About Leslie Carroll Designs in Travel
Leslie Kramer and Carol Gerst have been travel colleagues and close friends since the 1980’s, when they each owned their own travel agencies. In the intervening 30 years, their passion for travel has brought them to destinations as far-flung as Bali, Bhutan, Egypt, Estonia, India, Kenya, and Zimbabwe and dozens of other locales – from cosmopolitan hubs to remote outposts. They have organized and led groups throughout the world, and have also organized and hosted groups visiting the United States. In 2007, they merged their agencies (and their names) to create Leslie Carroll Designs in Travel. While they have orchestrated group tours for many types of travelers (students, adventure-seekers, museum executives , and VIPs), their favorite clients are for those who appreciate travel as much as they do. In addition to creating one-of-a-kind travel experiences, Leslie and Carol work together designing one-of-a-kind jewelry. Their acclaimed Leslie Carroll Designs line is carried by boutiques in the U.S.
