My Background

Over the past 24 years I have planned and collaborated with clients to make the best trips possible given their needs, wants and budget. After all these years, I still truly enjoy planning and developing trips for my clients and it shows in my high client referral rate and exceptional customer service.

I love adventure and active travel and going off the beaten path. I have extensive knowledge of Ecuador and the Galapagos, Peru, SE Asia, Antarctica, Africa and expedition and river cruises. I’m also an Aussie Specialist, Un-Cruise Adventurer and Ecuador Specialist.

I travel with my family and so I know what it takes for a family to have a memorable and enjoyable holiday, one that is talked about around the dinner table for years!

I collaborate with you to make the best trip possible given your needs, wants, budget and expectations. Seeing my clients’ photos and hearing the excitement when they talk about their holidays is why love the opportunity help you make memories. It drives me to make each and every itinerary special in some way for my clients.

Kim is Amazing!

By: Sunshinegirl

Reviewed on: 17 Jul 2017

Kim is truly a leading professional in her industry! She is honest and so very knowledgeable. She covers all of the details, very thorough & efficient. I love that she is so well traveled & experienced and we trust every recommendation given by her! She works hard for you to ensure your experience is one you will love! I have had in the past worked with other agents and Nobody compares to Kim! So much so, that when I moved out of the country, I still call Kim to take care of us! She is the best of the best!

Europe 2017

Great - she was knowledgable, open to our ideas and listened to what we really wanted out of our vacation. She sent us updates if there were any issues along the way - wildfires in Croatia and a British Airways strike. She took a huge amount of the stress out of our planning, and it was nice to know we had an expert back home if we ever needed her.

As always Kim gets the job done! When we needed a tour guide for one day, she found us a reasonably priced tour and guide within 3 hours. We had an excellent tour with an informative, friendly guide!

Kim was always so quick to respond to any of my requests, and living across Canada, was not ever an issue. SAVED OUR WHOLE TRIP..... CONTACTED ME THRU THE LAST NIGHT, WHEN ALL OUR RETURN FLIGHTS HAD BEEN CANCELLED. GUIDED us to get onto the correct flights home! Amazing LADY!

Adventures in Croatia

By: bootcamper

Kim provided us with a great itinerary in Croatia. we enjoyed the hiking, cycling and walking tours. Our accommodations were conveniently located and very comfortable. We suggested an earlier start time and our guides accommodated us. Looking forward to our next adventure! t

Dubai to Singapore on Windstar

By: Bruce & Cindy

Reviewed on: 10 Dec 2017

Kim found us great airfare, hotels and dealt with the details of booking the cruise with the Windstar office. We research most of our travels ourselves, and we have found a great ally in Kim, as she adds great value to our trips by recommending things that are beyond our scope and knowledge. We will continue to use her and recommend her to anyone. We particularly like her efficiency and get-things-done attitude.

Our trip to Tanzania couldn't have been planned better. From the choice of national parks, tented camps, safari lodge to the delicious food, everything was perfect. We saw so many animals and several very close to our vehicle. Kim's tips for travel were very helpful.
