We had a wonderful trip and Melissa and I again want to thank Dave Sinkykin and Michael Kenney for making a great trip even better. We will definitely use Defined Destinations again.
By David T for KFAN'S DAVE SINKYKIN - LONDON GETAWAY on 20 Oct, 2022
Probably wouldn’t travel with Defined Destinations again. We wasted a day sitting in an overheated bus in London traffic. Bus couldn’t turn off the heat, we missed site seeing opportunities including lunch. Basically had no access to food or water from a breakfast of yogurt and biscotti on the plane until arriving at our hotel after 6pm. Then finding out that half of the group traveled non-stop to London and had a full day of site seeing getting on and off the bus to see numerous sites. Very disappointed with the first day!

This was a fantastic trip!! From the minute we signed up to the day of departure, everything was organized. We were all informed and could easily get ahold of Michael, if needed. I loved the fact we had adventures planned the minute we landed so we could take in as much of London as possible! The KFAN guys were awesome and tons of laughs were had! We made friends within the group, which added to our memories! Thanks for your attention to detail, organization and hard work, Michael and Patty!
