Top Notch Honeymoon

"This trip was actually our honeymoon and it couldn't have gone any better. From beginning to end the trip was stress free, every hotel was top notch, excursions were well planned, transportation was always nice, and our entire group and tour director were excellent. We saw much more than we would have had we tried to go it alone. One of the best parts of the trip is the friendships that have been made with the other travelers. I will definitely be traveling with Go Ahead Tours again."

Cuba 2017

"Great trip. Well organized. Too much activity each day to absorb it all. Great tour director and guides. Comfortable accommodations. Did not enjoy the final resort because of the size, number of guests and the sense that it could have been anywhere in the world. (Ocean Casa del Mar). Nice compatible group of people on the tour. Overall it was an amazing trip.
Thank you!

“Thank you for traveling with us to Cuba! We are very happy to hear that you had a great trip. Our itineraries in Cuba are organized to comply with the People-to-People guidelines established by the Department of the Treasury. This means that the primary focus of the tour is education and cultural exchange. These experiences are great opportunities to interact with the Cuban people and learn about their culture. Compared to our European itineraries however, travelers may find that they have less free time, as we must structure our itinerary to comply with the requirements of the People-to-People guidelines. Thank you for sharing your feedback regarding your final hotel. We have a dedicated operational team that appreciates hearing the thoughts of our travelers when making decisions on booking hotels and other tour components. We are so glad that the group got along well and that you had an amazing trip. We hope you will join us for another tour in the future. ”

Australia and New Zealand

"First time with Go Ahead Tours. We found the hotels and buffet breakfasts were excellent. All plane connections worked perfectly. The tour pace was very good; there were plenty of activities that were covered as part of the tour price. Optional excursions were also good. The tour hit all of the major areas in both countries and tour guides provided information to better understand the countries and the sites we visited.

Nine Days; Venice, Florence, Rome

"We enjoyed our tour with Go Ahead to Venice, Florence and Rome. This was our first comprehensive experience with a tour guide and travel companions, although we have done quite a lot of independent travel. We chose Go Ahead because two friends had made the recommendations and were satisfied with the quality of the trip. We felt that the trip was good value for money with just the right amount of structured time as a group and free time. Our main guide, Shona was excellent. She is a delightful person, very entertaining and intelligent. We were very satisfied with our hotels and breakfasts they provided. The walking, although not strenuous, was exacting and for several hours at a time on certain days. There is waiting in queues for various sights which can be quite tiring. The schedule was full on and quiet personal free time was certainly appreciated. "

“Thank you for taking the plunge and joining us for your first group tour. One true mark of success is when our travelers have such a good time that they encourage their friends to travel with us. Thank you for taking their advice and joining us. As you mentioned, we work very hard to balance included activities and free time. Our travelers expect interesting educational and cultural experiences with our Tour Directors and Local Guides. In addition, our travelers have varying interests and so it is important to provide opportunity to explore on their own as well. Thank you for mentioning the amount of walking on this tour. This tour is fast paced and there are times that require long periods of walking and standing. We appreciate your feedback regarding the hotels and meals on your tour. We have a team that works hard to select properties that have a high standard of quality. Lastly, thank you for highlighting the contribution of Shona, your Tour Director. Our Tour Directors love to help our travelers make the most of their time on tour, but are also just plain lovely to travel with. ”

Down under with GoAhead

"This was our first tour with Go Ahead after an extensive search on line with other tour companies. Go Ahead with the better comparable price with the same itinerary was we figured gave us the best option. What makes tour a compelling experience in our experience are the landscape, natural history, people and friendly and knowledgeable tour Manager. We had everything on the Australia and New Zealand a three adventure which served to highlight the best of both countries without missing anything. The tour itself has a lot of physical areas to cover to give any tourist an idea of the expanse and beauty of these two places"

Great way to travel for singles

"I went on this trip in March 2017. I found it well organized, with a good variety of activities. Our group was on the larger side (33), and had a good mix of singles, couples and families with teenagers. As a single person with not much travel experience, I appreciated that everything was done for me, and all I had to do was show up! I believe that we walked more than 2 hours a day, however. The hotels were nice overall, but nothing too fancy. I found the meals good, but not amazing, with the exception of the farmhouse dinner, which was fabulous. Our tour guide Gloria was enthusiastic, passionate and very knowledgeable. I would definitely travel with Go Ahead again! "

Unforgettable

"I took the Italy and Greece tour and it is an experience I will never forget! Our tour director, Gloria was nothing short of amazing. She made the trip special and went above and beyond at every opportunity to ensure that we got an authentic feel for the places that we visited. I can't pick a favorite place or experience, they were all special in their own way. The optional excursions were definitely worth paying a bit more; the farmhouse dinner was a definite 'must'. I would definitely suggest this trip to anyone who wants to visit Italy and Greece. "

Great Adventure!

"My husband and I toured Paris and Rome. We had a most delightful time! The tour was filled with wonderful travelers and a fabulous tour guide. Our tour guide made our trip one filled with great city tours as well as suggested experiences to tackle on our own. I believe both are important to truly enjoy the beauty and the beat of any city. Accommodations were comfortable well located, and travel plans were smooth. Our guide was a great source of information and suggestions in both cities. We can't wait to travel again with Go Ahead Tours!"

Land of the Long White Cloud

"That's Aotearoa, the Maori name for spectacular, exciting, friendly New Zealand, the most recent destination of my Go Ahead tour experiences. Every tour has taken me to beautiful, historic and culturally significant places on the globe, but this tour added just plain fun to the mix. Our group went jet boating on river rapids, helicoptered to glacier landings, cheered on the Wellington rugby team and roasted marshmallows on a private beach as the sun set over the Tasman Sea. We participated in Maori games, sat in awed silence as our little boat glided under a million glowworm "stars" on the ceiling of a velvety dark cave, and picked out the Southern Cross in the night sky. Our fabulous tour guide, Erika, taught us a love song in Maori, and showed us delightful New Zealand-based videos as our bus motored along. She gave time to our driver, Alan, who told us about deer hunting and his long family history on the South Island. The food was great, featuring fast food meat pies, amazing fresh fruits and vegetables and New Zealand pavlova for dessert. The scenery was stunning. I especially enjoyed the views of glacier-covered mountains in sight of the seacoast, the golden sands of pristine beaches reached by small ferries and trails through deep, mossy temperate rainforests of silver ferns and arching tree ferns. My heartfelt thanks to New Zealand and Go Ahead for this happy trip of a lifetime! Judy Marr, Williamston, Michigan"

“Hi Judy,

Thank you so much for your kind words about Go Ahead and your time on tour. It sound as though you made great use of all of your time in New Zealand. We are so happy that you were able to make so many wonderful memories and have shared them here.

We are very glad that you were able to learn much from both your Tour Director and Coach Driver. Making connections like these are truly one of the most special aspects of traveling. We are sure that they were happy to help you connect with the islands you were visiting.

New Zealand is such an incredible place. It is full of awe inspiring landscapes and welcoming people. Thank you for choosing Go Ahead to help you explore such an amazing destination.

Excellent tour of Southern Africa

"In March, 2017 my nephew Alton and I enjoyed our Go Ahead tour of South Africa, Swaziland, and Zimbabwe. We had terrific weather, first rate hotels and excellent meals. Our tour guide was top rate. I took nearly 800 photographs!
The only drawback to a tour of southern Africa is the time it takes to get there. However, the tour itself is well worth the chore of getting there. This tour (flights included) represents excellent value.

We've enjoyed every tour.

"We've been on four Go Ahead tours. While each one was unique, they shared several features.
The tour directors are marvelous. Knowledgeable, warm, energetic, and charming; each one became a friend. The drivers too, were excellent. Their skills are nothing short of astonishing. While we were on a hike in Tuscany, our driver collected wild vegetables and made us a wonderful snack. The local guides, who really are local, add an intimacy to being in particular areas that no tour director could manage for many different places. All tour directors and local guides spoke perfect English.
The trips have a mixture of well-known, appealing tourist destinations, with less well-known but equally interesting stops.
Having said all this, the walking tours are our favorite. I haven't seen other companies offer them. To go out on a refreshing hike in the countryside gives a deeper feeling of having really seen the country up close. While invigorating, the walking tours we've been on were even fine for seniors like us.
Go Ahead has also taken us twice to "agroturismo" sites, both times in Italy. These are a highlight of any trip. To see and learn how a real agricultural enterprise functions, and then dine on their produce, (and in one case get a cooking class too) is really unforgettable. Since Go Ahead has been doing the walking tours and the agroturismo visits for some time, everyone is familiar with each other and have become pros.
