Review: Best Of The Canyonlands With Trafalgar

Canyonlands with Trafalgar

By: Tahlon Springs, CTA and Senior Travel Consultant

The Best of the Canyonlands with Trafalgar was a fantastic trip. The trip starts in Denver and ends in Las Vegas. I happen to have family in both those cities so it was ideal for me to arrive a day early and leave one day later to enjoy time with them. For this trip, I decided to take my mother. She doesn’t get to travel much so she was extremely excited.

Review: Iconic Ireland and Ashford Castle With Brendan Vacations

Iconic Ireland

By: Darlena Hernandez, Travel Consultant

Iconic Ireland is just absolutely amazing! From the numerous shades of green, to the Wild Atlantic Way, there is something that is sure to mesmerize you! I have to say, the people of Ireland are most welcoming, filled with pride for their country, and are so willing to tell you many tales of Ireland’s history.

The pubs are alive with much laughter, great pub fare and glasses full of Guinness!  You will see countless castles on this journey. Some are in pristine condition and some are ruins left from centuries long past. If you have not had the opportunity to get to Ireland, I would definitely write that on your “Bucket List” and let Brendan Vacations show you the breath taking views of this Celtic Country!

Review: Blue Danube Discovery With Avalon Waterways

Danube With Avalon Waterways

By: Derek Miller, Travel Consultant

Arriving early in Budapest served me and my cousin well.  We got a chance to see the city before starting our Avalon Waterways river cruise the next day.

Once we began our adventure with Avalon Waterways, we started with a short tour on the Pest side. There are two sides of Budapest. The Buda side and the Pest side. The Buda side with started back in the 1200’s and the Pest side in the 1850’s.  The Buda side is made up of large hillsides and is primarily residential. The Pest side is more commercial and the landscape is flat. Many of the city’s best hotels are on the Pest side.
