Tour description provided by G Adventures

Kicks abound on Route 66—come get yours. Nicknamed 'Main Street of America', there’s nothing Norman Rockwell-esque on the stretch of highway you’ll travel on this trip. Burgers, longboards and big-city shenanigans are the order of the day every day as you take in the sights and sounds of LA, Vegas, San Diego and the Grand Canyon with an expert CEO leading the way. If you’ve always longed to see the real American Southwest but never had the time or the money, well, you’re fresh out of excuses.
