Ultimate Western Explorer with San Francisco Add-on

Day 1: UK/Los Angeles
Depart on your scheduled flight to Los Angeles. On arrival, transfer to your hotel for a two-night stay in this exciting city.

Day 2: Los Angeles
Enjoy a day of leisure in Los Angeles. Take an optional morning tour through luxurious Beverly Hills and downtown LA before visiting the famous Farmers’ Market. In the afternoon, explore this buzzing metropolis at your own pace, or join an optional visit to Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

Day 3: San Diego
Begin your day in LA, where you can explore at your leisure or join an optional visit to Universal Studios – a thrilling theme park packed with movie memorabilia, big rides and exciting attractions. This afternoon, we drive to the seaport of San Diego for our two-night stay.

Day 4: San Diego
Your stay in San Diego starts with an included morning tour of this delightful Spanish-influenced city. Then spend the rest of your day enjoying the splendours of San Diego at your own pace – perhaps on a boat trip around the harbour, visiting Old San Diego or taking in a marine show at the renowned Sea World.

Day 5: Scottsdale
Drive through the spectacular desert, crossing the border at Yuma into the state of Arizona. Continue to the ‘Valley of the Sun’ and Scottsdale, a fashionable resort on the outskirts of Phoenix. There’s an optional visit to Rustler’s Rooste, a traditional western steakhouse, this evening.

Day 6: Flagstaff
We leave Scottsdale and drive into Northern Arizona, where our first stop is the fashionable artists’ township of Sedona. Join an optional jeep ride to admire the stunning rock formations that surround the town, or simply explore at your leisure.

Later, we drive through the spectacular Oak Creek Canyon before arriving at the former Wild West town of Flagstaff for a two-night stay.

Day 7: Grand Canyon
Today, we visit a natural wonder that’s a must-see on any traveller’s list: The Grand Canyon. This spectacular 14 mile-wide gorge is even more stunning when viewed from the air, which is why there’s the option to take a scenic flight over the Canyon if you wish. However you choose to view this vast, majestic panorama, you won’t be disappointed.

Day 8: Las Vegas
Depart Flagstaff for the drive westwards to Las Vegas for a two-night stay. Join the optional Las Vegas by Night tour this evening to enjoy the lights and sights of this spectacular desert city.

Day 9: Las Vegas
Explore Las Vegas at your leisure today – an oasis of fun and sparkling nightlife. Visit the famous Strip, with its lavish hotels and casinos offering 24-hour entertainment. It has to be seen – and experienced – to be believed.

This evening, enjoy some free time in Las Vegas – there are plenty of star-studded shows to choose from, or you could try your luck in one of the casinos.

Day 10: Selma
Today, you will be following in the footsteps of the early settlers as we drive through the arid landscape of the Mojave Desert, before crossing the border back into California for an overnight stay in Selma.

Day 11: Yosemite National Park
Today you’ll travel north to the vast Yosemite National Park, with its abundance of waterfalls, lakes and dramatic mountain peaks. We will stop for lunch in the park before travelling on to San Francisco for a two-night stay.

Day 12: San Francisco
San Francisco, the ‘city by the bay’, is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. Home of the Golden Gate Bridge, street cable cars and the buzzing Fisherman’sWharf waterfront, it is a cosmopolitan city with a distinctly European flavour.

This morning, you will cross the Golden Gate Bridge and take in the breathtaking view from the city’s Twin Peaks, before visiting a host of other attractions including Golden Gate Park and Chinatown.

There’s plenty of time for shopping, too. San Francisco boasts an array of fantastic shopping destinations, including a branch of Macy’s that is a whole block in size. And of course, the famous cable cars are a great way of exploring the city.

Days 13 – 15: San Francisco
Spend the rest of your holiday exploring San Francisco at your own pace.
