Testimonials

I have been using CTW for a number of years now, and I have never been disappointed in any of the trips that we have taken through Anne and Kevin.  There is always that little something extra that helps make their trips special.  Their staff is friendly, helpful and professional, and their guides are the best.  I have traveled both domestically and internationally through this company, and every trip has been wonderful.  I would highly recommend Cruises and Tours Worldwide.

I appreciate all of you so much. It is like talking with family. No, in my case, better than my family.

- Bank Club Director (We’ve withheld her name to protect her identity, but it’s too cute not to share.)

We had a fabulous time (in Ireland).  Sean was absolutely wonderful!!!!  LOVED, LOVED, LOVED him.  He took such good care of us……..and everyone was so happy with him.  Of course the best was when we stayed at Dromoland Castle Hotel……..everyone was so excited……..what a treat.  All the hotels were fantastic I thought.  Thank you for all your help……..all in all it was absolutely fantastic.  You are wonderful!!!  You and your staff are the BEST!!”

- Ann VanDyken, Citizens Tri County Bank

You and your staff are so wonderful to work with!  I told my boss I really wanted to use your company even though we had a lesser bid from another company because of the incredible job you all do. You are all so attentive to all of our needs and your response time is amazing!

- Melanie Lisk, First National Bank

Our bank group started using CTW when our PEER Group scheduled an all-inclusive stay to Jamaica with CTW. I was just positive none of our travelers would want this trip, so I scheduled a Western Caribbean Cruise with CTW. The two trips overlapped by a day and that would have been a problem, but the bank hired a coworker for the Club. Jamaica sold well as did the cruise. Angela went with the group to Jamaica and had a marvelous time. I took the group to New Orleans and the cruise and we had an outstanding time. Since those two trips, we have used CTW a lot. We did the Christmas Markets on the Danube and Italy, both fabulous, well organized adventures. We are now using CTW for our Mediterranean Cruise, Croatian Cruise and a small ship through the Panama Canal. Thank you  Anne, Jennifer, and Maryann.

We just arrived home from our New Orleans/7-Night Western Caribbean cruise and this trip couldn’t have been better…perfect location for our hotel (with easy access to Bourbon Street)… the city tour and the Cooking School were both highlights of our 2 days of Fun in New Orleans.  The guide was so informative and kept everyone’s interest throughout the tour.  The evening at the Cooking School was so much fun and we got to eat the results – YUMMY!!! The bus transfers were easy and having the same driver pick us up at the airport, staying with us for 2 days in New Orleans, and then picking us up at the pier on our arrival back from our cruise was greatly appreciated.  Plus I know that whoever I am working with on our tours booked with Cruises & Tours Worldwide are always on top of everything.  Again, thank you for helping me make my job a whole lot easier because I know when booking with Cruises and Tours Worldwide that our trips are going to exceed our customers’ expectations.  Until our next trip –

- Sheri McCoy, Nodaway Valley Bank

I have had great experience with them.  What I appreciate most is their ease in working together.  Trip accounting is so much better than it is when using a big company.  Also the information for the document meeting comes very organized, and they go the extra mile with regard to airline seating, etc. I would have no hesitation to recommend them.  I’ve used them for Alaska, Ireland, Caribbean Cruise, and in 2016 will have a Mediterranean Cruise and New England.

- Jean Jech, Home Federal Savings Bank

Speaking of “amazing,” Jennifer, you and the entire staff at CTW are amazing.  You all respond so quickly and go out of your way to answer questions and deal with issues if and when they arise.  I’ve worked with other companies with whom I have to request information multiple times before I get a response-even when I’m inquiring about possibly booking a trip, much less trying to get answers after a trip is booked.  I know how time-consuming special requests (air deviations, special diets, etc.) can be, but I never get a scowl when I ask someone in your office about those things.  It makes a HUGE difference in the professionalism and credibility of a company.  You ALL do a very fine job, and it’s appreciated!

- Julia Terwilleger, American Trust & Savings Bank

Cruises and Tours Worldwide is at the top of my list of tour operators for professionalism, attention to detail, good communication, and personalization of tours.  Contracts are clear and concise, brochures look great, and the entire team seems to genuinely care about the success of my trips.  They truly do set a standard of service for the industry.

- Lanise Blankenship, Central Bank of the Ozarks

A BIG THANK YOU to Dawn for putting this trip together and escorting it.  Everything was “smooth sailing” as usual with Cruises and Tours Worldwide!  Thank you to ALL who had a part in making this trip possible.  I always appreciate the professionalism on how everything is handled along with the quick responses…no matter who I email or call!  THANK YOU

- Brenda Eaton, Hawthorne Bank

Hi Anne,

When I planned the Italy Trip I had no idea what a wonderful experience it would be.  You surely did a “Fantastic” job making sure everyone was safe and having a great time.  I enjoyed Rome, but most of all the beautiful scenery on the way to the wineries.  You sure know how to pick “neat” and unusual places.

- Patsy Cantrell, Commerce Bank

When I describe a trip with Cruises and Tours Worldwide, I always say it’s “Upscale, perfectly planned and exceptional”. Anne’s escorts are extremely organized and detail oriented as well as being thoroughly likable people to travel with. I never have to worry about a thing with CTW in charge. I know the trip will be wonderful and memorable!

- Debbie Estey, Phelps County Bank

Cruises and Tours Worldwide is a first class tour company that I have worked with for several years. I met Anne Davis at a BankTravel conference and was impressed by her and the tours her company offered. We talked about several trips and decided on an Italy land tour. CTW worked very hard for that trip to make and added so many extra perks for our customers. It is one of my most memorable trips. Since that trip I have used CTW for a Christmas trip to New York City, a spring trip to Charleston and Savannah, several cruises to the Caribbean and a Canada and New England cruise. We are talking about more trips for the future and I look forward to working with Anne and the lovely ladies in her office. Every detail, air, hotels and meals are taken care of and I have not been disappointed in any trip they have done!

- Sandy Green, Franklin Synergy Bank

I have been using Cruises and Tours Worldwide for the 20 years that I have been a Senior Club director. They are very efficient and give us only the best restaurants, hotels and travel adventures. I would give them a 5 star rating!

- Jackie Parks, Liberty Bank

I met Anne Davis at Bank Travel several years ago. I was impressed with her less than pushy ways and since I was looking for another avenue of travel, I decided to give her a chance. I continue to feel the same way several trips and years later and have found her to be totally honest and trustworthy. The people that work for Cruises and Tours Worldwide are friendly and helpful and neither my bank travelers nor I have been disappointed with any trip planned and escorted by CTWW. I would and do recommend travel with Cruises and Tours Worldwide!

- Brenda Sykes, The Murray Bank

Dear Anne & Kevin,

We thought this was the perfect card to deliver these words of thanks for a beautiful Tuscany experience. You left “no stone unturned” and we were so proud to be able to share this trip with our JSB customers. We appreciate your attention to every detail as well as your camaraderie with our group members.

“Thank you” will hardly suffice for all you have done. Quite obviously, our customers love you —– and so do we!

- Jack & Suzie, Jacksonville Savings Bank

Hello MaryAnn, Katie and Anne:

The SeniorPartners trip to Washington DC, Williamsburg, and points in between, was wonderful!  We all had a great time!  Debbie was a fantastic tour director, our step-on guide in Washington DC was wonderful and our motor coach driver was excellent, too!

Thank you all so much for arranging this wonderful tour for us!

- Susan Stegenga, Commerce Bank

Cruises and Tours Worldwide’s staff takes care of us from the start of every trip, covering every detail and ensuring the bank and our guests of an outstanding vacation.

Some of my members’ most favorite trips have been with CTW. Our New York City trip is still considered to be the best ever offered by our club! Special thanks to CTW and especially Anne and Kevin for making all the magic happen.

- Linda Johnson, Triumph Bank

I always look forward to working with Cruises and Tours Worldwide as they provide the quality trips and service that I insist on for my bank travel club. Their experienced staff is there for you from the beginning to the end of the tour. I have, and will continue to recommend Cruises and Tours Worldwide to other bank travel club directors.

- Mary Ann Gelven, Director of Marketing, Legends Bank

I enjoy working with CTW as they are a polished, professional and well organized tour company! I can trust in them that even the smallest details will be handled accurately! They make each tour unique and “made to order.”
