    • 3 nights accommodation in a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.
    • 3 breakfasts, 1 dinner.
    • New Year's Eve dinner.
    • New Year's Eve club VIP entry pass.

    Day 1 Arrive Las Vegas
    Welcome to 'Sin City' Las Vegas You can arrive any time today as your Trip Leader will leave a welcome message for you at the hotel and arrange a time to meet with you in the early evening to go over the itinerary for the next few days.

    Day 2 Las Vegas
    There's round-the-clock fun just waiting for us to get stuck in to in Vegas. It's impossible to run out of things to do here: take a gondola ride down a faux-Venice canal; marvel at twentieth-century Pyramids of Giza; climb the city's own Eiffel Tower; or check out any number of other recreated world wonders and much, much more besides. And if you're still at a loss for what to do there is always world class shopping, helicopter rides, art museums, incredible buffets and even indoor shooting ranges. Viva Las Vegas And it's New Year's Eve, so after our included celebratory dinner your Trip Leader will take you to one of Las Vegas' top nightclubs where you will enjoy VIP entry to ring in the New Year in style.

    Day 3 Las Vegas
    Today is yours free to do as much or as little as you like. If the thought of relaxing by the pool all day exhausts you there's plenty more action to be had in and around Las Vegas. If you feel like going a bit further afield you could take a helicopter flight out over the truly spectacular Grand Canyon or a day trip to the stunning Zion National Park. There's also an abundance of other adventure activities on offer including ATV tours, indoor sky-diving and zip-lining; there's really nothing left but to choose.

    Day 4 Depart Las Vegas
    After breakfast our trip ends and it is time to say farewell to your fellow travellers. But don't worry, as they say 'what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas'.

Did you know that a camels' hump isn't full of water, but full of fat? It help camels survive up to two weeks without food, allowing them to lose up to 25 gallons of water with no side effects. It also helps keep their body temperature in check. Now that's a hump worth having.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
