7 Continents & 65 Countries of Travel Experience

I have been in the travel industry for 21 years. For my first decade, I worked as a Travel Consultant specializing in small group adventure travel. Then I shifted gears and for the next seven I was a Sales Manager for G Adventures and then Trafalgar. in 2014 Alison Broughton and I opened up our own agency, The Travel Desk, now located in Spruce Grove AB and have been going strong ever since.

I love creating the perfect itinerary for my clients. I have a passion for adventure travel and customized tours, and love doing research on destinations whether familiar to me, or new. The world changes constantly and knowing the right tour operator and/or right destination is important. I feel it makes me a better agent to know where to find the best resources to share with my clients.

Being able to maximize your vacation and see all of the sites (and more) economically is what I strive to find for my clients. Finding the right tour operator, whether luxury travel or backpacking styled, is something I love to do by asking what is important to you.  I also recognize that some clients prefer to travel privately and again am delighted to accommodate them, especially in destinations such as Europe, East Africa and South America.

I strongly believe in experiencing different ways to travel to help service my clients and understand what product works best. I have traveled to all seven continents and 65 countries to date; and have no intention on stopping anytime soon!

A few of my favourite moments I have had while traveling:

  • Kayaking in the Northwest Passage in Canada and Greenland
  • Truly recognizing what pure silence sounds like in Antarctica
  • strolling cobblestone streets and having great coffee in over 20 countries in Europe
  • Snorkeling with Reef sharks and sting rays in Belize
  • Walking through the lost city of Machu Picchu in Peru
  • Sailing around the Galapagos Islands and rolling in the sand with sea lions in Ecuador.
  • Trekking through Patagonia in Argentina and Chile & learning all about the Moai Heads in Easter Island.
  • Trekking for 12 days to/from Base Camp, Mt. Everest in Nepal
  • Exploring the wonder and beauty of Australia  & New Zealand
  • Animal safaris never get old in my world! Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda
  • Standing 3 feet from a Mountain Gorilla while we gaze into each others eyes in Rwanda
  • Sitting in my private over the water bungalow in Bora Bora, French Polynesia and crying from pure joy.

I'd love to help you plan your next trip, whether it be local or exotic, please let me share my experience as an agent, and a traveller with you!

Ned Knows Skydivers!

As a world traveling skydiver, Ned Ambrus knows EXACTLY the type of coverage a guy like me needs. She has been my insurance professional for many years, and I feel confident with the products she supplies for me. Fortunately, I have never required them yet, and hope that I never do! But I would be a fool if I left home without the coverage, considering the sport I engage in, and the countries of the world I travel to to do so!

Ned talks the talk and walks the walk

Reviewed By Cathy McM - Calgary, Alberta, Canada | Traveled to Africa
Where to start. Ned has been amazing for all my adventure tours. From customizing my first big adventure to Kenya, Tanzania and Egypt, to stressing out with me via long distance when I missed a connecting flight on my way to the Antarctic and almost (literally) missing the boat. Ned is so, so open to sharing her vast experience, giving tidbits on hidden gems she has stumbled upon on her own adventures. If there's a place you are thinking of going, this warm and caring lady has probably been there! But be careful what you say, as inadvertently joking about her putting a tour together came true a few months later and I was off, with her and 6 other amazing ladies to visit the Mountain Gorillas in Uganda and Rwanda. She is my go to for every destination trip. Hands down.

Reviewed By Alaine - Pokolbin, New South Wales | Traveled to Antarctica
Ned's communication is excellent, and she is thorough with all the details. I cannot recommend her highly enough and she is certainly my preferred travel agent in all holiday bookings.

When my flight got cancelled in Belize, leaving me stranded, one email to Ned got an immediate reply so I got to rest by the pool while Ned confirmed new flight details, postponed a tour we had planned for the following day, and re-scheduled our airport transfer from that day to the next.

On another occasion, when a pre-booked tour failed to live up to expectations, Ned negotiated on our behalf with the local agent and got us a refund.

Ned has now booked a month long trip to Antarctica for myself and three friends, carefully planning all the details and patiently answering all our questions. Without a doubt, Ned is the best travel agent I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I will never use another travel agent again!!

Ned was fantastic to deal with! As a usual solo traveler I had some trepidations about joining a tour but Ned was able to answer all my questions and suggested the perfect type of trip with a tour company. Paperwork was processed in a timely and efficient manner. Ned booked the flights with extra consideration to layover time and ease of connections.

The trip (Great Italian Cities through Trafalgar) was everything I hoped it would be. I went in before the tour started and Ned worked it out so I was able to stay at the same Rome hotel for those extra days (not moving hotels was a definite bonus).

I returned to Ned for booking on a second tour and the experience was also amazing. Her attention to detail is second to none. I highly recommend Ned Ambrus for your travel needs.

Tons of front end work done to provide various travel options in order to satisfy the finicky schedule of the client (me).

Most amazing travel agent!

Reviewed By Chris and Michelle - Calmar Alberta | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Working with Ned was amazing! My wife and I were new to international travel and Ned's experience and guidance was so helpful, and put any fears we may of had to rest. She made the planning stage so exciting for us, as we would talk about cities or countries we wanted to visit she would give us personal stories about the destination, even suggesting restaurants in the area. Once everything was finalized she didn't just mail us our information/vouchers, she went next level service. Knowing we were new to travel and close by she met with us in person to go over all the itinerary one more time, explaining everything again and answering any last minute questions.
With all that said I think one of the coolest things about working with Ned was her excitement about our trip, and how she was genuinely excited for us. We have since booked two more trips with Ned and would use no one else.
Thanks Ned

Although I've yet to take the actual trip that I booked with Ned (heading out in January) - she was very helpful in the pre-sales stage and since I had a few people booking with us, it was very helpful to have a central contact to manage the whole process. Thanks Ned!

Best trip ever!

Reviewed By Michelle - Edmonton, alberta | Traveled to Houston ~ Texas ~ USA
Our experience with Ned was great. She helped us plan our vacation details with such ease. We were traveling with special needs people so we require additional planning to ensure proper accommodations for those needs. She had great knowledge when it came to us picking a cruise line and accommodations. Even after we got home and gave her a summary of our experiences she was able to obtain a bit of a refund for our hotel accommodations that turned out to be less than ideal. I would recommend Ned to help plan all your travel needs and certainly will use her services again in the future!

Archeaological Paradise

Reviewed By BW - Calgary | Traveled to Greece ~ Europe
Ned has been in the travel industry for many many years and has been my travel agent for a number of them. She is well traveled, giving her hands on insight and experience in various countries and what they have to offer. She knows her "stuff". Through the years of assisting me with my travel arrangements, she has developed an understanding of my interests, concerns, needs and knows my style of travel. Based upon her knowledge of me, she can recommend certain tours and tour operators that would be best suited for me. If she doesn't know the answer to a question, she will do the research and find out. I have been extremely happy with her services through the years and will continue to enlist her services for any future travel plans I have. Thank you Ned!

Ned did en excellent job arranging our Alaska cruise. Even on her days off she would respond to our questions. We had no idea what to expect from a cruise since this was our first ever. And with her advice we were able to make the choice that fit us.
Thanks Ned for being always cheerful and for your good service. We will recommend you to our friends.
