Day 1: Los Angeles. Diverse, sun-soaked, beautiful – LA is an incredible place to kick off your trip! Take a city tour, including laid-back Santa Monica, quirky Venice Beach and Melrose Avenue. Take a turn on the Skyslide, hundreds of feet above the city, before an American-Asian fusion dinner and a night on the town.
Day 2: Los Angeles. Love a theme park? Sign up for an optional trip to Universal Studios or Disneyland. Or dig deeper in LA. Check out the beaches of Malibu, hike to the Hollywood sign from Griffith Park, take a tour of the Arts District or join our downtown LA food tour – yum!
Day 3: Los Angeles to Las Vegas. Big, bold, crazy – we’re heading to the bright lights of Vegas! Take a night-time tour of the mega-watt Strip, snap pics for your Insta at the Vegas sign, and see the iconic light and laser show on Fremont Street. Get ready for the night of your life – Vegas parties hard!
Day 4: Las Vegas. Spend the morning by the pool, recovering from the night before, then get out there! Ride a gondola in the Venetian, take a spin on the High Roller, hit the slot machines, or take the SkyJump, 829 feet above the Strip. Then prepare yourself for another wild night of Vegas fun!
Day 5: Las Vegas. It’s your last day, so make it count! Stake out the blackjack tables, marvel at the Bellagio Hotel’s fountains or splash out on a helicopter ride over the one-and-only Grand Canyon. When the sun goes down, you’ve got one more shot at those nightclubs!
Day 6: Las Vegas to Miami. Board the flight from Vegas to Miami. With beautiful beaches, Latin flavour and incredible nightlife, Miami is non-stop amazing. Visit the murals at Wynwood Walls, take a cruise round the bay or just soak up the sun on South Beach. The party starts after sundown!
Day 7: Miami. Get your Miami Vice on today with a Thriller speedboat tour of the bay. Then take a walking tour of Little Havana. Think chess games in the park, cigar-lounges and Cuban coffee bars. Tonight enjoy a Cuban feast, before a stroll down South Beach to see the Art Deco hotels.
Day 8: Miami. It’s another beautiful day in Miami. Give paddle-boarding a try on South Beach, check out the quirky lifeguard stands or explore the Everglades by boat. Head to Ocean Drive after sundown for another lively night out.
Day 9: Miami. It’s our last full day in Miami. Make sure you’ve seen all the sights you wanted to, take a selfie with a vintage car and pick up a fedora. We’ve also got an optional bike tour of South Beach on offer. Watch the sun go down and enjoy one more night on the margaritas.
Day 10: Miami to New York. Grab a Cuban coffee to go, before hopping on the short flight to NYC. We’ll take you on a sightseeing tour of some of the city’s highlights and set you up with a Metro pass. When the sun dips, and the skyscrapers light up, get ready for one of the nights of your life!
Day 11: New York. Get ready to tick that bucket-list – we’re off to the Statue of Liberty! Then the rest of the day is yours. Explore Central Park, walk the High Line, visit the Museum of Modern Art, and pick up an all-American hot-dog – delicious!
Day 12: New York. It’s your last full day and where better to spend it than New York City? Explore the cute side-walk cafes of Greenwich Village and the hip boutiques of Soho or take a guided bike tour of Central Park. Enjoy one last magical night with your new friends in the City That Never Sleeps.
Day 13: Trip end. It’s time to pack your bags, say your goodbyes and either head home or continue your travels around the States. See you again next time!

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:
Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.
Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.
Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.
Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.
Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.
Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.
24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.
It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
