About this trip

8:30-Check in at the Bus at the Clubhouse

5:15- Around 5:15 we will return to Soleil 

We will begin our day with a guided tour of this magnificent shrine. Open to one and all, the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir was inaugurated in August of 2007 after only 17 months of construction time utilizing 1.3 Million volunteer hours. The Mandir is comprised of 3 types of stone (Turkish Limestone, Italian marble, and Indian pink sandstone). More than 34,000 individual pieces were carved by hand in India, shipped to the USA and assembled in Lilburn like a giant 3-D puzzle. IT's a must see in the small town of Lilburn, GA.(Shoes are NOT allowed in the Shrine so please bring socks)!

Following the BAPS Shrine tour we will head immediately to Atlanta for a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the most amazing professional sports stadiums in the world.  The Mercedes Benz Stadium, the world's first Platinum LEED Certified Stadium, is home to both the Atlanta Falcons and The Atlanta United professional soccer team.  This tour will take us behind the scenes to see areas of the stadium that cannot be accessed on game day.  


 Our trip will include round trip transportation on late model motorcoaches

This was a terrific trip. All accomodations were great,however the first day lunch was sub par. This would not prevent me from traveling again. Mark and the motorcoach driver were superb, comfortable and well taken care of

What an awesome trip! Everything was planned to perfection by APlus Tours: the hotel was beautiful and in a perfect location, the busses were on time and clean and the drivers were the best, lunch at the Pirate House was delicious as was breakfast at Henry's, plenty of free time to explore on your own and a wonderful Christmas Tradition show at the Savannah Theatre and much more. Thank you, Mark and Cheri, for all your hard work to make our travel experience such a positive one!
