Day Three

Spend today exploring 'Vegas, or perhaps visit the Hoover Dam on our optional excursion. One of the most remarkable engineering feats of the 20th Century, the dam contains Lake Mead, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the US. This evening's excursion introduces you to Vegas by night, the highlight of which is the wonderful 'dancing' fountains at the Bellagio Hotel. Afterwards, you're free to try your hand at one of the casinos for the ultimate Vegas experience.

Day Four

Today you'll journey to Laughlin, an oasis bordered by rugged desert and the Colorado River, and your base for the next two nights.

Day Five

Our included visit to the Grand Canyon introduces you to one of the world's greatest natural wonders and to nearly two billion years of the Earth's geological history. Experience the canyon's awe-inspiring beauty from above on our optional flight by helicopter - truly an unforgettable experience.

Day Six

Today we head towards the coast and a three-night stay in Anaheim, home to many of California's fun-filled attractions.

Day Seven

Spend the day exploring or discover Temecula Valley and the seductive coastal city of San Diego, on our optional excursion to two of California's most fascinating destinations.

Explore at leisure today and experience all that Anaheim has to offer. Head to the beach, hit the excellent shops or perhaps visit one of the action-packed theme parks if you're feeling adventurous!

Day 10

Board the coach and head north on the Pacific Coast Highway, calling at two towns linked by the scenic 17-Mile Drive - Carmel-by-the-Sea, renowned for its natural beauty and rich artistic history, and Monterey, immortalized by one-time resident John Steinbeck. We'll continue to eclectic San Francisco, the fabled 'City by the Bay', for a three-night stay.

Day 11

Our optional guided tour provides an excellent way to get to know this diverse city. After a short introduction, we'll cross the breathtaking Golden Gate Bridge to the delightful waterfront community of Sausalito.

Further Information

Las Vegas by Night excursion

Please note that this tour is partly by foot. As the shows on this excursion are provided free of charge outside of the main Strip hotels and their operation is outside of our control, we cannot guarantee that all will operate as planned or described.

US Arrivals Process

British Citizens travelling to the USA now have to register online with US Immigration at least 72 hours before departure. We will send you the details you will need to complete your online registration, along with your tickets, about two weeks prior to travel. A charge of $14US per person applies to this process.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver or tour manager is about $3 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 12-15 per cent of the bill and, in the bar, leave a dollar or so per drink.

Flights

Please note that in both directions between London Gatwick and Minneapolis, a technical stop is made in Gander.
