0

With things picking up nicely on the travel front, now that summer is well and truly here, isango! has introduced some really interesting activities and tours to make your vacation outstanding.

Thames Jetboat Cruise

Thames Jet

When you are done with seeing the sights around London you can get your rush on by getting on a Jetboat and zooming on the Thames a la James Bond.  Up tempo music blasting out of the sound system will accompany you as the boat skims across the Thames.  You will get a unique perspective of London as you roar past The Shard, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.  At 35 knots not only will your hair be flying, so will your heart.

Oxford & Downton Abbey Tour

Downton Abbey1

A visit to Oxford, the world’s second oldest university is a must.  The “city of dreaming spires” is famed for its academic excellence.  Oxford is also celebrated for the architecture of its beautiful buildings.  There are examples of every English architectural period dating back to the Saxons.

The added flavour to this tour is a trip to a Downton Abbey filming locations.  For Downton Abbey addicts, there is an exciting visit to the village and the elegant home used as the fictional Grantham House that features so prominently in the Christmas Special of the TV-series.

Barcelona On A Segway

Barcelona Segway

You are going to love this!  Barcelona is a large city and many of its iconic sites are quite spread out.  So to save you from tramping around in the warm Barcelona sun, now you can zip around on a soundless, smooth-running Segway.  The tour is designed for small intimate groups.  You can visit some of the instantly recognizable landmarks of this wonderful city.  Some highlights of the tour include the Arc Triomf, Passeig Luis Companys, the wonderful park and zoo of La Ciutadella Parc and the statue of Christopher Columbus.

Dubai Aquarium And Underwater Zoo

In the heart of Dubai, you will find a fascinating and interactive underwater world.  The Dubai Aquarium is located in the centre of Dubai Mall, the world’s largest.  There is a 48 metre long tunnel that runs under the aquarium and gives you a view of the wonderful aquatic creatures swimming all around.

The Underwater Zoo is marvelously designed so that you can interact with creatures as diverse as Otters and Penguins.  You can also observe, up close, such exotic ones as Piranhas and Scorpions and Giant Camel Spiders.  The zoo is divided into different ecological zones that give you a perspective of the creatures’ habitats.

The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil – Vegas Show

The Mirage, Las Vegas has custom built a theater for this show.  The unforgettable music and lyrics of the legendary Fab Four is combined by the incredible acrobatics and interpretive freestyle dance of the Cirque du Soleil.  Using over 6,000 speakers and 24 digital projectors, the show is a powerful experience and entertainment at its very best.

Great Places To Celebrate The 4th Of July

0

With Independence Day in the United States coming up this Friday, most Americans have been excitedly making preparations for the holiday and how they’ll spend the weekend that follows. After all, the Fourth of July is one of the most beloved holidays in the US. If you’ll be in the United States for the holiday, then you have already taken the first step in assuring yourself that a fantastic weekend is ahead of you. Let us help you take the next few! We’ve made it possible for you to visit four of the most unforgettable places this weekend at lower prices.

New York City

Picture it: walking through the famed streets of the most popular city in the United States, riding above skyscrapers and climbing atop the Empire State Building giving you a view of the city like none other, and taking a trip along the Hudson River as the sun goes down and fireworks come out. This is what New York City has to offer to you this weekend!

New York

The NY Sky Ride and Empire State Building both provide unbeatable views of New York City. It’s perfect for a day spent walking around the city and for getting to know the city from a different perspective. Another must-see in NYC is the Hudson River. But don’t just see it from a bridge; experience it on its waters on the Spirit of New York Dinner Cruise. There is no experience like watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July from the middle of the Hudson River while feasting on a delectable meal and dancing along to the music of the live band onboard.

Niagara Falls

Though admittedly not located in the United States, Niagara Falls is a magnificent and adventurous way to spend any weekend. And it’s only a short 650 km from New York, the equivalent of a few hours trip.  Spend three days in Niagara Falls and Toronto this coming weekend, where you can ride on the famed Maid of the Mist boat ride, experience the Falls in all of their majesty, sight-see through Toronto, and view the natural beauty of the 1000 Islands on your trip back to New York.

For the adventurer in you, Niagara Falls is where you need to be this Fourth of July weekend!

Las Vegas

Las Vegas

Another great way to spend your holiday weekend is by exploring and taking in the landscapes that cover the Southwestern United States from the nearby city Las Vegas. Though Vegas is typically known for its attractions inside the city itself, the natural attractions located just a short trip away from the city will allow you to see the United States in a light you probably never have before. Take a day trip from Las Vegas and be amazed by the grandiose of the southern rim of the Grand Canyon as well as the beautiful paths running through Zion National Park. Both are true American treasures.

Washington D.C.

The nation’s capital! Where else could anyone who wanted a true American Fourth of July experience endeavor to spend their weekend?

Experience the fireworks on the Fourth of July aboard the Washington Odyssey Dinner Cruise where you will eat a fabulous meal, listen to a remarkable band play, and be surrounded by a wonderful group of people and a beautiful sky full of lights. Later on that weekend you can discover all the landmarks and history that the US capital has in store for you.
Prepare yourself for a weekend you won’t forget, filled with brilliant fireworks, fantastic celebrations, and experiences that you’ll be sharing with others for years to come!

The Wrangler National Rodeo Finals will descend upon Las Vegas this December, as the best cowboys from across the globe compete for their share in $5 million worth of prize money – not to mention the odd golden belt buckle or two as well.

From December 4th – 13th the Thomas & Mack Centre will see thousands of avid spectators gather to watch 120 of the world”s best – and bravest – compete in what some call the ”Superbowl of Rodeos”.

The event has taken place since 1959, having been in Oklahoma for decades before switching to its current home in Las Vegas.

Anyone who has taken in a rodeo competition says that it is like a slice of true Americana, and slices don’t come much bigger than the national finals, which promise to be bigger and better than ever.

Top riders like three-time All-Around Best Cowboy winner Trevor Brazille can earn hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in prize money, not to mention extra income from sponsorship and appearances.

Active and Adventure – Air Activities – Enjoy an exhilarating helicopter ride over New York or a serene hot air balloon ride over the Australian outback.ADNFCR-1652-ID-18825174-ADNFCR
