Additional Information

Ellen has been a broker of European canal barge vacations for twenty five years, but does not consider it “work.” It has been a pleasure to welcome her many guests to that “perfect barge,” while offering a high degree of strategic advice and individual attention. Ellen thinks of herself as opinionated - and her customers seem to like her just that way. Ellen has been sending travelers to her favorite destination – Europe – since 1978, when she began her career as a retail travel agent in Chicago. Professional and personal jaunts took her all over Europe and the Caribbean, but as wonderful as this life was, when asked in 1985 to launch a small barge in Burgundy, Ellen jumped at this intriguing opportunity. Her professional and personal life would become increasingly intertwined with the fledgling canal barge industry. Since then, Ellen has served thousands of guests, while at the same time helping many barge owners launch their vessels and publicize what was special about each one.
