I had an incredible time on this trip to China. Running the GW was extremely difficult but also very rewarding when I crossed the finish line. The comradery and friendships of fellow runners made this event even more special. Both Scott and Jeff were extremely helpful on this journey and made the experience so much fun. Thank you for creating a first class running experience!!!
Jeff was terrific as were the local guides. I appreciate having a MTT representative on-site who is very knowledgeable, helpful and truly cared about my well-being. Also, the nicest and most enjoyable local guides and drivers of any tour I’ve ever taken.
All of the Marathon Tours team were very helpful with advice and support for the event. Thank you Jeff for advice for my husband on where best to see me and I was so delighted to see him at Tower Bridge and at Big Ben. Very memorable moments for us to cherish!
The marathon- it was absolutely tough, but the views and post-race party made it completely worth it. I don't know that I would ever do that race again, but I would highly recommend it! Going to the Dead Sea the day after was timed just right. That is the ultimate epsom salt recovery soak.
The Holy Land...a trip to the Holy Land. Also, I've been on tours with both Jacqui and Karen, so when I saw they were the tour leaders, I didn't hesitate to sign up.
I always travel with Marathon Tours (this was my 17th trip) because of how well organized the trips are, how easy Marathon Tours makes it to go to these amazing destinations, your great staff who takes such good care of everyone, and the others traveling in the group - nothing better than traveling with other runners!
The historical significance of Israel is undeniable. I enjoyed all the carefully planned tours and lovely accommodations. The half-marathon was challenging but running through the streets of the Old City was an experience of a lifetime. This has been one of my most enjoyable trips taken with Marathon Tours. I will enthusiastically recommend Jerusalem to anyone who feels they are up for the very hilly challenging course. I really can't say enough positive things.
As all my trips with Marathon Tours an overall wonderful experience. Antarctica is a place unlike any other we have visited thus far. It had been on my bucket list forever and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to experience it with such a wonderful group. It still seems quite unreal to have been there - it is a truly magical place. Also, the marathon was quite an experience and successfully completing it will always be one of my biggest accomplishments.
The Race was outstanding, but the trip is about so much more than the race. The opportunity to visit the Antarctic continent is just amazing, and the expeditions coordinated by the staff were exceptional.
It was such an incredible experience that it's hard to pick the "best". The excursions were so much fun and the guides made sure that we saw everything that our areas had to offer. The run gave me some bragging rights. Time on board ship had so much to offer - the presentations were great. I enjoyed getting to know so many people from so many different places. The food was wonderful. And the wildlife was amazing - the whales, the penguins, the seals, the birds.
