Further trip information

Explore America’s awesome west coast on board a buzzing private vehicle with free Wi-Fi and a gang of like-minded adventurers. See it all, from the celeb city of Los Angeles to the barren landscapes of Death Valley and the cool beaches of the Pacific Coast!

Days 1-2: Los Angeles and San Diego. Keep your eyes peeled for celebs on the gleaming boulevards of L.A as you meet your group and guide in the morning. Then, leave L.A. behind and roll on to the buzzing city of San Diego. As the sun sets, get ready for a night out in the Gaslamp Quarter and sample the city’s electric nightlife.

Day 3: Colorado River. Time to get out of the city and into the heat of the Mojave Desert. Camp near the Colorado River.

Days 4-5: Lake Havasu & Grand Canyon. Swing by Lake Havasu and then hit the incredible Grand Canyon. Hike from towering forests to red rock and white sand. Alternatively, hop on an optional helicopter ride and enjoy a bird’s eye view of this natural wonder. 

Days 6-7: Las Vegas. Discover the neon-soaked wonderland of Vegas. Settle into your accommodation, lounge by the pool and then enjoy a party ride experience! The evening is yours to indulge in a big meal, take in a Vegas show or try your luck at a hotel casino. 

Day 8: Death Valley. Venture into the hottest, driest and lowest place on earth, Death Valley. This barren landscape is otherworldly and quite beautiful - like standing on another planet! You’ll be staying in nearby (and slightly cooler!) Bishop for the night.

Days 9-10: Yosemite National Park. From the barren wastelands of Death Valley to the lush abundance of Yosemite, this staggeringly beautiful national park is a patchwork of sweeping forests, soaring cliffs and plunging waterfalls. Pull on your hiking boots and explore the many trails, keeping an eye out for the various wonderful wildlife that make Yosemite their home. 

Days 11-12: San Francisco. Watch the iconic Golden Gate Bridge come into view as you drive into San Francisco. Explore the bohemian streets of Haight-Ashbury, tuck into some clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf and watch lazing sea-lions from Pier 39. You’ll even enjoy a guided tour of Chinatown and North Beach!

Day 13: Pacific Coast. Hit the road again and journey along the Pacific Coast, exploring beautiful Big Sur and the McWay Falls. Wander the coastal paths and spot whales and sea lions. 

Day 14: Santa Barbara & Los Angeles. Enjoy the beach paradise of Santa Barbara and the perfect people of Venice Beach before cruising into L.A. where your epic road trip comes to an end.

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Healthcare
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
