Best of the West
Best of the West
Skyscrapers, sequoias, and impossibly big skies await you in America’s West. This 15-day tour through the urban and natural wonders of California, Arizona, and Nevada is perfect for travellers who want to inject a little downtown energy into their out-of-town escapes. In the cities, you’ll traverse the concrete jungle by day with an expert Chief Experience Officer (CEO) and overnight in centrally-located hotels and hostels. Elsewhere, you’ll get the chance to marvel at the grandeur of the Grand Canyon and the giant sequoias of Yosemite before diving into a barbecue dinner and camping under the stars. This is no dream; it’s the West like you’ve never seen it before.
Stargaze in Los Angeles, marvel at a Grand Canyon sunset, opt to spend a night in dramatic Monument Valley, take a chance in Las Vegas, camp under the stars, hike in Yosemite.
Hotels/hostels (5 nts, some multi-share), participation camping (9 nts).
1 or 2 Chief Experience Officers (CEOs) throughout, depending on group size.
