Great News for 2012 England in Miniature Tour

We have some GREAT NEWS to report regarding our September 2012 England in Miniature Tour!

We had originally set the tour at a maximum number of 20 group members because we had booked a small, 28-passenger coach.

But Jeff Hoag from Journeys with Jeff, our tour arrangements company, has made the decision to move up to a larger, 35-passenger coach which means there will be plenty of room for luggage…and more passengers.

With all that extra space, we are delighted to increase the maximum number for this tour to 24 participants, and with 19 people currently registered for the fun, we now have room for 5 additional travelers.

The England in Miniature Tour will feature something for everyone — stately homes, beautiful gardens, fascinating museums, lots of free time for exploring and shopping, and some very special stops for those who love miniatures. We will spend three nights each in Penrith in the Lake District, York, and Stratford-upon-Avon, with arrival and last nights close to the Manchester and Birmingham airports. More details can be found here.

This 12-day tour (Sept.13-24) is priced at only $2,619 (land only, based on double occupancy). We have asked that all participants make plans to arrive at the Manchester International Airport in Manchester, England, by 9:30 AM on Thursday, Sept. 13.

Our deluxe coach from Bullocks Coaches will meet us at the Manchester Airport. For our arrival day, we have added a very special stop to the itinerary that is guaranteed to set the mood for a fabulous tour.
