About the tour
Experience the USA in style on this enhanced version of our successful USA Coast to Coast tour, staying in many unique hotels entangled with key moments in American history. Take in the Rockies by rail, enjoy a dinner cruise around the San Francisco Bay and view the Grand Canyon on a heritage rail journey.
We leave London and fly to New York, where we spend two nights at the Intercontinental New York Times Square, a luxurious base from which to explore the famous avenues of Manhattan. Spread over an impressive 36 stories, the hotel features guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, perfect for soaking up the New York skyline, with views over the Hudson River and the Broadway Theatre District afforded by the hotel's enviable position in Hell's Kitchen, just minutes away from the iconic Times Square, for which the hotel is named. After time to settle in, this evening we head out to an Italian restaurant on Times Square, for an authentic Italian-American dinner - a great introduction to one of the famous sub-cultures of this multi-ethnic city.
On Day 2 we enjoy an authentic American diner breakfast to start our day, before setting out for a guided tour of the 'Big Apple', including Central Park, an open, leafy space set amongst the city's skyscrapers. Later we enjoy a cruise around Manhattan Harbour. We have lunch on board as we spot landmarks including Ellis Island and the torch-wielding icon, the Statue of Liberty.

Mr R Jaramillo
Because it was our 40th wedding anniversary we wanted something special which we got. Our leader Maureen did all she could to make it special which she did. The flight over the Grand Cannon made it worth while and when we reached San Francisco she arranged for us to have a room on the 15 floor in the tower and waiting for us was a massage from the hotel wishing us a happy 40th anniversary in chocolate which was very nice. We had a great group and a great leader.
