  • Day 1-2: San Francisco & Yosemite National Park Area

    After a brief fling with San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, hit the old prospectors' trail to the east and let it take you smack bang into 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. Throw in the colours of a picture perfect sunset, plus a chilled drink or two and you've got one awesome first day in California with your new Trek buddies. Yosemite is also home to some of the oldest trees in the world, the mighty Giant Sequoia which tower above the park, and let's not forget the unbelievable array of incredible wildlife, from bears to coyotes.
    Accommodation: Hostel nights included

  • Day 3-4: 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) 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: Hotel nights included

  • Day 5: Grand Canyon National Park

    Leaving Las Vegas behind (and hopefully not all your dollars), strike out across the desert in search of one of the `Seven Natural Wonders of the World', the Grand Canyon. As soon as you lay eyes on this super special place, you'll want to give Mother Nature a well-deserved high five! Take to the sky on an optional helicopter tour to 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. From sunset to sunrise the mighty Grand Canyon will leave you breathless!
    Accommodation: Hotel night included

  • Day 6: Colorado River

    After a beautiful sunrise head west to Seligman, the birthplace of the original Route 66. Here you'll find endless supplies of goodies, so why not grab some quirky pop-art and awesome road trip memorabilia for the folks back home! After all this exploring treat yourself to a super-super-thick shake at the Snow Cap Diner before heading to the Colorado River where you'll have the chance to swim and take in stunning views. Overnight in Laughlin where you'll have one last chance to try your luck on the tables!
    Accommodation: Hotel night included

  • Day 7: Los Angeles

    Following the sun back to the Pacific we arrive in the sprawling City of Angels. Have your camera at the ready as you tour Hollywood and the Walk of Fame. Make sure you keep an eye out for the A-Listers who call `La la land home'. Spend a few extra days in the vibrant and exciting cities and head down to Venice Beach, the ultimate people watching spot, or let an LA local introduce you to some of the city's famous historic bars on our `Stars and Bars' Urban Adventure.

    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.
