History of Holiday Tours

Come "Experience. Excellence." with Holiday.

Vacations and leisure-time travel should be as enjoyable and pleasant as possible. Keeping this in mind, Nancy and Dwight Thompson, founders of Holiday Tours, Inc., of Randleman, North Carolina, go out of their way to design their motorcoach tours and other travel packages in this manner.

Nancy & Dwight Thompson

Nancy and Dwight Thompson started Holiday Tours in 1978, offering to local people the opportunity to travel in North America on deluxe tours at affordable prices. Holiday Tours was one of the first in the area to offer Escorted group tours to such places as New York, Washington, Nashville, and DisneyWorld. Of course, tours now include destinations to all 50 states and well as Europe, Australia, etc. And, people come from all over the country to travel with Holiday Tours.

During the first two years of operation, Holiday Tours chartered coaches from other operators as they were needed to accommodate its tours.  In 1980, the first motorcoach was purchased, and from that small beginning, the company has grown into a fleet of Deluxe Prevost Motorcoaches serving the travel needs of over 50,000 passengers annually.

Holiday Tours' Deluxe Prevost motorcoaches are air-conditioned, video-equipped, bus to bus radio communications (which is great for school groups, etc.), adjustable reading lamps, folding arm rests and magazine racks. A restroom is also available on all full-size motorcoaches.

Holiday Tours is located in Randleman, NC, and utilizes over 10,000 square feet of office buildings, over 12,000 square feet of full-service maintenance facilities, and large fenced-in parking lot for customers and employees to use while on their trips.

From day one of operation, Holiday Tours has strived to offer customers the best possible vacation value, while maintaining an unsurpassed level of service. This includes giving personalized service to each and every customer - a policy which remains the highest priority, even with the company's considerable growth since that first tour in 1978. Having the people return home excited and eager to travel again has been the trademark of Holiday Tours.

The Office Staff consists of trained, professional, experts in the travel industry, who plan the tours with the customer in mind. They make sure the hotels, meals, sightseeing attractions, and miles driven in a day will produce the best vacation possible. After all this in-office planning and preparing, it is then turned over to very professional and experienced Motorcoach Drivers and Tour Directors, who go out of their way to see that each and every tour is carried out according to Holiday Tours plans.

From the beginning, it has been our goal to provide customer satisfaction. We firmly believe that to succeed in this business, we must do everything possible to please our customers, and feel that is the key to bringing them back.
