Trips & Tours

For more information or reservations, please contact Free Spirit Vacations and Events at 480-926-5547 or [email protected].

Please note: Due to decreased capacity restrictions, it is important to book early, as space is limited.

Great news! We have just received word that the Pageant of the Masters, the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, and the Tournament of Roses Parade will be taking place. We were hopeful, but just last week received confirmation.

They will be limiting capacity. And we have guests who rolled over their reservation from 2020 to 2021, so availability is tight. If you are interested in any of these vacations, please book early. A $100 deposit (refundable up until 45 days prior to departure) is required with your booking.
