- Mr. and Mrs. PriorBasel to Amsterdam, 2013
This was our first trip to Europe and our first organized tour, so we were quite apprehensive. Christine in the office answered our questions and concerns with good humour and efficiently arranged everything. Your brochure and road shows promise a lot - it was hard to believe these expectations were met and surpassed. It was a wonderful journey, and I can’t imagine changing anything. Your tour directors were first rate – Denis is a real professional, John had a great sense of humour, and I especially enjoyed Helene and her encyclopedic knowledge of history.

I recently returned home from my first ‘journey” with your company, cruising the Waterways of Holland and Belgium. From my departure at Pearson International to my final arrival there, I was pleasantly and constantly surprised by the care, attention and detail and warmth of your entire staff and the crew of the Da Vinci. It made my first trip aboard the ship and I was reluctant to leave my new home away from home on April 29th in Arnhem. The quality of your service far exceeded my expectations and I am already planning my next journey with you. I made new and lasting friendships and have many pictures, videos and memories to warm me during the months to come. Thank you so very much. Sincerely,
- Mr. and Mrs. BarnardBasel to Amsterdam
We recently completed the river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. It was the best trip we have ever been on. Every detail was taken care of from the time of booking by Denis to the welcome back by Jerry. We enjoyed Jeremy’s family touch for the first part of our journey and then the fun and care provided by Denis, John and Heleen on the remaining part of the journey. What an incredible team. And then those special touches… a plant delivered to our room in honour of our 50th anniversary and that followed by a special celebration in the dining room with a cake for all anniversary couples. We are referring several of our friends to your company… you just know how to do it right! Thank you and we hope to travel again with you.

Now that we are back home, my daughter and I are reflecting on a wonderful and meaningful experience that included the 100th Anniversary of the Great War along with the Waterways of the Netherlands and Belgium. Neither of us had ever been to Europe before so this was an interesting experience and a fantastic holiday as only Jerry Van Dyke and his staff could provide. Jeremy and all the guides were superb so that is why we will continue to promote “Journeys by Jerry Van Dyke” and hope to travel with you in the future. Also, thank you Christie for all the help you gave us in preparing for this holiday.
- Mr. and Mrs. MoxonSaar, Mosel & Rhine, 2014
Our recent journey with our friends at Jerry Van Dyke was as enjoyable as our first one eleven years ago and all the other in between. Thank you for responding to your captains and taking us into the quiet, narrow rivers where the only sound at times was that of hundreds of birds in the forests and where we could almost shake hands with riverside walkers. It was wonderful to again have Glee as our tour manager supported admirably by Josie and Jeremy.
- Mr. and Mrs. MagnussonNorwegian Coastal Voyage, 2014
What a beautiful and great trip we had to Norway. The scenery was beyond description. We could not have asked for better weather, as we understand from the locals this was a very unusual thing. We took pictures, but the mental picture is worth a 1,000 words. Thank you very much for all your help and your organizational skills are excellent. Sally was one of the best journey managers we have ever had, she went over and beyond to help people who needed assistance and was so very patient, even the minor issues, she handled them so professional. We did not get a chance to thank her personally in the Toronto Airport so if you could send her an email and give her our thanks and hope to have her for a guide in the future.
