Florida – Tours

Tours in Florida

A subtropical mosaic of mangrove forests, turquoise waters, powdery beaches and world-renowned theme parks, Florida is much more than its iconic Walt Disney World Resort.

Beach lovers will rejoice at what’s on offer here; from the serene and inviting warm waters of peaceful Clearwater to the sublime sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico, sink into dazzling white sands across Florida’s expansive coastline, voted among the best of the USA’s beaches and celebrated the world over. Our Orlando and St Pete/Clearwater tour combines the laid-back lifestyle of St Pete and its artisan markets with the high-end retail therapy, exceptional fine dining, vibrant nightlife and theme park thrills of Orlando.

Alternatively, if you want to experience it all, our Orlando, Miami and the Florida Keys tour takes you from the playground of Orlando’s thrilling Universal Orlando Resort™ and the fascinating Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, to opulent Miami Beach and the pastel shades of the Architectural District’s 1930s art-deco hotels. Journey down to glamourous palm-fringed South Beach and sip sundowners at its neon-drenched bars, before escaping the bustle of the shimmering city skyline at the tranquil Virginia Key.

Finally, you’ll venture down to the tropical paradise islands of the Florida Keys. A diving haven, the Keys are home to the world’s third-largest coral reef, teeming with yellow-tail snappers, parrotfish, hogfish, barracuda and the graceful loggerhead sea turtle. Journey through thriving mangrove forests as you glide along its maze of waterways, the air alive with the warbling of cormorants and honking of the mangrove cuckoos.

“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.
