What some of our customers have to say…

★★★★★ Well another fantastic vacation has come to an end. The tour of Italy was awesome, as have all the other vacations we have taken with Collins Tours – Cape Cod, Cherry Blossom (Washington and Williamsburg), New York Christmas Lights, Newfoundland and St. Pierre Miquelon, Ireland and Scotland, a Caribbean Cruise and last but not least the QE II Cruise. The most amazing thing that happened on each and everyone of the tours is that the sun shone everyday! Even the trips that we expected to see some rain, like Newfoundland and Ireland, had record high temperatures and sunshiny days. Along with the excellent weather Collins Tours provided exceptional care to all, outstanding sightseeing, knowledgeable tour directors, and at the same time made you feel pampered and well taken care of. Collins Tours is a first rate tour company! Looking forward to many more tours with Collins Tours!

Sunshiny Days

After six trips to New York City with Collins Tours, we are convinced this is the best way to travel!

We continue to book our trips to New York through Collins Tours and Consulting because it’s easy and stress free. There are no worries about transportation and a changing itinerary of activities to keep the trip new and fresh every time!

The bus tours have offered the perfect venue for annual mother and daughter trips. We feel valued by Collins and there is no shortage of customized service.

Our experience with Collins Tours and Consulting has been consistently positive. We would recommend the New York City Tour to anyone travelling to the city for the first time or to looking to experience the city from a new point of view.

Hi, Just a note to say thanks for a Fabulous Trip. Vi and I were very happy with the way things went especially since Vi recommended Collins to the other four Ladies from the Valley. The bus was great and George kept his baby spotless, he was always pleasant and courteous and handled his baby like a dream. We heard nothing but praise for the Trip and your Company. Looking forward trip and the presentation in Halifax about the Cross Canada Trip, we heard a few mention that they would be interested. Oh yes, Tom North was an excellent guide, highly recommend him for further tours of that area. Again thanks for supporting Vi’s comments about Collins.

Hi there,

We just returned from the One Direction bus tour to Boston and I wanted to pass on my feedback. Paul was a delight! Very charismatic, professional and organized. He kept everyone on schedule and has a great sense of humour. Granville was a terrific driver – very personable and professional! The kids and I loved every minute of the tour! The hotel was nice, the shopping was awesome and the concert was amazing!

Many, many thanks for such a great experience!

I will definitely travel with you again. Thank you for a most enjoyable travel experience which was greatly facilitated by the welcoming telephone response from Lauren; the detailed planning and complete itinerary; Carl and Nick: our efficient tour guides who kept us informed and entertained; our competent bus driver Joey; and, also the camaraderie of our fellow travellers – many thanks to Lucie for her songs and her jokes. We all felt secure enough to sleep on the bus.

It was a memorable, comprehensive, worry-free experience. The accommodations and food were of excellent quality. The boat and other tours were well-planned and executed. The people of Newfoundland were warm and welcoming. The music was excellent. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking. The weather was ideal. What more can you ask for? It was my first visit to Newfoundland and it won’t be my last. I would like to visit Newfoundland with my grandchildren. There is so much to enjoy and to learn.

I have visited many other places in the world. Newfoundland has an emotional component that I did not find in those other places. My favourite place was L’Anse aux Meadows. When I stood at the settlement and felt the soft breeze blowing across my face I had an idea of what it must have felt like to the Vikings, who after an arduous sea-voyage, set foot for the first time on that sweet piece of land.
We were very lucky that we accomplished all that we wanted to see and do. The trip was a great success.

Congratulations! Keep up the good work.

Dear Greg and staff of Collins Tours:

Larry and I had the most amazing experience on our recent trip to Hawaii with Collins Tours.  It was truly the trip of a lifetime and we are so grateful we decided to do the group tour with Collins.  Everything was top notch and so professionally done.  We didn’t need to worry about a single thing and we saw and experienced so much more of the “Aloha Spirit” of Hawaii than we could ever have if we had traveled on our own.

We both thoroughly enjoyed each day of our trip.  Every last detail was handled with true professionalism and such friendly expertise that made for a fantastic experience.  There were so many highlights of the trip, we would have a hard time picking one.  We enjoyed the organized tours, fun group dinners, seeing volcanoes, and craters, Diamond Head, Dole Plantation, the wonderful luau, botanical gardens, waterfalls, and, of course, Pearl Harbour.  The cruise was an amazing experience, which allowed us to see the best of each of the islands.  And we appreciated all the tips and information you shared before we boarded the ship.

Each contact with staff at the office while arranging the trip was also a very positive experience.  Everyone we dealt with was pleasant and helpful and with a predicted blizzard the day before we were to fly out, Dave was so patient with us frantic travelers and booked our earlier flights and made all the arrangements so we didn’t miss our connections.  This was our first indication that traveling with your company was going to be a very good experience.

Thank you for everything you did to make our trip the amazing experience we had dreamed of.  Mahalo!

I am one of the fortunate people who were on your Alaska tour with Nick Kotsabasakis in early August. I cannot say enough good things about the tour or Nick. It was my partner & my first tour & will certainly not be our last, always with Collin’s. It was super value for the money, top of the line accommodations, & Nick went above & beyond to keep us all happy. Thank you for this amazing experience.
