Package Description

Wild Western USA tour is just right for you. Stretching from San Diego to Seattle, the West Coast of the United States is home to artists of all kinds. Cities like Los Angeles offer peeks into the film industry, while San Francisco is a cradle of technological innovation. Naturally, no visit to Los Angeles is complete without viewing the iconic Hollywood sign. Although, taking a tour of a world-famous film studio or hitting the shops for a spot of fabulous shopping.

Frequently named as one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. It only take a single glance across the fabulous Golden Gate Bridge. Often shrouded in an eerie fog, to open your heart to this cosmopolitan, lively and effortlessly cool city. A buzzing atmosphere, countless attractions, and a laid-back attitude combine to make San Francisco a popular choice for a West Coast tour. Furthermore, with the family-friendly San Diego to the south and Anaheim – home of Disneyland – just outside Los Angeles, a Travelbag California tour is perfect for all ages too.

Day 1: Welcome to Los Angeles! Transfer to the hotel and day at leisure.

Day 2: Today drive south for two-and-a-half hours to San Diego, close to California’s border with Mexico. Sunny San Diego is a great city to get out and explore as it serves up year-round temperate weather. Perhaps relax along the golden beaches of Mission Bay or take a stroll through Balboa Park. In the evening, head down to the Old Town for some delicious Mexican fare. Afterwards, you might like to make your way to the historic Gaslamp Quarter, a lively hub of restaurants, bars, shops, galleries and theatres.

Day 3: Head away from the coast and drive to Joshua Tree National Park. Sitting between the Mojave and Colorado Deserts, the park is famous for its spectacular desert plants, including Joshua trees, cacti and Mojave yuccas. The area is also home to striking rock formations and mountain ranges. You might like to head out on a scenic hike around the park or even take a refreshing dip in the Colorado River. Today’s total driving time is around seven hours.

Day 4: Drive for six hours to Grand Canyon National Park. Words don’t do justice to the Grand Canyon. This stunning gorge is 1.5 kilometers deep, formed by over six million years of erosion from the Colorado River. You’ll spend two nights here, in order to allow a full day of exploration tomorrow.

Day 5: Today is a free day to explore the Grand Canyon, one of the largest canyon systems in the world. Stroll along the meandering South Rim Trail or hike your way down to Plateau Point. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you might even opt for a scenic flight over the area (at your own expense). In the early evening, relax at the canyon’s edge and enjoy a spectacular sunset over one the world’s natural wonders.

Day 6: Head out of the Grand Canyon and cross the western deserts of Arizona to Las Vegas, which takes around four hours. Along the way, you’ll drive along a section of the famous Route 66, stopping in at the eccentric township of Seligman. The total drive will take around five hours. Las Vegas may be the gambling capital of the world, but there’s plenty to do if gambling isn’t your thing. Hit the shops, feel your stomach drop on a rooftop roller coaster or simply stroll along the Strip, soaking up the glitz and gaudiness. In the evening, perhaps feast on an ‘all you can eat’ buffet, check out one of the many shows on offer or party the night away in a Vegas nightclub.

Day 7: You’ll have another day to further enjoy the delights of Las Vegas. Use the opportunity to find a swimming pool to relax by, have a crack at black jack, check out a show or just soak up the craziness that is Vegas. You may also choose to go on an optional adventure on the infamous Las Vegas Roller Coaster or go-karting.

Day 8: Today is a long day of driving (approximately six hours). You’ll cover more than 550 kilometers through Death Valley and across the Eastern Sierra. Death Valley is one of the hottest places on the planet, with temperatures rising to 56°C in the summer. The park features huge sand dunes, sculpted rocks, isolated valleys and volcanic craters. The canyon and mountain walls change colour with the changing light. Elevations fluctuate from 85 meters below sea level near Badwater Point (the lowest point in the United States) to 3,756 meters at Telescope Peak. In the evening, set up camp for the night.

Day 9: Driving west, travel through the Tioga Pass (snow levels permitting) into the heart of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Your destination is Yosemite National Park. One of the most famous parks in the USA, Yosemite’s colossal granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls and redwood forests attract visitors from all over the world. You’ll spend two nights in the park in order to have a full day of exploration tomorrow. The total driving time today is approximately five hours, or longer if the Tioga Pass is closed.

Day 10: Enjoy a free day to get out and discover Yosemite National Park. There are plenty of hikes available, each varying in steepness and difficulty. Hike under the cooling breezes of Nevada Falls (4-5 hours) or to the serene Mirror Lake (45 minutes). Keep an eye out for squirrels and perhaps even a bear along the way. You might prefer to hire a bike and explore Yosemite Valley. Visit the park’s museum, photo gallery, shops and restaurants along the way. In the heat of summer, a relaxing float down the Merced River followed by a few drinks at the park’s cafe is just the trick.

Day 11: Leave Yosemite behind today and drive west for about four hours to San Francisco. The ‘City by the Bay’ has a beautiful setting and a vibrant, multicultural heart. You might like to check out the vintage stores along funky Haight Street, catch the tram down to the waterfront or take a cruise on the bay to see the impressive Golden Gate Bridge. In the evening, perhaps head out with the group to celebrate your last night with some dumplings in Chinatown or pasta in North Beach.
