Most tours offer convenient
pick-up points as noted on each itinerary (Geneseo, Henrietta &
Irondequoit), while some tours require the traveler to obtain his or her
own transportation to and parking at the Airport. Tours will
sometimes have alternate pick-up locations that will vary based on
registrations. Ten or more participants will guarantee a private pick-up
point (please call for additional details). In all cases, it is the
traveler's choice to board the coach at one of the pick-up points.
Free parking is available at each of our indicated pick-up points,
however, parking at the Airport is at the individual's expense (in
addition to the cost of the tour).
Specific seats on the motorcoach
cannot be reserved, however, requests due to medical concerns will be
accommodated as best as possible on a case-by-case basis.
