I'd like to take a moment to welcome you as the founder of Grand American Tours.
I would also like to say how much I appreciate your choice of Grand American’s services for planning your group travel. Choosing who you allow to handle your travel plans is undoubtedly one of the most important choices you will make on behalf of your group. Just remember the last time you were on a trip and a question or issue arose that needed immediate attention. Grand American is available 24/7 for just such moments when you are traveling. We offer you Peace of Mind.
We’ve heard so many inspiring stories from our group leaders who have traveled all over the world with us on cruises – from Alaska to Australia to the Mediterranean to the Panama Canal – venturing further and with more passengers every time. Many have started out offering only local bus tours, only to find themselves becoming World Travelers.
This is the beginning of a journey and we’ll be with you every step of the way! Together we’ll make this your best trip ever! Thank you again for choosing Grand American Tours.
"Dear Kim, Amy, Chrissy, Cherie, Dale, Gena, and Kelly, Last week, my wife and I went on our very first cruise. We sailed the Southern Caribbean for 7 nights aboard the Grandeur of the Seas. Nancy told me about RCL’s new cruise out of Bridgetown at 3:13pm on Feb 22 and by 8:38pm Kim had us booked on that cruise! The cruise was indeed an amazing experience. And I can’t wait to go back. I now get it! And I can testify to this: GAT is indeed the "#1 cruise experts for group leaders”. In your own little way, you bring so much joy to so many! Thank you all. - Kwab A., Silver Springs, MD

"I will definitely recommend your company to others. Everything was great on this cruise. We were treated very well by all employees both on land and sea. Thanks for everything!" - Carol S., Harrisburg, PA
"Grand American is the most professional, efficient organization of any kind that I have ever worked with!" - Tracy M., Skippers, VA
Looking for ideas and insight? Check out our carefully selected itineraries online; call us for customized pricing and flyers. Ask us anything! We've sailed on most ships and can help you match your group's preferences and interests to the cruise line and ship that would suit you best.
Every detail of planning a cruise with Grand American has been designed to make your job effortless. We provide custom flyers, sign up forms and web pages with pictures and videos to help you promote your trip. Travelers can even make reservations right on our website.
Group leaders choose how involved they want to be in the process. Some ask that their promotional materials have their group members call and pay us directly (and we copy them on all receipts.) Some choose to have everything go through them. Some choose our NEW, easy, online sign up form that is secure. Whatever you choose, we can accommodate.
Group Leaders are busy people with many responsibilities. Consider us your executive assistant. Grand American handles online check in, immigration information, airline seat assignments (whenever possible), special dietary or handicapped requests, printing boarding passes, and every detail of your trip. We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week when your group is traveling.
Grand American focuses all of our time and energy into knowing everything there is to know about cruises and cruising. We have been in business since 1986. When you or your group members have a question, the answer is coming from years of first hand experience. Ask us anything! We guide you by understanding your preferences and offering you choices. Tell us what you want; we know how to find it. We have cruised on almost every cruise line and ship.
As a group leader, your needs are different than the individual traveler. Groups want to be together! We arrange your airfare and your dining so that you are together. Pricing must be consistent. With 36+ years of planning group travel, Grand American anticipates your needs and simply makes it effortless for you. We protect your confidentiality of pricing and guarantee your privacy.
