    Jessica Clements was wonderful to work with and was very responsive. Everything that was arranged went smoothly. All of the guides were so knowledgeable and really helped us get a sense of Poland's history and feel a connection with the country from which our ancestors came. This was the first time we ever had used private guides and we got so much more out of the trip than if we would have just decided to do the sights on our own. We had an amazing trip full of memories for a lifetime. Thank you!

  • Jeanne C. — June 30, 2016 — Europe

    This was our first time using a tour company. It was fantastic to have guides and drivers to take us through our ambitious itinerary. Thank you for taking care of all the arrangements.

  • John D. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    Had a great trip to Spain and Portugal. All went well. No polishing points or constructive feedback to provide. This was the third trip with Kensington in 18 months and all were wonderful.

  • Kristian L. — June 30, 2016 — Europe

    It was our first trip to Italy. I can only describe my experience as exceptional. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. The tours were exceptional and very punctual. The accommodations and transportation were first class. I have already started to recommend Kensington tours and I will definitely will use them in my future trips.

  • Nancy H. — June 27, 2016 — Europe

    This was the second tour we have taken with Kensington Tours. This was very different from our first tour but just right for this time. My husband and I traveled with my 85 year old parents.The accommodations and the pace of the travel worked very well. Our guide, Dermot, was very friendly and very understanding of our special needs as well as very knowledgeable. I have already had further communication with him. Thanks for the memorable experience.

  • Molly P. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Our family loved our week in Iceland. I am 70 and our youngest is 9. Each activity was well suited for the whole group. We changed one event and Kensington Tours immediately helped us cancel one and sign up for a new adventure. When I had questions they helped me out. Their professionalism, kindness, and attentiveness made our trip a complete success. Thank you!

  • Tammy M. — June 22, 2016 — Europe

    Jessica Clements was a tremendous help as my husband and I planned our pre-cruise visit to Athens and the Peloponnese. Many thanks for all your efforts. We enjoyed our tours very much. Our guides, Niki Stavrakaki and Andronikos Sakatos, were phenomenal. Our drivers, Makias and Demetrios, were very professional and delightful gentlemen. We had a great time exploring many of the ancient sites we've dreamed of seeing for years.

  • Caroline W. — June 22, 2016 — Europe
