A message from Schilling/Riverdale Travel
In July 2018, Robert Herman, owner of Shilling Travel in Minneapolis, combined with Amy and Jose Ferreira to purchase and merge Riverdale Travel of Coon Rapids into one of the top travel agencies in the Twin City metro region. The combined business took the name Riverdale Travel going forward.
The business builds on the combined successes of Wilbur Schilling who founded Schilling Travel in 1924 and Sandy and Carol Anderson who founded Riverdale Travel in 1986.
