    Hiya -

    Would there be anyone else from here going at the same time? It would be fun to chat before!

    From reading the thread title alone, I got a mental picture of someone riding a giant green tortoise through the streets of New York :cool:

    I've done the Northern Crossing with Green Tortoise, its was amazing
    Its budget travel, we slept on the moving bus, then most mornings woke up in a new place.

    Have an amazing time.

    Hi there, I'm looking to do the same thing. I just went on the website and it's all in dollars? Would this be the final price or is there additional cost of travelling to the US?

    Also which trip are you doing?

    Not necessarily :P Remember Aesop's fable, about the hare and the tortoise?

    Hiya - hope you join me!

    The flight from UK to US is additional. I'm doing the Southern Dream. http://www.greentortoise.com/adventu...ern.dream.html

    Also am thinking of adding on a Yosemite trip and the return to NY via their Northern Crossing.

    If you type into google "dollar to euro convert" or "dollar to GBP (British Pound Sterling) convert" and put in the dollar amount, you'll see how much it is. Fortunately dollars are worth less so it's better value!

    Sorry, my last post had the conversion backward. I edited it and it's fixed now
