    Wanna tick the dreamiest cities of the south off your list? This mighty road trip takes you from Diagon Alley to Dallas (the Universal Studios version, that is!), with a generous dose of country music, iconic Elvis Presley spots and juicy jazz cafe vibes along the way. Learning about Civil Rights, space travel and much more, you’ll be utterly flawed by the majestic culture, scenery and seriously good steakhouses.

Day 1: Miami to Orlando

Welcome to the American road trip of your lifetime. Today you’ll meet your fellow roadies for a brief tour of our starting point – Miami – before we hit the coach and make way for our first destination: Orlando. Orlando, here we go. We'll hit the hay tonight, ready for a star-studded day tomorrow.

Grand Hotel Orlando (or similar)


Day 2: Orlando

Today is your opportunity to visit the epic Universal Studios, where you can visit Diagon Alley, splash around in the vast water park or visit the islands of adventure. There's something for everyone in this dizzying spectacle of rides, film and entertainment.

Grand Hotel Orlando (or similar)


Day 3: Orlando to Augusta via Savannah

You can leave your Mickey ears on, but we're on the move again today... Our stop-off for today is Savannah, known for its cathedrals and majestic water fountains. Keep your eyes peeled for horse-drawn carriages as we check out the pretty parks. Augusta is home to the ...

Day 4: Augusta to Nashville

Today we'll head from the home of golf (and the boyhood home of former president Woodrow Wilson) to the home of country music. All in a day's work... Pull those boots out. Home to some of the musical greats, this city also played a crucial role in the civil rights mov...

Day 5: Nashville

Today is yours to explore Nashville. Truly a musical paradise, a tour around the Country Music Hall of Fame will give us the lowdown on this city's musical past.

Comfort Inn Stadium (or similar)


Day 6: Nashville to Memphis

Sorry Nash, but we gotta dash. Next up, it's the home of the King himself... Welcome to Memphis. Here you'll have a free afternoon to explore, but we have plenty of optional activities for you to choose from. Memphis is the home of Elvis Presley, and you'll have the c...

Day 7: Memphis to New Orleans

Speaking of 'a little more action', it's time for us to head to our next destination - New Orleans. The love-child of French & Caribbean culture, New Orleans will steal our hearts as soon as we arrive. We'll check out the French quarter and jam in Jackson Square b...

Day 8: New Orleans

New Orleans, baby... You have the whole of today to soak up the sounds, smells and songs of a truly soulful city. How about an airboat swamp tour out on the Mississippi?

La Quinta Inn and Suites New Orleans Downtown (or similar)


Day 9: New Orleans to Houston

Bidding farewell to New Orleans, it's time to make our way to Texas' largest city, Houston. With huge belt buckles & portion sizes to match, Houston city certainly lives up to its larger-than-life reputation. After we arrive and check in to our hotel, your Trip Ma...

Day 10: Houston to Dallas/Forth Worth

Houston, we have a... great day ahead of us today, starting out with a tour of the NASA Space Centre. (Would you believe us if we said it was out of this world?) After that, we'll hit the road once again, this time with Dallas in our sights. Here in Dallas/Fort Worth,...

Day 11: Dallas/Forth Worth

Today you're mostly free to explore Dallas however you like, but first, your Trip Manager will take you on an orientation tour, which includes the Dealey Plaza, The Arts District and the Dallas Reunion Tower.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Fort Worth Downtown (or Similar)


Day 12: End Dallas/Fort Worth

And it's here in Dallas that our USA adventure comes to an end. We've laughed, we've been amazed, we've sang along to more Dolly Parton hits than we thought possible. Now it's time to start dreaming about the next one.

We’re firm believers that life’s greatest experiences are made better by the people you share them with. That’s why Contiki invented group travel for young people in 1962 and we’ve spent the past 53 years perfecting it. You’ll explore amazing destinations with a group of 18-35 year olds from around the world who share your passion for adventure, good times and creating memories that define what it is to be young, wild and free.

No two travellers are the same and we know that, which is why we offer eight unique ways to explore the world. We have a number of options to choose from to create a vacation that’s perfect for you, from budget to accommodation style.

We're all about exploring the world with like-minded people, which is why we only run trips for 18-35 year olds, to celebrate being young, spirited and curious. You can expect to join a group of 18-53 awesome people from around the world on our Europe, Australia, North America and New Zealand trips, and in Asia and Latin America it's all about small group adventures with up to 25 travellers. Don't worry if you're not traveling as a couple or with a friend from home – though there are plenty of pairs, 50% of our travellers set off solo, meaning you'll have a ton of opportunities to make new friends.

With over 270 trips around the world and plenty of departure dates to work into your schedule, you'll never be short of options on where to go for your next great adventure.

About the company:
Contiki are the world leaders in social youth travel. We’ve been providing amazing travel experiences for young travellers, from 18-35 years old, since 1962. Imagine how good you would be at something if you had been doing it for more than 60 years?

Everything about Contiki is deeply rooted in our core values ‘Make Every Moment Count’ and ‘We’re about people’. We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk and live by our brand philosophy of ‘Travel.Together.’ which means to travel with one another, the destinations we visit, the cultures we enjoy and the environment, too.

Their trips create life-long memories for young people setting off to discover the world.
What they’re known for
