What I like the most about river cruising is the unique and boutique experience that they have to offer. They have all of the benefits of a larger ocean-going cruise ship, but with a more intimate feel. Also, the best part about river cruising is that you pull up to a city and step off the ship and you are there! Since rivers were the artery for trade, culture, and communication throughout many parts of the world, therefore towns and major cities were built right up to the river. You can stay in town or go back the ship easily.
While having over 15 years of Travel Counselor experiences, which include destination experience that goes beyond just the basic travel book knowledge. I have been on several river cruises in France, Germany, and Amsterdam. I love being able to immerse myself in the culture of a country by going to several unique cities. Each city has its flavor and national identity. And the bonus that makes this all so great is that you don’t have to unpack again once you board the ship! You get daily tours, there are extra tours available, the food is amazing and every year they include more and more amenities. It is so great to get to know the shipboard staff too. It adds to the overall quality of service and fun. They get to know you; they treat you like valued guests and not someone just passing through. You feel the excitement, the awe, as everyone is awaiting their adventure. As an insider, I’ll provide you with the itinerary to match your needs.

I love exploring the off the beaten path of Australia. I take every opportunity to meet and get to know the locals and see how they live and what makes their town special. Meeting strangers and becoming friends is easy in Australia, with the friendly and outgoing nature of the locals and exploring the Great Barrier Reef, horseback riding in the Daintree Forest, and even white water rafting cannot be beaten!
