Paola Molinari-Shaw 

I have been working as a travel agent for 28 years & during this time I have enjoyed working with clients to fulfill their travel dreams.


You will always receive personal service & I am always available to answer any questions you have regarding your holiday.


I have a special interest in travel to Europe, with Italy being one of my most favourite destinations, it is where I was born and to which I have been many times.


It will be my pleasure to be escorting a ladies only small group tour this September to Northern Italy and to many of the towns in my home region. The tour will focus on Food & Wine and will be from Sept. 21st to Oct. 3rd.


Among the several specialist courses that I have completed are: Aussie Specialist, a France Certified Destination Agent, Jamaica Travel Specialist, Tauck, Avalon & AMAWaterways River Cruise Specialist & Globus Tour Expert.


I also enjoy both ocean & river cruising, my most recent ocean cruise was on the AzamaraJourney on their wonderful 7 night cruise from Civitavecchia to Monte Carlo and my last river cruise was just recently on Tauckfrom Vienna to Nurnberg for the Christmas Markets. Whether you like to travel on a cruise, a tour or independently I would be happy to assist you with arranging your travel plans.

Melitta Hannon


Born in Australia and living in England for 5 years before immigrating to Canada, sparked my love for seeing the world at an early age. When I was 19, I moved back to Australia and lived there for 2.5 years which confirmed my childhood desire to make travel my career choice. I have been in the travel industry since 1984 and of those 32 years, I owned and operated my own business Beeline Travel for 14 years before moving to Vision Travel. 


I love to explore new places and experience local food and cultures. My favourite way to see the wonders of the world is to cruise, regardless if it is on a river or an ocean. I thoroughly enjoyed my first river cruise in June of 2013 on ArosaStella starting in Lyon, taking us to the south of France, and back to Lyon. River cruises are a hot travel option at the moment. My most memorable ocean cruise was from Rome to Nice on AzamaraJourney, as it gave a breath-taking view of the Italian and French Riviera’s. 


My most recent exotic destination was a fabulous 9-night, 5 island tour of the Tahitian Islands that took place in December 2015. I also enjoy escorting tours, one being an amazing 9-night, ladies-only tour to Peru in April 2015. This year I am excited to be escorting a ladies-only to Northern Italy in September 2017 and a ladies-only to Peru in May 2018, along with a River cruise in the next couple of years for everyone. 


I enjoy helping people plan their vacation by using my experiences to turn their travel dreams into the perfect customized vacation. Due to my attention to detail and high standards for customer service, most of my clients are repeat travelers or referrals. Please call me at 289-344-0087 or email me at
