Summer Fun is HERE!
Get outdoors and discover a world of exciting travel programs in the U.S. and abroad, as featured in our new 2015 Summer Escapes & Specials travel brochure.
The brochure features a number of excellent discoveries for summer, announcing some newly opened departures for popular trips to Nebraska, Oregon and Colorado. It also spotlights some tours that are especially popular but will nonethless be going on hiatus and NOT running in 2016 -- including Global Getaways to Germany, Switzerland and Austria and Iceland (with Greenland Extension), as well as favorite tours of Niagara Falls & Western New York and eastern Iowa.
Using our Travel More, Save More escalating discount program, travelers can save $200.00 to $400.00 per couple, and can even combine these with our Refer-a-Friend bonus on new customer referrals to save even more.

Edition Features Several Added Departures, New Destinations, "Last Chance" Tours
Country Travel DISCOVERIES is pleased to announce that the Spring Edition of our 2015 Travel Discoveries Catalog -- now including 6 classic tours introduced for 2015. You'll also find exciting, all-new "GET ACTIVE Tour" experiences in Ireland and California's beautiful Sonoma wine country, both newly created at the request of customers seeking a more physically active, experiential form of travel in smaller groups.
What Makes a Country Travel DISCOVERIES Tour?
As our long-time customers know, Country Travel DISCOVERIES has always emphasized off-the-beaten-path routes and harder-to-find attractions on our tours. Our tour coordinators generally try to avoid common tourist attractions, monuments and museums that travelers could easily visit on their own. That said, we have also enjoyed investigating and introducing our guests to a number of distinctive museums in smaller, out of the way towns across America. So, we were pleased to see some of our favorite stops from past and current tours on Fodor's list of "15 Best Small-Town Museums in the U.S.", released this week.
The majestic blue Danube—no other river in the world flows through as many countries. And now, I want to personally invite you to join my wife Lori and me on Magical Danube & Prague (Sep. 12-23, 2015), a very special land tour and river cruise chartered exclusively for CTD travelers. By land and by ship, we'll discover four capital cities in five countries, several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and wonderful scenic, cultural, rural and culinary experiences too numerous to count!

Discovery Director Ann Kaiser on CTD's New "Get Active" Tours
I love to travel, and I’m not one to sit still. Now that I’ve retired from my full-time career as a writer/editor, I have more free time to go. I’ve even taken up tour directing for Elm Grove’s Country Travel DISCOVERIES as a part-time job!
Like me, many CTD travelers are baby boomers who want to make the most of every day on a tour. They’re active, energetic and open to getting up-close-and-personal with people and places along the way.
How about you? Here are some hints for actively enjoying traveling...
