Parker, Colorado Travel Agent
Germany, Austria & Switzerland Specialist
My passion lies in crafting unique trips to Europe, especially to Germany, where I lived for 8 years.
You have a picture in your mind about where you want to go. Are you hiking through a meadow in the shadow of the Alps? Are you dancing to the oompah bands during Oktoberfest with a liter of beer in your hand? Maybe you’re sipping wine on a slow-moving river cruise surrounded by castles or shopping the famous Nuremberg Christmas market. At Trish York Travel, I want to get you into that picture.
Maybe you don’t know where to begin. Or maybe you’ve spent several days researching and you’re overwhelmed. Whether you’re fulfilling your own dream or balancing the ideas of several traveling companions, talk to me. I’ll listen. And I’ll put my experience and connections to work designing a unique trip you’ll remember – long after you return.
Trish York Travel is a full-service travel company specializing in custom trips to Europe and beyond. When you work with me, you receive something special – a unique experience, created just for you.
Whether you’re celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary, researching your family’s European roots, or want to add a little more adventure to the start or end of a cruise, let me take care of the details. Planes, trains, castles, cruises, chocolate, wine, art, music, beer…share with me what you dream of experiencing and I’ll make it happen.
My passion lies in designing personalized itineraries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Often those itineraries include Italy or a river cruise through Europe. Prior to launching Trish York Travel, I spent more than 15 years in international public relations traveling the world, including eight years living in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Stuttgart, Germany. I have a local’s perspective – backed up by top-flight international travel partners and current contacts on the ground.
I continue to travel to Europe every chance I get. I want to experience a destination, hotel, cruise or tour before I recommend it to you. I know and love this part of the world – and want to share it with you.
These days, it’s easy to book travel on your own. But crafting a travel experience that gets every detail just right – and gives you the peace of mind to actually look forward to your trip? That’s still a job for a professional. Let me put my contacts, experience and passion to work, professionally crafting your custom European trip.

Exploring Europe - recent travel
Neuschwanstein Castle in the fall.
In fall 2017, I visited Neuschwanstein Castle & Germany’s tallest peak, the Zugspitze. Last spring, I was selected by the German National Tourist office to join a special trip to Dresden, Leipzig, & Berlin. I also visited emigration museums in Bremerhaven & Hamburg for heritage research. In June, I sailed on a river cruise from Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine River; visiting the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Switzerland.
During 2016, I traveled to Europe three times - visiting Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Monaco, France, and Spain – via train, car, cruise ship, & river boat. We enjoyed the beautiful Christmas markets of the Danube River in the fall & the stunning Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas over the summer.
Every detail was worked out and every single step went smoothly.
Trish followed up regarding every detail and our trip was fantastic.
Thanks for the review - am happy to hear everything went smoothly on your whirlwind trip.

Trip of a lifetime!
Thanks for your review. Happy I was able to help and glad you had an amazing adventure!
Amazing Adventure Honeymoon
Once in Costa Rica, we were treated like VIPs from private transportation to each hotel recognizing we were there for our honeymoon (card, a bottle of wine, etc.). The excursions were out of this world, and the accommodations were something out of a screen saver. The trip was a 10 out of 10.
We could not have had the honeymoon we did without Trish. We have already started to talk to Trish about an anniversary trip in 2018.
Thank you for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your Costa Rica honeymoon adventure and can't wait to see where you go for your 1st anniversary.
Excellent service made for smooth trip!
Thank you for your review. It's always fun working with clients traveling to new destinations.
