Leslie Swanson Travel is passionate about crafting unforgettable experiences. I believe in the power of travel to open doors, stir inspiration, and bring people together. 

Through travel, we are able to discover and learn from people around the world and grow with those we love.



"For me, the trip was truly the experience of a lifetime.  

It was the most fantastic itinerary filled with some of the most diverse and culturally different experiences imaginable.  We loved the accommodations, history, food, cooking, nature, but mostly the lovely people.

We’d love to expound upon the wonderfulness of—well, everything.  Every new location seemed to exceed the previous one:)"

"I cannot tell you how ideal our trip was"

"All the treats along the way were just wonderful! Wine in the rooms, $100 credits, yummy breakfasts, cheese plates, CHAMPAGNE & MACARONS for the big birthday, and organizing the Moulin Rouge birthday treat as well...WOW! We are SOLD."

From cosmopolitan Tel Aviv to Jerusalem's Old City, exotic Amman to ancient Petra, snorkeling the Red Sea to hiking the Negev Desert, and so many more fascinating places and experiences in between, I savored every moment of my month's immersion in Israel and Jordan! I was so impressed by how carefully you listened to what I wanted out of my trip and then expertly orchestrated an adventure I'll never forget. Gotta love the Canterbury Journeys team! I can't wait to see what you put together for the next one!

Canterbury Journeys gave me the Italian trip of a lifetime.

They are able to draw on the extensive resources of seasoned travel professionals making sure every single logistical need is met but, there is so much more to it.  Leslie and Gretchen have personally traveled to nearly every nook and cranny of the planet so they can anticipate needs you would never think about and create experiences you would never know to consider. My daughter and I will never forget our Tuscan cooking class or the impromptu golf cart ride through a sparkling Roman evening...Never would I have been able to put this trip together on my own. We are so grateful to Canterbury Journeys.
