Millions of people the world over will be tuning in to watch history repeat itself – when the first African-American President, becomes the first African-American President to be elected to a second term – an event that may not be repeated again in any of our lifetimes. Some lucky Californians will be witnessing this moment, not via stream or television, but in person. Sactrips.com is the only tour company (in California) offering this once-in-a-lifetime tour that takes people from the capital of California, on an insider’s tour of NYC, and culminates in a day trip to the capital of the country for the President’s inauguration.
Grady O’Bryant, Director of Tours, founded Sactrips.com to fill a desperately needed void: quality tours of international destinations – from Sacramento, California. “All the other companies required travelers to connect with them in SF or LA; nobody was servicing the Sacramento area directly”, explained Mr. O’Bryant. It is for this reason that Sactrips.com, has cultivated a loyal following via social sites like meetup.com, facebook, and twitter that has expanded beyond Sacramento to the Bay Area, and now extends from coast to coast. “Our customers are culturally savvy, adventurous, and (largely) women, who want to see more than the typical tourist spots and enjoy outings in which someone else has done the planning and they can enjoy a large degree of independence”, says Mr. O’Bryant, whose tours tend to provide a menu of site-seeing options that tour goers can pick and choose from.
The five-day tour departs from San Francisco International Airport, and includes a land tour option, so that people can join the tour en route. Four days will be spent in NYC, with a day-trip to Washington, DC for the inauguration.
For years, presidential inaugurations have been an event of high-drama in which a compact is made between our chosen Leader-in-Chief and the constituents who have placed their trust in him (or someday, her). Schools across the nation incorporate the viewing of the inaugural speech into their classes, so that students can be engaged in, not merely spectators of, history.
It is for this reason that Sactrips.com will open its doors to travelers of all ages. “I’m bringing my children to this. It’s history being made and how often do we get to see that in our lifetime?” Mr. O’Bryant said, when asked about the tour package. “It’s a chance for us to be a part of history and lend some much needed support to New York, in the form of tourism. As a native of New York, I’m very glad to be able to contribute to their effort to rebuild.”
