The high vantage point from your coach’s window means you can take in all the glorious scenery, whether it’s a vast rural landscape or an urban city centre.

    On rare occasions your coach may not have a W.C. facility on board. We have a strict “no smoking and no alcohol” policy on all our coaches. During transfers we may use an alternative vehicle (and smaller coaches) which may not have the above facilities.

Even though in America credit and debit cards are widely accepted, keep in mind the exchange rate may be poor and commission will be charged.
