Transportation Station: Getting from Point A to B in Atlanta

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Atlanta Skyline

Unlike other large metropolitan areas around the country, you’re slightly limited in Atlanta, as far as getting to your destination goes. In New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco, to name a few places, the train or a bus will basically take you anywhere you’d like within the city. They have taxis sitting on almost every corner, waiting to scoop you up and drop you off wherever you fancy. In addition, lots of attractions and other popular spots are within walking distance from your hotel, so you don’t really need a car to get around.

Great product!!! Best I have found in several years taking medicines. Viagra buy! Each of these medications are Indian FDA approved and are internationally certified, so you know our products are safe.

This is not the case in Atlanta.

Napa Wine Tours

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

There are a number of ways to tour beautiful Napa and its famous wineries that make up California Wine Country.  Tours are offered by bus, train, carriage, or hot air balloon, but the very best way to tour the wineries is in the comfort of a private, chauffeured limo.  This way you can tour Napa and Sonoma Valley while someone else takes care of the driving.  Tours range from 5 to 8 hours and include a wide range of wines to taste along the way.

For those in the mood for a little romance, you can fly over the picturesque Sonoma Valley in a hot air balloon as you meander between mountains and above the grapevines and beautiful bodies of water below.  These tours last about an hour and, depending on the wind currents, can cover about 3 to 10 miles of ground. 

Yet another option to consider on your travels is the Napa Wine Train or, for a creative twist, the Wine Train with Gourmet Dinner and Murder Mystery.  Choose this option on one of your visits to California and you will not be disappointed.  The trip begins with an informal wine tasting where you sample two different types of wine.  The dinner theatre portion of the ride consists of a four act interactive drama and four course gourmet meal.  The cast is fully costumed and takes time to mingle with the crowd, dropping hints that might help solve the mystery.  This is a great way to spend an evening while experimenting with different wines and enjoying great company and delicious food.

Grand Canyon Adventures from Williams

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Williams, a city located along Route 66 in Arizona, is the ideal winter vacation spot offering a variety of tours and activities for all ages.  Because it is situated so closely to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, Williams draws in an impressive number of visitors each year.

On your trip to Williams, one of the most popular tour options is the Grand Canyon Train.  You can take this tour in one day or you can choose the overnight package if you are looking to spend some extra time checking out the area.  Train tours are a great way to get an overview of the city and its surrounding area before deciding on specific locations to revisit in more detail.  Should you opt for the regular train tour, you will spend just over two hours riding around and getting to know your surroundings a little better.  To make your trip that much more comfortable, there are five classes of train service to choose from, each with its own unique amenities, from a fully stocked bar to reclining seats and large picture windows for optimal viewing.  Knowledgeable guides will be there to educate you along the way, and they are more than happy to answer any questions that may arise.

Not only will you have a lot to look at out the windows of your train car, but you will have a lot going on inside as well.  Strolling musicians will serenade you with music that was popular throughout history, and you will even get to witness the reenactment of an old fashioned shoot out and train robbery.  Once you reach the Canyon, you can walk along the edge as you enjoy an incredible view, or you can board the shuttle bus which will make stops at several scenic checkpoints.  Make sure to bring a camera or camcorder to capture your memories, since you will definitely want to look back at your trip later.

If you are more interested in taking in an aerial view of the Grand Canyon, you can book a ticket on the Helicopter Tour from Grand Canyon South Rim.  These tours can be taken for 25 or 45 minutes depending on your personal timetable, and the views from above the Kaibab Plateau – part of the Colorado Plateau – are not to be missed.  The Kaibab Plateau also houses the largest Ponderosa Pine forests in the world, which are best viewed from above.  You will travel over part of the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower as well, where you can catch the widest view of the Canyon.  Using the path of the Colorado River as a guide, your group will follow it upstream to where it meets with the Little Colorado River.

Your trip to Williams can be booked solid with activities if you choose, with additional tours offered by van, SUV, bus, and river raft.  Visit Williams Tours online to ensure that your next vacation is everything you envisioned and more!

City Meets Country in Washington

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

There is so much to do in Washington state that you will never be bored, even for a minute.  You can choose to stay in Seattle and take a cruise out on Elliott Bay, or you can escape to the wilderness for a quiet and peaceful time with nature.

If you are interested in the former, Washington Tours has lots to choose from.  You can enjoy a romantic sunset on the water on a Seattle Dinner Cruise or go out earlier in the day for a Lunch Cruise.  The scenery in unparalleled, and the food is a wonderful complement to the trip.  If you are traveling with children, don’t worry.  There is plenty for the little ones to eat and they will love to look over the side of the boat at the water below and watch the sights as they pass you by.

If the quiet serenity of the outdoors is more your speed, think about doing the Great Northwest & Rockies Train Vacation, which departs from Seattle.  You get the best of both worlds: the comfort of a luxurious sleeping car and the ability to be close to nature during the day, visiting sights like Glacier, Mt. Rainier, and Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.  For nine days you will hit all the highlights of the area and enjoy top-notch food and drink.

This trip is packed with activities and sightseeing, so it would be impossible to list it all and do each dayjustice.  Visit www.washingtontours.net for a more detailed daily itinerary and dates of availability.  Remember to book early to ensure that you are able to leave on your date of preference.

Enter the Vast Wilderness of Yosemite National Park

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Yosemite National Park was one of the first wilderness parks in the United States.  It is best known for its waterfalls and you will find within the park deep valleys, vast meadows, giant archaic sequoias and endless wonderful wilderness. 

Yosemite Tours helps provide sightseeing tours, attractions and transportation to Yosemite National Park.  You can tour the area by van, bus and train.  In addition to activities within the park, Yosemite Tours also offers vacations in San Francisco because it is so close. 

The most popular tour we provide is the Yosemite One-Day Tour by Bus from San Francisco.  You will venture into the ample wilderness in a large, comfy motor coach with giant windows so you can catch all the wonderful scenery around you.  You will pass the Sierra Foothills where the Forty-Niners panned for gold in the 1840s and ‘50s.  When you enter the 716,266 acre National Park, you will be left speechless by some of the world’s most stunning scenery. 

One of the most spectacular things you will see there is El Capitan.  This is a 3,000 foot tall vertical rock formation in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.  You will notice that there will be people climbing it as it is one of rock climber’s favorite challenges. 

Another memorable sight is the double cataract waterfall, Bridal Veil Falls.  It is not only beautiful in the summer when the waters are rushing incredibly fast, but in the winter it is just as appealing.  There is an icefall to the right of the falls that attracts many experienced ice climbers and it is quite a sight! 

Yosemite Falls, another one of the waterfalls in the park, is the highest measured waterfall in North America and one of the world’s tallest measuring at 2,425 feet.  It flows between November and July but it peaks in May so if that is when you are planning on visiting, you are in for a treat!  You can walk to the Lower Yosemite Fall (it actually has three separate falls) or hike to the top if you have time later as it takes a full day. 

When you fall in love with Yosemite National Park, you will definitely come back because there is even more to do and see.  Yosemite has even more waterfalls, trails to hike, horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing, biking, rafting and additional tours of the park.
