Golf & River Cruising with Avalon Waterways

We are now taking registrations of interest for this amazing Golf & River Cruising tour with Avalon Waterways. This 17 day cruise, escorted by Carolyn Hedley, will have you sailing on the Magnificent Rivers of Europe from Budapest to Amsterdam.

Our first game will be in Budapest where we embark the ship and we will play 4 other courses along the way.  This will still allow you time to enjoy the iconic sightseeing and the River Cruise, and this of course means it is perfect for your non-playing partner as they can still enjoy the included sightseeing while you are playing golf.

Carolyn Hedley Owner of helloworld Travel Hobsonville will be escorting this tour.  Carolyn has been interested in golf since she was around 9 years old.  She learnt to play after following her father around the golf course at Pauanui hitting the odd ball progressing up to playing a whole round of 9 holes.  Many years later she is now a member at Huapai Golf Club and since our borders have been closed, she is working hard on her handicap.

Carolyn has been in the Travel Industry 30 years and is a Cruise Expert, obtaining her Masters Certification with CLIA 3 years ago, this means she has experienced many cruises and continuously studies different cruise lines and what they can offer to her clients. She came up with the idea of combining her two passions of golf and cruise to create a one off holiday for her clients.  What better way than to cruise down the magnificent rivers of Europe and play some of Europe’s awesome golf courses.
