Why Cruise & Tour

We love creating Worry-Free Group Travel Experiences. We actually kind of obsess about it because we know most people come to us after having had at least one really bad vacation. It starts with a call to our amazing customer relations team where all of your questions are answered and you feel really good about what you just purchased. It continues with frequent updates that have you feeling relaxed and prepared for your upcoming journey. As for the travel itself, just sit back and enjoy the experience. The details are covered by your group travel concierge.

We know you’re going to love the Like-Minded Travelers on your tour because they’re cut from the same rug as you. Believe us, we’ve heard the horror stories about being trapped on tour with a bunch of obnoxious people. Time and again, our travelers have met lifelong friends while on our trips.

We can’t wait to take you to the world’s Iconic Sites. The Taj Mahal, the Colosseum, the Great Wall of China, the list goes on and on. Their beauty and mystique defy logic and are often your motivation to travel. But we’re equally excited about showing you some Off the Beaten Path Treasures (the things that aren’t in the guide books and other companies don’t take the time to show you). Often, these are the experiences that you come home talking about.

It’s all about you. When you’re ready to experience travel that is actually worth it, give us a call at (800) 383-3131.

Meet Our Team

Peggy Crull - President & Founder

Company founder Peggy Crull began her career in the travel industry in 1969 and opened Downtown Travel, Inc. (now Cruise & Tour) in 1975. Peggy has taken Cruise & Tour clients on well over 200 cruises and land tours to destinations all over the world. It’s actually easier to list the places she has not been to (North Korea, Greenland, etc.) than the places she has. The thing she loves the most about this business? “Meeting people and showing them the wonders of the world!”

Charlie Crull - Vice President

Charlie officially joined the Cruise & Tour team in 2008 but likes to say that he has been interning for the job since the age of four. He has been fortunate enough to have traveled to all 7 continents, with his favorite place in the world being New Zealand. Charlie’s main responsibilities include group travel planning, business development, marketing and being the only one to wear flannel on Flannel Friday. Charlie resides in Durham, New Hampshire with his wife Maria and son George and enjoys coaching soccer, hiking, fishing and brewing beer in his free time.
