What our clients have to say
Dear Koning DayTours, Inc.,
My wife has travelled with you for 21 years, and I have travelled with you for the past several years since my wife introduced me to your fine service. I wish to express our appreciation for the great service you provide. We have travelled all over the country and out of the country, always having an excellent time, with super attractions, and great value for the trips. We also have met many other nice people and made many new friends while travelling.
The coach service is always excellent, with good, polite, and helpful drivers. The coaches are always neat, clean and well maintained. They normally have on-bus WIFI service, and convenient outlets for recharging cell phones or computers, for our convenience. Appropriately timed comfort and meal stops are included during travelling. We also appreciate the under-bus storage for bulky items purchased during travel.
The Koning escorts are always knowledgeable, friendly and cheerful. Often, during long trips, they will show movies to help pass the time, play games and solve any problems that arise. When local guides are utilized, they are professional, helpful, and very will versed in the local sites and atrractions. And the Koning office staff is always friendly and helpful, top-notch in all respects!
The hotels selected are always top-notch, providing a good night's sleep and rest after a day packed with adventure and visiting sites of interest and entertainment.
The restaurants are always top-notch, as well, offering a selection of good, nourishing, great tasting meals. (There goes my diet!)
But mostly, it is the attractions offered on the trips which are the reason we travel so much. It must take a lot of reserarch to select the attractions you offer. We certainly are impressed with the variety and quality of the sites, plays, musicals, shopping and other attractions that are included in every trip.
Additionally, the Mystery Trips are fantastic and offer the excitement of new and different places as well!
We will continue travelling with you as long s our helath allows it. A hearty THANK YOU for the service you provide.

After travelling several years with large travel compainies, we were a little hesitant to travel with a smaller local company, but decided 9 years ago to try a tour with Koning. This proved to be an excellent decision. Over the years we've gone on many tours with Koning. We've never been disappointed. Sharon, her office staff, escorts and drivers are all amazing. Every detail of every tour is planned perfectly. We are all treated as special friends, and a happier, friendlier group of travelers would be hard to find.
On our most recent tour the ride back to Rochester was during a major snow storm. We were all able to relax and even nap because we knew we were in capable hands of an excellent driver, and our escort, Sharon.
Burt says: "The part I like is stepping off the coach, were the escort says 'we're going in here, and the Coach willl be here when we come out.' For me that means no driving, no parking, no worries about timing, no planning....Heaven!"

Traveling with DayTours was one of the best decisions we ever made! Each trip is well planned, from one day trips to extended ones. On each trip you take, you always seem to tour something different and interesting. The office staff are so helpful, and the motorcoach drivers are the very best. It's wonderful to sit back and relax and just enjoy the scenery before arriving at your destination. We llook forward to many more trips with DayTours.

We have been traveling with Koning DayTours for 10 years. We take 10 or more exteded trips plus one day trips every year. We have enjoyed everyone of them. We have already signed up for 7 extended trips this year.
Sharon offers a variety of tours. They are all well planned and everything is first class.
Everyone from Sharon to Jane and Maureen in the office, Sharon, Nancy and Karen as escorts and the drivers are the best. They are like family.
We plan on traveling with Koning DayTours on many trips this year and in the years to come.

I want to thank everyone at Koning DayTours for the outstanding work in planning our trips and I have been on many.
Due to poor timing, I recently had to travel with another travel organization and I sure missed the little things Koning does for us that we aren't aware of. I have grown to trust the decisions they make from planning, traveling, accommodations, too many to list. Our every need is met.
Once you've been on one Koning trip, you are family.
Since 2009, we have traveled with Koning DayTours. We have taken nine extended trips and one trips with Koning. We cannot say enough about how well these trips are run and coordinated. Our tour guides have been Sharon, Nancy and Karen. The hotel accommodations have been first-class, the food great and the local guides on each trip are top-notch. We are so spoiled by Koning DayTours that we probably will never use another travel company. We have already signed up for three extended trips and one day trips in 2012.

I have been traveling with Koning DayTours for over ten years. During that time I have taken dozens of wonderful trips and have enjoyed every one of them. I am most impressed with the planning that goes into each trip. Restaurants are always excellent, accommodations are always superb, theatre seats are always great, plus the drivers and escorts are simply the best. It is a pleasure to deal with the office staff as everyone is always most helpful with answers to my questions. With airline travel becoming increasingly unpleasant lately, traveling by bus has become an easy way to go. I can pack anything and also leave things on the bus. I took fifteen trips with Koning last year and plan to take at least a dozen more this year. For the price, Koning can't be beat!
WXXI has been working collaboratively with Koning DayTours for almost two years now. The knowledge and creativity that Sharon Koning brings to the table has really made a difference in our ability to reach out to our current members and more importantly, to people who are not members of WXXI. With their help we have brought in 183 new members and raised $64,000 for WXXI. In addition, our ability to interact with members in a more social environment during travel has led to deeper relationships with some of our most major donors.

I am an enthusiastic DayTours traveler, having been on many one day and several extended tours since 1986.
Family trips to Disney World and Lake George were planned for me by the company for some twenty people.
DayTours provides interesting destinations with reasonable prices, first class accommodations and a professional escort.
Suggestions for future travel are encouraged.
We enjoy traveling with DayTours because of the variety and competitive prices of the various trips they offer with each brochure they send out. Also the knowledge and friendliness of each of their tour guides makes for an enjoyable trip.
We especially enjoy the mystery trips and always call as soon as we get the flyers to sign up for all that are listed. Everything that is done by Sharon and her staff is top of the line and is meant to be an everlasting memory of each special trip.
We have met many new friends and continue to enjoy their company.
To Sharon and your staff, keep up the good work of scheduling great trips!!!!!!!

Our first trip with DayTours was in 2001 at the urging of my Aunt. We went on an extended trip to Myrtle Beach and were only disappointed by the weather. Since then we have enjoyed both one-day and extended trips. The attention to detail and client comfort and care is what makes DayTours so exceptional. We have traveled with at least three other tour groups (one which is a well known national chain) and ALWAYS return to DayTours. Our philosophy is this.....you can try the rest, but you will always come back to the best!
