Group and Individual Custom Travel Specialist
I have had the opportunity to visit Europe more than twenty-five times leading groups of 12 to 150 to the famous sights as well as the out of the way small villages and towns. I started in the travel business taking choir groups on singing and sightseeing trips in the United States and in Europe. Most of these groups were over a hundred people.
For the past ten years, I have concentrated on smaller groups and planning custom trips for my clients. We travel by train, coach, ship and automobile. I have led groups to the Baltic by ship and to Germany, France, Austria, the Czech Republic and Hungary by river boat. I have done groups in Italy, Germany and Switzerland by train and coach. I enjoy showing the group how to use the public transportation to get around town and how to use the train to do side trips from a main location. I help them find the small, less expensive hotels and the restaurants the locals visit.
I am taking a group to Europe in 2013 from August 23-September 2. We are starting out in Prague, Czech Republic, then taking the Viking Schumann on the Elbe River to Berlin, the capital city of Germany. We will make stops in Dresden, Wittenburg and Magdeburg, followed by several additional nights in Berlin. Although we are starting our trip in Houston, Texas, I have many clients around the US. I have experience in making arrangements from various departure points so that people can travel together for most of the trip before arriving together at the destination.
My favorite countries in Europe are Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy. My favorite part of traveling is visiting the small towns and villages, trying the regional wines and food, and seeing how the natives live. Travel is a great learning experience to me and I am always ready to research a new destination.
