We are still perfecting the details of our itineraries. The final version will be available on or before January 1, 2025.

The itinerary is subject to change at the discretion of Eclipse or Direct Travel. In particular, viewing the total solar eclipse will be weather dependent, and there is always a chance that passengers will not be able to view totality or view it only for a short period of time. Neither Eclipse nor Direct Travel makes any guarantee as to the viewing of the total solar eclipse. Keep in mind that unexpected schedule changes could affect the program. Your Tour Director will keep you fully informed of any changes to planned activities.
