About me

Hi, I’m CJ.

Welcome to my world of travel!

As an experienced travel professional who loves to help people experience the world, I aim to make your travel dreams a reality. By getting to know you and your travel preferences, I can create a trip tailored to your needs.

With over 16 years of experience in luxury cruising, adventure tours, and more, I have extensive knowledge of destinations worldwide.

As your personal travel manager, I will advise on every aspect of your journey, from booking flights to arranging tours and I will help you design a unique and unforgettable travel experience.

I take the stress out of travel planning, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your holiday.


But don’t just take my word for it – here’s what one of my clients had to say about her recent trip to Canada:

Catherine James, (C.J), has been my travel agent for many years.

A number of years ago she was able to fly me out of India at very short notice when I became unwell.

Last year she helped organise my trip to Canada, where I travelled solo. It was one of the most enjoyable vacations I have been on.

C.J found me the most direct and economical flights to Canada and she was able to accommodate me when I changed travel dates.

C.J organised my sleeper car on the overnight train trip from Vancouver to Jasper; one of the most beautiful train trips in the world. She also organised all my internal flights within Canada and when I mentioned being interested in seeing parts of Alaska, C.J booked me on an eight day Holland America cruise, departing from Vancouver. The cruise enabled me to see the beauty and grandeur of the Alaskan coastline.

C.J is the most professional travel agent I have met. She creates a unique, individual timetable for each client and she makes sure the client’s needs are met. All this she does with patience, humour and enthusiasm.

I have no hesitation in recommending Catherine James for all travelling plans, whether short or long, for business or for pleasure.
