The Gilded Age's Alfred G. Vanderbilt and J. Pierpont Morgan required 12 hours to reach their Adirondack Wilderness Great Camps in private railroad cars, but for your group's motor coach, the Adirondack Park is just five hours or less of easy scenic driving from major metropolitan centers like New York, Boston, Montreal and Ottawa and 1 1/2 hours from Lake Placid or Lake George. Incorporate the Gilded Age Heritage Tour as a day trip package from your hotel hub in Lake Placid, Lake George or Utica.
It also makes a nice package as you pass through from one destination to the next, south-north or east-west or vice-versa. Give us a call at 315-354-5532 to book your Gilded Age package or for advice on how to make it work within your itinerary. If you desire receptive services to organize a multi-day itinerary to upstate New York, partner with Adirondack Receptive Services.  Thirty-five years of living and working in the region enable Receptive Operator Donna Pohl to ferret out the unusual and avoid the mediocre in order to give your tour that extra oomph which separates you and your tours from the herd.
Donna visits all sites before she includes them in her itineraries to verify their quality. She has numerous contacts throughout upstate New York who can provide step-on guide services and other amenities. If your group desires soft adventure or more rigorous exertion, Donna can hook you up with rafting, kayaking, ballooning, hiking, golfing and horseback riding experiences. Themed tours such as cooking, wine or beer tasting,  dancing, scrabble, quilting, spiritual renewal,  bridge or girlfriend get-aways are a specialty. Contact her at or 315-354-4134.
