North America tour reviews

One of the best trips I’ve ever done. Met some amazing people and saw some incredible places, all in under two weeks.

- Jake Maddocks, LA to the Bay

Highly recommend the Best of USA tour. It's perfect for a solo traveller who hasn’t been to the States before and doesn’t have a huge amount of time. It covers four amazing cities with heaps of activities and free time.

- Jessica, Best of USA

My trip was amazing. Had the best tour leader through Canada. Charlotte was great - highly recommend, and the trip was really well planned.

- Ryan Jones, Grand Canadian
