What can I expect from my guided tour vacation?
Staff Guidance and Supervision
The Guided Tour staff are paid professionals in the human services field. Many of our staff are social workers, therapeutic recreators, and direct care personnel, and have been with our program for 15-20 years. Our staff will oversee daily living skills, medications, money management and help the travelers have an amazing and safe vacation. We have a nurse on the majority of our vacations.
The majority of our vacations are by plane. We also have van/bus trips. Our van trips originate in Philadelphia and we pick up travelers at pre-set locations en-route to our destination.
The prices of flights are included based on departure and return from Philadelphia. Our travelers come from all over the United States (as well as other countries) and prices are adjusted based on the cost differential (if any) between departing from Philadelphia and whatever city the traveler chooses to depart form.
Transportation is provided to all destinations we serve. The exception is our seashore program, where persons travel by car, train, casino bus or plane. Our staff is waiting to meet travelers at their arrival point.
