This was my second trip with Reformation Tours. Both trips were highly specialized and designed to fit my unique needs and circumstances. Ref Tours went out of their way both times to make sure the trips were a grand success. I couldn't have done it without them. Moreover, I know Frank and Rowena personally and cannot recommend them highly enough. Your group would be blessed by working with them on your next trip.

Reformation Tours put together a fast paced, yet relaxing tour of the religious heroes of our faith. We experienced a lot and everything was well organized. Great balance of plans and freedom.

This tour was planned well and enabled us to see a number of important sites in the history of the Protestant Reformation. The Accommodations and organization made this a truly pleasurable event.

Review by GreytMama7 months ago
Everything was really pretty good Here are a few suggestions though
Arrange for early check in on arrival day even if it costs a little more At the age of a lot of us on this tour we are tired upon arrival and allowing us to get in our room s few hours early would be much appreciated
For The hotel in colchester to be so far from
Harwich was nuts to be honest The ones on the ferry drove for an hour after the ferry and the next morning we all drove right back I am pretty sure there was a holiday Inn right there as that would save time on a filled day no one could enjoy the hotel and its amenities anyway (we were too tired or not any time)
I agree with the ones about the Southampton hotel Janice and I were in a handicap room which was right off the entrance Personally I did not care for the place at all Did not seem clean we also arrived too late for dinner (being diabetic means one must eat) but they did manage some soup
Our guide was fun and I enjoyed his different slant on things being that he was a transplanted Swiss!
The bus was comfortable but being that it was smaller it did not have a bathroom however they did do quite frequent bathroom breaks
Sue Allen was a highlight of the trip for me She was absolutely fantastic and I hated for the day with her to end
So hope this helps in your continued efforts with mayflower tours We will be recommending you to our friends for sure

Rowena was delightful from our first contact. She worked diligently to assist us in making the trip the way we wanted it to be as a Seminary Teaching Tour. She was quick to respond to emails and phone calls and I felt like she really heard us. She helped keep the cost where we wanted it and even made a effort for her and Frank to meet us in person when they were in the area before the trip. Frank was a good tour host and eager to please as well. He was on top of things and saw we all got to where we needed to go. They both made the work on our end very simple. I highly recommend Reformation Tours and I would travel with them again.

(1) Your historical add-on guides in different locales were excellent; however having a Swiss general tour guide was not helpful due to his lack of English history-- that is not to say anything negative about skills & abilities as a general tour guide. He was humorous, personable and he tried very hard to be positive and helpful, but he simply did not have the proper background to enhance an "historical tour of England." We came to learn more about English history! I came home knowing more Swiss trivia than English! (2) Lack of proper timing and totally confusing food choices got to be big laughs, and I know you can easily correct and adjust these schedules/problems in the future. (3) Personally I did not appreciate the fact that some guests chose to wear their name tags on their t-shirts focusing on ""BEER" or drinking in taverns. I felt this was in poor taste to represent us as a Reformation Tour, a Christian tour company! I do recognize, however, that you do not have control over tourists and apparel. It was their poor choice! I do appreciate you went out of your way to accommodate a special trip to Tavistock to the 1812 prison and church. Thank you so much, I did have a good time, especially because it was a topic so dear to my interests and personal family history.

The tour was great!. A little more walking than I expected, but always worth while. My illness towards the end of the tour put a bit of a damper on things, but your staff was more than helpful in rescheduling flights etc. My particular thanks to Tim Cave who supported me in my darkest hour.
Blessing to you all!

The Mayflower Heritage Tour by Reformation Tours was a great experience. Sites were well chosen and the schedule was quite easy, for the most part. The last day (Thursday) was a bit heavy given London’s traffic and the need to do four major events plus the evening dinner.
Juerg was a very good and delightful tour director. Local guide Sue Allen was exceptionally skilled and it was great to have her for so much of the one day.

What a wonderful well planned out trip! Our driver Werner and tour director Dorothy were fabulous! I so enjoyed following the life of Martin Luther and all the fabulous cities and sites along the way! Seeing the Neuschwanstein Castle has always been on my bucket list and it did not disappoint! So many new friends and memories to share. Thank you so very much!

We really appreciated all the attention to details for such a large group.
Since David has reviewed you as well, the only item I would mention was that the upper room in the HoffBrau (spelling?) for Octoberfest was rather marginal. I think we sat for an hour and a half before we got anything and the fact that if you wanted a Dunkel beer you had to get a HUGE one but if you ordered something else you got a smaller one/choice. I said small Dunkel and got too much. When we finally received our meal it wasn't even what was promised, noodles and no veggies!
Rest was awesome! Thanks!

I loved this trip! It was well organized and put together. Also, the trip was very affordable and a great deal! Thank you Reformation tours!
Review by Singaravaloo11 months ago
We were well prepared by you folks and it was such a blessing that Don had journeyed with you. He was a true right hand. Werner and Dorothy were great, and even entertaining. As has been suggested, an alternative to Hofbrau haus would be a good option. Enjoyed the meal but the service was really poor, to the extend that both Dorothy and Werner spoke to their staff. However, the other elements of the tour were great. Our travel companions were amiable and the history and landscapes are so captivating.

A distinction should be drawn between the administrative people at Reformation Tours and those who were directly involved on the tour (the tour guide and hosts). We were quite pleased with the process of booking the tour. It was very efficiently and professionally done. We were less pleased with the actual tour itself. The tour director had a difficult time in accommodating the needs of those in the group and on occasion was quite curt. Some room accommodations were below expectations. Also, on some occasions misinformation was provided concerning tourist questions. Perhaps the most serious criticism would be the lack of providing time for a lunch meal on the day in Salzburg in which we went for as much as 10 hours without food. While there were apologies for this there was no accommodation to correct the situation, only that we could purchase beverages from the bus driver, adding insult to injury. Several folks commented that "what if one of us was diabetic?"

Reformation Tour's Rowena and Frank were wonderful to work with - very well organized, detail oriented and helpful from beginning to end, which all contributed to an excellent experience. There was a wonderful selection of places and experiences to encounter. I enjoyed visiting places that were meaningful in the life of Martin Luther and in doing so, learned more about him, his life and his ministry. The extra locations of Berlin, Rothenburg, Oberammergau, Salzburg and Munich were a good selection worth seeing! For the most part, the breakfast buffets provided by our hotels were outstanding and a great way to start the day!
High praises to both our bus driver, Werner, and our German tour director, Dorothy. Werner had some difficult situations but his superb driving skills managed them quite well. Dorothy was very knowledgeable as she imparted various history and background information to us, plus she was proactive when needed to manage our schedule very efficiently. She was an extraordinary help to John and me on figuring out trains to take and accompanying details for our post tour travel from Munich.
Kudos to Don, who prepared us well for the journey and gave interesting tidbits and information throughout the tour. He was an excellent and valuable resource. Wouldn't have been the same without him!
Trip Plans was an incredible and very worthwhile app - full of great information! Thank you, Rowena for providing that, along with the Facebook page :)
All in all, Reformation Tours is top notch and a first class operation!
I would highly recommend them.

What a great tour. From the friendly pickup at the airport when we arrived to when we left the trip was fantastic. We were able to see so many things. Had great tour guides, from Dorothy throughout the trip to all the local guides. It was all so worry free. Thank you so much Reformation Tours for this unforgettable trip.
