River Cruising

I am a huge fan of river cruising. It's a perfect way to see Europe's finest cities. The river barges actually dock right in the city centers. I loved cruising down the Rhine River through Germany on Viking Cruise Line. The sights were spectacular! Castles, history, pubs, bakeries and so much...

Great Family Vacations

My husband and I travel with our children as often as possible. We love travel! Jan always takes great care of us and finds us travel deals that are affordable for a family of 5. We always travel to all-inclusive resorts and we rely on Jan to make recommendations for us. We've always trusted her and every resort we visited has been perfect for our family.

Travel to Ireland with Jan
After finishing my school year, I jumped into teaching 4 weeks of summer school. Midway through, I decided I needed a vacation. Ireland came to mind as I had wanted to go there since childhood. It was suggested I contact a travel agent who was an "expert" on Ireland.

A web search of "Missouri travel agents specializing in Ireland" turned up a few options with Travel Leaders and after reading the bios of the agents, I decided to call Jan Stanczak. She loves Ireland and had been there numerous times, so that was a great start.

From our first conversation to my departure, it was less than two weeks. Jan is knowledgeable, helpful with suggestions, and booked the perfect trip for my needs. Jan seemed to understand exactly where I was coming from, from the beginning. I will definitely keep Jan's phone number and call her for any future travel adventures and feel confident her professional and pleasant personality would help me make my way on another great adventure.

Very Happy and Satisfied Client
I confess-it had been a long time since I engaged the services of a professional travel agent.

With information so accessible via the internet, it was just as easy to book travel myself. But...when my family and a couple other families decided to take a trip, I reached out to Jan Stanczak. It turned out to be the best travel decision I ever made! From my very first inquiry and throughout the entire process, Jan answered all my questions, offered guidance and was able to secure us upgrades and credits I was unaware were even available. She listened to my concerns and offered insights based on her familiarity with the destination and years in the travel industry. Jan went above and beyond, handling all our reservations, saving us money all while providing incredible vacations.

My family and I truly had a vacation of a lifetime. We have since booked our annual family vacation with Jan. I cannot imagine ever again booking a vacation without the expertise of Jan!

Love our Travel Agent
Jan has been booking my family travel for the last 4 years. I recommend her to all my friends and family. I would never travel without her planning it for us. She knows us and she knows our likes and dislikes. When planning a trip, she's our first call we make!
