My Background

After finishing university and living in Germany for 3 years, I began a career as a travel counselor in the early 90s.

A few years ago, our family moved to France for 4 years where I planned our many adventures across Europe. We experienced road trips, ski in the Alps, cruises on large and small luxury ships, and river cruises on the Rhine and Danube.

My recent travels have taken me on a beautiful trip to India, a cruise on the north Atlantic coast of Canada and USA and also, the Mediterranean, a fun holiday at Disney and a family vacation in beautiful Barbados.

My experiences, curiosity and attention to detail in the preparation of itineraries permit me to prepare for my clients journeys suited to their style of travel.

I hope to have the opportunity to make you benefit from my passion and enthusiasm.

It is with great pleasure that I will be listening to your needs and desires in order to plan and help you realize your travel adventures.

This agent is very efficient and kind. The documents are complete. She really have us feeling that our trip is important and that she will do her best to make sure that everything is done the right way. Many little details that makes the difference! I would recommend her to my friends or family.

Francine was perfect for us! Having been given the brief of wanting to spend 5 days in New York, seeing and doing lots, she saw to organising everything, down to the last detail! It was fantastic just to go away and enjoy so much of New York, without having to think much about the details. Every day we had a separate envelope with any maps, vouchers, tickets or details we needed for that day, it was PERFECT! A stress-free way for our non-get-up-and-go family to GET UP AND GO!

We are novice travelers and Francine was very patience with our numerous questions about our trip to Australia. She found us great rates for air fare, making sure that we had good seats and the most direct flights. She listened to us and planned a holiday that catered to our preferences. She found us excellent accommodations. She gave us good advice about travel insurance, visas and car rentals. She sent us numerous emails and we appreciated the personal itinerary that she made for us including maps of the airports, travel tips etc. We had a fantastic trip because we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything was perfect from the hotel check-ins, to the day trips and the airport shuttle. We would definitely contact Francine for future travel. In fact I have sent her contact information to several of my friends and family.

Après nous avoir bien écoutées, Francine nous a proposé le meilleur hôtel pour notre destination soleil, et ce choix s'est avéré excellent ! Elle s'est également assurée que nous aurions le meilleur plan d'assurance voyage. Elle nous a rapidement transmis toutes les infos et documents nécessaires au voyage. L'avant veille du départ, elle nous a contacté à nouveau pour vérifier si nous avions des questions. Nous sommes parties la tête tranquille et avons eu une superbe semaine de vacances. Merci Francine !

Best in the business!

Francine was a tremendous help throughout our planning process for our vacation. Because of a medical condition that we were dealing with, we needed to pick an optimum location that provided us with a wonderful vacation but an ability to return to Ontario on short notice. Francine helped us focus our choices through patience and expert guidance thereby allowing us to have a beautiful restful vacation.

Francine was our agent and we feel she did an outstanding and wonderful job. My husband and I have made trips overseas on our own but we have never used a travel agency before. All our transfers, tours and connections went exactly as scheduled - absolutely no hiccups or late shows by any of our tours or transfers. From the beginning, Francine did a great job in calling me to get a feel for what types of things we like to do so that she could plan an itinerary that catered to our interests. She prepared a travel folder with our itinerary and all tour and transfer documents - we went on our trip feeling organized and stress-free. I cannot say enough good things about this trip. We had zero problems while traveling and I credit that to Francine’s knowledge and ability. PS: Thank you for the selfie-stick :)

Amazing service

Reviewed on: 07 Sep 2017

Francine is totally amazing. I did some business with some travel agent in the past but Francine is way above all of those. She took the time to explain to me what will happen in the cruise trip I purchased, gave me some tips that only a thorough agent will be able to do. Honestly, i was probably the biggest doubter, before doing business with Francine, of the true necessity to use a travel agent with all the infos available around over the Internet. My primary job (40 hours a week) is to find those infos with my web marketing agency and let me tell you something, she is way above what i though and i saved so much time and money working with her. The truth is if all the travel agent in this world was like Francine, we wouldn't even think about this. I will for sure talk to her in the future to plan any future cruise and you should too. Thanks again Francine for you wonderful patience and amazing service You are truly the best Julien Sarradet

Francine did a great job. There was a premium on this trip and she recommended how to spend it, and we were very happy with the results. This was the first time I was traveling with my wife after major knee surgery and she made sure that the arrangements with the airline were OK. Great job, Thanks Francine.

She was wonderful. Always supportive and full of suggestions. The cruise was exactly as she described and her choice of hotels met our needs perfectly. Even at the end of our 5 week stay, she responded almost immediately to a required change of plans. It was so reassuring. She will be my travel advisor from now on.

Surprising. I got more than I expected. The local agency Objectif Monde was very informative. I expected just a shuttle. They came to the hotel to confirm details of my airport transfer and I ended up signing onto a two day tour. It was great. Had I not dealt with Francine I wound not have had anything like the service I received.
