Go behind the scenes in Pasadena to experience the Rose Parade, 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 favours, and champagne. The highlight of this Tournament of Roses tour is the Rose 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 a visit to 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. Enjoy a farewell dinner on board the RMS Queen Mary, a special adventure Globus offers to celebrate this Rose Parade tour!
In addition to enjoying a sightseeing tour of Los Angeles, you’ll also visit the Getty Museum to see its extensive art collection and the Ronald Regan Presidential Library, celebrating the life of the 40th U.S. President—another unique experience arranged by Globus.
