Tour Itinerary

As this tour departs at 0730 we recommend that you book pre-tour accommodation. Please request hotel details at the time of booking.

  • Day 1: Los Angeles & Colorado River

    The City of Angels greets you in the only way it knows how - sprawling, celebrity-driven and simply electric. Take a tour of Hollywood and the Walk of Fame whilst keeping your eyes peeled for some resident A-Listers. Next you'll head out east to the Colorado River where you have the chance to swim and take in the stunning views before overnighting in Laughlin where you can try your luck on the tables!
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 2: Grand Canyon National Park

    Head east to the quirky little town of Seligman which is on one of the original sections of the Route 66, and you'll see pop-art memorabilia everywhere! Grab a frosty shake at the Snow Cap Diner before heading in search of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon. Take to the sky and witness the Grand Canyon's monumental red-and-gold formations from up high. Hike deep into the canyon on the Bright Angel Trail or check out the aptly named `Ooh Aah Point' on the South Kaibab Trail. Whatever view of the Grand Canyon you have you will never forget that moment you first lay your eyes on this incredible place.
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 3-4: Las Vegas

    After a beautiful sunrise and well-spent morning at the Grand Canyon you head to the neon city of Las Vegas! Time to put those lucky numbers to the test, not to mention your energy levels in this 24/7 party town. A-list stars swarm here, although breaking the bank may be easier than blagging your way into their swanky celebrity hangouts. If that fails you can still cruise The Strip in a super-stretch limousine (included in 2015 departures) or ease the pain in one of the famous all-you-can-eat buffets. But Vegas isn't all about gambling and clubs, why not check out a show, take an evening flight down The Strip or get yourself hitched by Elvis Presley (don't worry it's not legally binding, unless you want it to be).
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 5-6: Yosemite National Park

    From the desert to the mighty Giant Sequoias your next stop is Yosemite National Park. Huge granite cliffs make for some memorable eye candy round here, from the chiselled landmarks of El Capitan and Half Dome to the highest waterfalls in North America. With some of the best hiking trails the country has to offer and a picture perfect sunset, you'll soon see why Yosemite National Park is a favourite with tourists and locals alike.
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 7: San Francisco

    It won't take you long to see why San Francisco is everyone's favourite city on a city walking tour including the chance to walk across the famous Golden Gate Bridge. Make sure you visit Haight-Ashbury which inspired some of the best music to date during the hippie movement before heading down to the waterfront to sample some delicious clam chowder. There is so much to see and do here it is always worth staying a few days after the tour finishes to make the most of San Francisco.

    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.
