Rates and dates updated for 2010:

We have now updated our trips with 2010 rates and dates.
You can also see a list of all new trips online for 2010.


Create your own brochure:

We already mentioned this new function on our website ....  It is now working very well. Have another look at it - it really is a cool feature.
While browsing, you will be able to “ADD Trip to Print Brochure” ... it will be added to a “shopping cart” .  When done ... just click on the shopping cart. Here you have the opportunity to add more trips or just print to a PDF file and save it to your computer for printing or viewing. This will eventually replace our Print Brochures in an effort to “Go Green”.  We should have the new brochure option available online in the next days, so have another look on next Monday !
The first module is online (still in Beta testing - more cool features to be added) at:
If you select a lot of trips, be prepared to wait a few minutes for the PDF brochure to be processed.


Going Green - Update:

We will be reducing our print brochures for next year to about 48 pages. The new brochure will be more of a "Picture Book" of our available offers. We will no longer be listing exact rates and dates - just some general guidelines. It is meant to be more of a "Introduction" and you have then the opportunity to get all the details online.
For the time being we still have an number of 2009 brochures left that you can order via the internet. If you would like to receive a new 2010 brochure (available by late January), please let us know and we will put you on the list.
