Island Hopping in Croatia

I grew up in New York but currently live in Huntington Beach, California. I’ve always been an avid traveler and bike rider, and I’ve cycled all around America and Europe. I entered the travel industry nearly 10 years ago, and I recently decided to open my own travel agency. I have a lifelong passion for traveling and and I love helping people create unforgettable trips around the world!

I specialize in creating unique tours that focus on your interests in countless destinations. With my love for bicycle riding, I’ve booked many customized bike tours in beautiful locations like:

  • Austria
  • The Netherlands
  • Croatia
  • Italy
  • Spain
  • France
  • And more!

I'll find the best biking routes that go through scenic locations and important towns, and I'll take care of everything like bike rentals, luggage transfers, finding local guides, extra excursions, meals, and more. I love bicycle tours, and I know how to make them perfect based on your experience level, personal taste, and chosen destination!

Along with bike tours, I also book general vacations, guided tours, cruises, and anything else you desire. I’ve booked sailing excursions around Croatia and cruises in the Mediterranean, and I’ve created unique land tours in Italy and beyond. I’ll research everything and find the best activities and accommodations in your destination, and I’ll make sure you get the most out of the experience anywhere you go. I specialize in gathering small groups of friends and families who want to travel together.

Some of my main services include:

  • Completely personalized itineraries
  • Stress-free bookings
  • 24/7 assistance and support
  • Firsthand tips
  • Simplified travels, transfers, and rentals
  • Restaurant and activity recommendations
  • And more!

I have years of experience booking individualized itineraries and know how to make traveling better than ever. Whether you’re traveling with your family, a small or large group, or going solo, I’ll make sure every moment of your trip is incredible. Plus, I’m always available to answer your questions or help with anything you need.

I love booking vacations around the world, and I’m excited to make your next itinerary unforgettable today!

Wonderful Alaska cruise!
We booked a last minute Alaska cruise with Bob. He found us an unbelievably good deal and we had a wonderful family vacation. Everything worked out perfectly even though it was last minute. I would definitely use Bob again for future trips and we've already recommended him to a couple of our friends.

Let's Ride with Bob
My husband and I have been on two of Bob's Bike Tours. The first one was through the San Juan Islands in Washington. We had no idea what to expect. Bob did a terrific job of bringing a diverse group of people together and giving us opportunities to bond making new friends. The accomodations were at various hotels and all very well appointed. All included breakfast. Bob was good about communicating departure times and routes. He also added extra opportunities including a kayak tour and whale watching.
We enjoyed this trip so much that we signed up for his bike tour of Croatia. This was a trip of a lifetime. Again Bob pulled together a terrific group of like minded travelers. He planned an excursion to Plitvice Lakes National Park before the boat departure which was a tremendous addition to the adventure. Again the lodging he arranged was top notch. Logistics were challenging but he did a wonderful job. The company that he booked the bike cruise with was outstanding. I'd go again!
