I visited so many cute towns!

I'm excited to share the wonderful experience I had cruising down the Rhine River with Avalon Waterways in August 2022.


I was able to savor delicious cuisine that truly reflected the regions we passed through. From Swiss chocolates in Basel to Dutch cheese in Amsterdam, every meal was a delightful journey through European flavors.


But what made this trip truly exceptional was the amazing staff. They were not just knowledgeable but also incredibly warm and friendly, making us feel like we were among friends.


And the excursions were a highlight. We explored charming Strasbourg, meandered through the historic streets of Cologne, and visited the exciting city of Amsterdam. It's not just about seeing the sights; it's about truly experiencing these incredible places.


For those of you who appreciate a mix of relaxation, exploration, and a touch of culture and history, Avalon Waterways is a perfect choice. Whether you're an experienced traveler or just beginning to explore the world, this river cruise offers something for everyone.


So, if you're ready for a memorable journey, don't hesitate to reach out. I look forward to helping you create memories that will stay with you forever.

The most amazing family vacation ever!!!
Tricia is awesome. She helped us with every part of our trip to Alaska and we had the best time. Knowledgeable, caring and personable. We couldn't have asked for a sweeter person who we had complete confidence in. Everything, even the smallest detail, was taken care of. Tricia and Burkhalter Travel are the BEST!!!!

Excellent Service for a Last Minute Trip!
Tricia was able to find an affordable flight for me last minute when I was unable to find anything affordable on line. She also went above and beyond and found me seats that were comfortable given me extra long legs and sent me a weather update before I left so that I'd know what to expect on arrival. It made for a very smooth trip during a situation that was otherwise stressful, requiring travel at the last minute.
