Highlights

 

Strap on your walking shoes and travel through some of America’s most legendary landscapes on a 13 day Highlights of USA and National Parks tour.

Ready to explore? First touchdown in San Francisco and get a taste for this diverse waterfront city by ticking off sights including the Golden Gate Bridge and Park, Market Street, Fisherman’s Wharf and Chinatown. The trip begins its exploration of America’s great national parks in spectacular fashion – at Yosemite National Park. This park, located in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains, is brimming with ancient sequoia trees, lush grassy meadows, tumbling waterfalls and thickly-forested valleys. Another of the big names on the tour’s hit list is Grand Canyon National Park, and you’ll have a chance to take in the spectacular deep-carved gorges and red rock from the South Rim. Other landscapes you’ll marvel at include those at Arches National Park and Upper Antelope Canyon. Catching the sunrise at Bryce Canyon National Park is sure to be a special highlight, as is stepping onto the desert terrain immortalised in old Hollywood Western movies at Monument Valley.

Step back in time and get a glimpse into California’s mining history with a trip to Calico Ghost Town. The tour ends in Las Vegas with 2 nights at Treasure Island. Use your free time in this dazzling desert city to walk the lengths of the famous Strip, shop up a storm in one of the sprawling and high-end malls, or buy last-minute tickets for a residency show by an A-lister pop star.

The tour continues to Fresno, a city situated in the San Joaquin Valley. 

Day 4: Fresno – Calico Ghost Town – Las Vegas (B,D)

The itinerary takes a spooky twist this morning with a visit to Calico Ghost Town. Calico was once an old west mining town that flourished in the silver strike of the 1880s. The town was abandoned however once silver began to lose its value. Today, Calico has been converted into a county park and restored to its former glory. This afternoon, the itinerary continues to Las Vegas. 

Day 5: Las Vegas – Grand Canyon South Rim (B)

Day 6: Monument Valley – Gooseneck State Park (B,L)

Head to Monument Valley, Utah after breakfast. This area lays claim to being one of the most photographed places in America’s south west and is recognisable thanks to its cluster of sandstone buttes, mesas and spires.
