An International Tour,
So Close to Chicago

Mayflower Tours prides itself in being a Midwest based tour operator with itineraries circling the globe as well as circling its closest Great Lake, Michigan. A Fall Foliage tour into Northern Michigan & Ontario, Canada is an easy drive in a comfortable coach. There are captivating sights around every bend starting with Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore which stretches along 35 miles of Michigan’s eastern shoreline. Continuing north, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (UP) is the gateway into Canada via Sault Ste. Marie. Mayflower travelers will board the Algoma Central Railway for a spectacular train ride through forests of brilliant yellow and red maple leaves and quivering white barked birch trees. The historic rail tracks wind through pristine streams, waterfalls and lakes as it approaches Agawa Canyon.

Crossing back into the U.S at the Straits of Mackinaw, a stay at The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is a must. From its bluff cottages, quaint shops, and its historic Fort, this peaceful Midwest resort island offers a glimpse into life during a simpler and more genteel era. Time stopped on this island before the invention of cars, so none are allowed. Mayflower will provide horse drawn carriages for guests to tour the island and learn history and legends before arriving at the island’s crown jewel, the 1897 vintage Grand Hotel. The island is great for hiking, biking, and strolling through landscaped summer gardens before an afternoon tea. There is no need to rush, you are on an island!

Fall touring provides a wonderful opportunity for early Christmas shopping and Michigan’s Frankenmuth, known as “Little Bavaria”, certainly ignites holiday spirits. The village Holz-Brucke covered bridge, Bavarian style shops and the world’s largest Christmas store, Bronner’s Christmas Wonderland are a picture postcard finale to this Midwestern getaway.
