Richard Ludwig

Director of Product & Marketing


Twelve hours. Twenty-six kilometers. Two people. And a lot of water. That’s all it took to conquer Yosemite’s Half Dome. But the best view from the granite dome wasn’t the mirror-like lakes or green valley. It was watching someone break down, sobbing, because they accomplished something they never thought possible because of her weight. But she found new strength atop that mountain. Before that I was just a guide, taking people from place to place to take pretty photographs. But after that day I dedicated my life to life to travel.

 

Noel Charbonneau

Director of Technology

 

One of Noel's truly special travel memories was a trip that he took to the island of Kaua'i, Hawaii around the year 2006. Kaua'i is known as the "The Garden Isle" due to its beautiful jungles, mountains, canyons and waterfalls. After being mesmerised with his travel experience, which included mountainside ziplining, hiking, boating, as well as some beach days... the "travel bug" was planted in him for good!

 

Eileen Yee

General Manager

MICE & Buffalo Educational Travel

 

Eileen’s dream was to become a Physics teacher, but her grad trip changed all that. The trip had opened up her eyes and mind to cultures different from what she grew up in and she was drawn into the world of travel. Believing that travel changes lives, she has helped her clients to see the world and opening up their minds and hearts. Her expertise lies in incentive and education travel where she began and remained for the last 24 years.
