Why River Cruising?

River Cruising is becoming a very popular form of travel and not just for those that are 50+.


One of the nicest things is that you unpack once and leisurely sail through multiple destinations. The ports are smaller quaint towns that are not offered on ocean cruises.


You are very close to the city when in port which gives you the opportunity to easily to do your one thing. There are plenty of tours included in each port and the paid tours offered are exquisite. It's my job to help you find the right one to chose based on your interests and desires.


On board there were no children, even though they are allowed. This form of travel is perfect for adults looking to escape and experience the local culture.


The food aboard is regional specific, but they do have steak and chicken available daily. The breakfast offered was buffet, but there was also an additional dining option, but no speciality dining like on an ocean cruise.


There is plenty of entertainment on board game nights, musical performances, miniature golf, short productions, guest lecturers from local regions, and there was even a glass blower.


The accommodations are fantastic, but a standard room is not very large. I highly suggest upgrading to a balcony to get extra space and a better view. A favorite featured for me was the heated floors in my bathroom.


When you're ready for a River Cruise give me a call and we will find the perfect itinerary for YOU!

Amazing family adventures!
My husband & I have historically booked trips on our own - until the family was planning a trip to Italy. Beth was recommended to us by one of our family members. She was instrumental in making sure that not only our travel arrangements were planned perfectly, but also arranged tours and gave insight into places that were a "must see." She consistently took into account our traveling "style" to ensure an amazing trip! We have since used Beth's services for trips to Belize and St. Lucia. Again, top notch in all aspects of our trips!! We would (and have) recommend Beth to our friends and family.

It was fantastic
Friends of ours recommended Beth and we are very happy they did. She did a wonderful job for us. We never had to worry about our hotels (which were great), our luggage, our bus or train tickets or anything else. Beth went above and beyond what we were expecting and I have recommended her to others already.

Beyond amazing!
Berg was great and patient with us . We were going back and forth on many areas. She informed us on ways to save money and was there with any last minute changes. She was great to work with.
