Tour Itinerary:

Day One - Begin Our Beautiful Drive

❖ We begin our beautiful drive up through Michigan with time to get-acquainted with our new Gad-About friends.  With rest and meal stops planned, we overnight at a lovely waterfront hotel in Mackinaw City.

Day Two - "Soo Locks Boat Tour" & Sault Ste. Marie

❖ Today we head down to the St. Mary's River, connected to Lake Superior, for the "Soo Locks Boat Tour".  This gives a fascinating view of both the Canadian and American Locks as we actually "lock through" the locks.  Then we make our way further north to Sault Ste. Marie, Canada, and our home for the next two nights, the lovely Algoma Water Tower Inn.  This afternoon, we'll enjoy an excellent tour of the area with a local step-on guide which will include a drive along the coast of Lake Superior - a beautiful route!  This evening we include a delicious dinner at Murio's, a local favorite spot!
Meals:  Breakfast & Dinner

Day Three - The Train Ride!

❖ Welcome aboard one of the most spectacular train rides in North America!  This all-day wilderness excursion will take you 114 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, over towering trestles, alongside pristine northern lakes and rivers, and through the awesome granite rock formations and mixed forest of the Canadian Shield.  Through the large picture windows of your comfortable rail coach, you will experience the same vistas and panoramas that inspired the Group of Seven to create some of Canada's most notable landscape art.  Only the hardiest made this rugged land their home and the foliage in this elevated region is spectacular!!  You will not believe the crispness and brightness that the leaves display this time of year - it's like magic!!  Also during your excursion, the friendly train attendants will tell you more about this fascinating country and its history.  Then just when you thought you'd seen it all, we'll coast 500 feet down to the floor of the Agawa Canyon, where you'll have around two hours of experience the rugged beauty up close.  You can enjoy scenic walks perched 250 feet above the tracks - WOW!  Or if you are looking for something more relaxing, you can pull up a bench and watch the Agawa River flow by.  The park rangers will also be on hand to answer questions.  Then we travel back the 100+ miles, arriving just in time for an included dinner in town.
Meals:  Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner


Day Four - Frankenmuth

❖ This day begins with a visit to the Canadian Bush Plane Museum - always fun, and very interesting!  Though you won't want to leave here, it will be time to say "good-bye" to the scenery you've been basking in, and travel to the quaint Bavarian village of Frankenmuth, Michigan, founded in 1845 by a group of German-Lutheran missionaries.  On the way, however, we'll make a picture stop at the famous "Mighty Mac" (Mackinac) Bridge.  Once we check into our Frankenmuth hotel, you'll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy as you wish, including getting dinner at one of the many choices in town!, .
Meals:  Dinner 


Day Five - Head for Home with Lots of Fun on the Way

❖ This morning we will pay a visit to the world-renowned "Bronner's Christmas Wonderland", which is far more than just a Christmas store, or stay in town to enjoy this quaint village any way you wish - there is more to see and do than you'll have time for in "Michigan's Little Bavaria"!!  Lunch is included today at the wonderful Bavarian Inn - prepare for total deliciousness!  Then it will be time to head home with a fun stop at Cabela's, every man's "dream store" for hunting, camping and outdoor items!  Even the ladies enjoy the enormous amount of woodsy "decorations" throughout the massive buildings.  The rest of our journey back to Ohio is complete with rest stops and a dinner stop for your traveling comfort. 
Meals:  Breakfast

For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover if you are making your reservation by phone, or you can send a check to our office (please call first to check availability). If you are booking online, payment must be made in full.

Up to 45 days prior to departure date, a full refund will be made. *Air and cruise tours, and some longer tours, may be different—be sure to ask for details when making your reservation. Tours including tickets also generally have earlier non-refundable dates. There are no refunds for cancellations made within 45 days prior to your departure date. However, we will do our best to recover as much as we can, but cannot guarantee anything. There will be no refund, for any reason, for a “no-show” on the day of the tour. A “Refund Protection Plan” is available at our office at a minimal cost. This insures you a full refund in case of a death or illness in the immediate family up to 24 hours before the tour departs. (It does require a doctor’s written note or copy of death notice.) On longer tours, we have a special insurance plan available if you are interested, and it will be sent to you with your confirmation. We encourage you to take advantage of these protection plans. The Refund Protection Plan does not apply to Day Trips, nor are there any refunds for Day Trips, with a few exceptions.

Gad-About Tours Inc. reserves the right to cancel any tour that has not reached a minimum number of reservations. We reserve the right to change tour prices and itinerary. Tours are prepared up to a year in advance and may be impacted by circumstances that arise which are beyond our control. We reserve the right to cancel or refuse service to anyone, in our sole discretion. We always avoid changes and cancellations if at all possible, as we realize the inconvenience to you, our valued customer.

All of our tours are by late-model, deluxe wide-body motorcoach. They are equipped with air-conditioning, reclining seats, public address system, VCR, and emergency restrooms. Our intent is for all overnight tours to be professionally escorted for your convenience. Upon occasion, in order to avoid canceling a trip with a low passenger count, our driver may serve both positions of driver and escort, and all are professionally trained to do so. All Fly Trips include airfare from Cleveland Airport , transfers and air taxes and fess (subject to increase until paid in full). You will drive yourself to the airport. Trip insurance is available, and will be sent to you upon making your reservation for your individual consideration.

Your lodging is included on all overnight tours. All hotels are AAA rated. We never use second-rate hotels, restaurants, or activities on any tour, to the best of our ability to make that determination. Payment of telephone calls, room service, and other incidentals at places of lodging are the responsibility of the customer.

One suitcase per person is included in the price of your tour. You are also permitted a carry-on, which is your responsibility. Additional luggage may be transported at the cost of $5.00 per bag, per day. It is wise to travel light. Luggage tags are provided and required for hotel identification, and are sent with the final letter with the phone numbers of your hotels.

All taxes and gratuities for included meals and activities are included, unless otherwise mentioned by the Escort. Driver and Escort gratuities are not included in the price of the tour, and are optional. However, the suggested gratuity as posted by the American Bus Assoc. for a job well done is $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the tour escort, and $2.00-$2.50 per person/per day for the driver. We request that you express this on an individual basis, and let the quality of service received be your guide.

On all overnight tours, we use a daily seat rotation. The first day of a trip, we allow you to choose your seat when you get on, and rotate from there. We feel this is fair to all involved. If the coach is not full, a less formal rotation may be used at escort’s discretion.

We make regular stops for restrooms and for the convenience of smokers; however, we have a NO SMOKING policy aboard all coaches. This policy also applies to e-cigarettes.
