Don’t Just Take Our Word For It…
Today is the last day of our 5-day excursion to The Big Apple! We have a stop at Independence Hall on the way through Philly. I’ve been on quite a number of trips like this over my 27 years as a band director and having the President of Group Travel Consultants, John DeCrotie, accompany my group every step of the way was hands down the best service ever from a group travel agency! It made it possible for me to feel like a participant, enjoying the sights and sounds of NYC, and not always the person in charge every step of the way! When the director has fun, it was a great trip! Thanks John and GTC!
In the past five years our school has used them (GTC) to book almost ten different trips to Hawaii, Orlando, NYC, and other places. They truly go the extra mile to make sure that our groups are taken of and all accommodations are met. Special requests and emergencies have always been dealt with quickly. And, personally, they are the people that I want to work with because they make the effort to connect on a personal level. I couldn’t recommend them any higher, it’s the way to go.
Your travel agencies assistance was excellent. You all went on and beyond in making sure our trip was a success. Having you address the group and informing them of the daily activities made our days run smoothly.
I usually don’t write these types of letters, but I wanted you guys to know what an incredible job you have done in planning our band trip to Orlando. YOU GUYS ROCK! our 118 students and chaperones just got back from performing in the Universal Stars Program and we had a blast thanks to your wonderful preparation and hard work.
…nothing short of fantastic.
From our initial contact through trip planning, hotel check-in, and our Disney performance, you and your staff provided stress-free and enjoyable trip for the Hanna band students and staff.
We all really feel we received a tremendous value for the low fees we were charged.
The GTC staff is top notch, when it comes to our trip planning needs! They’ve planned our in state (Texas) trips, as well as our multiple trips to Orlando. For the foreseeable future, GTC is our go-to source for traveling.
They are a comprehensive tour group that will assist you and having the best travel experience with any size group. I have used them for many years and they keep getting better and better. Their customer service is phenomenal and they are always there to help you. I would recommend group travel to anyone looking to have a great experience traveling.
The experience exceeded all of my expectations in every way, and I am known to be picky!
When our trip finally arrived, everything was thought of and prepared for, which made things seamless and our travels free of snags My parents and kids though you and Rachel were from Washington DC because you were so comfortable and knowledgeable about the area.
I love how you were there to greet us and get everything started for each event of the trip. Just amazing! You and your staff made everything so easy that it was the perfect Spring Band trip.
I just wanted to take a second to thank you and your staff for all of your hard work in planning our trip to Disney this past February. There were no details that were overlooked and everything was handled extremely well.
We have used your company for over 10 years now and your constant attention to detail, customer satisfaction, planning & communication has made all of our trips so memorable for our staff, students and chaperones.
Throughout the process of preparing for the trip, GTC was on top of every detail. Every step, from initial payments to itinerary preparation to the trip itself was made incredibly easy by the GTC reps.
Group Travel Consultants is definitely one of the best trip companies I have worked with. You were flexible with us with payments when needed, you were almost always available for a phone conversation to discuss trip details, you let me know of problems that might arise with the trip, you had multiple soluitions to problems that did arise, and you were personally available throughout the trip even late at night when the bus was having it’s problem.
GTC is a truly superior travel company for student groups. I’ve used John and the GTC team for 3 years now with my high school band. These guys are really the best. If you are going somewhere with a school group, especially Orlando or NYC, you simply can’t beat these guys for a great deal and amazing trip!
Our low-income area makes it very difficult for many families to even dream of such a trip. Our rescue came in the form of Group Travel Consultants. They worked with us to plan a trip that would meet our specific needs and be affordable for our families.
From the initial contact we had with you until the time we left Orlando for home, you were there for any questions, problems or concern that we had. I know it’s not easy to smoothly coordinate any trip for 190 people: therefore, I can truly say that your company is an excellent resource for group travelers.
This letter is to strongly endorse Group Travel and all of the services that it has to offer. I have used Group Travel for two years and the service only gets better and better.
Too often, groups travel and the photos they individually take stay on each persons’ cell phone. If you are lucky, they post a few online.
GTV is a great way to share these photos with the entire group AND get a professionally produced DVD video of the entire trip for a very small added cost. What’s more is that GTV now offers GEO-TRACKING in their app so that when you do travel, the same app each member uses to upload their photos will also allow group leaders to track the actual location of each member if their group. This feature is included in the GTV purchase and a smart safety idea. Click the logo below for more information.
