Using Hub Cities to See Europe Smartly

[From RediscoverEurope.com, my website.] Over many years and many trips to Europe, I’ve learned how important pace is to a great trip. There’s always the temptation to cram in as much as possible, staying only a night or two in one place before moving on to the next. Resist this urge....

Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany, is simply one of Europe’s most beautiful small towns. Its medieval, walled old town hides a scenic moment around every corner. [And the ‘ob der Tauber’ of its name means ‘on the Tauber River,’ which skirts the old town.]It’s not super-easy to get... Read more from my Rothenburg ob der Tauber story.

Detailed, knowledgeable advice for perfect trips!

Reviewed By Tina - Tulsa, Oklahoma | Traveled to Amsterdam ~ Netherlands ~ Europe
When it comes to European travel, Beau is the most knowledgeable person I know. I’ve trusted his - very thorough! - recommendations for years as I explored Vienna, Amsterdam, Dublin, Brussels, and London.

Thanks to his advice, I’ve been to some of the best restaurants and museums - and avoided the over-hyped tourist spots.

I definitely recommend taking advantage of Beau’s expertise for your European travels.

Beau told me the highlight of his last Amsterdam trip was a side-trip out to Haarlem and a walk through the Corrie Ten Boom House. I’d never have discovered it otherwise, and the presentation was both moving and educational.

I almost skipped the Foodhallen, thinking it might be a bit crowded. But Beau told me to go and recommended various food stalls - my tastebuds were extremely glad he did!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
William "Beau" Black III responded:
Glad I was able to help--I loooooved that Corrie Ten Boom House. Glad you got to experience it, the Foodhallen, and more on your trip. Holler at me when you're ready to travel again!

Exactly what we needed!

Beau is wonderful to work with. Great communication. He sent pertinent articles to us along the way, especially about the mask mandate.

Successful bucket list trip

Reviewed By Professor Curly - Weatherford, TX | Traveled to New York (La Guardia) ~ New York ~ USA
Beau was an excellent agent! He took the time to narrow down several hotels, providing tips on which hotels best fit our budget along with the most advantageous location. Both hotels were wonderful. He not only answered or questions and provided tips, but he also contacted us at each leg of our trip to ensure that things were going well and to inquire if we needed any assistance. An absolute pleasure to know he was taking such an interest in how our vacation was unfolding. The itinerary he crafted for our family was perfect!

Shannon--so glad you and your family had fun on your trip, that the hotels were just right, and that we were able to work together again. Always here to help.

Our best Mexico trip yet!

Reviewed By Dan - Fort Worth, Texas | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Beau is a wealth of knowledge. He has so many great contacts in the Riviera Maya region. He’s super easy to work with and very responsive. His personal relationship with our resort manager made our accommodations extra special! We would never have received the added benefits and attention if we had gone through one of the typical “big” online services.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
William "Beau" Black III responded:
So very glad you had a good time with your family in Mexico--and glad my contacts there were able to get you just the right room. Let me know when you're ready to plan the next one!

Not just a vacation but a lifetime memory!

Best trip ever!!!

Reviewed By Dena - Shady Shores, Texas | Traveled to Italy ~ Europe
Give your trip dreams to Beau Black then sit back and get ready to be amazed beyond your expectations! We wanted an individualized two week trip to Italy with specific requests. He made everything possible from private tours with the most knowledgeable and personable tour guides to train rides with the locals. Nothing on our bucket list was missed and everything went like clockwork! We traveled across Italy on high speed trains, toured by boat, van and private car transfers. Beau selected our hotels, each one was superior. Out of our hotel window in Rome we overlooked the Pantheon, the Gulf of Naples was our view from our hotel window in Sorrento and in Florence we overlooked the Arno River and were within walking distance to Uffizi Gallery. This was a trip of a life time and Beau Black hit everything with exceptional detail! I cannot recommend Beau Black high enough if you want someone who will make your personalized trip perfect! If I could give him more than 5 stars I would!
William "Beau" Black III responded:
Dena, it was a blast planning this for you and Joe, and I'm so glad you got to see and experience Italy as you did. Thanks for entrusting me with this trip.

Fifteenth Anniversary Trip

Reviewed By JA - Fort Worth, TX | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Beau went above and beyond in planning our trip! We originally planned to travel during the COVID summer, and he enthusiastically picked a great destination and travel plan. When we rescheduled it, he patiently bore with us and then, leading up to the trip itself, he offered a wealth of information for the area, since he had first hand knowledge from touring the area himself prior. Beau respond quickly to communications and is quick to make decisions, filtering through options to select the best one for the client’s wishes and budget. We’ll use him again!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
William "Beau" Black III responded:
Thanks so much, Jared. Glad you all had an amazing trip--and I'll be here when you're ready to book the next one!
