    Lesa was very nice and helped us set up the perfect vacation, even when we had some trouble with house rental, called her and she got right on helping to get it worked out, even though her Dad had died and she was with her family. We really appreciate all she did and was there for us. So if you want the perfect vacation or get away call Lesa Cornell and she will help you and be there for you. Thank you again Lesa. 
Lesa is amazing! She has been a tremendous help navigating the travel waters through the covid 19 mess. I would 100 percent recommend her for all your travel needs!!! She is caring, sweet, and most importantly helpful. Let her help you book your next vacation!
Lesa is amazing! We asked her to find something relaxing and fun for our honeymoon! She did it, we had a beautiful Oceanfront room, she made sure we had a direct flight with upgraded seats like we asked, she gave us options for excursions. Our transportation was all set up for us, she was always available for any additional questions. We had so much fun and such a good experience we are booking with her again for a trip next year.
Lesa is great at her job! We just go back from our wonderful vacation this past weekend. We went on an international trip and she helped us get all of our necessary documentation done so it was less stress on us. She is well organized and can get you the answers to your questions! By far one of the best vacations we have had in a while! Looking forward to booking with this company again!
Lesa helped book a wonderful Disney and Universal trip for my mother and I. My mother got sick halfway through our trip and we unfortunately couldn’t finish our vacation, but up until then, it was amazing. Thank you Lesa!!
Lesa is simply amazing. Another successful Disney world trip this time for WDW Marathon weekend. No issues with the hotel All Star Music or the Quick Service Plan. Lesa is always available for questions or changes with the reservation or if issues arise. Thanks so much! Can’t wait for my next trip.
Lesa does an excellent job! She goes over and above to ensure your questions are answered. Very thorough. Strongly recommend Lesa if you are thinking about travel.
I would never think of planning a cruise without an agent. Lesa had everything planned. I just had to follow her instructions..then sit back and enjoy. Thanks for a job well done.😎🥰
First time using a travel agent and I'll never go back to planning my own trips! Lesa is extremely nice and helpful. She is outstanding at her job!
She was wonderful getting us set up for our honeymoon and even handled the cancellation when the hurricane hit! We love Lesa and recommend her to everyone!
Lesa worked with us and was very knowledgeable, so glad we chose her!
Lesa is fabulous with the details!! Received my packet today for my upcoming trip to PA! Answers all the questions in a very timely manner! Very pleasant to talk to!!
Perfect Getaways helped us plan our adventures and took care of details we may have well overlooked. Lesa was there for us when we hit a travel snafu in Sweden and resolved the issue immediately. Highly recommend!

Lesa has made trip planning a breeze, even for a control freak like me who insists on typically planning every detail! She has planned several trips for me, and each time, her attention to detail and patience with all my questions was top notch! She is extremely considerate and will bend over backwards to make sure your trip is planned perfectly as she has with all of mine. The fact that she never charges a fee for any of her services was just icing on the cake! Given my past experiences with her, I would not hesitate to recommend her for ALL of you travel needs - from transportation to accommodations and everything in between!

Lesa was a pleasure to work with on planning our trip to Ireland. She used her expertise to get us the best rates for our accomodations. Her communication with us on all areas of our trip was top notch. Before we left she had all of our info for our trip including itinerary, hotel confirmations, maps, brochures, helpful travel advice, and many travel gifts put together in a bright yellow tote. This is just a bonus feature of Lesa's sunny personality. Looking forward to having Lesa put together our next vacation.

Perfect Getaways did a great job for us on our adventure. Lesa booked us a Panama Canal cruise for 17 days, from there she helped us with, car rentals, hotels, Amtrak and flights for the rest of our adventure from San Francisco to Las Vegas to Denver to Pennsylvania to Virginia then back to our home in Florida. What a perfect experience through Lesa/Perfect Getaways LLC WOW!!!! And to think she did all this and at the helm all the way and never charged us a fee for it. We will gladly use her again!

If you like to travel but do not like the planning part then Lesa Cornell at Perfect Getaways will get you the best travel plans. She is very knowledgeable and wants you to have the best vacation. Personally we have used her for many cruises and hotel reservations and Amtrak train trips. She is a traveler herself so she knows her stuff!
I like to plan our travel and tell Lesa what I want and she does all my booking for me. She has saved me many hours on the phone making my reservations and because we have used her services enough, she knows what we like and do not like.
Having a travel agent like Lesa who will go above and beyond to make your travels smooth and enjoyable is such an important part of travel these days. If any problems arise she will do her best to help. We recently were on a cruise and had a discrepancy with some on board credit. I sent her an email and in less than 24 hours, she had it solved for us. I could not have done that myself.
She also watches for pricing drops and other bonuses and will get you the best deals possible!
After doing all my travel plans by myself for years, I am so happy to have Lesa as my travel agent now. More free time for me and we still get great travels and someone we can count on if there are any issues. Give Lesa a try with your next vacation, I do not think you will be disappointed!
I really have to give a shoutout to Lesa Cornell with Perfect Getaway travel a shout out!!! She is an amazing travel agent. I received our travel packet today. Not only did she send all of our paperwork, she included pocket calendars, pens, reusable straws, and a gift card. She also sent both Haley and Bella goody bags with crayons, book and pencil. So super thoughtful. If anyone wants help planning your vacation, you should contact her.
