Reviews from Travellers on this Tour

Loved it all!

08-Oct-2023

This tour was a first for me - even although I had done many escorted tours, none were as comprehensive as this one. From my initial enquiry to the end of the tour, I felt I was looked after and valued by the Travelling Time team. There was so much included in the price and we were treated to a few of the Surprises and extras promised at the time of booking (I won't spoil the surprise here - but well worth waiting for) I would recommend both this tour and this company to anyone. I have already booked again for 2024.

Had a blast...great group, great company! We visited everywhere we wanted, had loads of time to explore and never felt rushed like other tours we have been on. Travelling Time are really flexible and a friendly company...will be back next year on Cal-Neva Calling - can"t wait!
