"<br />

Rush of Excitement"<br />

Dear travel friends,<br />

Have you ever had a rush of excitement that suddenly makes you go<br />

“Wow, look at that!” Your heart pounds faster, your mind is spinning to<br />

comprehend, and you might even hold your breath.<br />

This happened to me recently when I visited the Rocky Mountain National<br />

Park in Colorado. My wife and I took the old Fall River Road, a winding,<br />

dirt packed one lane road to the top of the continental divide. Near the<br />

top we stopped to take in the beauty. I pulled out my binoculars and<br />

there it was-that rush of excitement.<br />

It was a herd of elk grazing on a steep-grass covered slope at 12,000<br />

feet. And I was excited. Not a typical sight in my normal day to day life.<br />

They were fascinating to watch.<br />

Discovering something new, something unexpected, or something in<br />

nature will do that to most people. And that is what we hope you’ll<br />

experience on an <strong>Allied</strong> tour.<br />

For <strong>2019</strong> we have ten new tours to make your heart beat faster. Rain<br />

forests in Costa Rica, the ocean waves pounding on the Oregon coast,<br />

or gliding down the romantic Rhine River on our river cruise will all move<br />

your spirit and inspire your soul.<br />

The <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong> Experience<br />

Rocky mountains, coastal waterways, forested hillsides, and Spanish<br />

moss- you’ll see this and many other unforgettable sights on an <strong>Allied</strong><br />

tour. Have you smelled azaleas in the spring, or mountain pine trees<br />

recently? When was the last time you took a cooking class? Never<br />

been on a helicopter? How about rafting down a river? These are just<br />

some of the invigorating experiences you’ll have with <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong>s.<br />

Free Time and Food<br />

Our <strong>Travel</strong>ers Say it Best!<br />

Ladies Only Getaway<br />

"I have never been on a bus tour<br />

and really enjoyed this trip with<br />

my mom and three of her very<br />

dear high school friends. Our<br />

driver and tour director were<br />

amazing!"<br />

– Jen S., Gering, NE<br />

Do you like to have some time to explore on your own? Many tours<br />

include free time to check out some quaint local shops, stroll to some<br />

scenic outlooks, or have coffee and snacks with the locals. On some<br />

tours you’ll enjoy ‘Optional’ excursions where you will be able to<br />

choose from two or more attractions or activities to suit your interests.<br />

"It’s just more fun this way!”<br />

"This was my first bus tour of this<br />

type - and won't be my last. Loved<br />

getting dropped off & picked up at<br />

the door!"<br />

– Lynda W., Charter Oak, IA<br />

MagnoliaMarket.com<br />

Let’s talk about food. Half the fun of taking a tour, let’s face it, is eating.<br />

At <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong>s we search out local restaurants when lunch or dinner is<br />

included in the tour. We want you to taste your way through your tour<br />

as well as experiencing interesting attractions. You will have more fun<br />

discovering the food of the “locals” on an <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong>.<br />

Step-on-Guides Make <strong>Travel</strong> Interesting<br />

<strong>Allied</strong> taps the expertise of local step-on guides on most tours! These<br />

guides bring a wealth of knowledge and insight into the local area<br />

and enhance your travel experience. You will hear the stories and<br />

history that make the area you are visiting come alive. We even take<br />

care of the guide gratuity for you!<br />

Meticulously Time Itineraries<br />

An important aspect of group travel is the timing of each day’s<br />

activities. At <strong>Allied</strong> we take time to make sure your tour runs like clockwork.<br />

Early morning check-outs or late check-ins are a rarity. Also, we<br />

allow enough time at the attractions for you to feel like you have seen<br />

what you want to see. Timing is one of those things that you don’t know<br />

you’ve missed until it is missing. Experience an <strong>Allied</strong> tour and you’ll<br />

see the difference what good timing makes!<br />

Florida Winter Getaway<br />

New Orleans & the Deep South<br />

"Well planned. Info provided made<br />

it easy to venture on own in New<br />

Orleans. Love the organization<br />

and wide variety. I love the step-on<br />

guides – they give local info and<br />

make the tour memorable. Stepon<br />

guides set <strong>Allied</strong> apart from<br />

other tours I have been on. The<br />

Ultra Coach is worth paying more,<br />

especially on longer tours. "<br />

– Linda H., Blair, NE<br />

"This was our 5th tour with<br />

<strong>Allied</strong>. We are looking<br />

forward to many more. They<br />

just keep getting better &<br />

better. We had a great time."<br />

– Larry & Mary W.,<br />

Lincoln, NE<br />

Live and Online <strong>Travel</strong> Shows<br />

An <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong> Exclusive!<br />

We have two ways you can experience travel the <strong>Allied</strong> way; live and<br />

in person travel shows and our online webinars. Each is personally<br />

narrated by <strong>Allied</strong> staff and provides in-depth information and<br />

beautiful images on the many tours available. The best part is that both<br />

are FREE. To receive an invitation by email for either the live or online<br />

show, email your email address to: <strong>Allied</strong>@<strong>Allied</strong>TT.com.<br />

We would love to meet you in person or online.<br />

Say “aloha” to a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. Visit<br />

four islands in seven days, including overnight stays in<br />

each & every day of your cruise. The Pride of America<br />

will welcome you aboard with a casual “island” vibe<br />

that reflects the laid-back Hawaiian culture. Formal<br />

night on the Pride of America means a Hawaiian shirt<br />

or sundress. And NCL’s “freestyle” cruising means<br />

there are no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating.<br />

<strong>Travel</strong>er Conduct & Special Needs<br />

friendly and cooperative. <strong>Allied</strong> reserves the right to accept or decline<br />

any passenger on any tour if <strong>Allied</strong> <strong>Tour</strong> determines a passenger would<br />

be detrimental to the tour. Once a tour departs, any passenger disruptive<br />

to the group may be asked to leave the tour. Expenses to return home<br />

would be the responsibility of the passenger. No refunds will be issued<br />

for unused portions of the tour.<br />

make all reasonable efforts to assist with your travel arrangements.<br />

However, it is strongly recommended that a traveling companion come<br />

tour directors have responsibilities for the entire group and can’t provide<br />

one-on-one care. This includes boarding of motor coaches, airplanes,<br />

cruise ships, etc. and traversing hotels, restaurants, attractions, or other<br />

personal needs, etc. Contact <strong>Allied</strong> if you have any questions.<br />

What to Know Before You Go<br />

<strong>Travel</strong> Insurance<br />

We highly recommend travel insurance to protect your payments from<br />

cancellation fees. Your trip investment is worth protecting, and travel<br />

insurance is the best way to safeguard against unexpected events<br />

that can prevent you from traveling and being assessed significant<br />

cancellation fees. Contact <strong>Allied</strong> for travel insurance information.<br />

Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP)<br />

(Motor Coach <strong>Tour</strong>s Only)<br />

Your payments can be protected from cancellation charges for a<br />

nominal fee when traveling on one of our motor coach tours. The CPP<br />

must be purchased prior to or at final payment. For complete plan<br />

information please contact <strong>Allied</strong> or your local travel agent.<br />

Baggage Allowance<br />

Portage for one suitcase (per person) is included in the tour price.<br />

Due to limited motor coach capacity, your single bag should have<br />

dimensions not exceeding 30”x21”x11” and weigh no more than 50<br />

lbs. Small carry-on bags are allowed and are your responsibility.<br />

Most airlines assess a baggage fee. This fee is not included in the tour<br />

price and is paid for at airport check-in.<br />

Changes in <strong>Tour</strong> Price<br />

<strong>Tour</strong> prices in this publication are effective as of October 1, 2018<br />

deemed necessary by current currency, fuel price conditions, taxes,<br />
