Further Information

Alternative itineraries

Please note that on some departures, this tour will operate in reverse.

The American arrivals process

Most British Citizens travelling to the USA do not need a visa but must register online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure. A charge of $14US applies. We will send you the details, along with your tickets, about two weeks prior to travel. Any persons who have a criminal record or have ever been arrested, even if not charged, cannot use this process and must apply for a visa.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though 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.

Departure dates and fall colours

Since the tour covers a large distance, from Massachusetts to southern Virginia, Fall foliage colours 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.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person\'s earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.
