  • Alicia H. — June 30, 2016 — Africa

    Riad Salam! I cannot say enough good things about our accommodation in Fes! We loved our room with its stunning Moroccan tile work and brass chandeliers and we marveled at the gorgeous interior courtyard while enjoying breakfast each morning and relaxing by the pool each evening. Our guide in Fes, Omar, was magnificent. He knew everyone and negotiated zealously for us with each vendor. Our cooking class at Maison Bleu with Chef Zohar was very fun! We loved following Zohor around the souks, collecting ingredients and she was an excellent teacher in the kitchen. In Marrakech, we had the best time at Kasbah du Toubkal. Our guide was incredibly patient and let us lounge in the mountain sun and air for hours!

  • Patrick P. — June 30, 2016 — Africa

    Charlie, our guide, was absolutely the best! We had my wife's mom (74) and dad (75) along, and he helped them thru the rain forest and every obstacle that we encountered. Barry, our guide in the rain forest, spotted so many lemurs and chameleons, and he also helped Charlie with mom and dad. Both were a wealth of information about the animals and the island. We all really enjoyed Lemur Island, where the lemurs would hop on your shoulders. I was amazed how poor the people of Madagascar were, and how poor the roads were; but Charlie navigated thru Tana and the road to the rain forest like a pro. The hotel and lodge we stayed at were first rate, and the service from the staff was excellent! Thanks to all connected to Kensington Tours for putting together such a wonderful trip!

  • Janet M. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    My experience with Kensington Tours for my Safari was the best planned trip I have ever taken. The coordination, experience and knowledge of personnel during our visits excelled. I had high expectations but it exceeded all my thoughts!

  • Padma P. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    We were very happy with all the arrangements that were made for us. We will always use you for all our future trips.

  • Eve T. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    We cannot emphasize enough how amazing our guide was, both in personality and knowledge, and how much he added to our trip. We truly enjoyed spending time with him, which is a very good thing since much of that time included some very long car rides! We also loved how most accommodations had so much personality and life to them. We much prefer unique smaller accommodations that almost feel hand-crafted over a more standard experience you can get almost anywhere.

  • Beth N. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    THE TOUR WAS EXTREMELY WELL ORGANIZED. VERY PROFESSIONAL AND KNOWLEDGEABLE GUIDES. Customer service throughout out South Africa was awesome!

  • Toni L. — June 15, 2016 — Africa

    Truly one of the most incredible experiences of my life's travels! Kensington guides were extremely knowledgeable and personable. I could only address them as guides for a few hours as they quickly became my friends. You customize every aspect of my trip to Rwanda and Tanzania to my liking. I could not have asked for more. Grateful for the professionalism and attention to detail as I traveled by myself as a female, always feeling safe. I wish I could find the words for accolades that adequately describe my journey.

  • Joel G. — June 08, 2016 — Africa

    Our guide, Fidelis was phenomenal. Not only a skilled tracker but a walking encyclopedia of history, geology, geography, animal behavior etc. Marc, our trip planner, was patient, understanding and pro-active in suggesting trip elements that he felt would meet our needs. Fantastic.

  • Nikhita D. — June 08, 2016 — Africa

    Our guide Steve was absolutely amazing. Have highly recommended the trip to many family and friends

  • David C. — May 19, 2016 — Africa

    We were very pleased with the accommodation, our tour guide, the tour bus and all other aspects of Kensington's tour in Morocco. Well done!
