Group travel & Bus Tours made easy in Central New York


While Covid-19 is still a threat, the number of people being vaccinated is increasing.  We will continue to take precautions for your health and safety during our tours and we ask you to do the same.  We will follow CDC guidelines and the policies at each destination we visit.  Per federal mandate, passengers are required to wear a mask or face covering (over nose and mouth) at all times on the motorcoach.  Hand sanitizer is available and travelers are encouraged to bring their own.  We will do our part and ask travelers to do theirs.  Most importantly, if you do not feel well the morning of departure, please do not travel.
