Overview

We’re returning to HOLLAND!  No, not in Europe, but in MICHIGAN.  And we’re going in the spring when the tulips are in full bloom and the scenery is lovely.  But that’s not all.  Michigan is one of our most beautiful states and has much to offer.  Our tour will highlight three areas of the state:  First, we’ll visit Chicago before traveling a short distance to Holland where we’ll participate in many activities associated with one of America’s great traditions: “Tulip Time”.  While there we’ll see great entertainment, festive parades, great Dutch culture and millions of tulips.  Next, it’s on to Mackinac Island, one of the most peaceful and charming places you’ll ever visit (no cars allowed, only horse and buggy).  Finally, we’ll see the German Village of Frankenmuth (Michgan’s most visited town), with its interesting culture and peaceful setting.  Before flying home, we’ll visit Dearborn, Michigan with interesting activities at the Ford complex.

The tour includes all breakfasts and many other meals in some lovely settings.  We’ll travel on a luxury motor coach, stay in excellent hotels (including the Island House Hotel on the island) and enjoy some unique and memorable activities.  If you’re looking for a spring getaway that is full of scenery, culture, history and great entertainment, this one is definitely worth considering.  We hope you can join us.

Itinerary

May 4: This morning we’ll fly to Chicago, arriving in the early afternoon.  We’ll go into town and enjoy a stroll on the Magnificent Mile followed by some free time for lunch and browsing at Navy Pier.  We’ll then enjoy a one hour boat ride (departing from Navy Pier) on the Chicago River known as the Architectural Tour.  It goes right through the middle of downtown Chicago and is a great way to see and learn about the city.  We’ll visit Millennial and Grant Parks which are important parts of this vibrant city.   We’ll sleep in a Chicago suburb tonight.  Tour to pay for boat ride.

May 5:  This morning we’ll work our way north along the eastern shores of Lake Michigan.  We’ll arrive in Holland by noon.  A delicious Dutch lunch will be waiting for us.  After lunch we’ll be welcomed to town by the delightful Kinderparade or Volksparade (to be announced). Both are dressed in Dutch costumes and carrying colorful banners and signs depicting their heritage.  In addition, high school bands in wooden shoes and other Dutch fun are part of the parade.  We’ll then go to our EXCELLENT hotel and check in and relax before a fun evening out.  We’ll have a delicious dinner followed by a show.

 May 7:  This morning we’ll drive through the interior of Michigan where you’ll see some lovely countryside.  We’ll have some interesting stops along the way.  By late afternoon, we’ll arrive in Mackinac City where we’ll board a ferry for an 18 minute ride over to Mackinac Island (pronounced Mak-i-naw).   The island is simply one of the most unique, beautiful, and serene settings anywhere.  There are no cars, no pollution, no noise, just a magnificent backdrop for our two nights here.  We’ll stay at the Island House which was built in 1852 (on the lakefront) and is on our country’s historic registry.  We’ll have a delicious multi-course dinner in the acclaimed Governor’s Dining Room overlooking Lake Huron.  Tour to pay for breakfast, ferry, and dinner.

May 8:  We’ll spend all day on the island today.  After breakfast, you’ll be on your own until about 10:30.  Lots to do within walking distance.  You can browse in the shops, stroll along the lake, see the butterfly house or just relax.  At 10:45, a local guide will show us some of the highlights of the island in our horse and carriage.  In a matter of minutes, you go form seaside scenes to pine forests to breathtaking overlooks.  Most of the island is a state park.  The tour ends at the luxurious Grand Hotel where we’ll enjoy the famous Grand Luncheon Buffet.  The Grand Hotel was made famous by the movie Somewhere in Time, which was filmed on the island.   This may be the most elegant lunch that you ever eat.  After lunch, you can explore this hotel and gardens which comprise the largest summer resort hotel in America, with the largest front porch in the world.   The views from the wrap-around verandah are breathtaking.  You’ll then have some free time to shop, visit Fort Maciknac or rest.  There are many special places to visit in our country.  Mackinac Island is certainly one of those places.  You simply have to see it!  Tour to pay for breakfast, lunch, and carriage tour.

Please Note

Registration Information:

To make a reservation, simply fill out the attached reservation form and send it to us with a deposit of $300 per person.  When we receive your deposit, we will mail you a receipt confirming that you are registered for the tour.  A letter with instructions, hotel itinerary flight information (if applicable) and luggage tags will be sent roughly 60 days prior to departure at which time the balance will be due.  You do not need to pay the balance until after you receive that packet.  We require final payments in the form of a check.  If that is not possible, arrangements can be made to use a credit card.  Webb Tours accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. A 2% fee applies to final payments made by credit card.

Cancellation Penalties

We understand that you may need to cancel your trip for whatever reason.  If it is 60 days or more before departure, all money will be refunded.  If airline tickets are purchased prior to that time (with your permission), they become the property of the traveler and are not refundable.  All other funds will be returned if cancellation occurs outside of 60 days.  If it is within 60 days, we will charge you only what Webb Tours cannot recover.  In some cases, we can recover all of it.  In others, we cannot.  Cruise lines, airlines, hotels and other service providers require funds in advance and have their own rules about what will be refunded once paid.  We must follow their guidelines.  For airlines, specifically, tickets are generally non refundable when purchased.  However, most airlines will allow the value of the canceled tickets to be reused for future travel, though a penalty may be assessed to reuse the tickets.  If you have to cancel, Webb Tours will work with other providers to obtain as much refund as possible for our travelers.  Our travelers know us to be very fair in this regard.

Cancellation Insurance: 

Cancellation insurance is also available should you be interested.  The insurance provider that we us is Travelex Insurance.  You can learn about them at www.travelexinsurance.com.  With this insurance, most of your money will be returned to you in case you have to cancel for covered reasons (illness or death of an immediate family member) at the last minute.  The price for the insurance varies based on the price of the trip and the age of the participant (at the time the insurance is purchased). 

If you are interested in the insurance, you can purchase it through Webb Tours at any time. The insurance goes into effect once purchased.  If you have any pre-existing conditions, it is best to purchase the insurance within 14 days of making your initial deposit as that will cover an illness that may result from a pre-existing condition. If you don’t have pre-existing conditions, you can purchase the insurance any time between now and the time you make your final payment.  Insurance cannot be purchased after your final payment is made.  Webb Tours is not the insurer and acts as agent for Travelex.  To activate your insurance, we need your premium and your birth date.  Insurance also includes the following items:
