What Customers Say
Just a quick few words of praise for our driver-guides during our inland trips through GTS. Martin and his terrible, awful, really bloody awful jokes had students' attention the whole way out of London (not an easy feat) as he guided us past Trafalgar Square and out through Brixton. When we arrived at Charleston Farm and later at Monk's House in Rodmell, he somehow backed that huge coach out of lanes that proved too narrow only after you got into them. Indeed, one was marked "No Coaches" but only from the opposite direction. Even the guide at Monk's House was impressed by the way Martin got out of that spot. And cheers too for Tony, whose secret (and free) way to get close to Stonehenge (and to observe the tourists walking numbly around it with their headsets) thrilled our group. He was a fantastic guide at Avebury, too, taking time to talk to small groups of students during the free walk around the village. These guys added a lot to our experiences and were experts on the road, so thanks to both of them and to you for arranging this crew.

We have worked with many tour groups over the years, but without a doubt, the group at GTS travel have been the most professional, most organized, and most dependable group we have ever worked with. Whether arranging airport transfers or planning overnight excursions, I would recommend GTS tours for the most professional services with stress free planning.
Michael—Midwestern State University (Texas) - 2016
I have been making private group bookings with GTS tours for a number of years and have been thoroughly impressed with the service and quality of the tours. The operations team are personable, reliable and a pleasure to work with. I always received good feedback from the tours and it is so reassuring to know that my groups are in safe hands!
Assistant Director of Student Life, FIE Foundation for International Education - 2016
I have been working with GTi travel, GTS tours for over 15 years and I have always been very impressed with their service. They have a thorough understanding of the special requirements of language school groups and are always extremely flexible, personable and professional.

Principal & Head of Operations - Chartam Education & TSA English - 2016
Using GTS tours to book our attractions really takes away the stress of organising bookings. The system is easy to use and allows me to book 100s of attractions at the best rates, times and with convenient payment terms. Having a main contact is also helpful, intead of dealing with 5 different staff members per attraction you can talk to one person, who can help rearrange, cancel or amend bookings with ease.
Churchill House, 2015
We've worked with GTS tours for a few years now and they have always provided us with a professional and efficient service. Recently we worked with them to make our working relationship stronger using an online portal for bookings, GTS tours listened and provided us with an even better service than before, making the attraction booking process smooth and hassle-free. The GTS tours team team have always worked hard to help us in every situation. For example, last year a group of our students were stuck in traffic and were going to be late for their entry into an attraction. GTS helped our staff by directly contacting the attraction to make sure there were no problems on their arrival. We have over 200 bookings to make every year and GTS are an invaluable resource, helping us with the majority of those.

I'd just like to say thank you to you for all your kind help over the last 2 months.... Our excursions wouldn't have been as successful as they were without your help!... I look forward to working with you again next year!
Discovery Summer, August 2014
We have used GTS Tours for some years to provide extended tours for our clients, groups of foreign students coming to the UK for short breaks to improve their English and see the sights. They have never once let us down, and we have always been impressed with their professionalism and ability to provide a quality service at a price that doesn't break the bank. We would wholeheartedly recommend them for your personal and corporate use.
Concorde International Ltd, February 2014
Our group have had a wonderful time travelling around the Stonehenge, Bath, Wales, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Stratford Upon Avon with all your magnificent arrangements. You have arranged all details for us with great care and thoughtfulness. As a group organiser and leader from Thailand, I have so much pleasure in working and communicating with you, as you are immaculate with your work, very attentive to our group's request and also very friendly. We've been very much impressed and we'd like to thank you so much for all the work you've done for us and all the help you've given us. We'll certainly be in touch with you again for our next trip!
Aim-Orn, Thailand, On behalf of UK Tour 2013 Thai Group, May 2013
From the moment I met Jimmy in New York at the Visit Britain event, I knew that GTS would be a perfect fit for Cultural Tour Consultants and our group from Connecticut. He gave me terrific advice about what to expect in April in London during the busy school break week. Emily could not have been more flexible and responsive to our needs.
The tour was a hybrid of our arrangements and those of GTI/GTS, but there never seemed to be a moment of confusion. The group loved their escort Rob, who went over and above the call of duty and seemed to really care about the students. All in all, a great experience.
Cathy Skinner, CULTURAL TOUR CONSULTANTS, April 2013
The trip to Stonehenge, Windsor and Oxford was great. Thanks a lot for your help. We're looking forward to use your service again in October or May every year.
Achareeya, Strisuksa School, Roiet, Thailand, April 2013
Dear Jimmy and Emily
Hope everything is fine. This email is to tell you thank you very much for your good service for our school to Scotland. They really were very happy. We appreciate this good result as this school was particularly demanding and we were a bit nervous. Thank you again
Jimmy: don’t forget to send us some proposals that you think we can offer to schools. We are ready to start offering is beside our other group programs
Regards, Cordial Saludo,

I wanted to thank you again for organising the visits for our IBBY Congress in August – although there were not as many delegates booking them as we had hoped, those that did go really enjoyed themselves.
Kathy Lemaire OBE, Co Director, Crossing Boundaries, IBBY 2012 World Congress, August 2012
Dear GTS Tours,
Thank you for all your hard work and fantastic service over the past few years. The many group tours we have arranged with you have always been excellent, with knowledgeable friendly guides willing to help our students throughout, and great accommodation right in the centre of the cities visited. Your office staff are always willing to help with any request and we have utilised your excellent entrance ticket rates for the past two summers enabling us to make great savings, and offer a more exciting summer programme.For any enquiry about Group European and UK Travel, individual excursions, tourist visits, or even when we are stuck for a good guide, you are always our first port of call!! Thank you very much for your help and we look forward to continuing working with you in the future!! Well Done GTS!!!
John Benfield, Social Manager, Churchill House School of English, Ramsgate, June 2011
'Everything went great. And considering that many Londoners treated the snow as a natural disaster, I really appreciated you guys getting the job done. Of course, as usual, Rob took care of us, and the students had good things to say about him. I will contact you when making plans for next year’s trip.
L.O'Connor, Fontys University Holland, London & Oxford February 2010
Just wanted to let you know that we all had a wonderful time on the Glastonbury trip and my students enjoyed David very much. I am passing along your details to my boss, who happened to join us on the trip, as we quite often plan private tours for the students.Thank you for all your help.
Canden Schwantes, IES Abroad, Glastonbury Day Trip, October 2009
This weekend was absolutely FANTASTIC! Paul was wonderful, the students
behaved and had a ton of fun and I had an excellent weekend.
Thank you for all your help. Seriously, we had a great time.
Catie, Florida State University, Amsterdam & Bruges, September 2009
I just want to say thanks for arranging this booking our tour to Bath, Stonehenge and the Cotswolds. We really did enjoy our 1 day tour. Andrew the tour guide was fantastic/excellent. He has so so much knowledge and we really enjoyed his talk and the tour he has given us.. The driver was equally fantastic and his driving was good. Thanks so much for giving us such an enjoyable tour. In future now I know who I should go to for London tours.
Christine Kok, Private Group, August 2009
'Hi Jimmy, just a quick e-mail to let you know on our weekend everything was perfect, Andrew (guide) was amazing and Paul (coach driver) was fantastic, the students and myself really enjoyed the tour and had a great time.Thanks again Jimmy, top class!
S.Semark, Canterbury Christ Church University, Oxford, Cotswolds, Bath & Stonehenge March 2009
'I want to personally thank you and the entire staff at GTS Tours for a memorable trip. I have to say the only word that describes our feeling was FANTASTIC! Andrew (Paris guide) is a very knowledgable guide who immediatly warmed to us and assisted me when we had some one lose their return ticket. Rob (UK guide), as always, is hilarious with his jokes and history mix that kept us laughing and educated all at once. I want to personally thank him to sticking around when we 'lost' 2 members of our group in Oxford Circus! They made it back thankfully! I cannot forget to mention the food, Woods Restaurant (in Bath)was a raving success. There were two professional Chefs in the group who (along with everyone else) applauded the Woods Chefs. That was a meal that will not be forgotten.Thank you for the quality of the hotels you picked and the changes in itinerary to suit us.
Again Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.

IM, Guisborough Rugby Club U17's tour manager, cardiff rugby tour 2008
Just wanted to thank you for arranging the coach and guide for us on Saturday! It all went very well...the coach was super, the driver was fine and the guide Rob was extremely good too! He was very well-informed and made the tour very interesting for both adults and kids alike! He got on well with the students and we would definitely not hesitate in recommending both your company and this guide to anyone planning a trip to London!
Best wishes from Maureen and Ann

“Greene’s Travel Services (GTS Tours) has been nothing short of spectacular in its customer service, reliability, and dependableness. From my experience, GTS tours has exceeded our most demanding expectations and I would not hesitate in giving that company our highest level of approval. Our AP Euros trip to Florence, Paris and London was a huge success, and the Medley to Prague, Vienna, Venice, Florence, Rome and Sorrento was a once in a lifetime experience for all of our group. Looking forward to more tours in 2008!”
Jamie Devries, Global Destination, California, USA (July 2007)
As you already know we will be having our first group of 2008 that will be confirmed by 50 students and five chaperones from a Colombian school who will be taking the European tour between April 6th and April 13th 2008. We want to thank you for all the care and great service that you have provided to our former groups. We trust you a hundred percent and this is why we expect that this present group also enjoys the superb Program that you have always prepared for our Colombian groups!
With all our appreciation,
Hugo Alberto Restrepo, OPTIMA-INTERNATIONAL, Colombia (December 2007)
