Genesis Vacations TPI

Where Your Journey Begins

I aim to create luxury travel experiences that are meaningful, sustainable and have a low impact on our beautiful world. Through my personalized and caring service, I seek to create the perfect vacation for my clients.



I have been drawn to Europe, especially Italy, my whole life. I have been there many times so I know the ins and outs of travel there. Whether it is a self-drive, train travel or a coach tour I can plan an amazing European experience for you.


Grandparents travelling with grandchildren. Wine lovers touring wineries in Italy. Friends travelling together with their own private guide. Whatever your group is, it is a really great way to travel. My extensive experience booking groups allows you t0 rest easy that it will be a seamless and wonderful experience.

Luxury Cruises

River cruising or small ship luxury ocean cruising are great ways to travel. Less guests on board, lots of space and often better value than the larger ships. If you like cruising, this is the way to go. Contact me for more information and learn about the protocols now in place to make this a safer way to travel.

Bucket List

I love planning these trips. Often my clients have been waiting to do these their whole life so the excitement is at a heightened level. Contact me to book yours now.


"Carolyn has helped us plan many trips with her in-depth travel knowledge and suggestions for destinations. On our latest trip to Sicily, we were caught in the impending WestJet Strike, which ultimately did not happen, but our flights from Rome were still cancelled at the very last minute (after we received our boarding passes). Carolyn, herself, was on vacation, but as soon as I contacted her about our cancellation, she immediately got us alternative flights which got us home only one day later. Without her help we would have been struggling on our own to book other flights or find accommodation in Rome which was fully booked. After booking us alternate flights, Carolyn submitted all of our information for us to WestJet for our compensation, including screen shots showing there were no other flights available other than the ones she booked. Thanks to Carolyn's knowledge and efficiency, we received our refund in the time WestJest specified. We highly recommend Carolyn as a dependable, reliable travel agent and would not plan a trip without her vast travel experience and knowledge. Her service level far exceeded our expectations.You can certainly book yourself, but when travel plans go awry, its nice to have someone of Carolyn's calibre ready to help."

"Carolyn was an absolute delight to work with. I explained the purpose of my proposed trip and with whom I would be travelling. With humour and professionalism, Carolyn understood precisely and with some built in flexibility, came up with the perfect plan for 4 women , who have been friends since high school, to celebrate their 70 th birthday together, in Ireland. We had lovely accommodations and an excellent driver/guide as we made our way around the south west of the country. The four of us were just enthralled with our trip to Ireland and we are all so grateful to have had this trip of a lifetime go so smoothly. Thanks to Carolyn for your excellent organizational skills and your good nature and inspiring confidence that all would be taken care of."

"It was a wonderful experience! Carolyn is very well informed and thorough. She spends a lot of time making sure she understands what you are looking for while you are traveling and finds the best available within your price range. She is willing to give her opinion and make suggestions. She offers recommendations and good choices. While being professional. Carolyn is pleasant and easy to relate to. I will definitely work her again and have already recommended her to others."
