We LOVE to hear from our clients! The good reviews keep coming in! Here is what just a few of our clients had to say about their travels to England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland!
For our 25th anniversary we called upon Anne Marie who went to work planning the most magical vacation truly fitting a happy 25th. We traveled from Edinburgh Scotland to Alnwick, England on to York then Thornbury for a stay in a castle and we ended in London. She took care of everything - Castles, Manor Houses and even a Bed & Breakfast! We had such a wonderful time that after only a few brief weeks back home we gave her another call. London was our choice! Anne Marie went straight to work and soon we had a second trip to the UK planned. "Swinging London" was our custom planned tour name - seven glorious nights where every detail was covered. With Oyster card in hand (travel card for train, bus and tube travel) and the London Pass we headed out into one of the world’s most vibrant cities! From the Tower of London to a cruise down the Thames, The British Museum and tea at Kensington Palace, we ate at pubs, walked through acres of beautiful parks and even had a "cuppa" in the gardens of Buckingham Palace! What a trip! We could not have asked for a more “everything was cared for” vacation. Big thanks to Anne Marie and ATP vacations for making us feel so special and planning, yet again, a wonderful vacation. We are already planning trip number three – Ireland! Ready Anne Marie?

"As we find ourselves awakening this Saturday morning, it all seems as a dream has come and gone. Did we really spend time in a castle? Did we really follow sheep down laneways, only as wide as some sidewalks, in rural areas that seemed void of people entirely? Did I have porridge with Scotch? Eat haggis? Is Guinness really that smooth? Emily and I would like to thank you for what has been a magical trip and will be our 'retirement porch rocking chair memory' to be talked about time and again in years to come. Thanks again for helping us have a wonderful time!"
~ Tom and Emily D., Florida
“The trip you planned for us was awesome! You thought of things we would never have thought to do ourselves, like staying overnight in a castle and horseback riding through the English Countryside. Truly, your services were invaluable. Thank you!"
~ Kathy G., Virginia
"The service from Across the Pond Vacations was unlike any other we’ve ever experienced. Without a doubt, I will recommend this company to friends and relatives!”
~Jackie G., California
“All I can say is a HUGE THANK YOU - I had the most amazing time. I could NEVER have taken this trip without your support, encouragement and guidance. All of your information, advice, and the way you planned everything was beyond superb. Your planning allowed me to have the trip of a lifetime."
~ Lori P., Larchmont, New York
"Our itinerary was perfect for us! Everything was wonderful! Across the Pond Vacations made everything so easy and we will definitely use them again for our next trip to the U.K!”
~ Amber H., Maryland
"You are an amazing trip organizer! Thank goodness you convinced us (gently) that we could handle driving on the left side of the road, arranged for a rental car for us and encouraged us to explore the country a bit on our own. This made us feel less like tourists and more like explorers in a country full of friendly, helpful people! You listened to our interests and arranged lovely and varied places to stay in the evening, from the elegant castle to the 4-star hotel to the lovely, garden-filled B&B's in the countryside. We would love to go back!"
~ Peter and Marilyn S., Maryland
"Everything that Across the Pond Vacations arranged went smoothly on our ‘English Football Tour.’ Their service and communication were excellent! They worked with us to craft the vacation we were looking for, followed up on all the details to make sure everything was in order and made great suggestions. They are clearly knowledgeable about what they do.”
~ Amy R. and Sue S., New York
"What a wonderful job you did planning our trip! The hotels were excellent and well-located to suit our plans. And, you were extremely helpful in advising us of time requirements, etc. Extremely professional, very satisfied, and will definitely recommend Across the Pond Vacations to friends and family.”
~Ray and Jean P. Virginia
"We both want to thank you for your very thoughtful choices of accommodations during our cycling vacation. All of them worked out beautifully and were exactly what we were seeking - a little out of the "in-town" din, but with flair, charm, and warmth. Thanks again, Anne Marie. We were very, very happy with all the work you did. (If you ever come to Oklahoma – look us up!)”
~ Shawn C. and Tom S., Oklahoma
“Our tour was really well organized. You listened to what we wanted and put it all together to make a memorable, stress-free trip. And, you even worked out a great trip through Northern Wales that we could not have done on our own. Well done! We will certainly recommend Across the Pond Vacations to our friends and family.”
~ Anthony and Sue J., Quebec, Canada
“Across the Pond Vacations was great. They worked with us to incorporate our wishes and plans with their experience and suggestions, and our trip was magnificent! Thank you for all your help in planning so everything could go smoothly.”
~ Joanie V. and Rachel T., Virginia
"We had a wonderful time and are so appreciative of the suggestions you gave us regarding things to see while we were planning. Having a mix of modern and historical experiences was wonderful. All the reservations you made for us went very, very smoothly. I would certainly not have had the time to arrange everything nearly as well, or clearly, with any meaningful idea of what I was doing, and having a knowledgeable contact for questions prior to the trip was very helpful. You have been great to work with. Thank you for helping us with our first, but certainly not our last, visit to the U.K.
~ David and Christina S., Virginia
