Dear Fellow Traveler,

In response to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic:

If you are scheduled to take a tour between now and May 10th, all tours have been postponed. These are all postponed due to government mandates and through no fault of Group Tours & Travel.

As of now all tours after May 10th are still on schedule.

We will be monitoring all government mandates week by week and tour by tour and our voice message and the web site will be updated as often as needed.

If you wish to book a tour or take out travel protection for a future tour please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.

All tour credits will be automatically mailed out to you so there is no need to leave us a message. Getting things out to you may take several weeks. Our main objective is for client’s health and safety.

Also, we are now only receiving mail and sending mail once a week, so please be patient. Thank you for your patience, loyalty and understanding in this matter.

Group Tours employees are working limited hours, so we are not always available to answer phones.

Remember, be understanding and be very kind to each other in these trying times. Sincerely,

Group Tours & Travel LLC

Mixing Fun and Education for Class Trips

At our travel agency, we serve the travel needs of all types of groups--not least of which are school groups. Last year, we helped more than 1,000 students and chaperones learn more about the areas they traveled in.

When you book a trip with us, you don’t get a boring ride from Point A to Point B. Instead, you and your students get to learn about the history of the area in a truly engaging and immersive way. With our group tours, your students will enjoy the journey just as much as the destination.

TRAVEL IN COMFORT AND STYLE

For more than three decades, our travel company has been escorting tours of locals and visitors throughout the area. We not only do bus tours that show you local history but also lead you on excursions that you won’t soon forget.

In addition to local group tours, we also book trips to more exotic locations all over the world. Our tour guides are happy to take you to 40 states throughout the country, as well as Canada, Great Britain, and other fun places. Best of all, no matter which tour you book, you get the benefit of not having to plan the details and, instead, you can just relax and let us take care of the travel plans.

All of our tours are escorted, which means you have the benefit of having an expert with you to answer questions and give suggestions about the best places to shop and eat. Our deluxe motor coaches ensure you are comfortable on your journey, so you’re well-rested once we reach each destination.

When traveling outside of the Metropolitan New York and New Jersey areas, our tours include round-trip airfare. You may make your own flight arrangements. Simply let us know, and we’ll deduct the flight price from the cost of your tour. Our travel agents are also happy to book other arrival or departure dates for you if you’d like to extend your trip.
