What They're Saying About Sims Family Tours & Travel
Andie contacted us shortly after Christmas.  Her mother and father had gifted her and her room mate a cruise of their choice.  We went over a few choices from Galveston, and settled on the Carnival Dream doing a 5 night Western Caribbean sailing.

We booked Andie and her room mate in a Category 4G inside stateroom.  The price difference between the lowest category and the 4G just made sense for the small difference with the promotion we found for them.

We recommended that she look at ShoreTrips.com for her shore excursions and she found Fun on the Playa .... with Lunch!

We reminded her to do her Online Checkin, along with mailing her cruise documents and laminated luggage tags prior to her cruise.  The COVID-19 virus was in its infancy during this time, and we kept them advised of the additional onboard credit Carnival was offering for continuing to cruise or their options if they wanted to cancel.

 "I will always book cruises through Sims Family Tours & Travel in the future! They made booking so easy and simple, with barely any effort on my part. They took care of as many things as possible for me and my cruise and were always... " -- Andie O

Michelle and a group she camps with came to us in the fall of 2018 with the idea of doing a group cruise for the seasonal summer campers. 

They wanted a 7 night sailing that was drivable or an easy flight from Ohio, so we settled on the Carnival Legend sailing on January 12, 2020 from Tampa

Over the course of 16 months:

  • We sent out email newsletters
  • We booked the group's dining working with the onboard ship staff and their availability of tables
  • We did our best based on the ship's inventory to place rooms close together
  • We held a cruise night to go over details and questions
  • We arranged a Day Trip for the group to El Cid la Ceiba All Inclusive Resort with Resort for a Day
"Thank you Sims Family Tours & Travel for helping us book an awesome cruise on Carnival Legend. The 20 of us had an amazing time they took very good care of all of us!" -- Michelle M
April and her husband wanted to explore the Canadian Rockies by train with another couple.  They had a budget and a framework of places they wanted to visit.

We suggested to work with Rocky Mountaineer, whom we had worked with before.  We met with Don and April numerous times to fine tune which package they would like, explaining the differences and making calls to RMV to answer their questions that we couldn't answer with 100% certainty.

We booked them on the 2019 Canadian Rockies Circle Tour from Vancouver plus cross referenced their bookings.

During our work with them, we noticed a typo on their itinerary and invoice from RMV. We negotiated with the supplier to get them Gold Leaf Service throughout.

"Thank you for a trip of a lifetime. Don, Bob, Fran and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves on the Rockie Mountain Railways tour of the Canadian Rockies. We saw things we would never have seen on our own. Your care and dedication to our trip was beyond measure. We truly appreciate all you did to make our trip such a success and so enjoyable. I'd go again in a heartbeat!" -- April G


 "Our vacation was better than we could have imagined. Small details were covered and every day was better than the next. , , Thank you for your excellent work!"  -- Bob R

John and Lynne called in the fall of 2018 wanting to take his extended family on an Alaskan Cruise Tour.  10 people in all, with two of the guests having special needs.

We came together and agreed on Royal Caribbean and their Alaskan CruiseTour sailing one way from Vancouver.

We worked very closely with Lynne on the exact needs of their sons alongside of RCCL's special needs department.  We made arrangements to have them accept medical supplies before they departed.

Once their land itinerary got confirmed, we worked with the hotels to make sure they could receive dialysis deliveries and double checked all delivery addresses.

We also booked their pre/post hotels and flights to/from Pittsburgh.   We worked with United Airlines to make sure all legs of their flights were accommodating for our clients.

"Thanks again for all your help. I know our situation was more involved than most vacationers but you truly went above and beyond to make our vacation wonderful. May God bless you and your wife both" -- Lynne & John M
    "Bob and Connie, Thank you so much for always taking such great care of us! It makes sailing so easy to have everything organized, from the billing to the boarding pass, luggage tags, etc. And not to mention our Welcome Aboard goodies. You're the best!!" -- Linda W
    "My wife and I have been using Bob and Connie for our vacations for about 10 years now. We ran across them on Ebay when our local travel agent retired. We could not ask for any one better then these guys have been. They take the time and effort to make sure we are informed and cared for all the way thru our cruises start to finish. Will never go any place else for our travels. Thanks guys for all you do for us."  -- Glen and Vickie W
    "This is the second time we have used the Sims Travel agency. As usual everything ran smoothly. If I had a question, Bob or Connie would return my email that day and usually within an hour. I would not hesitate to use them for all future vacations." -- Barbara W
    "Bob and Connie helped us SO much, with our vacation!! It's so nice to let someone else get all the details together and then even respond to emails while we were on our trip. Bob was willing to send me the information needed after my mom's purse was stolen in Cancun, luckily we did have her passport! I would recommend Sims Family Travel to everyone!!" -- Antje K
