As long back as I can remember, I’ve loved to travel. While I didn’t have much opportunity to travel when I was young, in the mid 1980’s, we decided to take our sons to as many eastern United States as we could. As a result, I was hooked!! I’ve been travelling ever since.
I’ve been an agent for 10 years and loved every minute of it. As an agent, I’ve visited 7 Canadian Provinces, 21 states in the United States, , and 24 countries in the world. As a Sandals Specialist, I’ve also visited Sandals resorts in St. Lucia and Jamaica. In additions I have specialist designations with Princess Cruises, Disney, Norwegian Cruise Lines, and Marriott Hotel.
My name is Lesley Berry, BA, CTC and I have been in the Tourism industry for more than 10 years as a home based agent. I have also had the pleasure of instructing courses in Tourism, Hospitality, Marketing and Customer Service for both Fanshawe College and TriOS College. I have recently completed my Bachelor of Arts, Tourism and Parks Management degree from the University of Waterloo and have proudly maintained my Certified Travel Counsellor (CTC, ACTA) designation since graduating from Westervelt College and becoming an agent in 2008. I have an array of travel experience but predominantly our personal travel experiences have taken us to Walt Disney World and Disney Cruises. We’ve traveled to Disney more than 25 times, and we got married at a resort in the Downtown Disney area. I have experience with Destination Weddings, Cruises, All-Inclusive packages, European honeymoons and tours and beyond. If you can dream it we can assist in making it a reality!
I enjoy history and love learning about diverse cultures and countries. I decided to be a travel consultant in 2008 on a part time basis until I retired and then to step it up to full time in 2016. I believe in personalized service, so I will come to you, yes, I do house calls! I love Europe and have travelled to Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Spain and Germany. Of course, like most Canadians, I also love the warm Caribbean beaches of many Caribbean Islands.I also believe in education and am constantly taking courses to be sure to give my clients the most up to date information and the best possible travel experience. To me, the best education is through travel.
