Children make wishes.

Do you have a dream, a desire, a need, a compulsion?

If your dream is to become a professional writer or if your desire is to read the travel writing of Michael Keever, founder of Terminal Tours and Instructor of Communications at Queen City College, please click here.

If you are alone and in failing health, if your mobility is challenged, or if you have one last place you must go, Terminal Tours offers you the way to live your dream. You tell us where you want to travel, and we make all the arrangements for your personal tour. We accompany you, assist you in every way necessary, and return you home with your desire fulfilled. If you have special needs, we arrange for medical assistance, handicap transportation, and personalized diets. If you are compelled by circumstances to travel immediately, we offer ambulance service from and to your residence.

Let us make the life story that you’ve imagined come true. Just decide where you wish to seize the day, and we will write your ticket.

We have escorted people like you all over the world.  Our pilgrims have traveled to Lourdes, the Parthenon, Graceland, and other religious sites. But we also assist people who want to return to a childhood home or visit a long-lost family member or personally deliver a gift here in the United States. We can drive you in a van, take you on a train, book passage on a ship, help you into a plane, hook you up to bungee cords--however you want to travel, near or far.
