Do you have a dream vacation? Connect with me and I connect you with the world.

I always enjoyed booking trips for my family online, until one day my nephew said, “You should start a travel agency.” I’d been self-employed in the insurance and industrial supply fields for more than 30 years, so becoming a self-employed travel agent felt familiar. Six weeks later, my wife Sharon and I were booking travel for clients! Group travel is my specialty. Every day, I learn more to help serve my clients and manage all the details that a large group trip requires. I’m licensed by the Travel Industry Council of Ontario and have completed the commodore level with from Princess Cruises and the expert plus level with Royal Caribbean to further serve my clients. I also have a certificate as an Australia expert. I have been certified with C.I.E, Tours International for Ireland and Britain. The most exotic and complex trip I have booked to date was a Paul Gauguin cruise for my wife's boss (no pressure there!). They cruised the South Pacific and spent some extra nights in Bora Bora; returned via Los Angeles and went on San Francisco for a week-long conference; then returned to Ontario via Detroit. I arranged every detail from the air to lodging to transfers to excursions. I booked a group of 14 to Mexico. The group was split. Half live in Ontario and the other half in Alberta. I needed to co-ordinate flights, transfers and accommodations from two airports, and 5 room assignments in sets of 2. Since 8 were children the split was a little complex. My wonderful grandchildren take up most of my free time. There are seven of them, of all ages, from toddler to I also spend some time working with local charities including helping sponsor an Exceptional Rider program, which enables young people with handicaps to enjoy riding horses. The best trip Sharon and I have taken is a cruise to Alaska: it was so incredible. The scenery is breathtaking and words cannot describe it. You have to see it! I like to explain it this way; every time you open your eyes, you are looking at a postcard. Let me help you book your dream vacation to remember.
