Tours by Region

Two thousand twenty-three will mark the 63rd year Presley Tours has offered professionally guided motorcoach tours throughout the United States and Canada and select International destinations.

Wayman Presley wanted to offer the people of Southern Illinois and its surrounding communities the opportunity to travel and see the natural and manmade beauty of the United States. Little did he know that this business would still be strong and fulfilling this goal six decades later.

With this same spirit and pride, we present you with our 2023 lineup of both old and new tours in this comprehensive brochure. Favorites like Yellowstone, Coastal Virginia, and New England & Cape Cod are back. Two tips for our potential new customers; first, these trips fill early, and second, take a look at Southwest Canyonlands; we are told this is our most beautiful trip.

We are also excited to offer some new or returning past trips; Almost Heaven West Virginia, Texas Panhandle, and an old favorite, Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup.

Enjoy browsing this brochure, and call our office with any questions. We love to talk about tours.

Several years ago, we were helping one of our longtime customers who was forced to leave a trip after just a few days. He had left his passport home and could not board our cruise ship leaving New Orleans for international waters. He paid us the nicest compliment: “It’s nice to see the spirit of Wayman Presley live on at Presley Tours.” That spirit does indeed live on with our operations team and travel directors. We love designing and operating our tours and showing you our country’s beauty. We hope you will take the time to join us in 2023.

We are looking forward to seeing you On the Road.
