Waco Tours (THE tour company in Waco) will be providing an exciting tour experience including Magnolia Silos, the "Fixer-Upper" houses and all things Waco prior to our Awards Banquet. Each of our finalists will find a card tucked in with the invitation to the Awards good for two free seats on Waco Tours' beautiful Mercedes Vans for two hours of fun, history and sight seeing with a Waco Tour Guide on each bus. The tours will depart at 2:00 p.m. and return in time to get you to your hotel to freshen up or just get you back to the Foster Campus for Business and Innovation in time for the reception and awards banquet. If your group needs additional tickets, they are available at a cost of $60 (a $20 discount from individual tour prices). However, we could only reserve 4 vans so seats are limited. The 30th Anniversary Tour is sponsored by Baylor University and the Institute for Family Business. We ask that you contact Linda at 254-710-4157 or email Linda_Ramirez@Baylor.edu to reserve your free seats and make arrangements for any additional seats you may need as soon as possible.Travel Arrangements
