My Background

Bonjour! Hola! Nin Hao! Since I can remember, I have had a love of languages which fuels my passion for travel, food and different cultures. Planning trips for my clients over the last fifteen years, I have planned it all from visiting grandma for the first time to going on their dream vacation. I love giving my clients an experience that they will never forget like having Dim Sum in Paris, going backstage at the Russian ballet or being a panda bear nurse for the day in China. I have traveled to some wonderful places in the world; London, Paris, Russia, New York, St. Lucia, Exuma and many more. My dream trip was to China, which was at the top of my bucket list. Now, I need to start create a new list, would you like to share what is on yours? I would love to help you check those places off your bucket list and add to it too, shall we get started?

Our recent holiday went off without a hitch thanks to Karina. She had everything organized for us from the cruise to all of the transfers and hotels. Even the planes were on time! We will certainly use her again and recommend her to all of our friends. Thank you Karina.

I have worked with Karina for almost 10 years I believe. She is very resourceful and efficient. She really cares about you and is always in contact to make sure all of the finer points of your trip are covered off. If she doesnt know something she says so and is back to you quickly after finding the answer. I trust her implicitly and enjoy the experience working with her. If you require anything further please contact me again.

Karina is quite familiar with our needs, likes and dislikes. As a result, our trips are pleasant, with few hassles. She is patient with us, spending a lot of time searching for that perfect trip that we mumbled about for years. [ie: the Upper Amazon] She is a very capable salesperson -for example, she booked us on an Oceania cruise in May just a week after we returned from this Crystal cruise.That's scary!

I've been using Expedia or Booking.com for the past few years and a friend told me about Karina, as we were having a heck of a time booking something in Mexico last minute. After some initial research into where we thought we'd want to go, we left it with Karina who checked out three places and gave us great sound advice. We booked with her and then asked whether she could contact the all-inclusive resort to book some dinners at their restaurants, since this can often be a pain once you arrive. She got us a great variety of reservations and good times as well! From start to finish, this is my new way to book travel. Forget on line services, at the same price, this is the way to go. Friendly, quick to respond, and very helpful and knowledgeable, Karina did a great job. Thanks very much, Karina!

Although we ran into a couple of hiccups this team worked hard both on and off the clock to make sure we had the best experience possible.

Our Baltic cruise was a great experience. The highlight of highlights was, of course, St. Petersburg. Our driver (Boris of course - after all it is Russia) and Julia, our guide - both from A&K - were marvelous. Everything went according to plan. We had great access to the sites we visited along with marvelous commentary. Travel for the 2 of us for both days was easy and comfortable and uneventful. We got to see great historical icons, and 3 fantastic metro stations. Other that St. Petersburg, Oceania was well, Oceania. Outstanding accommodation, great ports, an outstanding Cruise Director (Ray), and some great new friends. That said, the North Sea is not to be trifled with and has a mind of its own during stormy weather. I guess we all need t-shirts that state that "I survived the rouge wave".

Wonderful South American Adventure

Karina arranged an excellent two-week South American adventure for my wife and me, which included a magical visit to Machu Picchu and a great four-day boat trip in the Galapagos Islands. Tours of Lima, Cusco, and Quito were also included. All transfers were well organized and were handled by friendly and courteous guides and drivers. Our tour guides in Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Quito, and the Galapagos islands were friendly, spoke perfect English, were very knowledgeable, and all of the tours were informative. Hotel rooms in Lima, Quito, and the Casa Andina Hotel in the Sacred Valley of the Incas were excellent, and rooms in Cusco and Aguas Calientes were good. The boat in the Galapagos was not quite what we hoped for, but the food was good, the other guests were fun, and the crew was excellent.

Needed to get away, cost effectively, while still having the necessary level of service etc. With Karina expertise we decided up Luxury Bahia Principle. Amazing place, clean, very friendly and because we chose that resort we had access to the other 3 resorts. HUGE beach catering to quiet or active. Lots pools/things to do/lots restaurants, as well as majorly large buffets. Under a restricted diet, and had zero issues with food. Room was clean. Large resort, so lot of walking was the only thing. Which we had a place closer to the beach, but again not that big of issue all things considering. Don't waste money on the onsite on the dinner & Mexican Fiesta. Only go to the Mexican Fiesta after the dinner. Cheaper, and same view. The only challenge had was the flights. Pretty crammed if you are a larger shouldered individual (No option plus), and delayed in Mexico for an hour waiting, for the condensation accumulated on the wings (ice) to melt and stop dripping/verified.

Another awesome trip booked for us by Karina. She knew our two families like to do a winter warm getaway and found us an amazing deal at a fabulous property. I was nervous, having done the same resort 3 years in a row, but trusted her when she said this was even better. And it was!!! Thanks Karina-such a wonderful vacation for us all.

Karina was very knowledgeable and excellent to follow up as needed to any question. When we were offered a much lower price on a Canadian at par deal she was quick to adjust the cruise. Her interface with the cruise line was very appreciated. Wouldn’t hesitate to book with her agsin
