    If you are just going to party on this trip only then wait till you are 21. If you are going to see the sights there will be non drinkers of all ages. You just won’t be able to get into bars and some clubs.

    At 21 I imagine all you want to do is drink so i would say no wait till you are 21 as most of the clubs in the states are very strict with ID.

    if you want to do the tour do it
    Only problem is when it comers to the night options and you cant go to bars and clubs as 21 is the drinking age for usa/canada but we had people on our tour who were under 21 and they still had fun
    I did the Grand Northern September 2007
    Any info i can be emailed at
