I wanted to send you all a quick note to congratulate and thank you for a first class trip and an unforgettable experience. Everything about your all's operation was excellent, from the communication with you personally pre-trip, to the information and itineraries, support in country (including great tour guides and all the sites), and knowledgeable and upbeat staff. I have zero suggestions for improvement.
I just wanted to take a moment to say "Shae Shay Nee"…Stephen and I had a WONDERFUL and AMAZING experience in China. Your attention to detail and organization made out trip stress-free and totally enjoyable. From the Wall to the Warriors we couldn't have and a more seamless transition to tours, airports and hotels. Words can not totally express the gratitude we really feel.
It was a pleasure meeting you, Jeff, Lee and Jacqui. We also LOVED our Beijing tour guide, Lilly…she was funny, pleasurable, accommodating and informative…learned so much from her.
Thanks for making this once in a life time trip to China so extraordinary, memorable and a trip to remember.
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.
What I liked best was the camaraderie. This trip was filled with supportive individuals with a similar purpose--to run the Great Wall. I also enjoyed the tours and excursions. Some may want more free time, but being in a foreign country, it was good to be structured-making sure we saw the important areas of the country.
Everything seemed to come together perfectly for this trip. I honestly feel the money I spent was worth every penny for the cultural experiences I received.
