Nothing says Happy Holidays like spending time with Special Journeys on our annual Yuletide trip to Branson at Christmas! We'll travel down to the Ozarks to enjoy holiday shows, delicious meals, and some holiday shopping.

Our trip to Branson will begin with an evening show at the Grand Country Resort to watch the area's best Quartet, New South perform their Grand Jubilee Christmas. The quartet has an astonishing number of accolades, including "Entertainers of the Year", "Branson's Best Variety Show", "Comedian of the Year" and "Quartet of the Year". It will be a fantastic show to start our Yuletide Journey. Mark, David, Luke, and Jon will sing all of our favorite holiday tunes such as Walking in A Winter Wonderland, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and It Came Upon A Midnight Clear. And if you think Luke looks familiar, you're right! He was a contestant on American Idol! The talent of the band and singers is truly remarkable, and will have us wanting more.

The next day we make our way to the Hughes Brothers Christmas show where they will transport us to a Christmas wonderland. We will listen to spectacular vocal harmonies, exciting dances, and the light-hearted humor that makes the Hughes Brothers so enjoyable to watch. The brother's show has won Best Christmas Show 11 years in a row. Santa even makes a visit onstage with a special story that reminds of the reason for the season.

The next show we will watch at the Kings Castle Theatre for one of the town's largest holiday productions, Branson's Christmas Wonderland. This show offers extravagant candy-striped costumes, exciting choreography, and splendid scenery while a sparkling cast of singers and dancers take us on an unforgettable sleigh ride.

Our final day brings us to the Brett's Family Christmas, because as we know, a holiday visit to Branson wouldn't be complete without experiencing this show. This family knows how to dazzle with world-class singing, dancing, comedy, songwriting, and production. The show also includes a mini feature with a patriotic tribute while singing "I'll Be Home For Christmas".

In between the stunning shows, we'll dine out at our favorite Branson restaurants, and enjoy holiday shopping.

Be sure to sign up for this trip to get you in the holiday spirit!

Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™ & Full Fare Price Disclosure

  • Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™ means there are absolutely no hidden costs - everything is included: all meals (breakfast at hotel, lunch and dinner both at a restaurant), lodging in your own, regular bed, and all transportation including local pickup and drop off in your city, all attractions, entertainment and activities, an experienced tour leader and experienced staff care in 1:3 and 1:4 small groups. Travelers only need to bring souvenir and snack money.

  • All prices shown are round trip prices and include all mandatory taxes and fees. Note: Soda cards on Royal Caribbean cruises are at your own expense (to keep the trip price fair for everyone).

  • Vendor & fuel price increases between the time of the traveler’s initial deposit and the due date for final payment are covered by Special Journeys—you never pay extra for Your Guaranteed Cost Trip™.

  • Travelers that need to travel with a dedicated 1:1 staff require an additional, reduced price fare to cover the costs for that staff.

  • All trips with a domestic flight component cover one 50 pound checked bag. See the trip description for 10+ day trips as 2 bags are usually covered then. The cost for additional or overweight bags will be shown on your trip itinerary. There is no fee for carry-on bags but they are limited in size to the then current airline standards.

  • Medical equipment does not count as luggage but you must notify us in advance so we have room to transport this equipment!

  • Some trips require a passport (see trip description). We recommend getting the passport book, not the passport card. It can take 2 to 3 months to receive a passport so apply as early as possible. They are good for 10 years!

  • You can send in money (pre-pay) for a trip to be selected later.
