Experience authentic interactions with local culture every time you step onshore, along with farm-to-table gourmet cuisine, and personal service. River cruising is ideal for singles, couples and small groups.

We have been working with Lyndee Campbell for most of our cruising life...since 2003. She has always been so knowledgeable about everywhere we wanted to go and on occasion, when something becomes too complicated for us to handle, she has been there to straighten out the kinks.
Senior Cruisers J & B  — Glendora, CA
Anne Nebenzahl was a traveler's dream. She listened well, planned effectively, and responded to any and all needs promptly and patiently. She made our dream of Antarctica come true.
Lois W.  — Fairport, NY

We had an incredible time; it was perhaps the best trip we have ever taken, really. Everything went as planned. We loved every single minute—the hotels, guides and flights were all wonderful, and the boat was unbelievable—it was altogether perfect! Thank you so much Birgitt Pajarola for all your help and advice!

Susan & Parker Boal  — New Jersey
Cathy Brooks-Oliver has made traveling easy. Her recommendations and planning is always superb. Cathy planning is detailed from start to finish. She is clearly an experienced traveler with a vast knowledge of travel locations, options, optimal dates, and programs. She had never let us down. It’s alway the best! Our most recent vacation was a Mediterranean Cruise. It was the best recommendation, anniversary and vacation ever.

Thank you so much June Kleier for making our New Year’s Paul Gauguin Cruise in Tahiti so fabulous. You managed every detail for a relaxing and fun experience. This is our third trip organized by June and I would give 6 stars if I could!

Kathy Tolchinsky was simply amazing!! We have been on cruises before and had done the planning ourselves which was always a disaster. Kathy made it easy and fun!! She helped with every aspect of our Alaska cruise from beginning to end!! We just had to show up!!!

Melissa  — Palm Beach Gardens, Fl

In planning a very special trip, we used a travel agent for the first time, and Shani LaPlume was outstanding. She helped plan, organize, schedule and book an amazing 3 week trip through France and Italy, land and a river cruise. For us having never been to either country, we relied on Shani to guide us with the best hotels, transfers, tours and tickets. She did an amazing job which made our trip even more special! Can't wait to book the next trip with her help.

Jen Lewis  — Phoenix, AZ
Janice Chieffo has been instrumental in helping me plan my travel. I have traveled all over the world, and her knowledge and experience has made for incredible trips. She customizes everything down to the last detail, taking into account all of our travelers needs and desires. She is the first person I go to when even considering if I should travel to a location. My elderly mother had just had surgery and we wanted a mom/daughter trip of a lifetime. Janice sat down with me and planned the most perfect small ship cruise in the Footsteps of Lewis and Clark. The trip was perfect for us, as we had personalized service, five star food and drink, and amazing offshore excursions. It really was one of my favorite trips with my mom.
R. Cianfrani  — North Tustin, CA
I love working with Christie Bednar. Just about every trip I take begins with her. She is informed, she’s travels a lot so she has personal thoughts on where I might go. She know the cruise and airline companies and steers me to the right company for me and my budget. She is thorough with all the details too so when I travel nothing goes wrong and if it should I have no doubt she will work until it is fixed.
Glynis Morse  — Leander, TX
I have used Shelly Bunge for two amazing travel trips. One to the Arctic and one to Loreto, Mexico. I highly recommend her services. She is awesome! The recommendations, attention to detail and response time to all my questions is incredible. She is my go to person for booking my dream trips! Not only has she seen so many places in the world, she also has the best taste! I know she would never steer me wrong with travel plans.
