Daily Itinerary


On the first day, you will depart via bus, starting your overnight trip on your way to an exhilarating and history-packed three-city tour of Virginia.


Upon arrival in Richmond, you’ll meet your Tour Manager and head to your first stop.

The American Civil War Museum at Historic Tredegar is the nation’s first museum to interpret the Civil War from Union, Confederate, and African American perspectives. You’ll discover a new way of looking at national history that explains much of who we are as Americans today through the signature exhibit, In the Cause of Liberty.

Called “America’s Shakespeare,” Edgar Allan Poe mastered the short story, detective fiction, science fiction, lyric poetry and the horror story. His dark genius has invited children and adults to read and love literature for over 150 years. At Richmond’s Poe Museum, you’ll see the world’s finest collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s manuscripts, letters, first editions, memorabilia and personal belongings. The Poe Museum creates a window into early nineteenth century Richmond where Poe lived and worked by documenting his accomplishments through photographs, relics, and verse.

Next, you’ll take a guided tour of Yorktown Victory Center, a museum of the American Revolution that chronicles America’s evolution from colonial status to nationhood through a unique blend of thematic exhibits and outdoor living history.


This morning you’ll visit Historic Jamestown, an archaeological site and the actual site of the original colony. You’ll take a guided tour of Jamestown Settlement, where the story of the people who founded Jamestown and of the Virginia natives they encountered is told through film, gallery exhibits, and living history.

You’ll then take a three hour guided tour of Colonial Williamsburg. Here you’ll see the restored and reconstructed historic area of a small city that was founded in 1632 and eventually became a center of political activity during the American Revolution. Costumed guides will take you through the center of town and you’ll have a chance to experience colonial life. You’ll also have the opportunity to visit the Governor’s Palace and Museums.

This evening you’ll take a walking ghost tour, where your guide will lead you through the streets of Colonial Williamsburg by candlelight while sharing eerie and fun folklore of this very old city.


Today you’ll spend the day experiencing the adrenaline at Busch Gardens. Nestled in Williamsburg, Virginia, Busch Gardens is a theme park designed to evoke classic Europe, featuring meticulously landscaped villages reminiscent of the charming streets of Paris in France, quaint hamlets in Scotland, and the festive Oktoberfest celebrations of Germany. With a total of nine villages representing six countries, your exploration promises a captivating journey through diverse and artfully crafted European experiences!

This evening you will board your bus for your overnight trip home.


On the last day, you will leave Virginia and arrive back to your point of origin.
