Family Vacations & Destination Wedding Specialist

At 18 years old, I set off for my first great adventure. I travelled to Australia and spent a year discovering the sights, sounds and culture of this magnificent land.  Upon my return home, I immediately began my career in the travel industry. 

It's been 18 years since then, and I can safely say I am still deeply passionate about travel and I love to help my clients achieve their dreams.

I specialize in planning destination weddings for couples.  In many cases, the bride and groom are not only trying to plan their wedding, but also coordinate a trip for a large group of people. 

I alleviate their stress by:

  • booking the entire trip for every member of the wedding group
  • as well as answering all of their questions
  • handling the fiinances
  • coordinating often forgotten details

Couples should spend this special time in their lives planning their wedding and focusing on their big day - not planning a vacation for their friends and family.  I make sure every detail has been considered and finalized, and they don't have to worry about a thing!

When it comes to planning vacations for my clients, my favorite thing to do is create a unique itinerary that will work for them, time wise and budget wise. 

For example, many families love to take their children to Disneyland.  When I book this vacation, I always attach a stay in San Diego as well.  A package that allows the family to unwind and decompress before they head home.

My clients appreciate the fact that I am there for them throughout the entire travel experience - from the planning process through the trip itself, and even after they have returned home.  Unexpected things can happen while travelling, including disruptions in the itinerary and medical emergencies. 

I have the professional experience to help guide you through any issues you may encounter, and will make sure you don't have to stress about anything on your trip.

I believe that every person deserves a trip that is filled with laughter, love and beautiful memories.

 

 

 

Testimonials

San Francisco Bay Area

"We've been booking our trips with Carmen for 6 yrs. During this time she has helped to find the best deals & booking has gone so smoothly. When unexpected events happen & you have to cancel all travellers or part of the party travelling, she is there to help from start to finish. Our last trip was one of those instances & Carmen stayed in contact with us until we received our payment from the ins company. She makes the whole process of booking easy and tries to always be available when it is convenient for the client.  Always a pleasure doing business with her & just hearing her laugh ( & u will), will make you a return customer for sure."

Super helpful travel agent, challenging conditions

Reviewed By Jason G - Fort McMurray | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Excellent.
Carmen was always helpful, understanding, and super quick in addressing my irregularly large number of questions and concerns. This includes going above and beyond when a family member suddenly passed a few days prior to our departure. Carmen took the extra time to help us thoroughly explore all our options during this family emergency even though we declined the insurance package.
We were part of a group wedding booking but modified our itineraries significantly.

Splendid Last-Minute Vacation

Reviewed By Barb - Calgary, AB | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Carmen was incredibly responsive in accommodating my last-minute request to join a group booking. She expedited everything in one day, and managed to get me in on the same deal (or better!) as my friends who had booked months before. It was my 10th trip to Mexico, and third to the Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta area, but it ranks as one of my best experiences -- fabulous company in a beautiful, uncrowded resort on a wonderful long beach AND worry-free airport transfers!

Best Travel Agent EVER!!!

Reviewed By Terina - High River | Traveled to Cuba ~ Caribbean
Carmen has been an awesome travel agent, I recommend her when ever I can. Carmen has book many personal trips and some work trips for me. I work with adult disabled people and she has gone above and beyond organizing trips for my people. For 2 of trips we happened to have serious situations 1 person actually passed away unexpectedly and another became very ill. Carmen was fantastic in helping us with that whole process. I am not sure what I would have done if it weren't for Carmen
Carmen also has a ton of patience because I have booked a few group holidays and people want all different kinds of information and Carmen is so accommodating. I am sure there are times she would like to tell me to fly a kite;.

Carmen has booked several trips for me over the past 15 years, including Bali, Egypt, Hawaii, China, a few cruises, including tours, and most recently a trip to Las Vegas to celebrate my birthday. This was not the first Vegas trip I booked with Carmen.

When I advised Carmen of my dates of travel and budget she got straight to work finding the best option for me. She came back with a couple of different choices and helped me make the final decision. She even advised the the hotel that it was my birthday and they included a complimentary bottle of champagne.

Carmen worked quickly and effectively to organize our spontaneous trip to Disney.

She chose a very clean hotel very close to Disney that was perfect for a vacation full of SO many hours of walking! I will definitely work with Carmen again, as she made the trip so easy and she planned out each step of the way so carefully.

Stress Free Vacation Planning

Reviewed By Wagenaar's - Coaldale, AB | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Carmen assisted my husband and myself with booking a trip to Italy, Germany and Holland in Spring of 2017. She was fantastic and energetic to deal with. Her passion for her job is very evident and without her knowledge our trip wouldn't have been nearly as successful. She thought of all the "details" when we started planning our trip and communicated quickly and effectively along the way. I had never travelled in Europe before so this was very helpful and kept my stress to a minimum. I look forward to planning another trip with her in the future!

Fabulous Trip

Reviewed By GinOthersyde - Aldersyde, Ab. | Traveled to Boston ~ Massachusetts ~ USA
Once again Carmen booked us with a wonderful trip. It was so easy having Carmen make all the arrangements and then promoting us to confirm reservations and baggage claim tickets for the cruise line at the appropriate times. The hotels were reasonably priced and close to all the attractions we wanted to see. So if you want to experience the trip and not the hassle of booking it I would highly recommend you contact Carmen.

Carmen has been a fabulous travel agent. We will use no one else. I no longer look and browse the internet looking for deals. I call her and give her a window and a price point. She handles everything else. We have traveled a lot in the past, and she has always lined us up with better accommodations and a waaaaay better price than what we have found ourselves. She takes the stress out of planning, and is a pleasure to talk to.
