Itinerary

San Francisco Arrive at any time Gear up and get ready for a night out with your CEO and group in San Francisco. Wander through Union Square and along Market Street in search of some fun. Use this time to mingle, get comfortable with your new travel buddies, and indulge in some lively nightlife at the best bars, live music venues, and food joints that San Francisco has to offer.
San Francisco/Yosemite National Park Today, let the scenery guide you out of San Francisco across the Bay Bridge and onwards through California's Central Valley. Stop, nestled between the Coastal Range and Sierra Nevadas to stretch your legs and sample some of the freshest produce in the country. Then tip your head back and relax as you continue to wind through looming mountains to reach Yosemite National Park... your next destination.
Yosemite National Park/Sierra Nevadas Let your mind wander as you hike past roaring waterfalls and giant sequoias. Gaze in wonder at Yosemite's magnificent peaks and granite domes before turning your attention to the tranquil nature of the valley floor. Snap photos or simply take in the splendour of one of the country's most beautiful national parks.
Sierra Nevadas/Las Vegas Experience a land of extremes in Death Valley National Park. Visit the driest, the hottest, and the lowest places in the U.S. From Badwater Basin to Zabriskie Point and Dante's View to Furnace Creek – it is easy to fall in love with this desolate landscape. The adventure doesn't stop here! Continue on to the Las Vegas Strip for a truly unforgettable evening of fun with your fellow trip mates. If you decide you want to cruise Vegas in style head out on an optional VIP party limo ride.
Las Vegas/Grand Canyon Cruise along historic Route 66 en route to the magnificent Grand Canyon. Leave ghost towns and funky roadside attractions behind and bask in the fading sun at the canyon's edge. Get ready to feel incredibly small as the world opens up at your feet.
Grand Canyon/Lake Havasu Grab a buddy or set off on your own into one of the deepest canyons in the world. Flip a coin to decide if you should hike along the rim or down into the canyon itself (just remember if you hike down you must hike up). Not feeling a hike? That's cool, you have the option to splurge on an unforgettable helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. Then head onwards to Lake Havasu where you can dip a toe or dive right in to the crystal-clear waters of the Colorado River.
Lake Havasu/Los Angeles Your visit to Joshua Tree National Park will be short and sweet but no less impactful. Trek amongst the boulders and famous Joshua trees and find the unexpected beauty and serenity of such a barren landscape. Don't forget to watch for celebrities as you pass by some iconic sites into California's most glamorous city. Now, it’s time to say goodbye to your group of newfound friends. Be sure to sneak in some last-minute photos and hugs before you head on your way.
