Overview
Many travellers firmly believe that the West is the best when taking any touring holiday in the United States. And on this exciting driving holiday you will certainly get to experience the best that the West has to offer. Beginning in stunning San Francisco you will travel down the Pacific coast to Monterey, drive through beautiful Yosemite National Park, and awesome Death Valley before arriving in glittering Las Vegas. Then you leave Nevada and drive back across California to Los Angeles to see all the highlights of this pulsating city.
Day 1
Arrival in San Francisco
Arrive at San Francisco International Airport and drive to your hotel. San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the US. It’s a compact and approachable place, where downtown streets rise on impossible gradients to reveal stunning views of the city, the bay and beyond. San Francisco is culturally vibrant and ethnically diverse and as a result has evolved into the urban jewel of California’s coast. Ride one of the cable cars past rows of elaborate redwood Victorian-Style houses. Visit China Town and explore its streets where exotic ingredients, silks and jade are sold and great native food is served at the many restaurants.

Day 2
San Francisco
Get to know this exiting city today. Visit the dramatic curves of Lombard Street, one of San Francisco’s most photographed sites. The beautifully landscaped, one-block descent from Hyde Street to Leavenworth Street, has given Lombard the title of “crookedest street in the world.” Along the way there are spectacular views of Alcatraz, Angel Island, Coit Tower, Yerba Buena Island and the Bay Bridge. Spend some time in Golden Gate Park and Fisherman's Wharf and this evening enjoy dinner at an Italian restaurant in North Beach.
