What to eat in New Orleans (much more than Beignets!)

Here at Magical Mystery Tours, we recently got to plan a mystery trip where the main criteria was that travellers wanted a long-weekend in the US where was sure to be lots of good food.

My First Cruise

Mystery Trip to…..Yosemite!

We’ve had the pleasure of doing some travel planning for our friend Melinda before, but were especially excited to hear from her in early December requesting a mystery trip to celebrate her second wedding anniversary, which just happens to fall over New Years. They were open to a variety of trips, but mostly wanted a […]
