Our Story...

DIRECTIONS Tours Founder, Tod DeHart, began working in the hotel hospitality industry in the early 1990's.  After graduating with a degree in business and communications from the University of South Alabama in 1994, Tod began his travel career in leading world-wide group tours across the USA and beyond.  In a few short years, he would span the country coast-to-coast and to places afar including Africa, Europe, Mexico, Caribbean, South/Central America and Canada.  Every mile giving him more experience in group travel and the logistics of making a successful journey for all.  In 2001, Tod founded DIRECTIONS Tours with much pride, dedication and passion of travel and those who would entrust him to travel with.

Our Continued Dedication...

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic brought the travel industry to a virtual standstill, and our operations were paused and challenged.  DIRECTIONS Tours was the first tour company in the region to "reboot" travel with our successful "Social Distancing Tours" accommodating less than 15 guests following strict health protocols.  We soon learned to navigate travel in a safe and responsible operation. During that time:
• We redesigned, streamlined and implemented new online options and customer service. 
• We Strengthened our tourism partnerships with companies and organizations that reflect our values, principles, and standards. Including; Drury Hotels®, American Bus Association®, National Tour Association® and Altair Travel.
In 2023, We inaugurated our own branded motorcoaches.  With our partnership and sister company, Motor Coach Family of Brands, we rolled out our new state-of-the-art transportation fleet for our traveling guests!  Proudly the only tour company in our region offering our own branded transportation and Resident Drivers, ensuring our safe and responsible commitment on the road.


Our Pledge...

Our Pledge and Promise is simple - to offer our guests excellent service from customer care to onboard experience; quality and creative tour itineraries; honest and value pricing.  We will never stop working to earn your continued loyalty. 

A sincere Thank You for your business!
