Group travel made easy in Central New York.

THANK YOU!  We've just wrapped up a very busy couple of months filled with tours and luncheons/shows.  We are so grateful to the many folks who have been traveling on our public tours as well as the group tours.  That has really kept us hopping and now we apologize that we've been so busy that we find ourselves a bit behind in getting new tours out there, ready for you in 2019.  Please be patient just a bit longer and we promise to post new experiences and opportunities soon. 

In the meantime, if you have ideas or suggestions on offerings you'd like to see in the future, please send us a message.


Coming in 2019

Asheville, North Carolina featuring the Biltmore Estate and Gardens (May 13 - 18)

4th of July Holiday with the Boston Pops (July 3-5)

More details and more tour announcements coming soon!!


It's not too late.....There are still a limited number of cabins available for our Tulip Time on the Rhine River Cruise in April, 2019.  Airfare is just $399.00 per person round trip, or free if you are traveling as a single.  Join us and many of your neighbors.  We have a large group going and would love to have you join us.  Check out his video for more information on Tulip Time on the Rhine and Mosel Rivers:
