|About Josey's Journeys
Year after year someone always asked me why I worked for someone else and was told I should start my own company so in 2007 I did and Josey's Journeys was born.
Hello, my name is Karen Josey and over the past 22 years I have had the pleasure of touring from Newfoundland to British Columbia in Canada and Boston,Cape Cod, Washington, New York, Nashville, Branson & all points in between in the United States. Personally I have traveled to over 30 states, cruised the Carribean & the Medeterranin extensively. I've flown, bused and travelled by train accross Canada with both Canadian and American guests.
I have also had the opportunity of showing off Canada by sea. Cruising out of Montreal to Boston on Holland America with international guests. It was a wonderful experience being able to sail into all the ports I previously had toured in and the best was sailing into my home port Halifax. I have also been lucky enough to take International travelers on tours throughout what I call "my little corner of the world" Atlantic Canada. Sharing with them our, history, culture, beautiful scenery and of course our hospitality.
When you ask me to plan & escort a trip you will have a quality product at a reasonable price as well as "Travel with a Personal Touch".

I was asked to submit ideas for tours and bid for the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials along with other Halifax companys to offer tours for "Roar of the Rings' the Canadian Olympic Curling Trials held in Halifax.
