Donna Canaie

Madison, Wisconsin Travel Agent

Leisure Travel Consultant

As a leisure travel specialist, I enjoy providing great customer service, with a smile, and will treat your trip like it is my own. I am a native of Colorado but I now call Madison my home. As a youth, I lived in Haifa, Israel and Canada.  In the States. I have lived in Michigan, California, Maryland, Washington DC and Colorado. I have travelled to Europe multiple times visiting London, Paris, Amsterdam, Vienna, Norway and Sweden. My most recent European trip was an Avalon river cruise with a 3-Night (Monograms) extension - ask me about it, I loved it!

I have also had the pleasure of spending time in Indonesia, China, Singapore and the island country of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean. My second language is Persian (Farsi). I am, also, learning Mandarin Chinese and Korean.  I look forward to meeting you and taking care of all your travel needs!

Donna assisted three of us with plans and arranements for an Avalon river cruise. She had encouraged us to take out insurance which we ended up needing to use, due to my unexpected illness. She assisted us
with all those reimbursements and then, robooking when we were ready, a year later. Everything went very well! Donna has also helped me with some international travel including arrangemens for “wheelchair assistance.”
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Italy & Amsterdam

Reviewed By Jane - Madison WI | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Great! The documents came really late, but that might have been our fault for booking so late? The one thing we were really disappointed with was the City Tour in Amsterdam. Half of the trip was to a "diamond factory", which really was a diamond STORE, where they tried to sell us diamond jewelry. Very disappointing.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Donna Canaie responded:
Thank you for your feedback. Yes, the documents were mailed late, since we added, last minute, tours. The electronic documents are, always, sufficient though. * I had this, same, type of experience in China however, I enjoyed it and purchased some very unique and beautiful pearls however, I knew that it would be a "store" experience. I will share your comments, with our tour vendor, so that they can, hopefully, change their approach. * I'm very glad you enjoyed Italy! - Donna C.

A first time new experience!

Reviewed By J & P - Sun Prairie, WI | Traveled to Honduras ~ Central America
Donna Canaie is a wealth of knowledge! She was very patient with us since we changed our minds several times as to where we wanted to go. Emails and phone calls do not do justice to actually meeting Donna in person. She is wonderful!

Everything for our cruise to the Western Carribean fell into place from flight to pick-up and drop off service.

Norwegian Cruise Line was exceptional from the food to the service. The crew were very friendly.

We met people in ports from other cruise lines Carnival and Mediterranean - they were not satisfied with their cruise accomodations and their crew.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Donna Canaie responded:

Excellent travel agent

Reviewed By Mary - New York, NY | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Donna Canaie was a wonderful travel agent for u!. She was responsive and helpful at every turn. We had 2 separate incidences that she was especially helpful in: we had to cancel our trip because of illness and she made every step of that easy. When we re-scheduled the following year, she intervened with the hotel in Paris that did not honor its' contract with us and helped to get us a rebate. She went above and beyond what might be required or expected of a travel agent. Thank you, Donna!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Donna Canaie responded:
Thank you, Mary. I'm so glad that you were able to, still, go on the river cruise. They are a wonderful mode of transportation. I am, always, happy to "go to bat" for my clients. Please reach out to me, any time. Donna C.
