Having never used this company before I wasn’t sure what to expect. This was a big trip for us, and my daughter and son in law so I hoped I had chosen the right company to book with. After reading other reviews we decided to go with Tripmasters and were so happy that we did. The website is user friendly and the trip updates were helpful. What really blew us away was the personalized app they provided with all your itinerary information. We definitely will use Tripmasters again and will recommend them to others! Two thumbs up

TripMasters is shady at best. We recently booked through them and paid in full at the time of booking. We needed to make some changes to our itinerary and contacted them to cancel a hotel well within their stated timeframe resulting in a refund. The representative stated it would be applied towards our balance due. We told them we had paid in full at which time they stated the hotel did not accommodate the number of people their website had stated so "they" had paid the difference. Yet they were trying to recoup that money from us because we were unable to print the vouchers needed for our travel! In regards to the refund owed, it's been 16 business days and still no refund. They refuse to provide confirmation numbers regarding your contact with them beyond your booking number.

Consider this company for your transportation needs only as those items are typically non-refundable anyway. Hotels are more flexible with your booking when you book on your own rather than through this company.

I highly recommend Tripmasters after completing a 15-day European vacation with my family. We traveled to 4 countries and 6 cities and all of the arrangements made through Tripmasters went smoothly. Our reservation included international flights, 6 different hotels, multiple train trips and one flight between Germany and Italy and everything was hassle free. I found their website easy to navigate and I liked the ability to add cities to my itinerary and adjust the number of nights spent in each city. One of our train trips required hard-copy tickets and we received a FedEx package 10 days prior to our trip with the required tickets. I also appreciated the Tripmasters App, which provided great information and push notifications; though be advised that they only allow you access to the app 7 days prior to your trip. I used Tripmasters following the recommendation of a friend and I am now telling all my friends about them.

We just got back from our Trip to Italy which included Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan. I loved booking with Tripmasters. It offered so many Hotels and tours to choose from. I loved the app and while traveling utilized it to chat w/ tripmasters. They replied instantly and any questions and concerns I had were taken care of immediately. I would highly recommend Tripmasters. I have already told several people about how effortless it was to book online. My only issue was in the limited 8 hour window to save the trip. I would have liked to work on it over the course of several days and keep going back and adding to it. I would guess it has something to do with not being able to save hotel choices for a long period of time. At any rate, it was a 5 star experience!

I can not say enough about how incredible our Trip was. I took my daughter for her College Graduation and 21st birthday. It was a Trip of a Lifetime. The price was phenomenal and the Hotel selection was done by Tripmaster all in perfect locations within walking distance to main attractions. The services contracted like Hotel/ Airport transfers were all reliable . My daughter snd I were Vegetarian and a few days before we flew i called customer service yo let them know. They said no problem they would let the airline know. I was a tad skeptical but dure enough the airline had the special meal order. We did Dublin, England, Rome and Paris. I have been recommending to all my Family snd Friends.

After considering for quite some time whether or not to us Tripmasters I decided to take the chance and I'm glad I did. Booked a 14 day trip to Italy (Venice, Florence, Cinque Terre, Rome, and Pompeii). I never had a problem with my flights, hotels, trains, or tour bookings. When my the airline changed one of my flights, Tripmasters notified me right away and informed me of my options, if the change didn't work for me. I will definitely use them for my next vacation. Thank you Tripmasters!

Stride Review

Tripmasters began in 1984 as a humble family business specializing in vacations to Peru. Since then, they’ve expanded to destinations all around the world, offering self-guided and tailor made trips.

What Makes Tripmasters Stand Out?

  • Fully customizable multi-destination itineraries
  • Create your own itinerary (or follow their suggested itineraries)
  • Flights included

You get to select however many cities you’d like, your mode of transportation, the number of days spent in each city, budget, car rental, activities, and hotel. You’ll even find discounted tours through their weekly deals, with departures from the US and Canada.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Tripmasters?

Those who...

  • Know exactly where they want to go for vacation
  • Would rather only travel with their group
  • Don’t need a tour guide

Tripmasters caters to everyone from the budget-conscious and luxurious traveler. You’re able to have full control over what you want to do, and decide what parts of the trip are worth spending more or less on. Travelers in the 18-35 age range will enjoy their services the most. Their activity options range widely from wine tasting and atving, to temple tours and spiritual ceremonies.

Top Destinations

Tripmasters offers trips to Europe, North and South America, Asia, Pacific Islands, and the Middle East. They cover an extensive list of countries from A to Z, and mostly focus on popular tourist cities.

If you’ve been dreaming about a multi-country European vacation that doesn’t break the bank, have a look at Tripmasters for a wide range of cheap European vacations. Popular budget destinations in Europe that Tripmasters visits include:

  • Paris and Prague
  • Mykonos, Santorini, and Athens
  • Lisbon and Porto

Tripmasters Stride Take

Tripmasters Travel Style

They’re willing to work with whatever your interests, budgets, and dream destinations are. Whether you’re interested in building a party tour around Europe, experiencing South America’s Machu Picchu, or relaxing on your honeymoon in Hawaii, they’ll take care of it.

Tripmasters Stride Take

They offer a wide variety of hotels and apartment rentals for you to pick from. Accommodations range from 3 to 5 stars depending on how much you’d like to spend. You’ll stay in places that are well-located and usually in the heart of the city. There's an expansive list of recommended activities and itineraries for you to follow if you’re unsure of what to do. 

On the other hand, if you prefer having all your activities and day-to-day plans organized by someone else, Tripmasters might not be the right tour company for you. 

Tripmasters Stride Take

Steps to booking a tour with Tripmasters:

  1. Choose all of your destinations and decide how much time you want to spend in each place.

  2. Choose from your flight options that differ in time and prices

  3. Pick your hotels, activities, transportation, car rentals, and rail passes

It should be noted that their initial tour prices include the flight, hotel, and the occasional ferry ride at an estimated price. Prices may fluctuate based on factors like your departure city, hotel availability, and number of activities you’d like to do.

Why Choose a Tour With Tripmasters?

Book a tour with Tripmasters if you’re looking for:

  • Fully customizable trips
  • Competitive prices
  • A site that does it all (flights, hotels, itinerary, transportation, etc.)

On top of that, you can speak with them via phone or chat online 24/7. Know that they also give back by investing in children’s education in underprivileged countries.

Once you book however, the plans are set in stone and you can’t change your options. You may want to look elsewhere if these are important to you:

  • Flexibility to change plans
  • Flight upgrades
