Helping you see the world, one experience at a time.



HAPPY HOUR TRAVEL helps you explore Europe like a pro! Packages with air, hotel, and activities can save you a lot of money and as an extra, you get all the inside tips to go off the beaten path for an authentic experience.


If you have young kids, Europe can be a lot of fun too, when we plan it right. Take it from my experience... the best way to make them walk more is to bribe them is with a gelato. It works!

There are basically 3 ways of traveling to Europe:



Join a group of like-minded travelers and all you have to do is worry about which cute dresses you need to bring or for the guys, how many t-shirts! This is a very convenient and cost-effective way to travel. Be careful as not all escorted tours are created the same! Some cater to the low-cost traveler and will have very large groups. Nothing wrong with it if you are on a budget but the larger the group, the less special the experience is.

The escorted tours I work with are filled with experiences that you wouldn't otherwise do. It might be a cooking class with a local family, a dance class or a dinner under the stars. These types of escorted tours come in a variety of prices, from budget to luxury, without compromising

authenticity and connection.


You can do ocean cruises in the Mediterranean Sea, British Islands, Iceland and Ireland... or river cruises in all Europe's famous rivers like the Danube, Douro, Rhine, Rhone, and others.

There are many companies who do Ocean and River cruises and I can match you with the perfect one for you (based on your personal style, the activities you are looking for, places you want to visit and more).

The Ocean cruises always include all meals but not necessarily the beverages. The River Cruises have more of an "all-inclusive" feel to them, including meals, some beverages, and many shore excursions. Cruises are also a very convenient way to visit different parts of Europe as you can go to different places without all the packing and unpacking. 


You go on your own and I create a completely new itinerary for you. You have more choices and flexibility which is great! But I also advise it can be overwhelming. It involves a lot of planning but fear not, I'm here for you! We will start with a list of things you want to see and do and I will go to the drawing board to create something that will connect all the dots in the most effective way.

Depending on where you want to go, this trip can involve trains, boat/ferry, car rental or even private drivers. It will really depend on what's on your list and your comfort level traveling independently. The beauty of it is that we can make your itinerary from scratch and add lots of cultural experiences along the way!
