Have you always dreamed of indulging in a bratwurst and beer tasting event, or visiting a local winery and sampling the regional fare, or taking an immersive culinary-themed tour that gives a taste of the indigenous cuisine? 


Would you like to discover such iconic wine regions as France’s Bordeaux; Austria’s UNESCO-designated Wachau Valley; Germany’s Riesling-rich Rheingau and Moselle valleys; Portugal’s Douro Valley; and more? 


Are you looking to be forever changed by experiencing the world in authentic cultural immersion that brings to life the history of an area and allows you to go back into a long-ago era and relive the past? 


Would you like to visit the cradle of civilization and see where mankind got its start? Have you dreamed of visiting and having your picture made beside of the Great Sphinx of Giza situated near the Great Pyramid? As a giant 4,500-year-old limestone statue in Egypt, the Great Sphinx is one of the world's largest monuments. 


River cruising is truly one of the best ways to experience Europe, Asia, Russia, and Egypt because, historically, many of the major cities were developed around rivers. European countries are the most popular destinations for river cruising. Arriving directly in the city center of many of the destination countries, you get to experience all the highlights of the European destination, while only having to unpack once. Add to that, luxurious accommodations, delicious dining options and endless amounts of pampering and you have the perfect European getaway! Diane suggests spending a few extra days before and after the cruise to have the chance to see all that your departure city has to offer.


By helping her clients plan extraordinary and unforgettable river cruise experiences, Diane knows every vacationer has a different idea of what his or her dream river cruise would entail, and she understands the countless nuisances offered by the various river cruise companies so that she can guide her clients to the one which will provide the perfect experience for the desired dream.

TESTIMONIAL - Bruce & Barbara - VA

We took a long anticipated trip to Europe through Diane Michael. We told her what we were hoping for and she arranged a trip of a lifetime for us. She booked us on the Viking River Cruises from Amsterdam to Budapest and it was truly what we were hoping for and much more. Diane made suggestions for extended stay in Amsterdam and a tour package which turned out to one of the high lights of our trip. From beginning to end our travel, arrangements and tours were perfect. Diane worked hard and provided for us more than we ever expected.

Exceptional from beginning to end!
Diane was exceptional to work with from beginning to end. She made our honeymoon experience one of the easiest things that we had to take care of during the wedding planning process. Even when our flights were delayed due to circumstances outside of our control, Diane was available and ready to assist us!
