Meet Steve Uelner


Steve UelnerWelcome to the brand new world of Country Travel DISCOVERIES!

I’m Steve Uelner, and hopefully you remember me from your travels with World Wide Country Tours (WWCT), where I served as Director for the past 25 years. Reader’s Digest, the parent company of WWCT, made the decision to exit the travel business. I’m now stepping in to fill that gap, offering those same kind of unique tours that you couldn’t find on your own.

My staff and I have appreciated your long-time loyalty, and I’m excited to introduce you to my new company, Country Travel DISCOVERIES. I personally promise that you will enjoy the same quality and service that you experienced and learned to expect from Country Tours.

Country Travel DISCOVERIES offers many exciting travel experiences that include features like:

  • Off-the-beaten path countryside destinations – such as Warren Suchovsky’s logging camp in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and the Hicks Family’s Mayan Dude Ranch in Bandera, Texas.
  • Exclusive and tasty meals – such as lunch with the troops at Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana, or inside Andy & Maudie Raber’s Amish home in Holmes County, Ohio.
  • Top quality hotels – first class motorcoaches and professional Tour Directors.


Country Travel DISCOVERIES offers dozens of distinctive destinations, starting with a brand new “Coastal Carolina & Georgia Shores” tour departing on April 29. This summer, the “Great Lakes & Mackinac” tour will include a vintage steamer ferry across scenic Lake Michigan.

The “Covered Bridges & Indiana Treasures Tour” will take you back in time to visit Amish families, covered bridges, Santa Claus, Indiana and more. You can also visit Niagara Falls and cruise on the picturesque Erie Canal with the “Niagara Falls & Western New York” tour, or explore the New England countryside during the heart of fall foliage, or ride our country’s epoch railways with our three different “Classic Rail” tours.

And, if you hurry, you’ll still be able to secure a space on “Alaska & the Yukon” this summer, where you’ll cruise the Inside Passage, spend two breathtaking nights in Denali National Park, sail amongst towering glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park, and ride the McKinley Explorer® domed train. These are the kind of tours from which memories are made. And this is only the beginning!

Country Travel DISCOVERIES is based on quality service and unique travel experiences, the kind not offered anywhere else.

I am excited to welcome you to Country Travel DISCOVERIES. Take a look at our Website, discover new travel opportunities, and call us toll-free at 1-855-744-8747 or use the contact form if you have any further questions. I look forward to welcoming you to our exciting travel experiences!

Warm regards,

Steve Uelner
President, Country Travel DISCOVERIES
