Explore Europe in a different way
Do you want to join a morning stretching class on the sundeck while gently sailing past centuries-old castles?
Or hike through a vineyard set on rolling hills, to enjoy a tasting with the winemaker?
Perhaps you'd like to wind through the 48 hairpin turns on your road bike, as you climb up the famous Passo dello Stelvio.
Whether you just want to exercise enough to work off your 7-course farm-to-table dinner or go full gas to rack up PRs, there's a European vacation option that's perfect for you.

Find Your Way To Travel
I'm Pam de Jong, owner and travel advisor at Let's Go That Way.
There are few things that bring me more joy than helping someone discover their own favorite parts of Europe. I help active-minded travelers discover and book European river cruises and cycling vacations.
I know that river cruising and bike tours are unfamiliar vacation options for most people. With dozens of companies offering hundreds of itineraries, it can be intimidating to choose one. I am here to help you sift through the options and match you up with the perfect vacation.
From fitness & activity levels to the right vacation provider to maximizing your budget, I use my expertise and knowledge to help you sort through the choices. I can offer ideas and options you might not have even heard of, but which will enhance your experience. No more losing sleep worrying that you haven't covered all the bases. You have me....and I've got you!
I take care of making sure that everything from the flights and transfers, to the cruise check-in or bike fit is covered. You just pack your bags and have a complete set of details provided for you, so that you're fully prepared to enjoy a vacation that's well-planned and organized with plenty of room for spontaneous discoveries down that road less traveled (or ridden!).
My husband and I are avid pro cycling fans, so it's a rare trip that doesn't involve watching a bike race of some sort. And while my husband enjoys century rides on his carbon-fiber frame, I'm quite happy to cruise to the coffee shop on my e-bike, so I fully understand that some people want to be active but not athletic.
My favorite souvenirs are cowbells and FlikFlak watches.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS
What the client asked for…
Jim & Donna were wanting to immerse themselves in Ireland - the land of their heritage – with his sister Ann (and get in a round or two of golf). They wanted to allow themselves as much time for truly experiencing the country, while not worrying about logistical details. Staying in B&Bs was a priority, and a castle was on the wishlist.
What we booked for them…
After arranging flights that made the best use of their restricted date availability, we set to work, arranging boutique hotels and B&Bs across Ireland. In addition to finding the best value for their lodging, we helped them find the ideal rental car (including navigating sporadic age restrictions), and ensured that they had all they needed for a trouble-free self-drive trip. They were able to spend their time on the Emerald Isle soaking in the culture, scenery (and a tipple or two).
What they had to say…
"Pam, thank you is not adequate for the wonderful trip you put together for us! Aside from Donna’s health issues (and she was an absolute trooper), it could not have been better! Every plan you made was perfect. All our accommodations were wonderful—spotlessly clean and so friendly. We enjoyed our Jamison’s happy hours, our great meals, and our Bailey’s nightcaps. I had three things I hoped to accomplish on this trip: get a feel for the Irish countryside, meet and talk with the people, and enjoy the food and drink. We more than accomplished my goals. Your meticulous planning was greatly appreciated!"
