‘We arrived at our hotel around 4pm.

Customer tip.
‘On arrival at the Grand Canyon National Park entry kiosk, we purchased an annual pass for all the National Park’s in America. At a cost of $80 it was a bargain considering the one offer entry to a single park is $25 in most cases. On this trip we would have spent $100 visiting at least 4 parks. What’s great is it’s valid for a whole year so if you travel again within a year or have friends of family coming over they can use it too.’ Joan – Lincoln.

Overnight – Page / Lake Powell

There is not let up on this voyage of discovery so after an early night we recommend and early start  to maximise the time you can spend in Zion National Park today before heading onto the entertainment capital of the world Las Vegas. On arrival at Zion park your car in the nearby community of Springdale at one of the numerous shuttle car parking lots. The parking lot at the visitor centre in the park typically fills by mid morning so this is a good tip to avoid hassle. The free shuttle runs as often as every 7 minutes so take your time. The shuttle is the only way to get properly into beautiful Zion National Park. It’s a park where massive canyon walls ascend toward a brilliant blue sky. To experience Zion, you need to walk among the towering cliffs, or challenge your courage in a small narrow canyon. These unique sandstone cliffs range in color from cream, to pink, to red. They could be described as sand castles crowning desert canyons. It will take you about 2 hours to get here from Bryce and you need to allow about 3 hours to get to Las Vegas – A long day but a truly rewarding one. You have 2 nights in Las Vegas so you can afford to roll up into Las Vegas as late as you like.

The Cable Car museum is well worth a visit and a short walk from there will take you to Lombard Street probably the windiest road in the world! San Francisco has many communities but perhaps the pick are Chinatown and North Beach or ‘Little Italy’. Choose to lunch in one and have dinner in the other. Still to be covered off are the Golden Gate Bridge of course, Alcatraz Island (Must pre-book) and the hustle and bustle of Fishermans Wharf.

Customer tip.
‘With only one day to see so much we bought tickets for the open top bus loops and jumped on at Union Square. We were able to hop on and off as we pleased and crammed loads in. The tour guides were always very informative and we finished down at Fishermans Wharf in time to take our pre-booked tour to Alctraz Island. You do like a self guided tour with earphones. The narration is done by ex inmates and prison workers, this was our favourite. We finished the afternoon off by riding back to Union Square on one of the cable cars and went for dinner at an Italian in Little Italy – We had a really top day.’ Adam – Colchester.

Do I need a visa to travel to the usa?

In most circumstances, no visa is required for travel to the USA for any British Citizen passport holder and many other European passport holders, whose countries qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This program permits entry for up to 90 days for business or leisure purposes. Everyone must apply to use the VWP via the online Electronic System of Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Advice states this should be done online at least 72 hours prior to departure. On payment of the $14 fee this system usually issues an electronic confirmation within minutes but this is not guaranteed and there are certain criteria travellers must consider before applying via ESTA to use the Visa Waiver Program. Once granted the VWP authorization is valid for 2 years.

It is essential that everyone who plans to travel to the United States reads the information contained on the following page – Visa Waiver Program

Please note : From 21st January 2016 The United States implemented changes to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015. One of the major changes implemented in January excludes any British National who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen since March 01st 2011 from using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Full details are contained on the above link but those affected will need to apply for a Visitor Visa with the U.S. Embassy before booking their travel arrangements.

You are advised to complete your ESTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

To use ESTA now please only use the following website – Official ESTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the VWP or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

British Nationals and travellers from other European countries can enjoy visa-exempt travel to and via Canada but must first use the online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) at a cost of CA$7.00 per person. Most online applications are approved with minutes by email but the process can take longer particularly if supporting documentation is requested. An eTA is valid for 5 years and allows you to travel for up to 6 months on any one visit.

You are advised to apply for your eTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

For applications and full information on the scheme please only visit – Official Canadian Government eTA Website

Do I need a visa to travel to the usa?

In most circumstances, no visa is required for travel to the USA for any British Citizen passport holder and many other European passport holders, whose countries qualify for the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This program permits entry for up to 90 days for business or leisure purposes. Everyone must apply to use the VWP via the online Electronic System of Travel Authorization (ESTA).  Advice states this should be done online at least 72 hours prior to departure. On payment of the $14 fee this system usually issues an electronic confirmation within minutes but this is not guaranteed and there are certain criteria travellers must consider before applying via ESTA to use the Visa Waiver Program. Once granted the VWP authorization is valid for 2 years.

It is essential that everyone who plans to travel to the United States reads the information contained on the following page – Visa Waiver Program

Please note : From 21st January 2016 The United States implemented changes to the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) as part of the Terrorist Travel Protection Act of 2015. One of the major changes implemented in January excludes any British National who has travelled to Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen since March 01st 2011 from using the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). Full details are contained on the above link but those affected will need to apply for a Visitor Visa with the U.S. Embassy before booking their travel arrangements.

You are advised to complete your ESTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

To use ESTA now please only use the following website – Official ESTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the VWP or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.

Do I need a visa to travel to Canada?

British Nationals and travellers from other European countries can enjoy visa-exempt travel to and via Canada but must first use the online Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) at a cost of CA$7.00 per person. Most online applications are approved with minutes by email but the process can take longer particularly if supporting documentation is requested. An eTA is valid for 5 years and allows you to travel for up to 6 months on any one visit.

You are advised to apply for your eTA prior to confirming any travel arrangements.

For applications and full information on the scheme please only visit – Official Canadian Government eTA Website

Complete North America Limited cannot be held responsible for cancellation charges incurred by travellers who have booked travel and are subsequently unable to travel as part of the eTA scheme or who are unable to obtain a Visitor Visa. If you have any questions after reading the information supplied above please speak to a member of our team.
