Leisure Travel, Group, & Custom Tours Specialist

I have the best job in the world!   all though I am here for all of your vacation needs, while most travel agencies focus their efforts on the individual vacation experience, Ah Weh Vacations is unique, in that I've built a thriving business in the group market focusing on client retreats/masterminds, and a wide variety of affinity groups and various business events. I specialize in selecting, planning, marketing, administering groups of all types and sizes.   My commitment is to ensure group travelers receive courteous service and support, expert advice and the best values available. 

Today, we have more options than ever for exploring the world with, friends, clients and our loved ones in style! 

I started traveling at an early age, and I quickly began preparing complex vacations on my own. It became my main passion, and I loved the thrill of searching through the options and then watching it all come together in the end. After decades of traveling, I created my own travel agency where I could directly help others experience the trip of a lifetime.

I can book intimate trips for two along with tours for groups of over 50 people. I work with everyone from individuals to corporate groups, and I book each trip as if it were my own by finding the best extras and preparing the most optimized routes. Every itinerary that I create is completely personalized to give you the best experience possible.

I’ve created all types of vacations including:

  • All-inclusive getaways
  • Luxury cruises
  • Culinary tours
  • Wellness retreats
  • High-octane adventures
  • And more!

Some interesting recent bookings include wine and cooking tours in the United States & Europe plus adventure and wellness packages in stunning Peru and Costa Rica. I love learning about my client’s interests and incorporating them into the itinerary, and I research everything to ensure you have a stress-free and endlessly exciting experience. Whether you're an individual looking for an unforgettable adventure or the leader of a group embarking on a personalized trek, I'm ready to make your trip the best it can be! 

I will research everything for you and take care of all the paperwork so you can simply pack, arrive, and enjoy your vacation. I simplify everything so you never have to get overwhelmed by all the options, and with my expert assistance, your trip will be planned around your interests and expectations.

I'm a member of a group of professional travel consultants - Nexion Travel Group (Canada), as well as, the Association of Canadian Travel Agents.  I hold several certifications and have specialized training for many countries, hotels/resorts, and tours all around the world.  all the latest possibilities in traveling and booking. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta, and I couldn't be happier with my role as a travel agent. With years of experience in the industry plus a true love for all-things travel, I'm ready to create your next incredible vacation today!

A real gem
Having had experience with Laurie Ross with my travel plans over the last couple of years I feel the need to share my gem. I talk little about what I don't like and talk a lot about what I do. Laurie has been so helpful and knowledgable about each trip I have booked. In the era of the Internet she has been a breath of fresh air and I would not only use her to book my trips, I would hire her if I were to own a business. Enjoy

looking into different travel spots
I travel with family and Laurie has been so helpful and very quick at getting back to me with answers to questions . It is not always easy when making trip plans that please many people on the same trip but Laurie goes above and beyond to help. I have not booked with Laurie yet but will when it works out and we are not booking with points. She is very pleasant young lady and I look forward to booking with her

Family vacation
Laurie was instrumental in planning our family Discney Cruise. 4 of us were in Alberta and 4 in Ontario. Putting the two together was great. Our cabins were linked. We had dinner together and she gave us many tips on one if our port stops. With her expertise she made our vacation great as the families only get together every 5 or 6 years. Job well done

Leaving April 13. We are super excited.
Laurie , you made it so simple for all of us. Thank you for your patience with me. I never felt like I was a bother even though I’m sure I was. You just made me feel like nothing was a problem with me contacting you all the time.
