Escorted Travel and Seniors Coach Tours

Our goal was the little town of Lachine, a few miles outside of Montreal. Lachine was an old trading town on the St Lawrence River with many historical buildings. It is near the famous Rapids of the St Lawrence, which you can ride in rubber rafts. Everyone on board wears rainwear, but get soaked anyway.

Going on a trip with your family can be a lot of fun. In the travel lingo, this usually means escorted tours for parents and kids to places like the Grand Canyon or the safari in Africa. The destination is almost always outdoors with lots of opportunities of learning for kids. Some tours include sports like biking, horse riding, kayaking, rafting or if you’re lucky, a walk on a glacier.

Plan Ahead: Once you have decided on a destination, and your mode of travel, whether by sea or air, make some concrete plans for the trip so that your expectations will be met. Decide whether you would prefer to be part of a guided tour, (recommended), or plan your own itinerary and sightsee at your own pace. Most serious vacation spots offer escorted travel of cultural landmarks, and other places of interest.

Festival hours: Fri. (5-11 p.m.), Sat. 12-11 p.m., Sun. 12-11 p.m. and Mon. 12-10 p.m. Admission is $7; $5 for seniors (65 & over); kids under 12 are admitted free.

Don’t let one stubborn parent refuse help to the detriment of the other parent. Sometimes it is the caregiver spouse, in seeming good health, who suddenly dies while caring for the other spouse. Sometimes they just don’t want to face the truth. Appeal to the stubborn person’s “love” of their partner. If that doesn’t work, feel confident that safety comes first and do what you have to do, despite their objections. You may have to ignore the rants of one parent to protect the other. Be prepared to be strong in this regard.

Also note that regardless of how you may choose to tour; certain areas lend themselves to escorted or hosted tours more so than if you are a less experienced traveler. These types of tours just make the trip feel more relaxed and carefree. On the other hand, the familiar you are with a destination or the more American, the less need for escorted or hosted tours.

Whatever your travel ambitions may be, a guided tour has got you covered. Be introduced to iconic destinations and be your resource on what to do, where to eat, and what to see if you choose to return! Enjoy your next vacation to the East Coast.
