Falling for New England
Changing leaves, wildlife, apple cider – the fall season is in full swing across the pond.
And nowhere does autumn better than these north-eastern states. Traditional clapboard houses are decorated with autumnal wreaths, with displays of pumpkins and squash on front porches. Farmers take advantage of bumper fruit harvests, churning out deliciously sweet ciders, apple doughnuts and cranberry chutneys. Forests of beech and maple turn glorious shades of red, gold and orange – and if you look closely, you might spot a few wild local residents (squirrels, birdlife and perhaps even a moose or two).
It’s a beautiful region to explore at this time of year – our ‘Best of New England in the Fall’ tour spotlights some of the prettiest parts. We’ll start and end in Boston, journeying in a loop that takes in Cape Cod, Mystic, Woodstock, the White Mountains and much more. Along the way, we’ll enjoy maple syrup tastings, visits to charming historic towns and, of course, plenty of stops to admire the fall foliage.
13 days from £2,849pp
Travelling through five states, soak up postcard-worthy views at every turn, from historic lighthouses and steeple-topped churches, to wooden covered bridges and rows of classic clapboard houses.

On our new tour here, we’ve wrapped up all the best bits of the Deep South into one fantastic itinerary, and included a couple of nights in Chicago – home to some of the best blues bars in the business – for good measure. You’ll tap your toes at the Grand Ole Opry, meet local songwriters, enjoy a private zydeco performance and much more.
Music aside, we’ll also enjoy a pizza dinner in Chicago (home of the deep-dish), a Creole and Cajun lunch in the Big Easy and cocktail hour – a quintessentially Southern tradition – at a historic antebellum cottage in Natchez.

Departs 2 May and 5 September 2020
From Chicago to New Orleans, this fascinating tour takes you on a journey through America’s music heartland.
An American adventure
Back in 1989, our very first USA escorted tour was born – a 16-day trip we named ‘California and the Golden West’.
Selling out 10 departures within the first two weeks of being on sale, it was immediately one of our bestsellers. Thirty years later, it’s still just as popular for its mix of iconic cities, natural wonders and coastal scenery (we’re one of the only companies that’ll take you along the famous stretch of Highway 1 at Big Sur).
The Awe-Inspiring National Parks
Vast canyons, bizarre rock formations, rugged arches and sky-scraping spires – our 18-day adventure is a photographer’s dream.
Travelling from Colorado through the wide open landscapes of Arizona, Utah, Wyoming and South Dakota, we’ll cover eight spectacular national parks, including Yellowstone, Arches and Grand Canyon.
We’re in the spiritual homelands of the Navajo and Cheyenne, so we’ll also gain an insight into Native American culture and tradition as our journey unfolds.
Spotlight on: Gaylord Opryland Resort, Nashville
As the name hints, ‘Southern Sights and Sounds’ puts the focus on the musical heritage of America’s Deep South.
One of the highlights is country music capital Nashville, where we’ll spend two nights at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. The hotel itself is pretty special (there’s even a tropical indoor garden complete with 40-foot waterfalls and a full-blown river), but it’s the location that we really love.
Just next door is the Grand Ole Opry – one of the most legendary live music venues in the world. Since 1925, artists have taken to its stage for toe-tapping performances of country, bluegrass and folk tunes. And on our second night in Nashville, we’ll be lucky enough to join them for an unforgettable evening.
It’s one of many standout experiences on this bestselling tour.
