Dan O'Donnell's Family Adventure – Washington, DC

My Family Adventure series moves to our nation’s capital! There is so much to do and see in Washington, DC, a city that has been changing dramatically in recent years. And this is the perfect way to experience it! We’ll be staying right in the heart of it all, just steps from the White House and close to all of the famous memorials and museums. We’ll see all of the iconic sites, learn lots of history and, of course, enjoy some good food, all in the company of fellow WISN listeners. It’s going to be a blast for the whole family. But hurry – space is limited!

I went on Jay Weber's Great Escape to NYC. This was my first experience with Cruise & Tour. It was wonderful from start to finish. The trip was very well planned and organized. Our tour guides were very experienced, knowledgeable, and fun. All of the staff from Cruise & Tour were great. Fabulous trip.
