This week we are visiting Iceland, fast becoming a popular tourist destination.  In fact, Iceland is one of the top ten places to visit in 2017.  With the way of the world these days, it’s nice to know there are still some “safe” places to visit.  I had Iceland interest a few months ago, so I thought I would highlight this amazing country for a 2018 tour.  You will also have an opportunity to view the Northern Lights on this tour.

Iceland is a country known for its natural wonders: glaciers, active volcanoes, black-sand beaches, geothermal areas, roaring rivers, majestic waterfalls, and beautiful lakes.  This itinerary is a photographer’s dream.  On this Iceland tour, we will start and end in Reykjavik, and witness for ourselves these natural wonders while enjoying fun and unique experiences.

One of the most scenic highlights will be a visit to Gullfoss waterfall and Gooafoss, known at the “Waterfall of the Gods.”

We will have an opportunity to take a soak in the geothermal hot springs.  Imagine being in a natural hot tub with ice and glaciers all around us.  That will be a memorable experience.

Pura Vida In Costa Rica

secrets_papagayo_aerial_1_0

Welcome to one of the prettiest and safest countries in the world – Costa Rica.  On this trip we will be staying at the beautiful Secrets Papagayo All Inclusive Adults Only resort located on the stunning Papagayo Peninsula in Guanacaste.  I have been in Guanacaste with some friends on a previous tour and we all loved this area.

This resort gives us an ultra luxury experience where we stay in Preferred Bungalow Suites while dining on gourmet meals and sipping premium drinks.  If adventure is part of your vacation, then there will be plenty for you to do .  Perhaps a visit to Arenal Volcano, take a canopy tour, visit the nearby country of Nicaragua, take an ATV tour, white water rafting and visit many of the rainforests for hiking. Some of you may prefer to stay on the property and enjoy all the amenities of the resort-the beautiful pools and stunning beach.

If you enjoy a nature vacation, then Costa Rica is the place to visit.  You will see many birds, monkeys, maybe a crocodile or two and some of the most beautiful flora and fauna in the world.

Just seeing these pictures make me want to return.  Hope you can join me on another adventure and experience for yourself “Pura Vida”.

 

Give me a call at 919.708.8217 or e-mail cruiselikeavip@windstream.net for more details about this amazing Costa Rica vacation.

The Best of Switzerland

Swiss images 1 - Copy - Copy

Welcome to the Best of Switzerland tour.  This is one of my favorite tours.  In fact, I have been on this very tour and would love to visit Switzerland again with my friends and family.  As most of you know, Switzerland is a neutral country which is one of the few safe countries in Europe that I feel comfortable visiting and sending my guests to.  Most of us think of Swiss Chocolate, Swiss Cheese and Swiss Watches when we think of Switzerland, but this country is so much more.

 

With it’s stunning mountains, fascinating old towns, beautiful lakes and long history, Switzerland is the perfection vacation offering something for everyone.  On this tour, we will experience some of its most beautiful scenery and interesting cities with overnight stays in Zürich, St. Moritz, Lugano, Zermatt (my favorite), Lake Geneva and Lucerne.

The first things I noticed about Switzerland were the friendly people and the pristine landscape.  Some of the freshest air you will ever breath is in Switzerland-so crisp and clean.  Depending on which “canton” (state) you are in, Swiss people speak German, Italian, French and Romansh.  By the way, many speak English, so we won’t have any problems with the language.

This tour is an 8 day 7 night escorted Globus tour with some meals included.  Excursions are also included in each city/canton.  Price includes tour, round trip airfare, round trip transfers.  Current rates for June and July, 2018 are $3800.00 per person.  Give me a call if you would like more information about Switzerland at 919.708.8217 or you can email me at cruiselikeavip@windstream.net.
