“We try every year to top the ambitious calendar of Travel Club events from the previous year,” said Phil Baldwin, Citizens Bank Chief Executive Officer. “We believe we have topped this year’s wonderful 10-day tour of Classic Italy with a spectacular 15-day tour of Greece in 2020!”
The Travel Club’s annual calendar always offers a premium international tour, a prime domestic trip, plus a variety of regional activities each month, including plays, concerts, museums, state parks, historic sites and other attractions.
Reservations can now be made for all events, including the “Discover Greece and Its Islands” tour next May, and a Christmastime visit to New York City in early December 2020.
