Travelers Are Talking....

"Thank you very much for all you did to coordinate what was a very special get together for my family and myself. We have been looking forward to this trip for some time and it truly exceeded our expectations. It was extremely impressive how you were able to keep everything moving on schedule with (as far as we could tell) no glitches. That was quite a feat considering how many groups you were managing and all the different directions in which we were all going.

Thanks again for your hard work. I wouldn’t be surprised if our family is signing up for another trip sometime down the road."

- Frank H. 


"Mabel and I want to thank you for making our first trip to New York City a fabulous and enjoyable time! The shows were awesome, and the tour of the city was perfect. We especially enjoyed the free time we had to walk and see sights on our own. Your attention to all the details did not go unnoticed, and it is obvious that you take great pride in what you do! Your support left us with nothing to do except enjoy the experience! We now know why it is called “Beyond" Group Travel!"

- John K. 


 

"I sincerely appreciate your diligent efforts in planning and genuine enthusiasm for every detail and activity...Your initiative to do whatever is necessary to ensure each traveler feels special and that they enjoy a truly premier experience is appreciated. The attention to details was remarkable. In short, we felt very spoiled!

Thanks again for a wonderful experience in New York!"

- Porter G. 


 

"Thanksgiving in NYC with our children and grandchildren ranks up top with any trip we have ever taken. We were given all the help we needed before and during the trip. Beyond Group Travel's planning left nothing to chance and everything ran like clockwork. It was a first-class trip provided by a first-class operation."

- Cathy B.


 

"You have once again performed your magic and made New York City a place where adults can have as wonderful a Thanksgiving and Christmas time as when we were children. Betty has seen first hand why I was so excited about once again being with you. She loved our trip and has been raving about it to all that will listen.

Once again, thank you for being you, and taking us "Beyond Group Travel"."

 - Tony G.
