Caribbean Specialist

As a fourth generation West Indian, I have a special love of the Islands of the Caribbean. One of my favorite islands is Aruba with the very friendly locals, many fine and fun dining options, the walkable towns and casinos. I also love St. Lucia f...

Viking River Cruises Specialist

Cruising doesn’t need to be restricted to a coastline. River cruises can take you through inland Europe, Asia, and other destinations with all the comfort and convenience of a luxury ship.


No sea days means you can jam pack your itinerary full of active shore excursions – typically included in the price – and getting off the megaship Caribbean routes will often afford you a more intimate experience on a smaller boat.


Europe has a plethora of river cruises to choose from. You could travel from Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine, passing through Germany’s best wine region. Perhaps you’ve always dreamt of visiting France – the Seine, the Loire, and the Rhone are all excellent options. Want to go a little further off the beaten path? Consider exploring Portugal’s Douro region in-depth, or cover a lot of ground on the Danube, which could include stops in Munich, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Budapest, Hungary; or even Bucharest, Romania.


Several major cruise lines offer river cruise itineraries, but my favorites to work with are Avalon, AmaWaterways and Viking. Viking is probably the biggest household name in river cruises and caters to experienced travelers with a special interest in geography, history, and culture.  Viking is the perfect fit for most river cruisers, especially first timers.  They boast comfortable ships and great cuisine.  But whether Viking, Avalon or AmaWaterways is you ultimate choice, you are guaranteed a great experience and lasting memories.

We Have the Travel Bug
Rick and I returned from Australia Wednesday of this week, and we had an amazing time! For all the effort it took to get us there it was so worth it-both for us and for you. We have the travel bug now and are starting to talk about other places we want to visit after our Alaska cruise next year. Iceland for sure and probably some river cruises, as well as Antarctica.

It was obvious to us after a few days there that you really know what you are doing because all of the details flowed together seamlessly. We did not have any hitches and thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities. Our favorites were the bridge climb and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef, but everything was fun without any duds.

Thank you so much for all of the hard work you put into making it happen for us. You will definitely have repeat customers with us.

Last minute Honeymoon
Working with Christi was a very easy process. I found her on-line through her great reviews so I had to go and meet with her. She was very professional and provided me with several options for our last minute honeymoon destination. She was literally there for me throughout the entire process, even answering questions after hours.. We will be using her for all our trips that we plan in the future..

Best trip ever!
We chose Christi Rush because of her knowledge of Hawaii. We wanted our 10th anniversary trip to be perfect and it was. She provided many flight and resort options for us to fit our schedule and wants. Christi helped us with excursions as well. She is an absolute gem and I would highly recommend her and also use her services again. Thanks Christi for making our vacation so lovely!

First Time Travelers
My husband and I decided we wanted to do some traveling, so both being first time travelers we decided to look into a travel agents. After finding one travel agency that was by appointment only, we were so relieved and happy to walk into Travel Leaders and find Christi there to talk to without having to make an appointment. Christi listened to all of what we wanted to do and how much we wanted to spend and came up with the perfect plan for a vacation. She helped us with the whole booking process and walked us through everything. When we had questions or concerns she was always available to answer those questions both in person, over the phone, or through email. I emailed her a week before our vacation and within 5 minutes she answered all of my questions and made me feel so much better about our upcoming vacation. I loved the hotel she suggested and followed all of her advice and had an amazing trip with my husband. We would both absolutely recommend Christi Rush to everyone we know!!
