Travel Agent booking river cruises and expedition cruises

About my fees:

My base consulting, planning & booking fees range from $199 to $349 + HST per trip based on 2 people or a single family. Everyone receives a complimentary initial consultation with me.  This is where we will determine if we are a good fit and would like to work together!

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

Why should I book through Yaycations?

There are so many reasons, but I will let you know about a few of the best!


  • You get to work with ME! A real person who cares about YOU and your vacation! I am going to ensure you get the BEST experience! With my trusted suppliers like Viking River Cruises and Hurtigruten Expeditions you know you will not end up in the basement closet (unless that is where you would like to sleep).


  • I CAN save YOU time and effort.  If you have ever tried to book your vacation you know how many hours can slip by just trying to sift through the information online.  It can be overwhelming even for the most experienced travellers! Let me do it with you or for you, your choice!
