Barbara was born in Phoenix and is a second-generation Arizonan. Prior to joining Bon Voyage Travel, she was an active volunteer in many local charities and organizations, including St. Elizabeth of Hungary Clinic and the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus. In addition, Barbara booked travel for her two sons' soccer teams. Barbara has traveled widely in Europe, including a visit to northern Italian cities: Bologna, Florence, and Milan. She especially enjoyed a Rhine River cruise with Uniworld. In addition, a Scandinavia and Russia cruise with Celebrity Cruises offered a marvelous opportunity to visit St. Petersburg. She has also toured England, Ireland, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Recently, Barbara took a memorable 14-day Southeast Asia cruise with Oceania Cruises. She enjoyed the smaller size of the Nautica, the informality on board, and the exceptional food and service. Of all the ports on this itinerary, Singapore was her favorite. She also previously toured New Zealand. In this hemisphere, Barbara has visited Mexico several times, with Cabo San Lucas being her favorite city. She also cruised to the Caribbean with Holland America. In California, she appreciated the informal atmosphere and marvelous service on board one of Cruise West's itineraries to the Wine Country. Finally, a visit to the interior of Alaska (including Denali National Park, Anchorage, Dawson City, and Skagway) taught her the value of the cruise tour experience in Alaska. Of all her cruise experiences, Barbara prefers small ship cruising because of the relaxed atmosphere among guests and staff.

While I’ve been to Russia and experienced its culture and beauty, I would love to revisit on a river cruise. The beauty of a river cruise is the smaller ship size. This allows you to visit cities that an ocean cruise simply cannot. I would get the opportunity to see so much more of Russia that I was not afforded on my previous visit.

Barbara Eischeid has always been excellent. She planned a vacation of a lifetime for my family 3 years ago to Costa Rica and, more recently, put together a very short notice trip to Hawaii. She’s the best! I have referred her and will continue to do so! - Nancy G.
