My Background

I embraced travel as my second career because I'm so personally passionate about seeing the world. I had planned trips for my family for years, then started creating them for friends.

I design a complete experience, conducting research, seeing to every little detail and contacting hotels, cruise lines and tour companies on my clients' behalf.

As a golf enthusiast, I enjoy creating trips for other golfers. I also have extensive experience with food and wine vacations, beach resorts (particularly the Caribbean) and spa travel. One memorable trip I planned was a private Italian villa vacation. While staying there, my clients took a hands-on cooking class from a local restaurant owner, then ate their multicourse meal in the company of locals.

I bring my personal cruise expertise to every voyage I plan. For a 20th anniversary trip, I booked clients on a Mediterranean cruise. They loved the history of Kusadasi and the markets of Istanbul and said it was the best trip they'd ever had.

Excellent Service Melia Cozumel

By: Bon


Reviewed on: 11 Feb 2016

We stayed at week at Melia Cozumel Resort in Feb/16. While the resort is older, we found the service to be excellent. Better than we've had in any similar resort. The drinks were pokey, the food was assorted and good. Always a fresh daily grill item. The beach was nice and sandy all the way into the ocean. We snorkeled at a location beside our resort and it was excellent. The resort was quieter at that time so not many line-ups. The rooms were clean and comfortable with lots of bottled water & care products. The entertainment was good however, I would not suggest this resort for the 20-30 crowd who don't have kids. It would be too laid-back. We absolutely LOVED the fact that the children's area and pool were completed separate and far away from the adult pool and bars. It was wonderful for us empty nesters. Warning, a local gas station scammed our credit card. Said the machine didn't work, we paid cash but they still charged our card. They are notorious.

Always great service!

Travelled to Maui. We gave been there before so we knew exactly where we wanted to be. Janice booked our Plus seats on Westjet for us as well. On the 737 planes I wouldn't suggest paying for Plus. On the 767....that was Plus! That's just for future reference for other clients wanting to know. Air Canada Rouge Premium has Westjet beat hands down. Thanks Janice for helping us out. We enjoyed our holiday!!!!

Janice did a fine job of booking our trip. From hotel, air, cruise, transfers, seat selection and insurance. She explained everything along the way. Her advice was welcomed and she answered all of my querys. Her friendly attitude was a pleasure, everything happened as planned, there were no surprizes. I certainly would deal with her again.

Excellent Resort

By: AB


Reviewed on: 12 Jun 2016

The resort was beautiful. Excellent service from the moment of arrival until departure. Very friendly and attentive staff. The diamond club service is a must. It makes the vacation a lot better. If you need anything at all, the butler is available. The shows were great. The room was large and comfortable. The beach was very beautiful and the resort was really clean. The food was much better than expected for Cuba. The Internet service is not great. It took a long time to connect. The spa services were great. Overall I would definitely visit again.

My trip was great. Eddie the trip director was great and Steve our driver was really nice. It was well organized, the extra Trips that Eddie did where really good. We had a little problem with the hotels and the beds They gave us a queen bed instead of two twins but we got it straightened out. I would travel with Trafalgar again. Thanks for such enjoyable trip.

Truly Memorable Trip

By: ghc/vflc


Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2016

Janice arranged a wonderful cruise on Holland America as well as recommendations for a pre and post cruise stay. We started in Barcelona where we enjoyed a few days and took in many of the City sights and restaurants. Her advice and recommendations were very helpful. We ended with a few days in Rome. We stayed at the hotel she suggested and it was nothing short of excellent in all regards -- location, quality, price, staff. Janice had arranged a tour for us at the Vatican and it was exceptional. We spent the day there, the most part of which was with a very knowledgeable guide (in fact I acquire her personal contact information for Janice to provide to other guests). We are regular customers of Janice's and we recommend her without hesitation. As she has done in the past, she again on this trip organized a wonderful and memorable event. Thank you Janice!

Cozumel Family Vacation

By: Jim M


Reviewed on: 26 Mar 2018

We used Janice to book a family vacation to Cozumel for March Break. She had been to the resort before so she was able to give me good advice about what to expect and bring to the island. She also helped us with information about day trips offered. Janice went above and beyond anything we were expecting from a travel agent. I wasn't too comfortable with booking our seats on the plane. She did that for us in both directions. It definitely was a relief knowing that all of the arrangements were professionally looked after by her. I would definitely use Janice again and wouldn't hesitate referring her to family and friends. Thanks again Janice.
