  • Karen S. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    My trip to Scotland was absolutely wonderful. All the hotels were perfectly located, clean, and had wonderful amenities. The guides were exceptional and really knew Scotland and so much of the history. My Kensington representative, Lynne, was very helpful, very responsive, and was tremendously patient while I made numerous changes to the itinerary. It was a superb experience and one that I will never forget.

  • Ronald D. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Christian was our driver/guide. He was knowledgeable, thorough, caring/considerate and gave of his time greatly.

  • Meghan B. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    My husband and I had the time of our lives in the UK and Ireland! The tours that were set up for us were exactly what we hoped for and more. We learned so much and saw so much! Very impressed! I have already told others about Kensington tours. If you book, you won't be disappointed! Thank you, Kevin!

  • Diana G. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Our tour guide in Roma,Francesco, was the best guide we ever had on this and our last trip that was provided by Kensington. Our other guides were also very good, but Francesco was outstanding.

  • Darron J. — July 20, 2016 — Europe

    Our guides were excellent. Noel Clawson in Wales was friendly, knowledgeable, and just a pleasure to be around. Glen Jones for our day with him was also excellent and I would highly recommend a guided tour of London. Much more efficient than the hop on/hop off tour.

  • Edward G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    All of the guides were friendly, knowledgeable, and conducted themselves in a professional manner. Both Dino Quaas and Andreas Zurner were extremely helpful and added significantly to the tour.

  • Major J. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    Our honeymoon that was setup and organized by Kensington Tours was absolutely amazing. All the details were taken care of and made our trip pleasant and stress free. Our accommodations were top notch with beautiful views located close to our destinations. Our guides and trip advisors were very knowledgeable. I would recommend Kensington tours to all my friends and family for future use as a travel agency as well as they will be our first choice in our future travel plans.

  • Sara G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe

    Chantal designed an amazing trip for my sister and I! She was so helpful from start to end! Always answered me so promptly and walked me thru everything when booking! I can't wait to plan my next trip with Chantal and Kensington Tours

  • Terry G. — July 15, 2016 — Europe
