Fly to San Francisco and transfer to your hotel for the next three nights.
Take this morning's optional guided tour of San Francisco's major landmarks, including Union Square and stylish Nob Hill, before crossing the famously photogenic Golden Gate Bridge to spend some time in the beautiful bayside artists' town of Sausalito. Take the Bay Ferry back to the city, with wonderful views of infamous prison island Alcatraz en route. This evening, why not head for colourful Chinatown, or to the bustle of Fisherman's Wharf, with its shops, bars and restaurants?
Enjoy a day at leisure, perhaps head for colourful Chinatown, or take the 'little cable car' down to the bustle of Union Square, with its shops, and restaurants.
Journey south today, towards the fishing town of Monterey and exquisite Carmel-by-the-Sea, linked by the stunning 17-Mile Drive. Enjoy more of the Pacific coast, as you journey to overnight in Pismo Beach, a classic central Californian coastal resort.
Continue through breathtaking coastal scenery making a stop in palm-fringed, well-heeled Santa Barbara before heading towards glittering Los Angeles and coastal Santa Monica, with its boardwalk and promenade. Spend three nights in the Los Angeles suburb Buena Park.
Rest and relax, or join an optional excursion today to the millionaires' playground of Palm Springs, home of the late Bob Hope and a host of Hollywood stars. Journey to the heights above on the world's longest revolving cable-car, and enjoy the chance of some shopping in the desert city's iconic shops and boutiques.
Enjoy today's full-day excursion to sun-kissed San Diego, a laid-back, southern Californian gem of a city. Highlights include the historic Santa Fe Railroad Depot and the Gaslamp District. Across the Bay Bridge, Coronado Island is home to the Hotel del Coronado, where 'Edward' first met 'Mrs Simpson', and Marilyn Monroe filmed Some Like it Hot. Return back to Los Angeles for a final night.
Cross the desert later today and travel to Laughlin, for a two-night stay in the resort-town set on the banks of the Colorado River. Known as 'Vegas in Miniature' the resort offers a boardwalk, casinos, restaurants and bars.
One of the tour's most unforgettable days awaits you, as you travel into the desert and journey to the edge of the abyss that is the Grand Canyon, perhaps nature's most startling wonder. Visit the South Rim, the most scenic point from which to view the chasm, formed over millennia by the Colorado River, which still flows a mile below. Take an optional helicopter flight for even more stupendous views, before returning for a second night in Laughlin.
Today's journey takes you to Las Vegas for a three night stay in the 'World's Capital of Entertainment', with its spectacular hotels, glittering casinos and sparkling show-lounges - home to some of the biggest names in the business. Enjoy your first experience of this extraordinary man-made entertainment mecca, in which perhaps more than anywhere else, night and day are treated as one.
Today is free to explore. Check out the famously gargantuan 'mega-resorts' of the Strip and Downtown, with their gaming rooms, vast shopping malls, diverse entertainments and endless dining opportunities. Tonight enjoy an optional dinner and entertainment from the stars of the nostalgic The Rat Pack is Back show. There's simply so much to see and do in this truly amazing place!
Enjoy another day of leisure in Las Vegas. Relax by the pool, arrange to be pampered in a spa, or simply shop till you drop. This evening, don't miss the optional 'Vegas Nights' helicopter flight over the 'Strip', and perhaps complete your stay in Vegas by taking in a show in one of the famous lounges.
Bid farewell to Las Vegas heading first for the star-studded streets of Hollywood, where important landmarks include Mann's Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Continue to Los Angeles airport for your return overnight flight.
Arrive back in the UK, at the end of a truly wonderful holiday.
