Spanning across millions of square kilometres, it can be hard to know where to start your trip through North America! How good would it be if tours existed that were the perfect balance of structure and self-exploration.

Well, you’re in luck! Cosmos tours base their variety of coach tours on guidance, flexibility, freedom and fun and they have been bringing the world within reach for decades – nothing new there.

But what sets this unrivalled travel company apart from its competition is its focus on including unique experiences as part of its tours that perfectly complement all the free time you’ll get too.


Deluxe inclusions


Sure, there are the obvious inclusions, such as a comfortable night’s sleep, deluxe transportation with free Wi-Fi, included sightseeing and expert tour directors and local guides.

These inclusions obviously free travellers from the worry of getting from A to B while still maximising on key attractions and experiences.

But that’s only the start of it! Check out what other unique experiences you can expect on a Cosmos tour:


Visit the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum in the USA

Hewitt Canyon

We guarantee you’ve never been to a museum quite like this! Located in the high desert in Arizona, just west of Tucson, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum is a 98-acre zoo meets botanical garden meets art gallery meets natural history museum and aquarium.

It’s unique, world-renowned, one of the top 10 museums in the USA, and just one of the many awesome experiences included on the High Desert Discovery tour.

On your full free day in San Diego, consider visiting the city’s famous zoo or tuck into some amazingly fresh (and delicious) seafood at a local restaurant. Alternatively, in the Grand Canyon, why not spend your free day by taking an optional helicopter flight? The sky is the limit with Cosmos!


Climb aboard an open-air tram


Enter the World Center of Racing at Daytona International Speedway and coast around this iconic racetrack and experience the 31-degree banks for yourself. Then, climb atop the podium in Gatorade Victory Lane for a classic photo.

Included as a MUST SEE as part of Cosmos’ Exploring the Eastern Seaboard itinerary, you’ll also get a free full day in Savannah, Georgia on this tour, where you can roam the picturesque city’s cobblestone streets, admire its elegant homes, have a coffee in one of its quaint squares and walk under its moss-covered oaks and wisteria.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out the Forest Gump bench – it’s a classic photo op!


Take a ride on the Ice Explorer in Western Canada


Go on a thrilling adventure on the Columbia Icefield and find yourself immersed in one of the largest non-polar ice fields in the world.

Located in the Canadian Rockies, you’ll be able to drive through, walk on, feel and drink from the Athabasca Glacier before facing your fears and walking across a glass-floored Skywalk at the edge of a cliff – pretty cool, huh?!

This is just one of the MUST SEE inclusions you’ll get on the Western Canada & Inside Passage itinerary.

If you’d rather chill on your full free day in Banff, you’ll be happy to know you can spend it hiking, boating, horseback riding or fishing. As with all of Cosmos tours, you’ll have access to the Tour Director who can help assist with all your leisure time requests and activities.


So what are you waiting for? You’re in good hands with Cosmos, so book with confidence. And with tours starting at just $216 per day, your American dreams can come true.
