WHAT TO EXPECT

LOS ANGELES – SANTA BARBARA – 17 MILE DRIVE – CARMEL

The first day will be dedicated to the popular stretch of California coastline dubbed "Central Coast California" where we'll take the time to visit some great seaside towns including Santa Barbara, Solvang, and Carmel.

Here, we can visit the historic main street and also have some time to stroll around and enjoy some local shops, art galleries and coffee shops. During the morning, we will also stop by a Spanish Mission to learn about these religious outposts that were popular in the 19th century and that helped shape California.
The second day we'll reach San Francisco in the morning and we'll start the exploration by hopping aboard one of the popular Bay Cruises. After all, San Francisco is The City By The Bay and there is no better way to admire its skyline than from the water.

Some of the sites that we'll get to see from the Cruise are the Transamerica Pyramid, The iconic Golden Gate Bridge, the infamous Alcatraz Island, the Sea-lions of Fisherman Wharf's, the Marin County across the Bay and much more. When we come back from the cruise, we'll have some free time to enjoy lunch by Pier 39.

The 3rd Day of this Tour will change according to the season and especially the weather. Unfortunately, during the winter months, we cannot follow our traditional Yosemite Route but there is instead a very informative stop at  Monterey and Carmel.
SUMMER DAYS -- During the warm summer months, we will continue our tour crossing the farmland area of the Joaquin Valley to reach the Yosemite National Park, a staggering natural reserve that extends for over 1,200 square miles packed with forests, lakes, mountains, and glaciers.
WINTER DAYS -- Although we won't be able to visit the Yosemite National Park, during our winter months we will have the chance to visit the beautiful town of Monterrey right on one of the most pristine stretches of Coastlines in California. The seaside town is famous for its historic Wharf and the tree-lined main street "Cannery Row" where you will have the chance to visit local boutiques and coffee shops.

We will continue our ride through the desert to reach the famous capital of the Gambling World -- Las Vegas! It will take us between 4 to 5 hours to reach Vegas so we will break during our morning at the Outlet Mall in Barstow. Here we can all take some time to find great bargains and deals at popular retail stores such as Adidas, Nike, Levi's Ralph Lauren and more.
We should be able to reach Las Vegas by the early to late afternoon depending on traffic. 
The last day, we'll go visit the famous Hoover Dam. We'll learn some historical facts and also have the chance to see what building the Dam changed in the area including the formation of the Lake Mead

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
