Tour-Rific has organized multiple trips for us over the years.

I have always used Tour-Rific of Texas because their customer service and knowledge of the destination is unbeatable. Tour-Rific has organized multiple trips for us over the years.  These include multiple trips to NYC, DisneyWorld/Orlando, New Orleans, Disneyland, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, and South Padre Island. Tour-Rific will work with us to find out exactly what we want to do, make some suggestions, then create a trip that is tailor made to the size, interests, and ability of our group. Upon our return from the trip, they always follow up to ask about the various activities, venues, and dining options to see how they can continue to improve to better serve their clients. If there ever is a problem while on a trip, which is almost never, they are available round the clock and take care of it immediately and well above our satisfaction.  Tour-Rific has never failed, and they have a lifetime customer in me.

The staff at Tour-rific is always very professional and has taken my suggestions to plan the best trip possible for my students.

We love working with Tour-Rific

We love working with Tour-Rific of Texas because they take care of everything. It is a one stop shop for all of our travel needs. The Tour-Rific of Texas staff answers every question and deals with my mess with grace and positivity. I am so thankful that they have patience for me. No matter how many mistakes I make, no matter how many times I call, no matter how many emails I forgot to respond to, TRoT always makes me feel like their favorite client.

My most memorable trip with TRoT was my very first year with them. I made a HUGE mistake on our itinerary which required contracting our drivers for an extra 8 hours, getting hotel rooms for them, etc. I was IN THE PARK when I figured it out, and it was absolutely my own fault. They made it happen over the phone. TRoT are consummate professionals, they work hard to go the extra mile to give our students the best trip experience possible, and I will gladly work with them year after year.

Email between Orchestra Director & parent

“I am so glad the students had such a great time in Chicago! This was a fabulous trip which exceeded all of our expectations in every possible way. In short, we learned a ton and had a blast doing it! In regard to your volunteering to be our trip coordinator for next year—This is great news! I know you will do a great job! The first thing to do is to start working with the Travel Company Tour-Rific of Texas on what our in state options are and what the costs are projected to be. I have already asked them to investigate three possible in state trips for next year: Thanks again for all your help and support! I am so happy with the way the Chicago trip turned out!”

THANK YOU sooooo much for taking care of our bus transportation

“THANK YOU sooooo much for taking care of our bus transportation. I cannot thank you enough. It had truly been a worry for me. Thank you again”

“LA – Fabulous!

I’m sitting in John Wayne Airport and just thought I’d send you a quick note about how picture perfect our trip was! The weather was amazing – I know, not your doing – but it sure makes a trip sweeter! Loved the itinerary, so well thought out based on attractions, traffic & hotel. Our hotel had a great breakfast, comfy rooms & terrific pool. Our final trip feast at Claim Jumper was incredible. The kids loved the Pirate thing……and they loved the recording session. Everything was wonderful because of Tour-Rific’s meticulous planning and follow-up. Our bus driver was precious, you might want to request him again in the future. Many thanks to all at Tour-Rific who swiftly answered my questions, put out any fires before I even had a chance to smell smoke. This was a great trip.

I hope all of your Spring Break travelers are as happy as the Birdville HS Singing Hawks”

I have been pleased to recommend Sandi and Tour-Rific® of Texas for group travel needs

“When I began teaching at Memorial — one of the first calls I received was from Sandi Kerth. The mission of her phone call was to assure me that her work was of high quality and that I would always be satisfied. Well — she undersold herself.

As I choose a destination for my orchestra to travel each year — I immediately call Tour-Rific® because I know that the company’s experience and care is so strong that I need not call any other. The Memorial Orchestra has traveled to Corpus Christi, Bandera, Orlando, Winter Park, Chicago and New York City under the watchful eye of Sandi and her team — and never have we experienced anything less than first rate attention. I know that the ladies of the Tour-Rific® team work on each of our trips as if it were going to be their own family vacation.

On many occasions — I have called Sandi to tell her of our chosen destination and immediately — she was able to tell me the great attractions of the area, the ins and outs — the details only an experienced person could know. During the trips — I realize the number of things that would have been overlooked had the Tour-Rific® team not covered them — and even better was the time saved because of the things they already knew to prepare for.

Over the years — I have been pleased to recommend Sandi and Tour-Rific® of Texas for group travel needs — without even considering anyone else. I am confident that these ladies can handle your needs as well.”

Top notch professionalism and genuine good people!!”

For many years now,

For many years now, we have been using Sandi, Caye and all of the other wonderful people at Tour-Rific for all of our Technical Theatre field trips within the United States. All have been successful!

“Good morning Tour-Rific,

Thanks for another awesome trip — we had a blast!

The hotel and its staff were really wonderful; I would highly recommend it for other groups.

The sculpture gardens were beautiful. One of our chaperones is a sculptor who actually has a piece there so we had an excellent guide!

The dinner cruise and jazz brunch; food was good and the ensembles were terrific; some of the kids even sang with the group on the boat. Everything went smoothly, and a good time was had by all. We really LOVED our driver. He went above and beyond and took very good care of us.

Thank you!”

“Dear Tour-Rific Team,

The Boys Choir had a fabulous weekend at the Dixie Dude Ranch. It continues to be our very favorite trip. We lucked into beautiful weather throughout. As usual the staff of the ranch was amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We had extremely happy families as we got back in last night.

Our bus driver, by the way, was top notch. Polite, on time and extremely helpful! We liked him a lot!

Attached is a picture of our group at the lodge.

Thanks again for helping us take such great trips!”

“Hi Sandi, and Tour-Rific Team,

Our trip to Orlando went very, very smoothly. Parents were complimenting me that the trip was so well planned and executed. I thanked them and told them it was actually largely thanks to having a professional travel agency help us throughout the whole process. We will definitely be keeping you in mind for our next trip.

All the best, thank you,”
