About Emily

My name is Emily, I am a member of the Epping Rotary Club. I have organised a Rotarian Exclusive River Cruise for members and their family and friends, that connects with the 2019 Rotary International Convention in Hamburg. A little bit about myself, I was first introduced to Rotary as a scholarship recipient from the Rotary club of Beecroft in 2008. I graduated from high school in 2010, and went into partnership with my mum and opened my own travel agency in 2015 after working as a mobile travel agent for just over 4 years. I have since joined the Epping Rotary Club, and been involved in the 2018 MUNA that was hosted by Epping Rotary. Since my start in Travel I have been lucky enough to continue my travels, that started from when I was an infant with my parents. To date I have explored 34 different countries, hundreds of cities, 36 cruises and a handful of coach tours. My destination knowledge is first hand and we pride ourselves on our moto “we know because we go”.

Rotarian River Cruise

One of Europe’s most legendary rivers awaits you on this exciting journey along the Rhine River, which begins in Switzerland and stops in France, Germany, and Holland!

After Arriving in Zurich the day before, board the exclusively charted Rotarian River Cruise on The Avalon Expression in Basel, Switzerland, then head for Breisach, Germany, located at the foot of the Kaiserstuhl Mountain on the French-German border. Here you’ll find the gateway to Germany’s Black Forest, an area of unrivalled natural beauty, best known for Black Forest ham, cherry cake, and the cuckoo clock. Continue your river cruise to Strasbourg, France, where you’ll be amazed by the red-sandstone gothic cathedral with ancient murals and the fascinating astronomical clock. Also, stroll through the lovely La Petite France district with its quaint shops, delightful bistros, and peaceful waterfront promenade. Visit the ruins of Heidelberg’s castle, towering magnificently over the city, and stop in Mainz for a guided walk and a visit to the captivating Gutenberg Museum. Next up is the charming wine town of Rüdesheim, and a visit to the unique Siegfried’s Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum to see the impressive collection of historical self-playing instruments. You’ll pass through the dramatic Rhine Gorge—the most beautiful stretch of the Rhine River where ancient castles stand on cliffs 400 feet above the water. Last stop in Germany is Cologne—a 2,000-year-old city known for its gothic architecture and famous twin-spired cathedral.

As an exclamation point to this wonderful Rhine river cruise, you’ll spend time in Holland’s popular, modern capital of Amsterdam. There is much to do with the world-famous museums and abundance of restaurants amongst the classic architecture and charming canals. The best way to see the treasures of this 700-year-old city is on a canal cruise along the elegant grachten lined with homes dating back to the city’s “Golden Age”. After disembarking in Amsterdam we will spend one extra night to ensure you get to explore Amsterdam at your own pace, then after breakfast you have the choice to continue onto Hamburg for the 2019 Rotary International Convention.

This exclusive Rotarian River Cruise is combining the best of both, benefiting Rotarians in the way of saving $$ off their travels, as well as a donation from each cabin is going to the travellers choice of Rotary Project. Early Bird Offers are on now providing each couple a $400 flight Credit, PLUS any solo travellers out there we still have no single supplement cabins available!
