Los Angeles
This morning we leave Los Angeles behind and head out across the Mojave Desert to the bright lights of legendary Las Vegas
Las Vegas
LA, you’ve been a dream, but we’re swapping out the glamourous dreamscape of La La land for the neon delights of Vegas. A place of dreams and epic debauchery, this huge man-made entertainment precinct in the middle of the desert is all about total excess. You’ll be blinded by the bright lights and gobsmacked at the thought of all the $$$ running through more than 75 massive casinos. A nighttime tour of the famous ‘Strip’, including a stop for pics at the legendary Vegas sign, will show you what’s on offer after dark in this outrageous city. 
DAY 4 - Las Vegas
Las Vegas
Spend the morning lazing by the poolside sipping on recovery cocktails, or maybe opt to soar in a helicopter above the Grand Canyon – one of the world’s most impressive natural wonders. This city has some quirkier offerings too, like the Neon Museum and the Atomic Testing Museum. At night, we’ll treat you to a cruise down the strip, Vegas Style.

Miami
Another day in this eclectic city, and we’ve got the need for speed. Why not go a little Miami Vice on a Thriller speedboat tour of the bay? After experiencing a slice of the city’s Cuban side with a mouthwatering dinner tonight (on us), take a stroll down the super cool South Beach and peruse the art deco buildings and bright neon lights, finishing up with a night of dancing amidst Miami’s uber fun club scene.

It’s our last day in Miami, and by now we’re definitely feeling like locals. If you haven’t yet copped yourself a fedora, taken that classic insta pic by a vintage car or seen all the sights you wanted to see, now’s your chance. Let loose on the city’s vintage stores to stock up on souvenirs, or even take the day to get in that all-important tanning sesh - this is our last day in Miami, after all. Tonight, we’ll sip margaritas and swap stories about our highlights, ready for our morning flight the next day.

I would recommend contiki to any new travellers that haven’t left the county before and it’s a great experience and good way to see new places. It’s very hard doing it solo though as you can get excluded but won’t let it dampen me doing another Contiki!

This trip was great, however I thought there may have been a few more inclusions. This trip has a lot of optionals so adding them up on top of the trip itself is necessary. Would definitely do this again though to be honest, I had an amazing time, and worth it for the convenience.
