Days 1-2 Miami
Miami's famous South Beach area is the perfect place to immerse yourself in the city's vibrant culture. Head there on arrival in your hire car and explore the neighbourhood's Art Deco buildings and gorgeous beaches. You'll have plenty of time to relax by the pool at your hotel, but a graffiti art tour is an exciting new perspective to see the streets. With the popularity of Art Basel Miami, the city has become a new centre for art - especially street art and street murals. The Wynwood Arts District has become an exciting centre for street art -with streets and avenues of beautiful murals covering warehouses and buildings. On your tour, you will be accompanied by a local street artist that has worked with some of Miami's most famous muralists and himself has works at major Miami hotels. He will take you around the neighbourhood, show you his favourite pieces and even do a demonstration of how to use a spray can and do graffiti art.

Day 3 Everglades
Waving the heady atmosphere of Miami goodbye, today you'll be heading into one of the United States' greatest natural wonders: the Everglades. From a science farm on the edge of the park (you'll visit before the general public arrives, of course) you'll jump aboard an airboat for an adventurous ride through the 'rivers of grass', where you can observe unique wildlife as you glide across the still waters. A tour of the science facilities is a great way to observe the research being undertaken to protect the local wildlife and you'll even get to handle some critters (if you want!). A fruit milkshake from one of the local stands is a refreshing break after your adventurous morning -something you can only get in the Everglades. Continuing on the wildlife theme, a Wildlife Sanctuary will give you an insight into the area's abandoned animals -with a difference! There's lots of residents here, from tigers to snapping turtles, and you'll get an up close and personal encounter with a very large alligator snapping turtle -the largest variety in the United States, before nipping back to Miami.
1 Hotel South Beach | Meals: Room Only
Days 4 - 6 Palm Beach
Along the coast is Palm Beach, where you'll have ample opportunity to recline on the shore or look at the magnificent mansions that the city is famous for. You'll relish your hire car, so why not put it to good use and allow us to organise a few tours to get you out and about?
Breakers | Meals: Room Only
Day 7 - 10 Orlando
A scenic three hour drive brings you to Orlando, where we've arranged a VIP experience at Disney to delight little ones (and grown-ups too -we won't tell). A private car and VIP guide will whisk you through a special 'employees only' entrance to Walt Disney World Resort, where you'll be escorted around the park of your choice, skipping the infamous lines. Universal Orlando is your next point of call, with a VIP group tour (see, we're all about the VIP!). An exclusive breakfast sets you up for the day before you are escorted by a Universal expert on a guided tour throughout the studios. You'll get exclusive backstage access, learn fun insider information and enjoy the amazing rides and attractions without waiting in line. It's the perfect end to a fun-filled adventure before you fly back to the UK.
