The Rhine 2018
Master Gardener Study Tour
Come join us on the horticulture study tour aboard the brand new AmaKristina August 20 -27, 2018. We have reserved the entire ship for our Master Gardeners and their guests, but some of the categories have already filled up. The trip begins in Amsterdam and ends in Switzerland. I would suggest you book your rooms now, and then add any pre or post tours later. I am working with the ship to plan some additional gardening options while on board the boat, but also for before and after tours. While all of our garden tours are fabulous, many have found that a river cruise makes things much more relaxed since we don't have to pack and unpack every day or two. I have asked Michelle to add the gratuities to the cost of the trip. Those of you who registered early, this will be an addition, but since we have to pay them anyway, the basic fees will be pre-paid before you ever go. If you want to add additional tips for exceptional service that can be done during the tour.
Complete Trip Details
Amsterdam is a beautiful city to get started in. While many go for the tulips in the spring, summer is beautiful as well. You may choose to do the pre-tour options that AmaWaterways offers, or you can go early and do your own tour. You do not have to decide now.
I strongly encourage travel insurance. Michelle can provide you the information. The cost varies based on the level of insurance you purchase and your age. If you have a pre-existing condition, you need to book the insurance within a week of booking the trip, but you can add it closer to the tour if you are not worried about any pre-existing conditions. I usually get it within a month of the trip. It can help with delayed trips, medical emergencies, lost luggage, etc. You may purchase it from another provider or go through Michelle. Your choice.
