First time on a tour trip. It was wonderful. Ken and Margi were great hosts. Only regret is that I did not get Lucy's phone number. Last name? Bob Buster

I thoroughly enjoyed my first Prime Tours trip. Kevin, Margi, and Laurie had everything beautifully organized; stops were well planned and interesting, hotels very comfortable. My favorite activity was the Corning Glass Museum--absolutely amazing--do wish we had had more time there. Looking forward to the NY City trip in October
I had a wonderful time on this trip! It was my first time traveling with the Westerville Senior Center through prime tours. Met a lot of wonderful people and Kevin was great! Kind of rushed but understand we have to stay on a schedule.
Started with a history lesson at the Corning museum, followed by wine tastings, then a ride on the Erie Canal, next a drenching on the Maid of the Mist at Niagra Falls with some Casino time afterwards and ended with an Ohio winery. All along the way were local eateries, little shops, and the making of new friendships. The trip allowed for personal time and was well planned. Anticipating our next adventure!
