Couldn’t have done it without you, Bruce

We were so pleased with the service from BishopTrips. In January, Bruce helped us put together a two week multi-generation family trip to Tampa. We flew in and out at various times and spots. The itinerary and flights with Delta were flawless. We rented (with Bruce’s advice) a house in Indian Rocks Beach and were thrilled with it. (The only way to manage a crowd of adult children!) Then in April, we called upon Bruce to arrange for guests to travel to our daughter’s (off resort) wedding in Cuba. This involved arranging travelers from ages 6 to 78 from all across Canada and staying in a local resort for a week. Couldn’t have been smoother. We’re so lucky to have this knowledgeable professional to step up for us. Highly recommend him!

3 days in Nova Scotia

My Granddaughter and I were planning a quick trip to Nova Scotia. I was quite intimidated to be driving, map reading and not missing any sights. We were so happy to have found Bruce. He took all the stress out of our trip. He knew interesting stops and great restaurants. He was also fun to travel with. Time spent in the car went fast, as he had lots of travel stories we enjoyed. Although it was an expensive trip, it was worth it to not have any worries. – Pat, Florida

Beyond Expectations

Bruce recommended The Pullman at Cayo Coco in Cuba. Cuba wasn’t on our radar at all. He didn’t disappoint. The resort was well beyond expectations, it was all we wanted for a vacation and more. We are looking forward to having him plan another trip in the future.

Ideal Locations

Bruce arranged the air travel, ground transportation and accommodations for our trip to Europe. The hotel he found for us in London was ideally-located, historic, spacious and beautiful. We could walk to all the sights from this location and enjoy returning to it at the end of the day. We stayed in Amsterdam one night before we met a river cruise. Bruce found us a hotel within easy walking distance of the ship’s docking location. Our trip was stress-free and thoroughly enjoyable.

Refined Relaxation

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation experience, from the time of booking, until our arrival home. Our beach front room and birthday cake upon arrival set the tone for the rest of the week. Thank you Bruce for your attention to detail.

Book with Bruce & Relax!

Our family travels every year and we’ve always done our own bookings on-line. After a chance encounter with Bruce Bishop, we decided to give him a try for our 2017 Family Vacation and found that he was the exact same price as the on-line companies BUT with MANY extras that would have cost us more AND he took all of the extra work off our shoulders. I had the added comfort on vacation of knowing that if there were any issues (which there weren’t) that Bruce was only an e-mail or call away. The attention to detail and sincere concern over our trip and enjoyment have won us over, and we have already used BishopTrips for another booking. His motto of “Tailored Travel” couldn’t be more exact!  – A & T, Yarmouth, NS

Jewels of Italy

My wife and I were booked by Bruce Bishop, to take the Jewels of Italy Tour, Oct 18, through Nov. 1, 2015. The flights, the tour, the accommodations, and the Tour Director, were absolutely first class. We had a wonderful time, and would recommend the trip to anyone of my friends. We made many new friends, and plan on keeping in touch with many of them. It was the trip we were looking forward to. Thank you Bruce!!!

Overall Excellent!

Bruce was easy-going, knowledgeable, and helpful from start to finish. His attention to our needs, thoughtful follow-ups, and emergency outreach (due to inclement weather situations) displayed above and beyond service. I’d readily recommend him, and already have!, to others in need of a good travel agent. Two Thumbs UP!

Worry free vacation

Our travel agent Bruce Bishop went above and beyond what an agent normally does. He invited us to his home prior to our departure with personalized tour packages prepared for us. He has been in contact with us upon our return. Because of Bruce and his knowledge of the travel industry we had an amazing trip exploring Italy.

Our bucket list trip

I mentioned to Bruce one day that I would like to travel to both England and Italy to meet relatives and do some genealogy research. He took to the task and before we knew it we were on our way to Scotland, England and Italy followed by a Transatlantic repositioning cruise from Rome to the States. We were especially impressed with his organizational skills and his attention to detail. This included handicapped access at most venues wherever possible. What a trip. Bruce took care of all the hotels, bus tours, train tickets and flights as well as the cruise. What a fantastic six weeks.

He planned our first trip

He planned our first trip to Nova Scotia Bruce planned my first trip to Nova Scotia. He was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. He has a wonderful understanding of Nova Scotia and knows the people and area around Annapolis Valley on a first name basis. I would have over extended but he gave us plenty of time for the all important ” people factor”. It was much more than just the beautiful scenery and great food. Thanks to Bruce.

Acadia tour

Our planned trip to the Yarmouth area fell apart when the tours offered in Trip Advisor did not come through. We contacted Bruce on very short notice via email (on a Holiday weekend when the office was closed) and he was able to get our small group of three on the Calvin d’Entremont tour,”A day by the sea”. Calvin’s tour far exceeded our expectations and we almost became natives by assimilating his wealth of knowledge. I doubt anyone could provide the depth and personal history that he shared with us. On our return to the hotel, I sought out Bruce Bishop to not only meet him, but to express our gratitude for his assistance. I was totally impressed with his warm reception and ability as a travel agent and this is [written by] a person who has traveled extensively and [is] not easily satisfied with both tours and agents. If you are planning a trip to this area, Nova Scotia, or anyone in the world, you should start here.

Nova Scotia Trip Planning

Bruce was tremendously helpful in helping us plan our trip to Nova Scotia. Living there he is, of course, very knowledgeable about the country, the sites to see, the places to eat, lodging, etc. He was extremely attentive to details and structured the trip around our desires, always taking the time to listen to our desires and requirements. He was kind enough to invite us to attend a special seafood dinner with him and a friend, followed by a tour of Yarmouth, something we hadn’t expected but greatly appreciated. I can’t imagine anyone could have done a better job. I would recommend him without reservation. Great Job!

Excellent Experience

Bruce was very accommodating, pays attention to detail, and is very organized. We had a vacation that required a lot of planning and changes to ensure we maximized what we were able to get out of our time away; and we were able to achieve our goals with the help of Bruce.

Bruce has the experience and contacts to put together any type of vacation and take away the headaches of planning on our own. Very appreciative of the work he did for us and we will use again when the opportunity arises.
