  Activity Levels

On all trips offered by DeNure Tours, travellers must be able to walk up the steps of the motor coach and handle carry-on luggage without the assistance of DeNure staff. At airports, travellers will be required to handle luggage at check-in counters. Travellers on all tours have the option to make their own plans at any time and/or top opt out of the planned itinerary, providing the tour director is aware and in agreement.

1 Rabbit: Easy
This is a relaxed type of stay-put holiday where you can choose to relax in your hotel room, and/or enjoy a day on your own. Hotels have elevators, and if there is no restaurant in the hotel, transportation will be offered for you to dine out. Our Florida and Myrtle Beach destinations fall into this category, although many participants take part in more demanding optional activities.

2 Rabbits: Moderately Easy  
Travellers could be required to walk a distance of up to 500 metres (1600 feet) on fairly level terrain. Walking one flight of stairs with railings may be necessary. There is time during the day for you to rest on your own. Ocean cruising would fall into this category, although participants may take part in more demanding excursions if they choose.

3 Rabbits: Moderate    
Travellers will occasionally have to walk on uneven surfaces and through hilly terrain. Walking tours may be on the itinerary with periods of up to an hour of walking at a gentle pace. There may also be a few one-night stays, but often the majority of your trip is spent in just a handful of hotels. Most of our North American sightseeing tours fall into this category.

4 Rabbits: Moderately Challenging      
Travellers could be required to walk on uneven surfaces or through hilly terrain, up to a distance of 1 kilometre at a time. The day could be busy with activities from morning until night. Any rest is taken while travelling on the motorcoach from one attraction to another. There may also be a number of one-night stays that necessitate the need to pack up each morning. Most of our overseas tours fall into this category.
5 Rabbits: Challenging        
These tours offer very limited accessibility and guests can expect to experience uneven surfaces (i.e. cobblestones) and hilly ground on a regular basis. The itinerary could also include well paced walking tours. This level applies to a few of our overseas tours as many historical landmarks tend to demand greater effort to reach. This also applies to our Newfoundland tours as accessibility options are scarce in some remote areas.

Loved our time at the Beach! Patsy and Larry made us feel like we were at Home in Ontario without the snow!

Our express trip to Myrtle Beach with DeNureTours this spring was most enjoyable and relaxing. We are an older couple (82 and 90) and felt right at home with everyone. Your drivers are exceptional and so courteous to all. We felt most secure with them. The Coach was very clean and tidy. The Hotel was delightful and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching the bathers etc. The girls looking after our room always had a smile. We enjoyed all the shows and trips to the flea market. Larry and Patsy do an exceptional job. We are always promoting your tour company because we know first hand your company is the BEST.

We have just returned from the 17 day trip to Myrtle Beach and had a wonderful time. It was our first visit there and we had been told by others that we would love it. We certainly did and we plan to return in the future! The bus drivers - Russ, Scott, Bill & Paul did a great job and kept us all safe coming and going. Patsy & Larry are the greatest! They couldn't do enough for everyone there. They were always available to answer any questions and give guidance. We also enjoyed learning some new crafts from Tiffani. Her two boys helped at breakfast the morning of the election, since they had a day off school, and we enjoyed talking to them and they really enjoyed being there. The activity bus drivers down there - Ron, Dave & Mike took good care of us on our outings and Ron kept us well entertained. We tried to take in most outings and shows and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Patsy & Larry gave us a very good selection to choose from. Thanks to Denure and their employees for making this trip a memorable one for us!

We travelled with DeNure Tours last March to Myrtle Beach. We enjoyed the Ocean Reef Resort very much. The staff were very accommodating, the couple that helped with picking out the activities we were interested in could not have been more helpful. All shuttle bus excursions were very much to our enjoyment for lack of a better word. We are seniors and are past striking out on our own, and the help we had was wonderful. Patsy & Larry were great. The meals, the shopping, site seeing, the shows all much to our liking. We will certainly consider doing the Myrtle Beach trip again, only stay longer.

I was leafing through the Toronto Star on a bleak day early in January 2012 when a small advertisement caught my eye - it offered some fun and relaxation in Myrtle Beach with an Ocean View and an activity program including shuttle transportation and the Hospitality of Larry and Patsy Plemmons and their helpers.

I made the call to DeNure Tours and booked John and I for early March. This was our first experience on an overnight bus journey and to Myrtle Beach so we did not know what to expect or how things would go. Being a couple of seniors we have some health and age related challenges. Happily we were picked up by the bus in St. Catharines which is only 15 minutes from our home and we boarded a bus full of happy holidayers mostly of our own age group. We had two very competent drivers who looked after us royally and kept us informed as we progressed on our journey. When we arrived in Myrtle Beach we were introduced to Larry and Patsy, our group program leaders par excellence. I have to tell you that their hospitality is second to none - they and their helpers looked after us like their own family - nothing was too big or too small to be taken care of. They made sure that we were all well informed, that we were all kept on track, that we did not get lost or left behind anywhere! What a superb job they do with a bunch of motley travellers who all have minds of their own and opinions too!! We were shepherded around Myrtle Beach visiting great venues and wonderful theatres and restaurants and many local attractions and outings. And they made sure that our stay in the hotel was comfortable and that we had all we needed.

All in all it was a wonderful time - we felt safe and well looked after in a city and country we do not know. We are certainly planning to go back - the hotel was great, the view amazing, the beach out of this world, the entertainment wonderful, but what made it exceptional was our hosts Patsy and Larry and their helpers who go the extra mile for everyone all the time. The only thing we will change is the bus ride which was a bit too taxing for John so we will consider flying next year. Thanks for a great holiday!

We would like to thank DeNure Tours for our trip to the Ocean Reef in South Carolina. Larry & Patsy where great and looked after us well. As this was our first trip there and it was not long enough so we plan to go longer in 2013. Also we would like thank the bus drivers for there kind and safe bus ride to South Carolina. It is amazing how everyone keeps on schedule.

We have been travelling with DeNure Tours since the mid to late 90's. For the past four or five years our destination has been Myrtle Beach and we plan to return there again next year. We have just returned home from this year's trip - 31 January to 08 March. As always, it was absolutely great! The express coach is comfortable and the drivers are fun and courteous, we find the Ocean Reef an exceptional resort and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The biggest draw to the program is Larry and Patsy Plemmons. They consistently go above and beyond to ensure that each and every guest is made to feel like an important part of the group. My wife, Linda, volunteers to help with the breakfasts and I help with the clean-up so we have gotten to know them quite well. Super People who really enjoy their job to say the least! Thank you for another great holiday.

I arrived home on March 1 after three weeks at the Ocean Reef in Myrtle Beach. Patsy and Larry had an awesome plan for any program you wanted. They went overboard to try to meet any need a guest had, above and beyond the organized plan. Although early in the season, walking the beach, shopping, taking side trips, having special dinners, theatre trips and meeting amazing people from across Canada renewed my energy to cope again at home. A great treat.

We had an excellent time on your tour. There are no complaints whatsoever. We plan to take the tour again next year. The hosts and hostess' were unbeatable. Our tour was on February 14, 2012 from Lindsay Ontario. Thanks for a great vacation!

I have just arrived home from a 10 day vacation to the Ocean Reef in Myrtle Beach. Our hosts Larry and Patsy were wonderful. They are always very helpful and available.

The bus trip was a long one but, the bus drivers were very pleasant and helpful. It was nice to have a pillow and blanket.

The trip to Myrtle Beach for 10 days was wonderful. The bus drivers both going and returning home were most helpful. The pillow and blanket were very much appreciated.
Larry and Patsy at the Ocean Reef went overboard to assist everyone.

We have just returned on March 1st from a 17 day getaway to Myrtle Beach. It was our first visit to the Ocean Reef Resort which we enjoyed very much. Having all the amenities under one roof was much better than it was where we stayed previously at the Dayton House Resort. Again Larry and Patsy were great provided a good range of outings for all who wished to partake and we especially enjoyed the Theatre Shows and took in all 4 that were offered during our 2 week stay. The bus drivers did a wonderful job again getting us safely there and home again. We do hope that we will have the opportunity to do a trip to one of the DeNure sunshine destinations again in the coming years.

This was my first visit to Myrtle Beach and it certainly made a lasting impression. Larry & Patsy made me feel right at home and the other vacationers were an absolute delight to socialize with. It was just wonderful meeting everyone. I would definitely return to Myrtle Beach. The bus drivers were super and made the trip to and from just perfect.

Patricia Norman

We just retuned from our 5th trip to Myrtle Beach. We just love the whole trip from the minute you step on the bus with the great drivers. This was our first time at Ocean Reef, wonderful staff and food. The tour hosts Larry and Patsy are the greatest people. They make you feel at home the minute you get there. I am looking forward to another trip in near future.

I really enjoyed our trip down to Myrtle Beach. I am always interested in the bus motors. The drivers on our trip down were excellent. We are having a great time here. Our room is great; it is nice to listen to the ocean. Larry and Patsy work very hard to be sure that everyone is comfortable and well. I have enjoyed the theatres we have gone to so far. Having breakfast supplied each day and dinner provided once a week is much appreciated. We look forward to returning to Myrtle Beach again next year.

Keith Traynor

Bus trip down was great. Accommodation is excellent. Larry and Patsy look after us and have lots of activities to offer us. Myrtle Beach is wonderful. We have been out to eat several times. Larry and Patsy work very hard to get us good value for our dollar when we go out to dine and also to the theatre.

Marie Traynor

Myrtle Beach was great! We loved being on the Beach and flying kites with out grandson when he came for a couple of days. Patsy & Larry worked overtime to ensure that everyone had great seats at the theatre, marvellous shopping especially at Hamricks, and great meals at a wide variety of restaurants. Our two bedrooms were well equipped and had a washer & dryer.

Currently we are in Destin and loving it too. Ron & Debbie are great hosts as well!

This is without a doubt, the best DeNure tour we have been on in the past 15 years. The tour hosts have been excellent. Their knowledge of the local area is astounding, bravo!

We both think that Larry and Patsy are doing a fantastic job in Myrtle Beach. They have lots for us all to do. We enjoy the shows and the food, and find the Ocean Reef to be a very clean and comfortable place to stay.

I look forward to my annual vacations in Myrtle Beach. The care and thought that Larry and Patsy put into the program is readily apparent and much appreciated. The beach-front condo at Ocean Reef is fantastic as well. My husband, Ron, and I always return home with great memories, well rested, and anxious for a return trip the following year. Thank you to DeNure for such a fantastic time.

The best of the best!!! With the great Southern Hospitality of Larry and Patsy, you feel like you are home with family. The daily activity programs are flexible with great shopping trips, dinner outings, theatre shows... etc. With Larry's and Triple D's humorous stories and sayings. As they say in the South, You'll all come back now! And we intend to do so with the wonderful Grand Stand Beach.

We enjoy the theatres and find all of the staff very friendly.

We are getting ready to leave on our 5th trip to Myrtle Beach. Our hosts, Larry & Patsy, go above & beyond the call of duty to make sure everyone has a terrific vacation. The variety of activities they offer give all tourists something of interest in which to participate. The bus drivers are very courteous and keep us well informed en route. The change of accommodation to the Ocean Reef Resort was a good move. This trip offers excellent value considering the cost of the trip.

Murray & Mary Hall

This is my 10th trip to Myrtle Beach and they get better with each trip. Larry and Patsy are so well organized and are so wonderful to everyone. I just returned from the flea market and it's off to Tanger Outlet Mall before dinner at Carolina Roadhouse. I'm staying for two months so I'll have plenty of time to walk the beach and look for shark teeth. Prayers for all my DeNurian friends.

For the past two winters Henry and I have gone to Myrtle Beach with DeNure Tours. We have been very pleased with the service we received. The voyage by coach is comfortable and the drivers are very obliging. The resort is excellent and for the host and hostess they go out of their way to be of help. We have enjoyed our holidays so much that we are going again this winter and looking forward to it. Well done DeNure keep up the good work.

An absolutely great program!
My wife and I are in Myrtle Beach once again this year. We have found Larry and Patsy to be terrific hosts; they definitely mean to please, and their good at it.
We've been travelling with DeNure since the mid 90's and have found this location to be one of our favourites. Great theatre, great shopping, terrific beach, our kind of weather, and an absolutely super program with an absolutely super couple running it.
Two thumbs up to Myrtle Beach!!!

We've been at least 12 times and it keeps getting better. Larry and Patsy are such a caring family and look after everything so well. They're like family. The outings and shows are tremendous and you get the best seats at a very reasonable price. Don't let the journey put you off because the drivers are great and the movies help to pass the time away. Also many stops along the way in comfy seats with pillow and blankets.

On April 23rd, Sandy and I met the DeNure Bus at the Tim Hortons in Stoney Creek at 1:00P.M. Rick and Todd were the friendly bus drivers who took our luggage. We boarded the bus and saw many familiar faces: Linda and Mary from Peterborough, Ruth from Oakville, Denise, Wendy and Garcia, the Manchester friends. Read More »

I have just returned from a ten day trip to Myrtle Beach, where I stayed at the Ocean Reef. Here’s how it all happened.

We went to Myrtle Beach from March 13 to April 19, 2012, and had a wonderful time as always. It was very pleasant travelling on your motorcoaches. The meal breaks and washroom stops are very well planned. It is a very hassle free way to travel.

We stayed at the Ocean Reef. Read More »

On March 27, 2012, my wife Joan and I set off on our first DeNure Tour, a ten day trip to Myrtle Beach.
In planning the trip, the DeNure staff was very helpful in describing the tour and helping us to sign up for it. We were put in touch with Larry in Myrtle Beach by Email who answered some questions relative to golfing there, specifically that we should wait until we arrived before booking tee-off times. Read More »

Myrtle Beach is a resort power house. It offers something for everyone—, hundreds of hotels, many of them beach front, the best golf courses, world class malls with very good prices on almost everything, exceptional entertainment venues and performances, dining establishments with mouthwatering menus to satisfy every pallet and pocket book and 60 miles of pristine white beaches which are well maintained and safety insured by beach patrols of police and life guards. Read More »
