Tour Description:

This summer vacation package combines wonderful attractions throughout including beautiful Cook’s Forest, the mighty Kinzua Dam, Salamanca Casino, the lovely village of Ellicottville and Niagara Falls with the Maid of the Mist boat cruise. There will be beautiful scenery and lots of fun with something for everyone on this 3-day combination package.

Tour Itinerary:

July 24 – Today we will first head to the lovely area of Cook’s Forest with a stop at the popular Farmer’s Inn amidst the beautiful scenery. This wonderful forest attraction includes a restaurant, ice cream stand, country gift shop, bakery, souvenirs, animal exhibits, petting zoo, Amish furniture and more. We will enjoy a little time here including a delicious home cooked lunch in a quaint atmosphere…enjoy your visit ! We will then move on to the mighty Kinzua Dam in the Allegheny National Forest which is one of the largest dams in the United States East of the Mississippi River. In addition to providing flood control and power generation, the dam created Pennsylvania’s deepest lake, the Allegheny Reservoir also known as Kinzua Lake. The Kinzua Dam construction was begun by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 1960 and completed in 1965….it is a mighty sight and we will have plenty of time for viewing – be sure to bring your cameras. After an afternoon of sightseeing and enjoying the outdoor areas we will move a little further north to Salamanca, New York to spend the night. This is the home of the popular Seneca Allegany Casino where you will have the rest of the evening to enjoy as you wish. You don’t have to go to Las Vegas to get world-class gaming, dining and entertainment…from state of the art slot machines and your favorite table games and great dining, you will find the Seneca Allegany Casino has it all. We have found this to be one of the most popular casinos among our travelers. Enjoy your evening. (L)

July 25 – Continental breakfast included at your hotel before we depart Salamanca and head further north to Lockport, NY.  Here you will experience a unique cruise through the double set of locks on the Erie Canal.  You will pass under bridges that raise straight up, see water cascade over Lockport's famous "Flight of Five" locks and travel through the solid walls of rock cuts as your Coast Guard licensed captain describes the architecture, sights and folklore along the way.  Bring your cameras and enjoy your cruise as you wave to the folks watching from the bridges or the joggers and bicyclists on the tow path.  After your cruise, a delightful lunch will be served before we say goodbye to our friends on the "Erie Canal" and continue up to Niagara Falls, New York for our last overnight.  (There will be time for viewing the falls, but this tour will be staying on the American side and no passport will be needed for passengers).  Your evening will be free to enjoy the town, visit the casino and have your choice of dining options in the area or at the casino.  (CB, L)

July 26 – This morning we will meet our tour guide who will take us on an informative and lovely tour of the New York Niagara Falls area to show you why this is one of America’s most popular destinations. Your complete tour will include a very special up-close look at the falls aboard the magnificent Maid of the Mist boat cruise which will be an experience you will long remember. (Some of this tour is walking - dress comfortably so you can enjoy everything).  We will enjoy an included lunch in Niagara Falls before we depart the area for home. (L)

Terms and Conditions:

PAYMENT:
For overnight tours, the deposit is based on the cost of the tour as follows:
  • Overnight Tours Under $150 > $25 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours $150-$800 > $75 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours $801-$1,500 > $100 Deposit
  • Overnight Tours over $1,501 > $250 Deposit
The balance of an overnight tour is due 30 days prior to departure (unless otherwise notified). A confirmation will be sent to you after we receive your deposit. 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.

REFUNDS:
Up to 30 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 30 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.

CANCELED TOURS:
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.

TRANSPORTATION:
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. Also, on air trips with low passenger counts, we may not be able to provide an escort from our company. However, we will provide airport transportation*, plus a guide from our connecting company will meet you upon arrival at your destination and be with you throughout the entire tour. (*If only a few are going on a given air tour, we will pay your airport parking fee in lieu of using the coach.)

LODGING:
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.

LUGGAGE:
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.

TAXES AND GRATUITIES:
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.

SEATING:
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.

SMOKING:
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.

RESPONSIBILITY:
Gad-About Tours, Inc. is bonded, insured, and registered with the ICC, number MC 198451. We act only as agents and are not responsible to any person for any loss of time or money due to a change or delay beyond our control. Nor are we responsible for non-performance by those we have contracted with. Any claims against Gad-About Tours Inc. must be made, in writing, within 30 days of the trip.
