These cross country trips are designed so that you can see and do a lot of things in a relatively short time. We use custom built full size executive coaches which are designed to accommodate 20 passengers very comfortably with a lot of special amenities. Some of these amenities include card tables for the avid players, a kitchen, Wi-Fi, 110 volt outlets, a couch and a lounge chair in the back. Just being able to get up and walk around or lie down and take a nap is a great advantage. We also prepare hot lunches on board and carry our own tables and chairs so we can have picnics at some of the most beautiful places we go. The idea is to create a “family” atmosphere which is easy to do with so few people on each tour. These are not at all ordinary bus trips.
On all but the West Coast Tour we have vans pick up throughout Missouri and then meet up with the bus to head out toward the destination. Each day we will typically see or do one thing in the morning and then another in the afternoon. Since there is so much to see and do, we usually depart by 8 am and arrive at our destination city around 6:30 pm that night. On the last day, we arrive back in Missouri, taking you right back to your home where we picked you up. In regards to our West Coast Tour; airfare and shuttle service both ways are not included in your cost.
The price of each trip includes is the motorcoach, lodging, hotel breakfasts, lunches and the cost of all venues shown. The price also includes the shuttle to and from your home, except the West Coast Tour. The price is based on 2 persons per room. If 4 people share a room, the cost will be reduced by $30 per night each person. If you want a single room, the additional cost is $70 per night. To reserve a seat, you must send a $200 deposit per person. The remainder is due 45 days prior to the trip. The price does not include gratuity for the driver and hostess; however, you can include this with your payment.
If you cancel more than 45 days prior to the beginning of the trip, you will receive back all but a $50 per person processing fee and any credit card fees that may apply. If you cancel between 45 and 15 days prior, you will receive a 50% refund. If we are able to fill the spot you vacated, you will receive back all of your money except credit card and processing fees. If you have to cancel less than 15 days prior or have to leave during the trip, you will receive a refund of any hotel costs and venues we are able to cancel. If you want a cancellation waiver to cover the potential loss if you have to cancel inside of 45 days, the cost is $90 per person (or $60 for the 5/6 day tours). Our cancellation waiver provides no coverage however, once the trip begins.
