"Classic Club’s Canadian Maritime Magic tour was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid and Ted Nelson reassurance that our deposits were safe and waiting for this tour to commence was so reassuring during these times. Once we got back on track with planning for a 2021 departure Ted was very proactive in knowing what to expect and how to navigate all of the extra forms that each province required. We even shared a Zoom meeting and he walked me through each step that was needing completed. From start to finish Hospitality Tours comes through with a great product that has the personal touch around every corner."

"We had a wonderful fall trip to New York and the Hudson River Valley as planned by Ted Nelson of Hospitality Tours. We visited so many places in just 6 days, with everything being timed out perfectly. Our tour guide was a local resident and really enhanced our trip with all of her knowledge. Our hotels were great, the meals were wonderful, and I truly feel that each of our guests felt like they absolutely got their money’s worth and more. Ted checked in with us along the way making sure everything was going just right, and it was nice knowing that we could reach out to him if needed for anything on this trip. I would give this trip experience a 5 Star Rating!"

"I met Ted Nelson through our HCI convention, and I just knew that he was the only one I was going to book my bucket list trip to New York with. With this being my first big trip leading a group, he gave me all the confidence in the world and was there to hold my hand through it all. Even when one of my members had to make an emergency visit to the hospital and we were an hour and a half away from our hotel and the rest of the group. He made sure the rest of the group was able to proceed with the trip and that he was able to get us back to our group - he was the knight in shining armor making it happen.
It really does make it so easy (as a club director) when a trip like this is such a great experience for our members. Thank you again for making my once in a lifetime memory to New York a reality. You are awesome and I can’t wait to book my next bucket list trip with you."

"Our recent trip to Cape Cod with Hospitality Tours was an all-around great experience. From the group leader perspective, Ted Nelson was a joy to work with. He was flexible and accommodating as we put the trip together, with cancellations leading up to the departure and while on tour when weather forced some changes. He made things appear seamless. The itinerary was well-rounded and Ted proved to be an exceptional tour manager and tour guide. We look forward to future trips with Hospitality Tours!"

"As a bank club director and part of Heritage Clubs International, I chose Ted Nelson with Hospitality Tours to help us plan a trip to Virginia Beach, Norfolk and the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Our trip was scheduled for April of 2020. Due to Covid, things began to abruptly shut down. Ted worked diligently behind the scenes and kept in touch with me, so our travelers knew what their options were. Our travelers learned they could get a 100% cash refund or they could stay registered for April 2021 and keep the guaranteed price. Our travelers were thrilled in getting to travel again one year later. Each traveler had been vaccinated and understood that masks would still be required in many places. From beginning to end, our travelers were so happy to be able to travel. Ted and our HCI partners from Virginia Beach and Norfolk had done a wonderful job lining up a great itinerary for us. The upgraded hotel gave us a beautiful sunrise view each morning and that in itself was worth the trip right there. I would highly recommend traveling with Hospitality Tours."

"We have enjoyed working with Hospitality Tours for many years. Our most recent trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto was spectacular. Ted is easy to work with and provided a great customized tour for my group. Our guide was local and provided a most memorable experience for everyone."
Becky Custer, Griffin, GA
"Hospitality Tours is a great company to work with. I was able to work with Ted from the beginning for our trip to New York. We got an added bonus of having Ted as our Guide in New York City, he was very knowledgeable and we had a fantastic trip!!"
Lisa Thompson, Wamego, KS
"Ted makes it easy to network with other banks because of the invoicing and gives a price break based on total number of customers (the combination from both banks) for the entire trip, and not just what each bank has traveling."
Cindy Blaine, Traer, IA
"Hospitality Tours has custom designed itineraries that have met the travel dreams of my club members while meeting the logistical challenges I face with multitude club locations and limited airport access.
