Fantastic Trip!

Reviewed By Annie - Darien, CT | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Working with John was a very easy wonderful experience. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and willing to work within my budgetary needs. He never was pushy...He made me feel very comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. He was great about arranging transportation to and from the hotel as well and great at recommending excursions for us to do while on vacation. I have worked with him on several trips and each time it is with ease and comfort. I highly recommend working with John. He takes the stress out of planning an important trip for you and your family!

Peru was an eye opener!

Reviewed By Liz K - Cheshire, CT | Traveled to Machu Picchu ~ Peru ~ South America
John takes the time to understand your travel needs. He's not simply an "order taker". Once he got to know my preferences he was able to make recommendations about where to go and sent us to places like Iceland, Costa Rica and Peru, long before any of these destinations had become popular venues. I have recommended Adler travel to a number of friends and family members and they've all been delighted with his expertise and attentiveness.

Consistent and knowledgeable agent

Reviewed By Ray - Tokyo, Japan | Traveled to Nepal ~ Central Asia
I have worked with John over many years now, both while I was in the US and now living abroad. He consistently provides top service, advice, and helps me to find and book the trip. My most recent trip required getting things sent to me in Japan prior to my departure, and John ensured it was taken care of. If he can't find the best deal, he will suggest where to get it. In my case, sometimes it is cheaper for me to book the airfare from overseas, but I still check with him for the best routes, etc.

Paris Just for Us

Reviewed By Pam and Paul - Hamden, CT | Traveled to France ~ Europe
We have used John Weinstein as our travel agent for over 15 years. He has a wealth of information, and has given us amazing advice on places to visit. John cares about his clients and makes everyone feel at ease. He spends time discussing each persons interests and helps them get the most travel for their budget. Many of John's suggestions have become my most favorite of travel memories. Sometimes, the most interesting places are just a little off the beaten path. John has introduced us to some of the most interesting cities, museums, hotels and restaurants. He customizes each trip with tips based on the interests of his clients. Even when cruising, John helps us to select the most exciting shore excursions. Every trip booked with John, has lead to experiences we might have missed without his expertise. We highly recommended planning your next trip with John.

All Good

Reviewed By Debra - New Haven, CT | Traveled to Norway ~ Europe
Me and my entire family have worked with John for many years. Every trip has been spectacular and without glitch. Recently we booked a cruise but decided to book the transport back to the airport through the cruise line. What a mistake. To make a long story short, we were able to contact John who then arranged transport for us. I would never use anyone else for my trips. He’s great. Always has been.

Awesome trip!

Reviewed By B. Ritt - Meriden, Ct | Traveled to Prague ~ Czech Republic ~ Europe
Recently visited Central Europe, including Krakow, Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Budapest. This trip was awesome and the hotels were spectacular. John always seems to find these wonderful boutique hotels with the best service everytime we travel. He gave us so much detail on restaurants to eat at and shows to see. He made arrangements for us with Jana, a private tour, who took us to places around town that we never would have thought to visit. John is so friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I can't imagine planning a trip without his help.

Adler Travel gets it right!!

Reviewed By Jay - BRYN MAWR | Traveled to Mexico City ~ Mexico D.F. ~ Mexico
Over the past 20+ years, John has been handling all of my travel. I have also recommended his services to others and 20 years later, they are still his clients. John and his team have been everywhere, so when they give you a recommendation, you know it's going to be good.

Over the years, I have traveled throughout Central and South America as well as many of the Caribbean Islands and a little bit of Europe. John has never steered me wrong. We are alway happy with the accommodations, the suggested places to see and restaurants to eat. My last trip to Mexico City, I told him I wanted seafood and he told me about the best shrimp in Mexico. He was not wrong!

If you are currently going online to make your travel plans, you are missing the bigger picture. Travel is something too enjoy so you should let a professional handle it for you.

I will continue to use John and Adler Travel, and will continue to recommend all of my friends. Thanks John!!

The best trips of our lives

Reviewed By June - north haven | Traveled to Paris ~ France ~ Europe
John has been our travel agent for well over 25 years. I rely on him for every aspect of our trips. He is unique in the fact that he gets to know his clients likes and dislikes and has never been wrong on a recommendation. He even took the time to email me articles on restaurants in Paris because he knew fine food has always been an important part of our trips. I have counted on his expertise for every trip. As we became senior citizens, john adjusted recommendation to meet our changing needs. Did I forget to mention that when you consider your travel agent as "family," you know they have done a good job!

The best trips of our lives!

Reviewed By J. Randal - Madison, CT | Traveled to Bordeaux ~ France ~ Europe
John has helped us with so many wonderful trips over the past 10 years or so. Last year, we went to the South of France, which included 3 nights in the Bordeaux Region with a private guide who took us to some of our favorite wineries where we sampled excellent wine. John also had our guide take us to a wine school, the Maison Du Vin De Saint Emilion, where we learned the rich history of vine growing and grape harvesting.
The year before John made our plans for Peru and Machu Picchu. He somehow convinced us to go on a river rafting day tour from Cusco which ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. So many amazing memories.
