Stadium Tour of Camden Yards
June 20, 2008 - We began our day with an escorted tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. After being blown away by this facility the night before, it was great to get a behind the scenes tour of such a great ballpark. It's just too bad that Boog's Barbeque wasn't open for another round...Group in Orioles dugout while on stadium tour

The tour itself was fantastic. We started on Eutaw Street, which is now the space between the outfield seats and the warehouse, and managed to make our way through every level of the ballpark. Our guide, Susan, led us through the tour that was part Orioles history, ballpark history, as well as Baltimore facts and history.

Here's our group sitting in the Orioles dugout.

This has to have been the most thorough stadium tour that I have ever been on. I believe it was the most enjoyable, too. Thanks to Susan and everyone at the tours office in Baltimore!

Setting Up Group Travel Tours

Posted by Big League Tours on Wed, Nov 16, 2011 @ 03:30 PM

April 1, 2008 - Many times, we talk with individuals in an organization or group who are put in charge with organizing a group travel tour who doesn't normally handle travel - i.e. customers are coming into town, the "team mom" is planning a trip, an incentive package is offered to employees, or a group of friends wants to meet in a new city.

If you've never planned a large or small group tour, the task can be daunting, especially if the tour is in a city with which you are unfamiliar. Sports tours, particularly sports travel packages, can be a great way to minimize your effort and stress and allow you to relax while you successfully host the group tour.

Whether it's a baseball road trip you seek or some other sports tour, consider working with a tour operator who can offer you a package tour customized to your group, many times obtaining discounts because of their travel network, and providing you a service that will save you valuable time.
