Itinerary

01

Day 1: New York City

Today is an arrival day and at 18:00 hrs you'll meet your tour leader and the Trekkers who'll be your travel companions. Before all the formalities and your first dinner as a group, make sure you go and explore the vibrant city streets of one of the world's most iconic cities. Grab a coffee over on the cool side of the bridge, Brooklyn; or simply marvel at all the lights and billboards in Times Square. With some of the most densely packed shopping, entertainment and nightlife districts in the USA, it's the city that just keeps on giving. There's a reason New York City is loved the world over and you're about to find out, so don't waste a second.

Day 2-3: Philadelphia - Washington, DC

In between the bright lights of NYC to the north and the grandeur of the capital to the south is Philadelphia; but don't underestimate this often-overlooked city, it definitely punches above its weight. Speaking of which, you may recognise Philadelphia from one of the most iconic movie moments in the award-winning movie Rocky. See the Liberty Bell and pay a visit to the Reading Terminal Market where you'll find heaps of stalls serving up some of the best grub in town. Tuck into a Philly cheesesteak for the ultimate mouth-wateringly good foodie experience! Your next East Coast pit stop is in America's capital, Washington DC. There's no better way to discover a city than with the help of a local expert, so we include a locally guided tour of the city monuments so you can get your head around the city's history. See the epic buildings of the Smithsonian Museums and the one and only White House.
