River Cruise Travel Expert

For almost 45 years, I have been helping travelers discover new places and meet new people around the world. Beginning my career long before technology and the Internet revolutionized the industry, I understand the foundations of the travel industry and I pride myself on the fact that I offer my clients an unparalleled commitment to customer service.

I like to describe myself as a top notch tourist. Before I go to any new country, or before I send my clients to a new destination, I take the time to research the area and learn about the local customs. I like my travelers to be informed visitors who can acclimate to the new culture quickly and immerse themselves in the destination.

My favorite types of vacations to book include:

  • River Cruises — I am passionate about river cruises because these cruises take travelers through the heart of a destination. European river cruises are becoming increasingly popular, and are a unique way to experience the history of Europe.
  • U.S. Tours — I have traveled to 42 different U.S. states, including Alaska and Hawaii. I love to introduce travelers to the beauty of this country, and uncover hidden gems that they may not have realized were there.

Given my years of experience, I have helped my clients work through many different types of challenges while they are away. The worst hiccup to deal with is airline cancellations, because these changes can have a huge impact on the overall itinerary. However, I believe that being honest about the possibility of cancellations and working tirelessly to prevent them, I help my travelers make the best decisions for their upcoming vacations.I'm not going to just book a vacation for you.

I'm going to prepare you for the trip of a lifetime. Now is the best time to get started. Contact me today.
