We have been using Linda to book our river cruises (and Tauck Tours) for the past 9 years now and she has put together wonderful holidays for us including cruising along the Yangtze River in China, two European River Cruises and an amazing journey on the Amazon River.
She always goes the extra mile to make sure that all the details are taken care of before we leave and follows up with us when we return. We would highly recommend her for booking a cruise or land tour and look forward to our next journey through her. (she has just booked us for our third Regent Seven Seas Cruise – we love that everything is included!)

We arrived home today and wanted to report on our wonderful experience with AMA Waterways. It was perfect. I think being on a new ship makes a big impression. The room was spacious and nicely appointed. Having the floor to ceiling windows gave it an open feeling. The food was outstanding! We talked with other “experienced cruisers” who commented on the high quality of the food. The local guides were very knowledgeable and interested in sharing the history of the city and region. Greg and I both agree that what made the trip was the experienced and caring staff who really seem to enjoy people and their jobs. Thank you for recommending AMA — We loved it!

We had a wonderful time. The Azamara Quest was a lovely little ship. The service was first rate. Our ship excursions were all well run and very informative. The Virtuoso tour of Helsinki was very interesting and quite different from anything offered by the ship. The tour leaders were very nice and we got to know them a bit. All ports of call equalled or exceeded our expectations. In St. Pete and the Peterhof we got in early and beat some of the rush. We did not eat in the two upscale restaurants, the main dining room was fine. Food was good and they had lots of themed meals. Liquor was free and plentiful. They were offering premium packages, but the “well” brands were just fine. Also the coffee bar was open about 18 hours a day and all the lattes and specialty coffees were available at no cost.
We were very lucky with the weather. Mostly sunny with a few cloudy days in various ports. The rainiest day was a sea day on the Kiel Canal. St.Pete was sunny and about 25C – perfect.
Thank you for all your help.

The trip was amazing, what a part of the world. Hong Kong was our favorite. What a cool place, so much to do, so easy to get around, so much to see. Halong Bay….breathtaking. We didn’t even have the most clear day but even with the haze it was more than we could have expected or imagined. Traveling through the islands and rock formations was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing! Some stunning photos in the caves. Singapore, So clean, the most unique of all the places I think. I wish we had more time to explore.
All in all Linda, it was a trip of a lifetime! You have 6 loyal returning clients in my family and the others. Your extra work and attention to making our vacation a success didn’t go unnoticed, THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH.
We will be in touch as we plan our next adventure in the future.
I wanted to thank you for the bottle of wine that greeted us in our cabin; it was a very thoughtful. Our trip was fantastic and the ship was amazing. I would highly recommend it to anyone. It was unfortunate that the cruise was only a week long as I felt there was still so much more to experience onboard.Furthermore, I wanted to thank you for the overall amazing experience and customer service you provided. This was my first time using a travel agent and was very satisfied; I would love to use you again for my next vacation.
Thanks again, kind regards,
We had a great trip! Thank you for all your help with our tour with Globus through Germany and Austria. We have other family members planning a trip next year. I have shared our trip with her and she wants to book it through you. Thanks again for an awesome trip.
The Tauck river cruise was terrific. Even though the low water levels presented challenges to the crew, we were extremely fortunate not to have been impacted severely by the situation. Most of the cities we visited were picturesque beyond belief. We also met some wonderful fellow passengers who made the experience truly memorable. Given the time of year, the weather was merciful and, in fact, rain never really entered into the picture.
As you know, this was our first river cruise. We have to say it was a terrific travel adventure in so many ways. Tauck seems to have distinguished themselves by the “extras” they provide in the form of entertainment. Be it dinner in a palace or a concert onboard the river ship, they did an outstanding job. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. Again, thank you so much for all you’ve done for us.
