Frank and Rowena Drinkhouse, with Rosanna (24 ) and Joshua (21)
My name is Rowena Drinkhouse and my husband and I have been planning European tours for over 25 years. We have launched Mayflower 400 Tours, as a division of Reformation Tours, to feature Mayflower-themed tours for the upcoming 2020 anniversary.
I grew up in England, only 15 miles from Harwich (which we pronounce “Harridge”) and have been familiar with the Mayflower story from childhood. When Emma from US Connections suggested we offer Mayflower itineraries, I was immediately very interested.
I’ve spent the last few years visiting key sites in England, the Netherlands, and New England. I’ve worked closely with tourism professionals, met fantastic guides, toured amazing museums, and researched the Pilgrim’s story in depth. In 2018 I organized two trips for travel professionals in the National Tour Association, to enable them to also design tours.
Whether you are a direct descendant of the Mayflower passengers, or someone who loves to investigate important historical events, I hope you find something here that will spark your interest! Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide for you or your group. Customizable group trips are always available if you don’t find an existing trip that will work for you.
Reformation Tours and Mayflower 400 Tours, dba, are covered by the industry standard Errors and Omissions insurance, issued by Berkeley. We are members of the National Tour Association and the Better Business Bureau of Eastern Missouri and Southern Illinois. I am also the Chair of the Faith Travel Association’s Advisory Board.
