      About this trip

      Come From Away is based on actual events that took place on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed. A total of 38 planes landed in Gander, Newfoundland carrying nearly 7,000 passengers and crew. This was an extraordinary challenge to take on for a small town like Gander with the population of only 10,000 people.

      Join us for Broadway’s Come From Away that has won Best Musical all across America. Our tour in Chicago begins at Water Tower Place for shopping and lunch on your own with your friends at Water Tower Place Foodlife food court, Mity Nice Grill or choose from the many local restaurants along the Magnificent Mile Michigan Ave. After lunch, we depart for the Cadillac Palace Theatre and our 2:00 p.m. matinee musical performance of Come From Away.

      The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of nearly 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

      Following the musical, we depart for home and will enjoy a boxed dinner (included) on our drive back to Champaign.

      We enjoyed our trip. The weather was less than cooperative. Rained first four days of the land portion of the trip. Our trip was land travel first , then the south bound inner passage. Highly recommended this route to relax on the final leg.

      We had a great time! Travel was super easy with our bus to and from the airport, check-ins at the airport and into each hotel. It was great to have days perfectly planned with a great list of activities. We really enjoyed our travel guide in San Francisco - he was so knowledgeable and did a great job showing us around. Our LA guide was OK but I think it was hard to see much of interest as LA seems so spread out. We also wanted to provide a special 'shout out' to our bus driver (Ruben w/Via) for the week. Ruben was fantastic!! Would definitely go again!

      It was a delightful trip! Mary Beth does a beautiful job, as usual. Every detail went smoothly and was handled first class! 'Sorry to learn that there are no other day trips planned for the future. Janann Vance

      The trip was good except for the flight which is normal and the bus back from Ohara but understand this will be corrected and gift available for future trips. But I also must mention the dinner on the last night there. Dinner was a long way from hotel and the time we it took us plus and the time we returned just did not make any since, since several in our group had to get up to catch their plane home early in the morning. It would have made much more since to have this dinner the night prior and the last dinner could have been held in the hotel or a walking distance from the hotel and much earlier. This should be looked at on any of your future trips

      Overall, it was a great trip! The group guide was excellent and the local guides were also very good. I learned something new every day and have amazing photos to remember this trip for years to come!
