Rybicki Tours L.L.C. is a group tour operator that caters to adult groups in Southeastern Michigan; offering a variety of preplanned day and overnight adventures throughout the USA and parts of Canada. We were founded in 1998 by Mike and Karen Rybicki. Both coming from extensive travel industry backgrounds, they were prepared to take on a new, exciting opportunity
together. On top of the travel company, Mike and Karen had their hands full raising three girls. From school to extra-cirricular activities to family vacations, there was never a dull moment! Flash forward to Mike and Karen retiring, their eldest daughter, Laura, is proudly working toward taking the reins of the family business. One of the many things the Rybicki family has in common, is their passion to travel. Laura feels blessed to have been able to travel to so many beautiful places growing up. Now, having the opportunity to travel for Rybicki Tours, she loves providing others with the opportunity to visit new (& old) destinations, meet new friends and make new memories- she thrilled to continue to contribute toward the family company's ongoing success!
Rybicki Tours takes pride in the fact that we are a family owned company. We are "hands-on" with the business, always available to the customers needs. We are here to make sure you feel confident and comfortable with us before, during and after your tour. Through both the planning process and actual management on the tour, we are sure to pay attention to details both big and small. From making sure you know how to use the armrest on the motorcoach - to working behind the scenes to ensure the trip is running as smooth as possible - to informing you of any pertinent information you should know about the next stop - the list goes on... and we will have it all covered! Throughout the years, Rybicki Tours has maintained an excellent quality standard- from the accommodations, restaurants and entertainment that we provide on our adventures. Let us take care of the planning, booking and implementation of the tour.
What do we need you to do? Sit back, relax and enjoy the adventure!
& Tour Manager
Laura loves her three year old son, Jackson, trying new recipes in the kitchen and making "to-do" lists [probably more than actually doing the tasks]. She graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelors in Social Work, following that with a Masters in Social Work at Loyola University in Chicago. She joined the family company in 2013 and hasn't looked back. She feels it's a blessing to be able to call this her career and takes pride in all aspects of her role in the family company.
Andrea has a golden doodle named Ozzie, loves the outdoors and watching sports. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Events & Meeting Management from Metropolitan State University in Denver, Colorado. She also holds an extensive background in the hospitality industry. We were thrilled when Andrea joined us in the travel industry in 2017. When she is not working her other job as a wedding planner/event coordinator, she is helping us out in the office.
Cathy loves to entertain and cook, as well as spend time with her family and friends. She has over 25 years in the travel industry and has recently retired from AAA. When you meet her on tour, you will automatically see that she is both very friendly and nurturing. Cathy looks forward to continuing her passion of travel through group travel. She looks forward to the opportunity to travel to destinations both near and far, showing our customers a safe, enjoyable time on the road!
Debbie comes from a big family of which she loves and is very proud of. She also loves to oil paint and garden. She is organized, kind and cares deeply for others. Just recently retiring from AAA as a travel agent, Debbie has 25 years of travel industry experience. She feels fortunate to have been able to travel all over and looks forward to continuing to see everything she can. She cannot wait to meet new people and show them a safe and fun experience on tour!
