I have traveled with Shelley for over 10 years now and there is nothing I can say negative. She plans the best, well organized trips with all our needs in mind. She is there to help when things go wrong (rarely) and is always willing and able to get the problem resolved I have met and made many friends travelling with her and plan to continue doing do. Whether you are a lady on your own, or a couple, you can't go wrong planning a trip with Shelley.
I have done 4 trips with Shelley so far, with 3 more booked. All very different but fabulous including a bucket list safari. No glitches with arrangements, terrific accommodations and fun and informative extras included. As a single traveler, I love the group atmosphere and feel so safe and taken care of. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
“Tuscany villa” was my first trip with Shelley & my best trip ever. The villa, pool and grounds were gorgeous and the chef prepared dinners a daily delight. The itinerary was varied a great mix of touring, shopping, spa, cooking class, city tour & countryside. The group was well looked after from airport pick up to wine tasting and farewell dinner. Shelley booked hotels for us and both hotels were lovely, perfectly located and at a good price. A wonderful way to travel and vacation. Linda E.
I have enjoyed several trips with Shelley since 2012. She organizes unusual sight seeing activities, top-notch yet unique accommodations and interesting meal excursions.
Always available by phone or email, she readily answers any queries/concerns you may have.
Join us for fun times meeting interesting fellow travelers and exploring new lands !
Tuscany Villa Retreat 2018
Your trip was just over the top amazing. Your choice of partnering with Mikael and Kevin was just the icing on the cake. It was not JUST the awe-inspiring Tuscany vistas, or the jaw dropping villa, it was the people who made this trip unforgettable, you, Mikael and Kevin.
The unexpected joy of this trip was discovering new kinships with like minded women and sharing their stories.
You, Mikael and Kevin ensured an endearing level of love, warmth and support in our dreamy Tuscany experience, to be held forever in our hearts !

For the past 14 years, Shelley Pfeifer of Funseekers.ca has been my go-to travel consultant. That’s for a good reason — she’s the best! I’ve traveled to many beautiful countries with her and enjoyed many adventures along the way.
Most recently, I was fortunate to join Shelley on the ladies’ retreat at a beautiful villa in Tuscany—an over-the-top experience! Shelley and her dream team of Mikael and Chef Kevin of Art in Voyage, treated us like royalty, all the while going out of their way to look after the countless details of every day’s itinerary. Our meals were exquisite and often a surprise, as Chef Kevin would decide at the market that day what the specialty for dinner would be. Mikael would surprise us with little treats such as gourmet chocolate in mid afternoon and stocking the fridge with beer one scorching hot day. After our 3- to 4-hour tours of such beautiful cities as Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano, Montepulciano and the picnic and spa day, we’d return home to the villa (yes, it felt like home!) and spend a couple of hours at the infinity pool. So refreshing and relaxing—definitely a highlight for me! Then prosecco and hors d’oeuvres on the terrace until sunset when we were called by the chef to a wonderful dinner under the canopy. Not too hard to take! It was so much fun spending time with Shelley and all the girls I met on the trip. I’ll always remember the good laughs during our dinner conversations, the crazy antics at the pool, and the impromptu dance party before dinner.
All in all, it was an incredible and unforgettable experience!
Thank you, Shelley, for another awesome trip!
I've been travelling with Shelley for a number of years now & couldn't imagine travelling with anyone else. From the time you book until you return home she looks after every detail of hotels, meals, tickets to venues and all inter county flights, trains & buses. She's highly organized & very capable of working out any unforeseen problems. Your only duty is to show up on time & don't forget your Passport!
Tuscan Villa Retreat 2018- This was my first trip to Europe and I completely loved it – would not change a thing. The villa was not only beautiful but very adaptable to our needs (12 women) and comfortable. I took photos of my room because I knew my friends and family would not believe me. And the food and wine – it’s a good thing we did lots of walking. I also have to mention the villa staff – the chefs and kitchen helpers, the cleaners and grounds staff, and of course, our two handsome drivers – wonderful people. Jane H.
For the past ten years I have had the opportunity to travel thanks to Solo Amigos.
Shelley's attention to detail has made the trips very relaxed and enjoyable.
I have experienced Hong Kong, Bali, Costa Rica and Italy; as well as enjoyed many winter getaways to tropical destinations. I have no hesitation in recommending this group to anyone who wants to see the world and make new friends.
"My experiences with Funseekers travel have been nothing but exceptional. I have taken more than 8 trips organized by Shelley, all around the world, and each one has been well organized, with a nice balance between planned itinerary and free time, with excellent accommodation and a terrific group to share your trip with. If you are looking for a great travel experience, without having to worry about arranging any of the details of that travel, Funseekers is for you! "
I have traveled with Shelley on several occasions, both on ladies only trips and "solo amigo"trips.
Shelley's excursions are always well balanced and organized, taking advantage of the destinations "must see" spots, and also providing down time for shopping, etc. The warm beach destinations are understandably a little less formal, allowing for lots of beach/pool time.
The accommodations are always top notch, in great locations.
Into every tour a little rain occasionally falls, and when mishaps do happen Shelley goes out of her way to arrange emergency flights home, get people to pharmacies, doctors, or hospitals if need be, dealing with lost credit credit cards, and every other upset or emergency you can imagine.
I certainly endorse Shelley, as a travel agent for tour groups, and single person/family travel. I've never dealt with a better travel agent.
Tuscany 2018- The 12-Women Only Tour in September, 2018 was simply amazing!! It was everything I could ever imagine. The villa was wonderful, the grounds were immaculate, the meals were delicious, the ambiance was fabulous, and the 'wine flowed' constantly. We were catered to by Shelley, Mikael, and Phil. What a fantastic trio!!! I certainly would travel with Funseekers again!! Thanks for a fantastic and memorable voyage! Pauline P
Tuscany is so beautiful in the fall. Travelling with Funseekers means that all the worries are taken care of by someone else. The day plans are flexible with the right balance of group activities and time to explore on your own or with a few like minded friends. Returning to the villa after a day of visiting wonderful towns and cities means unpacking once and then feeling at home. I was amazed that the food tastes so good could also be healthy. I could go on but will stop now.
Tuscany 2018 was my first trip with Shelley. It was a dream trip from planning to arriving home – beyond expectations! The villa was everything you would imagine and if it wasn’t, Shelley did her best to make it right. The chef-prepared meals were exceptional, providing variety and wonderful flavours. The activities and excursions facilitated by Art in Voyage were interesting and fun. Art in Voyage was responsive to the group’s needs and was able to change plans in order to accommodate.
The ladies in the group were fabulous. Sharing wonderful food, wine, and stories at the beautiful outdoor dining table was a true delight!
Thank you, Shelley, for everything including helping us plan our additional time in Rome and the Amalfi Coast.
I look forward to travelling with Shelley in the future – only problem is I can’t decide which trip to choose! Shirley J.
"I have travelled with Shelley's winter groups for many years and have always appreciated the level of service from her. She always finds fabulous places to take us, and all our needs are well looked after. Shelley makes all the dinner reservations for us and helps plan optional tours. It's nice to go away and have no worries!
"Traveling with Shelley is worry free. She knows the all best places and the price is right. I'm looking forward to my next trip!"
