This 14-day, 2500-mile small group tour travels route 66 by minibus, no driving required. Designed for the mature age traveller it is easy paced with regular stopovers providing ample opportunity for sightseeing and relaxation. It is not practical to drive the full length of old route 66 as over the years much has been amalgamated and/or realigned. That said we still do a lot of travelling on the Mother Road and visit most of the major attractions along the way.
THE ROUTE 66 EXPERIENCE: Route 66 is without doubt the most well-known road in the USA. It is iconic, a symbol of an ever-changing America. Probably no other road in the world has as many interesting and strange sights. Leaning water towers, all kinds of giants, restored gas stations, Wigwam Motels, hot-rods and custom cars, Barbed wire museum, a painted desert and Cadillac Ranch to name just a few. Then there’s the eating places like The Big Texan in Amarillo (Home to the 72oz steak – eat it in under an hour and its free) and Peggy Sues 1950’s diner with great food and one of the best gift shops in the USA. What makes Route 66 extra special is the variety of attractions and scenery. At Oklahoma, we visit the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, ride the longest aerial tramway in the world at Albuquerque, drive through a painted desert and petrified forest at Holbrook, to mention just some of the many diverse places we visit.
