Leisure Group Travel’s third annual Group Itinerary Planning Guide, loaded with sample itineraries and other ideas for tour organizers, dominates the June issue of the magazine.
In this special planner edition, divided into regional sections, you’ll find the largest selection of sample trips in the market today. Destinations across North America, from Eastern Canada to the Pacific Northwest, are represented. Supplementing the itinerary coverage are regional features on group-friendly holiday attractions, light festivals and other jolly events. In our On the Record column, readers chip in with their own ideas for brightening up itineraries.
Train travel is another subject that gets special attention in the June issue. Guest columnist Jim Wrinn, a train expert, looks at special holiday and seasonal offerings from tourist railroads, suggesting that group planners consider Halloween, fall foliage and yuletide departures. The feature on Maryland’s historic railroads spotlights group-friendly excursion trains and museums that showcase the state’s rail heritage.
Group tour planners will find more inspiration in destination articles on Iowa, Oklahoma and Kentucky, plus insightful columns written by industry pros.
