2011…Many Tempting Tours

Friday, March 5th, 2010

France - Dordogne Region

This is always an exciting time of year as I make final decisions on the next year’s trip schedule. My crystal ball is once again on the blink, so I’m relying on what I’ve heard from our travelers; what I’ve read in the news; and intuition developed over 30 years in the travel business. Check out our website for our 2011 schedule…I hope you’ll find a few that will tempt you to pull out your suitcase and start packing!

Alaska – Brochure Dropping Soon!

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

Why not spend time this summer visiting our own backyard…well, OK – Alaska isn’t exactly in our backyard but it’s darn close for those of us living in Seattle and you don’t have to get jetlag to get there.

Join other UW alumni and friends and enjoy luxury cruising on Regent”s Seven Seas Navigator. All cabins are suites and the majority of them include verandhas so you can watch the glaciers and hear them crack and pop right from your stateroom. Check our website for the full tour brochure.

Book by December 31, 2009 to take advantage of the special savings of $1,000 per stateroom, cruise fares!

Our November 2009 trip to India is now fully booked with a short waitlist! With my love of this fascinating country, I’m thrilled that more UW travelers are choosing to explore the destination.

The tour will follow the same itinerary as our 2009 trip – all that’s left to be confirmed is the price. Pricing details will be posted on our website as soon as they are available.

Costa Rica, Russia, Sicily & More

Friday, May 15th, 2009

Our complete 2010 tour schedule is up on the web and ready to entice you with a wide variety of destinations. A favorite part of my position here is finding a selection of tours to appeal to different interests.



Interested in Roman ruins and volcanoes? Come with us to Sicily. Love natural wonders and the outdoors? Join us in Costa Rica. Are exciting ports, fine dining and luxury accommodations to your taste? Come along on a Crystal or Oceania cruise. Enjoy river cruising? Hop on board as we follow the Seine, Dnieper and Elbe Rivers. Always wanted to “go on safari?” Search for the “Big Five” in Kenya & Tanzania or South Africa. See what I said about variety!

Now that our phones are ringing again (thank you!) we’re also exploring a few other additions to the schedule. If Cuba opens up, we’ll be there in April. Both China and North India will probably be added so please continue to check our web site for the latest details.
