route 66 road trip

 Drive through 8 US States along the legendary Route 66

Few things are as well known as Route 66. Often known as “The Mother Road” or “Main Street of America”, Route 66 was established in 1926 and soon became a busy route from Chicago to Los Angeles covering almost 2500 miles.

Route 66 is a trip like no other, it isn’t as much about reaching the destination, it is more about the journey itself and the people you meet on the way. You’ll drive through ghost towns which are now just a shadow of their former glory, you’ll drive narrow and rough roads and you’ll eat and perhaps stay in some restored buildings along the route which existed back in its heyday. We don’t just sell this holiday, we help you experience it to the fullest

Despite many tour operators including Las Vegas in their Route 66 trips, this city was never part of the "Mother Road". We have a great selection of trips which take routes as close as possible to the original “Main Street of America” and other ones which do also include Las Vegas. Most of these itineraries also include a side trip to the Grand Canyon which is just 60 miles north of the Mother Road.

Here are a few of our standard trips. Remember - All our road trips can be shortened or extra nights added to suit your own requirements. We love building tailor made trips!
