Reviews & Praise for Educational Travel Service & Group Tours

Educational Travel Service | Group Tour Reviews

We love our clients and our clients love us! When we plan a trip we have one goal in mind – to make it an outstanding experience. We want our travelers remember their trip with us as the best ever. We think we hit the mark – but don’t just take our word, read what our clients have to say………..

“The best trip we have ever been on, and that is not an exaggeration. This is group travel without feeling like we were being herded on a group tour.” ~ Nevin and Barb

“Wonderful trip, mind boggling views, beautiful landscapes – something we would never have done on our own. Memories to last a lifetime.” ~ Jack and Anne

“Just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, it got better!” ~ Sue and Bob

“Loved the cultural extras, beyond the tour sights, that gave one a greater insight into the people of New Zealand. Personalized and intimate experiences.” ~ Pam

“We are proud veterans of the 2009 SE Asia Tour sponsored by Educational Travel Service (ETS). Previously, we have traveled extensively, for example to Turkey, Brazil (into the innermost reaches of the Amazon), Botswana (including a remote safari experience), and many other far flung places, but always by ourselves and never in an organized tour. In fact, until this trip we prided ourselves on our independence, ‘tours, they are not for us’.

HOWEVER, this was one of the most magnificent trips ever. It was well organized. The tour leaders are low key but highly informed. And they linked us with the very best local guides. In Cambodia for example, not only did we see Angkor Wat up close and personal, but our local guide was a pure delight. As a treat we visited his village where he grew up as a boy, had a marvelous experience with the local school, and ended that treat with an ox cart parade through the village, waving goodbye to a multitude of warm smiling faces. Similarly, in Sa Pa, Hanoi, and Halong Bay, our guide was exceptional, a truly warm and helpful person.

We could go on and on. But the bottom line is that this was truly special. We loved every mile, every twist and turn, the food, the lodging, the education, the culture, and even our trip mates were special. They, all of them, added greatly to our traveling pleasure and remain good friends. No reservations in proclaiming this is a trip we would love to do again, regret it is over, and will standout as a lifetime highlight. This is one tour that we could not have matched on our own.”                                                 ~ Barbara and Phil W
