About Magical Mystery Tours
As the original mystery travel provider, Magical Mystery Tours has been planning mystery vacations since 2009 and has been featured in numerous local and national media outlets, including O, the Oprah Magazine; The Wall Street Journal; The Washington Post; Vogue; The New York Times; Good Housekeeping; Travel + Leisure; and AFAR.
Magical Mystery Tours was officially born in 2009 when founders Denise Chaykun and Stephanie Whitesel booked a surprise vacation for a busy friend who needed a break, but didn’t have time to research and plan a trip.
The conditions: He would provide travel dates, a budget, some basic parameters, and his credit card information…and his destination would be a secret until he arrived at the airport.
The trip was a hit, and with that, Magical Mystery Tours was born as the first mystery travel company! Ever since then, our goal has been to provide customers with enjoyable, individually customized, and care-free vacation experiences.
