Valerie Lederle

Colleyville, Texas Travel Agent

River Cruise Specialist


River Cruising has become extremely popular in the last several years, having grown from a just a few vessels to entire fleets literally around the world. It's cruising, yes, but it's very different from the ocean cruising that most people are familiar with. Seeing a destination by river provides an entirely different perspective, and indeed, many places not accessible at all by ocean cruise can easily be explored river cruise.

Luxurious accommodations, delicious food, and sightseeing excursions that are included in the price are some of the things people love about river cruising. You can explore the world in comfort on a river cruise. It's just a matter of deciding what is most interesting to you and what most appeals to you. I can help you decide on which river, which itinerary and more.

My Danube River cruise was fascinating as we travelled from Germany to Hungary past vine covered hills.

Christmas Markets on the Rhein

My Rhine River Christmas Market cruise allowed me to explore great cities on foot since the Riverboat is within walking distance to many places. You can just walk off the boat and be surrounded by snow covered scenes of a typical European city. If you go during the Christmas ... Read more from my Christmas Markets on the Rhein story.

Vietnam and Cambodia

Reviewed By Jackie - COLLEYVILLE | Traveled to Vietnam ~ East and Southeast Asia
Valerie always takes the time and energy required to make sure we are happy with our travel choices. She goes beyond the required effort to take care of us. She has come to our rescue many times, has booked many wonderful vacations and I have recommended her to many friends who always report back with glowing reviews on their experience with her.

She never loses her patience with us and we have tested that. I have used Valerie for 15 years and she continues to treat me like a valued customer.

She is GREAT

Love her

The Most Memorable Cruise of our lives!!

Reviewed By YoLynnYo - Hurst, TX | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Valerie was exceptional to say the least! Besides guiding us for months of intensive planning for our 50th anniversary cruise, with 17 other family members (children and grand children), she came to our rescue at the dock in Seattle. My wife had been sick and the cruise line actually took our luggage off of the ship, and were cancelling our year-long planned cruise. However, with Valerie's incredible voracity, she found our doctor in Fort Worth (on a late Friday afternoon) and got him directly in phone contact with cruise ship doctor, resulting in our being able to take the cruise with the rest of family. It was the most stressful 4 hours of our lives, but we got to take the cruise with our family.

She was just so helpful as we planned the cruise and travel to and from, and gave us excellent advice and service. We were overwhelmed with her ability to assist us at every point and with every question!

Greatest Travel Agent every

She not only plans everything but also recommends things we would never think about or knew about.
Valerie, planned our 30th anniversary trip to England,France,Scotland and Ireland. We were gone for 20 days and it all went off with out a hitch. She walked us through everything and gave us a detailed account of everything. It was like having our own private guide.
We are planing a trip to Italy in spring and would only have Valerie help us.

Trips of a Lifetime

Reviewed By Tim B. - Hurst, TX | Traveled to Scotland ~ Europe
We currently have our third and fourth trips in the planning stages with Valerie. She has proven to be an extremely valuable resource in planning our trips. She has guided us through travel to Australia and the United Kingdom and her wisdom and advise is beyond compare. The two trips were trips of a lifetime and we are really looking forward to what she has in store for us with a Christmas cruise on the Danube in December and an anniversary cruise next August. Thank you Valerie for your assistance and diligence.

The Dream Trip of our lives!!

Reviewed By Karen and Tim - Chanhassen, Minnesota | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
Valerie was an amazing travel agent from the first stages of planning our trip to France, to the details of choices on what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go, guiding us with her expert advice and giving us suggestions and ideas, to some incredible recommendations she had for us as she had lived in France for 5 years. She was invaluable to my husband and I, and our trip was at a whole other level because of her. I would recommend her to anyone, and have actually recommended her to friends for the future as they are planning trips. She was always attentive to my phone calls, input, and questions. I couldn't have asked for more in a travel agent, and will definitely ask Valerie's help for future destinations! I loved Valerie!

Wonderful to work with

Reviewed By Stukat - Colleyville Texas | Traveled to Hawaii Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Valerie has assisted my family for several years on multiple cruises as well as land vacations. I have found her to be one of the most capable and knowledgeable agents I have used.
I have been in the commercial sales and design business for over 25 years and have employed and trained many associates over that time. What I have found is that an individual such as Valerie is a rare commodity indeed! Valerie is fun and pleasant to be associated with as well as understanding her clients needs and has the expertise to customize our vacations making the overall experience as trouble free and memorable as possible. What more could a client ask for?
I have recommended Valerie to several friends and relatives that did in fact book through her and have never heard anything other than positive feedback afterwards.

Thank you for providing a business with outstanding personnel.

Best Travel Agent Ever!

Reviewed By Kathy S - North Richland Hills TX | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Valerie is extremely helpful when it comes to planning vacations. We have used her several times over the years. Not only is she a wealth of knowledge, she is a lot of fun to work with, thus making the experience enjoyable and hassel free. She always finds the best pricing - I've tried to do the research myself, to make sure we have the best deal, but she has proven time and again I cannot beat the pricing she gets for us. We have used Valerie for many years now and she has worked with many family members and friends, always assisting in a friendly and professional manner. Even when it comes to coordinating with other family members out of state, she does it with a smile! Land or sea, small or large, she is the best travel agent you can find - don't waste your time looking any further!
