Get your kicks on Route 66 with a legendary trip across America. From Chicago to Los Angeles, your budget-minded tour of eight states includes stays in Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.
Your affordable vacation is just in time to attend the 19th Annual Mother Road Festival in Springfield, Illinois. See automobile and motorcycle enthusiasts gather with hot cars, cool trucks, and vintage bikes with a salute to Route 66 and the tradition of the open road. The annual festival celebrates Route 66 (aka the Mother Road) which was called the “Main Street of America” and “Will Rogers Highway” for more than 50 years before the advent of the US Interstate system. Enjoy classic cars, live entertainment, contests and prizes, and other scheduled activities for the Route 66 and automotive enthusiast.
Visit Branson, Missouri — one of America’s most popular entertainment destinations — and opt for dinner and a show. Then just outside of Amarillo, Texas, see the famous Cadillac Ranch.
You’ll attend the amazing Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and see hundreds of hot-air balloons fill the sky with a multi-colored display. Seize the chance to shop for artisan jewelry made by local craftsmen.
Your budget travel plans include an exciting detour from Route 66 with two nights in Williams, a picturesque mountain town with Route 66 as the Main Street and the gateway to the Grand Canyon National Park, as well as a stop in Las Vegas with the option to relax by the pool, explore the Vegas Strip, or raft on the Colorado River. In Los Angeles, you’ll enjoy a tour of Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica. Discover vintage Americana, wide open spaces, and national treasures on your budget travel vacation across the USA.
VACATION EXPERIENCE ONLY A GLOBUS GUIDED TOUR CAN PROVIDE◊:
1. Trust in Togetherness.
When travelers book an escorted tour for their vacation, they’re choosing to explore the world in a small group of like-minded travelers: People who stick together, from start-to-finish. Now more than ever, there’s great comfort — and extraordinary confidence — in that choice.
2. Getting Around, Safe & Sound.
The company’s state-of-the-art vehicles have undergone thorough cleaning protocols between tours, and each day, travelers enjoy a freshly cleaned and disinfected motorcoach with touch-ups at every stop. Assigned seating (only next to those in your travel party), required hand sanitization and luggage disinfection (before boarding each vehicle) also offer reassurances for a worry-free getaway.
3. Touching Hearts, Not Hands.
With help from their on-site Tour Director, globetrotters can enjoy the ripple effects of eliminating many travel “touch points” including luggage handling; hotel check-ins and check-outs and the purchase of sightseeing tickets. Even better? Globus Tour Directors secure expedited entry into must-see attractions which means no waiting in long, crowded queues of people. For moments when touch is necessary, Tour Directors are armed with hand sanitizer.
4. Travel with Confidence.
While on trip, travelers can also enjoy many enhanced health and safety protocols with the company’s new On-Trip Assurance program. Leaving nothing to chance, Globus’ Global Health & Safety Team has established on-trip protocols that focus on travelers’ health and safety as well as the overall, travel experience including:
• Pre-trip health screenings and temperature checks plus daily health checks.
• Social distancing whenever possible, thanks in part to Globus Go Beyond Devices.
• Wearing masks when social distancing is not a possibility.
• Touch-free meals (no self-service options at hotels or alike).
• Enhanced cleaning and disinfection standards and protocols at hand-picked hotels.
