Let's get together and plan your next trip!

Over the last 25+ years, I have had the wonderful pleasure in assisting many clients with their trip planning, and often know my client’s destinations like the back of my hand. My expertise has allowed me the opportunity to provide great personalized recommendations that I know they will love.

From All Inclusive Vacations, to Group Travel, Family Travel, Honeymoons & Destination Weddings, or a Traditional Ocean Cruise or Riverboat Cruise, it gives me great joy to know that my clients trust in me, return back year after year to use my services, and then refer me to their Family and Friends.

From the very beginning of the planning stages, I make myself available for clients until they arrive back home. I am always enthusiastic to hear about their trip and to learn about their experiences so that I can find ways to improve my service to them.

My first and foremost priority is to provide my clients with a worry free travel experience through outstanding service, relevant expertise, and exceptional value!

Our Honeymoon was Beautiful, Thank You!

Reviewed By Courtney - Wainfleet, Ontario | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Barb helped us book our honeymoon. She was very patient and answered all our questions. She sent us several resorts that she felt would be a good fit for us. We chose the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Blue which is such a beautiful resort. We enjoyed our honeymoon and wouldn't hesitate to call on Barb again to book us another trip. Thank you!

Trip of a Lifetime!

Reviewed By Graham - Fort Erie, Ontario | Traveled to Europe
Barb helped us plan an awesome Mediterranean Cruise for myself and 3 friends. None of us had ever been to Europe before and we were a little intimidated. She even hired a private Limousine to pick us up and take us to the airport. We did run into a snag at the airport when we missed our initial flight from Toronto. Our tickets had our departing and connecting airline reversed, but with her guidance and experience, she quickly found us 4 seats on another flight so we wouldn't miss our cruise departure in Barcelona. Thank god we use her services! She worked directly with the cruise line while we were sailing to have them reimburse the extra cost of our flights. She assured us to leave our worries behind and continue on and enjoy the trip, and that everything would be taken care of. She made this a trip of a lifetime for us. Venice and Rome will never be the same, and we can hardly wait to take another trip!

The Best!

Reviewed By Linda - Wainfleet | Traveled to Huatulco ~ Oaxaca ~ Mexico
Barb is an amazing agent! She covered absolutely everything when we booked our trip to Huatulco, Mexico. She also booked our last trip as well with the same understanding, patience, and knowledge. Barb is accessible 24/7 even while on your trip. If you have a problem with anything, and that's an amazing bonus to have when you're away! She truly knows her stuff! She also recommends the best places based on your needs and budget. Whatever it is she has the info or can get it for you. I wouldn't book with anyone else now! Barb is then BEST!!

We Had A Wonderful Trip

Reviewed By Dot - Hamilton, Ontario | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We were referred to Barb from a friend. She was very nice and handled all our requests with nothing but professionalism. She matched our needs and recommended us to a beautiful resort. The grounds and resort where immaculately cared for. Our room was lavish and spotless and our Butler was always available and attentive without being obtrusive. We had an absolutely wonderful time and Barb went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and special, she even had welcome gifts sent to our suite with a lovely card. Barb also contacted the resort to have our butler take extra good care of us. Barb did not disappoint and we highly recommend that others use her service.

Reviewed By Bernice - Oakville, Ontario | Traveled to Hawaii ~ USA
We had Barb book our trip to Hawaii, and we all had a fabulous time. There were four of us that went so we got 2 rooms. We spent a couple of weeks there and hopped from island to island. We had tickets for the Polynesian Cultural Center and we are so glad we went, it was fantastic! Maui was breathtaking, and the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was really something to see. We will definitely be calling on Barb again for another trip soon.

Barb was so easy to work with, she answered all my questions and returned my calls whenever I needed her.

Best Trip of our Lives!

Reviewed By Brian - Niagara, Ontario | Traveled to Switzerland ~ Europe
We just returned from a fantastic Riverboat Cruise arranged by Barb. It was just wonderful! She thought of all the little details and everything was arranged and handled perfectly. From the moment we arrived at the airport in Switzerland, with a man standing there holding a sign with our names on it, to the seamless transfers and the comfortable accommodations in our suite, we could not have asked for anything more. The service with Amawaterways was superb and the cuisine was excellent. Each day the chefs prepared tasty local dishes and the local wines were top notch! The escorted tours were even more than met our expectations. This was our first time on a riverboat cruise and we will certainly be making arrangements to use Barb's services again, Thank you for a fabulous and most memorable trip!

Unforgettable Vacation!

Reviewed By Tara - Fort Erie, Ontario | Traveled to Las Vegas ~ Nevada ~ USA
I am writing today because I wanted to let you know what an amazing agent you have in Barb Hicks. In 2016 she helped my husband and I book our wedding and just a few weeks ago, she helped us plan a trip to Las Vegas. Both of these trips were everything we could have asked for and more. Barb did an amazing job taking care of everything and ensuring we had a spectacular time.

I find myself referring her to friends and family constantly because we were so pleased with her. Barb really pays attention to her clients and gets to know them so she can recommend an experience to suit your style. She really goes above and beyond for her clients and is truly passionate about her work and helping people to have an unforgettable vacation. She is wonderful, and we’re already discussing our next trip with her. Thank you for having such a dedicated agent.
