Buckle up for an in-depth adventure along the USA’s East Coast
With cosmopolitan cities and charming villages, golden beaches and historical monuments and a melting pot of communities and cultures, the USA’s East Coast is as diverse as it is delightful. Spend 12 days with a local leader travelling from the history-filled streets of Washington DC to one of Pennsylvania’s Amish communities before discovering the untold stories of Philadelphia’s history. Take a bite out of the Big Apple as you explore the city with local New Yorkers, cruise the scenic waterways of Rhode Island’s Newport, let the charm of Cape Cod’s beaches and quaint towns wash over you, and uncover the old and new sides of Boston.
Experience Washington DC after dark on a night tour of the capital’s most important monuments, museums and memorials.
Take a step back in time at the Gettysburg National Military Park and find out what made the battle here a turning point in the American Civil War.
See another side of life when you visit an Amish farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Learn about their customs and traditions while enjoying lunch.
Get a taste of the real New York as you join a local guide to discover the best sights and bites this multicultural city has to offer.
Get on the road to Rhode Island and explore the charming city of Newport with its Gilded Age mansions during a scenic bay cruise and walk along the famous Cliff Walk.
Coastlines don’t get much prettier than Cape Cod – spend two days discovering the beaches, lighthouses and quaint towns of this much-loved summer spot, including a sand dune tour and sunset picnic.
