Take your bite of the US of A

Take Alcatraz tours. The infamous San Francisco jail held some of America's most notorious crims, and on an Alcatraz tour, you can peek inside this legendary prison. It's just a boat ride from San Francisco and the amazing Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco tours are definitely worth including in your American itinerary.

If you're spending some time in California, check out Los Angeles tours. Obsessed with the lifestyles of the rich and the famous? Look into Hollywood tours - they'll leave you with stars in your eyes. And, if the high roller lifestyle is making you wish your student income stretched a little further, maybe you should gamble on Las Vegas tours? Las Vegas is the party capital of the US and heaps of fun!

You can also take Grand Canyon tours from Vegas. You'll be blown away by the sheer size of the area, and the best way to see it is with a Grand Canyon helicopter tour or there's plenty of other Grand Canyon tours that are equally as awesome.

On the topic of natural wonders, don't forget Niagara Falls. Renowned for its beauty, if you're visiting the Big Apple you can take Niagara Falls tours from New York. Ah New York, New York! You really need to take a big bite out of this Big Apple. The best way to explore all of the NYC boroughs is with New York tours for all the major sights plus some local hotspots.

Where there's a river there's often a bridge, and believe it or not, the locals went to London for theirs Strange but true, the London Bridge has spanned both the Thames and the Colorado - not a bad CV .

    Day 2 Grand Canyon
    There's a famous Chuck Berry song in which he implores those listening to "get your kicks on Route 66", and today we'll darn sure try our best We follow this historic highway as we head to the Grand Canyon, a staggering natural wonder and UNESCO World Heritage Site. There's time to enjoy impressive views of the gargantuan gorge by walking between the many viewpoints along the rim of the canyon. We'll be able to see over 2 billion years of colourful geological history, and we can learn more about the geology, animal life, Native American history and exploration of the Canyon by joining a Ranger talk or visiting a museum. Then we can cap the day off with what we like to call a 'Totally Topdeck' experience - by taking in an unforgettable golden sunset over the Grand Canyon itself.

    Day 3 Las Vegas
    The gorgeous views of yesterday can only be topped by taking an optional helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon before we depart. This once-in-a-lifetime chance to savour bird's eye views of such an iconic location is sure to be a highlight of your Topdeck North American trip. From here we head back along Route 66 to 'Sin City', Las Vegas There's time to cool off by the hotel pool before diving head first into the nightlife of the Las Vegas Strip. The dazzling lights of the incredible hotels and casinos are just the beginning, and the sheer scale of the attractions will make your jaw drop People-watching and free outdoor shows are fun, cheap, and will get you in the mood for the night ahead. Then we can kick start our Vegas party experience with an included Party Bus tour of the strip - it's like a private nightclub on wheels Afterwards the night is ours for the taking - why not take in one of the world famous Las Vegas shows or visit one of the legendary casinos for a flutter?

    Day 4 Las Vegas
    We then have a full day to make sure we get the complete Vegas experience. 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 if you're still at a loss for what to do there is always world class shopping, helicopter rides, art museums, incredible buffets, indoor shooting ranges and more await us. Viva Las Vegas.

    Day 5 Sierra Nevada
    You might have 'got down' on the dance floor in Vegas - well today we're about to 'get down' once again, quite literally, as we drive through the lowest point in North America, Death Valley National Park. There are opportunities for some short walks to take in the amazing desert landscapes, salt flats and nearby mountain ranges. Even though this place seems dry and lifeless, you might just catch a glimpse of a pupfish in the spring or a roadrunner dashing in the distance - but we can't guarantee that Wyle E Coyote will be in hot pursuit. We then head for southern end of the striking Sierra Nevada Mountains, home to the highest mountain in the lower 48 states, Mt Whitney. We finish the day off in true American style with a visit to an 'all American' bar for an included 'cowboy' dinner and a game of pool - could you be the resident Topdeck pool shark?

    Day 6 Yosemite
    Today we'll see the gem of the Sierra Nevada Mountains as we drive to Yosemite National Park. In picturesque Yosemite Valley you'll be awed by stunning waterfalls, alpine rivers and massive snow-capped granite monoliths, but also keep an eye out for the park's amazing wildlife There will be a chance to explore this beautiful area with some short walks in the afternoon.

    Day 7 San Francisco
    Today we leave the mountains behind and head to our final destination, the delightful 'City by the Bay', San Francisco. As we walk on the iconic Golden Gate Bridge we'll enjoy great views of the gorgeous San Francisco Bay, notorious Alcatraz Island, and the impressive city skyline. We arrive at our departure point in mid-afternoon, where our Topdeck trip sadly comes to an end. It's a great idea to book some post-trip accommodation with us, as you'll give yourself more opportunity to explore San Francisco. Take a cable car ride to China Town, explore the bohemian North Beach neighbourhood, or see the heart of the city around Union Square. It's a wonderful city in which to say fond farewells to new found friends

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!
