September 14 – We will travel to Wilkes Barre, PA with arrival this afternoon to check in at our lovely hotel conveniently located near the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs. During our stay, you will have free time to enjoy the Oktoberfest at Mohegan Sun today and tonight as you wish. The Mohegan Sun has been recreating the popular Oktoberfest celebration that is held every year in Munich, Germany and has been attracting 40,000 people each year. This world-class event is held on the track of the Pocono Downs Racetrack at the Mohegan Sun Casino filled with tents, traditional German foods, authentic entertainment along with various drinks and lots of different kinds of beers. At time of print, the exact entertainment performers were not yet announced although last year’s line-up included various German singers, Bavaria dancers, and a 10-piece Austrian band to name a few. No corners are cut and you should expect PA Oktoberfest to be a world-class event as authentic and extraordinary as the real thing. Your package includes admission to the Oktoberfest grounds to enjoy everything the festival has to offer. Although food and drink purchases are on your own, they normally have lots of beer sampling throughout. You must be age 21 to participate in the festival) In addition, you will have the freedom to visit between the Oktoberfest grounds and the Mohegan Sun Casino during your stay today and tonight. (They normally provide a wristband to allow you to come and go). At time of print, the casino was also offering a $10.00 slot voucher to all visitors (subject to change by the casino and beyond our control). Please note: The Oktoberfest festivities are held outside on the racetrack grounds in various tents shielded from the weather, but please dress appropriately so you can enjoy everything.
September 15 – Breakfast is included at our hotel this morning. Enjoy a leisure morning after a late evening. There will be more free time to enjoy the Mohegan Sun Casino as you wish with departure for home about 1:00 PM today. (B)

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.
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. 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.)
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.
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.
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.
