I know if it wasn’t for Mel we would never have received any of the benefits that we were promised from NCL. I had a group of 36 plus we had 6 other people that were unofficially part of the group which meant 42 people were initially told that we didn’t even have a dinning room reservation for the group by NCL on board staff. In fact the first night out of Boston we all had to fend for ourselves for dinner since there was no reservation put in for a group this large.
I know that Mel requested a standing reservation in one of the main dinning rooms every night for the group. I would like to give you a little background on this whole fiasco. I started out over a year before the cruise working directly with NCL it got so bad that I finally called Mel and asked for his help. Mel didn’t hesitate to take over for me and couldn’t have been better to work with.
I regret that I didn’t originally talk to Mel and get his input on the best way to plan this family cruise. Since then I have just completed a day trip to Ogunquit with a group of 24 ladies and everything was absolutely perfect. Mel is the first one I will go to whenever I am planning any travel from now on.
I just want to thank you for one of the best trips I have been on….the trip to Ogunquit…Jake was the greatest as was Norm the bus driver…the play was superb, the hotel was wonderful and the restaurants were the best……you did it again….have never been disappointed in your trips
We did not expect to see so many things in Newport as well as learn so much about this city. I never realized that Newport has wineries or farms. Thanks for letting us stop so often to take pictures.
We have been to Newport many times but never in Dec. When we only wanted to visit one mansion instead of two. Our guide made a stop at Sweet Berry farms and the Topiary Gardens. The buffet with the lobster was one of the best meals I have had on any tour. We were amazed that a 11/2 lb lobster was included in this tour when the price was so low. We have been to Newport in the past, now we have seen Newport What a perfect way to spend a day with friends.
What a wonderful tour I had through Tye’s Tours. Mel Tye was the tour director, and he did a fantastic job informing us all about Newport, RI. He provided such historic and interesting information about this city and was friendly, courteous and fun to be with. We saw all of the areas in Newport and did things like wine tasting which made this tour even better than I expected.
Although it was just me and one other person signed up for this tour, Mel did not cancel it. Instead he gave us a private tour and even picked us up at my house. I will definitely continue to do business with Tye’s Tours. Thank you for a great day, Mel.
Just a short note to let you know how much Ralph and I enjoyed the trip to New York. While we thought we were in for something good this turned out to surpass every expectation. A trip with so few people could turn into disaster, but this one turned out to be one of the best we’ve ever taken.
Thank you so much!
We really enjoyed the Florida Trip that you planned for us. Everything went as scheduled and was perfect. BUT too cold down there, never took off the sweater.
It’s hard to find “bus tours” I went crazy searching the internet, till I stumbled upon yours. I’m so thrilled.
Just a quick note to let you know that the Winter Carnival in Quebec tour was fabulous. Great job in arranging this wonderful trip. We all had such a great time, and Bill was a terrific tour director. Looking forward to another tour that I will definitely sign up with your tour agency. I’ll keep looking on your website.
We arrived in Merrimack NH for a family gathering and the front desk of our hotel directed us to Tye’s Tours for local sightseeing. We hit the jackpot on this one! Our driver/ guide picked the four of us right on time and spent the entire day with us. There were only four of us and we had a 12 passenger Mercedes Sprinter to ourselves. The limo bus was ideal for enjoying the fall colors in the White Mountains.
We were up high and stopped often for photos. We could easily have been charged much more then we paid for this all day excursion and felt Tye’s Tours provided great value. In the UK we would have paid a great deal more for a private driver guide on an all day tour. Our guide Mel, amazed us with his knowledge and legends of the Mountains. We asked for a covered bridge photo stop, and we were at a perfect location in minutes.
We asked for an easy walk and were at trailhead to a secluded lake. Our guide seemed to know what we wanted before we asked. His stories kept us laughing and entertained. When we returned to Merrimack we asked for dinner suggestions for a reasonably priced lobster meal, our guide volunteered to take us to the restaurant and wait for us at no additional charge. Would highly recommend this company to others. The only thing that would have made the day better was seeing a moose or a bear.”
Mel, Mel, Mel!
What can I say? I had no idea what to expect, but what we got, was a great trip and a lot of laughs! Everything was fun and you will definitely see us on another tour in the future.
Thanks for all you did to make a short trip so much fun!”
