Bayou to the Big Apple – East Coast Road Trip

Efficient and exhilarating, this nine-day road trip takes travellers to highlights along America's East Coast. Your journey begins in lively New Orleans where jazz rings out onto the streets. Venture east to Florida's sand, sunshine, and perhaps some screams if you visit one of Orlando's amusement parks before continuing up the coast to New York City. You'll do it all with a knowledgeable Chief Experience Officer (CEO) by your sides and travelmates that are as enthusiastic as you are to soak in the splendour of the United States.
