On the bus you can do whatever you've gotta do to pass the time and get your energy up for the killer weekend ahead; watch a movie, get in on a game of cards, listen to some music, or grab some shut-eye. Upon arrival, destination staff will hold a 20 minute briefing session on the bus, during which they'll introduce themselves and let you know about the program for the trip. Staff will review highlights of your destination, the facilities of your hotels, and all of the great tours and activities you can check out. This is your chance to ask questions, to review safety and insurance procedures, and to get yourself settled. After the briefing, you will be guided you through the check-in process quickly. And then...you’re free to explore!
