Imagine being treated to delicious home-cooked meals and down-to-earth hospitality…guided to the best scenic sites (and away from tourist traps)…and ensured safe, comfortable, well-researched places to stay. That's exactly what you get when traveling with Country Travel DISCOVERIES - it's the "CTD Way". It's like having your hand held throughout…but not too tightly. You'll feel "right at home" all over the world! OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH Our diligent team of travel discovery experts loves to scout for locations you can't go to on your own. We avoid crowded tourist traps, preferring to navigate a country's often-forgotten back roads to provide authentic, hard-to-find local experiences. The DeGrandchamps serve our groups fresh, warm blueberry muffins on their farm in Michigan; we have an exclusive tour through the National Weather Center in Oklahoma; and we travel into the Austrian countryside to visit a friendly Must farm family: it's these distinctive, personalized stops and local interactions that travelers fondly recall about their travels with us years later. It's these stops that bring our destinations to life! METICULOUS PREPARATION, EXPERIENCED STAFF We maintain a tradition of handcrafting unique, smooth-running tours that has earned travelers' trust and repeat business. Before any guest departs, our tour planners carefully travel the day-by-day route to make sure that every detail is arranged. We plot out every aspect, conduct site inspections, walk through tours twice, and go back for routine reviews. We don't get lost, we stay on time, and our hosts and vendors personally know us before we visit. All of our motorcoach, hotel and restaurant vendors must meet specific criteria and standards. Our staff keeps tabs on the group throughout your tour, and rigorously audits traveler surveys after every departure. We maintain an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and membership in the National Tour Association. This all combines into a perfectly executed tour backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. PACKED WITH VALUE Even the most scenic destination can be spoiled if the accommodations, meals, people you meet, arrangements and logistics don't meet your expectations. CTD only chooses quality hotel accommodations—3-star/diamond or above where possible—that are clean, safe, convenient, and offer "service with a smile". Our itineraries come with inclusions that many other operators don't offer: entrance fees for attractions; gratuities for local guides and included meals; government-imposed taxes, fees and airline fuel surcharges; luggage-handling (one bag per person) at hotels…even free bottled water on motorcoaches (where permitted). Airport transportation to our starting hotel or free vehicle parking comes with most tours. You'll enjoy hearty breakfasts, special group meals at local eateries, and even home-cooked meals and snacks as well.
