River Cruise,Destination Weddings,Europe Specialis

My love for travel and adventure started as an exchange student in High School.

Most people believe that an amazing vacation is out of their reach, it's not!

With over 12 years of professional/personal travel experience and considerable knowledge in planning amazing and unforgettable vacations. I can make your dream vacation or destination wedding a reality, most trips can be booked with a low deposit and you can make interest free payments, it's that simple.

Having had the opportunity to visit many of the destinations I specialize in it has allowed me to experience firsthand what these amazing places have to offer you, my client. It is my honor to book your special getaway.

 I take great pride in my research and will work until your dreams and desires are met.

Continuing my education both by adding to my travel experience and by participating in certification programs offered by tourism boards, tour operators, and cruise lines. My education in the travel industry truly never stops.

We are a full-service travel agency specializing in all-inclusive resort travel to the Caribbean, Mexico Central America, and Europe. We also specialize in Destination Weddings, Religious, Family Reunions, Cruises, Adventure Travel, and Disney cruises.

River cruises are now my new favorite. I am loving the sites and history of Europe. The wine and food tours are excellent, and the history is simply awe-inspiring. I can't get enough of the Castles.

Vacations ARE NOT  a "One size fits all" I can customize your vacation to fit YOUR personal needs and budget. Your time is valuable don't waste it on endless internet searches that leave your head spinning let my knowledge and expertise save you time and money. Work with someone who really cares about every aspect of your trip, from transfers, trains, hotels, excursions etc...Your friendly professional, travel expert is only a phone call away!             Carpe Diem 

 

Everything was perfect. I highly recommend. -Ashle

Casa deCampos Destination Wedding

I would like to say a HUGE shout out to Somerset Tours & Travel, owner Kathleen Scallon. She was very helpful and knowledgeable and found my son a great vacation The next day I learned her agency burned to the ground. My heart sank for this kind woman. Just when you think all is lost, destroyed. Kathleen contacts you and tells you NOT to WORRY. In her struggles of losing her building, she came through. Kathleen Scallon does not need the building to define what a dedicated ethical travel agent she is. She still went above and beyond to make the experience everything that you could ask for. If you need a vacation! Please, take my suggestion and give Somerset Tours & Travel a call. Even in her darkest days, she took care of her clients.

Unexpected Wild Adventure

Reviewed By Anita and Phillip Miranda - Westport,Ma 02790 | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
Traveling with 3 boys and a daughter my husband and I was a bit nervous where to take our family for vacation. My daughter wanted horseback riding and the boys wanted hiking and ATVs. I had no idea where to take this bunch. After days of researching I gave up and a friend told me about Somerset Tours & Travel. Wow, one visit and we were on our way to some great adventures in Costa Rica. The kids are still talking about it. I am happy the Agency is back. I wish them the very best and plan on visiting very soon
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:

An unforgettable last minute getaway

Reviewed By Alison Tripp - East Freetown, Ma | Traveled to Mexico
Kathleen was awesome to work with! In April, 2016, right after her office burned to ashes it was our 25th wedding anniversary and we wanted to celebrate at an all inclusive in Mexico. We reached out to Travel Leaders and were very fortunate and happy to be connected with Kathleen. She listened to what we wanted our getaway to include and she was very thorough in fulfilling our dream trip. Even during this devastating time in her life. It was an unforgettable adventure! Everything was perfect thanks to Kathleen! In fact, we're working with her on putting together our next vacation! This time with our family.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:
Thank you. I cant believe I was still able to work at that time as the fire deeply effected me. I'm thrilled I was able to accommodate you and make your dream come true. I so love what I do, making certain my clients get everything they dream of is truly my passion. It's so funny, my husband says I get high helping clients achieve their ultimate vacation as I work around the clock to assure everything is as perfect as can be. I take your vacation very personally. Your VACATION is OUR Business"

Just what the Dr ordered

Reviewed By Rob and Carol - North Dighton, Ma | Traveled to Barbados ~ Caribbean
Kate’s eagerness to please.. the only reason I gave her a 4 str is because it took her a few days to get back to us and we were very excited. Kathleen did her job, I understand she had just reopened however, Carol,and I was overly excited to get this booked. She always had a smile and grated us like family. We feel very comfortable with her at home and on vacation
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:
Thank you, LOL, yes, I do take my time researching as I want the best for my clients. I will never just book a trip for the sake of a booking. Your vacation is personal to me, I want my clients to have the best available. I research for value, safety, promotions, flight time and more than you can imagine. I am happy to say everyone is always thrilled at the end!

The most beautiful trip of our life

Reviewed By Bob and Lorraine - Bridgewater. Ma | Traveled to Rhine River ~ On the River ~ At Sea
Very nice, funny and honest to a fault. Kate made sure my wife and I received the best value for our budget.
We took an All Inclusive Tauck River Cruise and Kate made all our fears flying to Europe go away.
The trip was beyond amazing and we are today planning a River Cruise for our whole family. The Castles on the Rhine are unbielievly beautiful. We felt as if we were in a fairytale. I recommend Kate to all our friends young and old.
The best part of working with Kate is she treated us like family, nothing was good enough.The worse part is the anticipation of waiting for our finished itineraries.
Kate takes her time to ensure everything is exactly as we plan, even though that's not a bad thing we were so excited to get that finished work on our hands.
We always look forward to meeting with Kate and wish her much success in her new office.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:
Thank You so much for this beautiful review. It is my pleasure working with easy going kind clients. Your excitement and desire to research history inspires me, Thank You-Kate

Our Romantic overdue vacation

Reviewed By Maggie and Charlie Cotali Dipip - Bristol, R.I. | Traveled to Aruba ~ Netherlands Antilles ~ Caribbean
Romantic, relaxing, fun and exciting, I have traveled all over the world as a child, although it has been 10 years since my last vacation. WOW has the world of travel changed! I feel blessed Kathleen was recommended to us, she took the extra time to help us with our passports, find the perfect resort, exactly what we imagined. Most important, she eased our anxiety navigating the airports in this crazy world. I will recommend Kate to all our friends. She's honest, funny and really cares for her clients. We felt very confident. We even called her 3 times while in Aruba and Kathleen helped us with each concern. The world needs more people like this young lady.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:
Thank you for being wonderful, easy going, thoughtful clients . It has been my pleasure working with you both and look forward to many more fun adventurers, -Kathleen.

An Anniversary we wont ever forget

Reviewed By Adam and Susan Andrade - Rehoboth, Ma | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
During the move to her new office, Kathleen still took the time to make sure our flights were on time and my wife and I sat together. The resort she recommended was exactly as she said, We stood at the Hyatt Zilara in Jamaica. Kathleen had a private driver waiting for us to take us to the resort. She is so thoughtful, kind and does more than she should.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Dear Adam and Susan, It was my pleasure to help plan your Anniversary. I believe we all should cherish our time as life goes by way to fast. The Hyatt Zilara is a wonderful resort, I knew you would love it. Clients like you both make my job very special, Thank you- Kathleen Scallon

A delightful Travels Agent, a perfectly planned va

Kathleen was very patient with me. This cruise was the first cruise without my wife of 65 years. Kathleen took the time to make sure all my needs we taken cared of from the ride to the airport to my transfers to the dock. The kindness she showed me, even working after hours and hand delivering my travel documents was so thoughtful. I have never been treated in such a way, she made me feel special and very confident. My cruise was everything and more. I recommend this young lady to all my friends. She is truly a gem.

Planes Trans and automobiles

Reviewed By Mark and Amanda - Assonet, Ma | Traveled to Europe
Kathleen was amazing. Our trip through Spain, France and ending in Italy was perfect. From our transfers she made us feel like a King and Queen with a Limo waiting for us at every airport. Her detailed itinerary felt as thou she was right there along side of us. I now she worked hard on our trip becasue we went to some remote places never thinking we would have the time of our life meeting extraordinary people staying in such beautiful Hotels. Kathleen did not miss a beat. Trains, Planes and automobiles. I highly recommend this beautiful lady with the patience of a saint to all my friends and family. Mark and Amanda Lassard

Relaxing catered Tour

Reviewed By Henry, aka Doc - Barington,RI | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Nice office, the staff treats you like a family member visiting. They offered me and my husband Tea and cookies. The interview was very thorough and comfortable. The hours vary so its best to make an appointment. Our trip went without a glitch, the only thing I didnt like was it took longer than I expected, but Kathleen reassured me her research takes time and she doesn't book just anything to make a sale. I would recommend Somerset Tours to my friends, my wife has disabilities, everything was wonderful that is enough for me. She truly cares about her customers..
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Kathleen Scallon responded:
Thank you for your kind review. I do take lots of time researching. My goal to book you the vacation of your dreams. (Sometimes my research is longer than most people like, but it gives them the very best in value and safety) We are certified in Special Needs Travel so making sure your wife received everything she needed was something we are accustomed to. I am beyond thrilled your vacation was wonderful, that is why I do what I do. Being part of my clients best memories is PRICELESS!

Kathleen and the staff at Somerset Tours and Travel are kind and thoughtful. My husband was ill and couldn’t drive to the office for our final documents so what do they do?
