Our Travelers' Testimonials




" I just want to thank you for the most memorable trip. Years ago I had this crazy dream of running a marathon in Antarctica for my 40th, did a google search and your company came up. I hadn't heard anything about your company and put a blind faith in hopes of having a decent trip. The trip and the treatment from your company both absolutely exceeded my husband (Gren) and my expectations. Thank you for the memories,"

Manitoba, Canada


"I am just returning  from my first trip with Marathon Tours and wanted to express my appreciation for the wonderful job Jane did organizing the trip. I had a fantastic time and a very rewarding marathon experience.  The opportunity to meet and interact with like-minded marathoners was inspiring and solidified my desire to continue my 7 continents journey.


Thanks in advance for your help and for one of my most memorable and rewarding travel experiences!"




"I did have a wonderful trip to Easter Island. Such a fascinating island. Meeting new and interesting people who share the joy of running is always fun, too. Jacqui was just a fabulous Marathon Tours representative, trip organizer and advisor, person to talk with and turn to, just a great person to meet and get to know a little.

And, let me know if Madagascar is ever offered."

"WDW was a blast. The hotel was EXCELLENT – tell Jen she did a great job. I’ve never stayed on the French Qtr side of the Port Orleans and it was great.

 I had my person worst in both races but still had fun. It was a bit too warm (low 80’s)... but things have been so busy at work that I haven’t even bothered about how my body feels – LOL."

"My name is Jennifer Kahn and I am running the Boston Marathon in 2013.  I just called your helpline and spoke with a woman named Nicole.

She was SO HELPFUL and amazing, and I just wanted to let you know that her kindness and ability to accommodate my hotel needs really made a difference to me.

Thanks again!"

"Scott, I just wanted to thank you and Jane and Nicole for an absolutely perfect trip to Iceland.  It was a dream come true for me, a birthday gift I gave myself for turning 60 this past June, and it could not have been better.  And our guides - I had Kristin for most of the trip - were fantastic.  So much was packed in, I felt as if I'd been there longer than 5 days, but I never felt rushed or exhausted.  The race was great and though it was the first race I've run without my Garmin, and I was in no hurry as I wanted to take in everything, I ran my third best time out of my 16 half marathons! 

The entire trip was very well-planned and executed.  I loved every minute of an experience I will never forget.  Now to save up for my next adventure!"

Drexel Hill, PA



"My name Ken Buenzow.  My wife, Anne, and I participated in the recent Outback Marathon trip.  We had a truly great experience, which was largely due to Kelly's masterful management of the innumerable details of the itinerary and, as importantly, her ability to react quickly, positively, and professionally to situations that caused adjustments to her plans.  She did all this with a smile, and built or reinforced, a great relationship with her Australian counterparts in the process.  We would feel absolutely confident in working with her on a future trip.  We hope you are as pleased with her performance as we are."


Sherman,  TX



"Hope you made it home safe and sound! I just wanted to thank you for helping make our trip to China such a memorable and great experience...one that we will always remember fondly.   Looking forward to planning another marathon tour destination!"  


Calgary, AB



"I had a great time on the Rome trip. Jacquie is a tremendous asset to Marathon tours. I would recommend your trips to any friend without hesitation. Hope to go on another trip next year

Thanks again!"

"My name is Subbu Venkat and I have been an extremely satisfied "customer" of marathon tours for a couple of years now. While I have been so thankful for marathon tours' outstanding services, I had not taken the time to put it down in words and pass it along to you. Until now that is. Better late than never, as the adage goes, I guess!
These days, its extremely rare to find companies who truly care for their customers' best interests and provide prompt services. And your company is definitely one of those rarities. My interaction with your company has been solely through/with Kelly Allen and she is simply outstanding and a true customer advocate. She is extremely prompt, easy to interact with, very patient in dealing with ever changing needs of her customers and always courteous. She goes out of her way to offer alternate solutions. In short, she is such a pleasure to work with.
I wanted to take a moment and thank you, your company and Kelly's services by way of this short email.
You guys are the best and me and my other runner friends look forward to continued use of your company's services."

"Thank you both so much for helping us make our trip arrangements for the Medoc marathon.  Aimee and I a wonderful time both with the group at the marathon and afterwards in Paris and London as well.  The hotel in Paris couldn’t have been more perfect.  We got to sit out on our balcony under the full moon, looking at the Eiffel Tower all lit up and drinking a nice bottle of wine.  Thank you for making the trip great and we are looking forward to joining the 7 Continents Club and our next trip with you guys."
