Join our formative group in Virginia during an early fall foray to art galleries, vineyards and beautiful Virginia countryside. We’ll fly to Washington, DC via a short flight on US Airways. Upon arrival, we’ll settle into your comfy DC hotel and take a quick lunch at the National Gallery of Art before embarking on our first discovery of the day. After two nights, we are going inland on a wine tour of 3 renowned Virginia boutique vineyards and a wonderful overnight stay in a local inn. Checking out, we will travel via excursion bus to Philly and two outstanding collections. Experience wine tastings, historical sites, cultural/museum visits all while enjoying early fall colors through Virginia, Maryland & Pennsylvania.
Tentative Schedule which over the coming weeks:
Dates for the Pied Pipe’ers/Group Leaders: May 22- 27th to explore & prep for your groups. Group tour date will likely be in September.
