This Europe tour was filled with unforgettable sites, exquisite cuisine and rich history from multiple regions of Europe.
From the Strauss & Mozart landmarks in Vienna to the many cathedrals, cafes, sculptures and unique parks in Maribor, Ljubljana and Zagreb — this tour was truly the experience of a lifetime. We had the opportunity to experience a farm to table dinner that was delicious to say the least. We also indulged in an authentic Croatian cuisine at a konoba (a home-like restaurant where they serve traditional dishes).
“People ask me, ‘What is your favorite location that you’ve traveled to?’ to which I say my next trip.”
Travel has been a passion of Debbie’s since her college days when she took her first life-changing trip to Spain. Now over thirty years later, she is doing what she loves every day. Debbie’s career in travel has taken many roads, from her start as a vacation travel advisor, to a stint as a corporate travel advisor to finally, her true calling in group travel.
As a tour manager, Debbie loves the interactions she has with guests. “Nothing is more rewarding than to have someone tell me that their life has changed because of a new experience, an incredible meal they’ve had, or through someone they’ve met on one of our tours,” said King, “I have been blessed to travel the world, but no matter how many times I return to a location, I learn something new.”
Some of Deb’s favorite experiences include:
- Tasting an incredible shrimp bisque in Bermuda
- A train ride through the Swiss Alps to Gstaad, Switzerland during winter
- Seeing the Eiffel Tower light up at night for the first time
- Her first walk through the Sistine Chapel
- Dining locally with Bosnians while they recalled stories of living through the Bosnian war

There’s always something happening in the Dominican Republic. This is understandably why our Vacation Consultants have paired up thousands of travelers with the best vacation deals, flights and top resort packages available with partners like Apple Vacations, Funjet Vacations and Delta Vacations. Southern Caribbean cruises also offer a popular opportunity to visit the Dominican Republic.
We’ll arrange a vacation that’s as active or as laid-back as you desire, whether we book your stay in a resort on the eastern shores of Punta Cana or romantic La Romana in the south. Each region has its own personality — like the constant trade winds in Cabarete on the northern coast that create the perfect conditions for windsurfing and kite surfing.
Make your way from beach side bliss into lush rain forests where more adventures await. Sweep over the canopy on a mountain zip line and meet friendly squirrel monkeys in Monkey Jungle. From Santo Domingo, you can hike to waterfalls and river banks within Rio Blanco Rainforest and take a detour to an organic coffee plantation.
Breathtaking oceanfront beauty meets challenging courses that entice world-class golfers from around the globe. At Paradisus Palma Real Resort — designed for both families and couples — your stay includes unlimited golf along with all-inclusive dining. Spend a day on the course or take a break for a spa treatment, and then experience an unforgettable dinner at Passion by Martín Berasategui, crafted by the renowned seven- Michelin-starred chef.
The Dominican Republic is so easy to reach. Choose a scheduled air flight year-round or enjoy convenient, seasonal non-stop flights from select cities with popular tour companies. You won’t believe how far from everyday life it feels. Incredibly blue waters greet you upon arrival, only hinting at the abundance of marine life that exists below. Let us arrange your scuba diving or snorkeling excursion among coral reefs, deep underwater caves and sunken shipwrecks. While the waters are welcoming all year round, they’re clearest between June and September.
The bright flavors of the Caribbean shine here. Come in summer and you’ll likely get to experience mango season — these juicy treats can be found all over, but they especially flourish in the southern city of Baní. Of course, where there are amazing ingredients, equally amazing dining follows. We’ll get you to your next great meal from roadside stands to elegant resort restaurants.
This popular tourist area is also known for its breathtaking back-drops for destination weddings. Travelers combine their honeymoon, vacation and wedding celebrations all into one memorable retreat.

Winter is here in Wisconsin and its cold. In the midst of a massive snowstorm I turn to food for warm thoughts.
One of my favorite things, when I am stuck inside is to bring out my old and dear pieces of cooking equipment, like my dearly loved and used Madeleine pans.

Whether it’s the current or a future government shutdown, travel is often heavily impacted with so many employees on a government payroll. With airports lacking the personnel they usually carry, time spent in line may increase. Find out what Rose Gray had to say about avoiding frustrations as she chatted with WTMJ’s Gene Mueller.
