Summary

California Calling Flight Inclusive

Day 1: Los Angeles, California to Las Vegas, Nevada
Assemble the wolf pack as we drive along the Mojave desert: next stop Vegas. Postcards home write of buffets, blackjack and the Bellagio, but few mention the ridiculous antics you can only get up to in sin city. Fancy(er) than normal pools, 5am burgers in your hotel and party buses? We did say this was Vegas. Hit the strip aboard our party bus and let Vegas show you its colours. Remember, what happens here…

 

Day 2: Las Vegas
G-rated Vegas sounds like an oxymoron, but there's plenty of family-friendly options from indoor skydiving to roller coasters atop needle-pin buildings. Today, Vegas is your oyster, and there's a good chance it will be battered and deep fried. Have a go at carting, feel like Godzilla in a helicopter flight above the strip, or recline in your seat as you watch the world go by from the Observation Wheel.


Day 3: Las Vegas (day trip to Grand Canyon)
Have a break from the strip with some fresh air and open spaces. And by open, we mean grand. And by spaces, we mean canyon. The OMG view around the canyon rim or from the (optional) chopper is well worth the journey along Route 66. Or just relish in a food coma from Big Mama's Rib Shack. You'll drool over both.

Day 4: Las Vegas to Yosemite National Park region, California
Lost track of time last night? Swap stories of your Vegas antics as we drive from the desert to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and our gateway to Yosemite National Park.

 

Day 5: Yosemite National Park
There's not enough flowery adjectives to describe the beauty of Yosemite Valley. It doesn't have honey badgers, but it does have bears, coyotes and golden eagles that are badass in their own right. Hike to Vernal Falls, ride or take the free shuttle to explore the real-world equivalent of Narnia. There’s always the Ansel Adams Gallery if you need photography pointers.

 

Day 6: Yosemite to Napa Valley
The home of Californian wine is well worth the ride—says 3.3 million people coming here every year. Luckily you’ve got an included wine tasting. The only question is Pinot or Sav Blanc? Your call.

Day 7: Napa Valley to San Francisco
Just like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, the reward of walking on the Golden Gate bridge awaits us as we arrive in free-loving San Francisco. Stop in Sausalito en-route to SF before our city tour of heavyweights: Golden Gate Bridge, Haight-Ashbury, Painted Ladies, Chinatown, North Beach and Fisherman's Wharf. NOTE: If you want a “get into jail” pass to visit Alcatraz, do the crime (of booking) BEFORE you come on tour. You won't have time to do the tour today so save it for tomorrow.
