Dream Vacations From Vermont
Day 1: Travel by motorcoach to the Maine coast where we will kick things off with a lobster dinner. Then take the afternoon to explore downtown Ogunquit, take a dip in one of the hotel pools or hot tubs, lay on the beach, or stroll Marginal Way. Everything is within walking distance to the hotel. Everybody will reconvene for dinner and then spend your evening as you wish.
Day 2: Early risers may want to watch the sun rise over the ocean. Breakfast is at your leisure in the hotel before we head out. This morning we will tour the coast on a boat cruise and maybe learn a little about lobstering. Next we head to up the coast to Kennybunkport where we well have a great lunch by the ocean and you will have a chance to explore another charming Maine town. Tonight features an elegant dinner and then off to the Ogunquit Playhouse to see a performance of Mr. Holland’s Opus.
Day 3: After breakfast we board the motorcoach and say goodbye to Ogunquit but there is still plenty to do on our way back home. All of the cameras will be out as we stop to see Nubble Lighthouse on Cape Neddick. Then satisfy your sweet tooth or just bring home some goodies from our stop at a candy store with over 10,000 pounds of treats on display. Save your appetite thought as the next stop is an upscale steak house for a meal you will remember. Just in case the big meal is not enough to facilitate your northbound nap we will be making one more stop for a tour and tasting at a winery.
If you’ve ever talked to anyone who has been to Alaska, they’ve raved about it! This is your chance.

Behold spectacular Alpine vistas and enjoy a performance of the famed Oberammergau Passion Play on this journey through Italy, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. Begin your tour with a stay at Lago Maggiore in the amazing lakes region of Italy at the foot of the Alps. Next travel into Switzerland and visit Zermatt where you will marvel at the Matterhorn as it towers over the city from the distance. Next climb aboard the Glacier Express for an unforgettable train ride through the Alpine scenery of majestic mountains, verdant valleys, picturesque canyons, glistening glaciers and snowcapped peaks. After a stay in St. Moritz we will make our way across the border of Austria to Innsbruck. From there we will visit Salzbrug for a tour featuring the birthplace of Mozart and Mirabell Gardens, before treating your taste buds to a scrumptious dinner and Mozart concert at the centuries-old St. Peter’s Restaurant. The tour then leads into yet another country as we make our way to Germany’s Bavarian capital of Munich. The city tour here will highlight the Marienplatz, the Glockenspiel and the Olympic Park. Your final destination Oberammergau, a quaint village nestled in the Bavarian Alps, is where you’ll witness a performance of the world-renowned Passion Play, whose origins date back to 1634. Watch as the entire village comes together to fulfill their vow to perform a play every ten years in honor of Christ’s life if they were spared from the Black Plague. This is an event that will not happen again until 2030, so don’t miss it while you have the chance. Our last day of touring features a pair of properties beyond your dreams. The Linderhof Palace is pure opulence and over the top ornate in every room. The Neuschwanstein Castle perched on top of a steep rock hill seems straight out of a fairy tale for good reason, it was inspiration for Sleeping Beauty’s castle.
