The service and accommodations on the boat were flawless and the food was wonderfully prepared. Kieron Keady from Expanding Horizons made sure that every guest had an exceptional vacation full of wonderful sites and fantastic memories. We look forward to our next travel adventure with Expanding Horizons!” — B & L Van Vechten / Castle Rock, CO

“My husband and I have traveled with Expanding Horizons for the last two years. We have done a Rhine River Cruise with their wine tours. Kieron was wonderful and the trip was well run. The arrangements with their office were easy through email. Then we also traveled with them to South Africa. That was a trip of a lifetime. I would highly recommend them for any trip and especially wine tours. They definitely provide world class service.” — R & M Zaino / Woodstock, IL

Ruhe / Winter Springs, FL

“We have utilized Expanding Horizons for several trips, most recently a spectacular trip down the Rhine River. The team provides outstanding customer service at every step: thorough planning, communication, and execution of each tour we have taken. We have already booked our next trip to Europe in 2019 with Expanding Horizons and can’t imagine using anyone else.”  — T & K Freiedrich / Indian Rocks Beach, FL


Testimonials from Winery Owners

“Expanding Horizons did an outstanding job organizing and coordinating a Rhone River cruise for our wine club. Every aspect of the week-long adventure was well thought out and explained to us so we knew exactly what to expect and how to prepare. They were a tremendous help in making travel arrangements, especially for a few members who signed up late.  We’re looking forward to our next cruise with them!” — Peter Spann, Spann Vineyards / Sonoma, CA

“Our King Frosch Wine fans became even bigger fans after spending time with us on a Rhine River wine cruise organized by Expanding Horizons.  Kieron and his team handled all the details without a hitch. We truly appreciated all the attention to detail and the lengths to which they went to ensure we had a great time. If you are even thinking about organizing a wine tour for your customers, Expanding Horizons is the right choice.  They are experienced and they know all the secrets and tips to making your travel stress-free and fun. The way it should be!” — K & K Bellinghausen, Owners King Frosch Wines / Laguna Niguel, CA

“We’ve participated in two river cruises (the Danube and Rhine) organized by Expanding Horizons with Ama Waterways.  The word of mouth from our first group of voyagers tripled the size of our second cruise and a large percentage of our original wine club travelers repeated for our second expedition with Ama and us.  The quality of the service and food are truly exceptional and the thoughtful consideration of the staff and crew is a marvel.  From the details of shipboard comfort, exciting wines, and the intelligently organized shore excursions this is a truly class act.  We eagerly anticipate future experiences with Expanding Horizons and Ama Waterways.” — Rob Griffin & Deborah Barnard, Proprietors, Barnard Griffin Winery / Washington State

“As a professional wine educator, I have traveled to many of the world’s great wine regions. Having hosted six wine-themed river cruises, I can confidently say it is the best way to experience the world of wine. A wine-themed river cruise allows guests to enjoy many exciting and unique wines, and walk in historic vineyards. Every day is a different enriching wine adventure, not to mention the amazing food and hospitality. In planning your wine river adventure, there is no better resource than Expanding Horizons… hands-down they are the best in this specialized area of travel. This is a must experience for any lover of wine and the finer things in life.” — Barry Wiss, CWE, CSS, President – Society of Wine Educators, Vice President of Trade Relations / Trinchero Napa Valley Winery

“Expanding Horizons offered unparalleled, responsive customer service to us as we organized our trip. I would definitely use their services again. The Danube river cruise they organized was fabulous as we were on a small ship that offered finely prepared food & attentive, detail-oriented service. Traveling with our wine club members was great fun and we all discovered new sights and wines together. We couldn’t ask for a more enjoyable experience!”— Annette Hoff, Winemaker and Operations Manager, Cima Collina Winery / Marina & Carmel Valley, CA
