Travelling to different countries is exciting and something to look forward to. Before visiting a country it is always good to research upon the country, the culture, dos and don’ts, tourist spots and things or places recommended by locals or people who have visited the country. The US is a big country with many tourist attractions and places which you should definitely go to. Hence we have written here about everything you need to know for a tour in the US.

24/7 open:

One great thing about a tour in the US is that majority of the commercial or public places are open 24/7. You can eat at good places or find good entertainment at any time of the day and night. It might be different when you visit smaller cities.

The country is big:

The US is a vast country spreading out to3.8 million square miles. People own big houses and vehicles. When you order in the majority of the eating joints, don’t be surprised to see large portions. People also like their personal spaces hence you should respect it. You’ll also find regional differences depending on the state you visit. These differences can be in their accent, food, lifestyle and even laws.


Healthcare is expensive in the states, and you should be careful about your health when you do visit. If you do not have good insurance, then the expenses are high. Medicines are also difficult to get without prescriptions.

National parks:

The US has many huge national parks in almost every state. The parks have been maintained well and are open to anyone for a visit. These parks are one of the things the US can boast about, and visitors should definitely visit.

Public transport:

Another thing you should definitely know about a US tour is that public transports are not 100% reliable. The size of the country limits public transports in many ways. Hence all Americans own at least one car for transportation. It is advisable that you rent a car if you do visit. This does not mean that there are no public transports. There are transports which function well in big cities, but they are limited.

Emergency services:

Even though we don’t live in the US a lot of us know about the 911 emergency service in the states. The service is outstanding and responsive. In the case of an emergency do contact 911 immediately. You’ll get help soon.


Tipping is something that is regarded important and necessary in the US. We might be used to not tipping or tipping at low rates in the restaurants of our own countries since it is voluntary. However, it is an indirect or unofficial norm that you tip 15% or above. This is because the wages are low hence the major portion of salary comes from tips.

Modes of payment:

In most of the places, cards are the preferred mode of payment.Some places don’t even accept cash.
