Perfectly planned trip Scotland/Ireland 2023

14-Apr-2023

Perfectly planned trip. It was my retirement trip with my wife and Conor did an amazing job from start to finish. We went to two cities in Scotland then flew to Dublin and rented a car for 2 weeks. We had an amazing time. Conor texted us everyday to see how we were getting along and to make suggestions for sights to see and good places to eat. We are forever grateful.

Outstanding experience!

05-May-2023

Just returning from an amazing Ecuadorian vacation (Quito and Galapagos Islands), beautifully orchestrated by GDT. They mastered the details - accommodations, meals, activities, local guides - all top notch. I have nothing negative to say. Being a less experienced traveler, GDT's care in planning, ease of availability, and passion for sharing the best of our world, at your pace, instilled confidence. Yes, you can be a world traveler, too! I highly recommend GDT, and will definitely use them again on my next excursion.

Above & Beyond our wildest dreams!

13-Mar-2023

Global Dream Travel made our vacation amazing! Conor & Adam were top of the line from the very beginning with the logistics, research and planning the itinerary to include every experience we were hoping to have. What we didn't expect were all the extras that came from Global Dream Travel (Conor & Adam's) long time experience, connections and going above and beyond our wildest dreams! If we did this on our own it would have taken a lot of research and time to have a good trip. With Global Dream Travel and very little work on our end, we had an EXCEPTIONAL trip. There were sights and experiences we never could have even known existed without their expertise. For example; enjoying an elegant lunch in a castle, on top of a mountain, overlooking a pristine Lake and the Alps as a backdrop! This is just one of the countless surprises we encountered as well as the continued help and guidance navigating a foreign country with all the nuances one can never fully account for. Global dream travel did all of this seamlessly and with ease, laughter, no worries and complete and utter enjoyment. Thank you so much for a dream come true! We cannot wait for our next dream vacation with you!

You don’t have to worry about anything. They have plans in place and you just enjoy the experience

06-Apr-2023

Global Dream Travel gave me the best experience of my life! I’ve never been to Europe and I can’t say enough positive things to express how wonderful it was. We had tour guides at each country to give historical and current information. That was all prearranged for us. Hotels were also prearranged and were outstanding! To say this was a trip of a lifetime is an understatement. Without Global Dream Travel, it would have been ok but stressful getting to and from places. Finding hotels and places of interest, restaurants, getting to and from airport was all taken care of. We didn’t have concerns about anything. I will never travel without Global Dream Travel planning our dream trip!! Thank you Conor! We had the best time.

The people of Ireland were the high point.

13-Sep-2022

Overall we saw and experienced a lot of Ireland in our recent two week tour. We were able to meet many people as Conor, our guide and driver engaged them in conversation and enhanced our experience even further. He placed us in hotels that were all 4 star or better. In each overnight stop the restaurants recommended were very high quality. His experience showed in so many ways. We were in the more crowded venues before the tour buses showed up and always seemed to be one step ahead of the crowds. We were given lots of free time to explore towns and villages on our own and the schedule allowed flexibility and selection of the venues to be visited. Unusual in tour we never felt rushed, he was very sensitive to our needs and changed plans quickly if we wanted to see something not on the schedule. The tour vehicle was small for our group but it did allow us to get into some sites easier. The follow up after the tour was amazing. He helped us in our travel plans when the airlines went down and was there before during and after the tour when we needed help. Highly recommend this company.
