General Testimonials

“I have been fortunate to enjoy four trips with Doctors-on-Tour since 2009 - to Ecuador, Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos, India and Bali. All these tours were wonderful. Well-organized, excellent accommodations, top notch guides, remarkable CME experiences that broaden one's outlook on medicine and really great leaders of the tours. You should seriously consider taking one of these exotic trips. Beats lying on a beach!”

"I found the trip to Spain to be a great combination of site-seeing, CME and amazing gourmet meals and wines selected by an internationally famous chef. We visited several famous vineyards and were able to sample their wines. The visit to an ophthalmological institute was especially memorable, we watched lens surgery in close up. The visit was very well organized with time to explore cities on our own, as well as tours of architectural wonders. I strongly recommend this tour as a great experience"

"Spain greatly surpassed my expectations, offering wonderful gastronomic experiences, lavished with outstanding wines and extremely hospitable people with a culture and history that is as rich as deep. The co-organizer, Fernando Garcia, Executive Chef of La Vinia Restaurant in Toronto, through his many connections, was able to allow us access to exclusive vineyards, where we were submerged in to the local cuisine and regaled with their finest wines".

-- Dr. Peter Bloch, Oakville – Spain Gourmet tour, 2011

The choice of guide was impeccable. Carlos was the best guide we have ever had in our travelling experience. The group bonded and I would travel again with them. My wife and I have done quite a bit of travelling in the past few years, and your company's expertise and personal touch made the trip worry-free, professional, interesting, knowledgeable, and extremely unique.

CME & Cultural Tour of East Africa

"I wanted to let you know that the trip to East Africa was excellent.  The safari was well organized from beginning to end and John, our knowledgeable guide, unfailingly and graciously coped with all the challenges of the adventure. This was my third trip to Tanzania in the past 2 years and I came away feeling that I had finally seen the positive side to this beautiful country. We were fortunate to see far more animals than we had anticipated and the drivers took time to let us watch various scenarios play out rather than simply snapping a picture and moving quickly on.  Having compared this safari to reports from others and to my previous one to the Ngorongoro Crater last year, I can honestly say that this was superior in every way.  I definitely would recommend it to interested others"

-- Dr. Pat Barry, Burlington - Kenya & Tanzania, 2013

“A wonderful trip. It was amazing to see so many different animals co-existing on the beautiful African plains. The Kenyan and Tanzanian people we met were gracious and welcoming. Our host/trip manager was excellent - very bright, knowledgeable, good problem solver, great people skills - a delightful man who really made our trip memorable. Our guide/driver was also excellent - very knowledgeable, an excellent driver and keen to make our safari experience a good one. We had lots of fun and learned a lot from him. I loved the parks and reserves - the Serengeti and Ngorongoro are absolutely amazing”.

Andrea Maurice, Toronto – Kenya & Tanzania, 2010

CME & Cultural Tour of Chile & Argentina

"Great trip and a wonderful extension - really worthwhile taking the time"

-- Dr. Aloke De, Ottawa, On. - Chile & Argentina (Atacama Desert extension), 2015

"At the Concha y Toro vineyard, we had a deluxe tour involving a sit down tasting with a sommelier after the earlier tastings in the cellar. Another highlight was the small vineyard where we saw, picked and tasted the different grape varieties. Great trip!"

-- Dr. Tony Vettese, Mississauga, On. - Chile, Argentina and Patagonia Cruise, 2014

"We felt the tour is one of the best (CME tours) we have been on. We keep missing the great Chilean wines and Argentinian beef. Right sized group and great company. CME tours were interesting and informative. Our guides were good and I enjoyed learning about the country from their comments".

-- Dr. Eduardo Aenlle, Fallbrook, California - Chile, Argentina and Patagonia Cruise, 2014

"A great idea to be able to combine the two countries in one visit as it allows one to compare and contrast. The choice to meet with local physicians in both private and public hospitals provided an opportunity to experience health care outside of Canada"

-- Dr. Edo Teku, Toronto - Chile, Argentina and Patagonia Cruise, 2012

“Great company, well organized and interesting tours, educational lectures and great food (and wine….!) Fantastic trip!”

-- Dr. Ray Martin, Toronto – Argentina, 2006
