University of Mount Union Choir

"Anyone who has traveled with a musical organization is greatly aware of the awesome responsibility he/she faces and the complexity and importance of the non-musical arrangements (ground and flight transportation, scheduling concerts, rehearsal spaces and times, meals, lodging, etc.) Such arrangements must be planned so that the performers and conductors are able to focus on their performances and are free from concerns regarding the myriad of logistical complexities for a trans-oceanic tour. The outstanding assistance we received from the staff at Gateway from the outset of our tour through the return flight home could not have been executed more perfectly. Gateway is and will continue to be my choice of travel companies."

C.M. Shearer, Interim Director

When the invitation arrives, make Gateway YOUR second call!
We're ready to help make the most of your trip to the Rose Bowl.


Bowl Games in foreign countries generate the same enthusiastic crowds as in the U.S. For many, the only ingredient missing to complete this "American football experience" has been American bands.

East Coast

New England and America's East Coast, all the way down to the panhandle, have far more to offer than just Boston, New York and Washington, DC. There's something for any group looking to explore these regions. Try a Christmas parade in Atlanta or the International Azalea Festival in Norfolk. Beaches, coastal scenery, mountains and historic landmarks can all be combined for your ideal tour.
