Christmastime at the Gaylord Grapevine

December 5, 2022 thru December 8, 2022

Grapevine, the Christmas Capital of Texas, is known for its restored 19th and 20th century buildings along Main Street and its many friendly faces. It’s home to artisans’ workshops, including a glassblowing studio, a tinsmith and a blacksmith. The Gaylord Texan Resort is built around a gorgeous atrium filled with plants and water features and its holiday decorations and exhibits are world renowned.  Add a concert from the Texas Tenors and we’ll be kicking off the Christmas season in style!

Day 1 - Grapevine, TX

We fly to DFW and board out deluxe motorcoach for the very short drive to Grapevine.  At Harvest Hall, we enjoy lunch at one of the many restaurants, then enjoy a view of the surrounding countryside from the top of the Grapevine Observation Tower. We explore the Christmas Village, visiting the many crafts booths and exhibits. We check into our home for 3 nights, the stunning Gaylord Texan Resort. (L)

Day 2 - Day of Fun

We start our day with a Behind the Scenes experience at Sea Life Aquarium, learning how the aquatic animals and fishes are managed and kept healthy in their homes far from the oceans. Many, if not all, the sea life here has been rescued after injury by collisions with boats.  After lunch, we enjoy a concert by the Texas Tenors, the most successful group of winners from America’s Got Talent. After a night-time stroll to enjoy the magical Christmas lights on Main Street, we enjoy dinner together.

Day 3 - Dallas Tour

Today we drive to Dallas for a city tour, including the Old Red Courthouse, JFK assassination site, Thanks-Giving Square, and the beautiful homes in Highland Park.  At the Dallas Arboretum, the spectacular 12 Days of Christmas Gardens display is waiting for us, full of sparkle and enchantment. This evening we are on our own, perhaps taking the free shuttle into Grapevine or viewing the ICE exhibit at the Gaylord.

Day 4 - Return Home

It is time to think about our return to Tucson, so we board our plane for the short ride home, filled with memories of a captivating start to our holiday season.

ITINERARY

For your reference, we send to you a detailed itinerary approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the scheduled tour departure. This has a day-by-day breakdown of times and events, and hotel information where you can be reached in case of an emergency.

The times listed on the itinerary are all approximate. We cannot be held responsible for schedule changes due to unforeseen circumstances with the weather, transportation agents, highway conditions, hotels or contracting agents.

EMERGENCY CONTACT

It is always a good idea to carry on your person a list of medications that you are taking and an emergency contact phone number while you are traveling. And we suggest making a copy of the itinerary and providing it to a friend or family member.

GRATUITIES/ITEMS INCLUDED IN PRICE

All hotel baggage handling fees are included. We also include basic gratuities for the Tour Director, Coach Driver, Livery Drivers and local Tour Guides. If someone has truly gone above and beyond additional tipping is permitted, but never required.
Hotel housekeeping tips are not included.

LIVERY

For your convenience, we have a (round-tour) door-to-door pickup service with each multi-day tour. (This service is not available to all clients depending on your location.) Approximately 2 to 3 days prior to the departure date you will receive a call from our office and we will tell you your assigned pickup time. (These times can vary up to 15 minutes depending on traffic.)

MOTORCOACH SEATING

With passenger health in mind, we are not currently offering daily seat rotation. You will have an assigned seat and boarding order to allow for social distancing among passengers. At booking let us know if you prefer Front, Middle or Back of motorcoach. Each section comprises 4 to 5 rows. We will try to accommodate all requests. If we are unable to honor all requests, preference will be given based on date of your tour deposit.

At time of booking or as soon as possible please notify us of mobility limitations or food allergies. We will forward these to restaurants and attractions as needed. Please also let us know if you have dietary preferences. We usually can accommodate vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free diets.

We pay close attention to your requests but please realize that these are merely requests and cannot be guaranteed.

The phone numbers of the hotel(s) where we are staying will be listed on the itinerary sent to you before the tour.

Many hotels around the country have instituted a "reconditioning fee" of $300 or more that is levied upon a guest that smokes in a non-smoking room. If this occurs during our tour you will be responsible for paying this fee to the hotel prior to check-out.
