Tailor Made USA Holidays

The best of the USA

America possess a daunting variety of fabulous towns and cities to visit, man-made and natural wonders to marvel at and pleasurable activities to partake in. Whether your dream is to take the rail trip of a lifetime traversing America coast to coast by train, sample the atmosphere of New Orleans' French Quarter or feel the rush of Niagara Falls, we can arrange an itinerary that will fill up your photo album with treasured memories.

Benefits of rail

North America's railways have come a long way since the days of the 'iron horses' that traversed the old Wild West. Modern, comfortable and fast railways create a network that reaches almost anywhere on the continent that a traveller might wish to visit. And a country so large deserves to be experienced, as cultures from state to state are intriguingly different, something that Amtrak's Superliner, long-distance trains were made for.

Explore the USA in Complete Freedom

If the exhilaration and exuberance of the USA's great cities are more to your taste, journeying cross-country on an Amtrak train is a fantastic way to discover America. One day you could be taking a cab to the Empire State Building in the Big Apple; the next strolling past the White House in Washington DC or crossing San Francisco's iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

You might head south to vibrant and multicultural New Orleans to appreciate the finest soul, blues and R&B music to be found on the planet, or to the theme parks and white-sand beaches of Florida to enjoy a spot of fun-in-the-sun USA-style.

We arrange holidays to suit all tastes and budgets, so you can pick and choose from below or come up with something completely unique.
