|I have known Pamela Welsh for over 15 years and have not known anybody who has more energy and ability to socialize and organize then she does. If you need to go somewhere, somehow, she can get you there in the most affordable yet very pleasant way.
She has arranged travel for me and my husband many times over the years to Asia as well as Europe. Everything was always great. One of the things I appreciate most is that she is available to talk to over the phone or by email usually within 24 hours. I have recommended her services to family and friends and I am gladly extending the recommendation to you too!

In January my husband and I were very lucky to be part of Pam Welsh's Chinese New Year one week trip to Hong Kong. Having worried about a crowded tour with many people we didn't know, we resisted Pam's invitation for many years before taking the United Airlines direct flight from San Francisco to
This trip was more than fantastic !!!! We had 5 nights at the Langham Court Hotel in Kowloon , directly across from Hong Kong , 2 full guided tours, grand stand seats at the Chinese New Year Parade in Kowloon complete with gift packets from the sponsor Cathay Pacific Airlines, and a Chinese buffet along the water to view the New Year Fireworks. Very Dramatic. All this for an incredible bargain price.
The group was amazingly congenial, friendly and positive. We all loved our superb accommodations with great service and continental breakfast at the hotel. We were amazed at how beautiful and receptive the city of Kowloon and Hong Kong was for tourists. The buses, ferries and subway were all reasonable, reliable and very efficient. The Markets were fun and inexpensive and the guided tours were the most comprehensive in history and culture. In addition we had plenty of time to schedule our own side trips either by ourselves or along with a few of the other people on our tour that also wanted to see the same things.
It was an outstanding week and we loved the entire package and plan to return next year. Thanks Pam for including us.
"My wife Sharon and I have planned several vacations through Gottago Discount Travel, Inc. and Pam Welsh. We have planned trips for just the two of us, family trips that included our children, and large family reunion trips. Long ago it got to the point where we merely call Pam, and give her the basic parameters: the type of vacation trip that we are interested in, the people coming, our cost constraints, the available dates we have to travel, necessary amenities, etc. and leave the rest up to her. She comes back with a list of viable alternative vacation trips. From that point, we simply make a selection, and she does the rest. Pam is extremely thorough in following through on the details so that surprises are kept to a minimum. When individual travelers had to cancel or needed to leave from an alternate destination, Pam follows through. She is extremely flexible in handling late changes both from our end and from the airlines, hotels, resorts, etc. Pam has also been opportunistic in finding and passing along cost savings in areas where I believe most travel agents would not. Sharon and I have been extremely pleased with the services provided by Pam Welsh and Gottago Discount Travel, Inc. and highly recommend her to our friends and family."

"My husband and I took the trip of a lifetime with the help of Pam Welsh at Gotta Go Discount Travel. We spent three blissful weeks in Australia, due in no small part to all the hard work Pam put in to planning the trip for us. She assisted us in making the decisions about where to go, how long to stay, what accommodations to use, and how to best get to each of our destinations. In addition, Pam reserved a number of day excursions for us, and they all went off flawlessly. We were very impressed with the accommodations she chose for us, as well as how efficient the transportation arrangements were. Pam did such a good job that all my husband and I had to do was show up!"
"Gotta Go Travel is the best. My first experience with Gotta Go was when I took a group of college students on a three week travel course to Greece. You can just imagine what kind of work that was for Gotta Go with students changing their minds at the last minute, and parents wanting to make their own arrangements. But through all the problems, Gotta Go stuck by us, and the trip was mythic for us all. Since then, I've used Gotta Go to help make flight and accommodation arrangements on numerous occasions - for my honeymoon in Hawaii, my winter excursion to Puerto Vallarta, a relaxing Spring holiday to Cozamel, and Mom's seventieth birthday in Chicago. Gotta Go proved itself most valuable when my husband and I went to China. My husband was particularly concerned, but in the end, he was the one who was singing Gotta Go's praises the loudest. Gotta Go not only set us up with flights into and internal to China, and wonderful hotel accommodations, but made sure that we were met at the airport by a guide who had a full itinerary of places to go and things to see. We were totally taken care of and didn't have to worry about a thing. Travel is always a bit anxiety producing, and its great to have an agency like Gotta Go helping to make the experience so pleasant. Gotta Go has helped us create a lot of wonderful memories and we look forward to creating more in the future."
"We have traveled all over Europe and Africa and have experienced a wide variety of travel arrangements. This past summer we planned a month long trip through France and the United Kingdom and sought assistance from Pam Welch at Gotta Go travel. Pam is an outstanding guide and reference on places to stay, what to see, how to get there and move around. Her experience in traveling and in the travel industry made her suggestion golden. She knew exactly how to get to Paris inexpensively and where to stay. Her suggestion to take the Chunnel to London was a great insight to our sense of adventure. All of the connections and flights that Pam arranged were first rate and we never had a problem. The accommodations that Pam arranged were charming and unique. Our association with Pam and Gotta Go Travel made the trip one of a lifetime and memorable. We will continue to seek Pam's assistance and use her extensive expertise to arrange all of our travels from now on. Gotta Go Travel treats you like family and take the extra time to make your trip special."
"Pam Welsh is the only Travel Agent I would trust with my honeymoon, and she came through with flying colors! The package she arranged in Tahiti was superior to anything I found on the internet, and at a much better price. God knows what I would have wound up with using a website without a REAL PERSON standing behind it. I recommend her unconditionally to every one I know."
