Stars & Stripes 2018/19 (13 Days, Los Angeles to New York City)

O say, can you see? You'll see it all and more on this epic trip through the USA. After experiencing the best of the west, you'll jet east for three unforgettable nights in the city that never sleeps (although we don't recommend you go sans shut-eye). Think: rollerblading along Venice Beach in LA, slurping on chowder at San Fran's Fisherman's Wharf, throwing it all on black in Vegas and Statue of Liberty spotting in New York. It's basically a tour of the US Hall of Fame. Seriously.

Day 2: Los Angeles
Say #YOLO and add an optional excursion to your LA bucket list - Universal Studios and Disneyland are here. Stars in your eyes?

Day 4: Las Vegas
If you do manage to wake up this morning without a kidnapped tiger in your room, and with all your teeth, you obviously didn't do it right. But that's probs just as well, as where else in the world can you take a gondola ride down a Venice canal, see the Pyramids of Giza and the Eiffel Tower, all before lunchtime? Yep, it's as cheesy as a stuffed-crust pizza, but it's also really cool. Later on suit up, stroll in and put it all on 'black' like the high roller you are! Just remember, what happens in Vegas… Optional activities: -Heli-tour over the Las Vegas Strip -Entry to the High Roller Observation Wheel -Shooting range experience
Day 5: Las Vegas (Day trip to Grand Canyon)
Stay by the pool or #livelarge? Your choice, but a day trip to the Grand Canyon is included. The OMFG view, on the canyon rim or from the chopper (optional), is well worth the journey along the famous Route 66. Included today: -Day trip to Grand Canyon National Park Optional activities: -Heli-tour over the Grand Canyon
Day 6: Las Vegas to Yosemite National Park region, California
Cash in your chips (or cut your losses) and give Mike Tyson's tiger back - we're swapping bright lights and high rises for mountain ranges and waterfalls. Swap stories of your Vegas antics as we drive from the desert to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and our gateway to Yosemite National Park.
Day 7: Yosemite to San Francisco
Yosemite is like watching a nature documentary. In high definition. With 3D glasses. And epic surround sound. Hike/bike around Yosemite Falls and Mirror Lake, or do your best Attenborough impersonation, watching for black bears, bobcats and deer. Be sure to grab a flower for your hair, you know where we're heading next. Included today: -Entry to Yosemite National Park Meals: -Breakfast
Day 8: San Francisco
Famous for cable cars, THAT bridge and inventing the fortune cookie, this morning is all about San Fran's best assets - from Golden Gate Park to Fisherman's Wharf.

Act two: Have a stairmaster workout up Lombard Street. Act three: Finish with a locally guided tour of Chinatown and a tasty dinner.
