European Specialist and Cruises Worldwide

I have been a Travel Advisor for over 30 years and have extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations. I know the travel leisure side of travel. As I mentioned living on the Island of Crete Greece for 3 1/2 years by escorting a group to Egypt and ending with a Nile Cruise. Moving over to Zweibrucken, Germany for another 3 years learning to ski the Alps and organizing all ski trips throughout Europe and the US for our American/German ski club. I love working one on one with my clients to get to know their interests so I can help you plan your "trip of a lifetime". Whether it's a weekend getaway to Club Med, in Port St Lucie, Fl., a great family all inclusive resort, the only all inclusive in the US, or a world wind adventure trip to Costa Rica, giving you a personalized experience is a must! I have completed many Resort Specialist training programs and Destination Specialist courses including Sandals Specialist. Having travelled extensively and visited many resorts, I can offer "first hand" experience for prospective clients. Everything looks great online, but actually visiting the properties, dining at the restaurants and getting a feel for the atmosphere of the destination is so important in helping me find the perfect destination for you! Some of the destinations that I have travelled include all of the Mediterranean, all throughout Europe, Mexico, Alaska, Canada-Calgary Lake Louise ,Jasper and Banff while enjoying the experience of the Fairmont hotels , California, New York, Washington DC, New Orleans, Chicago, Vancouver BC Whistler, Korea, Costa Rica, Hawaii and most of the Caribbean, African Safari ending in Mombasa. While living in Phoenix and Tucson Arizona I enjoyed Sedona and the Grand Canyon, Living near Williamsburg, Virginia. I stayed at the Greenbrier and the Homestead Resorts. One of my most resent trips was to San Francisco and the to NAPA Valley for the wine train and hot air ballooning over the vineyards and wine tasting. I have customized in depth independent European itineraries as well as escorted tours and cruises and River Boat cruising and Cuba is HOT for Travel in 2016.  I have recently returned from Cartagena, Columbia. Cruising on my 3rd sailing with Regent Seven Seas in Oct 2019.  I look forward to helping you plan your next memorable experience!

Customer Testimonials

Alaska Cruise and a Trip to Calgary, Lake Louise

Connie, Thank You for helping us plan an amazing trip! We had a terrific time. The Alaska Cruise was quite a treat since it was our first. The entertainment, the excursions, the variety of dining options-all were wonderful. Banff and the surrounding lakes were simply amazing. Vancouver was great fun and friendly people everywhere, beautiful views, and of course the US Women's World Cup ! Once again you were a critical component in planning a trip we will never forget. Many Thanks Tricia

10/10
I cannot imagine planning a honeymoon to Greece without the help of Connie and Travel Leaders. She informed me that she had previously lived in Greece and it was obvious throughout the entire planning process. She gave me great insight into the islands and into the city of Athens. Traveling to and from was seamless with little time wasted in between. We stayed in three different hotels over a period of seven nights and I’m not sure which hotel we liked best! She was prompt with her responses and was able to answer every question I had.

She really took care of my parents!
My parents took a trip to Amsterdam and Belgium and were really nervous about traveling by themselves for the first time. Connie built an amazing itinerary that included every detail from accommodations and personal tours to transit between cities. They had an amazing time, and their (adult) children didn't have to worry :)

Super with our constraints - happy results
Connie worked within our budget and destination goals for a driving vacation in Scotland that had to be wedged in between a family trip to Denmark and a small-ship cruise around Iceland. She quickly followed up on our questions, requests, concerns, and helped us shape a trip that made us very happy. When we thought there was a "hiccup" with the airport transfer in Glasgow, she was available by text/email which was most reassuring. She's a real professional and works to get you the results you request.

Personable, Patient & Professional
Ever have a friend who knows a lot about something, shares that knowledge willingly, and doesn't make you feel somehow inadequate because you don't know the same things? That's Connie Antinopoulos.

She is very knowledgeable about the travel industry; and if there's something she doesn't know, she knows where to find the answer. She's also willing to add to her store of information if you have something to contribute.

Connie has arranged several trips to Europe for us - from transfers, flights and lodging to a river cruise. Walking us through the various scenarios we came up with, she helped us fine-tune until we got the experience we wanted.

Through all the changes, suggestions, and requests we made, she remained cheerful, helpful and accessible, way beyond what might be expected of her. Due to that, our trips have far exceeded our original expectations.

Would we recommend her? Definitely. Will we use her services again? Absolutely!
