Why take a club trip?

Relax and enjoy the ride on our luxury motor coach as well as the destination! We like for you to feel pampered: movies, soft drinks, water, snacks, yes even some nice wine or mimosa served after our lunch stop.

All prices are inclusive. That means no passing the hat for gratuity to driver, and step on guides. All meals are inclusive, tax and gratuity. 

Never a charge to join the club. Once you’re on the mailing or e-mail list you’re a member.

Meetings are the 2nd Monday of each month at the Ramada Inn, 9150 Baymeadows Rd., Jacksonville FL 32256 at 1 PM. Come meet the Travel club Team, Carol Russell, and Jim Uccio

Don’t have a roommate? You really need to come to the meetings. That’s the best way to meet people with the same interest as you.

If you would like to have lunch before the meeting I got this from 4 Rivers Smokehouse right next door to the Ramada. Just tell them you are with the Sunshine Travel Club/ This offer is only good on club meeting days.

What do Amelia Island and St. Augustine have in common?

Jacksonville!!! “Where Your Florida Fun Begins! “

Jacksonville is the perfect hub and spoke city for all groups and individuals ( some of these trips for groups of 30 + only ). Just unload your luggage once, and take day trips to fun places like, Okefenokee Swamp GA, Jekyll Island GA, Amelia Island FL, Ft. George Island, St. Augustine FL, we call it island hopping by coach. These are just a few of the exciting one day destinations from Jacksonville.

I would like to introduce my company and myself  to you. The name of my company is TourTime, Inc.. and my name is Jim Uccio. We are a receptive tour operator for  Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Amelia Island, and surrounding areas. We help group leaders and planners put together fun activities for their groups.

Since 1995 we have been helping corporate, and Military reunion groups, family & class reunions. We tell the true fun gossip stories:-) and history. Learn Florida history that, if you didn't know, started right here in Jacksonville! In 1562 French named our St. Johns River the river May that is how Mayport got its name. 1564 French settled Jacksonville Fort Caroline, and St. Augustine 1565 the Spanish. 

We can help with deluxe motor coach transportation, van, and mini bus tours for smaller groups. Step on guides, attractions, and meals. We have learned that every group has their own special needs, we can work out these details with you. All you have to do is show up for the coach and have fun. This can be arranged in one low cost package.

  We are registered with the state of Florida as a seller of travel, our registration # is ST-24492.
( state requirement for any company offering tours, and step on guides )

We are members of  Visit Jacksonville. Please feel free to check us out.

Jim Uccio

I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Uccio and TourTime since 1996 on a local Miami school’s annual Florida History Tour. Jim has put together a comprehensive program covering from Amelia Island to St. Augustine that is educational and fun. The trip encompasses several days and all the details from planning the itinerary, transportation, accommodations and meals are all handled in a professional manner by Jim and his company. He truly caters to these children and their parents and they always come back very satisfied with the trip.

I always look forward to working with Jim as I know my clients best interests are always his top concern.

Cara and I have never forgotten your personal tour showing us the area north of Mayport: Kingsley Plantation and farther north to Amelia Island. We also had to opportunity last July during a meeting with the new (to us) sales director, Karen Howell, to forward your name to another reunion committee that was searching for a "good" tour company. Apparently their first choice didn't bother showing up to meet with them so I was more than happy to tell them of our experience with you. They were from an aircraft carrier so they should have a large crowd to transport wherever they plan to go.

Thanks again, Jim.
