For the holiday season this year, we humbly present a very special Mystery Tour experience. The Christmas Mystery is always the most popular of the year. Early reservations are advised.
The holiday season is grand. It’s a wonderful time to get out and share the joy of life and the season with friends; in this case friends you haven’t even met yet. We’ve chosen one special small American town that carries a unique holiday distinction. Its neighbor villages offer additional opportunities to discover small town hospitality and holiday cheer. Three small towns in all, each with a distinctive flavor. One will offer you the opportunity to share in the most traditional of American holiday traditions. You’ll even trace the lives of two beloved historical figures, one very connected to Christmas.
We can’t tell you any more than that, except to say that this will be very different from any previous Christmas Lights Mystery. Note that we’ve dropped the “lights” name from the itinerary, but that doesn’t mean you won’t see some magnificent light displays. We just want to make the focus a little different this year, on the people and the destination, rather than the twinkling. As was noted last year, Christmas lights from inside a vehicle are what they are.
Oh, and one other thing. We are going to shower you with gifts. You may not need to do Christmas shopping when you get home, you are going to have so much loot. In a unique twist, you’ll be participating in a very special gift giving program that helps the families of American military troops. It’s a cold weather destination, early in the season, and it will be one of the most memorable trips in our 32 years.
*The itinerary includes EVERY meal, 15 in all, plus airfare, door-to-door pick-up and your old buddies Mark and Chris to shovel the snow… we mean show you a good time!
*2600 /2900 Gold Passport Points
Two 3-night hotel stays anchor this itinerary, full of “rarely or never before visited on a Sports Leisure tour” attractions/destinations. One stay is in a historical city, one in a historical property. Allow us to offer some clues as to your destinations: There is dinner one night in an exclusive club, and at one point in your travels, you’ll ponder where to cross the river. You’ll meet a prince and a general, and learn of some fictional characters from a place called “Downton Abbey” you may enjoy.
Considering the calendar, fall foliage could come into play, but the big question is, “Will they be better inside or out?” The colors we mean. Both hotels are named for famous American families. Visit a historic but new castle (How can it be both?), explore the halls of a famous house of learning.
Seven live performances are guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit!
Kick off the holiday season close to home but with a European flair in Victoria, BC where Christmas season arrives with around-the-world traditions! This exclusive holiday itinerary flies roundtrip to/from Victoria, eliminating the ferry ride across the water, and spends all three nights in a terrific location (in a great hotel). After flying in, relax for three nights along the harbor front at The Chateau Victoria Hotel, in your comfortable suite. Partake in a narrated city tour, stopping for high tea at the famous Empress Hotel, tour Craigdarroch Castle, beautifully decorated for Christmas, and enjoy dinner in Butchart Garden’s Dining Room. View the gardens aglow with thousands of twinkling lights while sipping a cup of steaming hot chocolate.
