We'll never go anywhere else!


We have been on several holidays with Travelling Time, and had the best time...We always say it'll never get better, but it does. Lynda, Rachael and Shawn make a heck of a team. They go that step further each and every time, and look after us all beautifully - that's why so many of us come back again and again.

Oklahoma - much more than the song!


I have been many places in the United States and have travelled on a lot of escorted tours...This company - Travelling Time are the absolute best at what they do. I wanted to go to Oklahoma as it was a State that I had not been to before. We were taken to so many attractions that I could not begin to think it could get any better than this...It did, the best, best best company. From the start of the booking process to finishing our tour - they were friendly and helpful. The personal touch is not gone - it is at Travelling Time! I have come back and booked a further two tours with them before my ESTA runs out!!

Well done Travelling Time!


A group of us travelled on your Southern Style Tour… Absolutely brilliant from start to finish! A great value tour with music throughout. Great group who got on brilliantly from our welcome meeting to the end of the trip. Was so well organised, best guide and driver who catered for everyone. Way more included in this tour than in other similar sounding ones - and have to mention the bonus Travelling Time ”Surprises” which are thrown in for good measure. Had a blast, can’t wait until the next one! Travelling Time are the best tour company we have ever been with!
