Customer Testimonials

“This was just an amazing experience. I’ve always been such a planner when I travel, but now that I’ve gotten out of my comfort zone and know that I cannot only succeed but really flourish, I feel like I can take on anything life throws my way. I can’t wait for my next Magical Mystery Tour!”

“We were impressed with the professionalism at the attention to detail by everyone at MMT, and most especially our travel planner, Katie. The travel document was well organized, had all the travel information we needed, and was personalized for our travel preferences. We happily recommend MMT to anyone and everyone—it’s nice to do business with a company like Magical Mystery Tours that delivers on all their promises, provides personal service, and goes above and beyond to satisfy their clients!”

“Our trip was obviously booked with care. New Orleans was a wonderful choice, flights were timed to make the most of the partial days, and the hotel location was perfect. Would definitely do again!”

“It is our second time using Magical Mystery Tours, and it is without hesitation that we would use it again. The first time was as a couple and the most recent trip was as a family. Six of us as a matter of fact. It’s one thing to manage and plan for two, but to plan for six people who are coming in from all parts of the country, now that is a challenge. Katie managed that challenge seamlessly. She is so professional, she is prompt in keeping you updated, and her assessment of our families’ anticipated trip was exceptional. She provides a platinum service and I recommend her anytime.”

“We had a FANTASTIC time in Santa Barbara. Can’t think of a better way to have spent my 40th. Well done! I’m your newest, biggest fan!”

“Katie was so patient with my questions and made me feel very comfortable and assured that logistical details of our trip will be taken care of. She went above and beyond our expectations. I can’t wait to do it again. I have been on many vacations, both planned for me (by my parents when I was younger) and those planned by me. By far, this is the first time I felt I truly lived in the moment on vacation. You guys are awesome.”

“Banff was already on our bucket list, but we realized as soon as we arrived that it should have been higher. We loved it! The restaurant guide in the travel document was the best part, especially the first night when we were tired, hungry, and without much inclination to research. It was great to have a perfect-for-us spot at our fingertips, and the meal really set the tone for the trip. We wholeheartedly recommend Magical Mystery Tours!”

“Katie provided impeccable customer service from beginning to end! Toronto would have never even entered my mind but was a perfect choice, and the hotel was IMPECCABLE. It was a super fun adventure, and Katie did a magnificent job planning my long weekend getaway!”

“The element of surprise was awesome, and not having to plan anything was icing on the cake! The purpose of our trip was to celebrate my birthday and to PARTY, PARTY, PARTY! Mission accomplished! We had such a good time and were able to pack lots of fun into a short period of time (3 nights). Our flight times/connections, transportation, and hotel accommodations were awesome. The overall experience is one that I’ll never forget. It’s a definite must-do and must do again! Thanks MMT!”

“Katie took such good care of me! I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that was so obvious in the planning of my trip. The experience was just amazing! Katie crossed every T and dotted every I so there was no stress or planning on my part other than deciding what I wanted to see first when I got to Taiwan. Thank you for planning such an amazing trip for me!”

“We will be working with you again, hopefully soon! The travel document truly made going to a mystery destination very easy. Lots of information about what there was to do. Many members of our family are interested to try this after seeing how great of a time we had.”

“Katie did a great job explaining the process and answering our questions. The travel document provided was extremely helpful and comprehensive; it was really handy having hotel info, hotel directions, dining and activities options in one place. We loved the location—it was exactly where we wanted to go, we just didn’t know it!”

“The trip was fantastic, the booklet provided was extremely helpful, and our overall trip was one-of-a-kind. Thank you!”

“We loved our vacation. We wouldn’t have chosen our destination, but it ended up being perfect. We gave Katie quite a challenge to meet our varying demands and she surpassed our expectations. We will definitely use your services in the future.”

“This was easily the best vacation we both have had. Katie was amazing—always helpful and asked great questions. The travel document was extremely easy to read and very helpful, especially when in another country with a different language. Loved the resort and everything about it. We will be calling again!”

“This vacation was a great experience and everyone I told about it wanted to try it as well!”

“We loved the whole experience. The suggestions in the packet were great, and the day tour booked for us was perfect for the type of activities we like. It was great that Katie was still in contact with us even when our return flight got canceled. We had a great time and would do it again!”

“We’ve been wanting to go to San Antonio for over 10 years. The experience was fun, fun, and more fun. We’ll be talking about this vacation for years to come!”

“Katie is a great travel consultant, very prompt in responding to questions. I loved the travel document, which offered a wide variety of suggested things to do. I’m always satisfied when I book with MMT!”

“The location was excellent! Katie, my travel consultant, was AWESOME and exceeded my expectations. I’m already thinking about my next solo adventure with Magical Mystery Tours!”

“We had an AMAZING time!! Everything was so well planned out for us! The hotel was extraordinary, and the suggestions for all the tours were so helpful for us when deciding where to go! We will definitely be booking another trip in the near future!”

“We absolutely loved our time in California—what a memorable trip! Mystery travel was great. I’m a project manager and it allowed me to take a break from researching, budgeting, decision making, and planning, to make sure that we would have a perfect trip. Giving up control allowed for adventure and discovery. Our days prior to vacation weren’t spent googling and trying to find/book/plan the very best places to stay and things to do; we just took it day-by-day. Further, we ended up in a location we likely never would have considered—and absolutely loved it. It was a great way to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary. So thank you, Katie!”

“Thank you so much for helping us organize this trip. We had such a great time, and Lisbon really blew us away. The information packet that you sent through was invaluable, and we really felt like you took on board everything we answered in our survey. We will be sure to recommend your service to others!”

“Where to begin…while I know it’s your job, we really must thank and commend you for creating such a memorable, MAGICAL experience for us to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We could not have planned it better ourselves!! All of the meals and activities you planned for us were perfect. The Grand Hotel Central was in an ideal location for us to explore the area on foot; the room was contemporary, the rooftop views were amazing, the staff was lovely and kind, and the breakfast which was included was absolutely spectacular. The addition of Penedés to our itinerary was brilliant. As for the Mastinell, OMG!!!! The property itself is breathtaking and our suite blew our minds. It was absolutely stunning. I feel I may be being a bit effusive in this message, but seriously this trip exceeded our every expectation. We can’t thank you enough for the time and care you took to organize this extraordinary vacation. What a wonderful way to kick off 2020 and our next decade of marriage!!”

“You have no idea how excited we were to see Singapore this morning! It wasn’t on any of our radar, but it was amazing. We all had a fabulous time. Singapore was safe, clean, and friendly – a perfect location for our girls trip! Great job and thank you for an amazing 50th birthday!”

“The trip was more than we could have hoped for! It had EVERYTHING we wanted—a local flavor, easy travel around the island, and a perfect balance between adventure and relaxation. It was a little hard to come home! We would do it again in a heartbeat.”

“We had an absolutely wonderful trip! You read our survey and planned the trip absolutely perfect for the two of us. Everything went flawlessly, from the plane to the rental car to all the prebooked activities. It was fun trying new places to eat and seeing the different atmospheres of each place. We also took many short road trips to see the surrounding areas. The book you put together was awesome and so helpful. Everything we needed was right there. We would recommend Magical Mystery Tours to anyone wanting to try something new and possibly out of their normal go-to places to travel.”

“You did such an awesome job with our vacation – it was, yet again, exactly what we needed to rest and recharge. Even the smallest details, like shops we might want to visit or recommending that reservations be made for certain restaurants, were spot-on. The accommodations were beautiful and absolutely perfect – totally luxury, and complete social distancing. I just can’t say enough good things about the vacation – it was so needed, and so perfect!”

“We had so much fun! It was literally the trip of a lifetime and our only complaint was that we couldn’t stay another five days. The three things that you planned for us were all perfect as well. We told everybody that we had a chance to about our mystery honeymoon, the process, and the unbelievably amazing result! Before we left, we had already started trying to plan our next trip out there! Thank you so much for taking all of our likes and dislikes into account and coming up with the most perfect honeymoon we could’ve possibly asked for or imagined.”

“What a fantastic vacation! We loved Seattle! It was the perfect spot for us to experience new things, have fun adventures, eat amazing food, and just simply spend much-needed time as a family! Thanks for all you did to make this trip a memorable one that we will cherish for a lifetime!”

“Copenhagen was amazing. You truly hit the nail on the head, this trip had all the things we wanted! Walkable, history, and great food! We LOVED the hotel you picked. We felt like we were walking into a postcard every time we returned for the evening. The personal touches in the travel packet made us feel so special, and the restaurants and activities you suggested all exceeded our expectations. We absolutely cannot thank you enough.”

“You knocked it out of the park again. Thanks for all you do to create memories for me and my family. This was incredible!” (Kerri) and “We could not have had a better time, and I cannot thank you enough for assisting on our wonderful trip. It was magical and by far my most memorable vacation yet.” (Claire)

“Our Magical Mystery Tour was fantastic! We can’t stop telling people about it. We feel like you read our Q&A and sent us to the most on-the-nose excursion imaginable! We loved the food reservations and recommendations. The hikes at Lands End and John Muir were incredible. The Academy of the Sciences was right up our alley. We couldn’t be happier! Thanks for putting together a great experience for us.”

“We had a beautiful trip! I had always wanted to return to Charleston with Fabian, so this was perfect. Although we unintentionally planned the trip around Valentine’s Day, it was a truly romantic getaway. The hotel was charming and in a great location with shopping, delicious restaurants, and the historic city within blocks. We signed up for a food and history tour and spent the rest of the trip exploring the city, indulging in food, drink and culture; we couldn’t have asked for more. We’ve been lucky enough to travel the world, but the fried oysters, raw oysters, cheesy grits…I can go on…will hold a place on my all-time best foods lists! This trip really checked all of our boxes, even down to sitting next to each other on each flight and having the window seat. We really appreciate your quick responses to all of our emails and your hard work creating this trip for us!!”

“I’m usually the kind of person that plans trips down to the hours, so literally not having the ability to do that was amazing, and made the trip that much more relaxing because I wasn’t sitting there thinking about the next thing we should do. I can honestly say that’s one of the first times I’ve been able to just enjoy the moment without obsessing about the future. All in all 100% great experience and I think we’re going to try to make this an annual thing. We’re both very busy with school/residency, so having 3 days away where we don’t have to plan anything at all and can just enjoy each other is absolutely priceless.”

“The Canopy was a great hotel and perfectly situated in the city for everything we wanted to do. Both of the tours you planned were absolutely perfect, and the two restaurants you booked for us were delicious. You killed it once again and continue to remind me why I love doing these trips!”

“Thank you SO much for planning an amazing trip! Asheville was not a location that we would have picked for ourselves, but it more than exceeded our expectations! It checked all the boxes that we requested for our mystery trip. We loved the city, its culture, and all the sights! All of the accommodations were fantastic and very well planned. We were so excited to share our vacation with our families and friends! I know we will definitely be requesting you to plan another mystery trip in the near future!”

“This was worth every single day I waited to book it! I had the absolute time of my life. From the get-go, I felt like this trip was planned by someone who knew me. Chicago was number 2 on my list of ‘must go’ places and I’m so excited this process took me to one of the places on that list! I basically had one meal and one event planned for me each day, which was absolutely perfect! It gave me a nice structure to my day, but left plenty of time for me to explore the city on my own. I would do this again in a heartbeat! I have not stopped smiling since I opened my envelope!”

“We want to thank you so very much. Our trip was AMAZING! Absolutely everything we were hoping it would be. I can’t remember a trip we’ve ever taken that was so stress-free. We were able to relax and just have a great time. No worrying about itineraries and plans. We would definitely consider doing it again. So. Much. Fun. Thank you for the fabulous trip!”

“We had a great time exploring Seattle and surrounding areas. We loved the museums, the food, the time on the water, the gorgeous scenery, and the most calm, beautiful beach. It was a good surprise, and somewhere we might not have chosen on our own, but are so glad you chose for us. Thank you again for putting so much thought and effort into our special trip. The personalized travel book was awesome. We have recommended your service to many friends.”

“We had a wonderful time. Lots to eat, fun things to do, and such a beautiful city. We will be recommending this to all our friends. It was so organized and well done. Thank you! Not only was the anticipation fun for us, but for several family and friends — it made it SO fun!”

“We just wanted to thank you immensely for the absolutely amazing trip to Curaçao!!! It was better than ANYTHING we could have planned. I loved seeing the look on people’s faces when we told them about our travel plans! The best part was not having to plan it. We will absolutely be using Magical Mystery Tours again!!!”

“I can’t tell you enough how wonderful it was to be able to have this experience. It was so great the way this sort of childlike enthusiasm filled us both. When we saw where you were sending us, we were so excited and giddy for the whole trip out. The hotel was great and the staff was wonderful. Our guide for the architectural tour was a walking encyclopedia and she basically guided us for 4 hours straight, it was unreal. All your food recommendations were spot-on. The best part of the trip was not always looking at our phones for things to do or places to eat–we followed your recommendations and they were all unique and great. We both agree it was the best trip we’ve taken in a long time. I’ve told everyone I’ve spoken with since returning and they have all taken your contact info down. Thanks again, Katie, and you’ll be hearing from me again!”

“We had the best time in Madrid! It was such a perfect match for what we both wanted. Even though Spain has been on our bucket list of places to visit, we never took the initiative to plan. So what a delightful surprise when we opened the envelope at the airport! Hotel was perfect! It was such a cute boutique hotel in a central location with all the amenities Americans look for. I liked the excursions you picked out for us, and we did several tours per your recommendations. Katie, we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and you did an excellent job picking our destination. We certainly will book again in the future and will recommend to our friends. Thanks for always answering our questions promptly and following up. The mystery element certainly added to our excitement!”

“My trip was fantastic! The hotel was WONDERFUL. Top notch. I loved the location, amenities, the service was fantastic, breakfast was awesome. BAHR was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time, period! The food tour was a super way to get oriented to the city and history, and they did a great job. Overall, I saw, ate, walked, met a number of nice travelers on the group outings, and reallyyyyy enjoyed the trip and traveling solo! It was freeing in a way I really enjoyed! Your suggestions were spot-on, as was the destination. THANK YOU! I can definitely see another solo trip in my future, perhaps one a year!”

“Thank you SO much for the thoughtful planning. I had a fantastic time! Truly, you planned a trip that would have stressed me out to think about and research, and I loved that the destination was only the first surprise of many! Seriously, this was an excellent experience. I think I’ve got a few takers to join me next time.” 🙂

“Thank you for planning an awesome vacation! We loved the two cities and everything you planned! You really listened to our feedback and picked some great things for us.”

“Thank you again for planning such a magical trip for our 20th anniversary. We would have never chosen Spain to visit, and we had an amazing time. We both could have stayed longer. All of the restaurants that we were booked at were fantastic; our anniversary dinner at Mont Bar was seriously worth the hype, it was the best meal we ate in Spain. We enjoyed the tapas walking tour so much in Madrid that we booked one in Barcelona as well. Our most favorite part was getting to know the culture and history of both Madrid and Barcelona, both different and beautiful. We cannot wait to do another mystery trip.”

“We had a great time and truly enjoyed the trip. When we opened the reveal envelope, we were pleasantly surprised to see we were going to Portugal. It was not really on either of our radars — which is exactly why we thought a mystery trip would be a good idea. We kept going to the same types of places over and over; the service provided by Magical Mystery Tours offered a breath of fresh air for our travel planning. We’d certainly book another mystery-type vacation again.”

“We had such a wonderful trip, thank you so much for all your hard work on getting the itinerary built! We were feeling a bit nervous not being in control of the planning, but we were so happy with what you came up with! :)”

“We had an awesome time! Everything went great – really no issues at all, and fantastic choice for us. We made memories that will list me/us forever – exactly what I was looking for!! We were thrilled with the trip you arranged for us.”

“Can’t thank you enough! What an amazing time we had on our Magical Mystery Trip! I can’t begin to explain the excitement, awe, and anticipation we felt as we opened our envelopes at the airport! Our destination – Kauai!!! Everything was planned with meticulous detail, with all our wishes executed perfectly. In addition to the requested excursions, Katie provided a list of other popular places to visit as well as a wonderful list of restaurants. I believe we did and went everywhere she suggested! Life doesn’t have too many surprises; I highly recommend having Katie plan your next holiday. It will truly be Magical!”

“Our mystery vacation was absolutely amazing! Santa Fe was beautiful and all your suggestions were perfect – from the lunch recommendation on Day 1 to our fancy dinner at Sazon (where we met the chef!), you made the experience very special. Everything was so spot-on in terms of our preferences that it would be easy to think I planned the trip myself! This entire experience (from survey completion to trip conclusion) has been great fun – we’re already talking about doing a Round 2.”

Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts. Magical Mystery Tours was amazing, and the anticipation was completely worth it. When we arrived at the airport, we opened our packet and it stated we are going to Costa Rica! We stayed in amazing resorts with friendly and caring staff and amenities that some only dream about. The activities planned each day and reservations at dinner every evening were incredible. The flora and fauna we saw was like nothing we’ve ever seen before. You did an amazing job at planning the best birthday vacation I could ever ask for. We will definitely be booking another magical mystery tour next year.
