Group Tours Made Easy for the Holidays

Holiday home tours are popular along the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights.

There are fewer than two dozen weeks until Christmas. But you don’t have to wait until then to start planning your group’s holiday excursion.

The Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights is eight festive north Louisiana cities – on I-20 east to west (Monroe-West Monroe, Minden and Shreveport-Bossier) and on I-49 north to south (Natchitoches and Alexandria/Pineville). All of the cities are an easy one-hour drive of the other.

Planning can be extremely easy for church groups, motorcoach tours, girlfriend getaways, family reunions, or groups of 10 or more. The website at www.holidaytrailoflights.com has several themed itineraries. But if you are looking for a more personalized experience, you can reach out to a group tour sales person in any one of the cities. Here are some complimentary services that you can take advantage of:

  • Hotel Request for Proposal to save you from having to call multiple hotels in each city
  • Customized itinerary planning based on your dates, holiday events and group’s interests
  • Group-friendly restaurant and attraction suggestions to round out the itinerary and experience

To make trip planning easier, please contact a group tour sales manager from any of the following cities. You can rest easy knowing they will help you plan the entire trip from start to finish:
