With a more laid back feel, Leisurely tours are just the ticket for those who want to see the highlights at a relaxed pace. See everything from bustling cities to small 'one-horse' towns and spend time meeting the locals, sampling home-grown delicacies and really getting under the skin of the true Americas.
With a maximum group size of just 13 on most trips, time isn't wasted waiting for others, and you can be on the road and off to the next attraction in no time. The emphasis of our Leisurely tours is on beautiful surroundings, local culture or main attractions, with less (but still some) hiking and optional activities.
On all of our leisurely tours you'll stay in comfortable hotels chosen for their close proximity to the highlights, so you can spend more time exploring the incredible sights America and Canada are well-known for.
