San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge

Would you like to see the USA’s iconic sights but do not want to spend your whole trip behind the wheel? Geckos Adventures has added a host of new small group tours for independently-minded, sociable travellers, using wifi-enabled minivans to get from A to B.

This is a world away from standard coach tours and is a week long, costing from around £599pp, excluding flights.  You will feel like a movie star, as you take a tour of Hollywood, get a taste for the great outdoors while you camp alongside the Colorado river, and explore the vast Grand Canyon on foot, or by helicopter.  Why not try your luck at a Las Vegas casino before cruising along The Strip in a limo, try a hike or bike your way through the glacier-formed granite monoliths of Yosemite National park.  You will surely discover why the Beatnik generation loved to hang out in San Francisco!

Perfect for younger travellers (or the young at heart), accommodation is mainly in the National Park camp grounds and solo travellers can rest assured that there are no compulsory single supplements.
