Valuable vacation time should not be wasted traveling, which is why Mauiva AirCruise’s guided group tours use private planes to whisk travelers between destinations. With this deal, multicity vacations begin with a flight from either New York City (for the All-American East Experience package) or Los Angeles (for the Western Wonder Experience package). Upon landing, a motorcoach escorts passengers to a Hilton, a Hyatt, or another four-star hotel, where guests’ bags await in the room. The next day, a certified travel host leads sightseeing tours and other activities, such as wine tastings and scenic drives, before the group heads to the next city. Along with 11 meals, the six-day All-American East Experience package visits 20 eastern attractions, including Niagara Falls, Toronto, Lancaster, Harrisburg, Washington, DC, Mount Vernon, Arlington, and more. Beginning at Niagara Falls, the travel host arranges rides on the iconic Maid of the Mist boat tour, which drifts right into the basin of the 2,600-foot tall Canadian Horseshoe Falls. A short bus ride takes the group to Toronto for a view of the city’s skyline from the CN Tower, followed by a wine tasting at Caroline Cellars Winery in nearby Niagara-on-the-Lake. Back in America, the tours stops by Hershey, home to Hershey's Chocolate World, where visitors make custom candy bars and learn the history of the chocolatiers before heading to the nation's capitol to see its numerous historical sites and Jimmy Carter–brand sausage emporiums.

The tour also sets time aside for sightseeing at the Golden Gate Bridge and the many herbal shops, temples, and pagoda-topped buildings of San Francisco's Chinatown.
