Tailor-made Holidays USA and Canada

Do you remember the impossible glamour associated with far off American cities when we were growing up?  

Captured in song we were only 24 hours from Tulsa.  The Wichita lineman worked for the county, California Dreamin’ was becoming a reality and there were flower power homages to San Francisco.  The last train to Clarksville, the midnight train to Georgia and hundreds more; it seemed they’d all gone to look for America.

‘Long distance information, give me Memphis, Tennessee
Help me find a party that tried to get in touch with me
She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
‘Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall.’

Chuck Berry sang about speaking to his girl in Memphis but we can go one better and experience it for ourselves.  The city calls itself the ‘Home of Blues, Soul and Rock ‘N’ Roll’ and it’s hard to argue.  Elvis Presley’s recording career was launched here and his Graceland mansion is the most visited private home in America.  The most famous thoroughfare in Memphis, Beale Street, is where the blues began and traces its roots back to the late 19th century while a visit to the Stax Museum will convince you of the city’s soul credentials.

See Memphis as part of a Bon Voyage fly /drive tour of the South or as part of an escorted tour.  The city is also the start or finishing point for a Mississippi river cruise aboard a genuine paddlewheel steamer, the American Queen.

At Bon Voyage, we specialise in tailor-made holiday travel to the USA and Canada and have done since 1979!

We offer ideas, inspiration and hundreds of itinerary suggestions on our award-winning website.  The company’s first road trip dating back to those early years was titled ‘The Grand West Tour’ and was a three-week self-drive odyssey beginning in San Francisco and ending in Los Angeles by way of Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, San Diego and more.  That journey still features along with a host of suggested holidays along California’s Coast and America’s West.

Every holiday is tailor-made based on your own personal preferences determined through consultation with one of our experienced team.  Through the years, we’ve made over 1,500 Transatlantic visits and have gained an unparalleled level of knowledge and passion for the USA and Canada – ensuring that your North America holiday experience is second to none.

Not everyone wants a hotel-based holiday, so we offer motorhomes, city apartments, resort homes, log cabins, bed and breakfasts, country inns, plantation stays and much more besides.  You can cruise the highways on a Harley Davidson or cruise the seas to Alaska, Bermuda, the Caribbean and Mexico or across the Atlantic.  Seeing North America by rail is a terrific way to travel and our Western Canada itineraries can include the Rocky Mountaineer journey through some of the most amazing scenery the continent has to offer.
