Cherokee Nation Offers Tours, Workshops, Specials At Hard Rock Cafe
(Tulsa, Oklahoma) - The more the merrier certainly applies to Cherokee Nation group tours, which now features everything from culture and crafts to food and fun, for groups of 10 or more during a pleasurable day-trip, weekend getaway or weeklong vacation.
In addition to experiencing a Cherokee Nation customized cultural tour, groups have a variety of activities to add-on to their trip including:
basket weaving; workshops on genealogy and storytelling; scenic byway tours; hiking expeditions; Illinois river guided float/kayak trips; wine tours; traditional pottery workshop; language and syllabary workshop; native plant workshop; buffalo grass dolls workshop; traditional Cherokee cuisine; and a Cherokee history workshop.
Each group tour add-on activity can be sold separately or together with the cultural tour.
