Welcome to Presidents and Patriots History Tours!
Discover the advantages of traveling on one of our guided, personally hosted, small group tours. Each of our two annual tours are hosted and led by renowned author and presidential historian Richard Norton Smith. A frequent guest on PBS' NewsHour, Mr. Smith also serves as C-SPAN's in-house historian, where he is responsible for such long form series as Presidential Libraries: History Uncovered, The Contenders, and the current Influence and Image: America's First Ladies. Mr. Smith has been director of the Herbert Hoover, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, and Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museums, as well as founding director of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum. He has a rare gift for making history real, relevant, and entertaining. "There's no excuse for a dull book, a dull museum, or a dull tour," he says, "especially when dealing with history, the most fascinating subject I know."
Our deluxe motor coach tours are designed with your comfort and enjoyment in mind, and our small group setting creates a much more intimate, personal setting when compared with other tours who attempt to fill their motor coaches to capacity. In fact, many of our guests are repeat participants. This, combined with a shared interest in the history being experienced, makes for an unusually relaxed, fun and friendly atmosphere.
If you are a C-SPAN viewer, you may have seen one or more of our itineraries featured over the past several years. C-SPAN has been along with us on several past trips, and has broadcast segments on their history channel, C-SPAN 3.
