We have some great tours lined up for you and your Accompanying Persons, both during and after the Congress. We have enlisted the services of Patty’s Tours, a travel company local to the Reno/Tahoe area that has been providing these services for more than a decade, and they have been a pleasure to work with in putting these tour packages together.

All of the information for our tours is at Patty's Tours. This is also the page for you to book your reservations. Be sure to take a look at the Tour Details for each of these excellent tours and decide which one (or ones) you want to attend.
