The Group Travel Leader Small Market Meetings Going on Faith

Planners Talk Back: Entertainment

Select Traveler asked these group travel planners, “What’s something you do to entertain passengers on the motorcoach?” Check out their responses.


Michelle DeFord, Trippin With Michelle

Spencer, Indiana

We play funny games, play bingo, tell stories and award a funny hat to wear for the last to arrive on the bus at each stop.

Peggy Fuller, CPB 55+ Travel Club


When the guide is not narrating, we watch movies, play bingo and more.

Richard Nola, St. Margaret’s Senior Travel Club

Buffalo, New York

On the bus, I tell jokes, sing, play videos, play bingo and feed them.
You have to know how to space activities out and give them some quiet time.

Denis Jones ,

Columbia, South Carolina

We watch movies on our bus trips.

Janet Johnson, National Exchange Bank and Trust

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin

On each motorcoach tour, we do a Banking Moment, where I talk for a few moments on one bank product: scams, mobile banking, bank products/checking, CDs, etc. Questions are asked and answered. It has become quite popular, with travelers asking, “When we do get to hear your Banking Moment?” We also play NEBAT, which is just like bingo, only they must call NEBAT — National Exchange Bank and Trust — instead of bingo.
