What our clients say about our USA holidays

  • The service I received from my consultant Emma is excellent I sometimes need to contact her quite a few times with questions and ask her to quote for a variety of different requests before choosing so that I have all the options on the table. It's good to be able to use the same personal consultant as she gets to know you and understand your likes/dislikes. Thank you Emma for your great service.

    Janice J

  • We had a great holiday in New England. The core itinerary was chosen by Wexas, and we incorporated stays with friends along the route. The choice of hotels was very good, and convenient for the attractions of the localities. We were very pleased with the Wexas itinerary and choice of hotels. They were a great introduction and overview of New England and its history.

    Thomas T

  • Heather, our destination specialist, made sure she understood what we were looking for in our trip to the US Canyonlands; the itinerary met our needs perfectly, and the standard of accommodation booked for us was very good. Heather also took care to make sure we had everything we needed, right up to our departure.

    Paul P

  • This was a very special anniversary trip to Florida and the Western Caribbean for my wife and I, including in part our two sons and their families, some three years in the planning.

Where to go in the USA

There are so many different experiences for the traveller to the United States, and many of them depend on which region of the country you’re planning to visit. Regional differences include accents, cuisines, attitudes and a widely varying landscape, making a holiday to America the starting point for a number of different adventures.

California

California holidays sum up the best of the American dream. The Golden State is one of scorching deserts, snowcapped Sierra Nevada Mountains, vast wilderness areas and national parks, celebrated wineries, the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, and the seaside cities of San Francisco and San Diego.

New England

Between historic Boston, and idyllic Cape Cod of Massachusetts, the bucolic lands of Vermont and culture-rich Rhode Island, there's so much to see in the north-east of America. Relaxation, road trips and warm hospitality are all prominent features – take advantage of all three with a luxury holiday.

USA's National Parks

America's great national parks are a genuine highlight for many visitors to the US. The Grand Canyon is one of the wonders of the natural world, while majestic Yellowstone is widely regarded as the oldest national park in the world.

New York

When most people think of New York, it's the skyscrapers of Manhattan that immediately spring to mind, but the Empire State has so much more to offer than the exciting streets of its eponymous major city.

The USA is huge and therefore massive variations in the weather occur, dependent on where and when you visit. The northeast experiences a similar climate to the UK, with a distinct winter, spring, summer and autumn. Temperatures can be more extreme however - New York can experience long periods of heavy snowfall in winter and baking hot summers - and rainfall in the far northeast is markedly low. The southeast is more tropical, meaning dry and warm winters and humid summers. The hurricane season lasts between June and late-November. Much of the southwest is hot and dry - Nevada, which lies in the rain shadow of the Californian ranges, is …

  • Discover South Carolina: Charming Charleston

    There is something special, something alluring about Charleston, South Carolina. Perhaps it’s the 18th-century grandeur, the garden-lined charm of its antebellum houses or its spectacular surrounds of white-sand beaches and pristine barrier islands. It really is three destinations in one.

  • Vintage travel posters to inspire wanderlust

    We take a look at the spectacularly bold travel advertisements of the 1930s and their promise of golden temples in India, lakeside retreats in Italy and deers grazing outside of Japanese temples. You'll be surprised at how much holds true to this day.
