New Orleans, LA – Karen is so great to work with… patient and prompt with all my questions and even with last minute adjustments…

Teresa Taylor, St. Clair College

Germany & Austria – There was something in our tour which would appeal to everyone – concerts, tours, shopping, sightseeing, concert venues, etc. It was very well done. A great experience for everyone

Michael Molloy, Harbour View Choral Ensemble

Austria & Italy – I enjoyed the fact that we got to see so many places. The sights were spectacular. All of the performance venues for the band were amazing experiences. I particularly enjoyed visiting the school, Musikhauptchule Gosau. An excellent trip!

Laurie Thomas, Pierre Elliott Trudeau High School

Cleveland, OH – In comparing costs with other tour companies Ellison had the best price. Although changes occured up to the last day (due to strike) – we were informed every step of the way.

Group Planner | Year Started in travel: 1977

After graduating from a Travel and Tourism course in 1977, I worked as a tour manager with both student groups and seniors, travelling across North America. In 1980, I settled down to work in a retail travel agency, and then joined Ellison Travel & Tours and the group department team in 1989. Here I have found my niche! I truly feel that my personal service and flexibility, provides my clients with the opportunity to create one-in-a-lifetime memories for their group. Our tours are customized to meet the needs of each individual group, with itinerary as well as payment schedules. I would like to extend a sincere thank you to all of my clients for their continued loyalty, and I look forward to working with the new clients that visit my home page and give me a call.

My travel experience includes North America, London, England, Ireland, Amsterdam, Paris, Switzerland, Germany, the Algarve in Portugal, Prague, Vienna, Italy, Jamaica and cruising the Caribbean. The internet is giving us the world at our fingertips…let me share it with you!
