Jeanie's Journeys Minneapolis Travel

WHY ARE YOUR TOURS SO AFFORDABLE?

    

Our tours are affordable because Jeanie designs all of our tours! Many Tour Operators are actually Resellers, selling other Tour Operator's Tours and therefore they must pay a middleman. Since Jeanie designs all of our tours, cost is kept low. Jeanie has worked full time in the travel industry since 2001 working for Dayton's, Marshall Fields and Sunshine Travel. In addition, she has flown the world as a Flight Attendant for Northwest and Sun Country Airlines. Because of her extensive experience she knows how to price air and land tours at a very good price and passes on the savings to you!

Where do you offer pick up?

If there are groups of 8 or more, We will pick up at many community centers. The community center with the majority of people signed up will be the pick-up location. Jeanie's Journeys will try to have a pickup location in the North and South ends of The Twin Cities. These locations will have free parking.

 

For tours involving a flight that begins at the airport, you would need to find your own way to the airport and meet a Jeanie's Journeys representative there to begin your trip.

DO YOU OFFER PICK UP AT THE DOOR?

 

YES!  Jeanie's Journeys does not build the cost of at home pickup into the cost of your tour. Generally "Pick Up At The Door" Tour Companies build in $200 per person in order to cover pick up pricing across the Twin Cities Metro area and outstate. Imagine paying $400 to be picked up at your door if you are a couple living in the same home! Here at Jeanie's Journeys we don't like this arrangement so do not build pick up into our tours. That said, if you would like to be picked up at your door, Jeanie's Journeys is able to arrange for you to be picked up at your home and dropped off to meet the bus or at the airport for an additional cost. The total cost is $200 for up to 4 people from the same pick up spot which is a very good price! The pick up spot would have to be within a defined pick up zone in the Twin Cities metro area. Call Jeanie for more information at 612-229-5276 and leave your car at home!

Why should I travel in a group?

Consider the environment

Seeing the world responsibly also means leaving the beauty intact for the next visitors. Today’s motor coaches are both fuel efficient and environmentally-sound. On a per passenger basis, a modern motorcoach is among the cleanest modes of transportation in the world.

 

Socialize with friends
There’s no better way to meet new acquaintances or to enjoy the company of old friends than the adventures of traveling together.

 

Save money
Traveling in a group is the most economical way to travel. You’ll be surprised to find that luxury doesn’t come at a high price on today’s tours. In most cases, the shared expense of a traveling together will be far less than other modes of public transportation and even less than private autos.

 

Safety
In a group, we watch out for each other. This is especially important if you are traveling as a single person. There is safety in numbers!
