Leisure Travel and Europe Specialist

I have only been in the travel industry for two and a half years, but travel has been a part of my life for as long as I remember.

I combine my passion for discovering off-the-beaten-path adventure with the vast network of preferred suppliers to create unique and memorable itineraries for my clients. My goal for every trip I plan is to ensure that the client gets the best value for their time and money.

My most recent trips were to the urban oasis of Vancouver, the wilds of Whistler, and Iceland, a place of fierce beauty. I've also taken short jaunts to San Antonio, Seattle, Toronto, and the Adirondack mountains in New York.

My favorite type of vacation is exploring the Great Outdoors. Additionally, I enjoy roaming around urban cities and local villages on foot or by bicycle to get a feel for local culture. Spending a year in Europe taught me to take half as many clothes and twice as much money when traveling. I always carry a Swiss army knife and a notebook on my trips because sometimes a smartphone just doesn't cut it.

I firmly believe that travel is essential for personal growth and that "the world is a book; those who don't travel read only a page."

"Ellie is amazing!! She created a phenomenal European adventure for my family, on a budget and with short notice. This organization is a pleasure to work with! They also beat any pricing I found on the many online services I researched. We had the peace of mind that we would have everything we needed in both our accommodations and travel." -Karen J.

Exceptional Adventures in Zurich, Munich, and Salz
Ms. Carolus helped us take our trip idea from an amorphous concept to a defined itinerary, tailored to fit our needs and goals for our first trip to Bavaria, Zurich, and Salzburg. She provided a wealth of options with regards to sites, tours, and activities during our travels, incorporating feedback as we refined our ideas as to what our trip should entail. Ellie’s recommendations were top notch and led us on some of our most exciting adventures on our trip. Her guidance with regards to which hotels to book to how to best allocate our trip budget to get the most bang for our buck was impeccable. We look forward to working with Ms. Carolus on future trips abroad.
