This trip SOLD OUT  in one day.  if you are interested in being on a wait list or a second date, please email Patty at tripsbypatty@gmail.com or use the blue "contact organizer" button.   Thank you!  


This trip features the highly acclaimed traveling Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit.   From creators of the blockbuster exhibit seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris and after a sold-out run in Toronto, the Immersive Van Gogh will be presented in the historic Ford building at Camp North End in Charlotte.  


 Lose yourself in 500,000 cubic feet of monumental projections animating Vincent van Gogh’s oeuvre. Wander through entrancing, moving images that highlight brushstrokes, detail, and color – truly illuminating the mind of the genius.    You will be immersed in Van Gogh’s works – from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life paintings.   

As an added bonus, this Exhibit is being hosted in Charlotte's historic Camp North End.  This historic landmark is undergoing a transformation to become Charlotte’s hub for innovation and creativity.  During our visit we get to experience the vision of Camp North End through a historic tour and time to visit galleries and creative small retail and culinary businesses.

I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

Wonderful trip - great people; excellent coordination. Loved the exhibit - the venue was interesting I was sad it was so hot that we were unable to enjoy the site. Enjoyed the history of the factory turned gathering spot. Bus was comfortable but wished the microphone and wi-fi were functional. Charlotte city tour was good - wish the guide had been able to project his voice better - the back of the bus heard little to none of the tour. Shopping was fun and I did manage to purchase some great items...enjoyed a lovely lunch! Hope to go on a trip again with Patty.

Great idea for a trip with a great group of fellow travelers. However, if the bus does not have an operating audio system or if the tour guide cannot get his audio working change the bus and / or cancel the tour, because is was a total waste of time for the vast majority of passengers (and, one supposes, a waste of funds)

Thank you Bill for taking the time to comment on the trip. I was deeply disappointed that I was not able to provide the Charlotte city tour experience for many passengers due to the audio difficulty. I enjoy offering quality to my clients and this definitely fell short of that. I can assure you that it won't happen again.

The Immersive Van Gogh experience is not to be missed! I am so glad Patty arranged the trip for us. The bus was comfortable and the driver exceptional. Accommodations were very comfortable.. The recommended restaurant was a treat. I enjoyed everything about this trip and look forward to traveling with Patty again. Pat D.

As always we had a wonderful trip with Patty. My only complaint was the microphone on the bus didn’t work, so I wasn’t able to hear the tour guide give his history of Charlotte. That was disappointing. That being said, can’t wait for my trip with Patty in October.
By Marie D for Immersive Van Gogh at Historic Camp North End on 03 Sep, 2021
Thank you Marie for your comment. The problem with the mic was very disappointing to me as well. I don't enjoy disappointing clients and not providing them with a quality experience. Thank you for being such a good client and being interested in my trips. This will not happen again. Patty

The Van Gogh exhibit was nice but not exactly what I envisioned. The remainder of the trip was forgettable - the tour of Charlotte was uninspired and the bus microphone didn't work which didn't help the tour guide. Spent a lot of time at a mall - also forgettable. Wanted more time at Camp North End and a tour of the place, we could have left at 5 instead of 4pm as we were very close to hotel - or we would have been had we not spent a lot of time trying to find a way around construction to get to the hotel. The hotel was nice but no restaurant for breakfast. This was our least enjoyable trip with Patty.
