Group travel specialist land, sea, or combination

    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, I was 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.

    Another group was a Precision horse drill team going to the Calgary Stampede. Accommodations for 27 was very interesting in a city with more visitors than rooms. I was able to keep them together at the university dorms.

    My wonderful grandchildren take up most of my free time. There are 13 of them, of all ages, from toddler to adult and twin great granddaughters joined the family late 2018.

    My favourite trip was a cruise to Alaska. it was so incredible, I am planning to do it again in the near future. The scenery is breathtaking and words cannot describe it. You have to see it to believe it! I like to explain it this way; every time you open your eyes, you are looking at a postcard.

    I am ready to book an Alaskan cruise, or any other trip you desire, just for you. Let us help you book your dream vacation to remember.

Our first trip together

    Hello Dave,
    Just wanted to thank you for helping us with our vacation. Everything was so easy from checking in at the airport to getting to our hotel. The service was exceptional and the hotel's grounds were beautiful. Thank you for letting our families know that we had checked in safely too.
