Route 66 guided tour

Mike & Donna's verdict:

If you ever plan to motor west, be warned that nowadays Route 66 is hard to find and follow in places. One option is to join a group tour and let someone else lead the way to the classic diners, the historic landmarks and museums, and everything else that makes this epic journey so special.

Route 66 guided tour

Intrepid Travel says

Our small group style of travel means you’ll stay under the radar, travel the local way, eat the local way and sleep the local way. You’ll get as close to real life as possible (without actually moving in).

You’ll have the unsurpassed knowledge of a local leader, taking you out of the guidebooks and into a world that’s waiting to be discovered. And with more than 20 trips in the USA alone, you’re bound to find something that’s just right for you. Small groups, big adventures. That’s our motto.

Follow in the tyre-tracks of settlers, cowboys, migrants and travellers on ‘the main street of America’ and discover the importance of this pathway through America’s heartland. From the green shores of the Great Lakes, watch the landscape gradually change from fertile farmlands to arid desert, eventually giving way to the celebrated beaches of the Californian coastline.

Embark on the US road trip of a lifetime and discover the Historic Route 66, with a choice of departure dates between June and September.

You can also experience cityscapes and magnificent National Parks alike on the Best of America, or cut through the heart of the USA and hit the open road between New York and New Orleans on the Big Apple to Big Easy.

Jump aboard and get ready to explore one of the most fascinating nations on Earth.

Our trips are for all ages over 18 years. Whenever possible, we arrange for single travellers to share with someone else of the same sex (no supplement).
