Day 1

Las Vegas

Arrive into Las Vegas and transfer independently to your hotel where you’ll meet with your tour guide. The evening is free for you to do as you wish, from taking in a show to wandering along the famous Strip or hitting a few of the casinos. If you want to admire the sights, take a ride on the 550ft-tall ‘High Roller’ observation wheel, the tallest in the world and an exciting way to experience beautiful vistas of the skyline.

Overnight: Luxor Hotel & Casino

Day 2

Grand Canyon

Visit the iconic Grand Canyon today, beginning your adventure to this world-famous park with an unforgettable view from the air – board a private aircraft bound for the South Rim of the park and glide over the Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport you’ll board a motorcoach to embark on the ground portion of the tour, stopping along the Rim to take in the incredible vistas and enjoy a picnic lunch. There’ll be time to take a stroll through the landscape and shop for souvenirs before boarding the coach once more to return to Las Vegas for your overnight stay – upon arrival there’ll be a welcome reception for you and your group. 

Overnight: Luxor Hotel & Casino (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

Day 3

Las Vegas – Yosemite National Park

Take a short flight on board a private aircraft this morning to Merced which serves as the gateway to Yosemite National Park. Upon arrival, you’ll board a motorcoach and journey along the original route along Highway 140, which was the first route that brought travellers directly to the valley floor along the Merced River Canyon. Once you arrive inside the park you’ll be met by the awe-inspiring scenery of the park itself, including the Half Dome, El Capitan, Tunnel View, Bridalveil Falls and Yosemite Falls. Be sure to have your camera ready as this breath-taking area boasts countless photo opportunities.

Overnight: Yosemite View Lodge (Breakfast included)

Day 4-5

Yosemite National Park – San Francisco

Bid farewell to the park and journey west to the City by the Bay – San Francisco. Along the way, you’ll stop in the famous Napa Valley and have chance to explore the town of Sonoma.

On day five, you’ll embark on a city tour in the morning for a fun and laid-back way to experience all that the city has to offer, from Union Square and Fisherman’s Wharf. No visit to the city would be complete with a tour of the bay, so prepare to set sail on a cruise past the famous Pier 39 and its sea lions, all along the historic waterfront and under the Golden Gate Bridge. After circling the notorious Alcatraz Island, you’ll return to land and be free to explore at leisure with some visits to the museums, a coffee in a quaint café or perhaps a spot of shopping.

Further south, the highway passes Hearst Castle and Morro Bay into the heart of California’s Central Coast.
