About Story

Small Group Travel Leader

Story Land & Sea is a family-owned company based in Colorado in the USA. We provide distinctive touring and cruising vacations. Our branded tours feature True Small Group Tour Vacation experiences with no more than 16 travelers on your tour. This is our most popular method of touring and we're proud to be recognized by travel expert Arthur Frommer for our small-group touring approach.

Why should I go with Story Land & Sea Tours over other leading brand names? Other than the size of our group, the variety in our itineraries, the location and quality of our hotels, the type of dinners we include and the service-driven nature of our tour staff...hmm, what else is there? Oh yeah! You'll never be on a large bus, you'll never scamper after your tour director who is 40 plus people ahead of you, and you'll always be treated as our guest!

Our Philosophy is Service-Driven We strive to provide a personal service unmatched in the touring industry - from pre-trip conversations and consultation to on-tour experience and follow-up after the tour - service-driven is our goal.

Our History Mark Story, the founder of Story Land & Sea , began leading and hosting groups of people on tours and cruises starting in 1988. After many successful years of creating exciting group adventures as a part-time proprietor, Mark expanded the company to a full-time operation in 2003. When you travel with Story Land & Sea your travel event is covered by our Tour Operator Professional Liability Insurance which includes a 1 million dollar "Errors & Omissions" policy. We require proof of liability coverage from our partner suppliers.

We choose to offer our guests only the finest in quality hotels, and clean, comfortable economy hotels on certain itineraries. We offer select and a la carte dining, gala entertainment, more admissions than other leading tour operators as well as gratuities on most of our Story Land & Sea ' branded travel events. We've found that our guests prefer our gratuities for our Tour Captains to remain optional and therefore they are at your discretion. Every trip is under the guidance of your travel host, the Story Land & Sea Tour Captain. Your Captain is there to ensure your Story Land & Sea trip is the vacation of a lifetime. They are friendly, service-driven professionals who care about your satisfaction!

By going the extra mile in providing outstanding service, knowledgeable guides, great menus and amenities, we believe you'll come back to us again and again.

Compare us with the larger companies and you'll see the Story Land & Sea difference: personal service, genuine caring individuals who go the extra mile...we call it, "The Story Land & Sea Way."
