When it comes to the USA, our returning travellers' highlights come thick and fast: on a sunset horse ride in Arizona, trotted around a corner to find we'd arranged a desert 'cook out' with live band; an impromptu microbrewery tour in Oregon after our guide, Kieron, noted his group's interest in - there's no other way of saying this - enjoying a tipple; and snorkelling with manatee in Florida's Crystal River: "I was petrified at first, but when I calmed down, it was incredible".
How do you start to tackle the myriad charms, adventures and tastes of the USA? You're looking at a country with everything from tropical beaches kissed by awe-inspiring surf, empty arctic tundra and desert worthy of a Hollywood movie, along with some of the planet's most sophisticated cities.
The solution is to trust our superb, highly experienced North American team to inform and advise you, before drawing up a perfectly pitched, creative itinerary. With the very best guides and long-established contacts, we can arrange seamless travel across the vast country, highlighting its iconic sights and personal holiday priorities, while offering exclusive insider experiences: tours of private art collections, visits to civil war battlefields with renowned historians, wine tasting with owners of boutique vineyards, driving vintage Mustang convertibles on the Pacific Coastal Highway...
We'll help you discover New England's colonial architecture and beautiful coastal villages, Florida's white powder sand, laid-back Keys and sprawling Everglades - guests have emailed us about the thrill of feeding alligators from their airboats - and the Appalachian Trail's magnificent landscapes (we suggest a short hike rather than the entire 2,180 miles).
You'll find some of the world's most gorgeous national parks from the Great Smoky Mountains forests to Yellowstone's geysers and Canyonlands' mesas, to Yosemite's waterfalls. You can head west for Hawaii's legendary surf, south for Louisiana's bayous and north for Alaska's glaciers, volcanoes and bears. Link any of them together and you've a memorable holiday road trip including Highway One linking Los Angeles and San Francisco, Highway 61 between New Orleans and Minnesota - the 'Blues Highway' - and US1 from Miami to Key West.
And, of course, there are the cities: from New York's dynamism and Chicago's architecture to Portland's cafes and San Francisco's hills. We could go on, but as Americans say 'enough already'. It's all waiting for you and with A&K, it's all possible.
