What to expect from the National Parks Loop

One of the most unique areas in the US. Especially if you love the idea of visiting National Parks that protect formations dating back billions of years. From the Grand Canyons, one of the 7th wonders of the world, to the Arches of Utah and the blue waters of the Colorado River, you will be mesmerized by the scenery enveloping right before your eyes. Simply driving through canyons and valleys will entertain you. This is also the region rich in Native-American Heritage and you will be able to learn more about certain tribes' cultures and history.

This itinerary is planned so you visit the region in 9 days. As an option, we also provide an extension for those that are interested in visiting the Parks of California and San Francisco.

When to plan your National Parks Loop?

If you don't want to encounter any possibility of road closures due to winter-storms and snow, we recommend the months from May to October, especially late Spring and early Fall. Try to avoid the middle of Summer, especially August, a "tough" month due to the extreme heat. Although it is true, the weather tends to be a bit drier in the South-West with less humidity, still, once you reach 120F, believe me, you don't really care if it's humid or not!

Medical Insurance

International Travelers? We certainly recommend adding a Medical Insurance while traveling in the US as medical bills are quite expenses. When picking a company, check that there is a 24/7 costumer service and compare the prices of the various policies and the limitations.

International Flights

International flights are not included in the price of this package - we can help you book international and domestic flights.

  • Tipping in the United States is standard practice.
  • Generally, in the United States, accommodation in triple rooms is composed of two large beds or a large bed and a small bed and quadruple accommodation is decorated with two large beds.
  • Driving in the United States:
  • 1. Passing on the right is allowed and everyone does it, don't be intimidated by roads with more than five lanes.
  • 2.It is authorized (and obligatory) to turn right at a red light when there is a signal indicating it.
  • 3. As far as parking is concerned, check the times when you can leave your car there, never park in front of a fire hydrant (although there is no sign expressly prohibiting it). If the parking spaces have markings painted on the ground to delimit them, leave the car in the middle, even if the space seems huge. on your parking meter (check before paying as there are days of the week or times when it is not necessary to pay).
  • 4.Beware of tolls. They may be marked with the words toll or turnpike and usually have no barrier, so it is possible to pass the tolls without realizing it and be fined a few weeks later. Do not stay on the lanes indicated as reserved for “Fastrak” and have cash on hand, as in some tolls you can only pay in this way.
  • 5.Unless you want to have a fine and an awkward conversation with a Highway Patrol officer, it's best not to drive more than 5 or 10 miles above the speed limit. If the police end up stopping you despite everything, always keep your hands on the steering wheel and visible and don't even think about making jokes.

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
