Argentina Wingshooting Expert

This is why you come to Argentina – first and foremost – for the dove shooting, not hunting, ‘shooting’. Oh, yes, there are wonderful pigeon hunts, tremendous duck hunts, great perdiz hunting over pointing dogs, and even big game hunting, but the number one reason Americans come to Argentina is the...

Sandals Negril December Getaway

Lori: Regina and I greatly enjoyed the trip you arranged for us to Sandals Negril last week. The resort itself, along with Club Mobay and (of course) Rick, made for an absolutely wonderful vacation. In fact, we’ll see you in January to arrange an identical outing for mid-November or mid-December 2017! Hope you have a great Christmas. Cheers, --Bob and Regina T

Thanksgiving in Venice
Our second full day in Venice, Italy Nov 23, 2017 Thanksgiving in the US. No turkey anywhere in sight! Funny, tho, we didn't even miss it!. Lori Wentworth of Travel Leaders did a suburb job of arranging the things we definitely wanted to do, while leaving us time to just explore and take it all in.

20th Anniversary Celebration!
Lori has been helping us plan wonderful vacations for over 25 years and we couldn't imagine planning a trip without her. Whether a cruise or an all-inclusive resort, her knowledge of the ships and resorts is incredible. Lori's amazing personality, infectious smile and genuine concern for ensuring you have a memorable trip is what keeps us coming back. For our 20th wedding anniversary, she took great care in helping us plan a 12 day Mediterranean cruise that not only included all the destinations (and more) we hoped to explore but she also arranged a renewal of vows ceremony which was performed on the ship by the Captain. It was a trip and anniversary we will never forget!

Absolutely Epic Honeymoon
Working with Lori to plan our honeymoon was great. We gave a bunch of suggestions and told her the places we were interested in. She gave us detailed itineraries that same day. Based on our interests, and her experience, she also suggested Belize, which we never even considered. After seeing what Belize had to offer, we instantly fell in love with it, and it became our top destination. We stayed at multiple resorts, requiring multiple land/water transfers. We were a little nervous when we landed, but Lori had everything squared away. The transfer company found us when we got off the plane, and they handed us paperwork with vouchers for each transfer, explained all the details, and had people lined up waiting for us at each destination. Greatly exceeded our expectations. Lori was always available for all our questions and made numerous tweaks to our plans as I'm sure we were far pickier than the normal customer. We'll definitely work with Lori to plan our next vacation!

Lori Wentworth responded:
Mike and Brie it was fantastic to work with you. I am thrilled that Belize was so wonderful for your trip. That is the best thing of using an agent is we are able to find the right vacation/destination for you and not putting you in a cookie cutter vacation. I can't wait to meet with you to hear all about the trip. Thank you for the photos they were perfect. All the best in your new lives together as husband and wife. Lori

Margie, Thank you for the memories on booking your daughters birthday party. It was a challenge, but I am so glad that everything worked out. My favorite part of the whole planning experience was the special excursion you took with just the girls. Lori

Super Agent
Lori has been very helpful in getting our cruises set up over the years. Had used another agent in the company who left and Lori stepped right up. I would say her mightiest task was when my wife, Debra, and I took Holland America Lines Grand World Voyage in 2008 and Debbie's bag was lost. This was when HAL had limited free shipping. Lori bought a suitcase and clothes for Debbie and had HAL ship it to us. It arrived some ten days into the cruise, Panama City, last stop before long streach of sea days and south sea islands with limited really no place to shop. These were her dress clothes for Formal Nights. Debbie's bag came also.

I don't think booking direct with HAL would have ensured this happy outcome. Plus Lori mad HAL gives us several hundred dollars shipboard credit because of this problem.

Lori laid out trips in Hawai'i when we made our own trip. no tours.

Just a sample of what she has done.
