How can we help you with your travel?

Founded in 2012 by Ginny Leser on Main Street Front Royal, Virginia and now operating from 122B E. Main Street, alongside other interesting businesses like Downhome Bakery, Ridgeline Designs and Shenandoah Confections & Tea Shop. Ginny has 6 years of travel planning experience but the most important thing she brings is empathy to listen and personally care more about your trip than even you do. She is on call 24/7 while you are on travel and will be there for you should any emergency arise.
Her partner, Cal Coolidge, “The Tourmaster,” is a former Air Force Officer and semi-retired business executive with business and personal travel experiences from all reaches of the earth. He has flown over 4 million miles with virtually every airline in the world and has personal travel and living experiences from 49 states and over 35 countries. Cal even owned and ran a small hotel in the Caribbean for a period of time in 2005-7.
Ginny and Cal work together to listen to your travel dreams and desires and can completely plan your trip from your front door and back.
Ginny uses her extensive experience and that of our travel planning partners such as GoGo Worldwide, Disney, and virtually every cruise line operating worldwide. Ginny is a specialist booking personal business and vacation travel and will take the lead on most itineraries involving individuals and family vacations. She stays abreast of specials being offered for destinations you would be most interested in, whether it is a 4-night get-away in the U.S. or Caribbean or that once in a lifetime 21-day trip to the Far East or Europe. In the past year she has helped travelers visit; Vietnam, Peru/South America, Scotland and Africa amongst many others.
The “Tourmaster”: Cal Coolidge was given that nickname by a group of golf buddies that he led on a 10-day adventure in Scotland and Ireland in 1992. He has continued to organize groups during his working life in both the defense and financial world.
In 1998 Cal spent 42 days in Scotland playing not only the famous courses such as St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Turnbury, but he searched out hidden gems all over the British Isles and Ireland. In September 2015 he will be leading 3 groups to the home of golf, whiskey and history.
Cal will be focusing on small to midsize groups wanting to travel and backroads exploring history/golf and whiskey, not to mention wine and good times meeting the locals.
Cal will also serve as our lead on business travel for individuals and small businesses. He brings 30+ years of business travel and meeting planning experience to Main Street Travel.
