Yosemite & Tahoe In-Depth

From £2799 for 7 days
Trip Overview
Begin your in-depth tour in everybody’s favourite, ‘The City by the Bay’ – San Francisco. Enjoy coastal Monterey where the sparkling Pacific Ocean and wildlife such as harbour seals, otters and whales dominate this area between May and November. Included is a whale watching cruise to observe these magnificent mammals. High in the Sierra Nevadas, we hit the wilderness trails of Yosemite National Park to explore the mountains, meadows, valleys and Giant Sequoia trees. Walking the trails is the best way to really unleash what Yosemite has to offer and we have included some dedicated and leader led hikes. The views are incredible, as pristine alpine forests give way to sparkling granite peaks. Mark Twain said Lake Tahoe’s air was pure enough for angels. Enjoy the lake vistas and hiking trails at Lake Tahoe and round off your experience with a sunset cruise whilst sipping champagne on the crystal-clear, deep blue water.

Itinerary & Notes
Welcome to the ‘City by the Bay’ in sunny California. San Francisco is a city that the locals are fiercely proud of, and for good reason. There’s plenty to keep you entertained but the best introduction is booking one of our ‘Urban Adventures’ to discover the city through the eyes of a local guide. A welcome meeting will be held at 18:00 hrs tonight to meet your fellow travellers and tour leader over a welcome dinner. *Please note:* No trip to San Francisco is complete without a visit to Alcatraz. We recommend you book an extra night in our hotel the night before the tour starts and book your ticket online in advance with Alcatraz Cruises. *Accommodation:* Kimpton Buchanan Hotel or similar

GROUP TOUR from £3915 for 18 days

HIGHLIGHTS

- While other trips breeze through spectacular Yosemite National Park in a day, on this adventure you'll spend two nights in the park, allowing for a full day of hiking and exploring. With its pine forests, waterfalls and dramatic granite cliff faces, Yosemite feels like something out of 'The Land Before Time'
- Don't let the name fool you. With its water-sculpted canyons, extinct volcanic craters, palm-shaded oases and salt flats, Death Valley is rich in natural beauty and endemic wildlife, and is often a highlight of the trip
- Walk among 2,000-year-old trees as tall as skyscrapers in Sequoia National Park. Think of all the things they must have seen in that time

GROUP TOUR from £1254 for 11 days

HIGHLIGHTS

- Towering granite cliffs, cascading waterfalls, redwood forests and epic night skies - Yosemite National Park feels like utopia. While other tour groups breeze through in a day, you'll spend two nights in the park, allowing for a full day of hiking and exploring
- For many, Death Valley conjures up images of a flat and barren wasteland. Be surprised by the park's ethereal landscapes of sand dunes, water-sculpted canyons, extinct volcanic craters and, in the spring, fields of wildflowers
- With its out-there culture and wild night life, Las Vegas really deserves a decent stay. You'll have a full day and two nights to make the most of this awesome city
