Join us on a shopping expedition to the famous Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This isn't just a mall, it is so big that it has the largest indoor theme park in all the United States! Enjoy any of the 520+ stores and choose from 60 different restaurants. If you can't find something here, we're not sure you'll find it anywhere else. When we are done shopping the 4-stories of stores, we will enjoy one of the many attractions including Nickelodeon Universe where you can go on rides or meet Nickelodeon characters. Or try out the FlyOver America flight simulation ride that takes you on an amazing aerial tour of some of the United States landmarks and regions such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Mount Rushmore.

We will also go to the Minnesota Aquarium, which is (yes, you guessed it!) in the mall. Featuring over 10,000 sea creatures, including sharks, sea turtles, rays, jellyfish, and seahorses, this place has it all! Enjoy fun interactive activities throughout the aquarium, walk on a 300-foot-long Ocean Tunnel featuring a Giant Green Sea Turtle! See an Octopus and Garden Eels and a Ray Lagoon exhibit featuring a variety of Stingrays with a walkover deck. After we finish at the Aquarium we visit the Lego store which is an attraction by itself! The store features eight larger-than-life models including a helicopter and a LEGO robot towering over 34 feet tall! Your trip will also include eating at some great restaurants also located in the mall.

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!

  • We offer interest-free payment plans that allow you to finish paying for up to half of the trip cost after you return.

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