Welcome to BNT's 2021 Tour Preview Season!
Plan & Save Now. Travel Later.
December 7, 2020 - January 22, 2021
Welcome, Travelers, to a Special Edition of the BNT Tour Preview!
This year we are celebrating PLANNING—yours and ours—with 7 weeks of savings and inspiration, rather than our annual one day Preview. Although we cannot gather in our usual 750+ group this January, we will help you plan one or more of your Bucket List tours for 2021.
You’ll see new videos each week from our Tour Directors, travel partners like Mayflower Cruises and Tours, the cast of Then Sings My Soul, and more! Wow! Everything you need to choose your 2021 tours is on this “2021 Preview Season” web page, the individual tour pages on this site, or in your 2021 Touring Magazine. (The tour book mailed mid-November and is also available to view now as a PDF here.)
You have THREE ways to register to secure your seats with Preview Discounts this “Season”: Online, By Mailer in the 2021 Tour Book, and By Phone. Be sure to visit this page each week as we launch new videos. Check out the full “2021 Preview Season” schedule when you scroll down the page. If you are on our email or Travel Blog newsletter list, we will send out a reminder with an easy, direct link to this page—and a few more photo and travel blogs, too. We’re so excited and thankful for you. First time here? Scroll down to watch our welcome videos from Bob Neff, Jr. and Karen Mills, and the 2021 Bucket List movie!
Let’s plan now. When you’re ready, we’ll be here to take you there!

A Few BNT Travel Policies...
Walking Guidelines Key

2 Requires average amount of walking on a level surface; may have stairs, but an elevator or lift is available. This tour level could accommodate a walking aide, such as a wheelchair.
3 Requires moderate amount of walking possibly on uneven surfaces; longer and shorter days; possible air travel with long walks to terminal gates.

Cancellations – All cancellations are subject to a $10.00 per person cancellation fee, PLUS any expenses that cannot be recovered due to vendor deadlines, unless a substitute(s) can be found. Show tickets are non-refundable 60 days or less prior to tour departure. For regular motorcoach tours, travelers may cancel before the final payment date and receive a full refund. Some exceptions may apply if we are using another company to package the tour, who has a different policy. No refunds will be given to people who fail to arrive for the tour the day of departure. For all cancellations, if a substitute is found, a full refund will be made with the exception of the $10.00 per person cancellation fee. If you wish to protect yourself from payment of a cancellation penalty due to sickness or death in the immediate family, we recommend that you purchase insurance to cover this loss. You can go to www.bobnefftours.com and click on Travel Insurance at the bottom of the Home Page to purchase insurance online or call them at 1.800.826.1300.
Responsibility – Bob Neff Tours, Inc. of Lancaster, PA, assumes no responsibility or liability in connection with the services of any train, vessel, carriage, aircraft, motorcoach, or other conveyance which may be used wholly or in part, in performance of their duties to participants of this tour. Neither will they be responsible for any act, error, or omission; for any injury, loss, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned by reason of any defect in any vehicle or through neglect or default of any company or person engaged in conveying the passenger; for any hotel proprietor, or for any other person engaged in carrying out the itinerary listed in this tour brochure. In the same vein, we are not liable for any spread of COVID-19 virus during the trip. We and our travel partners promise to do our best to keep things as clean as possible and in accordance with the guidelines and practices under which we are obligated to operate, but each person is responsible for their own health. Our attractions and stops may also have their own regulations and we expect our travelers to respect these guidelines for your own health and safety.
While no changes are anticipated in the published tour, the right is reserved to alter the itinerary for operational reasons, but without deleting any of its components; or to substitute hotels where and when considered advisable for the comfort and welfare of the tour participants. Any additional expense incurred due to changes required owing to sickness, weather, strikes, war, quarantine, or other causes shall be the responsibility of the tour participant.
Travel Insurance – Travel insurance for Medical, Baggage and Cancellation is available. If you wish coverage, an insurance flyer will be sent to you at your request or go to our website, www.bobnefftours.com and click on the “Travel Insurance” button at the bottom of the Home page.
➔“Pre-existing Conditions” are covered if insurance is purchased at the same time you register for the tour. Call BNT for an insurance flyer to purchase insurance.
➔ We strongly suggest you purchase cancellation insurance on the flying tours and cruises, since the penalties are more stringent than for our regular motorcoach tours.
➔ If the tour is cancelled, Travel Guard will issue you a voucher, which is valid for coverage on another future tour.
