the Bluegrass State…

Our Old Kentucky Home is the place where the South, Appalachia and the Midwest all come together to meet and mingle. They introduced the mint julep and people around the world think of Kentucky whenever fried chicken comes up. Now is the time to take in a little BBQ or enter your own for the Chillin and Grillin competition we have planned for you. The accent is the Appalachian Twang, not the Southern Drawl, and they play basketball as good as the best flat-landed Midwesterner. Louisville is neither the Anglicanized “Louis-ville” nor the more French “Lou-ie-ville,” but simply “Lou-vull.”

Enjoy Mammoth Cave, the world’s longest cave, which is second only to Niagara Falls in tourism. Born within 100 miles of each other, but later historical adversaries, were Abraham Lincoln (Union President) and Jefferson Davis (confederate President) both of Kentucky. Visit Pike county, once the world’s largest producer of coal and famous for the Appalachian vendetta that lasted over a quarter of a decade by the Hatfield & McCoy feud. Board the life size replica of the Noah’s Ark – new this year. Also visit the largest historic community of its kind…Shaker Village. Eat a Hot brown sandwich created at the one and only Brown Hotel, see the world’s largest baseball bat, the world’s largest crucifix, and the Bourbon capital of the world and its festival. And did you know, Kentucky is known as the “Horse capital of the world”?

There are only three things that matter locally in the state of Kentucky – Bourbon, Basketball, and Horseracing. So come see the charm, beauty and immerse yourself in the many cultures across this Bluegrass State.

Come together to Meet and Mingle

    Wayne & Wendy Mikkelsen
  • “Excellent trip and leaders!”
    Len & Carole Adams
  • Regarding our 31-day Canadian Maritimes caravan Cindy and I would like to express how much we enjoyed the caravan with Rick & Sharon Gilbert and John & Sally Mincks. Both couples were outstanding and we would love to book any caravan they are involved with. We booked for the 2018 Big Sky caravan and hope you can assign one or both off them to that trip. We met many wonderful people and hope we have made some new life long friendships. We hope to meet up with Rick and Sharon at the Tampa RV show in January. The tour guides for our various bus tours were top notch, all added much information and interesting stories to the tour. Please give a big thanks to Roger in Quebec City, Roddie in PEI, Carolyn in Halifax and Paul on The Cabot Trail.

Experience Kentucky

  • “We learned so much! We definitely have a real appreciation for this wonderful excursion!”
    Bill & Carol Harrison
  • “I would recommend this type of Alaska experience to everyone!”
    Dale Jobe & Carol Colburn
  • “We enjoyed looking at the photos. I agree regarding the description of the Kaori Wildlife Sanctuary stop. In fact I would rate it as the high point of the entire Queensland / New Zealand tour. I am surprised to see other tours, even tours billed as "wildlife tours", that don't even make that stop.”
    Norm Day
  • “It was wonderful!  We have been to Alaska on a cruise before and thought we saw so much at that time. This tour provided so much more and we discovered there was more to see! Awesome trip, awesome Wagonmasters, and awesome Tailgunners!”
    Byron & Janet Warner
  • '...more than 15 years of retirement travel and this was our first real vacation!'
    Roger & Linda
  • “Four star, a wonderful time, we did so much, saw so much and made at least three couples as life-long friends.”
    Monte & Linda Toon
