      ELVIS The Musical

      His singular name still evokes immediate recognition from people all over the world! This official Elvis Presley bio-musical takes a closer look at the rock star and cultural icon whose impact shaped the history of music and culture. ELVIS: THE MUSICAL spans from his childhood in Tupelo, Mississippi to his triumphant 1968 “Comeback Special” and his ascent to be “The King.” It features over 40 Elvis hits and iconic songs including, “All Shook Up,” “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Burning Love,” “Good Rockin’ Tonight,” “Hound Dog,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Are You Lonesome,” and “Blue Suede Shoes.” 

      Gettysburg National Park & Battlefield

      The Battle of Gettysburg - The crown jewel of our trip, is known as the turning point of the Civil War.  A three day battle in July of 1863, Gettysburg is the most famous and tragic battle ever fought on American soil.  A field that spans some forty two square miles, is where Robert E. Lee made his worst mistake of the war, giving the north a victory that would signal the eventual end of the conflict.  We begin our journey here with a Narrated Battlefield Riding Tour.  We will stop at Robert E. Lee Memorial - View Pickett’s Charge Battlefield - Drive through the Wheat Fields and along Devil’s Den - Ascend Little Round Top - Cross over Cemetery Ridge( Union Side) - and reach the High Water Mark of the Confederacy.   You will also see the National Cemetery where President Lincoln gave his famous Gettysburg Address.  After our riding tour we arrive at the visitors center to see the film “Fields of Freedom” depicting the sounds and fury of the battle at Gettysburg.  Time is provided to enjoy the “Cyclorama” along with time to visit the Gettysburg Battle Museum.

      We had a great time. Food was great. Music was great. However, spending 2.5 hours on a bus was much too long. I'd rather drive up myself and be there in about 1.3 hours. Stopping in Billerica then in Waltham added an extra hour to our trip so our group will probably not be doing this again.

      Best of Times trip to Danversport Yacht Club (New Years Eve Day- American Bandstand 12/31/2022 in Mass. was absolutely awesome, food delicious, staff wonderful and great music. We all had a wonderful time and met a lot of fun people. Loved the band as they played lots of varieties of music selections and requests. This is the second time I have gone to this event, and it definitely keeps us on our dancing feet. Thank you, Best of Times for another Best of a Time. Happy New Year!!!! See you again soon! always, Kathy Jerome NH

      I had a fantastic time. The food was great and the hotel was amazing. Would do it all over again. Thank you for a memorable trip.
      By Elaine C for Reading Woods Social Club-Nashville's A Country Xmas 2022 on 01 Jan, 2023
      Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves. Bus travel to/from Logan airport was smooth and the driver was very courteous. Flights and connections went well considering the size and age of the group. Our director Tim and Nashville bus driver Vaneeta were great. He provided timely and useful information so we knew when to be where we needed to be and she was always right at the predetermined spot and time with a big smile for all of us. Our only complaint was the pacing of day #1. We got on the bus at 1:30am, arrived in Nashville (after a flight transfer in Chicago and not a lot of waiting time) to get right on the bus for a tour of the city before stopping to get something to eat. We understand that the hotel rooms aren't ready that early in the day. Maybe next time (if it's the same age demographic) have the flight to Nashville later in the day so your group can settle in and get a sense of the Opryland Hotel before getting to it the following day. The tours and sites you chose to highlight were excellent. The Grand Ol' Opry show, Ryman Theater and General Jackson Shows were super. Didn't care so much for the Oak Ridge Boys but the evening and venue were nice. The food was generally good. Nice breakfast variety each morning. Dinners were okay and there was plenty to eat. I worked long ago in the hospitality industry and know how it goes when feeding a large group but you might want to think about having one lunch or dinner meal in Nashville be specifically about Bar-b-que! Too much chicken lol. Anyway, thank you for a enjoyable Nashville Christmas experience! We would consider traveling with you again.

      Great time, but need an extra day up front with later departure on first day with no planned activities. Really need some time to settle in, explore, get a decent meal, and get a good night’s rest. Our guide, Tim, was absolutely fantastic and our bus driver, Vaneta, was incredible. Nonstop flights would have been preferable if possible. Also if a flight is going out at 5am there is nothing open at Logan until 4 at the earliest…please remove indication that we have time for something to eat before the flight from your brochure. Thanks for everything. Gave 4 stars only because of the marathon first day.
