Day 1

Welcome Aboard! Join Gunther Tours for a yuletide season get-away to see biblical sights, holiday lights and experience pure delight in Kentucky, "The Bluegrass State". Upon our arrival at the Holiday Inn Riverfront in Covington, Kentucky for the next two nights, we are greeted by an angelic spirit . . . otherwise known as the "Ghost of Christmas Past". This evening we are treated to a delicious buffet dinner "Christmas Dinner with the Cratchits" with the 1951 version of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" with Alistair Sim as Scrooge running in the background for entertainment.

Day 2

After a buffet breakfast, we depart for a day of sightseeing in Ohio and Kentucky. We begin our seasonal touring at The Krohn Conservatory, by experiencing one of Cincinnati's Christmas traditions, the annual holiday floral show. Enjoy a self-guided tour of the conservatory filled with countless Pink poinsettias featured in unique Christmas displays. The Poinsettia Tree is a sight to behold! Also, on display are miniature buildings that replicate Cincinnati's famous landmarks rendered in wood and other organic material. The Magic and Mistletoe display features model trains, flowers, animated figures, and a full-size Nativity scene with stable, creche, statues, and live sheep and cows is always popular with visitors. Next, we will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at the Washington Platform Restaurant. Following lunch, walk next door to the Minges and Sons Old Fashioned Candy Store. A $5.00 candy voucher is included. One of the hidden treasures downtown, this candy store is filled with tasty goodies that remind you of your childhood and new candy confections that represent the future. The store stocks and sells all those candies you thought had stopped being sold, as well as your favorites in bulk. Next, we arrive at today's special event, "Christmas Time at the Ark". The Ark Encounter is a full-size Noah's Ark experience built according to the dimensions given in the Bible. The largest wooden timber-framed structure in the world, The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction. Spanning 510 feet long, 85 feet wide, and 51 feet high, this modern engineering marvel will amaze the young and old. From the moment you step inside the Ark you will experience scores of exhibits about the Flood, Noah, and animatronic animals are designed to answer your questions about the biblical account of Noah's Ark. As night falls upon the Ark, you will experience the wonder of Christmas while you enjoy an unforgettable evening of festive lights; shop for gifts, including at an extensive fair-trade market; stroll through Ararat Ridge Zoo and much more. As you take in the dramatic setting of Noah's Ark, the lake, and the gardens are illuminated in a remarkable sea of rainbow-colored lights, be sure to have your camera ready to take pictures! A tasty holiday buffet dinner is included at Emzara's Kitchen. After our amazing day of touring, we return to our hotel for a restful night's sleep.
