1 Reviews of New York to LA small group tour

2 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 11 Sep 2023 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Seeing my sister.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Don’t do it. I thought the trip was not very good value. It was amazing to see America, however the tour guides were not helpful and did not seem to know their stuff. It was honestly disappointing.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

No. We caught Ubers (that we had to pay for) but in NYC we caught trains (and paid for those too despite travel being included”.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I was upset with the experience. After saving for two years to go on the trip.
Definitely should have booked through another company.

Thank you for taking time to fill out the feedback form about your Coast-to-Coast Tour, we appreciate it! We are happy you were able to spend time with your sister during the trip, but we are sorry you felt disappointed by the trip itself.

We would be open to hearing more from you about the tour and the reasons why you were upset with the experience, and our team are reaching out to discuss the issues with paying for the transportation whilst on the tour.

We would like to hear more about why you felt our tour did not benefit local people, reduce environmental impacts or support conservation, and welcome suggestions and feedback regarding these topics as we are always looking for ways to improve our tours.

We aim to use public transport, when possible, but with the US Transport system, there are times where alternative methods may be used. Our tours aim to give back to local businesses and community when possible. For example, we offer our travelers the chance to give back to the local community by volunteering in Los Angeles with 'Heal the Bay' by helping clean up the coastline. We aim to give back to small businesses, by taking you to independent cafes, eateries and markets when in the bustling cities, and include a number of visits to Navajo run small businesses during the trip to the Grand Canyon.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.


We are following the guidance of the National Parks Conservation Association in America and are ensuring that our tours adhere to their guidelines. For example, before entering the park- we show our travelers the information about where to place their trash. On each of our trips, we emphasise the need to dispose of waste responsibly and encourage our travelers to take advantage of the new and, now numerous, water refill stations which helps to eliminate plastic waste. There are now hundreds of places where trash can be recycled and by indicating clearly where these are and having our guides explain the importance (and success thus far) we can play our part in ensuring our groups are responsible travelers within the parks. We operate in a similar manner within the Grand Canyon and the National Park conservation area there.

We encourage all of our travelers to say no to single use plastics and to bring their own water bottles. A lot of our tours are connected via public transport- we take trains across much of the East Coast and up the Pacific Coast and only take flight when necessary. Within cities- we use the metro services and only use minibuses where necessary.

When we spend time on the beach- our adventure leaders stress the need to be responsible and not leave trash on the beach.


In the Grand Canyon, we have a session which focuses on Native American culture and emphasise the importance of these lands to these communities. The area is of huge importance to these communities and we are working with the Grand Canyon Trust who provides a series of initiatives designed around both supporting these communities and shining a light on their importance in the region. There are number of visits to Navajo run small businesses that we will include on the trip. We also share links to some of the work that the Grand Canyon Trust is doing in our booking packs to further support their efforts and provide our travelers with the information to build an understanding of the area. There are a really good series of audio testimonies from the Trust that we share with the travelers before this part of their tour.

Our trips are also packed with experiences that are designed to bring an understanding of America’s history and culture. Whether that’s walking Boston’s Freedom Trail, seeing the Liberty Bell or witnessing the grandeur of Washington’s monuments. We also visit the 9/11 Memorial and Freedom Tower and aim to educate our travelers on the recovery efforts made by New Yorkers following the attacks. We also include various opportunities to sample the local cuisine and have a clam chowder making class. We also encourage our travelers to read up on some of the great American literature to be better acquainted with the story of America.

On the last day of the trip, we also arrange a chance to give something back to the LA community with a volunteering trip to one of the city’s soup kitchens. Poverty is a real issue in California and this project helps to give people a lifeline who are struggling in society.
