- SPAIN WITH BARCELONA, MALLORCA AND SEVILLESpain, Spain
SPAIN: BARCELONA, MALLORCA, AND SEVILLE APRIL 16-28, 2024
11-Nights, 4-star properties With Air - Just $3,650
This trip has been months in the planning and is what we proudly feel is now worthy of our audience. It will make for an amazing journey for sure, taking us to Barcelona for 3-nights, Mallorca for 4-nights and Seville for 4-nights.
We start off in Barcelona for our first 3 nights. The first human settlements in Barcelona date back to Neolithic times. The city itself was founded by the Romans who set up a colony called Barcino at the end of the 1st century BC. The 20th century ushered in widespread urban renewal throughout Barcelona city, culminating in its landmark Eixample district. The Catalan Antoni Gaudí, one of the most eminent architects, designed buildings such as the Casa Milà (known as La Pedrera, the Catalan for stone quarry), the Casa Batlló and the Sagrada Família church, which have become world-famous landmarks. Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is one of Europe’s trendiest cities. Much of the activity revolves around Las Ramblas, a series of narrow streets and alleys packed with restaurants, nightclubs and a vibrant pedestrian market.
Next up is Mallorca. We'll have 4-nights to explore and enjoy this beautiful island. For many years Mallorca has been a favorite nautical destination for Europeans and Spanish people due to a variety of reasons. But the main reason is that it is an extraordinarily beautiful place in the Mediterranean, with crystal-clear waters and an ideal weather.
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and has many interesting attractions for tourists. Our hotel is ideally located in the harbor, just a few minutes' walk from the Old Towne in Palma. Attractions in and around Palma de Mallorca include the city's dramatic seafront Cathedral (La Seu) - which was constructed in the 13th century and took almost 400 years to complete; the Parc de la Mar - a tiered park offering splendid views of the waterfront; and the grand Almudaina Palace - a formal royal residence dating back almost 700 years. There are many museums in Mallorca, offering interesting information about the island and its history, which dates back to ancient times and boasts traces of Roman and Arab civilizations. Appealing art galleries are also present on Mallorca, exhibiting various works of art, such as the Museu d'Art Espanyol Contemporani, which has paintings by Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and Salvador Dali.
Our 4-star hotel here is situated on the harbor a short walk into the main old town area and we have paid an extra fee to guarantee everyone sea view rooms!
After 4-nights in Mallorca we will fly off to Seville. Our hotel is perfectly situated within easy walking distance to all the attractions including the wonderful palace of Alcazar and the Catedral de Seville and Giralda Tower, the largest Gothic building in the world and the third-largest church in Europe. It is truly impressive.
From Seville we plan to offer a couple of wonderful day trips including Ronda or even a trip across the Strait of Gibraltar to visit Tangier. Ronda was one of our favorite towns on our last visit to Spain.Ronda sits in the heart of the Serrania de Ronda, about 100kms from the city of Malaga and with apopulation of approximately 35,000 inhabitants. Surrounded by lush river valleys and sitting above a deep ravine, it is a place that literally takes your breath away when seeing it. Anyone who has been lucky enough to visit Ronda will understand its appeal. It is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Spain (the third most visited city in Andalucia).
It's a nice pace with great flights, hotels and tours that we're sure you'll enjoy. We only need a $200 deposit to sign you up. Early sign-ups will always be considered for any potential upgrades.

We'll be kicking this trip off with Prague for 4 nights, a city that has become one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations. You will absolutely love our hotel here, the Hotel Rott, located just steps from of the Old Towne and very elegant - completely worthy of all of it's 4-stars.
We’ll wander around Old Town Square with its many wonderful Gothic and baroque buildings. We’ll see the famous 15th-century astronomical clock at the Old Town Hall. Every hour, crowds assemble below to watch Christ and the twelve Apostles appear at two little windows above the clock face, followed by the skeleton of Death tolling the bell. In the evenings we’ll find some of Europe’s best jazz venues, excellent opera, and innovative theater.
Tours in Prague will include a full day on tour to two amazing places, one which is a World Heritage Site! We'll start off at Kutna Hora. The historic centre is one of the country's prettiest and the gothic cathedral of St Barbara arguably the country's most spectacular. Our second stop is to Cesky Sternberk, set on the steep stony bank of the Sázavar. Called the "Pearl of Posázaví" by a romantic poet [Posázaví is the region around the river], the castle was built in 1241 by Zdeslav of Divišov, and given the name "Šternberk" according to the custom of the day.
After our 4-nights in Prague we'lll bus to Vienna. Along the way we'll visit the amazing medieval town of Cesky Krumlov. This Unesco world heritage site is one of the most scenic towns you will ever visit. Vienna is known for their medieval streets and magnificent cathedrals and palaces, along with being home of some of the most famous composers including Mozart, Strauss and Tchaikovsky. Magnificent Hofburg Palace, Belvedere Palace, extensive gardens, museums, music, architecture, trendy clubs and restaurants are all waiting for us.
On our first full day we'll enjoy the Belvedere gardens - Schönbrunn Palace. We'll visit the Vienna Woods a very scenic area, to hear stories of "Singing Monks" or about the tragedy of Mayerling. We'll then visit the Abbey of Heiligenkreuz. a beautiful and living Cistercian monastery.
On our second day we'll take a full day tour with our bus plus a nice boat ride on the Danube to visit the beauty of the Wachau. The Danube winds his way past charming old villages and steep vineyards. We'll visit the Abbey of Melk and enjoy the former Imperial Rooms, the Marble Hall, the balcony and the library.
Finally, we'll take the hydrofoil from Vienna to Budapest.
On our first day we'll enjoy first a walking tour. This tour will take us to the Caste District, Gellért hill and Heroes' square. We will have the option to visit Matthias church as well. Then we'll get on our bus and visit the Central market and enjoy some free time for lunch there. From there we will go to the cave church which is very interesting and unique since the church is inside a natural cave. We will then go to the Parliament area and then St. Stephen Basilica.
On our second day we'll go on the "Bends of the Danube" tour. The tour goes along the river Danube to the north from the capital to the Danube Bend. The first stop is Esztergom which is the ecclesiastical centre of Hungary and has the largest Roman Catholic church of the country. After visiting this majestic building the tour goes on to Visegrad which used to be Royal Residence and where the ruins of a 13th century fortress can be found and you may enjoy a splendid panoramic view of the river Danube as well and get acquainted with the rich history. The last town is the charming, baroque artists' village of Szentendre which has a very special architecture and atmosphere due the great number of Serbian refuges settling here in the 17th century.

This will be our 4th trip to Thailand and our third time to Krabi. Thailand is exotic, beautiful, and thrillingly different. This is a relaxing trip with just two stops - 3-nights in Bangkok and 7-nights in Krabi. We depart LAX on June 19th and arrive in Bangkok on the 20th.
We arrive on June 20th with our flight from LAX (stops in Singapore). The next 2 days we will plan a a couple of half day tours to include the Grand Palace and a Klong tour of the canals. On this tour, a long-tailed speedboat whisks you down the Chao Phraya River and canals (khlongs) of Thonburi – the original site where Bangkok was founded. During our canal tour we will visit Wat Arun, situated on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. The spire (prang) of Wat Arun is one of Bangkok's world-famous landmarks. It has an imposing spire over 70 metres high, beautifully decorated with tiny pieces of colored glass and Chinese porcelain placed delicately into intricate patterns.
If there is one must-see sight that no visit to Bangkok would be complete without, it's the dazzling, spectacular Grand Palace, undoubtedly the city's most famous landmark. Built in 1782 - and for 150 years the home of the Thai King, the Royal court and the administrative seat of government - the Grand Palace of Bangkok is a grand old dame indeed, that continues to have visitors in awe with its beautiful architecture and intricate detail, all of which is a proud salute to the creativity and craftsmanship of Thai people.
Our hotel, the 5- star Eastin Grand Hotel Sathorn was chosen for it's high ranking on Tripadvisor (29 out of 1600 hotels in Bangkok!) and the tram system stops right at the hotel, not to mention the beautiful rooms and infinity pool at the top of the roof!

After our 3 nights in Bangkok we will depart for the amazing coastline with our visit to Krabi. You will be blown away with the beauty and the islands off-shore that are a short boat ride away. Krabi Town is majestically situated among impossibly angular limestone karsts jutting from the mangroves. The distinguishing feature of both Krabi and neighboring Phang Nga is the massive limestone karsts, rising vertiginously out of the flat rice paddies on land and as islands from the sea.
Krabi abounds with countless natural attractions that never fail to impress. Such attractions include white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, fascinating coral reefs, caves and waterfalls, as well as numerous islands. We'll organize optional tours into the interior jungle for river rafting ATVing, Caving, Ziplining, and even elephant riding and head to the ocean for snorkeling, island hoping and scuba diving. There is just so much to do including visiting spas, hot springs and other sight seeing and in Thailand our dollars goes a long way!

- AMSTERDAM WITH BELGIUM SINGLES VACATIONAmsterdam, Amsterdam, NH
September 4th - 15th, 2024
$3,850 double occupancy including air from LAX, daily breakfast,
ground transportation, 3 guided tours and city taxes
10 days with 4-nights Amsterdam
2-nights in Antwerp
4-nights in Bruges, Belgium
Ready for the next European adventure? This is a wonderful itinerary that we're sure you're going to enjoy.
We will start out in Amsterdam for 4 nights. This is the most multi-cultural, multi-dimensional city in Europe. You’re in the Netherlands now and everyone will find this city extremely beautiful and interesting. Sure, there’s a reputation for an open attitude and permissiveness, but in addition it’s quaint, colorful and extremely scenic.
Some of the tours that we planned on our 2018 trip was a visit to the red light district, a really great bicycling tour, we went to the Anne Frank house, made a day of the hop on/ off canal bus which took us to the Rijksmuseum. We organized a candlelight and wine dinner cruise on the canal and of course we visited the Van Gogh Museum. Since it will be spring in Holland you can expect to see plenty of flowers all over. We will set up a bus tour that will allow us to see and admire many of the key sites of Holland including a visit to the the world's biggest flower auction in Aalsmeer and to visit Delft, Rotterdam, The Hague and Madurodam.
From there our trip will continue to Antwerp - just a 2-hour bus ride away. Antwerp’s broad, leafy boulevards and outdoor cafes might evoke those of Paris, but in the cobbled, 16th-century alleyways, Flemish townhouses and sprawling, retro-futurist port, Antwerp shows its true face: one which is all its own. The old city, within the arc once formed by the 16th-century fortifications, has many narrow, winding streets and old buildings. This area contains the Cathedral of Our Lady, begun in the 14th century and restored in the 19th and 20th centuries; it is one of the nation’s finest Gothic buildings. It gained fame as a centre of the diamond industry and for its legacy of fine arts.
Antwerp combines the grandeur of yesteryear with an urban vibrancy. Its Grote Markt and cathedral, Scheldt riverbanks and cobbled streets go hand in hand with a thriving nightlife, galleries and art palaces. It is home to the Rubens House, Plantin-Moretus Museum, Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), the Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (M HKA) and much more. A half-day guided tour will be included as well as an optional bike tour.
Our trip continues south to Bruges, Belgium. Our bus ride is only 90 minutes and will take us through some amazing scenery. Bruges, known as the "Venice of the north" is a bit like Amsterdam on a smaller scale. I'm sure you will fall in love with this city. We’ll have 4 nights to discover, stroll, relax and tour this city that many have made their favorite. We'll enjoy an optional canal cruise, bike ride and an optional half-day trip to Ghent. We'll also offer a delightful river cruise aboard the Lamme Goedzak that will take us to Damme with numerous delightful restaurants, surrounded by medieval buildings such as the Town hall, the windmill and the Church of Our Lady
