Tours in Florida

Tours of Florida take you to world famous theme parks, glorious golden beaches, glamorous cities and mangrove forests full of wildlife. Whether you’re a beach lover, thrill seeker, shopper or a mixture of all three, we’ll help you plan your ideal Florida tour.

Pair your Florida tour with a journey around the powdery sands and crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Our Seven Seas Voyager Caribbean Cruise begins with four days in Miami, where you can shop till you drop, spend long lazy days people watching and sipping cocktails at a beach bar or explore the city. Take in the famous art deco architecture, try delicious cuisine with both southern US and Mexican influences and make the most of the vast malls.

Combine a tour in Florida with other great southern states, including Texas, South Carolina and Georgia on our Gone with the Wind Tour. Experience the charm of the USA’s south, as well as its famous hospitality. In Tallahassee you’ll find a small town charism, with a soft natural setting right on your doorstep. Wander through quiet, oak lined streets and enjoy the combination of traditional architecture with low rise, modern buildings in one of the USA’s most peaceful state capitals.

Experience the long history of music and some incredible chances to immerse yourself in the culture of the USA’s south on our Rhythms of the South Self Drive. Enjoy the freedom and comfort of the USA’s wide open road and ever changing landscapes, as well as the expertise of our Destination Specialists on your Florida road trip. In Pensacola you’ll find warm blue waters and golden sands on the Gulf of Mexico. Drive to Tallahassee, stopping in small fishing towns before enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of the city.

“Key West is my absolute favourite place in Florida. If you’re going there, make the drive part of the adventure because it’s a stunning 150 miles.”

“There are a million things to do in Florida. I love the Kennedy Space Station where my imagination runs riot at possibilities for new destinations.” 

Christie

Destination Executive

“If you feel like retreating from the lively streets of South Beach, head to the Everglades National Park and enjoy a whole host of activities such as off-trail hikes through the marshlands, bicycling along scenic Shark Valley, or spotting alligators and roseate spoonbills by canoe.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Thousands of visitors go to the Everglades every year without incident. The authorities recommend sticking to the paths and going no nearer than five metres to a wild animal. They also suggest taking plenty of water and protection from the very hot sun.

North and Central Florida is subtropical, humid and with a rainy season from May to October. The south of Florida is tropical and, therefore, usually warm and pleasant in the winter months.

Kennedy Space Center is roughly an hour away from central Orlando and is easily accessible by several highways and toll roads. Depending on the time of day and location of your accommodation, it is advised you head out early to avoid traffic. With so much to see and do, many visitors find that, despite being there a full day, they don’t come close to seeing everything the Kennedy Space Center has to offer.

Nicknamed 'The Sunshine State', Florida really is a playground in the sun. Relax on the white sand beaches and have fun at the amusement parks, take a dip into the natural world, and find chic shops and restaurants in the towns and cities – you’ll find lots more to put in your treasure trove of memories.
