Cropped family

A Family legacy

Venture Tours, Inc. is a family-owned business, specializing in motorcoach transportation. The owners have been in the motorcoach industry for more than 50 years. A mixture of hard work and family legacy helped to create Venture Tours, Inc., one of the most successful motorcoach companies in Hampton Roads/Coastal Virginia.

Venture Tours started out in 1996 with 1 coach and today have a fleet of more than 30 coaches in sizes ranging from 28 passengers to 81 passengers. In some cases, trailers can be added for additional luggage capacities. In 1997, we began trips to Atlantic City. Guests can purchase individual tickets and take a Saturday trip to the excitement of the Atlantic City casinos. We also provide charter services throughout the United States and Canada.

Today, Venture Tours, Inc. is considered to be one the best motorcoach services in the area. We have made a name for ourselves for giving friendly, courteous, safe, and reliable service.

Eagle 500px

Our Eagle

It started back in the days of Gallop Bus Lines. Jimmy Hall (proud owner of Venture Tours) was sent to go pick up the new Eagle, purchased by Jimmy's Grandfather. Decades later, Jimmy found his grandfather's Eagle, by chance, and arranged to purchase it. Jimmy then had it fully restored and renovated, keeping the same Gallop design, with new Venture lettering. It's not on the road much, but it's a prized possession at Venture and will always be an artifact of the past. A simpler time.
