I want to thank you for leading such an excellent tour! I felt that this has been the best tour experience our students have enjoyed in years. How refreshing to deal with professionals who plan well and see service as their primary goal. You truly did all you promised to do and renewed my faith in touring.

Thank you for making my job as group leader so easy! The care which you took in planning our activities and in arranging our lodging and meals was clearly evident. The parents were impressed with the quality of your work. I look forward to traveling with you again.

We thank our Son Tours escort who took the time to stand in line for tickets so we did not have to. Thanks for always being one step ahead of us so the tour went smoothly. And thanks for making sure everything was perfect. The care and professionalism you and your staff have shown us, indicates what a top-notched company you have.
