I'm here to tailor-make your perfect North America holiday. Give me a call and I'll use my expertise to create your personalised experience.

This riveting eight-day itinerary highlights the extraordinary cultural and historical legacy of two of America’s most iconic cities – New York and Washington, D.C. You’ll fly into New York, and stay at the stylish hotel, The Carlyle, for the next four nights, located on Manhattan’s affluent Upper East Side.

New York is best explored by district, so spend the next few days moving through its diverse neighbourhoods, from the hip, bohemian streets of Soho on the West Side, to the prosperous financial district in Lower Manhattan, and the historic brown-stone buildings of Brooklyn Heights.

Climb to the top of the Edge in Hudson Yard, or Summit ONE in Midtown for panoramic views over this dynamic concrete jungle, before taking an evening stroll through lush Central Park, back to your Madison Avenue hotel.

Catch the three-hour Acela train to Washington D.C., where you’ll stay for the remainder of your trip in sophisticated boutique hotel, the Rosewood Washington D.C, in federal-style Georgetown.

Learn all about the U.S.’s turbulent history at the Museum of American History or the Holocaust Museum, both located just off the National Mall. Take in awe-inspiring views of the majestic White House building, before attending a world-class jazz concert at the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts. 

Jet off for the cultural trip of a lifetime in land of the free and the home of the brave.

Itinerary

Arriving in the big apple, a private car will be waiting to whisk you off to sophisticated Manhattan hotel, The Carlyle – your base for the next four nights. Explore the prosperous Upper East Side with a visit to the Guggenheim and MET museums before taking an evening stroll in sprawling Central Park.
Jump in a yellow taxi across the city to Manhattan’s West Side. Walk the 1.45 mile long High Line over to Chelsea to sample an array of culinary delights at the bustling Chelsea Market food hall. Wander the streets of Greenwich Village, Soho, and Tribeca to experience New York’s cool, bohemian culture. Visit SUMMIT One Vanderbilt for mesmerising views of New York City.
Take the subway down to Lower Manhattan, where you’ll find the city’s buzzing financial district. Learn about the world trade centre bombing at the 9/11 museum on an exclusive early access tour or wander the historic, residential streets of Brooklyn Heights. During the summer months, get the ferry over to Governors Island for amazing views of the city skyline.
Explore the edgy neighbourhood of Bushwick in Brooklyn, and behold its imaginative graffiti wall art, independent shops, and pavement cafes. Or take a tour of one Williamsburg’s many craft breweries. Back in Manhattan, ignite your creativity with an afternoon at the world-famous MOMA located in the city’s Midtown district.
Assume your business class seat on the Acela train from New York to Washington, D.C., where you’ll be transferred to the Rosewood – your boutique hotel accommodation for the next three nights. Spend the rest of your day learning about the history of Georgetown through food on one of the neighbourhood’s legendary Fork Tours.
Take in all that Washington, D.C. has to offer from the top of the Washington Monument, offering panoramic views of the city. Look down on the iconic White House building and the National Mall – the city’s vast landscaped park. After dinner, catch a first-rate show or jazz concert at the John F. Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts.
Cross the Potomac River over to Virginia and take a fascinating tour of Arlington National Cemetery, where some 400,000 US military veterans are buried and honoured. Return to Washington D.C. in time for an evening performance at Ford’s Theatre – the place where President Abraham Lincoln was infamously assassinated in 1865.
Say goodbye to the many monuments of Washington, D.C. and make your way back to Dulles Airport for your flight back home.
