Ellie Carolus

Fort Wayne, Indiana Travel Agent

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.

Ellie was so patient with us as we tried to figure out where we wanted to go. She promptly responded to our questions and readily sent cost estimates.

We ended up getting a great price on and airfare and car rental package and she was a great help in booking our hotels and sights along the way.

The most magical honeymoon anyone could ask for!

Reviewed By Alyssa - Fort Wayne, IN | Traveled to Bali ~ Indonesia ~ East and Southeast Asia
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!!

Reviewed By Hattie and Ramsey - College Station, Texas | Traveled to Zurich ~ Switzerland ~ Europe
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.
