For your convenience, we offer pick up locations at the Sam's Club parking lot in Muskegon. We also offer pick-ups in Grand Haven, Holland, Grand Rapids and Whitehall on select trips.
Most of our trips are deluxe fully-equipped motor-coaches, while other are by air, ship, and train. Yes, traveling with us is fun! We have a non-smoking policy on our coaches and seat rotation gives you the opportunity to meet your follow travelers. You can expect to hear a few jokes, play a game, and just relax while enjoying the scenery!
While most organizations provide only one tour escort, Orchard View Travelers provides (on most of our trips) TWO fully trained escorts. Giving you the personalized attention that we believe you deserve. They are certified in CPR and First Aid.

How to Register
So how do register for a trip? Once you have selected the trips you are interested in, call our office at (231) 760-1376 to sign up. Reservations are limited so we encourage you to call as soon as you can. Many of our trips sell out quickly, so you don't want to miss out. Some of our trips have detailed flyers, which will highlight each day's activities. You can view these on our website or call our office and we will be happy to mail them to you.
Once you have registered, the deposit and final payment dates are listed in our brochure and should be adhered to, as we do not send billing statements for payment balances. Departure and return times are listed in our brochure for one-day trips and no advance itinerary is sent. Overnight trip details are mailed to you 10-14 days before the departure date. Many of our extended trips have an orientation meeting, where you can meet the tour escort(s), your fellow travelers, and pick up details pertaining to your specific trip. If you are unable to attend an orientation, we will make sure you receive the necessary information.
It's that easy, so give us a call today!
