Day 1: Los Angeles & Lake Havasu

Tour Hollywood’s highlights, including the famous Hollywood sign, Rodeo Drive and people watching at the eclectic Venice Beach. Then it’s off to the Mojave Desert, stopping by Colorado River for some stunning red rock landscapes – don’t forget your camera! Next is Lake Havasu for a refreshing dip and your first night under the stars.

Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Dinner included

Day 2: Grand Canyon National Park

Cross vast desert landscapes to the grandest canyon of them all, the Grand Canyon. Carved out over millions of years by the Colorado River, it’s regarded as one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, and is a sight to behold. You can hike the spectacular South Rim Trail at sunset then kick back and enjoy a good old American BBQ. You will never forget the first time you cast your eyes upon the sheer size, and colours of the mighty Grand Canyon!

Accommodation: Camping included | Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner included

Day 3: Grand Canyon National Park & Las Vegas

Greet the rising sun for a last view of the Grand Canyon on an optional (and highly recommended) helicopter flight before stepping back in time on the legendary historic Route 66. Stop at Hoover Dam with the chance to walk across before arriving in the neon metropolis of Las Vegas with a stop to the iconic Las Vegas sign, it’s time for our included limousine tour and a big night out. Las Vegas is known as the city of sin, but it can be what you want. If clubs and bars are your thing there are plenty, but you can also opt for a flight down the Strip at night, take in a show or see the light show at the Fremont Street Experience.

Accommodation: Hotel included | Meals: Breakfast & lunch included

Day 4: Las Vegas & Los Angeles

Enjoy a much needed lie-in or take the chance to hit Vegas’ famous malls before turning up the road trip anthems and heading back to the ‘City of Angeles’, Los Angeles.
