What's included on our senior bus tours

Go Ahead hotels

The comfiest hotels

We think that where you stay is as big a part of your tour experience as the historical sites, cultural attractions, and stunning natural scenery you’ll encounter along the way. (Plus, we want to make sure you’re plenty rested for each day’s new adventure.) Throughout your tour, you’ll rest your head in some seriously stylish, impeccably clean hotels—many with stories of their own to tell.


Full-service flights to and from your tour

When you travel with us, you can book your own flights to and from tour or enjoy the perks that come with letting our pros take the reins. We partner with top airlines to secure your flights at competitive rates, and we arrange airport transfers for your on-tour arrival and departure. If your Go Ahead-booked flight is canceled, we’ll help get you on a new one.


Top-notch transportation

For us, how you get from Point A to Point B on your trip is as important as what you’ll do when you get there. On tour, you’ll travel by private, chauffeured luxury coach, national or regional rail systems, ferry, or air. Or, on some of our itineraries, a combination. (You lucky explorer, you!)


Anything-but-ordinary meals

On tour, you’ll bond with your fellow travelers over meals in unique settings, whether that means lunching at an Italian agriturismo, feasting on mezze in a Turkish tavern, or warming up with a bowl of tangy tomato soup inside an Icelandic greenhouse. And did we mention the velvety wines, crisp beers, and tongue-tingling spirits you can pair it all with?

What senior travelers say about our tours

Australia and New Zealand....trip of a lifetime
Sharon, 5-time traveler
"Australia and New Zealand brought me new friends and acquaintances, and new experiences and knowledge of other cultures I've never really known before. age 78 I decided to try the bungee chair swing over the Nevis Canyon in Queenstown, New Zealand."

Breathtaking experience
Cathy M., 2-time traveler
What a wonderful and inspiring experience! Stevyn, our tour director, was without a doubt the most experienced of directors. He made sure we captured every majestic view at every turn. Too much to see to nap on a 2,000 + mile tour. The hotels, food, rest stops were great.
