We recently returned from a 19 day trip to Ecuador. Christine arranged all aspects of the trip and every single day was absolutely amazing. The eight day boat trip of the Galapagos was incredible. The recommended cabin and boat was wonderful with great food, a wonderful guide and a daily schedule full of wonders and joy. Our guide after Galapagos, Alfredo, was amazing and after getting to know us recommended tours that suited our tastes perfectly from hikes to waterfalls to artisan chocolate making and weaving. The four day trip up Cuyabeno River in the headwaters of the Amazon was magical.Christine put together the perfect trip for us and arranged it so that it was the first trip we have taken that had no serious stress. Everything was easy and flowed. I am recommending her to all my friends and colleagues.
Christine's response: Wow - high praise from such a well-travelled couple. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves, and that everything worked seamlessly... the way it should be! And thank you for referring me to your friends and colleagues - can't wait to meet them,
We've been back from our trip to Quito and the Galapagos Islands for a week now and I would love to be back there swimming with the penguins and sea turtles. We had such an amazing time. We landed in Quito late and our driver was waiting to take us to our hotel about an hour away in old Quito. He talked about the area and history the whole way there and filled us in on all sorts of details that were of interest to us. We spent two days in Quito and took a tour one day and felt we learned a lot about the geography and the indigenous people and Incas and Spanish who arrived later.We left early for the islands and again everything was organized and well looked after. The islands are amazing and I was so glad to be on a very nice boat, which Christine had recommended. Our meals were delicious, our beds and rooms very comfortable and our guide was very knowledgeable and also had a great sense of humour. The islands are so unique and beautiful and the abundance of wildlife is incredible, it truly is a place like no other.Thanks to Christine at TravelBoecker we had a fabulous holiday and I'd go back in a heartbeat.
Christine's response: Thank you Heather for your lovely trip review. So happy that you had such a fabulous holiday!
We made this short trailer outlining our fantastic experience in Africa. Hope you enjoy it! Please turn your speaker on when watching.
WOW - what a great video. Thanks for sharing it. Looks like you three had a most wonderful time!
Thank you for your email, we have indeed returned (this past Tuesday) after a full month of amazing adventures in Peru and Ecuador! Everything went well travel-wise, we were cared for and supported almost too well in some places! Our guides and drivers were all excellent and we learned so much. The lodge in the Sacred Valley of the Incas was amazing, the hotel in Quito and the hacienda were perfect.The Amazon was very interesting. Another guest at the lodge was an anthropologist who has been working in the Amazon for the past 7 years so we had a really good time with her. Our guide, Oscar, was determined to show us as much as possible, including many medicinal trees and plants - amazing!We also enjoyed the cruise in the Galapagos - and thank you for insisting on a stable, higher quality yacht! We enjoyed the other guests, had a great guide, and enjoyed the food/service provided and our stay on Isabela Island was lovely.And so our trip was perfect - overall wonderful, memorable, and I could have kept on going! Thank you Christine!
Christine's response: It was such a pleasure designing your trip. Sounds like you had a fabulous time!
We had a great time in Kenya and Tanzania. It was amazing – we loved it. I would say Kenya was our #1 for the Wildebeest Migration, the Serengeti was best for Lions and in Tarangire we saw the most elephants. The camps were fantastic. Some were rustic, but they all gave us that real authentic Africa feeling. The bucket shower was cool, and the food was excellent! It really was the trip of a lifetime, and we have already recommended you to our friends!
Christine's response: Your trip sounds amazing! I'm thrilled that you enjoyed it so much, and that you would recommend us to your friends!
We are now back home after spending a wonderful two weeks on safari in Botswana and South Africa. Peter and I would like to thank you for the effort you obviously put into arranging a flawless and exciting trip for us, it was truly amazing. We enjoyed beautiful accommodation, we met some wonderful people, enjoyed first class meals and the game viewing was phenomenal, what more could a traveler ask for. Memories of this trip and our previous trip to Tanzania will last a life time. We are so happy we made the effort to live the dream.
Christine's response: Once again it was such a pleasure arranging this wonderful safari for you. And I am thrilled that you made such wonderful memories!
We had a wonderful , fantastic time in East Africa. All four camps were outstanding... the staff, the food, the guides - all outstanding!The Star Bed was really wonderful, a great experience. I could spend more time there just to sit and relax and not do very much, just taking in the surroundings and the beauty and serenity of nature. The Serengeti and the great migration was just magical. When we were there, there were lots of wildebeests and zebra all around us. We saw crocodile jumping on a zebra while crossing the river and the zebra disappeared. Then 20 minutes later it reappeared with the crocodiles having a strong hold on it. What a sight and what an experience. I had captured that on video. We also witnessed a lion kill in action, so much patience and stealth. At the end the prey got away and the lion did not get his food.The bird watching was fantastic. We stoped by almost every tree where there was a bird. I don’t think a regular safari would have allowed us to do that, the other travellers would probably be so mad at us for stopping so often.Accommodation was excellent, more than met our expectation. They are more than 5 star hotels, especially the one with the rain shower, so good to have after a hot day’s outing. Evening was cold but they have hot water bottles in our bed that actually lasted all night and kept us warm. Food was good and tasty and able to try their local palette was good experience. One of our breakfast was out on top of a mountain surrounded by wild beasts and with beautiful scenery. Our picnic lunch was sitting amongst the wildebeests and zebras, with table and tablecloth set up. Just amazing!The Elephant sanctuary was also a great experience, and seeing how they have been rescued and raised was heart warming. All in all we had a great time and enjoyed it very much, and experience we will treasure.
Christine's response: Your experience in Africa is what makes my 'work' so enjoyable. Happy you enjoyed it all!
Awesome! That describes our trip the Botswana. This was our third trip to Africa and Christine planned everything perfectly, meeting all our expectations. We went to 4 camps experiencing different locations. All flights, transfers and stays were excellent. We finished with a 4 nt stay in Mozambique. Highly recommend Christine as she knows her product and will plan for your wishes. Thank you.
Christine's response: I'm so glad that you had an 'awesome' experience on your 3rd African safari! It was such a pleasure designing this journey for you. Thank you for your recommendation!
After experiencing a dream trip to Africa last year, we asked Christine to help us plan another trip - this time to Greece. The hotels were lovely, transfers to and from airports were always there on time and Christine's suggestions for places to stay were spot on!Thanks so much - where to next?!
Christine's response: Enjoyed designing your Greek Odyssey, and glad you had a great trip! I look forward to planning your next adventure, wherever that may take you. I have many wonderful ideas, and new trips added to the website constantly!
I can not thank you enough for the wonderful, wonderful trip that you planned for us. It was absolutely fabulous and exceeded our expectations. The timing of each destination was perfect, the rests that you put in were perfect. Every time we walked into a hacienda, our first words were WOW.I saw my blue footed boobies up close and personal, doing their little dance. I could have touched them!Thank you for a trip so well organized and thought out.I will be in contact with you for my next trip!!
Christine's response: It was such a pleasure designing your Trip of a Lifetime! And I'm happy that the wait was worthwhile. Can't wait to arrange your next trip too!
