Your Guided Group Holiday To East Coast USA 

Travel with us down the East Coast of America by train on this 10-night holiday, allowing us plenty of time to enjoy each city with guided tours and free time to explore at your leisure. We’ll begin our journey in Boston, one of the oldest cities in the US. The city is overflowing with intriguing history and was the scene of many key events during the American Revolution. Our next stop is the Big Apple. A global hub for international commerce, media and entertainment, it is understandable why New York is known as the ‘city that never sleeps’ – it simply doesn’t have the time to! Next, history enthusiasts will be in their element as we take a tour of Philadelphia’s key highlights like the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The final stop on this whirlwind tour is the capital of the USA, Washington DC. A dream for culture lovers, DC is packed with museums, galleries, and monuments.

Please note that visas are required for travel on this tour. Please visit our visa information page for more information.
