We knew we wanted to go to Africa and see everything, but weren't quite sure how to accomplish that. Enter Christine and her superb knowledge and expert advice. Christine put together a trip that was faultless from the very beginning to the very end. Everything was organized and our expectations were not only met but exceeded on all accounts. We didn't see everything, but we sure saw a lot and cannot stop raving about how great this trip was. We can - without hesitation - recommend to anyone wishing to travel to talk with Christine, knowing that at the end of the day your expectations will be exceeded also. Many thanks Christine. John and Cheryl
Christine's response: I am blushing! Thanks so much for your kind words. So pleased that your 'trip of a lifetime' was even better than you expected. I look forward to designing your next journey too - wherever it may take you.
We enjoyed our Greek Odyssey so much last year that we decided to go back again! Once again, Christine delivered on everything from hotels to guides and everything in between. When there were a couple of "hiccups" with rescheduled flights, we called the local numbers in Athens that she had provided and we were immediately taken care of. We are now looking forward with bated breath to our next adventure in Portugal that Christine has planned for us!
Christine's response: Thank you for the opportunity to design this trip for you. Sounds like you had a fabulous time!
Well, my nephew and I are back from Africa - South Africa, Zimbabwe and Botswana, Christine hit it out of the ballpark, again. Thank you, Christine. We had a fabulous, fabulous trip. The travel plans were perfect and the accommodations she chose were spectacular. The guides that we had were truly exceptional with their knowledge of everything Africa. The experience will be forever in my heart. Mmm... I think I need to go back.
Christine's reply: So pleased that you had a fabulous trip. Can't wait to design your next African adventure too!
My husband and I just got back from our amazing trip to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe and Chobe, Botswana. We were travelling with family and wanted a few days of adventure on our own before heading home. Christine was able to pull together this extra excursion for us on very short notice, which was very much appreciated. All of the travel plans she arranged proceeded seamlessly. The African hospitality, accommodations, meals and activities she selected were all stellar. We especially enjoyed the Zambezi River cruise which was magical. The guided walk of Victoria Falls was an adventure. Water levels were at maximum capacity so the falls was truly an auditory, visual and very wet experience, even with rain ponchos.The wildlife viewing at Chobe was exceptional. All of the guides were wonderful, with so much knowledge, going out of their way to optimize our experiences on game drives and river cruises. We were closer to lions, elephants and hippos than I ever could have imagined. They also provided so much information on plants, birds, and reptiles so there was never a dull moment, even when the big animals were being shy.Our thanks to Christine who made our travel experience in Africa so accessible and carefree. We have so many wonderful memories thanks to her tremendous expertise and professionalism. She is truly the go to person for arranging a very personalized travel experience in amazing places.
Christine's response: Glad to hear that you had such a memorable safari and enjoyed all the experiences Vic Falls and Chobe have to offer! And thank you for your kind words - it was an absolute pleasure designing this part of your journey!
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!
