Description of Tour

From San Francisco we travel to the granite world of Yosemite National Park and Ansel Adams. From the Sierra Nevada we descend into Death Valley, one of the hottest and driest places on earth. We hike from there up to Angels Landing and have fantastic views over Zion National Park. The tour ends in the "City of Sins", where everyone should try his and her luck: Las Vegas is more than just casinos!

Run the steepest, twistiest road in the world - at least that's what locals would have you believe. Enjoy the diversity of the city: Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, Cable Cars and the largest Chinatown outside the Orient! It's best to plan a few extra days to really enjoy the city in its thousand ways!

***If you want to spend a day before in San Francisco and visit Alcatraz, you should book this through us in advance. The trips are often fully booked! Alcatraz sightseeing/boat tour $30***

From the vibrant big city of San Francisco, it's just a short drive to Yosemite National Park. The landscape has been shaped by glaciers, rivers and waterfalls. Granite cliffs hang over the valleys, one of the most impressive formations is Half Dome. This famous rock formation in Yosemite towers 1444 m above the valley. It is possible to take a full-day hike up Half Dome, but shorter hikes in the valley also offer impressive views of Ansel Adams's photography.

***Optional ***
Bike rental $12/hr:$32/day
Photography workshop $$Price varies$$

As we make our way down into Death Valley, the landscape changes drastically - even though we are still in the same US state! Death Valley is the deepest, driest and hottest point in North America. The geological diversity is stunning with salt lakes, volcanic mountains, oases and sand dunes.

150 million year old rock formations and mountains shape the landscape in Zion National Park, which is part of the Grand Staircase (Gran Canyon, Zion and Bryce). We camp in the valley near the Virgin River, explore the town of Springdale, and don't miss climbing Angel's Landing to gaze at the sunrise. The autumnal colors of the National Park make this place a paradise for photography.

***Optional ***
Ride 1 hour ($45) - 2 hours ($75) - 4 hours ($135) - Full day ($180)
Sunset Jeep Tour $30

We end our tour in "Sin City". After San Francisco and all the National Parks, time to explore the nightlife and try your luck! We have a VIP night lined up for you: All-you-can-eat buffet, transportation, pictures in front of the Las Vegas sign, Fremont Street and the Bellagio Fountain some "adult beverages". What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas! And no problem if wild parties aren't your cup of tea, Vegas has something for everyone!
