Western Express - PRIVATE AIR TOUR

Trip Itinerary

Day 1

Las Vegas Arrival

Welcome to Las Vegas, a desert oasis of neon lights, non-stop excitement and tons of fun around every corner. Upon arrival at McCarran International Airport, transfer independently to your hotel where you will meet your Tour Director. Free time this evening allows you to experience the sights and sounds of this wonderland first hand. Walk the famous Strip lined with mega-resorts, place a bet at one of the many casinos, dine at world-class restaurants, catch the latest star-studded show, or enjoy breathtaking views during a 30-minute ride on the all-new, 550-foot tall “High Roller” … the world’s tallest observation wheel and the most exciting attraction to hit the Strip.

Day 2

Las Vegas – Yosemite

Your journey begins this morning with a short flight onboard a private aircraft from Las Vegas to Merced, the gateway to Yosemite National Park. Upon arrival in Merced you’ll board a motorcoach and retrace the original route to Yosemite along Highway 140, the first route into the park that brought travelers directly to the valley floor along the Merced River Canyon. Once inside the park you will be introduced to some of Yosemite’s most famous and awe-inspiring scenery, including Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, El Capitan, Tunnel View, and Bridalveil Falls. Postcard-perfect pictures abound so be sure to have your camera ready. (Breakfast)

Day 3

Yosemite – Sonoma – San Francisco

Leaving the wonder of Yosemite behind, today you’ll make your way west via motorcoach to Northern California’s beloved City by the Bay, San Francisco. En route we visit a winery in the famed Napa Valley and you will have time to explore the quaint town of Sonoma. Considered one of the greatest cities in the world for many reasons, San Francisco’s 49 square miles of distinctive terrain – water on one side, hills on the other – leads to spectacular views, a multitude of ethnically diverse neighborhoods and one-of-a-kind experiences. (Breakfast)

Day 4

San Francisco

This morning, a comprehensive city tour provides a fun and exciting way to get an overview of the city and enables you to truly appreciate many of San Francisco’s most famous sights, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Union Square, and Fisherman’s Wharf. And, as no visit would be complete without taking a cruise on the Bay, you’ll set sail, passing the famous PIER 39 sea lions while making your way along the historic waterfront which reveals the city’s spectacular skyline. Be sure to take full advantage of prime photo opportunities with unobstructed views in every direction as you glide under the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and circle the notorious Alcatraz Island. The remainder of the day is yours to explore the city’s amazing sights, scenes, and neighborhoods at your leisure. Ever ride a national landmark? Then consider hopping on one of San Francisco’s historic cable cars. And for an extra thrill, hang off the running board, Doris Day-style. (Breakfast)

Day 5

San Francisco – 17 Mile Drive – Monterey – California's Central Coast

Heading south this morning via motorcoach you’ll embark on an exhilarating journey along one of the most scenic roads in the world, 17-Mile Drive. Hugging the Pacific coastline while passing emerald green fairways and stunning estates, this coastal landmark runs through Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach. Afterward, take in the sights, sounds and smells of Monterey at Old Fisherman’s Wharf in downtown and explore Cannery Row’s historic waterfront district, John Steinbeck’s inspiration for his novel of the same name. Continuing south, Pacific Coast Highway’s twisting, cliff-hugging route takes you through the quaint village of Carmel-by-the-Sea and Big Sur where mountains plunge into the Pacific Ocean. Further south, the landscape mellows to oak-studded hills as the highway passes Hearst Castle and Morro Bay. From here, a short distance inland is San Luis Obispo and the heart of California’s Central Coast. (Breakfast)

Day 6

California's Central Coast – Santa Barbara – Los Angeles

After breakfast enjoy visiting the small towns of San Luis Obispo and Solvang as you travel south to the charming coastal city of Santa Barbara, also known as “The American Riviera”. After some time perusing shops along State Street, you will journey south towards Los Angeles. Evening at leisure in downtown LA. (Breakfast)

Day 7

Los Angeles

Today’s comprehensive tour of Los Angeles enables you to get a true taste of Southern California. You’ll explore the seaside communities of Marina del Rey, Venice whose boardwalk is famous for its Muscle Beach, and Santa Monica, home to one of California’s oldest pleasure piers. You’ll also glimpse some of the glitz and glamour of Hollywood while checking out the Walk of Fame where more than 2,400 stars are embedded in the sidewalk, TCL Chinese Theatre (formerly Grauman’s Chinese Theatre), the Sunset Strip, and Beverly Hills where you just might catch a celebrity shopper or two along Rodeo Drive. (Breakfast)

Day 8

Today we transfer to the Airport where you will board a private aircraft for the short flight back to Las Vegas. Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel. Remainder of day is at leisure. (Breakfast)
