Itinerary

Day 1 : Los Angeles - Santa Barbara - 17 Mile Drive - Bay Area

From Los Angeles our first stop is in Santa Barbara - the “American Riviera.” Just 90 miles north of Los Angeles, this town has tempted southern Californians for decades. Santa Barbara is known for its natural beauty, stunning beaches, vineyards and its fine dining. This town has thrived on its reputation for being a haven for the young, intelligent and hip of America, drawing in visitors to this city of Spanish Colonial architecture. Whether it’s the beaches that inspire surfers and sunbathers, the marine wildlife, or the succulent dining, Santa Barbara is a city of charm for everyone. Next we travel to the Monterey Peninsula and take in the scenery of the California coast. Along the shores you may see some of the local marine life - sea lions, and seals sunning themselves on the rocks. From here we begin the famous 17 mile drive along the coastline. This drive is known for passing through the world class golf courses of Pebble Beach and the multi-million dollar mansions overlooking the gorgeous coastline. After a visit to the iconic Lone Pine in the 17 mile drive, we continue to our hotel in Bay Area.

Day 2 : Stanford University - San Francisco City Tour

In the morning we visit Stanford University, one of the world’s leading research institutions and one of the top universities in the country. Built in the 19th century by a railroad tycoon, the normally quiet campus has built a sterling reputation for being a university that recruits the best and brightest minds. From Stanford we begin our tour of San Francisco by crossing the span of the Golden Gate Bridge. Explore the markets of Fisherman’s Wharf, and marvel at the architectures of the Palace of Fine Arts. While in the city you’ll have the option to take a bay cruise and get a unique look at the beautiful skyline of the city, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge, Angel, Treasure and the infamous Alcatraz Island. Around 2 PM you’ll have the opportunity to explore the city at your own discretion or you can join us for an extended tour of the city. This 3-hour tour will take you to the Catholic St. Mary Cathedral, the Twin Peaks, the Civic Center and the vibrant “gay capitol of the world,” the Castro District. After dinner we return to the hotel in Modesto.

Standard Hotel (2 start to 3 star): Clarion Modesto or similar

Day 3 : Yosemite National Park - Los Angeles

From the city’s marvels we travel out to the natural beauty of Yosemite National Park, California’s most well-known national park. Yosemite is a towering force of water and granite, known for its mighty waterfalls, ancient trees, and huge cliffs. Yosemite is a region of deep valleys and glaciers. You’ll be in awe of the giant sequoias covering the 1700 square miles of the park. The pristine quality of the park is what draws visitors every year, but what makes these visitors stay are the natural landmarks like El Captain, the tallest waterfall in America - Yosemite Falls, the Half Dome at the Tunnel viewpoint and Glacier Point. After our tour of the park, we travel back to Los Angeles, arriving in the city by evening.

**Note: Yosemite National Park will be substituted with SFO31905 in the winter or anytime encounters inclement weather.
