Barbara and Dr. Charles Ashe of Cleveland, an attractive couple with two young children, join the summer 1984 European Capitals tour as their long-delayed honeymoon. Sonya and Michael Clarke, of New York, hoping to revive their floundering marriage, join the tour as well. The tour for all of them veers off course in Paris when Dr. Charles and Sonya ditch Barbara and Michael just as they are to leave for Rome.
In "Tourists off the Tour" follow a whirl wind romance of two married couples who join a European tour. This romantic comedy is one that will take you for a ride right in the heart of Europe through the ups and downs of romance. Sonya, once married to the world-famous rock star, Rod Harrison, was now in her fourth marriage with renowned tax attorney Michael. The third morning in Paris, Sonya tells Michael that she is having an affair with Dr. Charles and that they intend to marry after the tour. Michael refuses to continue the tour and tells Dr. Charles wife, the sexy attorney Barbara, about the affair. Sonya and Dr. Charles leave Paris together, stranding Michael and Barbara at the hotel. From London to Paris to Rome to Miami Beach to New York to Montreal and more, separating, reuniting, coupling, uncoupling, through ecstatic sex and panic attacks, Tourists off the Tour swirls towards a comic, fulfilling conclusion.
