Lustig Tours

Do you like to travel?
So does Das Ist Lustig!

Have you ever wanted to go to Germany and visit the places you've always heard about?
Would you like to visit places you can tell your friends about?  Would you like to travel with a small group, in a private bus with drinks, air conditioning, a lavatory, and no worries about where to park?

Join us for a trip to Germany!  Drop in on the 2018 page to see what we're planning.  Check out the 2017 page to see where we were this summer.  Check out the 2016 page to see what last summer's tour was like.

Would you like to join us in the future?  There is space available for the trip to Germany and the Netherlands (when the tulips are at their most beautiful) in April 2018!  Summer of 2019 will be returning to Bavaria and Austria.  Keep an eye on all of these pages, as we're always adding information!

Sometimes we plan a local party bus to a festival or Oktoberfest where we play.  Check back here to see if there's one coming up.
Music, fun and dancing every where we went....such a merry band of travelers....were we”

Our group trips are unique.  It's more like a family vacation with friends, complete with vacation movies!  Carl Henderson joins us for every trip.  He takes footage and photos everywhere we go, then he edits the footage together to share the experiences.  Click on the links below!

In July 2015, we embarked on an exciting research trip to Germany and the Netherlands, where we picked up a whole suitcase full of brochures from places we visited with the hopes of taking you with us for our next visit!  There is so much to be seen, tasted, experienced, discovered, and photographed.  Beautiful landscapes, imposing fortresses, romantic vinyards, relaxing waterways, exciting cultural displays, breathtaking palaces, basilicas and cathedrals...the list could go on and on!  From the centuries old cobbles under your feet to the tops of the cathedral spires, when you're in Europe, you're surrounded by unbelievable beauty and history!  
About the tour managers:  Ross and Valina of Das Ist Lustig have each traveled and performed in Europe, and Valina lived in The Netherlands for a year.  They are familiar with some of the local customs, and can speak a little of the language.  Sam is Valina's brother.  He also has experience traveling in Europe.  He will act as an assistant manager, schlepper of luggage and general good humor guy.   

Why travel with Das Ist Lustig?  You will experience Europe with a group of people who love laughter, history, architecture, nature, live music, a variety of ethnic foods, and beverages.  Hotels will be in friendly villages where the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities is left behind, and a little bit of the old ways are still alive in the day to day activity of the people who live there.  We strive to find unique places to visit as well as ensuring you get to see the some of the popular places too.  We will bring some of our instruments, so we can sing some of your favorite folk songs!
