General visits to New York & Washington

Many groups are now choosing a two centre trip to New York & Washington. American Politics is a hot topic of conversation right now and where better to learn more about the US Senate than Washington DC.

Combine this with a visit to the bright lights of New York and you can see the political and the cultural capitals of the United States in one short trip. 

At Further and Higher Travel our knowledge of these two cities is unrivalled. We'll work with you to select the most suitable accommodation to suit your budget and advise on the best visits to include so you'll really make the most out of your visit to these two cities.

If you'd like to learn more about the history of the United States, you can make an en route stop in Philadelphia or add on a few nights stay in Boston. Ask us for more information.
