Thank you for a wonderful experience! It was my first time traveling with Marathon Tours and I was blown away! The tour was well organized and it just got better and better as the days went on. I will definitely join Marathon Tours again in the near future.
I was so appreciative and impressed with Jeff and Nicole because they helped me up to the end. I was a bit confused at the airport and they still helped me and did it with an attitude that made me feel like I wasn't being a burden to them. Thanks so much!!
Jeff was very considerate and organized. He waited for all the runners to finish at the finish line, gave us each individual attention and kept track of all the events. Perfectly planned vacation with someone else doing the work.
What did I like best? Meeting people with similar interest, all the details planned, having my race number already picked up so I didn't have to waste time going to the race expo. Jeff was a fabulous host and made an extra effort to include people who were single travelers and ensure everyone was having an enjoyable vacation.

This was my first marathon, I had a thousand questions and Scott had a thousand answers. Scott was FANTASTIC
The race was fabulous, but sharing it with the people I met on the trip -- including the MT folks -- made it so much more memorable. It was this incredible group vibe of excitement and anxiety. I had so much admiration for everyone I met, who, like me, wanted to take on this challenge and visit this far away place. I never thought I'd say this, but I loved being part of a tour that involved riding on buses with new friends. It was like camp for grown-ups, and I didn't want it to end.
The whole trip was amazing! We were discussing that it would have been great to have another night in Xi'an, but then we would have to give up something else. It was a very packed itinerary, but I wouldn't have it any other way. The Tibet extension was great and I would definitely recommend it to others. The Marathon Tours staff was great as always. This was my second trip with Scott and my fourth with Jacqui. They made me feel right at home and like a member of the family. On every trip I've taken, I've met great people and we still keep in touch (on social media and in person).
This trip was an awesome experience. Marathon Tours provided an excellent service. This trip was well worth the money.
I was so well taken care of I did not even wear a watch. It was nice to have all the decisions and logistics taken care of so we could focus on the venues and the overall experience. It was really a downer having to make my own breakfast and drive my own car!!
The atmosphere of traveling with a group of fellow runners. I have been on several group type trips and nothing has had the same sort of camaraderie, support, respect and level of understanding as runners traveling together.
