No matter what I do, travel has been an integral part of the journey.
My role with Super Holiday Tours affords me the opportunity to appreciate the hard work that goes into planning each travel experience and the gratification to watch a student’s face light up when they step off the bus or plane for the first time in a new city. That experience will live with them for a lifetime and since you only get one chance to make a first impression, it is a responsibility that my colleagues at Super Holiday Tours and I take very seriously.

Hi my name is Bogey (at least that’s what the humans call me) and I am the Super Holiday Tours mascot. I am very helpful in greeting our guests at the office like the mail carrier, hotel staff, attractions partners, or any other humans who are nice to me and bring me treats. You will even see me on the Super Holiday Tours Christmas card! I’m very famous.
The Super Holiday Tours staff are wonderful people and they can help you get exactly what you want! I know because I have them all trained. Hildegard gives me Cheerios, Jennifer and Heather take me outside for a run in the grass, Livy and Sharon give me nice long pats, and Bob plays fetch with me! Bryan likes me too and lets me come and live here with my human, Lisa! Even Mark (who is based in Atlanta) adores me, in a viral setting!
Lisa is the best human! She gives me fashionable bandanas to wear every season, makes sure I eat my crunchies and drink my water, and loves me all the time. How could you not? I’m awesome!
I would like to hear from you in regards to your travel plans with Super Holiday Tours. I guarantee you the folks here can ensure that you will have a memorable travel experience.
