Highlights

  • Admire the immensity of the Grand Canyon
  • Discover the striking rock formations of Joshua Tree National Park
  • Soak up the celebrity vibe in Hollywood and Beverly Hills
  • Scuttle the steep streets in the city of San Francisco
  • Be awed by the magnificence of Yosemite Falls

Itinerary

Arrive early to soak up the views of San Francisco's scenic bay and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Why not take a trip out to Alcatraz, indulge in a clam chowder at Fisherman's Wharf or hike up one of the city's famously steep streets.
With jaw-dropping beauty at every turn, delight in drenching waterfalls, looming granite cliffs and sparkling lakes at the Yosemite National Park.
Journey through the Central Valley to Bakersfield.
Head through Death Valley - one of the hottest deserts on the planet - on the way to the capital of the gambling world, Las Vegas - known as 'Sin City'. Take a limo tour along the legendary Strip before enjoying free time to attend a wealth of stage shows, bountiful buffet or one of the many whacky casinos.
Awe-inspiring, breathtaking, magnificent - the Grand Canyon is all of these and more. Walk along the rim and peer down into the depths of this vast natural wonder, or perhaps take an optional helicopter flight for a different perspective.
Home to the quirky Joshua trees, this national park is known for its spectacular desert scenery, striking rock formations and unique flora.
This trip ends in Los Angeles, amid the flashy excess of Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Perhaps stick around a bit longer and explore the sights of this famous city, taking a stroll along Venice Beach or eating some hot French fries on Santa Monica Pier.
