    Great service

    "I was looking at a Caravan tour and, for some reason, Caravan didn't do it directly or something. It took me to Tours4Fun, so I thought I'd look it up and researched it a little bit and tried it out. I looked for it on the internet. Everyt...hing was fine. Questions I had were answered right away. Everything went pretty smoothly. When I had a question, they would email me or call; it was prompt." Read full review

Dear Stuart,

Thank you for choosing Tours4fun.

Regrettably, we have not yet received any updates on the departure dates from our local provider for this tour. You may check this tour back month of February 2017.

The number of passengers per tour can vary depending on the vehicle size used for each tour. The capacity of most tours (2 or more days) for a standard commercial coach is between 50 and 60 people. An average group is usually comprised of approximately 40 people. Again the size of the tour group varies depending on the popularity of a specific tour and the time of the year when the tour is scheduled to depart.

You will enjoy the tour in the comfort of a spacious and luxury-equipped motor coach for most of our tours lasting three days or longer. It is equipped with climate controlled air conditioning, reclining seats, storage compartments and a restroom. Our drivers have years of experience driving motor coaches and the seat assignments are rotated daily by the tour guide.

To place your order for a reservation online, simply select your desired tour start date and the number of rooms you need/ travelers you are booking for on the upper right section of the tour information page, then click on "BOOK NOW".
