Ellie Carolus

Fort Wayne, IN

Leisure Travel and Europe Specialist

I have only been in the travel industry for four 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 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.

Our Honeymoon - trip of a lifetime!
Ellie was absolutely exceptional and such a joy to work with. She checked in with us to make sure we had arrived with no troubles. When we arrived at our hotel, she had requested for them to bring us a wonderful honeymoon gift to the room. It was so handy to have tour tickets purchased ahead of time thanks to Ellie. When we had one little hiccup at the Kensington Palace with our Avanti tickets, Ellie was on it immediately, regardless of the 5-hour time change.

The thing that stands out to me the most though is that Ellie personally contacted the airline we were flying with to notify them that my husband has an anaphylactic nut allergy. Thanks to Ellie’s thoughtfulness, we didn’t have to feel near as nervous about any of the food onboard the aircraft because they made sure it was 100% nut-free due to Ellie’s phone call.

We feel so lucky to have had such a wonderful and caring travel agent to work with. I would definitely recommend Ellie for any of your traveling needs. 10 out of 1

The most relaxing vacation following our big day!
Ellie was quick to understand our desires and help us pick the honeymoon location that was perfect for us! Her itinerary was a great help as we decided where to go and what to see and do each day, and her detailed notes saved us a lot of time and stress!

The most magical honeymoon anyone could ask for!
Ellie was approachable, always prepared and professional when it came to our meetings and planning of the trip. We changed our honeymoon location several times yet she was extremely patient and forgiving of us. Every detail was perfectly scheduled, every car service pickup and excursion on time. She ensured that both the hotels we stayed at were aware of our reason for travel allowing the staff to treat us extra special. It was a trip that we absolutely loved and will NEVER forget thanks to Ellie!!
