Overview

One of the longest-running of our original holidays, our escorted tours to California are still among our most popular itineraries today. Travelling in a loop around California (and nudging into neighbouring Nevada and Arizona), it includes great cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco, drives along Route 66 and the Pacific coastal road, and the spectacular scenery of Yosemite National Park. We’ll also spend two nights in Flagstaff: gateway to the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon. .......read more
Highlights
  • Driving Big Sur - a rugged, mountainous section of California’s Central Coast.
  • It’s one of the most beautiful and dramatic coastlines in the world, so make sure your camera is fully charged!

The desert scenery of Arizona is a complete contrast to the Californian coast - but just as beautiful. En route to Flagstaff, we’ll stop off at Oak Creek Canyon, a 16-mile river gorge.

Nothing can quite prepare you for your first sight of the Grand Canyon. This colossal geographical wonder is 277 miles long, 18 miles wide and one mile deep.

Get your adrenaline pumping and take to the skies on an optional helicopter ride over the canyon, or pull up a rock and ponder the incredible view. However you choose to view it, this inspiring sight is sure to inspire the creative photographer in you so be sure to charge your camera ahead of our visit today. This is a real highlight of our California tours.

Location: Williams, Las Vegas

Sin City. The Entertainment Capital of the World. City of Lights. Las Vegas is all of the above and more. After stopping off for a Wild West shootout at Williams, we arrive at this oasis of indulgence in the heart of the Mojave Desert. The city might seem a little overwhelming at first, but you don’t need to be a high roller or slots wizard to have fun here. Stop for a show (you’ll have plenty of choice!), visit Fremont Street - the ‘original’ Las Vegas - or walk along The Strip to soak up the weird and wonderful sights. You’ll have the chance to visit the Hoover Dam on a short morning excursion - a spectacular engineering achievement built in the 1930s.

Accommodation: ,Hotel,

Accommodation Name: Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel (4-star) or Harrah's Las Vegas (4-star)

Meals: ,No Meals,

Location: Calico, Visalia

We cross the Mojave Desert en route to Calico, a once-thriving centre of silver mining, now an enjoyable reminder of the days when cowboys roamed its streets. We pause in Visalia for the night.

Accommodation: ,Hotel,

Accommodation Name: Wyndham Visalia (3-star)

Meals: ,No Meals,

Location: Yosemite National Park, Modesto

Yosemite is the headliner of all America’s national parks - and we’ll spend the day exploring some of its best bits. This natural sanctuary is a real feast for the eyes and for the soul. Take a deep gulp of fresh air, gaze up at the craggy mountain views and walk by postcard-pretty lakes and verdant forests. We’ll stop to pose for a photo in front of El Capitan - an immense vertical rock formation and an icon of American wilderness. Waterfalls and streams, lakes and rivers, valleys and meadows - Yosemite is endlessly photogenic. After getting our fill of this natural wonder, we’ll continue west to Modesto.

Accommodation: ,Hotel,

Accommodation Name: DoubleTree Modesto (3.5-star)

Meals: ,No Meals,

Location: San Francisco

We’ll enjoy two nights in the ‘City by the Bay’, with a full day at leisure. On a guided tour, you’ll have the chance to sample delicious street food in China Town, wander through Union Square and admire the city skyline as you cross the famed Golden Gate Bridge. With a full day to spend as you please, there’s so much to see and do. There’s notorious Alcatraz (you’ll need to have booked this independently before you left the UK); you could wander up and down the iconic streets, including zig-zagging Lombard Street; or maybe walk around the eclectic district of Haight-Ashbury (the heart of America’s ‘counterculture’ in the 1960s), so beloved of hippies, artists, writers and musicians.

Accommodation: ,Hotel,

Accommodation Name: Parc 55, San Francisco (4-star)

Meals: ,No Meals,

Location: Monterey, 17 Mile Drive, Big Sur, Cambria

Today we’ll make the epic drive from the old Spanish and Mexican capital of upper California, Monterey, to Cambria - a route which takes us along one of the loveliest roads in the world. 17 Mile Drive wiggles along the coastline of the Monterey peninsula, passing pebbled bays, craggy coves and cypress forests. We’ll stop for lunch in delightful Carmel, before continuing along the curving Big Sur coastline (the inspiration behind Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel).

Accommodation: ,Hotel,

Accommodation Name: Cambria Pines Lodge (3-star)

Meals: ,No Meals,

Location: Santa Barbara, Redondo Beach

Santa Barbara - a town of natural beauty favoured by artists - is a ‘really great place’ (as the locals will proudly tell you). The pretty harbour promenade and palm-fringed streets are the perfect setting for a stop, en route to Redondo Beach for our final night.
