Day one

Fly to Los Angeles, and transfer to your hotel in Buena Park in southern Los Angeles for a two-night stay.

Day two

Join today's optional excursion to San Diego. Highlights include a visit to the Gaslamp District - now a hip urban playground offering an array of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities; a trip Downtown to see one of the most eclectic metropolitan areas in the country; and a stop at the Santa Fe railroad depot - an example of California's Spanish heritage.

Day three

Board the coach to travel north from LA - enjoying a brief visit to the star-studded streets of Hollywood - along the stunning Pacific shoreline to Pismo Beach, a seaside community famed for its beach and pier.

Day four

Today we continue along the Pacific coast, taking in more of its famous attractions along the way. We'll stop at Carmel-by-the-Sea, an artistic community renowned for its art galleries and its former civil servant, Clint Eastwood, visit Monterey - a historic waterfront town immortalised in Steinbeck's classic 'Cannery Row' - and follow the scenic 17-Mile Drive, before arriving this evening in San Francisco.

Day five

Our optional guided city tour is a introduction to the City by the Bay's colourful neighbourhoods, fresh sea air and Golden Gate bridge. This evening, take a stroll through Chinatown, or take a cable-car down to Fisherman's Wharf, home to sidewalk seafood vendors, souvenir shops, and many bars and restaurants.

Day six

Today we leave the coast and journey east into the Sierra Nevada to Yosemite national park. Renowned for its valley, granite domes and peaks, waterfalls and giant sequoias, this wilderness offers a spectacle that is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip. Tonight you'll stay in Fresno, in California's fertile central valley.

Day seven

Sit back and relax on a journey taking you from California into Nevada. Here, you'll stay overnight in the small resort-town of Laughlin, on the banks of the Colorado river and at the southern tip of Nevada.

Day eight

Travel into the Nevada Desert to the Grand Canyon. A giant chasm carved over millennia through the rocks of the Colorado Plateau. There will be an opportunity to take our optional helicopter flight over this natural wonder before we head to the bright lights of Las Vegas - the world's most famous desert playground.

Day nine

Enjoy a free day exploring Vegas's many attractions, or join our optional excursion to the Hoover Dam.

Day 10

Journey back, through the desert, to Los Angeles' Airport, for the return overnight flight.

Day 11

Arrive back in the UK.
