smarTours Traveler Testimonials


“Please pass along our utmost thanks to your employee Linda who spent many hours assisting and coordinating to help us ultimately join our tour.  Hurricane Arthur disrupted travel for us…It was a holiday weekend and Linda made herself available the whole time, even though she herself was traveling.  We especially appreciate her forbearance with on and off plans…We could not have anticipated such great “service after the sale”. We are now smarTours converts and will recommend you without reservation.  Our Magical Ireland Tour far exceeded our expectations:  We think that the accommodations, the meals, transportation and the overall itinerary were an incredible value.  The best part though was our guide.  Paul Kealy is an Irish national treasure! – the perfect tour guide. We just can’t say enough about how much we appreciate his individual help mitigating our disruption and the great way he conducted the tour.”

— Douglas and Marcia W., Tennessee

“I was inspired to let you know how absolutely FABULOUS each and every trip had been.  We brought our kids to China and then to South Africa when they were teens.  The trip to India we did as a couple.  In each case the guides were superlative, the hotels lovely, the food wonderful, the pacing perfect.  I can’t thank you enough for all the quality you provide.”

— Amy & Al G.

So many of us on the tour felt we had the best value ever for our dollar and plan to travel with smarTours again in the near future”.
