Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive in Chicago
Chicago is America’s third largest city and boasts a friendly, Midwest atmosphere. For those arriving early, your hotel is close to the Lake Michigan waterfront. Visit one of Chicago’s great museums or stroll along the “Magnificent Mile.”

Your Tour Manager is available in the lobby at 6:00 p.m. to assist with check-in and can offer suggestions for dining this evening.

Day 2 Chicago to Michigan
This morning, begin the day with a panoramic tour of downtown Chicago with a local guide. Leave the big city behind for charming Traverse City, Michigan, known for its sparkling beaches, unique shops and cherry orchards. Meals: B, D

Day 3 Traverse City
Begin your day exploring Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore that was named for an Indian legend. These expansive golden dunes stretch for more than 35 miles along the twinkling blue waters of Lake Michigan. A local guide tells the history and lore of the area including the peninsula and lighthouse.

You’re treated to a one-of-a-kind collection of rare antique musical instruments and musicmaking machines, from 1870 through 1930 at the Music House Museum. Nickelodeons, music boxes, pipe organs and a Belgian dance organ come alive. Meal: B

Day 4 Agawa Canyon Autumn Foliage Train
Today, cross the border into Canada to board the Algoma Central Railway for a spectacular train ride through scenic Agawa Canyon during autumn foliage time.

This all-day adventure takes you past massive rock formations, through thick forests of maple and birch and over pristine streams and lakes as you wind your way to Agawa Canyon. Explore the Agawa River and its waterfalls on the valley floor before returning to Sault Ste. Marie. Meals: B, L

Day 5 Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel
A trip to Mackinac Island is a like a trip back in time. From its bluff cottages to its quaint horse-drawn carriages (no cars are allowed on the island), this peaceful resort island offers a glimpse into life during a simpler and more genteel era. Upon arrival, tour the Island via horse-drawn carriage and step back in time as you enjoy the atmosphere of this unique treasure. At the end of the tour, the carriage brings you to the crown jewel of Mackinac Island, the Grand Hotel, the world’s largest summer hotel, built in 1897, and your home for the next two nights. Meals: B, D

Day 6 Explore Mackinac Island
You will have the entire day at leisure on Mackinac Island. Browse the many shops, visit historic Fort Mackinac or rent bikes and peddle along the coast of Lake Huron. “The Grand” is a venerable island institution and the perfect place to enjoy a stroll in the landscaped gardens or enjoy afternoon tea. Don’t forget to sample the world-famous Mackinac Island fudge! Meals: B, D

Day 7 Traveling in the Great Lakes State
Leave Mackinac Island today and travel through the Great Lakes State. Michigan has the unique distinction of being surrounded by four of the five Great Lakes. Your destination is Dearborn, the heartland of the Ford Motor Company. Meal: B

Day 8 Ford River Rouge Factory Tour & The Henry Ford Museum
This morning, you go behind the scenes at the world’s largest automotive complex as you watch the Ford F150 pickup truck being built on a Ford Motor Company factory tour. This afternoon you have the choice of visiting The Henry Ford Museum, often called “the attic” or Greenfield Village, also known as “America’s Hometown.” Tonight, enjoy a farewell dinner hosted by your Tour Manager. Meals: B, D

Day 9 Journey Home
Your journey ends with a group transfer to Detroit Metropolitan Airport for flights out after 10:00 a.m. or Chicago O’Hare Airport for flights after 5:00 p.m. Meal: B

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Our Tour Manager, Jolie, was outstanding. We were totally impressed with her professionalism, courtesy, empathy, and kindness. She is also informative and a lot of fun. She treated all of us with dignity and warmth. She kept us informed about departure times, meal times,and opportunities for self-touring. We appreciated her cheerful and fun-loving attitude. Our bus driver, Mike was terrific. Great driver, very professional, and personable. He went out of his way to transport us to different destinations and provided great service. The pick up service drivers, Steve and Ken were on-time, courteous and friendly.

First time with Mayflower Tours, it was great. We will travel with them again. The tour guide added optional attractions not listed on the tour itenerary which was a plus to us. Affordable Tours agent, Brendan, was great to deal with too. All and all a good experience.

This trip was amazing. It was exciting, interesting, and I appreciated the free time and flexibility to explore on my own. Elisabetta was an excellent tour specialist. I would travel with her again.
