The East Coast Touring Company Staff
Once you meet our dedicated staff of professionals, we know you will come to see them as family, just like we do.
Bob Buesing, Owner
In 1981 the Buesing family founded East Coast Touring Company, a small local tour operator that functioned to fill the soft season of the family’s oceanfront motel in Wildwood, N.J. Three years later Bob purchased the business from his family, relocating to Easton, Pa., with the vision of expanding the company. Since then, Bob’s passion for travel, immense knowledge of destinations, dedication to customer service, and his sincere and honest relationships with clients have attributed to the growth of ECTC.
