The trip was fantastic. The information gathered and organized by Ellison was invaluable in organizing the group and meeting timelines. Thank you, I would highly recommend Ellison Travel to clients, friends and family.

Lynda, along with our ET Tour Planner, worked with me to make sure that everything we wanted was included and was helpful in making changes to the itinerary when required or requested. The tour was a great collaboration of what we wanted and what your company could put together. It was a pleasure working with staff that were always willing to help solve problems, make adjustments, and accommodate us so that we had the best trip possible. Professional and friendly – a rare combination

Senior Manager, Business Development | Year Started in travel: 2011

I joined Ellison Travel and Tours in 2011 after selling my clothing business with multiple locations and prior to that working as Director of Sales for a large leather goods company where I was involved in the building of the corporate sales division, managing the sales team and working the corporate incentive and promotions market.

I have always believed that travel opens our minds to understanding and appreciating other cultures and I experienced this first-hand when, in Grade 11, I had the opportunity to travel on a humanitarian trip to Germany, Austria and Romania where I worked at Kids Camp. My eyes were opened to how fortunate we are to live in Canada and enjoy the freedom and opportunities we have (and too often take for granted) when I discovered how other kids lived.

I’ve spent a great deal of time travelling throughout North America for business and pleasure. I will never forget how I felt sitting in a café in Old Quebec in the heart of the city, enjoying the sights and sounds with a view of Le Chateau Frontenac and having the crowd suddenly silenced when marching bagpipe bands from around the world started to play “Amazing Grace” – a truly inspiring moment!

I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your student or corporate group to develop a tour you will always remember!
