About the trip

“The British are Coming, The British are Coming!” Yes indeed they are. Nearly 250 years since Paul Revere’s great rallying we invite you to follow the same Revolutionary footsteps taking in the scenery, the history, the sights and sounds and everything in between where we guarantee you’ll be impressed, astounded and amazed in equal measures. Our iconic 10 day journey starts in Historic Boston and then follows the Atlantic coast to one of the world’s true Megacities, and all it has to offer, New York.  Then moving on to Philadelphia another great city and the seat of the founding fathers and the true birthplace of American Independence before arriving finally at nation’s capital of Washington DC where the challenge is to try and visit even a tiny portion of possibly the greatest and most impressive collection of free museums and monuments in the world. It’s a trip of several lifetimes rolled into one with each stop along the way worthy of a visit in itself but we will make the very most of the time we have.
