Journey Through Biblical History
"Without Leaving the U.S.!"
This tour package can be operated for your pre-formed group. A minimum of 30 full-fare guests is required. This tour can be operated originating in Orlando and ending in D.C., or it can originate in D.C. and end in Orlando. However, due to some of the sites or restaurants being closed on Sunday and or Monday, the Orlando to D.C. tour must depart on a Monday. The D.C. to Orlando tour must depart on a Thursday.
The rate for most departure dates is $1,799 per person, double occupancy. (Add a $500 premium for a single room.) However, if the tour departs during a peak season, the rate could increase significantly more. The Group Leader will receive one complimentary package.
It is the group organizer’s responsibility to collect all payments and to pay the deposit and full payments with one check. The check should be mailed to reach GateWay Tours by the Deposit Due Date and the Final Payment Due Date, respectively.
This is a land only package, but airport transfers will be provided for your group. Your flights should arrive at the appropriate airport no later than 4:00pm.
For the comfort of the passengers, we request that your groups be limited to no more than 42 passengers.
This tour has been designed so that individuals wanting to come earlier to visit local sites on their own can. For example, they may want to arrive in Orlando on a Friday before joining the group on Monday, so they can visit Disney World. Or they may want to spend more days in Washington DC to visit the Smithsonian museums and other sites in the City on their own. However, it will be up to the individuals to make those arrangements.
The hotels we use in Orlando provide free shuttles to the Disney Properties, but not airport transfers. However, they will provide the phone number for local taxi’s or Uber. The hotels we use in the D.C. area provide airport shuttle to Dulles International Airport.
A group deposit of $500 must be received 60 days from the group booking along with an update on the number of reservations booked.
The final payment for the group is due 75 days prior to trip departure.
If the entire group reservation is cancelled by 75 days prior to trip departure, there will be no penalty. If the entire group cancels within 75 days of trip departure, there will be a $500 penalty.
If an individual cancels 75 days or more prior to trip departure, there will be no penalty. However, if a roommate isn’t added for the remaining guest, that guest will have to pay the $500 premium for the single room. If an individual cancels within 75 days of trip departure, there will be a $250 penalty plus any non-recoverable expenses, if any.
