Customized Vacations

Curating travel experiences to fit each traveler's vision of the perfect holiday may require more then finding that exact match in a brochure. This is where Leatta excels in what she does.  Knowing over 50 travel providers and having special relationships through Signature Travel allows her to draw from several companies and create that trip of a lifetime.  Whether you are looking for experiential journeys with a maximum of 24 or are looking to travel luxury, in an intimate group of two she ensures your next adventure of a lifetime awaits you.

Culinary Travel Specialist

Enjoy leisure dining, sampling wine from family-owned vineyards, and savoring artisan cheeses? Leatta asks about your favorite restaurants, what time you get up in the morning, and whether you enjoy the nightlife so that she can handcraft an itinerary that crosses key encounters off your bucket list.  Are you food obsessed?  She can arrange cooking classes, behind the scenes bakery tours, and private wine tastings along with lessons in the basics of ordering food.

River Cruise Specialist

As the river cruise market becomes increasingly complex, there is a need for river cruise specialists who can help clients sift through all the options including what river, what company fits each person's personality and style, family river cruises, active river cruises, why go in winter why go in the summer and so forth.  Leatta will also be hosting a special Wine River Cruise November 9 - 20, 2017.
