For anyone who is looking for a tour operator for a charter or trip for your group, I would not hesitate to recommend Ready Bus Lines. Tom and his staff have been instrumental in planning numerous trips for my music groups including trips to New York, Florida, Chicago, and many trips to the Twins Cites. We are now working on a grand trip to Los Angeles in the spring of 2015. I have talked with other tour operators and no one can come close to Tom and his staff. Add to that the great drivers and professional planning and you will have a trip of the lifetime.
I have traveled to St. Louis, Washington D.C. and New York with Ready Travel and Logistics , and each tour was thoughtfully planned, and ran smoothly. Every step of the way, Tom Ready was responsive to our specific needs, and took a personal interest in the success of our trip! I highly recommend Ready Travel and Logistics for anyone planning a performance tour for music groups!

The Houston High School Band and Choir traveled to Kansas City. They performed two concerts: one in Des Moines and one at Union Station in Kansas City. During the four day trip, the groups toured many of the sites of Kansas City including: The American Jazz Museum, Negro Baseball Leagues Museum, Federal Reserve Bank, Arabia Steamboat Museum, Harry S. Truman Presidential Library, Hallmark Headquarters and Visitors Center,World War One Liberty Museum, National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, and Union Station.
Some of the highlights of the trip were: The 10 second reverberation at Union Station, Impromptu performance at Hallmark Visitor Center, Getting a “loft” room at the hotel, 72 degrees Thursday, Receiving $165 in shredded currency from the Federal Reserve, Seeing the tons of cargo rescued from the Steamboat Arabia which sank in 1856 and was dug up in 1988 (they still have 60 tons to process), Seeing what trench warfare was like at the WWI Museum, and Playing Hoops at the College Basketball Hall of Fame.
Houston Band Director, Paul Grupe, stated, “The meals, especially, were fabulous! Our students really enjoyed the meals at the Buca di Beppo and the Smokehouse. The Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant served us Salad, Bread, Spaghetti, Fettuccini, Chicken Cacciatore and Cheesecake. The Smokehouse BBQ was probably the students favorite with Beans, Bread, Fries and platters of BBQ Chicken, Turkey, Ribs and Brisket. Some of the students ate for 40 minutes!”
“This was a great trip for us! The sites were wonderful. The timing and layout of the days were great! Our driver, Larry, was excellent! And the rooms and hospitality at the hotel were superb! They had a hot breakfast for us every morning and kept their Snacks Hour open for us for our arrival on Thursday.”
