  • Susan C. — October 11, 2018 — Europe

    Working with Danny S. was a real pleasure. He was lovely, very professional and knowledgeable. Our trip was so enjoyable and stress free. Hotels were perfect, restaurants booked by Kensington were authentic and the food was excellent. The flamenco show was so much fun and the venue was relaxing and intimate. Our guides were prompt, smart and passionate about their country. A really wonderful group of individuals. It was very reassuring to know we always had a person on the ground to call if necessary. This was an A+ trip and we will always have wonderful memories of a beautiful country and it’s warm and welcoming citizens. My heartfelt thanks to Danny and all others who planned a perfect trip on our behalf. We look forward to another trip in 2019!

  • Marilyn K. — September 20, 2018 — Europe

    Our guides were knowledgeable and kind beyond expectation, and were extremely amenable to our requests. The tour expert was very patient and knowledgeable as well, and truly had our travel wishes in mind when creating our trip to Poland. It was a wonderful and amazing life changing experience!

  • Irene Y. — September 13, 2018 — Europe

    This trip was just what we were looking for, a private tour of England, Scotland and Dublin. Julie C. was awesome! She and I worked together to figure out what my family and I wanted to do. I could have never done it without her! The cars/guides were waiting at the airport for us. Everyone associated with Kensington Tours was so helpful and kind. The location of the 3 hotels, we stayed in, were amazing!! We walked everywhere! Each tour, we were scheduled for, went smoothly, and on time. The tour guides were so smart and informative about the places we went. I didn't stand in one hotel concierge line. My tickets and vouchers were printed out and in hand ahead of time. Julie even researched and scheduled horseback riding in the Dublin Mountains, which they hadn't handled before. What a highlight that was!! This trip was everything I asked for. I will be using Kensington Tours and Julie again!!

  • Lesley M. — September 04, 2018 — Europe

    We thoroughly enjoyed our entire trip to Greece. Everything went as planned, our hotels met and exceeded our expectations. The tour guides were all marvelous - knowledgeable, personal, patient, organized and pleasant to be with. And our sunset cruise in Santorini was superb - first class catamaran, crew and their other passengers were great to be with. We met a couple who also were frequent Kensington Tours clients and we all agreed you are our top choice when it comes to travel tours. Thank you for another unforgettable trip!

  • Ronnie B. — May 29, 2018 — Europe

    The entire tour was well planed. Jason and our European guides and drivers were wonderful and often went above and beyond what was expected. Everything was flawlessly executed and we would not hesitate to use Kensington again.

  • Priya K. — June 11, 2018 — Europe

    Everything went smoothly! From the pickups and drop offs from the airport and the tour guides being prompt. Will definitely be using Kensington for our next Trip!

  • Brooke R — May 14, 2018 — Europe

    Kensington did a phenomenal job planning our vacation. The logistics of getting from place to place was incredibly well planned. The tour guides were knowledgeable, fun and tailored our experience based on our interests. Hotel accommodations were incredible and Patrick answering our questions, provided information on several occasions and ensured our that all our requests were met. This was our second trip with Kensington and we will without a doubt utilize their services again!

  • Tracey M. — May 11, 2018 — Europe

    We had a wonderful and amazing trip to Italy! All planning was done with the upmost care down to the smallest detail. I would highly recommend Kensington Tours to all my friends! I am already planning my next trip!
