My daughter, Kim, wanted a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic specifically in Punta Cana. We had approached someone at the annual Wedding Show who was advertising destination weddings and left our name with her. She contacted us once and we explained what we were looking for and we never heard from her again. I then contacted Christine Ward (Christine-GreatEscapesmymts.net or 204-885-7261) and within a couple of days she sent us a number of suggestions and set a date to meet with Kim, and her fiancé, Jim, to discuss the wedding. Christine co-ordinated the whole trip for us. She sent information packages to everyone who was interested in attending. She booked the flights and resort for 36 of us. Some of the guests went for one week but most went for two weeks. Although the ultimate choice of where we stayed was Kim and Jim's, Christine took the worry away. She did everything for us and the trip was wonderful. The accommodations were beautiful, the group flew together and stayed together in the same area of the resort. I would, and have, suggested Christine Ward, as the premiere travel agent for any type of travel. She takes the time to make your travel experience a wonderful one.

We want to thank you for making our trip an enjoyable one. Your caring and efficient manner while in Puerto Vallarta with us has been very much appreciated and we will have absolutely no problems in recommending you or your agency to others who wish a comfortable holiday. Once again, thank you.
Jim & Joan Madrigga, Winnipeg
Christine, you are so passionate and enthusiatic about your travels that you love to share with others and you get them excited for their own personal journeys. You not only create an image for your clients before their departure, but you also offer extras and things to know while at the destination and which in return, creates the special memories of the vacation afterwards. You go above and beyond for everyone and are a true expert of what you do best!

I can't thank you enough Christine for all your hard work. Our trip was amazing ! Everything went perfectly. Christine was great at finding in finding the perfect resort for our wedding. She worked with me for quite a while until we found the right one for us. She was also very accommodating to all our guests, as we had guests flying in from other cities! We were very pleased with our service and highly recommend Christine.The resort (Grand Sirenis) was beautiful. It was overwhelming at first because of its size but within a day we felt more comfortable! There was so much to do there and the landscaping and greenery was a beautiful touch that I haven't seen at other resorts before. The wedding went extremely smooth and everyone enjoyed themselves! West jet was fantastic! We especially loved the plus seating; thank you! You will definitely be hearing from us again!😊

I have known Christine for thirty years and no one works harder to make sure you have the best vacation. She researches your destination and provides you with an incredible amount of information. This enables you to make decisions about the type of vacation you want to experience. She has arranged two destination weddings for our family - one for my daughter and another, a few years later, for my niece. They were both extremely successful with no hiccups in either trip. Considering there were approx. 30 - 40 people in each group; I feel this is a tribute to her organization skills to make sure every detail was taken care of. I do highly recommend Chris as an exceptional travel agent and she will take excellent care of you and your travel needs. Sincerely Judy Miller
I have not yet taken a tour with Christine, but I follow her social media and have had long conversations about different options. It is obvious she has a wealth of experience on an array of different types of vacations - from destination wedddings to adventure to cruises. Her observations and suggestions are always on point. If I take a vacation at all next year, I'd go with the tour she is organizing to Rwanda and Uganda.

Christine books our trips in the winter for where we want to go. Sometimes we get an upgrade - I trust her to make our trips simple and easy.
Kathleen Taylor, Winnipeg
We have just completed our first trip with Christine as our travel agent. It was an amazing and positive experience. Our first cruise! She provided excellent information on the details of every aspect of our trip. We believe that a face to face meeting before the trip with all the travel documents prepared for us is a fantastic way to begin the experience. Thank you Christine
John & Elizabeth Towle, Gilbert Plains, MB
We are so glad we had Christine as our travel agent. She found us the perfect hotel and location in London. We reviewed with Christine all our needs and wants for the trip a few months prior to the trip and she came up with the perfect plan for us. She took all the worry out of our travel plans - she did all the heavy lifting for us so we could just enjoy the trip! Thank you Christine.
Robin Carels, Winnipeg
In May 2018, Christine prepared a vacation for my wife and myself, along with four other people. She managed to book us in rooms next to each other and gave us great advice to make this cruise a memorable cruise.

I planned a cruise with my family of 16 over a year ago for this Jan. I have been working with Christine on all aspects of the cruise. She has been extremely helpful as we travel down this road.
Marilyn Cartwright, Winnipeg
Christine did an incredible job putting together the perfect vacation for us. We traveled for 30 days to 4 countries with a cruise in the middle. She coordinated all our hotels, flights , trains and tours. All we needed to do was enjoy !
Bill & Lily Thomson, Winnipeg
I expressed an interest in travel to a non-resort warm winter vacation spot. Christine came up with a perfect solution of two different spots in Mexico which we thoroughly enjoyed. This has led us to spend 7 consecutive winters in various spots on the west coast of Mexico, for which we will be eternally grateful. We are now “happy Snowbirds”, all due to her professional and caring service, and attention to detail.
Reg & Sue Muir, Oliver BC
Easy to talk with, and always available to answer questions.
Arlene Dibley, Winnipeg
Christine is very efficient and is a reliable agent
Kim Mulla, Tyndall MB
Christine went above and beyond my expectations. My travelling companion wasn't feeling great and Christine helped in EVERY way possible - carrying her luggage and anything else she could do. The following year we booked with her and she gave us exactly what we asked for - at an excellent cost. Personally I don't think you could get a better Travel Agent anywhere!!!
Robbie Mazo, Winnipeg
She has always given us the best possible bookings and kept us totally informed with plenty of background information. A pleasure to work with

Michael Schieffer & Torrie Preteau, Winnipeg
I just wanted to say thank you for the recommendation on a wonderful resort and for the extras you did to ensure we had a wonderful time. You were right about the food, drinks and the kids club- all were fabulous. We had a wonderful time that we all really needed and really appreciate all you did. Thanks
Sheila Nash & Alun Bowness
We all had a great time. The hotel in Honolulu Aston at Waikiki Banyan was good, but as usual the pictures are nicer than the place. For the price it was a great location for everyone and Our room was good. I think it was a little tight for the younger kids. The Royal Sea Cliff Kona by Outrigger was great. We would go back anytime. Everybody loved it, two great pools right on the ocean. Thanks very much for your help in this. The time is just to short. Sincerely,
Karin Weise, Winnipeg
It's not just the thoughtful things you do that make you so incredible, it's the love and the caring behind your kindness. It was great meeting you and Rod and spending time with you in Puerto Vallarta. We had a wonderful time. Going to La Penita and Guayabitos was special as we got to see the countryside and visit the market. Thank you for including us. We had a great group of people who have become friends.
Deena & Patrick Evans
We loved our resort and the whole trip. It was fantastic. Thank you for all your help
