(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. This unique blend of history and hands-on activities is a new feature for Cherokee Nation’s Cultural Tourism Group, which proudly promotes its history through an array of Cherokee-centric experiences and activities.

“This package is very exclusive to the group tour industry,” said David Stewart, CEO of Cherokee Nation Entertainment, which manages the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and the Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism Group. “We know that once groups experience our traditional culture and hospitality, coupled with our unique entertainment offerings, their trip to the Cherokee Nation will surely be one to remember.”
