"

Rush of Excitement"

Dear travel friends,

Have you ever had a rush of excitement that suddenly makes you go

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

comprehend, and you might even hold your breath.

This happened to me recently when I visited the Rocky Mountain National

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

dirt packed one lane road to the top of the continental divide. Near the

top we stopped to take in the beauty. I pulled out my binoculars and

there it was-that rush of excitement.

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

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

They were fascinating to watch.

Discovering something new, something unexpected, or something in

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

experience on an Allied tour.

For 2019 we have ten new tours to make your heart beat faster. Rain

forests in Costa Rica, the ocean waves pounding on the Oregon coast,

or gliding down the romantic Rhine River on our river cruise will all move

your spirit and inspire your soul.

The Allied Tour Experience

Rocky mountains, coastal waterways, forested hillsides, and Spanish

moss- you’ll see this and many other unforgettable sights on an Allied

tour. Have you smelled azaleas in the spring, or mountain pine trees

recently? When was the last time you took a cooking class? Never

been on a helicopter? How about rafting down a river? These are just

some of the invigorating experiences you’ll have with Allied Tours.

Free Time and Food

Our Travelers Say it Best!

Ladies Only Getaway

"I have never been on a bus tour

and really enjoyed this trip with

my mom and three of her very

dear high school friends. Our

driver and tour director were

amazing!"

– Jen S., Gering, NE

Do you like to have some time to explore on your own? Many tours

include free time to check out some quaint local shops, stroll to some

scenic outlooks, or have coffee and snacks with the locals. On some

tours you’ll enjoy ‘Optional’ excursions where you will be able to

choose from two or more attractions or activities to suit your interests.

"It’s just more fun this way!”

"This was my first bus tour of this

type - and won't be my last. Loved

getting dropped off & picked up at

the door!"

– Lynda W., Charter Oak, IA

MagnoliaMarket.com

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

At Allied Tours we search out local restaurants when lunch or dinner is

included in the tour. We want you to taste your way through your tour

as well as experiencing interesting attractions. You will have more fun

discovering the food of the “locals” on an Allied Tour.

Step-on-Guides Make Travel Interesting

Allied taps the expertise of local step-on guides on most tours! These

guides bring a wealth of knowledge and insight into the local area

and enhance your travel experience. You will hear the stories and

history that make the area you are visiting come alive. We even take

care of the guide gratuity for you!

Meticulously Time Itineraries

An important aspect of group travel is the timing of each day’s

activities. At Allied we take time to make sure your tour runs like clockwork.

Early morning check-outs or late check-ins are a rarity. Also, we

allow enough time at the attractions for you to feel like you have seen

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

you’ve missed until it is missing. Experience an Allied tour and you’ll

see the difference what good timing makes!

Florida Winter Getaway

New Orleans & the Deep South

"Well planned. Info provided made

it easy to venture on own in New

Orleans. Love the organization

and wide variety. I love the step-on

guides – they give local info and

make the tour memorable. Stepon

guides set Allied apart from

other tours I have been on. The

Ultra Coach is worth paying more,

especially on longer tours. "

– Linda H., Blair, NE

"This was our 5th tour with

Allied. We are looking

forward to many more. They

just keep getting better &

better. We had a great time."

– Larry & Mary W.,

Lincoln, NE

Live and Online Travel Shows

An Allied Tour Exclusive!

We have two ways you can experience travel the Allied way; live and

in person travel shows and our online webinars. Each is personally

narrated by Allied staff and provides in-depth information and

beautiful images on the many tours available. The best part is that both

are FREE. To receive an invitation by email for either the live or online

show, email your email address to: Allied@AlliedTT.com.

We would love to meet you in person or online.

Canyonlands & National Parks

canyonlandsbynight.com

"The entire trip

exceeded my

expectations! We had

adequate time in each

National Park. We

loved Zion! I didn't

feel rushed. Our tour

director was great

about providing water

& snacks."

Aboard NCL’s Pride of America

Say “aloha” to a wonderful vacation in Hawaii. Visit

four islands in seven days, including overnight stays in

Maui and Kauai, which means you are on an island

each & every day of your cruise. The Pride of America

will welcome you aboard with a casual “island” vibe

that reflects the laid-back Hawaiian culture. Formal

night on the Pride of America means a Hawaiian shirt

or sundress. And NCL’s “freestyle” cruising means

there are no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating.

Feb. 14, 2019: Pre-departure package is included in

the tour rate. This includes shuttles and pre-departure

overnight accommodations in Omaha.

DAY 1 | Oahu

airport for our flight to Honolulu on the island of Oahu,

one of the single most dreamed of vacation spots in the

world! Tonight we will stay on Waikiki Beach.

beautiful island of Maui. You’ll have lots of optional

shore excursions to choose from for your next two days

volcano and a must-see natural wonder. Picturesque

Traveler Conduct & Special Needs

Tours are fun, but the enjoyment of the tour is based on everyone being

friendly and cooperative. Allied reserves the right to accept or decline

any passenger on any tour if Allied Tour determines a passenger would

be detrimental to the tour. Once a tour departs, any passenger disruptive

to the group may be asked to leave the tour. Expenses to return home

would be the responsibility of the passenger. No refunds will be issued

for unused portions of the tour.

Please notify us of any special needs at the time of reservation. We will

make all reasonable efforts to assist with your travel arrangements.

However, it is strongly recommended that a traveling companion come

along to help with any special needs of anyone with a disability. Allied’s

tour directors have responsibilities for the entire group and can’t provide

one-on-one care. This includes boarding of motor coaches, airplanes,

cruise ships, etc. and traversing hotels, restaurants, attractions, or other

personal needs, etc. Contact Allied if you have any questions.

Single Travelers

Single travelers are guaranteed one seat on the motor coach and may

be seated next to another traveler if the tour is full.

Inspiration & Faith

Due to tour schedules, we are unable to make any special provisions for

worship services. Many tour directors share a “Thought for the Day,”

verses of inspiration, or a short prayer to start the day.

What to Know Before You Go

Travel Insurance

We highly recommend travel insurance to protect your payments from

cancellation fees. Your trip investment is worth protecting, and travel

insurance is the best way to safeguard against unexpected events

that can prevent you from traveling and being assessed significant

cancellation fees. Contact Allied for travel insurance information.

Cancellation Protection Plan (CPP)

(Motor Coach Tours Only)

Your payments can be protected from cancellation charges for a

nominal fee when traveling on one of our motor coach tours. The CPP

must be purchased prior to or at final payment. For complete plan

information please contact Allied or your local travel agent.

Baggage Allowance

Portage for one suitcase (per person) is included in the tour price.

Due to limited motor coach capacity, your single bag should have

dimensions not exceeding 30”x21”x11” and weigh no more than 50

lbs. Small carry-on bags are allowed and are your responsibility.

Most airlines assess a baggage fee. This fee is not included in the tour

price and is paid for at airport check-in.

Changes in Tour Price

Tour prices in this publication are effective as of October 1, 2018

and subject to fluctuation due to the U.S. dollar exchange rates and

energy rates. Our best effort has been made to publish this information

as accurately as possible. The right is reserved to change tour rates as

deemed necessary by current currency, fuel price conditions, taxes,

etc. Due to the volatility of airfares and flight schedules, tours utilizing

air transportation are subject to change both in price and routing.

Submitting your deposit is an acknowledgment of your agreement

to these terms.

Documentation for International Travel
