  • Jennifer C. — August 10, 2018 — Asia

    Maria, our travel agent, was fantastic! She was extremely flexible to multiple requests. And, she produced an unforgettable vacation. Tajma, our guide in Thailand, was professional, knowledge, and a truly warm and wonderful person. She shared her country with us and answered countless questions. She went above and beyond what was required to make our trip special.

  • Emily G. — July 04, 2018 — Asia

    This trip was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The planning was incredibly simple and the final product was even better than I could have ever imagined. Our local guides seemed to be hand-picked just for us and they really went above and beyond to help make our trip not only unforgettable, but also very easy. Thank you for helping to create such a memorable experience. I would absolutely recommend Kensington to anyone looking to plan a trip.

  • Karli H. — August 04, 2018 — Asia

    We had an absolutely amazing trip - every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. We felt well taken care of, but at the same time our guides gave us space to enjoy the trip on our own at times. We are so happy that we booked through Kensington Tours, as all of the organization and planning was done for us - thanks for a great experience!

  • Janet T. — June 23, 2018 — Asia

    Our multi-generational family of 8 recently returned from an amazing escorted, personalized 12-day tour of Japan. The quality was everything we expected and hoped for. Our tour planner, Anne-Laure, was fantastic and so was our Japanese guide, Mayumi. Both were attentive to our interests, professional, knowledgeable and personable. Transportation was high quality and on-time. The diversity and pace of the activities made our trip interesting and memorable. Our guide was flexible and allowed us to fine-tune our itinerary to meet our individual preferences. We felt safe and well-cared for. Japan is a pristine and polite country with a lot of history and we enjoyed it very much.

  • Richard F. — May 15, 2018 — Asia

    I am at a loss in describing how perfect our trip was! Every single detail was taken care of and the activities were amazing!

    Our trip to Japan was awesome! We learned so much about the customs, food and spiritual life. We never had any concerns about where we needed to be or when, even with quite a few transfers.

    I have traveled all over the world with various travel companies. Kensington is ranked right at the top! Honestly could not have expected more than they provided.
