Days 3: Grand Canyon: The incredible Grand Canyon stretches before you as you hike from the towering forests on the rim to the red rock and white sands of the base. Enjoy an unforgettable sunset with a pizza dinner.
Days 4: Las Vegas: Wander the electric strip of Las Vegas Boulevard and soak up the buzz of this incredible place. Why not jump into the back of a stretch limo to see the city in style (extra cost)?
Day 5: Sierra Nevadas: Venture into the hottest, driest and lowest place on earth – Death Valley. This harsh, barren landscape is otherworldly and quite beautiful, like standing on another planet!
Days 6: Yosemite National Park: From the barren wastelands of Death Valley to the lush abundance of Yosemite, this staggeringly beautiful National Park is a patchwork of sweeping forests, soaring cliffs and plunging waterfalls. Enjoy hiking or biking in the Park.
Days 7: San Francisco: Arrive into San Francisco, where you tour ends. Explore the bohemian streets of Haight-Ashbury, tuck into some clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf and watch lazing sea lions from Pier 39.
