Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive Las Vegas

Welcome to Vegas, baby! You have today all to yourself but you’ll need to run to a tight schedule to fit in all of Vegas' weird and wonderful charms. Travel the world in a day, taking in the Eiffel Tower, a Venetian gondola and even an Egyptian pyramid, all whilst staying firmly within the city's realm. Feeling romantic? Stop by and see one of the many Elvis impersonators for a shotgun wedding ceremony, and maybe even get hitched yourself...(joking). Tonight live like a baller while you cruise along the 'Strip' in a party bus and don't stress, the bills on us. Later, you’ll witness the 24-hour party scene first hand when you head out for a night with the crew.

02

Day 2: Las Vegas to Lake Tahoe Via Mojave and Sierra Nevada

From the ridiculously flashy Vegas ‘Strip’ to the outdoor capital of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this change of scenery will bring you and the crew back to nature again.

03

Day 3: Lake Tahoe

Morning snow angels! It's time to hit the slopes! Whether you're a beginner bound for the bunny hill or a pro who owns the terrain park, Tahoe offers things to do both on and off the slope. Beginners can get a ski or board lesson with one of the expert instructors, or those with a bit more experience can get straight out there. Not keen on getting up on the slopes? Take the lift or gondola and enjoy the views over the lake, taking a few selfies for good measure. This lakeside spot is nestled between the Sierra Nevada mountains, and a good way to relax after the bright lights and big city vibes of Vegas.

04

Day 4: Lake Tahoe

Hit the slopes of Heavenly to get your snow fix. Our jump on a snowmobile and get into the back-country. Back at the lodge, you could relax, grab a hot chocolate and breathe in the mountain air.

05

Day 5: Lake Tahoe to San Francisco via Old Town Sacramento

We dust the snow off our boots this morning and make way to the city for the final leg of the adventure. Bye bye mountain air, it's been real. Colourful characters, freethinkers, and artists have all descended upon San Francisco to make this place an historically eclectic place. Via Oakland and the Sacramento Valley, we to descend upon the treasure of beatnik culture, cable cars and the Golden Gate Bridge.
On our drive, we'll roll back the clock at Old Town Sacramento. Re-fuel on some lunch (your Trip Manager will give you a local recommendation) then we're back on the road towards tonight's stop.

06

Day 6: San Francisco

Now that you have the city sussed you can dive a little deeper and tap into what you didn't tick off yesterday with a full free day to do your thing, with a bike tour thrown in for good measure. On two wheels, we'll cross the Golden Gate Bridge, go past Fisherman's Wharf and Crissy Field - some say the bridge shows off some of her best angles from this spot, and with us you'll get right there. See the sea lions of Pier 39, grab a chowder bowl, an Irish coffee at Buena Vista cafe in your free time, kick it in Chinatown or take a ferry ride across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz. As the old saying goes 'I left my heart in San Francisco' will ring true as you prepare to depart tomorrow. But first, the home of chowder bowls - yet another tick box as you sink into fresh clam chowder and soft sourdough bread bowls. Prepare for a collective mmmm. When night falls, we'll head to Chinatown for a tour and slurp on noodles, egg rolls and dumplings.

07

Day 7: Depart San Francisco

This morning the tour ends and it’s time to say goodbye to your new friends.
