My Background

I first worked with a travel advisor for my destination wedding and honeymoon because we didn’t know where to start, there was too much information and we didn’t know what advice to trust. So, we hired a travel advisor that understood our needs and could help create an amazing memorable experience. She provided inspiration, value, knowledge, expertise, trusted advice, saved us time, and gave us peace of mind. I loved what our travel advisor did for us. She inspired me to become a travel advisor and help other people have memorable experiences.

I trained with my travel advisor for 2 years to learn the industry and became a Virtuoso Certified Travel Advisor. I created LBL Travel to be your personal concierge throughout your trip, whether you love to relax on the beach, look for the big 5 on safari, cruise around the Mediterranean, or just need a short weekend getaway. Turn your travel dreams into reality with a custom itinerary that reflects your unique interests.

Wonderful Disney Trip

By: BlueSkies

Reviewed on: 30 Mar 2019

Disney trips can feel daunting, especially for first-timers. Laura handled everything with aplomb, down to the finest details, and the whole trip went off wonderfully! I can't thank her enough and am excited to work with her on our next adventure!

Laura planned an amazing 12-day trip through the Caribbean including a 10-day cruise with Silversea. She had great attention to detail and planned private tours which I thoroughly enjoyed. The travel experience was seamless. I benefited from her experience and thoughtful suggestions.

Amazing Family Hawaii Vacation

By: Rob

Reviewed on: 03 Sep 2019

Just came back from a fantastic family vacation in Hawaii, thanks to Laura's hard work and expertise. We came to her with very broad ideas about what we wanted, and after asking specific questions about our preferences she offered clear recommendations about where to go, where to stay, and how to structure the trip. In the past when I've worked with travel agencies the trips have felt "off the shelf," but Laura brought her and her colleagues' expertise to create a tailor-made trip that worked well for our family and was easy for us to organize. Her experience helped us focus on the experiences that matter most -- and that we'll remember for many years to come.

She made it simple. Have many choices. Wasn’t scared to tell us the pros and cons of a location. She was able to get all the information we needed as well. We had a hiccup on the trip and she answered promptly and helped us as well!

Excellent experience. On her advice, I changed my hotel to one that was perfectly located for my business and evening events. Got unexpected amenities and attention at the Corinthia Hotel, which is now my favorite place to stay in London. I could walk to restaurants, theaters and business locations. Prime business location was only one block away! She got us great theater seats!

Laura arranged a luxurious and relaxing stay for us at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts in the Caribbean. The resort is beautiful and the food is excellent. Everywhere on the property features views of Nevis.

Excellence Always!

Laura is an amazing advisor. She caters her services exactly as we need, allowing us to enjoy the best vacations. Excellent lodging recommendations and fantastic perks, great suggestions for things to do and provision of all the contacts and details we need. We've booked several trips with Laura, including large out-of-state multi-family vacation, cruise, and quiet anniversary getaway. She is amazing at listening to what we are looking for, and her own travel experiences give her insight that is so valuable. Can't wait to book our next trip!

Laura worked to understand my requirements and provide a holiday that truly matched expectations. Whilst it didn't remain quite within the budget as anticipated that was perhaps more to do with my wanting to get more for less. Ultimately the holiday matched my expectations on everything except the budget however I was fully aware of that from the get go.

Excellent hotel and dining experience
