2021 Trips

Europe is open for travel again! Although our spring/summer 2021 trips were cancelled due to the global pandemic, we were able to move forward with our Fall 2021 trips in the Luberon and Puglia– and we had a wonderful time! We hosted one group in the Luberon in September and three groups in Puglia in October. Kathy and daughter Kelly also spent several weeks in Normandy in August, researching a new trip in Normandy that we plan to offer in 2023.

Our Booking Process

Please contact us with questions or to make a reservation. You’ll always communicate directly with Kathy– not with a reservations desk or travel agent. We want to get to know you, answer all your questions, and make sure this is the right trip for you.

Our trips often book quickly. We run waiting lists and can add you to a waiting list if a trip is full or if you’re not ready to make a commitment now.

If you’re interested in a specific trip or if your group involves more than two people, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.

We know some travelers are still unsure about booking future travel. We ask for an initial deposit now to hold your place, with the balance due 90 days before the first day of the trip. We can put you on our waiting list if you’re not ready to make a commitment now and can contact you as the trip fills.

We’ll continue to monitor travel requirements and conditions, and we’ll make a decision if a trip can go forward 90 days in advance. We only want to continue with a trip if we can offer a safe, fun and interesting experience. If you’ve maintained your booking and European Experiences must cancel a trip, you’ll always receive a 100% refund.
