CELEBRATE AMERICA with the legendary Route 66!

It has been called the Mother Road, Main Street USA and the Will Rogers Highway, but most of us know it as Route 66. And if a road trip deserves to be called “iconic,” this is it! The historic Route 66 goes from Chicago to Los Angeles and is filled with all kinds of things to see, do and taste! It's not only a flashback to a simpler time in history, but a reminder of what America was like back in the 1940’s & 50’s.

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR PAST ROUTE 66 TOUR:

Marge Geary, Williston Park, NY -"LOVED the Route 66 trip, it was very well planned and when things did not go according to plan, the plans were changed easily. I also like that it included the history of the places."
Margorie Sellers , Beaverton, OR- "I took this trip to meet new people, and see the mid-section of the US. Both were accomplished."
Cathy Climpson , Sharon, Ontario- "Great trip to see the nostalgia of this part of America!"
Jane Sheppard , Saint Joseph, MO- "Great tour, great company. Well worth the price of the trip!"
Sandra Geho , Marietta, NY- "I don’t know any other trip where you can see natural wonders, man made wonders, beautiful scenery and learn so much about our history."

Kathy Alexander , Eugene, OR- "Fantastic, exciting, educational, heartfelt, a trip of a lifetime!"
Lee Buhr , Cedar Rapids, IA- "The trip was wonderful. It was what I had hoped for, fun, quirky, awe inspiring and spontaneous. What inspired me the most was the wonderful group of fellow travelers."
Bobbie Dewees , Springfield, VA- "I thought the Route 66 trip was the BEST bus-based guided tour I had ever taken. The bus was not crowded, the leader and driver were both exceptional. I was most pleased that the agenda had enough wiggle-room that we could go off script and see some of the kitchy Route 66 sights which is what I was expecting."
Susan Tischler , Woodstock, GA- "My goal was to see more of America and this trip met that goal. The experience was Extraordinary!"
Don Chudzy , Calgary, Canada- "The tour met all of my expectations. It had the proper level of structure combined with the flexibility to react to situations as they arose. The tour did cover a great distance but as the weather was outstanding, there was always something to see and enjoy. Rest stops to eat and stretch were never a problem and made the days go by quickly. Hotels were excellent as was the transportation. The driver had very good knowledge of the areas and was entertaining."
Diane Green , Newark, OH- "This was a great trip with wonderful new friends and lots of nostalgia."
