About Us

Elena Zizza, Owner of Modern Tourist

Modern Tourist is a fashionable travel boutique that specializes in high quality travel gear and leather goods.  After working in the industry for many years, I decided to open my own luggage and travel store. Modern Tourist is located in the gorgeous historic downtown of Guelph, Ontario. I am a member of the Canadian Luggage and Leather Goods Dealers Association. CLLDA prides itself on quality, not quantity and that’s a guarantee! 

Our luggage store is filled with an alluring variety of unique brands from all across the globe. I’m constantly researching new travel trends and essentials to stay fashionable for the travelling customer and the everyday consumer, making Modern Tourist the perfect one-stop shopping destination! We carry the latest styles, trends, colors and looks that capture every season offering fashionable, classic, casual and functional products, including Briggs & Riley, Samsonite, Herschel, Derek Alexander, Fjallraven, Fossil, Secrid, LUG and many more. Categories offered include luggage, bags, backpacks, briefcases, handbags, wallets, accessories and apparel.

Come check out our store at 1 Quebec St., Guelph, ON, we would love to see you. We sincerely hope you’ll enjoy everything Modern!
