I met Val in July of 2004 when I wanted to take a trip to the Fall Foliage in Atlantic Canada. She matched me with a travel companion from Nanaimo to avoid the single supplement  This was a wonderful trip.  I would recommend this club to anyone.  I am already registered for other trips the Club is offering.


In May I traveled with 16 members of the Club to four Greek Islands and Athens. It was a wonderful holiday. Everything was well planned and the accommodations were excellent. Earlier this year a group visited Cuba. We spent 3 days in Havana & 4 days in Varadero. Great trip, good accommodations& everything went smoothly.


How life begins at 60

Well, I will start off by saying something really corny, yet very true. This travel club has opened up a whole new world for me. As a retired widow, it was difficult to find friends to travel with. Those who could afford it, could not get away, those who had the time, did not have the money. You know the story. It is much too expensive and lonely to travel alone. Then I happened to attend a travel meeting and Val gave a presentation on a South Africa trip. Well, it sounded wonderful, so I signed up, not knowing who my roommate would be, and hoping we would be compatible, and especially hoping she would not be a neat freak! Well, I was delighted on both counts. We have had three overseas trips together and one road trip since.

The travel club meets once a month and those who attend discuss where they would like to go. There is a lot of sharing from experienced travelers and very interesting presentations from various travel agencies. We make suggestions on the type of accommodation we would like and can afford and the things that would be the most interesting to us, taking into consideration our physical abilities, etc. etc. Obviously some of us are not going bungy jumping or snow boarding! Val takes all these factors into consideration and puts together the best possible trips for us. We as a group have a great deal of flexibility in regards to the sights we wish to see. If we are not interested
in seeing 16 dancing snakes, we can omit that part of the trip!

This group is a wonderful opportunity to combine the joys of travel with the interesting conversation and company of our group. We also enjoy those who join us from other parts of the world. Everyone there loves the new experiences and delights of travel. I look forward to the trip to India in November and Kenya next spring. There is always something exciting to anticipate just around the next corner!


Dear Val - will no longer be eligible for your club next month, as I shall be getting married here in Manila.
Have fun traveling, and bringing joy and happiness to so many lives. Love and God Bless


Thanks for your personal touch to all our trips. Much appreciated


In October 2010 I went on my first Singles Travel trip with Val. We were away 18 days and had a most enjoyable and educational trip. Everything was well organized with excellent guides, drivers, hotels, food and air/boat transportation. Every day was packed full of activities. I bought a piece of furniture at X' Ian and appreciated Val's help with bargaining. One member developed a health issue and needed hospital care and she received excellent care from Val, the guide and the hospital. The lady was able to carry on with the rest of the tour after one day of rest. I am looking forward to my next trip with Singles Travel and think this company offers very good value and service to all members.


Thank you so much for all you do which helped make my dream of a lifetime come true Thank you for all the background work you do that not all get to see and going that extra mile was very much appreciated by me


I joined the Singles Travel club in order to travel and meet other people who also like to travel. It was a good decision. Last fall I traveled to China with the group for 16 days of fun and adventure. Everything went extremely well from beginning to end. The trip was well organized, taking us to many historical and beautiful spots.The group was wonderful to travel with - fun and friendly, and no luggage was lost - in spite of 8 plane trips! It was the most exciting and adventurous trip of my life and I can't wait to do more travel with Val.


Thanks you for doing a super job in organizing all our travel arrangements and tours though South Africa. We really enjoyed the trip & appreciate all you have done to make it a great holiday. Traveled on 6 trips with the Singles Travel Club & booked to go on 2 more.


I took my first trip with the Singles Travel Club February 2011. We went to South Africa. It was the trip of my life. We saw and did what I had expected and more. Val had matched me with a lady who I didn't know and we got along like sisters. So much that on our way home we were planning our next trip. We were twenty-two, eighteen women and four men. I felt safe with the group and by the end of the trip we were like a big family. I will be going with the club to Turkey in September and then France in May 2012. Thanks Val for making my dreams become reality.



A bouquet to Val of the Singles Travel Club. Thanks for coming to Nanaimo every month to provide us with fabulous trips. I look forward to the trips being planned for this year.

All the trips I have been on have been well organized, very interesting. I learned lots about the areas I visited, hotels were very good. I have travelled with different people & have had no issues with roommates. Joining the Singles Travel Club is one of the best decisions I have ever made.



I would like to thank you for arranging the cruise from Havana this past week. Everything was good. I enjoyed our 2 days at the beach resort also - our accommodations there were really good - quiet and very clean. Everything went smoothly - thanks again
