Luxury Cruise and European Destination Specialist

Why do we travel?


Whether travelling with family, friends, or on a solo adventure, memories of your adventures, will stay with you throughout your life, as a fond recollection of moments that you can cherish.

From enjoying local wines and fresh cheeses at an agriturismo in the rolling hills of Tuscany, to hiking the rugged Amalfi Coast, sailing through a remote Norwegian Fjord, relaxing on a pristine white sand beach, enjoying a “unique” local delicacy at a local bistro, or immersing yourself in a fascinating new culture, those are a few small snapshots of many memories you can encounter on your next vacation getaway.

I became a travel consultant in 2001, and have been fascinated with travelling my entire life, and I enjoy sharing my passion for travel with all of my clients. Throughout my travels, I have had a chance to travel and visit many wonderful places, such as:

  • Iceland
  • Norwegian Fjords and North Cape of Norway
  • Alaska
  • Rocky Mountaineer Luxury Rail Trip in British Columbia/Alberta-
  • The Mediterranean (Italy (Rome, Tuscany, Venice, Naples, Amalfi Coast), Greece, Croatia, French Riviera, Spain, (Barcelona, Madrid, Granada), Turkey (Istanbul, Ephesus),
  • The Baltic (Stockholm, St. Petersburg Russia, Copenhagen Denmark, Tallinn Estonia)-Chamonix and Mont Blanc Alps Region of France/Italy-Amsterdam Netherlands, Bruges Belgium-Bavaria Germany (Munich, Neuschwanstein Castle, Nuremburg, Regensburg)
  • Cruising in the Caribbean
I am an honors graduate of Sheridan College ‘s Travel and Tourism program, and am a certified CTC (Certified Travel Counsellor) from the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies. One of my specialties is luxury and river cruising, and I hold an ACC (Accredited Cruise Counsellor) designation from the Cruise Lines international Association.
The most important lesson I’ve learned is to provide excellent “value” to all of my current clientele.  Value doesn’t always mean getting the lowest possible rock bottom price on a trip, but means finding the right holiday choice for you, in the right resort, cruise line, villa or tour, while making sure to advise you on possible optional enhancements, to help make your holiday even more special. I will be there from start to finish on your trip, to make sure your trip runs smoothly, and will be in your corner, as we work for you, not the airlines, cruise lines or hotel companies. In addition to working with you to find the perfect cruise or land holiday, I will use my knowledge and expertise to make your getaway a special one, from booking a private welcome transfer, assisting with dining reservations, creating custom tour experiences, and assisting with pre or post customized hotel stays.
Whatever your special future travel memory is, I will be happy to help make it become a reality.

A trusted travel advisor with 19 years experience

Enjoy the beauty of Iceland's many waterfalls.

For the past 19 years, I have been working to make our clients travel dreams come true.

With an expertise in luxury and contemporary cruising, I have also travelled throughout Europe for holidays for many years, as well as having first hand knowledge of Alaska and the Caribbean.

My favourite trips are nature based, and I enjoy visiting remote unspoiled places like Iceland, Norway, or Alaska.

Book with Ian for confidence and reliability
Ian is knowledgeable, thorough and efficient. I have booked my own 'tricky' itineraries through him and he expertly identified the best routes, timings and lay-overs. He can be counted on to be professional and helpful with any queries. He is quick to respond to emails and provides proper follow up in a timely manner. I always feel satisfied and confident that if Ian booked it, I'm going to be just fine!

Ian is excellent! One of my coworkers recommended him to us, and we are really satisfied with the service he provides us. I can just tell him what I have in mind, and he comes up with variations for us to choose from. He is patient and helpful in this process. Once we decide, he is thorough with the information he provides us. He gives us options for airfare, hotels, transfers etc. He knows what both my husband and I like, which is not always the same, so he provides us with choices that we can both be happy with. I have recommended him to others.
