  • Loretta H. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    Very enjoyable trip. We had a private guide and driver. All very knowledgeable. Always met us at the airport and even waited for us when our flight was delayed. The price was well worth the money spent. Thank you Kensington Tours!

  • Marnie T. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    The local guides were very sweet, knowledgeable and accommodating to our itinerary desires.

  • Diana S. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    The local guides in Japan were all so pleasant and very knowledgeable of the areas we visited. They often shared personal stories which further enhanced our enjoyment of the tours.

  • Byron M. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    That was the single greatest experience of my life.

  • James G. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    We were very impressed by the quality of the tour. Everything worked as planned - our guides met us on time every time, the hotels were well selected and met our needs precisely, the itinerary was well chosen. We would like to call out the expertise and friendliness of our guides. They added immensely to the success of the trip. All of the guides were great but we want to especially express appreciation for the guides in Ho Chi Minh City and Angkor Wat. They helped make us feel like we were speaking with friends about the countries and places they lived in.

  • Jessica A. — May 19, 2016 — Asia

    My guide, Michi, was an absolute doll! She was so helpful and so accommodating when I wanted to alter the itinerary. She went above and beyond to ensure I had a great experience. Jessica Clements is a saint. I don't know how she deals with me and my 1,000,000 questions and tendency to change my mind every other day. Rock on.

  • Ann S. — May 18, 2016 — Asia

    Fabulous Japan tour! Loved our stays in Tokyo, Hakone and Kyoto. Superior hotels! Top-notch guides! Exciting sites! Thank you to our outstanding agent, Sunita Singh, for this extraordinary experience! We've already booked out next Kensington Tours trip.

  • Katherine H. — May 13, 2016 — Asia

    I have taken several trips with Kensington and they never disappoint. The attention they give shows itself in every facet of the trip.

  • Olga S. — May 12, 2016 — Asia

    Amazing trip!!!!! I'm in love with Laos and Thailand. Excellent service, tours, and accommodations. Flawless from start to finish!!!!!

  • Robert G. — May 12, 2016 — Asia

    Our guides were AMAZING. I'd like to recognize Nina in Yangon, Zin in Mandalay/Monywa, Swe in Bagon, and Jue Jue in Inle Lake. It was clear that the main priority of our guides was that we had an excellent vacation and that we saw and did the things we wanted. Their attention to detail and desire to satisfy were very much appreciated. We loved Myanmar.
