Globus Tournament of Roses(AX)

5 Day Tour from Los Angeles to Los Angeles 
You can leave your rose-colored glasses at home when you pack your bags for America’s favorite New Year’s celebration. Everything is coming up roses on this special tour of Los Angeles, starting with a pre-countdown gala complete with beats, bites, and bubbly. The celebration continues New Year’s Day at Pasadena’s famous Tournament of Roses Parade where you’ll enjoy reserved grandstand seats, an official commemorative program, and prime viewing of the spectacular floral floats and marching bands from around the world. Truly stop and smell the roses at the post-parade viewing area where you can get up close to the fragrant, fantastic creations. Other quintessentially Californian experiences include guided sightseeing in Los Angeles, a visit to the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, a special New Year’s Day lunch, and a farewell dinner floating on board the RMS Queen Mary.

Itinerary (2024)

 Welcome to California! At 6 pm, meet your Tour Director and travel companions for a welcome drink.
 The City of Angels Depart on a Los Angeles city tour that takes you from Olvera Street, the oldest thoroughfare in the city, to Hollywood. Then visit the [LF] Ronald Reagan Presidential Library. This evening, join your travel companions at an exclusive Globus New Year’s Eve dinner & dance gala, complete with hats, party favors, live music, and of course, champagne! (B,D)

LEGENDARY LIVES Visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in a hilltop setting in Simi Valley and final resting place of the 40th U.S. President and First Lady. Here, the legacy of the President is on display in extraordinary and educational exhibits. Enjoy the impressive sights of Air Force One, Marine One, a replica of the Oval Office and a piece of the fallen Berlin Wall.
 Everything’s Coming Up Roses! Happy New Year! Get ready for one of the world’s most popular parades—you’ll see it live! Globus has specially selected reserved grandstand seating only minutes from the beginning of the parade route for prime viewing. After the parade, return to the hotel for a New Year’s Day lunch. Later, for those who wish, join a trip to Santa Monica for a walk on the famous pier, shopping on the 3rd Street Promenade, or relaxing on the beach. (B,L)

SPECIAL EVENT See the spectacular floats made entirely of flowers (plants, and seeds). Marching bands from around the world, horse-guards, and celebrities parade through the lovely town of Pasadena. You’ll also receive the official parade program to take home as a special souvenir.
 The Ultimate Flower Arrangement This morning, view the individual floats in the Post-parade float viewing area. For many, this is the highlight of the entire event, as you can get up close to these amazing and intricately designed floats – made entirely of flowers, plants, and seeds. Take the opportunity for an amazing photo opportunity. Enjoy a very special farewell dinner this evening on board the legendary British ocean liner, the [LF] RMS Queen Mary. (B,D)

LEGENDARY LIVES Dine in style with a farewell dinner aboard the RMS Queen Mary. Step aboard the luxurious “Grey Ghost,” which carried British royalty, film stars, and world dignitaries across the Atlantic Ocean in the 30’s, and 15,000 allied troops during WWII, before ultimately resting in Long Beach as a living landmark hotel, and historical attraction.
