Guests from across the nation and many other countries have come to the Nonantum to build life long memories.

      Our adventure is packed with tons of fun, value, and spectacular touring:

        

      The Downeaster Train Ride - On our adventure travel up to Maine as it was done in the Victorian Age, via train.  Enjoy a relaxing and scenic train ride on Amtrak's Downeaster into Portland, ME.  


      Portland, ME City Tour - Enjoy a fully narrated riding tour of Portland’s diverse history and architecture. The childhood home of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Victoria Mansion, and the bustling Old Port are just a few of the sites you’ll see as we travel from city streets to the rocky coast. Plus, enjoy some free-time in Portland’s Old Port to shop, dine, and explore at your own pace.


      Kennebunkport, ME City Tour - Sit back & enjoy a guided tour of the quaint town of Kennebunkport  where we’ll explore the town’s history and architecture along its main streets and back roads.  See the romantic Wedding Cake House, George & Barbara Bush’s summer home, and stroll & admire the lovely gardens and  shrines of the Franciscan Monastery.


      Portsmouth, NH City Tour -  Portsmouth boasts 400 years of history, culture, architecture, and scenic beauty, and you can experience it on Portsmouth tour.  Let our knowledgeable guide highlight the historic homes, trademark tugboats and working waterfront, vibrant Market Square, colorful Prescott Park, and more. 


      Flag Hill Winery Tour & Tasting - A crazy idea…..Led to a great future.  Flag Hill Winery and Vineyard started with just a hope to grow grapes in the Northeast.  An idea that most people in New Hampshire thought was crazy.  In 1990 when Flag Hill began planting grapes there was not a clear picture of the future, only the hope they would grow and make drinkable wine.  Through trial and error, and more trial and error, a focus began to immerge.  Flag Hill doesn’t just make wines from their French-American, and Minnesota hybrid grapes, they also produce excellent fruit wines, a fortified wine, and they are now producing sparkling wines.

      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.

      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.
