Hollywood, Vegas & the Grand Canyon Itinerary
Day One – Fly to Los Angeles
Fly to California’s largest city, meet your tour manager and make the short transfer to your hotel in Southern LA, by coach. Rest and relax after the journey, and enjoy the first of three evenings in the City of Angels.
Day Two – Included visit to San Diego
Join today’s excursion to the laid-back Pacific city of San Diego, the epitome of Southern California
living. Here, the highlights of your guided tour will include the restored Downtown area, the historic Santa Fe Railroad Depot, and the Gaslamp District’s wonderful collection of arts and crafts stores, specialist boutiques and places to eat.
You’ll return to LA to spend a second evening enjoying the warmth and excitement of the city.
Day Three – Optional Santa Monica and Malibu tour
Today you’ll have time to rest and relax in the hotel and its surroundings, enjoying the sunshine for which southern California is renowned, or to join our optional excursion to Santa Monica.
Stroll down Santa Monica’s ocean-front boardwalk, see the pier and Ferris wheel, and enjoy the exceptional shopping on Third Street Promenade. Take a seat in a beachfront café to watch LA life as it jogs, cycles or skates its health-obsessed way down towards Venice Beach, then follow the beautiful coast road west around the bay to Malibu, the exclusive beachside home to the stars of music and the movies.
Day Four – Travel to the Grand Canyon
Journey east into the Nevada Desert, heading for the spectacular Grand Canyon, close to which you’ll spend the night.
Day Five – Watch the sun rise over the Grand Canyon
Wake early, this morning, to witness the breathtaking sight as the sun rises over the Grand Canyon – one of nature’s most unforgettable sights. Later, perhaps take an optional helicopter flight over the chasm to marvel at the almost incomprehensible vastness of it all.
You’ll then continue through the awe-inspiring desert landscape, to Las Vegas, your base for the next four nights. Waste no time in familiarising yourself with your glittering, neon-lit surroundings – every bit as surreal as the Canyon’s glories.
Days Six to Eight – At leisure in Las Vegas
Spend three days discovering glittering, glorious Las Vegas and some of the extraordinary places that lie on its Nevada Desert doorstep.
Nothing prepares you for the glitz, glamour and sheer scale of this monument to man’s capacity for fun that seems to rise out of the desert floor, its towering hotels and gargantuan casinos reaching skywards, its streets – including the famous Strip – lined with colourful entertainment centres, stores, themed bars, and show lounges that have played host to generations of the entertainment industry’s most famous names.
Spend your days relaxing, checking out the city’s shopping malls or even heading for one of the resort’s many golf courses. Come sundown, try your luck – or watch others trying theirs – in a sparkling, state-of-the-art casino where you’ll find no end to the ways you can try your hand against Lady Luck. Wander up and down the Strip to see this unique place in all its colourful glory.
See the amazing displays of the Bellagio Hotel’s iconic dancing fountains, enjoy the special-effects-laden spectacle of a swashbuckling pirate adventure at Treasure Island, or take to the skies on an optional night-time helicopter ride over the Strip.
Day Nine – Visit Hollywood and fly home
Bid farewell to Vegas, heading for Hollywood, home to the stars of the silver screen and the world-famous heart of the modern movie industry. Look for your favourite star’s star on Hollywood Boulevard’s Walk of Fame, then continue to the airport to check in for your overnight flight home.
Day 10 – Arrive home
Arrive back in the UK, this morning, at the end of an exciting West Coast USA adventure.
