Frequently asked Questions about guided holidays in USA

What are the best tours to the United States?

With such an array of experiences within this vast land - the guided holiday you choose depends on what experiences you are looking for.

For music lovers, exploring the heritage of Blues and Jazz on our The Deep South tour is a must. Alternatively, if its understanding more of the history of this great nation - America's Historic East is just the ticket. Or perhaps you have the world famous National Parks on your list of must see's - in which case our Epic Wonders of the National Parks tour taking you to no less than 8 of the greatest parks will be the tour for you. Or perhaps you want to ee the sights of New York or the surrounding areas of San Francisco and the Pacific Coast or even Discover New England - with a country as big as the USA - there's sure to be something for everyone.

What should I pack for a guided holiday in the United States?
Americans tend to dress casually, particularly in the warmer months.  We recommend checking the weather forecast a few days before you travel.
 
We recommend comfortable, lightweight clothing.  You may also find a cardigan or pullover useful for air-conditioned buildings and transportation. Comfortable shoes are a must as there can be a lot of walking involved on some excursions.
 
What's the food like in the US?
North America offers an extremely wide choice of coffee shops, restaurants, food bars, etc, many of which stay open 24 hours a day. All offer value for money and the portions are considerably larger than at home.
 
In large cities, restaurants are mostly modern and very clean, offering a vast range of cuisines, prices and facilities. Restaurants come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from fast-food, self-service and counter service, to drive-in and table service.
 
As the country has become more culturally diverse, so has the average palate. Today every imaginable dish can be found coast to coast, with an increasing emphasis on fresh and healthy. The following list is simply a sampler of foods that are favourites in most regions.
  • Hamburgers.
  • Fried chicken.
  • Barbecue.
  • Cheesecake.
  • Key lime pie.
American beer is light, cheap and always served chilled.  ‘Budweiser’ is perhaps the most famous brand.  It is also worth trying some of the cocktails available in the bars and saloons. American wine, usually from California, has certainly ‘come of age’ in recent years and now presents a very respectable alternative to the more expensive European imports.
 
There are also many types of bars, cocktail lounges, café-style bars and English-style pubs. Generally speaking, waiter/waitress service costs more.
How long is the flight to the United States?

Flights from London take about 8 hours to the East Coast of America and just over 11 hours to reach Los Angeles on the West Coast

What time zone is the United States in?
As North America is such a vast country (3,000 miles from coast to coast), the country spans 6 time zones.  It shares the main four time zones with Canada. Eastern Time , Central Time, Mountain Time and Pacific Time (Hawaii Time and Alaska Time are separate Time zones).
