My passion for travel has taken me to many exciting, exotic and enchanting places around the world. Nothing brings me greater joy and satisfaction than sharing the incredible "Hidden Gems" that we have discovered in our travels around the world with my clients.
I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and I enjoy sharing my favourite places 'off the beaten path' with my clients. My specialty is planning custom tours to these "Hidden Gems" of the world. My husband and I have travelled to Europe over 20 times, which includes a number of extremely popular custom tours that we have had the pleasure of escorting.
There is a special place in my heart for Italy that has drawn me back year after year for over 20 years. The Italian people are always so warm and welcoming, the food is incredible, the scenery spectacular, and of course there is always a new "Hidden Gem" to discover. I am currently planning a tour of Italy which I will escort in September 2014.
I also have planned custom tours to Austria, Slovenia & Croatia, where I chartered a yacht for a fabulous one week cruise of the Dalmatian Islands for a wonderful group of 28 passengers. This was definitely one of the highlights of our many travels around the world.
Our travels have also taken us to many other exotic places including Fiji, Vietnam, Cambodia and Hong Kong.
In May, 2013 we spent five days in the amazing city of Istanbul before escorting a group on a cruise from Istanbul to Rome. I arranged unique shore excursions or custom tours to explore each of our stops in the Greek Islands, Sicily, Sardinia and the west coast of Italy. Following the cruise we spent 10 days discovering some of the Hidden Gems of Sicily.
We had the pleasure of planning and spending time in Greece with friends and family for our oldest son and daughter-in-law's wedding on the beautiful island of Santorini. Our daughter and son-in-law also chose to have a destination wedding in gorgeous Wailea, Maui, our favourite place to go for a relaxing vacation.
I will be escorting a group on a Viking River Cruise in May, 2014. This "Grand European" cruise will take us into the heart of some of the most historic and picturesque towns of Europe.
In February 2015, we will escort an East Africa Safari Tour of Kenya & Tanzania, followed by a beach vacation in a brand new 5 star resort in Zanzibar.
I have been sharing my travel experiences and planning travel since 1994 when I completed the travel agent course at Camosun College in Victoria.
Please contact me for any of your travel requirements. I'd love to help you plan your next cruise, your dream vacation, a custom tour for you and your friends, or to have you join us on one of our "Hidden Gems" tours.
