch, few trips to downtown Cabo which was only a 10 minute walk from our resort. All inclusive is the only way to go. Lucked out with the weather too. I really enjoyed our resort. Spacious rooms and also had the many pools to swim in along with amazing views of the ocean and never a complaint about the food... everything was perfect! Thank you again Tina!

Hi Tina, Just wanted to thank you again for our amazing vacation. We had such a great time and made friends with all the staff. We did one excursion where we swam with the dolphins and climbed Dunn's River Falls. Everything went smoothly the whole vacation and it only rained for about an hour one of the days we were there! Thanks for taking care of scheduling everything - you are great at what you do! One question - do you do any continental us travel? We are looking at maybe something for December the week before Christmas to a beach area with two friends. Just curious if you could find any good deals for us! Thanks again, Heather

Hi Tina, We had a great time and loved the resort! I don't know really if we received any perks for being on our honeymoon but we did get champagne when we arrived! We loved everything about the resort! Only thing we might try different next time is a destination where the ocean water is more calm. But other than that it was great!! We are ready to book another trip soon!

Thanks Tina, We had an amazing time! The resort was incredible. The service was fantastic and the food was out of this world. Everything you planned for us went exactly as expected and we enjoyed it all. I'd have to say we both agreed our favorite part was spending time in the town of Lahaina and going to the luau. Such a cool town. The road to Hana was a close second. Thank you again for everything you did for us, we really appreciate it! Thanks again,
Blake & Hayley Birner


Dear Tina, It was amazing! I am so glad we stayed in the Ocean Point. Everyone was wonderful and the customer service was the best I have ever had. The restaurants on the resort had great food, good choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner so there were a ton of options for all meals. We used the 24 hour room service a ton and it was always quick and correct. The two pools for the adults only were beautiful and the resort was so clean and well kept. Even the security hired by the resort were extremely helpful. I would give this resort and St. Maarten a 10 of 10! Thank you for all of your help.

Hi Tina; Everything was so amazing on that ship! The food was amazing and there were so many options to choose from. Nick enjoyed the sushi place and the cafe was nice for lunch. We stayed away from the Windjammer because it was also so crowded. We really enjoyed the nightlife, always something to do. My favorite show was the water show, that was pretty amazing. We enjoyed to hang out at the Irish bar where we found our favorite bartender there and the live band was always good. All the stops we took were amazing, my favorite was our trip to Trunk Bay, that was AMAZING!! Nick's favorite was the Maho beach...surprise haha!! It was an amazing trip and thanks for all of your help again!

Tina- Thank you so much for meeting with me today. You are absolutely a star at your job! Thank you so much for all the details of our up coming stay. Your information was so helpful. It was great getting reacquainted again and we wil be looking forward to working with you in the up coming trips. Take care and I will let you know how the trip goes! We just returned and everything was awesome! My kids loved it! It was a great time for bonding. We did 2 excursions and 2 spa treatments and Tara hit the salon to have her nails done. The food was spectacular the surroundings and upkeep were pristine and the hospitality was above and beyond. Only thing that was missing was a few more days there. Lol! Thanks for all your help.

Tina, We had a wonderful time on the river cruise and we loved seeing all the different sights. Vienna and Budapest were particularly beautiful and interesting but it was also nice just to watch the countryside from our veranda as the ship sailed along. Viking had a nice little celebration for our anniversary which I know you arranged! The wait staff sang a song for us, and the chef made us a delicious mango-flavored cake for dessert. Everything went well, and all of the crew on the ship were very friendly and helpful. Mike and I have been telling our friends what a great vacation we had, and if anyone I know wants more information, I'll send them to you. You not only did an excellent job of making arrangements, but also keeping us informed throughout the whole process. Thanks for all your help setting up our trip. It was great!

Hi Tina! We had an amazing time in Jamaica! The hotel exceeded our expectations, the room was great with an awesome view of the ocean thanks to you! I will miss waking up to that everyday. The staff at the hotel was great, everyone was so nice and helpful. We did not end up doing any excursions and just enjoyed our time at the resort. We did book a couples massage which was one of the best we have had and also booked a romantic dinner on the beach which was incredible! Thank you again for all your help in booking our honeymoon!!

Hi Tina! I was planning on emailing you to tell you that we had such a fantastic time! We loved it so much-very very pleased with the Dominican and the resort, the staff and food was wonderful! It was beyond my expectations. Actually I have raved about it so much my husband told me to check on possibly going there for our family vacation we take in June! Thank you so much! Everything went smooth and I cant wait to go back!!

Thanks Tina! We had a fantastic time in Punta Cana! We love the resort you recommended! We were upgraded to the V.I.P. section of the resort which had its own private pool and bar. Thanks for calling the resort for us. Amazing room and place. We enjoyed all the specialty restaurants without having to make dinner reservations plus my husband was able to wear shorts for dinner too! The buffet breakfasts were delicious-fresh mangos every morning and omelettes made the way you want them. All the shows were very good especially Michael Jackson show and the International show. Sunshine everyday except one day. The beach was beautiful with plenty of chairs. Never had to fight for a chair. We had a great time and the landscaping was beautiful and kept clean. Thanks again! My next trip I am interested in is Los Cabos!! Keep me posted!

The trip was great-weather perfect! We went snorkeling, camelback riding and took a paddle board out very briefly. The convenience of that marina right next door was great! The food and service were excellent! Thanks so much again for recommending that place!! They also took a tour of the over the water bungalows-they actually gave me the chills!! I was not used to that much opulence. Our room was just steps from the beach and the pool was awesome. Thanks again TIna! Next year we might try staying in one of those bungalows!! Julie

Hi Tina, We had a wonderful time. Eagle beach is the cleanest beach I've ever been to. No smoking at the resort and on the beach except for the designated areas. The resort was spotlessly clean. The staff was superb, I would highly recommend it. They had a bottle of champagne, 2 flutes for us to keep with the resort name on them and cheese and crackers. The food was good. We also had a fabulous dinner at a restaurant recommended by our concierge that was is comparable to Niche. We would like to go back. The weather was great. Thanks again!

Hi Tina, the trip was wonderful and the wedding was beautiful! The weather was perfect as well. We so much enjoyed the week and for so many reasons. I still need to get copies of the photos from Sophia and will love to share when I do. Thank you for being so efficient and expert to work with—I think destination weddings are the way to go—and will point anyone who's considering one your way! More soon when I can get my hands on the photos!

I am so happy that I got Tina involved with our travel plans. She is a pleasure to work with and knows what she is talking about. My wife and I had not taken a vacation by our self in 30 years so I did not want to make any mistakes, and Tina did a great job so I looked like a hero. If your looking for someone to help you, call or ask for Tina.

My husband and I booked our Honeymoon at Secrets Maroma Beach through Tina Kennedy a few years ago. We try and take a trip every year and keep rebooking through her because she did such a great job! I have also had a friend just finish booking her wedding with her too. She is amazing and makes sure all the details are perfect. We have always been impressed!

My husband and I booked our Honeymoon at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic through our wonderful travel agent Tina Kennedy. She was extremely helpful by providing us with brochures to select the best destination and she set everything up so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. It was so nice and reassuring to know that everything from airfare to transportation to lodging was already taken care of. I would highly recommend Tina Kennedy for all of your traveling needs; she will go above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied. We had such an amazing and unforgettable experience that I will definitely be in touch with her to book any of my future trips!

Always Wonderful with Tina!
I have booked several trips with Tina and the experience is always simple, stress-free and the trip is always wonderful! She is excellent at recommending resorts that fit what I am looking for and always provides a couple options with pros/cons to consider. I have only had an issue one time (not her fault) and she worked very quickly to resolve it. Tina also recommended destinations in Italy when we were planning our honeymoon, so her knowledge of fabulous places goes well beyond the Caribbean. I will keep booking through Tina and would recommend her to anyone!

Tina Kennedy responded:
Thank you Ashley for submitting a review on your recent trip celebrating your mom's birthday! It is always a pleasure booking trips for you! I enjoy recommending new resorts/destinations to clients after I have personally either seen them or experienced these destinations myself. Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller and after traveling extensively for over the past 35 years, do I have the stories to tell :). Thank you again for thinking of me!

Thank you Stephanie for taking the time to write a review and for such kind words, especially for being such a loyal customer. It is always a pleasure planning your groups to Mexico.

Tina picked a winner!
Tina Kennedy helped us plan a February, 2019 trip to Secrets Cap Cana and she sure picked a winner! The weather was perfect and the beach just beautiful. Our room was also just great and the people there are ‘over-the-top’ nice and helpful. Tina does a great job at preparing us for what to expect on our trip through her periodic communications from the time we book until just days before our departure. We appreciate Tina and the great support staff at Travel Leaders.
