USA holiday with Trek America


Honestly the best thing I have ever done!

Reviewed August 2019

I honestly don’t know where to start with this review. I spent 14 days on the road traveling in and around the west coast. And I loved every second. Whether that be my helicopter ride, the tough hiking or the party bus in Vegas. This experience wouldn’t have been anywhere near as amazing if it wasn’t for our incredible tour leader James Dixon. He was sensational, from the first meeting to the final goodbye. He was organised, supportive and approachable.


Fantastic! Definitely recommend this tour company!!

Reviewed August 2019

I had a fantastic trip and am telling all my friends about my wonderful experience & this tour company! I was lucky I had an amazing guide (Abby Choruby) she was a great driver and really put us in holiday mode with her always positive & easy going personality. There was a fair bit of driving but it enabled us to see so many amazing places, and even chilling looking out the window at the varied landscapes was special. My group was also genuinely perfect, just 10 of us and we all got along so well. Thanks so much TrekAmerica!!


A wonderful whirlwind tour of California with amazing trek buddies

Reviewed November 2018

I joined this tour in San Francisco at the end of October 2018. On the first day of the tour we visited the Golden Gate Bridge and walked across to admire the views. We then headed to the stunning Yosemite National Park and hiked up waterfalls checking out the scenery and breathing the fresh air. The next stop was Vegas where we partied on a limo touring the strip, explored all Vegas hotels and casinos, had fun at Freemont Street and danced in clubs in Vegas. Both before and after Vegas we stopped at Route 66 to check out the diners, souvenir shops and to take amazing pics.

We offer a whole range of travel extras with everything from additional hotel nights, travel insurance, city sightseeing and more so you can organise everything you'll need for your trip in one easy place.

Our tours depart at designated hotels in our gateway cities, so it's a great idea to book a room for the night before and after your tour. It's also worth staying extra nights to explore the city more. You must book these hotels in advance either online with your tour or by contacting our friendly sales team.
