“The Hay Festival was a dream come true for a book lover like me. I went from one interesting author seminar to another – each one more fascinating and fun than the one before. It was so invigorating and intellectually stimulating to be around the finest writers and literature lovers in the world. The whole trip was wonderful – and discovering the countryside of Wales was a terrific added bonus.”
Kathy Pratte – Hay Festival Select Journey
“I wanted to get away from the holiday season of shopping malls and plastic Santas – the charming and authentic Christmas markets of Prague and Rothenberg were just what I was looking for. I had a great visit to Europe when it was least crowded and came home filled with the Christmas spirit!”
Richard James – Christmas Markets Cruise
“On The Map Travel took all the interests of our women’s group – food, wine, art and adventure – and combined them to create a trip to Chile that was great fun from beginning to end.”
Elizabeth Mannen – Wine, Poetry & Patagonia
“A group of my friends love to golf and went to On The Map Travel to plan our trip. It was great – they included tee times on the best courses of Ireland, fabulous little country inns as well as building in time to just relax and enjoy Ireland.”
Peggy Ryan • Ireland
“The hassle-free time with our kids – all of us having adventures together – no work on my part to put the trip together – that was worth the price of the trip alone.”
Dave Pincus • Peru & Machu Picchu
“I never thought I’d enjoy traveling in a group, but with families it’s different. Our kids were happy to be traveling with friends from school and we loved all the “adult time” that we got. When’s the next trip?”
Alisse Camazine • Ecuador & the Galapagos
An after hours visit to the Vatican? A private gelato making lesson in Florence’s most famous gelato shop? Guides who are professors and art historians? Wow! It was all fabulous and something we could never have arranged by ourselves.
The Shinkle Family • Italy
“I took my 5 & 7 year olds on the trip by myself. Everything was handled so well that I never had to worry. We all had a wonderful time.”
Meg Ross • Costa Rica
“These well-organized and efficiently conducted tours skillfully combined my academic input with local experts’ wonderful enhancement and wisdom. These tours offer a wealth of educational and cultural experiences that will last forever and that extend far beyond all of the desires and expectations of any educator.”
William B. Sawyer, Science Specialist, Forsyth School • Costa Rica
“We had a BIG group of 120 – families who wanted to celebrate our children’s graduation from high school. On The Map Travel found the perfect hotel (on the perfect beach), organized all the activities and meals – we only had to worry about having fun with our kids.”
Richard Hefler • Whitfield School Family Group
“We have gone on six trips with On The Map Travel and both were exceptional. We loved the hotel and restaurant suggestions; their unique tour guides – who were both knowledgeable and friendly – were truly memorable. Attending the private Keys Ceremony at the Tower of London was really special.”
Don Bechter • Eastern Europe & London
“All-in-all, I’d say it was the perfect honeymoon for us. We really needed to unwind after all the wedding planning for so many months – it was wonderful to leave the details to someone else. Thanks for all your help in making it the most memorable trip we’ve ever taken!
Richard Tao & Eliot Cori • Virgin Islands
“As a busy mother and attorney, time is what I lack. Luckily On The Map Travel took the time to plan a perfect trip to Ecuador & the Galápagos for me. Each day was more fun and unusual than the next. I loved my private sea kayak trip – just me, a guide and a host of amazing animals.”
Gail Renshaw • Ecuador & Galápagos
My 10th grade daughter and I had the experience of a lifetime in Costa Rica. Our group really made a difference at the school for the deaf and she earned nearly 40 hours towards her community service school requirement. Plus, we loved our relaxing time at the beach after our week of hard work!
Linda Cobet • Costa Rica World Service
“I really liked our trip to Cartago. Volunteering with the kids every morning and doing something fun and interesting (salsa lessons, trip to the volcano, Spanish lessons) every afternoon was the perfect combination of work and play.
Kate Hefler • Costa Rica World Service
