My Background

Born in Germany, I moved to Canada in 1986. I had a successful career arranging inbound tourism mostly from Germany. In 2002 I decided to branch out into the travel business and joined Blaney’s Travel which has since amalgamated with the Vision Travel Group.

I feel truly blessed to combine my love for rowing and music with my love of travel. I have accompanied adventurous groups of rowers to successful competitions on the Mosel, Rhine and Weser Rivers in Germany and the Charles in Boston. Renowned choral conductor Peter Dent has partnered with me in our popular Choral and Singing Tours to Cuba, Europe and New York.

Additionally, I specialize in Cruises and have sent many happy travelers aboard Holland America, Cunard, Oceania, Silverseas and Celebrity among others. I love to research individual vacations and have created fantastic holidays for clients to travel all over the world.

If you are curious about any of the above travel ideas or have some of your own, call me at 250 412 1883.

A car that we needed for the next 20 days was waiting for us in Germany and everything went smooth. She thought about every detail and it worked. Getting this all together was done in only 4 days!!!

Martina did a great job of organizing our trip. The only blips that occurred were created by Air Canada. Delayed flights, cancelled and re booked flights, causing a small panic in New York when we couldn't find our transfer agent. (Temporary only, we found someone in 15 minutes..) The number we had for HA wasn't correct, and I sure will have an alternate # in future! The trip itself was lovely, tours especially those in Canada, were super. Thanks for a lovely experience.

Casa Xola, Morelia, Michoacan, Mexico is a wonderful B&B in the heart of the city...and the proprietor, Arleigh does a great breakfast. The old colonial house is fabulous with interesting decor, comfortable beds and views from the roof garden are a delight. Morelia being a UNESCO Heritage sight, has so much to offer and there is always some exciting event happening. For those driving, there is in-house parking. For other travellers, buses and taxis are readily available. Restaurants are nearby, and the Central Square is just a short walk. This is one B&B that should not be missed.

Hotel room was ok- great shower, great kitchenette. Air conditioning to loud, open the window even louder.. My bed was not straight I rolled down, pillows were much to big. .Breakfast very generous and lovely.. My room mate was very adventures like me, we got along well.. The only thing that did not fit well with me, that we were not a group -- everybody did his own thing, I found it nerve recking at the airports I almost got lost , did not see anybody. Trip could have been 2 days longer. This was a big rush. I wonder, if we could do the whole thing more reasonable? Over all I loved the whole experience. Martina, you are a great organizer.

Great Travel agent, but would not fly Sunwing again unless there were no other options

By: Jimb


Reviewed on: 13 Dec 2015

Martina was great. Very knowledgable and very helpfull. The resort was as expected with no disappointments. Sunwing was a disappointment. Although we paid an extra fee for seat selection, advanced boarding etc,(a rather steep price all things considered), it was of little value. When it came time to load it can best be described as every man for himself. The seats were cramped and the movies terrible, and out luggage looked like it had been dragged to Cuba rather than in a safe secure luggage hatch. However, as noted, Martina was fantastic!

Martina Peladeau is a very reliable and helpful agent. She arranged and planned our trip to Jibacoa Villa, Cuba January 25 to February 08, 2016...with a stopover in Vancouver at the Accent Inn both going and returning. All in all the trip was fine...but have some issues with AirTransat...as to seating, etc. Also was dissapointed with the lack of wheelchairs needed by our group of four. Finally, we were able to obtain two...for the most needy. While in Cuba, we thoroughly enjoyed our singing time and accommodation, and meals, etc. There had been a "bug" so we hoped to avoid that, but in the end, some were stricken. On the second week, we boarded the Celestyal Cruise Liner for a tour through the Cuban Islands to Kingston, Jamaica. The accommodation aboard ship was comfortable with a view, and near an elevator...all very necessary for seniors. We enjoyed the entertainment, meals, and wonderful service of the crew. A pleasure to travel with.

Blissful Vacation

Gran Velas Riviera Nayarit was wonderful. They were especially helpful in letting us use the grounds for the afternoon before our flight. The hotel was only at 20% occupancy and there were many repair works going on, but this did not generally affect the experience. The transfers to and from the hotel were convenient and helped us to relax - thank you Martina! Part of the experience, for us, is the clean walkable beach, and the ability to swim in the ocean several times a day. We also went on one tour to San Sebastian, and had a very good tour guide named Ruby. The entire tour was very interesting. We also rented a car and drove to Sayulita, which was a good day trip. It was very convenient to have the car dropped right at the hotel door, and to be able to drop the car off with hotel staff when we returned late at night.

I enjoyed the trip. The musical experience was great and I would do it again. There were a few disappointments but all in all it was good. Peter is a good director and fulfilled my expectations. The only 2 mishaps were getting lost from the group (it was very crowded in the square) on the way to dinner on the second day and losing my wallet on the third day. Once I got over that I was able to enjoy the rest of the trip. I will be more careful next time.

Great trip with Musica Semper Viva

By: Lynda


Reviewed on: 26 Jul 2016

This was a fabulous trip, especially the Romania portion. The music, food, people, cities and countryside were all good, as were the accommodations. I am going to mention a couple of things that might be changed on the next tour. 1. We had very long bus rides, and although the first bus had a toilet, the second bus, which we had for the long hauls, did not have a useable toilet. I think that needs to change, because every pit stop loses 45 minutes of travel time. Most of these were at gas stations. 2. I think I would prefer the sacred music trips to the secular ones, because then we can sing in the churches. The acoustics in them are glorious, and it is good to be able to sing in historic settings. There were no people at some of the venues we were singing at on this trip. 3. There was a big waste of food with meals served on individual plates. I would recommend that platters be put out at each table, so that we only take what we need. 4. Singing in 6 languages was too much.

The trip went very well Martina. All flights on time, connections were good, flight attendants were excellent. Even my baggage went through without difficulty. However the aircraft, in particular the 767 ER's, were not completely clean. I realize that the turn-around times are tight, but the cabin floors were not as they should be. The food was, as expected, quite terrible. But the friendliness and work ethics of the attendants made up for it once the flight was underway. The 787 was perfect however. That one I'd fly on again anytime! Thanks for everything Martina. See you soon regarding the Reno trip! Rhys

Good ideas and suggestions

By: Betty21


Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2016

On the whole I recommend Martina because she has access to good sites and comes up with appropriate suggestions for hotels, etc. She is generous with her time, and gets back to you in a timely manner. However, her lack of attention to detail bothered me somewhat as I like to see accurate information in front of me when I'm looking at an invoice, for instance. Martina is cheerful and very pleasant to deal with by phone or in person. At times, though, when in email contact, she seemed to misunderstand my requests so I had to be careful not to give a lot of details; to keep the content fairly simple. Perhaps she is too rushed and needs to take a breath before responding.

Hidden Italy walking tour. The accommodations and food were great and the luggage was safely transported. The walks were more strenuous than we expected and the directions not always clear. Having to retrace your steps and search for markers really adds to the kilometres . It was 30 & degrees every day and I suffered a bit of heat stroke so managed only 2 of the 5 walking days. The other 3 walked every day but said it was more like army training than a pleasant walk. Having said that, we all had a good time. Florence apartments . They were really nice. Modern and centrally located. We had an easy walk everywhere we wanted to go. A great recommendation! Florence is fabulous with so much to see and do. We were busy every day. Toured the museums and churches, had a boat ride on the Arno and took a day trip to Rome. The guys went to Modena one day to visit the car museums - Ferrari, etc. One day we Drove Fiat 500 cars around the countryside. Guys loved it.

If you want to have a taste of India this is by far the best way to see all the important historical sites, enjoy sumptuous meals and experience Indian culture even in very small, self-sufficient villages. It's a very active tour with several events every day. They really pull out all the stops and you cannot but feel that you're getting your money's worth! My only complaints are that they don't offer last minute upgrading to larger cabins (all the upgraded cabins were free during our entire journey!) and that they made no accommodation for the fact that we were the oldest passengers and were thoughtlessly placed in the last of 23 cars so it was a very long and tedious walk between our cabin and the dining rooms. If you have walking issues you should make it known in advance.

Very friendly and knowledgeable. A bit hasty and sometimes does not review things for accuracy.

Martina provided professional and timely help in securing flights and accommodation for a trip that had two stages. I benefited by using Martina's assistance as there was an upgrade to the hotel room, resort credit and free breakfast. I would without hesitation recommend Martina to those looking for travel advice and booking services.
