      I had a great time. Food was delicious. I would have liked more time to shop at Peddlers Village

      The bus and the people at Getaway were great. Nice meeting John and very personable. The reason for the low rating is because the Tropicana and the long lines were ever you went. Recent changes with the casino was very confusing with limited help. It took over an hour to get our food. The show was OK. It appeared to me the tropicana is not doing well as the entire area were buses with seniors and lack of help especially at the reward center. A map of the lay out would have helped locating thing as we had to ask where everything was.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I will share your concerns with the Tropicana. It was a busier day due to the popularity of the show so there were more buses than usual. I will be sure to address these concerns. This helps make our trips as best as possible.

      We had a great time! The bus trip was seamless. Arrived on time, comfortable and had fun with games to win prizes. Got to spend time in the casinos, had a fabulous lunch completely paid for by the voucher, enjoyed a walk on the boardwalk and trip to the fudge shop. And last but not least, the show was phenomenal! So many out loud laughs and by the end we all were on our feet singing and dancing. Would highly recommend this trip.

      We had heard that this was the best presentation yet. We have seen several productions at Sight and Sound and I have to agree. This was just outstanding. Of course the food was great. The accommodations were great on the bus and at the restaurant. We look forward to being on another trip with Faith.

      A wonderful Radio City Music Hall experience, it has been over 15 years, since my last experience, this trip with Faith and GSG, was filled with HOLIDAY MAGIC...may 2024 be kind to us...terri...Teresa Finn

      We have been on numerous trips with Faith and they are always adventurous and well planned. This year started with the Kentucky Derby, Land and Cruise thru Alaska and the Mircle of Christmas in Lancaster Pa was a great way to wrap of the year. Can't wait for new adventures.
