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


Christmas Lights in San Francisco

Another annual trip welcomes Christmas with a narrated tour of the city dressed up and decorated in celebration of the holidays. With visits to Civic Center, Union Square, Financial District, Nob Hill, and the Embarcadero, the bright and colorful lights of the skyline, bridges, and city, will put you in the spirit of this festive season. An early dinner is included at Fog Harbor Restaurant.


Christmas Mystery Tour

Eagerly anticipated by many who have made it an annual tradition, our Christmas package of mysterious fun is more regional this year. A plane flight is involved, but it’s a bit shorter than our recent cross-country visits to Virginia Beach (2015) and Chicago (2014). So not quite as much distance to travel, but still full of unique holiday attractions and old fashioned fun! In fact, this year, we revisit one of the destinations from our very first Christmas Mystery Tour 15 years ago.

There are two major destinations, and a host of smaller ones. In fact, it’s in the small towns that you’ll find the most unique activities. How about a visit to a family farm stocked with holiday treats? A lights show…no make that two lights shows you can walk through. Very easily. Traditional entertainment with a Christmas theme one evening, lots of lots of great shopping opportunities along the way. More than you can imagine.

Can a Christmas tree really sing? Did early pioneers have Christmas lights? These and other important and pressing questions will be answered along the way.


Christmas Shopping in the City

Join our annual trip to downtown San Francisco to browse, shop, or just enjoy the festive window displays and store decorations. Lunch is at your leisure in Union Square with an optional shuttle in the afternoon to Pier 39 before returning home to Sacramento.
