Sightseeing

Day 1: Arrive Los Angeles (2 Nights)
Welcome to Los Angeles, the city of glitz, glamour and stars. Get settled in at your hotel before meeting your Travel Director this afternoon.


Day 2: Los Angeles Sightseeing
This morning, set out to see the best Los Angeles has to offer-from wealthy Beverly Hills mansions to eclectic Hollywood. Stop at the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the legendary Grauman's Chinese Theatre with its celebrity hand prints, footprints, and autographs etched into the theatre's concrete forecourt. Drive along the Sunset Strip and visit Santa Monica.


Day 3: Los Angeles - San Diego
Head south for the drive along the coast to charming San Diego, a Spanish-influenced city, set around a sweeping bay and numerous sparkling white sand beaches. On arrival, enjoy a sightseeing tour and discover the beautifully restored Gaslamp Quarter, Balboa Park-the largest cultural complex west of the Mississippi-and Historic Old Town San Diego, the "birthplace" of California. It was here in 1769 that Father Junipero Serra came to establish the first of 21 missions that became the cornerstones of California. Today, Old Town San Diego still preserves the rich heritage from the period of 1821-1871.


Day 4: San Diego - Phoenix
Leaving the coast behind you, climb 4,000 feet (1,219 metres), passing through the Cleveland National Forest and hugging the United States-Mexico border. Descend towards desert hot sands and white plains and cross the Arizona state line and Colorado River, before heading to the Valley of the Sun and fashionable Phoenix.


Day 5: Phoenix - Grand Canyon - Flagstaff
Continue through the Sonoran Desert. Stop in Sedona for the opportunity to join an off-road jeep excursion. Head for the Grand Canyon with its awe-inspiring views and meet with a Local Specialist who walks you through the geological life of the canyon. Examine the multicolored rocks from different eras of the canyon's formation, a UNESCO Site and Natural Wonder of the World. Later this afternoon, arrive in Flagstaff, a famous outpost on Historic Route 66.


Day 6: Flagstaff - Historic Route 66 - Las Vegas (2 Nights)
Call in at Seligman and Kingman, two other iconic outposts along the celebrated "Mother Road." Get ready to be amazed as you arrive in larger-than-life Las Vegas-an entertainment oasis right in the middle of the desert. Dubbed "Sin City," Las Vegas is all about glitz, glam and neon lights.


Day 7 : Las Vegas Free Time
Enjoy a free day in Las Vegas to pursue your own interests.


Day 8: Las Vegas - Visalia
Leave Las Vegas, driving through the stark Mojave Desert, skirting the famous Edwards Air Force base. Marvel at the magnificent mountains of the Sierra Nevada before continuing through the vast fertile plains of the San Joaquin Valley, the "Breadbasket of California." Arrive in Visalia for your overnight stay.


Day 9: Visalia - Yosemite National Park - Modesto
Nothing can quite prepare you for the incredible scenery of Yosemite National Park. Be surrounded by breathtaking panoramas of lush forests and verdant meadows framed by El Capitan and iconic Half Dome. Overnight in Modesto, the heart of one of the greatest agricultural areas in the nation.


Day 10: Modesto - San Fransisco (2 Nights)
Travel back toward the California coast, across the Bay Bridge and into San Francisco, the famous "City by the Bay." Your city tour includes the bustling Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Presidio and North Beach. This evening, consider joining an optional Chinatown walking tour, complete with a Chinese dinner.
