Overview

On this exciting 15-day Western Discovery tour, you’ll discover California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. Marvel at glittering Las Vegas, explore Cali’s sun-soaked cities, and explore Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park. This circular route allows you to see the highlights, landmarks and stunning scenery of four of the Western states. And you can sit back and relax, as this is a fully escorted tour with both a driver and a guide.

Starting in Los Angeles, the tour heads down to laidback San Diego, before taking you into the desert to see how the other-half live in Palm Springs, the winter playground for Hollywood royalty. Next, you'll travel into Arizona, ticking off Phoenix and Mesa. And, of course, no tour of the Western states would be complete without a stop at the Grand Canyon. After a few days in Arizona, you'll hop over into Utah to explore the Lake Powell, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, all of which boast stunning scenery.

Your next stop is Sin City. We couldn't skip Las Vegas, so you'll have a full day to explore The Strip and its many themed hotels. Afterwards, you'll drive through Death Valley and on to beautiful Yosemite National Park. Your trip continues with some time in San Francisco, where you can ride on the famous cable cars, visit Alcatraz, or watch the sea lions in the marina. Your coach then makes its way down the coast through Monterey, Carmel, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara before returning to Los Angeles.
