Our routes have been carefully chosen to include the best overnight stops, highlights and included experiences, with plenty of optional activities to choose from. No two Trek trips are the same, with stops at some of your tour leader's favourite places and occasional changes to the itinerary, so get ready for one awesome adventure!

As this tour departs at 07:30 hrs we recommend that you book pre tour accommodation. Please request further details at time of booking.

Also departs from San Francisco

The City of Angels greets you in the only way it knows how - this city is 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 nearby Laughlin.

Get your hands on some pure Americana in Seligman, a roadside town on the famous Route 66. Feeling thirsty? Head to the Snow Cap Diner for a frosty shake before heading in search of one of the 'Seven Natural Wonders of the World', the Grand Canyon. You won't be able to miss it. As soon as you lay your eyes upon the vast canyon, you'll be speechless. From sunset to sunrise this place will leave you inspired and wanting to see more of this desert wonderland. Take to the sky and witness the Grand Canyon's monumental red-and-gold formations from up high on an optional helicopter flight. Hike deep into the canyon on the Bright Angel Trail or check out the aptly named 'Ooh Aah Point' on the South Kaibab Trail.

After a 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 an included super-stretch limousine tour or ease the pain with one of the famous all-you-can-eat buffets. Hit the roller coaster, check out a show or take an evening flight down The Strip - or perhaps you could get yourself hitched by Elvis Presley (don't worry, it's not legally binding, unless you want it to be!).

From the desert to the mighty Giant Sequoias, your next stop is the incredible Yosemite National Park. There's some memorable eye candy round here, from huge granite cliffs to the chiselled landmarks of El Capitan and Half Dome to the highest waterfalls in North America, and don't forget the wildlife, from bear to coyotes. 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, it's bloomin' gorgeous!

It won't take you long to see why San Francisco is everyone's favourite place on the West Coast. Take to the hilly streets on a city tour and walk across the famous Golden Gate Bridge to admire awesome views of Alcatraz and the city from afar. Make sure you visit the Haight-Ashbury neighbourhood which inspired some awesome music and make sure you embrace those hippy vibes. The waterfront is the place to be if you want to sample some delicious clam chowder and meet the resident sea lions at Pier 39. There is so much to see and do here it's always worth staying a few days after the tour finishes to make the most of the 'City by the Bay'.

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.

The most unforgettable trip with awesome people

I knew I'd have a great time on this trip, but hadn't quite realised just how amazing it would be. I keep thinking I got lucky as I was with a really great group of people... but then I suspect people on other trips probably feel the same way too. I went as a single traveller, but never once...
