Welcome to You & Your Group
Pontiac welcomes tours of all sizes. Our Tourism department is ready to
work with travel industry professionals to ensure that your group has a
great time. Whether you are looking for a selection of attractions which
will require only a few hours time, or a full day's activities, we can
meet your needs.
Pontiac welcomed more than 170 tour groups in 2016. For those groups who arrange their visit through the Pontiac Tourism office, we provide each tour group member with a complimentary "goodie bag" with maps, brochures, and a souvenir gift. We can also provide each group member with an "Official" City of Pontiac Route 66 button.
Individualized & Entertaining Visit
Our tourism office works with tour group operators and guides to ensure that each group has an individualized and entertaining visit. We can arrange trolley and/or tram tours, help with meal reservations, and provide you with "hub and spoke" tour suggestions.
We can arrange private tours led by qualified docents to our historic homes. Or your group members can stroll around the downtown shopping district visiting museums, or viewing our collection of over 20 outdoor murals using our maps and brochures as guides. We approach each coach tour visit as an opportunity to set new records in hospitality and fun.
Add a Pontiac Jolly Trolley Tour
The Pontiac Tourism Office would be pleased to arrange a trolley tour of Pontiac's murals, Lincoln sites, and other attractions for your group. The typical trolley tour takes about 40 minutes and includes commentary by a qualified docent. If your group is larger than 25, we can split your group into two smaller groups and while one visits our museums, the other can ride the trolley.
Large Groups Overnight
For Groups of 30 or more who stay overnight in Pontiac, the tourism office can offer a range of evening entertainment options. Contact us for more information.
Be sure to ask us about our VIP (Visitor In Pontiac) program. Your
clients will be thrilled to get a collector's souvenir VIP button, and
by wearing the button as they travel around Pontiac, they will receive
preferential treatment and special considerations from local merchants.
Bank Travel Planners
Pontiac is proud to be a member of the Bank Travel Association. We work with Bank Loyalty Groups to ensure that each visit is a memorable experience. We encourage you to contact us before your visit. We will introduce you to some of the options we have for your group.
