    We’re doing the Western Highlights tour leaving LA on 21st Aug which I believe is part of the LA to the Bay tour. I’ve been told that the meeting place in LA is the Doubletree by Hilton so we’ll be staying there the night before the tour starts.

    Hi There, I’m wanting to do this trip – 90% currently… awaiting a final price break down from agent. It would be from 31st July into Aug. My concern is accomodation the night before – have you found somewhere with a good price?

    Hi kirakira , im arriving in La on Aug 21st, doing LA Explorer 4 nights , then LA to the Bay from Aug 25th to September 5th..i was told about the meeting place being there too, im just waiting for confirmation .

    Hi Moo, the best thing to do is to ask your travel agent to book you a nights pre-accomodation in the same hotel as where your Tour starts ..i believe most ppl to do that..are you planning on doing LA to the Bay?
