In the mid 1980's we began building and escorting special interest tours for small groups who wanted personal attention and a more intimate experience of the history, culture, food, and the people of specific regions.
Now, after 20 years of building tour and holiday programs we have developed brands that focus on specific styles of travel. We invite you to consider one of our "Collection of Travel Brands" that include: Travel Broker Tours, Canadian Woman Traveller, Creative Arts Holidays and Custom Holidays.
Travel Broker Tours (TBT) offer unique escorted travel experiences personally designed for people looking to get "up close and personal" with cultures, history, breathtaking scenery, traditions, food and wine of the specific regions we visit. Our small group environment provides overall enjoyment of great camaraderie as we travel, discover, and experience this wonderful world together.
Our programs are limited to 12 - 20 participants allowing us to visit charming small villages and hotels that cannot accommodate large coaches or groups. The people in the towns and villages we visit cherish their history, yet are open to sharing their traditions to intimate small groups wishing to see, learn and interact with them.
We welcome people from around the world that all have the 'travel bug' and wish to explore and learn with like-minded travel companions. Our passengers not only come away with memorable travel experiences, but often gain friendships that will last a lifetime.
Canadian Woman Traveller's (CWT) founder Debbie Lloyd felt the need for travel programs geared toward the interests of women.
Their passengers are women from across Canada and around the world! Canadian Woman Traveller's passengers are a mix of women - single, married, widowed, divorced, young and old who are looking for camaraderie and security in their travel experience.
Their unique escorted tour programs have developed a tremendous following over the years, which has created a network of like-minded women who enjoy and look forward to participating in fun and exciting travel adventures.
You're invited to join them on one of their journeys to exlore the world, learn about old cultures and enjoy great food, wine and company. Canadian Woman Traveller has provided a safe and enjoyable environment to share travel experiences and adventures with other women. Come live your dreams!
"Some of the most significant moments in our lives came about during our travels, and the rewards have been unimaginable."
Creative Arts Holidays (CAH) travel programs combine painting instruction with sightseeing, socializing, visiting art galleries, great hospitality and first-class instruction in some of the most sought after and beautiful locations. For those of you who are familiar with 'Paintbrush Holidays' we are extremely excited to announce our expansion into the creative arts world with our new tour brand, Creative Arts Holidays!
Imagine yourself painting markets and vineyards in Southern France or photographing "The Big Five" in the iconic Serengeti of Africa. Its all possible with Creative Arts Holidays!
Our group sizes are always smaller than 18 persons, allowing for quality creative instruction. The security and camaraderie of our programs provide a comfortable structure for both novices and accomplished creative artists alike.
Our locations offer the diversity of other activities such as walking, historical studies, museums and shopping, so that creative artists may have non-artistic conpanions accompany them on these fantastic journeys.
So come along with us and Create your Own Impressions as you Travel the World!
