Customer Testimonials

Amazing Italy Vacation

We had a terrific time in Italy. Thank you for all of your help. The tour director was amazing. He was a wealth of knowledge and taught us a lot about Italy. The tour itself was extremely organized. We went from one thing to the next like magic. It was perfect. I liked this tour because we had organized tours planned and we had time to explore on our own. We met a lot of nice people and leaned a lot about Italy.

Ireland Dream Vacation

We can’t thank you enough for meeting with us on such short notice at Panera that Sunday morning to talk to us about your Ireland tours! Answering all our question, as newbies in the traveling world!, with such excitement for us and not getting upset as we all interrupted each other. However, I believe Marie and I were sold on doing a tour once we heard you explain all our luggage would be carried the tour company and not by us!! It just took one stare to each other to know we were sold! It was so much more than what we expected and could have hoped for. We will definitely call you when we are ready to travel again.
Debbie, S. Rochester, NY

Hawaii - Retirement Trip

Hi Dan, This has been the best vacation ever. Thank you so much for putting us with Globus. Our tour guide was great and helped us out so much. We did get to go zip lining (and I survived). We met some great people who we are going to keep in touch with. I also want to compliment you! We never had a problem. Your suggestion to prepay gratuities made things so easy. We had so much information about everything from you then other people had. Their travel agents never told them anything about things like that. A couple had to call home for someone to send a pic of their Covid vaccine cards because they didn’t know that they needed them. You are the best! Thank you.

10-Star Ireland Vacation

I would like to thank Dan Meister for putting together one of my most memorable family vacations. Our trip to Ireland went perfectly because of his hard work and dedication, and that is difficult to do with a very LOUD family of 16! From his prompt email reminders with our itinerary already set to the complimentary backpacks filled with maps, suggestions, guides, and traveling reminders, he took away all the stress and did a fantastic job. If I could give him 10 stars, I would!
Sarha M, Coconut Creek, FL

California and Hawaii Fabulous Trip

Dream Family Cruise Vacation

Thank you very much for helping us book a dream cruise vacation for our family. We all had the best time and the ship, itinerary and experience was exactly what we were looking for. We have all decided we want to continue to be cruisers and see more parts of the world. We will definitely be in contact for future trips.

Family Trip to Ireland

I want to thank you personally for all the incredible work you put into our family trip to Ireland. It truly was a trip to remember with many memories. I appreciate all the constant contact and updates on our itinerary. We loved having the backpacks and all the goodies inside which were used and so very helpful! Thank you again for helping me with my insurance claim. Weather can be a pain in the neck and I’m so glad that I’m home! Thank you again for orchestrating an incredible trip of a lifetime for our family

Great Family Vacation in Ireland

Germany and Austria

We called Dan out of the blue one day to put together a trip to Germany and Austria for us, as our daughter was going to be in Salzburg for a month. He responded promptly, designed a trip for us, and guided us through the entire process. And he absolutely nailed it. We had never been to Europe before, but we will be back. And Dan will be the one to put it together. Can't recommend him highly enough!
John, G, Boynton Beach, FL

Yellowstone and Mt. Rushmore Road Trip

Originally, Dan found me and my wife the perfect European river cruise but Covid struck and our vacation was cancelled. Shortly thereafter, on a whim, we challenged Dan to come up with a "fly and drive" vacation for us in the U.S. Dan designed a spectacular 11 day vacation that took us through some of the most breathtaking places in the wild west that included Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Utah. We visited Mt. Rushmore, Cody, WY, Badlands National Park, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Salt Lake City, Devil's Post Pile National Monument, and so much more on this custom trip. Dan personally created the itinerary while having the hurdle of navigating quarantine restrictions. Cannot commend Dan enough for all his hard work and will gladly book through him again
Bruce, C, Delray Beach, FL

California Road Trip

Dan Meister created and put together an amazing trip for us in California! He knew what we were looking for in a trip because he listened to what we really wanted in a vacation. He really knows CA well and recommended personal stops, attractions and experiences from his first hand experience that really enhanced our trip. I highly recommend him and his group due to his experience and expertise on traveling over many years. 1

Group Trip to Europe

We used Meister Meetings and Travel recently for a trip to Italy.. We were a group of 5 women and their daughters, a total of 10 of us. Most had never been out of the country. Dan gave us multiple choices of Italy Tours so we could get the MOST out of our visit. He did a wonderful job with our group, he was available anytime for any questions we had. He held a planning meeting for us to advise us on travel gear, and tips to keep us safe with our girls... Thank you Dan for memories of a lifetime...
Donna, R, Delray Beach, FL

First time to Europe

Thank you so much Dan for making our recent London/Paris adventure a trip of a lifetime. Reaching out to you for help is one of the best calls I have made. Since Connie and I had never been to the UK or Europe, having you arrange all the travel and living accommodations, along with your suggestions of things to do, made the difference. As you know, we covered some ground while we were there, so there were a lot of T's to be crossed and I's to be dotted. You nailed it Big Dan. Rest assured I will be singing your praises to all who will listen and I'll be reaching out to you again for our next adventure. Take care. Best Regards, Don & Connie Sullivan

Arguably the Catalyst for My Wedding
My (now) husband and I booked an Alaskan cruise with Dan in the summer/fall of 2014. He did such an amazing job that we decided to make that trip our honeymoon, and planned the wedding around that cruise! No question was too trivial, no detail left to chance. Dan thoroughly communicates with his customers, and his follow through is excellent. I have, and continue to, recommend Dan without reservation.
