Trip highlights

  • Try local clam chowder while strolling along Fisherman's Wharf
  • Ride Napa Valley's Wine Train through the beautiful countryside

Exploring the lively San Francisco is easy with so many transport options. Climb aboard the famous cable cars, or hire a bike and cycle across the Golden Gate bridge like the locals. Then stop off in one of the many local food trucks, offering everything from burgers to curry to cookies. Make sure you take a trip over to Alcatraz and learn the history of this old prison.

Leave all your troubles behind as you arrive into the beautiful Napa Valley. Surrounded by rolling hills all covered in grapevines, you'll be spoilt for choice of which vineyard to explore and tasting rooms to visit. Take a ride on the historic Napa Valley Wine Train to taste some delicious wines as you watch the scenery go by.

You'll be desperate to get in the water the second you arrive at the edge of the glittering, blue topaz Lake Tahoe. Climb into a kayak or test your balance on a stand up paddle board, then take a stroll around the lake front towns that dot the shoreline.

Take a stroll, or hike, through Yosemite National Park's stunning natural beauty.

Finish off this exciting tour of California with a relaxing stay in the beautiful coastal town of Santa Barbara. If the beach isn't your thing, stroll down the leafy streets lined with designer boutiques, delicious restaurants and waterfront busy with yachts, kayaks and stand up paddle boarders.
