America may be going through a tough period politically at the moment, but there are still plenty of great things about the USA. The country was visited by nearly 80 million international travellers in 2015 and remains one of the most popular destinations in the world for adventure enthusiasts to go in search of something new.
There are many great reasons to visit the States, but here are just four distinctly different experiences you can look forward to when you travel with us.
The Wild, Wild West
Many people will have grown up watching spaghetti westerns and wondering what it would be like to be a cowboy, if only for a little while. Well, that dream can come true thanks to a unique opportunity with the Colorado Cattle Company. This is your chance to head off to the Wild, Wild West and spend some time on a working cattle ranch, whilst staying in complete luxury. Try your hand at duties such as horsemanship, cattle driving and roping to see if you have what it takes.
The west coast of America is typically more laid back than the other major cities in the country, especially in places such as San Francisco and Portland. Sure, there’s the manic traffic of LA but even here the locals love the beach life and taking it easy in the sunshine. Our west coast of America tours will take you throughout California, Oregon and Washington to see major sights such as the vineyards of Napa Valley, the Golden Gate Bridge and Yosemite National Park. There’s no better way to see all the highlights in one trip.
The City That Never Sleeps
On the opposite side of the USA is one of the most visited cities in the world, an iconic place that sits on the bucket list of many travellers – the City that Never Sleeps. New York is a melting pot of cultures that results in the most diverse attractions, sights and culinary delights that you will see anywhere in the world. A popular cruise port and beloved city break destination, it is great for a 3-day trip or as a base for a longer holiday that involves exploring New England to the north or cities like Washington DC and Philadelphia to the south. Plus, with so much to see and do, there’s always a reason to return.
Untamed is the perfect way to describe Alaska, as it’s home to breathtaking landscapes and unforgettable wildlife encounters. Whether you are cruising the Inside Passage, hiking the Hubbard Glacier or simply exploring somewhere like Juneau, you are always aware of just how close you are to nature. Depending on the time of year you travel, there may be the chance to see whales in the Gulf of Alaska, spot grizzly bears in the Denali National Park or look out for eagles flying high overhead.
Although some of the most popular, these are not the only USA tours we have available. If you would like to discover any of the experiences above or, for example, walk the Appalachian Trail, contact our friendly team for more information.
