We just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had on the Best of China Trip.

The whole China experience was exciting & unforgettable! Thank you so much! We are highly recommending Good Times Travel to all of our friends and acquaintances.

I went on a GTT trip last Saturday (Holy Land Exhibition) with Helga, our tour director. We all enjoyed ourselves so much. HELGA was absolutely wonderful, kind, patient, and very informative. I have had her before on past trips and enjoyed her just as much.  Thanks so much for sharing her with your clients. She makes travelling very enjoyable and educational!!!

I want to compliment you on your choice of tour guides, Jasmin.  I have been taking tours through Glendale College for a while now, and I always look forward to your tours.  Half the reason is Jasmin.  She makes these tours fun and interesting.  She has a great deal of excitement for life and it shows.  She has a great deal of knowledge about the places we will see.  She shares interesting facts.  Also, she is always there making sure everyone is fine and checks to see if there is anything she can do for us to make our trip more enjoyable.  She also makes it a point to speak to everyone individually and to get to know our names.  She works very hard to make sure we are happy.  She is a great asset to your company and to the enjoyment of my trips.

I certainly hope she is my tour guide for all my trips.  Without her, the trip really is not as fun.

I have joined the 3 Single Tours that you have with the Glendale Community College namely (Fillmore Murder Mystery, Follies at Palm Springs and San Diego Rail & Sail).  I just have gone to the San Diego Rail & Sail over the weekend. It was the Perfect Day to do this fun trip.  We all had wonderful time :-).
 
I would like you to know that our Tour Director Jasmin has been so awesome, great, courteous, knowledgeable, funny, (I can put all the compliments I can think of) in all the trips I have joined.  I dont only speak for myself but I firmly believe that the other passengers feel the same way for Jasmin.  In addition, Beverly - the Driver was also great & superb driver. She drove us to and from our destination safely and she is blessed to have a steady hand & watchful eyes that no one gets hurt as she passed by.  Jazmine & Beverly are truly an asset to your travel agency.  Big applause and hooray for these 2 wonderful ladies!!! :-). 
 
I will be joining the Adventures in Lake Arrowhead Tour on July 28, 2014 trhough Glendale Community College and hope that Jasmin & Beverly will be with us on this trip. 

Again, thank you and glad that you are there for these Single Fun Day Trips. 

Sincerely,

Elizabeth Morales


I want to send a shout out for Jasmine, with whom I traveled to Palm Springs on Saturday. She was organized, gave abundant information, counted and cared for one and all, was friendly and fun, and provided excellent travel service.

I recently took the day trip to the Getty Museum and could not have had a better day. Helga, our guide, was so cordial and well-informed about the events of the day. I would sign up for any tour she guides. Our driver Beverly is the absolutely the best I have experienced on any of your tours. Thank you so much for continuing the wonderful day trips.

I had the great fortune to have been given a trip to the Palm Springs Follies last Thursday as a birthday present. Our little group had the best time ever. They were on time, Jasmine kept us entertained with her quick wit & humor; and Eddie was an excellent driver. This is my first experience going with a guided tour and it certainly won't be my last. Thank you Good Times Travel for your selection of our guide & driver.

Greetings,

I would like to add my letter of praise and thank you to the many you have already received about two of your employees, driver Bob and tour leader "J". I was on the "Restored, Reopened and Resplendent" tour on June 24, 2014.  Bob moved the bus efficiently and smoothly through some very difficult traffic. Jay handled the the one incident on the trip, a guest had a medical problem, and he handled it professionally and smoothly. His handling of the entire tour was very friendly and professional. Please extend my "Thank you" to both of these fine representatives of Good Times Travel.

Respectfully Submitted,

James M. Lisanti


Just want to say what a wonderful time (once again) I had yesterday with Jasmin as the tour guide – the trip was fantastic and of course she always makes it a perfect day.  You have found the “diamond in the rough” as they say to have her – she cares so much about each person on the trip always making sure we are well taken care of.

Thanks again!!

The Animals & The Abbey tour was a good tour. The animal sanctuary was different than the usual place. The Abbey has all new buildings since we were there several years ago.. Beautiful place.. Good docent tour.. Lunch was good at a different place.. I'd do the trip again..

Marie Trotter


The Animals & The Abbey tour was great. The animals I found very interesting and such stories of how they were rescued. We got to pet most of them, the tour was terrific. Charlie Brown's lunch was outstanding. I never heard of it before, it was delicious. The monastery which I have been to before was it's usual wonderful place. The monk who gave us the tour, Father Patrick was very personable. He showed us the chapel then how the ceramics were made. One of the workers even stayed late to show us how they were made. I have collected many over the years and it was so interesting to see how the process of how they were made. Allen was his usual very informative guide.

It was a wonderful day.


Just a word regarding Amy who was our Tour Guide to Walt Disney's Concert Hall. She was TERIFFIC!  I travled with you many times and I can truthfully say that she was "The Best".  She was so vey well informed, kind, understanding,( since most all of us were Seniors!), so totally conscious of our safety.  And last but not least, spoke so well, every word and sentence could be heard and understood!  She deserves everyone's compliments.

Sincerely,

Ella Aasen


I had a wonderful time on this trip. Curt and his team are the best, everything always goes so smoothly with them and Jay was super as usual. The only fly in the ointment was when I went to start my car, I had a dead battery!!! But thanks to your staff member Rachel, I was able to get home. She had jumper cables and offered to help me jump my battery and get home safe and sound. Thank you Rachel you are a credit to your employer. 

A very satisfied customer,

Good Morning,
 
Having just returned from one of your day trips we decided to write a short note to say "thank you" for the great time we all had. A group of us went to the Huntington Library on May 10th and we all agreed that it was enjoyable from beginning-to-end. It started with being warmly greeted as we prepared to board the bus; your employees looked happy to be there and ready for a great day. The ride was very comfortable and we arrived at the Huntington Library in record time, thanks to your great driver. Our Tour Guide, Victoria, was bubbly and genuinely friendly. We enjoyed the information she shared about art and some of the interesting history behind the Huntington Library. We felt well taken care of that day. We arrived back at Good Times Travel on time and happy for having had a wonderful outing. We look forward to another great trip with your organization and, maybe, we will be fortunate enough to have Victoria for our Tour Guide again! 

Kindest regards,

Earnie, Nancy, Carol & Howard


Dear Good Times Travel,

Another great trip because of Jasmin. She gave us all this history that she researched in a fun manner.  I have lived in the Valley practically all my life and I did not know half the things she told us about Ventura.  I worked at Warner Bros. for 30 years and didn't know any of the facts about Sherwood Lake, forest  and films that have been shot there etc. It is soooo enlightening to travel with her.  She also gave us facts about Santa Ynez and Solvang.  We already knew 2 words in Danish and we were able to impress our tour guide in Solvang.

How she got a full bus of tourist into the tiny restaurant and out on time and we all had plenty of time to eat and some of us to shop a little was amazing also.

Dustin,

On Wed the 23rd, I took your day tour to the Maloof House, tea and Graber Olives. I have taken many of your day trips over the last 10 or more years, but this one was extra special.  Your tour guide, Jasmin was excellent - we loved her exhuberance and she made the trip very enjoyable.  Plus, seeing the beautiful woodworking of Sam Maloof was very special - such a talented man. We were dazzled by all his accomplishments.  The tea at Barbara's was one of the best (I have been to the Chado in Pasadena and the Four Seasons in Sierra Madre - both w/Good Times.)  The last 2 mentioned were good, but Barbara's is definitely the best of the 3. And the visit to Graber's was the icing on the cake, so to  speak.
Keep up the good work on your varied selections for day tours.  My friends are I are particularly interested in touring historic homes and art museums.

Thanks again,

Dorothy Grant Nowak


Dear Dustin, 
 
I'm taking the time, in this case the extra, extra time to write you in behalf of Gus Celaya and myself because we were so impressed with your tour director Jasmin!  This was our first time with Jasmin and she was outstanding!  She took such good care of all of us and also entertained us with such fun and interesting facts and information about what we were seeing with enthusiasm and never spending too much time or too little time...but just right. Jasmin went around the tables while at dinner, not once but several times, making sure we were all well, happy and having everything we wanted and needed.  Such dedication to us all! Gus and I feel she is a true asset to Good Times Travel!  Please, let her know how we feel.  She deserves to be acknowledged for her work ethics, her patience and caring so much for her group. As the year is coming to an end, Dustin, both Gus and I wish you, your family, the Good Times Travel staff and their families a great, successful, happy and healthy new year!

Warmly,

Martha and Gus 


I have now gone on 2 day tours with Jasmin, her research and notes for us all are OUTSTANDING!!  I have booked 3 more tours with her!
You have an excellent employee!
 
Sincerely,

Paula Kinports

On August 20th, I was on a day tour with your tour guide Jasmin. She is terrific, cracking jokes between her informative narration and had the whole bus laughing. Not only was Jasmin on top of things, it appeared to me that she personally spoke with all of us on the tour during the day. It’s obvious Jasmin is people oriented. She made the tour not only enjoyable but fun. She’s a keeper and a plus for the Good Times family!

Sincerely,

Naomi Wright


Fran and I were very impressed with that trip out to the Goldstone (JPL) Deep Space Center. Everything went off perfectly. The bus, bus driver and the tour guide were first class. The tour guide was a geography/geology teacher at L.B. City College so we had a first class rundown on the geologic structure from start to finish. The docent, Carla, was a real pro at making space program come alive. She was able to make the subject easily understandable at all levels. And the 70 meter dish was really something to see. When we were looking at one of the other dishes, a 35 metered one, all of a sudden it started to rotate and tip all the way over so we could see right inside the dish. I think Carla had something to do with that although she pleaded innocence. It was well worth the time and money. The weather was cool high overcast so the temperstures were perfect.

Dear Good Times Travel,

Thanks for the excellent trip to Joshua Tree yesterday. Tina's enthusiasm is always contagious. It was a long day, but we expected that. We are grateful that we got to see so much of the Park. We were worried that we'd only have time for a peek but we felt that we got a really good look...just what we wanted. Your trips are always well planned and we always enjoy them.

Thanks again.

Gwen and Herb Quick


We just got our parents a gift certificate for Christmas and we know there's nothing they'd rather have! At their ages, they have every "thing" they could possibly need. What they love, are all their adventures, memories and people they have met on thier Good Times trips!

Kathy Brandt


This is a late testimonial, but I wanted to tell you how much my husband and I enjoyed the Southern Charm trip last March to Charleston and Savannah. Everything was first class, hotels, meals, tours. Helga, our tour guide, was outstanding. Our bus driver drove so carefully in all sorts of weather, including torrential rains, and was a true gentleman all the way. We've done many day trips with you and always enjoyed them. This was our first longer one. We've traveled many times with another group that we've loved, but I have to say you measure right up there. We'll be doing more trips soon.

Jeanette Fratto


Dear Dustin,

I thank you for all of the trip pictures and Happy Times' memories. What a fantastic world I have through GTT!

Janet King


My day trip to Joshua Tree National Park on March 24 was informative and enjoyable. Tina did a wonderful job explaining the different plants and rocks we found in the area and I learned more from this trip than the hundred hours I spent sitting for my Geology classes years ago. Thank you Tina and Umberto for making sure we all had a great time.
