About Us:

Who We Are:

We’re an independent, licensed and registered travel agency, located in Toronto, Canada – where we’ve been since 1976. 

Beyond that, we are travellers. We’ve been to all seven continents, seen awe-inspiring sights, met some incredible people, enjoyed new tastes, and visited some extraordinary places along the way. Nothing makes us happier than making sure our clients have a truly exceptional vacation.

What We Do:

We plan vacations for you by taking the time to listen to your interests and wishes.  

You tell us as much as you can about what you’d like to do, where you’d like to go, your availability and budget. Then, using our expertise and experience, we do the research and provide you with some options and ideas. Once you’re happy, we make the booking for you.


How We Go About It:

Black-browed Albatross Colony, Falklands

We’re aware that travel can negatively impact the places we visit, so we consciously choose suppliers with active environmental and or community initiatives. 

Our extensive international network of quality, responsible local suppliers are the best at what they do. We know many of them personally and have used their services ourselves.
