Travelsphere never let us down. Over the past 15 or so years we have travelled with them 8 or 9 times, on short breaks to Paris and Germany, and longer ones to Canada, Italy and America. Our latest was last weekend on the "Experience Riga" trip....it was wonderful, we had a terrific Tour Manager in Gerry, a knowledgeable, interesting and friendly local guide in Gita and they ensured that our trip to this fantastic city was a triumph. I want to go back there as soon as possible!

Since returning home from the Canadian Winter Wonderland tour in December, the skies have never looked greyer and England has never felt smaller. What an amazing experience to see the most beautiful part of gigantic Canada, in the middle of the whitest winter, under the bluest sky with the ultimate guide Patrick Twomey making it an even more incredible trip than it was, with his seemingly unending knowledge and passion for his home country and that awesome Canadian humour, eh! Miss you loads pal!

Left for the 16 day Complete California Tour on 7th October, 2016 and had the most fantastic holiday ever. Tour Rep Eilean Williams was so friendly and informative. Places visited were so interesting but also so varied ! We went on most of optional excursions as well and they were enjoyable.I was amazed at how good the weather was (we only had two partly drizzly days - Yosemite National Park and San Francisco); the rest of time weather was in the 80's +.The holiday was action packed ! Thinking of going to Florida with Travelsphere in 2017.
