TPI Dieppe is a boutique travel service provider specializing in escorted group travel and river cruises. Focused on travel experience and consumer intimacy, the travel packages are carefully selected to make our customer’s vacation as memorable as possible. The river cruise and ocean cruise provide maximum culture exposure and the discovery of multiple cities and countries while going back to your state room every evening.
While the river cruises are more intimate and serene on calm inland waters the high seas cruise ships provide high levels of entertainment for those who prefer high energy non-stop fun. All our groups are escorted by Claude Bourgeois to guide you on the ground and makes sure you get the most out of your stress-free vacation while avoiding all the tourists downfalls.
Claude Bourgeois CTM
Claude Bourgeois , Claude started his travel professional career early on with his first job for an Atlantic bus company S.M.T. who offered chartered services, while attending NBCC college in 1988 in Travel & Tourism. In 1989, he moved to Toronto to work with Air Canada at Pearson Airport as a customer sales and service agent. His Air Canada career, from 1989 to 2001 brought him to live in five cities including Toronto, Halifax, Vancouver, Montreal and then Moncton. This is really where he had the chance to travel and visit as many countries as possible while being very passionate about his job, as a matter a fact he was awarded a prestigious employee of the year with Air Canada in 1993.
Following the amalgamation of both Air Canada and Canadian Airlines in 2001 he decided to leave the airline and open his first travel Agency with a retired Air Canada employee called (Selectours). In 2002 he received his CTM (Certified Travel Manager) certification with CITC. With a specialty in group travel, the agency was purchased in 2007 by CWT Harveys Travel group and he became the Groups Manager for Atlantic Canada till 2009. Claude has also served as a board member of the Atlantic region ACTA for several years and has been an long time member of the Rotary Club of Dieppe.
He realized he missed being his own boss and decided to join the TPI (Travel Professional International) group in 2009 as an independent travel affiliate. He opened a new retail office (Voyages Dieppe Travel) and operated a very successful travel agency with a specialty in group travel and have been on the “Chairman’s Circle” as one of the top performing affiliates in Canada for the last three years. In September 2015, he decided his real passion and focus is by offering exclusively Escorted group travel and river cruises while still being affiliated with the TPI Group.
