Don Hiscox was incredible at structuring an easy to follow itinerary, supporting us with necessary information before we went as well as being responsive while on tour. With last minute changes, Don was excellent at making these quick adjustments. He had a helpful answer for everything and was incredibly prompt in answering emails while constructing this trip together.

Group Planner | Year Started in travel: 1994

I began working at Ellison Travel & Tours in 1994, and during this time I have enjoyed working with a broad spectrum of clients to destinations across Canada, the United States and Europe.

Canada is a truly exciting country to explore. Toronto has great theatre and educational experiences for people of all ages. Montreal features some of the best cuisine and culture on the planet. Quebec City, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, has all the cultural and architectural charm of Europe within its walls (a personal favourite of mine). Ottawa, the Nation’s Capital, is home to many of Canada’s great national museums and other cultural activities.  The Atlantic Provinces offer a friendly atmosphere and heart-warming culture that’s good for the soul. Alberta and British Columbia offer rugged mountain beauty and adventure combined with coastal experiences to suit the dreams of young and old alike.  The Prairie Provinces offer wide-open space and a hassle-free experience.  And don’t forget the unique experiences of Canada’s North. –Canada has something for you!

Personal factoids: a father of 4 (and foster dad to many more), I have published a children’s Christmas story for Grade 3 – 6 level readers entitled The Sled: A Christmas Story.  Adventure travel is a new-found passion of mine, including hiking the Grand Canyon and Alberta.

If you are a group leader who needs assistance setting up a tour, don’t hesitate to give me a call. I would be happy to customize a tour to your specific requirements!
