Tour Itinerary

Feast like a king in San Francisco's Chinatown, get stars in your eyes in glitzy Hollywood, feel the force of nature at the Grand Canyon and road trip down one of the most iconic roads in American history, all in 2 weeks, on California and the Golden West.

Day 1 - Arrive Los Angeles (2 Nights)
Welcome to the land where it's always 70 degrees and sunny, California. Arriving today, you'll meet up with your Travel Director in the afternoon before getting to know Anaheim, your home for the next two nights. You'll find plenty of dining and entertainment options with Disneyland nearby.
Accommodation: Clarion Hotel Anaheim Resort

Day 2 - Los Angeles Sightseeing and Free Time
Ready to get stars in your eyes? This morning's sightseeing tour will show you the all-out glitz and glamour of LA, visiting the wealthy mansions of Beverly Hills, the palm lined streets of Santa Monica, the iconic Sunset Boulevard, and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is just a stone's throw from the beacon of Hollywood, the Dolby Theatre, home of the Academy Awards. With your afternoon free maybe explore on your own.

Day 3 - Los Angeles – Phoenix
Starting in Los Angeles, you will visit the San Gorgonio Pass Wind Farm, one of the windiest places in the United States. It features thousands of wind turbines that power the popular Coachella Valley resort towns. Passing through the resort town of Palm Springs, you will be crossing the Arizona state line into the 'Valley of the Sun', a region that boasts a massive 300 days of sunshine per year. Catching your first glimpse of the mighty Colorado River, your final destination for today is exciting Phoenix.
Accommodation: Hampton Inn and Suites Phoenix Downtown

Day 4 - Phoenix - Flagstaff (2 Nights)
Heading North out of Phoenix, today you will witness the impressive saguaro cacti in their arid habitat. As you make your way to the small town of Sedona you will notice the red rock landscape provides a stunning backdrop for artists and craftsmen alike. Sedona lives up to its reputation as an artist's enclave, as it is recognized as one of America's best small cities for the arts and a haven for New Age enthusiasts. On your way from Sedona to Flagstaff, you will pass through the heart of Oak Creek Canyon. Located in the Coconino National Forest, it is arguably the most scenic drive in all of Arizona. With red sandstone walls on one side of the road and the lush river gorge canyon on the other, you can expect a breathtaking panoramic view.
Accommodation: Days Hotel
Meals: Breakfast

Day 5 - Flagstaff - Grand Canyon - Flagstaff
Start today in style with your sights firmly set on one of the world's seven natural wonders, the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage Listed Grand Canyon. After learning in-depth with our Local Specialist you'll discover more about the geological formation of the Canyon, and then it's up to you how you wish to explore it further. Still flying high from an incredible day, you'll finish up this evening in the Arizonan escape town of Flagstaff, a laid back outpost on historic Route 66.

Day 6 - Flagstaff – Historic Route 66 – Las Vegas (2 Nights)
Ready to get your kicks on Route 66? Today's the day to do it. A symbol of the American dream, Route 66 has been eternally immortalized by literature and movies and still to this day represents the ultimate American road trip. You'll be stopping by Seligman and Kingman en route to Vegas, two iconic outposts that are a real taste of all things Americana, complete with classic motels, kitsch petrol pumps and steaming slices of Apple pie. Finally, as if by magic, you'll slowly spot the neon lights of Las Vegas looming in the distance; an entertainment oasis surrounded by dry desert with a reputation almost as big as the fortune's many have made (and lost) there.
Accommodation: Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino

Day 7 - Las Vegas Free Time
With a full day in Sin City, it's entirely up to you how to explore the entertainment capital of the world. The casinos, the all you can eat buffets, the glittering roof top pools, the biggest names in show business - they're all here for the taking. Or if you're up for it, to help tailor your Vegas experience, we've also got a whole suite of enticing Optional Experiences lined up to help you see a different side of Vegas. You could wake up early for a western style breakfast and cowboy trail ride through the mountains, or heading over to Hoover Dam to stand 900 metres above the Colorado River to admire the US's biggest man made reservoir, Lake Mead. Or perhaps a visit to the Mob Museum, or a singalong at 'Vegas! The Show' are more your style? Whatever you choose, today is guaranteed to be one to remember.

Day 8 - Las Vegas – Visalia
Leaving Vegas a little lighter in the pocket but rich in memories, you'll head for the Mojave Desert this morning. As the driest desert in the US you'd expect nothing more than barren landscape as you drive through, so prepare to be surprised as you pass rare and beautiful flora, wildlife and the iconic Joshua Tree, which only grows right here in the Mojave. Admiring the dramatic Mojave Desert and continuing through into the San Joaquin Valley, you'll finish up today in the agricultural hub of Visalia. With a Downtown area that boasts old world charm and a wide selection of tasty restaurants, tonight's dinner will no doubt be filled with chat about what to expect from glorious Yosemite tomorrow.
Accommodation: Wyndham Visalia

Day 9 - Visalia – Yosemite National Park – Modesto
Awe inspiring nature at its finest, Yosemite will challenge all other national parks you've previously visited to stake its claim as the most beautiful. The third oldest national park in the US and a UNESCO World Heritage site, this patch of heaven is all emerald green valleys, cascading waterfalls and pine scented forests, all framed by the iconic Half Dome and the imposing presence of El Capitan. Take your time soaking it all in and exploring the various trails and picnic areas before heading on to Modesto, one of the greatest agricultural areas of the nation and the home of the Ernest & Julio Gallo Winery.
Accommodation: DoubleTree Modesto

Day 10 - Modesto – San Francisco (2 Nights)
Feeling the ocean breeze moving ever closer you'll head back to the Californian coast today, crossing the Bay Bridge into one of the West Coast's best loved cities, San Francisco. A historical hub for progressive thinkers and creatives, San Fran's infamously hilly landscape will instantly win you over as you spy the old-fashioned cable cars slowly rising and falling on the horizon. Explore the 'City by the Bay' on a sightseeing tour that visits Fisherman's Wharf, the Palace of Fine Arts, the lush Presidio area and Italian influenced North Beach. This evening you could opt to try our Chinatown walking tour, exploring the markets, dim sum joints and herb shops of America's oldest Chinatown before dining family style at a decadent Chinese feast.
Accommodation: Hotel Union Square

Day 11 - San Francisco Free Time
We hope you're hungry as you're off to a San Fran institution, Boudin Bakery, who have been producing their very special 'Mother Dough' to create sourdough loaves since 1849 for an Iconic Breakfast. Appetites satisfied, the rest of today is then free for you to explore your way. If it's icons you're after why not join us for an optional walk along the Golden Gate Bridge followed by a cruise around the bay, taking in Alcatraz Island en route, or perhaps you'd prefer to head out to Muir Woods to appreciate the towering, ancient red wood trees that grow here, followed by a visit to the pretty seaside community of Sausalito. Wine connoisseurs, you're also taken care of with a full day outing to the Napa and Sonoma wineries. Whatever you choose, make your last day an extra special one, whichever way you choose to explore.
Meals: Iconic Breakfast

Day 12 - San Francisco - Carmel - Monterey - San Luis Obispo
Hugging the Pacific coastline you'll make your first stop today in Carmel-by-the-Sea. A former heaven for artists and writers, this pretty town has something of an English countryside feel to it thanks to the 1920's gable roofed cottages dotted about. After taking a stroll along Ocean Avenue, you'll journey on to Monterey, keeping a look out for seals, sea lions, dolphins and even whales on the way. A Spanish and Mexican influenced city, you'll visit Cannery Row, a place immortalized by John Steinbeck's novel of the same name that depicts the sardine canning business that was Monterey's lifeblood for the first half of the 20th century. Finally, you'll finish up in San Luis Obispo.
Accommodation: Kinney Hotel

Day 13 - San Luis Obispo - Santa Barbara
Venturing into the scenic wine country of the Central Coast this morning, you'll almost be able to smell the delicious pinot noir wines that are grow in this region. Drive through rolling hills and sunny valleys peppered with wineries before pulling in to Santa Barbara, where the perfect weather, red tiled roofs and bougainvillea strewn walls will have you thinking you've been transported to the Mediterranean. With an afternoon at your disposal, your first stop should undoubtedly be the 'Queen of the Missions' church, a Roman esque and still active parish church that sits perched above the city, boasting impressive Chumash artwork and mausoleums dedicated to California's earliest settlers. Craving seafood? Head to Stearn's Wharf, the oldest operating wharf on the West Coast, to take your pick of the day's catch.
Accommodation: Best Western Plus Pepper Tree Inn
Meals: Breakfast

Day 14 - Santa Barbara – Depart Los Angeles
Enjoy every second of the drive today as you follow the coast all the way back to the 'City of Angels', Los Angeles. You'll stop by Venice Beach for one final dose of vitamin sea, before your trip comes to end at Los Angeles International Airport. California and the Golden West, you've been unbeatable!

Hygiene and Safety Protocols for Costsaver Tours

Costsaver has introduced these enhanced hygiene protocols – for you and team members.

Costsaver asks that you please take personal responsibility for your wellbeing. This begins with packing any personal protective equipment and sanitizers you require. Please adopt physical distancing and hygiene practises throughout your pre-trip travel arrangements and follow all health instruction whether physical signage, or requests from the professional staff once you are vacationing.

Expertly Trained Travel Directors

Travel Director training equips them with enhanced hygiene and physical distancing procedures. During your trip, they will operate with a duty of care and monitor the hygiene etiquette of the guests, reacting and advising as needed, to ensure high standards are maintained. Before you travel, Costsaver will also keep you well informed about new protocols required in these areas, and ask that you cooperate with and heed the advice and direction of Travel Directors while on your trip. The Travel Directors have preventative measures in place to try and ensure your well-being and in the event that any unexpected issues arise on trip, they will activate additional protocols.

Stringent On-the-Road Protocols

The customized luxury coaches are sanitised before the start of your trip and have always been kept to very high standards. Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Costsaver have taken additional measures to elevate hygiene and sanitary practices in accordance with guidance from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and as required, applicable government regulations. The Driver training provides them with the latest hygiene protocols. They will clean and disinfect all surfaces including handrails, door handles, tables, seats, air-conditioning filters and overhead lockers on a daily basis. All the guests are asked to follow hygiene practices recommended by the World Health Organisation including the thorough and regular washing of hands and sanitising when required. Hand sanitiser is freely available on board for your use throughout the day. Please bring your own washable face mask and gloves with you, and additional hand sanitiser to make you feel comfortable, as these will be required to be worn in public in some countries. Should an unexpected situation arise, additional face masks, rubber gloves, antiviral sprays and wipes will be available for guest distribution on all trips.

A Full Team of Support 24/7

It’s not just your Travel Director and Driver who will be taking care of you. Behind the scenes, the operations and guest support teams are in contact with them and on call 24/7, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands.

Physical Distancing

Adapting to the right size groups, based on government distancing requirements, you can rest assured that you will travel with the comfort of your own personal space. Have peace of mind that all of the experiences, hotels and restaurants you’ll enjoy on your trip have been vetted to ensure they adhere to physical distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Trusted Partners, Exceptional Standards

Costsaver is very selective in who they work with and choose to only use hotels, restaurants, ground handlers and venues that take the well-being of the guests as seriously as Costsaver does and agrees to meet expected guidelines and specifications. Costsaver only works with establishments that they are confident will consistently adhere to their high standards.

Always in the Know

As part of The Travel Corporation (TTC) , Costsaver is kept up to date with all government advisories and travel alerts on a daily basis and is continually in touch with all of the partners on the ground in each destination. Also, rest assured that during your trip, the teams work to ensure the supplier partners (hotels, restaurants, museums and other venues) are also applying the same standard to these new hygiene and distancing protocols, to the extent possible.

Questions & Answers

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

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.
