Nexus Spreads Its Wings

Nexus Holidays is clearly broadening its base.

The company, which began by sending clients to China, now offers a number of Asian destinations, among them Korea, Thailand, India and Vietnam, and also has moved beyond Asia with its Volga River cruise in Russia.

The company held a Toronto event Wednesday night that’s one of eight Canada-wide road shows, with company assistant general manager Angela Chen reporting that Nexus – in North America since 1996 – now has 15 offices worldwide and “over 500 travel professionals.”

Chen said travel to Asia years ago could easily amount to spending $5,000 but “now it’s very affordable.”

Nexus offers packages, FIT and private travel, and works with the likes of groups, students and those interested in nature and religious travel, she said.

She said her employer also has an independent quality control department that randomly contacts clients and asks them if they’re satisfied with the likes of their guides, meals and vehicles.
She added Nexus sets aside some of the money it earns to help with the likes of schooling in China. “This is a company with a warm heart.”

Seen at last night’s event are (l-r) John Park of the Korea Tourism Organization; Danna Guo of Nexus Holidays; Chen; Maurice Heroux of Hainan Airlines; and Milka Cook and David Pierce of Collacutt Travel.
