Country Travel Discoveries was founded in 2012.

Country Travel Discoveries welcomes solo travelers on ALL tours! We hear so many stories of solos meeting on tour and becoming friends. Some singles have even gotten married! Here are just a few of our favorite stories:

  • Four solo ladies booked our Grand Canyon & Red Rocks tour in 2021. They became such good friends by the end of the tour, that the four of them decided to take their future CTD trips together! The group gathers every January over coffee to peruse our catalog and pick their travel destinations for the year.
  • Donnie and Dan met on on a CTD tour and soon became fast friends! Not only do they text each other every day, but they pick their upcoming tour based on what the other has booked.
  • Jack and Katie met on our Magical Danube River Cruise a few years ago. They're now married and take CTD trips together!

In the United States and Canada, each traveler is responsible for their own transportation to our starting city. We try to utilize airport hotels that provide airport shuttle service. Tours outside of North America generally include air from a U.S. departure city. We also offer land-only international pricing for those who would like to make their own flight arrangements or utilize frequent flyer miles. Detailed directions for flying or driving to our starting city will be included in your Get Set Mailing. We also have a professional air specialist to assist those who wish to fly.

A $250 per person deposit by check or credit card is all it takes to reserve your tour.

Our tour caters to travelers who are 55 and older. However, we warmly welcome and host adult travelers of all ages.

We utilize hotels that have earned a three diamond rating by AAA. Some locations will utilize a hotel of a higher or lower rating, depending on the location and availability of hotels. We personally inspect each and every hotel for comfort, safety, cleanliness, and convenience.
