David Forbes

Tulsa, Oklahoma Travel Agent

The Travel Group, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

River Cruise and Group Tour Specialist

Our Washington group in front of the White House
Our Washington group in front of the White House

I have been in the travel industry since 1973, both as an agent and an agency owner.  My wife and I started The Travel Group in 1989 and have operated it since then at different locations in south Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Since 1994 I have been organizing group tours to different locations in the North America and Europe.

We started with tours to New York City, primarily to see Broadway shows, just about the time The Lion King opened on Broadway, and for several years that show was on our schedule, as a consequence of which I have seen that show 16 times. And would see it again in a heartbeat.  We added Washington DC to our schedule in 1996, as well as Chicago and have done annual trips to those cities every year.  We also go to Nashville, Charleston, Las Vegas, as well as Canada, and have escorted a number of groups to Britain and to France.  I have taken groups on river cruises on virtually every river in Europe and love that form of travel more than anything.

I also plan and escort day trips for groups on deluxe motorcoach with departures at least once a month, both from our office in south Tulsa and from one or more of our travel club partners in the area.  There are so many exciting things to do and see within an easy drive of Tulsa that there is a nearly inexhaustable supply of festivals, events and destinations to offer our mostly senior travelers.

Trips planned by David always good.

Reviewed By NoneAnnWeaverL@yahoo.com - Tulsa, OK | Traveled to New York (Kennedy) ~ New York ~ USA
My rating for David Forbes is excellent. I have travelled with him several times and each time was perfect. His planning is wonderful and he keeps his clients well informed. On my last trip with David to New York my friend who I was travelling with had a heart attack. He and his wife, Sharon, handled everything beautifully. Getting us to the hospital, taking care of our luggage, coming to the hospital and making new reservations for us when we went home. We were so grateful to them and will not forget how well they took care of us. We would certainly travel with them again Many thanks David and Sharon. AnnLackey

We are so glad we went to Nashville!

Reviewed By Our Music City Trip! - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma | Traveled to Nashville ~ Tennessee ~ USA
My husband Ron and I have traveled a lot in the last ten years. We have gotten tired of all the planning required for our trips. The trip with the Travel Group was easy and all the reservations were taken care of for us. The bus was very comfortable and they made plenty of bathroom breaks. David and all the staff were very helpful and we really enjoyed our trip to Nashville.

Very Enjoyable in All Respects!

Reviewed By Mary B - Tulsa, OK | Traveled to Oklahoma City ~ Oklahoma ~ USA
I took 3 day trips in 2017, OKC, Crystal Bridges AR, and Claremore, and have signed up for 3 more in 2018. Since I don't drive on the highways, this is an affordable and enjoyable way for me to travel.

My friends and I travel in comfort, meet new travel companions, enjoy seeing the sights and having good meals.

David Forbes and everyone associated with the registering, greeting, and keeping us in line on the trips, has been very organized, friendly and respectful.

I highly recommend traveling with David Forbes!

I have taken the New York City tours twice and both were excellent and a great value price wise for all that is included. David and Sharon are great chaperones. The Times Square Hotel was amazing. The Broadway productions chosen, the Radio City Christmas show, and access to other tickets were the best. Also we had plenty of free time to explore NYC on our own.

Ready to go again!

Reviewed By Sue B - Stillwater, OK | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
My husband and I have participated in two different type of travel experiences with David. The first, a trip to NYC and then a day bus trip to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. It is apparent that David is a seasoned traveler and enjoys providing excellent travel experiences for his customers. The trips were well organized with a good balance of tour and personal time to enjoy the destination.

His company provides travel opportunities through varying tours which include day bus tours, trips to selected destinations within the US, and overseas. He and his staff are very personable, helpful, and will go the extra mile to make sure your trip is the best!

David is a man of integrity and I feel very comfortable letting him make the plans for travel, lodging, dining, and entertainment.

He is personable while traveling and also responds quickly to emails or phone calls. We look forward to working with him on future travel endeavors.

The best trips of our lives

Reviewed By Jo - Tulsa, OK | Traveled to Netherlands ~ Europe
We first met David on an escorted trip to NYC. As I said to David upon booking, "We want you to be responsible for us!" Sort of a joke, but not having to plan anything ourselves was a breath of fresh air. All details from handling luggage, transport, dining, activities were well planned. Having a step on guide for the coach tours throughout the boroughs was the most pleasant experience. The trip was incredible. In 2017, we sailed the Rhine River on AMA Waterways. David guided us through every aspect of this voyage, was always available to speak with, and fulfilled all of our requests flawlessly. It was indeed, the best trip of our lives! We will continue to work with David for his friendly expertise. I should point out that he also conducts great travel seminars. Bon voyage!
