My Background

I love what I do!! Even after 30 plus years!

Working closely with you to create the most amazing holidays anywhere in the world is what I do.

Along with this passion, I have developed extensive travel expertise.  I have worked on cruise lines, managed travel and cruise line offices (Australia & Canada), and personally experience 28 different cruises varying from sailing vessels River Cruises, Paddle Steamers and all sizes and classes of Ocean Cruise Liners.

I also traveled the world in many different travel styles, from overland camping adventures in India, 4 star bus tours in Europe, backpacking the South Pacific, all inclusive holidays around the world, 5 star hotel stays, Safaris in Africa and more....

My wide-ranging travel experiences and knowledge of the travel industry is at your disposal to create a holiday that is unique to you.  Some of my specialty areas are Africa, Australia, Hawaii and the South Pacific.

"Solo Travel" trips is an area of travel I am developing as a service to those of you who want to travel and are prevented from doing so as you do not yet have a travel partner.  My goal is to connect compatible individuals so they can still fulfil their travel dreams.

"Escorted Tours" is another area I am continuing to expand.  I just return from escorting my second African Safari to Kenya and Tanzania in August 2013.

No matter where you travel to, each adventure offers the opportunity to grow within yourself through the people you meet and the marvels you experience.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you to plan many unforgettable holidays.!!

Happy Travels

We decided on a last minute holiday with sun and palm tress. Yvonne found up good air fares and low cost rental car specials. We visited 2 Hawaiian Islands with no problems of any kind. It did not even rain one day in 15 so thank you to Yvonne for knowing when to travel where and for making it happen so quickly for us. We plan to travel again in the spring and will use her again.

Yvonne had our trip very organized, which gave us "peace of mind". Transfers, etc. were with reputable businesses, therefore we landed up in places we intended to go. Our accommodations were above expectations, mainly due to her requests with the hotels. She explained in detail were we could encounter issues, and gave excellent advise, which enabled us to get to where we wanted to go. If she had not given us this advise, we would have missed some of our excursions. She was very good to deal with, patient and pleasant. We will deal with her again.

Our trip was planned very well and explained just as well. We are leaving today so I can't tell you how it went . But it looks like it will be a smooth sailing and that's to our travel agent. We could not have planned this without her help. I would recommend her to all my friends and we will continue to use her in the future. Regards Glen Buettner Theresa Sambrook

Awesome Trip to Tucson

By: Andi

Reviewed on: 29 Nov 2014

I recently traveled down to Tucson, AZ from Canada. I hardly every travel in the US and didn't even know the names of the airlines to check. I asked for Yvonne's help and within a day I had three options for the travel - all of which were over $300 cheaper than any options I had found. My tickets came via email and travel insurance was arranged for me. The connections allowed me enough time to comfortably get to my next flight, but not too long to get bored. It was all very stress free and enjoyable. I highly recommend Yvonne's services!

Thanks for your great service in booking my trip to Florida. Even with the delay on the way down, I would definitely fly Southwest again. Looking forward to my next trip to New Zealand. Where else can you send me??

I experienced weather delays on my multi-leg vacation and Yvonne worked tirelessly to get me where I needed to be in order to enjoy my holiday. She even made sure that my travel insurance claim was started correctly since the insurance company's initial response to my call was to deny coverage. I wouldn't have been able to do it without Yvonne!

Personal service with a travel expert

Met Yvonne at a travel evening she was hosting. Amazing photos and information of Africa. We spoke with her after the presentation and she was knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We ended up booking a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula with her and she had our travel package laid out down to the last detail. She covered all the details, even ones we hadn't thought to ask her about. She gave us great information on the excursions we were interested in and gave us ideas for ones we had thought might not be a match for our family. She listened to the kind of holiday we were interested in having and she delivered. We would definitely recommend her to anyone thinking of taking a holiday, anywhere. She is a pleasure to deal with and our looking forward to our next holiday (a second one booked through her!)

Amazing customer service

Yvonne went above and beyond to provide me with my trip of a lifetime to Africa with my son. She listened to every detail about the experience we told her we wanted and provided more than we could have ever imagined possible. Her attention to detail in choosing the safari lodges, excursions and hotels in the cities we visited were exactly what we were looking for and the travel itinerary she provided us was amazing and left nothing to chance with our travels. It made our 26 day holiday so incredibly stress free and we just enjoyed our time together. Best of all she provided all of our wishes on budget. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know that travels. I have never had such personalized service from an agent before. Even the lady she was working with in Africa touched base with us during our travels there to make sure everything was going great. I have started saving for my next adventure and it will definitely be booked thru Yvonne! Thank you for everything.

Great service!

As this was a business trip, it was great to have things organized for me so that I could concentrate on the things at hand. Accommodation was at the Delta Winnipeg, which is very centrally located in the city and made it easy to attend my meetings. Stellar job Yvonne, thanks!
