United States Tours
Big and flashy, subtle and sophisticated, or trashy and disarmingly familiar, America has it all ... and that's just the geography. Few places on earth can claim the variety, scope and scale of the United States, and its melting pot of influences from around the world has made for a culture rife with - and proud of - its contradictions. As soon as you try to pigeonhole it, you are blindsided with the sublime, the ridiculous, or both simultaneously. The export of American pop culture has made its icons and landmarks familiar the world over, but behind the sights lays the real America, and there's no other place like it.
Bats in Texas, aliens in Roswell, pretty much everything else in San Francisco—get off the well-worn tourist trail and really discover the south and west of the United States. After leaving fabulous New Orleans, you'll explore some of the most incredible natural wonders anywhere—the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Yosemite—then trade wildlife for the nightlife in Las Vegas. It's the ultimate roadtrip. Now, let's get rolling.
Highlights: Strolling the hills of San Francisco, hiking Yosemite, taking a chance in Las Vegas, savouring the sunset at the Grand Canyon, learning about the Navajo, witnessing bats in flight at Carlsbad Caverns, looking for aliens in Roswell, dancing in New Orleans.
Culture vultures, get ready to take flight on an incredible tour of American capitals—business, political and musical. From Manhattan, follow the trail of independence through Philadelphia to Washington, DC. Just try to prevent your boots from shufflin' in the music meccas of Memphis, Nashville and New Orleans.
Highlights: Feeling the beat in Memphis, Nashville and New Orleans, driving through the Appalachian Mountains, exploring monuments in Washington, DC, seeing the sites in New York City
Highlights of the Deep South (NUSH)
There aren’t many places in the US—or the world, frankly—that can match the Deep South for charm, character and quirkiness. This 9-day trip pulls back the curtain on this unique part of the country by way of groovy Charleston, cosmopolitan Atlanta, sultry Savannah, the Elvis mecca of Memphis and other hotspots while serving up heaping helpings of colonial estates, Cajun cuisine, country music, whiskey and fun. It’s different down here. Way different. Come on down and git yer drawl on, y’all.
Highlights: View the historic houses in Charleston, explore the dark and mysterious side of Savannah, get into the country groove in Nashville, learn about the Blues in Memphis, eat Cajun and party on Bourbon Street
