We have lots of TAP news this month, and I'll be heading to Kansas City later this month to learn about even more exciting new tours and events we will be able to offer in the coming months.  Stay tuned, and we'll see you on the trail!

The Ultimate Patriotic Tour and Parade they never got!

April 15-18, 2013


TAP's second SpecTAPular Event will be in Pigeon Forge, TN this April.  Whether you are a Vietnam Veteran, a family member or a patriotic citizen, this celebration in the Smoky Mountain town of Pigeon Forge is a once-in-a-lifetime event you won't want to miss. Star-studded concerts and celebrities include Adrian Cronauer, the Voice of Armed Forces Radio, made famous by the hit film, Good Morning Vietnam, singer/songwriter James Rogers, country-pop star T.G. Sheppard, and Aaron Tippin who performed with the Bob Hope USO show during Desert Storm and has been entertaining America's fighting forces ever since.   


TAP Travel Guide
The 33 partners of TAP are busting our buttons over the recent release of Group Travel Leader's beautiful travel guide featuring TAP tour products and TAP Partners. Our unique business model is sometimes difficult to describe, but this might help you to understand that we are able to offer you such a wide range of destinations and interests because we are each experts in our respective locations and specialty fields of travel.  Let us know if you see something you like.  We'd love to help make your travel dreams come true!

Aug. 2-17, 2013 

In September we announced that we would head out on the trail again if we could get a minimum of 15 intrepid souls to sign on.  Well, we are nearly half-way there!  Seven modern-day explorers have already signed up for this most unique American journey.  Will you be the one to put us over the top?

October 20-25, 2013


Our congratuations go out to all the folks in Virginia Beach who combined to make TAP's very first SpecTAPular Event a huge success.  If you missed it this year, we'll be doing it again next October.  Not only will you have a great time but you'll be helping out the USO of Hampton Roads. 
What If?


What if
The explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark logged over 8,000 miles on their epic journey, "discovering" and logging 178 plants and 122 animals previously unknown to Euro-Americans.  They did not find the Northwest Passage - a huge disappointment to President Jefferson - but they did pave the way for others to make their way West.  What if they hadn't returned?
Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
