Beautiful Budapest!
Beautiful Budapest!

People who love to travel have the world at their fingertips, but the options can be overwhelming. The Internet makes it easy to discover new destinations and explore unique itineraries, but on your own, it’s hard to find the best value based on your travel needs.  That's where I can help.

7 years ago, after realizing just how much I had learned on my many journeys, I realized that my adventure-loving, detail-driven personality would make me the perfect travel consultant.  

I had long enjoyed telling my friends and family members about my exciting vacations and giving them advice about their respective trips, but until this revelation occurred, I failed to realize that I could make a career by pursuing three of the things I love most: researching unique destinations, travelling to those destinations and then using my experience to help others.

So in 2012, I walked away from my 23-year corporate marketing career (with a major grocery retailer) to open up my very own travel agency.
I now specialize in helping travel clients find the best travel solutions for the greatest value. I can help sort through the information, narrow down the options and explain the trip details and pricing in a way that will allow the client to make the best and most informed decision.

The more advance planning that can be done, the fewer decisions will be required on the trip, the lower the risk of unexpected issues arising and the more relaxing and enjoyable the trip will be.

When it comes to cruises,  I am an expert – I’ve completed 23 different sailings to date and have experienced most of the cruise lines from large Ocean cruises to intimate River Cruises!  I have the answers to the questions you haven’t even thought about asking.  I strive to ensure that your cruise vacation is perfectly planned, hassle-free and exceeds your expectations by efficiently managing all of the travel-planning details from the moment you start dreaming until the moment you return home.

With so many cruise options out there, it can be overwhelming - but that is what I'm here for.  After all, your vacation is an investment of precious time and money - why not consult an expert and make sure you get it right?

I have also managed a few large Destination Weddings in the Caribbean - a unique service in itself for sure!

My strength lies in my attention to detail and my exemplary customer service. I make sure to consider every option and scenario when planning a trip, which allows my clients to enjoy a relaxing and problem free vacation or cruise to even the most remote and exotic destinations.

Let`s work together so that you can enjoy the beauty of travel today!

What A Ride !!!!!

Reviewed By Happy Guy - Brampton, Ont. Canada | Traveled to Roatan ~ Honduras ~ Central America
Cheryl Kelly-Guest Cruise Holidays...... A Super Cruise Consultant. She took care of every single detail... from start to finish. The only thing we had to do was “ pack our bags & get to the airport “

All the paper work for the flight to Fort Lauderdale ( and return flight ), the cruise, the pre booked on board shows and the excursions we chose, transportation and more ..... all taken care of by Cheryl.

All we needed to do was to have a good time ..... but we had a GREAT TIME !!! . No worries at all.

Thanks for Everything Cheryl.

PS What are you planning next :)

First Time Cruiser - Best Travel Experience Ever!

Travel planning and preparation with Cheryl Kelly is a pleasure. Cheryl is both knowledgeable and experienced, which is absolutely reassuring to both novice and seasoned travellers. She goes over and beyond your expectations. She offers up many do’s and don’ts, as well as many helpful tips to navigate throughout your journey. Cheryl has an enthusiastic passion for travel and for helping her clients get the best value and enjoyment from their chosen destinations. My recent experience, dealing and travelling with Cheryl was absolutely special. She takes care of every detail and will treat you like family with the utmost care for your well- being and safety, whether you’re travelling as a single, couple or group. It’s also worthwhile to mention her sense of humour and confidence to ease you through any possible stressful encounters. Cheryl truly is exceptional, “the best of all the rest”. She cares and she will definitely help you make memories to last a lifetime.

She's the best in the business!

Reviewed By Kassandra - Toronto, ON | Traveled to
Cheryl is amazing! She booked a Europe trip for me & three of my friends. Absolutely everything was taken care of i.e. transfers, flights, hotels and she managed to plan everything within a really tight budget. She even took the time to set up a meeting with us a few weeks before our trip to go over all of the details. My friends were so impressed with her that they have continued to book vacations with her time and time again. She is extremely friendly and I don't trust that anyone else could do the job quite like her! Highly recommend!

Amore!

Reviewed By J. Willoughby - Newmarket, Ontario | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Last year, I used Cheryl Kelly Guest at Cruise Holidays to book my dream vacation to Italy with my mother. From the very start she was professional, friendly and helpful (which would have been a challenge given the different views my mother and I had for our trip). We ended up with a result that has left me with memories that I will never forget.

The custom trip was exactly what we wanted.
Her ideas on how to make the trip as enjoyable and comfortable as possible (given my mother and I move at different paces) were invaluable. Since then, I have used her to book another custom tour to Spain and a family trip to Mexico. Each time I have relied on her expertise and advice to helping me get the best value for my money and my time. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone who values great customer service and is looking for someone who goes above and beyond.
