Charter bus tours are a convenient way to transport a large group of people to nearly any type of venue or event, from historical locations to Broadway shows or tourist attractions. School organizations, senior groups and corporations often make use of a chartered bus service to easily coordinate trips and ensure group members arrive at destinations on time. Whether shopping, sightseeing or gambling, charter bus tours can be catered to meet a variety of travel needs.

Many charter tours are offered to tourist destinations in major U.S. cities, such as New York City, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tour bus package prices often include travel, hotel and entry fees into shows, museums and attractions. Many clubs and organizations host theme charter tours, such as theater, art or concert tours. The tours may include a one-day trip, single destination or show or a variety of performances scheduled over several days and at multiple venues.

Bus tours catering to collectors are also available, such as basket collectors touring the Longaberger® Factory Store in Newark, Ohio, or art glass collectors visiting The Fenton Gift Store in Williamston, West Virginia. In addition to the ultimate destination, collector tours will often include stops along the way at theme-related sites, such as an art studio or gallery. This provides added entertainment as well as a chance for bus passengers to stretch their legs or have a meal.

For an easy way to keep a large group together, many couples choose charter bus tours to transport their wedding party members or guests to or from the wedding and reception. A charter bus offers plenty of room for many members of the wedding party, and eliminates the chance of guests losing their way between venues. It also does away with the inconvenience of finding and paying for parking spots for multiple vehicles at the celebration site.

Senior charter tours are catered toward interests of the group, ranging from sightseeing ventures to gambling junkets. The senior tours offer safety and companionship for seniors who may not feel comfortable venturing to new locations on their own. Many bus tours catering to seniors will tailor destinations to the desires of a group.

Conventions, church groups and corporations often take advantage of the convenience charter bus tours offer in moving large groups of people to meeting destinations. Charter bus tours are also used for school field trips as well as fraternity and sorority events. Shopping trips to large malls, such as the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota, and major flea markets and art shows are also options for bus tours.
