We believe it is always good to know who you are doing business with, how long a company has been around and what their philosophy is. Tri-State Travel is a family owned business that began in 1940. The Hillard Family started with and has maintained a tradition of excellence in everything they do.
What started with one single school bus grew into what was known as Rocket Lines, then River Trails Transit Lines, then Tri-State Tours and today Tri-State Travel.
Our current fleet of modern Motorcoaches is among the Best in the Midwest and our Tour Division provides fully escorted travel packages for both individuals and groups from throughout Illinois, Iowa & Wisconsin. Add in our Galena trolley tours and Group Trolley Services and you have a complete Travel Company.
The Hillard Family takes pride in providing a high quality product, excellent customer service through a professional, courteous staff. In addition, they maintain memberships in well-known, respected industry associations such as the American Bus Association (ABA) and the Travel Alliance Partners (TAP). The membership standards of these organizations guarantee that Tri-State Travel will deliver the level of service you expect.
