Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Heya West Coast wanderer, wait 'til you see the treats we have in store for you. We'll be immersed in cool California vibes after a stint in Nevada's wild Vegas. We'll hike around Yosemite Valley, watch the sun set behind the city of San Fran & swim in the paradise of Bass Lake. 7-days abroad never looked so good.

Day 1 - Arrive Las Vegas
Welcome to Vegas, baby! You have today all to yourself but you'''ll need to run to a tight schedule to fit in all of Vegas' weird and wonderful charms. Travel the world in a day, taking in the famous Bellagio fountain, a Venetian gondola and even an Egyptian pyramid, all whilst staying firmly within the city's realm. Feeling romantic? Stop by and see one of the many Elvis impersonators for a shotgun wedding ceremony, and maybe even get hitched yourself...(joking). Tonight live like a baller while you cruise along the 'Strip' in a party bus and don't stress, the bills on us. Later, you'''ll witness the 24-hour party scene first hand when you head out for a night with the crew.

Day 2 - Las Vegas to Bass Lake via San Joaquin Valley
From the ridiculously flashy Vegas '''Strip''' to the outdoor capital of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, this change of scenery will bring you and the crew back to nature again.Hungry for In n Out Burger? Dumb question. Get your fast food fix on this West Coast takeaway fave, then sit back and relax as we head to our next destination.We'll make a quick pitstop as we blaze through the Mojave Desert and its iconic Joshua trees on the way to blissful Bass Lake.This afternoon you'''ll become enamored with the tranquility of Bass Lake. Wind down in your chalet after a long day of travel, taking in your picturesque surroundings. Later on, kick back and enjoy the view from the chalet deck - it is nothing short of spectacular. Take a dip in the pool, warm up in the jacuzzi and breathe in the fresh mountain air while getting some much needed R & R after fast and furious Vegas.

Day 3 - Bass Lake and Yosemite National Park
This beautiful mountain paradise is perfect for relaxation and recuperation but it certainly isn'''t a one trick pony. Bass Lake offers plenty of watersports and adventurous options, seasonal weather permitting.Back at our Bass Lake base, there'll no doubt be a need for that jacuzzi and a night of staring up at the starry skies. This is what we call living.

Day 4 - Bass Lake to San Francisco
Today we bid farewell to this achingly picturesque spot full of nature and tranquility and look forward to a very different experience as a crew of city slickers once more.Colourful characters, freethinkers, and artists have all descended upon San Francisco to make this place what it is. Via Oakland and the San Joaquin Valley, we will descend upon the treasure of beatnik culture, cable cars and the Golden Gate Bridge. Tonight really does give #NOREGRETS its meaning, as we take you on an optional cruise of the city's Bay and under the famous bridge. Sipping a drink and toasting your group to the good times had and yet to come as the sun sets, is a truly unforgettable moment.

Days 5 to 6 - San Francisco
You have a whole two days here in San Francisco, so better make the most of it. A renowned foodie city that brought us the likes of sourdough, fortune cookies and chowder, it would be wrong not to eat and drink yourself silly at just some of the 3000 cafes, restaurants, food trucks and more. Stuffed to capacity, why not work it off by scaling the hilly streets or simply jump in a cable car for a spot of sightseeing without the effort.Now that you have the city sussed you can dive a little deeper and tap into what you didn't tick off yesterday with a full free day to do your thing. See the sea lions of Pier 39, explore the thriving street food scene, grab an Irish coffee at Buena Vista cafe, or kick it in Chinatown. As the old saying goes 'I left my heart in San Francisco' will ring true.

Day 7 - Depart San Francisco
This morning the tour ends and it'''s time to say goodbye to your new friends.

Please Note: This tour is only applicable for 18 to 35 year olds.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
