    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is this Trip For?
    This trip is for anyone who is interested in church history and specifically that of the Mormon Battalion. You must be able to ride on a bus for 6-8 hours and be able to board a bus on your own. You also must be able to walk up to a half mile to reach some of the visitor sites along the way. 
    What Should I Bring?
    We will provide you with a packing list but temperatures in January-February will be cold in Utah and warmer in San Diego. Please plan to bring weather appropriate clothing for both locations.
    Is there a detailed Itinerary?
    A detailed itinerary will be emailed to you with your final payment invoice.  We are still finalizing the different stops and some of the logistics with our bus company. 
    Is my Deposit Refundable or the trip cost refundable if I need to cancel?
    Trip Deposits are refundable if your trip date is unable to happen or you are unable to join another battalion tour in 2022. A full refund will be offered up until 30 days prior to your travel date. Cancelations within 30 days of travel will only be entitled to a partial refund based on commitments that we will have made to the bus company, lodging, etc. We will do our best to treat each person fairly based on the situation but there is no guaranteed refund. Any refund given will be at the discretion of Glenn's travel team. We highly recommend purchasing travel insurance that will cover your trip in the event you might need to cancel. Our team can assist with reputable travel insurance providers. Click here for a travel insurance quote.
    Can I drive myself?
    No. Much of the teaching will take place while driving on the bus. If you aren't able to be on the bus you will miss the stories and the experience will not be the same. 
    Where will the group meet to join the bus?
    For the first tour, we are working on finalizing a location near the Salt Lake City, Park and Jet to join the tour bus. This will allow for an easy return flight. More details about pickup and drop off locations will be included in the final itinerary. Plan to meet the bus somewhere in Salt Lake. If you are coming from Utah County or St. George, we may be able to work with you to meet up with the bus along the way, but this will be approved on a case by case basis.
    Do I have to wear a mask or be vaccinated?
    You do NOT need to be vaccinated to join this trip nor will there be any type of mask suggestion or mask rules to participate on the trip. If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask you are welcome to do so but no person on the trip or the bus will be required or expected to wear a mask while riding the bus.  You may be required to wear a mask in California at specific locations and you will need to wear a mask during your return flight per current government requirements on air travel. 

    If you are uncomfortable being around people who are not wearing a mask, we would encourage you to wait until a future time when you do feel comfortable.

    If a store or hotel we visit has a mask rule in place and we would ask that anyone in our group be respectful and willing to abide by a store owner's request if they wish to use their services. 

    By choosing to come on this trip, you agree to release Glenn Rawson, his team, Amazing Vacations and companies with whom he works from any liability for any injury, sickness, disease or accident that may happen as a result of participating in the trip. 
    When is full payment due?
    Full payment is due within 45 days of your scheduled travel date. 
    Can I pay with a Credit Card?
    You can use a credit card or check to pay for your trip. Checks can be mailed to Amazing Vacations USA, PO Box 427, Hooper, UT 84315
