Welcome to Lodestar Bus Lines & Tours, Inc....

Gloria Alt

Welcome... I would like to thank you for visiting our web site.  My name is Gloria Alt and I am the Tour Manager for Lodestar Bus Lines and Tours.  For the past 40 years I have worked in the travel industry and many people in the area are familiar with my experience and knowledge of travel and my reputation for wanting the very best for my customers.  The owner of Lodestar, Mr. Harry Oppy, has been in the motor coach business since 1983 and has earned a reputation of a quality motor coach company with the very best equipment in the industry.

Voted "Simply The Best" with the Tribune Democrat in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 ....

Lodestar Bus Lines was voted "Simply the Best Motorcoach" by the Tribune Democrat readers every year since this nomination first came out in 2003.  We are very proud of this honor and feel that we have earned it because our customers are Simply the Best!  Our bus tours and cruises are escorted by our office staff and several other Tour Guides and we always have a great time traveling with our customers.  So many of you are now like family to us.

Our Office Staff

Please feel free to contact our office and we would be more than happy to assist you in setting up your own Group Tour for your club or organization; or why not join Lodestar on one of our many Bus tours and Cruises that you will find in our book or on this website.  Keep in mind that we are always adding on new tours, so give us your e-mail address and we will be happy to send you updates.  If E-mailing us, please provide us with your contact information, including your address and phone number if necessary, so we will be able to reach you.  Your personal information will not be shared with any other companies.  We will be happy to add your e-mail address to our mailing list for updates and future tour and cruise additions.  If you would like to opt out of receiving future emails from us, please let us know that when you contact us.

We can also help you plan your honeymoon, tropical vacation, or even a tour to Europe.  We are here to help you with that "dream" vacation.  We welcome you to stop and visit us at our office anytime you are in the area!
