9 Days of touring America’s west coast
Visiting 1 country: USA
Join the gold rush on this outrageously fun tour of America’s west coast and discover all that’s sparkly about the Golden States. Go ‘all in’ at the casinos of Las Vegas, go au naturel at the Grand Canyon and go ‘OMG!’ in buzzing Beverly Hills. And if that’s not enough to float your Bud Light, there’s also the glitz and glam of Hollywood and eerie Alcatraz to add to your Instagram feed. A goldmine of good times, this trip is sure to offer up ‘treasured’ memories to last a lifetime. Pun intended.
Day 1: Los Angeles, California
Fact: all great adventures kick off in LA. Check out the bling of Beverly Hills and the bright colors of Santa Monica, then finish up with some serious people-watching in Hollywood and Venice Beach on our full day sightseeing tour.
Day 2: Los Angeles
Whether you spend your day getting up close with the characters you loved as a kid at Disneyland, seeking thrills at Universal Studios, or spying on celebrity mega-mansions on a movie star homes tour, the options are all yours for the taking.
Day 3: Los Angeles to Las Vegas, Nevada
Dodge the cacti as you cross the Mojave Desert towards the glitz of Las Vegas. When the sun sets, board the bus and do what Vegas does best – party.
Day 4: Las Vegas
Opt in to pay a visit to a shooting range or take a ride on a big (as in, really big) wheel – the choice is yours. Just save some energy for all the nighttime activities on offer.
Day 5: Las Vegas
Take an optional day trip to the Grand Canyon to soak up a few billion years of rock history , or get a 360-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip with an optional helicopter tour.
Day 6: Las Vegas to San Francisco
Lost track of time last night? Swap stories of your Vegas antics as we fly from the desert to San Fran, aka the city of 43 hills and home of ‘The Rock’.
Day 7: San Francisco
Gear up for a Chinatown tour (including a visit to a fortune cookie factory). Tonight, celebrate your future prosperity over a scrumptious Chinese dinner.
Day 8: San Francisco
What better way to celebrate your final day than to head out on an optional sunset catamaran cruise? Warning: things could be a tear jerker.
Day 9: San Francisco
One last breakfast with your peeps, then the adventure ends. But it’ll live on forever in your heart, right?

9 nights in hotels, motels and lodges.
We stay at good quality hotels that reflect the character of the local area as well as being as centrally located as possible, while striving to keep the cost affordable. However, standards and ratings may differ to what you are used to in your own country. It’s also worth noting that standards may also vary throughout the different regions of the country you are visiting.
If you are a solo traveller, you will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex. If you are travelling as a couple and would prefer to have a double bed, please officially request a double room with us. We never presume that two people travelling together are a couple, even if you share the same surname, unless informed otherwise.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have booked pre or post trip accommodation, please note that most hotels in North America require you to present a credit card at check in even if your accommodation has been pre-paid for. The hotel will either place a temporary hold on a set amount (called a pre-authorisation) or will make a manual swipe of the card. This is done to cover incidentals, for example if you consume something from the mini-bar, or if you damage the hotel room. Your card will NOT actually be charged unless you use the mini-bar, etc. Please ask the hotel front desk clerk for a further explanation when checking in if you are unsure about why they need the card. Again, this is standard procedure at most hotels and is typically not something you need to be concerned about.
5 breakfasts, 4 dinners.
Please note that drinks are not included with meals, except at breakfast where coffee, tea and/or juice may be included. If you wish to purchase drinks at dinner you may do so at your own expense.
If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise us when you book. However, please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.

ATMs are widely available throughout America. Major credit and debit cards are accepted in most places.

On all trips we have arranged extra activities that we think will enhance your travel experience, but you have a choice as to whether or not you will participate. These are not included in the cost of your trip. They are usually organised on a group participation basis and should be taken into consideration when budgeting your spending money. None of the Optional Activities on your trip are operated by us, nor do they form part of your contract with us for your trip. Should you participate in any Optional Activities your contract will be with the local supplier and their conditions will apply.

One of the best parts of travelling is experiencing the nightlife and entertainment each city has to offer. However, amidst the fun and excitement, it’s important to be aware of your surroundings and personal safety as well. Before you hit the road with us, it’s important to be aware of the following:
When you’re on a night out, remember to avoid walking alone, particularly through deserted areas like beaches and back streets. Always stick together, take a taxi where possible, and keep a note of your accommodation details so you can find your way back to your fellow travellers if you become separated.
In some countries, alcoholic measures can be considerably larger than what you may be used to. Try to keep track of what you’re drinking, and if you see one of your trip mates looking a little worse for wear, take them back to your accommodation. Be cautious when accepting drinks from strangers and never leave your drink unattended.
It’s also important to be aware that what you might consider harmless flirting may be interpreted differently in some countries. Be yourself and have fun, but don’t be naïve, and be mindful of the signals you are sending out so that you don’t find yourself in an uncomfortable situation.
