Looking forward to 2015

As 2014 comes to a close we look forward to the next year and all the new holidays we have on offer. 2015 also marks the start of our 25th anniversary year!

Fuel Surcharges reduced – about time too!!

At long last, and only after the price of oil has halved compared to this time last year, the airlines have cut the cost of the fuel surcharge. Only by about £10.00 per passenger at this time, but they must surely reduce it further soon. The fuel surcharge on a Heathrow – Los Angeles flight is still £229.00 per person so a £10.00 reduction is tiny – but it all helps.

California Dreaming

Just back from a great, if rather too short, research trip to Northern California. Just my son (Alex 22) and myself on a road trip to San Francisco, Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe and Monterey.

I’ve been to all of these places many times, but it is always good to go back, learn new stuff and update the knowledge, especially when California is one of our most important regions. Continue reading…

Website updated!

Lots of hard work over the last couple of months, but it is worth it.  The Just America website is almost completely updated for 2013.

New tours include a ‘California Coast By Train’ tour – 14 nights/15-days from San Francisco to San Diego including Santa Barbara and Los Angeles – great tour if you don’t want to drive, and lots of optional excursions if you want to explore Yosemite, Monterey etc.

We have also added a ‘Trans Canada ByRail’ tour from Toronto (with a side trip to Niagara Falls), through Winnipeg, Jasper, the Icefields Parkway, Banff, then through the Rockies on the famous Rocky Mountaineer to Vancouver and Victoria – wow what a trip!


Bryce – Zion – Las Vegas

We left Bryce Canyon City after a great buffet breakfast at the Best Western Plus Bryce Canyon Grand and after topping up with gas headed west along highway 12.  The short journey to Zion National Park meant we could take it easy and marvel at the scenery.  As we joined highway 9 at Mt Carmel Junction I remembered that this was where many of the great western TV series of the 50’s and 60’s were filmed.  The Lone Ranger, Champion the Wonder Horse and many others used the stunning scenery of southern Utah as their backdrop.  I blame many of these classic western series for getting me hooked on the Wild West from an early age.
