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

    After a brief fling with San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, hit the old prospectors' trails to the east on day one. They'll take you smack bang into Yosemite National Park. Who says granite isn't as pretty as gold? It makes for 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 sunset, a chilled drink or two and you've got one sure-fire ice-breaker - though the chances are you're all best of buddies already. Yosemite is also home to some of the oldest trees in the world, the mighty Giant Sequoia which towers above the park.
    Accommodation: Budget lodging 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.or ease the pain in one of the famous all-you-can-eat buffet. But Vegas isn't all just about gambling and clubs, why not check out a show, take an evening flight down the Strip or head to the original old Vegas for the Freemont Street Experience.
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 5: Grand Canyon National Park

    Leaving Las Vegas, strike out across the desert in search of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon. Take to the wing 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 settle for being a mere a mile up from the Colorado River bed: the hiking paths along its vast rim are unforgettable, particularly at sunset.
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 6: Colorado River

    After a beautiful sunrise and well spent morning at the Grand Canyon, head west 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 to the Colorado River where you have the chance to swim and take in stunning views before overnighting in Laughlin where you can try your luck on the tables!
    Accommodation: Budget lodging included

  • Day 7: Los Angeles

    Following the sun back to the Pacific we arrive in the sprawling City of Angels (and A-listers) and tour Hollywood and the Walk of Fame and a spot of people watching.

    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.
