Tour Itinerary

Day One - Arrive in Charleston, South Carolina
Welcome to Charleston, widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and historic cities in America; a place where delightful southern breezes and cobblestone streets pave the way to gracious living and warm hospitality. Your Tour Manager will be available this evening at 6:00 p.m. to provide further details on the program and to offer dining suggestions.

Day Two - Charleston and Middleton Place
We begin the day with a narrated cruise across Charleston Harbor to historic Fort Sumter, site of the first shot of the American Civil War. Continue to Middleton Place Plantation, home of Henry Middleton, President of the First Continental Congress. This National Historic Landmark features a richly decorated home and 65 acres of meticulously designed gardens. Enjoy a taste of the Old South with a traditional Low Country Plantation lunch before a guided tour of Charleston, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful cities in America. Breakfast and lunch

Day Three - Charleston to Jekyll Island, Georgia
This morning depart for one of “Georgia’s Golden Isles,” Jekyll Island with the beautiful oak trees, Spanish moss and palmetto. On the way, we visit Beaufort, known for its southern hospitality, and enjoy the scenic waterfront charm, quaint shops and historic homes.

The seven wonders of Oregon, very good sights, lots of bus rides, some of which were very long.

By Shirley S on Oct 03, 2015

Just wanted to say our tour guide did a great job. If we had any free time she was always fiinding more things to do that was extra. She really does her job well. When and if I take another one I would certainly do a tour with her. Our driver was great also. Just amazing how he handles that bus.

Decided bus trips are not really our preferred mode of travel. A few issues with hotels, timing of tours/meals etc. Maybe 48 is too large a group. Was on a tour before with bus and cruise portions but only 28 travels and was much more pleasant.
