One star is being too kind! I have been on many ELG ski trips but this one I was just on Feb 28-Mar 2nd has got to be thee worst ever. We were scheduled to depart at 5pm. However our bus was broken down & was not replaced until 8pm when they told us it would be at our location at 5:15. After loading the bus, we still had to make another pick up. We didn't even get on the road until 9:30pm having us arrive at the Eisenhower at 11:35pm. Check in was more than a half hour because there were only 2 ladies checking all of us in. We missed the Rep Your City meet & greet with refreshments and the Walmart run. Open bar until 2am? Yeah right!!! Thay ran out of drinks at 1:15am!!! Saturday morning breakfast was cold!! People signed up for bowling only to get there and it was CLOSED. They were then told "Oh that was last weekends activities" Why was that even made an option if it was for last week? Laser tag was right across the road but guess what? People had to find that out on their own because that was NOT one of the options on the activities list. Not only did they run out of food for Saturdays dinner but Sundays as well. Sunday, they replaced baked tilapia with BOXED FROZEN FISH STICKS!! Talk about cutting the budget way too short!! On Saturday, the game room was open but there were NO games going on. I guess we were supposed to bring our own huh? NONE of the equipment in the fitness room worked. One of our outlets didnt work so we had to unplug a lamp so we could charge our phones so now of course we dont have proper lighting in our room. The maintenance man told us to jiggle the plug because the outlet was really loose. Yeah ok!!! And kill ourselves?? I think NOT!!! I asked housekeeping to clean our room TWICE and they NEVER DID. As I stated before, I have been on many ski trips but this one was VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING!! We had an extra body on the bus so the CIC had to ride back seating on the steps of the bus. ALL OF THESE ISSUES COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED but like I said, I guess they wanted to cut the budget this year. This is unacceptable and I will not do another ELG event as this put a serious damper on my bday weekend
2B on the Road Travel Club, started out with a meet & greet at my house Friday at 4:00pm, we boarded the bus at 6:00pm and did stop until Sunday night when we got off the bus. We had a wonderful ski weekend in February. The whole weekend was filled with activity, something to do every minute. I didn’t have to leave the hotel at all. I dance until 4:00am each night/morning. I couldn’t participate in all the activities because I had to rest. I can’t wait to go on my next trip. I will be seeing you Eastern Light Getaways for the Crab Feast in July, book my group. The only thing that could have made it better is if it was FREE.
Eastern Lights Getaways is the way to go. I say this based off of my personal experiences touring with Eastern Lights. All activities were well planned and organized. The staff was very professional and friendly. They made my birthday weekend the best I ever had. I highly recommend this comapny.

I was very disappointed with eastern light getaway over our weekend getaway ski trip on 2/8/13 2/10/13. The entertainment was cancelled and they gave us other groups, but the comedian was not paid so that person did not perform. We did pay for that person whomever it was. Plus they had us to believe that we were staying at the remodeled hotel and put us in the back hotel that is so old it's a dump. I didn't like the fact that Eastern Light Getaways sent our first groups to North Carolina to perform. With some of the breakfast meats could have had a little more variety. They put the shrimps out after everyone had already eating. The hotel was a mess and they had the nerve to inspect our room like we did something to it. My nephew's wife couldn't make the trip at the last second, your company would not allow us to put someone in the room with him so he wouldn't lose his $375.00. I don't see anything wrong with switching another person to take the place of another. But because your company is so greedy I look at it like your company is like a con man. But because our group did go to party we had to make the best of it. I had a good time. But in the near future please don't do this to us again, it was our first time using your company and you would have thought that you would take care of us to keep us coming back.
I can't wait to see what winter trips will come next year. Every year I go I have a blast. I love the comedians and all of the entertainment. I was suprised when they started having the concerts at one main arena, but i enjoyed it all the same so either way it doesn't matter. The best shows, at an affordable price!
Great time had By All – I have been traveling with ELG for the past few years. I find the staff to be second to none. The trips are affordable, hotel accomodations and food worth the money. The weekend is packed with activities making the time soar. The concerts have been very exciting. The artists mingle with the fans up close and personal.
As an Event Planner, it has been a pleasure to work with ELG thereby offering my clients a funfilled weekend and a bang for their buck. Plan your next weekend gettaway with ELG. You wont regret it.
Great Trip – I have used Eastern Light Getaways for 5 years now and love the trips. The concerts rock and the entertainers show up. I have seen Fantasia, Frankie Beverly and the Maze and this past winter The Isley Brothers and Stephanie Mills. Alot of great memories made with friends and family. We love the PJ party on Friday night and always dress for the occasion its so fun. The open bar is just that open and they always have a great selection of drinks. We hit the outlet stores for shopping on Saturday and the casino on Sunday. The hotels are always clean and very nice. Definetly try out a tour you will have a great time.
Nothing Like It – I have done many trips with Eastern Light both Ski trips and Seafood Getaways and all of my experiences have been wonderful the staff at Eastern Light overall works with u Julie who has been my representative from day one has always been there for any problems or questions I have had..From the Pj Parties to the Comedy Shows, Pool parties also the Theme parties my groups have always had a ball..Open Bar is exactly that with no complaints.. The Hotels that I have been to I rarely had complaints if so they were handled I do recommend going thru Eastern Light for your next getaway for I have experienced nothing but the Best!!!!
HAVE A BALL ALL WEEKEND LONG!!! – I have been doing these kind of trips now for several years. I have also used other companies but none compare to what ELG has given me in concerts,activities,hotel comfort,and customer service. No other Tour Operator has given me Top Knotch entertainment (that really shows up) like ELG. Always plenty of food to go around and the bar was always fully stocked withTopShelf brands that my friends and I enjoy to drink(Henny,Aliza,Barcardi,Absolute ect). Our trip was fun from start to finish starting from our luxury bus (we called it THE PARTY BUS)to our 1st nite @ the Pj party. I read some of the pass reviews and must say if your hotel changed "U PAID LATER THEN 30 DAYS B4 THE TRIP" as there Tour Agreement states. Any issues with the hotel stay should be address with the hotel cause at the end of the day I don't think ELG owns the hotels or the buses they just rent them. There has been some rowdy ppl on these trips I have been on but if you were talk to as if you were a child then maybe u or part of your group deserved it (just a thought) anyway this is my review of this company and there trips that I have attended in the past and plan on doing in the future......YO GO EASTERN LIGHT YA'LL ARE THE BOMB!!!
