Route 66

We have just returned from our Route 66 holiday and wanted to say Thank You very much for organising everything. The holiday was perfect and we found the booklet with the itinerary for the holiday really helpful. We travelled 3000 miles in total and visited some wonderful places along the way. Detour off Route 66 to Grand Canyon and Chinle was definitely worth it. The hire car we were given was brand new which was a bonus and all the hotels were great. A fantastic holiday-we are already looking at which tour we can do next! Thanks once again!

Extended Trails West

We would like to thank you for arranging our holiday " Extended Trails West "  It was brilliant, everything worked to plan. The personalised book was a very nice touch and of course very useful, and thanks for the maps.

The car we rented a Chevy Tahoe was ideal.

We like the Best Western hotels.  Every hotel is different but they are all up to a high standard.

Denver worked well and was convenient for 16 Street

Lusk,Best Western Pioneer,  To be able to walk across to the chuck wagon in a morning and enjoy freshly made omelette was super.

We loved Hill City & Deadwood, and the highlight of our holiday was The Crazy Horse Memorial.

The Best Western Clock Tower Inn at  Billings was a big surprise, it is in the middle of town but the swimming pool with all the flowers around , was beautiful.

Best Western Sunset Motor Inn at Cody was excellent.

Canadian Maritimes

Good evening Mike,

We have now returned from the above trip and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you once again for making all the arrangements.

Everything went extremely well and smoothly, and there was a nice information pack waiting for us at our first hotel with much useful information and further maps etc. All your recommended hotels were very nice, and very convenient for the areas visited.

I also greatly appreciated your personal advice and attention to all matters relating to the trip, your involvement certainly added much value and made the whole process very simple and easy for us.

So, many thanks once again, and I will definitely be in touch again the next time we will be planning a trip to USA/Canada.

Kind regards, and best wishes to you and your team,

Tony.

Canadian Rockies and Alaska with APTouring

just a quick note to say thank you for all your help in organising our recent holiday in Canada/Alaska. Everything went very smoothly and we had a wonderful time. The APT Travelmarvel tour was very good and the cruise was both interesting and relaxing after the tour.Thanks againRegards

Will

Colorado Rocky Mountain High!

We have now returned from the above trip, and I wanted to just drop you a note of thanks for making all the arrangements.

Everything went extremely smoothly, the Alamo rental car turned out to be a brand-new Ford Kuga with only delivery mileage on the clock, and all the hotels were very good, with the Stonebridge, Snowmass, the Peaks at Telluride, and the Cheyenne at Colorado Springs being especially good. The Cheyenne were coping very well bearing in mind they were simultaneously offering accommodation to many of those unfortunately displaced by the wildfire.


But the best hotel was quite possibly the Strater at Durango, which is an experience not to be missed as it really does make one feel a part of the 'wild west'.

Grand Circle Adventure

We've just returned on Friday evening from our Grand Circle trip to the USA and would just like to say how pleased we were with our holiday.The itinerary and hotels you chose were excellent and the whole holiday passed off without any problems.This is the second time we have used your company and we are already looking forward to planning our next trip.

Many Thanks

Pacific Coast Highway self-drive tour

We simply can’t thank you enough for the most wonderful and memorable holiday we have just had this summer in America.  Our decision to visit Las Vegas and drive to the Grand Canyon, as well as Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and then several beautiful towns along the Pacific Coast Highway and finishing up in LA, was a big ask in 17 days!  However, with your knowledge of the country and excellent recommendations, you prepared for us a fabulous itinerary that meant we took in a beautiful drive down to Scottsdale in Arizona as a bonus.  And, oh my goodness, our stay at the Camelback Inn in Scottsdale will stay with us forever – I simply could not recommend this hotel highly enough for its stunning location, first class service and absolutely excellent cuisine.

Rebecca (Sept 2012)

Rosy

Just a note to say that our holiday went really well.

We had a fantastic time. The weather was perfect - too hot some days, if anything.

The only problem was that we did not see everything we wanted to in all of the cities we visited.

I do not know how you managed to get us booked into the 'Omni' hotel in Washington, but it was absolutely palatial!

Many thanks once again for all of your work.

Regards

 

Philip (Sept 2013)

Hi Rosy,

Just a line following our recent trip to USA which you helped to organise and book .....
We had a  really great time and everything went more or less like clockwork.  All the destinations and hotels worked out great.  Did lots of wildlife viewing, hiking and general sightseeing. The contrasts in the holiday between The Black Hills, Badlands, prairies, Wounded Knee etc and then the national parks of Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone and Grand Teton made for a holiday of very varying experiences. Each was very special in its own way.


Highlight of the wildlife was a grizzly bear eating an elk - viewed from about 50-60 yds away. Also saw bison, moose, elk, various other deer, wolf, marmot, prairie dogs, chipmunks, osprey, eagle, vulture.


We did 2800 miles from Denver back to Jackson Hole, so we were glad we opted to fly back from Jackson Hole to Denver - rather than doing a full circular trip. Driving did not seem stressful or too much. We were glad we opted for an SUV - which was on your advice - thanks.

Extended Trails West

Just to let you know how much we enjoyed our Extended trails west trip that you arranged for us.
Everything went according to plan.The itinerary that you advised was perfect and although we traveled 3000 miles it was easy driving.On your advice we held out against the hard sell at Alamo and drove away in a brand new Chrysler 2.4 that was three up from the class we had booked at no extra cost.

All the hotels/motels were good,some better than others especially the Ramada ones.The one at Estes gave us full complementary breakfast.

In Cody we went to the Rodeo and had breakfast with' Buffalo Bill' outside the Cody museum, one of the best museums we have ever visited.

New England in the Fall

Red leaves
New England fall leaves


Hi Mike,

Just back from our trip to Boston and New England which you helped us plan and we wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help and input into making our trip amazing.
Everything was great, all the hotels were very good, the car pick up from Boston (near the aquarium) was easy, wish getting out of Boston had been as easy. The sat nav was invaluable to us then.
The hotel highlight was the Bluenose Inn at Bar Harbor but make sure you ask for a room in the main house overlooking the bay as it gives you beautiful views.
The 'fall' was a little late this year but we did see some spectacular colours especially on the Kancamagus Highway. I'm sure they will be at their peak this week and next, but by then some of the venues will have closed for the season. As ever this is beyond your control!

Two great holidays!

I just wanted to say thank you to you all over at Just America for two fantastic holidays. We arrived back from our Boston/ NYC trip last week and had a brilliant time. As usual, everything went smoothly, it was organised so well and the hotels were lovely, especially the Loews Boston.

Our Pacific Coast Highway road trip last year was one of the best holidays I have ever had and I have such fond memories of it.

Thank you again, I will definately be in touch with regards to future holidays, I am a definate repeat customer ha ha.

Regards,

Zoe

California Coast By Train

Hi Mike

I just want to say a big thank you for the organisation of our trip to America.  The California  Coast by train trip was amazing and great experience with everything going to plan.  The hotels were lovely with staff always happy to help.   Excellent value for money.

Ann

A Taste of California

Thought we should give you an email now that we are home and just about getting over the jet lag .

Jenny and I would like to thank your Company for a super holiday (A Taste of California), all hotels/Inn were first class and the hire car was a dream to drive (automatic).

Like most holidays it goes so quickly and we could have done with a few extra days along the way, as so much to fit into 14 days.

Look forward to using your company again in the coming years ahead.

Regards

Jenny & Colin (Sept 2013)

California honeymoon

Hi Mike,

I hope you're well?
I just wanted to say thank you so much to yourself, Rosy and whomever else helped organise our honeymoon. It truly was the trip of a lifetime and went without a hitch. Each hotel was just superb but I particularly want to mention Tenaya Lodge. It is without a doubt the best hotel both my husband(!) and I have ever been to. The staff kindly gave us a complimentary bottle of champagne in our beautiful room and were incredibly helpful from beginning to end. One word of advice I have for any future clients travelling from San Francisco to Yosemite is not to use the Here App without fully consulting its intended route! It took us to the hotel via the Miami Mountain Road which I'm convinced was the inspiration for Deliverance!
Anyway, thank you all again for helping us create such a memorable honeymoon. We will definitely be returning to help with another holiday once our bank balance has recovered again!

So many thanks

Nic and Rich

Just America would like to point out it was the client's choice to use the 'Here' app., Just America provides maps and guides and does not promote any apps.

Northeast USA and Eastern Canada

this is just a quick note to say that we are safely back and that in spite of the hurricane we had a fantastic holiday. Would you please convey our thanks and gratitude to the organizers in America, the whole tour and the presentation of it was fabulous, the hotels used were great, and where the rooms were smaller and not quite so luxurious (Ottawa and New York) the location made up for it. We had a bit of a scare in Lancaster, where the river was about to flood and we just managed to get out (we heard that in Harrisburg they evacuated 150 thousand people soon after we left) but somehow we managed to beat the bad weather and by the time we got to Washington the sun came out. But we never saw any of the Amish! Apart from that it was fantastic. We shall travel with you third time if we find the right route!

Thanks again!

Hi Mike

Just got back from our trip.
Thought I'd let you know how we got on.
Everything worked fine - absolutely no hiccups! (First time I've travelled with no hold-ups, glitches whatsover!).
The bit of the itinerary you sorted was excellent.
Flights all on time (Continental a bit like a cattle truck, but that's economy for you these days).
Denver hotel was v good.
Transers to Cruise America depot worked like clockwork.
RV was very good (if very thirsty on fuel!)
The itinerary I planned with your help worked very well. Having the RV gave flexibility and saved on food as we self catered everthing.

We also had a very good 9 days at the end split between Manhattan and Virginia.

So, thanks for your advice. If you want more detailed feedback on our itinerary, RV experience etc. for future reference I'd be glad to provide it.

Tim (17 Aug 2011)

Dear Mike,

Now that we are back and the dust has settled (well the washing mountain has been done), we wanted to write to say an enormous thank you for organising our brilliant holiday in America.

It really was an amazing trip – we loved every day and had a very full time away.   All your recommendations were spot on, the hotels great and all your organisational touches extremely helpful.  We will definitely ask you to help us again if we save up enough to do a return visit.  There were lots of places in our books that we just didn’t have time to get to!  I would also definitely recommend you to any friends planning something similar.  Thank you so very much.

If you are interested in any specific detailed feedback on the various hotels we stayed in, I would be very happy to do so over a coffee.  The children go back to school tomorrow at which point I hope to have significantly more time – just give me a call!

With many thanks,

Emma and John

New England adventure

Wonderful holiday, thank you!


Old Fort Inn was lovely. Couldn't do enough for us. Great quiet room in the Carriage House in the woods. Lovely breakfast. Lovely furniture throughout the inn and large oversize art books, which was great for the designer in me. Sat on a beach with white sand up the coast. Only saw 4 other people the whole morning! Ate at Pier 77 restaurant, 77 Pier Road Cape Porpoise Harbor great lobster and ravioli


Bayview Hotel, Bar Harbor, again couldn't help enough. Ate at The Side Street Cafe Great blueberry pie and more lobster with 'mac and cheese'!


Paul

Grand Circle Adventure

We have just from our Grand Circle tour of national parks in America which we booked through your company. We had a wonderful time and the accommodation could not have been better. The information you provided was useful and reliable. We enjoyed all the tours you booked for us and everything ran like clockwork. I would not hesitate to recommend your company. Many thanks for organising a wonderful holiday for us.

American Southwest self-drive

Bryce 17
Bryce Canyon National Park


You may remember you organised a "tailor made self drive tour" of Southwest USA for myself my wife and my brother and sister-in-law, 23 September 2010.

I am writing on behalf of us all to say it was one of the greatest and best organised holidays we have ever had.  The flights, the hotels, the cars and the planning were spot on.  We had only to produce your voucher and everything happened.  No snags, no problems and no extras.

The Beverly Garland, The Hyatt and the Bellagio Hotels were excellent and the rest were perfectly adequate for a one night stay.

We will be passing on your name to friends who are considering a tour or trip to the USA.

Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Washington DC by train

Just a brief note to say that we have returned from the USA and all went extremely well. We had a great holiday.

All hotels were expecting us, we were given the rooms we requested and the hop on/off bus tickets and Amtrak train tickets worked fine.

Thank you very much for all your help in arranging this holiday.

Kind Regards,

 

James (Oct 2013)

Dear Just America,

we are back from our New England self drive and wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful holiday and everything went very smoothly. The pack from City Tours was excellent and they were really helpful with one query I had. The hotels were great and we were looked after really well everywhere. The SUV was exactly what  we needed and the service at Alamo Boston was the best we have had at Alamo.  The Fall was just fabulous and the three Shaker Villages which were one of the main reasons for going were beyond my expectations. We have been planning this holiday for 25 years once we were free of school holidays and it fulfilled all our dreams.
Our friends were very impressed with the smooth organisation so there may be more business coming your way!


Thank you again for all you help and wonderful service - we may not be back next year as first grandchild is due but the wide open spaces are still beckoning!

best wishes

Great holiday

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for organising such a fantastic holiday for us. We both said it's the best trip we've done, we packed so much in and loved every minute of it. Each of the destinations felt like a holiday on its own, and all went really smoothly. We've wanted to do a road trip for a few years but always thought it would be tricky and time consuming to organise. Just America made it all so easy for us. You were recommended to us by someone Matt works with, and we've already been recommending you to other people! Thanks again and best wishes, Claire

Claire  (June 2014)

New England

Just a quick email to say thanks for organising a great holiday.  All the times we have used Just America we have never had any problems whatsoever.

Everything ran smoothly throughout the holiday (as always)  All the hotels were great. (Loved the Back Bay hotel. The staff there were so friendly and it was central to everything) 

Harborside was a good choice as well as we were able to use the washer and drier as due to the nature of our holiday we really needed 2 wardrobes and were short of clothes. (Nearly 3 as a couple of days after we left Stowe they had 12” snow.  A record for this time of year apparently! So we would have to have bought snow gear as well.) They were very well equipped apartments and should we have wanted to self - cater we would have had no problems whatsoever.  We also had cleaning every day whilst there which we had not expected and it was to an exceptionally high standard.

Anyhow thank you once again. Very well organised as usual.

Kind regards

Washington & New Orleans

Once again thank you so very much for your organisation of our wonderful

trip to Washington - New Orleans.  The memories of this will last

forever, never have we seen anything so vibrant and spectacular, the

locals said we had hit the fall "spot on".  Accommodation was brilliant

as was last year with the exception of the Ramada at Roanoke, it left

very much to be desired and avoid at all costs if possible, other than

that everything was just brilliant.


Our thanks to you again Mike and will look forward to arranging further

adventures with you.

All good wishes to you and your team,

Margaret and Dave

Washington DC capitol building

Boston, New York, Philadelphia & Washington DC by train


just to say big thanks for our recent package to East coast USA by Amtrak, despite bits of bad weather all went well & thanks for your organizing.


The bus tours you included were useful in the main though organization & running schedule on Washington one very poor in the city.(& info in NY was at best sketchy)


A tip for your future clients in Philly where we had no bus tours included...we found Philly trolley at 2 $ / trip or 5$ all day hop on hop off useful & good value.


Once again thankyou.

Hello Mike,

We have been back now for just over a week and thought you may appreciate some feedback on our holiday.
Overall we can only say that the holiday was fabulous - you got the timing perfect with the foliage at its peak in Vermont and New Hampshire during the week we were there. We think you pitched the accommodation about right although in hindsight we would have upgraded hotels in Toronto and New York. In New York the Crowne Plaza ( Opposite the M&M advert!!) looked good

Route 66

Hi Mike
Sorry for taking so long for this testimonial, but here it is !!!!.
As you know we travelled Route 66 in June 2015 , together with side trips to Monument Valley and Vegas.
We would like to thank you for your advice which was excellent and worth listening to.
The trip was the best thing we have ever done and met all our expectations and more and well worth the effort in planning , we wish we could have spent more time than we did exploring the wonderful places we visited along the way.
We met some wonderful people, saw some brilliant sights and experienced fantastic times.
The hotels were great and mostly in good positions.
The experience was unbelievable and anyone thinking of doing Route 66 we would say go for it as it was a trip of a lifetime.
Take advice from Mike as he knows a trick or two well worth knowing.
Thanks again Mike and Just America for all your help and advice.
Cheers John and Barbara Martin

Pacific Coast Highway

Hi Rosy,

We have just returned from our Pacific Coast Highway holiday that you arranged for us and just wanted you to know that we had a fantastic time! Your bookings and schedules were spot on!
Having been presented with our itinerary shortly before our departure, we knew exactly where we should be. Our booklet cleverly contained all of the hotel vouchers that we needed, hence no need for lengthy form filling when we arrived. We were able to do all of the things we intended to do whilst we were there ( but still left things for our next trip!) safe in the knowledge hotel bookings  were firmly secured. Our hire car was ready and waiting for us when we needed it. No lengthy forms and paperwork, you had sorted all of that out for us.

You made our trip easy! We were able to enjoy stunning scenery whilst taking in some of the Californian city life too. Our hassle free drive of the Pacific coast will remain in our photo album as well as in our hearts for many years to come!

Thank you so very much to you and al of your Just America team

Very kind regards
