JUST ANNOUNCED....2020 RIVER CRUISES!  And FREE AIRFARE for a limited time!

We recently returned from an incredible 11-day river cruise on the Rhine and spent Easter surrounded by the beauty of Keukenhof Gardens.  The feedback was wonderful and if you missed out this year, you have another chance!  We are delighted to once again offer Tulip Time on Jewels of the Rhine River Cruise in April 2020.  And since the tour falls over the Easter holiday, Fr. Robert Weber will be traveling on this cruise and will offer Easter mass for our travelers!  What a special way to celebrate spring.  Make plans now and save with FREE AIRFARE when reservations are made before August 31, 2019.

Have you traveled the Rhine and want something different?  Then join us in August 2020 for Danube Delights and visit 5 countries on this 11-day River Cruise Holiday.  Again, plan early to get your preference of cabin and save!  FREE AIRFARE on this tour when reservations are made before July 31, 2019.  

(We are excited to be offering these River Cruise tours in conjunction with Mayflower Cruises and Tours)
