Coach: The charter is Trobec Bus Co from St Stephens. These vehicles are state of art with comfortable seats, restroom seatbelts, new air filtration system, and fabulous drivers! Depending on the size of the group from central Minnesota, we may use a smaller van, mini-coach or a motor coach to connect with the Iron Range Group.
Special Requests: Kindly let us know if you have any special needs we should be aware of BEFORE we leave. We do not rotate seats on the coach. We assign seating and attempt to honor special need requests on a first come first serve basis. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requests. We also ask you to refrain from using perfumes / fragrances due to allergies.
Hotel: We have beautiful accommodations reserved for you. You won’t be disappointed.
How to pack and what to wear: You can pack one suitcase each (which is handled for you - including tip for the porter). You may also bring on board a carry-on bag. The tour is completely casual & comfortable however, it is winter. Be prepared for when you might be outdoors for a short time.
Staying Healthy/ Covid-19: We go above and beyond the call of duty to keep our groups healthy as they travel with us. The coach has a new air filtration system that circulates and purifies the air. At the end of each day, the bus is cleaned again. Throughout the tour, the driver and tour director also wipe the handrails down. There is hand sanitizer on-board and all are encouraged to use it. We follow all CDC guidelines and mandates for each state that we travel. You may be asked to wear a mask at various places we visit as well as while moving about the motorcoach. At this time, you do not have to show proof of vaccination on any of the HTT motor coach tours that travel throughout the United States and masks are optional except when boarding and disembarking. Keep in mind that may change. In late 2021, passengers are asked to sign a waiver form promising not to hold Happy Trails Tours or its affiliates responsible should you become ill with Covid during post pandemic times. We are also asking that you not board the coach when feeling ill.
Travel Protection Insurance: Travel Protection insurance is highly recommended. It can offer peace of mind and protect your investment from unforeseen events such as becoming ill, trip interruption or other kinds of emergencies. Travel Protection insurance does not cover “fear of travel”. They do offer a variety of products that may be a good fit for you. Such as; Cancel for Any Reason, which would reimburse you 50% of your trip cost. Let us know how we can help you with this.
