American Studies Field Trip

Wednesday, November 8, 2023  

We will meet in the Schnucks (formerly Shop ‘n Save) parking lot next to the car wash (800 Carlyle Ave, Belleville,  62221) at 3:30 PM and board the Vandalia bus. We will have two drivers for the trip, and they will switch at St.  Clairsville, OH on the outbound journey and Plainfield, IN on the return. We will stop for dinner along the way.  Bring your pillow!  

Thursday, November 9, 2023  

After a breakfast stop, we will visit the Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. Our expert guide will take us on a  park tour, then we will have free time to purchase lunch. When we arrive in Gettysburg, we will meet our  Gettysburg guide at the Gettysburg National Military Park. We will begin by watching the film, “A New Birth of  Freedom,” narrated by award winning actor Morgan Freeman. We will also see the restored Gettysburg  Cyclorama, which depicts “Pickett’s Charge,” and browse the museum. There will be a selection of food in the  Visitor Center, including some Civil War-era specialties. In the evening, we will dine at the Dobbin House where  we’ll have a buffet meal. We will also see a movie in the Battle Theatre about Abraham Lincoln, before checking  into the Quality Inn Gettysburg Battlefield Hotel. (Dinner)

We will board the bus after breakfast with our licensed guide, Jack  

Drummond, who will join us for a “Killer Angels” themed tour of the battlefields,  

followed by free time to explore the battlefield on our own and purchase lunch.  

Later in the afternoon, we will take a self-guided tour of the National Cemetery  

and then return to our hotel for a pizza party. After we eat, we will test our  

skills at the 1863 Escape Room. (Breakfast/Dinner)

My daughter said this was the best trip she’s ever had with classmates and teachers. She lived learning and being hands on! Thank you!

This was our second trip with this group. The trips were very different but both were amazing! Each day Becky and Taree planned a couple of different cultural experiences. Whether it was a history museum, an art museum, a bike ride in the country side or city, a canal cruise or a cooking class they made sure there was something for everyone to enjoy. I really like that many of the meals are included as it provides opportunity for the travelers to get to know each other. And the hotels are top notch too. We will definitely be traveling with Explore Europe Tours, LLC again soon!

This was my first trip since the outbreak of the pandemic. It was nice to travel with people from my area, especially with a few I knew. Becky and Taree really work hard to deliver a great experience at a reasonable cost, and they really care to ensure folks are able to enjoy their trip. When I suggested we go see the ABBA concert, they made that happen and added it into the trip plans! I enjoyed this "adult only" trip more than the earlier one where we travelled with students--it was nice that everyone was able to take care of themselves and got themselves to where they needed to be so the trip didn't snag. This trip also had a lot of "free time" built into it, and I liked being able to do some things at my own pace...although it could be daunting to narrow down what I wanted to do the most! I also really liked that Becky & Taree took care of the organized tipping--it was wonderful to not be nickle & dimed on the trip!

Ward, Thank you for joining us on this tour. It was a joy to travel with you. You can recommend any concert you like in our future travels.

This was a trip to remember. Holland the land of windmills, art and cheese was a delight. So was our local guide Marike. Our group was a good mix and easy to travel with throughout the tour. The overnight ferry from Holland to England was a favorite part of the tour for me.

This trip had a variety of activities, sites and food that I enjoyed tremendously! Not a dull moment. Marike was very generous with her knowledge and was warm and hospitable. What a memory that will last forever. I'm looking forward to the next adventure.
