My Background

I have been working in the travel industry since I was in college—about the time I first fell in the love with Italy. And while I spent years as a lawyer, I have come back to my passion for traveling and creating wonderful travel experiences for others.

My passion is Italy, but I also specialize in France, Spain, Portugal and South America. I love both Ocean and River Cruising and helping people plan experiences on independent and escorted travel through Europe, the Caribbean and Asia. I believe travel planning is about discovery, and I truly enjoy collaborating with my clients in creating travel adventures designed to make their dreams come true. Travel is more than just checking places off your wish list; it’s about having unique experiences and creating memories. It’s those experiences that I strive to create for my clients every day.

I was very pleased with Leslie Parker's arrangements.(cabin, dining).  Everythingwas worry free.  Service in the dining room was very poor.  Long waits betweencourses.  Entertainment was enjoyable, many activities.

Highly Recommended

Leslie did a great job!!!  We booked a cruise with her.  We had a big group and she handled everything.  We all had cabins next to each other and our dinner tables were together for the seating we preferred.  All we had to do was show up and have a good time.

My trip was wonderful. Leslie's attention to every detail made it a worry free time. The ship was all I expected and more. I would recommend Leslie to anyone planning a vacation. She enjoys what she does and it shows.

Another fantastic trip planned by Leslie Parker! This is the fourth trip she has planned for my husband and me in the past two years. She is knowledgable, accessible and highly professional! Wouldn't use anyone else for our travel needs!

Best Cruise Specialist

Leslie Parker planned and booked our vacation and it went off without a hitch! Although we selected a specific Paul Gauguin cruise, Leslie handled all of our booking. She also attended to every detail that needed attention; issues that I never thought about. Luckily I didn't need to. Leslie took care of everything. Even when I decided to change some of our travel plans, Leslie got right on it! Leslie provided us with valuable insight about our destination. She discussed all of our options for everything that had an option. She was knowledgable and offered plenty of suggestions. Thanks to Leslie, our trip was smooth sailing. Leslie will be planning all of our future trips!

The Best for Italy

By: Vincenzo

She was outstanding to work with. She took into account every thing we said we would like to see and do while in Sicily and the main land of Italy. The guides and drivers were all wonderful. The hotels were the best. Travel arrangements were perfect. Her follow-up was outstanding. She made contact with us several times while on our trip. The group she worked with in Sicily were great to deal with and met us the first day we were there. We would not hesitate to have her help with another trip. She gave us a Five Star trip, which is just what we desired.
