  • Taber was friendly, consistent and patient. When we asked about numerous possibilities he outlined all possible scenarios. I hope to work with him in the future.
  • Nice job! Very pleased with GTP!
  • Taber Sullivan is Awesome!
  • Taber Sullivan is the Man! Very prompt, responsive and courteous!

My name is Lawrence Young. I am the band director at Booker T. Washington High School in Pensacola, FL. For the past 5 years our band program has been traveling exclusively with Taber Sullivan and Group Travel Planners (GTP). After our first trip with them to Orlando FL in 2010 we chose to only travel with them exclusively. The service and experiences has been top notch each and every time. GTP gives us, by far, the best a most attractions for the money that we pay. The value is the best.

The service is amazing! The agent that travels with your group will be very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire trip. Having the agent on the trip really  makes it fun for the director. You find that they have taken care of many of the small details and task that, in the past, have been the responsibility of the director. Now you can truly enjoy the trip more.

Finally, GTP, always puts us in accommodations that are always A+. We have been so pleased with travel, and hotel accommodations that we are somewhat spoiled.

This year we traveled to Washington DC. All of our trips have been great. However, the experience offered to us by Taber and GTP was extremely memorable. Our principal even traveled with us and he has marveled at the level of professionalism and top notch service that GTP provided for us. The students have not stopped talking about the trip. They have deemed it “THE BEST TRIP EVER!!”

We’ve already began to planning next year’s trip to Dallas/San Antonio, TX. We know that we will be completely satisfied.

I highly recommend Taber Sullivan and GTP for your group to travel with. I feel confident enough to say that you will not be disappointed and one day will soon feel the same way that I do about GTP.

Here is a list of all the places that we have traveled with GTP:

Orlando FL                 Spring 2010 Universal & Disney

Atlanta GA                  Spring 2011 Atlanta Symphony and Six Flags

Gatlinburg TN            Spring 2012  Dollywood & Dixie Stampede

My name is Dakeyan Graham and I am reaching out to you on behalf of Taber Sullivan and Group Travel Planners. It is my understanding that you are considering traveling from South Carolina to Orlando, FL for a trip with GTP. Please know that I speak from experience when I say, that would be a GREAT step towards having an incredible trip experience! I have traveled with GTP twice now and am in preparation for another next Spring. We are in Tampa, FL and have traveled to Washington, D.C., New Orleans, LA, and are slated to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City, NY next April. We have always traveled with Taber’s wife, Odalis, and every aspect of the trip has been incredibly smooth. In the event of a hiccup, in which there has only been one in our history on these trips, Odalis was quick to take care of it and handled the problem before it became a major concern, and ALMOST before I even knew anything was going on. 

All of the preparation were made and handled with the most professional of manners. The payment plans and prices were fair and appropriate for our demographic. We are a Title 1 school and GTP made it possible for my students to experience locations that they typically would not have gotten the opportunity to. I have chosen them to be our exclusive travel company and I recommend you do the same if you want a stress free and enjoyable trip. It was a pleasant surprise the first trip and a welcomed change on the one after to be able to sit back and enjoy myself as opposed to being the facilitator or every aspect of the journey.

If you have any questions or require other specific details, please do not hesitate to contact me. I hope you enjoy your trip to Orlando. Take care.

Musically Yours ~ Dr. Graham

  • Greetings,

My name is Dr. Dakeyan Graham and I am pleased to provide a professional reference for Group Travel Planners. We are in preparations to embark on our third out-of-state trip with this company and I could not be more pleased with the manner by which they operate. We are located in central Florida and have been to Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and New York. What initially drew me to this company was the affordable pricing for the trip in comparison to other companies. The personal touch and ease from a director’s stand point is the reason I have stayed. The trips are always planned to specification and personalized so that everything we wish to do can be accomplished. They cater to our needs and are extremely flexible and adaptive to our desires for itinerary. The personal touch of their travel agents is an element that sets them apart from other travel companies. Please let me know what specific questions I may be able to answer for you. You would be doing yourself a service by moving forward with this company for your travel needs. I look forward to hearing from you.
