New holidays in new brochure?
Post: #11
I haven't gone with JY in nearly 2 years as there isn't a great choice of long haul trips any more, just the same trips every year which are getting very expensive. I've also nearly run out of places to go. Maybe going down a star on the hotels would reduce the prices of some holidays.

To add to what Bob says my sory is similar, I did Golden West in 2010 (awsome holiday you'll love it) and the trip to the Grand Canyon was great but in hindsight a waste of money.
Why ? Not that it wasn't worhwhile but the following year I did the "Parks & Canyons" which goes from Phoenix to Vegas and we visited the GC on route and had option of the helicopter again.
Also visited the GC on Route 66 last year although thats only a photo chance as you don't have time to do much else.
Also like Bob (we'll meet one of these trips) I'm doing National Parks, Mount Rushmore, LBH this year and we stay over at the Canyon which is great, give me chance to walk so far into the canyon along the mule trail i hope (would imagine others that have not been will do the helicopter so will have time to fill in).

Vegas is a fair distance west of the GC hence the expensive flight to get there and too far out the way for the Golden west hol to visit on route as you arrive in Vegas from he opposite direction, much better to visit on a holiday that actually goes to the canyon.

Hello Mick,

Thanks for your advice. I think if I want to get good value out of the Grand Canyon I'll have to look at the National Parks holiday - I would also like to see Mount Rushmore. So, I think I'll have to get saving!

Thanks again.

Kind regards

Ann

If you decide to do the Golden West, don't worry about the flight to the rim of the Grand Canyon. The small plane was very smooth and I really enjoyed it - just a short flight and if you're in a window seat, you'll get great views along the gorge and over the Hoover Dam and I got a wonderful sunrise shot as well. No need to be nervous!

All the best,

Bob

Thanks Bob, I've got a really good feeling about the holiday. Thanks also for your reassurance about the flight.

Kind regards

Ann

I do wish you would all stop going on about all the wonderful holidays that you have been on!!! I would love to go to some of them, especially the States but there are no such holidays in the school summer holidays - grrrrrrr!!!! Many years ago, I went with JY to the Canadian Rockies with the Alaska add on cruise - what an amazing experience! I was planning to book another long haul holiday the following year but that was the year JY pulled the plug on them all.

Hi Shyanne

Hopefully JY will listen to you and others who can only travel during school holidays and offer some nice long haul destinations. I personally avoid school holidays!

Regards

Jaya

All of the tours in the upcoming brochure are existing tours with 2014 dates with the exception of the Christmas breaks and the Costa Rica & Nicaragua tour.

If you could have your choice of destination - where would you like to go? Hopefully you've seen that our product team do monitor the forum and where possible create tours based on our members' feedback.

Kindest regards

Julia

I have done one trip to Route 66 with JY but I'm now planning on booking golden west and New Orleans in 2014. It would be nice to see Gracelands in a future brochure kind regards
