Tour Itinerary

As this tour departs at 0730 we recommend that you book pre-tour accommodation. Please request hotel details at the time of booking.

  • Day 1: Miami & Key West

    T'was the day before Christmas, so what better way to spend it then travelling along some of the most picturesque and stunning stretches of road the East has to offer. Take in the lush mangroves, turquoise waters and panoramic views as you make your way down to beautiful Key West.
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 2: Key West & Christmas Day

    It's not every year that you wake up on Christmas Day, with temperatures reaching 26.5 degrees and pristine beaches at your doorstep, so be sure to make the most of it. It wouldn't be Christmas without an almighty feast, so why not hang out with the locals and sample some of the fresh seafood and when you can't eat anymore, simply hang on a hammock and suspend yourself between two palm trees and watch the world go by.
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 3: The Everglades

    Spanning the southern tip of Florida, the famous Everglades National Park is rich with birdlife and many rare and endangered species. Experience close encounters with alligators as you delve deep into the Everglades themselves on an included airboat ride, your experienced tour guide will describe the wonders of this unique ecosystem plus all of the native and exotic wildlife that make this place their home.
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 4-5: Orlando

    Now is your chance to embrace your inner child, with adventure parks galore. With two nights here you will have the chance to get your thrills in. Head over to Disney Land and meet Micky or if that's not your thing then battle Voldemort at Universal Studios' at Harry Potter World. But, if you really want something out of this world, why not cross into the final frontier at Kennedy Space Center. There is definitely no growing up allowed around here!
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 6: Panama City Beach

    If you dream of lazy beach days, then our visit to the Gulf of Mexico's `Southern Riviera' - Panama City, will be right up your street. Don't let the laid back vibes fool you though, as the sun goes down, the dancing shoes come out and the party people dance the night away at the famous beachfront clubs of the Gulf Coast.
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 7-8: New Orleans & New Years Eve

    What better way to see in the new year than in jazz-tastic New Orleans! Before the party gets started, why not grab a bowl of Gumbo or some home cooked Jambalaya, for the real Deep South experience? For the biggest celebration in the city head to Jackson Square and watch as the fireworks light up the Mississippi River, follow the crowds as the party continues down to the world famous Bourbon Street. Expect lots of music, lots of colour and lots of fun!
    Accommodation: Budget Lodging included

  • Day 9: Tour ends

    Your tour ends in New Orleans in the morning after breakfast. You may wish to extend your stay and book additional accommodation with Trek America.
