European River Cruise - the BEST way to see Europe

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? 


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 the United States, Europe, Asia and Egypt because, historically, many of the major cities were developed around rivers.  Arriving directly in the city center of many of the destination countries, you get to experience all the highlights of the 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 getaway! 


Helping my clients plan extraordinary and unforgettable river cruise experiences!

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.

My Travel Stories

Cruising on the Romantic Rhine

    Traveling to Europe gave me first-hand experience with the Covid restrictions and protocols. The most important lesson is that the dread of presenting all the paperwork is the worst part. Once your documentation is presented at the airport, everything flows smoothly, almost to the point of normalcy.

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!

Trip of a lifetime!
Diane and I sat down and reviewed all the possible ports of call and what we could do in each place. That was so helpful and proved to enrich our experiences. She also helped chose a room and shared some of her experiences. She answered all our questions from that day until the day we left. We are back just one week and would like to return.
