River Cruises and Foodie Vacations


Cruising doesn’t need to be restricted to a coastline. River cruises can take you through inland Europe, Asia, and other destinations with all the comfort and convenience of a luxury ship. No sea days means you can jam pack your itinerary full of active shore excursions – typically included in the price – and getting off the megaship Caribbean routes will often afford you a more intimate experience on a smaller boat.

Europe has a plethora of river cruises to choose from. You could travel from Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine, passing through Germany’s best wine region. Perhaps you’ve always dreamt of visiting France – the Seine, the Loire, and the Rhone are all excellent options. Want to go a little further off the beaten path? Consider exploring Portugal’s Douro region in-depth, or cover a lot of ground on the Danube, which could include stops in Munich, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Budapest, Hungary; or even Bucharest, Romania.

Several major cruise lines offer river cruise itineraries, but my favorites to work with are AmaWaterways, Tauck River Cruises and Viking. Viking is probably the biggest household name in river cruises and caters to experienced travelers with a special interest in geography, history, and culture.  They boast comfortable ships, but for unbridled luxury, there’s no beating of Tauck River Cruises and AmaWaterways.

Between foreign delicacies and different customs and table etiquette, food can be an excellent window into a new culture. What holiday doesn’t include at least one special meal of a local delicacy? There can be so much more to a culinary holiday than a gourmet meal though.

Foodies often love discovering local markets. Sipping on a fresh squeezed juice as you wander the stalls of the Mercado do Boqueria is a quintessential Barcelona experience. In Peru, you might prefer to learn about the country’s many exotic fruits, like granadilla or lucuma. Markets are also frequently the starting point of local cooking classes. Recipes make wonderful souvenirs and learning how to cook can bring you closer to locals and to fellow travelers. You might make your own pasta in Italy or sling together a stir fry in Thailand.

There are also many specialty food tours, both in single day walking tours and multi-day excursions through an entire region. On these, experienced and knowledgeable local guides can connect you to all your destination’s delicacies and culinary history.Paris will always have a special place in every gourmand’s heart, but you don’t need to travel far for an excellent food-focused holiday. New York is as renowned a restaurant destination as any. And for specialty cuisine, the Cajun and Creole spices New Orleans are hard to beat.

Viaggio Straordinario - Outstanding Trip

Reviewed By Michelle - Fairfax, Va. | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Our experience working with Inna was outstanding! Inna is professional, knowledgeable, flexible, and patient. She provided excellent service and made us feel valued as clients. She personalized our trip based on general travel plans and ultimately created an itinerary for our family that included some tightly structured activities (skip the line tours) and lots of time for exploring Italy. Inna was always available to answer our questions and offer solutions. I plan to work with Inna in the future and would highly recommend her to others!

Fabulous time celebrating our 50th anniversary!

Reviewed By Connie G. - Leesburg, VA | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
Hi Inna. We are home from Aruba, and just wanted you to know that we had a fabulous time celebrating our 50th anniversary!
Our flights worked out very well, and the Marriott was the perfect place for our stay. We had a very nice room overlooking the ocean and pool and the service could not have been better. Everyone at the resort was lovely and so accommodating to the guests.
Thank you for making our trip so special, and we will be in touch with you as we are planning to return in 2017!

An excellent travel professional for all yor needs

Reviewed By Phil - Fairfax Station, Virginia | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Inna has been our travel agent for many years and has helped us plan multiple trips. She has great ideas and always gets the best deals suitable to our interests. Not only does she get good deals, she monitors your travel progress while on vacation. Once in Ireland our flight was cancelled and she scheduled a new reservation while we were traveling to the airport. When we arrived at the airport some 200+ travelers were scrambling to get on other flights and it was chaos. We checked in, were told that someone had re scheduled us on another flight which got us home about the same time were originally scheduled. Other travelers had to make hotel arrangement and wait another day. Other friends traveling with us were impressed and mentioned that they told friends of that experience and were going to use Inna in the future.

Inna is the Best Travel Agent

Reviewed By Olya - Fairfax, VA | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
Inna has been working with my parents for many years and I heard nothing but great things about Inna from them. So, this year, after spending countless hours on various websites and trying to find best deals, I decided to contact Inna. Needless to say that I was pleasantly surprised that the deals she offered to us were much better deals I could ever find myself. In addition to that, she gave me a lot of useful tips and heads up before our trip, and, because of her expertise, could easily answer all the questions I had (and trust me, I had A-L-O-T of questions)! I have been recommending Inna to all of my friends since I booked my trip with her because I know she will take a great care of them and find the best possible deals!

Great trip

Reviewed By Alexander - CENTREVILLE | Traveled to Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I am always truly impressed with the work of our travel agent Inna Parker, with her attention to each detail of the trip she is offering and constant availability to help us if needed. Without her we would have never discovered the amazing quality and location of very nice and comfortable hotels and resorts both in the USA and overseas.

Her knowledge of interesting places, restaurants, beaches, day trips, etc. always helps to get the best from our vacations with very memorable experience.

Inna is one of the best travel agents we’ve ever met. Her expertise, great attitude, exceptional interpersonal skills guarantee the best planned trip adjusted to all your special wishes.
