River Cruise to the Hermitage

Dear Girls Going Global,

I trust you’ve all had a lovely summer with exciting journeys to reminisce about!  Thinking ahead to next fall – I wanted to share with you an opportunity to explore Russia on a river cruise with other travellers from the lower mainland.

Our trip starts on September 16th, 2017 with flights from Vancouver to Moscow, where you’ll embark on a 13 day River Cruise along the Volga to St. Petersburg.
The highlight of this journey is a ‘Hermitage behind closed doors’ experience – a full day, small group excursion hosted by an art historian!
You’ll visit the public and the ultra-secured private vaults to explore the heavily guarded collection of priceless masterpieces, including paintings, sculptures, frescoes, furniture and Imperial carriages.
Check out this video for a glimpse of what’s to come.

We’ve included airfare from Vancouver, 11 guided shore excursions as well as drinks with lunch and dinner, airport transfers, air & port taxes and fees.
And – we are offering a special $500 savings, if you book by September 30, 2016.

See below for the detailed itinerary and pricing and get in touch with Christine Boecker Tel 604 338 9211 if this appeals to you.
It’s a wonderful opportunity to travel with like-minded Vancouverites.

Rolling…Rolling down the River with Viking River Cruises!

Dear River Cruise friends,

Thank you for joining us last week for our ‘Viking River Cruise Night’ and sharing your enthusiasm for exploring the world in general, and River Cruising in particular.  I trust that our presentation has whet your appetite to explore this wonderful world we live in, whether by River Boat or any other means.

I also want to express my thanks to Vicki Hodgson, owner of Jet-Lag Travel Fashion Boutique for being such a gracious host, despite her recently broken foot! And, of course the evening wouldn’t have gone off so smoothly without the able assistance of Alyssa, Pat and Maxine. I am so grateful for your support, ladies!

Experienced travellers agree that a River Cruise is one of the most enjoyable and hassle-free ways to explore the world’s most charming towns and discover the true nature of the land and its people.           As you could see from Kim Lucy’s wonderful presentation it is a most comfortable way to vacation. You’re in the middle of the action and there’s plenty of time to unwind.  A River Cruise certainly is a journey of discovery – up close and personal!

To learn more about the destinations and the Viking ships simply visit our website –  TravelBoecker.com and click on the 2nd picture on our European River Cruise page.  From here you can explore all of the river cruises we offer, world-wide.         Please don’t hesitate to call me if I can help you navigate through the website, and ultimately down a fabulously interesting river.

Remember that we are offering a $150 shipboard credit for any booking made by the end of February. This is applicable to new bookings for Europe, Russia and China sailing from May 2015 through to the end of 2016. The other good news is that these River Cruises are now offered in Canadian Dollars at an exchange rate not seen since the end of last year!

As I mentioned last week, I have been a travel consultant since the 70ties, when I completed a 3 year travel agent apprenticeship at my uncle’s travel agency in Europe. Since then I have travelled the world and look forward to sharing my first-hand knowledge with you. One way of doing that is via our seasonal newsletter, the latest of which you can view by clicking here.  Read all about the ‘Top 10 Destination in 2015’, check out our Photo Gallery, the very handy Traveller’s Toolkit and the many testimonials we’ve received from satisfied customers. You are welcome to click here and join our mailing list.  I promise that you will not receive any SPAM! And it’s very easy to unsubscribe if you prefer not to be tempted.

TravelBoecker Adventures is also the go-to travel agency for Jet-Lag’s Women’s Travel Club, called Girls Going Global. If you are interested in learning more, please click and open the attached flyer, or visit the Jet-Lag Travel Fashion Boutique website and look for Women’s Travel Club listed on the left-hand side. You can also call the store at 604.277.3331 to sign up for future events.

Once again – thank you for joining us and I look forward to planning your next vacation for you!

Yours in Travel,

Christine Boecker
