TravelKatz® Vacation Testimonials

I accompanied a group of 12 to Alaska this past summer.  We flew into Seattle, saw some of the sights, and then flew to Juneau to start our Adventure Cruise.  What a wonderful Adventure. We saw glaciers, hump-back whales and other fascinating things...we would do this again. Thank you for such a great time!

Sandy H, St Petersburg, FL

I cannot begin to tell you what a wonderful job you did organizing our trip. It absolutely was the best vacation I have ever had. This was my first time over seas and what a wonderful experience. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I am going through “James” withdraw today. He was an amazing tour guide and fit in so well with our group. I will definitely recommend you if I know of anyone thinking of going over to Ireland. Your country is so beautiful and everyone is so friendly. I can’t thank you enough for everything.

Jack & JoAnn Douglass, Miami, FL

I appreciated all the information that was given before I left on the trip. Our Guide, Jerry filled in all the other interesting information on what to expect. I felt safe, well feed and learned so much from a trip 45 mins from USA…I want people to see the beauty of the country, the people and their wonderful culture. I so loved the music. I am playing the CD’s often that I bought from the musicians. A trip I would like to do again. Thank you.
