Excellent job Caravan!”

Ms. A.Z., Westminster, Maryland

“Don’t be hesitant about booking a vacation with Caravan. They are far better at what they do than much of the competition out there and our experience was a very pleasant one.

We will definitely use Caravan in the future.”

Mr. & Mrs. L.B., Jacksonville, Florida

Mr. & Mrs. J.H., White River Junction, Vermont

“We cannot say enough good things about our tour director. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, very organized, always pleasant and could not do enough to make our trip very enjoyable.

Mr. & Mrs. W.R., Rockville, Connecticut

“Our tour director was one of the best I’ve ever met. I have traveled on other trips and never encountered such a good tour director. He was personable, intelligent and really excited about the beauty of Yosemite! We’ve never had a tour director before who tried so hard to get to know all the tour members. He did his job extremely well. The meals were great! Food was delicious and plentiful at breakfasts and dinners. We saw so much! Did so much! Appreciated so much beauty! This was our third trip with Caravan and I must say you do a fantastic job. One of the best tour companies we have encountered. So much enjoyment for your money!”

“You’ve done a great job at building relationships at the hotels as it is obvious that Caravan guests receive excellent services. The sightseeing activities were fabulous. You scheduled just enough activity and combined it with free time.

My favorite sights were San Francisco, GG Bridge and Sonoma, Yosemite and Carmel. LA sights were breathtaking.”

Mr. and Mrs. P. M., Temple Terrace, Florida

“Caravan Tours was unknown to me until 2006. You sure know how to put a trip together. We had a great time! It was our first tour. We took an Alaskan cruise two years ago, but had never done a trip like this one. It was so easy. We didn’t have to worry about traffic and finding a place to stay, etc. I thought it was a terrific value for everything we got to do.”

Mr. and Mrs., T. B., Holland, Ohio

“Caravan is an excellent tour operator. Very professional. We will return to use its services.”

Mr. and Mrs. M. S., Sidney, Ohio

“I feel Caravan did a great job with the money we paid in securing these types of hotels. Makes me feel that myself and my clients certainly got their “bang for the buck.” Don’t know how you did it. I tried pricing this whole tip myself. Couldn’t come close to your price. Keep up the good work!”

Mr. and Mrs. J. C, Ridley Park, Pennsylvania

“Caravan - just keep doing what you are doing!”

Mr. S. W., Yorkshire, England

“Wonderful hotels. Clean, everything was at my fingertips. I saw so much more than I ever expected to see. Our weather was beautiful every day. The rest and photo stops were wonderful.

I would definitely take another trip with Caravan. I will tell my family and friends what a delightful trip it was for all.”

“All hotels were excellent, clean, accessible, very nicely furnished, and the services provided were more than adequate. Your Caravan tour director was more than a tour director.

Both your tour director and driver went out of their way to make our trip most memorable, they are to be highly commended.”
