Route 66 tour

Illinois | Missouri | Kansas | Oklahoma

September 29 - October 7, 2022

This will be the first of a two part journey along Route 66. This year, we will travel by motor coach to Chicago to start our trek to Oklahoma City. Next year (2023), Uniglobe will offer part two of this tour flying to the western part of Route 66 to continue the journey.
