Trip Testimonials

My travel friends (Beckie, Tonda, and Leah) and I would like to say THANK YOU for such a wonderful Chicago Shopping Trip on Saturday, December 1st. Our group had a wonderful time. The price for the trip was unbeatable. The organization of the trip was flawless. Donna was a wonderful hostess who made sure everyone's needs were met. Bob, the bus driver from excursion travel, was the best driver we have ever had and we have been on quite a few bus trips in the past.

We will definitely recommend future bus trips sponsored by Parks and Recreation to our friends and families. We would certainly be interested in taking future bus trips through the Parks and Recreation. This was our first time and I sure it will not be our last.  

Thanks again for such a wonderful time last Saturday.

Thanks for a great first Cubs game. I really enjoyed the box lunch, donuts and plenty of water! Only thing that could have made it better was a Cub win!

Looking forward to traveling with you again!  Jan S.

I did not get a chance to thank you for the great job you did coordinating the Mackinac Island Trip.  No surprise seemed to throw you or stop us from having a good time.  I thought the trip at a living history farm was a great idea, too bad the rains came.  Would rather have them come on the way home than when we were there🙂 it was a nice trip and I think everyone had fun.  On a personal note thanks for being a big help to Allen and me when we arrived on the island.  Please tell Joe thanks too.

Maybe we will see you next year.

Roseann and Allen C.


Thank you so much for pictures and all you did to make it a amazing vacation (Mackinac Island Trip) for all of us, we are most grateful. Take care!  Debbie G.
