United States of America
America is a land of primary colours. Whether it’s the reds of an Arizona canyon or a New Hampshire fall, the whites of a Rocky Mountain peak or a Florida beach, the blues of the Pacific Ocean or a sierra sky, a hop across the pond allows you to experience this amazing country in glorious technicolour.

Alongside a stunning set of visuals, America’s soundtrack ranges from a busy New York street to a quiet Louisiana bayou, from the rawness of LA hip hop to a lively Smoky Mountain banjo, while its tastes include the blackberry notes of a Napa Valley Zinfandel and the spice of a Cajun gumbo. You can step out of your car and catch the scent of desert sage in New Mexico or the iodine tang of California surf, and stroke the bark of a venerable redwood or run your hands through prairie sweetgrass. A fabulous feast for the senses, America is waiting for you.
Unlike many other travel companies that offer the USA as a destination, we tend to steer clear of anonymous chain hotels, preferring where there’s an option to work with small owner-run inns and properties of character. We believe these places add warmth, authenticity and local knowledge which will considerably enrich your holiday experience. For us, a holiday to the USA is all about the people you meet, and while we’re always happy to book a tour guide to give you the classic half-day city tour, we think your memories will be much fonder if you’ve spent your time swapping campfire tales with a Wyoming rancher or sharing your passion with an artisan Vermont cheese-maker.
Above all, though, we believe that travelling through the USA is simply great fun, and we are always thinking up new ways to inject pleasure and enjoyment into your holiday. So, whether you want to saddle up for a trail ride on a family adventure or take an open-top Mustang down Big Sur on your honeymoon, speed across the Everglades in an airboat or take it slow with a mint julep on the porch, greet a western sunrise from your tipi with a mug of hot coffee or sigh at a Maine sunset from the deck of a lobster pound, get in touch. We’re ready to turn your American dream into reality.
