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


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.

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


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

 


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.

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.


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.

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!


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

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
