What a better way to spend your leisure time, than travelling!

Recreation is an activity of leisure, leisure being discretionary time. The "need to do something for recreation" is an essential element of human biology and psychology. Wikipedia 

My passion is helping people.  My goal is to help people pursue their leisure interests through individual, group and luxury travel. 

I have significant experience in coordinating, researching, planning tours and local, national and international events. I have interacted with all ages, to help make leisure and recreation enjoyable for individual and groups.  

After years of working in recreation and volunteer management, becoming a travel consultant and business owner became the next chapter in my life. With my degree in Recreation and my passion to help people, I felt it was a natural fit to become a travel consultant/business owner.  I was always the coordinator, the researcher and the planner. My friends and family would always ask me to look after the plans. 

Travel has always been an interest to me. I have traveled to Europe, United States, Mexico, Jamaica and all across Canada. I love experiencing other cultures, the food, the architecture, the language, the customs and most of all rejuvenating! Perhaps I was born with a fascination of other cultures because of my heritage. My family is originally from Europe, specifically my mom is from Amsterdam and my Dad from Rotterdam, Netherlands. I would like to explore more of Europe in the future to learn about other cultures.  

I would like to help you plan your individual, group or luxury experience, whether it is at an all-inclusive resort, a luxury river boat cruise, an ocean cruise, voluntourism (a trip to combine volunteering and travel) or a specific tour you would like me to design/source for you. I can assist with planning groups, family, corporate or individual travel needs.

Please contact me with all your travel needs and I would be happy to help you.

Best Cruise by Far
Yvonne did an amazing job of organizing this trip. There have been several challenges due to covid and she handled them very confidently and professionally. I have no hesitation in recommending Yvonne to anyone in need of a professional travel agent.
From planning to the actual cruise itself, Yvonne provided good advise and was very proactive in dealing with the numerous challenges.

Unparalleled Service!
I can't speak highly enough about the quality of service Yvonne provided. We have been searching for years for a good travel agent, and Yvonne's professionalism, talent, and work ethic went above-and-beyond.
During an unexpected Omicron quarantine, Yvonne worked the back channels to sort out my reimbursement and return flights, when a cruise representative was unreachable. I don't think I've ever seen such dedicated customer care as Yvonne provided to me.
The real test of customer service is what it's like when things go wrong. My experience with travel agents in the past has been limited to someone who books you a ticket, and nothing more. Yvonne, on the other hand, was committed to the success of our entire trip. As far as I'm concerned, she has set the bar.
I realize this sounds like hyperbole, but I mean it 100%: If you're lucky enough for Yvonne to take you on as your travel agent, don't pass up that opportunity. We'll never use anyone else.

Wonderful Experience!
Yvonne is an extremely knowledgeable travel agent. She gave all her time and energy into planning our trip including airfare, resorts, and excursions. Every aspect of our trip was thoroughly thought out. We had an amazing time in Saint Lucia! Highly recommend using Yvonne for any travel needs!

Our most memorable trip EVER!!
Yvonne was very quick to respond to queries throughout the planning process.

When we ran into issues at the airport, she worked tirelessly to get on us on the next available flight. We had important committments to attend to at home and were able to make them due to Yvonne's efforts.

When things go wrong
It was my first time using a travel agent. But it won't be my last. Yvonne was so helpful in helping us book a complicated family booking just as Covid restrictions were changing. She provided so much information about travel restrictions, forms and documentation to have. Thankfully she encouraged us to get medical travel insurance as one of our party got quite sick during the trip. Yvonne was available to help support us during that time and provide some direction. This was not only helpful but also comforting trying to navigate healthcare in a primarily Spanish speaking country. Having her involved also helped us negotiate with the resort regarding compensation. I would highly recommend Yvonne.
