My Background

I’ve been in the travel industry since 1999 and can truly say that this is more than my “job” – I truly enjoy making people’s travel dreams come true! I specialize in Ocean and River cruising (having sailed with Holland America, Celebrity, Voyages to Antiquity and Avalon Waterways). I am also happy to help plan any sort of vacation you wish. Whether it's a picture-perfect destination wedding, a family getaway to an all-inclusive resort, a hassle-free escorted coach tour of Europe or a private tour, I am here for you!

My clients tell me they like my attention to detail, my enthusiasm, and my knack of recommending those special, unforgettable experiences: that special restaurant, that charming hotel or great little town.

I am a Certified Travel Counsellor with the Canadian Institute of Travel Counsellor and also an Avalon Waterways river cruise specialist and I have visited more than 15 countries. While I am based in Canmore, Alberta (about 100 kms/60 miles from Calgary), I am happy to advise you, no matter where you live. Et je parle francais aussi!

I look forward to hearing from you!

Francoise is awesome!

By: Ian

Reviewed on: 18 Feb 2018

She is conscientious, comprehensive, considerate, enthusiastic, flexible, hardworking, personable, intelligent, knowledgeable and helpful. In short she is excellent. I have never had a better travel agent. I recently traveled to India and when I had to return early she bent over backwards to get me home quickly. she insisted that I go to Agra while in India to see the Taj Mahal which was literally a momentous event. What a great day that was! She knew about the food, about hotels and how to get around. She arranged my ground transportation and hotels as well as my flights. I can say without a doubt I would highly recommend Francoise to anyone and everyone.

Francoise is a very friendly lady, and not afraid to answer questions, even though they might sound silly at times.

Alaskan Cruise & India Tour

By: Margaret

Reviewed on: 26 Nov 2017

I would highly recommend Francoise to anyone seeking a travel advisor/guide extraordinaire! Francoise is a gem to work with. She manages all travel details with finesse and makes sure any problems are dealt with swiftly and professionally. Francoise has lots of great suggestions for how to make one's trip even more memorable. She truly takes care of her clients. On my Alaskan Cruise Francoise was quick to get in touch with me about an upgrade she felt I should take advantage of and on the India tour I was lucky enough to see her in action as she guided a group of ladies through what was certainly a trip of a lifetime. I do not hesitate to recommend Francoise to friends and family when they are considering planning their next trip.

Would Recommend

Working with Francoise was a pleasure. She was quick to follow up on any requests or change of plans. Before leaving on our trip we went over any questions we had and she made sure that we understood all the details. After the trip she followed up on how everything went and any problems that we had. She also asked our opinion on hotels and transportation that we used. We would not hesitate to call her again for our next trip.

Always Excellent

By: Gregor

Reviewed on: 20 Nov 2017

We have used Francoise many times for many different kinds of trips. She has always come through with itineraries that suit our needs. She does this by having an interest in what we do, that interest makes her ask the right questions. Perfect every time. We had a missed flight incident once when flying out of India, a quick call to Francoise and she had us on the next flight out with no charge. Would highly recommend.

First Cruise

By: Ray & Pat Ryan

Reviewed on: 24 Nov 2017

Francoise was a joy to work with and always readily available to answer any questions. We are in our seventies she was conscientious of our needs. She prepared our itinerary exactly as we wanted it and then provided us with a detailed copy of it . The cruise information and the accommodations she booked, including a number of shuttles, all worked out for us. We had a wonderful trip which we felt was due largely to Francoise being such a knowledgeable and helpful agent.

Emerald river cruise

By: Sarge

Reviewed on: 29 Nov 2017

This was our third or fourth trip arranged by Francoise. We have followed her as she moved to different travel companies through the years. Francoise gets to know her client's likes and preferences and works diligently to find the best possible tour, flight arrangements, accommodation, etc. that best suits our needs. Francoise has learned the trade first hand as she is an extensive traveler herself. Her love of travel is truly evident and infectious. She is genuinely interested in her clients' travel experiences and her desire for feedback is real. Whether traveling herself or enjoying travel through her clients, she is enthusiastic and interested. Top this off with her friendly, accomodating and trustworthy attitude and you have a great travel advisor.

Francoise booked great flights for us, with very little time waiting in airports. Although the return connection between Queenstown and Auckland was very tight in terms of catching our flight to Vancouver, we made it and even landed a few minutes early in Vancouver. Thanks, Francoise!

Working together to create a wonderful vacation

Reviewed on: 16 Sep 2018

Francoise and I hit it off right away. We were able to identify a cruise on a line I hadn't tried before through Francoise's efforts - including a comparison of the line I usually use and the new one. Silversea was perfect for what I wanted in a cruise. Francoise worked with Silversea to get me excellent flights that suited my needs. And she negotiated a lovely shipboard credit. Will be working with Francoise again on my next cruise!!
