Day 1-2: San Francisco & Yosemite National Park

Set off, bidding San Francisco a reluctant farewell, to head east through California’s gold country, where in 1848, the finding of a single nugget triggered a stampede of gold-seekers known as the 49’ers. Then a scenic drive into the Yosemite National Park region and a chance to hike or bike, through the extraordinary landscape of glacier-carved granite monoliths and spectacular waterfalls. Once inside Yosemite, keep your eyes peeled for black bears. Coyote roam freely as well and when the sun goes down, their howling often echoes amidst pines and sequoias. Admit it, this is what clicks the spirit of the great outdoors up a notch or two.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 3-4: Las Vegas

Next, Las Vegas – the greatest show on earth! The Strip, the shows, the casinos, the clubs; Sin City’s glitziest and brashest spots are sure to impress as you cruise the Las Vegas Boulevard on an included limo ride! Hop onto one of the world’s highest thrill rides at Vegas’ Stratosphere and it won’t just be your head that’s spinning.And if that’s not enough, take a helicopter flight down The Strip or just gamble the night.

Accommodation: Hotels included in tour price

Day 5: Grand Canyon National Park

We then make our way towards America’s premier National Park, and find out why it is called the Grand Canyon. The grandest canyon of them all can challenge your head for heights too. Keep your feet firmly on the ground or swoop above it all on an optional helicopter flight. One thing’s for sure though, this place looks incredible from any angle, especially walking along the rim at sunset. You will never forget your first glimpse of the Canyon as you realise the immense vastness and extreme beauty of it all.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 6: Colorado River

Travel along the original Route 66 stopping at the quirky town of Seligman. Prepare to be wowed by vast swathes of Arizona’s cactus studded desert and take a refreshing dip in the Colorado River. Enjoy one last blast on your final evening together, before striking out for the Californian coast.

Accommodation: Camping included

Day 7: Los Angeles

Fresh from nature’s most dramatic sets, you’ve stepped right into Movieland itself, we’ll tour Los Angeles’ famous Hollywood Boulevard and then you can star in your own snapshots in and around the city’s iconic sights.


This tour ends at approximately 17:00 hrs. We can book you post-tour accommodation at our gateway hotel if required. If you are planning to fly tonight, please do not book a flight that departs before 21:00 hrs.
