Affordable Tours Reviews

If there is one thing that keeps motivating us to do the best that we can, its all the feedback we get from you, our travelers. Over the years, we've sent travelers around the world to all sorts of destinations. As one of the biggest agencies in the nation, our suppliers have awarded us some of their most prestigious awards and we've maintained an A+ rating with the BBB since 2001. None of those things compare to the inspiration your kinds words and reviews give us. Read below on what some travelers have said about us.


I just came back from the GLOBUS POPULAR tour purchased through you. I was very happy with the service provided by you and the GLOBUS and got more than what I expected from this vacation package. I will definitely recommend you and Globus to my friends.

Dear Marilyn Minke,

I asked Abi Recio for the name of her supervisor because I wanted to let you know how wonderfully we have been treated by her over the past few weeks. My husband and I have been working with Abi on a fall trip to France with Trafalgar. We think she is one of the finest people we've ever dealt with at Affordable Tours and other companies with which we have booked travel. All of our questions were answered with accuracy and a great deal of patience (and in some cases sympathy when we discovered certain amenities which we had been expecting were not covered by Trafalgar). I never felt that I was being too much of a problem, even though I called and emailed Abi quite often. In every instance, she treated me with utmost respect and kindness. If all of your employees are as friendly, efficient, and helpful as she is, I congratulate you on your wise hiring. She is a gem! We hope to use Affordable Tours for all of our future tours, especially if we can deal with Abi. And we will be sure to refer our friends to your organization, without hesitation.

Hi David,

Just wanted to drop a line to let you know that our Japan tour was fantastic. We are looking forward to returning to Japan in the near future. All travel arrangements were done well, our tour guide Yoshi was great and had a sense of humor and took care of all our needs. The hotels were great, the food delicious and the tours just right. We had enough free time to enjoy the city on our own. I will certainly recommend Affordable Tours/General Tours to friends/family.

Dear Terri,

You booked Charles and I on the Portugal in Depth Globus tour when another tour we were scheduled for cancelled just three weeks before departure. Thank you for taking care of everything so quickly. Within a week of Charles' first telephone conversation with you on May 2, we had our itineraries and plane tickets in hand. That was just the beginning of a wonderfully organized and worthwhile tour of Portugal. We had a vivacious young tour guide named Beatriz Fernandez and a congenial and interesting group of fellow travelers. We really appreciate your recommending this tour.


Hello Lucy and Rod:

I wanted to take the time to let you both know what a wonderful sales representative you have working at - Dawn Marquardt. My dearest friend and I decided to celebrate our 40th birthdays with a bang by going on a cruise (this is my first one, her second). I was a bit skeptical about using an online vacation service that I was not familiar with. A good friend had sent me the link, but has never used your service. After speaking with Dawn, she immediately put me at ease. I had some tough questions for her about your company's credentials, but she understood. Unfortunately, you can never be too safe now-a-days with so much online fraud, but Dawn answered all of my gazillion questions by both e-mail and phone and sent me information relevant to my inquiries promptly, always courteous and very professional. I just received our ticket/information booklet for our cruise out of Baltimore. We are so excited!!! I am sure that this will be a cruise with many wonderful memories thanks to Dawn. We will send you a couple of pictures:-) With poor service and rudeness being the norm in today's businesses, it is very refreshing to be greeted and welcomed warmly and treated as if your business--regardless of the amount spent--matters. Thank you both, and a special thank you to Dawn!

I cannot tell you what a wonderful vacation we had in Egypt. The arrangements were impeccable and hassle-free. We were taken care of so well everywhere and I am sure we will use Affordable Travels many times in future.

Dear Sandra:

Thank you for your efficient, friendly and speedy almost instantaneous attention in this regards. I hope we can do business again.

My name is Gordon and I have been dealing with David Noel on an Ireland tour. I've been running businesses most of my life. The thing I taught my employees most of all was to make the Customer's journey a rewarding one; without them, I wouldn't be in business. I don't see much customer satisfaction emphasis any more. That's sad. However, I was rewarded in dealing with David Noel. Something that appears to be happening less and less. So, my e-mail to you. David dealt with me honestly and efficiently. He handled my many questions and queries expeditiously and positively. When I handed him a problem, he found the answer in a very timely basis. He was polite, never condescending and a real pleasure to deal with. I don't know the levels of Affordable Tours employees, but I would conclude by his handling of my tour, that he is one of your top performers. I hope you recognize this, as I have.

I am writing to let you know of the wonderful service I received from Kim Brown. I was trying to put a vacation together and she was accommodating, friendly, professional and a delight!! My son's birthday was Aug 15 and I was waiting to get vacation approval so I could book a trip and put the info in his birthday card! Early afternoon on the 15th I got approval and called Kim so she could check 2 trips for my final choice. She was prompt, called me and I booked the 8 days in Paris, Trafalgar, Christmas. Between phone tags and my demanding work schedule, we spoke at 4:30 PST and she faxed me the confirmation and trip schedule so I could put it in my Son's card. He was thrilled and excited and it made our day!! Thank you and I will continuer to work with your company in all my travels!

The journey went even better than missed flights, no lost luggage, no sickness, and no traveler's burnout. Each segment was a new and different adventure full of interesting people and sights. I would be remiss not to mention the good folks at for all the help with preparation and execution of my plans. I would not hesitate to recommend or use them in the future.

Ned R

You are an excellent travel associate, and I will not hesitate to use you again.

Cindy K

I want to tell you how much I have appreciated your help... immediately giving me the answers in a courteous and timely manner.


Many thanks!!! I am so delighted with the service I've received from Affordable Tours. Thanks so much for your prompt attention to my request for help. It's good to know clients are in such capable hands!

Olive P

Thank you for your hard work and assistance in making our dream vacation possible. Thank you for returning our phone calls and emails in a timely fashion and clarifying our concerns and/or questions. My husband and I anxiously await our cruise in August.

Hi Donna,

I just wanted to tell you that my companion and I had a great time on the Globus Travel Imperial Splendors tour. The Globus guide was very friendly and professional, the hotels were good, and the sites were spectacular. Our only regret is that we didn't have more vacation days to spend in Europe! Thanks again for making all the arrangements. Your plans went very smoothly.


Let me say that your Service has been beautiful. We generally take two cruises a year. I certainly will give you a shot at any future cruises

Tom Z

Many thanks for all arrangements - everything went really well! WE will most certainly recommend you and use you again in the future.

Carole D

It is gratifying to deal with a company that stands behind their service. We booked our second tour with Affordable Tours also thru John (of course), who I have found to be very knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and queries. Keep up the good work!

John M

All the arrangements made by Affordable Tours were well done and I will be contacting you again.

Judy N

I would happily recommend Affordable Tours to anyone who asks. You are a credit to the tourism industry.

Barbara B

Thank you very much for your assistance. A travel agent as friendly and as professional as you are serves as an inspiration to aspiring travelers. There should be more travel agents like you.

Melody T

I thank you very much for your attention to all the details and your efficiency in handling my tour reservation. Over the phone you answered all my questions, and helped me gain trust in Affordable Tours. That resulted in my choosing to give my business to Affordable Tours, rather than to your competition.


You just keep making it better and better! Thank you so much! It doesn't take much to make my day and you just did. So glad we are working with you.


Well, our trip was very nice and we like to thank you for making all the arrangements for our tour. Everything went very smoothly and we appreciate all your help. We will always get in touch with you when we plan our future travels.


Thank you! You're level of service exceeded my expectations. I will use you again and refer your company to others.

Jason H

Thank you so much for your help. You really moved the ball along in a way that no one else seemed to be able to and with tremendous kindness towards us.

Cheryl K

On behalf of my family I want to thank you for all the work that you put into making our cruise a success. It was the best time that we have ever shared together as a family. Since returning I have recommended to everyone I know that cruising is the way to go for a relaxing vacation. We sincerely appreciate your calming our fears and anxieties during the year of preparation and planning. We're already looking at dates for our next cruise and want it to be on a more luxurious vessel. We're talking about Alaska.


My wife Theresa and I would like to thank you all again for a wonderful Britain Sampler tour of London, England, Wales and Scotland. It was really a grand experience for us in every way. The Globus staff in particular were most helpful, courteous, very knowledgeable and professional every where we went. Our tour director, Jack Hood and driver, Paul, are the best of their kind and should be commended for the service they provide. Although we flew Virgin Air here in the States, it was our first time flying with Virgin Atlantic and we are most thankful for their service as well. We look forward to traveling with you all again.
