My Background

I really fell in love with travelling when I did a 6 week Wildlife Expedition in Costa Rica. My hands on work contributed to the long-term management and conservation of the rainforest. I spent weeks tracking Jaguars, recording bird calls, teaching English to the locals and having fun white water rafting.

After that I knew I had to do something that I love, from that moment on I started my career in travel. It has enriched every part my life, there is something to be said for loving what you do!

I have had some incredible adventures, my most recent was in Sri Lanka, Greece, India and the Galapagos.

Next on my list is the Gorillas and maybe India again.

I love organizing holidays for clients whether it’s a short trip or a dream vacation. I take pride in every arrangement down to the littlest detail. Contact me and I will prepare the best quality travel experience with our worldwide connections.

Thanks to Amie for getting us this great deal at intercontinental le grand! We got a bottle of champagne, box of sweets and a VIP invitation letter when we arrived to the hotel. Then upgraded our room to a club lounge room so we can have free buffet and free drinks all day long!! Simply the best!!

Amie made it easy again. All I had to do was show up. This was the second trip Amie helped me to make and I find her knowledge and expertise indispensable. I will certainly be asking her for a third very shortly. Travel is the best educator and Amie's efforts make experiencing different cultures and activities around the globe an absolute problem free joy!

Amie was wonderful through the whole trip booking process and all the way to pre-departure. She spent a lot of time with me going over trip options for my first time in South America. To help me choose the best tour option and feel comfortable, she also brought in the Tucan contact Tony who is from South America and walked me through various tour options and offered opinions. They were very patient and helpful in helping with my research and making a decision. I was very comfortable and happy with my choice. Amie definitely provided me a peace of mind in the entire process, no question about it. She was very professional but also personal, especially she travels so much herself so it's easy to talk to her. The tour turned out to be a blast in the end as Amie promised and I expected it! I cant be happier working with Amie and Vision travel.

Amie was very professional, friendly and patient in customizing my trip to South Africa. I ended up with great tips and ideas and stayed in the most beautiful hotels. Everything on our trip worked out smoothly and we had a fabulous time. I am looking forward in planning another trip in the future with Amie's help.

Ecuador & the Galapagos

By: Jimbo

Reviewed on: 23 Feb 2016

My 18 day trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos was well-planned by Amie, who was able to find me the kind of small yacht for the Galapagos that I wanted to use for my 10 day trip in the Galapagos. She also found me a cute little boutique hotel in Quito, as well as setting up local trips to landmarks in and around Quito as well as two-day trip to the Cloud Forest of Mindo. Originally I was planning to go to the rainforest of the Amazons and stay at an eco-lodge there, but i had to make some changes and substituted more time in Quito and a 2-day trip down the Avenue of the Volcanos instead. Everything went well. Thanks.

Amie was a real gem. Having planned all our holidays in the past ten years without the help of any travel agents, Amie has made us wonder whether we have missed out all those years. She was very approachable and would not only provide her personal recommendations but also look for ways to finding savings for us. We will no doubt continue to work with her for our future holidays!

Amie is a delight to work with. We don't go on the 'usual' easy trips and she works hard with us to meet our travel needs. We have worked with Amie for a number of years and will continue to do so. Although we could book much of our travel ourselves, Amie's expertise and patience in guiding us through our upcoming journeys in the best manner possible is why we remain her clients.

If you wanted a trusted and competent Agent, who is pleasant, knowledgeable and provides everything you would hope for - that's Amie. We have worked with Amie for a few years now, and we are more than pleased. She provides accurate information and works to get the best program for the client. I trust her implicitly. Over the past few years she has become a good friend as well. Our trips to the Empress gets better each time we go. Cannot wait for next year.
