My Background

After running a daycare for 20 years and raising my own 4 children I decided to change careers and spend some time with my other passion - Travel. I am very enthusiastic about travel and get very excited for everyone that I assist in planning a vacation. My goal is that everyone makes memories to last a lifetime through their travel experiences. From newlyweds going to Southeast Asia to traveling on a custom itinerary in Australia and New Zealand, I pride myself on working with clients to create unique experiences tailored to their travel dreams. I am looking forward to helping you too.

Nora was very helpful in helping us plan and book our upcoming trip. As we are not going until November I can't comment on this particular cruise yet. Our previous Oceania experience was amazing and thanks to Nora and the Vision 2000 team we decided to book again.

Without a doubt, NoraPearce is the best Travel Agent we have ever had.Nora goes the extra mile plus to meet our requests and comes back with a package beyond expectation.  It dosen't matter whether it is a weekend getaway or a four week vacation, Nora treats each request with the same care and enthusiasm.The itinerary that Nora presents leaves nothing to the imagination with each and every item listed in order and very explicit making for an enjoyable and worry free vacation.

My son was flying to Australia, a trip that no one in my family had done and we weren't sure what he could expect.  Nora booked the tickets, got seats with his friends, sent out information about the airport terminals, and let us know what meals and snacks would be provided on both the hop to LAX and the much longer flight to AUS.Thanks Nora!

Nora has been extremely helpful and goes that extra mile to satisfy your needs.   She builds a relationship with you so she knows exactly what type of travel you are interested in and your budget.     When she is doing research on her own, or is notified of new trips, she seems to run through some list of her clients that might fit the bill and might drop you a line to see if your interested.     It is never to the point of pestering you.   In fact, you learn to appreciate it, because the trip is so close to the things that interest you.She is not one to be satisfied with collecting your money.   She makes sure you are satisfied right up to, and after your trip.    Her personality is always cheerful and magnetic.    She has a great sense of humour and very pleasant with which to do business.I would certainly recommend her in a heartbeat.

Viking took care of all our needs. Service, friendly, food, tour arrangements and guides were excellent. Accomodations were lovely and entertainment was fun and informative. Our flights were on time--had to rush a little for connections but everything worked out well. Vikiing handled all our hotel arrangements in Budapest--we had top floor room looking over the Danube!! They gave us towels for Gillerts Bath and we paid in advance for admission. We were very lucky with the weather--sun everyday with only a few drops of rain on 2 days. Overall this was an outstanding trip. Scenery is overwhelming -- lots of memories and new found friends.

This was my 7th Oceania cruise. Only line I have ever sailed with and feel....why change.....it doesn't get much better than this. The food is excellent whether the informal Terrace Room, the main Dining Room or the Specialty Restaurants. The staff courteous, at times even over solicitous. I am looking forward to an Oceania cruise around the tip of South Africa in November, mainly for the game farm side trips.....something I have wanted to do all my life. I have chosen Oceania because I know what I will be getting.....and I like it.

Nora - Vision travel- best travel service

Booking with Nora was so wonderful.....and she was so helpful before and during the trip. The hotel itself was good , a little too far from St John's (50.00 U.S. Taxi ride)...what was disappointing was that one of the restaurants we were to use for our meals was shut down for the week and our Air Canada Rep had no idea that that was happening.....so we were STUCK eating at the buffet for all but 3 meals. The buffet was barely edible . Free wifi was only in the lobby, restaurants......not in your rooms unless you wanted to spend a fee of 60 U.S. Dollars for the week. They only had one bar open during the day by the pool till six and then it shut down. They also had one on the beach and one in Coco's restaurant. The other bar off of the lobby opened at six. We had issues with the hot water in our room.....either no hot water or it took 20-25 minutes for the shower to get any hot water. The staff were friendly but I found the hotel was too far from the city.

Vegas Trip Review

To Whom It May Concern Nora Pearce at Vision Travel Solutions - Ancaster, had recently put together another trip for us. This trip found us going to Las Vegas. This trip was a surprise trip, for my husband, for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. As per usual, Nora, did an outstanding job putting the trip together. We encountered no problems with the Park-and Fly Hotel, The Flight, Hotel in Vegas, Grand Canyon Tour, Booked Show, or our return trip back to Canada. Even at the Airport, one (1) call was made to the Park-and Fly Hotel, we were picked up without any problems and brought back to our car. We then arrived home safe and sound. I must say on Nora's end, with everything that was planned, there was absolutely no problems. Thank you. Douglas and Martina van der Veer
