Tournament of Roses & San Diego Tour - Globus®

Tournament of Roses with San Diego (AX2)

7 Day Tour from Los Angeles to San Diego

2017 Tour Details

Go behind the scenes in Los Angeles to experience the Tournament of Roses, America's most famous New Year's celebration. Ring in the New Year with a festive dinner and dance gala complete with hats, live music, party favors, and champagne. The highlight of this Tournament of Roses tour is the Tournament of Roses Parade, where you’ll enjoy specially selected, reserved grandstand seats only minutes from the beginning of the parade route. You’ll even receive an official Parade Program as a souvenir! Another tour highlight is the post-parade viewing area, where you’ll get up close and personal with the parade and smell the roses and other flowers that adorn the floats.

You’ll also spend three nights in sunny San Diego. In both Los Angeles and San Diego, you’ll enjoy a sightseeing tour. In Los Angeles, you’ll visit the Ronald Regan Presidential Library, celebrating the life of the 40th U.S. President—a unique experience arranged by Globus. Another out-of-the-ordinary experience that Globus has included is a behind-the-scenes visit to the San Diego Zoo. Experience an up-close animal presentation and witness an animal-feeding opportunity.

This year, don’t just watch the Tournament of Roses parade on TV; see it live with prime viewing seats!

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

By the time I was 11 years old, I knew I wanted to be a Tour Director. My parents loved to share photos of their trips with me, and they would tell me, "You should do that; you'd be great at it!" They planted a seed that grew. On my 21st birthday, I traveled on a 12-country, 30-day tour of Europe. Six months later, I enrolled in tour directing school, and I've been in this career for over 30 years. My travel advice is simple: enjoy the experiences that are unique to the places you are visiting.
