My Background

I was born and raised in Victoria. I started off my travel career as a junior agent at a independent Travel Agency in 1980. In 1983 I moved to Eaton's Travel for 15 years and then moved to The British Columbia Automobile Assocciation for another 14 years. In 2009 BCAA decided to close its Travel Agencies and Vision Travel Solutions was more than happy to take myself and 11 of my co workers. In March 2010 Vision Travel Solutions opened its Royal Oak office and we are now an in house team of 14 agents and numerous outside agents. I have traveled extensively and I am constantly attending training sessions by our suppliers for the most up to date information on destinations and promotions. Vision Travel has access to many negotiated rates with airlines, hotels and cruise lines. We are also members of Virtuoso a consortium that has over 300 agencies in 20 countries.

We have had Sharon arrange flights for us for quite a few years and have always found her to be well informed and efficient. In the past we have recommended her to friends and family and will continue to do so.

Sharon has been my Travel Agent for many, many years and she has always done everything I have asked of her.When I asked her to book my wife an I on an unknown (at the time) cruise line she went up the line to get permission. She is, without doubt, the best traveel agent I have ever used. Sandy Peel

Sharon was wonderful in arranging all our flights and accommodations as we had some people coming some staying and other going from our destination. We wouldn't deal with anyone else.

We have been using Sharon as our travel agent for many years. She is so competent at her job. If she doesn't know the answer to our travel questions, she finds out and returns our call or e-mail right away. She is very friendly and never makes us feel that we are taking too much of her time. I have recommended her to many of our friends.

wonderful trip to Cambodia & Vietnam

This trip was absolutely amazing. We had to cancel it the previous year, but re booked and we are so glad we did. Every day was something different. It was nice visiting that part of the world and seeing how they have advanced since the wars in the 60s. Sharon has been our travel agent for many years. On this trip she helped us when we had to cancel a week before leaving and then with all the details on the re booked trip. Everything went as planned and we had all our documents in order. Sharon is always willing to answer questions, and if not sure, she searches it out for us and will phone or email with The answer. We have recommended Sharon to many of our friends. We plan to use her for many more years.

Very helpful as always

Sharon has been our travel agent for many years and has always been very friendly and knowledgeable. She answers all our questions and takes the time to explain things so we understand what our options are. We recommend her to others we know who want to travel and we will certainly be back to see her when we want to plan another trip.

It was great holiday and everything went as planned. Our only issue was the flights that Princess Cruise lines put us on for coming home. We had 6 flights and over 24 hours in the air or airports. Sharon is always so nice to deal with and makes sure we have everything in order before we leave.

The AC enhanced service made foe a much more comfortable flight, and the general attitudes and service were markedly better than last time I flew with them.The only hitch occurred on the return when The flight to Van.waslate causing me to miss the connection to Victoria. No big deal as there was room on the next one.BP

Sharon put together a very complicated trip for us that involved using airline points for air travel. We got to Athens early and added a trip after our cruise to Istanbul. It all went according to plan! Thanks, Sharon. We'll do it again.

We just finished a 14 day Caribbean Cruise on the Celebrity Eclipse. We had been on the Eclipse on its first voyage, so knew the ship. We did see where some of the chairs needed to be reupholstered, but it was still a beautiful ship. There was lots of shore excursions for each port. Meals were great and a variety. We had a great cruise and would highly recommend it. The beverage package was just great.

Great planning

Sharon really listened to what we were looking for and got the perfect trip organized for us and at a great price too. My friend and I really enjoyed our nine days in May vacation.

Very friendly, knowledgeable & timely service.

My friend and I took 10 day package trip to Las Vegas, Los Angeles and a repositioning cruise with Princess Lines back to Vancouver. Hotels, transfers and flights were all expertly arranged with no wait times or glitches anywhere. We here delighted with everything. I only have one criticism and it had nothing to do with Sharon's service.... the food on the Island Princess in the dining room was at best OK. Have taken several cruises on Celebrity and found the dining staff and the dining room food excellent. The princess staff, while nice, were slow, inattentive ( all three nights I had to ask for both the liquor and dessert menus') and the food, while not actually bad was just uninspired. I will definitely look to book future trips with Sharon and want to thank her for bringing this great little package to our attention and then making all the arrangements so we could relax and enjoy.

Sharon handled all the details of our Princess cruise with her usual efficiency and wonderful eye for details. From the beginning of the reservation process until we departed, Sharon's experience and good sense were evident every step of the way. She answered all my questions immediately and made excellent suggestions to keep our needs and priorities in focus. "'ve relied on Sharon for numerous trips in the past and will continue to do so. Many, many thanks, Sharon

Paris, Burgundy & Provence River Boat Cruise

By: Lindas

Reviewed on: 19 Sep 2016

This Viking trip was just great. The rep was there to pick us up at the Airport even though we had a 21/2 hour wait to get through customs at the CDG Airport. All the hotel's were very nice and always good instructions of where to meet, etc. The tours were interesting. We have been on Viking before, but the new long ships are so nice. Our travel agent here, Sharon Johnson, was as usual, very good to deal with. We live in the area, but the other 2 couples live out of town and she did it all for us. She arranged all our flights, also a side trip in Paris, etc. Once again a big Thank you to Viking and also to Sharon Johnson.

Sharon did a great job of organizing our trip to Cuba. Seamless connections to get there and back. Things were strange in Cuba as Fidel Castro died on the day we left but would like to go back one day when things are more normal and will use Sharon to get me there.

Once again Sharon organized all the details of a complicated trip to Italy. We were based in Rome and took day trips to Venice, Florence and Pompeii. From the selection of a hotel to tour companies, Sharon's picks were terrific. Sharon has a wonderful eye for detail and listens to clients' needs and wishes. You can't go wrong with Sharon and she will continue to arrange trips for us as long as we can travel.
