West Coast is the name, chillaxing is the game. All the glory of a slow-paced sun-soaked life paired with the electric energy of the cities, a USA West Coast tour will tease you, please you, and entice you to the max. Who can resist golden-sandy beaches, palm trees and vast deserts in hues of red and orange? While the scenic views of LA and San Diego will turn any nature-hater into a hiking enthusiast, the Californian vineyards will transform you from wine-lover to expert, whilst the Native American culture that routes the landscape in history will have you utterly transfixed. Not only will a West Coast tour of America set your soul alight, it will likely reignite your zest for life too, awakening your taste buds in the process.
Whether it’s navigating the shops that lie in the desert oasis of Phoenix, embodying the glitzy ‘Viva Las Vegas’ lifestyle in the casinos of Sin City, or getting creative with the freethinkers of San Francisco, the city where boho meets tech, every sight, sound and experience will offer you a new perspective of the American dream. And don’t even get us started on the food: locally sourced ingredients infused with Latin and Asian influences permeate the culinary scene, served of course with a side of Cali’s finest wine. Basically, all the best ingredients to get you salivating.
What’s the West Coast’s best feature? It’s simple: the pure, untampered natural beauty of the region. For West-Coasters, an affiliation with the great outdoors isn’t just a hobby, it’s a way of life, and really can you blame them? With the serenity of Bass Lake, the magic of the starry sky above Yosemite National Park and the iconic Joshua Trees of the Mojave Desert all waiting to be explored, it ain’t a West Coast adventure without a nature blockbuster happening every single day of your trip. And who can overlook the Grand Canyon, an unfathomable natural wonder that will have you pondering your place in the world as you marvel at its size and beauty. Travelling the USA’s West Coast will reinvigorate you, inspire you, and no doubt move you to the core. Don’t believe us? Come see for yourself.
Sure, you can marvel at the Grand Canyon from the safety of the ground, but if you’re feeling a little more adventurous why not opt for a helicopter ride to capture this dramatic scenery by air? A birds-eye view will grant you with stunning panoramas of the hidden gorges, rivers and bends you simply can’t see from the viewpoints, and you’ll experience the once in a lifetime feeling of gliding over the middle of the Canyon itself, with nothing but vast red-rock valley below you. Nothing will bring you closer to the Grand Canyon than this VIP style sightseeing tour, 100% worth every penny.
Welcome to LA, where glamour meets grit. There’s no better way to get to know this city than a full day packed with Hollywood glamour, Beverly Hills celeb-spotting and some serious beach action on the Californian Coast.

Whether you’re after culture, surfing, architecture or Disney, one thing we can all agree on is a quick (or, y’know, leisurely) stop at a Mexican street food stall…
What do you get if you combine burritos with music? An absolute whale of a time, that’s what. The set up is simple: 26 of the hottest bands, a myriad of local food vendors, and blissful vibes all round. Food tastings, other-worldly burrito creations and of-course cocktails will have the good times rolling throughout the evening.
