Welcome to Los Angeles, once you arrive you’ll pick up your car and drive to your hotel. We work with many hotels so you’ll have quite a few to choose from. With not much time in LA we recommend seeing the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Venice beach. There are dozens of great restaurants to choose from and we’d be happy to make some suggestions and reservations. We also have a list of hidden gem off the beaten path experiences you might want to see if the typical tourist destinations don’t interest you.
Depending on when you arrive you’ll have a large list of activities to choose from. Check into your hotel and relax for a bit before heading out to see Meow Wolf, an art installation that’s fantastic! Grab some dinner at some of the many great restaurants which we can make a reservation for if needed.
Some highlights that we would recommend are a helicopter to the Grand Canyon, sit by the pool or visit the spa. There’s plenty of shopping and gambling(if that’s your thing…We personally hate losing money). In the evening we recommend either seeing Absinthe or a Cirque du Soliel show(we can book your tickets for you). Whatever you do, you’ll be tired by the end of the day.
Wake up and drive towards the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Drive through Valley of Fire on the way to see many of it’s spectacular rock formations and colors. You’ll stay at the hotel at the North Rim where you’ll be able to watch the sun go down, which is the prefect time of day to see it’s beauty. Gaze at the stars after sunset.
We have a few backroads that are longer but worth the drive and it’s unbelievably beautiful. Stop at Horseshoe Bend before heading to your hotel. Relax in town, get some food and relax for the evening.
Lot’s to do here from Lake activities, boat and jet ski rentals but you can’t leave this area without seeing Antelope Canyon. Located on an Indian reservation and it does require a reservation to do the tour. YOU CAN NOT MISS THIS! Hot air ballooning in the area is also amazing.
Get up early and make your way to Moab. Do the drive through Arches National Park and if you’re really up for a challenge we can set up a private rock climbing excursion. Check into your hotel and enjoy a stroll around town.
We suggest getting up early as the drive to Escalante is one of the prettiest drives in the country and it’s where our favorite property in the US is. It’s an upscale glamping experience with luxury cabins and air streams. Once the sun goes down get ready for a treat as they have a drive in movie theatre complete with 50’s cars to sit in and free popcorn!
Get up early to explore the area and it’s many hikes. We can set up a private guide to take you to some of the local hidden gems. Horseback riding and dune buggies are an option as well. Probably best to head to Zion midday and check into your hotel. We have a few in the area to choose from.
Wake up and have a quick breakfast and explore Zion national park. We recommend hiking the narrows. One of the best hikes we’ve done. It’s a must see!
Drive to Las Vegas and take the Valley of Fire loop to see it’s many rock formations and colors. We recommend seeing the Meow Wolf exhibit, and either Absinthe or a Cirque du Soliel show. Whatever you do, you’ll be tired by the end of the day.
Wake up early and head towards Death Valley. You’ll want to detour and do the Red Rock Canyon loop. It’s on the way and really beautiful. Before checking into your hotel head over to Badwater to see their mini salt flats. Back to the hotel where you can take a swim and relax for the rest of the day.
After breakfast, head over to the sand dunes and Mosaic canyon. From there you’re already on your way to your next destination. Mammoth Lakes! Check into your hotel and you’re welcome to explore the town and surrounding nature.
Wake up early and hit the road as there is so much beauty on this drive you’re gonna want to stop every 5 minutes. You’ll have a few options here of places to stay to cater to your budget. Check in and get settled before venturing out to explore the views of Half Dome and El Capitan. Be sure to make your way to the meadows in the evening to see the deer come out to graze.
Lots of options today but we recommend hiking the Mist Trail, the Mirror Lake hike, lower Yosemite Falls or riding bikes around the valley. Don’t for get to visit the Ansel Adams museum and if you’re feeling really adventurous do the full day hike to the top of Half Dome. You’ll need tickets for this so let us know and we can arrange in getting them if they are available. Have a nice dinner at the Ahwahnee Hotel if you’re staying in Yosemite valley. The hotel is beautiful.
Wake up and drive back to LA or San Fransisco where you will return your car and fly home.
