    have been to X and came back

    Hi,

    I'd like to ask if it is OK to say,

    "They have been to the USA and came back."
    "They have been to the USa and came back last week."

    I feel very confused.

    Thanks.

    Re: have been to X and came back

    They went to the USA and came back.
    They have been to the USA and [they] have come back.

    They have been on holiday to the USA; they came back last week.
