Destination and Supplier Spotlight

Our March destination spotlight is Oberammergau, Germany.

Meet with Debra Ruzbasan of Ed-Ventures, Inc. on April 12 at Travel Tastings, Oberammergau!

Once a decade, the men of Oberammergau stop cutting their hair and beards on Ash Wednesday in preparation for the town’s Passion Play performances.  This serves the purpose of reminding them daily that they are readying themselves to participate in an accolade to God and honoring a promise made in 1633.   It also ensures an authenticity to the performance which will run the following year’s summer. 

Ed-Ventures, Inc is preparing to participate in their fifth Passion Play cycle.   They are working with travel agents, churches and group leaders to schedule custom tours into the available ticket blocks.  They have also begun to take reservations for some scheduled group tours.  You’ll want to make your reservation early-before this limited space fills up.

Debra Ruzbasan will be presenting the lovely town of Oberammergau, the highlights of the Passion Play, and some of the itineraries Ed-Ventures has created to experience the event.  These tours range from an exploration of southern Germany to a visit to walk in the footsteps of Jesus in the Holy Land, followed by the Oberammergau experience.    A list of tours currently available can be found at

Debra is the regional sales representative for Ed-Ventures, a Rochester, MN based custom group tour operator.  A life-long Hoosier, she has lived for extended periods in Europe and Asia and traveled extensively through those regions.  She also enjoys traveling domestically and in Canada and the Caribbean.  She’s made it to six of the seven continents…so far!

Read a review from one of our recent group organizers:

Top Producers Trip was a success!

Reviewed By Kayla - Maumee, OH | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico

I am a communications coordinator and my office just took a Top Producers cruise. Sarah was our travel agent and she was outstanding! She made sure everything was done and made the experience seamless for me. It was a pleasure to get to know and work with her. She went the extra mile in making this trip for our group of 20 as easy as possible. She was excited for us and made sure we had a blast. Sarah is thoughtful, organized, kind and extremely easy to work with. I have received overwhelming positive feedback from our group about Sarah and the whole experience. We had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend Sarah Krafty and Krafty Travel!

I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Sarah Krafty responded:
