Tour Dates & Pricing
Indulge yourself on a nine-day getaway to Central Florida and unpack just once in a well-appointed hotel in the Orlando area. Our accommodations are the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando – North with plenty of shops, restaurants, and scenic walks nearby.

This getaway strikes the perfect balance between scheduled activities and time at leisure to explore Orlando on our own or simply unwind at our relaxing hotel.
Day 1 : Fly to Orlando
Day 2 : Daytona Beach
Our morning begins with a decadent visit to Angell and Phelps Chocolate where we will take a tour through the factory and sample the famous chocolate.
Then, step back in time as we explore the Ponce De Leon Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. Ascend to the top for 175-foot views of the “World’s Most Famous Beach” or spend time exploring the maritime artifacts in the keeper’s dwellings.
After lunch, we speed things up at the Daytona 500 Speedway. Climb aboard an open-air tram and feel the rush of being on the speedway before learning about all forms of motorsports at the Motorsports Hall of Fame Museum.
Our evening is free to explore the area.
Day 3 : Kennedy Space Center
Blast off to the Kennedy Space Center, “The Greatest Space Adventure on Earth!” We’ll begin our adventurous day with a private tour including the Apollo/Saturn V Center. Your admission includes the Space Shuttle Launch Experience, Heroes and Legends exhibit featuring the Astronaut Hall of Fame, Journey to Mars: Explorers Wanted, the Astronaut Encounter, IMAX Theater, and much more.
Lunch today is sure to be a memorable experience as we enjoy a chef-prepared meal with a NASA veteran astronaut. Take time to ask questions and learn more about the space program from first-hand experience.
We arrive back at the hotel with time to enjoy the Evening Reception with our fellow travelers.
Day 4 : St. Johns River Cruise
This morning we visit the DeBary Hall Historic Site. We’ll learn fascinating history and entertaining stories about the exquisite 19th century Victorian hunting estate overlooking the St. Johns River. Some of the country’s wealthiest people spent their winters hunting and fishing nearby or relaxing under the cool verandah.
Afternoon brings us to the shores of the St. Johns River, where we board a catamaran in search of alligators, manatees, and a myriad of bird species. Learn about the original indigenous people and the impact of European explorers as we navigate areas of the river unchanged from the days of the early explorers.
Day 5 : Winter Garden
No trip to Florida is complete without a taste of citrus. Today we enjoy a unique experience aboard a giant four-wheel drive monster truck and explore a 2,500-acre Citrus & Cattle Ranch Estate. Learn about native and non-native trees, plants, and wildlife as we explore pastureland, groveland, and swampland. After, we will spend some time at the Old Time Farm Store & Market, brimming with jams, honey, and other enticing treats.
This afternoon we take in a performance of the award-winning folk musical "Violet" at the historic Garden Theater. The script tells the poignant story of a young woman’s plight to find the true meaning of beauty.
We bid goodbye to the beautiful Mediterranean Revival-style theater and enjoy a spectacular dinner at Bahama Breeze near our hotel.
Day 6 : Leisure Day
After breakfast the day is yours for individual pursuits. Relax and enjoy time at the hotel pool or perhaps stretch your legs on the scenic Cranes Roost Lake boardwalk. If you’re feeling adventurous, your Tour Director will have lots of ideas to get out and discover the Orlando area.
Day 7 : St. Augustine
Founded by Spanish explorers in 1565, St. Augustine lays claim as the oldest city in the U.S. Board a hop-on-hop-off trolley and enjoy entertaining narration as you learn about the captivating history of the area at your leisure. Your ticket includes admission to various sites such as the St. Augustine History Museum, Old Jail Museum, and Old Store Museum. Your trip to St. Augustine would not be complete without a visit to the Fountain of Youth where it is said the water restores youth to anyone who drinks or bathes in it.
Day 8 : SeaWorld
We’ll spend our last day in Central Florida splashing around at SeaWorld. Immerse yourself in aquatic exhibits, exhilarating rides, and awe-inspiring shows. Transport yourself to Antarctica and discover the world through the eyes of a penguin at Empire of the Penguin. Clyde and Seamore’s Sea Lion High™ show will leave you in stitches. Experience the power and agility of killer whales at the Shamu® show One Ocean®.
Tonight, we will reminisce in true Holiday Vacations style at a festive Farewell Dinner.
