To my runner friends… you MUST call Scott and Marathon Tours & Travel for an amazing international marathon experience! I can’t begin to tell you how great Scott was and how much he did to help us be prepared during a really complicated time to travel internationally and run a marathon! He was with us the entire trip and has become a great friend! We can’t wait to travel with his group again!!
The London Marathon has been on my list for years. Having travelled with Marathon Tours in the past on trips with Jeff and Scott as trip leaders, I knew I was in good hands and things would be seamless for this trip. Marathon Tours is lucky to have both of them representing this company!
The very first trip I took with Marathon Tours & Travel was exceptional. No hiccups, no delays and a wonderful greeting at the hotel. Everything was so well organized and Scott stayed on top of all requests and was very attentive to all the people in the group. Great Job!!! Because of Scott and his awesome customer service, Bermuda by far became my favorite destination for fun and run!!
Overall - a great trip. Once again Marathon Tours and Travels does an outstanding job on seeing that runners, guest and family members received Class A service. Marathon Tours and Travel, and Mr. Scott Guillemette - a top notch travel agency and Mr. Guillemette is one of the best travel agent/planner that I have ever had the pleasure in working with.
Service was outstanding. Marathon Tours and Travels does an outstanding job on all arrangements, and as mentioned in the 1st section above - I/everyone who went on this trip were constantly kept informed. Scott is an outstanding travel service representative.
As a somewhat anxious traveler who had never gone so far away from home I had a few concerns. I called Scott with a list of questions and received educated, experienced and informative answers that made me comfortable. The Itinerary was very structured and specific which I also liked. I felt assured all was safe and everything would be taken care of. I'm thrilled to say it was.
Scott and Ann immediately made every effort to make guests feel welcome and at home, regardless of how far from home that one might be! They're both pros and I very much look forward to the prospect of doing future tours with them.
It was very well organized, well run, well priced. Scott and Jacqui brought a human-touch to the experience that could have easily been treated more transactional and less personal. They looked out for my interests. I tell everyone this. I will be back.
This was one of the best adventure tours I have traveled. Marathon tours has a gem in Scott Guillemette as he is a true cheerleader in all things. He is there for the client from the start to finish, he works at communication of the schedule more than once, and he follows up. We book with Marathon Tours because of Scott, even though we have ties to Albatros. Thanks Scotty G... for another great adventure.
Scott does an amazing job to push the quality of service from the Marathon Tours higher. He is always working, always accessible and has no reservations to clear the way. Scott will listen, and deliver a solution. Even when Albatros delivers slightly under expectations, Scott really tries to make his clients wishes and concerns heard and resolved.
Having Scott & Marathon Tours take care of all the details. Scott is a pleasure to work with - friendly, dedicated, responsive - a true professional. Thanks.
Jeff and Scott provided very valuable information about the race from a participants point of view. This helped me greatly and I was able to better prepare my expectations.
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!!!
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).
We were truly impress with the amazing level of detailed organization on such a grand scale, the hotels A+, food, I don't believe anyone will complain about not having had enough to eat. I am now trying to loose the 10 or 12 lbs I gained. The river cruise was so relaxing, peaceful and very scenic..... Sorry I can't think of any one thing I liked the best. oops, I take that back. Our MT guide Scott was AWESOME. I found myself observing him on several occasions, and I am convinced that he posses a certain quality about him that is exceptional only to those who truly love their job and people in general. To be able to deal with so many people and all the different personalities without once showing any level of annoyance is to be commended.
Scott, Ann, and other the other Paris tour organizers were excellent!! They were professional and very very nice and genuine people. I felt as if they weren't only there to escort us through Paris for the marathon. They were also marathoners and new friends who could fathom the feelings of other marathoners on the trip which gave us all a connection.
I felt like we were ahead of the tourist curve for Myanmar. I loved the fact that not only did I get to go to an exotic location and run a great marathon, but nobody else I know has been to Myanmar if they even know where that is. Scott was a great host. He was very approachable and friendly.
Everything! The waterfalls, the fun people, getting to see so much of the country in a short period of time, but at the same time not feeling like I didn't actually get a vacation. The Icelandic people are truly some of the nicest I've met in the world! Also the Blue Lagoon is just awesome.
Scott was with us, he was very accommodating and helped make this happen during one of the shopping trips in Beijing and in Xian. As for Marathon Tours guides - Scott was fantastic and on top of things
