President’s Day/Valentine’s Day Weekend

“Thank you for planning a very memorable trip.  I have had the luxury of traveling to several destinations in the past and New York is still one of my favorites.  I think what I enjoyed the most besides the plays was that I didn’t have to do any of the planning or decision making.  As I explained to all those who inquired about my trip, my experience was summed up as:  “We were picked up in a beautiful town car from the airport and upon our departure delivered back in a town car and everything thing else in between was just as fantastic.”

Thank you for all that you planned and did for us.  I hope to return again under your direction.”

Pam Franzman – Indianapolis, IN

“We would like to tell you that we had a wonderful time during our recent trip.

From the waiting car at airport upon arrival to the car picking us up on Monday the service provided was incredible.   We loved the Cuban food at Havana Central and the backstage tour of the Amsterdam Theater was very interesting.   Talking to some of the actors was a definite treat. Lunch at Sardi’s with comments by still more actors was fantastic.  We loved the hotel, the rooms were spacious and the access to the hotel the restaurant & bar very convenient.

Needless to say you made the whole adventure a pleasure.

You can be assured we will travel again with Broadway Across America.”

Gladys and Joe Orlando – Orlando, FL

“My husband and I had a wonderful time in New York this past weekend.  It was our Christmas present to each other so it felt like we were opening up a very special package.  We enjoyed that all of the details were already worked out for us so that we were able to just enjoy the time without any stress.

Thank you for the attention to detail that you provided to make our mini vacation enjoyable!”

Marianna Boyer – Chesapeake, VA

 

Early Spring – Escape to New York

“We just got home from the most wonderful trip in NYC thanks to you guys. Everything was beyond our expectations – airport pickup, hotel, food, and especially all three plays!!!

We will be spreading the word to anyone who will listen and we would love to do a trip like this again. Thank you both for everything!!! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.”

Judy & Russ Latherow – Ogden, Utah

“We loved your restaurant choices, and having the two cast members at our lunch made seeing the shows even more fun.  Our favorite was Once, then Kinky Boots, then The Book of Mormon.

The location of the hotel was perfect.   We made some wonderful new friends and there’s nothing you could have done to make the trip any better.  We will definitely try to do this again.  Great job!”

Suzann Madeley – Austin, TX

“We just wanted to take a minute to tell you that our weekend in New York was wonderful.  You two were perfect hosts, the planning was exquisite and everything went on without a hitch.  We enjoyed the shows and all of your planned events but still had adequate time to explore on our own.

Again thanks and we definitely will do it again if we can.”

Merlin & Pam Green – Lincoln, NE

“We had a grand time. The both of you are truly gentlemen and great planners.  We look forward to your new offerings and will pass the word.

 

With appreciation for your work and our good times in New York City.”

 

Joan O’Reilly – St. Louis, MO

 

 

“You were great hosts and I couldn’t be more pleased with our Broadway Across America trip to New York City.  From initial booking through our final arrival back at our home airport the entire trip was indeed very memorable and very stress free.

 

We very much enjoyed the welcome reception, Sardi’s lunch, Broadway shows, restaurants and talk backs as well as the opportunity to chat with so many interesting folks.  It was a bit surprising to learn we all had much in common in terms of interests and views.  The hotel was very comfortable and accommodating and our drivers were very helpful and punctual.”

 

Al Lopez – Austin, TX     

 

“We appreciate both your efforts to organize an exciting, theater-filled weekend with NO stress.  The location of the hotel was superb especially the wine bar welcome.  Seating at the shows was excellent and presentation by Kimberlee at The New Amsterdam delightful.  Paul was pleased that you individualized the package to accommodate his hectic work schedule.  Our airport pickups were timely; we enjoyed our conversation with Olaf on the return. God bless and keep you and your families.”

 

Patti and Paul Knollman – Bend, OR

 

“Let me begin by saying you two do an awesome job!  We were MOST impressed.

 

We loved the Muse.  Terrific hotel, excellent in every way!

 

Having us meet some of the cast members on the two occasions was great fun!  The tour of the New Amsterdam Theatre was super.  Our rides to and from the airport were such a pleasure, so well-orchestrated and so simple.

 

Overall the trip was perfect!   We look forward to traveling with you again in the future.

 

Thanks for a long weekend of blessings!”

 

Sandy Brady – Albuquerque, NM     

 

“My wife and I had a very enjoyable time on the “Billy Elliot Weekend” and that is largely due to your concern and help with the requests I made.  The orchestra aisle seats we had for all three shows were excellent, as was the hotel room which met all my needs – especially the need for grab bars in the shower.  It was a very spacious room which gave me plenty of space to move around.  An additional and unexpected  “perk” was that it was located very close to the elevators and alleviated any need for a long hallway trek.

 

The provided meals at Lattanzi’s and Sardi’s were excellent and the two performers who spoke were young, enthusiastic, and interesting.

 

Thank you for a very good weekend experience.”

 

Joseph and Agnes Stell – Athens, GA

 

“Just a note to thank you both for a wonderful trip experience.  It ranks at the top of our list for great vacations and part of that was due to your expertise and helpfulness from booking the trip right through the weekend.  I have already recommended Broadway Across America to several friends and will continue to do so.

 

The Muse was lovely, the shows were great and we had plenty of time to ourselves to be the typical tourists.  Thank you again for your professionalism and guidance.”

 

Carmelle & Sherman Rotz – Moline, IL

 

Book of Mormon Broadway Weekend (April 2012)

 

“We had a blast and look forward to traveling with you in the future. My daughter Betsy had a wonderful first NYC adventure and we did many things that were even a first for me in the city.

 

We felt well taken care, and met really nice folks in the group and both the welcome dinner and lunch were wonderful.

 

We saw The Book of Mormon Saturday and both of our Sardi’s actor guests were in our performance and played characters…how thrilling for us!  The play was a riot of fun and far exceeded our expectations.

 

Than you both for your work and a job well done!”

 

Kitty Cahill – St. Paul, MN

 

 

“We want to tell you we had an exceptional New York weekend.  The attention to detail was just terrific.

 

We had a great time.  The shows were terrific and the tour of the theater was like wise perfect.  Kudos to you both.”

 

Judi & Paul Cooper – Albuquerque, NM

 

 

“THANK YOU!   We had a terrific time in NY, you were great organizers, and we would certainly use your splendid services again.”

 

Nan and Ed Nielsen – Denver, CO

 

 

Boston  – Book of Mormon, Fenway Park, Boston Symphony (April 2013)

 

“I want to thank you for the wonderful trip that you put together.  We enjoyed each and every aspect of the trip, but highlights were definitely “The Book of Mormon” and the theater talk-backs and tours (not only of the theater, but of the Freedom Trail and the Duck Boat tour.)  We also LOVED going to the Red Sox Game.  It was a trip that we felt VERY taken care of, and everything was first class, all the way from meals, transportation, to the excellent tour guides we had – ESPECIALLY Kevin.

 

He was so very attentive to everyone during the entire trip, and couldn’t have been more accommodating to the various levels of “comfort” as to people visiting a new city.  Some were very independent, and others liked the security of traveling in a group, and he handled everyone so perfectly.

 

Thank you again for everything.”

 

Cheryl & Dick Franson – Champlin, MN

 

 

“Good morning Gregg and Larry – just wanted to provide you with some feedback about my recent trip with BAA to Boston.

 

Firstly, Kevin was a very personable, pleasant and caring young man.  When some adjustments had to be made, he handled himself with grace, pride and much confidence.

 

The tour itself was well planned and organized.  Everything was orchestrated well and carried out in an orderly manner.  The tickets to both the play and the symphony were fabulous – the tours of the Freedom Trail and the DUCK tour were super interesting.

 

All in all, I really enjoyed the city and the tour.  I would not hesitant to book again at some point with Broadway Across America.”

 

Karen Gurevitch – Alberta, Canada

 

 

 

 

Wicked Girls Getaways

 

Just wanted to drop a note to let you know Jessica and I had a great time on our NY trip in July.  While we weren’t very “wicked,” we enjoyed all the shows and the food was fantastic (shopping was also great!).   The hotel was in the perfect location and a nice size for a NY room!   Thank you again for the great time and your attention to detail.  I’m sure we will do this again in the future!

 

Frances Bosch & Jessica Walsh – Sandy, UT

 

“Thank you for a trip of a lifetime for myself and my daughter.  I had been to New York many times but had never gotten to experience the theatre district in such a personal way.  It was also a special tour because every participant was of “like mind.” We all were there because of our love of theater and New York.  Please keep me on your email list.  I definitely will plan another Broadway Across America tour in the near future.

 

P.S.  Loved the Hotel Muse Hotel!!!!  Impeccable service and best location on Broadway!”

 

Kathy Heidenreich & Amy Alsup – Fairview, TX

 

“Thank you for all the coordination for our recent trip to NYC.  We especially enjoyed the chat back with the cast members of Wicked – it really added to our experience and we felt incredibly special to have such a small group to ask questions with.    The behind the scenes tour was awesome as it allowed us to touch costumes, hear about the elements of the design and production that I didn’t know before.

 

All it all, it was a super fun trip and I look forward to another visit in my future.
Thank you again for making this a terrific trip for us.”

Becky Rooks – Portland, OR

“We had a wonderful experience from beginning to end.  Everything was stress-free and first class.  We enjoyed the meals and the one-on-one interaction with the performers.  The air and ground transportation were flawless and the shows were fantastic!!!  We will definitely be joining you in the future and we are recommending your group to all of our friends

 

Thank you.”

 

Margaret and Dave Brim – Cincinnati, OH

 

“We had such an amazing time!  The trip was so special.  We will be back!  We felt very well taken care of and loved the different events that were planned.  Everything went smoothly and we enjoyed every moment.  Thank you so much!”

 

Gretta Porter – San Angelo, TX

 

Our weekend in New York City was amazing. The three shows were great and met or exceeded our expectations. The meals, behinds the scenes experiences and general ambiance exceeded our expectations.  Many thanks for working to make this a seamless and fun time. We are already looking forward to the next trip.

 

Tom Pendergrass – Kirkland, WA

 

“You guys did an OUTSTANDING job with the Wicked Girls Getaway! This was my first time traveling with you, but guaranteed not to be my last! EVERYTHING was EXTREMELY well organized, EVERYTHING that was proposed to take place in the original information became a reality and the two of you were an absolute pleasure to meet and deal with both on the phone and in person as well.

 

Your choice of hotels was PERFECT, both in location and in service.    The balance of organized activities as well as free time for the guests was very well balanced to make for a memorable trip.

 

Your choice of shows was OUTSTANDING!! Couldn’t even tell you which was my favorite – LOVED them ALL!

 

The meet and greet experiences were my personal favorite part of the trip since it is something that I would never have been able to experience on my own.

 

I have been a theatre fanatic my entire life, but I now have a completely different appreciation for what it takes to make a show successful and what the cast endures before, during and after a show! AMAZING!! The 2 gals that spoke at Sardi’s were an unexpected treat….adorable and informative!

 

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the Behind the Emerald Curtain tour! FASCINATING and VERY PROFESSIONALLY delivered!

 

Thank you again for a theatre experience that will remain a highlight in my memory!!”

 

Jill Garcia – Phoenix, AZ

 

“Just wanted to take this opportunity to extend our personal thanks for the fabulous experience in New York. Everything about the trip was first class from the hotel accommodations, travel arrangements, show quality and seating, lunch at Sardi’s and on and on.

 

Neither of us had ever been to New York City and we were both a bit apprehensive as to what to expect. To our delight, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are actually planning a return trip back to the Westin and more shows possibly early December.

 

Again we can’t thank you enough and we hope to join a future Broadway Across America sponsored trip in the future.”

 

George and Sheri Foster – Westfield, IN

 

“First, I am sooo glad I booked the tour with Broadway Across America. Having a car pick us up and take us to the airport was soooo nice and riding in comfort.    It was a fantastic tour and I had a blast.  My room was great! The shows were FANTASTIC!!!  The seats were awesome for each show and getting to have the actors and actresses come out and speak to us after the show was such a treat.   Second, the welcome dinner a lot of fun. Such an intimate area, great food and wonderful people.

 

It was good to know that all we had to do if we had a problem was pick up the phone and call and it would be taken care of for us.  I had a wonderful time and I will book with you again sometime in the future.  You were great and I appreciate everything you did for us to have an enjoyable trip.”

 

Marjory Mesker – Cypress, TX

 

“Caitlyn and I want to thank you for the wonderful weekend we had while in NYC. This was our first planned tour, and we thank you for all the events. We never expected the full meals; both restaurants served delicious food and had great servers. Wicked was wonderful and the tour was very instructive; we enjoyed both our hosts.

 

Thank you for including the tour of the New Amsterdam Theater. Our host was delightful and it was fun to be able to go on stage and explore such a beautiful theater.

 

Thank you again.”

 

Becky Macaluso – Austin, TX

 

“I wanted to let you know what a glorious experience you arranged for us this weekend.

 

You would have gotten such a kick out of hearing 16-year-old Hailey chronologically detail every second of the trip for her father as he was driving us home from the Houston airport. She did it with total recall. She also said that she had come home just to say goodbye to the family, repack her bags and immediately move to Manhattan. What a wonderful first exposure to NYC you provided for her.

 

I have been to New York many times, but can say without hesitation that because of your splendid program and organization, this weekend was the very best time I have ever had in the city. The fact that I was aware of travel groups that do NOT deliver on promises is what made me bother you so often for details.

 

The Muse Hotel offered an incredible location and beautiful décor and always going the extra mile in customer service.

 

Sardi’s was one of the highlights of the whole trip!  The room was lovely and the food perfect.  Being able to meet the actors and ask them questions was such a special part of the weekend.

 

Thanks again for one of the best weekends of my life.”

 

Middy Randerson – Katy, TX

 

The Tony Awards – “Broadway’s Biggest Night”

 

We had a great time in New York thanks to you. We were treated like royalty with a new surprise waiting for us every time we looked up, from the personal attention at the airport, to the very nice and very well-located hotel, to the first night’s dinner at the Havana, your advice to change our show choice which allowed us to see Beautiful and from the front row of the mezzanine.

 

The Tony Awards were a rich experience for us, never previously knowing the opportunity was available.    We make frequent trips to the city and the fact that you didn’t fill our days with activities was much appreciated as we could do and see a lot of things on our own.

 

So thank you from both of us.  It was a perfectly executed trip!

 

Bruce & Margie Burns – Columbus, OH

 

“Bill and I just wanted to thank you both for the wonderful Tony Award Weekend trip you helped coordinate for us.   It was truly a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience and we had so much fun!

From the moment we arrived, we were treated very well and everything from the car service to the hotel was top notch.   We can’t thank you enough for all your help and putting up with all my questions.  The Awards themselves was a surreal experience and it truly was the icing on the cake!!!

Thank you again.  We were truly blessed!”

Barb & Bill Bahr – Pickerington, OH

 

“Well, you did it again!   A magnificent Broadway experience.  The three sisters cannot think of anything that wasn’t outstanding.  We loved the shows, the welcome cocktail party and dinner were perfect, the Tony Awards were awesome, and the After Party was out of this world.  What a time we had.

 

The oh-so-helpful airport pickups and drop-offs made the whole experience flawless.  Whenever we talk about a trip to New York, our first thought is to contact you.

 

All in all, the trip was perfect and we are boring all our friends with our constant talk about what a wonderful time we had.

 

Doris, Wanda and Clare – Boise, ID and Seattle, WA

 

“I am back home in Seattle with wonderful memories of our NY trip with Broadway Across America.  You did a wonderful job and I was very impressed with your handling of every detail.  The Tony Awards night was fabulous, our plays were so enjoyable, our hotel was convenient and nice and our transportation worked out very well.

 

With my friend Pat having a little trouble getting around, it was very thoughtful of you to give her that extra attention and it was a help to me as well.

 

Thank you for a wonderful time.  I would like to travel with you again and I will certainly recommend you to others.”

 

Marian Herrin – Seattle, WA

 

“Thank you again for another fabulous weekend with Broadway Across America.  Everything was perfectly planned, on schedule and went without a hitch; even the rain slowed down in time for Sunday night–you must have some kind of influence up above.  We loved all the shows and the Tony Awards on Sunday night were very special – just being there was a thrill.

 

We felt like VIPs.   We are your biggest fans and if you plan it, we will try to be there, if possible.

 

Thank you again.”

 

Beverly Borden – Houston, TX

 

“Thank you again for your excellent care of myself and granddaughter, Bradie while we were in your wonderful city recently for the Broadway tour package.  You both handled everything so nicely and you are both gentlemen, which folks like myself value highly in those with whom we do business.

 

The walking tour was also nice and very informative and we appreciated the tour guide’s knowledge and personal notes very much.  Although we are both glad to be back home in Oregon now, we won’t soon forget you hospitality, professionalism and acquaintance.

 

Thanks again for making us feel special!”

 

Tawni Caldwell – McMinnville, OR

 

“This is a long overdue thank you for everything you did to make our visit to New York so wonderful and memorable. 

 

I was amazed how well everything was organized and how you all remembered everybody’s idiosyncrasies and requests without any apparent referencing!  We loved every minute of our visit despite making such a mess of finding that lovely restaurant on Friday evening. 

 

 

In the meantime ‘cead mile maith’ (gaelic : a hundred thousand thanks) for our wonderful trip and the even more wonderful memories.”

 

Yvonne Herterich and Mary Smyth – Chicago, IL & Dublin, Ireland

 

 

 

Ireland:   Once in a Lifetime Trip to the Emerald Isle

 

“Once in a Lifetime Tour of the Emerald Isle’ was all that was advertised and even more.  I always wanted to go to Ireland and the trip was so well organized, with interesting stops, superb accommodations, a fantastic driver and, of course, the efficient Marie.

 

You must have hand-picked everyone on the tour.  It was a compatible, fun-loving and interesting group.

 

Thank you again.”

 

Glenna Drummond – Victoria, British Columbia

 

“I have been meaning to write to you to tell you just how amazing our trip was to Ireland!   I have to tell you that MARIE IS AMAZING…and she is what made the trip above and beyond PERFECT! She is so attentive, charming, organized, knowledgeable and just overall lovely! She and Joe were such a great team.

If there was ever any issue, she was right there to handle even the smallest one. I felt like she was there for each and every one of us. She has a way of making everyone feel like they are the most important.
But anyway, this was by far the best trip I have ever been on – it was just fabulous.

Everything was first class and so well organized and thought out. I loved the food, the people, the hotels, even the motor coach was great!

 

Hoping to get on another one of your fabulous trips again soon.”

Kerri Cohen – Baltimore

 

“I just want to thank you for letting me have “four spots” for the third tour to Ireland.  It was a wonderful trip in many respects, and Barbara, Janet, Mari, and I had a fabulous time.

 

Joe, the guide/driver was just the best…such a wealth of knowledge on Irish history, a great jokester, and wonderful singer.  We thoroughly enjoyed him.

 

Marie was great at keeping us on time and always with a smile on her face.   The young man who helped with the luggage, Sean, was adorable.

 

We had a wonderfully congenial group which made it very pleasant every day.   Thank you for putting this special trip together.

 

We four San Antonio ladies feel blessed that we were able to take this trip.”

 

Holly Denton – San Antonio, TX

 

“Our trip to Ireland was wonderful! There were so many highlights that it’s difficult to even begin mentioning them.  Uppermost, as I’m sure you have been told over and over was the trip with Joe as our guide.  The trip would have been great without him, for you set up a wonderful trip, but with him it was over the top!!  He touched our hearts in so many ways.  Never have we been on a tour that encompassed all that he brought to the trip.  It will be difficult to ever top this trip!

 

Marie did a superb job and made every effort to make our trip memorable.  She went over and above, and we truly appreciated that.

 

Thank you for all you effort in making this truly a “once in a lifetime experience.”

 

Beth Duarte – San Antonio, TX

 

“Thank you for the great Ireland adventure.   Janet and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  We appreciate the effort you and your team put into making the trip a memorable occasion for all. We will be looking forward to your future postings for the next great adventure.

 

Again thanks a million for making this a great trip for all, your effort in planning every part was a great success and we could not have been happier.  We will be looking forward to your emails for the next trip abroad.”

Don Ciesielski – Chesapeake, VA

 

“I want to thank you for truly the experience of our lifetime.  Jim and I will always have great memories of both New York and Ireland.

 

As for you and your staff, we can’t thank you enough.  You all were extremely professional and totally one of us.  We would forget that you weren’t just tourists among us, but we were also aware that our trip leaders were the good shepherds who were always aware of their sheep.

 

Please keep us on your mailing list for future adventures.  I overheard some of the others suggesting places they’d love for you to take us, so maybe we’ll see you again one of these days.”

 

Jeannie & Jim Mangham – Snellville, GA

 

“I want to thank you for planning such an amazing trip to Ireland.  It was a perfect journey and I loved every minute of it.  I think that you are both very good at what you do; your efforts have left me with unforgettable memories and dreams about future adventures.

 

I will look forward to traveling with you again sometime!”

 

Jessica LeFevre – New Berlin, WI

 

“It was a FABULOUS trip – much due to Gregg & Brendan for their wonderful collaboration and planning.  They were the best hosts!!

 

Thank you again for the wonderful trip!  I look forward to more with this group.”

 

Robin Harris – Lees Summit, MO

 

“Jim & I had an awesome time in Ireland. We made many new friends in the group we traveled with.  Gregg and Brenden were fabulous guides which added to wonderful time we had.  Please include us on all future mailings of upcoming trips and events.  We would love to join the group in London.”

 

Kim & Jim Kowitz – Superior, WI

 

“Our tour of Ireland with Broadway Across America was really wonderful, and I wanted to thank you for the time and effort it took to put the trip together, as well as to make sure everything was in order during our stay overseas.

 

Neil and I often talk about how great the food was – so many memorable meals    We thought your choices regarding sightseeing, dining, accommodations, and entertainment were great in both Ireland and New York.  Our tour guide, Brendan, was excellent, too  – very knowledgeable and courteous to everyone.  It was a memorable trip for all the right reasons, and we look forward to traveling again with you in the future.”

 

Anna & Neil Mullin – Gadsden, AL

 

 

 

London Summer Excursions

 

“Thank YOU for ALL you did to make our London trip one of the most memorable ever!  My sister and I had the trip of a lifetime. We are STILL telling family and friends about our AMAZING journey.   Gregg was an INCREDIBLE host and our Blue Badge Guide, Nigel, was THE BEST! They made us feel so comfortable. Gregg was our distinguished leader, very patient and passionate about things to do and see, provided everything we could possibly need and exceeded our expectations.  We felt like family. He and Caitlin were Priceless!

Because of our experience with Gregg hosting London, we would definitely travel with Broadway Across America again.

 

Thanks again for EVERYTHING!”

 

Adrienne Esteen – New Orleans, LA

 

“We wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our trip to London and how good a job you did in planning and directing our tour.  You were flexible when members of our group opted out of an activity or arranged to go to a different show, and more patient with late stragglers than I ever could have been.  You made the trip easy and fun for everybody.

 

The two of us got a kick out of Nigel and thought he was excellent guide.  We had no idea how very good he was though until we stayed an extra two days to take day trips to a few other places and found neither of the guides as well-prepared friendly, enthusiastic or as thorough as Nigel!

 

The hotel you chose for us could not have had a better location and was as luxurious as anyone could have wished.  The high-tea experience was one we never would have planned for ourselves, but it was a real treat.  We thoroughly enjoyed the plays and the chance to see London and nearby sites without having to do a lot of planning on our own.

 

The trip was perfect as far as we are concerned, and you both deserve accolades for doing such a great job in planning and executing the program.”

 

Mary-Anne & Gordon Thompson – Richmond, IN

 

“Now that our trip to London is over, and we have all settled back into routine, I just wanted you both to know that we had a wonderful time and fully enjoyed everything.  Thanks for another great trip.

 

Just wish we could have stayed a little longer!   However, we were so pleased with all that we did see and do.   I don’t think you could improve this trip if you tried given the amount of time that we had–all so well planned.

 

PS  Just loved our hotel, the personnel–so nice and helpful, and food was delicious! Nigel was great and so informative, too!”

 

Cheryl Smith & Patricia Rippetoe – Frankfort, KY

 

“Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!   What a truly wonderful trip.  Renie and I enjoyed everything about our trip with you to London.  The hotel was outstanding – a really first class, beautiful hotel and location was the best.   The shows were amazing, especially the Wizard of Oz which far surpassed my expectations.  Nigel just made the sights of London that much more special.

 

Thank you for all of your planning and arranging plus all the great “extras.”  This terrific trip will truly be a highlight of my life.

 

Please keep us on your mailing list as we would love to travel with Broadway Across America again.”

 

Lois DeYoung – Brentwood, NH

 

“I have nothing but praise and great memories from London and this experience.  The trip was fabulous in every aspect.  I loved the hotel, the location, the sights, the plays, the High Tea and of course Nigel!!   I believe that Kevin Spacey playing King Richard III will be one of the performances of a lifetime to have seen. Also, the Emerald City will be etched in my memory as one of the most spectacular sets.  Again, I have nothing but positive memories and accolades for you and Nigel keeping us on track!!

 

I will definitely be looking forward to my next “Broadway” trip, here or overseas.”

 

Ann Mirageas – Bedford, NH

 

“First let me tell you both, that Dawn and I had a fantastic weekend and want to thank you for your wonderful organization and caring!!!   I am so impressed with how organized and caring the both of you are.  The group was a great group – we had lots of laughs together.   And I loved the after-show events – especially the last night – and the dinner at The Stafford was absolutely fantastic.

 

What makes these trips so special is that you truly make a fantastic effort to make sure everyone is satisfied with the arrangements and, in simple words, you truly care!  And if something isn’t right, you make every effort to correct it.  That’s why we keep coming back!

 

Looking forward to my next trip with you.”

 

Ruth Rosenblum – Longmont, CO

 

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed the trip to London and I thought your team did a great job.  I would certainly think about going back as obviously London is such a fabulous destination and you guys were very caring, detail oriented, adding greatly to the whole experience.

 

I thought Nigel was a terrific guide.  I thought one of the best parts of the trip was the back stage tours.  The hotel was great especially the people who worked there.     Also a plus that breakfast was included along with room service.

 

Thanks so much for doing what you do and being so good at it.”

 

Doris Gould – Boston, MA

 

“I cannot begin to tell you how I enjoyed the trip. You had everything planned perfectly, and to be able to do that with 36 people is quite a feat. The shows were great and varied, the dinners were delicious and unique. Locations for the dinners were special unto themselves. The hotel gets an A+ rating from me. You and Gregg made traveling through London simple.

 

By the end of the stay, we had the underground down pat. I definitely will be interested in future trips. Put me on your list, please!   And again…thanks to both of you for an amazing experience.

 

P.S. I LOVE NIGEL!”

 

Bonnie Rothfuss – Lebanon, NH

 

 

 

Columbus Day Weekend

 

“It was an amazing weekend and I don’t think we could possibly have seen three better shows; they were spectacular and such a terrific variety.  They were all beyond my wildest dreams and a memory for a lifetime.  The welcome dinner was delicious with so many very nice people,

 

The walking tour was incredible and we all did well – even this old lady!  Lunch at Sardi’s was also delicious and meeting Bethany and Kyle was so enjoyable.  Also the chat back at Motown was beyond our expectations.  The car service was really great; both drivers were terrific.”

 

Joan Knowles – Winnipeg, Alberta

 

“I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did organizing and hosting our Broadway weekend.  It was the first time either of us had been to a Broadway play, but I don’t think it will be the last!

 

From the time we landed to the time we flew home, our trip was planned to give us the best Broadway and New York experience!    We loved the extra touches, such meeting the young dance captain at Sardi’s and getting our “up close and personal” time with the cast of Chaplin.   And the guided tour of Central Park was wonderful!

 

Thank you for all you did to make our trip so wonderful!”

 

Connie & Jerry Emery – The Villages, FL

 

“Just wanted to pass along what a wonderful time we had this weekend.  I know we came across as being the ultimate over achievers but since this was a once in a lifetime event for us we knew we needed to make the most of it.

 

Both of you did an awesome job.  The personal contact with the both of you really made this much more memorable.  Adding that personal touch was not expected and was above and beyond cool.

 

Thank you so much!”

 

The Seattle Sisters (Toni Barth)

 

“I am late in replying, but I wanted to let you know that my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our Columbus Day weekend. We have taken many trips to NYC before, for which I did all of the work buying tickets for shows, booking the flights and the hotels, and I must say, I much prefer to have you do it!

 

It was so easy and the seats were excellent.  On top of that, we very much enjoyed all of the little insider extras that you were able to provide, like the chat back and the lunch with our special Broadway guests. We also enjoyed meeting new people from around the U.S. that were also part of the tour, and our walking tour of Central Park was terrific.  I really can’t think of any constructive criticism.  We enjoyed it all!

 

So keep doing what you are doing and we will most definitely be back!!

Thanks again for your wonderful hospitality.”

The Country Music Awards – Nashville

 

“We thoroughly enjoyed every part of our trip and would do another trip if the opportunity presents itself.  The hotel was fabulous as well as their restaurant.  We were treated very special.  The singer-songwriter show was phenomenal.  What a great chance to see up close and personal the songwriters and hear their stories and listen to their songs.  We spent a rainy Wednesday at the CMA Hall of Fame and it was fantastic.  There was so much to see and do there that the rain was not an obstacle.  We do plan on going back to Nashville and exploring more.  Thank you for a WONDERFUL trip.”

 

John and Patti Wahle – Cincinnati, OH

 

“Once again our experience with you and the CMA Awards was amazing!  The songwriter’s concert was absolutely one of the best experiences we have ever had – cannot believe we were able to be there and enjoy the performance in such an intimate setting!

 

The CMAs never fail to provide a memorable night.   I loved Country Late Night and was so happy to acquire the Zac Brown Band signed guitar as part of the Silent Auction and know I helped such an amazing cause as well!

 

Hotel accommodations were excellent- so convenient and the front desk was friendly and accommodating to all our needs!”

 

Lisa Lex – Columbus, OH

 

 

 

“Thank you so much for the wonderful trip you arranged for us to the CMAs in Nashville.  Everything from the flight, sedan service, hotel accommodations in a terrific location, the CMA seating and the “after party” were first class with everyone and everything on time.  We would certainly recommend traveling with you again.  Thank you once again for making it a great memory.”

 

Linda Moyer – Phoenix, AZ

 

“We just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know what a wonderful time we had. The organization was terrific, especially given the weather circumstances. We would definitely consider another trip with Broadway Across America and CTI.

Thanks again for the great memories.”

Christmas in New York City

“Thank you for a wonderful tour.   We did not know what to expect.  We have travelled a little, but have never before on a planned tour.

 

The highlights were:

 

* Your incredible organization, attention to detail and personal attention to each and every one of us.

 

* The Muse Hotel, spaciousness, classy, and location could not have been better, given our itinerary.

 

* We were in walking distance of all venues, and many others. We are saying a lot in this instance, as I use a walker.

 

* The itinerary was nothing short of wonderful in every aspect, and the surprises were special and very much appreciated.

 

All in all, we were so impressed and will be quick to recommend to our friends. We hope to travel with you again and look forward to the tours planned for later in 2015.

 

In the meantime, a very Merry Christmas and all the best to you and your families in the New Year.

“Susie and I finally made it home to Dallas after some delays at both airports and the parking facility, and an icy drive home from the airport.

We had such a blast in New York! While we were “stranded,” we saw two other shows and Chelsea Market. We were so much better off than everyone at home who could not get out, many of whom were without any power for 2 to 3 days!

You both went so far above and beyond what you needed to do, and I so much appreciate everything that you did!  It’s easy to be great when everything goes perfectly. It takes someone special to maintain that integrity and professionalism when the unexpected is encountered.”

Jeanne Stephens – Richardson, TX

 

“I had a marvelous time on our trip last week.  Louise Link and I really appreciated you getting us Kinky Boots tickets at the last minute!

 

I was quite impressed with how available you two were to answer questions, get us where we needed to go, etc.  You are so friendly and helpful!

 

I would go again in a heartbeat!

 

Thank you again!”

 

Pat Grainger – Carleton Place, Ontario

 

“Just wanted to let you know what a top-notch time we had on this trip!  The accommodations and selections you made for plays and dining were absolutely marvelous.  We would not hesitate to recommend Broadway Across America Travel to anyone!   May you have a blessed Christmas with you and yours.”

“Thank you for a great time in New York.  Carla and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip and the plays that you arranged for us.  The service was great and the accommodations were outstanding.  We appreciate the effort you made to make our trip enjoyable and look forward to another Broadway Across America trip in the future.”

 

Jim Wright – Harker Heights, TX

 

“Thank you for a delightful visit in New York.  Rick and I have been to New York before, but on our own or with friends.  This was our first tour and it was great, beginning with the transportation between the hotel and airport, the accommodations, the meals, and the shows.  Plus we met some very nice people including you, our hosts.  We hope to do this again next year.”

 

Velva and Rick Flot – Slidell, LA

 

“Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful experience in NYC. You both were excellent hosts and I enjoyed all the great extras.  I was truly a happy guest and would do this again sometime. 

 

The dinner at the Havana was superb and Sardi’s luncheon was really fantastic too. Loved the hotel and they also did a great job to make us all comfortable and happy guests.

 

The plays and the Rockettes Christmas special were awesome. It has always been my dream to see the Rockettes and I loved it so much!!  I would see that over and over again!!

 

It was fantastic to meet the people from all over the USA and what great people they all were.

 

Loved having the sedans picking us up and the drivers were both excellent and very interesting.  Thank you for that service and the gratuities you gave them for us.

 

It was so nice to meet both of you.  You guys were the best hosts and I thank you so much for all you did for us.”

 

Jerri Suominen Wolder – Park City, UT

 

“The trip that you arranged for us was a pure delight. We enjoyed the shows and talking with the actors and Rockettes which were arranged after the shows and during our meals. Speaking of meals, the venues which you chose were memories that will be long remembered. This was one of our easiest and relaxing (not to mention fun!) events we have ever been on. Loved NYC and all what went on there.

 

Please keep us in mind for future trips (London) – can’t wait!”

 

Tom & Ann Brady – Houston, TX

 

“Dara and I had a great time. Everything was first class. I travel a lot and understand

what a task you had for all that were there. As for Dara and I, we will recommend

Broadway Across America whole heartily!

 

Hope to see you again.”

 

Ed & Dara Foy – Macon, GA

 

“Janet and I had a great time and will definitely do this again in the near future.  It was wonderful.  Everything about our trip turned out to be better than I expected.  The plays were great, the hotel was great, the location to everything was great, what can I say.”

 

Jerry and Janet Stith – Shepardsville, KY

 

“Lisa and I had a fabulous time in New York with Broadway Across America.  It was wonderful having the opportunity to chat with cast members of Memphis and La Cage.  This was definitely above and beyond the normal experience of theater goers.  We also thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and atmosphere at Sardi’s, as well as the chance to question, listen to and meet the Rockettes and producers of Memphis.  Loved the New Amsterdam Theatre tour since my favorite musical is Funny Girl.  The concierge at The Muse (a lovely hotel) recommended a restaurant across the street, Havana Central, and we had a delicious dinner there.  Lisa and I walked all over New York City in our free time.  Thanks to your recommendation to try the New York Sightseeing hop on/hop off bus, we were able to see the remaining highlights of New York City – at least a glance! We didn’t want to see our trip end, but did enjoy the farewell cocktail reception at Hurley’s before we departed.

 

Thank you again for putting together a memorable experience enjoyed tremendously by this mother and daughter. We hope to enjoy future trips with Broadway Across America.”

Lucky Guy – Starring Tom Hanks (May 2013)

 

“Thank you for hosting the wonderful trip to New York.  You did a terrific job of keeping us informed.  We had not been to NY before, so it was a new experience for us.  There are so many interesting things to see…and so many people!!  The shows were excellent.

 

Our hotel room was very comfortable and the location couldn’t have been better.  The group meals were super and much enjoyed.   Your presence at both was very much appreciated — you are very good hosts.

 

We look forward to hearing about upcoming trips.  Again, thank you.”

Fences – Starring Denzel Washington (July 2010)

 

“I wanted to let you know how much Mahalia and I enjoyed our weekend in New York. It was an amazing weekend and much more than I expected. It took a couple of days to recoup but it was worth it.

I really appreciated the attention to all the details that you and the rest of the staff at Broadway Across America provided.

 

I loved the walking tour – hearing about the history of the theater district as well as some of the major tourist attractions in the city. We really enjoyed hearing about the behind-the-scenes insight from the three actors.  All three Broadway shows were fantastic. I loved every minute of it.  I met some wonderful people who are avid theater lovers as me and believe that was also why we had such a great time in NYC.

 

I look forward to the opportunity to attend another event with Broadway Across America.

 

Thank you again for a wonderful experience!”

 

Kimberly Martin – Chicago, IL

 

“This was my first trip with Broadway Across America and it was awesome!  The sedan service was on time and the driver was well-experienced and very helpful w/information about traveling to New York.  The Muse Hotel was beautiful, fresh, and relaxing, the staff very accommodating. The reception at the Dream Hotel was brilliant! Meeting people with similar interests, laughing and talking non-stop gave us the opportunity to make additional plans during our stay in New York.

 

Lunch at Sardi’s was incredible and the Q&A section was a nice surprise.  Our shows were magnificent! I will be talking about this trip a lifetime.  I totally enjoyed my stay in New York.

 

We wonder if you can top this.  Keep up the amazing work!”

 

Mahalia Johnson – Chicago, IL

 

“I had a wonderful time in New York and will consider a Broadway Across America trip again.  The reception and dinner the first night were nice because I got to meet other guests and the staff at the restaurant was very professional, friendly and accommodating.  I enjoyed the tour at the Amsterdam Theatre and the guide was very knowledgeable and had many stories.  Lunch at Sardi’s was perfect. The shows offered were perfect and the seats were good.  Being picked up at the airport and hotel went smoothly and was convenient.  I loved the location and service at the hotel.

 

You were very helpful and professional.  Thank you for putting the trip together and managing all the details.  I definitely will travel with Broadway Across America Travel again.”

 

Ann Marie Hermosillo – Mesa, AZ

 

 

A Little Night Music – Catherine Zeta Jones & Angela Lansbury (March 2010)

 

“We had such a fantastic time!  I can’t think of anything much better that could have been done.  We truly enjoyed all of the shows.  The behind-the-scenes tour was another highlight of the trip.  She did a fantastic job!  This trip in all was so much more than expected.

 

We simply had a blast.  Thanks so much for pulling this together!  It was truly an experience of a lifetime….which I might have to repeat sometime soon!”

 

Valerie Burman – Houston, TX

 

“This was an absolutely delightful three days and your efforts to make it that is greatly appreciated.  Thank you for putting everything one could possibly want from the lovely hotel to delightful restaurants and theater in one weekend and in an affordable manner .  Had a great time!  Please keep me on your mailing list.”
