When: September 4-8, 2015
Registration Deadline: May 31, 2015
We’re going back to New York City in September 2015! We plan to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, tour the Tenement Museum to see how early immigrants really lived, watch a Broadway play and explore Times Square, get great views of the city from the top of the Empire State Building, visit Ground Zero, tour the New Amsterdam Theater, and more! (This itinerary may change until prices for fall 2015 are finalized.)
The registration deadline is May 31, 2015, but seats are limited and early registrants will have a better chance of being confirmed.
How We’ll Get There
We’ll use chartered buses for this trip, starting and ending in Lancaster, SC. We’ll pick up families along the way in NC, VA, and MD. Families who don’t live along our route will need to arrange their own transportation to one of our pick-up points, or meet us at our hotel (car, plane, rail, whatever). Your cost will remain the same regardless of where you meet us since you’ll need your seats on the bus to tour the city.
Cost and What’s Included
Pricing for fall 2015 isn’t finalized yet, so these are best-guess estimates. Please register knowing that your final cost may be a little higher (or hopefully lower) than these estimates:
Family of 2: $2,000
Family of 3: $2,600
Family of 4: $3,200
Family of 5: $3,800
Family of 6: $4,400
For larger families, combine the prices above for an estimate. For example, a family of 7 would add the cost for a family of 4 to the cost for a family of 3 and that would be the estimate.
These estimates include your hotel for four nights, breakfast for each person in your room from Saturday through Tuesday, two group dinners, all admissions on our itinerary, and your seats on the bus for touring. It does not include other meals or anything else you do on your own.
Our hotel has two-room suites with two double beds, plus a full-size pull-out sofa (accommodating a maximum of 6, each family will have their own room). Rooms include a refrigerator and microwave.
Payment Terms and Schedule
A $50 per-person non-refundable deposit is due 7 days from the date I confirm your registration. An additional $300 per person is due by January 31, 2015. The balance is due by May 31, 2015.
Cancellations and Refund Policy
The $50 per person deposit is not refundable for any reason. The rest of your payments are refundable only if I have a family on my waiting list to replace you. No replacements, roster changes, or refunds will be made after May 31, 2015.
Your signed waiver and payment acknowledge that you understand and agree with my cancellation and refund policy.
This event may be cancelled if we don’t have enough participants to meet the minimum required. If it’s cancelled, you’ll receive a full refund.
If you plan to arrange your own transportation to our hotel, don’t purchase non-refundable airfare until I confirm the trip. The airlines have their own refund policies, and I have no control over payment and refunds.
