Once you're bitten by the travel bug you're bitten for life! Well have I been bitten! There are many places in this incredible world that I've had the privilege of travelling to, but the more places I travel to the more places I want to see.

The one place that I would not hesitate to return to is East Africa, there is something magical about being on safari in either Kenya or Tanzania. The raw power of the wildebeest on the run and the utter devastation of so many that did not make the crossing. Looking the zebra in their beautiful eyes or sitting peacefully as the elephants walk past. 

River Cruising is also something I could enjoy over and over. Having river cruised the Main, the Rhine and the Danube, I had the good fortune of also enjoying a Vietnam and Cambodia river cruise along the Mekong with a land tour in Hanoi and and over-night stay on a Junk boat on Ha Long Bay. What impressed me most, was the people.

They have lived through unspeakable atrocities in our lifetimes, but have smiles that light up the world. 

Every trip has special memories that I am able to treasure as they have each shape the person I am.

I could go on and on about a cruise from Norway up to Spitzbergen and the North Cape, or to Tallinn Estonia and St.Petersberg with the midnight sun, or even a land tour to Scotland and Ireland that leaves you wanting to return. 

Please let me help you find the experience you've been dreaming of as together we can make that happen.

Carole ensured that our trip was a wonderful experience.
Carole and her associates have arranged three trip for us and each one was well organized and thoroughly enjoyable, from the transportation to and from the locations, to the actual trip itself. I highly recommend Carole for all your travel needs.

Friendly, Responsive and Helpful
Carole has been on the forefront of coordinating our last four cruises and is looking after our next three. She has been a big help in finalizing certain details and adjustments to our agendas and purchased options. She is always willing to spend time with us discussing various options related to our future travel plans. In addition, in a couple of instances, after we reviewed details on the final invoice(s), she has been quick to rectify errors/omissions that we believed should be displayed on the invoice to make our trip more relaxing. After booking our last cruise, another couple with whom we associate, asked if they could accompany us on the same offering. They contacted Carole and she was able to arrange a similar package and, because they lived in her area of the city, she personally delivered most of the necessary documents on her way home. Overall we are certainly satisfied with the service provided by and are comfortable doing business with Carole in the future.

PERSONAL ATTENTION ALL THE WAY
We first met Carole at one of the cross-Canada info talks conducted by Scenic, so even before we made our decision, she was there to help us with suggestions, knowledge and experiences of river cruising. In addition to "knowing her stuff", Carole listened to our requirements and helped us through the booking process, which can be complicated if you have done this type of travel before. She also helped with additional bookings at either end of our trip and gave us lots of options to look at. As the arrangements progressed, Carole kept us informed and was always pleased to see us if we dropped in. She also welcomed the tour feed-back and was pleased to hear of our unbridled enthusiasm of our trip experiences!
