This departure follows a shorter itinerary than our standard tour, concluding in the legendary ‘City by the Bay’, San Francisco. One of the longest running of our original holidays, our escorted tours to California are still among our most popular itineraries today. You’ll travel around California (nudging into neighbouring Nevada and Arizona), visiting great cities like Los Angeles and Las Vegas. You’ll drive along Route 66 and visit the spectacular scenery of Yosemite National Park. We’ll also spend two nights in Flagstaff: gateway to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon.

  • The Sonesta Redondo Beach & Marina (4-star) is ideally located for your explorations. There’s the Riviera Village to explore, home to over 300 eclectic shops and restaurants.
  • This extension isn't available for those choosing our shorter duration itinerary.
