With today’s Groupon, relive the excitement of charter-bus band trips without the hand checks and spit valves. For $30, you get a comfortable roundtrip ride to New York City in a luxury charter bus from Superior Tours (up to a $60 value). Take a leisurely stroll around Rockefeller Center, or shop yourself into oblivion and let someone else drive you home. Your Groupon is valid for same-day adventures only, meaning that Baltimore will stay frozen for a full day until your return. Day trips are a fun way to enjoy the weekend when you can't take extra days off, and letting someone else do the driving frees you up to work on your latest knitting project or crack open a page-turning Kindle. The friendly folks at Superior Tours will pick you up at any of three convenient Baltimore locations and drop you off in the center of the action at Times Square and Rockefeller Center. Your approximately three-hour-and-fifteen-minute trip leaves between 6:15 a.m. and 7:30 a.m., depending on day and departure locale, so you'll have a full day of Big Apple bliss. Enjoy a smooth ride several feet off the ground in your towering luxury charter bus, with comfortable arm and headrests for morning and evening nappers. Each return trip features an entertaining movie to watch for when you tire of staring at the colorful psychedelic upholstery and friendly attendants to answer your shopping queries and are-we-there-yets. Once you arrive, New York City will happily acquiesce to your every shopping and sightseeing desire. Stop in The Metropolitan Museum of Art or take in a matinee on Broadway to experience a little culture or hear songs about Spam. Ride the 60-foot indoor ferris wheel at Toys R Us or get personalized chocolate kisses from Hershey's Times Square, which make a delectable and thoughtful gift or hilariously cruel inside joke for your Fourth of July party. However you choose to spend your day trip, Superior Tours will be waiting to get you home safely. Check the website for pick up times and locations.
When Superior Tours looks for new drivers, it wants polite, reliable, and personable people, and it doesn't even consider those with fewer than five years of experience. Its drivers all work only for Superior Tours so that they can be on time and well rested for each trip. Luxury, 54-passenger motorcoaches pick up groups from the airport, ferry people to New York City for a day of urban exploration, or steer toward Atlantic City where passengers can hit the slots. The company also programs charter trips for corporate outings, church trips, and charter-bus-of-the-month clubs.
