“Used two previous tour companies before someone told me to try R&J, which led me to two additional tours. I will never use any other. They are so organized and efficient from tour start to tour finish.”

Jan, Blaine – 2022 R&J Branson Traveler

 

Day 1 – Home to Overland Park, KS 

Depart this morning with lunch and coffee breaks along the way. Arrive in Overland Park, KS for the night with dinner at your leisure or enjoy the Drury’s Kickback Reception at the hotel, which is a complete light meal. 

Hotel: Drury Inn & Suites 

Included Meals: Drury Kickback 

 

Day 2 – Overland Park to Branson, MO 

Arriving in Branson we check into our home for the next 3 nights. We will kick off our wonderful musical shows with an entertaining show by Daniel O’Donnell! After dinner at Paula Deen’s Restaurant we’re guests at the beautiful Sight & Sound Theatre for “Queen Esther.” Set in the opulent yet perilous Persian Empire, it is a captivating tale of beauty and bravery. Esther’s ordinary life changed forever when she was taken through the palace doors, entering a new world of royalty and risk. With a crown on her head and a secret in her heart, can she find the courage to trust in God’s plan and believe that she was made for such a time as this? 

Hotel: The Thousand Hills Resort Hotel (3 Nights) 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

 

Day 3 – Branson 

Enjoy breakfast before we take a classic trip down memory lane at the Hot Rods & High Heels show! This fun show takes us back to when poddle skirts and soda shops were all the rage. Then after lunch at the Uptown Cafe, we’ll be “Deep in the Heart of Christmas with The Texas Tenors” – a sensational show designed to bring out that feeling of a traditional family Christmas! Everyone loves their incredible harmonies throughout the year, but the sounds are extra fabulous at Christmastime! Then it’s dinner at the Pickin’ Porch Grill before we enjoy the Presley’s Country Jubilee Evening Show, the first show to open on 76 Country Boulevard! After 40 years, the tradition continues with all our country Christmas favorites, southern gospel and comedy. 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

 

Day 4 – Branson 

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel, followed by the Doug Gabriel Show, filled with variety, a talented cast, rib-tickling comedy and a terrific ensemble of musicians. Plus, Doug plays his World Famous Mufftar, a guitar made out of a 1969 Thunderbird muffler! Later this afternoon we enjoy a cruise on the Showboat Branson Belle where we are privileged to enjoy R&J Exclusive prime Captain’s Row Seating as well as the Captain’s Club Dinner! Our Captain’s seats are perfect for capturing the fabulous show. Tonight we’ll be entertained by legendary singers/songwriters, the Bellamy Brothers who have 14 #1 singles in the U.S. alone! This powerful country duo is now celebrating 40 years of success. Afterwards, our Christmas spirit gauge will rise even more as we drive through the “Lights of Joy” Christmas light display! 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

 

Day 5 – Branson to Overland Park, KS 

Breakfast is served before we say goodbye to Branson & head north to the Steamboat Arabia Museum. When the mighty Steamboat Arabia sank near Kansas City on September 5, 1856, she carried 200 tons of mystery cargo. Lost for 132 years, its recovery in 1988 was extraordinary! Lying 45 feet deep beneath a Kansas cornfield, the Arabia’s payload was protected from light and oxygen and, thus, was remarkably well preserved. We’ll overnight in Kansas City. 

Hotel: Drury Inn & Suites 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Drury Kickback
