Natasha was wonderful to work with. Her communications, suggestions and arrangements could not have been better. I loved that she gave us well defined options with time lines and prices. Excellent service. The wine pairing dinner in Franshook was the best, incredible meal we have ever had. Thank you so much--I will plan to contact Natasha again.

Very helpful and efficient as travel agents should be but the topper is that she puts up with a lot of silly questions, etc. and does her best to get you informed.

Polar Bear Trip

By: Travel42

Reviewed on: 10 Nov 2013

Natasha listened carefully to what we wanted in a trip and then made recommendations. (Too often travel agents have their own agenda.) She responded quickly to any questions we had. Our trip was through Arctic Kingdom to a camp north of Churchill. The accommodations were basic but that was what we expected. Both the trip leader and the photographer guide were very knowledgeable. Meals were simple but tasty. We felt confident in the Inuit guides. Small group size was wonderful.

Natasha is very professional and she has quite a bit of travel experience to draw on when we want to arrange our trips. She is prompt to respond and always has lots of suggestions. She pays attention to detail and supports us while we travel if the need arises. I enjoy dealing with her and have been doing so for a few years now. I trust her judgment and like how she handles things.

Tauck Classic Safari ---FABULOUS

Thanks to Natasha we had a wonderful trip with absolutely no hitches. The flights were exactly when we needed them and she went the extra mile by keeping in contact with the hotel in Amsterdam to remind them that our "late" check-in was at 6:00 A.M. This is the fourth trip that Natasha has arranged for me and I can never thank her enough for all the work she did on each to make it stress free and the adventure wonderful

Our trip was to China through the tour group China Star. First time going on a group land tour. It was alright-prefer private tours as you get to see more and get into better places. This was suggested by Natasha, but we wanted to go on a smaller budget for this trip. Natasha still covered off all elements of our trip planning as she would have if it had been an expensive private tour.

Our trip to peru that was organized by Natasha along with metropolitan touring was fabulous. Natasha really listened to what we liked & wished to explore. Along with her added suggestions our itinerary was perfect. Not too long in length of time and I felt I saw everything I wished to - the trip was not cut short. All hotels were great! Metropolitan touring was very professional and always reliable at each destination. The tour guides were not only extremely knowledgable but also really passionate about their country and what they do as a career. They were also very genuine and caring people. They gave us a lot of extra tips & tricks for ease of travel & if we were not with them great suggestions for local cuisine. It was nice to have all our tickets pre-purchased & no standing in lines. All in all my trip to peru is one I will remember with a lot if positive thoughts!

Awesome Travel Adviser and agent

By: grtcalgary

Natasha is a highly competent and enthusiastic travel agent/adviser. We have used Natasha as our sole source for Travel over the last several years and she is a delight to work with. I would not hesitate to recommend Natasha's travel services or that of Vision 2000 to anyone. We have just only returned from a vacation in China, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia and Natasha was the sole travel agent who made all the arrangements and we could not be happier with he service.

Arizona Family Adventure


Reviewed on: 29 Mar 2015

Natasha did a great time helping us to plan a short spring-break adventure to Carefree, Arizona (near Phoenix). She gave great advice and helped us to book flights, car service, hotels and excursions. She met with us before planning the trip to discuss the likes/dislikes of each of our family members. Everything Natasha was involved in went without a hitch. We especially enjoyed the hot air ballooning and astronomy tours that she helped arrange. I'd definitely recommend her for families looking for someone to help plan a trip that will appeal to mom, dad and the teenagers!

Another great trip planned for us by Natasha. This time she took on the task of coordinating a mini-reunion for three generations of our family.

Cinque Terre and Tuscany

We were very satisfied with the entire trip. Everything went well, including the flight and Natasha's booking arrangements. The Backroads tour leaders did a fabulous job of making sure we all enjoyed the hikes even though our ability levels differed. We enjoyed the hotels and the many different locations where we had the four course evening meals. Julie, our leader, did an outstanding job of preparing and serving our picnic lunch on one of our hikes. In summary, it was a great trip and a wonderful opportunity to see this part of Italy.

Natasha was referred to me my a good friend who has worked with her many times and it was a wonderful recommendation. She is an excellent professional with great insight and expertise. I will definitely work with her again - we are already planning another trip this Christmas. My note to her is below when I returned: Natasha, back from vacation and it was a tremendous holiday! Thank you so much for organizing it. I ended up moving a couple of days later into the best rooms available at only an extra $20 dollars a night and they did give me vip treatment and were very gentle and lovely with me. I will definitely be going back next year (if not sooner) and taking my Mom as I know she would love love it. Thank you for everything – the only hard thing was the long travel days – but next time perhaps I’ll book for 10 days and give myself more time to recover before returning to work.

Dropped the Ball

By: WJCalgary

Reviewed on: 30 May 2016

Met with Natasha 6 months before our departure for a 5 week trip to S America (Galapagos, hiking Colca Canyon & Machu Picchu, the cities of Quito, Arequipa, Cusco & Lima & visiting the Amazon). We are all still puzzled about what went wrong as the planning process was extremely painful. Natasha successfully booked a great boat in the Galapagos for a reasonable price, (approximately half the cost of her initial suggestion) and identified good international flights. The rest of the planning was a disaster of inattention to details, ignoring our requests and delayed deliverables. There seemed to be a lack of interest when it was clear we did not want a 5 star fully guided tour even though we initially discussed this. Took 2.5 months to get a tentative itinerary, with many inaccuracies. We finally had to abandon planning with her when she was not able to get hiking permits to Machu Picchu 2 mons before our departure. Thankfully, a Peruvian agent saved our trip & obtained the permits!

Natasha is my travel angel! She always goes out of her way to ensure that my trips are done the way I want them. I won't even think of going somewhere without her guidance as she has great contacts and knows what will make my journeys more enjoyable. Over the years she has come to know what I look for in a trip so her input is valuable. As a solo traveller that is very important as she advises me of the places that she feels I should, or should not, have on my bucket list.

I call Natasha my "Travel Angel" as she is always on top of everything regarding any of my trips. This last Windstar cruise was a real hassle due to the need to change the itinerary, the ship and all my flights because of the hurricanes. She handled all issues as if it was nothing while I was really wondering if I should just cancel the trip but she got me through it all and the trip was fabulous. I just gave her another challenge this week as I am now booked for a trip to India and Nepal! That means that she has three trips to deal with for me in the next year!! My Angel!!!!!
