Here's what some of our clients say....


The tour in Bilbao was excellent.  Guests loved the Guggenheim and the town and the Pintox tasting was downright brilliant.  It was under a bandstand in the town square; we had it all to ourselves and it was a nice big space, where we could circulate, as well as have places to sit down at little tables.  It was our party place and it worked like a charm.  A large number of people, too many to record, told us it was the best shore excursion – ever.  Kudos to you!


Lovely working with you.

Helen Megan, Host on board the Celebrity Constellation

The Shore Excursion in Kusadasi, on the Regent Seven Seas Mariner departing June 26 was ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT!



In my 30 years as a travel agent and group leader I do not remember a better group tour. It had all the elements one would hope for; we enjoyed an experienced, enthusiastic (and patient) guide combined with the warmth of the local people, knowledgeable explanations of the historical sites and artifacts of great importance, a marvelous family prepared meal served under sheltering trees in a beautiful garden, lovely local dancers who entertained us, and encouraged us to join them in joyful celebration of the day. It could not have been better.



The members participating agreed that it was the best excursion they had ever experienced.The excursion was so well organized that the time flew by. The members were all favorably impressed with our excursion. Thank you for your organizational skills and timely follow up; as a new host your support was invaluable to me.


Throughout the rest of the week’s cruise members repeatedly stopped to tell me that their excursion for the day, while nice, did not measure up to the one they experienced in Ephesus on the Excursion.



You can be proud of the product and promote it with confidence. It will be my pleasure to work with you again in the future.

I just wanted to let you know that everybody had a fantastic time on the tour in Barbados! The guides, the driver as well as the staff at the stops for refreshments and lunch were all very kind, courteous and knowledgeable.


So myself and the participants would like to thank you very much for a job well done.

THANK YOU for an amazing shore excursion in Cartagena!  As you know we had 138 guests and it was a tremendous success.  Everyone loved the city, but I also received many compliments about your guides.  They were so friendly, professional and informative.  This was my first experience as a Host and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Your company did an outstanding job- which made us look good. So THANK YOU AGAIN!

I wanted to let you know that our excursion to Nazareth and Cana was over the top wonderful. Monette was a great guide and she just wowed the whole group. We had 31 attend and every single person enjoyed the experience very much. The driver Effe was, also wonderful. He was polite, kind and patient along with being an unbelievable driver! It was not a place I would want to be driving. Monette was aware of everyone's needs and patient beyond belief, her knowledge, expertise and sense of humor all made for a perfect day.



Thank you for this great day and experience!

Everything went very smoothly with our tour and our 2 tour guides and 2 bus drivers did an excellent job. Everyone had a wonderful time as we drove around the island and heard wonderful descriptions and stories by our guide Esther. Guests were totally pleased. The lunch provided was wonderful and seeing the plantation house and antiques was delightful! Everyone had great comments.


Thank you again for all your help and your quick replies to my many emails. You made it so easy for me.

The Fijian tour was fabulous. The tour guide and bus were waiting right on time and Cam, tour guide, did a great job. The villagers welcomed the group (35) with song and great smiles. After their introductions and traditional drink of Kava the guest were invited to dance and eat.


My guests have not stopped talking about the tour saying things like the best tour they have ever experienced, it was like leaving family, and this tour made the cruise great.



Thank you for your good work in making all this happen.



Steve Tanzer, Our Cruise Agent

Well, you have done it again! We had an absolutely fantastic tour in Kotor, Montenegro. Our guide was one of, if not THE best, guide we have ever had; I cannot say enough good things about him.
The tour itself was very interesting, giving us a great exposure to differing areas near Kotor. I have received many comment cards back from our guests, and ALL of the guests indicate that the excursion exceeded their expectations—many wrote additional comments about our guide and what a great job he did.
One comment our guide made to us was that his company LOVES to receive the bookings from Distinctive Voyages, and the guides are eager to get that assignment—kudos to you and your organization!
Thank you again for another job well done.
Joyce Williamson, Owner Alpha Travel

The shore excursion in Darwin went off without a hitch!!  It was a Very successful event for our group.  Everyone enjoyed the beautiful orchids at Jenny’s Garden and topped off the visit with a delicious snack of homemade scones, tea and jam.  The next stop was Crocodylus Park.  Everyone had a chance to be photographed with a baby croc and also, to feed the big guys. Most importantly the driver and guide were wonderful.  The guide gave a great synopsis of the area while we were driving.  Everyone commented on her knowledge and great personality. 


Thank you for your assistance, it has been a pleasure working with you.  I look forward to working with you again in the future. THANKS!
