Globus escorted tours
Our first-class range of tours include more of everything you love, weaving in VIP access to the must-see sights and authentic experiences so you come away from your holiday having truly lived each place you visit.
Join in the ultimate New Year celebrations with prime seats to see the world-famous Tournament of the Roses Parade, a two-hour-long extravaganza of magnificent floral floats, marching bands, dancing and music in Los Angeles. The next morning, get a closer look at the lovingly crafted displays, before heading south to discover the wildlife, beaches and laid-back charms of San Diego city.
With accommodation, transfers, excursions, selected meals, private VIP home pick-up and the services of an expert Tour Director all included in the price, our escorted tour holidays are highly rated by our customers. But should you find a like-for-like tour cheaper elsewhere, we will match its price and give you a further £100 reduction.
You'll be picked up at home and whisked off to your departure point in a private, air-conditioned car, and we'll be waiting to take you home too.
Our private home pick-up service is included up to 50 miles to your departure airport. Your driver will happily load and unload your luggage, and drive you to your departure terminal. At the close of your trip, you'll be welcomed by your driver in the arrivals hall and returned home again. A supplement is payable per mile over 50 miles.

This morning, depart on a Los Angeles city tour, followed by a visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, celebrating the life of the 40th U.S. President. This evening, join your travelling companions at a special Globus New Year’s Eve Dinner and Dance Gala, complete with hats, party favours, live music, and, of course, champagne!
Happy New Year! Get ready for one of the world’s most popular parades—you will see it live! Globus has specially selected reserved grandstand seats only minutes from the beginning of the parade route for prime viewing. See the spectacular floral floats, marching bands from around the world, and celebrities. You will also receive the official parade programme to take home as a special souvenir. After the parade, return to the hotel for an elaborate New Year’s day brunch. Later, for those who wish, join a trip to Santa Monica, where you can walk the famous pier, shop the 3rd Street Promenade, or dip your toes into the ocean.
This morning, view the individual floats in the post parade viewing area. For many, this is the highlight of the entire event, as you can get up close and smell the roses. Be sure to bring your camera! We then head south to sunny San Diego for a 3-night stay.
This morning’s sightseeing tour of San Diego includes the Old Town, Balboa Park, and the Gaslamp Quarter. Next, a private guided tour of the USS Midway, one of America’s longest serving aircraft carriers. You will enter a floating city at sea and walk in the footsteps of 225,000 Midway sailors who served their country and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom, and peace. The remainder of the day is yours to explore. Why not enjoy some fresh seafood at a local restaurant or Italian cuisine in Little Italy?
Today is at leisure to explore more of San Diego on your own. You may wish to hit the sand on Mission Beach, explore Balboa Park and its museums, or visit Seaport Village with its shops and restaurants. This evening, your tour director hosts a festive farewell dinner.

Vibrant cities, unique experiences, and striking landscapes…all of this and more await you on this Southern California tour—with 2-night stays in Long Beach, San Diego, Palm Springs, and Death Valley National Park, as well as an overnight in Las Vegas.
Tour highlights include time in three unique settings: Joshua Tree National Park, Death Valley National Park, and Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Joshua Tree National Park contains two deserts and two large ecosystems. Here, enjoy a jeep tour to learn about the area's geology, fascinating plants and animals, and rich history. Ash Meadows National Refuge is the largest remaining oasis in the Mojave Desert and home to nearly 30 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anyplace else on earth. Here, stroll the boardwalks and learn about this unique area.
Death Valley National Park is the hottest place on earth. Visit its Badwater Basin, the lowest point in North America. Globus has also arranged a special experience here...a stargazing program with a local expert. Due to its remote location with limited city lights, Death Valley National Park offers one of the best places to view the stars. Stand in awe as daylight fades and the planets, stars, and constellations come into view.
On this Southern California tour, you’ll also experience vibrant cities. From Long Beach, visit beautiful Catalina Island. In San Diego, your sightseeing features Cabrillo National Monument, with one of the world's best harbour views, and lunch at the impressive Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego's legendary seaside resort—another special experience offered by Globus.
