  • Patrick T — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Preparations were excellent - we really appreciated the attention to detail. The VIP Visa handling in Vietnam & Cambodia was much appreciated also. Guides were outstanding - particularly Borin in Cambodia.

  • Charles M. — September 22, 2017 — Asia

    We had a GREAT time on this tour with our granddaughter. All the tour guides were knowledgeable. Thanks for planning this great trip for us.

  • Levi P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    Used Kensington Tours to book my honeymoon in the foreign speaking country of Thailand. It was great to not have to worry about transportation or accommodation. Our itinerary was amazing but the best part was probably our English speaking guides. We had three separate guides and each of them became like close friend to us. The travel was long but I wouldn't trade our experience in Thailand for anything.

  • Karen K — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    I went to private tour w Kensington to Japan for 3 weeks last month. It was incredible. My daughter was studying in Niigata so I wanted her to hook up with me periodically throughout my tour to see all the highlights of Japan. It worked out perfectly. I'd personally like to thank Adam Watkins who was incredible with detail, kindness and professionalism. The guide selection was a perfect fit. I cannot say enough about my and my daughter's experience with Kensington Tours. A trip of a lifetime.

  • Debra Y — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    All the accommodations were great. The guides were very personable and knowledgeable. As a woman traveling alone, I never felt unsafe.

  • Kathleen P — August 22, 2017 — Asia

    My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Japan with Kensington Tours. Our private tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and charismatic. We cannot wait to make a return visit to Japan! Thank you again for helping us create an amazing honeymoon.

  • Ellen Weisstein — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    Poopsha in Thailand was extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great company!!!!

  • Kelly Jennings — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    This was the first time I used a tour company and loved it. We REALLY REALLY appreciated Phusa in Chiang Mai, when she suggested the Silk factory tour and Pottery factory tour, that was great.

  • Sydni Smith — May 23, 2017 — Asia

    All travel guides were excellent!! Mutchalin from Chiang Mai is new to Kensington.She should be used by you again. Excellent
