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


14th Annual Christmas Mystery Tour

Last call! 4 seats available. The clues: Mystery Tours always feature great dining and fun food stops. Heck, even the Rockefellers would be impressed with this dinner. A lavish Sunday Brunch you say? In a hotel named after a man named Tom? So why isn’t it called the Tom Hotel?

Breakfast with a view (for 3 days)? Fancy accommodations? (The hotel pattern is 3 nights, 1 night, 1 night.) Oh, and the chocolate is FREE. Who doesn’t like free chocolate at Christmas? Fireworks? Of course! How about some really tacky Christmas lights? How could that NOT put you in the holiday spirit? Catch a wave. Join us for this annual tradition.

A Christmas Story: The Musical

The 1983 film “A Christmas Story,” based on Jean Shepherd’s nostalgic and comedic holiday tale, has been re-­wrapped as a new Broadway musical by songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. For pop culture fans, it’s not really the Christmas season until you hear this line: ”You’ll shoot your eye out!” Although this staged version is not an exact replica of the movie, the basics we have all come to love and enjoy at are still intact – Ralphie, the youngster who pines for an “Official Red Ryder Carbine­ Action Two-­Hundred-­Shot Range Model Air Rifle,” the iconic leg lamp, the turkey­ destroying dogs, the pink bunny suit, and the tongue­-on-­the­-frozen-­flag­pole scene. What better way to kick off the holiday season?

Our trip includes a snack box lunch served on the coach, orchestra seating, and a no–host dinner stop at Pier 39 directly after the 2pm show at The Orpheum Theatre in SF . This is our only date offered!
