Twin Travel Concepts, a tour operator in the Hudson Valley outside NY City, is proud to announce the acquisition of All American Tours, a dynamic tour operator for over 50 years.
After 53 groundbreaking years, David Burns and All American Tours, Inc. will now partner with Twin Travel Concepts as a dba of Twin Travel Concepts, keeping the brand intact. David Burns will continue as Managing Director of All American Tours offering his vast experience to Twin Travel Concepts, while focusing on sales and new programming. All American Tours will rely upon Twin Travel Concepts’ five- member team, and operational and technical abilities.
Together, they will expand their creative offerings throughout the East, South and Midwest. Pre-formed, retail, and custom groups now have greater options for custom itineraries geared towards their needs and budgets.
Nick Calderazzo, President of Twin Travel Concepts, says, “David Burns’ 53 years steering this brand through so many industry changes is a testament to his tenacity, creativity, and dedication to this industry. We are honored to be partnered with his legacy and brand.” Burns says, “Calderazzo’s innovative approach and deft adjustments to industry fluctuations creates the opportunity for All American Tours to flourish in this quick changing environment. I am so excited for this next chapter!”
Both Burns and Calderazzo credit much of their companies’ successes and growth to their active membership and/or board service in many industry organizations. Partnerships with Travel Alliance Partners, National Tour Association and American Bus Association along with other smaller regional groups have proved invaluable in creating lasting partnerships and new content. With their combined experiences and these industry partnerships, All American Tours and Twin Travel Concepts will continue to flourish.
Though the back-office is moving to Twin Travel Concepts’ Hudson Valley location, David Burns’ office will remain in Missouri, and emails and phone numbers will stay the same.
