Group, Custom Tour & Leisure Travel Expert

I have the best job in the world!   While most travel agencies focus their efforts on the individual vacation experience, Ah Weh Vacations is unique in that I've built a thriving business in the group market focusing on. I specialize in selecting, planning, marketing, administering groups of all types and sizes.   My commitment is to ensure group travelers receive courteous service and support, expert advice and the best values available

Today, we have more options than ever for exploring the world with, friends, clients and our loved ones in style! 

I started traveling at an early age, and I quickly began preparing complex vacations on my own. It became my main passion, and I loved the thrill of searching through the options and then watching it all come together in the end. After decades of traveling, I created my own travel agency where I could directly help others experience the trip of a lifetime.

I can book intimate trips for two along with massive tours for groups of over 50 people. I work with everyone from individuals to corporate groups, and I book each trip as if it were my own by finding the best extras and preparing the most optimized routes. Every itinerary that I create is completely personalized to give you the best experience possible.

I’ve created all types of vacations including:

  • All-inclusive getaways
  • Luxury cruises
  • Culinary tours
  • Wellness retreats
  • High-octane adventures
  • And more!

Some interesting recent bookings include worldwide tours of comic conventions experience groups, wine and cooking tours in Europe and beyond, plus adventure packages in stunning Peru and Costa Rica. I love learning about my client’s interests and incorporating them into the itinerary, and I research everything to ensure you have a stress-free and endlessly exciting experience. Whether you're an individual looking for an unforgettable adventure or the leader of a group embarking on a personalized trek, I'm ready to make your trip the best it can be! 

My favorite destination is Jamaica, and my travel agency is named in honor of this amazing destination, Ah Weh Vacations,  is the local language meaning “to where?” I’m always wondering where to go next, and I want to encourage my clients to see the world without limits!

I will research everything for you and take care of all of the paperwork so you can simply pack, arrive, and enjoy your vacation. I simplify everything so you never have to get overwhelmed by all of the options, and with my expert assistance, your trip will be planned around your interests and expectations.

I'm a member of the professional travel consultant association Nexion Canada, as well as, the Association of Canadian Travel Agents, and this allows me the opportunity to be on the cutting edge, of the latest possibilities in traveling and booking. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta, and I couldn't be happier with my role as a travel agent. With years of experience in the industry plus a true love for all-things travel, I'm ready to create your next incredible vacation today!

Family vacation

Reviewed By Ang G - Calgary | Traveled to
Laurie was instrumental in planning our family Discney Cruise. 4 of us were in Alberta and 4 in Ontario. Putting the two together was great. Our cabins were linked. We had dinner together and she gave us many tips on one if our port stops. With her expertise she made our vacation great as the families only get together every 5 or 6 years. Job well done
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

A real gem

Reviewed By Denise W - Calgary | Traveled to
Having had experience with Laurie Ross with my travel plans over the last couple of years I feel the need to share my gem. I talk little about what I don't like and talk a lot about what I do. Laurie has been so helpful and knowledgable about each trip I have booked. In the era of the Internet she has been a breath of fresh air and I would not only use her to book my trips, I would hire her if I were to own a business. Enjoy

Laurie , you made it so simple for all of us. Thank you for your patience with me. I never felt like I was a bother even though I’m sure I was. You just made me feel like nothing was a problem with me contacting you all the time.

Laurie reminded me the benefits of using a good travel agent!

Reviewed By Heather G - Abbotsford BC | Traveled to
The last time I used a travel agent, I was in my early 20's. I was facing an amazing opportunity and challenge as I was heading off to India for an adventure. In the last almost 2 decades, I have relied solely on the internet for travel booking, mostly for work. The tech available in our homes has made booking flight tickets extremely easy and convenient and with my usage, travel agents seemed obsolete. I am a capable professional woman, so getting myself from A to B is fairly uncomplicated. Recently, I decided to take some time for myself and book a cruise vacation…while working an 80-hour work week…which is precisely why I needed to have a vacation. My internet searches were nothing short of disappointing. The vacation I was searching for began to look more laborious and less relaxing. If I had booked my own trip, I would have found myself doing extensive traveling just to get to and from the vacation. Frankly, I would have not been able to go on vacation at all, given the time restraints. This is when I turned to Laurie. I've known her for years and have trusted her with my business transactions for many of them. I tasked her with finding me a new adventure. All I had to do was provide her with a list of fairly difficult parameters and she came up with the vacation that I had spent almost 2 weeks trying to create. Laurie made my vacation a reality and reminded me of the benefits of a great travel agent. Worry-free effortless booking. Travel discounts. She took care of the small details, like pre-paid gratuities. She was enthusiastic about booking this trip for me. She provided personal service and booked the trip the same way she would have done for herself! A vacation from vacation booking!

looking into different travel spots

Reviewed By Laurie - Calgary | Traveled to
I travel with family and Laurie has been so helpful and very quick at getting back to me with answers to questions . It is not always easy when making trip plans that please many people on the same trip but Laurie goes above and beyond to help. I have not booked with Laurie yet but will when it works out and we are not booking with points. She is very pleasant young lady and I look forward to booking with her

Cruisin

Reviewed By Sam - Bahamas | Traveled to
I recently went on my first cruise to the Bahamas last month. Laurie was knowledgeable and made helpful suggestions. She arranged everything. All I had to do was relax and enjoy the smooth sailing. Laurie also coordinated a group of girls for a wine tour get-away in San Fran. She booked our flights, hotels and wine tours and left the fun part of traveling to us. Thank you Laurie.

She made vacation a dream come true!!

Reviewed By Kim - Toms River, NJ | Traveled to
I recently went on our first vacation to St.Lucia, to anywhere really! We were first time international travelers and Laurie made everything so simple. Every anxiety was quickly taken away. Laurie made sure every detail big and small were taken care of. Every question even the ones that were probably obvious she answered with the utmost care. I definitely would recommend her and will use her again in the future. Thanks for everything Laurie!!!
