To combine enjoyment of travel with congenial companions, an outstanding lecturer who brings to life the characters and events of the past.

To mitigate the disadvantages of travel with research and organisation, is to enhance life, and is worth more than rubies.

Travelling with Martin Randall Travel is always completely wonderful.

The food and wine outstanding and beyond expectations, access to private and privileged views, access to artefacts you would not get to see yourself, and an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, experienced and fun Lecturer.

There are three particular characteristics of Martin Randall Festivals.

The first is the choice of programme and the high quality of the performers; the second is meticulous attention to detail, with every aspect of the tour being worked out to ensure that it ran smoothly; the third is the calibre of the Martin Randall staff, who are both efficient and delightful.

Spectacular, well managed tour that we will never forget.

It was a deep experience and we always felt that MRT was in total control. We feel very fortunate to have taken this particular trip and look forward to more with you.

I loved it.

I found exactly what I had hoped for from the tour description, extraordinary people who could help me to see into the heart of a wonderful country and plan visits to fascinating places I didn’t and couldn’t know existed.

Everything works like clockwork.

We get more than we pay for in service and quality. There is never anything to worry about. MRT also seems to attract great people on their tours.

With MRT everything is so beautifully organised.

I get to see far more than I might on my own (and in greater comfort) and learn far more than I might from the most informative guide books.

I am a confirmed Martin Randall traveller for many reasons.

Excellent tours with a very high standard of information imparted by experienced and expert Lecturers, very good Tour Managers who are highly organised, excellent accommodation and meals, and a wonderful sense of being looked after.

Martin Randall Travel employ extraordinary guides that enrich your travelling experiences immensely, by providing the background to allow you to best appreciate what you're seeing.

Their Tour Managers smooth any problems with their attentiveness.

This is one aspect (of several) of travelling with Martin Randall Travel that leads me to continue to choose the company.

I would particularly like to commend the attention given to solo participants who were never overlooked or ignored.

These tours enable me to learn, do and experience more than I could ever hope to do as an independent traveller.

I can see the thought and care that has gone into preparing a varied and interesting itinerary supported by a highly professional Lecturer and Tour Manager.

There is no other tour on the market which gives so much.

Martin Randall Travel is exceptionally well organised, treats everyone as individuals, answers the telephone in person and delivers the widest range of cultural trips aimed at intelligent travellers.

I would just like to say how much my husband and I appreciate the quality of the tours we have done with you.

Interesting choices of topic and location, excellent lecturers and faultless organisation of both travel and accommodation. Martin Randall holidays are absolutely top of the range! Thank you! 

Our MRT holiday exceeded our expectations in every respect.

The international party gave a broad and interesting slant to our conversations, and we were suitably led by both Lecturer and local guide. We have had many memorable experiences on Martin Randall holidays, but you have just excelled yourselves again.
