My Background

For more than a decade, Lesley Cohen has channeled her love of a perfectly-planned event into thriving careers in the travel and wedding industries. As luxury travel advisor, Lesley helps clients turn their wanderlust into extraordinary vacations. Prior to working in the travel space, she headed up wedding and event management company Lelyco Events, a Washington, D.C.-based venture, chosen in 2012 as one of Washingtonian Magazine’s best wedding planners. As her firm expanded into destination weddings, the far-flung locales she was working in gave Lesley an itch to work in the travel realm, where she’s been ever since. In her current role, Lesley works with a wide range of discerning clientele, who love to explore the world and who value the experience of expertly planned travel. From members of the professional sports industry, Fortune 500 execs and corporate clients planning incentive travel, to families and honeymooners looking to make meaningful memories, all come to Lesley for a seamless travel experience.

Lesley holds a Master’s Degree in Tourism Administration from George Washington University’s School of Business, and received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Central Florida. She lives in Tampa, Florida with her wonderful husband, daughters and pooch, and has her passport ready and waiting for her next travel adventure.

Great . She was able to cover every step of our trip from beginning to the end. She kept us informed of any changes and was able to communicate our needs to the staff of the ship.

She is quick to respond, updates her clients and provides extremely thorough explanations of all possible rates. Lesley has creative ideas and is completely approachable no matter what the budget.

Lesley is great to work with. On this specific trip she got us into the hotel we wanted (when other's couldn't!) More importantly Lesley has helped us with our long range panning as far as trips that are 2 and 3 years out (and longer.) In developing that travel strategy we really needed a knowledgeable partner who is also a good listener. We look forward to working with Lesley for many years.

Always Happy to Help

A week in the keys

Lesley is great to work with. She communicates well, listens well and does what she says she is going to do. When we make a blanket request (whenever we travel we want X) Lesley is very good at delivering what we ask for. I strongly feel that I can take her advice without thinking twice about it. We are planning out tripe over the next few years - Lesley has given us some great input for those plans.

Another Trip of a Lifetime

For the 3rd year in a row, Lesley has helped me plan the trip of a lifetime. This time, my husband surprised us at Christmas with this trip. I didn’t really start engaging in planning until March or April. With little advance notice, Lesley helped me plan a seamless trip and connected us with the best tour guides we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Lesley and her team were great to work with - both in long-range planning and dealing with last second issues (like a broken foot!) I look forward to planning vacations with them for for all future travel. I find it best to approach them with an idea or thought - our plans always improve greatly with their input.

This was our second time having Lesley book our travel and I couldn’t be happier! She was always quick to respond and very helpful with deciding what destination and property to choose. We had to change our dates last minute and Lesley handled the situation promptly! loved the virtuoso amenities and we will definitely use Lesley again.
