Participants can choose from six 2016 departure dates during the spring, summer and fall: June 6, July 11, August 15, October 3, October 7 and October 11.

Additional tour highlights include a private beer tasting of Vermont craft beers, stops at country stores in small hamlets, the opportunity to shop in upscale boutiques and fine art galleries and a stop at the award-winning King Arthur Baking School and Store.
