That night, you will enjoy an exclusive tour in a stretch limousine, where you can stop at some of the strip's top night spots. Later, embark on a private helicopter tour, complete with Champagne, for a fantastic display of the iconic skyline before enjoying dinner overlooking the famed Bellagio fountains.

Moab is a fantastic base from which to explore the iconic Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. The former boasts the world’s highest concentrations of sandstone arches, including the world-recognised Delicate Arch, which stands at sixty-foot and appears on license plates and stamps across the state. The latter, Canyonlands National Park, was only designated as a National Park in 1964, leaving the terrain mostly undisturbed until just over fifty years ago. With sweeping vistas from the vantage points of Island in the Sky and The Needles, there is a wonderful array of views to behold on hiking trails.

Monument Valley, United States of America

Instantly recognisable by anyone who loves classic cowboy films, Monument Valley is a symbol of the American ‘Wild West’.
