Tour Description
Itinerary

On August 21, 2017, people across a narrow track of the United States will see nature's most wondrous spectacle— a Total Eclipse of the Sun. It is a scene of unimaginable beauty; the Moon completely blocks the Sun, daytime becomes a deep twilight and the Sun’s corona shimmers in the darkened sky. This is your chance to experience this rare celestial event in comfort and style with the Seniortours “Good-Time Experts”!
