Grand Tour Travel Program

“The Grand Tour Travel Program has become an important part of my life. It gives me the opportunity to experience travel that I would not do on my own, and takes the worry out of planning – it is all done for me. I simply pack and go. The trips, the people, and the staff are all delightful.”

—David B. Oliveira from Palm Harbor, Florida

Through our Grand Tour Travel Program, FRHS members enjoy special travel opportunities including daytime bus trips, weekend tours, and overseas travel to cultural destinations. All tours are led by an experienced travel coordinator and a museum staff member and/or an expert in the field.
