Go behind the scenes in Los Angeles to experience the Tournament of Roses, America's most famous New Year's celebration.

The highlight of this Tournament of Roses tour is the Tournament of Roses Parade, where you’ll enjoy specially selected, reserved grandstand seats only minutes from the beginning of the parade route. You’ll even receive an official Parade Program as a souvenir! Another tour highlight is the post-parade viewing area, where you’ll get up close and personal with the parade and smell the roses and other flowers that adorn the floats. Enjoy a farewell dinner on board the RMS Queen Mary, a special adventure Globus offers to celebrate this Rose Parade tour!

In addition to enjoying a sightseeing tour of Los Angeles, you’ll also visit the Ronald Regan Presidential Library, celebrating the life of the 40th U.S. President—another unique experience arranged by Globus.

All of this and more—including a scenic journey aboard an Amtrak train from Los Angeles to San Diego and two full days to explore San Diego—await you on this California tour.
