Planners Talk Back: Worth the Repeat

Select Traveler asked these group travel planners, “What is one of your group’s favorite repeat destinations?” Check out their responses.


Chris Harris, Central Bank Classic

Jefferson City, Missouri

“Alaska has long been a favorite destination for our Classic customers. I believe we first brought a group there in the late ’80s, and we continue to plan a trip there each summer. With the pandemic throwing a kink into travel in 2020, we rebooked our cruise group for 2021 and added a land tour for 2021 as well.”

Robin Anderson, Mason City Chamber of Commerce

Mason City, Iowa

“One of our favorite repeat destinations is South Africa. We have taken three groups there and could probably do it again. The photo safari adventures in Kruger National Park defy description.”

Desiree Ozburn, First State Bank

Shannon, Illinois

“Scandinavia, in particular Sweden, Denmark and Norway, are favorites for our customers. It seems our travelers were romanced by the natural beauty and wide variety of eclectic attractions that Scandinavia has to offer. The delight is ours each time we visit this pristine part of the world.”

Ronni Hannaman, Carson City Chamber of Commerce

Carson City, Nevada

“Collette’s Heritage of America tour is always a bestseller. The tour is popular for those of us out West who are unable to easily drive to where the history of the United States was made. Our travelers come back from this trip elated to have been able to walk in the footsteps of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.”

Craig Farrell, West Bend Area Chamber of Commerce

West Bend, Wisconsin

“Groupwise, I haven’t repeated a trip. However, if I did, it would probably be China. Personally, London and Paris are my favorite repeat destinations.”
