Adventure Travel Specialist

 

 Hello! Thank you for visiting my page!

I have been in the travel industry for 5 years and I am very enthusiastic and dedicated to providing my clients with a fantastic vacation experience.

 I love the Caribbean and visit at least once a year, choosing different destinations and experiences each time. One memorable moment was whale watching in Samana, Dominican Republic. I was fortunate enough to see a young whale breach right next to our boat!

 While in destination I like to visit a few resorts so I can speak from personal experience about the area. I also do  research and destination training, but nothing beats seeing things first hand.  I have currently added  both  Anitgua, Barbuda Specialist  and my Aruba specialist to my list. I visited many outstanding resorts in Antigua this spring and would love to share those insights with you!

 I am a certified specialist with many of the cruise lines and I enjoy putting together complete cruise packages. Many of my retired clients enjoy my personal house calls, allowing me to help plan their vacation in the comfort of their own homes. They simply call with their travel plans, I do the research and arrive with the details ready to book! From there we discuss pre and post hotels, flights, Shore excursions and even insurance. A one stop travel shop right at home!

 I am a certified specialist for South Africa and Kenya. I have traveled to both countries to experience Safari and ballooning. Each country has its own unique landscape, wildlife and culture well worth seeing more than once!

 In closing I would like to say, I don't sell travel, I serve travelers. I am here to provide insight and guidance to the best of my ability to help you create YOUR ULITMATE DESTINATION EXPERIENCE. A great  vacation package is a balance of value and price, it is my goal to get you the best of both.

Thank you once again for visiting! I hope to hear from you soon!

Best Travel Wishes,

 Angie Matthews

 

 

 

 

Safari and Adventure Specialist

Drakensberg Mountains Above the Clouds
Drakensberg Mountains Above the Clouds

I am a certified South Africa and Kenya specialist. I have been to both countries and understand their unique qualities. I have been on safari at the Klaserie private reserve near Kruger National Park in South Africa and stayed in many of the beautiful lodges and tented camps in Amboseli, Lake Nukru and  Masi Mara, Kenya. I am now familiar with these regions, and have good insight to the driving distances and climate conditions of each area. 

I continue to work towards  my Adventure Specialist Certification through study and actual travel experience. I look forward to working with adventure clients who seek a little more from their travel experience.

Alaska dream trip

Thanks to Angie my husband and myself had a great cruise tour and cruise to Alaska this September. There were so many options to choose from and Angie helped us sort through them all to find the trip that was right for us. No easy task as there are so many. She answered all my questions and researched anything that was needed. Once we decided she did all the booking and made everything easy for us. There were no hitches. I will definitely book any future travel with Angie and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for personal service.

Angie was always there for me

Reviewed By Davina - Orangeville, Ontario | Traveled to
I asked Angie to help me with my flights to Istanbul and Greece. She was very helpful and knowledgeable on the flights and destinations. She even told me that I needed a travel visa to enter Turkey and gave me the webite in which to apply for it. I also purchased my travel insurance insurance through her. I didn't end up booking my flights with Angie because my daughter was already in Turkey and I was meeting her there and it just became too complicated with my daughters schedule so she booked for me instead. Angie was very respectful of my needs and never became that " pushy sales person" I will definitely use Angie for my future bookings.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Angie Matthews responded:
Entry and exit requirements along with travel insurance are very important necessities while traveling. I am happy to assist with all aspects of travel and I appreciate your trust in my services. I look forward to working with you again soon! Cheers! Angie

My Roman Holiday

Reviewed By Trish - Amaranth, ON | Traveled to
Thanks to Angie for organizing my flights and accommodations for Rome. A driver was waiting at the airport to pick us up, and took us to our hotel, at the corner of the Trevi Fountain. The hotel was amazing, with friendly and helpful staff. Our continental breakfasts that were included everyday, were wonderful, and they also served us a hot egg and bacon dish! Our hotel booked our ride back to airport for us, so helpful. Trish
