Hey there

My partner and I have also booked to go on Stars & Stripes Nov 15th - 27th. We’re both coming from Auckland, NZ and are very excited! Looks like us kiwis are going to crash the ozzie party lol :slight_smile:


Awesome! It seems like couples mainly :slight_smile: What kind of age group are you guys?


My partner and I will be there. Kiwis living in AU. Soo excited!!


Hey Team,

I have also booked this tour with 3 of my friends. We are kiwis living in Brisbane. We plan on going to 3 NBA whist we are travelling, is anyone else going to any sports events? Concerts? We are aged 27 27 29 34, Cant wait super excited…


Hey Chloe, we haven’t booked any sports events but we may do. I’m 31 & hubby is 35. :blush:


Hi guys, im a solo traveller from Australia. Iam on this tour. What kind of sporting games aee you going to? I would love to join you guys for one of them? Have you guys brought tickets? Is any one keen to do alcatraz? S


Hi Sar,
I haven’t booked any sporting events yet I’ll have to check what is on while we are there. We have booked Alcatraz for the 25th day after the tour finishes in San Fran as we aren’t doing the NY portion. Seems like a good mix of people so far. :slight_smile:


Hey Guys, anyone thinking about seeing a show while we are in Vegas?


Hey guys, a lot of sports games conflicted with our schedule for this trip but still so excited! What days did you book Alcatraz? My partner Geoff is 27 and I’m 26, first time to USA and excited. Looks like mostly couples :slight_smile:


Hey Guys, I’ve created a FB group for our departure. Feel free to join & add anyone else that is travelling on this tour.

Hey Chloe, which NBA games would you recommend around our trip dates? As we’ve only seen 3 games in the entire trip which wouldn’t conflict :frowning:


Hi Lohrah, my friends and I have decided we are going to see the Clippers vs Nets on Monday 14th Nov, day before tour starts. We are still contemplating on the Warriors Vs Lakers game on Wednesday 23rd of Nov, as we have the Catamaran Cruise on that night with the tour group. The last game is is New York, Knicks Vs OKC, on Monday 28th as we are staying in NYC for a few days after the tour.


Hey guys! Solo traveller from Sydney :slight_smile: so excited for this trip! Would be keen to go to any of the sports games if people are interested!


Hi steph,

Im a solo traveller as well whos booked on this trip. I was thinking about going to see the a basketball game on the 25th. What else are u looking at doing on this trip? Are u going to see a show in vegas or new york? Are u going to visit disney or visit alcatraz? Sarah


Hey guys I’m coming on the trip travelling with chloe and 2 others we are super excited as well. We are going on the Alcatraz tour if anyone wants to come lol we have booked already but I think we may have to change the day as it may conflict.
Whilst on tour we are planning on going to universal on the Wednesday 16th if anyone wants to come with us. We are staying a few days early in LA a few days later in NY and extra days in LA on our way back so our holiday is jam packed which is exciting.


Hey Alanah,

We have booked universal for the 16th as well :blush: Have you booked transfers from the hotel to & from? We have booked them with Starline Tours as I thought it was just easier than dealing with trying to navigate LA.
