European River Cruise Travel Expert

Think all river cruises are alike? If only that were so. River cruises differ in many ways, including ship configuration, amenities offered, and specific excursions. 

I have done the research to understand the differences in the river cruise ships by different cruise lines including their on-board facilities...

Fully Customized Independent Travel Expert

Traveling independently is something that many of us strive to do. There is more flexibility in what you want to see, and when you want to see it. 

But with flexibility also comes complexity. With an escorted tour or cruise, your accommodations, guides and much of your transportation is already...

My Travel Stories

My First Trip to England

Our first trip to England holds special meaning to me because of what resulted from it. It was this trip that got me thinking that my next career could be as a travel agent.

As is usually the case in travel to Europe, we arrived at Heathrow Airport early in the morning. Getting from Heathrow...Read more.

Customer Testimonials

Mediterranean Cruise

We recently returned from a 14 day trip to Rome and a Mediterranean cruise that Pat planned for us. Pat listened to all my many requests and was able to deliver on all of them. His attention to detail was impeccable. We had an absolutely amazing trip, and I know that I will ask Pat to help us with the next one.
Jim and Susan K, Farmville, VA

Switzerland Extended Holiday

We are happy to highly recommend Patrick McGill for any of your travel needs. Pat assisted us in the detail planning of an extensive eight (8) week trip to Europe. We booked all of our air, train, hotel and local tours through Pat and he did an outstanding job. His attention to detail, follow up and consideration of our personal preferences was outstanding. While we were on our trip, he continued to monitor our progress and regularly reached out to us to assure that we were having a good experience.
Dean S., Bryan, OH

First European Trip

A shout out to our travel agent, Patrick McGill for an incredibly planned and executed multi-country European trip. All flights, train transfers and excursions went off without a hitch. I can honestly say things went smoothly these 14 days. This was not the case for my traveling friends who did not use Pat. We flew Delta into Amsterdam and flew out of CDG Paris. We checked luggage and it was never lost. If you need a great TA, Pat is the man! He is now doing river cruises and that is on my bucket list to try. Just my traveling thoughts.
Gail C., Jamestown, NC

Our Birthday Trip to Barcelona

Pat arranged our ten day trip to Spain. All of the arrangements worked out great. The hotel and the excursions were all well coordinated and exactly as promised. Pat's arrangements were less expensive than if we had made the arrangements ourselves. Pat will definitely be in charge of our next trip.

Mother Daughter Trip to London

My daughter and I just returned from a special trip to London, and we had a great time. We credit Pat McGill for a well planned itinerary and for finding such perfect accommodations. Pat helped my husband and me last year to plan a trip to Europe. He did such a great job, that when we decided to visit London, Pat was the first call I made. We gave Pat basic information, and he did all the research. With so much available online information having Pat do the leg work and use his resources and knowledge is a much easier solution. Pat is up to date on travel issues, the latest deals with airlines and hotels, the ins and outs of getting around the city, best currency/credit card to use and all the little items you don’t think of. Pat was always available for questions, even during the trip. On a Sunday afternoon, when our day tour operator changed the pick up location at the last minute, Pat was communicating with the tour operator to assure we were not left behind.

My Reviews

First Time Cruisers
Informed, helpful, available. Patrick worked with the cruiseline to get us a reasonably-priced package for a very nice trip. He consistently checked on us and on our travel plans. When we had questions, we had no trouble reaching him. Patrick is easy to work with, and takes time to understand our needs and wishes. We look forward to travel planning with him again.

40th Anniversary Dream Trip - Spain and Morocco
Patrick put an itinerary together after listening carefully to our needs, wishes, and budget. He was thorough and flexible as we tweaked a few things, making excellent recommendations we had not considered.
While overseas we ran into weather problems that interfered with a scheduled ferry. Pat was available right away to adjust the time of the ferry so we would not miss a travel day.
Super nice and attentive guy!

We had a great experience working with Pat. He is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and helpful. He followed up and promptly responded to all of our questions regarding our cruise to Alaska which were numerous as we had never been on a cruise or a trip to Alaska!
