Fly to Washington, and transfer to your hotel in colonial Williamsburg. Rest and relax after your journey, and enjoy the first of two evenings in this city with its connections to the War of Independence.

Step back in time on today's wonderful optional excursion. Our first stop is historic Jamestowne, the first permanent English settlement in America. Explore the Glasshouse, and see artefacts from the original Jamestown Fort, before we continue to colonial Williamsburg to discover what life was like in the pioneering days of the 18th Century. Stroll through the formal gardens, hear 'residents' in period costume discussing the day's events and perhaps visit a tavern to sample some traditional 18th-century fare.

Day Three: Discover Charlottesville and the Blue Ridge Mountains

Today you'll visit exquisite Charlottesville - home of Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and the third US President - where early America is lovingly preserved in ancient magnolia-lined streets.

Day Six: Visit Newport, Rhode Island

Today you'll head north through upstate New York towards Boston. En route, you'll stop in Newport, Rhode Island, home to the famous 'summer cottages' of America's rich and famous, which dot the rocky shoreline. Take in the atmosphere before we continue, through the colourful Fall scenery, to our hotel in Hull, south of Boston.

Day Seven: Optional Cape Cod excursion

Spend today relaxing, or join our full-day optional tour to Cape Cod and to Hyannisport, home of the Kennedy clan.

Further Information

Passports and visas

When travelling to the USA, British citizens require passports with an integrated chip (shown on the front by a small rectangular symbol beneath the word PASSPORT), valid beyond the return date from the USA. Visas are not normally required for entry, but visitors must apply for an ESTA online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure at . The current charge is $14 for British Citizens. British subjects and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested should consult the US Embassy as a visa may be required. Note too that if you have visited Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Syria, Libya, Somalia or Yemen since March 2011, or have dual nationality with any of these countries, you do require a US visa and cannot travel on the Visa Waiver Program.

Foreign Office travel advice

Visit to find out the latest Foreign And Commonwealth Office travel advice for your holiday destination, as well as information about passports and visas.

Departure dates and fall colours

This tour covers a large distance from Massachusetts to southern Virginia, and so Fall foliage will naturally vary. On early departures, leaves are more likely to have turned in the northern areas covered, whereas on later dates it is the more southern areas that will be most notable, with leaf-fall having already occurred further north.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Helicopter flights

Sightseeing flights by helicopter are weight controlled and balanced. Please contact us if you wish to book a helicopter flight and your bodyweight exceeds 250lb. (In such cases, a seat may have to be left empty, and some companies may charge a premium.)


Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. The customary gratuity for a coach driver or Tour Manager is about $5 per person per day. It is normal to tip 15-20 per cent of the bill for a taxi or in a restaurant, and to leave a dollar or so per drink in a bar.


Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday, though regular stops will be made for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout, including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

Harrogate Couple
we thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the tour, with 2 exceptions which did not spoil the overall quality.
1. the visit to Charlottesvile was a waste of time as when we arrived most of it was shut.
2. The food at the New Jersey stop was so bad that many people, including ourselves chose McDonalds for breakfast. It was also very badly situated.

Derbyshire Couple
A great holiday with good hotels. Journey times were long but to be expected. A well organised trip taking in so much. The only disappointment was the coach, 12 years old, no seat belts, broken seats, one TV monitor not working and broken hydraulics on the main door. However we would recommend this holiday.

East Grinstead Couple
The holiday was great. It was very interesting and the tour guide was very informative. Unfortunately the fall was late this year so we did not see the colours. The coach was very old. The aircon did not work properly and some of the TV monitors weren't working. In addition there were no seat belts.
