Santorini is a real gem!
Santorini is a real gem!

At 18 I embarked on my first solo adventure and I have never looked back. Travel continues to be one of my life's greatest passions.

As a retired French Immersion and Spanish teacher, I spent endless amounts of time organizing and facilitating student travel for over 30 years. It gave me great pleasure to show my students the world.

It seems only natural that I share that same skill set with other travellers! I want to give everyone the same opportunity to experience the diversity of our world -  its people, cultures and natural splendour! It holds a wealth of adventure for everyone.

  • Whether it's a cruise, a guided tour, independant or group travel, all are great adventures!
  • A destination wedding is the ultimate in romance!
  • A family vacation to Disneyland is something all family members will enjoy and remember for years to come!
  • A European river cruise is magical!
  • A girlfriends shopping trip to NYC is fabulous! A golf or ski trip? Yoga retreat? A Volunteering vacation? 

My personal favorite places to visit are related to my interest in language learning so I love to visit countries where the language and culture are very different from my own: France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, as well as Mexico and other Latin Amercian countries. 

Everyday I merge my passion for travel and my wealth of knowledge and planning skills to help people make their dream vacations come true.

So let's chat about where you'd like your next dream to take you!! I promise to attend to every detail!

Girls' trip on the Danube - so much fun!

Reviewed By Class of 76 - St. John's NL | Traveled to Danube ~ On the River ~ At Sea
We are a group of seven nursing classmates (Class of 76) who went on a delightful and fun Danube river cruise in the spring of 2019. Gail skillfully guided us through every step of our journey. She was patient and cheerful through all of our many questions and offered great suggestions. We were especially pleased with our cruise company (Emerald – beautiful ship, great food, amazing staff) and Gail’s suggested hotel in Budapest (Hotel Central Basilica - ideal location for a very reasonable price). Those of us who were able to meet Gail in person appreciated her lovely personality. We all received great swag from Emerald and from Destination Experts. One piece of advice for groups similar to ours – ask for two sets of documents for each cabin. With Gail’s help, we had a most enjoyable vacation!

Great cruise recommendations

Reviewed By Charlotte - Nunavut | Traveled to Bahamas ~ Caribbean
Having never cruised I reached out to Gail looking for some recommendations. I normally book all my own travel but was overwhelmed by all the choices. Gail listened to what we were looking for and narrowed our search. Since I was already using her services I also asked her to look into quotes for a rental car and she was able to get us a great deal. We will definitely use her services for future travel.

I can't say enough about how stress-free Gail made our trip. She made all the arrangements, addressed our questions and concerns quickly, and professionally all the while making sure we would have the best experience possible. She suggested things we had never even thought of, all of which made for a truly memorable trip.

A great trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Jan - St. John's | Traveled to Portugal ~ Europe
As we had already arranged our accommodations in Portugal, we asked Gail to be our travel planner. My travel companions were in Toronto and I am in St. John's. Gail planned an excellent, very reasonable priced itinerary using Aer Lingus from Toronto to Dublin, Ireland, and then on to Faro, Portugal. Because we were in Dublin for 8 hours, my companions and I were able to take a cab to Temple Bar for a great Irish breakfast. Then we walked around the area, to the Liffey River, crossed the ha' penny bridge back to historic O'Connell Street where a very informed cabbie brought us back to the airport.

Our plan was to stay in Portugal for five weeks; however, at the end of our third week, we got a call saying the mother of one of my travelling companions had suddenly passed away. We contacted Gail who worked diligently to get them back to Toronto asap. As this was very costly and time sensitive, Gail kept in close contact with us letting us know what options were available.

She made a change of plans very stress free

Reviewed By Jan - St. John's, NL | Traveled to
It was Friday at 10 am when my Saturday flight got cancelled because A nasty snow storm was due to hit St. John's that afternoon. I had to be at the airport within three hours, and while I was running around the house gathering last minute items for a six week trip down south, I emailed GAIL that I needed a hotel tonight in Toronto near the airport. By the time I got to the airport and started to unwind, she had the whole thing arranged--hotel, the shuttle, and all I had to do was be there. You can't imagine how relieved I felt. The hotel was excellent and even included a complimentary breakfast. And the funny part of the story I found out later that day was that GAIL was on her own vacation when she rescued me! Thanks, GAIL

Trip of a lifetime

Reviewed By Gail - Portugal cove | Traveled to
Our daughter was getting married on a cruise which was planned almost two years in advance. In October we decided to go to Florida a week early. I called Gail and told her when we wanted to go. She arranged everything. Our flights to and from; a beautiful condo in Kissimmee; car rental; changed our passport numbers; insurance that covered everything; all the tiny details that had to be done before hand which I never would have thought of myself. I called she so many times and she was never anything but courteous. She brought us all the papers we needed. The only thing we had to do was go to the airport and get on the plane. I would never have been able to take that extra week without her help and guidance. Not to mention the prices she was able to get us. Never would have gotten anything close myself. Thank you so much Gail. The wedding was awesome too....

Amazing stress free retirement trip!

Reviewed By Cheryl - Harbour Grace, NL | Traveled to
Gail made our travel arrangements with ease and ensured every detail was exactly as we requested! Most importantly this vacation was stress free knowing she was there for us. She even suggested we book our seats in advance with Sunwing premium and we had advanced boarding and no worries at either airport. Gail also emailed the resort in advance of our arrival with some special requests, such as rooms close to each other as we were sisters and hubbies travelling together to celebrate my retirement, and sure enough, we got our request! Everything was perfect! Gail even emailed us during the week to ensure everything was as we had hoped! Gail was quick, efficient and very caring in arranging this amazing trip for us! Thanks again so much Gail!

Hawaii Honeymoon - Made Possible by GAIL!

Reviewed By Renee & Paddy - St. John's, NL | Traveled to
Well, I just flew in last night from my dream Honeymoon. We got married in July and decided that Hawaii would be our destination for almost three weeks of perfect blissful relaxation. As Gail was a high school teacher of mine and had planned many a school trip that all seemed to go off without a hitch, and knowing she'd recently pursued a new career as a travel agent, I thought I'd contact her. Boy was this a good decision!! We first wanted to fly to Vancouver for a visit, then onto Hawaii, do a cruise to all the islands, spend some more time in Honolulu, then fly to Nashville for a few days and then fly home. We were going in November. That was doable, she said. Then due to unforeseen circumstances, we ended up in Nashville on vacation last year, so we decided to pull Nashville. No problem, Gail re-arranged it. Then I became pregnant, and had a ton of questions for my vendors, but didn't have to call any of them myself, she got all my questions answered, so because I couldn't travel after a certain point, we needed to change the vacation (which was booked in its entirety and half paid for at this point) to September. No sweat, Gail to the rescue. I was nothing short of demanding, wanting a romantic supper on the beach one evening, a certain resort, a certain room on the cruise that allowed me to see the Na'Pali Coast, I wanted to pay it off bit by bit, use my Mom's visa because we were crunched during wedding time, use my visa next time, book this, change that.. I was probably a nightmare of a client. But she made it all happen and it went off without a hitch. I didn't do anything to plan it, and it turned out to be a dream come true. (she stayed up until 2am some nights at it for me!) If you are planning to honeymoon, or even just want a nice relaxing romantic vacation - choose Hawaii and stay at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. If it's in your budget, DEFINITELY do the NCL Pride of America cruise, it's a real dream. No matter what you do, you need Gail, trust me!

"No worries" I told my wife. I can do this! We were planning a three week European vacation to France and Italy. After weeks of internet searches and endless phone calls, I became discouraged. I needed help but I felt that a Travel Agent would just try to 'up sell' us and take away our input. That was when we found Gail Perry. I was so wrong.Gail stayed true to our goals and stayed within our budget. When we sat with Gail, she asked to see what I had researched and asked great questions about what kind of experience we were looking for. She involved my wife, which was very important and she set a timeline when we would meet again. Heather and I both felt great about that first meeting but we we so pleased and surprised with Gail's preparedness for our next meeting. It was a heavy weight off me. Even more pleasing was the final meeting before a travel departure date. Gail arrived at our house with "The Package". It was a folder containing everything we would need about everywhere we would travel (including Car rentals and Train Tickets) and places we would stay. Also included were, "sights to see and places to eat" The 'where to eat' part was especially poignant, since my wife has Celiac Disease.We had names and addresses of any Gluten free restaurants in Dijon, Avignon and Nice in France, as well as Florence and Rome in Italy. As they say"Happy wife:Happy Life" Now that we have returned, we are singing the praises of this travel agent, Gail Perry. Everything went as planned by us and our travel agent. And as Robert Frost said in his poem, 'The Road not Taken',....".and that made all the difference". Thank you, Gail. Thank you Brian and Heather Vardy

We all need a Gail when traveling!

Reviewed By Mr. D. - Yellowknife, NWT | Traveled to
From start to finish Gail was with me and my two daughters all the way to Disney World and back. She had a package ready for me within my budget and she was online at the same time I was guiding me through the process of picking attractions, booking Fast Passes and meal plans. She made it easy. Our first night at Disney World was marred by Air Canada losing one of our bags. I texted Gail about this and she told me to go on with our vacation and she would take care of it. Despite the airline agent giving me incorrect information, Gail figured it out and kept the bag recovery process going and texted me updates throughout the day. It all worked out by the end of day one. While at Disney World Gail texted regularly every day asking if the hotel and meals were satisfactory and if there was anything we needed. We had a great week. Due to congestion at Pearson Airport we missed out connection on the way back home and Gail was right there checking on alternate flights and asking if I needed to book a hotel, if we had eaten that day and if our bags were there. She was genuinely concerned about us after the rough start we had had with the missing bag. I arrived home yesterday after being up for a very long time and I received a text from Gail tonight checking to see if we were rested after the trip. None of the problems we encountered on our trip were the fault of vacation.com but Gail stepped up and tried to solve them anyway. It bears mentioning that she did this while on vacation visiting her own family. Would I use Gail again? I just texted her a few minutes ago about my upcoming trip to France and she is already working on it!

Gail helped me plan our side trip to France from England. We're a family of four and it's great to know that at the end of your day's journey there is a hotel waiting for you. She took care of everything from our departure in King's Cross to Lille, France. Our car rental was waiting for us there ( I would recommend a GBS in the car - it made travelling supereasy right to the door of our hotel. Our hotel came with breakfast which was fabulous for us and free on street parking or paid parking in the attached garage. We spent two nights in Arras and then continued our journey to Bruges to a delightful hotel overlooking the canal and one of Bruges' many bridges. The hotel took care of our parking there as well. Bruges is beautiful. This hotel also came with breakfast. It was a wonderful experience to have breakfast in the am listening to German, Spanish, Chinese and French. I think we were the only English speaking guests there. Both hotels were great. In Arras it was the Holiday Inn Express and in Bruges it was Europhotel. With GPS both were incredibly easy to find. Driving in France and then onto Belgium was an easy stress free experience. delightful. We found all of the five Newfoundland caribou. With Gail's help it truly was an awe-inspiring trip stress-free adventure.
